When His Eyes Opened

Chapter 39

Chapter 39 “Voc it's been hard” Avery answered. “I don’t think it's plausible to introduce a self-driving program to the market right now. Even the most advanced program would not be able to beat the human mind. If I'm not confident in the program, why would the investors be?” “Don't be so pessimistic about it. Many people invest in things that they find creative, not just because of practicality. There's a party tonight. Everyone there is an heir of a rich family. Do you want to come with m e? You never know, you might just bump into someone who's interested in investing!” “Forget it!" Avery scoffed. “I won’t get anywhere with a bunch of rich brats. It's the first generation, self made bigshots that I need.” ‘They'll be there, too! You might as well try your luck,” Tammy said as she tried to convince Avery. “I don't want to go either, but my dad's making me. He set up a blind date for me. Just come and give me some moral support, okay?" “Fine,” Avery said as she gave in. At 7 p.m. that evening, Tammy drove Avery to a five-star hotel in the city. C “When we get in let's split up. That'll make it easier for you to fish for investors,” said Tammy. Avery nodded and said, “I didn’t forget that you're here for a blind date. I won't be a third wheel.” Tammy chuckled, then said, “Keep your eyes on your phone. I'll text you when I can't take it anymore.” “Okay,” Avery responded. The two women walked into the hotel and entered the ballroom from two separate doorways. Avery picked up a glass of juice, then sat herself down in a corner of the room. She wanted to take a peek at Tammy’s blind date. The Lynch family was in the department store business. They were nota listed company, but they were popular and well-known in the country. Avery was sure that the person Tammy's family set her up with would be from a similar background, but she was curious about his looks, age, and personality. Soon after, a familiar, handsome face caught Avery's eye. Why did Tammy's date look so familiar? That man... Was that Jun Hertz?! She had a meeting with him at Tate Industries before. It was a short discussion that did not end too pleasantly. Avery placed her glass down and sent Tammy a text. Avery: (What's your date’s name? He looks familiar.) Tammy was in the middle of a conversation with Jun when her phone screen lit up. She saw Avery's text, then sent a reply. Tammy: (Jun Hertz. Do you know him?) Avery: (I do!!!) Tammy: What's with that reaction? Did something happen between you? I can back off! Avery: INo! I don’t know him that well, but I know he’s got about two hundred million dollars in his account! Tammy: (Holy sh*t! Is he that rich? No way! He just graduated from college not too long ago. How could he have that much money?) Avery: ... He plans on buying out my dad's company.] Tammy: (What?! I’m going to need a second to process this.] Avery: (Don’t tell him we know each other! There's something fishy about this guy, but I haven't been able to find out much about him.) Tammy: [Leave it to me! I'll figure out what's going on!) Since Tammy was focused on her phone, Jun shifted his gaze and looked around the banquet hall. That was when he noticed Avery sitting in a corner of the room. What was she doing there? That party was a singles event, but Avery had a husband. Jun grinned, then pulled out his phone and sent Elliot a text. Jun: (Hey, Elliot. Your wife’s at a singles party in the Celestial Hall at Regency Hotel. There are a few guys with their eyes on her... Did you let her out to play?]
