As she does so, she can hear a round of chatters and murmurs ensuing all around her. People's heads keep turning to her direction, drawn to her eye-catching profile and imposing aura. She just has this prepossessing figure that dazzles anyone she comes across with despite the fact that she's only wearing a plain apparel this time.
Little did these onlookers know that what comes with her captivating appearance is her distinguished title as the wife of the prominent owner of the country's largest conglomerate businesses.
"Not that I'll continue to be that person, though..." Cassidy pondered quietly, looking through the glass windows with a frown marring her frame.
