Chapter 636 Competition
Nathaniel was always willing to fulfill Christina’s request. “What is it?”
Sitting in his embrace, Christina hugged his neck. “Apparently, the entertainment company Emilia signed a contract with is an entity under the flag of Hadley Corporation.” I’ve already done my homework and investigated everything about Emilia’s team.
Nathaniel waited for her to continue.
“Can I borrow the position of that company’s CEO for a few days?” Worried that Nathaniel wouldn’t agree to her request, she added, “I won’t affect the company’s operation. Emilia has always been very competitive; she’ll fight over anything with me. Now that she has gained fame, I want to be in control of her career.” This is the best way to get even with Emilia. The more she cares about something, the more I’ll trample on and snatch away that thing. It’s about time for us to end the grudge between us, anyway.
Affectionately, Nathaniel replied, “I thought you were going to ask me to search for a rare treasure when I saw you looking all serious. In any case, my answer is yes. It’s just the position of CEO in a mere entertainment company. Take it if you want. Even if you bankrupt it, I wouldn’t mind either. That company wasn’t generating substantial profit anyway.”
Christina thought her request was too outrageous and was nervous about it. After all, she knew nothing about the entertainment industry. She only wanted that position to fulfill her revenge.
Also, she had no clue about the entertainment company’s status and believed everything Nathaniel said about it. Later on, when she learned the truth, she wished she could invent a time machine to withdraw that ridiculous wish.
Nathaniel suggested, “I’ll ask Sebastian to lend you a hand. He used to be the general manager of that company, and he knows about the entertainment industry better than everyone.”
However, Christina didn’t want to bother Sebastian anymore. “There’s no need to trouble Mr. Taggart with this. Rayne used to be a fanatical celebrity fan. There are some affairs inconvenient for Mr. Taggart, a man, to handle. However, Rayne can deal with them.”
Nathaniel knitted his eyebrow, skeptical.
In response, Christina rubbed his eyebrows. “If I encounter any issues I can’t resolve, I’ll ask you for help, okay?”
Finally, a smile was set on Nathaniel’s countenance. “All right, but I have one condition.”
“What is it?”
“I don’t oppose your decision to work while pregnant. However, you must prioritize your health and safety above your plan. If I learn that you’re sent to the hospital again…” Nathaniel paused before a dangerous look swirled in his eyes. “I’ll immediately shut down your studio and lock you up in the house. You won’t be able to interact with anyone else but me.”
His overwhelming possessiveness grew apparent as an intimidating vibe surrounded him. Truthfully, Christina was afraid he would force her to yield. However, she also couldn’t resist his possessiveness.
Earnestly, she promised, “I swear I’ll inform you of my destination beforehand, no matter where I go.
Furthermore, I’ll bring the bodyguards you assigned me anywhere I go. Will that be enough to ease your worry?”
Nathaniel replied softly, “You know that I can’t afford to lose you. You and our children are my most precious treasure.“
Upon hearing his sudden sweet nothings, she blushed. Embarrassed, she pulled his ears and roared, “Did you memorize those romance dictionaries behind my back again?”
“I used to, but I don’t anymore because when I met you, I’d already mastered the art,” bragged Nathaniel.
Christina left his body and headed to the bed. “I’m drowsy, and I want to sleep for a while. Talk later.”
After that, she yanked her blanket away and subconsciously nudged to the side, patting the empty space beside her.
“It’s a bit cold in the ward. How about you keep me company for a while?” It was a clumsy excuse she devised to spend more intimate time with Nathaniel. After all, a high-end ward would definitely be equipped with a heater.
Upon removing his coat, he hugged her and lay on the bed with her. Joy danced in his eyes as he wrapped them both in the blanket. “Sleep. I’ll be right here with you.”
With him as her warm bolster, Christina fell asleep expeditiously. Concurrently, Sebastian executed Nathaniel’s plan and achieved incredible results in a short period.
Nigel didn’t receive his money from Winston as he had hoped. After Winston achieved independence, the successes he accomplished expanded his ambition.
When Winston heard Nigel’s last company was about to go bankrupt, he visited the latter with an acquisition contract
In response, Nigel almost shot Winston.
“You better think about your current situation clearly, Nigell If you use the money I’m acquiring your company with for investment, perhaps you’ll be able to rise again one day.” Winston was almost tempt to carve the words “You’re a piece of trash” on Nigel’s forehead. With a mocking tone, he continued, “Y don’t need to dwell on old debts. After all, back then, you secretly pocketed many benefits that originally belonged to me. What I’m doing now, I merely learned from you. If you are dissatisfied with it, well, there’s nothing you can do about it. After all, no one would vomit the delicious food they swallowed.”
If Nigel’s glare could kill, Winston would be dead already. “Keep dreaming! I rather my company be destroyed under my care than sell it to you!”
Winston had the gall to show off in Nigel’s territory because he was well prepared. “It’s fine. It’s not like I need to have your crappy company. I’m merely proposing you this offer because of our past relationship so you wouldn’t embarrass yourself too much.”
Gritting his teeth, Nigel growled, “Don’t get too cocky, Winston! We used to be in the same boat. When I’m not doing well, neither will you. Don’t forget that you’re one of the co-conspirators who set up the Hadley family in the past. How long do you think it’ll take Nathaniel to figure out your connection to that incident?”
Winston’s smile froze before he glowered. “Are you going to sell me out?”
Then, he shrugged nonchalantly. “If your mother didn’t fuel the flames back then, Timothy wouldn’t have remained crippled after the accident. In the end, our relationship is a transactional one, and at this point, we’re through. If we do battle, you’ll end up with the worst outcome.”
Nigel thundered, “Shut up! Don’t bring up what happened in the past!”
“What’s the matter? Are you afraid someone will overhear our conversation? I suppose if Timothy and Christina learn what I’ve said, there will be dire consequences for you. Not only will your mother lose her position in the Gibson family, but you’ll also lose the one person who can manipulate Barnaby. Should that future come to pass, you’ll forever be branded as an illegitimate child.”
Suddenly, the screen behind Nigel collapsed, bewildering the men.
