Let me go, Mr. Hill Novel [By Shallow South] Chapter 2759
Chester softly exhaled a mouthful of smoke.
He tried to fight his split personality.
“What is everyone staring at? start eating.” Chester lifted his exquisite chin.
“Yeah.” Only then did everyone recover from their senses. “President Jewell, it’s been a long time since we had a meal together. Come. Let’s all toast to President Jewell.”
Subsequently, everyone took turns to drink a toast to Chester.
If that had happened in the past, Chester surely would not care to drink with them.
However, alcohol appeared to be the only thing he could use to numb himself today.
As a doctor, he knew full well that he could not drink alcohol after having gastrointestinal bleeding, but alcohol could prevent him from losing his sanity.
Alcohol could prevent him from thinking about Charity all the time.
On the top floor, the server in the restaurant pushed a trolley of flowers and cake toward charity.
Monte rose to his feet and received the flowers, from where he took out a beautiful diamond necklace and opened it. “charity, this is for you. Can I put it on for you?”
Under the light, the man’s handsome face was filled with affection.
Charity sipped on the red wine and said slowly, “ Sure.”
Monte joyfully walked behind her and put the necklace around her next. Then, he slid his fingers across her ear lobe, “charity, I’m giving you a necklace today, but this time next year, it’ll definitely bearing. Trust me.”
“Will you really propose to me?” Charity lowered her head while playing with the pendant on the necklace.
Monte could not see her expression, but he was certain she was moved, “of course.”
“I hope you’ll do as you promised.” charity finally raised her head and looked at him seriously. “I’ll wait for you forayear.”
Monte’s lips instantly curled up into a smile. He knew that Eliza, that silly girl, only had feelings for him.
“Lizzie…” Monte looked down and was about to kiss her when Charity blocked his lips.
“Someone is here.”
“Yeah. Someone is here.” Monte was elated. “Let’s eat the cake first.”
In fact, Charity was not very interested in desserts.
“Lizzie, this is your favorite hazelnut cake. You used to like it, but why don’t you…” There was a hint of surprise in Monte’s eyes.
“I’ve had too much of it, so I don’t like it as much as I used to.” Charity lifted the wine glass. “Cheers.”
“Cheers.” Monte took a sip of red wine and said with a smile, “Lizzie, something about you feels different from before.”
“Really?” charity smirked as she asked with astonishment.
Monte nodded. “You’re more elegant and beautiful. It’s indescribable.”
“Do you like this me?” Charity stared at him with her dark and quiet but charming eyes.
“I do. I like you even more now.” Monte held her hand and played with it gently before placing it on his lip and kissing the back of her hand. “Lizzie, I love you.”
Charity had the urge to withdraw her hand and slap him.
However, she suppressed the urge to do so.
She felt sad for Eliza.
The man Eliza fell in love with did not even notice that she had changed.
