After work, Luke told Bianca to go to the CEO's office to look for him, and they would leave together. Bianca waited next to the CEO's personal elevator to head up to Luke's office. Meanwhile, Julie joined Nina, Sue, and her other colleagues to wait for the employees' elevator. Julie saw Bianca, who was standing not far away, enter a bigger elevator by herself. On top of the elevator doors was a sign with "CEO's Elevator" written in gold. It was a dazzling sight. Building A of T Corporation was quite big and had a lot of employees. Even though many high-speed elevators were operating, they were quite crowded during peak times. Julie was envious that only Bianca alone could use the CEO's personal elevator. She could not help but tug at Nina's shirt sleeve and ask softly, "Nina, is Bianca… going into the CEO's personal elevator? What is her relationship with the CEO?" She knew perfectly what Bianca's relationship was to Mr. Crawford, but she wanted to confirm it. "Bianca?
Queenie and Jack walked toward Julia. Queenie held an exquisite jewelry box in her hands. Her eyes were still red. She had been crying ever since she received the test results, though those were tears of joy. She did not expect that her birth daughter was still alive, and that she would find her in such a short time. When Julie saw them, she eagerly hugged Queenie's elbow and greeted her, "Mom." Then, she greeted Jack, "Dad." Those greetings were very natural, and Julie did not sound like a stranger at all. Tears of love gushed out of Queenie's eyes again. "Oh, my dear daughter…" Jack was usually an emotionally stoic man. Tonight, everyone could see from his face that he was happy and excited. Julie did not expect that she was actually the birth daughter of the Provincial Committee Secretary. She almost passed out from the good news. Until now, she was still immersed in ecstasy. Queenie composed herself and placed the jewelry box in Julie's hands. "This is my present
Leia's mocking words made Julie feel humiliated. She was in ecstasy a moment ago, bidding farewell to poverty. Her joy did not last long; the harsh truth had left her battered and bruised! It took Julie a long time to come to her senses. She turned stiffly to look at Leia. "If you know that I'm not their birth daughter, why did you tamper with the test results? What objective could you possibly have, Leia?" "You should've seen in these few days that Mom is eager to reunite with her birth daughter, right? She's been doing that for years and she hasn't succeeded. It's seriously wearing her down, and I can't bear to see her like that. I had to create a lie to comfort her and keep the family intact," Leia said. Julie still could not understand. "Why did you choose me?" Leia chuckled. "Do you think I want to choose you? You happened to be at the right place at the right time. How lucky… let me warn you, Julie, don't think that you're the real Ms. Norman just because my parents ac
After the opening ballet performance, a pair of male and female emcees walked up the stage and delivered their opening speech. "Respected administrators and dear guests, it is our honor today to welcome you to the award ceremony of our school…" At the end of the speech was the award ceremony. The emcees announced the third-prize and second-prize winners first. The vice-principal and the various heads of department awarded the trophies to the students. Every named student went up the stage excitedly. The school was the most renowned private school in A City, and every student there came from a wealthy and influential family. The school had the best educational infrastructure and teachers, and the students were naturally intelligent and talented. It was evident that being an ace student there was not an easy feat. All the students who went up the stage were excited and proud, while their parents in the audience shared their glory. Bianca waited patiently for Rainie's turn
The emcees noticed that Lanie and Ranie Crawford were first prize winners. Especially the brother, who had won six first prizes by himself. They invited their mother to come on stage for an interview, hoping that she would share her thoughts on raising her kids. Bianca walked up the stage. Everyone exclaimed when they saw that Bianca was pregnant. She seemed too young to be a mother. From her face, she looked like a college graduate and not like the mother of two, no, three children. The female emcee helped Bianca get on stage and brought her microphone in front of Bianca. "Good day to you, Madam Rayne. You are Blanche Crawford and Rainie Crawford's mother. You must've taught them well so that they could win so many awards. Can you share your thoughts and experiences with the parents here? Also, do you have any hopes for your children's future?" Queenie furrowed her brows when she saw Bianca. She still could not forgive Bianca and Luke for hurting Leia. However, she fel
Birth mother? Bianca's heart was in her throat. She looked at Luke excitedly. "Do you mean my birth mother is also in A City? Have you… found her?" Bianca knew that Allison was not her birth mother, and a DNA test had proven that she and Luke were not siblings. It was pure agony when Allison had lied to her that she was Luke's sister. Now that the misunderstanding was resolved, she did not have to experience that mental torment anymore. However, she wished that she could find her real birth mother and desired to be loved as a daughter. She did not tell that to anyone. Luke's gaze was profound and confident as he stared at Bianca. "I have indeed found your birth mother. You've also met her more than once." The man's slender fingers caressed Bianca's petite face, and he noticed the anticipation and excitement in her eyes. His deep eyes did not show any obvious emotion, but Bianca could sense his hesitation. Indeed, Luke was hesitating. Once Bianca knew who her birth mot
Allison was unhappy when she thought of the possibility that her son had registered his marriage with Bianca without informing Old Master Crawford. However, she felt slightly more relieved when she remembered that Old Master Crawford had kept Luke's driver's license in a secure place. Old Master Crawford had been prejudiced against Bianca ever since she rejected Luke's proposal. He would not allow his grandson to marry Bianca! Luke walked with Bianca over to the couch and sat down. "Grandfather," he greeted Old Master Crawford. "Mm," Old Master Crawford replied. The harsh lines on his face became gentle when he glanced at Bianca's bulging stomach. "The stomach is already so big. Did the doctor say when's the expected date of delivery?" Luke held Bianca's hand and said gently, "The expected delivery date is October 26th." "That's coming soon. Don't let her go to work, and get her to stay at home and rest. She shouldn't overwork herself; there's not much money to be made anyw
There was dead silence in the villa. Old Master Crawford was frowning while keeping quiet. He knew in his heart that it was pointless to hide Luke’s driver's license. If Luke insisted on obtaining a marriage license with Bianca, he would find a way to get his driver's license. He had always wanted an arranged marriage for Luke, just like he did with Zachary. Old Master Crawford believed in business interests rather than true love. However, Old Master Crawford was acutely aware that Luke was not like his cowardly father. He was strong and assertive, not at all as easy to control. Moreover, his grandson was king of the corporate world. Meanwhile, Old Master Crawford was getting weaker as time passed. Old Master Crawford eventually warmed up to the idea. He believed that Luke would be more responsible after he married Bianca. Luke and Bianca had three children together, so if he continued to object, that would only lead his grandson to rebel! Given the s
