Chapter 1555 To the Amusement Park
“I hope I didn’t scare you.” Julian looked at her, amused. Jessie shook her head and met his gaze. “You didn’t. I like kissing you.” His heart leaped with joy upon hearing that. He leaned down and pecked her lips. “So, do you now understand how I feel about you?”
Of course, she did. Still, she had a hard time believing in all of this as everything felt like a dream to her. “Do you like me?” That was her insecurity speaking.
Solemnly, he answered, “Yes.” Jessie rested her head on his chest and stared at his collarbone before reaching over to touch it. Julian huffed, “Stop touching.” “Hey, you just kissed me, so why can’t I touch you? That’s so unfair.” It’s only fair if I get to touch him since he kissed me just now.
He looked at her with resignation in his eyes. “That’s not what I meant. You can touch me, but I can’t go out looking like this, you know. You can’t expect me to stay in this room forever.”
O-Oh, that’s what he’s trying to say. She quickly got up. “I-I’ll go out, then. You do what you have to do.” She picked her bag up and combed her hair before exiting the room. She was so embarrassed that she couldn’t even look at Ashley, who stood right outside the waiting room.
Jessie made her way to the coffee shop on the third floor, but her face was still red. Gilmore Corporation had built the coffee shop specifically for its artists and employees. It was a high-end place. She waited for Julian in the coffee shop, and it was not until 11.00AM that he finally showed up. This time, he was in casual attire, yet he looked elegant nonetheless.
She couldn’t help but steal a glance at him before staring at the ground swiftly soon after. “We’re having lunch together. Then, it’s free time. You can go wherever you want, and I’ll come with you.”
“Really? I can go anywhere I want?” she asked, the anticipation in her voice almost palpable. “Yep.”
“Can I go to the amusement park, then?” She had never gone to an amusement park her whole life, not even once. Tickets were too expensive for her back then. Even though she had reunited with her family, she still hadn’t had the chance to go to an amusement park. Now that they had time, she wanted to see what that place was like. And with Julian by my side, this is going to be great.
“Sure, I’ll go.” He smiled. They departed for the amusement park after having lunch. Ashley bought all the disguise items for them on their way: masks, sunglasses, and hats. Jessie went for a mask and a hat, while Julian only wore a pair of sunglasses. Apparently, he wasn’t worried about getting recognized.
Ashley pleaded, “Sir, your fans can recognize you from a mile away if you have no mask on. You should wear one for the sake of public safety.”
“I’m his fan, and I don’t even need to see his face to recognize him. His body shape’s enough,” Jessie remarked. He smiled as he looked at her. “So, you’ve fallen for me even before we met, huh?”
“Yep. I saw you during my first year in the industry and have fallen for you since then.” She smiled smugly.
Julian straightened her hat and her mask. Then, he pushed her hair back.
Ashley watched on as the couple flirted with each other. Hey, do you mind? I’m still single, you know. Cut back on the show of affection, alright?
Even though it was on a weekday, the amusement park had quite a few visitors. Ashley entered with the couple, acting as their errand girl. Though, there was a perk: she could go on the rides as well. Julian and Jessie looked like a perfect couple together. Ashley bought Jessie a cute headband the moment they entered the amusement park.
Jessie took her hat off and wore the headband. It was indeed an adorable sight to behold. “I’ll snap a pic for you two.” Ashley held her phone up and trotted ahead.
Julian pulled Jessie into his embrace, and she leaned on his chest bashfully while making a peace sign.
