The hotel doorman was being careful. After he asked for Luca’s name and made sure that her name was on the guest list, he enthusiastically brought her upstairs. The doormoon pushed the door open when they arrived at the private room, “Ms. Craw, you came early. Please take a rest first.”Luca frowned and asked, “No one’s here yet?”“Yes. You’re the first to arrive,” replied the doorman.Luca nodded. If she had known she would be the first to arrive, she would not have left the office so early. Luca walked into the room.A waiter immediately entered the room to serve a fruit plate and pour Luca a glass of water. The service provided was swift and attentive. “Miss, may I know if you need anything else?” asked the waiter in a soft voice. “I’m fine. Thank you.” Luca shook her head. The waiter’s attitude was friendly and she was simply not used to it.Luca had experienced all kinds of hospitality when she accompanied Luke in the past. Now however, it had been a long time sinc
"All I ask is for my baby to grow healthily." Nina only wanted her baby to be healthy. “You’ll have a strong and healthy baby after nursing your health.” Luca held Nina’s hands.Percy pushed the door open and came in. He noticed that they were having a moment, and he could not help but ask, “What are you two talking about?”Nina smiled and paraphrased what Luca said to her, "I asked Luca to check my pulse just now. She told me that my condition was much better now. We can have a baby after our wedding ceremony.""Really?" Percy was not in a hurry to have a baby. However, he thought it would be interesting to have a daughter who resembled Nina. "Dr. Craw, are there any ways to make Nina get pregnant with a baby girl?" “There’s no way I can decide the gender of the baby. Let nature take its course.” Luca could not help but secretly exclaim that Percy was a man who would dote on his daughter.“He has always thought of getting a baby girl who resembles me if we were to have a baby.
The man raised his brows and asked, “Then what should we do?”Pierre did not say anything. He stared at his secretary, who fell back onto the sofa. “Mr. Pierre?” The man waited for him to say something. He was considered Pierre's sidekick, and he was usually supported by Pierre to help him run some errands. "Steal the safe box," Pierre spoke.“Steal it? Sure thing. I’m pretty good at things like this.” The man nodded. He was good at handling these things. Stealing a safe box and increasing some manpower was not difficult for him. Moreover, that was Pierre's company. Taking the safe box away was not considered stealing it.Ms. Malone heard their conversation and stopped crying. She reminded embarrassingly, “Mr. Pierre, but the safe box in your office is mounted…” A hint of oddness flashed across Pierre’s eyes. How did the secretary get hired?Could it be that the HR department hired her for her looks? Why could she not think wisely?The man shook his head continuously. They
“Pierre, your grandpa and I will help you to handle this. The thing that matters the most now is that you can’t let the people from the Department of Justice and the police officers find you. Otherwise, it’s inconvenient for us to speak up for you,” said Madam Mallory. She could not expect the others to help them out.Now, the CEO of Mallory Corporation was still Percy. The news of the two brothers not being on good terms had already spread. That was why Mallory Corporation was not affected by Pierre's matter at the moment.It set Madam Mallory’s mind at ease knowing that the company was fine. At least she did not have to be up to her neck in problems while handling both sides.Pierre narrowed his eyes. His mother only said that she would be helping him, but he could sense that there was no longer bias toward him in her voice. This implied that she approved of what Percy did. It was Percy’s fault that he was in such a mess, but they said nothing about it. They claimed that they on
“Yes, Mrs. Mallory.” The maid immediately went to prepare.After a while, Madam Mallory carried a tray and walked toward Old Master Mallory’s bedroom door. She knocked on the door. The old master’s voice came from inside the room. “Who is it?”“Father, it’s me,” said Madam Mallory in a soft voice. “Mr. Bennett said that you haven’t eaten anything today. I made supper for you.”“I’m not eating. You can have it.” Old Master Mallory did not open the door. His voice that came from the room sounded stiff.Madam Mallory heard the old master’s voice and knew he was still in a rage."Father, let's talk." She stood outside the door, pleading. Even if she was able to deal with Pierre's matter without the old master's help, it would take some time for her to settle it.Pierre would not be able to be patient and wait that long.Besides, this matter could not be delayed for too long either.Madam Mallory stood there, waiting for Old Master Mallory to say something.“Come in.” After a while
“Yes, Old Master Mallory.” Mr. Bennett looked down and answered, but he secretly thought that it was still a little difficult to find out where Pierre was.Pierre knew too many scumbags. Besides, there were a few hiding places for him to hide. They might not be able to find him at all.However, when Mr. Bennett saw how desperate Old Master Mallory was to find Pierre and seeing that he had no other instructions, he asked in a low voice, “Old Master Mallory, is there anything else I need to do?”Old Master Mallory replied with a long face, “No, you may leave.”“Okay, Old Master Mallory. Call me if you need anything.” Mr. Bennett looked down and left the room.After leaving Old Master Mallory's bedroom, Mr. Bennett picked up his phone and did what he was told. He informed those men to continue looking for Pierre. Mr. Bennett did think that Pierre might be hiding in one of his friends’ places. That was why he sent some of the men there.However, it was not that easy to find out whe
“Don’t let her have the chance to tell others about this.” Pierre knew what Oswald was thinking about. He did not think of stopping him.Now, Ms. Malone already knew about Pierre's secret. There was no way he would let her go. This was to prevent her from telling the police that he was here.Ms. Malone could not be trusted. She was not one of his trustworthy subordinates. “Got it, Mr. Pierre.” Oswald handed another plastic bag to Pierre and said, “Mr. Pierre, this is the cash we found at the finance department in your office. Look…”“Take it. I’m staying at your place now, and I’ll be having my meals here. I’ll leave everything to you to arrange. I can’t turn on my phone at the moment, and I can’t use my credit cards either. I’ll need you to pay for me.” After that, Pierre lay down on the sofa.Oswald responded, “Okay, Mr. Pierre. I’ll ask someone to clean up a room for you. I’ll make sure the room’s clean and tidy so that you can have a comfortable stay.”Pierre waved his hand
Vivian’s face reddened as she felt embarrassed for receiving such a compliment from Luca. She said, “Hey, you’re exaggerating it. How am I pretty with these looks…”“Beauty is confidence. Come on. Stand up straight. Be confident.” Luca patted Vivian’s shoulders, signaling her to stand tall.Vivian stood straight.“Vivian, did you realize your skin condition has improved after coming to A City…” Luca sized her up and suddenly said this to her.Vivian touched her face and asked, “Is that so? It’s probably because I have makeup on.”“No. I’m looking at the skin on your neck and hands.” Luca pointed at Vivian’s neck. Vivian had not put on her scarf since they were not going out yet. She could see that Vivian’s skin was fairer and more hydrated than before."Really? I didn't notice that." Vivian stood in the foyer and looked at herself in the mirror for some time. Still, she did not notice that her skin had become fairer. “You’ve been looking at yourself in the mirror all day. Of c
