Chapter 12 Can’t Understand It

In the back seat of the car.

Julian leaned back in his chair, he clasped his slender hands on his legs, and lazily shut his eyes.

Sadie sat uptight besides him, unable to relax one bit, with a facial expression filled with anger.

For a while, she kept licking her lips, then said in a mocking tone, "Even the CEO has to come collect debt, is DHG Group about to close down?"

Julian raised his eyes slightly, then let out an "hmm" in a lazy, relaxed tone.

Sadie was speechless, then she tugged at her sleeves with both hands and stared at him angrily, "What exactly do you want!"

His silence and "hmm" just now made her feel incredibly frustrated and irritated.

Julian looked at her from the corner of his eyes, then he leaned over and playfully smirked, "What… do you think, hmm?"

She didn't eat dinner yet, so he wanted to take her to supper, yet she didn’t even appreciate his kind gesture.

"Is Mr. Mccarthy lacking women?" Sadie raised her hand and pressed against his chest, blocking him from getting any closer. "Plenty of women out there are willing to serve you head on."

"I'm lacking a wife." Julian glanced down at her hands casually, then smiled, "Sadie, are you trying to seduce me?"

Sadie blinked, then quickly withdrew her hand; the back of her hand was covered with sweat. "Crazy!"

She must be out of her mind to want to seduce him.

Julian leaned forward further, close enough that he could kiss her lips if he lowered his head. He looked on with interest at her annoyed expression, but his smile eventually faded.

It was dim inside car, but neon lights flooded in from both sides of the road, and they revealed the look of fear on her face.
