Chapter 286 I Have Met Him
- I received a phone call from Shay half an hour ago. Shay mentioned that Courtney left the banquet hall and that her phone was engaged. That’s why he’s calling to ask whether she has returned home. Then, he repeated what had happened in the cocktail party to me. “Fortunately Shay and Casey were present to smooth things over. They didn’t let things get overly embarrassing for Courtney.” Oliver wore a complicated expression as he stared at Alexander and probed, “Are you telling me that you believe what they said?”
- Alexander’s gaze darkened. He seemed to be deep in his thoughts and he did not hear what Oliver said.
- “In any case, I do not think it’s true.” Oliver answered his own question. He held his tea cup as he stood up from the couch. Then, he made his way to his room while speaking to Alexander meaningfully. “Sometimes, you may not witness the strange combination of coincidences in person, but you can’t be sure when fate unknowingly binds you with somebody else’s path.”
