Chapter 28 

If you don’t buy it, just wait for the call 

Sophia overheard their chat and strolled up. Mr. Hall, did you seriously see our car on the side of the road?” 


Mia, Mr. Hall isn’t pulling your leg. Let’s grab a ride with him. It’s rush hour now, so if we don’t go with him, when the hell would we get home?Sophia wanted to hop into Brandon’s car, and this was a golden opportunity for her

Go ahead if you want.Mia wasn’t interested

Brandon eyed Mia outside the car, somewhat helpless. He thought that she sure was one headstrong 


Ring, ring, ring!A call came on Mia’s phone

Miss Smith, sorry to tell you that the car died by the roadside, so we can’t swing by to get you and Sophia for the time being

But I contacted your family, and I guess that the backup car is on its way to grab you guys,the driver explained

How long before that car shows up?Mia inquired

It’s slow going right now, so at least 40 minutes.” 

Mia let out a sigh on hearing that. Guess we’ll get back on our own. Tell the other car to head back.” 

Sure thing.” 

After hanging up, Mia shot a glance at Brandon. You were right. The car’s officially toast.” 

So are you going to take the ride or wait?Brandon raised an eyebrow at Mia

Looks like I’m imposing on Mr. Hall.Mia opened the car door and hopped in, with Sophia quickly sliding into the front seat

Inside the car, Brandon said, Heard you got into a scuffle with Mr. Brown’s grandson on day one at school?” 

Seems like you’re in the know. You got the whole school dossier?Mia’s tone hinted that he might be keeping tabs on her

You are my fiancée, so of course, I’ve gotta watch out for you. So, I need the know about what you’re up to,he replied

No need for that. I can fend for myself. Mr. Hall’s running a marathon schedule; no need for him to sweat the small stuff.Mia politely declined

In my book, your safety isn’t small stuff. So, it’s a must.He locked gazes with her

The banter kept coming, a standoff between two equally hardheaded people

Mia figured there was no sense in hashing it out with him. If he wanted to play bodyguard, let him. She didn’t need it, though

Miss Smith, there’s an art show coming up. Wanna check it out with me?Brandon extended her an invitation

No time.Mia shot it down without missing a beat. Art shows weren’t her 

I haven’t even mentioned the day yet. How do you know you’re booked?” 

r scene


No matter what day it is, I’m booked solid.” 

Did you forget that our grandpas set us up! They’re banking on us building some rapport. I’m 

making time to hang out with you. If you’re not up for it, then talk to your grandpa.Brandon laid out the tacts, a bit forced himself

Hearing what he said, Mia was caught off guard for a minute. She’d met her grandpa once. How was She supposed to roll up and lay that on him

Don’t worry about it. Mr. Hall. Mia just got back to the Wilson residence. She’s not interested in this crowd. If you’re cool with it, I can go along with Mia

Considering that I go to exhibits a lot, I can help Mia navigate. Otherwise, her first time at one of these gigs, she might feel lost.” Sophia had a grin plastered on her face, looking like she cared but was really just playing down to Mia

Never mind that. I’m practically the exhibition whiz of the Smith family. I’ve orchestrated more exhibits than you’ve probably laid eyes on. If you’re puzzled about anything, feel free to hit me up.” Mia shot back

My bad. I totally forgot about your background.Sophia seemed to apologize but couldn’t resist taking another jab at Mia’s roots

Brandon brushed off Sophia’s comment and turned to Mia to ask, So, does that mean you’re down to go to the exhibition?” 

Mia, caught up in sparring with Sophia, had kind of forgotten about Brandon. She sighed and said


Soon enough. Brandon’s fancy car pulled up at the entrance of the Wilson residence. Mia hopped out first, and Brandon rolled down the car window, saying. T’ll swing by to get you on the day of the exhibition.” 

Mia waved without a backward glance and strolled straight into the estate. Sophia watched as Brandon’s car peeled away

Spotting Mia’s swift return and checking the time. Lily asked in surprise, Mia, how’d you get back so quickly?” 

Brandon gave us a ride. Mia stated bluntly, ensuring that Lily got the straight scoop instead of a twisted version from Sophia

Brandon? Did he make a special trip to pick you up?Lily couldn’t help but be astonished, adding a dash of gossip to her reaction

Nah, he just happened to be passing by. Mia didn’t want Lily to jump to conclusions. She especially didn’t want her overthinking things

Passing by: The school and his company are in opposite directions. How did he coincidentally come. by when you got out of school?Lily wasn’t buying Mia’s explanation. She figured that Brandon had purposefully come to get her

Mom, please don’t play the guessing game. It really was just a fluke,Mia explained with a hint of helplessness

Right then. Sophia sauntered in from outside. Lily saw her and asked, Sophia, did you come back with Mia in Brandon’s car?” 

Yeah, what’s going on. Mom?Sophia was oblivious to their earlier exchange

“I am asking if Brandon specifically went to the school to pick up Mia.” Lily aimed to extract the truth from Sophia

Sophia glanced at Mia and said. Mom, who told you that? Mr. Hall saw our car on the side of the road- out when he passed by, so he generously gave us a lift back.” 


Chapter 28 

Is that true?Lily scrutinized Sophia, wondering if she’d let her imagination run wild

Yeah. If you doubt it, ask Mia. Right, Mia?Sophia guessed that Mia probably hadn’t spilled the 


Lily turned to Mia, who nodded. It was the first time they’d synced up on an account of events

I guess I was overthinking it. You two go do whatever you need to do, Lily said, heading toward the 


At that moment, Simba’s voice came from behind, asking, What’s going on here?” 

Dad, you’re back from work?” Sophia hurried over to Simba, relieving him of his briefcase

He looked at her and inquired, How was school today?” 

Fine. I heard that Mia’s homeroom teacher got stuck in a chair. Word is, Mia pulled a switcheroo with the teacher’s chair,Sophia said, grinning and glancing at Mia

What? Mia did that?Simba’s face turned serious upon hearing this news. It was one wave of trouble after another
