Mia faltered. "I'll let you off the hook today."

"Wait. What's going on between you and Nicholas?"

Mia raised her brows. "Why do you ask?"

Loosening his tie, Timothy said, "As your ex-husband, can't I ask about your relationship status? Who you're going to date matters to the kids as well. As their father, I should be concerned about this issue."

"Mr. Barrett, I didn't expect you to be so nosy," Mia remarked.

Timothy's expression stiffened. "Well, it turns out I'm nosy."

"Are you jealous, Timothy?"

This was an intentional question. She knew his arrogance would prevent him from admitting his true feelings.

"Yeah, I am jealous."

Mia was stunned. His answer caught her off guard.

"Mia, I'm being serious. I want to court you again and salvage our relationshipโ€”"

Before Timothy could end his sentence, the call ended abruptly. ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘š๐‘’๐˜ฏ๐‘œ๐˜ท๐‘’๐‘™.๐‘๐‘œ๐‘š

He stared at his phone in a daze. Then, he texted Mia.

"I won't give up."

Sitting on the edge of her bed, Mia saw the text he sent. She didn't bother to reply to him.

As she scrolled through their conversation, it was evident that he sent more messages than she did. She basically didn't reply much.

This reminded her a lot of how she used to treat Timothy five years ago. Now, their positions had reversed.

It felt satisfying, indeed. She had to make him feel the agony he used to put her in back then. In fact, this was far from enough since she suffered for five whole years.

Mia went back to Ginger's room and realized that she was already sound asleep She seemed content with her limbs sprawled out on the bed. Placing the Apple Watch on the table, she tucked Ginger in Content Frankly, she didn't blame Ginger for contacting Timothy in secret. She had always been kind, and it was only natural that she would be curious about her biological father.

The next day, Mia went to work.

As soon as she arrived at the company, Peyton approached her and said, "Ms Lane, these are the proposals from the companies that intend to work with us. You can have a look."

"Put them here."

Mia glanced at the proposals. Would one of them belong to the Barrett Group?

Noticing Mia's expression, Peyton immediately said, "Ms. Lane, there are no proposals submitted by Barrett Group. It seems like they're quite self aware."

Mia chanced a glance at him. "Did I ask you?"

That wasn't what she intended to know. She couldn't care less whether Timothy wanted to work with her.

She was just reminded of how Sharon, Shelly, and Luna felt so proud for being able to host banquets at Aide Castle a few days ago at the banquet. She found it really amusing. She bet those three women would be seething when they returned home.

What they valued so much turned out to be worthless to her instead.

Peyton continued, "But someone from Yellow Island actually om submitted a proposal. We weren't even closely acquainted with them before."

Mia found it strange as well. Not only were they, not closely acquainted, but did the Yellow el.n

Islanders forget how Louisa barged into the research institute and caused a scene? They ended up having a feud with with the Lane family. It was a well-known fact that she wasn't just a Lane, but she was also the owner of Aide Castle.

What did the Yellow Islanders want?

Just then, she received a text from Jasmine.

"My mom's planning to divorce my dad."novelbin
