Zeke looked at Sunny and teased him. “Hey, Sunny, did you hear that? Jeremy is asking you to treat us again.”
Sunny looked so focused staring at Corinne that he was startled when he heard Zeke calling him. Sheepishly, he said, “Um… My brother suspended my car, and I spent all of my money on last night’s dinner. I don’t have any money left on me, so I can’t treat tonight…”
Jeremy looked indifferent and raised his chin. “It’s alright. It’s on her tonight.”
When Corinne realized Jeremy was talking about her, her cheeks puffed like balloons as she furrowed her eyebrows.
So weird! Why should she treat them to dinner? She did not know them nor was she close to them. Most importantly, Jeremy was the one who insisted on bringing her here.
Everyone had their eyes on Corinne, who was going to buy them dinner tonight.
Corinne had no intention of that, however, and proceeded to say. “No, I’m not…”
Jeremy grabbed her shoulder and pulled her toward him before she could finish her sentence. He leaned in and whispered into her ear, “Miss Corinne, you have my wallet, and you know the pin number of my card. You’re the one treating, but I’m the one paying.”
Hearing this, her eyebrows relaxed, and her mood instantly brightened. She smiled at the others.” No problem. It’s on me tonight!”
The amused Zeke said, “Well then, we’re not going to go easy on you!”
Corinne giggled. “Don’t go easy on me! Just order anything you want to eat. Hopefully, all of can burn a big hole in my pocket!”
Zeke clapped his hands spiritedly. “Do you guys hear that? Just order anything you want, especially the expensive stuff!”
Jeremy narrowed her eyes as he looked at Corinne. This brat turned into a different person. immediately after she knew he was the one paying-so terrible, yet so adorable.
“Miss Corinne, do you think you’re being too much, letting them order anything because I’m the one paying?” Jeremy asked.
Corinne rolled her eyes at him and grumbled, “Hey, you wanted to treat them, not me. If you want. -to treat someone to dinner, you should be generous. If you’re going to be so stingy, it’s better if
you don’t treat them at all.”
Jeremy sneered, “If you’re so generous, why don’t you use your money to pay?”
Corinne said sarcastically, “My money doesn’t come from the tree, and I’d rather spend it on something that means something to me and not treat a bunch of people that I don’t know to dinner. Besides, I’ve slept with you, haven’t I? Do you want me to give you money?”
Immediately after that, her face blushed red. ‘D*mn it! I slipped up!
When she realized what slipped out of her mouth, she looked to the side shyly.
Jeremy was stunned for two seconds, and he ended up laughing. Placing his hand on her head, he rubbed her soft hair. “You’re absolutely right, Miss Corinne. You can keep your money and use it when you like it, and you can use my money any way you want it. Is that good enough?”
Corinne was relieved when Jeremy did not take the chance and teased her. Most importantly, she felt proud after successfully scamming Jeremy. She curled up her lips into a smile and said, “Don’t worry, Mister. I won’t feel shy spending your money!”
Jeremy curled up his lips slightly and looked at her gently.
Not too far away, Rosie felt bitter as she watched Jeremy and Corinne standing closely, whispering to each other.
She had never seen Jeremy leaning down to listen while talking to a woman. It was a side of Jeremy that she had never seen before…and it was not the Jeremy she knew!
At that moment, an idea popped into her mind.
Plastering a pretentious smile on her face, she walked toward the pair. “Hey, Corinne, you’re here. Is this the first time you ride a horse?”
Corinne looked at Rosie. Due to the watch incident previously, Rosie did not leave a good impression in her memory.
“No, I rode a few times before.”
“Oh!” Rosie continued to smile, but deep down, she thought Corinne was lying. She did not believe Corinne, who lived in the countryside previously, had the chance to ride a horse.
“That’s even better. We can race together later!
