Chapter 64 Am I So Detestable?
Jennifer looked at her spitefully. “What nonsense are you saying? In our current society, a woman has to be capable. Who knows what trouble we might encounter when we get married?”
Albert was speechless when he heard that. “You have some serious issues. It’s perfectly fine for a woman to focus on her career, but it doesn’t mean that other women have to take advantage of men to do so. Ms. Benett has her own career; you better not be so prejudiced toward her.”
“You!” Jennifer was enraged after hearing that, but Albert had already started walking out of the room with his phone in his hand.
Meanwhile, Elisa had also walked out of the building with Will.
Appraising him from head to toe, she asked, “So, how may I help you?”
“Yes, I have something to speak to you about, but let’s go for lunch before that.”
She frowned at him. “I’m not hungry yet. Why don’t you just tell me here?”
“Even if you aren’t hungry, you should still eat. If you only eat when you are hungry, it will be bad for your health.”
She arched her eyebrows at him in amusement. “Are you so health conscious, Mr. Darcey?”
He nodded nonchalantly. “That’s right, and I’m getting hungry now. What I’m about to tell you is related to the lawsuit with Wickam Group – it is very important.”
She frowned at him again. “You said the same thing last time.”
And he didn’t tell me anything last time. I have a feeling that he is just tricking me into having lunch with him.
He smiled upon hearing that. “I promise that I’m not lying to you this time. Let’s talk it over while we eat.”
After a moment of hesitation, she finally nodded. “Alright. Give me a moment, please.”
With that, she walked back to her seat and noticed Jennifer’s resentful face, looking as though she wanted Elisa to go away.
Though surprised, Elisa did not comment on it and merely walked outside once again after taking her phone.
After she got into the car, Will arched an eyebrow at her upon seeing that she was looking at her phone. Then, he got closer to her to help her with the seatbelt, making her immediately freeze.
When she realized what he was trying to do, she quickly took the seat belt and said, “I’ll do it myself.”
His eyebrow arched upward. “Am I so detestable?”
“You’re a man after all.” She lowered her head and made sure that the seat belt was fastened. Finally, she put her phone down after sending a message to Charli.
However, he merely smiled. “Now that both of us are single, we could have something more than that.”
“Please stop with such jokes, Mr. Darcey.” Clearly, Elisa did not want to continue the topic, and she did not trust him.
Half of what he said were jokes, and he kept flirting with her. Even though it was normal, she did not like it, and it was still unacceptable to her.
Hence, she swore not to marry such a dangerous man.
It was true that she did not believe in love anymore, and she knew that it was very likely that she would have to marry someone as part of a business partnership. Even so, she would never choose Will, for she deemed him too dangerous of a man.
Since he was currently driving, she did not ask him about the news he wanted to tell her about.
When they arrived at a restaurant, he finally spoke. “Go in first and just mention my name. I’ll be with you shortly after I park the car.”
She nodded and got out of the car.
However, there were many coincidences. As soon as she walked into the restaurant, she noticed a few women standing around, surrounding another person.
Her gaze turned cold as she decided to ignore them, however Linda, having sharp eyes, spotted her and smiled before saying, “Hey, Elisa.”
