“What’s wrong?” Sebastian Brenand asked.
“Letitia Entertainment’s young master, Magnus, would like to meet you.”
“Why?” Sebastian took a sip of red wine half-heartedly.
“He’s hoping to join forces with you to crush X Entertainment… He said that the entire entertainment industry is going to fall into their hands if the two of you don’t do something now.”
Sebastian frowned slightly. “Ask him to get lost. Tell him that going against X Entertainment means going against me!”
“Yes, sir!” Jean Hanson nodded courteously.
“Don’t ever talk about this matter with me in the future. I don’t care which company it is. As long as they dare to touch X Entertainment, ask them to f*ck off. Don’t waste my time on them.” Sebastian snapped.
Jean responded with a polite nod and left.
Offended by the ignorant request, Sebastian grabbed the wine glass and gulped down the red wine. After Jean left Sebastian’s office, he headed straight to the waiting room on the first floor.
In the middle of the couch sat Magnus, speaking arrogantly to his father over the phone.
“Don’t worry. I’ll ally with King Entertainment this time. Yes, we might not be able to deal with X Entertainment alone. However, things will be different if we have King Entertainment on our side. We can surely turn our tables on our rival when the time comes.”
Magnus’s face was glowing with confidence and proudness.
Noticing Jean was coming in his direction, he immediately hung up the phone and asked, “Can I meet your boss now?”
Jean shook his head.
“What did he say?” Magnus asked eagerly.
“He asked you to get lost.”
Magnus was dumbfounded. “What? Isn’t your boss worried about X Entertainment overtaking him? X Entertainment is doing better and better. Their artists have occupied most of the resources in the entertainment industry. Isn’t he jealous?”
“My boss said that going against X Entertainment is the same as going against him,” Jean calmly replied.
“Why? Does your boss have some shares in X Entertainment?”
“No,” Jean shook his head.
“Why is he doing this then?” Magnus could not make a head nor tail of Sebastian’s decision.
Jean gave Magnus a curt nod and stalked out of the waiting room, completely ignoring his question. Magnus was left speechless.
In the office, Sebastian slowly put down his glass of wine and got up from the sofa. He shuffled to the office desk and plopped down on the armchair languidly. He then turned on his computer, ready to start working.
Buzz buzz buzz…
Suddenly, his phone vibrated.
Seeing his mother’s name on the screen, Sebastian immediately answered the call. “Yes?”
“Set aside the night after tomorrow. You’re going to Silver International Hotel for a blind date at eight o’clock that night. That girl is your dad’s friend’s daughter, born with a silver spoon in her mouth. I’ve seen her pictures before. She’s pretty. You should meet her.”
“Nah, I’m not going…” Sebastian refused outright.
“Why? I’ve never seen you reject a blind date before. What’s wrong with you today?”
“I’m not in the mood.”
“Is it because of Rachel Wood? I heard that you’re now a total mess because of her.”
“How do you know?” Sebastian frowned when he heard Rachel’s name.
“You looked miserable two days ago. You even got yourself into a car accident. Am I not worried? Shouldn’t I ask your men when I’m worried about you?” His mother hissed.
“Since you know how miserable I am now, please stop putting me on a blind date, alright? Give me some time to put my mind to rest,” Sebastian said while massaging his forehead.
“Look at yourself! Is it worth turning yourself into a living corpse for that filthy woman?”
“Come on… Stop talking about her… We’re over. I’ll be fine real soon. Just leave me alone for now.”
Sebastian really did not have the mood to go on some blind dates for the time being.
