Nathan’s face darkened.
He thought, ‘Why does Emilia not even want to look at me?‘
As soon as she went downstairs, Emilia saw Jessica standing in the lobby of the hotel who was waiting for Nathan.
Emilia walked away, but Jessica deliberately blocked her with an arrogant expression.
“How dare you still stay here?”
“That’s what I should ask you. Doesn’t your face hurt?” Emilia looked at Jessica’s red and swollen face with amusement.
After all, Emilia slapped her very hard last night.
Jessica gritted her teeth in hatred, but her face changed immediately when she saw Nathan. “Nathan, I’ve been waiting for you for a long time. Let’s go to the assembly room together.”
Jessica was about to take Nathan’s arm, but he quietly avoided her.
He glanced at Emilia quietly. Seeing that she didn’t seem to care about him, he pursed his lips and asked Jessica in a cold voice, “Why are you still here?”
Jessica’s smile froze on her face, but soon she came back to her senses and said bashfully, “You are tired these days. Of course, I should accompany you.”
After saying that, she got into Nathan’s car without seeing anything. She was sure that Nathan would not leave her in front of so many people.
Nathan just frowned unhappily, but he didn’t say anything. It was his acquiescence.
In the assembly room, Emilia and Nathan showed up one after the other.
It wasn’t big news. After all, everyone had seen them at the opening ceremony. But Jessica’s attendance caused a lot of discussion.
Many people there knew what happened at Nathan’s wedding. Yesterday, they were wondering whether there was a possibility that Nathan and Emilia would get back together. To their surprise, Nathan showed up with Jessica today.
People thought Nathan really loved Jessica because he should endure it after what happened the day before.
Therefore, everyone present looked at Jessica with strange eyes. Some of them even looked at her obscenely from time to time.
Jessica felt disgusted, but she didn’t dare to get angry. She had no choice but to straighten her back and walk beside Nathan as if she was Nathan’s real girlfriend.
After all participants were seated, the organizer issued competition rules.
“Thank you all for coming to today’s auction. Now I will announce the competition rules. First, the representatives of enterprises participating in the competition need to go on stage to set forth your understanding of the competing software, operation concept, and planned operation mode.
“After everyone finishes speaking, you can start to bid. The bidding process can be continuous. It’s similar to an auction, but it does not mean that the bidder with the highest price will get it. The software owner will determine the final ownership of the application based on the performance of your elaboration and the final bidding results.”
After the organizer amtounced the rules, representatives of all companies participating in the competition itched to try.
According to the order, the top software was produced by other companies attending the summit. Emilia and Nathan were not interested in it, so they didn’t pay much attention to it.
Most of the competitors, knowing that they were not competitive with Miller Group at all, retreated to bidding on it.
Of course, there were very few people who wanted to venture to bid on it.
After all, the organizer said the key point: it was not just about financial resources. It meant that the one who offered the highest price was not necessarily the winner.
Emilia sat down in the front row with Martin beside her.
Seeing that Emilia had dark circles, Martin frowned slightly and asked, “Didn’t you have a good rest last night?”
Of course, Emilia wouldn’t tell him what happened last night. She shook her head and said, “It’s okay. I just couldn’t sleep.”
“It’s natural that the hotel is not as comfortable as home.” Martin was a little worried, so he repeated yesterday’s proposal seriously. “How about moving to my place?”
His voice was not loud, but Nathan, who was a short distance away, could just hear it.
