Chapter 294: Goodbye Kelly
Seeing Kelly again makes me feel like a lifetime away.
From kindergarten to high school graduation, they had been neighbors in the same neighborhood, and then they met again a few years ago. When her father died, the first time she knew about Kelly’s life, Serena felt that life was exciting enough. She never thought that it was just the beginning.
To be honest, when she saw Kelly again, she was calm, just like looking at a stranger. The past grudges had all been dispelled in the past few years. If it weren’t for the few days ago, Lawyer Ayesa mentioned to her that Betensh Capital Company wanted to hire her as a lawyer and showed her the relevant information, Kelly no longer existed in her memory, even though she had seen it in the hospital in the next city.
At this time, seeing her in some simple law firms made waves in her heart.
Kelly is still the same, intellectually elegant, but the arrogance in her eyes is missing, and when she sees Serena, she takes the initiative to smile at her.
Karen made tea and hurried over to introduce
“Serena, this client asked for you by name.” Then he whispered and waited for half an hour.
“Well, let’s go to the conference room,” she said to Kelly, her tone calm, as if she had met a real stranger. She is not the Serena she used to be, and her moods are not visible in front of customers.
When they arrived at the conference room, after closing the door, the two sat across the conference table and looked at each other face to face, as if
Chapter 284 Boodbye Kelly,
they were in a contest, waiting for the other party to speak first.
This time, Serena was calm, but she didn’t speak, not even saying hello. With her understanding of Kelly, everything goes to the Three Treasures Hall, or in other words, it must be no good thing for her to come to her.
In this contest, she won.
Kelly said first, “Serena, long time no see”
“Yeah.” She was still tense, thinking that if you have something to say, just say it. We really don’t have a relationship that can exchange pleasantries.
Kelly gave a rare wry smile and then said, “Presumably, you should know all about my recent situation.”
How is she doing?
I’m sorry. Serena really doesn’t understand very well. She only knows that her career has not been smooth in the past few years, but life, ups and downs are normal. She doesn’t have the energy to pay attention to irrelevant people.
“How is your mother?” Seeing her expressionless face, Kelly changed the subject and asked about her mother’s condition.
Serena’s heart suddenly hurt. If it weren’t for Kelly’s sincere eyes at this time, she would have thought Kelly was deliberately trying to stimulate her.
“He died a few years ago,” she answered truthfully.
When Kelly heard the news, she looked at her in shock, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know.” She really didn’t know. After successfully separating her and Penn, she thought she had won, so she concentrated on her career and bought New Vision Company.

“I accept your apology for my mother.” Serena was calm, and she really let go of her past grudges.
Perhaps because she accidentally learned that her mother had passed away, Kelly was indeed touched, so she did not continue to say further, let alone mention the purpose of coming today.
Serena didn’t ask, the two sat quietly for a while, and then Kelly stood up to say goodbye. This is too inconsistent with her usual strong style, so people really change, right?
Karen is responsible for taking Kelly to the door and asking Serena when she comes back
“Is it a new customer?”
Lawyer Ayesa called Serena to the work room, poured her a cup of health tea, and asked her slowly
“Miss Bell, what are you looking for?”
“No, I don’t know.”
“Betensh Capital Company is suing her for fraud, and Betensh Capital Company wants to hire you as a lawyer. She must have heard the news.”
“I don’t plan to take the Betensh Capital Company case.” In fact, you don’t have to think about it to know that Betensh Capital Company has its own strong legal department, why did you come to represent her? It must be inextricably linked to Penn, and his influence in NY need not be doubted.
“This case is quite large, and if you take it, the commission will be high.” Lawyer Ayesa was entrusted with persuading Serena to take the case.

“Sorry Lawyer Ayesa, I want to accompany the children recently, and I don’t want to take on a case that requires a long–distance business trip.”
“OK. I respect your opinion.”
Lawyer Ayesa has communicated with her twice and knows that she is firm–willed and will not pick up if she says no, and will no longer force
Serena had a few days of peace of mind, picking up and dropping off the children every day, then going to work, getting off work, and relaxing for a few days. The only thing that made her a little anxious was that Darcy was a little abnormal on this business trip, no longer video every night like before, just Send voice or type to talk about the current situation.
The content is also very simple, basically he is training, this task is relatively heavy, training late every night, so he does not disturb her rest with video.
Serena believed it, because every time he sent him a message, he would reply in time.
Mrs. Kirby came back from a trip, came to her house for a meal, mentioned Darcy’s recent business trip, and said
He was reluctant to leave Hartford after he met you. He used to lead the team out and often disappeared for two or three months. Don’t worry, he still knows how to send messages to you every day, and he has made
Since then, Serena’s hanging heart has been completely put down.
Two days later, Kelly appeared in the law firm again, Serena received her and invited her to the conference room. Kelly’s visit again was expected by Serena, knowing that Kelly was not a character who gave up casually, but did not know Kelly’s purpose.
Chapter 294: Goodbye Kelly
“Serena, I need your help.”
Serena was stunned for a moment, I don’t know why, it’s really unprecedented to make the proud Kelly bow her head and beg her.
Kelly continued, “You should already know that my investment has failed in the past few years. This investment from Betensh Capital Company is my only chance to turn over, so I don’t want to miss it and have some crooked thoughts.”
Serena already knows about her relationship with Betensh Capital Company through information provided by Lawyer Ayesa, so answer immediately
“Kelly, you should have expected today’s situation when you were thinking about it. I’m sorry, I can’t help you with this matter, I didn’t accept the commission of Betensh Capital Company. Take ten thousand steps back, even if I do, then we are opposites, and I can’t help you.”
Her words stunned Kelly, “Betensh Capital Company asked you to represent you?” She obviously didn’t know about this.
“Then why are you looking for me?” Serena was also confused.
“Betensh Capital Company has sued me and I would like to ask you to be my defence counsel. Serena, you are the only one I can turn to.”
