ith sounded like a totally different person. There was no trace of haughtiness in his tone, but iis had nothing to do with her anymore.
is there anything I can help you with? If not, I’ll need to get back to my work,” Aurelia iswered perfunctorily.
Aurelia, I missed you so much. Has it not been long enough that you’ve thrown your intrum? But you don’t have to worry about it. I don’t care about that. You are still the onsiderate and obedient girlfriend in my heart. Let’s have a meal together when you’re free.” eth said smilingly.
is tone was too casual. It was as if he implied that having a meal with him would be a gift om heaven to Aurelia.
urelia used to think that it wasn’t wrong for men to be a little arrogant. But, now she felt inoyed even just by hearing Seth’s voice.
‘hy did he suddenly act like this? What did he want?
‘hile Aurelia was wondering about Seth’s behavior, Linda’s message popped out on her ɔmputer screen.
Aurelia, I have good news for you. Your ex–boyfriend has gotten kicked out of the Golf ating Club. I heard that he was caught to have falsely reported his income and gave out a fake atch as a gift. The female member was so angry that she exposed him on the spot. nmediately after, the club kicked him out to show their stance.”
The point here is, it was written on the membership agreement that if members were found › have false information, they will not refund their membership fees. He had wasted his 30 jousand dollars. I almost laughed my head off!”
Well deserved,” Aurelia replied.
o wonder Seth would come back to ask her to get back together. It was because his dream of nding a rich girlfriend had been broken.
urelia thought that he deserved it. Did Seth think that she was a garbage recycling station? ne didn’t care about him anymore.
Aurelia. Aurelia? Are you still listening?” Seth’s eager voice sounded through the phone.
urelia sent Linda a “talk to you later” GIF before picking up the phone. “Seth, I’m not rowing a tantrum. I’ve told you clearly that we’ve broken up! So please don’t call me again. I block every number that you use to call me.”
th had become uneasy on the other end. He hurriedly stopped Aurelia from hanging up the lone. “Aurelia, I know you said this because you’re still angry. You love me. Who will accept u wholeheartedly besides me? Let’s meet and talk this through, okay?”
seth, a good ex–boyfriend should be just like a dead man. I can live very well without you,” Irelia emphasized.
th was stunned. He thought Aurelia would be thankful if he gave her a leeway. He didn’t pect her to be so stubborn and made him embarrassed.
He raised his voice in anger. “Aurelia! When did you start becoming so thoughtless? How can you live well without me? You want me to go and look for you, right? Sure! I’ll find you now!
“Seth’s narcissism left Aurelia speechless. It made her toes curl thinking that Seth wast coming to her company to act like a sweet male lead from a TV drama.
She could only declare, “Seth, I’m married. You can come over anytime if you’re not afraid of being embarrassed.”
Seth gasped and exclaimed impatiently, “That’s enough, Aurelia! I’ve begged you humbly, so what else do you want me to do? How can you make things up to piss me off? Is it because of the 100 thousand dollars? When have you become so materialistic and unscrupulous? I’m telling you…”
Aurelia frowned. She didn’t want to waste her time with him, so she interrupted, “Someone is looking for me. I have to go.”
She quickly hung up the phone and blocked the number.
She knew Seth would never confront her in public, because he would feel very embarrassed about it.
Aurelia didn’t care much more about Seth. She concentrated on doing the proposals instead. After all, getting a promotion and a pay raise was more important than thinking about men.
On the other hand, Seth was trying to call Aurelia again. But his calls couldn’t be connected.
He pursed his lips in disbelief. Then, he looked at his mother on the couch, Rosa Martinez, with a complaining look
“Mom, it’s all your fault! Everything would’ve been fine you had just lent Aurelia 1001
w if thousand dollars at that time. If Aurelia’s colleague hadn’t told me that she already had another man, I would still be waiting stupidly!
“Now, she even told me that she’s married! It looks like she is determined to break up
up with me! It’s not easy for me to get her to become my girlfriend. I could get a Seacester’s household registration if I married her. Do you how hard it is to settle down in Seacester?”
“One of my colleagues married a nonlocal. Both of them worked really hard. But, they were only qualified to get a household registration when their child was almost in elementary school! Do you want me to be called an ‘outsider‘ here all the time?”
