Only Jared and Ivan were left in the private room
Jared was sprawled on the table Ivan sat next to Jared, looking relaxed, and casually picked up a copy of World Economy from the bookshelf behind him.
Upon hearing noise at the door, he looked up and said. “Finally, you’re back.”
Agnes asked in surprise. “How did you know I’d come back?”
Judging from Ivan’s demeanor, he was clearly wailing for someone. Could it be her?
Ivan stood up, put the book back on the shelf, and said, “The way you kept looking back when you left, I knew you’d come back. I’ve handed your husband over to you, I need
to go now”
Wait was she just supposed to take it from here?
Had he no intention of helping?
How was she supposed to get a drunk man home all by herself?
But Ivan didn’t seem to have any intention of sticking around. Before leaving, he lightly patted Jared on the shoulder as if to say, ‘Buddy, I’ve done all I can.”
At this moment, Agnes didn’t notice Jared’s slightly open eyes, which seemed to say, “Just go!*
His driver was waiting outside the hotel. When Ivan got into the car, the driver Moss asked in confusion, “Where’s Mr. Whitfield? Why didn’t he come out with you?”
It was Moss who had driven them both here.
Ivan laughed and said, “He might spend the night here.”
As Moss started the car, he asked in confusion, “Is Mr. Whitfield drunk?”
Ivan responded, “No, he can hold his liquor!”
In the private room.
Agnes was at a loss. How was she supposed to get home?
If she and Jared appeared in public together, she would definitely be the headline news tomorrow.
The news about Agnes being the leading lady in the movie was still under wraps.
Any rumors about her and Jared, once news of the lead actress broke, would definitely bring a lot of negative press to the crew.
Out of desperation, Agnes checked into a room downstairs.
It took quite an effort to get Jared into the room. He was really drunk, leaning on Agnes‘ shoulder the whole way, and he was heavy
Fortunately, Agnes had been practicing Taekwondo since she was a kid, so she was pretty strong.
Once in the room, Agnes plopped Jared onto the bed. Exhausted, Agnes felt like she had just lifted a mountain off her shoulders.
She collapsed onto the bed, and lay flat, panting heavily.
After a short rest, just as she was about to get up. Jared rolled over, half his body pressing down on her. His move was smooth, and he pulled Agnes into his arms with one hand resting on her chest
Just as Agnes was about to struggle free. She heard Jared mumble in confusion, “Agnes, I miss you so much.”
Agnes felt like she’d been struck by lightning.
Jared’s tone was whiny, like a child’s. She had never seen this side of him before. It was as if he had become a different person.
Agnes was stunned for a moment, but a smile gradually appeared on her face.
She was filled with anticipation
In the beginning, she was very angry with Jared because he had accepted toasts from many girls that night.
However, his unintentional confession gradually cooled her anger.
Jared was still mumbling. “I don’t feel so good”
Agnes quickly said, “Hold on, I’ll get you some water.”
Just as she was about to get up, Jared grabbed her arm, “I don’t want water.”
Agnes patiently explained, “You’ll feel better after drinking some water
Jared stubbornly insisted, like a moody child, “No, I want to take a bath”
