Melanie paused for a moment before she put her bag away, took off her coat, and asked calmly, “Are you here to complain on behalf of Viola?”
Otherwise, Melanie could not think of any other reason for Eugene to be here.
Eugene raised his eyes and asked, “Why did you come back so late?”
In order to revise Viola’s report, Melanie got off work half an hour later than usual.
Melanie made herself a cup of tea to warm her stomach.
Eugene was still looking at her. He was sitting on the sofa with his long legs stretched out. He looked so casual, as if he owned the place.
Melanie said, “I worked overtime, and it was raining outside, so I came home a little later than usual.”
“You’re unhappy with Viola.” Eugene raised his eyebrows as he stated this.
Melanie took a sip of tea and instantly felt much better. She was not interested in discussing Viola with Eugene. “Isn’t it enough that you’re happy with her? Does it matter what I think of her?”
Her tone was not very pleasant as she added, “Why are you here?”
Eugene’s phone, which was on the coffee table, rang. He lowered his eyes and sized
and sized up Melanie.
The next second, he looked away, picked up his phone on the coffee table, and responded to the message. His eyes landed on Melanie’s slim waist before he chuckled. “What do you think I’m here for?”
They had a tacit understanding after so many years of being intimate.
By the end of it, Eugene even carried Melanie to the bathroom to wash up. 1
However, he left a lot of marks on Melanie’s body. Some of them did not fade the next day.
Melanie thought that deliberately covering up would attract more attention, so she wore a simple long–sleeved shirt and high–waisted pants. She looked very smart and chic.
Melanie did not notice that Eugene had accidentally given her a hickey on the side of her neck. However, others noticed it.
Viola’s face was glum all day long, and she stared at Melanie from time to time.
During their lunch break, Melanie could hear Viola and Eugene quarreling in the president’s office. Shortly after, Viola came out with red eyes and slammed the door shut.
When she passed by Melanie, she paused and left in a huff.
Melanie packed her things calmly because she had to meet a client in the afternoon.
When Melanie came back from the client meeting, Viola’s eyes were still red.
Melanie guessed that it was probably because of their quarrel.
However, Melanie did not care and took a document to Eugene.
She handed the file and said, “I need your signature.”
Eugene hummed, looked at her neck with a frown, and asked, “Why didn’t you cover it up? Do you want her to see it?”
Melanie said, “I didn’t notice.”
She finally knew why Viola quarreled with Eugene. He was also looking for someone to blame.
Melanie offered, “I can explain it to her if necessary.”
Eugene paused while holding his pen and sneered. He asked calmly, “How will you explain it?”
“I can tell her that I slept with someone else. It has nothing to do with you.”
“Melanie.” After hearing her words, Eugene was silent for a long time. He looked at her expressionless face, which seemed as if she really did not care who she slept with last night.
Eugene poked his inner cheek with his tongue and threw the pen on the table. He asked in a mocking tone, “Do you think that I’m just some random guy?”
