After chilling for a bit, they headed out for lunch
For lunch here, people could choose to order food and had it delivered to the room by the waiter, or they could choose to go to the restaurant. The restaurant was pretty unique. It was built on the lake with transparent glass floors Walking on it felt like floating on water
If you were lucky, you could even spot some fish swimming beneath.
Agnes and Justin decided to check out the restaurant They heard the food was bomb.
The place was packed with high–rollers from around the globe.
Seeing Agnes‘ cunosity, Justin started explaining to her.
While eating, they shared some gossip “See that lady in the black dress? That’s Countess Alexandra. She came here for vacation recently, it is said that it is because she has a boyfriend here. And that one, the eldest son of the richest man in our city, Cilian. That lady next to him is Chrystal. She’s the hot new thing in the entertainment world, although she is only 17 years old, but rurnor has it she’s already pregnant…”
Agnes suddenly asked, “Is it true you’re having a fling with Kevin, Cilian’s second son?t
Justin gave her a look, “I’m a guy, and I’m into girls. Though, I do attract quite a few admirers, Kevin included”
Agnes was speechless. They continued their gossip, “Like Mamie, the A–list star. Been in the business for years and rumors of a secret boyfriend have always been buzzing. It’s one of the industry’s biggest mysteries.”
Hearing Mamie’s name, Agnes felt her heart squeeze.
Looking up in the direction Justin pointed, sure enough, she saw a beautiful face. Mamie, dressed in red, was hard to miss. Her beauty was beyond words. She was chatting with friends, a hand casually tucked into her hair, the picture of elegance.
Mamie was like a gorgeous red rose, making the other flowers pale in comparison.
Mamie was here too, Agnes was a little dazed
Justin continued, “I heard she came with her secret boyfriend. Word is they might be getting hitched. If we’re lucky, we might unravel the industry’s biggest secret.”
A surprised Agnes asked, “Secret boyfriend?”
Justin replied casually, “A friend in the business told me. Apparently, the media got wind of it and they’re all here, hoping to uncover the secret.”
Agnes was distracted all afternoon, feeling a constant twitch in her eyelids, which made her uncomfortable.
Justin wanted to go horse riding in the afternoon, but Agnes wasn’t in the mood.
So he went alone. When he returned that evening, he found Agnes still daydreaming on the swing chair on the balcony.
He couldn’t help but think, “Has she been like this the whole afternoon?”
Approaching her, he asked, “What’s up. princess?”
He had noticed something was off with Agnes since dinner.
Agnes replied, “Nothing, just thinking about some stuff.”
Deep down, Agnes knew that the secret boyfriend Mamie had been rumored to have for years was actually Jared.
But Justin said Mamie had come on vacation with her boyfriend.
Agnes had some doubts in her heart. Could Jared be here too?
But Jared was supposed to be on a business trip.
Was she overthinking this?
