At Saunders Group, Emilia, dressed in a new business suit, stepped out of the car with delicate makeup on her face.
Once she got out of the car, she saw a familiar figure approach her.
“Mr. Zimmerman, are you waiting for me?”
Emilia stroked her hair and walked toward Raymond in her high heels.
As they spoke, the two of them stood facing each other. Raymond, in a black suit with a tie, was in his fifties, but it could not hide his sharp and professional demeanor. His black suit accentuated his sharpness and shrewdness perfectly.
“Lia, I want to talk to you.”
Raymond’s gaze followed Emilia as he reported to her while they walked. toward the company entrance.
“Did something happen with the task I assigned to you last time?” Emilia furrowed her eyebrows.
Raymond nodded slightly and stared at her sharply while explaining, “Some people within the board of directors are making moves behind the scenes. You’ve just returned to the company, and your position is not yet. solid. The old foxes on the board are all watching you. You must be extremely cautious. This is a critical moment for you to take power. You must not give them anything to use against you.”
Emilia replied gently, “Yes. Mr. Zimmerman, don’t worry. I know this.”
After all, she had been away for ten years. Although she had regained control of Saunders Group and held the reins of the company, those old folks on the board were definitely not going to obey her behind the
Furthermore, once she came back to the company, she immediately terminated projects and laid off employees, disrupting other people’s interests. It would be abnormal for those individuals not to engage in small tricks in private.
Emilia’s mind was preoccupied with thoughts about those old folks on the board of directors. When she reached the doorway, she lifted her head, and a familiar and handsome figure instantly caught her eye.
She asked in her heart, “Nathan? What is he doing here?”
Upon seeing him, Emilia was startled and stopped in her tracks.
While she was in a daze, the man had arrived in front of her.
The man was dressed in a black suit with a spotless white shirt underneath. His short, unruly hair framed a flawlessly handsome face that exuded an air of elegance and aloofness. The bright light elongated his silhouette.
Raymond stood behind Emilia and fixed his eyes on Nathan.
He questioned internally, “Isn’t this Nathan, Mr. Noah Miller’s grandson?”
Raymond had never seen him before, except on TV.
He calmly assessed the man in front of him, and thought to himself, “This is
Mille sole heir of the Miller family, the grandson of Mr. Noah
Miller himself. Since he took over Miller Group, it has achieved a
significant leap in just two short years. Having heard of his name and reputation, Raymond had been eager to meet Noah’s grandson for some time now.
Raymond continued internally, “Mr. Noah Miller single–handedly. founded Miller Group back then, and it was truly a glorious and
honorable achievement. It’s just a pity that the Miller family was lacking in descendants, and there was no one to carry on the legacy after Mr. Miller’s son. It wasn’t until Nathan took the reins that Miller Group got. revitalized and prospered.”
Raymond greeted, “Mr. Miller, the well–known CEO of Miller Group.”
Although Raymond was an old hand in the business world, having worked alongside Emilia’s father, when he saw Nathan, he still had to
admit that, whether in terms of appearance or the remarkable to
achievements he had made since taking over Miller Group, Nathan. possessed enough traits to shake the entire business community of Radford.
He stared at Nathan in astonishment and turned to look at Emilia. His words were full of admiration and praise, “Mr. Noah Miller does have a remarkable talented grandson–handsome and charismatic with an impressive presence. He is truly a source of pride for his grandfather.”
Raymond rattled on, “You might not know this since you just joined the company, but Nathan took over Miller Group three years ago and
brought it from its trough to its peak. Now, Miller Group has occupied half of the business world and developed into a leading enterprise.”
Emilia looked at him calmly.
Raymond continued, “If we can cooperate with Miller Group, our future. will be promising. Having influential support can provide great benefits. If we firmly grasp Miller Group, your path within the company will become smoother. Then, in the future, we can even use Miller Group to challenge those old folks on the board and completely eliminate the remaining influence of Jason.”
It was a good idea, but Emilia did not want to have anything to do with Nathan anymore.
She would fight for what she wanted on her own and never deal with Nathan again.
Emilia sneered, “Mr. Zimmerman, he is my ex–husband.”
Raymond processed her words internally, “What? Nathan, the only heir of Miller Group, is Emilia’s ex–husband?”
He was utterly stunned as if he had been struck by lightning.
He did not know how Emilia had gone through the past ten years, nor did he ask her what she had experienced in those ten years. However, when he heard that Emilia called Nathan her ex–husband, his mind went blank with shock, and he could not believe what he had heard.
Raymond stared at Emilia in surprise, and it took him a long time to recover from the fact that Nathan was Emilia’s ex–husband.
He had heard that Nathan did not like his wife. He liked someone else, and he still pestered other women. He had had extramarital affairs during his marriage and cheated on her.
But Raymond never expected that Emilia was the one who had been cheated on by Nathan!
After a while, he snapped out of the shock of Nathan being Emilia’s ex–husband, and his fondness for Nathan instantly disappeared.
His sharp eyes flashed across the man opposite and finally fell on Emilia. “It’s really true that you can’t judge a book by its cover. On the surface, Nathan looks impressive, but who would have thought that he’s a guy who can’t stay faithful and is entangled with other women? His personal
life is so chaotic. Isn’t this bullying?”
Emilia’s father had treated him with great kindness when he was alive, and now that Emilia was being treated that way, he could not just stand by and do nothing..
“Lia, as long as I am here, I will not let you suffer. I’ll teach him a lesson.”
Raymond’s face tightened in anger. He was about to walk toward Nathan when Emilia stopped him the next second.
“Mr. Zimmerman…” Emilia looked at Raymond, who was going to vent his anger, and shook her head. “He doesn’t know that I am the daughter of the Saunders family. I don’t want to tell him my true identity now.”
Raymond’s piercing gaze shook slightly. Although he did not know what Emilia’s plan was, he knew that she had a reason for doing that.
With those thoughts in mind, he glanced intently at Emilia, nodded, and returned to his original position.
Emilia cast a glance at the icy, chilling gaze that made her feel as if she had fallen into an ice cellar.
Nathan tightly pressed his thin lips together as he looked at the indifferent woman before him. It was still the same pretty and lively eyes and brows he knew, but at that moment, she lacked the warmth and care. she had shown him in the past. It was as if she had never known him and was ignoring him. A sense of irritation inexplicably ignited within him.
Just then, Shawn went up to Emilia and said politely, “Ms. Saunders, Mr. Miller wants to have a chat with you.”
