My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 87
When Jared arrived home, Ashlyn was reviewing some documents in the living room.
“What are you reading?” The man loosened his necktie and sat down on the rug in front of the sofa. He crossed his legs slightly as there was no room for him to rest his legs, making him look casual and relaxed.
“I have to perform two surgeries tomorrow and the day after, so I’m making some notes.” Ashlyn made her notes while reading the documents. She looked so gentle in her beige loungewear. All hints of her being a cold person were nowhere to be found.
Her fair cheeks and side profile looked perfect. She looked even more alluring as she wrote her notes with the black pen in hand.
“You’re so hardworking.” There was a slight stench of alcohol on Jared, but it wasn’t strong enough to disgust others.
He struggled a little as he pulled out his phone. After shaking his head to clear his head up, he forced his eyes open and said, “Boss, do you know you’re trending on Twitter again?”
Ashlyn was busy with her work so she didn’t have time to check what was going on Twitter.
She wasn’t the type to frequently check her Twitter account too. So with her eyes still fixed on her book, she replied casually, “What is it?”
“See for yourself.” Jared showed her the contents on his phone.
Ashlyn took a glance at the trending page and cocked an eyebrow. Mrs. Nolan had already divorced Mr. Nolan. “What’s all this frenzy about?”
“Do you want me to remove it from the trending topic?” Jared asked as he lazily swiped through his Twitter. He had gone for a round of drinks with a few rich heirs of Lake City at a famous club. One of the heirs, Mr. Watts, brought a bottle of aged wine from his family’s ancestral collection. However, nobody expected the wine to be so strong.
He was feeling really dizzy but he forced himself to sit in front of Ashlyn.
Ashlyn felt like she didn’t need to know about this insignificant stuff, so she replied indifferently, “Don’t bother.”
As soon as she finished talking, her phone rang.
It was Lucas.
Ashlyn furrowed her brows. It’s already so late, why did he call me instead of going to bed?
Something doesn’t seem right.
Ashlyn muted her phone and tossed it aside before continuing with her notes.
However, the phone’s screen kept on flashing with notifications. Lucas kept calling her non-stop.
“Your ex-husband is looking for you. Boss, can I post something on social media?” Jared acted brazenly under the influence of alcohol and stared at Ashlyn with sparkling eyes.
“That’s up to you. Just post whatever you want. It’s none of my business anyway. Why do you need to ask for my permission if you want to post something? Do I look like a tyrant to you?” Ashlyn was so focused on her notes that she didn’t realize that Jared’s words meant something else. She didn’t notice his guilty yet excited expression too.
“Alright. If you say so.” Jared got up, secretly pleased. Then, he quietly snapped a photo of Ashlyn’s side profile.
The warm light from the crystal lamps shone on the woman and embracing her gracefully. Ashlyn had her hair tied back in a ponytail, but a strand of hair fell loose on her face. It made her look even more like an angel that had stepped out of the light.
At that moment, Ashlyn exuded a gentle aura around her.
She looked especially beautiful when she was flipping through her book with her fair, slender fingers.
It was a heavenly sight even though it was only a photo of her side profile.
Jared uploaded the photo onto his Twitter and wrote a caption that read: Happy to have someone wait up for you late night.
He even acted cute at the end by adding a smiley emoji.
He seldom posted on his Twitter. Normally, he would only post official news of Centennial Healthcare to establish a positive company image.
Jared had very few personal photos posted on his account. Besides the food photos that he posted late at night that made others jealous, a photo like this was extremely personal.
It didn’t stop him from having a large number of fans though.
He wasn’t as famous as the other celebrities, but he was definitely popular.
The photo he posted had suddenly become the center of everyone’s attention.
