Chapter 137: Wait And See
The next morning, Ayla was done packing up and was about to go out when the doorbell suddenly rang.She opened the door and found out that it was Brian.She thought maybe it was the most polite he had ever been.
“Mr.Clark? So you do know how to use the doorbell.I thought it was not you,” Ayla said indifferently.
Her clothes made her look more slender and taller.
She was wearing a high-necked shirt with black lace, slim black trousers, and light-colored high heels.
Brian stared at her for a moment and said, “Shall we go out now?”
“I’m so sorry if you have to pick me up, Mr.Clark.Though I can go to the airport by myself,” Ayla said.
She smiled indifferently as if nothing had happened yesterday.
Last night, Brian sent her back and left after.
But this morning, he could see how she smiled leisurely.
Had she forgotten what happened yesterday, or was she just trying to turn a blind eye to him? He wanted her to hate him and remember him, but she would not let his wish come true, would she? Or if it was not hatred, then it must be love.
Ayla looked out the window while sitting in the passenger seat.The car was speeding on the road.
No one spoke while on the way.
Brian was not the type of man who would initiate talking or saying sorry even though he had forced Ayla to have s*x with him last night.
As for Ayla, to avoid everything that might happen, all she could do was act as if nothing had happened.
The car finally stopped at the gate of the airport.
Ayla saw that Yareli and Linda were already waiting there.
Yareli looked deep into Ayla’s eyes and said, “Thank you for all your hard work these days.”
“Ms.Evans, that’s what I should do.”
Ayla shook her head and smiled. “You’re so awesome, Wenny.You’ve just been in Antawood for a month, and only by the twenty design drafts you already won the favor of Mr.Clark.You are not that simple a figure!”
Even with the presence of Yareli, Linda teased Ayla anyway. Ayla was about to say something when Brian came over and said, “Miss Linda, your design is also excellent.With you and Ms.Evans here this time, I’m sure that our Clark Group’s fashion season will be more successful.”
After Linda heard what Brian said, there was a wave of joy that crossed her heart.She thought that if Mr.Clark would like her, she would not need to work hard as a designer anymore.
“Mr.Clark, since you said so, I will make sure to do my best.I just hope I won’t disappoint you.” Linda said those with a smile on her face.
She walked up to Brian but didn’t hug him.
The woman just stretched out her one hand.
Brian also stretched out his and firmly shook hands with Linda.
He thought that this woman was not that simple, though she was capable in work.He had known her a little since they had a talk with each other in Starlight several times.
Brian appreciated such capable women.
While Ayla was watching the two talking, her intuition told her that Linda had a crush on Brian.She thought it was good for Brian if there was another woman who would accompany him.
After all, he was also a man who liked a novelty.
Ayla realized that if Linda was here, maybe she could finally leave then.
In the car, Linda sat in the passenger seat voluntarily without asking anyone.
Ayla was just relaxed and didn’t feel angry at all.
Yareli also noticed what was happening.
She could see that Wenny was so indifferent about the situation, so Yareli didn’t speak and just remained silent.
Besides, when she was in Italy, she knew that Wenny already had a boyfriend.
However, Yareli also noticed how Brian looked at Ayla affectionately.
To see such an eager look on Brian’s cold face had made her a little surprised. Ayla saw the surprise in Yareli’s face, so she said, “Ms.Evans, please have a rest! It was such a long flight.You must be very tired.”
She also noticed Brian’s gaze at her.She could feel how unhappy he was right now, but she still pretended not to know anything.
“I’m fine, Wenny.” Yareli looked at Ayla and added, “I used to travel around by plane.So for me, there is no jet lag at all.”
Brian drove the car and stopped over to the hotel.He said, “Ms.Evans, you can stay here for these days.Come and have a look.See if you are satisfied with it.”
Yareli looked around at the cozy presidential suite and said, “Mr.Clark’s arrangement is always so considerate.You always make me feel at home whenever I come here.”
“I’m glad to know that you’re satisfied with it.You can take a good rest now.The meeting is scheduled for tomorrow morning.Is that okay with you? What do you think?” Brian smiled and said to Yareli.
She nodded and said, “Of course, no problem.You can go and take a rest too, Linda!”
“It’s my first time here in Antawood, Ms.Evans.I want to go out for a walk, but I’m not sure if Mr.Clark is willing to go with me, so I will get familiar with the environment here.” Linda flashed Brian a sweet smile.
“Mr.Clark, are you willing to have a walk with me?” she asked.
However, Brian turned and looked at Ayla.
Then Ayla said, “Mr.Clark, since Linda has said that, I think you should go for a walk with her to help her get familiar with the environment.It will be helpful when you are working together in the future.”
After hearing what Ayla said, Brian spoke with a calm smile.
“Okay.You can come with us then, Wenny.Remember when you first came here? I was too busy with my work at that time to accompany you to get familiar with the environment here.Since I’m free today, I’ll take you out for a ride.”
Brian was aware that Ayla was just trying to push him into someone else’s arms.
Well, she had to stop because he wouldn’t let her get her own way.
Also, it was just a tour around Antawood.
Then why not go with them? But Brian saw how Ayla shook her head and refused.
“I’m sorry, Mr.Clark.I’m afraid I’ll turn you down for now because I’m not free for today,” she said.
He hesitated for a moment and said after, “Since you’re not free today then Miss Linda, let’s just go for another day.Is that okay with you?”
Linda gritted her teeth and glared at Ayla, thinking that this woman would only hinder her plans.
But when Linda faced Brian, she just smiled and said, “It’s okay, Mr.Clark.Since you have said so, then I’m not going to force you.”
Ayla shook her head as she turned around and walked out of the room.She just wanted Linda to get along well with Brian.
But he had caused trouble to Ayla.She knew that her unintentional words had only made Linda hate her even more.
It looked like Brian was trying to give Ayla a pretty hard time. Well…They would wait and see what would happen.
Brian sincerely smiled when he saw that Ayla was walking quickly towards the elevator.
He followed her.
She couldn’t escape from him at all.
No matter how many tricks she had, he wouldn’t let her succeed and do what she wanted.
While standing in the long corridor, Linda watched the two stride into the elevator.
It hadn’t been that long since Wenny came here, yet she had already wrapped Mr.Clark around her fingers.
Linda felt like the other woman had just given her such a considerable embarrassment.
However, Linda was not weak and easy to be bullied.
It was better for Wenny if she wouldn’t dare to compete with Linda because Wenny was not qualified at all! Yareli came out and looked at her.
“Linda, is there something wrong?” she asked.
Linda just shook her head and said, “Oh, nothing.I have to go now, Ms.Evans.I still need to prepare for the meeting tomorrow.”
Yareli knew what could be running on Linda’s mind right now.However, she just didn’t say anything because she didn’t want her official business to be affected.
So she just nodded and said, “Right, I know.You should go ahead.”
Linda turned around and started to walk back to her room.
