Stepping out of the entrance, the smile on my face disappeared instantaneously. I smacked Lucian’s back. “You obviously knew that your mother was trying to match-make you and Yvette, so why didn’t you just leave?”
Lucian replied helplessly, “It’s my mother’s birthday today. She wanted me to have a meal with her and this is the day when I wouldn’t want her to get angry.”
My heart shrank. Who would have thought that in order to help Yvette, Adriana would have resorted to forcing Lucian with such tactics?
“Come home tonight. There will be a birthday celebration for Mom at home.”
Speechless, I walked along the long corridor.
Serena saw me walking out with a man. Bewildered, she stood up.
