Never Late, Never Away Chapter 20

By the time Finnick left for Q City, Vivian and Fabian were already on their way.

Over in the business class cabin, Vivian sat beside Fabian uneasily. The cabin crew just served an in-flight meal and it was paella. Vivian hated seafood so much she did not even touch the food.

“Still don’t fancy seafood?” Fabian asked with a smirk on his face.

“I can tell the Chief Editor’s memory is still functioning alright,” Vivian replied nastily. She had had enough of Fabian today.

“Of course. I remember everything about my first love,” Fabian said slowly after taking a sip of coffee.

Vivian closed her eyes and took deep breaths. She did not want to get into a fight with him on the plane.

But Fabian did not seem to realize her reaction. “Besides, how can I ever forget the feeling of being played for a fool by my first love?” he added.

Vivian’s face turned pale as bad memories came flooding back. “Mr. Norton, I’m not sure who’s being played for a fool here. I’m not the one who hid my real identity on purpose.”

Fabian’s expression changed slightly before he chuckled. He was not expecting her to retaliate. “Of course. I should’ve told you earlier, shouldn’t I? Then you probably wouldn’t have betrayed me and thrown yourself on a sixty-year-old saggy old man.”

Fabian was not even trying to lower his voice. Other passengers and flight attendants widened their eyes in astonishment.

“Fabian Norton, what do you think you’re doing?” Vivian finally snapped.
