Reversal - Chapter 177
“And your brother?” looking at Christian with concern, Elisa asks.
“We can’t go visit him, even though we have the best room, we can’t stay all day, only 9 hours a day and no more”
“Are you okay?”
Stroking Christian’s face with concern, Elisa asks.
“A little, but now that I’m with you I feel much better.”
“I’ll give you all the affection you need” Rising suddenly, Elisa sits on Christian’s legs, resting her breasts on his face, then hugging him lovingly.
Resting his head on Elisa’s breasts, Christian smiled and hugged the woman, spending the rest of the way sharing each other’s warmth as calm filled the air.
After a leisurely meal while chatting with Elisa about her favorite TV show, Christian was already entering the apartment.
Hugging Christian’s arm, Elisa smiled happily as she looked around curiously.
Entering the private elevator, Christian waited patiently, until the doors opened and they reached the penultimate floor.
Walking curiously, Christian reached the main room, seeing Hannah being watched intently by Leslie, Hailie and Eva, while the woman sat up straight with obvious nervousness and beads of sweat on her forehead.
“…” Setting Elisa’s suitcase aside, Christian smiles and whispers in her ear “She’s Alan’s new girlfriend.”
“Oh…” Nodding, Elisa looked at the woman pityingly, already knowing the whole story after Christian spoke to her at dinner.
“Mother, I’m back” Alerting her presence, all eyes turned to Christian and Elisa, as Hannah collapsed on the couch in relief.
“Hello everyone~” Waving her hand, Elisa smiled sweetly.
“Hi…” Looking at how close together they are, Eva purses her lips and replies dryly.
“Hi Elisa, it’s been a while since I’ve seen you” Smiling slightly Hailie replied.
“…” Leslie just nodded while staring at Christian.
Sitting down next to Hannah, Christian gives Elisa space and looks at his mother “You’ll tell me why you’re bullying the poor woman?”
“We weren’t bullying her, it was just girl talk, wasn’t it?” staring at Hannah with a smiling face, Eva asked.
“Y-yes!” nodded Hannah quickly.
“Have you eaten yet?”
“Were they staring at each other for hours?”
“Are you sure you don’t like each other?” looking at the 3 women, Christian continues “Don’t even think about it, Hannah is Alan’s girlfriend, you can’t take her away from him!”
“W-what nonsense are you talking!?” Looking at Christian with a red face, Eva exclaims, while Leslie just rolls her eyes.
“…” Crossing her arms, Hailie just looks at Christian in disgust.
Smiling, Christian looks at Hailie and speaks “How cute my little sister, she is afraid that her brother will be robbed
“Who would jealous of him, he disgusts me, I’m only here because mom asked me to be!”
Laughing lightly, Christian hugs Elisa and smiled “I’m marrying Elisa, will you bully her too?”
“Please don’t look at me, I’m shy~” Hiding her face in Christian’s chest, Elisa replies with amusement.
With her words, the 3 women looked at Christian with dead eyes, but knowing that Elisa has a girlfriend, they weren’t the least bit worried.
“Well, make sure to eat, I’ll go to sleep” Taking Elisa’s hand, Christian waves his other hand lazily and gets up.
“W-wait!” Looking at Christian leaving with Elisa, Eva exclaims quickly.
“Yes?” Turning to Eva, Christian asks with a smile.
“W-where are you going?”
“Because she’s my guest, I won’t let her sleep alone.”
“No, nothing…” Thinking the situation through, Eva let it go.
Tuesday, January 23, 2018.
Looking at the building in front of him, Christian sighed with satisfaction.
“It really is beautiful.”
“We’ve already become an icon of the city” Smiling slightly, Eva stood next to Christian while Leslie stood on the other side.
The Grey building was really similar to the Stark building, having its unique structure standing out among so many square and boring buildings around it, but without a doubt what gave it more beauty was the park next to it, having a big golden pool in its center surrounded by trees, flowers and bushes with animal shapes.
But the most characteristic feature is the entrance to the park, having a large Torii gate with black oriental dragons on each side and connecting at the top.
“This gate is a signature of the architect on the structure, she is Japanese and wanted to leave a piece of her culture.”
“It looked perfect” Nodding with satisfaction, Christian continued “Come on, I want to see the building”.
Nodding, Eva led the way to the entrance, where instantly Christian saw a beautiful reception area with several sofas, plants, even chandeliers that seem to be made of gold.
Looking at the receptionist’s workplace, Christian sighed.
Even the reception table is made of carved ivory with several gold fragments on different sides.
Looking at the large amount of people walking on their sides, Christian just pursed his lips and followed his mother.
“Good morning Miss CEO” Bowing quickly, the people at the reception greeted Eva, causing the woman to only nod with a vague smile.
“Let’s go” Passing by the front desk, Eva led Christian into the hallways, while Christian looked at the luxury of the building with curiosity.
Arriving in front of a gold elevator, Christian looked at the other 5 next to it and asked “Why is this one gold and the others silver?”
“This elevator is exclusive for the highest positions in the company, it is gold plated and the normal ones are silver plated” Taking out a black card from her clothes, Eva moved it towards a metal plate on the wall and the elevator opened automatically.
Entering the elevator with an ostentatious red carpet on the floor and more gold inside, Christian looked at the buttons with numbers and asked “What is the button for our private floor?”
“There is no button, I have to use this card to get upstairs, but let me show you my office first” Pressing the last button, Eva waited patiently while a smile was visible on her face.
With the elevator opening after a few seconds, Christian managed to see a small hallway in front of him.
Walking with Eva, Christian on the way managed to see several private offices occupied by women and men of various ages, while the center saw less elegant, but quite comfortable cubicles with good computers and specialized chairs.
Smiling towards each person who formally greeted her, Eva guided Christian silently towards her office, while all the workers in the place looked at her with wide eyes.
“This is it” Opening a door, Eva takes Christian’s hand and leads him towards the office.
When Eva entered the office, all the workers looked at each other in disbelief.
Walking up to her coworker, one man looked toward the closed door and whispered, “D-did I just see the boss smile?”
“You saw it too? I thought she was crazy…”
“I-I’ve never seen her smile in all these years…” murmured another woman beside her.
“What happened to her?” Looking at the door, another man spoke.
“Isn’t it obvious?” Raising her eyebrows, a woman looked toward the door with a twinkle in her eye “You didn’t see the young man standing next to her?”
“Now that you mention it… I think I saw someone, but I was too amazed by her smile” The man murmured.
“I saw him too, he was incredibly beautiful” Nodded a woman as she approached.
“Maybe it’s her new boyfriend?”
“Are they stupid?” Approaching towards the small group that formed out of nowhere, a man spoke as he took a sip of coffee “It’s the little boss, it’s impossible not to recognize him, after all, the boss has his picture on all the floors”
“T-the little boss!?” Eyes widening, everyone turned and looked toward the woman.
“Wasn’t he in jail!?”
“Looks like he got out” Shrugging, the man took another sip of coffee and continued “But it’s impossible to mistake him, violet eyes and white hair is his special trademark, even the Grey Family logo is the violet eye!”
“Wow…it’s normal for her to smile, her son is back”
“Do you think he will take control of the company again? Everyone knows it’s his”
“I don’t think so, he has no experience”
“No experience? What nonsense are you talking, the kid got his family to go from working in a fast food joint to being the richest family in the world, if he has no experience, no one would qualify to run companies” Looking at the woman who spoke, the man with a coffee in his hand scoffed, then looked to the seat still next to the door and smiled “Let’s see how that stupid guy still thinks he’s the big deal now that the little boss is back, I wouldn’t be surprised if he kicks him out after seeing how arrogant he is”
“Harry? I doubt he’ll get kicked out, he’s been Mrs. Eva’s secretary for years.”
“I heard the little boss was pretty nice as a kid, I also doubt he’ll kick him out”
“*Sigh* We’ll see…”
Meanwhile, Christian looked at his mother’s ostentatious office with curiosity, being totally oblivious to what is being talked about outside.
The office actually takes up a quarter of the floor, having sofas, a coffee table, some doors that seem to lead elsewhere, gray carpets covering half of the floor, a large desk in front of the window and even a large bookcase on one wall.
Seeing Eva’s decorations, Christian raised his eyebrows “Are those basketballs signed?”
“Yes, all signed by my favorite players” Eva chuckled lightly, then pointing to her work desk and speaking “Sit down.”
Nodding, Christian walks over to the desk as Leslie stood still by the door with a stoic face.
Sitting down in the comfortable chair, Christian turns in it and looks out the window at the city.
“You have to see it at night” Smiling, Eva sat down on the couch and looked at the handsome young man in his suit behind a luxurious desk “Really your picture is perfect there.”
“Thank you” Smiling slightly, Christian pursed his lips for a few seconds, then looked at the time and sighed “In 3 hours my team should be arriving…but first, I’ll see if anyone is showing up”
Pulling out his cell phone, Christian looked at the front camera and smiled “Emily, I need you, if you can come, I’m waiting for you.”
Not bothered by no answer, Christian puts the cell phone down on the table and looks at his mother “What do you usually do?”
“I spend most of the time the projects and investment ideas that come in, I also have to approve changes and some more important hires, apart from that I have to attend daily meetings with the teams of each company and at the same time, be aware of the companies we invest money in”
“That’s a lot of work, how boring” Looking at Eva’s desk, Christian saw the family picture they took when they arrived at the new mansion in Detroit, seeing smiles on all faces.
Looking up, Christian noticed the picture he drew of Eva before he went to jail hanging in the center of the room “Aren’t you ashamed to show that picture?”
Turning her gaze, Eva smiled fondly at the sight of the drawing “Not at all, in fact, several businesswomen or politicians who have come to my office asked for the one who did the drawing, they wanted one of their own”
“You told them it was me?”
