For a moment, Christina wasn’t sure if the Madison who used to plot against her was the same person. as the one standing before her.
Madison was currently all smiles.
However, her smile was devoid of emotions, which made Christina feel rather strange.
“I love it. You’ve got great taste.” It was only right to express gratitude after receiving a gift.
Such basic etiquette wasn’t lost on Christina.
Following that, Madison placed a beautiful black gift box on Nathaniel’s table. “This is yours, Mr. Hadley. I’ve brought you a gift, too, so don’t call me biased.”
Christina’s gaze fell on the gorgeous brooch in the box. One could tell it was a meticulously chosen gift.
In fact, it was obvious that Madison’s main objective was to give Nathaniel a gift. Christina’s gift was just
Without glancing at it, Nathaniel simply hummed in acknowledgment and picked up the document by
Madison could not tear her eyes away from his charming face. After all, she missed working with him. after not seeing him for two months.
However, she would never tell him her feelings.
Madison smiled and picked up her luggage. “I shall not disturb you two anymore. I’ll get going now.”
She would not show her emotions, no matter how disgruntled she felt.
After all, she had already been punished for her actions last time. All she could do at that moment was to take things a step at a time and wait for the right moment.
The thick atmosphere of jealousy that filled the air in the room was palpable, but it wasn’t from Nathaniel. Rather, it came from Christina.
She held the brooch and felt bitter when she thought of Nathaniel wearing a brooch gifted by another
Although it looked ordinary, an accessory like this represented the thoughts of the gift giver.
The recipient would be reminded of the giver whenever he or she put it on.
“It’s pretty,” Christina commented sourly as she put the box down.
Hearing that, Nathaniel looked up at her with a frown.
The woman was pulling her cheeks and pouting her lips, her sparkling eyes glinting with jealousy.
Nathaniel cast her a puzzled look.
Just then, Sebastian knocked on the door and entered with some documents. “Mr. Hadley, these
Chapter 159 The Birthday Of Grandma
documents are urgent. Please deal with them first.”
As soon as he put the documents down, a black box appeared out of nowhere in his line of sight.
Before Sebastian could even ask about it, Nathaniel said plainly, “It’s for you.”
Picking up the box, Sebastian muttered, “Madison has already given me a brooch, but it’s not as nice as this one.”
Nathaniel threw Sebastian a glare, exuding an icy aura
“Thank you. Mr. Hadley. I really like it.” With that, Sebastian turned around and left with the box.
The corners of Christina’s lips curled upward slightly. He’s getting smarter these days.
After lunch, Christina took a nap in the lounge before going to work at Radiant Corporation in the afternoon.
There was another meeting in the afternoon. Once it ended, Christina went to the tailor room to continue working on the gown that was close to its due date.
The new project was very important to Zachary, hence Gina was involved in designing as well.
It was almost nine o’clock in the evening by the time Christina exited the tailor room.
Almost all of her colleagues had left at that time. Seeing Gina’s office was still brightly lit, Christina. went to the pantry to get two glasses of warm water.
“Ms. Tanner, will I disturb your work?” asked Christina while standing at the door with two glasses of
Only then did Gina look up from the paper she was working on and smiled. “No. Come in.”
“It’s late now. It’s better to just drink water,” explained Christina. Caffeinated drinks like coffee and tea. could refresh one’s mind, but they could also keep one awake the whole night, causing one to lose sleep.
While Christina placed the glass on the table, she spotted the design draft presented on the tablet from the corner of her eye. It was incomplete, but one could tell it was drawn by someone with a great foundation.
As expected from someone who holds the position of a director.
Christina’s eyes sparkled. “You sure are great at hiding your skills, Ms. Tanner. I can’t wait to see your work when it’s completed.”
Smiling, Gina responded, “You’re pretty impressive yourself, too. Keep up the good work.”
“Thank you, Ms. Tanner. I’ll let you continue with your work.” Christina walked out and shut the door behind her.
Gina’s eyes glimmered as she watched Christina leave. At first, it was Nathaniel who asked Gina to look out for Christina, who was a newbie.
After a few interactions with Christina, however, Gina began to realize the former was not as weak as

In fact, Gina believed Christina could overcome every difficulty on her own, even without Nathaniel interfering and helping her behind the scenes.
After having worked like a dog for a week, Christina lay in bed during the weekend to read up on the latest fashion news. Right then, a housekeeper knocked on the door.
“Mrs. Hadley, Mr. Hadley would like you to get changed and wait for him.”
Hearing that, Christina sat up and picked up her phone that was charging on the side. To her surprise, the screen was flooded with notifications of missed calls from Nathaniel.
She could picture his scowling face even though they weren’t together at that moment.
“Tell him I’ll get ready.”
With that, she put her phone down, scurried into the changing room, changed into a light pink dress, and combed her hair in front of the mirror.
The moment she went downstairs, she saw Nathaniel car parked in front of the entrance.
As she walked over, Sebastian opened the door.
She hopped into the car and smiled sweetly. “Where are we going, Darling?”
She spoke ingratiatingly, for she knew she had angered him.
Nathaniel tucked her hair behind her ear, exposing her youthful and innocent face under the light. She looked radiant and adorable.
“It’s Grandma’s birthday today. We’re going to Yorksland,” he said plainly.
It’s Old Mrs. Hadley’s birthday?
As far as Christina remembered, the old lady had always lived in seclusion. Rumor had it that she had an unpredictable temper.
Christina glared at him, complaining. “Why didn’t you say sooner? I prepared nothing. It’ll be so awkward if I go there empty-handed. Sebastian, turn around and go to the mall now. I need to buy at gift for her. I’m sure Grandma has everything she needs, but it’s not right for her granddaughter-in-law to show up without a gift.”
Nathaniel smiled upon seeing her serious expression and tousled her hair affectionately.
The next thing she knew, she felt a warm and soft sensation on her forehead.
Nathaniel kissed her gently, his warm breath enveloping her.
“You don’t have to worry about that. I’ve already prepared the gift for you. You just need to say it’s from you.”
Christina nodded obediently. Nothing would go wrong since Nathaniel was the one who prepared the gift.
“Get some sleep. It’ll take a while for us to arrive at Yorksland,” Nathaniel said softly while embracing
Hearing that, Christina curled up like a lazy kitten and nestled against his chest while humming softly in acknowledgment.
Listening to his powerful heartbeat and feeling his slender arms wrapped tightly around her waist, Christina felt as if she had all the best things on earth.
A few minutes into the peaceful drive, she fell asleep.
