Some of the colleagues who couldn’t stand Kimberly began to snicker.
Seeing that she didn’t have the upper hand, Kimberly said bitterly, “Aurelia, this isn’t the end. Don’t be too complacent.”
After giving her a response, Aurelia ignored Kimberly and looked down at her phone. What came into her view was the wedding photo she had taken with Leslie.
As his handsome face lingered in her mind, she considered calling to ask if Leslie had helped her. Even if he hadn’t, she should be explaining such a huge matter to him as his wife.
Thinking about it, Aurelia stood up and walked out of the office with her phone.
Right after she had dialed Leslie’s number, a ringtone rang behind her. She immediately turned around, only to find Leslie standing behind her.
Just as she was about to speak, Leslie covered her mouth and pulled her into the corner.
Meanwhile, Kimberly and her colleague exited the office.
“That’s strange. I saw a man following Aurelia earlier when she came out. Where did he
“Were you mistaken?” Kimberly turned and prepared to leave.
“Impossible! She couldn’t have started a new relationship just after breaking up, could she? Otherwise, wouldn’t it mean that she is thriving both in love and work?”
Just as her colleague finished speaking, Kimberly’s grim expression. Her colleague noticed it and immediately shut up.
Kimberly bit her lip and seethed with hatred.
Why had all the favorable matters occurred only to Aurelia? There’s no way Kimberly would let Aurelia be smug about it!
As they were hiding in the corner, Aurelia heard the footsteps fading away. She then let out a sigh of relief.
She couldn’t let Kimberly find out that she was married to an employee of One Technology. After all, she would be sure to complain of the unfair competition.
Besides that, Aurelia really wanted to hold onto this opportunity.
When she came to her senses, Aurelia felt the warm breath over her head. She raised her eyes slightly. Only then did she realize that she had been surrounded by Leslie in the corner.
Her face heated up. “Mr. Synder, they’re gone.”
Lowering his eyes, Leslie,met a pair of watery eyes. It felt as if a feather was tickling his heart lightly.
He then cleared his throat slightly and took a step back. He said calmly, “I’m here to check on Mr. Lynch.”
Aurelia nodded. There were no signs of surprise on her face because she knew he wasn’t here in worry of her.
Leslie narrowed his eyes. What was her expression supposed to be? Did she not want him to come after all?
His tone turned cold immediately. “The matter has been resolved. I’ll go back to the company.
With that, he turned around with indifference as Aurelia watched.
Thinking for a few moments, she chased after him.
“Mr. Synder, thank you.”
“Thank you for helping me. If you need my help in any way, be sure to tell me.” Aurelia smiled.
Her smile was faint–it was insignificant yet unforgettable.
Sensing Leslie’s stare, Aurelia pursed her lips and lowered her eyes a little.
She somewhat regretted having blurted out those words. Leslie was really smart. So, when would he ever need her help?
Aurelia was about to explain when Leslie leaned in with his figure towering over her. The hand he had placed on the wall moved from above her head to beside her ear.
He leaned in further to look her in the eye and said, “I don’t like pasta.”
Aurelia said, “Huh?”
Aurelia was left speechless.
When she glanced over, Leslie had already entered the elevator.
She raised her hand to feel the heat on her cheeks. What was she shy o
Aurelia calmed down for a while before returning to the office to continue working.
An hour later, her phone vibrated. Surfacing her phone screen was an unfamiliar number, so she thought it was a client. Thus, she picked up the call.
“Aurelia, it’s me, Seth. Why haven’t you unblocked my number yet? Are you still angry?” It actually turned out to be Seth. They hadn’t contacted each other for several days.
