The Three Little Guardian Angels Chapter 1247

chapter 1247

“It turns out to be Mr. Clifford. I’ve heard so much about you.” Anthony raised his glass and proposed a toast.

Jackie raised his glass and said with a smile, “ I’ve also heard a lot about you, Mr. Topaz.

Especially about your overseas collaboration in the Persian Gulf project.”

Anthony was astounded and smiled. “The success of the Persian Gulf project is the joint effort between the other investors and me.

They’re the ones who should get most of the credits when compared to me.”

Jackie slowly finished the red wine. “Mr. Topaz, you’re being too modest.”

“By the way, do you know my daughter?” Anthony took a glance at Naomi. He had seen Jackie talking to his daughter a few seconds ago.

Jackie paused for a second. “Is this young lady your daughter?”

He responded, “Yes, my daughter rarely attends such occasions, so I’ve been bringing her along to get her to adapt to them recently.”

“I see.” Jackie explained calmly, “We just met at the dinner banquet the other day.”

Listening to the conversation between her father and Jackie, Naomi lowered her gaze and did not utter a single word from beginning to end. She had always been a sensitive lady and could sense that her father wanted her to get in touch with all these wealthy men and women. As for his intention…

She pursed her lips tightly.

‘Dad still can’t let go of his prejudice against Francisco.’

Nolan sipped his wine slowly as he glanced at this scene thoughtfully.

Maisie sent him a text message at this moment, asking him not to drink too much wine and that she had prepared supper and was waiting for him to go home. The corners of his lips rose slightly.

‘My wife is waiting for me at home, and I really wish to go home immediately. These events are so annoying.’

“Mr. Goldmann.” Naomi walked up to him and asked cautiously, “Can I occupy a few minutes of your time?”

Nolan and Naomi came out to the corridor. Knowing that she had a favor to ask, Nolan immediately opened his mouth. “Just give it to me, Ms. Topaz.”

Naomi lowered her head. “I know that you’re quite close to my father, so I want to ask you to help persuade my father and get him to let go of his prejudice against Francisco…”

Nolan squinted slightly. He had probably guessed Anthony’s purpose for bringing his daughter to the banquet tonight. “What makes you think I can convince Mr. Topaz?”

“I… I think my father will accept your opinion to a certain extent.” She bit her lip. No matter how she communicated with her father, trying to explain the whole thing to him, her father obviously would not listen to her.

She did not want to ruin her relationship with her father, nor did she want to leave Francisco.

“Mr. Topaz is definitely a good father.” Nolan frowned. After having children, he could somewhat understand the feeling of being a father. “Ms. Topaz, you shouldn’t rely on others if you want to convince your father.”

Naomi was stunned for a moment.

Nolan’s expression was unchanged. “If you want your father to let go of his prejudice against Francisco, the problem can’t be solved by relying on someone else’s advice. The problem has to be solved by the two of you and only the two of you.”

Naomi pursed her lips and clenched her hands tightly. Before going back into the room, Nolan said, “Perhaps, this is the test that’s sitting right in between the two of you.”

She froze in place.

Returning to the private room, Anthony summoned Naomi with a smile. “Nelly, Mr. Clifford mentioned about you just now, saying that you played the piano well the last time you two met, so why not go up the stage and have another go with Mr. Clifford?”

Naomi’s gaze landed on the piano that was placed on the stage, and Jackie had already sat right next to it.

Anthony pushed her over. “Go and give it a try.”

Jackie seemed to be waiting for her, and when he saw Naomi coming onto the stage, he grinned. “Ms. Topaz, all you need to do is assist me from the side.”

Naomi nodded. She sat down next to Jackie, and they played Pachelbel’s Canon in D major with four hands. Everyone present looked at their collaboration and praised them.

“These two kids seem to be a good match.”
