“Jasper, in addition to this matter, there is one more thing. The people you invited from Sangtel are also here…”
“Oh? Coincidentally, I need to talk to them about something,” Jasper remembered one of his previous plans.
After negotiating a contract, he asked his people to invite the team from Sangtel over.
Upon hearing this, Henry went downstairs to welcome the person from Sangtel.
“Miss Bigelow, please come with me. Mr. Laine is waiting for you upstairs.”
Miss Bigelow smiled slightly and followed Henry.
After pushing the door to enter the room, Henry said to Jasper.
“Jasper, she’s here. This is Miss Lorelai Bigelow.”
Jasper looked back and was amazed by Miss Bigelow, who was wearing a traditional Somerland dress.
Miss Bigelow looked to be in her early thirties. She was wearing a blue dress to show off her perfect figure. Her slender and beautiful legs were wrapped in black stockings. In addition to her black-rimmed glasses and mole at the corners of her eyes, anyone would be stunned when they saw her.
“Are you Miss Bigelow? What a beauty!”
Jasper quickly averted his eyes as it would be rude to keep staring.
Miss Bigelow was also surprised. She did not expect Mr. Laine to be so young.
“Are you Mr. Laine? You are so young and promising. How admirable… You don’t have to call me Miss Bigelow. My first name is Lorelai, and most people who know me well call me Lory.”
Jasper felt slightly embarrassed by this. Eventually, he shook his head slightly.
“To avoid unnecessary misunderstanding, I think it’s better to call you Miss Bigelow.”
“It doesn’t matter. It’s just a title. You can call me anything you want.”
Lorelai did not mind if Jasper did not listen to her suggestions. However, from their conversation, Lorelai understood that Jasper was probably not a lecher. In her previous deals, men would stare at Lorelai lecherously whenever she appeared.
Aside from averting his rude stares, Jasper knew not to worm his way into being friends with her. It was rare for Lorelai to meet men like this, so she started to become interested in him.
“Miss Bigelow, we should get straight to the topic… This is actually a pretense. The man in Qari is my stand in. It’s inconvenient to tell you the details.”
Lorelai’s eyes looked solemn when she heard that. After she sat down, she knew the person in front of her was the real Jasper.
“Is this a scam?” Lorelai asked.
“You can say that, but I have my difficulties. However, please believe me when I say this scam benefits you. If not, I wouldn’t have to meet you to tell you the truth.”
Lorelai felt that what Jasper said made sense, so she decided to continue listening to him.
Jasper nodded and continued, “We want to build a new telecommunications company, but not now. I need you to help me build momentum, so when the time comes, success will come naturally.”
Jasper finally told Lorelai the truth now, and she wanted to get more context.
“Tell me everything. I will help you if I won’t put myself in a difficult position.”
“That’s great. It’s simple. I hope to use this pretext to lure my enemy into continuing investing. I want them to have a debt that they can never pay back… This is bold, which is why I need you to be my guarantor. This is the reason I am asking for your help. You don’t need to do or say anything. You just need to work with me to make this lie more perfect.”
Lorelai understood what was happening. However, she was still against Jasper asking her to lie.
