Chapter 1158Cindy opened the box on the spot. She was so thrilled when she saw the necklace with a cute bunny pendant. She immediately grabbed her phone and took a picture of the necklace and sent it to Stephen. Cindy used to have a necklace with a bunny pendant and she really liked it. But in her graduation year, she accidentally lost it when she was shooting her graduation photos. After the graduation photoshoot, Cindy went alone along the streets where she had been earlier the day and searched carefully, but she didn't get it back. Cindy actually had many necklaces, but inexplicably, she liked that one the most. It was probably because, as someone said, every time Cindy felt upset, she could touch the necklace and remember the joy she had when she received the gift from the stranger that day. It was a mysterious gift she received for her eighteenth birthday, but she lost it. After the graduation ceremony that day, she didn't even feel the slightes
Chapter 1159While Cindy was still in shock, the car suddenly stopped.Harley leaned over and looked at her. "Any other questions?"Cindy was sitting sideways. Harley bent towards her before she could adjust her posture. She saw the man's face close to her.Cindy was stunned. She stared at his eyes. Her head slipped from her hand and hit Harley's face.Harley propped her up. Cindy had just steadied herself when she looked up into his eyes."I ... I didn't mean to do it."Cindy was embarrassed.Cindy blushed, and even her ears turned red.Harley gazed at her. His Adam's apple moved slightly, and his voice was deep. "Does your head hurt?""No, no."Cindy didn't dare to look at him anymore. She could only stared down at her hand to avoid his gaze. All she could think about was the feeling when she touched Harley's face. Her heart thumped uncontrollably.They were close together. Feeling Harley's warm breath on her face, Cindy blushed.She couldn't sit still, but she was in hi
Chapter 1160Cindy felt uneasy and deliberately checked the time on her phone. "It's about nine o'clock."They were running late."No rush."After a pause, Harley continued, "I haven't had breakfast yet."Cindy was a bit surprised, "Huh? But there is a meeting at 9:30."Cindy looked outside and suddenly figured out why Harley had parked the car there.This road was lined with restaurants and food stalls.Cindy, who had worked as Harley's secretary for over a year, tumbled to the situation. "I'll go and buy you breakfast.""I'll go."He beat her to open the car door and get off. "What else would you like to eat?"Before leaving her house, Cindy had already had breakfast.And she planned to go on a diet. At the sight of the steam in the restaurant, she swallowed and said, "I'm full.""Okay."Harley hummed, closed the car door, and headed to the restaurant.Cindy looked at the leaving man and sighed with emotions, "My boss adapts to his new role so fast."Tsk-tsk, she had
Chapter 1161 Harley looked down at her. "Is there anything wrong?""Nothing."Cindy looked down at the pancake she was holding, and the bite where Harley had bitten was exactly where she had just taken a small bite.Didn't that mean they kissed indirectly?Cindy blushed when she thought about it. She suddenly felt that the pancake she was holding was very hot.Seeing that she hadn't said anything for a long time, Harley suddenly asked, "Are you a neat freak?""No! I don't have one!"When she heard his words, Cindy shook her head in a hurry. She was afraid that Harley would misunderstand her. Then, she thought about it and took a bite of the pancake.Cindy couldn't tell what pancake tasted like this time because all she could think about was the image of her and Harley kissing affectionately.Harley kissed her once last night. Because it was the first time she had been in a relationship since she grew up, Cindy was still a little uncomfortable with this kind of gesture."Do
Chapter 1162Harley, who had been remaining silent, suddenly called Kenyon. It seemed that only then did Kenyon realize that his boss was still standing by. Embarrassment instantly overwhelmed him. After all, he was a little excited when seeing the girl he liked. “Mr. Dane, have you had breakfast yet? If not, I can give you mine.”Without looking up, Harley said coldly, “It’s only three minutes before 9:10.”The smile froze on Kenyon’s face. “I’m sorry, Mr. Dane, I won’t be late next time! I’ll go up first!”Although he didn’t want to miss the opportunity to have a few words with Cindy, his job was also important!After saying that, Kenyon hurriedly ran to the elevator.But there were many people waiting to take the elevator now.After the elevator reached the first floor, several people were already standing inside. Kenyon went in and was about to ask Harley and Cindy if they wanted to come in. However, when he looked over, he saw Harley lower his head and help to adjust Cindy’s hair.
Chapter 1163Even if it was twelve years later, Harley still couldn’t forget that day. He had just completed the admission procedures. On the way back, he passed by his former junior high school, where the head teacher of the junior high school saw him and asked him if he wanted to earn some money after school.The head teacher opened a remedial class near the junior high school. As Harley’s grades had always been the first in his grade, he was qualified to be a teacher.The head teacher promised to give him 25 dollars per hour.At that time, Harley was in dire need of money.Although he didn’t have to pay tuition for high school and had won a scholarship, he was still very short of money, so he agreed without hesitation.The head teacher told him the location of the remedial classroom and gave him a spare key. After finalizing everything, they went home respectively.It was already past six o'clock in the evening, and Harley was planning to go home and cook for his grandmother.
Chapter 1164He did part-time jobs and made 3,000 dollars in a semester. The day he fainted, he had planned to go to the hospital to pay the money and let his grandmother have chemo. But he was stopped by the bullies from the vocational high school. He brawled with them like a wolf, but he still lost the 3,000 bucks in the end. On the way back, he felt like his world was all dark. He walked in the snow like one without a soul, but he could feel that someone was watching him. 'Laughing at me, right?' he thought. He had been ridiculed for a long time. When he was young, some laughed at his grandmother for picking up things others threw to sell; when he was older, some mocked him as a parentless wild child; when he got older, some taunted him for being one who would haggle over a penny. He let them laugh, and he was already used to it. This world was like this. When your weak points were shown, others would only laugh at you. When he fell, he thought his falling was good.
Chapter 1165"Mr. Dane?"Cindy had forgotten about what had happened that day, which had been nearly 12 years ago. She was less than 12 then, and she could not recall the details of it.However, it didn't matter at that moment. The elevator door opened, but Harley had not come to his senses.The elevator stopped on the 17th floor, where Harley's office was. Cindy hesitated for a while and addressed him as Mr. Dane.The familiar address made Harley come to his sense. He took a look at Cindy, a flicker of delight in his cold eyes, "Yes."He then stepped out.The news of Harley and Cindy's relationship spread throughout the company all morning.During the lunch break, Cindy went to the washroom, and several women who were discussing their relationship came in."Tut-tut, reserved president and cute secretary. Perfect match!""Secretary James is really lovely. Honestly, if I were a man, I would go after her.""Come on. Secretary James is Mr. Dane's! I knew it on her first day at w
