Khloe gnashed her teeth. She had lost her appetite.
She had always thought that Lord Ethan was just taking advantage of Kylie. It was unexpected that he so doted on her.
She thought about it over and over again. "Is Lord Ethan really married to Kylie?" She asked Aiden tentatively.
Aiden frowned. He was obviously reluctant to answer her question.
But he couldn't get over her whining, so he sighed, and said: "Uncle said they did, but…"
"What specialties do you have here? Please serve them all," Kylie told the manager, without even looking at the menu.
The manager subconsciously looked at the man sitting opposite her and saw him nod slightly, so he nodded as well.
Kylie saw his petty action and laughed. "What do you think of him? It's not his treat tonight."
The manager was surprised. The man had made the reservation; how could it not be his treat?
Even the man who always wore a cold face now wore a puzzled expression.
Kylie held her arms and smiled. "You didn't hear what the celebrity just said? It's her treat tonight."
The manager understood her words, then nodded. "Yeah, yeah. That's right."
When the manager left, Kylie took up the pot, and poured herself a cup of lap-sang, then poured a cup for Ethan.
"You are lucky today. You owe me a great meal."
Ethan said with a smile: "Thanks."
Kylie drank the lap-sang in one gulp. "You said you had something to do...so you came here to make a reservation?"
The man was holding a towel to clean his hands and said without looking at her: "What else?"
He had long fingers; his hands were beautifully shaped.
It must be every woman's dream to be able to hold such hands their whole lives.
But in Kylie's eyes, the hands were like a cage. Once it was locked, she was in another abyss.
She had loved Aiden for five years. She had given him all her patience and love, dreaming of being with him her life.
But what she had finally received was just a protective shield. Now that she was with Lord Ethan, she was nothing but a shield that had moved on to another place.
Anyway, this time, she had to protect herself, and this time she had to take care of her heart. She would never make the same mistake again.
Seeing that she was staring at his hands in a daze, the man reached across the table and lightly took her cold hand in his.
Kylie's physique was always rather cold, even on such a hot day.
His big palm, at his warm temperature, wrapped around her small soft hand.
But just as he covered it, Kylie pulled her hand away.
She tried to avoid his eyes, with an official smile on her face. "Nobody is here. No need to pretend to be a couple."
Ethan's eyes became gloomy, and he did not say anything. But the chill emanating from him told Kylie that he was unpleasant at the moment.
The waiter came in with the dishes, wondering why the temperature in the room was so low.
She checked the air-conditioner; it worked well.
But soon, the atmosphere in the room was warm again, because there was a food hunter in the room.
"You really do not eat?" Kylie asked again, with a piece of shrimp in her hand.
The man shook his hand calmly and tasted his lap-sang.
By the time she finished the plate of seasoned oysters with fresh vegetables, he couldn't stand it anymore. He pointed to the empty plate and said: "You clean your food up better than Pupu."
Kylie paused. "Eh? What's the matter with Pupu?"
She looked at Ethan, then at the empty plate that she had cleaned up. This guy…with his poisonous tongue again.
Come on, and she had just cleaned off the plate. What's the big deal?
"How could I abuse Khloe's kindness?" Kylie buried her head and began to hunt for another plate of sliced seasoned skate with vegetables.
"Do you believe that I can eat all these slices together, as a whole skate?"
She was pleased to do so, but her chin was suddenly pinched by a big hand, and her head was twisted towards him.
Kylie could not speak. She felt a handkerchief falling against her mouth, helping to clean up the sauce around her lips.
This woman ate like a horse.
The man wiped her mouth very seriously, while she looked at the man's perfect face, and her saliva became somewhat uncontrollable so that he kept having to wipe her mouth.
Kylie regained her composure. She took out a paper towel and wiped herself clean.
She was a little embarrassed and turned to the waiter. "One more banana split, please."
"No." Ethan snorted.
The man had been very gentle to her. His sudden cold voice shocked the waiter.
Kylie's glaring eyes were infinitely black. But he had no intention of giving in. "You have eaten too much meat. If you eat more ice cream, you'll easily get diarrhea."
"It's my business."
"You have diarrhea and keep going to the bathroom, it affects my sleep, and I can't sleep well."
In front of this overbearing and unreasonable man, Kylie did not know what to say.
The waiter could understand the meaning behind this. The man was distressed for her, but he did not say it clearly.
In the end, Kylie rubbed her stomach and sat up with satisfaction. "Ok, that's fine. Let's go home." Ethan glanced at her, and consciously leaned over. She grabbed his wrist and said with posture, "Well, I overeat. Thom… Oops!"
When he patted her head, she immediately said, with a cockney accent: "I eat too much. Let's have a walk."
The man thought of twilight in the pool and was immediately calm.
When they went downstairs, some of the guests who had not left were still talking about Khloe.
Since Khloe had entered the entertainment industry, the roles she had played had basically been the image of a good girl. In her current role, she was forced to become a strong businesswoman and was cheated on by the husband.
With the company's publicity and Lucas's packaging, she had countless fans. Even if there wasn't such an episode, everyone was willing to believe her words.
Instead, Kylie had started her career earlier than Khloe, but she had always had negative roles. She had even fewer fans than an Internet celebrity.
Outside of the restaurant, Kylie was inspired in a moment. "It's always said that seeing is believing. But sometimes seeing is not believing."
Ethan gave her a look. "For example?"
Kylie looked at him from top to bottom and snorted.
"For example, people think that we're a couple, but actually we're not."
