Chapter 996

Before she could finish her sentence, Geoffrey got the message and replied, "Do you have to threaten me like this? Minny, I think there is some misunderstanding between us. I'm not that kind of person!"

Minerva didn't forget his reputation as a womanizer. Moreover, this man almost tried to flirt with her too when they first met in an elevator.

Did he think that she had forgotten all about it?

"It doesn't matter what kind of person you are, just don't try to fool around with my friends."

"Fine, I understand. But Minny, what if your friends fall for me? Am I supposed to reject or accept them then?"

He let out an expression of doubt after saying that.

She was speechless. She gave him a look then got up and walked away.

He let out a sneaky laugh. Then, the message notification on his mobile phone rang. He looked down at his phone and saw a message from his blind date that was set up by Oscar for him.

"My gosh, what is this?" He thought to himself.

When they first got each other's phone numbers, they agreed that this was all their grandparents' idea and they were just putting on a show for them. They also agreed to not contact each other but to his surprise, she contacted him.

Geoffrey didn't want to have anything to do with the girl since she came from a family of high status because they tended to take things very seriously and he was not ready to commit to that.

Hence, he took a glance at the message and marked it as read, then he threw his phone aside and didn't bother with it anymore.

Not long after, Vera and Sam returned. Minerva was about to get up to open the door when she heard the doorbell but Geoffrey interrupted and said, "Minny, sit down! Let me get the door!"

Before she could reply, he had already run to the door and opened it.

Vera and Sam stood at the door with bags in their hands. When they didn't recognize the man who opened the door for them, they stared at each other in confusion.

She couldn't help but ask, "Are we at the wrong house?"

After saying that, she wanted to take a few steps back to check the floor number.

Since they were carrying too many things in their hands, the two of them rang the doorbell directly.

Hence, she thought they were on the wrong floor.

Before she could do so, Geoffrey walked up to her and enthusiastically helped her with the bags in her hands. "You're not on the wrong floor. This is the correct house. All these must be heavy, let me help you!" He exclaimed.

Vera stared at him strangely, and Geoffrey explained, "It's my pleasure to help a beautiful woman. It's nice to meet you. Let me introduce myself, I am Geoffrey Jules."

This inexplicable introduction stunned her and she felt that this man in front of her was being extraordinarily friendly with her. What's going on? At that moment, Sam took a step forward and stood in front of Vera.

"Sir, you..."

He frowned and was about to ask him about his identity when he saw Minerva standing at the door. She said, "You guys are back, come in quickly."


Seeing her, Vera realized that she was indeed at the right place. She quickly carried the things into the house and Geoffrey missed his chance to act as a gentleman. He let out a sigh and followed behind them.

When they entered the room, Minerva caught Geoffrey trying to hit on Vera.

"Hey pretty, how should I address you? I am Minerva and Sebastian's good friend. You can call me Geoffrey."

Vera felt shy, then took a glance at him.

"You can just call me Vera," she replied.

Geoffrey asked, "Is that your full name?" π™˜π™€π’Žπ’†π’π™€π’—π’†π’.π™˜π™€π’Ž

She was a little thrown off by his enthusiasm so she just replied with a simple nod. Then, he said with a huge smile on his face, "I don't believe that is your full name but since you said so, I'll just call you Vera then."

Sam, who was helping Vera keep the ingredients into the refrigerator, noticed that Geoffrey was trying to hit on her in front of him. He walked over with his eyebrows furrowed.

"Sir, are you going to help us cook since you're still here in the kitchen?"

Geoffrey was startled. He looked at the man in front of him who appeared quite hostile, and then recalled his behavior of protecting Vera earlier. He raised his eyebrows and asked, "Are you two a couple?"

Sam was about to deny it but Vera beat him to it, "What does it have to do with you?"

Geoffrey laughed, but didn't reply.

Minerva couldn't bear to watch any longer. She walked up to him and said, "Geoffrey, come out now!"

"Hey Minny, what's wrong?"

He turned his head and looked at her, but didn't move his feet.

She was annoyed by him. She gritted her teeth and said, "If you don't come out now and continue messing around, I am going to tell Sebastian!"

Tell Sebastian?

He blinked his eyes and said, "I'm not even hitting on his woman, so why would you tell him?"

"Yes, you're not hitting on his woman but do you know that Vera is Beanie's favorite aunt? Are you sure you want to go on like this?"

After mumbling these words a few times, Geoffrey suddenly came to his senses and his eyes became wide open.


"Come out!" Minerva said again.

This time he did not remain in place. He turned his head and gave Vera a pitiful look, and then turned around and went out. Vera and Sam were the only ones left in the kitchen.

After a moment of silence, she said, "You should go out too, I'll handle everything here."

"I'll stay and help you," he replied.

She looked indifferent and said, "Well, don't think that I'll fall for you just because of the things you've been doing recently."

His gaze looked empty when he heard her words but he got over it quickly.

"I'm only doing what I want to do. I don't have any other intentions. You don't have to feel pressured."

"No other intentions?" Vera glanced at him and added, "You're telling me that what you did the other night, you had 'no other intentions' either? I may not be smart but I'm not dumb."

Hearing this, Sam smiled and said,

"I'm just trying to help you cook a meal. Do you have to be so defensive with me? If what I did the

other day caused you trouble, I promise it won't happen again." Content belongs to NovelDrama.Org

It won't happen again...

She didn't believe his nonsense. She didn't expect him to kiss her that day.

Although it was just a light kiss on her lips, it was fatal enough. Moreover, he had been following her

around for the past few days and she seemed to be getting a little suspicious of his actions. Content belongs to NovelDrama.Org

He was trying to get close to her. Was he trying to pursue her?

Unfortunately, Quill was the only one on her mind.

Especially at times like this when she was feeling an overbearing sadness.

"I warn you, don't try to take advantage of the situation. My emotions are a mess right now."

Hearing that, he seemed to understand the implicit meaning behind her words. He smiled and said, "Are you saying that once you feel better, I can

start to pursue you?"

Her heart skipped a beat and she turned to look at him.
