Chapter 8

“These two bottles are the samples from Rebirth and MN Inc., respectively. Mr. Hall, please try them and see if there’s any difference.” Lily raised her hands high so everyone present could see the bottles she was holding.

“So what if there’s a difference or not?” Nathaniel narrowed his eyes slightly. Then he continued disapprovingly, “Even the judges said the scents and the ingredients are alike. What will charade this prove?”

“This can prove why Rebirth won the competition. Mr. Hall, you insisted I stole MN Inc.’s product, didn’t you? Since you insisted it’s plagiarism, and there’s a difference between the samples, the original product should be the better one, am I right? Since you think it’s unfair, this is your best chance to clarify everything to everyone in our industry and the media.”

All along, Lily had a faint smile and spoke in a gentle voice. Due to the incident in the past, many held prejudices against Lily. However, they found they could not say harsh things to her when she was smiling.

Nathaniel looked at Lily, frowning profoundly and wondering what tricks Lily had up her sleeves as he thought, ‘What is wrong with her today? Why must she make a scene here? Also, I can’t believe she doesn’t listen to what I say anymore.’

“Oh right, you aren’t a professional perfumer after all. Understandably, you are unsure about the more technical things. However, Ms. Thayer should be able to identify the differences since she is the creator of First Love, right?” Lily asked in a thought-provoking manner as she turned to look at Melanie, standing behind Nathaniel.

Melanie held the wine glass in her hand tightly and tried to suppress the panic rising in her heart. She knew better than anyone how Lily created First Love.

It was difficult for Melanie to figure out Lily’s sudden appearance and why Lily put the spotlight on her, asking her to distinguish between the two samples. She was unsure of Lily’s intentions.

Melanie pursed her lips and said, “It’s unfortunate for MN Inc. and Rebirth that such a thing happened today. Of course, First Love’s formulation got leaked, but what’s the point of distinguishing which sample is fake or authentic now? Lily, I don’t know what happened, but we were friends in college. I refuse to pursue this matter any further.” Melanie turned around gracefully and slightly lifted the corner of her dress off the ground, preparing to leave the scene.

“But I want to pursue this matter. What should we do about that?” Lily’s clear voice possessed a hint of tease. She would not let Melanie get away so quickly. It made Melanie stop in her tracks and turn around to stare at Lily with widened eyes.

“Lily, you’re going too far with this!” Nathaniel tilted his head slightly to avoid the cameras that focused on him before he lowered his voice to rebuke Lily impatiently.
