Madelyn had once felt that doing everything for someone she loved was what made her happy.
She had been mostly alone growing up. No one knew how much she had wished for a perfect family. That was why she wanted to compensate for this regret of hers by getting together with Zach In her past life.
However, what he was doing now was already too little, too late in her eyes.
Zach asked, “Do you like these?”
Madelyn remained silent. She rarely brought these things with her when she went out.
The salesperson beside them smiled and said, “Mr. Jardin, you have such good taste. This is the most popular lipstick color we have right now. And this is the last one left. It matches this young lady very well! It’ll look great on her,”
Zach did not know how to use women’s products. It seemed like he was unfamiliar with it as he tried to open the lid a couple of times but failed. Finally, he pinched Madelyn’s cheeks with one hand, holding the lipstick with the other hand and about to apply it to her.
The salesperson was quite puzzled, “Who the hell applies lipstick like this?‘
Madelyn pouted her lips. Her naturally pink lips were already very beautiful even without any lipstick, but Zach, who was extremely possessive and competitive, felt that whatever other people had, Madelyn had to have as well. And whatever others did not have, he would also offer to her.
The salesperson attentively reminded him, “Mr. Jardin, that’s not how you apply lipstick. Should I help you?”
Zach just ignored the salesperson. He then began carefully applying the lipstick on Madelyn’s attractive lips.
He even lowered his head. After a while, the salesperson grabbed a mirror and placed it in front of Madelyn. Zach pinched her chin as if he was admiring his masterpiece.
Madelyn coldly asked, “Are you done looking?”
Zach smiled faintly and turned to the cashier, “Not bad. Get me all the colors. I want them all.” He took out a bank card and paid tens of thousands of dollars without blinking an eye.
When they left the mall, it was already getting dark outside. The golden light shone on the empty streets. A gentle breeze blew into their collars.
Little did they know, someone had captured this scene and sent it to Yvonne.
“Yvonne, if you don’t do something, your man will leave you soon.”
Yvonne was at the Young residence, looking at the photo sent by her close friend. She clutched her phone tightly, wishing she could crush it.
She thought, ‘Madelyn, I don’t care if you’re really dying. I’ll never allow you to take him away from me. He’s mine! 1
Zach bought an apartment in Floral Loft. It was in the bustling part of Ventropolis, less than two miles away from Jardin Corporation,
His apartment was on the top floor, the twenty–fourth floor. It also had a balcony and a swimming pool.
At the door, Zach said, “The password is your birthday. From now on, you’re the lady of this home. Go in and see if you like it.”
Upon hearing his words, Madelyn could not help but find it Ironic, ‘How many homes does he have? How many ladies of the home‘ does he have?‘
She responded, “I just want to go back to Southern Haven Villas. That’s my home.”
