Time passed before she knew it as Wendy began to busy herself with work.
It was only when the night lights lit up, the lamps under the office switched on, and the sound of colleagues walking out the corridor that Wendy realized it was time to clock off.
Wendy rubbed her sore neck exhaustedly. She was about to turn her computer off when she received a call from her father.
“Are you still at the office, Wendy?”
Dawson’s gentle voice put a smile on Wendy’s face. “Yeah. I’m about to clock out. Why, is there something wrong, Dad?”
Dawson laughed out loud. “It’s your birthday today. Why, are you so busy..? You forgot?”
Wendy felt her heart warm.
Indeed, all men were trash and could not be relied upon. The only man who could was one’s own father.
“Did you get me a gift, Dad?” Wendy asked happily.
“Haha. I was thinking I’d treat you to dinner today. Since it’s been a long time we’ve eaten together.”
Wendy felt slightly confused about Dawson’s suggestion.
‘Dad’s always been the one who cooked when we celebrated my birthday before.
‘So why’s it different this time?’
Still, Wendy did not think too much of it and agreed immediately.
“Sure. Where are we eating?”
Dawson replied, “Come to the North Bank. There’s a new restaurant with Fac cuisine that opened recently. I heard a few business friends say the food and view are great. I’ll wait for you here.”
“Is it the New Garden House? I heard of it too and they’ve made quite the reputation for themselves, but I never had to time to try.”
“Yup, right there. They have a balcony of the river view and it’s right above the bank of Southface River. It’s pretty nice that you get to see the bustling nightlife of South Bank and the river. I’ll be waiting for you here.”
“I’ll be right there!”
After ending the call, Dawson then called Jasper from Schuler Group’s office happily.
“You little brat. I can’t believe you asked me to cooperate with you and prank my own daughter,” Dawson chided smilingly.
“Sigh. The lengths I go to make your daughter happy,” Jasper joked with a laugh.
“Alright. I’ve already done my part so what’s next will be up to you,” Dawson replied.
Jasper asked, “Do you want to eat with us, Uncle Schuler?”
Dawson replied with a huff, “At least be sincere if you’re going to treat me to dinner. An old man like me will only disturb you two, you two have fun.”
“Haha, alright. I’ll bring Wendy home for dinner tomorrow,” Jasper said with a smile.
Dawson chuckled and ended the call.
Wendy took her purse and left the office happily.
Even if the man had forgotten her birthday, Wendy still decided to forgive him for now and only teach him a lesson when he returned.
Wendy drove over the Southface River Bridge and arrived at the North Bank In less than twenty minutes, Wendy had already arrived at the New Garden House that was lately hugely popular in Nauritus City.
Since JW Real Estate had successfully developed the South Bank of Southface River, the North Bank’s development had also begun.
However, due to the topography of the land, there was no way the North Bank could become another commercial district. Not to mention that there was already a South Bank that fulfilled the developmental needs of Nauritus City for the next few decades, the North Bank was more suited for the service sector of the economy like food, beverages, and entertainment
Thus came the appearance of New Garden House.
However, New Garden House seemed desolate today when it was supposed to be bustling with business. There were no cars in the parking lot at all and Wendy was confused by what she saw.
“Isn’t business here doing great? Why isn’t there anyone at all?”
Wendy frowned and walked into New Garden House puzzled.
She had just walked into the vintage dining hall when she saw two neat rows of professionally dressed servers, in white suits, black pants, and white gloves, greet Wendy courteously.
“Welcome, Miss Schuler.”
