Coolest Girl in Town Chapter 228
“No way! Even though I was super quick, I couldn’t even secure any tickets!” Danny exclaimed in mild disbelief.
After finishing with the payment process, Jack breathed a sigh of relief and waved his cell phone at Mikayla. “I managed to get three tickets, but they’re not the VIP ones.”
“That’s good enough! H is so popular and has such tech-savvy fans, so the fact that you’ve managed to get any tickets at all means you’ve surpassed the majority of them.” Following that, Mikayla looked at Elise. “Come with us when the time comes.”
As Elise looked at them, an idea formed in her mind, so she answered, “Alright, but I might be a bit late that evening. I have a surprise prepared for all of you.”
All at once, they stared expectantly at her.
“What’s the surprise? Tell us right now!”
“Yeah, don’t keep us in suspense!”
Nevertheless, she only gave a mysterious smile. As she glanced at Alexander, she noticed him with a curious gaze before he blurted, “Can’t you at least tell me?”
Elise playfully shook her head. “I have already said that it was a surprise! If I tell any one of you now, it won’t be a surprise anymore.”
Swer was e
Her answer was enough to placate them and they began to look forward to her so called ‘surprise.
After the banquet ended, the hosts saw the guests off at the door before returning to their respective rooms.
It was just like that as Elise and Alexander were the only two people left in the spacious hall.
“Danny told me you have a birthday present for me in my room,” Elise started, to which he nodded slightly with mild amusement. All of a sudden, she was a tad bit too eager to wait. “I’ll just pop in and check it out then.”
With that, she raced up the stairs to her room.
The moment she opened the door, she noticed gift boxes of all sizes neatly arranged at one side of the room–they were presents from Mikayla and the rest of her friends. On the other side of the room were boxes of different shapes and sizes wrapped with the same kind of paper. After Elise earnestly counted the presents one by one, she discovered that there were eighteen of them.
With that, she reached down to pick one at random and began disassembling the box.
Inside was a doll with a greeting card that read, ‘Hope you came into the world with eyes bright and full of stars. Wishing you a Happy 1st Birthday!
As she snorted out loud, she immediately began to tear open the second box where there was a pink princess gown inside. Its card read, “The two-year-old you must have been tottering about as you learn how to walk by now. You must have looked very cute!
Then, there was the next-‘Did you like hogging the television to watch cartoons as well? I wish I could have seen what you were like when you were three!
*Have you started preschool by now? Did you have many good friends? Once again, it’s your birthday. I hope you had a good year!
‘Did you like collecting toys? Being five years old must be a strange new world for
*Now that you’re six, you’re about to attend grade school! In the future, you must be brave and strong?
‘Did the seven-year-old cutie pie have any hobbies? Can you tell me about them?’
There was more with similar messages.
As Elise tore the boxes open one by one, she found different presents and greeting cards in them. By the time she finished reading the 17th card, tears were already swimming in her eyes.
‘Good day to you, 18-year-old Elise Sinclair. I am 24-year-old Alexander Griffith. It’s nice to meet you! Even though I have missed your first 17 birthdays, I hope to be able to spend every future one with you! Being 18 means that you’re all grown up whereby your life can truly begin. I hope you have nothing but a beautiful life ahead
of you and that I may be able to accompany you every step of the way’
ext Alexander Griffith’
was enough to make her weep in earnest. When she turned around, she discovered Nexander standing behind her and gaming at her, so she threw herself into his arms wethout the hesitation to tightly squeeze him.
As he gently looked at her, he cupped the back of her head and asked, “Have you hashe looking at the presents
Do you like them.”
While meeting his gaze, she told him, “This is my first time receiving so many presents at once. Id never be able to tell from our daily life that you, Alexander Gratish, can be such a romantic. I love these gifts. Thank you very much.”
Although his expression had sottened even further, Alexander couldn’t help asking her with a tease, “Is it enough simply to say thank you?”
Without any hesitation, Elise tiptoed to kiss him on his lips.
For a moment, Alexander troze before he closed his eyes and took the initiative to deepen the kiss

With that, he departed and left Elise to stand there, tlummoxed As if she thought of Momething her face suddenly reddened and she couldn’t help giggling,
Once again, she looked around at the gifts in her room and smiled brightly. As her heart filled with gratitute for Alexander’s kindness, she vowed to search for the right opportunity to tell hin the things that she had yet to tell him
Her college entrance examination began to grow near after her birthday party,
In the final days before their examination, all of the twelfth graders worked especially
hard. Since even Danny was up early on a daily basis to cram for his Chinese exam, it was a given that Elise would dedicate all of her time for her revision.
The day before the entrance examination, Elise retrieved her exam pass and decided to take a look at the examination hall with Mikayla before heading home. Much to her surprise, Danny had appeared out of nowhere and inquired, “Exams are tomorrow, Boss! Are you nervous?”
Ehse shook her head. “No, you?”
With some embarrassment, he rubbed the back of his head as for the weirdest reason, he had been restless and uneasy for the past two days. “To tell you the truth, I am a bit nervous. That is, I feel tense and at a loss.”
As she observed Danny, she commented, “You’re suffering from a case of the nerves because you didn’t spend enough time preparing for your exams. These are symptoms that you’ll only experience if you are highly nervous and they won’t disappear completely until the exams are over.”
“Oh no, What should I do then?”
While patting his shoulder, she consoled, “Do you trust me?”
Without any hesitation, Danny nodded. “You’re my boss. Of course I trust you!”
“Then, don’t pick up any more books when you arrive home. Jog around the neighborhood to relax instead before you wash up and head to bed.”
Danny was somewhat doubtful when he clarified, “Are you sure that will work?”
An earnest Elise nodded, “You’ll find out once you try!”
Now that he had placed his entire faith in her, he returned home, changed into a tracksuit, and went jogging. By the time he arrived home, dinner was ready and Alexander happened to return as well.
“Why are you back so early today?” a surprised Elise asked.
A second later, Alexander suddenly walked up to her and pulled a bouquet of sunflowers out from behind his back, “Good luck with your exams tomorrow. I hope you come out on topt
