After all, the White family announced that Natalie was their biological daughter, which immediately turned Lila into a joke.
With a glass of wine clutched in her hand, Lila sat there rather awkwardly.
She used to be popular at all the parties, but now, she was sitting alone on a bench. As she sat there, she caught sight of a familiar man. Levi Glyn had been one of her craziest admirers.
The Glyn family started from scratch, engaging in the real estate business. Originally, Lila looked down upon them, but no one was willing to talk to her right then. And she didn’t want to be made into a joke here. With a glass of wine in her hand, Lila made her way up to Levi with a smile on her face and said, “Levi, what a nice surprise to see you here. I thought you didn’t like such parties.”
If this was in the past, Levi would have felt overjoyed that she wanted to talk to him. However, hearing her words now, Levi turned around and said in an indifferent voice, “My dad asked me to come here. He said Mrs. White would show up today.”
Lila smiled and said, “Yeah, my mom likes these sorts of events. She usually has a lot of time on her hands.”
Hearing her words, Levi only gave her a perfunctory answer. He simply took a sip of the red wine in his glass and turned his head to check out Natalie.
“Enjoy yourself. I’ll go talk with them now. Please excuse me.” After having said that, Levi made his way toward Natalie. Lila was startled, to say the least.
After that, she could make out Levi enthusiastically introducing himself to Natalie, “Miss White, I’m Levi Glyn, the eldest son of the
Glyn family. It just so happens that we live in the same neighborhood. I heard that it’s your first time in Barnes. If you’re feeling bored and want to hang out, you can call me at any time. I’m very familiar with the city.”
Levi wore the same warm smile he used to give Lila once.
Lila’s heart sank in her chest. She figured that he changed his attitude toward her because she was no longer known as the daughter of the White family. Everyone who had originally wanted to fawn over her had turned to Natalie.
Lila trembled so hard that she almost couldn’t hold her glass. This was the first time that she had experienced just how snobbish people could be. At the same time, she was feeling very resentful toward Natalie. She bit her lip so hard that it bled.
All this should’ve belonged to her, but now, it had all been taken away by that Natalie! While she was burying herself in hatred,
Natalie was talking happily with all the designers and celebrities.
In less than ten minutes, a lot of people were gathered around Natalie, who didn’t even seem to notice it herself.
They all looked at her with flattering smiles on their faces.
“Miss White, if you need cloth for any of your designs, my company can provide them for you at any time,” a clothing supplier said right away when he heard that Natalie was a fashion designer.
The CEO of a clothing design company said to her, “My company has the very best pattern makers in the world.
Miss White, you can borrow them at any time.” Natalie knew that this was all because she was now known as the biological daughter of the White family.
“All right, I’ll contact you if I need anything.” Natalie answered with a pleasant smile.
Suddenly, a scream sounded out from the crowd, “Look over there! He’s here!”
Everyone looked over to where that person was pointing at, including Natalie. The door of the banquet hall was opened from the inside by the staff members.
The light was a bit dim, but the man who had just walked in appeared very eye-catching. Everyone couldn’t resist but fix their eyes on him.
The man, who was wearing a black suit, looked both elegant and handsome at the same time. A faint mole could be seen on the bridge of his nose and he had charming eyes with the slightest hint of indifference in them.
“Oh, my God! Did he actually, seriously come back?”
‘I thought an international designer of his standing would usually live abroad. The last thing I expected was that he would come back to Barnes.” Natalie had only seen the man everyone was talking about on the cover of fashion magazines and in news articles before.
Like everyone around her, she was very familiar with this highly famous figure. Draco Wesley. He was one of the most influential fashion designers in the entire world. He was a genius when it came to the art of design. His name had been famous for many years now. Practically everyone had more or less heard of him.
He represented the glory of being a successful desi
When Natalie was in high school, she had read an interview he had given.
He pursued fashion design as if it was the light of his life and had never given up on it. At that time, he was still a young man in his twenties. His eyes glowed with sheer ambition and certainty whenever he talked about design. Natalie peered at him and found that the years had given him a gentler and calmer aura than he had when he was a young man. He looked much more mature and composed now.
In just six years, her idol had become the titan of the fashion industry, a force to be reckoned with.
At the age of thirty-two, he had his own fashion brand, W Marks. He had achieved so much in fashion design. In addition to being famous in the fashion industry, he was born into a rich family, and he was handsome and charming. He undoubtedly played the role of Prince Charming in innumerable women’s fantasies.
Natalie covered her mouth. She had looked up at him for many years, and finally, she could meet him in person. She had trouble putting her mixed feelings into words now.
All the women at the party swarmed around him, like bees flying around a beautiful flower.
“Mr. Wesley, can we still manage to obtain reservation for your new collections? I failed to make one, the items were too hot.”
“Mr. Wesley, can we take a picture with you?”
Looking at the crowd with a gentle smile, Draco said, “Of course.”
Natalie stood there, hesitated for just a moment and looked at Draco. It was a rare opportunity for her to meet him. She wanted to say hello to him and ask him some questions about design. Just when she was about to walk over, several women from the rich families who had afternoon tea with her before, Lila’s besties, pushed her unceremoniously away.
“Miss White, please get out of the way! Don’t block our way!”
‘There is plenty of room here,” Natalie looked at them and said, absolutely disgruntled.
“I wasn’t in your way.” A short-haired women pushed her aside and said impolitely, “We were just kindly reminding you not to squeeze in. Mr. Wesley won’t be attracted to ordinary women.”
She added in a tone dripping with haught iness, “There are a lot of excellent women who admire him. You, of all people, don’t stand a chance.”
