After a brief moment, Yerek and Anya saw Christina fall unconscious through the translucent glass door. They exchanged a glance and shared a wicked smile.
“This drug will knock her out for the whole night,” Yerek snickered.
Anya smirked and replied. “Has the guy arrived? Get him to do the necessary preparations. We need to make sure everything is flawless.”
“Wait until the drug smell dissipates before letting him in,” Yerek instructed.
“Just imagine what will happen tomorrow morning when everyone comes to work and sees Christina and a strange man in the office, looking disheveled. She will be utterly embarrassed.” After pondering all night, the idea suddenly struck Anya.
Nothing hits harder than losing one’s reputation. Christina is definitely going to learn the true meaning of humiliation!
After the drug smell had mostly dissipated in the office twenty minutes later, Yerek had the male model walk into the room. “Remember to make it look real, but don’t make any body
While such situations could be fabricated, it’s crucial not to go overboard. The consequences would be severe, especially considering Christina was still married to Nathaniel.
The male model nodded and went into the room.
To ensure everything went according to plan, Anya took the precaution of locking the door, leaving Christina with no means of escape.
Meanwhile, Nathaniel and Christina had agreed to meet at the hotel, but the designated time. had passed, and the latter hadn’t shown up.
Based on his understanding of Christina, she was not the type to disregard punctuality.
He dialed her number, and though the call connected, there was no response.
When he called again ten minutes later, she still did not pick up the phone. Sebastian reached out to Christina’s assistant, Lina, who conveyed the situation to both of them.
After hearing the details, Nathaniel couldn’t help but feel that there was more to the situation than met the eye.
He immediately stood up and ordered, “Get the car!”
Sebastian didn’t dare waste another second and did as he was told.
The morning light poured in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, illuminating the office.
Early in the morning. Anya summoned the entire staff to assemble at the CEO’s office entrance. She withheld the purpose behind the gathering but issued a stern warning of potential consequences for those who failed to comply.
Soon, the CEO’s office was filled with people who were bustling with anticipation before the workday began, yet none could decipher the purpose behind their gathering.
With a smile adorning her face, Anya approached the crowd. “Did everyone manage to catch a glimpse inside?”
What’s happening inside?
“Ms. Gibson, what are you talking about? We don’t understand,” someone asked. They had been called in early in the morning just to see an empty office.
Anya walked through the crowd and approached the door. As she looked inside, her eyes
Why is the office empty? Christina fainted last night, and the door was locked from the inside. There was no way she could have gotten out, right? Could she be inside the dressing room?
Excitement surged within Anya once more, prompting her to swiftly retrieve the key. She attempted to unlock the door, only to find the lock resistant to her efforts.
Perplexed, Anya frowned and muttered, “This is weird. Is the lock broken?”
Just then, the sound of footsteps echoed from behind as Christina strode into the room, dressed in a sophisticated business suit and elegant heels. Her eyes locked onto Anya’s face. “Why the early morning greetings, everyone?”
The crowd’s faces turned pale, equally puzzled by the unexpected summons from Anya.
They turned to Anya and asked, “Ms. Gibson, why did you summon us here?”
widened in shock as she wondered when Christina managed to slip away.
Met with questioning glances, she growled in frustration, “Never mind, everyone, just go back to your offices and get to work.”
The crowd wore awkward expressions, bewildered by the sudden summons from Anya.
Christina approached the door, casting a disdainful glance at the key in Anya’s hand. “Having trouble opening it? I changed the door last night.”
A tremor flickered in Anya’s eyes as she struggled to comprehend how Christina managed to
Christina closed in on Anya with a menacing gaze. “Do you honestly think your tactics are impressive, Anya Gibson? Whatever you’ve done to me, I will repay in full,” she hissed.
Next, she took out the key and opened the door effortlessly. She made sure to slam it loudly behind her as she entered.
Once Christina settled into her seat, she found herself unable to shake the memory of the heart-stopping events from the previous night. She had arranged to meet Nathaniel, but she failed to show up. Her absence prompted Nathaniel to become increasingly worried and, ultimately, came to her rescue.
Without his help, she would have become the laughingstock of the entire company this morning. In fact, she might have even been labeled as shameless!
A glint of coldness flickered in Christina’s eyes. Initially, she thought Anya would only resort to petty tricks, and she never expected her to be so brazen to make personal attacks.
Just then, Lina knocked on the door and entered the room with some breakfast.
“How did you know I haven’t eaten breakfast?” Christina asked.
“I’m not sure. It was delivery,” Lina replied before leaving the room.
Just then, the phone rang. It was a call from Nathaniel.
“You skipped breakfast today and hurriedly went to work. Is work more important than your health?”
If those words were uttered on any ordinary day, Christina would have felt infuriated, perceiving him as overbearing and irritating. However, today was different. As she listened to his reproachful tone, she found herself unable to muster even a hint of anger.
“I won’t be able to finish all the food. Why did you prepare so much?” She chuckled and took a sip of yogurt.
Nathaniel grumbled with displeasure, “Haven’t you seen how much weight you’ve lost? Has the Gibson family been starving you?”
“Nonsense, they haven’t.”
It had been a long time since they spoke so lightheartedly.
“We’ll have dinner together tonight and sign the contract.” Nathaniel’s voice regained its usual calmness.
After hanging up the phone, Christina felt a large part of her recent melancholy had dissipated.
She had been busy the whole morning, dedicating almost all her energy to the projects that Anya had previously handled. None of the monetary figures in the documents were clearly recorded.
Even though Anya had been living off the Gibson family and staying at their residence, she still had the audacity to steal money from them.
You aren’t deserving to be a Gibson, Anya.
As lunchtime approached, Christina packed up her things and left the office.
After staying in Hallsbay for some time, Christina decided to bring Sharon over. In order to keep her mother out of the internal conflicts within the Gibson family, she had arranged an apartment for her to live in.
The apartment was located near the company, and if Christina had free time during lunch, she would go there to have lunch and accompany her mother.
Christina drove away and soon arrived at the apartment. She unlocked the door with her fingerprint.
When Sharon heard the click of the door opening, she rushed over excitedly to pass Christina her sandals.
“Mom, I can handle these trivial matters myself. You should head in. Oh, there are guests at home?” Christina noticed a pair of men’s shoes, which seemed somewhat familiar.
Sharon smiled and replied, “There are no guests. My son-in-law is here.”
As Christina lifted her gaze, she locked eyes with Nathaniel, whose intense black gaze bore into hers. He wore a smug smile as if asserting his dominance.
