Chapter 44 ”
Regarding Prince Simon Gray, I believe i n you. Just
say the word and I’ll marry you right away,” he spoke,
voice powered with assurance and determination.
Charmine felt her heart clenched as warmth began to
spread across her chest.
Believe in her?
Everyone wanted her dead, but this pervert said he
‘believed in her? The thought of their few-minutesago
kiss resurfaced in her mind, and her heart
thrummed against her chest.
`Useless heart, why are you beating so fast? He’s just
attracted to your appearance and wants to get in your
pants! Man up and don’t fall for this kind of
irresponsible and wild guy!’ Charmine gave herself a
pep-talk as she slapped her chest, right where her
heart was nestled.
Ding! Charmine’s phone lit up.
Once she picked up the phone, she heard Eric’s voice
as he spoke, “Due to the upcoming press conference
Amelia is hosting, Chanel had given out the notice t o
postpone today’s shooting and is considering whether
to terminate your contract or not, according to the
situation after the press conference. Besides that, a
new batch of diamonds has arrived at Ohly. These are
incredibly rare and hard t o find; you have to check
this batch personally.”
“Now? You sure?”
Even an international brand like Chanel postponed
the shooting because of Amelia’s press; it was only
natural that airhead keyboard warriors would come
for her. If she left the villa, it was likely that she
would come home horizontally instead of vertically.
Though, Eric reassured, “Don’t worry. The Bailey
Corporation had passed on the order that no media
can cover or disturb your private life; they’ll be shut
down if they did. It should be fine if you lay-low when
outside. This batch of diamonds is very important, so
carefully inspect them to ensure no one tampered
These were limited diamonds, after all. Even if only
one was tampered with, a significant loss would still
be incurred. 111
“Alright, I’ll go,” Charmine answered. It could be
troublesome at times to have lots of money.
“Be careful,” Eric warned before he hung up the call.
Charmine walked into her room and started looking
for plain-looking clothes; clothes that she could wear
to go incognito. She eventually settled on a black
sports top and pants before wearing a mask and cap.
Only her eyes were visible at this point.
When she made sure she was unrecognizable with
her outlook, she left the villa and took a taxi to Ohly.
Ohly was a jewelry store that only sold wedding rings.
It did not matter who was purchasing; each person
could only buy one ring with his or her identity card.
Nobody could buy a second one, however much they
were willing to pay for. Also, Ohly only had one shop
in each of the 34 cities nationwide, which stayed true
to its `one and only’ image.
Upon arriving at the shop, she saw four people inside.
Of all the people in the world, they just had to be Joey
Young, Tiffany Jordan, Amelia Jordan, and Julian
Cabell in his suit.
Julian was seen handing over a ring to Tiffany.
“Tiffany, do you like this design?” he spoke, voice
gentle like a breeze.
Charmine wanted to throw up out of disgust just by
listening to his voice. She turned to leave, but Tiffany
caught her at the corner of her eye. She knew it was
her from just one look. “The lady by the door, please
wait,” Tiffany called out.
What? Wait up? Who was she to call someone to wait
Charmine’s lips curled into a smirk, her long legs
continued marching away from the store.
Tiffany initially thought the physique resembled
Charmine, but as she studied the woman’s walk, she
was more sure of her guess. “That seems like
Charmine,” Tiffany spoke again. “Why is she leaving
after seeing us?”
“Charmine?” Amelia’s ears perked up. She hastily
walked toward Charmine and blocked her from
“Charmine Jordan! Didn’t you hear someone asking
you to stay? Are you deaf?! “
