The Black family didn’t want to let this opportunity slip past them, but they didn’t exactly have the capabilities to grab on any projects.
Zoey, on the other hand, was different.
She had the Morris Group backing her. In fact, as long as she wanted to, it wouldn’t even be that difficult for her to get her hands on a few of the bigger projects. Besides, if Zoey didn’t succeed, they would then have the perfect excuse to keep Zoey and Levi apart. After that, they could just find a better man for Zoey and marry her off into a rich, aristocratic family. Either way, it was a win-win situation for the Blacks.
“Zoey, you have to understand that this is the best move for you and your parents,” said Robert.
“I have given your father an executive position at Black Corporation. As for your mother, I’ve also pulled some strings to have her transferred to one of the top hospitals here in South City, and she’s even been appointed as the head of her department. So they are both very supportive of this plan,” explained Meredith.
Zoey looked at the people in front of her. “So what you’re saying is, as long as I successfully land a project worth at least fifty billion, then none of you will meddle in my relationship with Levi anymore?”
“That’s right! And we promise to keep up our end of the bargain. Even your parents will have no further say,” nodded Meredith.
“Alright. I’ll agree then,” conceded Zoey.
For the sake of her relationship with Levi, she needed to give it a try.
Later that day, after Zoey returned to the company, she immediately started looking into everything concerning the investment conference.
Her secretary came up to her. “Ms. Lopez, even though the investment conference is organized by South City, the person-in-charge isn’t actually someone from here.
It’s rumored that they are completely impartial, and that they’ll award the projects to the best applicants.”
“It’s good to hear that such a person is in charge.
Otherwise some of the bigger conglomerates and rich families would have split the majority of the projects amongst themselves.”
Zoey’s eyes were shining. This was undeniably good news for her. It meant that she would have a better chance of succeeding.
Right then, Levi walked in. He had dropped by to see her.
“You look troubled. What’s wrong?” asked Levi.
Zoey told Levi about the mission the Blacks had forced upon her.
“A project worth fifty billion? That’s easy. And here I thought you were worried about something unfeasible,” chuckled Levi.
He was the person in charge so all the decisions were going to be made by him. So, like he said, it was literally easy enough. That being said, he wasn’t actually worried about the threat from the Blacks or Zoey’s parents to keep them apart. He just found it troublesome.
If Zoey’s family was going to cause problems for them at every turn, then it was going to be pretty annoying. So it would be best if everything could be taken care of in one go.
Zoey stared at him with her eyes wide.
“Huh? Easy? I’m talking about a project worth fifty billion here. Not to mention I’m not bidding for the project using Morris Group but personally. This is so hard that it’s nearly impossible!”
“Why’re you so stressed out? Just one word from me, and you’ll get your project,” grinned Levi.
“You’re not going to pester the boss of Morris Group again, are you? I’ve just asked Iris, and she said that the boss isn’t involved with any of this. So do you still have a way?” asked Zoey.
