My Gorgeous Wife is an Ex-Convict Novel Chapter 24
She had always known that he was good-looking, but now that she could really take in all of his features, he was ridiculously handsome.
Far too good-looking for someone like her.
“My brother is really attractive.”
Her word “my” seemed to please him.
She could not help but sigh. “If you were to tie your hair back like this when you’re handing out flyers, you’ll have scores of girls chasing to snatch them from you.”
“How about we go to the hair salon to tidy up your hair later? It’s a pity that your beautiful eyes are always covered by it,” she muttered.
“What’s there to feel sorry for? My current state will only be available for you,” Jason said. “We are family, after all.”
Grace burst out laughing. “You can wear this sweater tomorrow. Get changed and I’ll wash it for you.”
“Alright,” he asserted.
She took out her phone and took a picture of him in the sweater, then moved her finger and updated her Facebook.
Speaking of which, there were almost no friends in her socials. There were actually only two people. One was Lina, and the other was Jay.
“Let Lina look, I’m sure she’ll be so jealous that I have such a handsome younger brother,” Grace said.
Sure enough, after a while, Lina “liked” the post and followed up with a sentence: “Nice sweater. Send me the link, I’ll buy one for my dad.” Then: “By the way, your new younger brother is just like a clothes rack. He should try to be a model. There aren’t any real requirements besides being hot. And he checks that box.”
Grace thought about it and agreed. She then asked Jay, “What do you think about being a clothes model?”
“Not much,” he said.
“Models make a good living.”
He stared at her. “Sister, do you think I make too little money?”
“Ah, no!” she said quickly. “I just want you to have a better life.” Perhaps this was all there was to her life, but she wanted something better for him.
“I will have a better life. When the time comes, I can give you whatever kind of life you want,” he told her seriously.
This was just a game for him, but at this moment, he really wanted to give her a better life in the future.
For him, it would take nothing more than a snap of his fingers. If he said it, it’d be done.
Grace laughed. She did not think he could give her the life she wanted. However, she did not want to hurt his feelings, so she said, “Okay, okay, then I’ll wait until you earn a lot of money- and then you can take care of me. That way, I’ll be able to live comfortably as someone who knows nothing except for relying on you.”
He snorted at her sarcasm. “Great. Glad we’re agreed.”
The next day, when Terrence went to the break room, he heard some colleagues talking. “Have you seen Mr. Reed’s sweater today?”
“No, what’s wrong?”
“It seems to be one of Amazon’s items.”
“Are you sure? How is it possible for Boss Reed to be wearing such mainstream clothes?”
“I don’t think it’s possible either. Could it be some branded clothes that were imitated? “Nonetheless, it looks different when it’s worn by Mr. Reed. Seems like I should buy it for my husband too.”
“Hey, why don’t you send me the link for the sweater later?”
Terrence’s body trembled and he silently exited the coffee room.
He did not have the nerve to tell the two colleagues that Mr. Reed’s sweater today was really a cheap sale item. He had even seen someone in the company wearing the same one as Mr. Reed.
Mr. Reed had not said anything, just glanced at the colleague calmly.
As for that colleague, he looked shocked. It seemed that he could not believe that his big boss was wearing things like him.
Terrence returned to the president’s office and looked at his superior, who had taken off his suit jacket and was reading some documents in front of his desk.
With his hair tied back as he normally wore it, the sweater actually made him look more scholarly and less ruthless.
This piece of clothing was most likely bought by Grace. Normally, before Mr. ReedMr. Reed got to the company, he would change out from the clothes he had been wearing at the apartment. those clothes were dry-cleaned and prepared for him so he could change back into them when he left for the day. Today, however, he had not taken off his sweater.
What does this mean?
Also, how much longer would Mr. Reed continue going back and forth to this woman’s home?
However, naturally, Terrence did not dare to ask these questions.
“Mr. Reed, this is the purchase proposal you wanted.” Terrence set the file he was holding on the desk. When he was about to leave, he suddenly stopped.
“Do you know that Sean has commissioned a publicity campaign with engagement photos throughout the city?
Terrence was flustered. He had never thought his superior would suddenly ask such a question.
“Yes, sir. I know. I’ve seen them.”
“How many of those ads are running in the city?” Jason asked.
“There should be ninety-nine,” Terrence said. He remembered that there had been media interviews in which Mr. Stevens had said that there would be a total of ninety-nine projection ads, representing the love of ninety-nine lifetimes.
“It’s been quite the campaign, sir. And it has certainly elevated Ms. Atkinson. She’s a popular actress, but it’s been reported that she’ll have several leading roles in the next year.”
Remove all of them,” Jason said.
“All of the ads?” Terrence was surprised.
“All of them,” Jason repeated with certainty.
“Okay, sir. I will do it.” Mr. ReedMr. Reed suddenly wanted to withdraw the ads of the Stevens family. Had Sean or maybe Lily offended Jason in some way? Terrence thought hard about what might prompt this. When Jason had been engaged to Jennifer, it had marked a strong political marriage, with the promise of incredible financial gains for both. Of course, the Stevens had far more to gain. Reed Corporation didn’t need them or their assets. But Mr. Reed had made no comments about the Stevens/ Atkinson wedding, he had even accepted the engagement invitation from Sean’s family.
Terrence was puzzled. Suddenly, he shivered and thought of a striking possibility.
Could it be that Mr. Reed wants to withdraw the engagement ads because… of Grace?” Terrence was shocked by his own idea.
Would Mr. Reed do that for a woman? Not even for the sake of Jennifer, who was going to be Mr. Reed’s wife, had Jason ever offended anyone in the business world.
What did this woman, Grace, mean to his boss? Gracehad driven the car that ended Jennifer’s life.
