Brittany chuckled lightly, “So, the economic status of NK Corporation is in trouble, huh? You’re even paying attention to our tiny, insignificant studio, Mr. Salter?
“Don’t talk to me like that, Isaac’s eyes were deep set.
He couldn’t stand Brittany’s attitude toward him at the time. She was like a fiercely defensive hedgehog, ready to hurt him at any moment, leaving him utterly drained
“So, how should I interact with you?”
Could it be that he had been in a high position for too long and then wanted to do some charity work?
Isaac watched the sneer at the corner of her mouth, his eyes flashing with confusion, “Have you eaten ye!?”
Brittany didn’t respond. She had no appetite.
If she couldn’t solve the bank’s issue in a day, she wouldn’t be able to eat for a day
“I’ll treat you to a meal” Isaac saw through her thoughts, a hint of heartache flashing in his eyes. She was still the same as she was five years ago, completely devoting to her work and putting her own needs last.
“No, thanks. Brittany shook her head. She couldn’t eat in front of Isaac.
“If you join me for a meal, I’ll help you with the bank
“Mr. Salter.” Brittany slightly raised her eyebrows, finding that amusing, daddy me?”
What are you trying to do? Play the philanthropist? Or are you trying to sugar
“That’s not what I meant,” Isaac’s face darkened. He just wanted to help her.
Brittany walked past him.
“Brittany, let’s talk. Isaac grabbed her hand, his voice possessing a hint of pleading.
Brittany withdrew her hand and said, “Alright, Mr. Salter.”
Since he wanted to talk, let’s talk
Suppressing his joy, Isaac immediately took Brittany to a fancy restaurant.
They chose a private room, and Isaac ordered dishes according to Brittany’s taste. When the waiter left, he brought her a cup of coffee,
Brittany didn’t touch the cup.
Instead, she got herself a fresh cup and took a sip of the coffee, “Mr. Salter, what do you want to discuss?”
Discuss what happened five years ago?
Seeing her resistance, Isaac felt a bit awkward, “About what happened five years ago, I can explain. I wasn’t planning to marry Shona, I…”
“Mr. Salter.” Brittany put down her cup, cutting off Isaac, “Whether you were going to marry her or not, it’s none of my business.”
Isaac’s lips quivered slightly
How could it be none of her business?
“I don’t want to talk about what happened five years ago.” A hint of mockery flashed in Brittany’s eyes. “Whom you want to marry or be with is your business. I don’t care, and it doesn’t bother me. I just want to tell you, please try to avoid me in the future.
About the financial issues of Bri-jeweled Studio, I’ll handle them myself. Mr. Salter, you might want to save these tactics for your next wife.”
Isaac’s expression was veiled with sadness; his body seemed to be wrapped in a layer of chill. He gripped his coffee cup so tightly that his knuckles turned white.
“Alright, I won’t bring up what happened five years ago, he almost croaked out the words. “Then can we…”
Before he could finish his request to start over”, the door to the private room was pushed open.
Then Shona walked in, looking attractive.
“Mr. Salter, I heard you were here, so I came to say hi…” Shona’s excited expression froze when she saw Brittany “Brittany, she’s alive?” she thought.
Shona had just returned from a business trip and knew nothing about what had happened at the dinner party.
Seeing someone who was supposedly dead for five years suddenly appear alive in front of her, Shona was a bit stunned.
“Ms. Bennett Brittany broke the silence first, “Long time no see.”
Shona’s expression was a bit odd. She walked up to Brittany and forced a smile, “Ms. Dustin, long time no see.”
“I’m sorry, I ran into Mr Salter by chance Brittany thought Shona’s odd behavior was due to her having dinner with her fiancé, so she explained, “Mr. Salter and I have finished our discussion You guys carry on.”
Just as she was thinking of how to leave, Shona took the initiative to approach.
