The convenient Bride novel Chapter 313

Why didn't you say anything then?


There seemed to be an edge to it. Rosiley took a deep breath and said, "You're angry, aren't you?"


She looked somewhat aggrieved. Sachin raised his eyebrows slightly and curled up his lips, "Aren't you the same?"


Rosiley curled her lips and admitted frankly, "I am.”


Sachin nodded. "So am I, then."


Rosiley was at a loss for words.


Frustration hit her suddenly, which convinced her that she was making it worse by getting mad herself.


She let out a heavy sigh and looked at Sachin seriously as she said in the same earnest tone, "Bertram and I are just friends."


Sachin stared at her without saying a word.


His eyes were too dark for her to read his thoughts.


After a long stretch of silence, he finally opened his mouth and spat two simple words—


"l know."


So? He said he knew. He didn't misunderstand her and Bertram, nor did he not believe her. But why was he angry?


She couldn't understand.


Perhaps noting her confusion, Sachin continued, "It's not that I don't believe you. The one I don't believe is Bertram.”


"Huh?" Rosiley was even more confused.


Why didn't he believe Bertram?


Sachin leaned back into the sofa, his hands crossing in front of his chest. His heavy gaze fell on her confused face, and the 

corner of his lips slowly curled up, "He likes you."


After a short moment of surprise, Rosiley came to her senses and asked tentatively, "Are you afraid that he would do 

something to me?"


"Yes." Sachin nodded, "He is not as simple as he seems to be."


Frowning, Rosiley thought for a moment, "Did you investigate him?"


Instead of answering her directly, he asked, "Why do you think he has become so popular in the entertainment industry in mere three years?”


"Of course, it's because of his acting skills and good looks."


Rosiley thought his question was stupid. Wasn't that obvious to everyone? Why bother asking?


Sachin chuckled, "Rosiley, do you truly believe that one could succeed in the entertainment industry just by looks and acting skills? You're underestimating the industry.’


"Is that so?” Rosiley raised her eyebrows and said, "It is a complicated industry. I don't know about others, but Bertram does succeed because of his appearance and skills.”


Although she was backing Bertram, Sachin did not take it seriously. He chuckled softly, "I do not deny his looks and skills, but his background is also an undeniable factor.”


"So you're saying that he got to where he is today by his impressive background?"


Rosiley represented what he wanted to say.


Sachin smiled, "Perhaps."


Perhaps? Rosiley raised her eyebrows. He didn't admit that Bertram was popular because of his background.


"I don't know if that’s the reason. I just want to tell you that he is not as simple as you think he is.”


Alright, she understood what he meant. With all that said, he was just afraid that Bertram would do something to her.


Deep down, she believed that Bertram was not a calculating man. At the very least, he wouldn't do anything to her.


But she didn't dare to say it out loud. Sachin was unhappy already. If she voiced that, it would just bring her more trouble.


So she took a deep breath, raised her right hand, and pretended to be convinced, “I promise I won't see him alone anymore.”


Sachin was silent for a while before he curled up his lips, "You volunteered for that. I didn't force you.”


‘Dang, he's like bargaining for stolen goods!’


Rosiley curled her lips with annoyance. "Right, you didn't force me.”
