Just as they finished their meal, Uriah was holding a suit. jacket in his hand. ” Uriah,” Jackson called out as he walked
It was unexpected to encounter the two of them in this place.
“What are you doing here?” Uriah spoke, his deep voice always carrying a hint of coldness.
Those who knew him were aware that he was always like this, but those who didn’t might perceive him as aloof.
“I came here to have a meal with a friend. Uriah, have your eaten? If not, join us,” Jackson suggested.
“I just finished eating with Uriah,” he replied.
“How about going inside and sitting together?” Jackson looked at Uriah.
It would be a good opportunity for the two of them to meet Alva and treat it as a friendly gathering.
“No, we have something to attend later on.”
Seeing Jackson’s slight disappointment, Bella smiled and said, “It’s not a big deal. When we all have free time someday, we’ll invite your friend, and we can all get to know each other.”

Uriah said, “We’ll leave now.”
As they left, they passed by a private room, Bella glanced inside.
A woman with long hair cascading like seaweed was
seemingly making a phone call. Her head was slightly tilted, and her thick locks fell across her face, obscuring it. Only her delicate fingers and a glimpse of her fair wrist were visible.
She curved her lips.
As Uriah descended the stairs, she glanced down the hallway and happened to see Jackson entering that private room. The arc of Bella’s smile deepened.
“Do you know what you just missed?” She held onto Uriah, leaning closer to him, her demeanour becoming more feminine.
Noticing the joy in her voice, Uriah looked at her and asked, “What?”
“Jackson’s future fiancée,” Bella said.
Uriah raised an eyebrow, neither confirming nor denying it.
Bella, who is not convinced and continued, “I just took a glance, and there was a girl in the private room. Look at Jackson, has he been seen with any girls in the past two years? That girl must be the one he’s interested in.”

Bella, surprised, asked “Why?”
He spoke with such certainty, as if it were true.
Uriah didn’t answer her. He went to the front of the car and opened the door for her.
Bella didn’t get in.
She had the look as if conveying, “If you don’t tell me, I won’t get in.”
Uriah had no choice but to say, “Until something is conclusively settled, there are always variables.”
Therefore, his answer was not definite.
Bella stood there, unsure of what to say for a moment.
Uriah got into the car, started the engine, and saw her still standing outside, looking contemplative.
With one hand on the steering wheel and the other resting on the car window, he watched her.
Bella looked at him, and something flickered in her eyes.
She got in the car and looked at him. “Is it possible for us to separate before we get married?”
Uriah’s dark eyes twitched, and his gaze deepened.
Within that deep darkness, there was a trace of unfamiliar perplexity even to him.
Bella pursed her lips, turned her head to look ahead, and lifted her chin slightly. “I believe that if someone loves another

After saying that, she looked at Uriah. “Let’s make a bet. Jackson will definitely end up with the girl he’s interested in.”
“If I win, the day Jackson gets married will also be the day we get married. If I lose, we’ll part ways.”
Uriah squinted his eyes, and something stirred in his deep, intense gaze.
Bella curved her lips, exuding her usual confidence. ” Uriah, do you dare to bet with me?”
