Unexpected Second Chance At Love Book 1 Chapter 326
The days passes by smoothly without any drama and the long-awaited fashion show finally arrive. In the early morning, while others are preparing for their day, some are in a hurry.
On the most important day for every designer, An Qing was packed with all the employees. The fashion show will take place in the evening, but that still does not mean anyone can relax. Between the time given now until the show, any wrong move and An Qing can kiss first place goodbye.
Inside the main design room, the employees ran and gather everything that is needed for the final touches of each designs. While the employees and design team continue their work, a woman wearing sunglasses enters the chaotic room.
The white newsboy cap on top of her head frames her head shape. She wore a tight black dress with a pink fur coat over. Wrapping her legs in warmth was a pair of white thigh-high boots.
Seeing her figure entering, everyone inside the room quickly stops what they are doing. Turning in her direction, they bow forward in respect.
"Good morning, CEO Chen."
Chen Limei removes her sunglasses and smiles to her hard-working employees. She waves her hand in gesture for them to stand up and walks towards the rows of finished designs that are hanging on a z-rack.
"Is everything well prepared?"
A woman from the design team takes a step forward and gently smiles with a reply.
"CEO Chen, everything is well prepared. We are adding the finishing touches before having each design transfer to the fashion show."
Chen Limei nod her head in understanding. She takes a step forward and stretch her arm to one of the designs. Gently grabbing hold of a dress, she slightly pulls it out to look.
The sequences on the dress glisten in sparkle as the light in the room shines over it. It was majestic and breath taking like actual diamonds.
Her smile widens with proudness and gently put the dress back in place. She did not think these designs would turn out better than the blueprints she received.
No one will ever know that the designs were plagiarized from the information Ming Yue sent her.
She turns away from the rack of clothes and looks at her employees. Her entire aura gave the feeling of a true hardworking CEO and someone worth respecting.
"I want everything properly handle with extra care. Today is a very important day and we must win first place. Mistakes are not tolerated. If anyone does make a mistake, don't bother coming back to work."
"Yes, CEO Chen."
Everyone slightly bends forward at the same time and answers her in understanding. No one dares to make a mistake. From what they can recall, the last person who made a mistake was stripped from all eligibility to work in the fashion industry, let alone even find an ordinary job.
Chen Limei turns away and walks out of the room. She does not need someone who will bring mistakes to An Qing. Her dream have yet to start, so how can she let An Qing fall.
Stepping out of the room, she pause in her steps and signal with a finger to her assistant behind her.
"How are things over there?"
A woman wearing a black dress suit takes a step forward. Her head slightly lower with no intentions of looking at Chen Limei.
"In response to CEO Chen, it appears that side is not looking so good. Miss Ming also informed that she does not know who the opening model is. However, from observations, it appears to be someone new to the modeling industry."
Hearing this, Chen Limei furrow her brows. If Ming Yue does not know who the model is, then there's no way she will too. However, that also means that the model is no one important.
Then again, that still doesn't change anything. Han Yue Ling is a well-known model, even if she has retired from the modeling world, she can still be requested to participate in the event without a contract.
Thinking this, she looks ahead and gesture to her assistant.
"Contact Ning Mei. Tell her to wear the dress I sent and to look her best when arriving at the event's opening entrance."
"Yes, CEO Chen."
Chen Limei place her sunglasses back on and head to her office. There's still a few hours until the big event, but she still needs to get her makeup and hair done.
Entering her office, she sits down behind her desk. Looking down at the only folder on top of her desk, she picks it up and flips through the pages.
This folder contains the information Ming Yue sent about De L'amour. As the secretary there, she knows the ins and outs of things happening.
However, from each report reported, there's no confirmation on who the actual designer of De L'amour is.
Like her, who was put in the CEO seat of An Qing, Han Yue Ling who left the modeling industry was put in De L'amour's CEO seat.
It's normal that there is someone pulling the strings in the dark, but who is it?
Quickly reaching a dead end, Chen Limei close the folder and toss it back on her desk. Her eyes glares at the closed folder as if killing it with laser beam.
Whoever is pulling the strings, she will get to the bottom of it later. However, she will do whatever it takes to win first place at tonight's event. She will not let a puny De L'amour continue to be the brand that carries An Qing to the top. Her goal is to make An Qing its own brand and ruin De L'amour.
While An Qing turn into their own mess in preparations for the fashion show, De L'amour was no different. However, instead of having all the employees come in for work, Yue Ling only requested that the ones partaking in the event to come to work.
As the commotion inside the design room continue, Ming Yue stood outside the tightly shut door. She leans against the door to listen to anything important.
"Oh my God! Where is the hat for this design?"
"Where are the shoes for these two designs?"
"Jewelry! I need the jewelries! Hurry!"
"Oh no, this dress has a stain! What are we going to do?!"
Hearing the voices yelling in panic from inside and the sound of chaotic footsteps all over the place, Ming Yue's eyes lit up brightly. She moves away from the door and quietly runs to a hidden corner to send a report to Chen Limei.
