Chapter 323: Misunderstood

He shook his head as he looked at the speculations of his fans. However, he did not immediately go on his own Instagram to clarify the matter.

He had to ask Franklin if he wanted to formally introduce Lauren to the public. After all, there would be a lot of media at his cocktail party.

There was an eight-hour time difference between the place where Franklin went on business trips and their home country. Quinn initially thought that Franklin would not reply to his message so quickly. However, out of his expectation, Franklin replied to his message as soon as he sent it.

Franklin did not have time to pay attention to what Quinn sent, so he called him directly.

“Why are you up so late? It’s almost 1:00 in the morning at your side.”

In the dark, Franklin pinched his eyebrows.

He only turned on a faint light by his side in the vast hotel suite.

The computer was on, and on the screen was a contract in a foreign language.

“Yeah, there’s still some work to be done. I have a meeting at seven in the morning, so I have to finish reading the contract.”

“You’re working too hard. You have to rest.”

It was not easy for Quinn to show concern for him, and Franklin instantly felt that his younger brother had grown up.

“Yeah, I got it. It’s just for this period of time. After the 50th anniversary is over, I can have a good rest.”

“That’s good, brother. When will you be back from your business trip?”

“I’m not sure, but I’ll definitely be back before the end of next week.”

“Oh, okay. Then you should go and rest.”

“Wait, what was that trending Instagram search you mentioned just now?”

Quinn knocked his head. He had completely forgotten about the important matter.

Quinn explained everything that had happened this morning to Franklin.

“Franklin, do you want to take this opportunity to introduce Lauren at my cocktail party?”

“How did she get caught on camera?”

Quinn sighed. “Netizens are too observant.”

He added, “However, it’s fine if we don’t clarify it. The rumors will definitely stop.”

Franklin was silent for a moment as if he was thinking about how to respond.

“Actually…it’s okay to introduce her today. The influence of the entertainment industry is growing, and the influence of public opinion is quite strong. It’s Lauren’s first appearance this time. If she can get everyone’s liking, then later on when she makes her appearance in our company. Perhaps she has already attracted quite a number of fans.”

Quinn, on the other hand, did not understand what was going on in Franklin’s mind.

“Franklin, are you sure? The people who attend the group’s celebration will definitely be those old fogies. They have always looked down on the entertainment industry.”

The quietness of the night helped Franklin to stay more focused. Franklin could hear the sound of the second hand on his watch rotating.

“No matter how old or stubborn a person is, they have to live in the modern world. They are outnumbered. Lauren can’t always live under our wings. Let’s do it this way. Keep an eye on the situation. I’ll contact the news agency and get them to favor Lauren.”

Quinn nodded. He had never been as good as Franklin when it came to these things. He could only trust him wholeheartedly.

“You guys are already at the studio? Where’s Lauren?” Franklin asked

“She is sleeping right now. She fell asleep right after she got into the car, just like a little pig,” Quinn replied.

Franklin turned the pen in his hand and thought to himself, ‘Lauren is sleeping pretty well.’

Both of them were in a cold war, but Lauren did not seem to be affected. Franklin was the only one that was angry.

“Sure, if there’s anything, just call me. I won’t mute my phone tonight,” Franklin instructed.

“Got it, bro. Have a good rest.”

Then, Quinn hung up the phone. After hanging up, he looked up and saw a huge face.

He was forced to squeeze to the side in the cramped car.

“Lauren, what are you doing? Why didn’t you say anything when you woke up? Who are you trying to scare with that chubby face of yours?!”

Lauren did not mind Quinn calling her ‘chubby’ this time.

She blinked her eyes and looked at the phone in Quinn’s hand. Then, she looked at Quinn.

“Who were you talking to just now?”

“I was talking to Franklin. What’s wrong?”

Quinn put the phone back into his windbreaker’s pocket.

“What did you say to Franklin?”

“It’s none of your business. You’re such a nosy little thing.”

“Tell me, Quinn.”

It was rare for Lauren not to start a fight with Quinn. Instead, she began to act coquettishly.

Quinn always had a soft spot for people who acted coquettishly to him. This seemed to be a characteristic of the Torres family.

If you were arrogant, then Quinn would be more arrogant than you.

However, if you started crying, then Quinn would give in to whatever you requested.

“Do you really want to know?”

“Yes, yes.” Lauren’s eyes sparkled.

“I didn’t say anything. Did you know that the netizens have already mistaken you as my girlfriend?”
