The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 68
Chapter 68 Contacting Mary Jane
Leo kept racking his brain but still failed to figure out someone fitting to be the speaker.
However, everyone in the meeting had their work to do so they could not keep wasting time in the conference room.
Thus, Leo said, “Heather, I understood your two matters. Although there’s no one suitable for the speaker temporarily, I’ll think of something in these two days. You go ahead and rent the venue for the product launch and contact the potential customers according to the plan.”
Leo coughed, attracting everyone’s attention, and added, “Everyone, in fact, we should have prepared the product launch by today but we overlooked it and we’re now a step behind. In these few days, I want every department to cooperate with Heather to prepare the preliminary work for this product launch swiftly. Alright, today’s meeting ends here. Dismissed.”
Every attendee nodded, gradually leaving.
When leaving, Bucky draped his arm over Foggy’s shoulder. It was apparent he was going to the law firm next door to have a heart-to-heart talk with Matt.
Heather, who was following behind the two, gritted her teeth before hurriedly going about her business. However, she had mustered the courage to have a talk with Matt this evening.
Within El Tech Company’s conference room, Leo suddenly was the only one left.
Stretching his body, Leo placed his legs on the long table while crossing his arm and began pondering.
Following the company gradually moving on the right track, the matters that required Leo’s attention also increased.
Before this, he never thought managing a company would require this much energy.
According to common sense, an ordinary person who suddenly had a future cash-cow company would be high-spirited and full of energy.
However, Leo was apathetic to that! He was attracted to the Marvel Universe’s countless supernatural phenomena, advanced technology, and heaven-defying strength.
No wonder Tony Stark in the movie was unconcerned about his company! Before he invented Mark Series armor, he was indulging in women. After he had the armor, it became his perfect lover.
“Looks like I have to search for someone to run the company in my stead sometime in the future! But where should I find a capable and loyal person?”
If only I had someone as hard-working as Pepper Potts, just like Tony Stark!
All of a sudden, a bold idea emerged in Leo’s mind.
At the current timeframe, Pepper probably was in her twenties. At most, she had just joined Stark Industries but had yet to attract Stark’s attention.
“No, it’s better to think about the long run! I never met her before and it would cause unnecessary problems if I went directly to Stark Industries and called her by name.”
Leo shook her head, preparing to leave El Building.
Mary Jane’s name card was in Leo’s bedroom, not the office. So, he rushed back home to get her contact information.
Leo’s current home was the rented house he used to brainwash those from Black Fist Gang. It was a bungalow with a basement.
Right now, Leo, Bucky, and Ol’ Tom were living here.
There was a saying ‘if you rented a house, if there are friends or relatives, then it’s a home.’
But Leo came from another world. In this universe, he was all alone by himself. Fortunately, he was quite close with Bucky and Ol’ Tom. So this place could be counted as home.
Leo entered his bedroom and found Mary Jane’s name card after flipping the entire drawer.
He did not have to return to the office since he had a phone in the living room. Therefore, he dialed the numbers on the name card.
“Hi, this is Daily Bugle. I’m Lisa, an intern journalist. How can I help you?”
The call connected but it was not Mary Jane.
Leo asked, “Hello, I’m looking for a journalist named Mary Jane. Is she still working there?”
Luckily, Mary Jane was still working there, only moved to another office. Moreover, from Lisa’s tone, Mary Jane had become an official journalist.
Leo called the number Lisa gave and soon Mary Jane’s voice came out of it.
“Hi, this is Daily Bugle. I’m journalist Mary Jane. How can I help you?”
“Hello, Miss Jane, I’m Leo Erwin. We met half a year ago in front of Midwest Town’s Harvest Hotel. I wonder if you still remember it?”
The phone went silent for a bit, Mary Jane probably was combing through her memory.
“Haha, I’m sorry, Mr. Erwin. It’s been a long time, I can’t remember who you are no matter how hard I try.” Mary Jane awkwardly smiled before adding, “Mr. Erwin, is there something you’re calling about this time?”
On the other side of the phone, Leo was caressing his nose, feeling a bit embarrassed. He would just be direct about his intention if he knew this was going to happen, there was no need for this embarrassment…
“Ahem, Miss Jane, it’s fine if you don’t remember me. We can get to know each other again. I’m Leo Erwin, manager for a company called El Tech Company. The reason I’m calling is to invite you and your newspaper to attend the launch of the high-performance chip that we hosted. I wonder if you are interested in it. Of course, the related costs are negotiable.”
Mary Jane vaguely recalled something when she heard Midwest Town and El Tech Company. She immediately searched for some information on the computer.
As she expected, it was the company that recruited a large batch of workers from Columbia University some time ago.
Mary Jane just graduated from New York University this year. Since New York University and Columbia University both were located in Manhattan, she had heard about the recruitment. After all, the company’s address was in Hell’s Kitchen, the messiest place in New York.
Moreover, a while ago when she was still an intern, she had specifically done a story of the daily life of Hell’s Kitchen inhabitants.
Thus, she was clearer than anyone else about the circumstances in Hell’s Kitchen.
As soon as she learned about it, the first thought that emerged in her mind was ‘How is it possible for a company to open in that place?!’
At that time, Mary Jane prepared to venture into Hell’s Kitchen to investigate the El Tech Company. However, she was stopped by her ex-boyfriend, Peter Parker.
Peter’s attitude during that time was very stubborn and she could not resist him. So, she accepted in the end.
Today, the manager of El Tech Company unexpectedly contacted her. Moreover, according to the manager, they had even met each other before!
“Hello, Miss Jane, are you still there?”
“Erm… Ah! Sorry for making you wait, Mr. Erwin. I just remembered something and was distracted by it.” Mary Jane arranged her thoughts before continuing, “I wish to ask, the El Tech Company you mentioned, is it the one in Hell’s Kitchen?”
“That’s right, that’s the one. Is there any problem?”
