“Are you saying someone intended to kill Granny and Mom?” Christina, whose brows were furrowed, plunged into deep thoughts.
“Or is it because your family had offended someone?” Francis was also baffled by the matter,
“That’s impossible,” answered Christina with resolution.
She knew very well what kind of person Evelyn and Sharon were. They certainly wouldn’t be on bad terms with someone.
“If we want to get to the bottom of this, we can only investigate the Gibson family.” Francis gazed at the calm look on her face and couldn’t figure out what was on her mind.
Suddenly, Christina raised her eyes and saw him staring at her with slanted eyes. “That’s it?”
“That’s all I managed to find out,” stated Francis honestly.
Christina mocked, “This little information is certainly not worth me signing a contract.”
“You’ve signed it anyway and can’t change your mind now. We’ll start working after fifteen minutes, You can rest for a while.” A half-smile hung on his face.
After saying that, he stood up and walked away.
It must be because Christina didn’t sleep well last night that she seemed slightly deprived of sleep now.
Music started playing in the quiet room. She fell asleep while leaning on the couch while listening to the slow melody.
When she woke up, she realized she had overslept.
Why didn’t Francis wake me up?
After going downstairs, Christina saw Francis, who had put on make-up but had yet to change his clothes.
“No need to hurry. Take your time.”
Several people around Christina turned to her and began to b*tch about her.
How dare she let Mr. Fernando wait for her. I’ve never seen a stylist so full of herself
She’s simply taking Mr. Fernando’s patience for granted to act as she pleases.
Christina had no intention of explaining anything and scowled at Francis.
She walked over to the wardrobe, picked the outfits to match them, and worked until nighttime.
“There will be a fashion show later. Come with me so I can introduce you to some famous people in the industry.” Francis appeared behind Christina without making a sound.
“I still have things to do. Besides, there’s no term in the agreement saying I must accompany you to social
Christina declined his request frankly. For some reason, she felt very tired today.
“All right. Head home early to rest after you finish work
After the staff hastily packed the stuff, they swarmed around Francis and left with him.
After tidying the clothes he had worn earlier, Christina placed them in the storeroom and walked out the
Nathaniel’s car was waiting for her at the entrance instead of the car she rode here this morning.
It was difficult to hail a taxi in the high end residential area.
Thus, Christina had no choice but to get into the car.
Then, the car drove away.
Nathaniel’s hand was propped against the car window. He rested his temple on the back of his hand while reading the document in his hand with his eyes lowered. “Put these on.”
It was not until then that Christina noticed the branded shopping bag containing a dress and high heels beside her foot.
“Where are we going?”
“I don’t want to go.”
Nathaniel put away the documents in his hands while his gaze shifted to the stubborn look on her small face. “Get changed, or I’ll help you do that.”
His tone was very firm, leaving her no choice.
Christina regretted so much for taking care of him last night. Now that he has recovered, he is giving me a hard
Seeing her remain unmoved, Nathaniel simply raised his hand to remove her coat, exposing her fair and tender shoulder.
His gesture made Christina’s hair stand on end like a frightened cat. Panicked, she uttered. “I’ll do it myself.”
Only then did Nathaniel was willing to let go of her hand. The driver then rolled
up the partition.
Half an hour later, they arrived at the banquet’s entrance.
“Mr. Hadley, we’re very honored to have you attend tonight’s dinner,” said Frank, who organized the
He ran a fashion company that owned several famous clothing brands nationwide.
“May I know who is this lady?” A woman who came with Mr. Hadley must be high-status. I must get to know her.
“She’s my wife.”
A glint flashed in Frank’s eyes. “So you’re Mrs. Hadley. What a coincidence. Some fashion designers are also here today. Why don’t I introduce you to them?”
Nathaniel nodded faintly.
Frank left to look for the designers while Christina glared at Nathaniel from the side. Did he bring me here today so that I can make new connections?
After a short while, Frank returned with two famous designers in the industry and introduced them to Christina.
As designers who shared the same interests, they got along well and got acquainted quickly, saved each other’s contacts, and even agreed to go to an exhibition together.
“We’ve invited a new ambassador to showcase the latest menswear tonight. Please let me know if there is any to your liking, Mr. Hadley.” What mattered the most to Frank now was a collaboration with Hadley. Corporation.
If Hadley Corporation invested in his company, the business would surely boost.
“I will keep an eye out,” said Nathaniel calmly.
Right then, music started playing on the stage at the front while some tall and slender male models. dressed in the latest menswear walked out.
Everyone had their gazes fixated on the stage.
The menswear collection had pretty decent tailoring and design, while the outfit matching looked stylish.
“Look. It’s Francis Fernando.”
“It’s really him. Let’s ask for his autograph backstage later!”
“Oh, my dream man…”
Hearing the familiar name, Christina shifted her gaze to the front. Francis’ appearance on the stage instantly outshined the other male models.
It turned out that the event Francis mentioned earlier happened to be here..
They exchanged glances. When he saw her, the surprised look in his eyes was apparent, but it quickly disappeared.
After Francis finished cat walking and got off the stage, many women surrounded him, requesting to take pictures with him and have his autograph.
He fulfilled their wishes. After taking some pictures, the people around him dispersed.
Francis walked up to Christina. “Didn’t you say you were tired? Why didn’t you head home after getting off work?”
Before Christina could say a word, he shot Nathaniel a provocative look. “Someone must have forced you here against your will.”
“Stop it, warned Christina with a low voice.
Lately, every time Nathaniel and Francis met they always almost get into a fight.
Unaware of the relationship between the three of them, Frank grinned at the side and kept bringing up the cooperation. “Mr. Hadley, what do you think about the new menswear collection? Is it worth the investment?”
“They look nice, but the ambassador is awful. We’ll do business together on one condition-you someone else,” stated Nathaniel coldly.
Caught in a bind, Frank looked at the charming Francis. Everyone thinks he looks stunning. How come Mr. Hadley is still displeased?
“Sure. I’ll do as you wish.”
“Come to my office with the contract tomorrow.” After saying that, Nathaniel grabbed Christina’s hand and added. “We’ll take our leave first.”
“Okay. Goodbye, Mr. Hadley.”
As they walked toward the door, Francis ran after them.
