Chapter 25

President Fuller?

Sonia looked at the door of the private

room, just in time to meet Toby’s cold

gaze. After just one second, she averted her eyes and released the

teapot in her hand.


“President Fuller, why are you here?” Chester, who was sitting next to Sonia, stood up and asked politely.

The men in the private room were all


one generation older than Toby-some

even two-but Toby’s power in the

industry was obvious to everyone.

Coupled with the fact that the Fuller

Group was currently at the peak of

their power, they wouldn’t dare get into a public dispute with Toby.

Toby shot Sonia a glance, then walked

in and said in his deep voice, “I heard

that you were here playing cards, Mr.

King, so I came to say hello.”

“It’s Friday today. It’s fine. Come and

play some cards.” As opposed to the

arrogance he displayed in front of

Sonia, at this moment, he was

speaking to Toby with a smile. “It just

so happened that President Reed

came to talk about the order of the

goods, so she stayed to play a few

rounds with us.”

Chester smiled and chimed in. “That’s

right. I’m friends with Sonia’s father, He’s very good at playing cards, but she must be rather unlucky, because she keeps losing.”

The other two bosses muttered a few

words in agreement as well, then they

took the opportunity to exchange

business cards with Toby.

Meanwhile, Sonia was silently fiddling

with her cards.

After receiving the business cards

from the two men, Toby strode toward

Paul and said blankly, “You guys carry

on playing. I’ll just watch.”

Paul understood the man’s actions as

gave up his seat.
