“Interpreter Wang?” Nian Xiaomu had gotten up and taken a few steps forward. She turned and raised an eyebrow at Wang Miaomiao who was still sitting in a daze at the table.
“…” Gritting her teeth, Wang Miaomiao reluctantly stood up.
Then, she followed behind Nian Xiaomu and walked toward Mr. Lombardi.
She was Nian Xiaomu’s interpreter, so she had to listen to her no matter what.
Otherwise, she would be responsible if anything were to go wrong.
However, if Mr. Lombardi were to reject Nian Xiaomu with his own mouth…
Wang Miaomiao narrowed her eyes as a streak of dull light flashed across her face.
Without a word, she walked over to Nian Xiaomu’s side.
On the other end. At the entrance of the restaurant.
Lombardi’s team appeared to be very hungry as they walked into the restaurant and looked for a table.
Seizing the right moment, Nian Xiaomu instructed Wang Miaomiao to go forward to greet them.
In fluent Italian, Wang Miaomiao walked forward and asked, “Sorry to disturb you, Mr. Lombardi. Could I have a few minutes of your time?”
Hearing this, the group of five, who had just entered the restaurant, stopped in their tracks.
Right in the front was an elderly person who was of a rather slight stature.
With his brown eyes, high-bridged nose, and white sideburns on the sides of his face, he looked like a regular grandpa from the neighborhood. He seemed very friendly, and had an air of affability, like Santa Claus.
In contrast, the people behind him were strikingly tall and appeared very stern.
When they recognized Wang Miaomiao as the interpreter from the Yu Corporation, their smiling faces immediately fell.
They spontaneously turned to look at the elderly person in the front.
He was the person in charge of the team, Mr. Lombardi.
The moment he heard Wang Miaomiao’s words, his reaction was rather calm.
He only looked up coolly and gave an icy smile.
“We have nothing more to say. Please go.”
When he was done speaking, he led his team and was about to step past Nian Xiaomu to leave.
When she saw his reaction, she did not need any translation to know that she had been rejected, so she hurriedly reached out her hands to stop Mr. Lombardi from leaving.
Then, she turned to ask Wang Miaomiao to translate a message for her.
Besides expressing her apology for being late at the airport, she also wanted to explain that as the host, she only wanted to have a meal with Mr. Lombardi and his team. She would not bug them about the collaboration.
As Nian Xiaomu let Wang Miaomiao translate her message for her, she raised her hand to send a signal to the nearby table.
The dishes that she had ordered earlier were served by the service staff.
The whole table was filled with dishes that looked appetizing and smelled delicious. It was so tempting to start eating right away.
Furthermore, she had already said that this meal was a form of apology and that she would not ask Mr. Lombardi to agree to the collaboration.
It was a simple request, and the look on Lombardi’s face changed slightly.
After listening to the translated message, he stared at Nian Xiaomu for half a minute before he turned to seek his team’s opinion.
They had been on a long flight over from Italy and had not eaten properly on the plane. Currently, they were famished.
Right in front of them was a table of sumptuous food, and Nian Xiaomu’s apologetic face looked very sincere.
If he were to disagree with this, they would appear very petty.
After more than 10 seconds, Mr. Lombardi turned and nodded lightly at her.
“Supervisor Nian, Mr. Lombardi said yes to your request.”
Standing by the side and carrying out her interpreter duty, Wang Miaomiao watched Lombardi and his team walk toward Nian Xiaomu and her table. Only then did she regain her composure.
She had not expected that based on a few words from Nian Xiaomu, Mr. Lombardi would agree to have a meal together with them and had not chased them away!
