The other party’s flight had touched down at 10 AM in the morning.
It was already 10:30 AM. If it were someone else who had come all this way for a collaboration, but were left waiting in the airport for half an hour, they would be furious as well, let alone Mr. Lombardi who greatly valued punctuality.
“What did you say? It was a 10 AM flight?” Nian Xiaomu’s eyes shrank and her expression sharpened when she heard what Wang Miaomiao had said.
Wang Miaomiao had clearly mentioned that it was an 11 AM flight when she informed Nian Xiaomu the other time!
Nian Xiaomu had totally followed the time that Wang Miaomiao mentioned and led the reception team to the airport at the stated time. However, it was only now that Nian Xiaomu realized that the flight Mr. Lombardi and his team were on had arrived exactly one hour in advance.
They definitely would not be able to receive them after arriving at this time!
Just when Nian Xiaomu was about to say something, an employee from the reception team received a call.
Even though the call was not on speaker phone mode, the speaker phone function was not needed because everyone present could hear the furious voice of the person on the other end of the call.
“What’s wrong with you guys? How did you guys mess up such a simple job of receiving the guest?”
“All of you only arrived at 10:30 AM when the flight had already landed at 10 AM. Do you need me to give all of you a long holiday so you can go home and have a good sleep before coming over to receive the guest? Nian Xiaomu, what have you been doing? You can’t even handle such a simple task!”
“Let me tell you guys thisI just received a call from Mr. Lombardi. His team has rejected the collaboration with our company, and they will head back to Italy tomorrow. If this project fails, all of you better prepare a resignation letter before you guys come back to the office!”
Wen Yadai, who was on the other end of the call, hung up the call right after her extremely furious bellow.
She did not give them any chances to explain.
The employees from the reception team looked at each other in dismay. Then, all of them turned to look at Nian Xiaomu.
Nian Xiaomu was currently the person in charge for the project with Lombardi.
However, she had gotten the arrival time wrong and even implicated the rest of the team.
Nian Xiaomu knew that anything she said now would be useless.
Nian Xiaomu had not put up any guard against Wang Miaomiao back when Wang Miaomiao had notified her, let alone thought of recording what Wang Miaomiao had said.
Even if Nian Xiaomu explained to the other colleagues that she did not hear it wrongly and that Wang Miaomiao had indeed told her that the flight would arrive at 11 AM, nobody would believe her.
Instead, everyone would set their mind to thinking that she was trying to push the blame onto an interpreter because she wanted to shirk her responsibility.
The only thing she could do now was to salvage this collaboration first.
As long as Mr. Lombardi was willing to collaborate with them, she would have a chance to explain herself!
Twisting her head around, Nian Xiaomu looked at Wang Miaomiao, the interpreter, and inquired directly, “Which hotel did Mr. Lombardi and his team check in to?”
Wang Miaomiao had never expected that Nian Xiaomu would neither question her nor explain herself. Instead, the first thing that Nian Xiaomu thought about was to salvage the project.
After staring blankly for a few seconds, Wang Miaomiao finally lifted her hand and brushed away the few strands of hair at the side of her face, tucking them behind the back of her ear.
A sneer appeared at the corner of her mouth when she lifted up her head.
She spoke in a slow and graceful manner.
“It would be useless even if you knew where the hotel was located. Mr. Lombardi was very furious when he left; he had already mentioned that he would drop the collaboration, and he did not want to meet anyone from our company again.”
“Nothing is impossible. We will only know the results after we have given our best,” Nian Xiaomu interrupted her and stepped forward.
Her aura had changed entirely due to that strong and powerful attitude.
As Nian Xiaomu lifted up her head slowly, her razor-sharp gaze swept past Wang Miaomiao, and she spoke with a pause between every word, “You are the interpreter whom the company has sent to assist me. Your job is to listen to my instructions and carry out your tasks dutifully. I don’t need to your permission to make a decision!”
