Levi immediately recognized her as well.
He had been matchmade with this woman, even before his high school years.
It was because when they were both children, his adoptive parents had arranged for her to be his betrothed.
Lauren’s father, Isaac Fletcher, was good friends with Levi’s adoptive father.
The Fletchers were considered to be a prominent family, but they weren’t up to the Garrison family’s level.
Not long after they had adopted Levi, Lauren was born. Hence, Isaac had put forth the idea of a childhood betrothal, with the intention of sinking his claws into the Garrison family.
Although Levi’s adoptive parents didn’t quite approve of the Fletchers’ status, they agreed to it anyway, since Levi was adopted.
When Levi prospered, the Fletcher family was over the moon.
After all, if Levi became a force to be reckoned with, it would prove that the Fletchers had bet on the right horse.
Lauren had become infatuated with Levi, following him everywhere like a lovesick puppy.
Ultimately, the Fletcher family had only agreed to sever all ties, upon seeing that Levi and Zoey had gotten together. Thereafter, they had cancelled the betrothal, spitting out threats that Levi would come to regret his decision.
Since then, Lauren wasn’t mentioned again and he had only heard that she had gone to study abroad.
On the day of Levi’s imprisonment, Isaac had even visited him to add insult to his injury.
Lauren was also thrilled to know that Levi had been imprisoned, taking great pleasure in his misfortune.
This was especially apparent when she found out that Zoey had been living a widow’s life. Her heart had almost burst with elation.
She had always held Zoey responsible for taking away what should have been hers.
The title of lady boss of Levi Group should have been hers!
“Hehe! You can still recognize me? Consider me impressed!” Lauren smiled sweetly.
Immediately after, the smile fell from her lips. “What? You can’t possibly be the one whom Morris Group has sent to negotiate on their behalf, right?”
“I am! And you’re representing Triple Group?” Levi threw back a question at her.
“I’m guessing that you still don’t know who I really am,” Lauren smirked, while announcing in a mocking manner.
“Enlighten me.” Levi raised his brows.
“Listen up. Standing before you is the general manager of Triple Group!” someone beside her immediately introduced.
The man continued asking, “And who might you be? How dare Morris Group send you to negotiate?”
Before Levi had the chance to speak, Lauren’s assistant came over with a tablet stating, “Ms. Fletcher, Levi Garrison is a technical consultant at Morris Group. In fact, he doesn’t have a proper position; it’s merely an empty title! Besides, it was the supervisor of the technical department, Isaiah Wade, who had brought him in!”
“In short, Levi Garrison was hired through connections!”
Lauren’s smile grew upon hearing this.
The headhunting company was the best at digging up information.
They had already found out about Levi and his involvement with Morris Group, including those who had hated him. She knew everything that she had needed to know.
According to the information that they had retrieved, most of the people at Morris Group were very dissatisfied about Levi getting hired through connections.
He had been fired before, but later on, he had entered once again, through the backdoor.
Morris Group had conducted a questionnaire with ‘most hated employee’ as one of its questions.
Eighty percent of the employees wrote down Levi’s name because all of them relied on their own abilities to earn a place in the company.
Levi was the only one who got in, through the easy way!
“Levi, I thought that after you were released from prison, you would return to your former glory. I didn’t expect you to be finished for good! I see that you’re fooling around every day! How did you become this way?” Lauren asked with a smile laced with venom.
When she heard that Levi had come on behalf of Morris Group, her first thought was that he was the boss of Morris Group.
After she read the detailed information on him, her heart finally eased.
It turned out that Levi’s imprisonment had taken a toll on him and that he was now completely useless.
