Chapter 49 Are You Scared, Mr. Rivera?
“Ms. Lewis, you have amazing horse–riding skills.”
Liam admired Gianna, and although his gaze was straightforward, it didn’t feel offensive. Gianna glanced at Levi at the side before turning back to Liam and said, “Mr. Hill, can we go to another place to chat privately?”
Valken Group was a company focused on the core development of science and technology.
In the past five years since its establishment, it had developed countless novel intelligent bionic robots, which had won praise from various fields.
The nanorobot technology at this time was an unprecedented technological breakthrough, and it had the possibility to solve difficult problems in medical history.
It was precisely because Gianna valued this point that she wanted to discuss this cooperation after taking office.
Levi’s gaze was cold, and displeasure could be heard in his voice. “Valken Group has signed a contract with Rivera Group. Is there anything that can’t be discussed openly?”
His eyes never left Gianna. From the moment she rode her horse into the arena, he had firmly grasped that figure, unable to let go.
Gianna had never ridden a horse in front of him, and she had never even mentioned it.
This woman… There were too many things about her that he didn’t know.
The cooperation between Valken Group and Rivera Group was still in the confidential stage, yet this woman had gotten wind of it in such a short time and wanted to intervene. It seemed that they would have many entanglements in the business circle of Silver City in the future.
Gianna was slightly taken aback, as she didn’t expect them to move so quickly. Even the signing process had been completed in just a few days.
Although she was slightly irritated for being late, her bright face was very calm. “Is it possible to add Empyrean Group to this project?”
Liam smiled upon hearing it, but his clear gaze was unreadable. “Now that Valken Group has obtained Rivera Group’s funds, it may not be appropriate to rashly add another inventor.”
As if expecting that Liam would refuse, Gianna remained indifferent and continued to persuade, “If you add another investor, you will expand the scope. Wouldn’t it be better to share the risks? “Empyrean Group’s medical research and development technology can better help nanorobots to be put into practical operation. As long as you really love your hard work, you will never give up such a great opportunity to advance.”
Gianna’s expression was full of confidence, and she looked directly at Liam’s bottomless eyes. “Mr. Hill, please consider it again.”
Gianna’s persuasion seemed to have moved Liam, but he still didn’t budge. Instead, he handed over the decision–making power to Levi. “Ms. Lewis is truly a great negotiator, and I admire it. But now, not only do you have to ask my opinion, but you also have to ask Mr. Rivera’s opinion.” Gianna secretly sneered. Liam was truly cunning. As they were talking about business, naturally he would not reject another person to enter the project and deny the opportunity to expand the scale.
However, Gianna and Levi had a huge fight before their divorce, and now, they met again in the business market. If Levi didn’t deal with it at all and was unwilling to cooperate, Liam could s say

nothing about it.
Therefore, it would be better to inquire about the problems directly with Gianna and see how far they could talk.
Levi closed his eyes and coldly uttered his decision, “I disagree!”
“Why?” Gianna put the whip on the rattan chair and sat down leisurely.
“It’s not necessary.”
Levi walked away after throwing such a simple reason, but Gianna’s casual provocation soon came from behind him. “Mr. Rivera, are you scared?”
Levi’s steps halted, but he did not turn his head. “Utterly ridiculous. What am I afraid of?”
Gianna walked to Levi’s side and chuckled, “You’re scared that Rivera Group’s profits will be split. Or, you’re worried that I will get your share of the money.
“It’s clearly about maximizing profits, reducing risks, and a win–win solution to all parties, but it was set aside because of Mr. Rivera’s cowardice…” Gianna turned around and asked Liam, “Am I right, Mr. Hill?”
Liam smiled but remained silent. He didn’t want to participate in the competition between a man and his ex–wife.
“You can say whatever you want, but Rivera Group will never cooperate with Empyrean Group.” Levi’s voice was cold, and his expression was so gloomy as if dark clouds were obscuring his face. “Could it be that you still have feelings for me, Mr. Rivera?” Gianna finally threw a bombshell.
