Henry nearly burst into laughter as he found it hilarious seeing Monique on the ground right in front of him.All the salesmen beside them were startled. Some quietly laughed while others immediately extended a helping hand to their 'VIP'. However, most of them were holding too many clothes which were too pricey to just dump on the floor.Henry beamed at those who were laughing quietly from behind with a cold glare, making them tremble. All of a sudden, none of them dared to laugh—some were even on the brink of weeping.Henry's emotionless expression he stared at the salesmen with was completely different from when he was looking at Monique.Henry got down on one of his knees and teased, "I didn't know you worshipped me that much that you’d bow before me?"'Worship my ass!'Monique did not entertain Henry and just turned a blind eye on him. She then raised her teary gaze and embarrassedly said, "Pull me up.""I'm sorry, did you forget the magic word?" Henry raised his eyebrows.
"Why were you in such a hurry to look for me earlier?" Henry carried Monique to the counter.She felt rather embarrassed when she was questioned by Henry, but at the same time, was too tired to struggle as Henry continued carrying her in his arms. "N-Nothing, I'm just feeling thirsty. I want to drink a glass of juice…"Monique would never let Henry know that she was upset at him for looking at that saleswoman with so much excitement.What rights did she have to be upset over it?"Thirsty? I had lots of juice just now so I don't mind giving you some of it." Henry lowered his head and stared at Monique as he spoke with a flirtatious tone.She got his hint as her lips curled. She shook her head vigorously, and said, "No thanks, hehe…"At that moment, Henry—who was carrying Monique—had arrived at the counter. His mellow and attractive voice was heard. "Take out my card from my pocket and make the payment.""What? Let’s just forget about it. There are so many clothes and I'm sure I w
Monique tried to calm her mind. 'Well Monique, it looks like you're out of choice. Since you've made the decision, then just go with the flow and enjoy the life given.'She leaned over to Henry as her soft lips kissed his handsome face. She said softly, "I'll slowly get used to it, but for now, please put me down. It's embarrassing with so many people staring at us."Monique immediately buried her face into Henry's muscular chest after she kissed him. Her face was blushed like a cherry, looking very alluring.Henry was stunned as his chest could feel her warmth. A delightful smile was plastered on his face as he could imagine Monique's shy looks without even needing to take a glimpse of her."Ding." The door of the elevator opened.While Henry was still daydreaming, Monique took advantage of it and jumped out of his arms and ran out of the elevator.His smile got wider when he saw her escaping silhouette as he trailed her.Monique thought they had reached the first floor of the
Monique snapped out of her daze and came back to her senses after having her hands held on by Henry as she stared at the towering silhouette. Perhaps no woman would be able to withstand the temptation from Henry when he was being gentle.'Oh Monique, you need to remain calm!''Henry is just treating you like his mistress—who can be replaced anytime, so don't indulge yourself too deep into it.'Monique managed to calm herself.The waitress pulled out a chair and Monique sank into it and sat in a well-mannered way like a primary school kid."Feel free to order whatever you want to eat." Henry placed the menu in front of Monique.Monique smiled faintly as she took over the menu. Monique glanced through each item on the menu, without the thrilling expression she had earlier. Of course, she did not notice Henry's loving smile on his face.Monique took up the offer and went ahead to place her order since Henry brought her here to spend money. After all, she was here to learn the way t
Henry frowned as he spoke with his low and faint voice, "Stretch out your hand."It sounded as though he was giving an order.Monique stood motionless. 'For god sake, please don't be so kind to me. How am I supposed to keep myself composed if you keep behaving like a gentleman.'Seeing Monique—who was spaced out—refusing to obey his command, Henry felt frustrated as his big palms held onto Monique's slim arm by force.This action ended up hurting Monique's wrist as she shrieked in pain, "Ouch!"On the other hand, Henry's straight silhouette gave off a chilling vibe, and along with his cold stare, it seemed as though the temperature in the atmosphere had dropped significantly, causing others to feel suffocated.However, Monique felt that the pain on her wrist and the coldness Henry emitted seemed much familiar as she felt much better and was not as terrified as before.Suddenly, she gave it a second thought, “Hey Miss Monique, are you a masochist? Why would you feel better after
Back at the entrance of Marriott International.Yvonne was standing at the main entrance of the big building, staring at the sign stating 'Marriott International' under the blazing sunlight. Yvonne was impressed as Marriott International was way more luxurious than what she had imagined."This place is huge." Yvonne was surprised. She had heard rumors of Marriott International but never had the chance to personally be in such a glamorous arena.Her eyes were sparkling. Henry Moore was the head of this high-rise building which was the headquarter of Marriott International, and there were plenty of branch companies throughout the entire world.Yvonne was sure that as long as she managed to get her hands on Henry, she would be able to always be in the spotlight for the rest of her life.She was becoming excited just thinking of having such a life.To enable herself to live such a luxurious life, she would not even hesitate to marry an old man, let alone a stunning looking gentleman.
Yvonne raised her brows with arms crossed. "I'm Monique's sister."That was her first time proudly introducing herself as Monique's sister.The lady at the reception was startled, wondering why the name being mentioned sounded so familiar but she just could not recall who it was. "Who’s this Monique?"Louise, who was busy at a corner, suddenly heard Monique's name being mentioned. She suddenly stood up and came over to the reception and said, surprisingly, "You're Monique's sister?"No wonder she looked familiar.The lady standing in front of Louise had put on makeup. To Louise, Yvonne did look attractive—even her facial features were somewhat similar to Monique. However, upon closer look, it was obviously because the makeup made her look stunning. Yvonne's beauty was not on par with Monique's.Yvonne met someone who knew that Monique had made an appearance at the office, and she was sure that Monique was the chairman's girlfriend so she started boasting. "You're right. I'm here
"Do-Doo… Do-Doo… Sorry, the person you're calling can’t come to the phone right now, please leave a message after the beep." Louise frowned, as no one picked up the call.She dialed again and heard the same thing.It was not a mistake that this lady was Monique's sister. What Louise was doubting and finding it hard to believe was whether Monique really asked Yvonne to come forth to get a job in Marriott International.However, Monique was not answering her call. Louise sighed and gave up as she went ahead and led Yvonne to the personnel department.When Louise came out from the washroom, Yvonne was nowhere to be seen.Yvonne was unsatisfied with being led to the washroom by Louise. Without informing Louise, she left the scene.Yvonne walked to the elevator and met a gentleman in a suit. She asked with a smile, "Can I know the way to the personnel department?"The gentleman saw Yvonne—a pretty, dolled-up face—approaching him with a friendly demeanor and decided to escort her to t
