Mission To Remarry Novel Chapter 161 – Roxanne smiled apologetically. “I’m sorry, but I’m not in the mood for that recently.” Although she rejected him pleasantly, the rich gentleman was slightly disappointed. However, he turned around and left without forcing his way through.
Finally, she had once again gotten the peace and quiet she longed for. Just as she was about to gather her emotions, she suddenly heard a familiar
voice calling out to her. “Roxanne? Is that you?” Hearing that, Roxanne raised her gaze in the direction of the voice.
She then saw a charming man in a grey tuxedo staring at her in bewilderment. As soon as their eyes met, Roxanne’s eyes lit up. In a surprised tone, she
uttered, “Larry? What a coincidence!” Larry Morrison was a senior she met abroad.
Internationally speaking, he was one of the elites of the younger generation. Back then, Larry had helped Roxanne a lot when she had just gone abroad.
Therefore, they shared a pretty good relationship.
When she returned to the country, she was too busy with matters concerning the research institute, so she never had a chance to reach out to him.
Upon seeing that he had not mistaken someone else for her, Larry put on a bright smile and went up to Roxanne. “It’s been a long time.”
Roxanne smiled and nodded. “Indeed. When did you come back to the country? Why didn’t you contact me?” Larry sized her up and said, “I’ve been back for a fortnight now. I did think of reaching out to you, but I was afraid that I might disturb you.
After not seeing you for so long, you seem to have lost weight. Have you been busy with work in Chanaea?” Roxanne simply smiled and answered, “You can say so.” Although she was busy with the research institute, her workload was nothing compared to when she was abroad.
I’m sure I’ve lost weight because of those three little ones at home. Sell, I shouldn’t reveal my personal matters to Larry.
Larry looked at her worriedly and said, “I know you’re a workaholic, but you ought to look after yourself. Don’t tire yourself out.”
Roxanne merely nodded in response. “By the way, why are you here? Are you already working with Queen Group despite only returning to the country recently?” Larry asked with a smile. Roxanne was stunned for a moment upon hearing that.
When she remembered who those guests at the banquet were, she smiled and shook her head. “I’ve only returned to the country recently, so how could I’ve done that?
I was invited because I just happened to have cured Old Mr. Queen’s illness. However, I guess it’s also right to say that I’m working with the Queen
family. They’re our research institute’s medicine supplier.” Larry was astonished. “
I’ve heard about how bad Old Mr. Queen’s condition was, and a lot of renowned doctors had failed to cure him. When I heard he
was cured, I wondered who the amazing doctor was! Who would’ve thought it was you?”
Roxanne pressed her lips into a smile. “I was just lucky. It just happens to fall into my area of specialty.” Larry arched a brow and said, “Stop being so humble, will you? I don’t know about the others, but I know your capabilities like the back of my hand.
owever, knowing that you’re the one who cured Old Mr. Queen, I’m still veryimpressed.” “You flatter me too much, Larry.” Roxanne laughed., The two of them chatted happily about Alfred’s illness and each other’s medical fields.
Nearby, Lucian saw a man approach Roxanne and left just moments earlier. His gaze darkened when he saw her talking happily with another man. He
was so displeased that everyone nearby could feel the icy aura he was exuding.
Naturally, Jonathan noticed what was going on, and he could tell why Lucian was displeased. “Lucian, would you like to go over there and see what’s
going on?” he asked.
