Although Ian was hungry at that moment, he was not in the mood to eat as he was bothered by the fact that Sophia was pregnant. At the thought of that, Ian lost his appetite, so he only responded with an indifferent grunt after hearing Sophia’s question. “That’s fine by me.”
After instructing the waiter to prepare the food, Sophia continued to stand in place, wondering how she should face Ian. We both used to be close to each other, so why do we feel awkward now that we meet again? What has really gone wrong?
Meanwhile, Ian could tell that Sophia was feeling a little awkward, so he wasn’t comfortable with that as well. I only just left for a short period of time, but I can’t believe so much has changed while I was gone. If I had known this is how the matter would end up, I wouldn’t have left Sophia to join the competition. Nonetheless, there is no turning back now.
Sophia stood in place for a few moments. Then, she came closer to the couch and sat down but kept her distance from Ian. After clearing her throat, she asked, “How was your competition? Has your latest ranking been announced?” Since Ian was a candidate highly recommended by Lorraine, it shouldn’t be hard for him to secure a good place in the rankings.
Ian clicked his tongue and replied, “They only told me to take a break for two days since they need to assess the forum comments and vote counts before making any further announcement about the ranking.”
Despite her confusion, Sophia had a rough picture of what Ian was trying to tell her in her mind. “I wish you the best of luck in your competition! May you secure a job in an established company and prove your worth to the Morgan Family.”
