Chapter 666 I Will Remember This Forever
Since the office building was right next to Hadley Corporation, he would be able to pick her up and drop her off anytime. Only by having her nearby where he could keep an eye on her would he feel asured
“I know your fashion studio is looking for a new office space. How about moving into the same office building as Gibson Corporation? When you’re further along in your pregnancy, you won’t have to travel back and forth. By that time, I’ll have Sebastian manage the company for you and share the workload, Nathaniel suggested.
Nathaniel was gradually luring Christina into his plan.
After a brief moment of contemplation, Christina nodded. “Okay, I’ll have the secretary issue a notice about the company relocation and make the necessary arrangements today.”
“Let’s have breakfast first. I’ll drive you to the company, Nathaniel offered, his eyes glinting victoriously.
After breakfast, he accompanied her to Gibson Corporation.
While it looked like Nathaniel was there to accompany her on the surface, in reality, it was a disguised form of supervision. Christina had been busy for less than half an hour when he ordered her to take a break
As time went by, Christina’s work fell into Nathaniel’s hands, and he reviewed and handled everything for her.
Eventually, all Christina was tasked with was to eat and drink to her heart’s content. Eventually, she lay down on the sofa and fell asleep. Nathaniel then brought her to the lounge so she could rest well
When a secretary came in to deliver some documents and saw Nathaniel handling work on Christina’s chair, she thought she had walked into the wrong company. She stared at Nathaniel at the office entrance for a while.
When Nathaniel noticed the burning gaze directed at him, he raised his head. “Do you need something?”, he asked the secretary.
The secretary walked in with the documents, her eyes scanning the surroundings. When she couldn’t find Christina, she opened her mouth to ask, but Nathaniel spoke first. “She’s resting in the lounge. Put the documents down; I’ll take care of them.”
“Okay.” The secretary quickly left the documents and exited the office while glancing at Nathaniel warily.
In the span of a morning, chaos erupted within the company. Rumors suggesting that Gibson Corporation was going to have a change in its successor were all over the place. More outrageously, there was a rumor about a merger between Gibson Corporation and Hadley Corporation.
Christina slept until noon, unaware of everything. After she woke up, Nathaniel took her out for hunch
Christina was about to leave the restroom after cleaning her coat when she was startled by Anya’s sudden appearance
Anya, who used to be radiant, now looked pale and resembled a vengeful ghost. No amount of delicate makeup could hide the wounds on her face.
Her expression was vicious. She looked like she was about to pounce on Christina and bite her neck in the next second.
I Will Remember This Forever
Christina instinctively took a step back while watching Anya warily. “What do you want?”
Anya let out a hoarse and unpleasant laugh. Licking her dry lips, she said, “I regret not killing you directly last night, Christina. I shouldn’t have pushed you down the stairs. I should have stabbed your heart with a knife!”
After being caught by Sebastian and given a painful lesson, she almost didn’t make it back alive.
She would remember this grudge forever!
“Seems like you haven’t learned your lesson, Anya Gibson. Do you need another one?” Christina glared at her coldly. “You won’t be so lucky every time.”
Anya suddenly looked around skittishly. After ensuring that no one was heading toward the restroom, she closed the door behind her.
Step by step, she approached Christina, her eyes locked on Christina’s abdomen beneath the latter’s loose dress.
“You’re pregnant, aren’t you?” Anya’s eyes flickered with madness. “Tell me, what do you think Nathaniel’s reaction will be if I get rid of the child in your belly?”
Christina shielded her abdomen with her hands as she continued to retreat. Then, with a jolt, she realized that she had no more room when her back pressed against the wall.
“He will definitely kill you.”
Anya smiled nonchalantly. “It’s worth dying if I can take someone down with me.”
With that said, she pulled out a fruit knife from her waist and swung it toward Christina’s abdomen.
Christina dodged. As the fruit knife plunged into the spot where she had just been standing, she rushed into one of the cubicles and quickly locked the door from the inside.
She patted her pocket anxiously.
Oh no! I didn’t bring my phone with me!
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Anya kicked the door frantically while spewing vulgarities.
“Don’t hide from me like a coward, Christina! Let’s settle this face-to-face!”
