Rise of the White Dragon – Chapter 58: Press Conference

Chapter 58: Press Conference

Maira took a shower and put on thin silk pajamas to sleep. Lying on the bed, she felt restless. Many things were happening, and there was still the apocalypse that had very little time left before it would happen.

Despite all this, she did not feel unmotivated, but rather she felt some kind of unknown confidence whenever she saw her son. It also made her proud, since before she was always very insecure about her son, who hardly took things seriously.

Maira rolled over in bed a few times, until finally, after an hour she fell asleep.


– Monday – March 8, 2010 –

Today was an important day for the Dimas family. Like Luan, his mother and sisters woke up early. Ingrid also prepared very well for that day. She had received many tips from Maira, and already knew Luan’s agenda. As Luan’s personal secretary, she needed to be very responsible and could not fail.

Ingrid showered, washing her body and hair, and wore cropped trousers with a braided waist, a beige linen blazer, a white button-down shirt underneath, and a pair of black high-heeled shoes, while her long, beautiful blond hair was loose, cascading down her back, halfway down her back.

All the clothing she was wearing was what Catharina bought for Ingrid at the Valentino store… before that mess happened.

To be honest, Ingrid had never felt so elegant before. She looked at herself in the mirror and believed that she looked much more mature and elegant wearing this outfit.

Glancing at the clock, Ingrid saw it was 6:10 am. She took a deep breath, walked towards the door, and opened it. Leaving, she looked up and a male figure was fixed in front of her. Luan was there: attentive eyes, clean and completely imposing appearance, a dark suit that fit him perfectly.

Just as Ingrid evaluated Luan, he did the same of her and said, “You look elegant in that outfit. Mm, you look very beautiful. I will be counting on your help going forward.”

Luan patted Ingrid on the head, making her blush furiously. Whether it was because of the words he said or because of the affectionate gesture he made when he patted her on the head, Ingrid didn’t know.

On the first floor of the mansion, his mother was waiting with Catharina and Cristina. Breakfast was served by Maira, and then they all brushed their teeth.

“Hurry, the limo is already waiting for us to take you to the company’s headquarters,” Maira said as soon as they had finished brushing their teeth.

Leaving the house, they got into the limo.

“Luan, remember that at the press conference you don’t have to say much and you won’t have any questions,” Maira said. “I’m going to announce you as the new CEO of Dimas Corporation’s headquarters, so you only need to say a few words.”

“I understand, mom,” Luan nodded, “I will not say anything unnecessary.”

“Good,” Maira smiled.

“Brother, aren’t you feeling nervous? I remember that whenever you had to stand in front of a lot of people, you were always nervous,” Catharina mentioned.

“I’m fine. I’m not the same as before,” Luan replied.

“Mhm, yes, I know that, but, well… do your best.” Catharina patted him on the shoulder and smiled softly.

Ingrid wanted to say a few words of support for him, but she was very agitated in her heart. It was her first job as a secretary and she would start as a personal secretary to Luan, who was the newest CEO of Dimas Corporation. There was no way she wouldn’t feel nervous and insecure. She took a deep breath and decided to do her best.

While they were chatting, the limo arrived at Dimas Corporation Headquarters. Everybody got out of the car.

Their arrival drew the attention of many journalists who were present at the scene. Most of them became curious to see Ingrid and Cristina together with the Dimas family.

Their entourage entered the Dimas Corporation headquarters building.

The secretary saw them and said, “Welcome, President Maira, CEO Luan Dimas, and Misses. Journalists, shareholders, and executives are waiting in the room to start the Press Conference.”

“Okay.” Maira gave a simple answer and led the way to the room for the Press Conference.

When they entered, everyone inside the room turned and looked in their direction. There were more reporters and press stations than expected. This showed the weight that the CEO of Dimas Corporation represented.

In the press room, there was a stage with a large table and five seats. Maira and Luan sat in the middle, and the three girls sat two on the left side and one on the right.

On the table were five microphones. Although it was not Maira’s intention to let Ingrid, Cristina, and Catharina speak, if necessary, she was prepared to have them answer questions as well.

“Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much for attending the conference for the new CEO of Dimas Corporation’s headquarters,” Maira said, “Currently, Dimas Corporation has 300,000 employees and manages several sectors. My son is still inexperienced, and this is very new for him, however, that does not mean that he is not capable. I am aware of his capabilities and I am very confident that he will do a good job helping Dimas Corporation reach new heights.”

From always speaking with such confidence and being seen as a businesswoman with one of the best visionary minds in the business, Maira’s brief speech was very persuasive. The audience burst into applause under the stage.

After that, it was time for the interview, and the reporters couldn’t wait another second…

Reporter 1: “Luan Dimas, are you confident in being able to be CEO of the Headquarters of Dimas Corporation, which is a giant in the job market in Brazil?”

Luan: “I am confident that I can do a good job and not affect it in a negative way.”

Reporter 2: “Mr. Luan Dimas, you are very young; why did you decide to become CEO now?”

Luan: “My mom has always worked hard, and I want to help her now that I know I can do it.”

The interview continued on for a while. Not only Luan, but Maira, Catharina, and even Cristina and Ingrid were interviewed.

Reporter 5: “Miss, can I know your name? Ingrid Anjos? Miss Ingrid, how do you know the Dimas family?

Ingrid: “I met Luan Dimas at a difficult time for me. He helped me and even hired me as his personal secretary. I will always be grateful to him and I want to thank Luan for his appreciation.”

Some had malicious thoughts, seeing how beautiful Ingrid was, but did not dare to expose their thoughts publicly.

The next question was about Cristina.

Reporter 1: “This young lady, would she be a relative in the care of Miss Maira Dimas?”

Maira was already waiting for that question.

Maira: “Her name is Cristina Dimas. A lot of things happened, and I adopted her. Now she is my daughter and sister to Luan Dimas and Catharina.”

Hearing this, Cristina was thrilled. This was a surprise for her since she did not expect her mother to announce publicly that she was her daughter. It made her eyes water, but she forced herself not to cry.

This caused a stir in the place. They did not expect that this girl would be lucky to be adopted by the Dimas family. In addition, she was adopted by Maira Dimas, a very capable person who made her name known from a young age and took Dimas Corporation to new heights.

Reporter 4: “Catharina Dimas, what do you think about this? What do you think about your mother having adopted Cristina?”

The reporter tried to be as careful as possible when asking this question, but it was possible to notice something more in that question, as if he wished for a disagreement to exist.

Catharina: “I am very happy. I love my little sister and I will always treat her well.”

Catharina’s response took everyone by surprise. They didn’t expect her to like this girl so much. And when Luan was asked, he replied, “She is my sister, and I will protect her from everyone who tries to hurt her.”

Because of the news of Cristina’s adoption, the focus of the interview changed a little. And hearing Luan give this answer, they did not know why, but they felt a strong chill run down their spines.

Luan’s response also sounded like a warning. It scared these reporters a little when they asked their questions. They also stopped asking about Cristina for fear of offending the newest CEO of Dimas Corporation Headquarters.

The questions continued for a few more minutes until it finally ended. When it was released and became news, it shocked many people across Brazil.

After all, Luan Dimas was only 18 years old. And even though he was the son of Maira Dimas, it was unthinkable that such a young man had become CEO of a corporation with 300,000 employees.
