Agnes had dozed off all afternoon, and so had Jared.
Agnes was staring at the ceiling blankly. To others, Jared was seen as aloof and noble. There were even rumors that he wasn’t into women, and was a
man of few desires!
Well, that didn’t seem to be the case!
Agnes was starting to feel better. But maybe she was overthinking.
Jared chose a private French restaurant, a place often frequented by celebrities.
Agnes was actually quite nervous. Firstly, this was the first time Jared was introducing her to his friends. Secondly, Marie was no ordinary person. She was a well–known actress with a strong aura.
Agnes was inwardly happy. It felt like she was getting one step closer to Jared’s life. They were secretly married, and Agnes was always afraid of others finding out. She wasn’t sure how the marriage would end; she never really gave it much thought.
But now, her thoughts seemed to be gradually changing.
When Agnes and Jared arrived at the restaurant, Mamie hadn’t arrived yet. After waiting for a while, he received a call. It was from Mamie’s agent.
Agnes vaguely heard the words “car accident” and “rear–end collision“.
After hanging up the phone, Jared’s expression turned serious. He told Agnes, “Mamie had a car accident on the way here. She’s in the hospital now, I’m going to check on her.”
Agnes immediately said, “I’ll go with you”
Jared replied, “It’s not that serious. You should stay here. Have something to eat, I’ll be back soon to pick you up, and it won’t take long.”
Agnes thought about it. If she appeared with Jared in a public place like the hospital, it could draw a lot of attention. So, she nodded and said, “Okay, I’ll wait for you here.”
After Jared left, Agnes was sitting all alone. All sorts of dishes were served; it was a table full of delicious food. She just sat alone. Even the waiter gazed at her strangely. Agnes didn’t touch her fork and packed a few main dishes to take away. In the end, she couldn’t help but worry and took a taxi to the hospital.
She had good ears. When Jared was on the phone earlier, she heard the hospital’s name and the ward’s room number. She arrived at the hospital quickly and went to the ward.
It was a VIP ward, very quiet with few people. The whole floor didn’t have any other people.
Agnes arrived at the door of the ward, very hesitant. Just as she was about to knock on the door, it opened, and a nurse came out. She glanced at the takeout box in her hand and said, “You must be Ms. Mamie’s assistant. Go in, remember, don’t give her greasy food for now.”
With that, the nurse left.
The door to the room was still open. The room was huge, like a presidential suite..
Agnes slowly walked in. From the bedroom came Jared’s voice, “Mamie, don’t use this tactic. I think I made some things very clear that day.”
Mamie’s voice also came from inside, “How am I supposed to believe what you said. You married a twenty–year–old girl? Jared, are you trying to get back
“I’m not trying to get back at you, I really am married.”
“Jared, going to Hollywood has been my dream since I was a kid. I said I could win an Oscar for Best Actress in two years.”
“That’s your decision, it has nothing to do with me.”
“What about your decision? Your ego was hurt just because I didn’t accept your proposal, and you went and married a young girl? If this isn’t revenge,
then what is it?”
