Bella was free that same day after Sebastian left, so Sia decided to take her out to eat hot pot.
They went to the restaurant after school and chose a spicy hot pot bottom, with a large assortment of beef, shrimps, and lettuce.
“Eat as much as you want. Bells. We will order more if this isn’t enough. You look like you’d faint from exhaustion shuffling between work and school.” Sia said, adding more beef to Sia’s plate.
“Why do I feel like you want something from me?” Bella narrowed her eyes suspiciously.
“Gasp, how can you think so lowly of me, Bells? You’re my best friend!” Sia gasped feigning hurt, “I might have a… thing I’d like to discuss with you, but that’s after our lunch. Let’s eat first and worry about that later.”
“Your only friend,” Bella deadpanned. “By the way, you haven’t given me feedback about the rabbit outfit I chose for you the other day. Did it work? Was Sebastian excited when he saw you in it, was he unable to take his eyes off you? Tell me you’ve finally done the dirty.” Bella wiggled her brows waiting for some juicy gossip.
“Yeah, his eyes were glued to me all right, but I bet if anything, it’s out of sheer speechlessness. I am very much clean.” Sia sighed dejectedly.
“What, you are still a virgin?” Bella exclaimed, her tone getting serious all of a sudden. “Sia, I think there’s something wrong with either you or Sebastian.”
“Hush! Keep your voice down will you?”
Bella covered her mouth with both hands, finally realizing how loud she was. She tuned down her voice. “You have to do something, you can’t continue like this! Sebastian would be stolen under your watchful eyes by some wench if this continues.”
“That’s actually what I wanted to discuss with you. I think Sebastian is a bit clueless when it comes to sexual activities. Can you help me with something that could show him how it’s done?” Sia mumbled, flushing in embarrassment.
“Worry not, my little lamb. Your mom would take care of this, I will provide you with the best, uncensored learning materials with detailed tutorials from A to Z.” Bella boasted smugly.
“Thanks, Bells! I knew you were the best.”
Sure enough, the next day when they met at school, Bella gave Sia an iPad containing everything the girl
Sia returned home that day and waited for Sebastian’s call at night. She waited and waited some more. but Sebastian still hadn’t called when the clock struck 10pm.
Sia could not wait any longer, she dialed his number at last. The phone rang and rang, it was finally picked at the last second.
“Sebastian, where have you been! It took you so long to pick up the phone.” Sia whined when the line connected
Sebastian was walking down the corridor outside the conference room when he answered the phone. After a long tiring day, he felt some of his accumulated stress reduced at Sia’s voice.
“I’m busy making money to take care of my Kitten.”
“You have enough money to take care of me, do you need that much?”
“But I want to give you the best, Sia.”
Sia smiled at his sweet words, he has successfully shut up her complaints. And he calls her the sweet
“Then did you miss me, Sebastian? I miss you very much.”
She is getting bolder with her words, no longer the shy little girl.
“You have no idea how much I missed you kitten. If everything goes well, I’ll be back tomorrow, okay?” Sebastian said dotingly.
“Really? I look forward to your return. I’ve prepared a surprise for you.”
But before Sebastian could respond, the clicking sound of high heels came from behind him.
“Mr. Sterling, could you pay more attention to this meeting please? This is about our access to country M!” Sia’s hand subconsciously tightened around the phone at the coquettish female voice in the background. “I’m a little busy at the moment, Sia. I’ll see you tomorrow, take care.” Sebastian hung up when he finished speaking, not waiting for Sia’s reply.
Sia glanced at the dead phone in her hand in confusion. He didn’t even explain whose voice was in the background and simply hung up. Most of all, why was the woman speaking to him in such a flirty tone!? Sia tossed and turned around in bed all night. The longer she thought about it, the more she realized that she didn’t know anything about Sebastian. They had been engaged for over a month, yet she didn’t even know where he works. At last, Sia decided to finally confront him when he came back tomorrow.
