“Are your chances of winning high?”
Her question was very direct, but Mason found her straightforwardness adorable.
He gently replied, “Ive never lost a case’
Celeste’s eyes lit up instantly
If Liam refused to divorce her later, she could sue for divorce.
With this thought, she looked at Mason with even more eagerness.
Mason felt a bit embarrassed by her gaze, cleared his throat, and spoke, “I forgot to get your phone number earlier. Can you send it to
Celeste’s eyes curved into a smile, “I’ll call you.”
Saying that, she took out her phone and dialed the number Trisha gave her earlier.
Mason’s phone rang quickly, and while he was saving her number, Celeste changed his contact name to “50 Million.”
After dinner, Mason offered to drive Celeste home, but she declined his offer, saying she has other things to do.
After watching Mason leave, Celeste went shopping at a nearby mall.
Around two o’clock, she finally strolled into the office.
She was carrying a lot of stuff, including Liam’s lunch and her spoils from the mall.
As soon as she entered the office, the receptionist rushed over to help her carry her things.
Celeste thanked him and noticed that he was the same guy who had stopped her outside the office before. His expression was tense now, no longer as calm and composed as before..
Celeste found it amusing, and as she stepped out of the elevator, she took a bag of snacks from her bag and handed it to the receptionist. “Thanks for helping me out last time.”
The guy was about to take the snacks when he looked up and saw Liam standing in the hallway with a frown, giving him an icy stare.
The man was so scared that his hands were shaking, so he quickly took it back.
Celeste turned her head.
Liam was standing there like an ice statue.
His eyes were cold, like someone owed him money
Thinking about it, she suddenly realized, was Liam always giving her death stares because he remembered the billion he had to pay her
She immediately smiled, “Mr. Reed, getting impatient, huh?”
Liam snorted coldly. “You finally arrived!”
Celeste explained with a smile, “I could have been here half an hour earlier, but when I went to get the clothes, I saw some nice new stuff, so I bought you two shirts and it took a little longer.”
Liam paused for a moment, and said, “You sure have a lot of excuses.” But his tone was slightly better.
After saying that, he glanced at her, “Aren’t you leaving?”
Celeste couldn’t help cursing him in her heart, then took the stuff from the receptionist’s hand, and stuffed the bag of snacks to him.
The guy didn’t dare to accept it, waving his hand and saying. “This is my job, really, you don’t need to…
“It’s not about work, I just wanted to thank you for helping me take pictures last time.”
The guy was so scared that his face turned pale, and his legs were a little weak.
Ever since that incident, every time Liam passed by the front desk, he felt uneasy. Fortunately, everything went smoothly at work this week, so he gradually let go of his worries.
Unexpectedly, Celeste mentioned it again. Without looking up, he could feel Liam’s icy gaze.
“What’s taking you so long?”
Liam said coldly.
This bastard is picking on her again!
