Chapter 68 An Encounter at the Exhibition

As the door slammed shut, Natalie almost lost her balance. She managed to walk unsteadily to the table and poured herself a glass of lemon water.

Ever since Henry disappeared from Natalie’s world, she had become quite indifferent, rarely experiencing strong emotions.

It had been a long time since she felt this angry… She couldn’t even remember the last time she was angry.

Julian’s behavior today really angered her.

Sipping the refreshing lemon water, Natalie’s breathing gradually calmed down.

She walked slowly up the second floor.

The second floor of the villa had large floor-to-ceiling windows adorned with dark gray curtains. Natalie pulled back the curtains and looked outside through the expansive glass.

She wanted to know what Julian was thinking.

Everything he had said and done today was completely different from her impression of him.

Indeed, as soon as the unrequited love returned, the man’s IQ directly turned negative.

Natalie leaned against the sofa, quietly observing at the man downstairs.

Julian stood in place, with a cold and stern side face, just like the man in her dreams.

But the two are completely different.

In Julian’s eyes, Natalie could see his anger and sharpness.

The bodyguard, who had been standing respectfully in the distance, noticed the CEO’s unusual emotions and quickly walked over to him.

“President, should I open the door?”

Julian stared at the luxurious door with intense anger and sharpness in his eyes, as if he could see through

Just a few days after leaving him, Natalie had completely let go of her disguise and was no longer willing to pretend. She even dared to be so defiant towards him.

So, this was her true nature. The previous gentleness had nothing to do with the present her!

The bodyguard looked at the president’s increasingly dark face and tentatively spoke, “President… Should I

open it?”

There was no answer.

Natalie raised her eyebrows, and the sound insulation in the villa was too good. she could only see the man’s

However, being able to witness Julian’s rage did help alleviate her mood.

Julian stared at the villa for a while before slowly speaking, “No, let’s go.”

The crimson in his eyes faded away, returning to the indifference of the past, indicating that he had regained his composure.

“Okay. “The bodyguard didn’t dare to speculate on his boss’s intentions and quickly opened the car door.

Julian slowly re-tied his tie with one hand. The fragmented gold tie reflected varying degrees of light as he


creating a mix of bright and dim reflections that accentuated his cold and hardened face.

Julian sat in the car and leisurely stroked his chin with his slender fingers.

Even Natalie can get the authorization letter, why couldn’t he?

Without Natalie, he could have been fully authorized.

The Maybach gradually disappeared from Natalie’s view. She pursed her lips and stood up from the sofa.

She had personally mailed the authorization letter to Julian. It was a golden opportunity, but he had rejected it, tearing the letter apart instead.

No matter what reason he had, she will not send it again.

Natalie went downstairs again, leaving behind the glass of lemon water. Instead, she poured herself a glass of amber-colored wine. The wine in the tall glass intermingled between a faint yellow and intense red.

She swirled the tall glass.

One will cross the bridge when he comes to it. If Graham Group were really reduced to….

Since she was able to save Graham Group with single-handedly before, she would surely have other ways to

handle this time…

Natalie took a sip of wine and decided not to meddle anymore.

But what if Julian came back to the laboratory again?

With that thought in mind, Natalie picked up her phone from the table and called Ryan.

The call connected almost instantly, and Ryan’s voice came through with delight, “Dr. Spears,


do you


Ryan’s voice always gave off a well-behaved impression, and coupled with his slightly excited tone. It inadvertently brightened Natalie’s mood.

“Ryan, I would like to ask you to increase the security measures of the laboratory.”

“Okay, “Ryan agreed without hesitation.

“Has someone discovered the laboratory?” Ryan replied and realized something wrong.

Natalie didn’t speak, Ryan considered it as an agreement.

In an instant, he associated it with the car he saw parked outside the building that day.

It seemed his vigilance was too weak. That car was indeed very suspicious.

Ryan pursed his lips on the other end of the phone, and his face slightly tense. He must be more vigilant. He had to heighten his vigilance. If anything happened to Dr. Spears in the laboratory, not only would Mr. Johnson not let him off the hook, he would also regret it for the rest of his life.

“Sorry, Doctor. Spears. It’s my fault. I saw a car outside the laboratory when I mailed the authorization letter, but I didn’t pay much attention to it.”

Ryan immediately admitted his mistake.

“I will enhance the security system and ensure that no one else can enter the laboratory.”

Natalie’s tone was very light, “It’s not your fault.”

“Julian has bribed the security at the side entrance, and he entered the laboratory through it. It’s normal for you to not suspect anything when you saw a car.”


Was it the same Julian whom he knew?

He actually found the laboratory? What for? Was it for the authorization letter or for Dr. Spears?

Ryan held the phone with one hand, and unconsciously clenched his fist in the other, without realizing it.

“Thank you for your help, Ryan.”

“Sure, you can count on me.” His tone was resolute, nodding vigorously on the other end of the phone.

Natalie hung up the phone.

What was the relationship between Julian and Dr. Spears? Ryan slowly put down the phone, his brows furrowing deeply.

He felt that he had become increasingly greedy, always wanting to learn more about Dr. Spears, and even felt his thoughts were out of control

The next morning.

Because Philip was still abroad and couldn’t be traced, and even his phone was unreachable, almost all the major matters of Glory Group fell on Natalie’s shoulders.

After reluctantly taking over the work of Philip, the CEO, Natalie realized how complicated the CEO’s job was.

On ordinary days, Philip appeared carefree, indulging in worldly pleasures, making it seem like being a CEO was easy. She didn’t expect that there would be so many things to worry about.

Today, she had to go to the exhibition to place an order for a batch of medicinal materials.

After having breakfast, Natalie changed into a more low key black dress. After all, she was representing Philip, and it was better to keep a low profile.

Natalie originally wanted to notify Ryan to come with her. The message was already typed in the input box. But after careful consideration, she decided to delete the message and drove to the exhibition alone.

The high-end pharmaceutical exhibition is was held in a quaint town located at the southernmost part of Los


The entire town had a grand scale and was well-known as a medicinal herb town throughout the country. The buildings in the town exuded an elegant charm of an ancient city, and the pointed roofs of the distant attic buildings were set against the blue sky, creating a unique atmosphere.

Natalie got off the car.


She entered a small building with pink walls and black tiles, situated by the water. The wooden doors and windows highlighted its simplicity, and there were precious horse hitching stones by the white walls.

The architecture here resembled the Spears family in New York. As soon as Natalie walked into this small town, he felt like he was back at the Spears family. She looked at these antique items and felt that everything worldly had been filtered out.

This small building was purchased by Philip specifically for the procurement of ancient medicinal materials, and the vice president had given her the key a long time in advance.

Inside the small building, there wasn’t much besides a wide variety of tea. She looked around and saw three rows of it. Santos Coffee was casually placed in the corner, forming a large pile.

Natalie raised her eyebrows when she saw the pile of Santos Coffee that had been randomly placed.

Santos Coffee was extremely rare, almost monopolized by her grandpa. There was no need to guess that Philip must have obtained it from her grandfather.

Natalie placed her bag on the sunken wooden table, poured herself a cup of tea, and after slowly savoring the beautiful scenery outside the window, she slowly walked downstairs.

As soon as she opened the wooden door of the blue-tiled small building, she saw a familiar figure not far




Julian and Henry not only had a similar complexion to Henry but also had a similar figure. So, Natalie almost immediately recognized Julian.

Natalie instinctively looked behind the man and saw a woman wearing a bias-cut dress and a pair of black leather shoes. Sure enough, Niki was also there.

In such a quaint town, Niki looked petite adorable, and refreshing.

Natalie couldn’t help but facepalm.

Is Los Angeles that small? How come she could bump into the two of them anywhere?
