“Did I disturb you? I’ll try to keep my voice down.” Startled, Janet clamped her mouth with her hand and looked at him apologetically.

Ethan shook his head and walked to her bed. Then, he slumped onto it and inhaled her sweet fragrance.

Propping his head on his arm, Ethan closed his eyes. “What happened? Why are you so happy?” he asked casually.

“Don’t lie on my bed, Ethan.” Janet’s cheeks puffed as she tried to pull his arm.

He was tall and heavy. Finally, she gave up and sat on the chair beside the desk.

“I met a wealthy and generous client who asked me to design for him. I just submitted my draft and got paid.”

Ethan opened his eyes and saw Janet grinning with joy. “Then, you don’t have to go for the d**g trial. That’s good.”

Janet smiled. She rested her chin on the palm of her hand and poked the lamp on the desk with one finger. “Why don’t you ask me how much I’ve earned?”

“It’s all your money and is none of my business. I only wish for you not to go for the d**g trial.” Ethan smiled at her.

Janet didn’t expect him to care so much about her.

A smile tugged at the corners of her lips as she leaned on the desk.

The next day, after work, Janet went to the hospital to pay Hannah’s medical fee. She still had three thousand dollars left in her bank account even after that.

When she got home, Janet wondered if she could take Ethan out for dinner. She would still earn in the future. Moreover, she would get her salary in two weeks.

“Ethan, let’s go out for dinner tonight. It’s my treat! I’m going to buy you a big sumptuous meal,” Janet said, raising her wallet. She looked like she had just won the lottery.

Ethan was lying on the sofa. He looked at her tattered wallet and stood up. “Okay, I know a nice place.”

When they arrived at the door of a magnificent restaurant, Janet stiffened. She pursed her lips and pulled Ethan’s arm, who was just about to enter the restaurant. Her eyes widened in horror. “Ethan, this is the best restaurant in the city.”

The restaurant belonged to the Larson Group and was one of the most famous restaurants in the city. It would cost all her savings to eat here.

“Didn’t you want to treat me to a big dinner?” Ethan arched his brows, pretending to be confused.

Janet gritted her teeth and forced a smile. “Yeah. Nothing. Let’s go inside.”

When Janet checked the menu, she felt she couldn’t afford any of the dishes here. Her heart sank as she skimmed through the menu card.

Not even one dish was affordable here. Biting her lower lip, Janet continued to look at the menu.

“Miss, could you please hurry up? We still have to serve other guests,” one of the waiters said impatiently, casting a disdainful look at her.

Two waitresses nearby cast a scornful look at Janet. “They shouldn’t have come here if they can’t afford it,” one of them whispered to the other.

“I haven’t seen them before. They don’t look like regular customers. They’ve been looking at the menu for ten minutes. Don’t they feel ashamed?”
