Samuel, who had been partying every night, changed his mind about pulling an all-nighter after the call. Having lost his mood, he sighed and called for a designated driver to drive him home.
Well, it indeed isn’t good to drink at such a late hour. I should just sleep early and ask Alexander out for golf tomorrow. I can even invite Sophia so that he has a chance to get closer to her! Haha, I’m so smart!
At that moment, Samuel felt as if he was responsible for Alexander’s happiness. The next morning, he woke up early and began making calls.
Of course, the most important person he had to call first was Sophia.
Before the clock even hit eight, Sophia was woken up by a phone call. With her sleep disrupted on a wonderful Saturday morning, she was pissed off. Thus, when she saw that the call was from an unknown number, she rejected it.
However, the caller was persistent. After two rejections, he called once again.
Now fully awake, Sophia answered the phone with a cold expression. “Hello, Sophia speaking.”
“Hey, Sophia. It’s me, Samuel!”
Oh, it’s this dumb*ss.
Sophia rubbed her temples and asked, “What is it, Mr. Schild?”
“Look, the weather is so nice today. Isn’t it a perfect day to go out?”
When Sophia heard how he was beating around the bush, she laughed in exasperation. “What do you want to do?”
“Golfing! Since you’re so good at it, why don’t we play together? It’s so boring to play on my own.”
Arching her brow, Sophia said, “No thanks. I have an appointment today.”
What a coincidence. Alexander also asked me to play golf today.
On the other end of the line, Samuel paused for a while before saying, “Oh, okay. Next time then.”
Samuel couldn’t help but pity Alexander. He decided then and there to sacrifice his whole day to spend time with Alexander and make the latter feel better.
Yet when he called Alexander, he only got a few words in return. “I’m busy!”
Samuel was rendered speechless by that.
Meanwhile, Sophia was in a foul mood after being woken up by Samuel so early in the morning.
Nevertheless, the weather was indeed nice. It was a breezy and sunny day, perfect for golf.
Unfortunately, Alexander already asked me out last night, or I would have agreed to hang out with Samuel. I might earn some money again if I did that.
After Sophia finished washing up, Alexander arrived.
Instead of climbing over the fence, he pressed the doorbell and waited for her outside this time.
They had breakfast together before heading to the golf course. As it was a sunny weekend, the place was quite crowded.
Not wanting to mingle with the crowd, Sophia chose a more secluded spot with Alexander.
“Shall we have a match, Sophia?”
Sophia raised her brow at that. “What are we betting on?”
Though she wasn’t as good as Alexander, it was fun to place bets.
Alexander looked back at her and asked in return, “What would you like to bet on?”
Sophia gave it a thought. “If I win, go to the entrance and kiss the first person who comes out.”
That was the punishment Samuel and his friends came up with the last time they played together.
The moment Alexander heard her, his expression changed.
“I’m just kidding,” Sophia went on with a smirk. “If I win, you can’t drink from my mug again.”
She was not germophobic, but that mug was her favorite.
After a short silence, Alexander nodded. “What if I win?” he asked.
Sophia lifted her eyebrow and walked over to him. “What do you want to do?”
As a bold idea occurred to Alexander, he gulped.
In the end, he chose to keep it to himself. “Give me a peck,” he said instead.
A blush crept across Sophia’s face, but she grinned and agreed, “Sure.”
She was well aware that she was no match for Alexander in playing golf, but she just wanted to give it a try. In truth, hope was not enough to bring her victory.
Soon, she accepted her defeat. “I lost.”
“I won,” Alexander declared as he beamed at Sophia.
Sophia’s heartbeat started to quicken as she felt Alexander’s gaze on her. Feeling shy, she lowered her eyes.
Right at that moment, a familiar voice interrupted their moment. “Alex? Sophia?”
From afar, Samuel saw a couple who looked very much like Alexander and Sophia. However, it didn’t make sense to him that the two would appear here at the same time.
Moreover, they looked really close to each other.
Samuel was accompanied by Justin, who recognized the couple at one glance. Since Samuel wouldn’t believe it, Justin dragged him over.
At the sight of Samuel, Sophia raised her brow.
What a coincidence for us to meet at such a secluded spot.
Alexander, on the other hand, glanced at Samuel coldly out of irritation.
At that point in time, Samuel was only concerned about one question. “Why are you two here?”
“To play golf,” Sophia responded with a smile.
“Of course I know that! You obviously didn’t come to a golf course to pick up golf balls instead. What I meant was, why are the two of you here together? Sophia, don’t tell me the appointment you were talking about is this appointment. What’s the status of your relationship right now?”
Without saying anything, Sophia looked at Alexander with an ambiguous expression.
Alexander froze for a while before remembering what Sophia had said that night. Instead of saying that they were dating, he answered, “Just friends.”
“What’s the problem, Mr. Schild?” Sophia chimed in, sounding so serious that Samuel started to doubt himself again.
“Did you two really not reconcile?” he questioned.
“Are we supposed to?” Sophia retorted.
Samuel had to admit that was a wonderful comeback, and he couldn’t help but look at Alexander with pity.
Standing at the side, Justin couldn’t bear to watch it any longer. He stepped in and tugged Samuel’s arm, saying, “That’s enough. I thought we were going to play golf?”
Samuel felt the need to help Alexander, so he voiced, “Right. Since we ran into each other, why don’t we just play together? Come on!”
After saying that, he even winked at Alexander.
Sophia could barely hold her laughter upon seeing that.
She used to think that Katherine was too gullible, but it seemed that Samuel was just the same.
It seems that Alexander and his friends did a lot to make sure Samuel grew up safely for all these years. Otherwise, this fool would have been scammed by someone and still have no idea about it!
Alexander cast Samuel a disdainful glance and said, “You guys enjoy playing. I have something to do with Sophia.”
Then, he grabbed Sophia’s hand. “Let’s go.”
Even as they left Samuel behind, the latter tried to make them stay, yelling, “Hey, the more the merrier! What are you going to do, anyway? It’s the weekend. Forget about work for now!”
Beside him, Justin rubbed his forehead in exasperation. Worried that Samuel would actually run after the couple, he pulled the man’s arm and chided, “Are you for real? Can’t you see that Alex finds you a nuisance for disturbing them?”
“How could I be a nuisance? I’m trying to be the mediator so I can put in a good word for him!”
Justin rolled his eyes. “Alex doesn’t need you to put in a good word for him.”
“Why not? Didn’t you notice that Sophia was super unfriendly toward… Wait, why is Alexander holding hands with Sophia?”
As if discovering a whole new world, Samuel exclaimed, “Am I seeing that right? Look! They seem to be holding hands!”
“No, you’re seeing things. They’re several meters apart,” Justin scoffed.
It was then that Samuel finally figured out what was going on. “I…”
I’m so tired!
“Did they just mess with me?”
“Well, one thing’s for sure—you’re really stupid.”
