Evelyn made Melanie drive to a shopping mall.
She said, “There’s a restaurant there that I’ve always wanted to try, but no one would accompany me. How about going there with me, Eugene?”
Eugene looked at his phone. He replied, “It’s up to you.”
“Miss Smith.” Evelyn was in a good mood after hearing Eugene’s reply. She turned to Melanie and gave her a big smile. “Can you wait outside for us until we’re done with lunch? That restaurant is a dining place for couples. It’s not appropriate for you to eat there with us.”
Eugene’s fingers paused while fiddling with his phone. Frowning, he looked at Evelyn. “It’s a restaurant for couples?”
“Why? Can’t you eat there?” Evelyn asked.
Eugene turned off his phone and glanced at Melanie. Nodding, he said, “Sure I can.‘
Melanie could sense the cold glance in Eugene’s eyes. She pressed her lips. Eugene must be warning her not to tell Viola about this.
However, she was not close to Viola at all.
There was no way Melanie would share such stories with her.
Eugene and Evelyn entered the restaurant while Melanie found a random place to have lunch.
Melanie did not have enough rest the night before and had suffered from Eugene’s wrath today. She was feeling quite exhausted.
She ordered something random and took a few bites of her lunch. All she wanted was to find somewhere to have some rest.
After a short moment of peace, a message suddenly popped up on her phone.
Xander, who had vanished last night, had sent her the message. He informed her that Stephen had reached out to him and he wanted to know if Melanie would like to meet him since he was
Melanie thought about this. She felt that Eugene and Evelyn would probably be spending more time together, so she agreed to meet Xander.
Xander happened to be nearby, and he told Melanie to wait for him at the restaurant.
Melanie agreed and sent a thank you message to Stephen.
Stephen replied very quickly. He left her a voice message. “Xander is very talented in this field. It’s not a bad thing for you to engage him and get to know more about this industry.”
He had a warm voice, and it was clear that he was thinking on her behalf. Melanie was about to thank him again when she heard him say, “If you really want to thank me, buy me a meal when you return.”
Melanie put her phone away after replying to Stephen’s voice message. That was when she saw a young man walk into the restaurant.
The man was very tall, and he was wearing a white shirt and pants. His legs were long and slender, and he looked just like a model.
He attracted lots of attention the moment he entered. Melanie quickly looked away after glancing at him. After all, it was rude to stare at someone.
The man looked around the restaurant, and surprisingly, he went straight toward Melanie before stopping right in front of her.
“Xander Soloman.” The man’s voice was magnetic. He reached out to knock the table in front of Melanie as he looked down at her. His expression was calm as he asked, “Melanie Smith?”
Melanie was taken aback.
She could not look at his face clearly when Xander was standing at a distance just now. She only sensed that there was something different about this man and he was very good–looking.
Now that he was right in front of her, she noticed that Xander had a pair of very pretty almond -shaped eyes. He had a red mole right below the end of his right eye.
It made him look distant.
Melanie breathed in sharply as she looked at Xander. Her intuition told her that this man was not someone to be trifled with.
