Chapter 27 Birthday Party

  • The next evening, Augustus brought me to the venue of the birthday party. That was my first time attending an event of this nature, so I was naturally nervous. Augustus sensed my emotions and gave my hand a reassuring pat in an attempt to calm my nerves.
  • Before our arrival, I asked him about the party and found out that it was being hosted by the daughter of a property tycoon. I didn't bother remembering her name as Augustus told me it wasn't important who the host was. What mattered was the guests who attended the event.
  • I held onto Augustus' arm as we strolled into the hall bustling with noise and excitement. As I glanced around, I spotted a few female celebrities accompanying older men with pot bellies.
  • Clearly, they were with their sponsors. It was an unspoken rule of the entertainment industry.
  • “Mr. Adler!”
  • A man dressed in an impeccable suit came over to greet Augustus with a glass of champagne in his hand. His gaze, however, was fixed on me. He glanced at Augustus and flashed a knowing smile, saying, “Mr. Adler, you have a gorgeous partner.”
