Tightening her grip on the gift box, Christina wondered if she should knock on the door or just stand there and wait.
No matter which option she chose, it would still seem weird.
At that moment, she wanted nothing more than to have a door and run away from the current awkward situation.
All of a sudden, Christina felt a strong force on her arm. Her irises shrank in shock. Before she could react to it, she had been pulled away.
The loud thud of the door reached her ears, and the next second, she was held against the back of the door.
Francis charming face filled Christina’s vision. His eyes were so alluring that they could seduce a person’s soul.
Curling his lips, Francis stretched out his slender arm and pressed it against the door, keeping Christina within his reach. “Don’t you think this is fate? I’m only starting to miss you, and you’re here.”
Christina was calm as if she had gotten immune to his sweet nothings. Holding up the gift box, she said, “It’s just a coincidence. Don’t think too much about it.”
After they parted ways in Hallsbay, they had never seen each other again.
Francis had gotten hurt because of her at the show last time. On the other hand, she was swamped with work after that, so she felt slightly guilty that she had almost forgotten about that matter.
Fixing his eyes on her head, he asked with concern, “Have you recovered from your head injury?”
Christina blinked her eyes. “How did you know I was hurt?” Before Francis could explain anything, she came to the realization and asked. “You had someone stalking me?”
At the thought that someone had been keeping an eye on her, Christina was extremely displeased that she stamped on his shoe.
Francis let out a muffled sound and released her arm.
“I didn’t, nor do I need to do so. I have my ways of knowing your matters.”
Christina suddenly thought of the ambiguous relationship between Madison and Francis. Perhaps it was Madison who told him about what happened to Christina.
Thinking about that, Christine was even more disgruntled.
Madison and Francis were her enemies.
Holding the gift box in her arms, she scoffed. “I don’t want to get close to you when you’re with that crafty woman Madison.”
Francis folded his arms across his chest and grinned evilly. “Are you jealous?”
My foot! Christina couldn’t help cursing inwardly. How could she possibly be jealous of her brother–in–law?
“I don’t care what’s your relationship with Madison. It’s just that I don’t like being around complicated people. You’d better not think about hurting Nathaniel, or I won’t let you off!”
She didn’t tell Nathaniel about it because she felt that everything was just her guess at the moment.
If it happened for real one day, she would not watch them hurt Nathaniel and do nothing.
Francis had expected it. However, upon hearing how Christina was so defensive of Nathaniel, he still felt his heart sting.
His eyes glinted, but he pretended like he didn’t care about what she said. “I told you that I’m just friends with her. Oh, yea. I want to ask you to make my mom a gown.”
That was a sudden diversion of the topic. Christina didn’t know what to say for a moment. She didn’t want to have anything to do with Linda.
Francis seemed to guess what was on her mind. He curled his lips in a hostile manner. “I’ve helped you even when I was hurt the last time. You should return the favor to me, shouldn’t you? Moreover, you’re my sister–in–law.”
The way he said “sister–in–law” was filled with ridicule.
Christina had no reason to refuse him. “Okay. I have the address. I’ll go there tomorrow.”
Bobbing his head in satisfaction, Francis said, “Make it red. Next month is my mom’s birthday.”
He would send several gifts to his mother every year. Previously, he had heard her saying that Christina’s designing skills were good.
“All right. Take the gown as my gift to her.” Christina’s expression softened a little.
She didn’t do that to please Linda but to return Francis the favor.
Right then, she heard the next door open. Looks like the man who is dating Gwyneth has left.
“I’m leaving now. I need to send the dress.” With the gift box in her hands, she turned around and left.
Francis watched Christina slowly walk out of his sight. The amiable expression on his face turned cold in
When Christina entered the room, she saw two additional assistants helping Gwyneth with the clothes.
Luckily there was someone else. If she were there alone with Gwyneth, the atmosphere would be awkward.
“Ms. Lawson, your dress is ready. Please take a look and see if everything is all right.” Christina put the gift box on the table.
Gwyneth side–eyed her and thought that Christina wasn’t someone with a big mouth. Hence, she didn’t need to worry even if Christina had seen the scene earlier.
She took out the slim–fit, high–slit dress that was designed according to her
“It’s so pretty. I can’t wait to wear it for the wedding ceremony,” Gwyneth said with a charming smile while fixing her eyes on the dress.
She was beautiful. Her eyes were big and her face was delicate. With makeup on, her charisma was exactly that of a superstar.
Such an alluring beauty was born to be in the entertainment industry.
The design of this dress is very bold. If Gwyneth were to wear it for the wedding ceremony, she would definitely outshine the bride.
“If there’s no problem, please drop your signature,”
Christina took out a receipt and handed it to her. After signing it, Gwyneth told her assistant to give Christina a check to settle the rest of the payment.
“Thank you. It’s a pleasure working with you.” Looking at the amount written on the check, Christina was a little pumped up.
After all, that was her first salary in her name.
Gwyneth smiled. “I hope you won’t refuse to cooperate with me next time.”
Her motive was simple. She wanted to cooperate with her again.
Back then, Gwyneth was jealous of Christina’s talent, but she acknowledged Christina’s skills later.
As someone who paid attention to trends, if the other party could bring benefits to her, she wouldn’t see them as enemies. Instead, she would turn them into friends.
Christina understood her. “Of course. The price you offer me is very good. How will I refuse to earn big bucks?”
Gwyneth was delighted. “I like your shrewdness.”
“I’ll take my leave now.” Christina smiled faintly. Her sweet face resembled a flower that had received an abundance of sunlight.
After leaving the film crew, Christina told Bailey about the happy news right away.
“I’ll treat you to a meal to pay you back for going everywhere for me.”
“At least you have a conscience.”
When she was done speaking on the phone, Christina hailed a taxi to head over to meet up with Bailey at the pizza joint.
Recently, Bailey had been a great help to her when it came to the details of the studio. Bailey suggested. adding a special logo to the gift boxes to enhance their exclusiveness.
After a round of discussion, they made up their minds on the design of the gift box. Bailey even chose a coffee brewing kit for her to entertain the customers. Moreover, she also bought a couch and some work desks.
With that, the studio finally looked more like one. Customers would feel amazed by its stunning ambiance.
When Christina was working on the design drawing in her studio during the day, her phone rang. She picked it up without checking to see who it was.
“Christina, I heard that you’re injured. Are you okay now?”
