Chapter 245: You Go With Him
Translator: End less Fantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The word “hate” was like a highly sharp blade, cutting a bloody wound in John’s heart. His expression suddenly turned cold. “1 know what I’m doing. 1 don’t need you to remind me.”
Hearing his cold tone, Selena knew that he was angry. She pursed her lips and fell silent.
Just then, John’s phone rang in the quiet study, breaking the strange atmosphere.
John took the phone and pressed it to his ear. The person on the other end of the phone said something and he stood up. After hanging up, he picked up the car keys on the table and walked out quickly.
“Did something happen to Serene?” Selena followed him out of the study.
“Chris Grant’s condition suddenly worsened and he was hospitalized.” John didn’t even have time to change his clothes. He went straight down the stairs in his home clothes.
“Should 1 come?” Selena walked to the stairs.
John tilted his head slightly, his thin lips slightly lifted, and his cold voice was harsh and heartless. “I’m just going to see when he’ll die.”
At this time, the servant had already fallen asleep. If anyone else heard this, they would definitely be shocked. As a son, he was actually not worried about his father, but when he would die.
Anyone who heard these words would feel that it was disgraceful, but Selena’s expression was normal. Her gentle voice was as usual. “Drive carefully at night.”
It was half a month later when Serenity saw Calvin Gilbert again. When it was time to get off work, she tidied up her desk, turned off her computer, and was about to get off work when Caleb walked over. “Serene, President Jones has a dinner party later. Go with him.”
He was Gabriel’s assistant. Shouldn’t he be following him?
“What about you?” she asked curiously.
Caleb’s expression was unnatural. “My mom arranged a blind date, so I don’t have time after work. Meanwhile, Francesca hasn’t been feeling well these two days, so can you accompany President Jones?”
It was easy to get sick after the cool of autumn. Several people in the secretary’s office were sick. Francesca had caught a cold for three to four days.
It was not easy for her to go to work sick. She could not let go to social gatherings sick, right?
Caleb’s last sentence was very polite. She was a member of the secretary’s office so there was no reason for her not to go with Gabriel. However, Caleb’s tone sounded like he was asking for her opinion.
“Alright.” Serenity smiled gently and winked at him playfully. “Good luck on that blind date.”
Caleb felt even more awkward at her teasing. He smiled shyly and told her the time and place of the dinner. He handed her the car keys and left.
Serenity glanced at the president’s office. Caleb had said that the dinner was at seven o’clock in the evening. It was only half-past five, so there was still an hour and a half left.
She sat down again and turned on her computer. The entire secretary’s office was empty and quiet.
She had already finished her work when she was about to get off work. She had nothing to do at the moment, so she casually clicked on the entertainment news.
When it was 6:20 pm, she turned off her computer and went to the president’s office. She raised her hand to knock on the door, but the door was pulled open from the inside. Her hand froze in mid-air.
When she met Gabriel’s deep and calm eyes, her heart skipped a beat. She retracted her hand that was suspended in mid-air and said, “President Jones, Caleb said that you have a dinner party tonight. It’s about time.”
Gabriel had one hand on the doorknob while his other hand was holding his suit jacket. His black shirt was tied with a grayish-blue striped tie, and appeared very regal..
