Why, Ethan Knight (1)
What else could Ethan say? So, instead of stopping Alice, he just watched her leave the room.
After she left the room and closed the door, he began contemplating. Am I not good–looking enough?
No, it can’t be; I looked pretty handsome when I checked myself in the bathroom just now. So, am I not
sexy enough? No, that shouldn’t be the case either. I adjusted myself in the bathroom to look my
sexiest. Was I just not seductive enough, then? No way! Didn’t they say that was the most seductive
posture? So why did it end in failure? Why?
Meanwhile, Alice looked back after closing the door behind her. She felt that something was odd about
the man tonight, but she didn’t think much about it; she was so weary that all she wanted to do right
now was sleep. After going back to her room, she fell at once into a deep, dreamless sleep until early
On the contrary, Ethan lay awake in bed, tossing and turning all night until dawn.
The next day, Alice received a text message from Bruce shortly after she got up. Reading the romantic
text message, she almost threw up in disgust. Still, she had to keep on acting. Of course, the focus of
the text message was still to ask her to steal the tender document, to which she merely replied, ‘OK’
Despite promising to do so, she didn’t do anything.
Nevertheless, she went to work at Galerprises as usual.
That night, Bruce called her right away. The moment she answered the phone, he asked in a voice
dripping with tenderness, “Alice, how’s it going? Did you get your hands on the tender document?”
“No, I didn’t,” Alice replied at once. As she didn’t have to pretend over the phone, her face was stony
and grim at this moment.
Bruce suggested, “Alice, how about you make an appointment with Mr. Affleck for me tomorrow? I have
something to discuss with him.” Now that the tender opening was just around the corner, he was really
burning with anxiety.
Alice’s eyes flickered slightly. Should I say he’s too stupid or too clever? “Okay,” she replied
nonetheless. Since this guy came up with such a request, she might as well go along with it. After all, if
she was going to put on a show, she had to pull out all the stops for it.
“That’s great! Let’s make it tomorrow, then. Just make the appointment at Blue Moon Restaurant at
noon tomorrow.” With clear delight in his voice, Bruce set the time and place of the appointment without
caring whether it would put Alice in a tight spot. Apparently, he did use his brains a little, for Blue Moon
Restaurant was owned by him.
Consequently, Alice made an appointment with Mr. Affleck at Blue Moon Restaurant for real.
Mr. Affleck was dumbfounded. He didn’t want to come at all, but Archie ordered him to come over and
play along. Although he didn’t know what he was supposed to play along with, he couldn’t defy Archie’s
orders. Therefore, he sat at the dining table, all confused.
Darting a glance at Alice, who was seated across from him, he got even more confused. What the hell
is going on here? Why would Alice get me to meet with Bruce? Well, it’s reasonable for her to arrange
a meeting between us. Everyone knows that she loves Bruce, after all, so perhaps she wants to do
something for him. But why would Mr. Moreno agree to it?
Just when he was confused, Bruce came in. “Mr. Affleck, let’s not beat around the bush. I got you here
today because I want Galerprises’ tender document on Riverwale. Just name your price, Mr. Affleck,”
he said, negotiating terms explicitly right away.
Mr. Affleck’s eyes blinked rapidly. Is this getting started already? Wait, should I say yes or turn him
down? Mr. Moreno didn’t give me any clear instructions on this before I came! He turned to look at
Alice, who slowly sipped at her tea as though she were oblivious to this. His heart clenched. So, what
the hell’s going on here? Without getting any instructions, he had no choice but to act as he thought fit,
saying, “Sorry, but as a member of Galerprises, I have both a responsibility and an obligation to protect
everything about the company. Please behave yourself, Mr. Yeager.” With that, he stood up and left
After leaving the room, he heaved a secret sigh of relief. It’s probably okay for me to act like this, right?
But what exactly does Mr. Moreno mean?
In the private room, Bruce was visibly surly, stupefied by Mr. Affleck’s outright refusal. Looking at Alice,
who was slowly sipping at her tea, he managed a forced smile while suppressing the anger inside him.
“Alice, seems like I have to depend on you after all,” he said, trying to show as much tenderness as he
could. “Alice, we only have three days left before the tender opening, so we can’t afford to tarry. You’ve
got to get hold of the tender document as soon as possible.” He got some inside information that
Galerprises’ tender document was the best, which was why he wanted to take advantage of it.
At the same time, Caleb came to Ethan after getting the news of what had happened. He reported, “Mr.
Knight, Young Madam Knight is having an appointment with Henry Affleck, the project manager of
Galerprises-” He paused for a moment. After studying Ethan’s expression for a moment, he added, “At
the same time, she’s also having an appointment with… Bruce Yeager.”
Ethan’s hands froze. He raised his eyes, which were gloomy. Is she really going to help Bruce Yeager?
Why? What on earth is she trying to do? I don’t believe she really wants to marry him. Smart as Little
Fox is, there’s no way she can’t tell that Bruce is trying to use her. So, what exactly is the purpose of
her playing along with Bruce like this?
He had still yet to find out what was going on with her sudden disappearance several days ago. He
knew that she was hiding something from him and wouldn’t tell him about it, so he had to uncover it by
himself. Since it was only through the things she did that he could truly find out what was wrong, he
didn’t stop her from helping Bruce, nor did he even ask her about it. But now that she was helping
Bruce for real, he felt really uncomfortable about it, even if he knew she might have other reasons for
His eyes narrowed slightly. Suddenly, he asked, “Is Archie Moreno personally in charge of the case?”
Knowing that Alice was working at Galerprises, he looked into the company and found out that it was
registered under Archie’s name. It was only recently registered, but it was doing very well.
Caleb knew who Archie was. Even though they had rarely met before, he had some understanding of
the latter after the past few days of investigation.
“Yes, he is,” replied Caleb immediately.
Ethan’s eyes stared ahead thoughtfully. After pondering for a moment, he replied, “Never mind.” He
now understood what Archie was capable of. The case was under Archie’s charge, so what was Bruce
trying to do under Archie’s very nose? The matter probably wouldn’t be simple. As for Alice, he would
like to see what on earth she was trying to do. Besides wanting to know what she had up her sleeve,
he also wanted to understand her better through the things she did. As for whether she would get into
trouble… no matter what kind of trouble she got into, he would always be there for her!
