Mistaking a Magnate for a Male Escort by Mr Magnate
“Sharon!” Zachary came out to personally welcome her and even opened his arms wide.
Sharon shoved a spaced-out Charlotte aside and ran in her heels toward Zachary before leaping into his arms.
Charlotte was in a complete daze as she witnessed the ordeal.
“Why didn’t you tell me you were coming to H City?”
Zachary led Sharon into the meeting room with an arm around her shoulder.
“I wanted to give you a surprise!”
Sharon sounded as soft as cotton candy while she spoke, and her eyes couldn’t stop shining.
“Well, you’ve succeeded.”
Charlotte remained in a daze even after Zachary’s figure disappeared from her sight.
Am I seeing things?
Am I hallucinating?
The mighty, defiant Zachary Nacht, who always treated others like they were beneath him, had never once personally welcomed a guest, let alone behave so affectionately in front of everyone.
No one’s ever going to believe it if he says there’s nothing going on between the two of them!
Didn’t he just make love to me so passionately two mornings ago? Then, he took care of me at night, and we slept in each other’s arms. Why is he being so nice to another woman now?
Besides, didn’t he say I’d be the only woman for him?
Who is this Sharon, then?
“Charlotte. Charlotte! Charlotte!”
Lucy called out to her three times, but it was only after giving her a light shove that the latter finally returned to her senses. “Huh?”
“Why are you spacing out like that?” Lucy growled with her brows creased. “You just got back after such a long break. Why are you still behaving this way?”
“You’d better stop that, or you are looking for the ax,” Lucy warned. “Snap out of it and come help out in the meeting room.”
Charlotte drank a glassof water and took a deep breath. Then, she followed Lucy into the meeting room.
Lucy had other matters to take care of, so she arranged for Charlotte to prepare some documents with the other secretaries.
All the major shareholders of Divine Corporation were here today, in addition to high-level executives of four other companies. In short, everyone here was a big shot.
Despite the tense atmosphere, everyone seemed to be trying their very best to butter Sharon up.
“You’re really something else, Ms. Blackwood. You’re just like your father!”
“Right? You took over the company at such a young age. You definitely have a bright future ahead!”
“You and Mr. Nacht are childhood sweethearts, and you’re now joining hands in the business. You’re a match made in heaven!”
“That’s right! Ms. Blackwood and the senior Mr. Nacht were talking about this when I last met them.”
“Since we’re about to begin our collaboration on the coastal project, why don’t you two think about getting married while at it?”
The last words were spoken by one of the directors of Synder Group. From the tone of his voice, the man was testing the waters with a hint of eagerness.
Everyone turned to Zachary and Sharon, seemingly waiting for them to speak.
With a flushed face, Sharon gazed at Zachary lovingly.
Meanwhile, Charlotte, who was carrying a pile of documents in her hands, couldn’t help but turn to Zachary upon hearing the conversation.
Her heart beat so frantically that it could practically leap out of her chest.
“What are you doing?” Lucy hissed. “Everyone else is giving out the documents, but you’re just standing here!”
Charlotte took a deep breath and hastily joined the other secretaries.
“We’ll be talking about work matters only,” Zachary responded briefly.
“He’s right. We’re here to discuss our collaboration, so please stop teasing us,” Sharon chimed in with a grin. “It’s the first time Divine Corporation and Synder are working together, and I’ve just taken over as head, so I’m looking forward to everyone’s support!”
“But of course!” the Synder executive exclaimed. “With Divine Corporation and Synder Group working together, I know we’ll go far!”
“The air used to be so tense whenever we came over for meetings. But with you around, Ms. Blackwood, the atmosphere has lightened up now.”
