Find Me In Your Labyrinth novel Chapter 1876

In the garden, Robin lounged on a bench, a cigarette dangling lazily from his fingers.

Sophia approached with a playful smile and draped a coat over his shoulders. "Aren't you cold, dressed like that?"

"The sun's out; it feels pretty warm!" Robin took a drag and exhaled a cloud of smoke into the crisp air.

"Why come out here instead of chatting inside?" Sophia leaned against him; her former aversion to the smell of smoke now became an endearing quirk, thanks to Robin.

Running a startup was tough, which caused Robin's smoking to become more frequent.

"Mr. Lamont and Mr. Langston don't smoke. They probably can't stand the smell," Robin mused.

"But they do smoke!" Sophia blurted out before she could stop herself.

Robin's gaze darkened with a hint of humor. "They just turned down a smoke from me. Seems like my brand isn't up to their standards."

Sophia's face fell as she rushed to explain. "They used to, but they might be trying for a baby now, and so—"

"There's no need to explain. In their eyes, I'm just a small fry. You're suffering because of me," Robin said with an unreadable expression .

Sophia shook her head. "You're overthinking it. They're not like that at all!"

He took another puff and remained silent.

"You're amazing, Robin," Sophia reassured him, resting her head on his shoulder. "Not many people could make it in Silicon Valley, let alone start their own company. Don't sell yourself short."

Robin, touched by her words, wrapped an arm around her. "I'll work even harder. I'll make a name for myself in J City!"

He was convinced that he would one day be a part of the city's elite.

Sophia looked up at him with admiration. "You're already doing great, you really are!"

Robin gazed down at her innocent and warm smile, feeling a stir in his heart. He lowered his head and planted a soft kiss on her forehead.

Sophia closed her eyes and held him close.
