Hannah had no choice but to slow down when she eyed Fabian secretly, who was eating gracefully.
Hannah was slightly uncomfortable when Fabian placed a buffalo wing on her plate. She tossed and turned the chicken wing before she cut it and put some in her mouth in the end. She immediately raised her head to look at him. She opened her mouth to speak, but nothing came out.
This was very abnormal of him. Oh my, could he have developed feelings for me?
Hannah ate slowly as she wanted to maintain a lady-like image. Thus, the couple took two hours to finish. However, she would usually finish the entire meal in half an hour if she was with her best friend.
The sun had set when the couple finished their meal. Fabian opened the car door for Hannah as she slipped in before he did and went home.
While they were on their way home, Fabian decided to head to his office when he received a call from his assistant. On the other hand, Hannah went home. Once she was home, she took a shower and went straight to bed as it was a long day for her.
The next day, a ray of sunlight shone through the glass and landed upon Hannah’s face. She groaned and turned over as the sunlight was blinding her eye.
Fabian stopped pulling the curtains as he shook his head and murmured, “What a lazy bump you are.”
He walked towards her bedside and sat down. He stroked her hair and leaned in to plant a kiss on Hannah’s forehead. “Is it really that hard for you to admit that you have feelings for me?”
He sighed as he got up and left the room. Hannah suddenly opened her eyes when the door clicked shut. She was not pretending to be asleep. Instead, she was awakened by the kiss.
“Aren’t you the same? Why can’t you admit that you have feelings for me too? Why should I make the first move? You’re a man. Don’t you think you should do it instead?” Hannah huffed in dissatisfaction.
She glanced at the clock and noticed she still had time. Hence, she lay down quietly on the bed and looked up at the ceiling as her mind went deep into thoughts.
She got up as she knew Fabian had left when she heard the door clicked.
Fabian tapped his finger on the seat of a luxurious car as he looked out of the window, lost in thought. Then, he tapped on the car window and let out a sullen breath. “Let’s head to Hannah’s company and make an appointment with their Chief Editor.”
“Yes, Mr. Norton.”
Moments later, the car arrived at the entrance of Hannah’s company.
“Everything’s been arranged, Mr. Norton,” the driver said as Fabian got off the car.
“Alright.” Fabian nodded. He had decided to strike an agreement with the company to fire Regina. Fabian was aware that Regina would not let Hannah off easily especially after the event yesterday.
A receptionist welcomed him as soon as he stepped into the company. “You must be Mr. Norton! The Chief Editor had sent me to lead you to her office. Hence, please come with me.” the receptionist said politely.
Fabian remained silent as he followed the receptionist.
When he stepped into the office, he noticed a very familiar figure. He thought he was imagining things as he rubbed his eyes in surprise.
It’s her! It must be her! I can never forget that figure of hers.
“Vivian?” Fabian called out as he took a deep breath.
The chair slowly turned around, revealing the mysterious person’s face. Her skin was fair and glossy and she had a pair of long thin eyebrows. Her eyes sparkled as she blinked gently.
“So it was you,” Fabian said in a daze as his eyes were filled with bitterness.
“Hello, Mr. Norton.” she greeted and ignored his words.
“You haven’t changed a bit. You look exactly like before, whether it is your appearance or character,” Fabian recalled as he looked up at the ceiling.
“Shall we discuss the reason why you’re here?” Vivian frowned.
Fabian sighed sadly as the sullen look on his face was instantly wiped away. “Of course. After all, the past’s history now. No one can go back in time.”
