Very soon, Jeremy Quest walked in.After making his way through the door, he pulled a chair out and sat in front of the computer.After that, Jeremy Quest sighed helplessly before softly brushing Xyla Quest’s hair. “I spoke too harshly to you yesterday. I would like to apologize.”Xyla shook her head calmly. “Dad, it’s alright. I know you were just too upset yesterday.”“To be honest, I thought about it after calming down. Even if you did those things, I think it’s reasonable…“After all, they were too mean to you.” Jeremy gritted his teeth when he recalled what those people had done.Xyla was touched by what her father said. She then leaned her head against Jeremy’s shoulder and said softly, “Dad, thank you for being on my side.”“Silly girl, I’m your father. If I weren’t on your side, whose side would I be on?” Jeremy asked.Xyla smiled like a naïve kid.“Sometimes, I think about whether I have made the mistake of remarrying after your mother passed away.“If I hadn’t remarried, you
“That’s right… Dad, look, this is the list of top achievers in our class. That’s me.” After that, Xyla Quest scrolled through the pictures of her results one at a time, showing them to Jeremy Quest.She came first on nearly every single list!Jeremy was pleasantly surprised. Although Xyla did rather well in high school, she was definitely not talented enough to get into a university like this.However, after leaving home, she had gotten into this university, she was even the best performing student.“My baby girl, you are outstanding!” Jeremy could not hide the pride in his smile.Now, all Jeremy could think about was Xyla’s excellent performance in academics. Clearly, he had forgotten all about Emily Quest being in the top fifty in her stream.The feeling of being ignored and outshone made Emily feel very miserable.Although Atlantis University was a famous university within the country, it was not worth mentioning compared to Summerland University.Emily gritted her teeth. “What’s so
“She’s stepping into her own grave in such a hurry.” Xyla Quest chuckled before replying to the email.“I’m very interested.” She wrote.Emily Quest responded almost instantly. “Really? Can you give me your contact number? Let’s discuss this over a call.”Xyla smiled before sending Georgie Clementine’s phone number to Emily.After a second, Emily’s call came in.Seeing this, Xyla immediately picked up the phone and excused herself from the room. “Hello, how are you…” She said while leaning lazily against the wall.Xyla intentionally changed her voice so that she sounded completely different.“Hello, are you Josh Batton’s manager, Georgie Clementine?”“Yes, I’m very interested in what you mentioned. However, I think that thirty million dollars is not enough…” Xyla said while twirling her hair with her fingers.“What about thirty-five million dollars?”“But most of our deals are at least forty million dollars these days,” Xyla replied.“Well… Well then, let’s make it forty million dollar
However, nobody picked up Emily Quest’s call.After several attempts, the phone had actually been turned off!Emily felt as if she was going mad.Why did Josh Batton choose ten million dollars over forty million dollars? Did he have something against money?Or did he have feelings for Xyla Quest? When Emily thought of this, she instantly became jealous, and her face darkened. However, Emily very quickly rejected that thought. Why would a man like him fall for Xyla Quest? There were plenty of other beautiful women in the entertainment industry.“What the hell is going on?!” Emily mumbled to herself with her fists clenched.Meanwhile, Josh Batton’s fans were viciously attacking Emily on Weibo. It was driving her insane!If she knew this was going to happen, she would not have shown off so proudly. When she recalled how she had insulted Xyla the night before, she felt extremely embarrassed.Ring. Ring. Ring.The phone next to her bed started ringing. Emily instantly picked it up.“Get yo
“Ughh! I’m so mad!” Emily Quest grabbed a pillow next to her and hurled it to the ground.After Xyla Quest got changed upstairs, she put on some light make-up before getting into her car and driving to X Entertainment.X Entertainment’s office was located in the most developed area in the city center of Atlantis.From the outside, the tall building appeared both fashionable and artistic.Since the walls were made fully of glass, it was nearly transparent from the inside out.With a total of sixteen floors, there were twelve floors above the ground and four floors under.All of X Entertainment’s artists and trainees had their practices and recordings done in this building.After Xyla got out of her car, she quickly entered the tall building.Dressed in a light blue professional outfit, coupled with a white T-shirt and white heels, she seemed both dainty and experienced.Using her personal elevator, Xyla rode to the president’s office directly.As soon as she sat down, Georgie Clementine
The man seemed to be illuminated by a bright light. Wherever he was, the light would follow him.While the bright light followed him, everyone else around him faded in the background.Dressed in a leisurely black shirt and long black pants, he had on a pair of casual black shoes. Moreover, his collar was slightly rolled up with three buttons open in front of his chest. He looked both lazy and sexy.Despite being surrounded by a group of beautiful women, he seemed to be completely disinterested.Like a star in the sky, he was bright and attractive but unattainable by the ordinary person.At first, Xyla thought that she would never see this man again. However, she bumped into him today yet again.Were the people around him gangsters as well?Was this a meeting among gangsters?Did people who worked in that field dress so well these days?Although Xyla thought of leaving, she felt that she did not do anything wrong to him. Why should she leave?As the thought occurred to her, Xyla immedia
At that moment, Xyla Quest no longer looked like the gentle fairy she seemed to be. There was a sudden coldness about how she looked.“Who do you think you are?!” Xyla asked as she pointed the half-broken bottle at the man.“You guys are dead! Boys, let’s go!” The group of gangsters took out their knives and began walking forward.After Xyla calmly turned around to exchange glances with Georgie Clementine, she began to fight back with the martial arts skills she had learned over the years when she was abroad.Closely after that, Georgie picked up a bottle of beer and joined her in the fight.They managed to take down two of the gangsters within half a minute with their swift and clean movements.Apart from Stanley Batton, everyone else at his table was shocked…Henry rubbed his eyes before stammering, “Why are our sister-in-law and her friend so brave?”Sebastian Brenand gulped. “They are ferocious, but I like it!”Without saying a word, Stanley glanced coldly at a group of bodyguards
Sebastian Brenand took in a deep breath. “It was only meant as a joke. How could that have happened?”Henry rolled his eyes at Sebastian. “Pray for your own well-being.”When Xyla Quest leaned her face against his solid and broad chest, she could feel his prominent heartbeat.Xyla took in a deep breath. “About that… Actually, I can walk on my own with a little help…” She sounded a little embarrassed.However, the man continued to walk outside without saying a word.Since they were a good-looking pair, everyone turned their heads to look at them when they walked past.After they made it outside, Xyla looked at the man’s hardened face. “Don’t you still have unrecovered wounds? Are you sure it’s okay to hold me like this? Why don’t you put me down?”From what she recalled, he was injured only a few days ago. In fact, he was in a pretty bad shape then.Wouldn’t his wounds be affected if he held her like this?“Where is your car?” The man asked as if he had not heard what she said earlier.
