Realizing how rude she was, the server felt upset about his missed opportunity in spitting in her coffee earlier.
Instead of drinking the coffee, Evelyn continued looking around. Yet, there were still no signs of Vivian. Right as Evelyn was in the middle of cursing at the other woman, a commotion broke out beside her.
Twisting her head to the side, Evelyn was shocked by the sight that greeted her. This is Vivian?
The woman in front of her was wearing an emerald dress which complimented well with her fair skin. The dress stopped at her knee, and her legs were slim and smooth.
Yet, her face was where everyone was focusing on. The intricate makeup she had put on matched perfectly with her wavy hair, and no one around her could tear their eyes off her.
What stunned them most was the sense of slight aloofness. It made them feel as if she was an artwork in the museum—they could watch her from afar, but they could not get up close to her.
Noticing the attention she was getting and the slightly-ajar mouth Evelyn had, Vivian felt as if she had traveled back in time to the moment five years ago. However, this time, their roles had reversed.
That was what Vivian wanted to achieve. She wanted Evelyn to know that she was no longer the same person she was five years ago. From now on, Vivian was going to let Evelyn have a taste of her own medicine.
“You’re early,” Vivian commented as she sat down in front of Evelyn.
When Evelyn collected herself, a look of ruthlessness and viciousness returned to her face. Pinching her own hand until she nearly bruised, Evelyn plastered a bright smile on her face.
“That’s right. I have nothing to do, so I came earlier. It wasn’t a boring wait as the scenery here looks picturesque,” Evelyn replied.
“Oh,” came Vivian’s flat reply.
She knew what Evelyn was trying to hint to her—that she was late to their appointment.
However, that mattered not to her; she intentionally came late, wanting Evelyn to wait for her. After all those horrible things Evelyn had done to her, Vivian felt it was nothing to have made Evelyn wait for her for a moment longer.
Realizing that Vivian was not going to apologize to her, the wrath in Evelyn’s heart grew.
Damn you, Vivian! Do you really think you’re a big shot now? How dare you make me wait for you? Who do you think you are? I’m kind to spare you from embarrassment!
Despite the overwhelming anger in her, Evelyn had no choice but to endure it silently for the sake of her plan.
“Vivian, do you know why I’ve invited you to this place?” Evelyn asked in a seemingly sincere tone. The innocent look on her face would have fooled Vivian if she had not suffered from her craftiness; Vivian would not have believed that the pretty face of Evelyn’s was nothing but a guise for her cruelty.
Instead of answering her, Vivian raised her head to look at Evelyn in silence, as if she was waiting for her to continue.
Vivian knew well that Evelyn must have some plan in her mind. Since the other woman seemed like she was not in a rush, Vivian was willing to play the slow game with her.
“To be honest, I want to apologize for what happened five years ago.” With that said, Evelyn’s eyes reddened and began to water. At that, Vivian’s arms were immediately covered in goosebumps.
“Vivian, I was too insensible five years ago. I can’t believe I made you suffer so badly. Let me apologize to you for what happened back then. Could you please forgive me?” As she spoke, Evelyn even grabbed Vivian’s hands with her own trembling hands.
Swallowing her nausea, Vivian voiced, “Didn’t we agree not to talk about the past?”
“That’s because you have a big heart, but I can’t pretend as if nothing had happened. Vivian, you have no idea. Ever since I lost my legs, I’ve come to terms with many things, and I’ve changed a lot. I really think that I had crossed the line with what I’ve done to you back then. I don’t expect you to forgive me for them.”
Evelyn’s miserable act made the server beside them stand transfixed. Is this the same person who was shouting at me earlier?
