Chapter 31: Chapter 34: The First Time Seeing His Face Clearly
The car started again, and Lily Gray was taken straight to the Royal Palace building.
The Royal Palace building is located in the most valuable area of the downtown, a 188-story building that belongs entirely to the Royal Palace Group. This is the global Headquarters of the Royal Palace Group.
The Royal Palace Group is the top financial tycoon in Eastonia and even the world. The CEO of the Royal Palace Group, known as Mr. Cooper, is called Mr. Lucas within the Lucas family. He is the real decision-maker of the Lucas family and the head of the family, Aidan Lucas.
Taking an exclusive elevator directly to the top floor, Samuel Mckinley led Lily Gray to the entrance of the CEO’s office.
“Mr. Lucas, I’ve brought her here.” Samuel Mckinley knocked gently on the door and spoke respectfully to the person inside.
“Let her in.”
A cold voice came from inside the room. Samuel Mckinley gently opened the door of the CEO’s office and bowed to invite Lily Gray inside.
For some reason, seeing the slightly opened door, a surge of fear suddenly appeared in Lily Gray’s heart.
Should she really go in?
Once she takes this step, perhaps, it will be a lifetime of entanglement.
Thinking of the man’s hot embrace and his overbearing kiss, Lily Gray knew that she might be making a deal with the devil.
“Please, Miss Gray,” Samuel Mckinley urged her gently, and Lily Gray looked at him subconsciously.
Samuel Mckinley had a resolute expression on his face, and Lily Gray understood that she had no way out.
Yes, she couldn’t escape.
An unsuccessful outcast of her family, a foolish woman calculated by her ex-husband, she has no position now to refuse the help of others.
She needed Ethan Wilson, not as a man, but for his power and background.
Even if it meant asking a tiger for its skin, she had to go in.
Taking a deep breath, Lily Gray finally pushed open the door and walked in step by step.
This is an extremely spacious office with a wide view. It has no lavish decoration but is full of masterpieces by famous artists in every corner.
On the ground, a thick gray handmade wool carpet was laid, and the dark-colored sofa was made of the highest-quality genuine leather.
The farthest wall from the door was decorated with a floor-to-ceiling glass window. On the side near the window, there was a large office desk.
Behind the office desk, there was a leather chair facing the doorway.
Apparently, the man she had been with for two nights was sitting behind that very leather chair.
During their previous encounters, they had been intimate but she couldn’t see his face clearly due to blocked vision.
Lily Gray reflexively adjusted her glasses and approached cautiously.
Hearing the footsteps getting closer, the leather chair finally turned around, revealing the man’s exquisite and handsome features.
With his black hair meticulously combed back, the man sitting in the leather chair had the broadest shoulders, the sexiest collarbone, and the most abstinence-filled beautiful face.
He narrowed his eyes as he observed Lily Gray’s reaction, with undisguised flames in his pitch-black pupils.
That kind of gaze seemed to devour her entirely, domineering and flamboyant.
Even though she was prepared, seeing Aidan Lucas’s impactfully perfect features for the first time, Lily Gray’s heart skipped a beat uncontrollably.
Before seeing his face, she knew he had more masculine charm than Austin Lucas, but only when she saw his features clearly did she understand that some people were born to be kings and deserve to stand at the pinnacle of power.
Lily Gray’s gaze lingered on his face for a few seconds before finally, her rationality made her withdraw her overly blatant stare.
“Mr. Cooper,” she tried to calm herself and forced a smile at him..
