Alyssa would still be safe that night.
Zoe decided that she would find an opportunity on some other day to
ruin Alyssa’s dignity so that no other man would ever want her.
In the banquet hall, melodious music played.
The women dazzled in their flamboyant outfits while the upper-class guests gathered..
Jasper hadn’t gone over together with the Beckett family. Instead, he appeared at the same time as Landon as if avoiding any suspicion.
The two “polar opposites” arrived in their brilliance, capturing people’s attention wherever they went.
Jasper didn’t have a partner by his side, but the women didn’t dare to covet him. After all, they had heard that he was already taken, so they didn’t want to ridicule themselves.
Who would have the guts to steal Alyssa’s man? The issue was that they wouldn’t be able to win her!
But those women had a different look in their eyes when they looked at Landon. Their gazes could essentially be described as thirsty or predatory.
Landon and Lauren’s relationship had only ever been disclosed once and it was on the day of the horse racing event. Most outsiders were still in the dark.
With that, Landon was still the dream man of the women in Solanal
Even so, Landon didn’t have eyes for any other woman. All thes dolled-up women were still not as compelling to him as Jasp
“You didn’t bring Lauren with you. Have you gone back to your old
Jasper glanced at Landon with his cold, black eyes. “Are you thinking
of spreading your wings and flirting with other women behind
Landon glared at him. Angrily, he answered, “Heck, will you only change your opinion of me if I got castrated? Even bitches can be tamed. Can’t I be the same?”
Jasper turned his eyes away and said, “We’ll just have to wait and see.
“Damn it. I went to a meeting last night. Those senseless women pounced on me, requesting to be my partner. I lost it on the spot! If it weren’t for them being women, I would’ve punched them!”
Landon let out a heavy, exasperated sigh. He was reminded of his lovely wife who was waiting for him at home.
“Lauren doesn’t like to come to these sorts of events. She has severe social anxiety, so it will make her very uncomfortable.
“In fact, I wasn’t planning to come either. But, I had no choice now that I had replaced Preston in helping Grandpa with affairs at the Harper Group. That’s why I had to be here today.”
Jasper lifted the corner of his thin lips slightly. “I heard good news.”
“You have been promoted. Early congratulations to you, Mr. Harper.”
Landon froze. An unexplainable joy filled his heart.
Mr. Landon Harper, the president of Harper Group. What a belly titled position.
In the past, people from the Harper Group and any outsiders only addressed him-as “Mr. Landon”. It had always been difficult for him to become the center of authority.
He thought that it would be a long fight. Little did he expect this day
to be here so soon.
“Hey, I haven’t been promoted officially. I am just serving as an interim.” Despite his words conveying a sense of embarrassment, Landon had a luminous glint in his eyes.
“You are the only grandson that Mr. Cornelius has. It is only fair that he supports you. It is also inevitable that he does so.”
Jasper extended his arm to give him a pat on his shoulder. He advised him sincerely, “Landon, I am truly happy for you. Now that steps have been taken to get back into the legal business, you should rid yourself of any ventures in the gray area.
“At the very least, on the surface, it should appear as if you have no involvement in it. This will impact your image in the Harper Group and in the public eye in the future.
“Also, I don’t wish for Lauren to be worried for you day in and day out. You have to carry out your work properly. Do you understand me?”
