Two days later, Leandro’s private jet finally took off from Velvetwood Airport, heading to Sunburst City.
They landed in Sunburst City right around noon,
Leandro returned home, hastily showered and changed clothes before rushing to his company. After taking care of a jet lagged and sleepy Valerio, Seraphina also left home and headed to Carney Artful Reverie.
During her absence, everything in the gallery had been arranged in an orderly manner. However, once Seraphina started working, she found that there were still a lot of things to deal with.
She made minor adjustments to the exhibited paintings and categorized some new ones. She reviewed some works of new artists and set prices for some pieces. After a busy day, it was already getting dark.
The gallery staff invited her for dinner. Seraphina was about to accept when she suddenly spotted a flashy motorcycle zooming by on the street outside.
“I just flew back from Starhaven today, I’m kinda beat and wanna head home early” Seraphina said. “You guys have been working hard, go grab dinner at a nice restaurant, it’s on me.”
The group burst into laughter, Thank you, Mrs. Reynolds.”
Seraphina let them leave first and stayed behind to close up.
After everyone had left, she prepared to leave.
As Seraphina was carefully locking the door a flurry of footsteps sounded behind her. She turned around to see Abbot and another bodyguard blocking her, and Keeley barred outside by them.
In this situation, Keeley obviously tried to approach her from behind but was blocked by her bodyguards.
Dressed in black motorcycle gear, Keeley looked quite thin and a bit pale.
He stood three meters away from Seraphina, cocked his head to look at her, and chuckled, “So…you’re on guard against me?”
Seraphina stared at him for a moment, then smiled slightly and said to Abbot, “No need to be so tense, this man, is a friend of mine.”
The word ‘friend’ raised Keeley’s eyebrows slightly
Abbot frowned, turned his head and looked at her, ‘Ma’am?*
“You guys are here, you think he’s gonna gobble me up?” Seraphina waved her hand. “Ill chat with him, you guys chill”
Upon hearing this, Keeley walked to the side of the street, leaned against a lamppost, and lit up a cigarette.
After locking the door, Seraphina walked over to him, looked at him for a while, and slowly said, “You look thinner, what happened?”
Keeley glanced at her. “Don’t you know what happened to me?”
Seraphina paused for a moment before saying, “I really don’t”
As soon as she finished speaking, Keeley suddenly turned to her his gaze fixed on her, cold and gloomy
Seraphina stood calmly, her expression unchanged, and the smile on her lips remained.
“How could you not know?” Keeley’s voice was slightly hoarse, “I know how smart you are, why pretend in front of me?”
Seraphina nonchalantly kicked the ground with the tip of her shoe, ‘Depends on what you’re talking about.”
Keeley stared at her for a while, then laughed again, but the coldness in his eyes did not disappear,
“I really believed in you…” he said, “but you betrayed me.”
Hearing this, Seraphina didn’t panic, but let out a somewhat helpless laugh, “Why would you believe in me? Do you really know who I am? Why trust a stranger so easily?”
“So, I misunderstood you, right?” Keeley counter asked.
Seraphina sighed softly and said, “I’m already another man’s woman”
