As Shawn delved deeper into uncovering Emilia’s background, he found himself increasingly curious and puzzled about her origins.
However, it wasn’t a simple task to arrange a meeting with her, especially given her busy schedule as the CEO of Saunders Group.
“Mr. Miller, Ms. Saunders is currently the first in command in Saunders Group. It might not be easy to schedule a meeting with her,” Shawn hesitantly pointed out. “I just called their office, and they said that there. are no available appointments with her until next year.”
Nathan hadn’t expected Emilia to use such tactics to avoid him. He furrowed his brows, and his face turned cold as he ordered, “Come pick me up. I’ll go meet the daughter of the Saunders family now.”
“Understood.” Shawn replied respectfully.
Watching the man’s cold and stern expression as he hung up the phone, Jessica couldn’t help but feel a slight unease. She had faintly overheard his conversation with Shawn earlier, and it made her heart beat a little faster.
She tugged at the sleeve of his suit and put on an innocent and harmless. expression as she asked coquettishly, “Nathan, are you going to meet the daughter of the Saunders family?”
“Yes.” Nathan’s brow twitched slightly. His usually composed face
displayed a trace of unusual emotions. He picked up his suit jacket and draped it over his tall and well–built frame. He spoke in a calm tone. “It’s work–related.
Nathan fell silent for a moment. He would be marrying the love of his life in a month’s time. Given the upcoming joyful occasion of his marriage to Jessica, there was simply no need to bring up Emilia, who was now his ex–wife, in front of her.
However, for some inexplicable reason, he couldn’t shake the feeling of emptiness and discomfort when he thought about his impending wedding with Jessica. In his mind, the image of a familiar face kept resurfacing
He had an indescribable feeling of restlessness as though a hundred claws were scratching at his heart.
He took a deep breath and suppressed the thought
that shouldn’t have
Upon seeing that Nathan didn’t mention anything else, Jessica bit her lip. She wasn’t someone who lacked tact. If he didn’t want to talk about it, she wouldn’t push him.
At that moment, all she could think about was her upcoming wedding with Nathan. Becoming his official wife was her only focus, and nothing else mattered.
The room fell momentarily silent.
Looking at the tranquil and obedient figure in the wheelchair, Nathan gently parted his thin lips and instructed Harvey, “Contact all the renowned designers from both here and abroad. Have them bring over their latest wedding gown designs for Jessica to choose from. If she finds one that she likes, that’d be settled. If not, have them customize one to her exact preferences. The wedding gown must meet Jessica’s standards and must be something she adores.”
“Understood,” Harvey replied respectfully.
Nathan turned his head and looked at Jessica’s clear eyes. Her cherry lips. were slightly parted, and with the pallor on her face, she looked truly pitiable and heartrending.
“Rest well. I have some matters to attend to. I’ll take my leave now.”
Upon seeing that he was about to leave, Jessica wore a faint smile on her pale face. She tilted her head playfully and asked, “Nathan, can you accompany me to choose the wedding gown tomorrow?”
Fearing that Nathan might refuse, she spoke up again to tenderly stop
“Nathan, this is our wedding, and on that day, I want to wear the wedding gown you like. I wish for everything to be just the way you like it. Can you fulfill this small wish of mine?”
Her voice was soft and gentle as she playfully shook his sleeve.
Under the woman’s sweet and gentle tone, Nathan lowered his gaze to her delicate eyes. Her presence seemed to dispel some unnamed unease
within him, and his deep, dark eyes revealed a hint of affection.
Tll try my best,” he replied. Then, he gently caressed Jessica’s soft hair.
As she watched Nathan’s resolute figure walk away, Jessica opened her mouth in an attempt to say something to detain him. However, she remembered that he had mentioned “Saunders” during the phone call earlier and chose to remain silent.
After Nathan had left, Jessica stayed busy, her mind consumed by the thought of the daughter of the Saunders family throughout.
“Saunders… It’s Saunders again…” she mused. “If I remember correctly, Nathan’s ex–wife’s last name was also Saunders… Only this time, it’s the daughter of the Saunders family.” In an instant, an ominous feeling filled
She had fought so hard to take Nathan back from Emilia. She couldn’t let the opportunity slip away from her again.
With that in mind, a glint of darkness flashed in her eyes. She immediately called her assistant and instructed, “Find me all the
information about the daughter of the Saunders family and send them to me quickly.”
“Okay.” The assistant who received the call was a bit flustered but quickly agreed to do it.
Soon, the assistant sent the information about the daughter of the Saunders family to Jessica’s inbox.
However, there were no photos, only text information.
Emily, the once–lost daughter of the Saunders family, had disappeared a decade ago and now returned with an air of authority. She acted with swift and decisive measures. Her first order of business upon returning was to wrest control of Saunders Group from the hands of those cunning persons who had been running the company. She halted all existing projects, and within a matter of days, she had placed her own trusted personnel within the company. She established new projects under her leadership and eradicated any factions within the company that didn’t
align with her interests.
Her power and methods left people dumbfounded.
Thinking about the daughter of the Saunders family, Jessica silently clenched her delicate fingers. Even though she hadn’t seen a photo of
Emily, the various actions Emily had taken since her return, as described in the documents, sent a shiver down Jessica’s spine. An intangible sense of pressure overwhelmed her at that moment.
On the way to Saunders Group, in the backseat of the car, Nathan sat with an aura of icy detachment. His long legs were crossed, and his handsome face was slightly tilted as he gazed out the window with a pair of enigmatic dark eyes, hiding emotions that defied interpretation.
Shawn felt a different kind of excitement course through him when he was driving.
If it weren’t for Nathan’s personal orders, he wouldn’t have dreamed that his boss was on his way to see his ex–wife.
The former CEO’s wife was then the prominent young lady of Saunders Group. Just thinking about it made Shawn nervous.
He wondered what the scene would be like when Nathan met his former
