"Hey Lea how good are you with computers?" Jenny asked.
"Hmmm.... I can tell I am good at it, not bad.." Lea said.
"Then you are really lucky Liam is the best one in our team. I am sur-" jenny was cut in between while speaking.
"Are you kidding me here girl... what do you mean my just good at it ha...I have seen the framed certificate and award in your house in New York. At least don't speak like this in front of me" Sharen suddenly exclaimed.
"En...it's nothing like that..." Lea spoke
"What do you mean?" Liam asked Sharen as others also looked at her with a questioning look on their face.
"It is you Liam who is lucky to have a partner like her in this project. She is the creator of the 'Alpha' software which is being used by many multi-national companies and she has also been awarded as the youngest genius by the President." Sharen said.
After hearing her words everyone turned and looked at Lea when Liam asked her "Is what Sharen said really true?"
Hearing his question she just scratched the back of her head looked down embarrassed and just said "En" as silence descended.
Breaking the awkward silence Lea spoke again "But I still have a lot to learn that's the reason I told I am just good."
"Are you kidding us girl...Alpha is the best security software in the market now, no one has ever been able to breach it. In fact our college also uses that software only" Jude spoke.
All of a sudden Vickey who was sitting next to Liam turned towards him and gave him a tight hug and as he said "congratulations brother... all of us need a party."
"For what?" Liam asked with a confused look on his face now.
"It's obvious with her by your side you are already selected for the competition and probably the winner also" Vickey replied to which everyone agreed and started asking for a party when Lea spoke "guys you are just thinking too highly of me... there is noth-"
She was cut in between by Liam as he looked into her eyes and said "stop being so modest and so low of yourself. You have earned the acknowledgement that you are receiving."
Lea just become silent after that as she could not come up with anything to speak as she listen to his words looking into his eyes that were staring back at her intently.
Then Liam looked at others as he spoke "I don't know we will win or not now only but the party is 'ON' today at 8PM in Neon Club."
Wooo... everyone cheered with happiness.
Then they heard another voice "OK then if this party is really happening it will be from both of us not only Liam. As a team it's responsibility is on both of us." Then smiled.
"OK whatever you feel is right..." Sharen said "let's go home now it's going to get late, we have to get ready it's already 6PM now."
Yes lets go... they asked the waiter for the bill and paid it before leaving.
Alex passed his car keys to Jude as he was going to ride back home with Sharen.
Lea and Liam were walking behind everyone when Liam turned with a smile on his face towards Lea and said in a low voice which only she could hear "I have confidence in my partner."
Hearing this Lea turned stiff and just looked at him for a few seconds before turning her head towards the other side.
