Chapter 28 The Wife Behaves Strangely Around Us

  • In that case, it was not too bad to be his fiancée. Wait a minute; what the hell was she thinking? How novel could she compromise just for the coffee? She coughed with embarrassment but still kept her modesty. “Thank you, Mr. Johnston. I will come again when I have time.” She loved coffee, so why not since it was free? “Okay.” He stared at her pretentious look and could not help but smile. This girl seemed to like his coffee beans. “I will go now. See you around.” Nicole waved goodbye. She smirked when she turned around. She would come for coffee often. Max came into the private lounge after Nicole left. Jared immediately instructed Max, “Check Nicole’s background and don’t alarm the Riddle family.” He wanted to figure out the relationship between this girl and Mr. Ellison and how she knew the existence of his estate.
  • Max bowed his head, turned around, and left to find out Nicole’s background. Turning his gaze to the floor-to-ceiling window, Jared looked at Nicole’s slender body from behind and smirked unconsciously. This girl had aroused his interest. Nicole got into the car, looked back at Jared, sitting by the window, and could not help but breathe a sigh of relief. Thankfully, she was smart enough to use Mr. Ellison as a straw man. When she thought about it again, she felt obliged to visit Mr. Ellison, as he was really her benefactor. Back at home, Nicole did not expect to see the twin brothers there, either. Sitting across from them was a tall guy in a school uniform with a refined persona. His school uniform was like that of the high school, but the color of the collar was darker, looking like that of the college. “Stanley, Nicole is back.” Spencer was immediately introduced when his keen eyes spotted Nicole. Stanley looked over at Nicole, his eyes twinkling with surprise. At first, he thought her sister from the countryside would have that rustic look. But Nicole did not have that at all. Instead, she was incredibly beautiful and shared the same facial features as her brothers. “Hello, Stanley,” Nicole said first, her face breaking out in a gentle smile.
  • Stanley looked a little shy and nodded unnaturally. “Hello, Nicole.” Spencer quickly said this to Nicole. “Stanley is a nerd and not good at talking to beautiful girls. His face is blushing again.” “Shut up.” Stanley glanced at Spencer, his pale face even redder than before. Nicole did not expect that the top student whom Spencer and Samuel mentioned had such a shy personality. “Stop messing around. Come over for dinner.” Gloria saw the three brothers pick at each other when she came out of the kitchen with a bowl of tomato soup. But when she saw Nicole, a smile spread across her face. “You are back, Nicole. I have made grilled salmon, your favorite dish. You have got to try it.” Nicole had started to warm up to Gloria over the past few days. She let out a gentle smile and sat down beside Gloria. “Thank you, Mom.” She never mentioned her favorite dishes, but Gloria had been paying attention to her preferences. Knowing that Nicole loved salmon, she had been cooking salmon for the past two days. Samuel quickly sat down, looked at a tableful of delicious food, and smiled happily.
