Chapter 2742 He Does Not Trust Me Still
Looking at Joan, Jessica couldn’t help but sigh. They used to be doing alright. So, how did they end up like this?
“Ms. Young, let me help you!” Just as she spoke, Joan ran toward Delilah.
“Are you done with your gossiping?” Delilah teased her on purpose.
“We’re not gossiping…”
Inside the office, Caspian was reading a magazine restlessly while Larry furiously typed away on the keyboard.
“Larry, it’s time to get off work,” Caspian murmured, worried that he would disturb Larry.
“Mmm-hmm. You should head back first,” Larry answered right away without even looking up.
“Aren’t you going to pick Joan up?” Caspian asked warily.
“Where is she now?” Larry asked casually as he looked up at Caspian.
“At the flower shop! She just opened one.” Caspian laughed heartily. After all, he was really happy for her.
“Since when did she start running a flower shop? Why didn’t you tell me earlier?” Just as he spoke, Larry grabbed his jacket and ran out.
“Give me the address!”
“Alright!” As he watched Larry leave, Caspian was greatly relieved.
Soon, Larry arrived at the flower shop in his car.
She really did start one. Looking at how beautifully decorated it was, Larry was filled with anticipation.
The doorbell rang.
“Welcome!” Joan greeted warmly as she walked out. When she saw who it was, she was suddenly stunned.
“Joan, what are you doing? Come and help, quickly!” Delilah yelled from the back.
“What are you doing here?” Joan snapped.
“I heard you opened a flower shop, so I’m here to take a look.” Larry walked right in.
What’s there to see? It isn’t your shop anyway. At that moment, Joan didn’t forgive Larry while Larry was waiting for her explanation.
“How’s business?” he asked casually as he took a seat.
“We just started today,” she reminded him.
“Aren’t you on a business trip? Why are you back so quickly?” There wasn’t a shred of emotion on her face.
Does she think that there’s no need for her to explain what happened? Larry blinked as he stared at her.
“What are you looking at me like that for? Do I have flowers growing out of my face?” Joan sniped.
Larry shook his head in silence.
“Hey, Larry, you’re back,” Delilah exclaimed as she walked out.
“Ms. Young.” Larry got to his feet at once to greet her.
“Lucius was just complaining that he missed you yesterday.” Delilah beamed. Nevertheless, she quickly walked out of the shop once she felt the tension in the air.
On the sofa, Larry and Joan exchanged glances in awkward silence.
“Is there anything else? I’m busy.” Just as she spoke, Joan got up to leave.
“Joan!” Suddenly, Larry extended his right hand to restrain her on the sofa. His eyes were deep, like a bottomless abyss.
“Tell me what happened, alright?” Larry gently suggested. He wanted to clear the air calmly.
“Fine. What do you want to talk about? Is it about me hurting Della?” Joan looked up at him defiantly.
After a long pause, Larry finally got around asking, “Why did you do that to her?”
He doesn’t trust me still!
Outraged, Joan banged her hand on the table.
“Larry, I will never do such a despicable thing. Even if you ended up marrying Della, so what? I’ll still carry on living as usual.”
