A Life Debt Repaid novel (John and Cordy) novel Chapter 9

After a while, Randy told John it was the time for the meeting, and John left his office.

Kyle—who had been waiting in the guest room—watched as all the executives walked past from behind the glass wall.

“Is that Mr. Levine?” Kyle asked.

Debbie the secretary glanced at the people outside, and quickly said, “Yes, Mr. Levine is on his way to a board meeting.”

Kyle lowered his teacup and studied the people outside, and Randy just happened to turn around.

Kyle quickly smiled and nodded in greeting at Randy.

Although Randy was frowning, he nodded politely and followed John into the elevator.

Randy certainly did not know that Kyle could not see John from his perspective, only that everyone else was walking behind Randy.

Kyle returned to his seat in turn to wait for ‘John’.

Levine Ventures would soon be establishing the biggest commerce guild in the world in North City, with a building to be completed soon. Since Jessop Corp’s main business was high fashion and they were looking to get involved in electronic commerce, they would get a good spot soon if they built a partnership with Levine Ventures early on.

However, John spent the entire morning at the board meeting.

When Kyle asked at noon, he was told that John had left for lunch with a partner and would return in the afternoon.

When he asked in the afternoon, he was told that John was at an on-site survey, but he probably would return.

When he asked in the evening, most employees in the building, including John, had already left work for the day!

Kyle’s face was left ashen.

He was the scion and the CEO of one of North City’s top corporations, and yet he ended up being stood up by John for an entire day. Even if Debbie kept apologizing, he felt that John was deliberately messing with him!

And he had no grudge with him!

Furious, he stormed out of Levine Ventures headquarters and got into his car, and that was when he received a call. “Noel.”

“Hey, Kyle! I heard you spent the whole day at Levine Ventures. You must’ve had a pleasant meeting with John Levine, right?” Noel asked fawningly.

Kyle’s expression darkened as Noel continued. “I’m going to have dinner with Mandy. Would you like to join us, or are you eating with Mr. Levine?”

“I’m fine. You girls enjoy yourself.”

He certainly was not going to tell Noel he was not even allowed to meet John, and that he was not in the mood to hang out with them.

Still, Noel was sharp enough to notice. “What’s wrong? Are you in a bad mood?”

“No, I’m just a little tired. I’m thinking about going home soon to sleep.”

“Alright, have a good night.” Noel appeared to care enough. “By the way, what does Mr. Levine look like? Is he like one of those middle-aged men with dad bods?”

“No, but his looks are average,” Kyle critiqued.

“I guess.” Noel giggled. “Alright, I won’t keep you, Kyle. I’m arriving at the restaurant soon.”

Kyle, however, was left glowering after hanging up.

Cordy had already left him infuriated in the morning, and now John humiliated him.

He was shaking even as he tried to restrain his temper!

Over at North Garden, Cordy was planning to order takeout for the night when her phone started to ring.

It was the number from this morning—it was not hard to remember it when the number 8 was all over the screen.

Taking a deep breath, Cordy refreshed his memory, having planned how to reject the man’s invitation.


However, when Richard’s chipper voice exclaimed from the other end, Cordy’s words were left stuck in his throat.

At the same time, Richard continued excitedly, “I missed you so much, Mommy. Daddy and I are coming to pick you up for dinner. We’ll be there in ten!”

Cordy was speechless.

John was certainly cunning!
