“I-I’m not hiding anything, Evan.” she stated in a shaky voice.
“I see. You still don’t trust me.” he dropped her hand abruptly.
When he spoke again, his voice was cold and distant. “Good night, Chloe.”
She closed the door and he drove away immediately.
Chloe wrapped her arms around her body to keep herself warm.
Once again, she had ruined everything.
After a few days, the restaurant's grand opening had finally arrived.
Jane and Carlos couldn't be happier and more euphoric, while Chloe smiled on the outside and slowly died on the inside.
Evan never got in touch after that dinner.
Had he decided to move on without her? Would he show up that night?
The thought of seeing him warmed her heart and made her a little more excited, so she decided to go to the salon and buy a special outfit for that occasion.
Perhaps it was the perfect time to tell Evan the truth.
