“Reserved?” Noel exclaimed in shock. “It’s only 6 PM! Has there been a mistake there?”

“There isn’t. I’m afraid I would have to ask you to leave.”

“Why? We haven’t finished our food!” Mandy snapped—ever self-important, this naturally left her furious.

“There’s no reason in particular. You’re just not welcome in this premises.”

“Don’t you know who I am?!”

“No, I don’t,” the waiter replied plainly.

“You don’t know who Mandy is? She’s a top star and the heiress to Jessop Ventures.” Noel name-dropped beside them.

“Oh,” the waiter said, but he remained cold as ever. “This way please, Ms. Jessop.”

Mandy and Noel were both left gritting their teeth in rage, but just as they got to their feet to leave, they suddenly saw Cordy sitting at the next table.

What was she doing there?!

They soon noticed the man and child with Cordy as well.

Despite her pride, Mandy was instantly bewitched by John’s sheer beauty.

She was left wondering when someone that handsome existed in North City—not even the top stars in showbiz could match him!

Noel came to her senses then and called out, “Sis?”

Cordy simply ignored her.

Noel turned to John then. She was likewise bewitched, but also jealous that Cordy could get himself such a beautiful man.

Not even Kyle was anywhere near that good-looking!

Aggrieved, she then remembered something at the next second and quickly said, “That’s the firefighter you fell for, right?!”

Beside her, Mandy was immediately disappointed.

It was not surprising that she had never met him before—he was completely beneath them.
