The moment she turned around, tears in her eyes welled up uncontrollably and gushed out like a spring.
They fell heavily on the ground like pieces of a shattered heart, creating ripples under the colorful lights and wine.
Her desolate figure looked lost.
Andrius‘ heart clenched. However, he knew that he could not be soft–hearted. Now was not the time to be
“Now, she probably won’t come to bother me again, right?”
Andrius pushed Emmy away. His words seemed to be directed at Emmy and also at himself, carrying a hint of bitterness.
Then, he poured a glass of wine and downed it in one go.
Emmy looked at Luna’s back and said confidently, “In my many years of experience, that one minute was
a critical hit. It dealt fatal damage. She won’t recover for at least two or three years.”
Andrius smiled wryly, not sure whether to be happy or sad.
Then, he had a few more drinks by himself.
“Don’t drink alone!”
Emmy poured herself a glass and clinked it with Andrius‘.
Andrius downed another glass. Then, he stood up and prepared to leave.
“Wait!” Emmy pulled Andrius and pouted. “Mister, I did you such a huge favor earlier. Can’t you show some appreciation?”
Andrius was stunned. “How do you want me to show my appreciation?”
“Simple. Just have a few drinks with me.”
Thus, Andrius sat back down at the table.
“Mister, have you never been in a relationship before?” Emmy asked while playing with the wine glass in her hand, but her tone seemed certain.
“No.” Andrius shook his head.
The two chatted while drinking.
After a few rounds of drinking….
“Mister.” Emmy suddenly leaned close to Andrius‘ face, her gem–like eyes sparkling. “Why don’t you be my boyfriend?”
They were so close that Andrius could smell the faint fragrance of her body. The close distance made him a bit uncomfortable, so he subconsciously moved back a little.
Then, he picked up his glass and placed it between them.
“I’m not. Mister, I’m serious. To be honest…” Emmy stared into Andrius‘ eyes and said emotionally, “Ever since that night when you risked your life to jump off the cliff to save me, my heart has been yours. I know that I’ve fallen in love with you.”
Emmy leaned in again, her clear eyes almost right in front of Andrius, reflecting his appearance clearly.
Then, she took her own glass, circled her arm around Andrius‘, and brought it close to her as if they were toasting. She moved as if to drink and said, “Mister, be my boyfriend!”
Andrius was startled by her provocative action and choked. He discreetly pulled his arm back and said seriously, “Ms. Gaines, you shouldn’t fall in love with me. I’m currently caught in a whirlpool of conspiracy, and I’m about to face a critical juncture. Falling for me isn’t a wise choice.”
His expression was serious.
