The Enigmatic Return novel Chapter 469

The next day, Neera packed a small suitcase and went on the flight to Skytopia with Jean and Ian.

The flight landed at Skytopia Airport two hours later.

Skytopia's climate was slightly colder than Kingsview. As soon as they stepped out of the plane, Neera subconsciously brought her arms together.

In the next moment, she felt a coat drape around her shoulders.

"It's pretty chilly here. Careful not to catch a cold."

Neera stared at Jean's handsome face, shocked. "Thank you."

"Don't mention it," Jean said matter-of-factly. "Let's go. The car is waiting."

Neera nodded. She clutched the coat and detected Jean's scent.

After leaving the airport, they went to check in at the hotel.

Neera's room was next to Jean's.

After settling down, Jean knocked on the door.

Neera saw that Jean was dressed in a formal shirt and tie, and she blinked when she realized how handsome he was. "Are we leaving already?"

"Mm. I've already told the people at the science park we'll be there in half an hour," Jean said.

"Alright, let's go."

Neera took her handbag and went downstairs with him.

Ian was waiting in the car at the hotel entrance. After the couple got in, he floored the gas pedal and went straight to their destination.

Twenty minutes later, when they arrived at the science park, Neera was shocked by what she saw.

The science park covered a vast area. The greenery was meticulously maintained, while the buildings looked high-tech. The stark contrast was stunning to behold.

Jean was also impressed by what he saw, though he did not show it on his face.

Ian introduced the place to them. "It took ten billion dollars to build this place. I've heard that most of the world's most advanced technologies can be found here."

"Wow!" Neera exclaimed. She was not very familiar with this place.

While they chatted, someone came out of one of the buildings to greet them.

He went up to them and said, "You must be Mr. Beauvort and Ms. Garcia. Nice to meet you. I'm Mr. Chaucer's assistant, and he asked me to bring you to his office."

"Nice to meet you, thank you," Jean replied. The group followed the assistant into the building. They entered the elevator and soon arrived at Mr. Chaucer's office.

Mr. Chaucer had been waiting for them. When he saw them enter the room, he immediately stood up and greeted them. "I've heard a lot about you, Mr. Beauvort! You too, Ms. Garcia. You are an outstanding individual."

"You flatter us, Mr. Chaucer," Jean said.

Neera smiled politely and said, "Nice to meet you, Mr. Chaucer."

Mr. Chaucer smiled warmly. "I've heard about what you've done in the field. You're so young yet so accomplished. As someone almost twice your age, I have to admit I'm ashamed of myself!"

"You're too humble, Mr. Chaucer. You're so much more accomplished than both of us combined," Neera said.

Jean smiled diplomatically. "You're too kind, Mr. Chaucer."

Even though he said so, his noble and assertive demeanor was undeniable.

After exchanging pleasantries, Mr. Chaucer brought them on a tour around the science park.

The science park consisted of a dozen buildings, each with its own purpose. It took them an entire afternoon to visit every building.

Soon, it was evening.

Ian glanced at his wristwatch and said, "It's almost dinner time, Mr. Chaucer. Mr. Beauvort has already made reservations at a restaurant. Won't you join us for a meal?"

Mr. Chaucer was quick to accept the invitation. "Haha, how am I supposed to say no?"

They went to the restaurant together.

On the way there, Neera considered that they would be having a few rounds of alcohol later.

Being concerned about Jean's health, she leaned over to him and whispered, "Don't drink too much. If you can't handle it, I'll drink it for you."

The couple was very close to each other. Jean could smell Neera's pleasant scent, and he could not help but smile.

He leaned next to her ear and whispered, "Of course, whatever you say."

His warm breath tickled Neera's ear, causing her heart to thump wildly. Those three words rang in her ear.

Whatever you say… Whatever you say…
