Chapter 622 An Odd Woman
‘Tl get the usual dishes,” Tristan said with a smile.
“All right. It’ll be ready in a moment!” the waiter replied cheerfully and left.
Jared surveyed the restaurant and thought its interior design was sophisticated, even though the space was not very big. Moreover, there were quite many diners in the restaurant.
Sitting just a stone’s throw away from them was a young woman dining by herself, clad in a satin dress and had a fair complexion. When his eyes ranged over her, his gaze lingered on her subconsciously, and his heart started racing a few seconds later. All of a sudden, he had the urge to go up to her and pin her to the ground.
Jared bit the tip of his tongue hard to jolt himself out of it. Instantly, the pain caused him to return to his senses, and he retracted his gaze from her.
‘Is everything all right, Mr. Chance?” Tristan asked upon noticing the changes in his expression.
Jared’s heart was still pounding fast, and his cheeks were flushed. Flustered by his sudden desire, he could not help but knit his brows.
Although he was a hot-blooded young man, he had strong self-control. Plenty of women had offered themselves to them, and he was never once aroused.
Even when Jared first saw Lizbeth’s naked body, he had never reacted like he did that day.
The fact that he lost his composure merely from looking at the young woman for a few seconds disconcerted him.
Finally, he shook his head and replied, “I’m fine.”
Tristan observed Jared for a while before turning his attention to the young woman. He was aware that Jared blushed and started breathing quicker after glancing at her.
“Don’t look at her…”
Upon noticing that Tristan was looking at the woman, Jared tried to stop him, but it was too late. The former had his eyes fastened on her.
After studying the young woman from head to toe, Tristan tilted his head and asked, “Is there something wrong with her, Mr. Chance?”
His calm reaction weirded out Jared, who queried, “Did you feel aroused when you looked at her?”
“Not at all!” Tristan shook his head with a confused expression. “I mean, she’s pretty, but it’s not to the extent that I would lust for her at first glance. Are you perhaps feeling frustrated because you’ve been staying on your own for the last couple of days? I can arrange for a few women to keep you company…”
Tristan thought Jared must have reacted in such a manner because he had been cooped up for too long and missed the touch of a woman.
Upon hearing that, Jared shook his head awkwardly. “No, thanks.”
As of then, he still had not been intimate with any woman even though he was surrounded by many.
Minutes later, the waiter brought the dishes to the table. While Tristan invited him to dig in, Jared mustered up his courage and took another look at the woman.
However, that time around, he did not feel the sexual urge anymore despite staring at her for a long moment. That’s strange.
Tristan noticed that Jared could not keep his eyes away from the young woman, so he smiled and asked, “Do you want me to call her over?”
“Nope. Let’s eat.” Jared then lowered his head and began eating.
“Oh, my, look who’s here! What a coincidence, Mr. Bailey.”
Halfway through their meal, a frivolous voice sounded from a distance.
Tristan instantly recognized the man’s voice and frowned. He did not even bother to turn around to look at him as he cautioned, “Stay away from me, Gavin. I’m not in the mood to entertain you today.”
Jared lifted his head to look at Gavin, who resembled a hooligan. There was barely any aura on the latter, which showed he was not a martial artist. Nevertheless, the two.
subordinates standing behind him were Grandmasters.
