Chapter 51 You Lost
Rather than dwell on the setback of the second lap, Gianna remained focused on the third turn ahead. In the end, she overtook Levi by a hair at the most pivotal moment and ultimately reached the finish line first.
This silent contest ended with Gianna’s victory.
The spectators in the stands let out a sigh of relief and cheered for Gianna’s triumph.
That was the thing about horse racing. No one could tell the final result until the last moment. After a slow lap, Gianna stopped her horse in front of Levi and dismounted with a leap.
Gianna took off her helmet and let her beautiful hair fall on her shoulders. Her stunning face was filled with a radiant smile, captivating everyone’s attention. She said with a hint of panting from the exhilarating ride, “Mr. Rivera, you lost.”
Gianna had previously won the championship in a horse racing competition held by the royal family and received praise from the Queen.
Gianna has been passionate about horse riding since she was a child. Chaim had specially purchased precious horses for her and invited numerous equestrian champions to train her. When Gianna was fifteen, her pet was a valuable Akhal–Teke horse worth tens of millions. Therefore, in such a pragmatic project, Gianna would never lose to Levi, an unseasoned player trained by ordinary coaches.
In the past, Gianna had always tried to hide her dominant and superior side, carefully maintaining a gentle and amiable image just to catch Levi’s attention. Looking back now, Gianna found her previous self quite ridiculous.
The tremor in Levi’s chest had not subsided, and his complex gaze lingered on Gianna for a few seconds. He then looked away and asked, “When did you learn horse riding?”
The moment Levi saw Gianna appear earlier, he was stunned to find out that she could ride a horse. At this moment, he was amazed to discover that she possessed a professional level of skill.
Levi noticed that the Gianna exuded a wild and unrestrained aura, like a thorny rose. Her every move and gesture revealed a stunning charm that he had never seen in her during their marriage. Levi couldn’t help but admit that this version of Gianna made him feel a slight flutter in his heart. “Mr. Rivera, you’re off–topic. We were discussing the business of the Empyrean Group,” Gianna said coldly, with a distant indifference in her voice.
Levi suppressed his questions and said, “Tomorrow, bring the contract to the Rivera Group and meet me there.”
In a haughty manner, Gianna lifted her head and taunted, “Mr. Rivera, you’re quite intriguing. You seem to insist on having everyone comply with your wishes.
“However, I must remind you that the Empyrean Group is coming in with equal shares, and both parties will reap the benefits of this collaboration. The Empyrean Group is not subservient to your Rivera Group.”
Gianna felt that she needed to remind Levi that she was no longer the secretary who would obey
Gianna handed the reins to the patiently waiting horse trainer, leaving Levi with nothing but a confident silhouette. With a hint of nonchalance, she stated, “I’ll have my assistant take care of

the remaining details. If there’s anything that requires my attention, I’ll inform you.” Levi’s gaze silently followed Gianna’s figure until Liam appeared by his side.
“Mr. Rivera, tell me the truth. Did you go easy on her just now?” Liam’s eyes were full of amusement. This successful cooperation was the best outcome for his nano–robot project.
Now, it was a situation where all three parties won. Liam didn’t believe that Levi couldn’t see that. Levi shifted his gaze and said lightly, “No, she prevails through her own capabilities.”
Although Levi didn’t want to admit it, Gianna did defeat him.
“Mr. Rivera, it seems like you’re going to be feeling down for quite a while,” Liam teased.
“No, what she said is true. In business, there’s no need to have a rift with money,” Levi concealed his faint disappointment and said, “Promote this project as soon as possible.”
After that, Levi left the racetrack.
When Gianna changed out of her equestrian attire and walked out of the dressing room, she happened to see Victor and Levi walking ahead.
Levi remained indifferent while Victor, clinging to his shoulder, carried on with his ceaseless chatter.
“Man,/how did you lose to that woman just now?
“You’re the unbeatable legend in the Silver City horse racing circle. Did you deliberately let her win?”
Levi was a little impatient. He only wanted to leave that place as soon as possible.
“Then that woman has hidden it well. She suddenly brought up the divorce before, and now she back in Silver City, constantly appearing in front of you. I wonder if her sugar daddy, Chaim, thinks that your old flame has reignited?” Victor remarked.
In response to those words, Levi shot Victor a cold, icy glare, his eyes frigid and piercing. “If you’re so curious, go ask her yourself.”
