[No problem! I can handle my drink!]

[I have a pretty high tolerance, too!]

[It’s all of us against Elliot Foster. We’ve got this!]

Mike broke into a grin as he read the enthusiastic messages in the text chain.

Why was he gracious enough to invite Elliot to the party?

This was his true motive.

Picking on Avery meant picking on him.

There was not much Mike could do to defeat Elliot but getting him blackout drunk was right up his alley!

That night, Rosalie asked Elliot to bring Zoe over to the old mansion for dinner.

Dinner began once the two of them arrived.

“You should visit more often when you have the time, Dr. Sanford,” Rosalie said with a smile. “Elliot is usually too busy to spend time with you.”

Zoe nodded and said, “Alright. I’ll come by more often as long as you don’t find me bothersome.”

“Why would I? I like how outstanding you are!”

After a pleasant dinner, Rosalie called Elliot over to her room for a private conversation.

“Dr. Sanford seems like a good match for you, Elliot. You’re not getting any younger. Why don’t you get engaged?” Rosalie said.

“I won’t think about marriage until Shea’s completely cured,” Elliot said as he searched for an excuse.

“Shea’s illness and your marriage have nothing to do with each other!”

“I hope Shea can be there at my wedding.”

“She’ll be there if you get married now too! Didn’t you say her condition improved after the surgery?”

Elliot shook his head.

“I’m asking you to get engaged first, not get married. Dr. Sanford gave up her high-paying job for you. You should show her some gratitude,” Rosalie said, then asked, “What are you thinking?”

“I’m not getting engaged,” Elliot said, then added, “I don’t love her. I’ll break up with her the moment I find another doctor who can help Shea. You’re a woman, Mom. You should know that I’d just be dragging her down by getting engaged to or marrying her.”

The expression on Rosalie’s face turned rigid.

“Do you think I had a deep, loving relationship with your father? Plenty of couples appear happy but are far apart under the surface. Even so, their marriages can last a lifetime.”

“Just because others can do that, doesn’t mean that’s what I want for myself,” Elliot said.

“You’re too stubborn! Since you’re so adamant, I won’t pester you any further,” Rosalie said bitterly, then changed the subject and said, “Your father’s d***h anniversary is coming up next month.”

Elliot pursed his lips, then turned away and said, “I know. I’m leaving if there’s nothing else.”

“Think about things with Dr. Sanford again, Elliot!”

Once he was out of the room, Elliot told Zoe he had to leave.

Zoe walked him out, then said, “I’ll leave after a little bit.”

Elliot nodded in response.

Half an hour later, Rosalie retired to her bedroom for the night.

Cole finally found the chance to speak with Zoe in private.

“I looked into it, Dr. Sanford. My uncle’s attending Avery’s birthday party this Saturday,” Cole said, explaining his plan to Zoe. “I’m sure he’ll drink at the party. You should go fetch him once he’s drunk. If he’s blacked out, you can do whatever you want with him. If he’s not quite drunk enough, all you have to do is give him this…”

Cole pulled out a tiny bottle and handed it over to Zoe.

“As long as he drinks this, he’ll transform from a perfect gentleman into a beast in the sack!”

Zoe was rendered speechless.

It was shameless, but she had no other choice.

She took the bottle, then mocked him coldly, “You sure are an expert at cheap tricks like this.”

Cole’s face flushed with embarrassment.

“You’re the one who asked me to think of something, Dr. Sanford. When it comes to my uncle, if we didn’t resort to cheap tricks, he would never sleep with you!”

“Shut up! I know the one he loves is Avery Tate! So what? I’m his girlfriend now!” Zoe said haughtily. “Once I’ve slept with him, I’ll make him marry me!”
