The next second, disregarding the pain in her foot, she stepped directly onto the ground and reached out to cover the shoe’s surface.
Because of the exertion, the previously well–treated wound began to ooze blood again.
She straightened up, intending to find a cotton swab to wipe it, but she noticed Leslie’s cold expression as he stared at her shoes.
“Are those shoes so important to you?” He said expressionlessly.
“Well, it’s because…”
Aurelia smiled at the thought of her parents.
But in Leslie’s eyes, it felt particularly glaring.
Was she really that attached to her ex–boyfriend?
He interrupted, “You don’t need to tell me. Let’s take care of your wound first. It’s getting dark.”
He wasn’t interested in hearing about her love story with her ex–boyfriend.
She glanced at the sky and nodded. “Yeal.”
Leslie quickly bandaged her wound. When she got up to express her thanks, she found that he had already turned around and walked away silently.
She hurried to catch up.
“Mr. Synder, it’s a little late today. Can we just have a simple meal tonight?”
“No, let’s just buy something and eat it at home,” Leslie said solemnly.
Aurelia didn’t insist.
She didn’t know if she had stomped on the ground too hard earlier, but her heel and the wound on her ankle hurt.
She was planning to work on refining the plan for One Technology that night, so she also felt reluctant to cook.
Leslie didn’t seem like someone who could cook, so buying something was the best option.
On the way back home, Leslie was silent as he carried their takeaway from the restaurant.
When she arrived at the apartment, Aurelia took off her high heels and found that they were stained with dust. She quickly took out a cleaning cloth and wiped them clean.
When she stood up again, she saw that Leslie had been watching her emotionlessly. “I’m not hungry yet. You should go ahead and eat first. I’ll be in the study,” he said.
“But it won’t taste good when it’s cold.”
Leslie remained silent and just placed the food on the table before heading to the study.
What was going on? Why was he always so unpredictable?
Aurelia felt a little confused, but she didn’t dwell on it.
After all, this was Leslie’s home. He could do as he pleased, and she had no right to interfere..
She went to the kitchen to grab some plates and cutleries, only to find something new in the
Was that an electric fan?
Did Leslie buy it?
Aurelia’s mind was filled with questions, and she suddenly remembered something. She had. casually mentioned in the morning that the kitchen got too hot while she was cooking.
So, did Leslie buy a fan because of that?
Aurelia stood there in astonishment but quickly regained her composure.
She wasn’t the only one who used the kitchen. Maybe Leslie had bought it because it got too hot while he was washing the dishes.
She wasn’t self–centered enough to think that Leslie had bought the fan especially for her. However, she still smiled with satisfaction at the thought of being able to use the fan in the future.
Walking back to the dining table, Aurelia first divided the food and plated them.
Leslie was a very particular person and probably wouldn’t want to eat leftovers.
After preparing the food, Aurelia finally sat down to eat, multitasking between eating and working on the proposal. She didn’t want to waste any more time.
Zachary’s partiality toward Kimberly made her realize that she had to work even harder to win this competition.
After finishing her meal, she got up and went to the kitchen to wash the dishes.
Leslie had bought the meal that day, so it was only right for her to do the dishes.
She couldn’t just take advantage of the situation and do nothing.
Returning to the dining table, she wiped her hands and continued working.
As time passed, Aurelia yawned a few times. She was so tired that her eyes started to hurt as she stared at the computer screen.
Rubbing her eyes, she rested her head on the table, planning to take a ten–minute alleviate the fatigue.
However, she ended up falling asleep unintentionally.
