Chapter 6

The figure wore a simple and plain white dress. The lights focused on her body, and everyone was dazzled when she walked out with a graceful aura around her. Lily dressed simply and did not wear any jewelry. Her makeup was also faint, yet it accentuated her natural beauty.

“L-Lily?!” Nathaniel could not believe his eyes and could not digest what exactly happened. He instinctively took a few quick steps forward and faced Lily. He lowered his voice and said, “What are you doing here?”

“I came here to participate in the competition, of course.” Lily glanced at him. Her lips revealed a mischievous smile as she leaned over and continued to move forward.

“Lily!” Nathaniel pulled her wrist, his low voice exasperated, “Stop fooling around! This is not the occasion for such things!”

Alexander squinted at the screen in the VIP room, looking at Lily’s restless hand. Then his glance sharpened suddenly.

The next second, Lily pulled her arm away from Nathaniel’s grasp with force. “Mr. Hall, since you know this is an important occasion, I suggest you behave yourself!” Her words echoed throughout the venue, and she was already on the stage.

Her transformation greatly exceeded Nathaniel’s expectations, and he looked at the woman standing on the stage in surprise. Lily had always been well-behaved, so how did she…

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I’m Rebirth’s very own perfumer, Lily. I was the one who made First Love.” Lily was unhurried, and every word she spoke was clear. Everyone present could hear her.

Looking at Lily on the stage, Melanie gripped the wine glass in her hand and gritted her teeth to maintain a superficial smile. She glared at Nathaniel, signaling him to salvage the situation urgently. However, Nathaniel had firmly locked his gaze on Lily as he wondered what she would do.

“The organizing committee has informed me there was a clash in creativity with First Love. I was surprised to hear that, but I believe the judges will make a fair decision. Still, I am willing to accept further investigation.” Afterward, Lily took two steps back away from the microphone. She looked decent and elegant, which made her seem honest.

“L-Lily? I feel like I’ve heard of this person before.”
