MOST POWERFUL HUSBAND, VOLUME 7 - Season 12 Episode 44
Everleigh got a little carried away while thinking about her plan, and she was somewhat absent-minded when talking to Leila.
At this moment, Alyssa and Bethany arrived in their boyfriends’ cars.
After they gathered outside the restaurant, Samiel urged, “Mr. Dunne is already waiting for us inside. Let’s hurry in!”
After walking into the private room Roger booked, they saw a young man in his thirties waiting impatiently for them. His eyes instantly lit up when he saw Leila.
This young man was naturally Roger, the protagonist of the dinner party tonight.
Roger was undeniably good-looking. He didn’t have a beer belly or a balding head, probably because he was still young. But he had dark circles under his eyes, a clear sign of excessive indulgence in alcohol and lust.
From his appearance, he looked just like a philandering scion.
“Mr. Dunne, we’re sorry for keeping you waiting!” Samuel was the first to apologize with a flattering smile on his face.
Roger ignored him and instead stared straight at Leila coming in from behind and said with a smile, “It’s okay. As long as Leila comes, I don’t mind waiting another hour!”
He only had eyes for Leila, so he didn’t notice Lucas next to her at all.
Instantly, the others felt a little awkward and unsure of what to say.
They all knew what intentions Roger had for Leila. Even the dinner party tonight was meant for her. If he found out that she came with her boyfriend, he would definitely lose his temper!
They were at a loss for words, and the atmosphere suddenly became cold and awkward.
At this moment, Leila held Lucas’s arm and said graciously, “Mr. Dunne, let me introduce you. This is my boyfriend, Lucas Gray.”
Tension arose in the blink of an eye.
Roger’s face darkened as he glared daggers at Leila’s arm holding Lucas’s. He seemed to be on the verge of losing his temper.
But he didn’t have a valid reason to be angry, so he was even more infuriated.
Seeing things about to go awry, Alyssa and Bethany were both frightened. They hurriedly lowered their heads without daring to even breathe, for fear that Roger would vent his anger on them.
But at this moment, Everleigh took the initiative to go forward and pour two glasses of wine. She put one in front of Roger and said with her most charming smile, “Mr. Dunne, since we’re late, I’ll punish myself with a drink!”
With that, Everleigh picked up the glass of wine in front of her and downed it in one go.
Roger didn’t care about her actions, and he just felt annoyed that she was standing in front of him and blocking his view. But since Leila was present, he had to act gentlemanly.
After Everleigh finished the drink, Roger said through clenched teeth, “So, Leila already has a boyfriend. How come I’ve never heard about this before?”
Despite noticing the unnatural expressions on Alyssa’s and Samuel’s faces, Roger didn’t bother asking them. Instead, he looked directly at Lucas and deliberately asked, “Hey, what’s the name of Leila’s boyfriend? I’m sorry, I couldn’t remember it.”
He obviously said this intentionally.
Lucas smiled without losing his temper. “My name is Lucas Gray.”
“Oh! Lucas Gray. I see,” Roger said in an exaggerated tone. Then he asked, “Lucas, you should already be working, right? Where do you work?”
Roger’s eyes were full of disdain.
Especially after seeing Lucas’s extremely simple clothes, he labeled Lucas as a penniless man.
In Roger’s opinion, Lucas was a loser who wasn’t even fit to carry his shoes.
Yet Lucas had snatched the woman he had set his sights on!
