The Enticing CEO's Chosen Bride novel Chapter 1319

"Hey judges, I reckon Miles might have used some low-grade makeup on the model, possibly with excessive mercury content, causing an allergic reaction on her face. I suggest a thorough investigation."

At this, the judges turned serious instantly, gesturing to the staff nearby who promptly headed onstage and straight into Miles' makeup room.

Chloe then stepped up to the stage and asked, "How long will it take to inspect these cosmetics? Do we wait here or come back for the results?"

"Given the variety of makeup items Miles used, it'll take a while to check each one. I'd suggest you guys head back and wait for the results. The earliest we'll have something might be tomorrow morning."

Chloe smiled and said, "Great, that gives me plenty of time to find a lawyer."

At this, Jacob interrupted, "No need to take that long. We can just check the basic toner and lotion in Miles' makeup box. These products make direct contact with the skin. If there's a problem, it should show up in these two items."

Chloe snorted, "Seems like the famous Mr. Jacob knows exactly what the problem is, even pinpointing it to excessive mercury."

Jacob's face twitched. "Excessive mercury in cosmetics isn't uncommon, Ms. Summers. Don't read too much into it."

Ignoring Jacob, Chloe told the staff, "Follow Mr. Jacob's suggestion. Check the toner and lotion and get us the results ASAP."

A few minutes later, the staff ran tests on the toner and lotion from Miles' makeup box. Soon, the results came in.

"Neither the toner nor the lotion from Miles' makeup box contains excessive mercury."

Hearing this, Jacob's smile froze, and he turned to the staff, "How is that possible? Are you sure you didn't make a mistake?"

The staff gave him a disgruntled look.

Chloe looked at Jacob and said, "Mr. Jacob, what's that disappointed look for? Seems like you were hoping for an excessive mercury finding."

Jacob paled, his gaze rested on Katie, brow furrowed. "It's impossible... her facial reaction..."

Katie, in Miles' arms, slowly lifted her head. Her flawless face took Jacob by surprise. "What...how..."

"I never mentioned any discomfort on my face, Mr. Jacob. I'm curious, you didn't even see anything, why were you so sure that my face had an issue, and specifically, an issue of excessive mercury?"

"We've found a product here with excessive mercury content, a thousand times over the limit!"

The staff's voice suddenly cut in, cold and furious.

"Oh my god! That much mercury could ruin a model's face!" Everyone gasped, unable to comprehend the data.
