Sunny stared at the ear stud, and his anger disappeared immediately. Helplessly, he looked back at Rosie. “Rosie, I think you dropped your ear stud into the boot. You have to be more careful next time.”
Rosie looked at the ear stud on the doctor’s hand and shook her head sheepishly. “No, this isn’t my ear stud. I never wear this kind of ear stud…”
“Are you saying this ear stud isn’t yours?” Suddenly, Sunny became alert. “Did someone put it into your boot? Is someone here trying to hurt you?”
Everyone was surprised when they heard that. They had known each other since they were kids, and their families went way back. None of them would use this method to hurt their friends.
Rosie was stunned when she heard that. After a while, she realized something and looked at Corinne, who was standing in between Jeremy and Annie, in disbelief.
“Corinne, I didn’t do anything to you. Why did you do this to me?” she lamented.
Everyone was dumbstruck by what they heard as they glanced at Corinne in surprise.
Corinne was the only one they just knew, an outsider whom they barely got to know.
At that time, Corinne was yawning out of boredom. Hearing the accusation hurled at her, she looked at Rosie lazily. “Huh? Are you talking to me?”
Rosie felt hurt and angry. Her eyes reddened when Corinne’s attitude was still so ignorant. She said, “You’re the only one who touched my boots when I gave them to you to try out. Who else could it be if it wasn’t you?
“Corinne, I was kind enough to lend the boots to you, so what was I supposed to do that they didn’t fit you? Why do you have to hurt me for it? Do you know I’m a ballet dancer? How am I going to dance again if there’s a repercussion from the wound?”
Corinne looked back calmly and raised her brow. I have nothing to do with the thing you accused me of. It’s just a small ear stud. You’re not made out of paper, and your foot isn’t going to break. just because an ear stud is pierced into it.”
Rosie bit her lip and looked even more upset. Her voice quivered as if she was about to burst into tears. “You wouldn’t know how badly it hurts because it didn’t happen to you!
“Corinne, I know we had a misunderstanding because of the watch, but it’s in the past, isn’t it? Do you have to take revenge on me so cruelly?”
Corinne furrowed her brow like she heard an unfunny joke. “Take revenge? Miss Rosie, are you paranoid?
“When I threw your watch into the soup in the restaurant, I thought the misunderstanding between us was cleared. I’m a lazy person, so I don’t have the time to look back into that boring matter for a second time.”
Rosie was stunned. She did not expect Corinne to be such an honest and straightforward person.
Then again, it was a good thing. The more rude and ignorant Corinne was, the more the others. would think she was a rude, evil, low-quality, and vengeful person. It could help to make the others. lean toward Rosie and know who the victim was in this case.
With that thought in her mind, Rosie took a deep breath, suppressed her discountenance, and put on a smile as if she was generous enough to move forward easily. “Corinne, you don’t have to deny it so quickly; I don’t have any intention of asking you to compensate me. All you need to do is admit that you did it. We can talk it out, that’s all. For Jeremy’s sake, we can still be friends.”
Corinne furrowed her eyebrows as if she was looking at a fly. “Pardon me, Miss Rosie, but we were never friends, and we’ll never be. It’s unnecessary for us to be friends just because of someone. Most importantly, why should I admit something that I didn’t do?”
Of course, Rosie never wanted to be friends with Corinne-she merely said it aloud to make herself look good.
Corinne’s attitude was just what Rosie expected, especially when she looked like a poor victim who initiated a truce yet was rejected mercilessly by Corinne.
With tears in her eyes, she looked at Jeremy, who said nothing from the start, with a helpless, irritated expression.
“Jeremy, did you see her attitude? You, me, Zeke, and the others have been friends for a long time. We all know each other very well. Do you think I’d accuse her without any reason?”
