Chapter 269 For Best Friends
The salesman thought for a while. “Sorry, sir, we don’t have a dress of a similar style.
“But if you need it, you can choose to customize it.”
Hearst pondered for a moment. “How long will it take?”
“I’ll pay three times the price. Make it two days.”
The salesman’s eyes lit up, and he hurriedly said, “I will contact the designer now.”
After the salesman left, Nikki walked over with her dress lifted a little. “Hearst, were you a dog in
your previous life?”
She had never seen such a person before.
“Do you want to be with Samuel?” Hearst glared at her.
Nikki immediately shut up.
Samuel had recently gone to a tropical rainforest. Even the bites of the mosquitoes there hurt, let alone other ferocious wild animals.
She would not go there to suffer.
In the afternoon, Anaya recalled the few questions that Hearst had asked today before she
When people were not clear about someone’s preferences, people would say their own preferences.
Hearst tricked her.
Anaya thought and couldn’t help but laugh.
After work, she went to visit Adams in the hospital.
Adams was almost fully recovered now, but the doctor suggested that he should recuperate in the hospital in case of a relapse.
After Anaya paid the bill and returned to the ward, Adams asked her, “How are you going to celebrate your birthday? Your birthday is coming.”
Anaya opened the lunch box sent by the butler and helped him put it on the small table on the bed. “Just hang out with a few friends.”
In the past years, Adams celebrated her birthday ceremoniously.
However, this year, the Dutt family was not in a good situation, so Adams couldn’t celebrate
Anaya’s birthday ceremoniously.
Anaya’s uncle and aunt were in prison. Adams was still in the hospital. If Anaya celebrated her
birthday ceremoniously, people would criticize her.
Adams understood her concerns, so he did not ask any further.
“What gift do you want? I will have someone prepare it for you.”
Anaya smiled and said without thinking, “I want you to live a long life. Can you give it to me?”
Adams laughed with the wrinkles on his face.
“You are becoming more and more adorable.”
“I have everything I need. This is the only thing I want.
The smile on Adams’ face grew even wider. “OK, you’ll get it.”
After taking a few bites of the food, Adams suddenly thought of something. “When are you going to bring Jared to see me?”
Anaya’s hand that was holding the fork froze for a moment before she said, “I’ll bring him here
after my birthday. He is abroad now.”
“How long have you been together?”
“It has been a while.”
“Is he nice to you?”
“Yes, he is very nice to me.”
“When am I going to have a great-grandson?”
“Next year…” Anaya answered subconsciously, and only after she finished speaking did she realize that something was wrong. “Grandpa! You…”
She did not know what to say, so she pretended to be angry when she looked at him.
“Alright, I’ll stop it. Let’s have dinner.” Adams kept a smile on his face.
After dinner, Anaya went back home alone.
Two days ago, Hearst was lying beside her, but today, she was alone. She couldn’t get used to it and couldn’t fall asleep until the early morning.
Two days later, her birthday was coming.
Aracely asked her out and took her to choose gifts.
Anaya complained, “Other people will prepare a surprise, but you take me to choose by myself.”
Aracely chuckled, “I don’t care. I’ll buy anything worth less than 1 million for you. Being close to you is what matters.”
Aracely had always been straightforward. Anaya did not argue with her and accompanied her to choose a birthday present for herself.
Aracely said that it was for Anaya, but in the end, Aracely bought a pair of necklaces.
The two necklaces were very similar in style, and they were for best friends.
One of them was for Aracely.
Anaya suspected that Aracely took her out because she wanted to shop.
Buying Anaya a present was not the main purpose.
They shopped for more than an hour and found a coffee shop to take a break.
It was getting late, and the neon lights kept flashing.
Anaya rested her chin on her hand as she looked at the night scene. Not long after, someone came to the table.
The glass window reflected a disgusting face, and Anaya pretended not to see it. She didn’t even look back.
Joshua confirmed that Anaya was staring at him through the window.
She deliberately ignored him, and Joshua pretended not to understand.
Anaya didn’t answer, but Aracely raised her head.
When Aracely saw Joshua, her face turned ugly.
“Mr. Maltz, are you taking a walk? Or are you a stalker?”
“I just happened to pass by,” Joshua said with a straight face.
“What a coincidence,” Aracely said in disbelief.
Joshua ignored her and looked at Anaya again. “I heard that tomorrow is your birthday.
“What gift do you
Anaya slowly turned around and looked at him lazily. “Will you give me any gift I want?”
She finally spoke to him. Joshua immediately said, “As long as I have it, I will give it to you.”
“I want you to stay away from me. I wonder if you can do it?” Anaya asked.
Joshua heard it, and his good mood was instantly ruined.
“If you can’t, then forget it. I don’t give a shit about other things.” Anaya picked up her bag, stood up, and said, “Mr. Maltz, please move. Stay out of my way.”
Joshua stared at her and did not move.
Anaya could only pull the chair away and walk past Joshua.
“Aracely, let’s go.”
Aracely packed her things and followed Anaya. Before leaving, she made a face at Joshua.
Joshua clenched his fists, but in the end, he did nothing.
After a while, Robin came over.
“I just came out of the bathroom. I think I saw Anaya and her friend. Did you see them?”
Joshua said coldly, “No.”
“Then let’s go after them. They seem to have bought a lot of things today. Let’s help them carry their shopping bags…”
“Why?” Robin frowned. “Didn’t you want to get her back? Is that your attitude?”
“She was cold to me just now. You can go by yourself!” Joshua was annoyed.
After Joshua finished speaking, he strode out of the coffee shop.
Robin was speechless.
Didn’t Joshua say that he didn’t see them?
It turned out that he had been turned down once.
It was already nine in the evening when Anaya and Aracely left the mall.
They went to the parking lot. Anaya intended to send Aracely back, but Aracely said that someone
would pick her up. So, she let Anaya go first.
Anaya was about to ask who would pick Aracely up when she saw a motorcycle parked by the
A fashionably dressed man got off the motorcycle and walked over to Aracely.
Aracely pulled him over and warmly introduced him to Anaya, “Anaya, this is my new boyfriend I told you about last time, Emmett Karley.”
As she spoke, she moved closer to Anaya’s ear and whispered, “Is he handsome? You can’t move your eyes away from him, right?”
Anaya didn’t feel the same way.
But she knew that Aracely was showing off.
Anaya looked up at the man who was walking over.
Aracely was probably going to get laid tonight.
