"I want mango flavor."
Melinda called, grinning happily. A smile tugged at the corners of Jonas's lips as he was waiting in line to get an ice cream cone for her.
Holley strutted towards Jonas and interlinked her arms with his. But he wriggled away from her hold.
"Jonas, don't you see that she's doing it intentionally?"
Holley said anxiously. If someone had told Holley that Jonas would wait in a long queue one day to get an ice cream cone for Melinda, she would have laughed.
She didn't expect that things would change in Melinda's favor soon. Holley felt as if her entire world had fallen apart.
"Mellie likes it,"
Jonas said, shrugging casually. Melinda's skin broke into goose bumps when she heard Jonas's words. Her heart started to beat frantically. Holley's eyes widened with shock. She stomped her foot angrily. "Have you fallen in love with that bitch?"
Holley felt that Jonas wouldn't fall in love with a woman like Melinda. She pacified her wounded heart by telling herself that Nelson must have forced Jonas to get along with Melinda. She couldn't help but feel sorry for him.
"She is Mrs. Gu,"
Jonas grunted as his body stiffened. Holley opened her mouth to say something but decided against it. She didn't want to annoy Jonas.
Jonas smiled at Melinda who was relishing her ice cream cone. "You should have given me a bite," Jonas said, arching an eyebrow.
"Mr. Gu, eating ice cream isn't good for you. You need to start taking your medicines."
Melinda tried hard to suppress her laughter. She loved teasing Jonas. Her eyebrows furrowed when she saw Holley standing behind him.
"We are on a date and you've brought your ex-girlfriend with you. You're impossible, Mr. Gu."
Jonas didn't know why Melinda called him Mr. Gu. He wondered if she was making fun of him or preferred calling him that. Whatever the reason was, Jonas loved it when she called him Mr. Gu.
"Melinda, stop acting too smart, you..." Holley lost her cool and was seething with rage. Jonas called his bodyguards and instructed them to take Holley away. He didn't want her disturbing their date.
The entire day had passed in the blink of an eye. They had shopped a lot of things and Melinda was happy about making Holley jealous. Unfortunately, she had to face some repercussions too. The cool drinks and ice creams were ravaging her stomach.
Several days later, they finally decided to put an end to their act. Jonas headed to work and Melinda stayed home to write.
