In the Capital, Jared’s name and face were known to all.
He was every woman’s dream in the Capital. The man every society lady wanted to marry, and the person every celebrity and model wanted to get close to. He was the man standing right in front of them.
His face didn’t only grace the pages of finance magazines, but he was also a hot topic in entertainment news. As a journalism major, how could Jenny possibly not know him?
Jared strolled over nonchalantly, coming to stand by Agnes. His voice was low, but oozing charm, “Who are they?”
Jared’s sudden appearance caught Agnes off guard. With a surge of confusion, she answered, “They’re none of your business.”
A rare tenderness flashed across Jared’s face as he took Agnes‘ hand. “I brought you some gifts from Japan. Go see if you like them.”
Jared seemed to be completely ignoring Elton and Jenny.
Elton immediately sensed something was off, but Jared had already thrown his arm around Agnes, ready to leave the meeting room.
Elton rushed over, grabbing Agnes‘ arm, demanding, “Agnes, what’s your relationship with him?”
Agnes stopped in her tracks, as did Jared. Everyone’s eyes landed on Agnes, including Jenny’s.
Jared was also staring at Agnes, apparently waiting for an answer as well.
Agnes took a deep breath clearly stating, “He’s my boyfriend.”
Upon hearing this, both Jared and Elton frowned. Elton, in disbelief, blurted out, “Agnes, how could you do this to me?”
Seeing Elton’s hurt expression, and Jenny’s disbelief, Agnes admitted that she felt a rush of satisfaction.
Jared’s timely arrival had salvaged a bit of her dignity, preventing her from being played like a fool.
Agnes dismissed Elton, taking Jared’s arm, “Let’s go to The Olive Tree for Mexican food tonight. We haven’t had it in ages!”
Jared tapped her nose affectionately, “Whatever you say, babe.”
Elton’s face paled instantly, and he yelled at Jared’s retreating figure, “Do you know what Agnes and I are to each other? I’m her first love!”
Elton was desperate. Even though he had sex with Jenny, he thought he would still have a chance with Agnes since they’d been close since childhood. But Jared’s appearance made him feel threatened for the first time.
Jared turned around, casually stating, “I’m her first boyfriend.”
With that, he left the meeting room with Agnes.
People from the secretary’s office were all looking towards the meeting room, seeing a man and a woman looking for Agnes this morning; it seemed like a drama was unfolding.
But then, the big boss suddenly showed up, making the outcome unpredictable.
The company’s CEO had always had a poor impression of Agnes, and now they were even more displeased that she was using the company’s meeting room for personal/ matters during work hours. Just as the CEO returned, everyone was discussing the relationships of those people.
Anita was very straightforward, revealing that the handsome guy was Agnes‘ ex–boyfriend.
This was overheard by the passing CEO, who didn’t even pause and headed straight for the meeting room. Everyone felt sorry for Agnes. She was already disliked by him, and everyone suspected she was about to face trouble again.
Just as they predicted, Agnes and the CEO emerged from the meeting room together. Then Agnes, head down, followed him into the CEO’s office.
