Eye-catching due to his stunningly symmetrical profile, l.u.s.trous light brown hair, deep ocean blue eyes, and toned muscular build. Though he possesses the aura of imposing prominence, he still carries the air of a debonair and amicable gentleman.
"Why isn't he answering?"
As of this moment, Edward is on his phone, trying to reach Adrian. The birthday party is about to start in just a couple of hours, but he still can't get in contact with him.
His brother sent a text message earlier, telling him that their car was stuck in the middle of a service road. It turned out that the reason why he suddenly went missing was because he returned to his mansion to escort his wife.
Edward was taken aback by that at first, considering that Adrian never paid any extra attention to Cassidy like this before. In fact, the married couple usually goes out in separate cars. But then, he recalled that his wife had just gotten into an accident recently, which was probably why he decided to do what he did.

"Wait, what?!" Sophie then suddenly cut him, reacting completely nonplussed.
The two of them turn to look at her in surprise, not expecting her somewhat exaggerated response. It's not everyday they find this elegant and demure lady lose her composure as well as her perfect poise.
Then again, the only thing that will ever stir her up this much is her target of affection, though they're not really aware of that.
As soon as Sophie saw Gertrude's displeased reaction to her shrill, she hastily collected her bearings once more. She couldn't afford straying from the public's angelic imag
