When Sebastian woke up, the blanket on the bed had already been neatly folded.
It was as if no one was there before.
Sebastian rubbed between his eyebrows. He wondered, “Did I have a dream last night? That’s impossible. I clearly remember that Madeline was sleeping on that bed.”
Sebastian did not expect Madeline to be so determined.
“Maddie, why did you wake up so early today?” Louis was driving and yawning in the driver’s seat.
Madeline covered herself in a thin blanket with her eyes closed. “I’m not used to sleeping in other beds.””
“Since when do you have this habit? Why didn’t I know about that? You could even fall. asleep on the swing when you were little.” Louis exposed Madeline without hesitation.
“Shut up,” Madeline said coldly.
This time, Louis did not say a word.
He stopped the car downstairs of the Jennings Group.
Louis had to return home to deal with some matters in the Coleman family, so he dropped Madeline off and left.
Madeline, in four-inch high heels, narrowed her eyes lazily
It was already dawn, and the sunlight was a little dazzling.
“Hello, Ms. Jennings.”
“Wow, Ms. Jennings is so beautiful.”
“Ms. Jennings is so young…”
“I’m envious of Ms. Jennings’ figure.”
Madeline passed by the hall and nodded at everyone with a smile.
She was indeed the youngest female CEO of all generations.
Madeline sat on the leather seat wearily, her long hair draped on her back. “Any updates. with the investigation of Snyder Group?”
Jonas put the documents on the table. “Rowen from the Synder family took over the
development zone in the coastal area in person this time. It seems that they’re bound to get it.”
Madeline smiled contemptuously. “We’ll see if they can handle it,” she paused before continuing, “Give me Rowen’s schedule.”
Jonas glanced at the electronic screen. “Rowen will go to the racing track this afternoon.”
Madeline raised her eyes upon hearing that. “Racing? That’s interesting…” she muttered. inwardly and said, “Free up my schedule this afternoon.”
She had not raced for a long time and was looking forward to it.
“Ms. Jennings, you have no idea what kind of person Rowen is. He is well known for his brutality in Yarwood. He doesn’t show mercy to his opponents. He’s ruthless when it comes to business. Don’t go head-to-head with him if you can’t fight him,” said Jonas.
Jonas knew that Madeline was opinionated, but after all, Madeline was still a girl. Sometimes, she would be at a disadvantage.
The dark pen spun around in Madeline’s palm and then landed on the table steadily. “Okay. By the way, I’ll need you to quantify the performance of the design department to see their gross merchandise value. Label out the bottom five. Those who lie around doing. nothing can pack their things and leave,” Madeline said coldly.
She just checked the company’s financial status, and the result was not promising.
Adrian and those old geezers were about to squeeze the company dry.
“I’ll summarize it right away,” said Jonas.
Jonas brought Madeline another half-sugar coffee before he got back to work.
Madeline rubbed between her eyebrows. She did not sleep well last night, so she was still feeling a little dizzy.
She muttered inwardly, “It’s all because of Sebastian…”
At this moment, Sebastian had just returned home with a gloomy expression, and his eyes were cold.
When Yvette saw that her son was finally home, she asked, distressed, “Sebastian, did you work overtime last night?”
“Yeah,” replied Sebastian.
“Come over for breakfast. Winnie has prepared the food.” Yvette waved at her son.
Sebastian was not in the mood to eat anything. He was thinking about Madeline. “How could that woman leave without saying a word? Does she even take me seriously?”
“Sebastian, come and have some breakfast. It’s the peak season for the company now. You need to take care of your health.” Yvette sighed worriedly.
Yvette started regretting a little the moment Madeline left.
The truth was, Madeline was really nice to the Faraday family. All Yvette had struggled with was that Madeline had not given birth to a child for the Faraday family.
Sebastian threw his coat on the couch and walked to the table.
The breakfast was not much different from before. There were a toasted floss sandwich and a serving of milk.
Sebastian took a bite of the sandwich and suddenly frowned. “Why does it taste different from before?”
He did not like pepper and cumin powder, but they were all in the sandwich this time.
Yvette tilted her head. “Is there any difference?”
“Mr. Faraday, the previous breakfasts were prepared by Ms. Jennings. She said she knew your preference,” Winnie explained.
Sebastian was slightly stunned when he heard that.
Sebastian placed the sandwich on the plate with his large and slender hand. “Are you saying… that Madeline was usually the one who prepared all my meals?”
That explained why Sebastian felt the food tasted completely different whenever Madeline was around.
Every dish suited his preference, and Madeline would always sit with him and finish the food with a smile.
Madeline knew his preferences very well.
Madeline said that she married Sebastian solely for peace of mind..
However, she did not need to put in so much effort if that was all she wanted.
Sebastian clenched his fists slightly.
“Son, we’re often blinded by our own feelings. Madeline might not have married into the Faraday family for money. We’re probably too narrow-minded,” said Yvette.
Sebastian murmured inwardly, “We’re too narrow-minded…”
Sebastian tightened his jaw and breathed heavily.
“Son. I will support you no matter what you do.” Yvette was being open-minded this time.
“It’s me who doesn’t want a baby. It has nothing to do with her,” Sebastian whispered as he left.
Yvette’s face stiffened for a moment. She realized that she completely misunderstood Madeline.
“Meanwhile, Madeline was at the largest racing track in Yarwood.
Madeline slowed down her motorbike and stopped at the entrance.
Madeline took off her helmet in a dashing manner. Her long hair fluttered in the breeze, making her look quite valiant.
A woman happened to pass by. She glanced at Madeline several times and said ironically, “Don’t you feel embarrassed to come to the racing track on a shabby motorbike? Don’t you feel ashamed?”
Madeline’s expression turned cold. She patted the back seat of the motorbike and could not believe that someone despised Harley-Davidson.
This was considered the origin of the motorbike. Her limited edition blue motorbike was not cheaper than those luxury cars.
However, the man who was with the woman chimed in, “Well, she must be
Madeline was rendered speechless.
She did not want to argue with those mutts.
Madeline was riding her favorite motorbike. When she was about to park in the parking. lot, the security guard stopped her before she could get in.
“Motorbikes are not allowed in.” The security guard glanced at Madeline contemptuously. “No one will steal your motorbike. Just leave it outside.”
“My motorbike has a license plate, and I also have a driver’s license. Why can’t I park it inside?” Madeline felt that her patience was challenged.
“Yeah, get out of our way.” It was the blonde-haired woman, Jennifer, again.
Madeline crossed her arms around her chest and stood in the middle of the parking space with a hint of coldness in her eyes. “Don’t you know this is on a first-come, first-served basis? I’m the one who occupies this parking space first. Are you trying to cut the line?”
“Why do you need a parking space for a motorbike? Get out of here.” Jennifer’s tone grew more contemptuous.
The security guard started to become impatient. “Young lady, don’t make trouble for us. Just park your motorbike somewhere outside.”
Madeline frowned. “I want to speak to your manager.”
