A Cue for Love chapter 1132

Chapter 1132 Guilty

Yandel had always been a diplomatic person who had a way with people, but judging by the awkward expression on his face, it was apparent that the man was having a hard time dealing with Helma, who had a prestigious status in Loang.

“Ms. Helma, that’s not the case, of course…” Yandel’s eyes darted from side to side before he said in a calm voice, “Ms. Nichols and Muse are not avoiding you on purpose. It’s just that they are both currently on vacation. If there’s anything you need, please feel free to let me know.”

After sizing Yandel up, Helma replied, “So what if you are the direct heir of the Moss family? Your family can barely be considered a prestigious one! Besides, I heard that the Moss family had openly cut off ties with you a few years ago…”

That was Yandel’s secret. Over the past few years, both the Moss family and Yandel had been trying their best to conceal the matter.

Back then, there was quite a commotion in Yaleview when the incident happened. However, it lasted less than two years before everyone stopped talking about it. As such, no one had brought up the relationship between Yandel and the Moss family during Yandel’s current trip to Yaleview, where he was helping Natalie with the expansion of Dream Corporation’s business.

No doubt, Helma’s words had hit a sore spot. Even though Yandel managed to keep his graceful demeanor and did not show any displeasure on his face, he was clenching his fists so tightly that the veins on his arms were already popping.

Meanwhile, Natalie was observing them quietly. As Yandel had his back to the woman, he did not notice Natalie’s presence.

However, it was not the same for Helma, who was facing Natalie and would have noticed her presence a while back. In fact, what Helma had said during the latter part of her conversation with Yandel was directed at Natalie.

There was bad blood between the two women because of Bastien.

As such, Natalie would have found it understandable for Helma to target her.

However, she would not tolerate the woman picking a fight with her subordinate.

Yandel took some time to compose himself, and just when he was about to speak, he felt a hand pressing on his right shoulder.

The man turned around suspiciously and realized that it was Natalie. “Boss… Why are you here?” he blurted out instinctively.

“My holiday just ended.” Natalie smiled faintly and said placidly, “Since Ms. Helma is here specifically to see me, how can I not entertain her personally? Get my secretary to make us some coffee. You may leave now to continue with your work.”

A slight crease appeared between Yandel’s brows when he heard that. However, when he saw the determined look in Natalie’s eyes, he swallowed his words and replied, “All right.”

After Yandel left, only Natalie and Helma remained in the office.

“I couldn’t tell that you are so protective of your subordinates…” Although Helma spoke in a casual tone, there was a hint of sarcasm in her voice.

“Ms. Helma, Yandel has been working for me for quite a while.” Natalie looked up at Helma and said in a straightforward manner, “He always had my back, and I will do the same for him. So, if there’s anything that you’re not happy with, please come to me directly. There’s no need to pick on him.”

Natalie spoke in a calm and graceful manner, but it was enough for anyone to take her seriously.

Helma let out a sigh and stated from the depths of her heart, “Natalie, it seems like I have underestimated you previously…”

Natalie was not only beautiful, but she was also smart and courageous. Helma realized that she had severely underestimated the woman by assuming that she was just an ordinary businesswoman!

Natalie took a sip of her coffee and said to Helma, “Ms. Helma, you would get the same answer from me no matter how many times you ask me about it. What happened at the banquet was not intentional. I am not interested in Prince Jonathan at all.”

Helma scoffed and started laughing. “It’s all in the past. Anyway, I’m not here today to ask you about that.”

“Then what are you…”

“I’m here to present you with a business opportunity.” An ambiguous smile crept up on Helma’s face before she continued, “Are you interested? Or are you going to reject me out of guilt?”
