“You…” Hailey was so mad her face went dark.
Lucy quickly smoothed things over. “Mr. Dover, don’t stoop down to her level.”
Then, she turned around and glared at Hailey, “Hailey, Mr. Dover is just joking around with you, yet you think he’s being serious. After this, just drink some wine with Mr. Dover. If he’s happy, he’ll let you join Glorious.
“Mr. Dover, let’s sit. I’ll drink with you.”
Half of her body was in Greg’s arms as she dragged him over to the side of a table.
Hailey looked defeated. She felt helpless in front of Mr. Dover.
She thought she would be able to showcase her skills after coming back from studying abroad.
However, she was defeated the moment she arrived home. It was a rude awakening.
She was just a girl from an orphanage. She did not have a background nor social connections.
Why would others give her a chance?
Clarence patted her shoulder and comforted her. “Don’t feel down. You have real skills, you’ll definitely get into Glorious.”
Linda scoffed, “What do you know? Is there a lack of people with ‘real skills’ in this world? They can still be overlooked. It’s hard to get anywhere without background, social connections, status, and power in this society.”
As she said that, Linda glared at Clarence. “Hailey, don’t be brainwashed by him. This guy must have read too many philosophy magazines.
She pulled Hailey in Greg’s direction. “We’ll drink with Mr. Dover to apologize to him. After that, you might be able to get into Glorious tomorrow.”
Linda walked over with Hailey.
Lucy then gave Hailey a look. “Hailey, what are you still waiting for? Hurry up and pour some wine for Mr. Dover, and apologize to him.”
Hailey lifted her wine glass with a grudging look on her face. “I’m sorry, Mr. Dover. I was being rash just now. I’m here to apologize. You’re magnanimous, so please don’t blame me.”
Greg smiled. “I won’t. You’re a newbie, so it’s normal to have a temper. I’ll drink this.”
He lifted the wine glass to take a sip.
He then made a face, and the beautiful woman next to him got up from her seat.
Greg patted the seat next to him. “Sit next to me.”
Hailey’s body went stiff.
Lucy reminded, “What are you waiting for?”
Linda pushed Hailey into the seat and whispered in her ear. “Hailey, this is your chance. You’ve been studying abroad for so long and all you want is a good future, right? Now that your chance is right in front of you, you won’t lose anything if you drink with Mr. Dover. Everyone’s watching, so he won’t do anything rash.”
Hailey gritted her teeth and nodded silently.
She had to bow her head to reality.
Greg grinned and looked at Hailey. “You’re a smart girl. Tomorrow, I’ll speak to the interviewer and make sure you get into Glorious with no problems. However, your performance tonight dictates whether you’ll have the resources or the chance to climb up the ladder in Glorious.”
He lifted the wine bottle and filled Hailey’s glass.
Hailey gritted her teeth. “Thank you for the trouble, Mr. Dover.”
She lifted the wine glass and downed its contents.
Greg laughed loudly and watched the wine going into Hailey’s throat. “It’s fine. It’s just a simple word I’ll need to put in for you.”
Lucy smiled and said, “The misunderstanding has been solved. Everyone, settle down. The party is about to start.”
There were a few dozen people, and there were five to six tables.
After drinking, Greg started boasting, “I’m not boasting, but I know almost all of the big shots in Mediterranean City. There is nothing I don’t know. My cousin is in the entertainment industry and he has a few livestreaming companies under him. Even though he’s working under a boss, he’s had a lot of fun with those female livestreamers and actresses.”
Greg was high-spirited. “There’s a female livestreamer that’s very popular on that one livestreaming platform, right? Hehe, a rich guy gave her gifts worth over three million dollars, and he didn’t even get her number. However, that livestreamer goes to entertain my cousin after work every night.
“Also, Mr. McAlister from Waterson Group just got a young model to be his sugar baby, but his wife found out. She went to the sugar baby’s villa and made such a huge fuss. Now, they’re in the process of getting a divorce.
“Scenic Residential Area has been abandoned for so many years but since its nearby area was about to get developed, a boss from a real estate company bought the abandoned building for a very low price. He will develop it in the next few days.”
Greg lowered his voice. “If you have extra money, you should buy two units. After one or two years, its value will rise to at least five times its original price.”
One of the actresses was moved. “Mr. Dover, why is it so valuable?”
Greg laughed, “It’s a residential area in a school district. Do you catch my drift? They’re planning on building a primary school and a junior high over there. They will be hiring teachers from overseas.”
Everyone immediately understood, and they hurriedly asked for the details.
An actress asked curiously, “Mr. Dover, has there been anything major and fun happening in Mediterranean City nowadays?”
“Anything major and fun?”
Greg frowned. “There’s nothing fun, but there’s been something major.”
“What is it?”
Everyone looked curious.
Greg looked proud. “There’s been a miracle doctor in Mediterranean City.”
“A miracle doctor?”
Everyone’s eyes lit up.
Clarence was also stunned. Could it really just be a coincidence?
Then, Greg continued, “This miracle doctor is amazing. I heard he used to be a useless son-in-law, but after that, something happened and he’s now not only saved Jackson Hayes from the Hayes family and Old Master Wright from the Wright family…
“He’s also saved Chip Larson’s daughter. She had a heart condition and wasn’t going to live long, but she was saved by this miracle doctor.”
A woman exclaimed, “My gosh, the Hayes family, the Larsons, and the Wrights. He’s connected to all three of the top three families in Mediterranean City. Does that mean his life will be smooth sailing from here on out?”
Clarence touched his nose. Wasn’t that him?
Greg smacked his lips, a look of admiration on his face. “Right? Recently, he also saved that millionaire from Maple Country. Do you know how much he charged?”
Everyone was curious.
Greg pretended to be mysterious, lifting a finger.
“Ten million?” everyone guessed.
Greg shook his head. “More.”
Someone raised their voice. “One hundred million?”
Greg spat and rolled up his sleeves. “What is one hundred million? It was ten billion!”
The sounds of sharp inhales filled the private room.
Greg was happy with everyone’s surprised reactions. It was as if he was the one who had received the ten billion. “Hmph, that’s nothing. I heard this miracle doctor has also saved someone from a big family in Beth City. This person is something else. You’ll be set for life if he just puts in a good word for you.
“And I know this Master Howard.”
Clarence was amused. Why did he not know Greg, then?
The one and only Master Howard was here, yet Greg could not even recognize him.
Greg patted his chest. He was high-spirited as he told everyone, “If you have a disease you can’t cure, come to me. I’ll introduce Master Howard to you, and then you can be cured.”
As he said that, he got carried away and reached out his hand to hold the waist of the woman next to him.
Hailey reacted reflexively and slapped him across the face.
The lively private room fell silent..
