You Taught Me Well
“Mr. Chambers?” The crew members who were interrogating Athena were shocked when they saw the young man walking over.
“What happened?” Gabe frowned as he stood next to Athena.
“One of our guests informed us that this lady has no invitation, so we came to verify.”
“She doesn’t have one because I invited her!” Gabe said sternly, “If you have any questions, just ask me!”
“I’m sorry, Mr. Chambers!” The crew member immediately apologized to Athena. “Miss, we didn’t know you were Mr. Chambers’ guest. Please forgive us.”
“It’s okay, don’t worry about it.” Athena shook her head.
“You two may leave now,” Gabe waved his hand, still visibly annoyed. It was unusual for Gabe to be harsh like this as he was usually very nice.
The two crew members left with livid faces, thinking the woman from earlier had fooled them.
Ruby immediately hid in the crowd. She was afraid that those two would recognize her and embarrass her in public.
She heard people whispering around her.
“That woman actually knows Mr. Chambers?!”
“He got angry for her, you saw that? She might be his girlfriend!”
Ruby’s face turned pale.
Athena had been with Byron for five freaking years. And the moment Byron ditched her, she hooked up with Gabe?!
That bitch didn’t deserve such a loaded young dude!
Athena was also stunned. She didn’t expect the man she met earlier to be the young master of the Chambers family, the star of this party. And he just came to her rescue!
“Are you all right?” Gabe looked at Athena in concern.
“I’m fine, Mr. Chambers. Thank you for helping me.” Athena was a little embarrassed.
After all, she sneaked onto the cruise. But she remembered something more important.
Athena hurriedly looked around for Brad.
“What’s wrong? Did you lose something?” Confused, Gabe followed Athena’s gaze and looked around.
Before Athena could say anything, a sweet voice called out her name.
Knowing Ruby was behind the scene just now, Athena looked toward the source of the voice with anger in her eyes. But what she saw made her tremble.
Ruby had her arm linked with Byron’s, giving the appearance of a happy couple.
“Mr. Crawford.” Athena acknowledged Byron with a cold nod, while Gideon greeted her cheerfully, but she ignored him. Gideon felt embarrassed. It turned out that Athena had her
temper. She still didn’t forgive him for his nonsense in Byron’s office the other day.
Byron approached Athena, his gaze shifting to Gabe before he sneered at her, “You’re good.”
Athena’s heart skipped a beat, but she managed a half-smile. “Thanks. You taught me well.”
Byron’s expression turned gloomy. Athena believed he didn’t lash out at her only because they were in public.
“Hello, Mr. Crawford!” Gabe greeted politely.
Byron, from a noble family, had always been courteous.
However, he ignored Gabe’s greeting and walked to the banquet hall with Ruby.
Gideon observed the scene with amusement. Athena’s reply to Byron impressed him, and he almost laughed.
Athena had really become amazing after she broke up with Byron!
After Byron with Ruby, Gideon followed with a smirk, which annoyed Athena even more.
Athena thought Byron was an absolute idiot. She came here, trying to recover the company’s losses, yet he brought his new sweetheart to cause trouble!
“Athena.” Gabe’s warm voice interrupted Athena’s thoughts as he called her.
She looked up, and Gabe’s light blue eyes beamed with gentle smiles.
like your name!” Gabe said seriously, making Athena laugh.
“Yeah? Thank you.”
“My name is Gabe! Remember it!”
Athena chuckled and gradually calmed down. She knew she still had a chance to meet Brad before the party was over.
“But you did sneak in here, right? Why?” Gabe asked.
“Yeah… Sorry about that. I came here hoping to meet someone, but I missed my chance earlier,” Athena admitted.
“Who? Let me introduce you!” Gabe proposed.
However, Athena was reluctant, knowing everything came with its price. She shook her head and tried to decline, saying,
“Just call me Gabe!”
Athena smiled helplessly. Just then, Brad’s bodyguard approached.
“Miss, my boss wants to see you.”
Athena was surprised but immediately nodded, “Okay, I’ll be there.”
Gabe became vigilant, “Your boss? Who is your boss?”
Athena whispered, “He works for the person I’m trying to meet. Gabe, thank you. I have to go. I’ll treat you to dinner some day!”
Athena followed the bodyguard and came to a luxury suite on the cruise.
Before Athena could say a word of greeting, Brad turned to glance at her, and asked straight to the point, “Which company are you from?”
“Imbe Group, Mr. Maxwell,” Athena replied.
After a moment’s pause, Brad frowned, “You play the harp very well. I am pleased to hear it. But Imbe Group is not professional enough. I won’t choose to cooperate with an unprofessional team, so…”
“Mr. Maxwell, I suppose you have seen quite a few proposals from top companies in the industry recently,” Athena spoke in
a gentle tone, devoid of any aggressiveness.
Listening to her, one would instinctively lower their guard.
Brad nodded, “That includes your company too. Imbe has really disappointed me.”
ely apologize,” Athena explained, “However, Mr. Maxwell, I’m sure you haven’t had the chance to review our company’s complete proposal.”
