That night, Karen snatched a bag of marbles from some random kids. The angry parents who scolded and humiliated Karen in front of all guests happened to be the host and hostess of the socialite event. In the world and eyes of socialites, Karen's actions must have come from some lousy, ill-mannered parents. Therefore, everyone was informed before midnight through all digital platforms to temporarily blacklist the Yin family from the business field.
"That's not fair!" Karen's voice made everyone turn towards her, followed by silence filling the room. Professor Luo Xia asked as he could hardly contain his excitement, "in what ways was it unfair?"
He breathed in relief when her hands had stopped teasing his butt. Because of the change in her body posture, he now had more room to sit on, making his butt a little happier than before. Still, he wished she would eat a full course meal first before continuing her nap.
Lily arrived to pick her up at exactly twelve. After a whole supermarket and crab picking shopping session, they went back to Lily's place to prepare the dish. The girls wore their aprons and washed their hands.
"Chen Mu, let me know if you need anything. I'll provide everything you need as long as you name it. I believe that she will get better under our strict watch. I'll stand by your side and so will everyone else. You're not alone. If you ever need to release your negative emotions or just talk it out, I'll be here."
Of course, since the leader has given his command, nobody would stay an extra millisecond. They crossed their fingers and prayed for Alexander's wellbeing.
After all the laughter and jokes were done, Lily and Lin Que helped them clean up the condo before bidding good bye. The girls properly removed their makeup and by the time they were done with everything, It was nearly midnight. The first thing Lily did when she got to the car was text Susu, "Don't worry too much! Everything will be fine. I hope you enjoyed tonight's activities. Mwahhhh~ Sweet dreams, honey bun <3 "
Back then, Karen caught Kitty combining multiple academic papers into one for her final paper. She was the one who reported Kitty's doings to her professor. Karen wanted to ruin Kitty's reputation by recording a video on how the professor confronts and expels her after school. Who knew that the professor would be a pervert and make such a disgusting deal with her?
Before Karen could scream on top of her lungs, Kitty took a claw hammer from Karen's supplies box that the guard had discovered earlier. Zi Yan already instructed Kitty to extract Karen's teeth using the claw side of the hammer and break her arms for revenge.
"Thank me?" Tian Yuo's voice was filled with disappointment and frustration. He felt like he had just slapped himself across the face.
"Welp, no point in hiding it from you. I've been waiting for you to tell me this yourself. I've known even before we started dating."
"My initials are common out there. It could mean a lot of things, and the designer may not be me. How come you were so sure that the rose stamp belonged to me and that I had another method of proving myself? How come you were so confident in my designs? how come-"
I wish everyone a Happy New Years and may all your goals for this year come true. I wish everyone will live their year filled with smiles on their faces and the fullest of many years to come.
That night, both of them fell asleep in deep slumber. Without any chaos or drama, their minds were free and happy. The next morning, Susu woke up and cuddled up to the warmth she felt.
"I, what? did you want to say that I cheated again? Sorry, but you're the one who chose the model, not me. No matter how it turns out, I wouldn't be able to cheat. Plus, if you were the original designer then you would've known about the shadows and wings. Unfortunately, you didn't show that part off and didn't know even a bit about the product. Copy cats will always just be a counterfeiter."
He lifted his head and replied with an energy lacking voice, "Leader Rong, I wouldn't dare ignore your mighty presence. What would you like me to say?"
"And this here, do you dare say it is not lemongrass and mustard on it? I can prove it to you." Lin Que had the shoe in his hand and maintained his calmness. Everyone knew that the calmer Lin Que looked, the angrier he was.
Before the girls stepped their first step down the staircase, a man had interrupted, "What a coincidence to run into you."
Susu twist and turned in bed; feeling unease. Ariana looked up from her laptop and stopped what she was doing to make sure that everything was alright with her.
"I'm home." Chen Mu said as he walked to the living room where his parents would usually be enjoying their private time after a long day of work. He walked in and like the usual, his parents were sipping tea waiting for him patiently. The only thing that is different is their mood.
Chen Nan and Lin Que looked up to the ceiling to control their tears while the girls cried. Of all the hugs that the girls shared, this was one that they would never break or interrupt.
"C..Chuoyin...brand..." Karen said in a much lowered voice than before. The excitement in her voice had obviously dropped down. Susu smiled and fixed her dress neatly, "Now that you satisfied your curiosity, would you like to see the brand for my bag as well? Oh, and my accessories."
