SEDUCING THE DEVIL - Season 1 Episode 56
Aiden and Stephen automatically dashed out of the room, escaping from Nathan’s fury. He seemed so mad after hearing he had become a bet in a game of poker.
Stephen regretted allowing Aiden to speak up. His approach was so wrong. Who would be happy learning your friends used you as a bet?
‘He shouldn’t have said that!’ Stephen thought to himself while eyeing Aiden suspiciously.
“I wonder how you are able to woo and pick up ladies using your mouth. You are not a good speaker. You don’t know to sweet talk Nathan,” Stephen complained. They already reached the lobby.
“Nathan is Nathan. Not a woman!” Aiden spat back at him.
The two men continued walking, heading to the parking lot. Aiden was the only one who brought a car. He would just send Stephen back to his clinic.
“So what are we gonna do now? Should we ask Abigail to change her wish. We can fulfill anything as long as it is not related to Nathan,” Aiden said, taking a deep sigh.
Stephen stepped into the car first, sat in the front passenger seat while rubbing his chin, thinking so hard. When Aiden entered the driver’s seat, Stephen voiced his suggestion.
“Should I just volunteer myself to be her date?”
Aiden hastily turned in Stephen’s direction, narrowing his eyes at him. “Tell me honestly. Are you seriously having a crush on Abigail?”
The corners of Stephen’s lips curved up in a silly smile and said, “Of course not. I just find her amusing. She’s an interesting fellow.”
“Then why do want to date her?” Aiden was doubtful of his friend.
“To get to know her more,” he replied matter-of-factly.
“Sorry, Steph. But I guess you wouldn’t have the chance. Abigail wants Nathan, not you. Besides, I think she might be able to help Nathan heal his wounded heart. He had been broken since Monica died.” Aiden shared his thoughts. He started the car.
They were leaving the parking area when Stephen asked him to clarify his statement. “Why do you think so?”
“Because she’s the only woman who was bold and brave enough to sneak into his room, leaving her lingerie!” Aiden let out a loud chuckle, hitting his steering wheel. “I could imagine the shock on Nathan’s face when he found her bra under his bed!”
“Aiden Wu, I am warning you. Don’t ever mention that to Nathan. He will kill me for sure. I am not supposed to share this with you.”
“Yeah. I know!” Aiden brought his hand to his lips, moving his fingers as if he was zipping his mouth.
“Good. I don’t want us to get in trouble again and anger Nathan further. I think we are banned to see him for now.” Stephen leaned on his seat, settling down with most comfortable position he could find inside Aiden’s car.
Aiden focused on driving, not until something popped up in his mind. He immediately stepped on the brake and looked at Stephen. Fortunately, Stephen wore his seatbelt, otherwise, his body would be pushed forward, hitting the front and car’s compartment.
“Can’t you be more careful while driving? Why did you suddenly stop?” Stephen asked him.
Aiden just ignored Stephen’s remarks and spoke out his mind. “Oh wait!!! What if Nathan just mistook it for a dream? What if… it happened for real. Abigail was the girl, not Monica!”
Stephen told Aiden that Nathan had an intimate dream with Monica, that’s why he came up with this speculation. There was no way Abigail would leave her bra in that room for no reason.
Stephen fell silent for a moment. He rubbed his chin once more. He had the habit of doing this gesture whenever he would think about something.
“Actually, I also thought of this possibility and mentioned it to Nathan–”
“Then what did he say?” Aiden cut him off immediately. He was curious as to how Nathan reacted.
“He ignored my words, refusing to believe. He insisted that it was just a dream.” Stephen shrugged his shoulders.
“Steph! I have a plan. I think I know now how we can convince Nathan to date Abigail even just for a day!” Aiden enthusiastically said.
“How?” Stephen gave him a puzzled look.
Aiden smiled meaningfully before telling him what was on his mind. Stephen listened to him attentively, nodding his head once in a while. For the first time, he received a worthwhile suggestion from Aiden.
They would give it a try! But for now, they had to let Nathan’s anger subside first before talking to him once more.
Meanwhile, at Sparks Mansion, Abigail was secretly observing Chef Min’s accomplices. Since Nathan hadn’t returned home yet, Abigail decided to gather some evidence that would help her prove her innocence to Nathan.
She couldn’t threaten them that she would kill them. She was no longer an assassin. With this body, she was just an actress. So she had to find a way to make them confess and talk.
As Abigail continued to spy on Chef Min’s assistant cooks, she found out that one of them had a secret romance with the bodyguard.
She noticed how the assistant cook flirted with one of the bodyguards after delivering food. Her eyes lit up when an idea flashed in her mind.
“Hmmm, I think I have to use my second wish and ask Butler Li another favor,” Abigail mumbled to herself.
With that thought in mind, Abigail proceeded inside the house, searching for Butler Li. She found him in the living room, arranging some things. She smiled inwardly and slowly approached him.
“Butler Li, are you free? Can you grant me my second wish?” she asked him directly.
“I’m free this afternoon. How can I help you, Miss Abi?”
Abigail looked around, surveying her surroundings. When she found no one else aside from them in that living room, Abigail leaned closer to Butler Li and whispered, “Can you buy me a strong aphrodisiac drug?”
Butler Li gasped as soon as he heard that. “Miss Abi, Don’t tell me… Are you planning to drug our master?” he asked her with big round eyes.
“Will you sneak into his room again tonight? Do you want me to buy hot and sexy lingerie for you? Are you going to leave your panty this time?” he added in a low voice that only the two of them could hear.
