Chapter 78: Clearly Her Style
Martina blinked her eyes, her gaze flickering slightly, without having better ways to
remind Elena. Sometimes, her best friend was just too carefree to notice certain details at
Suddenly, Elena seemed to realize something and quickly followed up. “Oh yes! Lately, I’ve been running low on clothes at home! Let’s go.”
After a second, she tried to explain, “You know, with my personality, if I don’t buy dozens or even hundreds of clothes every month, I’ll feel itchy all over!”
Martina burst into laughter once again. Even if Elena didn’t want Leslie to suspect anything, she should at least make her act more convincing, right? Now Elena was saying such things, and it was highly unlikely that the person following them would believe it.
However, the reality was quite the opposite. Despite Leslie appearing seemingly intelligent in other aspects, he was completely clueless when it came to women’s matters.
He didn’t know that Elena was deliberately pretending. In his eyes, it was all just normal
Although he couldn’t fully understand it himself, he glanced at his own clothes and
furrowed his eyebrows slightly.
“So, do girls have such strong shopping desires? I bought my clothes two years ago. and they’re still perfectly fine. Women’s hearts are truly unfathomable, Leslie followed closely behind, muttering to himself. “I just can’t understand it. Isn’t it a waste of money?”
Little did he know that all of this was just a disguise on Elena’s part.
To reassure her boss, he would proactively send him updates every few minutes. The contents of these updates were quite simple, such as which store Martina entered, what she did there, and even the specific conversations she had with the salespeople. Everything
was reported in detail.
In these aspects, Leslie was second to none.
Martina led Elena into the upscale fashion store in front of them, originally intending to just casually browse and leave.
However, as soon as they entered, Elena was genuinely speechless and even forgot to react for quite a while. She was stunned by a beautiful white evening gown adorned with. numerous rhinestones. It looked exceptionally stunning and clearly had a hefty price tag.
This dress appeared to be specifically tailored for Elena. From the fit to various other details, it was remarkably well-suited to her. Instantly, she was smitten with it.
“Ah! Martina, what do you think of this dress? I feel like it’s my perfect match!” she said
Martina surely understood her best friend’s thoughts. It was obvious that she had fallen in love with it. She directly said, “Why don’t you try it on? They have fitting rooms. If it fits well, go ahead and buy it. I’ll pay for it.”
Elena nodded eagerly, “Yeah, I’ll give it a try. I’m sure this dress will be amazing. Once I
put it on, I’ll be the queen!”
Just as Elena was about to request the salesperson to retrieve the dress for her to try. on, another hand unexpectedly reached out and pointed at the same dress. “Get me that dress. I want to try it on,” the person stated, while touching the garment as if it already
belonged to them.
Elena and the other person almost simultaneously said this sentence.
The salesperson suddenly felt awkward standing there, not knowing whom to assist. “Sorry, ladies, we only have one dress left, and it’s in this size. I’m not sure which one of you would like to try it on.”
Elena glanced in the direction of the other person and saw a figure that made her even
The unexpected person was none other than Adam Paloma’s sister, Amy Paloma, who hadn’t been seen in public for a while. Due to her health condition, she rarely made public appearances. Instead, she would stay at home to focus on her recovery.
Due to her delicate health, she was the cherished gem of the Paloma family, receiving abundant love and attention from Adam and her parents.
Amy was equally surprised when she saw Martina and Elena. She probably didn’t expect to encounter acquaintances in this place. It seemed that fate was playing a trick on
Amy’s gaze fell on Martina, as if she had forgotten her original purpose. There was a mixture of curiosity and disgust in her gaze. She inquired, her tone filled with a subtle smirk, “Why are you here? Didn’t you run away from home?”
It’s no wonder Amy’s attitude was so hostile. She had personally heard her brother say that Martina had left and didn’t want to come back. Most likely, she was about to be
abandoned by Benjamin.
When Amy heard this news, she couldn’t contain her joy. She was eager to see Martina being cast aside by Benjamin and herself becoming the apple of his eye.
During this time, she had been doing everything she could to please Elizabeth because she hoped to move back into Benjamin’s home.
Proximity breeds fondness. Amy understood very well why Martina had caught
Benjamin’s attention. It was all because Martina shamelessly lived in his home, which made
him show her some special treatment.
If Amy imitated Martina’s appearance and moved in as well, she believed that it
wouldn’t take long for her to completely replace Martina and become the true Martina of
the Walker family!
Unfortunately, she hadn’t had the chance to implement this plan yet, and now Martina
had appeared again..
