However, Alyssa’s expression darkened, showing no signs of being affected by Jameson’s actions.
“Wow, who is this handsome man? I feel like I’ve seen him
“He is Jameson Schmidt, Ms. Alyssa’s devoted guardian angel. He has successfully resolved numerous issues for her.”
“Oh, my God! What exquisite and distinctive features he has! He’s like a walking sculpture. I love it!”
“Plus, he is a kind man. If I were Alyssa, I would choose Mr. Jameson. So what if Mr. Beckett repented and came back? Once you miss the chance of fate, it’s useless even if you repent.”
“I agree. We’ve had enough of three years of their marriage. I want a handsome man, young and strong.”
The atmosphere was already tense, but now it had grown colder than
The vein on Cornelius’ forehead bulged. A fiery rage burned in his chest. He had always been on his high horse throughout his life. How could he suffer such humiliation from this bunch of young people trampling all over him?
“That bastard is at it again. What does this have to do with him?”
Daisy expressed her discontent softly, “Jasper has the guts to say it. After all, he started it, so he is not afraid of getting on the bad side of the Harper Group. What is Jameson doing jumping in? He’s going to drag the Schmidts down with him.
“Do you take him for a fool? The man is a genius and thought of a

he snatch Jasper’s glory, but he can flaunt his existence to Alyssa and curry Mr. Taylor’s favor.”
Josh stared at Jameson coldly. “Plus, he could also take the Harper Group down a notch. Dad always had a beef with the Harpers. He’s always annoyed but would never express his displeasure. Jameson had stood up on Dad’s behalf to express the anger he had suppressed for so long.”
Daisy and Josh’s faces turned grim.
Jameson had assessed David, curried favor with Winston, and repaired his relationship with his father. What was he going to do next? At this rate, no one was safe.
Eventually, under the public’s pressure, Cornelius had to humble himself and apologize to Alyssa.
Preston’s eyes were filled with hatred. However, they couldn’t ignore this. If they didn’t set aside their pride, their stock prices would hit rock bottom when the market opened the next day.
The horse race today had turned into an entertaining drama.
Zoe getting slapped in the face for slandering, Alyssa’s fall from her horse, Sophia’s arrest on drug charges, and a Harper family member’s ambush on the Taylors-all these incidents rivaled the gossip in the entertainment industry. They provided enough material to keep everyone occupied for years.
The four families left unhappily. The looks on Cornelius and Preston’s faces were ghastly when they left, to say the least.
Ezzo witnessed all the drama. However, he didn’t mention anything about a partnership.
Winston didn’t rush to inquire, either, having not placed much hope in the project to begin with. Getting the project would be a bonus; if not, he was content with the efforts put in.
Alyssa’s desire to make her family proud was marred by the unfortunate targeting. Otherwise, it would have ended perfectly.
When they left the racecourse, Winston patted Jameson’s shoulders approvingly. He said gratefully, “Thank you for today, Jameson.
“Don’t worry. Let me know if the Harper Group picks a bone with you next time. You’ve been such a great help to Lyse. I won’t put you in an embarrassing position.”
A humble and compliant smile appeared on Jameson’s face. Before he could say anything, Alyssa’s cold and indifferent voice came from behind, “Dad, you must be getting old. He never appeared throughout the incident. Now, you’re rewarding him because he showed up and said something at the very end. Don’t be so ridiculous.”
