lt;pgt;“Yes.” Edward nodded in reply.
lt;pgt;“Thank you!” Lily thanked liim sincerely. However, this caused Alexander to feel jealous again, “You
only thankliim? What about me?” “I don’t need to be so polite with you!” Before Alexander could speak
further, Lily added,” Hey, you were the one who said that.”
lt;pgt;‘It seems I’ve stepped on my own trap,’ Alexander thought.
lt;pgt;Edward looked at his boss in surprise when he saw Alexander staminering, unable to refute. ‘It seems
that only my boss’s wife can make him feel so helpless.
lt;pgt;“Imight be late today. Call me if you have any problems,” Alexander said while putting on his coat.
lt;pgt;“Okay!” Lily tip-toed to help him adjust his shirt’s collar. She suddenly remembered the upcoming trip,
“Oh right, you mentioned going on vacation earlier. Do you have a destination in mind? Or have you
already decided where to go?” “Not yet. Why?”
lt;pgt;“It’s nothing. Liv has a few recommendations. Since you’re busy and have not decided on a place, why
don’t the girls and I decide it ourselves?” She was traveling with Olivia and Jenny this time and could
decide the destination and itinerary by themselves.
lt;pgt;“Sure.” Alexander nodded in agreement.
lt;pgt;“You’re the best!”

meeting!” She pushed him out of the door and waited until the car drove away before going back into
lt;pgt;Since Alexander had agreed to let the girls decide on the vacation location, all Lily had to do now was
discuss things with Olivia and Jenny. She turned on the television to watch the daily news and called
Olivia, “Are you the one who brought me home yesterday, Liv?” “Oh, you still remember! I thought you
were too drunk to remember.” Olivia teased her.
lt;pgt;Lily did not remember much of yesterday. She needed to reflect on it to avoid drinking so much in the
future. She seldom drank and did not know her alcohol tolerance but had not

lt;pgt;“Of course, You were chattering non-stop and refused to go home. You insisted we continue drinking,
and I couldn’t stop you!” “R-Really?!” Lily gasped in surprise. She was surprised to find out she was
such a lousy drunk.
lt;pgt;“Halaha! Of course, it’s a lie! I’m teasing you!” Olivia laughed out loud and continued,” You’re not a bad
drunk. You just slept and could barely tell me which block you lived in at Imperial Hills. I couldn’t get in
without an access card, but luckily Mr. Russell showed up.”
lt;pgt;Olivia paused for a second and continued, “By the way, I told Jenny that you stayed at the Lake Hills.
Since that’s near Imperial Hills, I managed to fool her. You almost exposed yourself. Remember this,
