She stood up and breathed a huge sigh of relief. “Thank you very much for your time, Mr. Norton. I will have someone send you a copy of the next issue when it is published.”
“Sure.” Fabian took another glance at the time and continued, “Would you like to join me for lunch?”
“No, I need to get back to work now,” Hannah replied without any hesitation and ran off quickly.
The smile on Fabian’s face faded as he watched her disappear into the distance before returning to his desk.
His assistant knocked on his door and sounded a little anxious as she said, “Everyone’s waiting for you in the meeting room, Mr. Norton…”
“Got it.” His tone was as cold as ice.
I missed out on an important meeting just so I could let her have this exclusive interview…
Hannah saw Fabian walking towards the meeting room as she entered the elevator.
He had a serious look on his face and seemed like a completely different person from earlier.
“Damn, that guy’s practically a wolf in sheep’s clothing!” she muttered under her breath as she stood inside the empty elevator.
I never knew Fabian had such a shameless side to him… The way he looked so casual when he said it depends on Yvette’s decision…
Hannah kept her head low and stared at her feet as she got lost in thought.
“Excuse me! Excuse me!” She snapped out of it when she felt someone bump into her on their way out and realized she had arrived at the bottom floor.
Hannah quickly stepped out of the elevator before it went back up again, only to see Yvette the moment she got to the main lobby.
She was wearing a black miniskirt and a matching pair of black stiletto heels which made a loud clacking noise with every step she took.
Yvette looked as proud as a peacock as she strutted through the lobby with a pair of sunglasses on her face and her head held high.
Hannah glanced at her watch, took a deep breath, and walked straight ahead.
Yvette’s assistant tapped her on the shoulder and asked, “Hey, isn’t that the woman from before?”
“You’re right, she is!” Yvette adjusted her sunglasses and shot Hannah a provocative smile which was met with a fearless stare in response.
Yvette grabbed her by the arm as the two of them passed by each other. “Hmph… I can’t believe you’d be bold enough to come all the way here for a scoop!” she said while staring at the camera in Hannah’s hand.
Hannah brushed her arm off with an annoyed frown. “You seem to have gotten the wrong idea here, Ms. Tanner.”
Yvette crossed her arms. “You’re the one who crashed into my car, aren’t you? I should’ve known you were one of the paparazzi!”
Hannah could feel the look of disdain from behind those sunglasses of hers.
“Still trying to lie your way out of this, huh? In case you haven’t realized, this company belongs to the Norton family, and Yvette’s going to be the lady of the house!” the assistant said gleefully.
Lady of the house, huh? Good luck with that.
Hannah felt a sudden burst of anger within her, and she retaliated by saying, “You overestimate yourself if you think you’re worthy of me tailing you for a scoop!”
“Why, you…” Feeling infuriated, Yvette reached out to snatch her camera from her. “Prove it, then! Show me what’s on your camera!”
Hannah quickly took a step back and held her camera behind her, causing Yvette to nearly trip over had she not grabbed onto her assistant in time.
The commotion drew the attention of those around them, and people started pointing their cameras at Yvette who tried to play it off by tossing her hair.
