Chapter 30 He’s Mine
“Why are you being so pretentious? Weren’t you willing to risk your life over money? I can’t believe you actually downed five glasses of whiskey for 150 thousand dollars each. You’re such a greedy woman, Jessica.” Janice stared at Jessica in disdain, her words full of mockery.
“Aren’t you working at Cerulean for the money, too?” It was the first time Jessica confronted her.
“Oh, please. I’m different from you. I’m a university student, working part-time here. I earned my money through hard work. It’s legal money. I’m not like you, who’s willing to do anything despicable just for it. We’re completely different; we’re from a different hierarchy.”
“Fine. As long as you’re happy with that.” Jessica did not have the time to listen to her nonsense. Seeing Janice had put down her hand that was blocking her path, Jessica quickly marched forward.
“Hold it right there. What gives you the right to behave so pretentiously in front of me when you were even willing to strip naked just for money?” Janice caught Jessica’s hand. “A university student like me is obviously better than a bargirl. Shouldn’t she feel ashamed of herself in my presence?” Janice wondered to herself.
“Janice, I’m not being pretentious. Let me go. I don’t want to have anything to do with you.” Jessica really did not want to deal with people like Janice. Dealing with smart people made her calm, while despicable people only brought her trouble.

A mocking look flashed past Jessica’s eyes before she turned around to leave.
There was no need for her to be mad at Janice. In fact, Jessica would not be bothered about such an idiot even when she was a top socialite five years ago.
Standing in a distance was Alfred, who originally wanted to go over to talk to Jessica. Coincidentally, he had witnessed the entire incident and even heard Janice’s words.
He scoffed inwardly, thinking, “I’m hers? That’s interesting. Since when did I become hers?”
“Mr. Whiteburn, we’ve looked into it. That’s the woman who told Mr. Walkden about Ms. Jackson being able to drink five glasses of whiskey at one go.” The person beside him sounded confident.
