He soon proved Melanie wrong.
Xander was very capable. He took the lead when discussing terms with the client, and his insights were often spot–on.
The client, Mr. Lewis, was the entertainment director. He seemed quite impressed. “Bravo, Mr. Solomon. You’re quite the promising young rookie.”
Xander’s expression was unmoved. He pushed some of the documents on the table toward Melanie and quietly told her, “Just record everything accordingly. Don’t mess the information up.”
Melanie looked at the documents. They included information on the heavy hitters of the financial world and their previous projects.
She had even met one of them before when she followed Eugene to a meeting.
She paused and asked Xander, “If I remember correctly, your project is split into a few different phases, right? Are you going to put all these bigwigs in the same phase?”
Xander gave her a second look.
Melanie smiled. “Have you forgotten what my main job is?”
The bigwigs in the files were some of the more well–known ones.
Melanie had worked in the financial industry for a long time, so she knew them very well.
It did not take her very long to sort everything out and place the arranged documents in front of
Xander was explaining his design concept to Mr. Lewis at the time. When he saw the neatly-
organized documents, there was a flash of surprise in his eyes. After that, he was even calmer when he talked to Mr. Lewis about the plan.
Mr. Lewis looked at the clear timeline, even more impressed now. “I see your sincerity and
dedication, Mr. Solomon. I was right to choose you.”
Xander nodded elegantly. “I’m glad to see you’re satisfied.”
The meeting progressed quite quickly, ending at around eleven o’clock.
Mr. Lewis wanted to treat them to lunch, but Xander refused, saying, “We still have to go back to the studio and discuss the plan in detail.”
After leaving the meeting place, Oliver raised his hand. “Boss, Reny is alone in the hospital. I want to
The other employees wanted to follow suit.
Melanie asked Xander, “Can I go see her too?”
“Fine, we’ll all go.”
The hospital was the same one Melanie had been yesterday. Reny had just come out of surgery and was lying on the hospital bed, looking pale.
When she saw Melanie, her eyes lit up. “Melanie, you’re in Hearth City too?”
“Yes. How are you?” Melanie asked.
Although Reny was a little pale, she seemed spirited enough.
Having too many people crowding around her would still disturb her rest, though, so they just exchanged a few words and then left Oliver to look after her.
It was around lunchtime now. One of the staffers invited everyone to go out for lunch, even suggesting a few restaurants nearby.
Melanie had just recovered, so she could not eat anything too oil but spicy. At the same time, she did not want to dampen their spirits. “Xander, I’ll head back to the hotel to rest now. You guys can go have lunch without me.”
Xander frowned and stopped the excited staffer. “Remember to go back to the hotel after you’re done eating. We need to make the necessary adjustments.”
The staffer was surprised until Xander explained, “She can’t eat anything too spicy.”
He only meant to say that Melanie could not eat spicy food because she was not feeling well. At the
same time, he did not want to reveal too much without her permission, so he made the reasons vague.
Unexpectedly, his staff members began to cheer and tease him excitedly.
“Melanie?” Suddenly, Viola’s voice came from behind them.
Melanie stiffened and looked over her shoulder. Sure enough, it was Viola.
She was alone, though. Eugene must be elsewhere.
The moment Viola saw Xander, she was clearly stunned. “Melanie, is this your friend?”
Melanie had not expected to meet Viola here. She felt a little uncomfortable. “Why are you at the hospital again?”
