lt;pgt;They were silent for a moment as their minds were filled with thoughts. However, after a while, Frank
started to throw a tantrum. He looked annoyed and proceeded to wind down the window and threw his
cigarette bud out.
lt;pgt;Melanie stole a glance at him but did not dare speak. Instead, she concentrated on driving. “Why didn‘t
you tell me that woman knew kickboxing?” he gritted his teeth in anger as he questioned Melanie,
lt;pgt;She looked at him in confusion, but when she met his menacing gaze, she was surprised and almost
lost control of her steering, “I don‘t understand what you‘re saying. Who? Who knows kickboxing?”
lt;pgt;His question made no sense at all.
lt;pgt;“Lily Christian!” He would never be able to forget this name after what had happened. Never in his life
had he been beaten up by a woman! It was so humiliating!
lt;pgt;Frank thought he was pretty good with women. If he promised them something in return, they would
always willingly throw themselves at him. It was probably because the benefit was not attractive
enough if it did not work. He would just have to offer them more.
lt;pgt;However, Lily was difficult. He had already told her he would make her the champion of this year‘s
perfume competition and provide her with connections and resources, yet she was not interested. She
even dared to hurt him. Frank was furious! Melanie froze for a moment before asking, “Who? Lily?” She
thought she had misheard things. Maybe there was a misunderstanding, “You‘re saying that Lily knows
kickboxing? Which kind?”
lt;pgt;“How would I know? Weren‘t you friends in college? You‘d know what kind of self–defense she
practices!” Frank remarked angrily. Melanie was in shock as she realized what Frank was getting at. Helt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;claimed that Lily was a fighter, but how could that be? Melanie had known her for a long time but had
never seen her fight. Heck, she had never even seen her arguing with anyone. Melanie swallowed hard
and licked her lips, trying to clarify, “You‘re saying that Lily, the Lily I know, who I‘d worked with, knows
boxing? Like, she fights well? She was the one...” Her gaze shifted to his fractured arm, and she had to
ensure, “Your arms, she was the one who did this?”
lt;pgt;She spoke to him slowly as if speaking to a child. Frank was annoyed and impatient, “Do you think my
language ability is so bad that my description wasn‘t clear?” Sensing his displeasure, Melanie quickly
explained, “No, no, your descriptions were perfect! It‘s just that I still find it unbelievable. How could I
not have known that she was skilled in fighting?”
lt;pgt;“You didn‘t know?” He asked suspiciously. Melanie raised her hand to swear that she did not know
beforehand, “I swear, I didn‘t! I‘ve known her for many years, but I‘ve never seen her fight. Heck, she
couldn‘t even win in a relay competition. I‘m sorry, Frank. I still find it difficult to believe. Are you sure
you met the right Lily?”lt;/pgt;
