Chapter 791 All Men Are the Same
One was a handsome and popular man in Tissote who had constant scandals, and the other was a controversial actress who made a recent comeback. Now that the two were spotted together, rumors would spread like wildfire. As soon as they appeared, almost half of the crowd in the venue gathered to become involved with them.
Adelpha was blocked at the outermost part. Seeing that she couldn’t squeeze in, she simply gave up and started thinking about other methods.
She looked at Brendan’s location, made an estimate, and then rushed to the swimming pool that Alexander had to pass through. Swiftly tidying her clothes, she pretended to be indifferent to the crowd.
After a while, Alexander finished socializing, and sure enough, he came toward this side.
Instantly, he recognized her—Elise’s current sister, Adelpha. Oh! Isn’t it the drama queen? How could she appear here? Could it be that Ellie is also here?
But he didn’t show it on the surface; his eyes calmly looked straight ahead of him, holding Riverlyn as he walked forward calmly.
Adelpha saw the opportunity, and when Alexander got close, she slipped on purpose and threw herself into the swimming pool, shouting at the same time, “Ah! Help!”
Alexander rolled his eyes secretly.
Is she giving me a chance to save her? Is she Ellie? Does she have any value?
He really couldn’t find any reason to save her, so he calmly watched her fall into the water without a trace of worry in his eyes.
Adelpha never thought that Alexander would be so ungentlemanly. She even waited for two seconds and had to jump into the swimming pool when she saw that he didn’t respond.
After choking a few mouthfuls of water from the pool, she saw no one had come to save her. She was so humiliated that she couldn’t lift her head and hurriedly swam to the ladder by the side.
However, as soon as she grabbed the handrail of the ladder, things took a turn for the better.
A large hand suddenly descended from above and stretched out in front of her.
Adelpha wiped off the water on her face, raised her head, and met Alexander’s dark eyes.
Alexander raised the corners of his mouth, and his voice was very soft as he said, “Are you coming up?”
Although there was no smile on his face, Adelpha felt butterflies in her stomach. She shyly took his hand and climbed up from the swimming pool.
Alexander brought the bath towel from the usher, turned, and handed it to Adelpha. “Wrap it around yourself; don’t catch a cold.”
“Thank you, Mr. Griffith.” Adelpha shyly bit her lower lip, took the bath towel, and wrapped herself tightly while smiling.
She knew that opportunities were reserved for those who were prepared. Alexander only just reacted a little slower; he wouldn’t be so indifferent as to watch a beautiful girl fall into the water without helping her.
“I recognize you.” The man of her dreams addressed her, after which her smile froze. She was about to explain what happened last time when Alexander directly pardoned her.
“You’re a victim of the deception by the fake Piano Association,” Alexander said.
Adelpha had suddenly turned from a swindler to a victim, and she didn’t even react in time. She was stunned for a while before quickly adjusting herself. Then, she pretended to be pitiful and said, “Yeah, those people were really bad. It was you who helped me out both times. I really don’t know how to thank you, but my name is Adelpha White. If you need help in the future, just tell me.”
Of course, she knew that she could do nothing to help Alexander. She said it just so that Alexander would remember her name.
“Adelpha. That’s a very good name,” Alexander praised against his wishes.
“It’s almost fall, and the cold is biting. I’ll take you to the lounge to change into clean clothes.”
“Sorry to trouble you, Mr. Griffith.” Adelpha wished for nothing more.
So, Alexander left Riverlyn behind and took Adelpha to the lounge.
In the distance, Jamie couldn’t help feeling strange when he saw this scene. “What has happened to Boss recently?”
“What’s wrong with him? He’s in the heat, I guess! All men are the same!” Narissa was angry.
“Hey, hey, if you wanna criticize him, just criticize him. Don’t get me involved! I’m an innocent and pure boy from a good family!” Jamie looked helpless.
Narissa rolled her eyes at him and didn’t answer but stared at Adelpha’s figure, her expression becoming more and more ugly.
Isn’t that woman my idol’s younger sister who hired someone to make trouble at my idol’s autograph session and then spoke ill of my idol behind her back? How can this kind of woman be worthy of coveting my best friend’s man? I’m not gonna allow her to get what she wants!
Thinking of this, Narissa walked in the direction they left.
“Hey! What are you doing?”
Jamie called after her, but she didn’t respond, so he could only follow.
After Yuri had socialized for a while, her lipstick faded, so she went to the bathroom alone, ready to put on makeup before going out.
After rounding a corner, Brendan rushed out, grabbed her, and pulled her to the side, then pushed her whole body against the wall and suddenly kissed her.
Yuri’s thoughts halted for two seconds before she reacted immediately to resist, trying to push him away.
But Brendan’s kiss was strong and domineering, and she was easily led by him. The desire buried deep in her heart was instantly ignited. Gradually, her resistance ceased, and her awareness gradually became hazy.
It wasn’t until her breathing became a little heavy that Yuri regained her senses. With all her strength, she pushed Brendan, who had relaxed his caution, away. Then, she raised her hand and slapped him across the face.
Brendan was hit, and he curled his lips coldly before turning back, looking at her with a complicated expression. “Why? You want to keep yourself pure for Christopher? When did you become so clean and pure?”
“Have you said enough?” Yuri looked despairing. “It doesn’t matter to you what I’ve become. As long as I don’t want to, no one has the right to touch me.”
“So, you want to tell me that this was originally my right, and you gave it to another man, right?” Brendan’s eyes were red and bloodshot, and his fists were clenched tightly as he spoke while he trembled all over.
He couldn’t bear her choosing someone else, and he couldn’t watch that man do things to her while having to be indifferent about it. He was fed up with pretending that he didn’t care and fed up with having to suffer the feeling of not having her when she was just there beside him.
He personally sent her the invitation letter, and he was even ready to forget everything in the past and beg her to get back together today.
Yet she accepted another man and showed that man her affection in front of him.
“I have never belonged to anyone. It’s been so many years. You still see things so one-sided, and you’re always so self-righteous.” Yuri’s beautiful eyes were hazy, and her bangs were messy on her forehead. At this moment, she felt broken all over.
“Yes, I’m self-righteous, but I’m too self-righteous to think you really love me. I was over-confident enough to believe everything you said. In the end, it’s been four years since you left. What do you think of me in your heart? Am I your first love and boyfriend, or just a toy that can be thrown away casually?”
Brendan lost the calmness and composure he had.
When he brought up the past, his mind replayed the scene of him running in the rain. His heart was shattered into pieces beyond one could even imagine. If one looked at him again, one couldn’t help but feel distressed.
