Chapter 290: The First Officer
Karen saw it first. She pulled Serena’s dress
“Why is Mr. Humphery here?” In her opinion, Mr. Humphery and the legal professionals present were completely two–dimensional people. He was a business elite, and these lawyers in the law association were a bit old–fashioned or old cadres.
It was amazing to see him sitting there calmly, with Director Ham and Mr. Evans on the left and right.
Serena is still calm, and with her knowledge of Penn, it’s not surprising that he’s present on any occasion.
Director Ham saw her coming and greeted, “Serena, here you are.”
She is the protagonist of this celebration banquet, so it has attracted much attention. The lawyers present all looked at her, and a large number of lawyers only heard of her but did not see her. Seeing her now, they couldn’t help but say
“I didn’t expect Serena to be so young.”
Not only young, but also very beautiful. If it weren’t for Sam’s excellent performance, from the appearance alone, they thought it was just a vase. This is probably a stereotype of a beautiful girl.
Although she is the protagonist of the victory banquet, but in terms of seniority, the table is full of her seniors, so the seat is still very particular, she took the initiative to sit opposite Director Ham and Mr. Evans, but also opposite Penn, Karen As a companion, she also sat next to her.
She is capable, low–key and humble, and she is so beautiful, so everyone’s impression of her is naturally good.
“It’s really talented from generation to generation, and we can rest assured that this responsibility will be passed on to their generation of lawyers.”
“Yeah, the future is terrible.”
Serena is still a little uncomfortable to be praised so bluntly. Hlustily humble
“The progress of this case is the result of the efforts of the seniors. I’m just stepping on the road paved by the seniors, and it’s really nothing,”
“Little Serena is too modest.” The more I look at her, the better she gets.
After praising her, I naturally have to start praising Director Ham and Mr. Evans again.
“It was Director Ham who recommended an aspiring young man like Serena to take charge of this case, and it was also Mr. Evans‘ responsibility as a legal person to resist the pressure and retry the case. No link is missing in the middle. I thank you all on behalf of everyone.”
Speaking of toasting, he did it all by himself, but he was literate and did not persuade drinking. Everyone volunteered.
And the organizer was very thoughtful, knowing that there were girls, and even set up a few bottles of fruit wine. But Serena only took a small sip, and the fruit wine was also wine, but Karen next to her thought it was delicious and drank a few more sips.
Then it was time to praise Penn, the only layman present. Although no one knew why he appeared here except for Director Ham and Mr. Evans, you saw where he was sitting, sitting between the most respected Director Ham and Mr. Evans. The status is self–evident.
These people, want to praise a person, can change the way to praise.
“I have a toast to Mr. Humphery. It is the attention of a caring person like Mr. Humphery who is full of justice in society that makes the case have

such influence. This influence is passed on from generation to generation, and it can have a deterrent effect on the whole society and the public prosecutor. The merit is boundless, the merit is boundless.”
For some reason, Serena, who was sitting opposite Penn, couldn’t help but feel funny when she heard others describe Penn with immeasurable merit. These four words were too inconsistent with him.
She was very restrained. Even though she felt funny, the corners of her lips moved and the tips of her eyebrows rose, but unexpectedly, this expression just fell into the eyes of Penn opposite.
When she casually looked at him with a hidden smile, he glared at her fiercely, probably very unhappy. Usually, being praised by others with this word instantly praised him like an old man in his 70s and 80s.
After this wave of praise, it can be regarded as the completion of the theme of this celebration banquet, so the atmosphere began to relax.
Director Ham asked her, “Has little Serena considered staying in NY and developing? She lost her talent in Hartford.” After all, it’s not a first–tier city.
Penn listened to Director Ham’s question and looked at her as if waiting for her answer. Karen next to her also put the glass of fruit wine in her hand, waiting for her Serena’s answer.
Serena said, “Thank you Director Ham, I haven’t considered it yet.”
“Are you afraid of Lawyer Ayesa? I can help you tell him. Young people, think more about the future, there are more opportunities in NY.”
“No, because my family is in Hartford, and I haven’t thought about leaving them for the time being.”
The family she mentioned mainly refers to the two children.
However, it sounded to Penn that she was referring to Darcy’s family, and
she was willing to give up a better job opportunity for that man to stay in Hartford
His eyes sank, his hand unconsciously turned the glass on the table, looked at Serena, the surrounding aura could not help but be a little lower. Serena completely ignored.
When the end of the entertainment, she took the initiative to send the lawyers to the door, one by one to say goodbye, the world is very thoughtful, and finally to leave is Director Ham and Mr. Evans, they stood at the door and Penn said something, Penn nodded, and so they passed Serena, stop
“Serena, if you want to come to NY for development, come to me anytime.” Director Ham cherished her talent and did not forget to continue digging her.
“Okay, there will definitely be many opportunities for cooperation in the future.” She replied respectfully.
Mr. Evans, on the other hand, nodded at her, said goodbye and left. He didn’t say much all night. After all, in his position, he didn’t really want to deal with lawyers. Tonight was purely for Penn.
All gone, only Penn left, ask her
“How to go back?”
“Take a taxi.” She didn’t think to answer, and didn’t want to have more
contact with him.
Tonight was supposed to be pretty good, but when she heard that Director Ham refused to go back to NY for development, she became a little cold. Looking at her now, she also carried a little danger, which made her a little flustered.
Penn glanced at her and pointed to Karen standing in the doorway.
“Are you sure you can bring her back safely?”
Karen at the door, her face crimson, leaned over the door frame and smirked at them, obviously drunk.
Karen didn’t speak the whole time just now, and she didn’t have the time to speak, so she buried her head in her meal, and then felt that the fruit wine was sweet and delicious, and she drank too much unconsciously. The fruit wine didn’t respond when it started to drink, but it had a lot of stamina, and now she went to her head.
Serena looked at her. She couldn’t beat her or scold her. It was a little difficult to pull her home alone.
Penn’s car was parked in the open plaza, and he took two or three steps to drive up to them
“Get in the car.”
He helped Serena get Karen into the back seat. Serena originally wanted to sit in the back seat, but as soon as Karen got in, she was lying on the pack seat, lying down tightly and not leaving a place for her.
Penn saw this, opened the door of the passenger car, and without peaking, looked at Serena, waiting for her to sit in the passenger car.
