Chapter 22 If Lowell High School Misses the Championship Because of Hedy 

Hedy was a little upset. 

The cake was taken halfway, so she was far away from Preston when she slept. 

There was a gap between them, like a young couple who had quarreled. 

On the other side, Preston leaned against the bedside while reading, and occasionally glanced at Hedy out of the corner of his eye with a faint smile. 

It was the first time he’d seen Hedy sulking. 

It might sound a bit inconsiderate, but she was indeed much cuter than when she was expressionless. 

Early the next morning, Hedy slowly sat up straight with dark circles under her eyes. 

She had been too far away from Preston last night, and she couldn’t smell the soothing fragrance, so she hadn’t slept very well. 

She rubbed the back of her neck and walked out of the bedroom. 

“Good morning, Ms. Ellis. Childe King ordered before he left that if you want to eat cake, there is chilled tiramisu in the refrigerator.” The maid followed Hedy with a big smile on her face.

The proprietress supported Ronin to get out of the car, “Dad, be careful.” 

Ronin was her father. 

After Ronin, who was on crutches, got out of the car, the proprietress also noticed Hedy. 

“It’s you, the beautiful girl who bought the cake yesterday!” The proprietress’s eyes lit up, “What a coincidence. Why are you here?” 

For someone who liked good looks, the existence of Hedy was a bunch of sparkling rare treasures! 

“She is a student of Lowell High School, and she is also the one who will participate in the inter-school league.” Ronin glanced at Hedy and walked into the school on crutches. 

“So you are my dad’s student. With his indifferent temperament, he must have caused you a lot of trouble, right?” The proprietress smiled awkwardly, “Do you like dessert? You can come to my shop after school. You can eat whatever you want! It’s on the house.” 

Her words attracted Hedy.
