lt;pgt;At that moment, he could not be concerned with anything else as it was more important that he calmed
Lily down first. Nathaniel‘s words made Lily laugh. These were the words Lily had been hoping to hear
for years, but now they sound ironic. Marriage? In his dreams!
lt;pgt;“That‘s unnecessary. It’s easy if you want to prove it,” Lily said with a soft sigh, putting her mocking
lt;pgt;Seeing her expression, Nathaniel thought he had convinced Lily to change her mind.
lt;pgt;He stepped forward and continued persuading her. “That‘s right. We should trust each other. You‘ve
always been there for me through thick and thin. It‘ll be the same this time, right?
lt;pgt;“Alright. I have a way to prove that you‘re not having an affair with Melanie and to save the company
from its current predicament,” Lily said while nodding.
lt;pgt;“What wayis that?” Nathaniel asked eagerly, thinking how great it would be to kill two birds with one
lt;pgt;He had been trying to smooth over the situation and the media for the past few days, but to no avail, as
public opinion remained negative. The company had suffered significant harm, as demonstrated by the
latest sales volume. Reputation and credibility are essential for a rising company like MN Inc.
lt;pgt;Lily could see the unease in Nathaniel. At least he was right about one thing. Every time he
encountered difficulties in the past, she helped him through them. Lily did her best to come up with new
products and ideas, believing that she was working hard for both their futures, but how stupid was she?
“It‘s simple, really. We‘ll go back to the press conference right now for a final clarification. You‘ll informlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;the media and reporters that I made all of MN Inc.’s past perfumes. All prior awards were also won
because of my efforts. Would you do it?” Lily smiled and asked calmly.
lt;pgt;Nathaniel stared at her in disbelief. She was two steps ahead of him, yet he could feel the pressure
from her, which made him gasp.
lt;pgt;“You‘re sending me to my death,” Nathaniel said each word through gritted teeth.
lt;pgt;Lily laughed out loud, “How‘s that possible? Isn’t it the truth? I was the one who painstakingly made all
of MN Inc.‘s best–selling perfumes in recent years. All you have to do is speak the truth. It‘s not so
difficult, is it?”
lt;pgt;“Lily, you never cared about all this before. Why now? Are fame and glory more important to you than
lt;pgt;Nathaniel clearly refused to do what she asked, so he accused her in return. It was as though Lily was
the one deceiving everyone. Fame? Glory?
lt;pgt;In the past, Nathaniel had used these rhetorics to coax her into staying away from the limelight. Lily
foolishly remained in the back and sacrificed herself for him. He still wanted to use these cliched words
to suppress her now?
lt;pgt;“Of course, it‘s important. I didn‘t care about it before, but now, I do! Fame, money, and fairness. Can
you afford to give me these?” Lily smiled as she asked, raising her lovely brows.lt;/pgt;
