Lily walked over and sat down gracefully. Melanie had arrived at the venue earlier. Once Lily took her seat,Melanie glanced over at Nathaniel, who noticed that and gave Melanie an “Okay” gesture. Seeing that, Melanie felt slightly more at ease. The press conference soon commenced, and Nathaniel went straight to the point. “I’m sure all of you heard about the incident during the perfumery competition last night. There were some misunderstandings. Hence, we arranged this press conference to clarify the misunderstandings to those concerned with the media’s help. ” Nathaniel paused before he continued, “The product ‘First Love,’ which was one ofMN Inc. ’s entries to the competition, was well-received by everyone. However, two companies submitted the same work, which raised concerns about plagiarism and intellectual property theft. The people involved in this incident are already here, so I won’t say more. Now, I’ll pass the floor to the two perfumers to explain it to all of you, alright?” Then Nathaniel passed the microphone to Melanie. Melanie wore a black Bardot dress, making her look imposing. The interesting thing was that her black dress formed a sharp contrast with Lily’s white dress. Accustomed to such situations, Melanie brightly smiled as she said, “Hello, everyone. I’m Melanie Thayer, MN Inc

’s chief perfumer. ” The way Melanie introduced herself as MN Inc. ’s chief perfumer made Lily lower her gazeand smirk. “As Mr. Hall briefly explained the incident earlier, I won’t be repeating it. I just want to say that I’ve known hard work is more important than talent ever s ince I started my career in thisindustry. I believe that a great perfume results from a perf umer’s dedication to the lifelong learning of frag rances through continuousresearch and experiments. We must put our minds to doing the right thing. Playing tricks may help a person g ain short-term benefits, but it wi ll never help them in the long run. Am I right, Lily?” Melanie c oncluded her part by throwing a question to Lily casually. Sure enough, eve ryone’s attention averted to Lily. They were all ears, waiting to hear wh at Lily had to say. Although Melanie did not deno unce Lily, everyone understood the meaning behind her words. Melanie made it clear she was the vic tim, while Lily was the thief who pla giarized and stole the work of others. The microphone was in fr ont of Lily, but she was not in a hurry to speak. She looked around the v enue, her gaze sweeping almost the entire place. Just when Nathaniel started to get anxious and wanted to remind Lily to speak, he fin ally heard Lily say, “I agree with what Ms

Thay er s aid. It’s indeed most importan t for us to put our minds to doing the right thing. Besi des, Ms. Thayer was right about one’s hard work being more important than one’s talent. ” The reporters clicke d their cameras wildly, but Lilydid not dodge them. She remained calm in the face of th e blinding lights. Nathaniel and Melanie kept a profe ssional smile on their faces while a thought popped up in their minds. Lily was merely repeating Melani e’s exact words. Everything sounded the same, but why did the two get suspicious when those words came from Lily? “Ms. Christian, are you admittin g that you stole Ms. Thayer’s work?” one of the reporters asked. Lily lightly smiled when she heard such a critical question. “I did not say that. ” “Oh?” There was an u proar among the crowd. The cameras started flashing aga in instantly, and more reporters were eager to ask Lily questions
