“What? Why are you meddling in the matter? You are still in postpartum recovery! Hello? Hello?”
Jason hung up the phone helplessly.
Leslie asked, “What’s wrong?”
Jason sighed. “My wife went to Young Advertising.”
As his words fell, Leslie disappeared before him.
At Young Advertising, Aurelia heard footsteps outside the office. Just as she turned to look at the door, she was pushed hard from the back
There, Kimberly stood with her arms folded across her chest. She had a smug smile plastered when Aurelia turned and saw her.
“Aurelia, I heard that Mr. Lynch’s wife is the daughter of a foreign real estate tycoon. Plea make sure not to implicate us and the company if you’ve provoked such a big figure.”
Kimberly fanned the flames.
“That’s right, we are only your colleagues–ordinary employees making a living. You should take responsibility for all the disgrace you caused alone!”
The others immediately drew a line with Aurelia indifferently.
At the same time, Florence was pushed into the office in a wheelchair.
It was inconvenient for her to walk now, but even in a wheelchair, the noble air she exuded couldn’t be concealed.
She wore a long black silk dress with a designer shawl draped over her shoulders. Her makeup was exquisite as well.
Rather than a postpartum mother, Florence resembled a successful businessw
Zachary was worried that things would get serious. Thus, he quickly stepped forward with an apologetic smile.
“Welcome, Mrs. Lynch. Shall we talk in my office?”
“It’s unnecessary.” Florence raised her head proudly. “Some things are meant to be clarified openly for the better.”
Zachary’s face contorted, and he shot Aurelia a dirty look.
Following his gaze, Florence raised her hand to point at Aurelia.
“Why are you still standing over there? Come here!”
“Mrs. Lynch, I…”
As Aurelia was about to speak, Kimberly interrupted her and bumped into her from behind. “Aurelia, do you still want to excuse yourself? Why don’t you apologize to Mrs. Lynch? You’re
a disgrace to women.”
After saying that, Kimberly sashayed toward Florence.
She put on a distressed look and said, “Mrs. Lynch, please have mercy on Aurelia. I’m able to understand why she chose to do these things through the back door. She only wanted to
outperform me, so I apologize on behalf of her.”
A disgrace to women? Using the back door?
Aurelia glanced at her.
Kimberly had claimed to have received a designer bag from Jason. But now, in front of Florence, she accused others of going through the back door.
It was absurd.
Standing further behind, all the married colleagues were rolling their eyes in annoyance. However, no one dared to expose her lies.
Kimberly not only had a certain background. She was also a popular candidate running for the position of deputy director.
Upon hearing her words, Florence scanned Kimberly from head to toe.
She asked, “Who are you? Why do you apologize for her?”
Thinking that she had attracted Florence’s attention, Kimberly was delighted.
Right now, it didn’t matter if Jason was indifferent to her anymore. If she could just win Florence’s favor, her status would be raised imminently. It wouldn’t be hard given Florence’s family background.
“Mrs. Lynch, my name is Kimberly Watson. I am one of the planners competing for the project with One Technology.”
“I see.” Staring at Kimberly, Florence narrowed her eyes and nodded.
“Mrs. Lynch, you’re a magnanimous person, so please have mercy on Aurelia. Don’t worry, Young Advertising won’t condone her misconduct. We will provide you a proper explanation.”
Acting as if she were considering the big picture, Kimberly gave Zachary a knowing look.
Zachary went along with her, saying, “That’s right, Mrs. Lynch. We will handle the matter well.
“Really?” Florence asked as she glanced lightly at Zachary.
“Definitely.” Zachary nodded solemnly.
Hearing that, Kimberly couldn’t help smiling. She presumed that Aurelia wouldn’t be able to compete with her for the position of deputy director anymore.
