Chapter 316 What Did I Do Wrong
Why were Uncle Hugo and his men here? Wasn’t he supposed to be overseas dealing with other business? He had left Capeton under her father’s hands in the meantime.
Before she could come up with a reasonable explanation, Liam had already walked up to her and greeted,
He glanced at Calista, pursed his lips, and said nothing. Calista raised an eyebrow. She was about to speak, but Liam’s gaze shifted away, and he walked toward room 1208.
Security had already removed the reporters, bringing the guests to the first floor
Leopold were left in the entire corridor.
Only Calista, Vivian, and
Liam entered the room, and a few seconds later, a disheveled Diego came out with a dejected look.
Seeing Leopold standing at the door with bright kiss marks on his body, Diego couldn’t hold back and
It had been dark and chaotic just now. Then, he had been trapped in the room by reporters. Amid his
emotional turmoil, he hadn’t had the time to think about his kiss with a man.
Now he felt traumatized. Just the thought of him kissing a man made him nauseous to wanting to puke..
He wondered if this would have any consequences in the future.
Leopold was no less in shock than Diego.
He kicked him on the butt and said, “You still have the nerve to vomit. Did you turn into an animal? You just pounced on me as soon as you entered. This wouldn’t have happened if you had turned on a light.”
Everyone in the entertainment industry aimed to look good on camera, so they maintained a thin figure. Diego played the role of a sickly character in the show. Thus, he had a frail body.
Leopold’s kick sent him flying to the ground. He scrambled to his feet on both hands and feet and turned
to fight with Leopold.
You’re still talking about me? I’ll beat you to death!”
ore he could hit Leopold, Liam grabbed him by the collar. Seeing that there was no more spectacle to
ch, Calista turned and returned to her room,
Calata didn’t reply. She sat in her room for a few minutes. She got up to leave when she assumed everyone outside had left.
As soon as she opened the door, she saw Lucian standing at her door, about to knock. He was wearing a formal black suit with a tie and cufflinks. There was a hint of weariness in his eyes.
Lucian strode in, saying, “Wait a little longer”
Calista asked. “For what?”
“For the Jacquez family’s explanation,” Lucian replied
He circled the room, checked around, then turned and saw Calista standing there.
“Are you planning to stand at the door and wait for someone from the Jacques family to invite you over?”
Calista closed the door and walked toward him. As soon as she sat down next to Lucian, he leaned his head on her shoulder before she could say anyth
I’ve checked regarding the key cards for the room. They were randomly assigned, but the receptionist kept a record. So, this matter might end with Vivian and Diego getting reprimanded”
That might end this matter for the Jacques family, but not him. He rested on her shoulder, taking in her familiar scent.
Calista felt a bit uncomfortable and shifted her shoulder, raising her hand to push him away
As soon as her hand touched him, Lucian grabbed it and spoke hoarsely. “I’ve asked around so much just now. I’m so tired.”
“You didn’t have to do it yourself. Don’t you just give an order, and someone will do the bidding?”
“Have you ever seen anyone attend a party with a group of people? It would look like a gang fight. Besides, why are you here? Do my words mean shit to you?” he asked, gritting his teeth when he got to This point
fact that Lucian would curse so out of character indicated just how frustrated he was

Investigate the details.
Calista felt guilty and replied, “Vivian invited me.”
“And you came just because she invited you? You’re so compliant to her words, but when I try to keep you away from her, you don’t listen! Even animals know to run from danger. You, on the other hand, run
toward danger like a moth to a flame. Do you think you’re Invincible?”
Calista was speechless. He deliberately tried to piss her off by insinuating she was worse than an animal.
She pushed his head away and snapped, “Vivian invited me over as your fiancée. Of course, I had to come and offer my blessings. Otherwise, people might think I still have feelings for my ex–husband. Who knows what they might do to me behind my back? I’m just a nobody, I had to wise up and protect myself.
Calista was infuriated.
Lucian suddenly wrapped his arms around her and said sincerely, “I’m sorry.”
It was surprising to see such a prideful man as Lucian apologized.
Calista asked, “Do you know what you did wrong?”
Lucian remained silent.
“If you don’t, what are you apologizing for? Let go of me, don’t hug me.”
Lucian whined helplessly, “You’ll run away if I let you go. I wouldn’t come today, but my mom messaged me and said you were here. I hurriedly canceled all my meetings and rushed over. When I arrived, I
immediately investigated what went wrong with the room keys,”
“Didn’t you say I was like a moth to a
ame? Staying away from you is avoiding trouble.” Even though she
said this, Calista’s attitude had softened.
She struggled and added, “Stop hugging me like I’m some teddy bear.”
At that moment, there was a knock on the door. Lucian removed his hands from her waist. As Calista was
about to answer the door, Lucian gently pushed her back onto the sofa.
Lucian open the door. Mr. Northwood?
“Mr. Hugo would like to invite Miss Calista over to answer some questions.”
Lucian stared coldly at him.
“Let him come and ask in person. If he can’t give my wife a reasonable explanation for what happened today, Пll take matters into my own hands. I’ve already had my people investigate. But when it comes to that point, this party would have been held for nothing.”
Jacquez family was trying to expand their business to Capeton. It was the reason behind the party. If this
matter weren’t resolved to Lucian’s satisfaction, he would cut off as many of their sources as necessary.
Liam’s gaze shifted beyond Lucian and landed on Calista
“Mr. Hugo wants to understand why Miss Calista’s room card was swapped with Leopold’s. Did she know
anything in advance?”
“So, are you suggesting that my wife should have gone into that room and been harassed by Diego? Leopold was in that room because he had the card to room 2018, but Diego didn’t. How about you explain to me why he ended up there?”
Liam said, “I’m sorry, I misspoke. I’ll get Mr. Hugo right away.”
Just as he finished speaking, a middle–aged man with a deep voice spoke from behind, “Liam, bring Diego and Vivian here.
