Chapter 83 Twice The Price
Christina did not pay any attention to the host’s questions or Francis responses in the subsequent
After finally making it to the end of the interview, shmerely stood aside and watched when the group photo was taken
She had absolutely no desire to be in the same picture as Francis
When it was over, she dragged Bailey away, thinking that as long as she ignored Francis, he would lose interest and forget what had happened between them
They returned to the hotel and had just finished taking their showers when the hotel staff came knocking on the door
A serving cart full of delicacies appeared before themas soon as they opened the door, “Good evening. this is the hotel’s specialty dinner”
Christina was shocked and asked. “Have you made a mistake! We didn’t order dinner service” Such a sumptuous meal would cost a few thousand at the very leatt
The hotel staff smiled professionally. “This is on the house. Please enjoy yourselves”
Bailey stuck her head out and remarked, “Such a good treatment. Bring it in quickly.”
The two of them watched as the hotel staff placed the food on the table and uncorked a fine bottle of red wine, complimenting Henry in their minds for his extreme kindness to them.
They had been hungry all day and ate the delicious food in front of them without hesitation.
At the same time, in the room opposite theirs, Sebastian set the documents to be addressed on the table and reported, “Mr. Hadley, the hotel staff has sent the dinner to Mrs. Hadley’s room.”
Nathaniel lowered his head to study the documents and let out a hum of acknowledgment.
“If there’s nothing else, I won’t bother you any longer Sebastian left the room after giving him a curt
The lights in the room cast a halo around Nathaniel’s dark, lustrous hair. He lowered his head and read the documents, only getting up after a long while.
He went to the door and looked at the opposite room from the peephole.
Even though there was only a corridor that separated them, he felt for the first time that those few meters were longer than vast rivers like Cayburn River.
I wonder what Christina is doing for her to come to Hallsbey without telling me. What is her purpose?
The breeze was cooler that morning compared to the previous day.
Christina wore a pale-yellow knitted outerwear with a casual checkered dress, appearing more youthful with her hair down.
Meanwhile, Bailey changed into a long dress. She, who never wore makeup, abruptly spent half an

hour applying it.
When they arrived at the recording studio, Henry met them in the conference room and brought out a
“The other party is willing to pay twice the previous price for the entire copyright.”
The entire copyright meant that once the song was recorded, the other party would fully own it. They could not perform it for profit in any public setting or online platform.
In other words, it was no longer their music after they had recorded it.
Bailey was a little hesitant and looked at Christina. “What do you think?”
Frankly, they would not appear on camera even if they sang it, and the other party would not promote them either, so it was no different from buying out the entire copyright.
Christina mulled over it for a while before responding. “We don’t plan to appear on camera either, so it doesn’t matter much.”
After discussing it among themselves, they agreed to the other party’s request in full.
When he saw that they had agreed, Henry was likewise overjoyed. As the price of the deal was high, so was his profit.
The recording started smoothly. Perhaps it was because Christina liked the lyrics of this song very much, so she sang it with more emotion.
For three consecutive days, the two went straight back to the hotel after the recordings.
In the opposite room, Sebastian sorted out the documents before reporting, “For the past few days, Mrs. Hadley has been recording in a dubbing studio, returning immediately to the hotel after each session. Other than that, she didn’t go anywhere else
After hearing the report, Nathaniel was quite satisfied.
The only thing he could not figure out was why Christina did not want to inform him when she was just there for a recording. Is it because I went on a business trip overseas without telling her?
“Where is she recording? Send me the address.”
Nathaniel stood up from the couch, took his car keys, and left the room.
Soon, he received the address from Sebastian.
Meanwhile, Christina and Bailey’s task in the studio was considered complete after they sang the final
Bailey stretched her stiff muscles before patting Henry on the shoulder. “We’ll be heading back tomorrow. Thank you for the feasts these past few days!”
Henry stared at her in confusion. “What feast? Speaking of which, let me treat you two to a meal before you leave, okay?”
Bailey was slightly shocked and exchanged glances with Christina.

“The hotel has been providing us with scrumptious meals for the past few days, saying that it was arranged by the person who booked the room. Isn’t it you?” Christina gazed at Henry curiously.
Henry shook his head. “I did book the room, but I didn’t know about the arrangement of any meal.
You must be mistaken.”
The two girls shrugged. But the hotel staff who brought us our meals for the past few days did say that they were free of charge. Could it be that the hotel made a mistake?
They did not dwell on it too long, and Bailey’s thoughts moved on to more important matters. “Christina, will you join me later to cheer on Francis new drama?”
Christina hurriedly shook her head. “No, thanks. I don’t like him. Go on your own.” Just hearing his name now sent a chill down her spine.
I wonder if he had already deleted that photo.
Bailey checked the time and seemed a little anxious. The fan meeting is about to begin. Don’t wait for me tonight. See you at the airport tomorrow.” After saying that, she left in a hurry.
Christina considered it a blessing not to be dragged along to that event. She left the recording studio, after packing up her things.
Despite having been in Jadeborough for several days, she had not had a good look at the city.
Before leaving, she decided to visit some popular attractions to make some memories.
Christina tasted all kinds of snacks and took many photos while walking through the brightly lit, bustling food streets, unaware of a pair of eyes secretly watching her amid the crowd.
The figure was hiding in an obscure spot, somewhere she could not see.
It was nearly ten at night before she headed back to the hotel.
There were quite a lot of people at this time. Christina stood on the edge of the zebra crossing at the traffic lights, her gaze on the pedestrian signal light at the opposite end.
The bright red light lit up, and a car drove past in front of her.
A silhouette approached her slender figure from behind, and when no one was looking, stretched out a hand and shoved her pink bag.
With that burst of brute force from behind, Christina’s body was like a pebble being thrown into the air as she lost balance and tilted toward the front.
eyes widened, and her dark pupils dilated rapidly. The passing cars in front of her were like Grim Reapers coming for her. There was no possibility of her surviving if she bumped into one.
It was as if the surrounding people had seen the figure lunge out as they dared not move forward even if they wished to help her.
Just then, a tall and austere figure pushed his way through the crowd and shot out like a flying arrow.
The man’s gaze was very firm. Hence, even the most perilous places would not
