She was about to speak as she assumed the post of CEO when she suddenly noticed Cordy standing at the door, and she froze.
Simon, who was seated in the middle of the front row, turned around to look when he saw the weird look in Noel’s eyes.
He glowered the instant he saw Cordy and sprang to his feet, storming toward Cordy with a look of disgust and contempt as everyone else looked on. “What are you doing here?!”
“This is my mother’s company. Is there a problem?” Cordy asked in return.
She was calm but no less imposing, and she was certainly not cowed by Simon.
“I don’t want to argue right now,” Simon snapped impatiently. “Get out of here right now—I don’t have time to waste on you today. Whatever it is, you can tell me later!”
However, Cordy shared the same sentiment and simply walked straight into the conference room.
Noel watched as she did so, her eyes flashing dangerously for an instant.
Still, an angelic smile appeared on her face the next second. “Hey, sis! Did you come to see my appointment as CEO? I’m so glad!”
Cordy actually thought that it was a waste that Noel was not an actress.
Simply ignoring her, Cordy whipped out a document in front of everyone and made an announcement.
“Greetings, I’m Cordy Sachs. I have come to Starstream to assume ownership over the company as per my later mother’s wishes. I’m grateful to my father for taking care of the company before my return.”
The conference room was left in an uproar right after she spoke.
