Celeste went speechless.
“Your family’s business got so big, all thanks to these shady methods, huh? Why don’t you just go rob people?”
Liam said, “Well, that would be a crime, and I’m a law-abiding citizen
Celeste glared at him for a while, unable to find any words to refute him In the end, she used the excuse of going to the restroom to slip
Liam watched her escape, glanced at the indentation on the sofa, paused, and loosened his tie
After leaving the company Liam made a detour to pick up Kaylee.
Kaylee usually didn’t like attending these kinds of events, as she found the people there hypocritical and insincere. On top of that, she was blunt and arrogant, easily offending others. Skyler didn’t really ask her to attend, and Kaylee would rather hang out with a bunch of nch girls, shopping and having afternoon tea,
Kaylee was the only girl in her generation of the Reed family, and the elders doted on her.
But this time, it was Kaylee who actively requested to participate. Liam’s car got stuck in traffic for a while, and she complained on the phone. Liam didn’t indulge her bad habits, cutting her off halfway through.
Celeste was amazed. Liam was the only one who could control Kaylee at home.
When they arrived at the University of S, Kaylee ran towards them from afar. Upon opening the car door and seeing Celeste, her face darkened, and she grumbled.
“I wondered why it took so long, turns out you brought your precious wife.
Liam looked at her expressionlessly. “Stop wasting time, get in the car.”
He didn’t even deny it? Precious wife?
What the hell!
Celeste felt uncomfortable, shifting to the side.
Liam noticed her movement, pursing his lips.
Upon arrival at the design center, the manager greeted them immediately. Soon, the two women were led to try on clothes and get their hair and makeup done. Liam waited outside.
However, not long after, the manager came over awkwardly, telling him. “Mr. Reed, the gown you ordered for Ms. Celeste has caught Ms. Reed’s eye. She insists on wearing it and even hit the staff member assisting her…
Liam’s expression didn’t change much, only asking, “What’s Celeste’s reaction?”
The manager hesitated, stuttering. “She didn’t say anything.”
Liam paused briefly, then stood up, “Let’s go take a look.”
The manager immediately led the way.
“Ms. Reed, while that gown is beautiful, the color and style don’t quite suit your temperament. If you like a more mature style, you can try this one. The front design is similar to a princess dress, but the back is a cutout design, playful and sexy at the same time, more suitable for you.”
The stylist kept suggesting alternatives, but Kaylee wouldn’t listen.
“I said I want that one! Can’t you understand human language? I already kicked out that man, and now you come? You think you have a better chance?”
The stylist’s face stiffened, but she still apologized with a smile, “That gown is a custom order, made to Ms. Celeste’s measurements. There’s only one, and it won’t fit you, Ms. Reed. If you really like it, we can help you order it.”
