“You got lucky, Sunny!” Yash stood up, took out the betting contract from his pocket, and crumpled it into a ball before throwing it at him.
Sunny caught the ball of paper, uncrumpled it to see if it was correct, and immediately tore it up.
“You would’ve lost even if you didn’t cheat. Why is it so hard for you to accept that? How about another game if you can’t accept it? If you lose, you’re going to call me ‘daddy’! Are you brave enough to take up that offer?”
“I don’t have that much time to play with you!” Yash obviously did not dare to play anymore. His expression turned sullen, and he turned around to bring his companions away in defeat.
Sunny could finally hold his head high.
On one side, Corinne leaned lazily against the sofa, exited the game, opened her chat group [Old Driver’s Club], and moved her finger to send a big reward to the group. [Good game. This is for you!]
Aaron’s avatar then popped up. [You asked us to join you in a game, but now that it’s over, you’re just going to give us some rewards to shoo us away?]
Corinne replied, [What do you want?]
[You!] Aaron sent a coquettish emoticon.
Another profile picture of a landscape shot popped up with the accompanying username Caesar. [ It’s been a while since you last came to the company, boss.]
[Yeah!] Aaron agreed.
Corinne answered, [I’ll find a time to go there in the next few days. Be good boys. okay?]
After persuading her subordinates, Corinne put away her phone, got up, and left.
“Corinne, wait!” Sunny called her to stop.
Corinne stood there and said, “Anything else, Mister Sunny?”
Sunny got up, walked over, and looked at her with an awkward yet somewhat unfriendly gaze.” Ahem! Why did you help me when I treated you badly in the past?”
Corinne said, “Consider it a reward for helping me out earlier.”
Sunny did not take her answer seriously. “Tch! You’re a sly girl, so I doubt they’d be able to do anything to you even if I didn’t help you at the time. In fact, I think you’d be the one who’ll teach them a lesson!”
“You flatter me.” Corinne pursed her lips slightly. She glanced at the bruises on the corners of his eyes and mouth, then cocked her eyebrow and said, “I’m curious, Mister Sunny. Why didn’t you call your bodyguards to help you when you were beaten up on your own turf?”
Sunny had a stubborn expression. “If I did, they’d tell my dad and brother. I don’t want either of them to know about it.”
Corinne raised her hand and patted him on the shoulder. “Put your ego aside when it comes to your family. Your safety is more important than anything in times of danger, and there’s no need to let yourself suffer just for the sake of your ego.”
Sunny’s eyes flickered and he frowned uncomfortably. “You don’t need to teach me how to live!”
Corinne withdrew her hand and shrugged indifferently. “Well, just pretend I didn’t say anything.”
Seeing that Corinne was about to leave, Sunny quickly chased after her and said arrogantly, “Hey, Corinne! I’m willing to be friends with you since you’ve helped me out today, and you’re also a good gamer!”
Corinne halted in her footsteps and looked at him. “You want to be friends with me? Did you forget that I snatched your sister’s man from her?”
Sunny raised his chin. “I’ll never forget that, of course, but I know that you and Jeremy aren’t truly husband and wife.”
Corinne cocked her eyebrow. “Did you see that?”
Sunny said earnestly, “I don’t need to. I’m confident that Jeremy will neither betray my sister nor sleep with you.”
Corinne narrowed her eyes. “Is that so? Then why didn’t your sister marry him? I would have nothing to do with either of them if that had been the case.”
Sunny frowned worriedly and said, “The two of them face a stumbling block in the form of conflict. between the older generations of both our families, but everything will be fine for them in the future. Now that you and I are friends, I’m going to just remind you that you’re just a tool. Jeremy was forced to marry you because of his grandfather, so please don’t develop any feelings for him. unless you want to get hurt. The only person that Jeremy will marry is my sister.”
