A contract of lovers?
Corners of Payton’s eyes twitched when he saw the four words on the paper. Did she read too many novels and had learned how to draw
Payton continued reading--
Party A: Juliet
Party B: Payton
The following are the rules that must be honored by the two parties while pretending to be lovers:
Rule 1: The relationship is fake, and no true feelings are allowed.
Rule 2: Apart from having physical contact during the public display of affection, the two must keep a distance when in privacy.
Rule 3: The date of termination of this contract shall be determined by Party A.
After reading it, Payton laughed out loud. He looked up at the person opposite him and said, “Juliet, why do I think this is bullshit?"
Juliet raised her eyebrows, "What do you mean?"
Payton slapped the contract heavily on the table, then put his elbows on the table, crossed his fingers and raised them to his mouth. He looked at her with a half-smile. "Do you think we can fake it when we pretend to be lovers?"
Juliet did not answer.
Payton answered for her. "Impossible, because you're not my type."
Juliet's eyes flashed.
"Of course, I don't rule out the possibility that you like me.” Payton shrugged. "However, it takes two to tango."
Payton did not notice that Juliet's eyes flashed with a trace of sadness after he said those words.
He continued, “I'm okay with the second rule, as for the third rule ... I have objections."
Juliet looked at him with a serious gaze and did not speak, because she knew that he would explain his reasons.
"I think ... the date of termination should be decided by me because I am the passive one, and I want to have the initiative."
What he meant by that was...
"Will you help me?” Juliet asked tentatively.
Payton smiled. "No, I'm just analyzing the contract."
