All Melinda wanted was some quiet time to herself, but unfortunately, she was deprived of that luxury by Holley. Having run out of patience, she stood up and walked over to a stout, middle-aged man not too far away. Melinda smiled at the man, nudging him with her elbow as she whispered something into his ears and cast a short and meaningful glance at Holley.

Not knowing what agreement they had reached, Holley noticed the man flashing a devious smirk on his face before he started to approach Holley.

Holley's eyes shot up in bewilderment as she didn't know what to do. This man had been her sugar daddy and she couldn't afford to get on his bad side at any cost. When he came over and grabbed her by the waist, Melinda sneered at her and shook her head.

Melinda did not have time breathe even after she got rid of Holley as someone grabbed her wrist from behind and pulled her into an embrace. As she looked up and locked eyes with Jonas, she could see the resentment he carried for her in his deep eyes.

Any other person would think that they were very close, judging by how they were holding each other, but the truth was far from it.

"You are such a conniving person. I have no doubt that you must have tricked my grandfather in the past."

Melinda bit her lip and her face turned pale. She seemed exhausted and clearly uninterested to get into an argument with Jonas. Besides, it wouldn't lead to anything good anyway. In Jonas' eyes, she would always be the woman who tricked her way into marrying him. If it weren't for her, he would have been married to someone he actually loved.

"Are we going to do this again? What's the point? It's not like you're ever going to change your mind about me!"

"Why don't you give it another shot? Go on!" Jonas' voice was faint, low and magnetic. Although, she had lowered her eyes to the floor, she couldn't avoid feeling captivated by him.
