In love, never say never novel read online free chapter 92
Glancing at the pile of documents on the desk, I nodded. As I had previously asked her to pay attention to OrbitTech, I asked, “Let me see the market report for HiTech. The feedback for the products seems quite good. Are there any updates regarding OrbitTech?”
She replied, “Yes. OrbitTech and HiTech have released a product in the AI education category at the same time. As their target consumer group is students, their publicity efforts are mainly concentrated in schools. The product is quite good, but the price and cost are quite high. Hence, only a selected group of people can afford it.”
I nodded. “Okay. Continue keeping an eye on them. If necessary, you can arrange for a meeting between the president of OrbitTech and myself.”
As OrbitTech was focused on technology research and development, its marketing and management efforts were not exceptional. If Fuller Corporation could acquire a technology powerhouse like OrbitTech, it could have a breakthrough for its future developments in the technology field.
Stacey nodded. “Understood. However, the manager of OrbitTech’s marketing department seems to be in close contact with a technology company in A City.”
“I see.” As a technology company, it probably wanted to find investors to expand its business. Not concerned about it, I raised my head and looked at Stacey. “Are you dating?”
She was stunned for a while before smiling shyly. “Yeah, we’re going to get married soon.” As she spoke, she subconsciously touched the wedding ring on her finger.
I smiled. “Does he work in the same industry as us? Why don’t we have a meal together?”
Looking like a woman happily in love, she chuckled and said, “He’s quite busy recently, so he doesn’t have much time to spare. Why don’t we wait till this busy period passes? If you don’t mind, I’d like you to be our presider.”
“You’ve already decided to marry?” I was a bit shocked. From my recent observations, she had only dated for one or two months.
Blushing, she nodded and explained, “We were classmates. We’ve known each other for a long time, but we’ve only started dating recently. Our families have been urging us, so we decided to get married.”
I laughed and did not say anything else. After Stacey placed the documents down and left, I received a call from Jared.
I picked up the call and greeted, “Hello, Dr. Crest!”
“Are you free, Scarlett?” He sounded like he wanted to talk to me about something.
Stunned momentarily, I replied, “I’m meeting Macy tonight. What’s the matter?”
He fell silent for a while before saying, “It’s nothing. Ashton called me to check up on your body.”
I subconsciously frowned and replied, “I’m fine. You don’t have to worry.”
“Did you guys get into a fight?”
Our disagreements could not be counted as full-fledged arguments. We simply did not see eye to eye because we were both on different wavelengths.
After a slight pause, he continued, “That’s good, then. There’s a box on my office’s desk which contains some supplement pills. You can come and retrieve it whenever you’re free. Remember to take it regularly.”
“Alright. Thank you!”
After chatting for a while, I hung up the call and glanced at the clock. The workday had already ended.
I was going to meet Macy at the shopping mall, so I tidied my desk and headed directly to the car park. After what happened the previous time, I rarely parked my car in the underground car park.
Instead, I parked it in the open car park on the ground floor. Underground car parks were often dark and shady. Although an open car park would expose my car to the sun, it was still safer.
After getting into the car, I reversed the car out of the parking lot. I was about to leave when I suddenly spotted someone familiar. A slightly chubby middle-aged man was sitting in a black Cayenne beside Joe’s red sports car. Somehow, his figure looked familiar to me.
Although I didn’t manage to see the face of my kidnapper clearly, I could remember his figure well. I could not help but stop my car and scrutinize the middle-aged man sitting in the Cayenne.
However, the man drove away quickly.
As I did not get a good look at the kidnapper, and there were a lot of chubby middle-aged men around, it was difficult for me to identify him amongst so many people.
After hesitating for a while, I still drove toward the shopping mall where I was supposed to meet Macy.
By the time I arrived, Macy had already been waiting for me for a long time. When she saw me, she pouted and lamented, “Scarlett, you’re late for half an hour.”
Passing a cup of milk tea to her, I explained, “I’m not late on purpose. There’s a traffic jam along the way. As an apology, here’s a cup of milk tea I bought for you.”
She took it from my hands and replied proudly, “Since you’re so sincere, I’ll let you off the hook.”
The shopping mall in the city center of J City was humongous. Perhaps it had been quite some time since Macy last came out, she was extremely excited. In fact, she deliberately skipped breakfast in the morning just to prepare herself for the sumptuous seafood buffet here.
I chuckled, recalling the times in college when we did not have a lot of money. In order to eat good food, we would save up for a long time before splurging on a buffet together.
Memories were the souvenirs of time.
Come to think of it, those were the happiest days of my life. Although I was poor, I did not love anyone—life was carefree and burdenless.
After dinner, Macy dragged me into a baby shop. She walked around and picked some items which I would need once my baby is born.
