Marguerite shivered, staring in disbelief at the woman with a sinister smile in front of her.
Her first instinct was to expose her, but Yuna suddenly held her shoulder and looked at her with a smile.
“Marguerite, let me remind you that today’s judges were invited by Frederick, If you expose me in front of Frederick, are you trying to challenge his status? In other words, do you think Frederick would believe you?”
Marguerite was so angry that she clenched her fists and gritted her teeth, barely managing to control herself.
Yuna was right; Frederick completely trusted her. No matter what Marguerite said, it wouldn’t make a difference.
To frame Marguerite, Yuna really would do anything!
Marguerite turned around mechanically and sat heavily on the stool.
She had thought this would be her battlefield for a counterattack, but she hadn’t expected Yuna to have dug a big pit for her already.
So, was she destined to lose today?
Soon, the perfume blending competition began on
The two blending tables were very close, but there was an opaque screen in the middle, so neither of them could see the other’s operation.
Even though the outcome was obvious, Marguerite was neither discouraged nor did she back down.
Her experiences growing up had shaped her character to face difficulties. Even if she knew she was bound to fail, she would seize every possible opportunity,
She carefully took out the original floral materials and ground them, then dried them with a mini dryer, set up the distillation vessel, and used the extraction distillation method to refine the liquid.
Every step was perfect, without any mistakes.
On the other side, Yuna was not panicked.
She had watched a documentary on perfume making last night and remembered all the steps.
She even thought that making perfume was quite simple, just follow the steps and mix the ingredients in the formula.
What’s so hard about that?
If she had known this earlier, she would have made a perfume for Frederick herself. The scent would definitely be much better than what Marguerite made.
At this moment, the judges came down to observe their work.
They didn’t linger in front of Marguerite, all the judges gathered behind Yuna, occasionally chatting and nodding in approval.
They tried to create the impression that Yuna was more professional and capable than Marguerite.
Yuna noticed everyone’s expressions. Knowing that she held the winning card, she quickly raised her face with pride and then looked at Marguerite with contempt.
“If you give up now, it won’t be too embarrassing. Are you going to wait until the judges publicly announce that you are the one who plagiarized my idea?”
Marguerite didn’t look up, she was completely focused on her work and didn’t hear Yuna’s words.
Yuna sneered, “Well, it’s not my dignity that’s being lost, you just keep pretending.”
As soon as her words fell, one of the judges noticed that the perfume liquid distilled by Marguerite and Yuna had begun to form.
He looked at Marguerite, then at Yuna, and frowned.
Then he immediately turned his head and whispered his findings to his colleague.
Then, all the judges‘ expressions became serious.
Then, Yuna heard a judge sighing softly in her ear.
She was stunned, turned her head, and saw that they had returned to their seats, discussing something in low voices.
Everyone’s face showed signs of struggle and indecision.
They were just putting on a show, but did they really need to play it so real?
But it was good this way, at least it wouldn’t make Freddie suspicious.
Ten minutes later, Marguerite was the first to finish blending her perfume. She used the guide tube to guide the perfume into a small bottle and politely handed it to the judge with both hands.
The judge took it comberly, not even looking at Marguerite.
Marguerite knew why, so she didn’t hold any hope and quietly returned to her seat.
Yuna then also handed in her work.
Robert, seeing that the time was almost up, walked from the back of the media to the judges‘ table and eagerly asked, “Well, do we have a result yet?”
The judges looked at each other and smiled, all with complicated expressions.
One of them was even sighing constantly.
“No results yet?” Robert asked again.
Seeing that no one else wanted to announce the result, an elderly judge took it upon himself, stood up, and nodded. “We have a result,”
As soon as the words came out, several media outlets immediately aimed their cameras at the old man, everyone’s expressions eager and serious.
The old man sighed, glanced at Yuna, seeing that she was ready, and then announced:
“After comparing on the spot, we found that Marguerite’s perfume is exactly the same as the one on the market. That is to say, Marguerite is the original creator, and Yuna is the plagiarizer.”
