Chapter 178 The Desire to Win
Joyce didn’t realize what was wrong, but from the moment Carmen chose Gianna instead of her, her bond as a student with Carmen as her teacher in her heart had already changed.
Therefore, Joyce pressed her lips and said without hesitation, “Professor Hastings, is this the candidate you have faith in? There is nothing impressive with her.”
Carmen’s expression darkened.
Upon seeing this, Gianna, on the side, also made a decision.
“Joyce, I’m willing to compete with you.”
“Good to hear you have the courage, but let’s make it clear first. I won’t show mercy to you. You’d better be prepared to lose.”
Joyce was still quite confident in her abilities.
Gianna replied calmly, “I’ll be looking forward to it. However, Joyce, it is important to remember the principles of respecting teachers and valuing morals. Don’t forget that.”
Joyce’s expression changed.
“When did it become your turn to lecture me?”
Gianna replied calmly, “I dare not. I’m just offering a friendly reminder.” Joyce looked at Carmen. Gianna’s words just now had clearly affected her “Professor Hastings, I…”
Carmen waved his hand and said generously, “This doesn’t matter. We’re all getting older, and it is time to pass the stage on to you young people. In that case, showcase your abilities and let the audience see.
“I believe the audience’s judgment will be clear, and a winner will emerge.”
Joyce’s eyes darkened.
That damn desire to win.
She was determined to win.
“Gianna, let’s settle this with our skills. After three days, show us your work. I want to see what your real abilities are.”
Gianna showed no sign of weakness. “Sure, let’s settle this with our work.”
eyes met, and neither of them backed down.
Then, Joyce turned and left.
The people present were all astute individuals who had witnessed various grand scenes. Upon seeing Gianna and Joyce weren’t willing to give in, they all anticipated a good show.
Some even continued to add fuel to the fire.
“Carmen, that is enough. After all, Joyce has been with you for so many years, so don’t make her embarrassed.”
“Joyce is a calm and promising young talent. I’m afraid it may not be appropriate to give her a hard time just for the sake of a newcomer who just arrived.”
“But I’m looking forward to this one–sided competition. Just…” One of them said, glancing at
Gianna with a mocking smile, clearly underestimating Gianna’s abilities.
“Carmen, I’m afraid your reputation might be at stake when the results come out!”
As this remark was made, everyone exchanged knowing smiles except for Carmen, who remained composed.
“Don’t rush it. The results haven’t come out yet! Don’t celebrate too early. After all, he who laughs last laughs best.”
Upon hearing this, the others didn’t argue with him, acknowledging his point.
“Yes, let’s wait for the results in three days.”
After everyone else had left, only Gianna, Kaylee, and Carmen were left.
Kaylee, being considerate, understood that Gianna and Carmen had something to discuss, so she took the initiative and said, “I’ll wait for you in the car.”
Once Kaylee was gone, it was just Gianna and Carmen.
Gianna couldn’t quite understand why Carmen had chosen her.
Sensing her confusion, Carmen spoke first, “Don’t overthink it. Just bring out your abilities and put your best effort into creating the design.”
His words were full of comfort and encouragement.
Gianna held back any words that came to her mouth. She didn’t want to let Carmen down. “Don’t worry. I’ll try my best.”
