Chapter 209 Her Charisma (1)
“I’m sorry, senior brother, I’ve let you down.” Rose replied lightly,
Darrin stared at Rose with a slightly heavy paze for a few seconds, then suddenly took a step forward, cornering her against the wall.
“I know you have your difficulties,” he looked at her, “I have my responsibilities too, but Rose, can we stop going backwards?”
“Senior Brother, I had no choice,” Rose said, avoiding his gaze.
The child in her belly left her with no choice.
Darrin gazed at Rose for a long time, not knowing how much time had passed before he finally retracted his affectionate gaze, “You will still do Wesley’s interview, won’t you?”
“I’m still not sure,” Rose said seriously, “but Luther assured me that if I didn’t conduct the interview, Wesley wouldn’t accept interviews from anyone else.”
Darrin gave a bitter laugh, “So this is your personal charm, huh?”
He knew that Wesley’s agreement to be interviewed by Rose was undoubtedly due to Judson’s efforts. But the fact that Luther could make such a promise to Rose was a testament to her own abilities.
Darrin was also jealous of Judson. He was envious that he wasn’t allowed to interfere in Rose’s affairs, while Judson never played by the rules.
Intervened and forced Rose to accept.
He didn’t want to see the two of them have more contact. The mistake he had made before had already made Rose and Judson a married couple in name.
The more they intersected, the fainter his hope became.
But to Abbie, this conversation between the two had a different interpretation.
As expected, Rose got the interview by seducing Wesley’s assistant, Luther!
Moreover, Luther had made her a solemn promise.
“I simply wasn’t as despicable or shameless as her, that’s why I lost so badly! Even though my family background and talent were superior to hers, and I was no less attractive, I was still crushed and humiliated by her!”
Once this concept took root in Abbie’s mind, it could never be dispelled.
After the meeting today, the high–ranking officials who had originally stood firmly behind me, all began to waver.
They didn’t care how Rose achieved her goal, they only saw the outcome, saw her miserable failure, saw Rose’s “capability“.
If Abbie continued to be so hesitant, she would only lose more in the future.
“Mr. Sullivan, a journalist named Edwards said that you had arranged to meet with him.”
Luther was about to leave when he heard the phone ring. He
immediately took out the gift he had prepared for Rose.
“Invited her in.”
The door opened, and just as Luther, holding a gift, was about to speak, he saw a completely unfamiliar woman, dressed in a seductive and flamboyant manner, walk in.
“Who are you?” Luther was taken aback.
“Mr. Sullivan, I’m Abbie Sawyer, I am the director of the Finance Department at Flourish Media,” Abbie approached with a flattering smile.
She belonged to the type of striking and bold beauty. That day, she had dressed up meticulously, wearing very revealing clothes, and donned. ten–centimeter high heels, showing off her long legs. She was confident that no man could resist her allure.
Indeed, Luther had also taken a good look at Abbie up and down.
The head of the Finance Department? Wouldn’t that be Rose’s superior?
Then she falsely claimed that her surname was Edwards, deceiving the foreign bodyguard with prosopagnosia to let her in.
Luther immediately scoffed, “Do you either think others are impostors, or you want to be an impostor yourself? Do you have a hole in your brain?”
Abbie was taken aback.

She hadn’t expected that the first thing Luther said, without any courtesy, was to start cursing directly.
“Mr. Sullivan, there might have been a misunderstanding between us.” Abbie tried to maintain her charming smile, “Rose had told me earlier that she couldn’t complete the interview task, so I misunderstood that she had found someone else to fill in…”
“Did you think I wasn’t there at the time?” Luther retorted, “I accidentally picked up the phone, I heard your conversation from start to finish, clear as day. Alright, I don’t want to waste my breath on you anymore, you should leave, or else I’ll call someone.”
Abbie was not content.
She was usually arrogant and proud, never bowing her head in front of/ any man, except for Darrin.
She didn’t believe that if she couldn’t handle Darrin, she couldn’t handle other men.
“Mr. Sullivan…” She moved towards Luther, wrapping her arms around his waist, “Give me another chance.”
“Get out!” Luther shoved Abbie away as if stung by a scorpion. He stormed to the door, unable to contain his anger. “Is anyone there? Are you all dead? Get this shameless woman out of here!”
Abbie was dragged out, Luther’s angry reprimand to the bodyguards still echoing in the corridor, “Are you blind? Does Ms. Edwards look like that? Is Ms. Edwards that ugly? You let that kind of thing in, do you know how dirty that is? I want to change rooms!”
Abbie couldn’t believe everything she had been through.
She walked to the hotel’s restroom, looking at the woman in the mirror, her makeup exquisite, her beauty radiant and enchanting. But… Luther had dared to defame her! To despise her!
The disgust in his eyes was definitely not fake.
Thinking about his recent reaction, Abbie was so angry that she trembled.
Yes, Rose was beautiful, but she also considered herself no less attractive. She never lacked suitors, but why did they… whether it was Darrin or Luther, treat Rose like a goddess and her like dirt?
Abbie finally couldn’t bear it, covered her mouth, and forced herself not to cry out loud.
After calming her emotions for a full half hour, she finally went out, intending to leave.
Not long after she had walked away, there were two figures standing shoulder to shoulder ahead, which startled her…
When Abbie was taking the elevator downstairs, her palms were full of
She walked with her head down, in a hurry. Suddenly, she bumped into someone.
“Ah!” Abbie’s heels were too high, she suddenly twisted her ankle and fell straight to the ground.
However, the other party had grabbed her hand, preventing her from making a fool of herself.
“Abbie? What are you doing here?” The person who was bumped into was actually Rose.
Abbie, leaning on Rose for support, stood up, straightened her clothes, and tried to hide the panic on her face. “I thought you went back to rest and nurture your pregnancy, how come you’re here?”
Rose didn’t respond to her words, instead she counter–questioned, “Has my resignation report been approved?”
“Don’t you know to go see for yourself?” Abbie asked menacingly.
How could she possibly approve?
It had already been rejected by Rose.
It was impossible that Rose didn’t know. It was clear that they were
mocking her with this matter.
She waved and left.
Rose stood in place for a while, looking down, flicking the… the miniature camera… she had just taken from Abbie.
Abbie didn’t notice such a heavy thing was missing, she was too busy being flustered.
It seemed that something extraordinary must have been captured in here…
