“She ain’t the person you guys think she is. She’s super simple and straightforward, whatever she thinks shows on her face.”
Nicolas got more and more curious, “What kind of magic does this woman have? Just after seeing her a few times, you’re praising her so much. When you guys arrive later, I gotta check her out, see if she’s really as stunning as you say.”
Mason said, “Don’t scare her off.”
Nicolas clicked his tongue. “You’re still as stingy as before? Not even letting me take a look?”
Mason countered, “When have I ever been stingy with you?”
Before Nicolas could answer, Liam interrupted, “Nude pictures, maybe.”
Nicolas and Mason fell silent at the same time…
Liam said leisurely, “He said when you guys were kids, and you went to the bathroom together, everyone was comparing who could pee farther, but you always covered yourself like a little girl, so he got curious.”
After a moment of silence, Mason said, “Nicolas, are you into guys?”
“Come on! Don’t listen to his nonsense! I like women, okay!” Nicolas complained, but he could only swallow the embarrassment this
He quickly changed the subject, “Kaylee dressed up specially to see you today. If she sees you brought a date later, she might make a
Mentioning Kaylee, Mason felt a headache, “She’s so much younger than me, she’s like a sister to me. I’ll marry the person I like, and she’ll have to accept reality sooner or later.”
“I thought you weren’t coming”
As soon as Liam arrived, Nicolas greeted him with a drink, “Listening to those old men talk, I’m about to be bored to death.”
Liam took the drink, but his eyes were scanning the party scene.
There were celebrities singing on stage, the lights were dim, and people were swaying, but she wasn’t there.
Nicolas asked, “What are you looking for?”
Liam took a sip of the drink, “Where’s Celeste?”
Nicolas was stunned, “I haven’t seen your wife, did she come?”
Liam frowned, “Didn’t she come with Kaylee?”
“I didn’t see her, when I saw Kaylee, she was alone. I thought you didn’t bring her
Liam pursed his lips, put down the drink, and picked up his phone to call Celeste.
After dialing five calls in a row, all of them were unanswered. It seemed as if Celeste had disappeared from the earth.
Liam looked at Kaylee not far away and suddenly walked towards her.
Kaylee was surrounded by a group of socialites, enjoying the attention. The moment she saw Liam, her face tightened.
She tried to maintain a natural smile, already thinking about how to deal with it. Anyway, she would never admit it, no matter what.
“Liam, you finally arrived. Let me introduce you to my friends.”
Kaylee went forward and took Liam’s arm, familiarly speaking. A few giris around Kaylee looked at him expectantly.
But Liam pulled away her hand and said indifferently, “Come here, I have something to ask you.”
Although Kaylee was unwilling, she still followed him, “Bro, what do you want to ask? My friends are still waiting for me to drink.”
“Where’s Celeste?” Liam asked, “She came with you, where is she?*
Kaylee hesitated for a moment, Celeste hadn’t called her brother to complain.
She rolled her eyes and quickly thought of an excuse, “When we got here, she said she wanted to go to the bathroom, so I told the security guard at the entrance and came in first, who knows where she went?”
