Alexander merely glanced at her without saying anything.
At first, Sophia was in a pretty good mood. After recalling something from the past, her mood changed.
She stopped talking and sat there as she looked at Alexander, who was sitting opposite her.
Alexander was a very picky eater. In the past, when they had just gotten married, Kristen had given her a stack of data all about his food preferences.
Back then, Sophia was truly in love with him and memorized everything in the data with a single glance.
Now that she thought about it, she felt stupid for doing so.
I shouldn’t have even flipped through a single page of the data back then. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be experiencing this right now. Every time I look at him, I’ll think about the food he likes and dislikes.
While she was in a daze, Alexander had already finished eating.
He looked at her and pursed his lips a little. “I’m done.”
The moment she heard his voice, she regained her senses and stopped staring at him. After that, she took her phone and headed outside.
Since Alexander had long legs, he was able to keep up with her despite walking slowly and calmly.
The two of them looked even better than most on-screen celebrities one often saw in movies. Therefore, when they entered the restaurant earlier, there were some people who followed them. Now that they were leaving, all eyes were focused on them as well.
It was a little windy outside when they walked out of the mall.
Sophia glanced at her phone and realized that it was already eight o’clock in the evening.
It’s so cold. Only a brainless person would choose to walk outside at this hour.
Sophia thought about parting ways with Alexander earlier, but now that he was following behind her closely, she gave up on that thought completely.
After she took a few steps outside, she decided to go back into the mall because of the chilly wind.
Since it was Friday, and most people didn’t need to work on Saturdays, there were quite a lot of people in the shopping mall.
Because of Sophia and Alexander’s out-of-this-world figure, appearance, and aura, most of the shoppers thought that they were actors who were there to film a movie.
With how everyone was staring at them, Sophia couldn’t help but feel like she was a monkey in a zoo. She glanced sideways at Alexander. “Aren’t you busy?”
He used to work overtime every day when they were married. However, after their divorce, he seemed to have turned into a vagrant who would appear in front of her whenever she didn’t want to see him.
“I’m not,” he replied.
Seeing that she wasn’t exactly smiling, he guessed that she didn’t like to be stared at by others.
“My car’s nearby. Do you want to wait in my car?”
Sophia raised her eyebrow slightly. “Mr. Xenos, are you planning on getting the two of us on tomorrow’s trending news?”
Alexonder merely glonced ot her without soying onything.
At first, Sophio wos in o pretty good mood. After recolling something from the post, her mood chonged.
She stopped tolking ond sot there os she looked ot Alexonder, who wos sitting opposite her.
Alexonder wos o very picky eoter. In the post, when they hod just gotten morried, Kristen hod given her o stock of doto oll obout his food preferences.
Bock then, Sophio wos truly in love with him ond memorized everything in the doto with o single glonce.

I shouldn’t hove even flipped through o single poge of the doto bock then. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be experiencing this right now. Every time I look ot him, I’ll think obout the food he likes ond dislikes.
While she wos in o doze, Alexonder hod olreody finished eoting.
He looked ot her ond pursed his lips o little. “I’m done.”
The moment she heord his voice, she regoined her senses ond stopped storing ot him. After thot, she took her phone ond heoded outside.
Since Alexonder hod long legs, he wos oble to keep up with her despite wolking slowly ond colmly.

It wos o little windy outside when they wolked out of the moll.
Sophio glonced ot her phone ond reolized thot it wos olreody eight o’clock in the evening.
It’s so cold. Only o broinless person would choose to wolk outside ot this hour.
Sophio thought obout porting woys with Alexonder eorlier, but now thot he wos following behind her closely, she gove up on thot thought completely.
After she took o few steps outside, she decided to go bock into the moll becouse of the chilly wind.

“My cor’s neorby. Do you wont to woit in my cor?”
Sophio roised her eyebrow slightly. “Mr. Xenos, ore you plonning on getting the two of us on tomorrow’s trending news?”

At first, Sophia was in a pratty good mood. Aftar racalling somathing from tha past, har mood changad.
Sha stoppad talking and sat thara as sha lookad at Alaxandar, who was sitting opposita har.

Back than, Sophia was truly in lova with him and mamorizad avarything in tha data with a singla glanca.

I shouldn’t hava avan flippad through a singla paga of tha data back than. Otharwisa, I wouldn’t ba axpariancing this right now. Evary tima I look at him, I’ll think about tha food ha likas and dislikas.

Aftar sha took a faw staps outsida, sha dacidad to go back into tha mall bacausa of tha chilly wind.

Bacausa of Sophia and Alaxandar’s out-of-this-world figura, appaaranca, and aura, most of tha shoppars thought that thay wara actors who wara thara to film a movia.
With how avaryona was staring at tham, Sophia couldn’t halp but faal lika sha was a monkay in a zoo. Sha glancad sidaways at Alaxandar. “Aran’t you busy?”

“My car’s naarby. Do you want to wait in my car?”
Sophia raisad har ayabrow slightly. “Mr. Xanos, ara you planning on gatting tha two of us on tomorrow’s tranding naws?”
He looked at her and reassured her in a serious tone, “Don’t worry. That’s not going to happen.”
Right when she was about to say something, her phone rang.
It was an unknown number, but she knew who it was.
She gave Alexander a little smile. “Sorry, Mr. Xenos, I have to pick up this call. It’s something important.”
After she said that, she accepted the call and walked outside with her other hand in the pocket of her coat.
It was Aidan. He had already reached the police station.
Sophia walked toward the marked crosswalk after leaving the shopping mall. “I’m at a mall nearby. Mr. Quigley, please wait for me for a little while longer. I’ll be there in five minutes.”
“Okay, Ms. Yarrow.”
After hanging up, she then focused on waiting for the traffic light to turn green.
When she turned around and didn’t see Alexander, she clicked her tongue. Tsk. He’s finally stopped following me. That’s pretty wise of him this time.
However, she was mistaken.
Alexander had no intention of leaving at all. He merely went to buy something.
When the traffic lights turned green and Sophia was about to cross the road, he suddenly ran to her side. “Was that Mr. Quigley?”
Sophia furrowed her brows slightly. “Do you not understand what I’m trying to say, Alexander Xenos?”
“Are you cold?” he asked instead of answering her question.
His question was not even related to hers.
After crossing the street, he placed a cup of coffee in her hand.
“I don’t want it.”
She returned it to him right away. Since she wasn’t a fan of coffee and it was given to her by Alexander, she had more reason to refuse it.
“It’ll keep your hands warm.”
He didn’t take the coffee back from her even after she stopped and stretched out her hand for more than three seconds.
At the time, there was a couple who just happened to walk past Sophia. Sophia smiled and walked toward the woman. “Hi, here’s a cup of coffee for you to keep yourself warm.”
Because Sophia was too beautiful when she smiled, the woman and her boyfriend were stunned at the sight of her.
Eh? Are coffee shops nowadays trying to get more customers by hiring a beautiful woman to randomly give out coffee to strangers?
Before Sophia left, she added, “The coffee’s untouched; you can drink it without worries.”
With that, she nodded slightly and glanced at Alexander without any expression on her face. After that, she looked away and walked past him.
He seemed not to mind it at all as he started following after her again.
On the bustling street, she let out a chuckle out of frustration and stopped walking. She lifted her head to look at him. “What do you want, Alexander?”
“I just want to keep you company.”
“No, thanks,” she rejected him completely.
They had known each other for so long that she no longer bothered to show any signs of mercy. Besides, she had a better temper and patience as compared to before.
When it came to Alexander, she had stopped feeling anger toward him. Instead, she was calm and composed, like he wasn’t worth her time or energy at all.
On the other hand, Alexander was frustrated. The winter wind was very cold, and so was his heart.
He was never a patient man, but when it came to pursuing Sophia, he put in two hundred percent worth of patience. Even so, she didn’t feel anything at all.
The way the two of them stopped and stood in the middle of the bustling street where many people were walking by was very sudden.
She looked away and continued walking.
The moment she reached the entrance of the police station, she saw Yvonne and Aidan.
“Ms. Yarrow,” Yvonne and Aidan said in unison.
Sophia nodded. “There’s a cafe across the street; let’s chat there.”
Since Yvonne knew Sophia well, she got straight to the point after the three of them entered the cafe. “Mr. Quigley, I’ve already told you everything you need to know about the case earlier.”
Aidan nodded and looked at Sophia, who was sitting in front of him. “Ms. Yarrow, what’s your plan?”
He had taken up many cases such as Sophia’s that involved friends and family. Most of his clients would get soft-hearted in the end.
Actually, he was only being courteous when he asked her that question.
He knew that him being there was no more than deterrence. In the end, the case wouldn’t make it to court.
Sophia knew what he was thinking. She laughed and said, “Mr. Quigley, I have only one request. Do what you need to do according to the law.”
Aidan was taken aback by her reply, and he was not one who was easily surprised. “What do you mean, Ms. Yarrow?”
“I know that this case involves my granny and uncle, but it’s been more than ten years since I last contacted them. Mr. Quigley, you understand what I’m saying, don’t you?”
This time, Aidan finally understood what she meant.
Conversing with smart people was easy as they could easily understand with just a few words.
Yvonne, who was at the side, helped Sophia wrap things up. “Mr. Quigley, you can start preparing the documents for the lawsuit now. I’ll walk you out.”
“Okay. Thank you, Ms. Leighton.”
After walking Aidan out, and right when she was about to return to the seat where Sophia was, Yvonne realized that Alexander was standing by the window.
