When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 21

Chapter 21

James cleared his throat. “Since Dad is stable now, why don’t we transfer him here?” This way, there would be a vacancy at Prover Hospital. They could then ask the Jackson family to transfer James over.

Ella nodded. “That’s what I think too.”

The phone rang suddenly, interrupting them. It was from James’s secretary. “Mr. Miller, Dale Group just said they wanted to end the collaboration.”

“What?” James’s eyes went wide in disbelief.

Dale Group had twenty–nine diamond mines globally, making it the largest and most renowned company, and involved in many aspects of the industry. It was also the supplier for the internationally renowned Quaria.

A year ago. Dale Group proposed a collaboration with Miller Jewels, offering a discount on their supply. Ella and Phillip thought Dale Group recognized their potential. Perhaps they would be an internationally renowned luxury brand like Quaria.

Since then, Miller Jewels had grown significantly. The termination would have a significant impact on Miller Jewels.

“Why?” James demanded.

The secretary was startled by James’s frantic tone. “I–I don’t know.”

James shouted, “You didn’t ask? Did I pay you to loaf around?”

The secretary stammered, “Mr. Miller, I did ask, but they didn’t explain. They even…”

James barked out, “What? Spit it out.”

The secretary stuttered. “The person said it was great. They hated seeing how we ruined their exquisite handpicked gems by turning them into ugly and tasteless jewelry. They said we have no aesthetic sense

James had to rein in his fury.

“Mr. Miller… Are you there? Should I continue? the secretary asked cautiously.

“Go on,” James ground out.

They said that only the Wish collection was good. The rest is rubbish. They suggested we treat that designer well. Or we are done for,” the secretary said.

Gina designed the Wish collection. Even if James and Noah attributed it to Olivia, it didn’t change this.

“Mr. Miller, what should we do now?” the secretary questioned nervously.

James didn’t know either. His mind was in chaos. “Negotiate and see what we can do so they will reconsider.”

Yes, sir, the secretary said and hung up.

James rubbed his throbbing temple.

Ella had also heard. She was puzzled. She thought after Gina left, things should have improved. But things seemed to have

worsened

Ella was superstitious. While they brought Gina back a year ago, they weren’t close to Gina as they didn’t rear her. However, Ella encountered a fortune teller when she went to the church to pray for Olivia. The fortune teller told her Gina would bring bad luck and they shouldn’t get too close to her. Thus, Ella let Gina board in school.

After consideration, James decided to call the CEO of Dale Group, Elsen Frost. However, he received the message Tm sorry but the number you dialed is currently busy.”

After calling several times in vain, James realized Elsen had blocked him. Enraged, James threw his phone on the ground.

Ella quickly calmed him down. James, chill. Focus on getting better. Noah’s handling the company stuff for now. He’ll deal

with it.

James’s expression changed slightly as he agreed reluctantly.

Night fell. Gina returned home and lay down on the bed after a shower. She discovered dozens of messages from Gabriel Why was Gabriel so chatty? Her intuition told her he wasn’t talkative.

Gabriel had sent several restaurants for her to choose from and inquired about her preferences, dietary restrictions, and various little things. He was meticulous.

However, since Gina hadn’t checked her phone, his last message stated: [Why are you ignoring me?]

Gina replied: [I didn’t check it earlier.]

Gabriel responded quickly. [So? Have you chosen where to go?]

Gina chose randomly. [Let’s go to that one with spicy wings.]

Gabriel: [So you like spicy food?]

Gina was speechless. Was Gabriel trying to find out what she liked? She replied: [Yeah.]

Remembering she hadn’t checked the email Caleb sent her, Gina messaged Gabriel: [It’s late. I’m gonna rest.]

Gabriel: [Okay. Goodnight then.]

Gina: [Sure.]

Gabriel thought Gina would reply “Goodnight” to him. Everything she did was beyond his expectations.

To Cabriel, saying goodnight was intimate. Besides, Gina could start by saying goodnight and move on to say “I love you“.

Gina was the one woman Gabriel had ever said it to.

“Mr. Jackson, we’re here. David’s voice pulled Cabriel back to reality.

Gabriel had just finished working and asked David to drive him home.

David asked curiously, “Mr. Jackson, were you chatting with Miss Miller? Why else would Gabriel be smiling as he looked at his phone!

Chapter 21

“Yeah, Gabriel responded coldly.

Gabriel returned to his decisive and dominating, yet cold and aloof demeanor. With his ability to freeze anyone to their bones, few dared to look at him directly. However, Gabriel made an exception for Gina and would become gentle.
