To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 19

Chapter 19 Friends?

The three of them fixed their gazes on Alec. Jenny prayed that he would refuse since she really didn’t want to sit together and have a meal with this man.

It would totally affect her mood.

“You decide,” he said. That wasn’t the answer Jenny wanted to hear.

Jenny was speechless.

“Dr. Walter, Alec is fine with it. What about you?” She looked at Jenny smilingly.

Jenny was super reluctant. She shifted her gaze to Gilbert. “What do you think?”

She kept giving Gilbert hints with her eyes, but instead, he said, “I’m okay with anything.”

“Okay with anything? Gilbert, what are you trying to do?” Jenny thought.

Faye and Jenny sat next to each other, while Alec and Gilbert sat across them. Alec was sitting right opposite Jenny, so she could see his face every time she looked up. This made her feel extremely uncomfortable.

“Dr. Walter, is this your boyfriend? He looks like a great guy. No wonder you didn’t want me to introduce anyone to you.” Staring at the posh-looking Gilbert opposite her, Faye felt slightly jealous.

Alec chuckled and smirked. “Mr. Hawthorn is an upstart from Parrington. Of course he is.”

“Mr. Alec, you flatter me. I still have to work harder to catch up with you,” Gilbert laughed, not giving it much thought. Alec’s face fell. Was it Gilbert’s goal to surpass him?

He chuckled to himself.

“You want to surpass Faust Group? Not in a million years,” he thought.

“He’s indeed a good match for Dr. Walter,” Faye said, but she couldn’t help but feel slightly bitter.
