The conversation flowed between Eugene and Cameron as they exchanged ideas, and both parties seemed to understand each other’s intentions. Melanie remained silent until Cameron suddenly noticed the file booklet she was holding onto.
He exclaimed, “Miss Smith, have you seen Blue Inc’s series before?”
in her hands was Blue Inc’s art catalog, and the first–page cover featured a niche series from a few years ago. With a palpable interest, Cameron continued, “This series isn’t very popular. It’s not classified as an antique either. We were just inspired by a small studio under us at the time. It never gained much popularity. How did you know about it, Miss Smith?”
At the sudden question, Melanie decided to pull out the booklet and place it on the table. After a pause, she said, “I looked into Blue Inc before this. I particularly like this series of wooden carvings with themes around humans and nature as it’s quite dynamic.
“Unfortunately, I found out about it a bit late, and it’s now difficult to find a complete set in the market.” Melanie’s tone was sincere as she spoke. “I brought this catalog today to ask if it’s still possible for me to purchase the series.”
Her words were eloquent, but the truth was she had learned about this series from Xander. When they were discussing the exhibition layout for Prime City, Melanie overheard Oliver mentioning Blue Inc’s theme.
Finding it interesting, Melanie bought the catalog on their official website after returning to Jepton. She did not expect LeapCo to start a collaboration with them.
Melanie was a visage of composure at this moment, both truth and falsehood well hidden amidst her features.
Cameron’s interest shifted toward her, and he asked Melanie several questions. Fortunately, Melanie had studied the catalog beforehand carefully, so the answers came smoothly.

In the end, Cameron still took a diplomatic stance. Melanie knew this was because they were currently in the position to choose,
When they were leaving, Cameron escorted them to the door and said courteously, “I look forward to meeting you again next time, Mr. Scott.”
Cameron then turned to Melanie and said, “Regarding the wooden carvings you inquired about, Miss Smith, it’s quite a challenge to locate them now due to their low production and popularity. If you wish, however, I can inquire again.”
Melanie could not say much to that. She just smiled and thanked him. “Thank you, Mr. Crane. If you don’t mind, could we exchange contacts? I like Blue Inc’s cultural and creative items. I would appreciate it if I could get firsthand information.”
Her words were cleverly chosen and in praise of the company, which naturally gained her Cameron’s agreement. They exchanged contact information, and it was not until they reached

the parking lot that Melanie’s smile gradually faded.
Looking at the Maybach parked next to her, she went up to her car expressionlessly and was about to open the car door when Lee suddenly approached her. He called out somewhat
hesitantly, “Melanie, are you heading back to the office now?”
It was not yet time for her to leave for the day, so Melanie responded softly, “Hmm?”
you drive Mr. Scott’s car back? I have some urgent matters to attend to and need to meet a client,” Lee requested, looking a bit embarrassed.
Melanie glanced at the all–black Maybach, seemingly understated but quite ostentatious. She looked down slightly and replied indifferently, “Mr. Scott is better at driving than I am.”
Lee seemed a bit stunned at her refusal and instinctively looked at the Maybach. “But he mentioned something about his wrist feeling off.”
