“Chris.” Kathleen was embarrassed.

Why did he come too?

“I heard something happened over here. Has it been resolved?” Christopher looked at her with gentle eyes.

“Yes.” Kathleen nodded.

“That’s great.” Christopher flashed a half-smile and said, “If there’s anything else you need, feel free to let me know. I can help you.”

“It’s just something unexpected came up,” explained Kathleen.

Looking at her, Christopher flashed her a smile before turning around and leaving.

Nancy was also looking at Kathleen, her eyes filling with admiration and envy.

Be it, Samuel, the former husband, or Christopher, the fiancé, they were both outstanding men.

I would be satisfied with either of them!

Meanwhile, Kathleen had turned around to prepare the dishes. She spaced out twice during that period.

Christopher’s and Samuel’s appearances were definitely not a coincidence.

However, they might not have expected the other person to be at the scene as well.

Samuel’s purpose was obvious.

Kathleen was not a narcissist, but she could tell the man still had feelings for her.

As for Christopher, she knew he liked her and was currently pursuing her.

Kathleen, unfortunately, did not want either of them.

However, if she were to put the two men together, Samuel was someone from her past.

She had already explained it to Samuel, but the man didn’t understand.

Hence, Kathleen reckoned she could only make things clear through her actions.

An hour later, all of the dishes were served.

Nancy walked over to the table and began introducing the dishes one by one, “The appetizer is a mushroom soup I’ve made. As for the main course, we have almond-coated prawns, black pepper tenderloin roast, lobster, crab-stuffed sole, and prime rib!”

“Did you prepare all these dishes yourself?” asked Samuel in an icy-cold tone.

Nancy was rather a petty person.

She only mentioned the soup was prepared by her and did not mention Kathleen at all.

Hearing Samuel’s question, Nancy grew awkward and said, “I prepared the soup.”

“What about the other dishes?” Samuel questioned indifferently.

“Kathleen was the one who prepared the rest of the dishes,” Nancy explained, albeit bitterly.

She could tell Samuel did that to stand up for Kathleen, but she did not disregard Kathleen intentionally.

Nancy only wanted to leave a good impression in front of the mayor.

Meanwhile, comments began pouring in.

What the hell! Is everyone in this variety show this evil?

If Samuel did not probe further, would Nancy have told everyone Kathleen was the one who prepared all the other dishes?

Why is this show full of b*tches? I’ve already had enough of Kylie. Why did another one have to show up?

I didn’t Nancy was someone like that. It seems I was wrong about her.

Christopher furrowed his brow upon seeing that.

Samuel is only making people turn on Kathleen. What if Nancy gives Kathleen a hard time because of this?

“Why don’t everyone have a taste of the dishes?” suggested Nancy with a tinge of awkwardness in her voice.

“Where’s Kathleen?” Samuel questioned again.

Introducing the dishes and attending to the guests is something the head chef should be doing.

“She’s busy preparing the desserts in the kitchen,” Nancy responded.

Samuel didn’t say another word.

While the other began their meal with the appetizer, he went straight to the main course.

Of course, his actions did not go unnoticed by Nancy, who couldn’t help grumbling internally. It seems that Samuel is still protective of Kathleen, despite the two of them being divorced already.

With that thought in mind, Nancy dared not give Kathleen a hard time.

Samuel tasted the food made by his former wife and began reminiscing the times before their divorce.

Kathleen learned to cook for him, but he had never expressed a hint of gratitude whenever she prepared a table full of food for him.

Gradually, she stopped cooking.

Samuel suddenly felt a pang of pain in his heart.

“Mr. Morris, you seem to enjoy the crab-stuffed sole a lot,” said one of the guests.

Christopher curled his lips. “Yes, I really like it a lot.”

“You can probably have it any other day, isn’t that right, Mr. Morris? I’m sure Ms. Johnson makes them for you often.”

“You’re right. Kathleen always cooks whatever I want to eat.” Happiness was written all over Christopher’s face as he said that.

On the other hand, Samuel’s expression darkened.

Does Kathleen cook whatever he wants to eat? Well, it’s natural since they’re engaged now. There’s not a single dish on this table that is among my favorites. She even made such a troublesome dish like crab-stuffed sole for him. Is she trying to show how much she loves Christopher?

Gloominess shrouded his face at that thought.

When it came to trying the rest of the dishes, Samuel had already lost his appetite.

After the main course, it was time for dessert.

Kathleen came out of the kitchen when it was time to serve the desserts.

Despite working for an entire evening, she still looked energetic instead of dispirited.

John helped Kathleen serve the desserts for everyone.

When the guests removed the lids, they noticed that only Christopher’s dessert was different from the others.

The rest of them had the same dessert.

Of course, Samuel was also included in the majority.

“Oh, it seems Mr. Morris’ dessert is different from ours.” A faint smile spread across the mayor’s face.

Kathleen explained, “I heard you prefer sweet dessert, but Mr. Morris doesn’t like it too sweet, so I made another one for him.”

The mayor chuckled and said, “Of course, of course. I understand.”

“Please, have a taste. This is ice cream I made by infusing Earl Grey tea into the milk,” said Kathleen.

The mayor took the spoon from the table and had a bite of the ice cream, immediately gasping in surprise. “This tastes great. The ice cream is fragrant and sweet. It’s silky smooth and melts in my mouth almost immediately.”

His comment made Kathleen smile. “Yes. I heard you like Earl Grey tea, so I didn’t use coffee for the ice cream and opted for Earl Grey tea instead.”

Nodding, the mayor complimented, “I didn’t expect you to know my preference, Ms. Johnson.”

“I heard it from…” Kathleen paused before continuing, “I heard it by coincidence.”

Samuel’s gaze darkened.

Did she forget all of my preferences? Does she think I will give up if she uses a method like this?

After finishing the dessert, dinner was finally over.

Kathleen and the rest walked to the entrance to send the mayor off.

The mayor got into his car and left, leaving only Samuel and Christopher behind.

“Chris,” Kathleen called out before pulling Christopher aside. “I have something to tell you.”

When Samuel saw that, a cold glint flashed across his eyes.

However, his car had already arrived.

Tyson got out of the car and opened the door for Samuel, who got into the car swiftly.

As soon as the car drove away, Steve and the others let out a sigh of relief.

Kathleen was watching all this from a distance.

She couldn’t help letting out a breath of relief when she saw Samuel had left.

Then, looking at Christopher, Kathleen said, “Chris, please don’t get me wrong. I just don’t want Samuel to pester me anymore. I’ve told him countless times, but he just doesn’t understand. I—”

Before Kathleen could finish her words, Christopher placed a slender finger on her red lips. He smiled as he responded, “You don’t have to explain. Even if you take advantage of me or treat me as a pawn, I’m willing to put up with it for you.”

Kathleen’s ears flushed red when she heard him.

“Don’t worry. I won’t misunderstand,” Christopher reassured once more. “Would you like me to wait for you so we could go home together?”

“There’s no need for that.” Kathleen shook her head and continued, “I have to film the show for fifteen days. During this time, I’ll be staying in the mansion provided by the production team.”

Hearing that, Christopher nodded. “In that case, I’ll go home and watch the live stream.”

He would see her through the live stream.

Kathleen blinked. “Everyone is asleep at night. There’s nothing to watch.”

“But I will still watch it,” Christopher said in a deep voice.

Kathleen was dumbfounded.

“You’re tired. Go back home and rest early.” Christopher lifted his hand and stroked her head gently. “If anything happens, send me a message.”

“Okay.” Kathleen nodded in response before watching Christopher leave.

Then, she turned around and headed back to the restaurant.

In the meantime, Kylie was back.

She entered the restaurant with a limp and was covered in dust.

However, everyone was completely exhausted from the ordeal and slumped on the chairs with barely any energy left.

Kylie’s eyes turned red as her blood boiled. “I’m injured. Don’t you all have anything to say to me?” she snapped.
