Speaking of that, Jacqueline inhaled before continuing, “As long as Ms. Smith can’t tolerate the insults, she’ll definitely leave of her own volition. And so, you won’t have to feel conflicted about facing her anymore, Shane.”

“Jacqueline Graham, you know full well whether you’re really doing it for my sake or your own sake.” As Shane stared at her, his eyes narrowed as though he had seen through her.

Stricken, Jacqueline instinctively averted her gaze. “Of course, I’m doing it for your sake, Shane. I’m now dating Jackie, so I’ll never betray him.”

“Hopefully, that’s true,” Shane coldly asserted.
