Chapter 7

The crowd was astonished. Few people knew Lily’s whereabouts after she disappeared from the industry, let alone her relationship with Nathaniel.

At this moment, the reporters were the most excited ones. Initially, they thought they would only get to write an ordinary news article about the event tonight. No one expected there to be any plagiarism and betrayal affairs. It was exhilarating for them just thinking about it.

Lily watched as Nathaniel walked toward her while he said regretfully, “You’re part of us at MN Inc. When did you become a social climber and move to another company? You did not inform me, and… you even took my company’s product with you?”

His voice was not loud, but because there was a microphone next to him, everyone in the audience could hear him.

“She’s a traitor then. Now I see why there’s an issue of plagiarism,” someone said in realization.

“Everyone praised her too highly back then. I remember the media had exaggerated her talent when she won the Best Newcomer award. Look at her now. Tsk…”

“It’s a crime to steal a company’s confidential information. We should call the cops on her!”

“Not only does she not have a sense of smell, but she does not have a conscience. I have to say she’s quite the beauty, but what’s the use of that when she’s a thief?”

Everyone said nasty things about Lily, and Nathaniel had to suppress his smugness at this moment. Although he had no idea what was going on, at least he managed to save his company from the current crisis.

Then Nathaniel looked at the person-in-charge of Rebirth victoriously, feigning kindness as he said, “I think your company must’ve misunderstood something and fell victim to deceit. It is all merely a misunderstanding. Surely, your company is not at fault here. However, everyone knows that a product belongs to its creator. It is obvious that First Love belongs to MN Inc.”

“Mr. Hall, you said that…” A voice that sounded abruptly interrupted Nathaniel’s words.
