Serena didn’t know why she listened to his inexplicable memories under the street lights in the neighborhood, and judging by his expression, it must not be a good memory.
“On the third day, you finally answered the phone and scolded me loudly, probably because you thought I was pestering you, I’m annoying you…” He laughed at himself, and he always remembered Serena’s yelling on the phone, vented his dislike for him in his voice, even after many years, he would still clearly remember the self–doubt that was hated from the bottom of his heart in that phone call.
Tonight, the reason why he brought up this past was because Nate and Jenny reminded him of the past and the phone call.
Serena didn’t remember the phone call at all, let alone him, those three days were the darkest moments of her life, she was only filled with sadness, grief and anger, no matter who called, the result was the
“Sorry, I’m not targeting you. During that time, some bad things happened in my family.”
“It doesn’t matter, it’s all over, but I have some regrets.” There are many things I want to say but I have no chance to say. After going abroad for many years, I come back and meet again, but because of the first meeting, I have become intimate, so that she feels, He just wanted to have sex with her, disrupting all his steps, and never said those words, even if he said them, it became her excuse for wanting to sleep.
In Serena ‘s memory, they didn’t have any intersection in high school. If it wasn’t because of Jenny or Nate, she might have forgotten the existence of this person.
“I know it’s meaningless to say these words now, but I still want to say, Serena, from the past to now, I have not only had a good impression of you, but also not only liked you. I also know that I am too arrogant, too self–righteous, and never It was only after we really got to know you that our relationship became like this.”
“Serena, can you give me a chance?”
This is his first true confession. In any case, he still wanted to fight for it, and he didn’t want to bring the relationship between the two of them to an end, because he was reluctant.
Serena’s eyes widened, unbelievable, he means, he has liked her since the first year of high school?
“It started with the song “Castle in the Sky” you played at the freshman welcome party.”
Maybe even he didn’t believe it when he said it, but he did fall in love with her at first sight, at the age when he first fell in love, and he never forgot it after years.
In fact, for many years after going abroad, he did not deliberately remember her. He was very busy with his studies and career, and he was so busy every day. He should have forgotten her long ago, but he added her Whatsapp every The last thing before going to bed at night is to look at her Whatsapp Moments. This action does not have any special meaning, it is just a habit.
Her Whatsapp Moments are lackluster. When she was in college, it was the meals in the school cafeteria, and after work, it was a takeaway set meal. He didn’t see anything else, but he could see her food preference from it.
Later, he returned to the United States to explore the market and his career was stable. When Better Future Technology Company wanted
to acquire Hands–free Intelligent Technology Company, he first thought of Serena. Because I learned from her Whatsapp Moments that she jumped to the Justice Law Office.
Originally two completely parallel lines, he could see the ends at a glance, and suddenly saw the intersection.
Nate to arrange the first meeting in NY, and it happened that Jenny also came to NY, so he had an excuse to have a dinner together. It was the first time he saw Serena so closely after many years, and the throbbing of his youth did not decrease in the slightest. It was the warm blood in his heart, rippling, beating with joy, vivid and familiar.
What happened later was completely beyond his expectations.
He originally wanted to pursue her step by step, but as soon as she came up, she gave him a strong report, leaving him helpless. At that time, he thought, well, this person has been heartless since he was a child. He waited for him for three years in high school, and even the careless Nate could see his thoughts, and this person couldn’t even remember his name. Go straight to the last step, at least let her remember him first.
These words, if said earlier, even a week earlier, Serena might be moved. But now, since he grabbed her hand, since she slapped Kelly, it meant nothing.
“Mr. Humphery, these words sound disgusting. I think Kelly is very good, and you are a great match. The important thing is that you have known each other for so many years, you know the basics, and you are also business partners. You are an enviable fairy companion.”
She is not as open–minded as she thought, and she still has to be sarcastic if she seizes the opportunity.
He wasn’t annoyed either, as if he had expected that she would say
“It’s okay, the future will last forever. Serena, we will live forever.”
“Also, Kelly and I are just friends.”
“Let’s go, I’ll watch you go upstairs.”
There is still arrogance in your bones, and you say what you want to say, and then you don’t care what your attitude is. This kind of arrogance was beyond his awareness.
Serena felt uncomfortable listening, you told me to go upstairs, I will go upstairs? I didn’t like it, I turned a corner and went to the
convenience store next door to buy something, but I was also stubborn and twisted.
Penn smiled wryly, without forcing it, and glanced at her through the glass window of the convenience store, then turned and left.
Serena didn’t have anything special to buy. Seeing that Penn had left. she took two bottles of mineral water and went home.
When I woke up the next morning. I received a call from Emma asking her to attend an industry training on intellectual property rights. strenuous. I really want to go, but I am a little embarrassed. The due diligence she is currently in charge of is still not finished.
Emma didn’t give her a chance to hesitate, “You are in charge of the due diligence part of Better Future Technology Company, and you have to work overtime at night. After that, your work arrangement is mainly to assist Wang Lv, who is in charge of intellectual property rights, which requires very professional knowledge. This industry I specially applied for the training opportunity for you, starting at 10 o’clock this morning, I sent the invitation letter and detailed address to your mailbox, hurry up.”
“Okay, I’m leaving now.”
Serena felt as if she had been slapped with chicken blood in an instant. She was very grateful to Emma, who relieved her of all links in the first project. When I went to training, I found out that Charlie Lawyer Charlie Jordan was also there. Lawyer Charlie Jordan has rich experience in intellectual property and has represented many cases, but he still came to participate in the training. He is really smarter than you, and he works harder than you, and he is under a lot of pressure.
Charlie is a “social butterfly“. As soon as the training started, he had already chatted happily with several female lawyers from other law firms next to him, and even added Whatsapp. Seeing him was like seeing her friend Blair, and she couldn’t help laughing from the bottom of her heart.
“Serena, this way.” Seeing her coming, Charlie stood up and waved to her. Then he lowered his head and said to the female lawyer who just added Whatsapp, “Sorry, my colleague is here, this is her place.”
