Her Billionaire Husband Chapter 814

Chapter 814 Skyler’s Surprise Visit

“We’re just friends,” Shirley replied perfunctorily. She didn’t want to fall out with them. She was swamped with work the entire morning. It wasn’t until 11.00AM that her phone on the table vibrated momentarily. When she took a look, she realized it was a message from Wade. ‘When are you getting off? I’ll pick you up.’

Then, her phone buzzed again as another message appeared on the screen. ‘Thanks for taking care of my mother in the past two days. I’d like to treat you to a meal. I hope you won’t turn me down.’

As Shirley went through the messages, a smile played on her lips. Her fingers flew over the keyboard on the screen as she replied, ‘Why would I turn you down? It’s a free meal, after all. I’m getting off at 11.30AM. See you later.’

She was more than willing to take care of Wade’s mother, and it was the least she could do. All the same, she knew that he had been in a terrible mood, so she thought she could cheer him up by having a meal and a conversation with him.

‘Alright. See you soon,’ Wade replied to her a moment later. ‘Alright.’ Shirley then put down her phone and continued working.

Time seemed to fly when one was busy. Soon, it was time for her to leave the office. Jayden and Shawn came over and asked, “Do you have any plans, Shir?”

“We’re going to have lunch together. Do you want to join us?”

Since they were now aware of Shirley’s relationship with Skyler and Garrick, they were cautious whenever they talked to her—it was to the point where they had started fawning over her. They were worried that if they upset Shirley, she would express her grievances to Skyler, who then might acquire Vincere Games.

“I have some plans, so I won’t be joining you guys.” Shirley turned them down politely. The two of them waved their hands and turned around to leave the office.

Shirley packed up her stuff and put on a white jacket. Then, she picked up her bag and left the building. Following that, she waited for Wade outside the office tower.

A moment later, she was greeted by Skyler before Wade arrived. “What are you looking at?”

Shirley was scrolling through her phone when she heard someone speak to her. She looked up and saw Skyler standing in front of her. Subconsciously, she furrowed her brows. “Why are you here, Young Master Skyler?”

Young Master Skyler?! The smile on Skyler’s face disappeared when he heard the dispassion in her voice. “There’s something I need to tell you—”

“Shir!” Before Skyler could finish his sentence, he was cut off by an enthusiastic voice.

They turned to look at the source of the voice and saw a dapper-looking Wade getting out of his car. There was a bouquet of red roses sprinkled with baby’s-breaths in his hands. The flowers were wrapped in black paper and multiple layers of lace, making the bouquet look delicate.

Wade jogged toward them, and when he caught sight of Skyler, he said, “Hi, Young Master Skyler.”

Just as Skyler was ready to nod in response, he saw Wade looking away and beaming at Shirley. “This is for you. I hope you’ll like the flowers.”

“Thanks.” Shirley could barely contain her excitement as it was her first time receiving flowers from someone. She sniffed at the roses and remarked, “They’re fragrant.”

“I’m glad you like them.” Wade laughed heartily. He had carefully picked out these flowers. Before coming to this place, he was worried that she might not like them. Therefore, when he saw her excitement, he was pleased as well.

On the other hand, Skyler wasn’t sure how he should respond. Do they think I’m invisible or something?!

“I’ve booked a private room at Serril’s Hut. Let’s go,” Wade said, then turned to Skyler. “We’re going to have lunch together, Young Master Skyler. Do you want to join us?”

He didn’t mean to invite Skyler as he thought the other man would turn him down. Much to his surprise, Skyler nodded directly and replied, “Well, I’m feeling a little hungry now. Let’s go.”
