Chapter 96 My Pleasure
- In the days that followed, Jocelyn poured her heart into her studies. She enthusiastically drowned herself in an ocean of books, and she munched on snacks whenever she had the time to do so in order to keep herself alert. She was trying her best not to allow her mind to wander off. However, the memory of Sebastian’s deep, loving gaze and the final kiss he had planted on her forehead managed to work its way into Jocelyn’s mind now and then; she simply couldn’t erase it even if she wanted to.
- Soon enough, Jocelyn’s birthday arrived. Early that morning, Marilyn mysteriously pulled Jocelyn over to the wardrobe. Jocelyn was stunned the moment she opened her eyes. What? Did I accidentally trespass some high-end fashion showroom? Laced skirts, ruffled edges, sequins, mermaid dresses, half skirts, and chiffon skirts… Each of these looks pricier than the last! All of the dresses were made of high-quality material, and Jocelyn couldn’t suppress a gasp when she ran her fingers across the fabric. This probably cost a great deal of money!
- Jocelyn had never been too thrifty with clothes since she was born into a family like the McBrides. Nevertheless, the wardrobe was filled with high-end, tailor-made clothes that looked extremely expensive, and she had never experienced luxury to such an extent in her life. A sparkling tear formed in her eyes.
