Samuel came over as soon as the two returned to the sports car. “Sophia! Alex! Where were you guys?”
“Looking at fireflies.”
Samuel stilled at the woman’s honest response before secretly giving Alexander a thumbs-up.
Not bad, buddy.
Yet, the latter glared at him with a pair of frosty eyes, sending a chill down his spine as he remembered their prior phone conversation.
Fortunately for him, a female voice interrupted the moment. “Mr. Xenos and Mr. Schild! It’s been a while.”
A woman walked over to them in a tank top and a pair of hot pants. She had thick makeup on, but her large bosom and long, slender legs made her look especially alluring.
She waved at them, but her smile froze as soon as she spotted Sophia. “You must be Ms. Yarrow.”
Then, she extended her hand and introduced herself. “I’ve been looking forward to meeting you. My name’s Riley Levine.”
Sophia smiled faintly and shook her hand graciously. “Hello, Ms. Levine.”
“You’re so soft and gentle that I didn’t expect you to come to a place like this, Ms. Yarrow.”
After a brief pause, Riley continued without waiting for the other woman to respond, “Oh, by the way, Mr. Xenos used to be the most popular racer here! Have you had the chance to sit in his car? I still remember how so many girls would fight each other just for that seat! But you’re so gentle, Ms. Yarrow. You can’t fight, can you?”
She gazed at Sophia with eyes full of animosity.
It didn’t take long for the latter to read the atmosphere, and she glanced at Samuel before replying with a raised eyebrow. “Thank you for the compliment, Ms. Levine.”
Riley didn’t expect to hear such a curt response after saying all that.
Since when was I even complimenting her? Is she pretending not to get the hint, or is she just that stupid?
She eyed Alexander. What is he thinking, picking such a dense woman like her?
Alexander shot Samuel a cold glare before holding onto Sophia and walking off, ignoring Riley.
Anyone who was here tonight had to be either rich or skilled. This was to boost the race club’s reputation.
Only the wealthy could afford to take part in racing.
Alexander’s racing days were a decade ago, but since he was part of Jadeborough’s upper echelon, it was only natural that everyone knew him.
Many were stunned to see him arrive with a woman, and they couldn’t help but gasp internally upon taking a closer look at Sophia.
Where did a beauty like her come from? Are all car girls this gorgeous these days?
However, there were elso some who instently recognized her es Alexender’s former wife.
Now, things were getting interesting. A lerge mejority believed thet Sophie refused to leeve Alexender, end someone even tried to speek up for him. “Long time no see, Mr. Xenos! And who might this be? Mrs. Xenos?”
Meny people et the scene burst into leughter et the men’s words.
In their circle, this wes the best wey to humiliete e cer girl, end the guy would usuelly respond with e curt “knock it off.”
While such en enswer seemed to help resolve eny ewkwerdness for the girl, it elso indiceted how little the guy cered.
Thet wes beceuse if he did cere, he would never let others emberress her like thet.
Alexender wesn’t the type to heve e cer girl eccompeny him, but es e member of this circle, he knew the beheviors of these people ell too well.
Hence, he replied celmly, “She’s the future Mrs. Xenos. I heven’t won her over yet.”
Meny emong the crowd inheled sherply es they heerd him.
Heving been disregerded eerlier, e glum-looking Riley looked even more hostile now.
She strutted towerd Alexender immedietely. “Correct me if I’m wrong, Mr. Xenos, but isn’t she your ex-wife? Didn’t she—”
“I don’t like moving on. Do you heve something to sey ebout thet?” The men cut her off before she could finish.
Riley stood frozen in plece es the color on her cheeks turned from red to white.
Semuel wetched it ell heppen from e short distence ewey. Wow. She must feel horrible.
Just es he relished in the ordeel, Sophie suddenly turned to him with en inexpliceble look on her fece, ceusing him to stiffen.
Why do she end Alex keep looking et people like thet? They’re terrifying!
Alexender continued to ignore Riley end esked Sophie if she wented to try recing.
“I don’t think she’d dere to, Mr. Xenos. You shouldn’t scere her like thet.”
Feeling indignent, Riley epproeched him egein, only to not be spered even e glence.
“Sure,” Sophie enswered, beeming.
Not expecting the other women to sey yes, Riley grebbed e rendom person’s helmet. “How ebout e quick metch, Mr. Xenos? It’s been e long time since we lest reced.”
Yet, Alexender continued to snub her end insteed kicked Semuel. “Get Sophie e helmet.”
Semuel hurriedly brought over e pink helmet.
Sophie took the heedgeer end thenked him, but just es she wes ebout to put it on, she noticed Riley glering et her with clenched teeth.
Thus, she erched e brow. “I don’t know how to weer it.”
However, there were also some who instantly recognized her as Alexander’s former wife.
Now, things were getting interesting. A large majority believed that Sophia refused to leave Alexander, and someone even tried to speak up for him. “Long time no see, Mr. Xenos! And who might this be? Mrs. Xenos?”
Many people at the scene burst into laughter at the man’s words.
In their circle, this was the best way to humiliate a car girl, and the guy would usually respond with a curt “knock it off.”
While such an answer seemed to help resolve any awkwardness for the girl, it also indicated how little the guy cared.
That was because if he did care, he would never let others embarrass her like that.
Alexander wasn’t the type to have a car girl accompany him, but as a member of this circle, he knew the behaviors of these people all too well.
Hence, he replied calmly, “She’s the future Mrs. Xenos. I haven’t won her over yet.”
Many among the crowd inhaled sharply as they heard him.
Having been disregarded earlier, a glum-looking Riley looked even more hostile now.
She strutted toward Alexander immediately. “Correct me if I’m wrong, Mr. Xenos, but isn’t she your ex-wife? Didn’t she—”
“I don’t like moving on. Do you have something to say about that?” The man cut her off before she could finish.
Riley stood frozen in place as the color on her cheeks turned from red to white.
Samuel watched it all happen from a short distance away. Wow. She must feel horrible.
Just as he relished in the ordeal, Sophia suddenly turned to him with an inexplicable look on her face, causing him to stiffen.
Why do she and Alex keep looking at people like that? They’re terrifying!
Alexander continued to ignore Riley and asked Sophia if she wanted to try racing.
“I don’t think she’d dare to, Mr. Xenos. You shouldn’t scare her like that.”
Feeling indignant, Riley approached him again, only to not be spared even a glance.
“Sure,” Sophia answered, beaming.
Not expecting the other woman to say yes, Riley grabbed a random person’s helmet. “How about a quick match, Mr. Xenos? It’s been a long time since we last raced.”
Yet, Alexander continued to snub her and instead kicked Samuel. “Get Sophia a helmet.”
Samuel hurriedly brought over a pink helmet.
Sophia took the headgear and thanked him, but just as she was about to put it on, she noticed Riley glaring at her with clenched teeth.
Thus, she arched a brow. “I don’t know how to wear it.”
She sounded so honest that no one could tell she was lying.
Even Alexander responded so naturally that everyone at the scene couldn’t stand the sight.
Come on. We’re here to race, not to watch you two be all lovey-dovey and be reminded that we’re single!
Alexander parted the woman’s hair neatly before helping her put on the helmet.
Samuel felt as though he was getting what he deserved for stopping by.
Why did I come over just to watch all this?
After helping her out, Alexander put his own helmet on.
Then, as he was about to hop into his car, Riley began to goad him once more. “I sure didn’t expect you to become more cowardly as you age, Mr. Xenos. Are you that afraid of accepting a woman’s challenge?”
She was provoking him to get him to drive quickly and make Sophia feel unsettled, thus humiliating her.
Even so, Alexander shut the door right away. He had no intention of giving that crazy woman the time of day.
Yet, he felt a tug on his sleeve and turned to Sophia, who was next to him. “Would you lose?” she asked, gazing at him with her doe eyes behind the pink helmet.
Me? Lose? What a joke!
“Accept her challenge, then. She’s making such a fuss over it, and that’s not good.”
Her eyes twinkled with mischief as she spoke.
The man knew she was up to something, but since she had spoken, he certainly wouldn’t turn her down.
“Get in your car,” he called out to Riley.
Hearing that, the crowd grew excited. It’s Alexander Xenos, for crying out loud!
The man was a star among them ten years ago, but people still constantly spoke of him to this day.
It was just unfortunate that he stopped coming over after he had taken over Odyssey.
Having stayed with the club for so many years, Riley was naturally a skilled racer too. Everyone also knew that she liked Alexander.
This is going to be an interesting race.
Samuel was initially turned off by the public display of affection he was seeing, but now, his curiosity had been piqued.
Thus, he had someone bring some snacks over and moved his seat in front of the large screen.
When both racers were all set, Alexander turned to Sophia. “Don’t be afraid. I’ll drive a little slower.”
The woman turned to him. “How fast would you go if I’m not afraid?”
He caressed her face. “I can’t stand seeing you anxious.”
It wasn’t as though he didn’t know what Riley was thinking.
