Eric was born for the stage Whenever he was on stage, he could move the hearts of many without doing anything.

That evening, Avery drove Wesley to the gathering venue Mike had told her about.

The two got out of the car when they arrived at the hotel.

“Wesley, everyone here tonight is either a friend of mine or a friend of Mike’s, so don’t hold back,” said Avery with a smile. “We are mainly celebrating the fact that James got arrested. It’s something that’s been on my mind for some time now.”

“I know. I heard you mention it before.” Wesley smiled while looking at her. “I can see that you are in an exceptionally good mood today.”

The two went to the event hall that Mike told her to go to. As soon as they entered the hall, the smile faded from Avery’s face.

“What the heck? Why are there so many strangers? Did we walk into the wrong place? But – I can see Mike’s golden hair from here,” she thought.

When Mike spotted Avery, he walked up to her. “Avery, here you are! Welcome, Wesley!”

Avery dragged Mike outside and asked him what happened.

“Well… When I invited Chad, he said that they are having a company gathering tonight in a big event hall. He said that we can just come join them… That way we can save the money for gathering, right?” Mike‘s eyes shone in a calculative manner.

Avery’s eyes filled with anger as she thought, “I‘m in such a good mood, and he thinks that I want to skimp on food?!”

“Relax, Elliot usually doesn‘t show up to gatherings for the Sterling Group,” Mike explained.” Their company has a gathering every fortnight, so he couldn‘t possibly show up every time. According to Chad, Elliot only shows his face during special occasions… and tonight‘s not an occasion, so he won’t be here! I swear it!”

Mike placed his hand on his chest and swore.

Just then, they heard the distinct sound of leather shoes hitting the floor. Avery looked in the direction of the sound and saw Elliot walking toward them. He was dressed in black.

Avery instantly smacked Mike’s hand.

Mike took a deep breath awkward breath and whispered, “What do we do? The people I invited are already inside… I can‘t just ask them to get out.”

Elliot walked toward them. His dark, brooding eyes focused on Avery’s face as he said,” Congratulations.”

Avery scowled.

“… On getting three hundred million,” he added.

Avery lifted an eyebrow. “Oh… Don‘t you usually stay out of company gatherings?”

“I come when I want to. Nothing is fixed,” he said casually, before teasing her, “Are you drinking tonight?”

“I drink when I want to. Nothing is fixed,” she retorted stubbornly.

Elliot pursed his lips and gave her a look, before looking away and stepping into the event hall.

Mike dragged Avery along and followed Elliot closely.

“We are already here. If we leave now, he is going to think that we are afraid of him!” Mike tried to brainwash her by saying, “Not only are we going to eat more, but we are also going to order a few bottles of good wine! He‘s paying, anyway.”

Avery glared at him. “Don‘t you ever feel embarrassed?”

Mike gave her a charming smile. “He is not my ex–husband, so the only one who would feel embarrassed would be you.”

Avery silently decided to never organize a gathering again.

Suddenly, she realized that Wesley was nowhere to be found and looked around. “Where is Wesley?”
