The ten million they spent were all in vain.
Since the investment conference was already around the corner, they now put all their hopes on Zoey.
Meredith and Robert beckoned Zoey over and inquired about how things had been progressing.
Zoey said she had done everything she could—but she was still unsure about how things would turn out.
Nevertheless, she remembered what Levi told her. He said the results were entirely within his control. Since Levi was so confident, she should also trust him. They would face it together even if they lost.
“I think the project will be ours!” Zoey said.
“Are you sure?” Meredith’s eyes glimmered with hope.
Robert was so excited he stood up and exclaimed, “Really? Are we gonna win the project?”
“Of course! We will nail it!” Zoey repeated. She was sure Levi would make it.
This was how much Zoey trusted her husband—she trusted him no matter what came their way.
As long as it was something Levi was confident about, she would stand by him without a doubt.
“That’s great! Success has always been on your side, I’m sure it will be the same this time too!” Meredith said, almost bursting into tears of joy.
This project was worth fifty billion. This meant the Black family would pocket at least tens of billions of profit.
This was a big fortune.
“But I have a condition,” Zoey said.
“What is it?” they asked unanimously.
“This project will be under the Black family, but I want to be in charge of all the details,” Zoey pronounced her condition.
“What?” they murmured. They did not seem pleased with what they just heard.
How could Zoey be the only person in charge of how the project was rolled out?
This was unreasonable.
“No way. This is the Black family’s project, how can we let an outsider run things?” one of them protested.
“Yeah! It won’t look good on us if outsiders find out about it!” another agreed.
Voices of disagreement quickly spread among them.
“Zoey, you should stand clear of the Black family’s finances to prevent any misunderstandings, don’t you think so?” Jennie suggested.
“Yeah, I agree. Imagine what would the old folks make of it?” Logan said.
“This is my condition. It’s either y’all accept it or just forgo the project,” Zoey said adamantly.
“Alright then. Grandma and grandpa accept this condition. You will take full charge of the project!” Meredith promised.
After getting a satisfactory answer, Zoey finally left.
After she left, Bailey and other people grumbled. “Dad, mom, how could y’all allow that?”
“Well, we just need to wait till the project comes to us. By then she won’t even have a say in it,” Meredith said gleefully.
“But I thought you promised her?” someone asked.
“I don’t have to admit it! When the time comes, all of you just have to be my witnesses and say I never promised her anything.”
Hearing what Meredith said, the Blacks smiled slyly.
