Chapter 191 Baffled
Elisa returned to her senses and looked at the door. “You may enter.”
Standing right at the door, Albert quickly opened it and smiled at her. “Master Iris, I have some questions to ask you.”
“Take a seat.” Her eyes flickered when she said that.
He walked to her with a bright smile, making him a person who could be easily approached.
Then, he passed the files and folders to Elisa before explaining, “I’m in charge of a case recently, and I thought I could win for sure. However, my opponent suddenly retrieved a piece of solid evidence, and I couldn’t find the points to refute him. Can you have a look?”
He did not proceed to explain the details, for everyone already knew about Elisa’s capabilities.
Elisa looked at the files in her hand with a calm expression on her beautiful face. At that moment, she had already calmed herself down.
Taking this opportunity, Albert appraised her, not with the look that a man would give a woman, but with a look of admiration for his senior.
Elisa ignored him and passed the files back to him after perusing them.
“Your direction is correct, but you missed the main point.”
Albert immediately froze as if he had suddenly recalled something.
Elisa then gave a brief explanation. “The seventh point.”
With that, she stretched her fair and slender fingers to point at the seventh part of his handwritten notes. After reading it over, he immediately returned to his senses and replied to her gratefully, “Thank you so much, master!”
With a pause, she said half-jokingly, “That makes me seem so old.”
He guffawed loudly and replied, “Alright, I’ll call you Ms. Benett then. Thanks a lot for that. I won’t disturb you now.”
Elisa nodded without uttering another word, but she sank into deep thoughts as she looked at his back.
His name doesn’t ring a bell, but he looks familiar to me.
His unique facial features made him look like he was born to interracial parents. Though she had never seen him, he felt very familiar to her. Her eyebrows were knitted into a frown until he reached the door. Then, she blurted out, “Wait.”
He paused and turned around to smile at her. “Anything else, Ms. Benett?”
“We’ve…” she started hesitantly, but she felt the question was too sudden. However, just as she shook her head, wanting to let the matter rest, he continued her sentence with a smile.
“We’ve met before.”
Elisa was stunned to hear that. She looked at him subconsciously with a dazed look in her eyes.
He merely said with a grin, “It’s been ten years, so it’s perfectly normal that you don’t remember it anymore.”
With that, he turned around and walked outside, not wanting to bring up their past.
He won’t tell me that we’ve met if he doesn’t feel like it, but why did he bring up the subject without any further explanation? she wondered.
At that instant, she could not figure out the reasons for that.
As the door slowly closed, she did not push him any further.
Taking a deep breath, she thought, Forget it. Even if we’ve met, it might not have been important anyway. Otherwise, I would remember who he is. I still have many other important things to handle, so I shouldn’t be distracted by this.
Just as she was about to think of her next step, her phone suddenly rang. In this silent space, the ringtone was quite loud.
