Moon had quite a rep in the architectural world, just like Mr. Blanchet, she had no public photos, people only knew their names but not their faces
There was a rumor going around that she was a young, beautiful, and rich lady.
If they couldn’t get an interview with Mr. Blanchet today, interviewing designer Moon would be a pretty sweet deal too
Journalists were psyched to see Moon make an appearance, but the reality was quite a letdown.
Moon did come on stage, but she was not the wealthy beauty from the rumors; instead, she was a slightly overweight woman, dressed plainly with a hat and mask. The joumalists enthusiasm for photos went down the drain
Ellinor, fully geared up, straightened her back and walked onto the stage, trying to pass herself off as just being a bit overweight and not pregnant.
Before she came, she was actually pretty stressed, but when Bartlett tipped her off with inside info that Then may not attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, she breathed a sigh of relief.
As long as she didn’t have to face that man, she could keep her cool
After introducing all the guests for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the host seemed to be waiting for someone and scanned the crowd.
It wasn’t until a staff member whispered something in the host’s ear that the host nodded and announced to the journalists that the CEO of the Blanchet Corporation couldn’t make it to the ceremony, so there was no point in wailing.
Though disappointed, the journalists had no choice but to go on with their interviews.
The announcement was just like what Bartlett had told Ellinor before, which eased her tension again. Now she could proceed with the ribbon-cutting ceremony with peace of mind
The Blanchet Corporation’s ribbon-cutting ceremony was quite grand. After cutting the nbbon with the other guests, Ellinor took the chance to sneak off somewhere
Job done. Now all she had to do was wait for the car Bartlett had arranged for her
She originally wanted to meet up with Chase and Ida during this event, but Ida messaged her yesterday saying Theo was having doubts and advised her not to show up for safety reasons.
The driver Bartlett sent was stuck in traffic, so he called her to tell her to find a place to rest for a bit
Ellinor did need a quiet place to sit down, her physical condition wasn’t as good as it was before. She was eight months pregnant, so standing for a long time was quite tinng, and her back hurt.
While looking up at the building she designed, knowing for sure that Thea wouldn’t be there today, she decided to go in to find a quiet place to rest.
So she slowly walked into the building. She designed the architecture of the building, but the interior was designed by someone Theo hired. It was simple and upscale, a perfect match for Theo’s cold vibe
That man was anything but cold! it was all an act!
Since she was here already, Ellinor decided to go upstairs. During the design process, she paid special attention to one office: the CEO’s office.
Back then, she still had a crush on Theo, so she put a lot of thought into the design of his office, especially in terms of view and layout.
Today was the grand opening of the Blanchet Corporation’s new location, but in reality, to not interrupt work, important departments hadn’t moved over yet. So, there weren’t many people in the building, mainly cleaners who were prepping for the upcoming mass migration.
With not many people around, Ellinor plucked up the courage to take the elevator upstairs.
It wasn’t crowded upstairs either A few employees asked her who she was and what she wanted. So she showed the temporary pass she got at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, proving she was the designer of the building.
After seeing the pass, the employees had no more questions and were super polite to her, telling her she was free to look around.
