Chapter 292 Meet My Boyfriend
“I heard that Lucian has been getting a little chummy with another woman recently. It seems like they’re planning to get engaged.”
Yara kept her gaze fixed on Calista as she spoke to observe how her friend would react.

“But those are just rumors I heard. I don’t have all the details. You should go ask him yourself if you to know. No one except the people involved would know what’s going on.”
Truth be told, Yara hadn’t only heard about it; she had also seen Lucian with that woman. However, they didn’t appear to be intimate at the time. So, she didn’t think too much of it.
But in the last two days, news of Lucian’s impending union had spread like wildfire in the community.
They had kept such a high profile that everyone knew about it.
Yara didn’t want to see Calista being deceived. After all, that man had acted as if he wouldn’t
anyone else but her a mere week ago.
Very few women could resist the charms of a man as outstanding as Lucian even if he were known to be
a playboy. Yara pointed upstairs.
“They’re in the private room upstairs right now. If you want to ask about it, I can go with you.”
Calista shifted into a more casual posture. But the seats in the tea room were all solid wood. It was
uncomfortable no matter how she sat.

“And here I was wondering when you picked up a liking for tea drinking. He’s single. He’s free to go
dates and get hitched.”
Yara seemed relieved to hear that.
“You’re right. Why should you care about a scumbag like that? I hope a playboy like him meets his match. They can keep each other in check and spend the rest of their lives in misery.”
She downed the tea in her cup with a single gulp and pulled Calista to her feet.
“Let’s go get milk tea instead. These chairs are making my bones ache.”
Once they left the room, Calista said, “I need to go to the restroom.”

Do you want me to come with you? Yara asked,
Calista gave Yara her purse and coat.
“It’s fine. I’m not going to run into them. Who comes to a tea house and keeps the door open while
Lucian was someone who constantly had the media at his tail. He valued his privacy. If there were talks of a marriage, it was likely the woman in question came from a decent background.
The second floor was far more extravagant than the first. Every inch of the place bled with luxury. Taking a left turn after ascending the steps would take her to the washroom.
Calista had just stepped out of the cubicle when the one next to her opened. She hadn’t paid much attention to who the woman was until a familiar voice prompted her to look up.
‘Claude! What a coincidence. Here for tea?”
It was Teresa. She had been visiting the museum in recent days.
Her enthusiasm and curiosity about the field of conservators had her asking Calista many questions
about it. The two of them had become somewhat acquainted. Calista nodded.
Teresa seemed like an aloof woman at first glance. But, she was a warm person once people got to know her. A good example was what was happening right now. She couldn’t help but hold Calista’s hand.
“This is such a pleasant surprise. You should come join us in our private room. I’ll make you some tea.

but despite growing up abroad, I’m quite the expert when it comes to brewing tea.”
They weren’t that familiar with one another. However, just the fact that Yara was waiting
downstairs made it impossible for her to accept the invitation.
“Maybe next time. My friend is waiting for me downstairs,” Calista declined.
“I’ll just be one cup. I can introduce you to my boyfriend too,” Teresa said.
She inched close to Calista and began to brag in an innocuous way.
“My boyfriend had quite the background in Capeton. If you encounter any problems, you can go to him for
Calista was rendered speechless. Do people still flaunt their connections like this In this day and age? She certainly had a heart of gold!
But even so, Calista wasn’t interested. She had always relied on herself tather than on outside help
She hadn’t thought about seeking help but Lucian. So, there was no reason for her to seek assistance from Teresa’s boyfriend.
However, she underestimated Teresa’s enthusiasm and strength. The private room was only a short

Wow. “Quite the background” was certainly an understatement. Who else could compare to him? Teresa’s boyfriend was none other than the scumbag, Lucian. But that came as no surprise.

they were undoubtedly wealthy.
“I ran into my heroine and invited her to join us. You don’t mind, do you?”
There was a girlish charm to her words. Calista thought back to Yara’s words. Lucian had been getting
close to a woman and was considering marriage.
Yara wasn’t the type to believe rumors. If she brought it up, it meant that she had bore witness to it
happening or had evidence.
Lucian hadn’t seen Calista in a week. He had been on a short business trip and was busy negotiating a
collaboration with the Jacquez family.
Jean had urgent matters to attend to and left back to Apthon. So, he entrusted the negotiations to Vivian.
The progress was taking much longer than expected.
However, Lucian had no intention of collaborating with the Jacquez family. Compared to Jean, Vivian.

He reached out toward Calista and was just about to speak when Teresa dragged her in. Calista ended up in the corner farthest from him which she wasn’t opposed to,
The man pursed his lips in displeasure. The days of continuous work, lack of sleep, and having to deal with Vivian had already left him irritable.

Teresa sat across from Lucian and began brewing tea with elegant movements. Slender hands poured crystal clear tea into the tea cups.
She motioned, “Give it a try.”
Calista took a sip. There was a mellow fragrance to the tea but what coated her tongue was a strong flavor. It certainly lived up to Teresa’s narcissism.
Lucian also took a sip as Teresa watched him with bright eyes.
“What do you think?”
The man set down the teacup.
“I don’t usually drink this. I can’t tell the difference.”
“What kind of tea do you usually drink then?”
Calista wanted to leave but it didn’t feel polite to interrupt. So, she decided to stay until the pair were done with the topic. She couldn’t comprehend how the rich went about navigating their love lives.
“Tea with boiling water,” Lucian said.
Both Teresa and Calista were both rendered speechless. How did he get himself a girlfriend with that attitude? But the silence allowed Calista an opportunity to speak.
“My friend is still waiting for me downstairs, Teresa. I’ll be taking my leave. I hope you and your boyfriend
enjoy the rest of the day.”
