Lincoln, along with all of Hilda's ex-classmates, were stupefied when they heard Jared and Josephine speaking to each other. At that moment, Lincoln finally discovered the reason why Jared could have free meals at the hotel.
A smile flashed across Jared's face when he asked Josephine, “Are you jealous?”
“As if! Why would I be jealous?” Josephine rolled her eyes and continued, “My dad has been asking for you recently! He wants you to join us for a meal at home!”
“In another few days, perhaps. I've got my hands full recently!” Jared rejected.
The guys at the scene were all staring at Jared with envy. They were dumbfounded by the fact that he had just rejected an offer to dine with the Sullivan family.
A meal with the Sullivan family could potentially turn their life around for the better. They could not understand why Jared would reject such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
