My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 42

42 Humiliation

Keira handed the invitation to the staff member. “Can I go in now?”

With just a glance, the staff member immediately stepped aside respectfully. “Please.”

Jake frowned at this. “How did you get an invitation?”

He took a step forward, looking at Keira’s phone. “Don’t tell me you took someone else’s invitation? They

check identification here!”

Then, he saw the name on the invitation and was

stunned.

At these industry gatherings, the nominal company and position of the invitee were typically written on

the invitation.

Jalen’s invitation wasn’t just issued in consideration of the Horton Group, but also due to his personal

influence.

The work unit was only added because he was part of

the Horton Group.

However, some guests had complicated backgrounds

or were famous enough not to need such titles.

The invitation in Keira’s hand simply read, “Keira

Olsen”.

Jake asked in shock, “In what capacity did you get this

invitation?”

“None of your business.”

Keira calmly switched off her phone screen and looked at Jalen. “Shall we go in?”

Jalen had initially resigned to the fact that he might be at a disadvantage today and was regretting his inability to bring Keira in. He was taken aback by this sudden

turn of events.

He followed Keira into the banquet hall. “Where did you get the invitation?”

Just as Keira was about to speak, Jalen cut her off. “It must have been arranged by her cousin, right? It doesn’t specify any company, so you aren’t beholden

to anyone!”

His face darkened. “Jake has crossed the line this time. I won’t let this matter go easily. When we get back to the company, I’ll have to go to…”

Keira thought he was going to say that he’d go see the director of the R&D department or make a scene at the board, but surprisingly, he said, “I’ll go find my cousin and ask him to stand up for me!”

Keira was perplexed.

What happened to hating nepotism?

Probably noticing her confusion, Jalen sheepishly scratched his nose. “I don’t hate nepotism. I hate useless people squatting in positions because of their connections. You don’t know how many people in the Horton Group are coasting by on their connections… Anyway, why should I tell you all this?”

He picked up a glass of champagne. “Let me introduce you to a few people.”

Before Keira had a chance to refuse, Jalen was already

calling out, “Mr. King!”

Keira could only follow him.

The middle-aged man referred to as Mr. King was a senior in the industry, and a throng of people were already engaged in making small talk with him.

He was very respectful to Jalen. “Mr. Riley, it’s rare for you to attend events like this. You finally have time to exchange views with us old-timers today?”

Jalen responded with a laugh. “As a junior, I’m not at all qualified to share my views with you all. Today, I brought someone here to listen to your insights.”

He pushed Keira to the front. “This is our company’s new talent. She resolved a major issue that’s been troubling me for a month. It’s only today that we found the time to leave the office!”

A problem that could trouble Mr. Riley was definitely

not a trivial one.

Jalen deliberately mentioned it to give Keira a step up.

Mr. King and the others indeed showed interest in Keira and turned to look at her with smiles. “Really? We can’t wait for you to introduce her to us.”

Before Jalen could do that, a woman’s voice

interrupted him. “Mr. King, long time no see.”

Everyone turned to look and found Isla in a blue dress with her arm interlinked with Jake Horton.

As soon as she opened her mouth, Mr. King and his companions immediately surrounded her. “Miss Olsen, it’s been a long time! Are you here today with Dr. South?”

Isla smiled. “I don’t know about that. I’m here with my fiancé today. He also works in renewable energy.”

Jake extended his hand to Mr. King. “I’m Jake Horton from Horton Group.”

Mr. King suddenly realized who he was. “I see. You’re young Mr. Horton! What a pleasure to meet you!”

“Miss Olsen, you and young Mr. Horton are a perfect

match…”

“Miss Olsen, we heard that Dr. South had been advising the Olsen Family. When will he finally show himself so we can all learn something from him?”

“Miss Olsen, what problems has Dr. South resolved for

your family?”

Everyone was crowding around Isla.

Jalen and Keira were pushed to the edge of the crowd.

“They’re doing it on purpose!”

Jalen’s expression darkened further, and then he said, “But all of them combined can’t compare to Dr. South. Samuel Morgan will be here later. You can have a few drinks with him.”

Keira didn’t know what to say.

Jalen continued. “You don’t need to feel awkward. Just thicken your skin a little. So many people want to get

up to know Samuel. I’m still not familiar with him till

now…”

Keira twitched her mouth. “I can introduce you to him

later.”

Jalen, however, dismissed it offhand. “You should get to know him first.”

At that moment, a commotion erupted at the entrance. Keira turned to look and saw Samuel arrive!

He was wearing a light grey

pocket. His face was expressionless, quite unlike his usual talkative self in front of her.

Seeing him, the crowd immediately rushed over.

“Mr. Morgan, long time no see!”

“What project have you been busy with recently? Which direction?”

Π

Isla and Jake didn’t immediately follow them. Instead, they walked toward Keira.

A smile appeared on Isla’s face. “Keira, do you need me to introduce you to Mr. Morgan?”

Jake looked somber. “Considering she could get the invitation, she must have extensive connections. I bet she’s known Mr. Morgan for a long time and doesn’t need your introduction.”

Isla said, “Is that so? Mr. Morgan has always been unapproachable. Not everyone can go up and start a conversation with him. I was thinking… Never mind, I won’t be teaching my grandmother to suck eggs”

Disregarding their sarcastic comments, Jalen picked up a glass of champagne from the side and handed it to Keira, giving her a little nudge. “Go and toast Mr. Morgan.”

Jake scoffed. “Horton Group won’t use sex to serve others! More importantly, did you think Samuel Morgan was the lecherous type? So many beautiful women have tried to seduce him to get information on Dr. South, yet he’s remained indifferent! Do you really think you’re so beautiful that you can seduce anyone?”

Isla nudged. “Jake, let’s go meet Mr. Morgan.”

Jake nodded, and the two of them walked toward Samuel Morgan, while Isla called out, “Mr. Morgan!”

Samuel didn’t look their way at first, but upon hearing his name, he glanced in their direction. Seeing Isla, he pursed his lips and was about to look away. He then suddenly noticed the person behind her!

Samuel was initially taken aback, then he walked excitedly toward Keira!

Seeing Samuel’s reaction, Isla was overjoyed.

She had encountered Samuel a few times after she started working at the Olsen family’s company, but Samuel was always aloof and ignored her.

She hadn’t expected him to acknowledge her in front

of outsiders.

Jake straightened up as well. Seeing Samuel Morgan’s reaction, he thought Dr. South held a high opinion of

Isla!

The duo greeted Morgan with smiles on their faces.

Isla began to introduce Jake, “Mr. Morgan, this is …”

But before she could finish, Samuel breezed past them, heading toward the person behind them.

Both were dumbfounded and turned around to find Samuel standing in front of Keira. “What are you doing

here?”
