Violet’s face turned red instantly, and her voice sounded muffled. “Yeah, I know.”
Since she decided to marry Patrick, she had been well-prepared for this. She wasn’t the kind of woman who easily fell for others, but she wasn’t a conservative or rigid girl either.
Since she had taken on the role of someone’s wife to protect herself, sacrifices were naturally expected.
But she still hoped that day would come later. The later, the better. After all, they were strangers until this very moment.
Throughout the journey, Patrick didn’t say a word. Even during the meal, he remained silent, which made the atmosphere thick with tension.
After finishing the meal, Violet excused herself. After all, she had a tough battle to fight in the afternoon.
Patrick glanced at her and said, “No matter what you’re planning to do, my assistant will pick you up at seven tonight. It’s our wedding night. Keep that in mind.”
Violet blushed and replied in a low voice, “Okay, I will.”
With that, she left in a hurry.
Watching Violet’s figure, the assistant couldn’t help but comment, “The way Mrs. Hersey talks to you reminds me of Miss Tyler, and they look quite alike!”
Patrick’s gaze swept over him like a sharp blade, causing a shiver to run down the assistant’s spine. “You’ve worked for me for so long, so I thought you had some discretion in what to say and what not to.”
The assistant shrank his neck in fear.
Patrick paused for a second and continued, “Besides, they are two different kinds of people.”
The assistant had a pitiful expression on his face as he said, “Sorry Mr. Hersey, I shouldn’t have said that.”
Patrick ignored his words, his gaze cold and intimidating. “Follow her. If anything happens, intervene immediately.”
The assistant nodded at once and replied, “I’ll go right away!”
“Remember, I will never let my woman be bullied by anyone.
Understand?” Patrick’s expression was icy and arrogant as if he were a deity on a pedestal, noble and untouchable.
The assistant nodded like crazy, sheepishly turned around, and left.
Just as the assistant left, Patrick’s phone suddenly rang. He calmly glanced at it, and his pupils visibly contracted.
“What’s up?” Patrick answered the call, his tone so cold that it was suffocating.
“Patrick, I heard you got married to someone else?” Gloria Tyler’s voice sounded as if she would cry at any time.
Patrick’s voice became even colder. “I said I wouldn’t give anyone a
chance to stand me up for the fourth time.”
Gloria’s voice sounded somewhat desperate. “I already explained it. I had something to do in Freiland. Why can’t you give me some time? Is our relationship always inferior to your pride? Patrick, you are always so arrogant. Do you really love me?”
The woman on the other end of the phone continued to shout desperately, but Patrick’s face remained cold as he hung up the phone. Did he love her? Of course, he had feelings for her, but if she relied on his love for her to manipulate him, he would definitely teach her a lesson. Since she dared to stand him up, he could easily find another woman to take her place and make her regret it.
As soon as Violet got into the car, she opened up the entertainment news. With just one glance, she could see the hottest piece of entertainment news at the moment.
“CEO of Oceanen Jewelry, Accompanied by His Mysterious New Wife, Heads to the City Hall!” the title read.
There was a picture to prove it.
Also, there were all kinds of comments below.
“Damn, a new scumbag has been exposed. Wasn’t he supposed to be with Violet, the designer of Oceanen Jewelry?”
“Maybe he went to the city hall with Violet!”
“No way, that’s impossible. I ve seen Violet in person, and their heights don’t match at all! Seriously!”
“Could it be that Russell Fraley is another scumbag who’s dating several
women? He’s not afraid of getting caught by his girlfriend?”
“Whether he’s a scumbag or not, maybe they’ve already broken up in private! This is all just hype. Stay calm and enjoy the show, everybody!” “How is that possible? Someone took pictures of them yesterday. They were happily attending Veronica’s city-level jewelry competition celebration banquet!”
“Anyway, this guy has a girlfriend, and he’s able to go to the city hall with a mysterious woman without his girlfriend noticing. I’m sure about one thing. He’s a genius! A goddamn genius!”
“Well, looks like my mother is right. All men are jerks!”
“Hey babe, I’m not a jerk! Contact me! My phone number is…” Watching all those funny comments on the screen, Violet chuckled.
At this moment, Russell called.
“Violet, where are you? The reporters are here waiting for you. The press conference is starting soon. Come on! Haven’t you seen what they’re saying online?”
Listening to Russell’s anxious tone, a mocking smile appeared on Violet’s lips. “Sure, I’m at the front door.”
After Violet finished speaking, she hung up the phone and went upstairs.
As soon as Russell saw Violet, it was as if he had caught a lifeline. He hurriedly pulled her and headed toward the press conference venue.
“You know what you should say later, right?”
