Vivian’s heart trembled faintly.
She worked in the news industry, so it wasn’t uncommon for her to meet all sorts of big shots and celebrities. Despite that, she had never felt an aura as overbearing as his.
Apart from that, his gaze was frigid, as if he didn’t care about anything that was happening around him.
Jerking herself out of her little walk down memory lane, Vivian looked at Finnick in adoration with a faint smile.
Finnick asked, “Do you like it?”
Vivian nodded and said in awe, “I love it. I haven’t been here in so long. The last time I came here, I was still young and living with the Millers. But I wasn’t that happy.”
She had mentioned how last time when she came to the theme park, Emma only let her tag along as Ashley’s little sidekick and didn’t let her play on the rides. That was why she didn’t have fond childhood memories of theme parks.
Finnick pushed his wheelchair toward the Ferris wheel and said, “Let’s go on the Ferris wheel.”
Go on the Ferris wheel? Vivian was surprised. Was he still the cold-hearted and straightforward Finnick she knew? After all, this was the kind of thing that only young couples would get up to.
Finnick turned back and looked at Vivian, who was still in a daze, and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“I just think this is kind of unlike you,” Vivian couldn’t help saying.
Finnick started to blush and lowered his head. “You can laugh if you want to.”
Vivian suddenly burst into laughter.
Finnick coughed lightly in an attempt to mask his embarrassment.
How humiliating. If it weren’t for the sake of making Vivian happy, he would never have done something so out of habit.
Vivian stepped forward and stared at Finnick. “Have you been overworking yourself these days? Maybe you ate something that went bad? How did someone like you come up with something as romantic as going on a Ferris wheel together? You’re scaring me.”
It could have been the atmosphere of the theme park or Vivian’s words, but Finnick was no longer as standoffish as before, and his face slowly reddened.
Looking at Vivian, he asked quietly, “Don’t all girls like sitting on Ferris wheels? Isn’t it romantic?”
Vivian let out a sigh before she said, “Still, it’s late now, which means no crowd and no cotton candy.”
“Why? Do you want cotton candy?” Finnick’s mood lightened as well when Vivian began to cheer up.
Immediately, he took out his phone.
“What are you doing?”
“Calling someone who sells cotton candy so that they can come here and make us some. I’ll ask them to come over right now.”
Vivian quickly stopped Finnick from making the call, a smile finally blossoming on her face.
Hurriedly, she said, “I was just kidding. I don’t actually want any, so don’t make the call, okay? By now, anyone who sells cotton candy has probably already gotten off work. I can’t bear the thought of them still having to work so late, so it’s okay.”
“Okay, I won’t call anyone then.”
Vivian was always so considerate.
One of the workers, who was in charge of the Ferris wheel, walked over and told Finnick, “Mr. Norton, we’ve prepared everything for you. We can start whenever you’re ready.”
Vivian knew that the Ferris wheel should have been closed by now. Clearly, Finnick had specially asked some workers to help them operate the Ferris wheel since they treated him with such respect.
After the two of them got on the Ferris wheel, Finnick held onto Vivian’s hands. “I know you’ve been in a bad mood for the past few days and you’re mad at me. But can you try to hear me out for now?”
Vivian met Finnick’s gaze, which was much softer than usual and even contained a hint of desperation. It managed to soften her heart.
“Finnick, you don’t have to explain anymore. I still don’t understand why you’re so nice to Ashley, and I know you must have your own reasons. But I just… Well, I felt jealous. After all, you didn’t come back the whole night,” Vivian said truthfully.
“You got jealous?” Finnick’s eyes lit up. Clearly, he had his heart in the wrong place.
Finnick hadn’t imagined that Vivian would get jealous because of himself and Ashley.
Does that mean she’s slowly starting to care more about me?
As he watched the woman in front of him blushing, Finnick could feel the ice on his heart start to thaw. He held her chin gently and kissed her.
