Chapter 247 Confident of Victory
Gianna smiled and proactively extended her hand, saying, “Hello, Mr. Garcia!”
“Ms. Lewis, you are truly talented. Under your leadership, Empyrean Group is gradually reaching new heights.”
“Thank you for your praise, Mr. Garcia.”
“Today, Ms. Lewis is also here for the Dawn City project? It seems that our two companies will be competing against each other today.”
“Mr. Garcia, you flatter me. Everyone is competing based on their own abilities.”
Charles smiled with a hidden meaning and continued, “Originally, our group was planning to give
up on this project… but we changed our minds yesterday at the last minute.”
Maverick, who had remained silent all along, spoke up, “With Mr. Garcia’s momentum, the chances of winning should be great.”
Charles smiled again.
“Where did you get that idea, Mr. Maverick Myers? We still don’t know who will come out on top.”
Maverick smiled without warmth. “Then, Mr. Garcia, let’s wait and see.”
The air instantly grew tense, and the pressure slowly subsided. Gianna felt Maverick’s hostility towards Charles.
“Well, see you later then…..” Charles glanced meaningfully at Gianna before leaving confidently.
“If I’m not mistaken, he is our biggest opponent today,” Gianna said nonchalantly.
Maverick didn’t expect Gianna to be so astute and see through the situation.
“Gianna, I find myself admiring you more and more…”
“Don’t flatter me. Let’s talk properly.”
“I’m telling the truth…”
Maverick looked disdainfully at Charles and continued, “Look at his appearance, so confident. If he gets what he wants, his ego will soar…”
“It’s not necessarily the case. The higher one stands, the harder they fall.”
The two exchanged a glance and headed towards the venue.
Guided by the staff, they took their seats arranged by the organizers.
At that moment, they completely failed to notice Rebecca sitting in a corner, staring at them with disdain.
Meanwhile, Charles approached Rebecca and patted her shoulder. “How is it going? Did you submit the bid?”
Rebecca raised an eyebrow, looking proud. “Don’t worry, it’s just a small matter. I’ve already submitted it.”
Charles sat down next to her.
“I’ve made thorough preparations for today’s battle. I paid a deposit of one hundred million to the suppliers last night, urging them to work overtime and prepare the materials we need. Once we win the bid today, we can start construction immediately.”
“So urgent?” Rebecca didn’t expect him to act so swiftly.
“It’s within our grasp. It’s just a matter of taking advantage of the situation. I just hope today’s outcome won’t disappoint me.”
On this point, Rebecca was quite confident.
She shifted her gaze and said, “Don’t worry! This project will definitely belong to Garcia Group. Let’s see how miserably Gianna and Maverick lose later!”
The two of them smiled at each other, their understanding unspoken.
“I’ll go to the restroom for a moment. You keep an eye on this side,” Rebecca said and then got up, walking towards the restroom.
However, when she came out of the restroom, she was blocked by Gianna at the door.
“Rebecca, you’re also here!” Gianna greeted Rebecca with a fake smile.
During the three years she was married to–Levi, Gianna had little interaction with Rebecca, at most seeing her as a relative during holidays.
Furthermore, Rebecca had never troubled her like the other members of the Rivera family, so initially, Gianna still held some goodwill towards her.
But now, even that trace of goodwill was gone.
