Read My Past is Just Prologue By Louisa Dillon Chapter 34 – He Should Marry Ms. Longfellow
Ernest seemed to have something urgent to do, so he said goodbye to Janet and then left.
“Ms. Longfellow!” As soon as Ernest left, a man stepped to Janet enthusiastically and said, “I’ve heard a lot about you. I didn’t expect that you would come to this auction. Which treasure are you determined to get today?”
As he spoke, the man deftly handed over his business card.
Janet took a look at it and found that the man was Primo, the general manager of the Wilson Group, who had recently cooperated with the Longfellow Group.
“Well, there is indeed something that I am interested in.”
In response to Primo’s friendly gesture, Janet politely replied.
Since she had taken back the Longfellow Group, there were a lot of interpersonal relationships to deal with, and she should take a chance to build her reputation in the industry circle. As such, Janet was not going to be like Nathaniel, who was always
Primo really wanted to continue his cooperation with Longfellow Group, so he was particularly attentive and asked, “Oh? What kind of treasure is it? Would you please let me know, so I can take a chance sending a present to you?”
Primo wanted to ride on the coattails of the Longfellow Group, and the other companies had the same thought.
Seeing Primo talking to Janet, many other companies’ senior executives also surrounded Janet.
“Ms. Longfellow is indeed a talent. Your presence is a great honor of the whole auction!”
“That’s right! If I had known that Ms. Longfellow would come, I would have brought my Hartford sapphire necklace here for you to check.”
“Your sapphire is not that rare. If I were not so busy, I would have been sending my rosewood furniture to Ms. Longfellow long ago!”
A group of people gathered around Janet and tried to curry favor with her.
Surrounded by the crowd, Janet could only suppress the impatience in her heart and respond to them gently.
As the chairman of a group, Janet did prefer a loyal and honest person.
However, she had to admit that these wily men often had greater use in the reality business.
Because they were ambitious!
“I heard that a set of T*ng tri-colored porcelain bowls will be displayed today. I’m quite interested, so I hope you can show
Since the auction house held this banquet for guests to communicate, there was no need for him to hide his purpose.
As such, Janet told them frankly.
“Wow, that set of T*ng tri-colored pottery is indeed precious! I had a crush on it before, but since Ms. Longfellow likes it, we won’t bid for it anymore. Don’t you think so?” Primo said.
“Yes, that’s right!”
All of them were cu**ing and sophisticated, hearing Primo’s words, most of the people expressed that they would no longer participate in the bidding on the set of bowls..
“I would like to thank you all.”
Janet smiled and nodded slightly, bowed a little to the crowd.
Many of the people looked flattered. They did not expect Janet to be such a gentle person.
Janet’s behavior had won everyone’s hearts and strengthened their determination to cooperate with the Longfellow Group.
However, although Janet had only mentioned it briefly, someone with ulterior motives still heard that.
At this moment, Winifred, who’d just arrived at the auction, was looking around, searching for Nathaniel.
“Mom! Why hasn’t my brother arrived yet?”
The woman dressed in rich, standing next to Winifred and holding her arm was Nathaniel’s younger sister, Quintina Webster.
“He should be here soon!”
Winifred looked at the door but did not see Nathaniel’s car. “Nathaniel told you to study hard at school. Why did you insist on coming here with me? Don’t cry if you are scolded by him later.”
Quintina was still in college.
“I don’t care! I heard from my classmates that a pair of emerald earrings carved by Master Antonio will be bid on in
auction! Mom, you have to let my brother buy it for me today!”
Although Nathaniel came to the auction to buy jewelry for Anastasia, Quintina wanted him to buy her something to show off in college.
“Okay, let your brother buy it for you.”
While they were talking, Winifred noticed a group of people gathered not far away. “Quintina, look! There were so many people there. Is your brother there?”
“No, that’s the president of the Longfellow Group.”
As a young girl, Quintina’s hearing was much sharper than Winifred’s. She had already heard others talking about the president of Longfellow Group.
Quintina pursed her lips, feeling a little jealous.
After all, compared with the young lady of the Webster family, the president of the Longfellow Group was much more powerful.
“The president of the Longfellow Group?”
After living in Raleigh for many years, Winifred had heard of the Longfellow Group. She said excitedly, “I’ve heard that the eldest daughter of the Longfellow family has returned. If we can make friends with such a big shot, it will be a great help to your brother!”
As Winifred spoke, she hurriedly grabbed Quintina’s arm and strode toward the crowd.
“Mom! She is from the Longfellow family!”
Quintina resisted and held Winifred tightly. She was unwilling to let her mother flatter a woman from the Longfellow family.
Although Anastasia was lame, she had always given Quantina financial support. Otherwise, as Nathaniel was so strict with her, she would not have been able to live so freely at college.
Therefore, Quintina, who had always acted recklessly, hated Janet the most as she had always pretended to be a good person to persuade her to study hard.
“Her surname has nothing to do with her money! The eldest daughter of the Longfellow family was different from Janet! If she marries your brother, we will be able to control the economy of Raleigh!”
Winifred’s eyes flashed a light of greed.
If those rich women knew that the chairman of the Longfellow Group was actually her daughter-in-law, how proud would she
