Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 89
Nevertheless, Charlie was not discouraged, and he could give her more time.
After ordering, the two chatted casually. Then, Avery picked up her phone and fiddled with it.
“Avery, do you have any issues with our cooperation?” Charlie asked casually as he took a sip of red wine.
Avery was reading the news, and she looked up at him when she heard his voice.
“Your plan is fine, but there are still some disagreements on our side,” said Avery casually.
Charlie laughed. “What are the disagreements? Let’s see if I can help.”
Avery replied, “It’s fine. I can handle it myself.”
The disagreements stemmed from herself. In fact, the management of Tate Industries was very eager to accept investment from Trust Capital, but Avery was still hesitating. She had promised to meet with Charlie because she had wanted to get to know him a little better. However, no matter how well Charlie performed, he was still Chelsea’s brother, and it was hard for Avery to rid herself of the prejudice she held against him.
Avery wanted to earn a profit, but she also had to consider the consequences of failure. Only when she felt she could accept the worst would she nod her head in agreement.
In the blink of an eye, it was already 2 p.m.
Charlie and Avery entered the exhibition hall and took their seats in the first row. After a while, the host came on the stage and gave a speech, welcoming everyone to the event.
“Today, we have a mysterious guest with us, and this mysterious guest made a request to our robot, Lucy.”
As the host spoke, Lucy made a grand debut. Lucy was very realistic. It was a female figure, about 1.5 meters tall with long brown hair, wearing a blue and white uniform.
Then, the host continued, “Let’s see if Lucy can fulfill the mysterious guest’s request!”
Applause sounded from below the stage.
Lucy’s eyes swept across the stage, and then she stepped off the stage.
All eyes were on Lucy as they wondered who the mysterious guest was, and what was his request.
After a moment, Lucy walked toward the first row. Avery watched it approach and thought it was impressive. She did not expect robots these days to be so realistic. The scientists were able to make them walk and talk as human being would. It was simply incredible!
Just when Avery sighed at the power of modern technology, Lucy stopped in front of her. She thought something was wrong with Lucy, so she poked Lucy’s arm.
Lucy stretched out its robot hand and said coquettishly, “Pretty lady, would you like to come with me?”
Avery was stunned.
There was laughter all around.
Avery blushed and asked, “Lucy, where are you taking me?”
Lucy answered, “There’s a handsome man who wants to date you. He’s so handsome! Come, see him with me!”
Lucy’s voice was childish and playful, and it was hard to say no.
Avery pointed at Charlie and joked, “There’s a handsome guy next to me.”
Lucy glanced at Charlie, then waved at Avery. “He’s not as good- looking as that handsome man. That guy is really handsome! I want to marry him! If you met him, you would want to marry him too!”
Lucy’s answer caused the audience to burst into laughter.
The host saw that Avery and Lucy were at a stalemate, so he chimed in, “Miss, why don’t you go and meet the guy with Lucy? After the event, we’ll give you some attractive gifts!”
Avery was caught in a dilemma. Ignoring Lucy would be a minute matter, but she could not just brush off the organizer! Hence, she got up and followed Lucy backstage.
After entering the backstage, she saw a familiar face–
