Chapter 53 Holding Grudges
“Some misunderstanding? That would be an incredibly coincidental misunderstanding!” Gianna thought.
Squinting at Maverick, Gianna recalled the incident where he had humiliated her. She believed that it couldn’t have been a simple misunderstanding. “Well, I do have a bad temper,” Gianna said. Although Gianna was usually amiable, she had a penchant for holding onto grudges.
Thinking about what Chaim had told her, Gianna felt a mischievous pleasure in teasing Maverick. She didn’t want to reveal her true identity to him and wanted to watch him act clumsily around her.
“You better stay away from me, got it?”
Maverick wasn’t paying attention to Gianna’s words. He opened the box, revealing a jade bracelet that emitted a soft glow. It was apparent that the value of the jade bracelet was much higher than the one Naomi bought in a fit of anger during their last encounter.
“I said I would give you a thank–you gift last time. Do you like it?”
With careful selection and consulting with multiple experts in the field of jade, Maverick finally selected this jade bracelet. It was a sincere gift.
“Take this back. I don’t need it.”
Gianna, I like you,” Maverick confessed again, sounding very confident.
He knew he was handsome and charming, and he believed that even if a girl held a grudge against him, she would still be captivated by his attractive and carefree demeanor. Unfortunately, the girl in front of him was Gianna.
“I do not like you.”
“You’re not my type.”
Maverick felt hurt by Gianna’s words. “So, she has her ideal type,” he thought disappointedly. After hesitating for a moment, he decided to make efforts in that direction. He spoke to Gianna in a consulting tone, “Please be more specific.”
With a cold expression, Gianna replied, “I don’t like foolish people like you. I’m worried it might affect the intelligence of my future children.”
Maverick felt as if he had heard a big joke because he was a person with an IQ of 167. He said, “I find it hard to believe your reason for rejecting me.”
Gianna raised an eyebrow and asked, “Really? But I heard that your department has been struggling with a difficult project. Isn’t it because of your foolishness that it not be done yet?” Maverick immediately realized Gianna was referring to the competition for the ownership of options with Arcadiana Bank from Mandester.
The project was indeed challenging, and despite Maverick trying various methods, they were constantly suppressed by Arcadiana Bank, resulting in no progress.
Even if Gianna hadn’t mentioned it, Maverick had already been provoked by the other party’s dominance and planned to show them his abilities.
Confidently, Maverick said, “Gianna, I will definitely succeed in this project and show you that I am the most brilliant man.

“You have to treat me to a meal after I succeed, okay?”
Seeing that her plan had succeeded, Gianna didn’t refuse Maverick anymore and said, “Prove your abilities first.”
Maverick laughed heartily as if it wasn’t a difficult task at all. He assured her, “No problem, I’ll come back with victory.”
The driver arrived in a Porsche, and Gianna got into the car and left.
That evening, Gianna called Chaim, proudly reporting her recent achievements.
Chaim chuckled indulgently on the other end of the phone. “I’ve got it. I’ve already asked Erwin to bring back the prepared gift. Tomorrow, he will accompany you in participating in the Valken Group’s project.”
“Chaim, are you saying that Erwin will assist me?” Gianna felt nervous.
Erwin Church had been working for Chaim for over ten years. He was Chaim’s right–hand man. Now that Chaim was sending his important person to accompany Gianna, it showed Chaim’s affirmation and support for her.
“Well, I know you can handle it all, but I feel less worried with him there.”
“Chaim, you’re nice to me.” A warm feeling flowed through Gianna’s heart. Many people in Silver City were waiting for her failure at this time, but Chaim’s support provided her with the strongest backing.
“What nonsense are you talking about? Go to bed early.” Chaim chuckled softly and hung up the phone.
Gianna slept soundly that night.
The next morning, she yawned as she entered the living room.
Erwin, dressed impeccably, was already waiting in the living room. As Gianna approached, he introduced himself, saying, “Ms. Lewis, I’m Erwin. I will be assisting you from now on.”
Erwin’s tone was clear and devoid of any flattery, which was the type of professionalism that Gianna appreciated.
“Well, I see.”
Gianna looked at the pile of gift boxes on the table, which were obviously gifts brought by Erwin as instructed by Chaim.
Gianna leaned on the sofa, picked up one of the boxes, and opened it. Inside, she found a Chopard wristwatch adorned with 201 diamonds, shimmering in the morning light. The watch was beautifully designed and conservatively estimated to be worth around 300 million dollars.
As she tried it on her wrist, Gianna smiled with satisfaction. “Chaim’s taste was, as always, impeccable,” Gianna thought.
Gianna and Erwin arrived at the company together.
In the office of the president, Erwin reported various data while Gianna verified each item.
At that moment, Enrick burst into the office, ignoring the secretary’s attempts to stop him.
