To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 21

Chapter 21 Who’s That Woman?

The following night.

The charity dinner was held at the Majestic Hotel. It was organized by the top magazine in Parrington, BQ Magazine. When Alec arrived, the hotel entrance was surrounded by all sorts of paparazzi and reporters as he got off the car.

“BQ Magazine is so privileged to get Alec Faust to come!” someone exclaimed. After all, everyone knew that Alec had not always been a fan of this kind of event.

“I know, right? Too bad we can’t go in and check it out. The charity dinner tonight must be interesting.” another person said pitifully.

“Who’s that woman beside him? Could she be Alec’s girlfriend?” Some people noticed that Alec didn’t attend alone. He brought along a plus-one, and many were surprised about this.

Upon hearing the news, everybody else only noticed Faye standing next to Alec. It wasn’t that they purposely ignored her. It was just that Faye was too ordinary-looking, so she didn’t manage to capture their attention at first. Unfortunately, Faye didn’t know the truth. Standing beside Alec, she enjoyed receiving all their envious looks. She was utterly satisfied.

“You shouldn’t have come tonight,” Alec said while walking toward the dining hall. “You haven’t fully recovered. You should be resting more at home.”

“I’m fine, Alec. It’s too boring resting at home every day. Accompanying you here for this dinner will help me relax.” She flashed a smile at Alec, but it didn’t feel sincere.

If she hadn’t attended this event, there would surely be tons of women in Parrington who would find a way to seduce Alec. She had to come and keep an eye on him to eliminate all competition.

The two of them had just arrived at the entrance when Mr. Nelson, the editor-in-chief for BQ Magazine, rushed over after hearing the news. “Mr. Alec, I didn’t expect you to come. Thank you for gracing us with your presence.”

He never expected him to appear when he first sent Alec the invitation. Who knew The scale of this event had now been increased ten times more. As the main organizer, Mr. Nelson was, of course, very pleased.
