Cordy snorted. “Let’s get down to business.’ “Alright,” Patrick replied cheerfully, and
histone quickly changed. “After we managed to escape by chance the other night,
William’s side of the family must be fuming- especially Jessica. She must be losing it
too, knowing that you are now with John. That’s why you’d better watch out. I’m really
worried she’ll do something drastic.”
“What, wasn’t that night drastic enough?” Cordy scoffed.
“Their whole family was in on it. In this case, Jessica would be doing it on her own
volition, and it’s going to be something insane.”
“Yeah,” Cordy replied, having anticipated that.
After all, John left Jessica alone at the charity ball, went straight to Cordy’s rescue,
and stayed with Cordy ever since.
It was far more than what any woman could take.
“Also, my grandfather is making his move against William following that night,” Patrick
added bluntly. “William had burned his bridges when he tried to hurt us, and I
apologize that you almost lost your life too. I would admit that I’d expected a move
from William, but I couldn’t say no when you asked to come to Rocktown, considering
our partnership. I won’t lie to you either… My family has been waiting for William’s
eagerness to get the better of him.”
“I understand,” Cordy replied.
She did have certain feelings about that, but her rationality trumped her sentiments.
When it came to her partnership with Patrick, she just had to keep things simple
without involving anything else.
Nonetheless, Patrick suddenly said somberly, “Thank you.”
“Huh?” Cordy blurted.
“You did your damndest to save me that night, even if it’s John who actually did it in
“I just couldn’t stand by and do nothing,” Cordy said bluntly.'” Anyone in that situation
would feel the same. Moreover, our fates are bound right now-if something happens to
you, things would get more hairy for me.”
“Even so, I’m the one who benefited from your altruism,” Patrick told her. “And for that,
I owe you one.”
Cordy did not actually need Patrick owing her a favor, but she had no reason to reject
something that worked in her favor.
“By the way… do you trust me more now?” Patrick asked.” And aren’t you going to
open up to John after he rescued you?”
“Are you testing me right now?” Cordy asked in return, raising an eyebrow.
Obviously he was testing her to see if she was still intent on maintaining their alliance,
and whether John was friend or foe now.
In the case of the latter, neither Cordy nor Patrick could tell.
Such was John’s wit-he kept himself positioned ambiguously between both sides so
neither had reason to attack him.
Nonetheless, Patrick said bluntly, “No. In my opinion, you’re most worthy of trust, not
to mention I owe you my life. I may prioritize profits above all else, but I also bear the
virtue of repaying a favor.”
Cordy smiled faintly-the man knew how to flatter himself.
“Yeah, I trust you more,” Cordy admitted.
“Still so rational.” Patrick chuckled. “Any other woman would have fallen heads over
heels for John by now. Don’t you think he’s going to be suicidal if you told him he’s
failed to earn your trust even after putting his life on the line to save you?”
“Are you bragging?” Cordy asked, raising a brow.
“To be honest,” Patrick said succinctly, “I am.”
While Cordy was left speechless, he added, “I don’t think I’ve told you this, but John
and I shared the same alma mater abroad. We were suddenly average Joes since we
were studying away from home, but even when we were supposed to be equals, he
managed to outdo me by a country mile.”
Patrick was most generous with his praise for John, but Cordy was frowning, unaware
that such a connection
existed between Patrick and John.
“At the time, he was a student. Good grades, good looks, good everything. All the girls
“I thought you’re not interested in girls,” Cordy pointed out.
“Doesn’t stop me from getting jealous,” Patrick replied, sounding dead serious.
Cordy giggled in amusement.
“Well, now that you even the score, it does feel cathartic,” Patrick concluded.
Cordy honestly could not say anything to that.
So, men could get petty too.
“Anyway. Would you like me to take you away?” Patrick suddenly asked seriously.
