Reeling in shock, Corinne blinked her bright eyes at Jeremy. ‘He believes me?’
Rosie’s eyebrows furrowed in confusion. “But Jeremy, didn’t you say you believe that I wouldn’t accuse Corinne without a reason? Why are you saying this now?”
Jeremy’s expression remained neutral “Yes, I believe you wouldn’t accuse her without a reason, so why don’t you tell us why you do it anyway and accuse my wife?”
As it turned out, Jeremy was not on her side after all despite saying otherwise. Moreover, he was certain Rosie did it to herself with his question.
Rosie started to panic and played the victim’s card. “Jeremy, we’ve known each other for so many years! You know me. How could you suspect me?”
Jeremy did not react to this, however, as he said, “Time isn’t the standard to test everything. Although I just know my wife, we trust each other, and we won’t suspect each other just because someone tried to instigate our relationship.”
Rosie was stunned. Her eyes reddened as something bitter welled up within her. “Jeremy! What do you mean, instigating your relationship? You surely can’t think of me in that way. We’ve been friends for ages now.
Jeremy started to look impatient. “Rosie, if you’re not going to say the reason, stop accusing my wife Otherwise, I don’t mind seeing you in court.”
He turned his back to Rosie calmly and asked Corinne softly, “Are you hungry?”
The question struck Corinne as she had been zoning out. She nodded. “Yeah, a little.”
“Then let’s go. We’re going to have our breakfast.”
With everyone watching them, Jeremy held her hand naturally and led her out of the changing.
Annie followed after them with a smile and whined, “Boy, was I mad at you back there, Uncle Jeremy! Why didn’t you state your intention? I thought you didn’t trust Corinne!”
Jeremy gave her a cold glance, “So I’m not your bad Uncle Jeremy anymore?”
Annie chuckled. “No, no. I was just being silly! You two have a strong relationship. You won’t doubt. each other just because of a silly matter!”
Corinne was speechless as she stretched her lips. ‘What the heck? A strong relationship?”
After Jeremy and Corinne left, Zeke and the others were ready to leave too. They were just watching by the sideline and did not have the intention to take anyone’s side.
However, Rosie burned with anger as she watched Jeremy and Corinne leave while holding hands.
Jeremy actually warned that he would sue her because of the country bumpkin Corinne!
If Jeremy suspected her already, there was no way she would let Corinne leave so easily!
She gritted her teeth reluctantly and thought deeply. Suddenly, she shouted, “Jeremy, wait!”
Jeremy stopped walking and looked back a little. “What else do you want to say?”
With a sullen expression, Rosie said angrily, “If you bring her out now, everyone will think I accused her of hurting me! It puts me in a difficult situation, and I’m unwilling to have others think of me like this!”
“Then what do you want to do?” Jeremy asked.
“If you believe in her and she insists she didn’t do it, let her prove to me that this ear stud isn’t hers!
