The man was also stunned. Apparently, he also recognized her.
Compared to the man she had seen in the hospital, the man she saw today looked bookish and closed-off. However, she knew well about his icy features.
She still remembered the man's name, Jacob Nelson.
Jacob slowly walked towards her. Just as he was about to brush past her, a playful smile threaded across the corner of her lips. "Dr. Jacob," she greeted. "Long time no see."
It was obviously not a long time since they just met last night.
He stopped. "I don't know you."
Cherry didn't get angry. Instead, she hiked up her dress slightly to show him her milky things. The red spots were still visible, but they were already fading because of the ointment.
"I have no need of that," he said bluntly.
Her mind went blank for a while. It took her a few minutes to realize what he had taken her for.
"I'm not that kind of person–"
The door behind her opened.
The drunken chief editor stumbled out and held her in his arms. His eyes wandered over her figure. "Have you finish the phone call?" he drawled. "Let's talk, Miss Cherry. Otherwise, how could we solve the problem that you've brought up."
The old man was already approaching fifty years old. He had a very visible beer belly, and his hairline was already receding. As his arms wrapped around the young woman, anyone would misunderstand their relationship.
Understanding flashed in his eyes. Jacob waved his hand. "Go ahead with your business," he stated.
It wasn't as if he needed this type of woman.
His lips curled as he walked into the room next to theirs.
However, the old man didn't seem to notice. Instead, he rubbed his hand over her smooth shoulder.
"Let's go inside first." Knowing that she had no other choice, she forced a smile into her face.
When they entered the room, the grievance in her eyes slowly dissipated upon looking at the man before her.
She placed a card in front of him.
He raised his eyebrows as his hand wandered around his enlarged stomach. "I can see how much your company dotes on the young star, but you should know how troublesome he could be with the press." He snorted and waved his hand. "If I withdraw the news, would you join me for–"
"Jonny only gave me ten minutes. You know how willful he could be." Cherry sighed dejectedly and placed her hands on her knees, making sure to avoid brushing up against him. "I may not be free tonight, but I'm a hundred percent sure you'll appreciate an exclusive interview for the promotion of Jonny's new movie more."
The chief editor cocked up an eyebrow. His eyes glinted in interest. "Exclusive?"
