She only took a few steps before Nathaniel caught up with her in the car. “Get into the car, Christina”
Wearing a gloomy look, she glanced around, searching for a taxi. Although she did not argue with him a moment ago because the kids were present, that did not mean she had relented.
Seeing how she was completely ignoring him, Nathaniel had no choice but to stop the car and chase after her.
Effortlessly catching up to her, he grabbed her. His body, which exuded a daunting aura, towered over her. “Be a good girl and get into the car if you don’t want me to carry you into the car in public.”
“I won’t get in your car even if I have to walk back, snapped Christina, behaving just like a hissing cat whose tail had been stepped on.
At that moment, a taxi approached from the left side, and she immediately waved her hand at the vehicle.
Nathaniel temples throbbed when he saw how Christina was completely ignoring her. It would be a piece. of cake for him to lift Christina onto his shoulders, and since she refused to listen to him, he was left with no choice but to resort to force.
Before Christina had a chance to react, she was hauled onto Nathaniel’s shoulder. Her petite frame posed no difficulty for him to do that at all. In response, she widened her eyes in shock.
He opened the passenger door and placed her in the front seat before fastening her seatbelt for her.
Exhausted. Christina raised her hand and gently massaged her temples. Since all her efforts were futile, she stopped trying.
Nathaniel then got into the driver’s seat and drove back to the office.
On the way there, he stole glances at Christina’s attire. Her black shirt complemented her fair skin well, giving her an attractive yet mysterious aura. The only downside was that the outfit was too revealing
Her arms and fair legs were exposed, and he didn’t like that one bit.
When they passed a breakfast restaurant, Nathaniel stopped the car and stepped out.
Thinking that he was going to buy some breakfast since he hadn’t eaten, Christina paid him no heed.
She checked her email on her phone to kill time, and soon, Nathaniel returned with a cup of coffee and handed it to Christina.
“Hold this for me.”
Though reluctant, Christina knew it was dangerous for him to drive while holding the cup. Hence, she took it from him and continued scrolling through her phone.
Nathaniel continued driving. The car quickly arrived at the company’s underground parking lot. However, he slammed on the brakes abruptly when he was reversing, causing both of them to jolt.
Half of the coffee splashed out of the cup that Christina was holding. As the liquid dripped down her skirt, the entire car was filled with the smell of coffee.
Christina was rendered speechless as she looked at the stains on her new skirt.
Chapter 444 Planned In Advance
Nathaniel said calmly. “I’ll buy you a new one as compensation.”
Christina was seething with anger. With the corner of her lips twitching slightly, she handed Nathamel the cup of coffee and got out of the car.
The day had barely begun, yet she was already covered in the smell of coffee. In fact, she was starting to wonder if Nathaniel was intentionally taking revenge against her because she did not cook breakfast for
Luckily, I have a few spare clothes in the office. Christina entered the elevator.
As soon as the elevator doors opened, she strode out briskly and saw Sebastian walking out. “Mrs. Hadley, I’ve placed the clothes on your desk. You can request a size change if they don’t fit.”
A confused look crossed Christina’s eyes.
The clothes were already delivered the moment I entered the elevator? This is clearly planned in advance,
Sebastian left hurriedly before she could respond.
Christina entered the office lounge, changed into a different outfit, and placed the stained dress into a bag. Worried that the coffee would stink if left unattended till the end of the day, she asked Rayne to bring the skirt to a laundry shop.
When she returned to her desk, she spotted the dress that Sebastian had brought and placed it aside.
She immersed herself in her work after sorting out the documents on her desk. Time passed quickly when one was fully engrossed in something. It wasn’t until her phone rang and interrupted her that she stopped what she was doing.
“I’m at your office building. Let’s talk.” Yerek’s deep voice rang out.
Christina couldn’t stop thinking about what he had done. She had always been trying to find an opportunity to get the goods on him. If possible, she hoped she could find evidence pertaining to the arson he committed.
As such, she would proactively find ways to approach Yerek even if he did not come to her.
“Okay,” replied Christina before ending the call.
Five minutes later, Christina walked out of the entrance and saw Yerek’s car parked by the roadside.
The car drove off after she walked over and sat in the passenger seat.
Yerek appeared relaxed as he asked leisurely. “Do you want to eat something or have coffee?”
“I didn’t come to meet you because I want to eat. Just cut to the chase,” replied Christina coldly.
Ignoring her words, Yerek said, “But I’m hungry, Let’s eat at the restaurant in front.”
Soon, the car stopped in front of a restaurant. Yerek turned to look at her as a teasing smile played on his lips. “What? Are you waiting for me to unbuckle your seatbelt?”
Christina rolled her eyes in annoyance before opening the car door and getting out.
Chapter 444 Planned In Advance
The two of them entered the restaurant and sat at a discreet spot. The waiter then approached them. Yerck flipped through the menu and ordered a lot of food.
Christina, who did not plan to stay for long, only ordered a glass of water.
The waiter then left with the menu.
Instead of beating around the bush, Christina asked directly, “Why did you look for me?”
Yerck proposed straightforwardly. “Do you want to take back everything that rightfully belongs to you from the Gibson family? Let’s join forces.”
The Gibson family was quite prominent in Hallsbay, enjoying a status almost as privileged as the Hadley family.
Just having over one-tenth of their shares would be enough to ensure that one’s future generations could live a luxurious and worry-free life in the city,
Christina scoffed, “You’ve miscalculated. I’m not interested in the Gibson family’s money.
Her life was stable now and she could support herself with her own abilities. There was no need for her to get involved in the Gibson family’s mess.
Gazing at the man in front of her, she felt somewhat irked. He replaced me and grew up showered by love, Having enjoyed a pampered life, he cruded a noble air. Though he’s not the legitimate heir, he has the audacity to se? his sights on the Gibson family’s assets.
Yerek did not reveal any signs of displeasure on his face and said calmly, “I did not calculate anything. Dad set some share transfer conditions a long time ago.”
“Dad set the conditions?” A surprised glint flashed across Christina’s eyes.
Yerek said, “If the two of us don’t get married, Mom’s shares would automatically be transferred to Gibson Corporation. Neither of us would get anything.”
A frosty look surfaced in Christina’s eyes as her lips curled into a smirk. Marrying Yerck was the last thing she would do.
“Transfer them, then. I don’t care about the shares, said Christina with a firm, unwavering look in her
Yerek seemed to have already predicted her reaction and made a plan in advance. “Fine, you don’t care about the shares, but have you thought about Dad? The Gibson Corporation was established through his hard work. Yet, after he got injured, Uncle Timothy stole his position in the company
