Melanie’s body stiffened as she looked at Eugene. Enduring the discomfort, she explained, He’s a friend of mine.”
Eugene looked away and said casually, “Is that so?”
He sounded as though he did not believe her.
Melanie did not like being accused, yet she did not need to argue with Eugene. She pinched her fingers to calm herself down and said patiently, “The contract has been signed, and I’ll send you the documents. Can I leave early?”
Eugene glanced at her with a cold, mocking look as if he had seen through her thoughts.
It was only a glimpse, and he soon said, “No.”
Frowning, Melanie thought Eugene was making things difficult for her. Her expression was also cold as she said frankly, “I haven’t taken my annual leave for the year. I think it should be fine if I use it now?”
Snorting, Eugene said, “You’re dumping your boss halfway through your business trip. Melanie, your professionalism is surprisingly poor.”
Melanie had nothing to say.
After a moment of silence, she asked, “Are we heading back to the hotel now?”
Eugene looked at his phone before lifting his head. “Follow me to a place.”
Melanie thought Eugene was taking her to an office building, yet it surprised her when they arrived at a golf course.
The caddy was polite. “Mr. Simon is waiting for you inside.”
Melanie’s forehead creased as she asked, “Did Simon invite you here?”
She felt uncomfortable. Simon was a playboy and an idle man. He was famous for being a useless wealthy man.
Eugene might be here to golf with Simon.
Melanie would only be mocked if she went with Eugene.
Hesitating, she said, “I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to follow you to meet Simon.”
Eugen turned around. “Who do you think should come, then?”
“I can call Viola.”
After she spoke, Eugene answered her calmly, “She’s not as sensible as you are.‘
Melanie pursed her lips. Calling her sensible could be a bad description.
However, when she entered the golf course with Eugene, she understood why Eugene brought her.
Other than Simon, there were five to six others, consisting of both men and women. Each of them was in an intimate position with someone of the opposite sex.
Moreover, from their attire, Melanie could tell they were well–to–do.
Melanie knew Eugene was afraid of corrupting Viola’s mind with this kind of environment.
When Simon saw Eugene, he approached with a beautiful lady in his arms. He was startled upon seeing Melanie and asked, “Why did you bring her?”
Eugene looked calm. “We just finished signing the contract and came here on the way back.”
“Alright then.” Simon shrugged.
He glanced at those people behind him and lowered his voice. “They’re from wealthy families of Prime City. Do you want to hang out and make friends with them?”
Since they were already there, Eugene would naturally not refuse.
Someone happened to beckon them to play golf. Simon placed his arm over Eugene’s shoulder and walked over to them.
Melanie did not have much interest in golf. Although she had entered golf courses countless times because of work, she seldom played.
Her primary skills were taught by Eugene long ago.
Back then, she was about to deal with an important client, and that client’s hobby was playing golf. Melanie would ask Eugene to teach her golf whenever she was free just to get an appointment with the client.
She was not a sports person, and Eugene had taught her countless times, yet she barely learned how to swing the golf club properly.
She depended on luck to get the ball into the hole.
