“Rosie’s part of this research is the technology. The medicinal materials given by Lancer Corporation were just for this batch. If you aren’t happy with the division of profit, it doesn’t matter. We can divide the profit for this batch of drugs produced using your materials by the percentage you’re satisfied with. However, the research institute also has the right to only sign the contract of this batch of drugs with you.”Then, Byron continued slowly, “This means that after this batch of drugs is sold, Rosie can take the technology to seek cooperation with other suppliers of medicinal materials. What about Lancer Corporation? Where else can you find an institute that can make it?”He was implying the status of the research institute was higher than Lancer Corporation in this project.Rosalie did not need Lancer Corporation.Instead, Lancer Corporation needed Rosalie to get the drug produced.The party leading the project should be the research institute instead of Lancer Corporat
Rosalie subconsciously looked at Byron beside her.Byron nodded.With his approval, Rosalie felt more relaxed and announced the preliminary results they had just discussed.“In my opinion, in this cooperation, Lancer Corporation provided us with the medicinal materials and the subsequent sales channels. However, in terms of technology, it was the research institute that made the biggest contribution. It can be said that the research institute mastered the core technology of new drugs. Based on this and our previous cooperation experience with other companies, the research institute wants to take the majority of the profit distribution this time.”Although Rosalie, who was in charge of the research institute, did not know much about this aspect, she expressed her stand confidently.Byron listened as he looked at Rosalie, who spoke seriously. He subconsciously revealed his appreciation for her.Xander could not believe his ears and said, “Sorry, I didn’t get what you said. Miss Jac
Since Byron was going to face Xander with her tomorrow, he did not ask further and went to bed early with Rosalie in his arms.At first, Rosalie thought it was a little inappropriate. Then, when she considered what they had already done last night, there was nothing left to hide. She obediently lay in his arms and fell asleep.The next morning, the two of them woke up early, and Byron personally drove her to the research institute.The two checked the details of the contract in Rosalie's office, waiting for Xander's arrival.With Byron's guidance, Rosalie became more certain about the details of this partnership.At nine o'clock in the morning, Xander appeared at Rosalie's office on the dot.He saw Rosalie sitting on the single sofa at the side, while Byron lounged on the couch in the middle, discussing something with his head down.Although they were not on the same sofa, their gestures were intimate.For a moment, Xander's eyes darkened at the presence of the other man."You
Suddenly, Rosalie’s heart was moved by his gaze.Without Melody, dinner was filled with warmth.For the first time, Byron didn't have to leave in a hurry after dinner. The little ones could stay with their parents until late at night.The three little ones had a great time.However, Rosalie’s mind was preoccupied while Byron still had some business to deal with. They only managed to spend a short time with the little ones before sending them to bed.The two went into the study room and the bedroom respectively.It was so natural as if they had lived together for a long time.Rosalie came out of the bathroom. The bedroom was still empty, and Byron had not come back yet.She checked the time. It was already late.Rosalie wanted to drop in to remind him to rest early.As soon as she walked to the door, the mobile phone on the bedside table suddenly rang.Rosalie had to turn back, pick up the phone, and took a look.It was Xander.Rosalie stared at the caller ID, kept thinking
Byron raised his eyebrows slightly.Mere seconds of Rosalie's silence were enough for him to catch something wrong with the situation. This little woman was hiding something from him.Following her answer, Byron asked calmly, "Why didn’t he want to negotiate today? Isn’t it better to decide on profits as soon as possible?"Rosalie's eyes drooped slightly. "He drank some wine and didn’t feel right to talk about business."‘Drank wine?’Byron's eyes narrowed slightly. "A lot of businesses are negotiated over wine. As the heir of the Lancer family, I’m sure Xander must have negotiated many deals over wine. If he refuses you, there must be some other reasons."Rosalie's eyes flickered. It was hard to talk about what happened just now.‘I can't tell him the negotiation failed because I rejected Xander’s confession.’Although she did not feel the same about Xander, she felt confessions are a private matter, especially for the one who confessed."Maybe he felt today is a time for cel
Her firm refusal cast a fleeting coldness across Xander's eyes, which he quickly brushed off."Rosalie, I mean it. We can maximize each other’s potential if we get together! Don't you want to go further in your medical career?"Xander spoke sincerely, looking at her with anticipation.Rosalie was frightened by the wild ambition in his words. "I want to go further, but not this way! Xander, you’re drunk, let's stop here today."Then, Rosalie got up and wanted to leave.Suddenly, Xander smiled wryly behind her. "I knew that you’d reject me, but I didn't expect that you wouldn’t even give me any hope. Is it so difficult for you to accept me? I don't know, how is Byron Lawrence better than me?"Rosalie blinked her eyes, trying to suppress the simmering panic in her heart. Her response was quiet. "It has nothing to do with Byron. I just don't feel the same for you. However, thank you, Young Master Xander, for not being as vile as Yves Graham."With that said, Rosalie strode out of th
Rosalie frowned slightly.In the past, when the two of them got along, they would talk about work or medical matters.Now that Rosalie noticed Xander's strange behavior, she was even more unwilling to talk to him about anything else."Then let's briefly confirm the terms first and draw up the contract another day."Out of politeness, she still had a cordial smile on her face.Xander had too much to drink. When he heard this, he slammed the table in dissatisfaction. "Is this the only thing we can talk about?"Rosalie stopped and met his gaze. She became more cautious. "We are partners, shouldn't we talk about work?"Xander stared at her, his eyes ablaze. "Miss Jacobs, can we only be work partners in your heart?"He was on a rant, but from his eyes, Rosalie could guess what he was going to say next. This was ridiculous.All along, she always treated Xander with professionalism. ‘How could he have such thoughts about me…’As she second-guessed herself, Xander ranted bitterly."
Byron almost immediately noticed the intense lament and self-reproach from this little woman's tone."Xander even proposed to give bonuses to my employees in his name. I have thought of all these, but I didn’t manage to tell them. After he announced the bonuses, I was too embarrassed to say it again. Will the employees think that Xander treats them better than I do? However, our research institute and Xander's are only in partnership..."No matter how Rosalie thought about it, she felt that something was wrong. She could only discuss it with Byron.Hearing her troubles, Byron heard her troubles, his eyes were only full of warmth. He spoke with compassion. " You’re not wrong, he has crossed the line in this matter. Your passion is in medicine, don’t force yourself with management. If you need anything, I’m here for you any time. I’ll be your tactical advisor."Rosalie instinctively relied on him. "Then what should I do now?"Almost immediately, Byron gave a solution because she was
