A bit of reciprocity was not bad at all, and fortunately for Corinne, she was given the paintings that she wanted.
“Well, say thanks to your boss for me!”
Corinne then rang the doorbell and asked the butler to send someone out to help her bring in the three paintings.
Tommy received a message on his phone, and he glanced down to read it before raising his head. to look at Corinne. “Ma’am, Mister Jeremy wanted me to ask you if there’s anything you’d like to eat tonight.”
Corinne was taken aback. “He’s coming back for dinner tonight?”
Tommy nodded. “I believe so.”
Corinne frowned unhappily, wondering why he chose to return when Pamela was no longer watching over the two of them all the time.
“Anything’s fine. I’m not picky!”
“I see… Alright then!” Tommy followed Jeremy’s instructions to watch Corinne enter the house safely before driving off.
At that moment in Holden Group, Jeremy-who had just ended his meeting-leaned lazily on his seat while massaging his brows wearily.
His female secretary knocked on the door to inform him, “Sir, Mister Sunny Rivera came some time ago. He wants to see you, and he’s been waiting in the reception room for an hour now.”
Jeremy glanced at her insipidly. “Let him in.”
The female secretary brought Sunny to the door of Jeremy’s office.
Sunny strode into the office and began to observe Jeremy nervously as if looking for some clues.” Are you okay, Jeremy? What happened last night?”
Jeremy was reviewing a file from a folder that he had spread open, and as soon as he heard that, he raised his eyebrows and glanced at him. “Did you think something happened to me?”
Sunny frowned angrily and said, “How would I know? Corinne called me last using your phone and said that you needed my sister’s help with something. I told her that my sister is abroad, and she hung up without saying anything when I asked her about it! Why did you need my sister’s help. yesterday?”
Jeremy’s face soured when he recalled the way Corinne tried so desperately to find a woman for him the previous night. “How did she know about your sister?”
Sunny had a ‘duh’ look on his face as he said, “I told her. I reminded her not to get any ideas about
you because you’ll only be my sister’s man.”
Jeremy frowned, shot Sunny a cold look, and warned sternly, “Don’t talk nonsense in front of her again.”
Sunny was still stubborn. “But I’m not wrong! Did you forget that my sister has been waiting for you all this time? You and her are-”
“Hey, hey! Sunny’s here, too! Is it summer vacation already? Well, come and join us for some fun, then!” Zeke strutted in leisurely and inadvertently interrupted Sunny’s words.
As soon as Sunny heard the word ‘fun’, he immediately got excited and completely forgot about. the conflicted feelings he had. His handsome eyes widened as he asked eagerly. “Where are we going?”
Zeke smiled brightly and said, “It’s been a while since I went to Castle Horse Ranch! My little. Hurricane probably misses me a lot by now! The weather’s been pretty good recently too, so I’m thinking of going there for two days!”
Hurricane was the name that Zeke gave to his horse.
Sunny’s eyes lit up. “Horseback riding? Count me in!”
Zeke smiled, then raised his chin at Jeremy who was sitting behind the desk. “You coming. Jeremy?”
Jeremy looked down at the document and said without even looking up. “You guys go ahead. I don’t have the time.”
Zeke clicked his tongue. “What do you mean, you don’t have time? Tomorrow’s a weekend, and you don’t have to come to the company during the weekend, do you? By the way, you should invite your wife, too. Since the two of you haven’t gone on a honeymoon yet, it’ll be the perfect chance. to bring her out and have some fun!”
