True Fated Marriage novel Chapter 127

Grace Smith was really a graceful young lady. She always looked well put together and it made people around her feel comfortable.

The only thing strange about her expression was that she looked like she was on the guillotine.

What kind of expression was that?

Didn't she want to see him?

Heinz Jones frowned and said in a deep voice, "What's wrong? Are you frustrated that you had to send me the draft?"

Grace smiled slightly, to cover up her awkwardness and said, "No, it's my honour to send it to you."

"I don't catch any sense of honour on your face," Heinz said

Grace took a deep breath and muttered, "You don't have good eyesight. Who can you blame on?"

"Hmm," Heinz's voice was cold. "My eyesight is not good? I think you just did not want to come here."

"No," Grace shook her head and said calmly, "It’s my honour to see you again, Mr. Jones."

"Don't put on an act for me. I don't buy this." Heinz said.

"Then I'll go now," Grace said, "Mr. Jones, after you've read the draft, call me if you have any questions."

"Stop," Heinz said in a deep voice, "Did I say you can go?"

Grace had to stop and stand there, staring at him. She resisted the urge to roll her eyes and said, "Then I'll wait for you. You can say whatever you want."

"Are you trying to please me by being so obedient?" Heinz asked very proudly.

Grace had long been accustomed to this man's selfconfidence and malice.

"Yes, Mr. Jones, I'm pleasing you. Hurry up and read this draft.", Grace said perfunctorily.

"Pleasing me?" Heinz eyes flashed and he said, "If I am happy, maybe I will consider advertising on your publication after your office has upgraded from its previous content."

Grace was stunned. She subconsciously looked at him with surprise in her eyes.

He actually took the initiative to mention the advertising deal, which was really unexpected.

Grace didn't dare open her mouth. She was afraid that it would be a trap.

After all, Heinz seemed as sly as a fox.

She looked at him for a while, keeping a calm face.

"If the enemy stays quiet, I should not move. If the enemy starts moving, then I should remain quiet. I should only move when I have a plan," Grace thought.

Therefore, she didn't say anything according to this rule, she just looked at him.

Heinz frowned at her silence and said, "Don't you want me to invest in your newspaper?"

Grace said, "I can't decide on behalf of the newspaper office. Whether you invest or not, it's not a big deal to me."

She said this on purpose, but she was in fact, telling the truth.

After all, she only worked at the newspaper for a salary. Lorenzo Chen had schemed against her and caused her so much trouble previously. Now, all she wanted was to earn her salary in peace.

Given her meagre salary, it was not worth it to get into trouble for it.

So Grace had to consider before jumping into any such situations.

"Ha." Heinz sneered and said, "I am offering you money, but you don't want it."

"A gentleman has his own ways of earning money," Grace said, "Mr. Jones, could you just tell me your conditions directly? I don't have much experience in this. I won't be able to survive your tricks."

"Why would I be tricking you into taking my money?" Heinz sneered, he was now angry. Was he such a man with no morals in her heart?

"Does she mistrust me so much?

Am I such a bad guy?" Heinz couldn't stop thinking.

He was very displeased.
