My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 41

41 Rejection

After graduating from university, Isla had been working in the Olsen family business.”

She knew Mrs. Olsen’s email password like the back of

her hand and had studied the content of emails

between Mrs. Olsen and Dr. South.

She noticed that Dr. South would reply to Mrs. Olsen instantly without asking extra questions and would solve the issue at hand right away.

He clearly held Mrs. Olsen in high esteem.

That was why Isla dared to fabricate the lie that Dr. South had accepted the Horton Group’s invitation.

With a smile on her face, Isla opened the email and saw the reply.

“I’m only responsible for the Olsen family. I’m not required to deal with issues concerning the Horton Group.”

Isla’s smile froze.

Seeing that she was upset, Jake asked with a frown, “What’s wrong?”

Regaining her composure, Isla lied. “Dr. South said that it would take a few days to solve this issue…”

Jake heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s normal. This issue is indeed challenging, but I have a bet with Kei… I mean, the people of Group One that we’ll have a solution before Friday. Is that okay?”

Isla said confidently, “No problem.”

But her eyes were flickering.

He said he had a bet with Keira!

Jake quickly returned to the Horton family.

Thinking about Keira, he felt somewhat uneasy.

Oliver, his father, smiled at him and patted his shoulder, which was quite unusual, and praised him. “Here comes my amazing son! You actually managed to invite Dr. South, and you’ll quickly establish yourself in the R&D department!”

Jake was pleasantly surprised. “Dad, don’t worry. I’ll work much harder to help you regain your position of

power!”

“Good!” Oliver went to the master bedroom without any intention of going out again.

“Jake, is your dad not going out to find that woman tonight? Is he staying home instead?”

Jake’s mother, Melissa Knight, had tears of joy in her eyes. “You have to be better than that illegitimate daughter! Only then will your father change his

attitude!”

She wiped her tears. “Although old Mrs. Horton detests Isla, that girl did a splendid job this time! Okay, enough said. I’ll go tuck your father into bed.”

Watching his mother happily enter the bedroom, Jake

clenched his fists.

Proposing to Isla and bringing Dr. South as part of the bargain was his correct first step.

Having already made a choice, he wouldn’t have

regrets.

As for Keira, she had to be his!

“Ah-choo!”

Keira sneezed.

She rubbed her nose and returned her gaze to her computer, reaching out blindly to get some water but realized she had already emptied his glass.

She placed the cup back and continued to immerse

herself in her work.

All of a sudden, her vision dimmed.

Looking up, she saw Lewis fetching her a glass of water and placing it on the side table.

Keira was slightly baffled. “Thank you.””

“You’re welcome. It was nothing.”

After that, he returned to his usual spot.

Old Mrs. Horton looked at the two, unable to stop

grinning.

She felt she would see her great-grandson before

long!

What should she call the child of her grandson and her granddaughter-in-law?

Old Mrs. Horton put on her reading glasses, picked up the dictionary and The Book of Songs, and started flipping through it…

As the night grew deeper, the Shiba Inu named “Kitten” was bored and left old Mrs. Horton’s side. It wagged its tail at Keira and finally laid down and slept at Lewis’s

feet.

The next day, Lewis didn’t show signs of an injury and was still in his black suit.

Burns were typically the most hurtful kind of injury, but he endured the pain without uttering a word since being injured.

Keira couldn’t help but marvel at his resilience.

As they left for work, Keira no longer felt awkward and got into Lewis’s car.

Tom was sitting in the passenger seat and observed the two of them through the rearview mirror.

His boss and Miss Olsen were each doing their own

thing, not communicating or having a conversation, but he felt something subtly changing.

The car soon arrived at the company, and Keira bid Lewis farewell as she got out.

She was immediately stopped by Jake upon reaching the R&D department.

He was standing in the rest area outside the elevator with a cup of coffee. “There’s an industry networking eyent about new energy sources tonight. All

distinguished individuals from the industry have been invited, and Dr. South might attend.”

Keira didn’t stop. “Then?”

“The R&D department of Horton Group received an invitation. I could take you to broaden your horizons and network, which would be beneficial to your future career development.”

“No need, thank you.”

Keira entered the group office without looking back.

Jake stayed where he was, his face grim.

Jalen, yawning and wearing slippers, casually walked past him, and said mockingly, “Just an invitation, and you think you can buy her over? Keira isn’t that

short-sighted!”

Jake coldly replied, “Jalen, if you truly care for her, you should be encouraging her to follow me. You know that I can offer her better resources! Who do you think can attend this kind of gatherings?”

Jalen looked at him. “At least I can take her there.”

It was not surprising for Jalen to get an invitation, since he was the core member of the R&D department.

Jake’s eyes glinted.

Keira worked the whole day.

At the end of the day, Jalen stopped her, “There’s a job tonight. Come with me.”

“Alright.”

Without giving it much thought, Keira only texted

Lewis saying that she would be working overtime, and rode off with Jalen.

They soon arrived at a commercial cocktail party.

Jalen explained, “You stick with me later, and I’ll introduce you to some influential figures in the industry. Dr. South rarely attends these kinds of gatherings. Chances are he won’t be there, so don’t get your hopes up.”

Keira understood and couldn’t help but chuckle.

She was genuinely uninterested in these sorts of networking events, but since they were already there, they might as well check it out. It seemed that she hadn’t seen Samuel in a long time.

As the two reached at the entrance, Jalen showed the invitation, preparing to bring her in, but was stopped by a staff member.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Riley, but we’ve been informed about the attendees from the Horton Group today, and your

name is not on the list.”

Jalen frowned. “How is that possible?!”

His reputation in the circle was highly regarded, and ordinarily, such social gatherings were events he

wouldn’t bother to attend. How could he not be

allowed in?!

Jake walked out with a glass of champagne and squinted, “Mr. Riley, there are a lot of tasks in Group One of R&D, and I thought you wouldn’t attend, so I declined on your behalf when they were preparing the list. I’m afraid it’s too late to add you back in now. You should head back!”

Jalen was furious, “Jake, you’ve crossed the line! Why do you get to turn down the invitation on my behalf?”

Jake coldly retorted, “Jalen, you must understand that your standing in the industry is due to the Horton Group. They invited you as a member of the Horton Group, and as the deputy manager of the R&D

department, of course, I can decide for you!”

Jalen was livid.

People like him with real skills would be respected and given preferential treatment no matter which

company they were in. If he were to leave the Horton

Group, countless companies would want to hire him.

Even the director of the R&D department wouldn’t dare to disregard him, and yet Jake, the deputy, was trying to pull rank on him?!

“I advise you not to make a scene. We are all respectable people here. Surely, you wouldn’t want to be escorted away by security?”

After Jake finished, he looked at Keira. “Keira, do you see it now? Without my approval, you can’t even get through this door!”

Keira looked up calmly, “Is that so?”

She took out her phone, opened the invitation from Samuel in her email, and handed it to the staff

member.
