Chapter 385 Spotted Crayson Acting Suspiciously
“That’s so sneaky of you, Mr. Ludwig! You’re not arranging for her to be my assistant, are you? You’re just trying to get me to mentor her.” Mia sulked and rolled her eyes.
“Veronica was made for this industry. She might have joined a little late, but based on her performance during the previous jewelry showcase event, it’s clear that she’s a natural. She’s a diamond in the rough that just needs some polishing. You’re her senior in this field, so I hope that you will guide her and get along with her.”
Having said that, Sean closed his laptop and got up. “I have something to attend to, so I’m heading out now.”
He moved toward the door while speaking, so he neglected to see the flash of intense jealousy in Mia’s eyes.

“I will. Leave it to me, Mr. Ludwig.”
Mia nodded and agreed, but her eyes were shooting daggers.
For some reason, she felt threatened, and it made her a little antsy.
Mia left the conference room and headed straight for Veronica’s desk. She rapped on the desk to get Veronica’s attention.
Veronica looked up from her magazine and asked, “Yes, Miss Stuart?”
She did not plan on staying long in this modeling agency, but she was still going to do a good job and fulfill all tasks required of her.
This included getting along with her colleagues.
“Mr. Ludwig said that he hasn’t found me an assistant yet, so you’re going to be my assistant for now. You’ll need to come with me to Castron tomorrow,” Mia commanded loftily.
Veronica was not keen on following Mia around, but since it was Sean who made the arrangements, she had to go along with it.
In any case, she was the newest rookie to join the agency.
“Since this is Mr. Ludwig’s orders, feel free to let me know what you need, Miss Stuart,” Veronica said with a confident smile.
“Uh huh. I was in a rush this morning, so I haven’t eaten yet. Go get me the famous meat ravioli on Pines Street, a bowl of pumpkin soup from Sweetie’s Diner on Westcross Street, and a slice of bacon and cheese quiche from Madam Leta’s Bakery on Crimson Lane. Oh, and help me grab my parcel from the mailroom in the back.”
Mia swiftly barked out a list of demands.
Rania felt like she had gone too far, so she piped up, “Miss Stuart, those places are all so far away. Veronica would have to travel across half the city just to get everything. Isn’t that a bit much?”

He was very photogenic and would light up under the camera with just a touch of makeup.
“I’ve been in the industry for two or three years now, so I’m considered fairly experienced by now. If I don’t make a name for myself in the next two years, I might have to go back home and take up farming for a living.” Wade chortled.
He was very easy to get along with as he gave the impression of being a cheerful younger brother.
“What do you mean? You’re still young and you have a bright future ahead of you,” Veronica chuckled and said reassuringly.
As they continued chatting, she glanced out the window for a moment.
It was only a cursory glance, and she withdrew her gaze to sip her coffee.
All of a sudden, her eyes widened and she whipped her head back up to look out the window.
“Master Crayson?” Veronica’s heart missed a beat.
“What did you say?” Wade had not heard Veronica clearly.
Veronica turned to Wade and said in a rush, “Wade, I have something urgent to attend to, so could you please help me get breakfast for Mia? I’ll treat you to a meal sometime. Please, and thank you.”
She leaped to her feet and scampered out of the cafe.
Once she got onto the street, she ran in the direction where she had seen Crayson. Once she spotted his silhouette in the distance, she was doubly sure that it was him.
Why would he be here?
Veronica was at a loss.
To prevent Crayson from sensing that he was being followed, she stopped at a men’s clothing store and swiftly picked out a men’s jacket, scarf and cap. After making the payment, she quickly changed into her new outfit and put her other clothes away.
She had managed to do it all in just two minutes.
After putting on a face mask, she adjusted her cap and left the store.
Veronica wore a black leather jacket and a cap pulled low enough to hide half of her face. She stuffed her hands into her jacket pockets and sped after Crayson once more.
She wanted to see who Crayson had come to meet.
Now, she found it even more plausible that the man she had seen at Mudwood Street was Crayson.
