Emilia didn’t expect the tables to turn so drastically, and she was surprised to learn that someone had recorded a video of what she was doing in the club.
The endorsement deals she had just signed were canceled shortly after the fiasco, and Radiant Corporation also demanded she returned eighty percent of the endorsement fee she received.
To Emilia’s dismay, the deals she had worked so hard for were all gone.
Enraged, Emilia sobbed and called Miranda to complain, “Mom, Christina doesn’t give a hoot about me! She took an outsider’s side and bullied me!”
At that moment, Miranda was panicking because she had just seen the news on the internet. Emilia was so close to stardom, but Christina just had to mess things up!
“It took me quite an effort to calm your dad down, so it isn’t wise to cause a ruckus now,” Miranda said helplessly.
“What am I supposed to do, then? Are you asking me to swallow this anger?” Emilia thundered. If even Mom is too afraid to oppose that brat, she’ll only become even more arrogant!
Miranda’s gaze darkened, and she said cunningly, “No. I’ll avenge you this time!”
Christina arrived home that night and browsed the news while sitting on the couch.
Although she wasn’t in the entertainment industry, she enjoyed watching celebrities on the red carpets to see the gowns those celebrities wore.
Obviously, as a designer, she was very intrigued by the gowns.
Right then, she heard the sound of a car engine from outside.
Christina’s eyes lit up, and she immediately got up from the couch and ran out.
The moment Nathaniel alighted from his car, she threw herself at him.
Christina’s scent warmed his heart at once.
While leaning against his chest, Christina said coyly, “You’re back, Darling!”
They had both been hard–pressed recently, so they hadn’t seen each other in five days.
Nathaniel’s hostile and frightening demeanor faded instantly when Christina appeared. He wrapped his arm around her slender waist and led her into the house..
“Have you had your dinner?” he asked in an alluring tone.
Christina shook her heard aggrievedly. “I haven’t.”
Upon hearing that, Nathaniel shot Raymond a cold look.
Raymond was so frightened that he felt his knees going weak. “Mrs. Hadley said she wanted to have dinner with you. The cooks have already prepared the dishes, but Mrs. Hadley said she wanted to wait for your return. The chefs also made some snacks to prevent Mrs. Hadley from going hungry. Mrs. Hadley has just finished a plate of macaroons a few minutes before your arrival,” he quickly explained.
As soon as those words fell, Christina burped and glared at Raymond. Why did he say that? I’ll be too embarrassed to eat more for dinner later!
However, there was nothing Raymond could do. If he didn’t explain himself, Nathaniel might blame them for not looking after Christina.
Upon hearing the explanation, Nathaniel caressed Christina’s check and said, “Tell the chefs to prepare whatever you want to cat. If you don’t eat more, you’ll become skinny.”
Silence ensued in the living room right away because everyone was staring at Christina.
Others might not know it, but Rayniond and the housekeepers were all aware of Christina’s appetite. Mrs. Hadley never had trouble eating full meals, and we’ve also stocked up the living room, study, and bedroom with snacks. Does she really need more food? Everyone here knows how much Mr. Hadley pampers Mrs. Hadley. Heck, they’re always displaying their affection for each other publicly!
After dinner, Nathaniel went to the study. The project they had was about to get started, so all the necessary documents must be prepared before the start of construction.
It was undoubtedly taxing to go through the thick stack of documents.
Sebastian had two cups of coffee beforehand, but he was dozing off in the late hours of the night..
“You can leave first,” Nathaniel said.
Sebastian shook his head in response. “I’m all right. We still have so many documents to-”
He was interrupted by Nathaniel’s warning gaze,
He knew Nathaniel well enough to know that Nathaniel didn’t want him to stay if he couldn’t focus. If he were to stay, he could end up making a mistake instead.
“Okay. I’ll go home first, then,” Sebastian said.
After Sebastian left, Nathaniel remained in his seat as he went through the documents.
He only went back to the bedroom to take a shower at the break of dawn.
Standing under the hot running water, he felt refreshed once his muscles were relaxed.
When Nathaniel was walking out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist, Christina bumped into his muscular chest.
“Ouch…” Christina whimpered.
Nathaniel grabbed her hand and wrapped his other arm around her waist immediately. “Where did it
Christina was still half asleep. When she saw his muscular chest the moment she opened her couldn’t help but gasp. She caught a whiff of his masculine scent.
The air was filled with steam, so her vision was rather blurry.
Isn’t it a bit too early for such a sensual atmosphere?
Christina’s cheeks reddened. “I’m fine. Perhaps you should put on a shirt first.”
Nathaniel hummed in response and left.
When Christina came out of the bathroom, Nathaniel already had a shirt on.
He was wearing a tailored and slim–fitting shirt, and he was answering the phone with one hand and buttoning the buttons with the other. With the sunlight shining in from the opposite direction and falling on his body, he looked utterly handsome.
Christina walked up to him to help him button his shirt and put on a tie that matched his trousers.
“Got it,” he said to the person on the other end of the call and hung up the phone.
“Are you leaving already?” Christina stood on tiptoe and folded his collar for him.
“Yes. The driver will send you to your office later.” Nathaniel brushed her fringe aside and kissed her forehead.
Christina nodded. Before she could say a word, she was kissed on the lips.
Upon arriving at Radiant Corporation, Christina prepared her documents as usual and attended the meeting.
Since Zachary had already settled the issue concerning the endorsement deal, the company’s performance was on track to meet that year’s target. It was estimated that the target could be reached by the end of the year.
In order to reward the employees, Zachary wanted to hold an outing to help everyone loosen up.
The Public Relations Department would be responsible for deciding on the location.
After the meeting, Christina went back to Team B to find Miranda sitting in her office.
“Why are you here?” Christina frowned. I bet something bad is about to happen.
Miranda snorted coldly and walked up to Christina to size her up.
“You’re doing well, aren’t you? Have you been doing so well that you’ve forgotten about your mother?” Miranda sneered. This brat was merely a server in a bar back then! Yet, she has her own office now. She deserves none of this!
Christina narrowed her eyes and shot Miranda a cold glance. “Do you really consider yourself my mother? You’ll get struck by lightning for saying such nonsense!”
