It was already lunchtime, and Melanie had only organized less than half of the documents.
Reny was still in the hospital. They were discussing who among them should bring her lunch. Xander spoke up, “You can all go.”
Others gazed at Melanie and Xander with curious looks.
Melanie was arranging those messy documents, and Xander was expressionless. “Be back on time for work in the afternoon.”
After Melanie was done arranging the documents, he said, “Let’s go downstairs for lunch.”
The hotel had a restaurant downstairs, and Melanie did not want to go any farther either. Thus, they headed to the second floor.
However, she did not expect to meet Viola at the restaurant. 
Melanie’s forehead creased. Melanie had no idea Eugene and Viola were staying here.
Upon seeing Xander and her, Viola was surprised as well. It was just that she hid her surprised expression well. She greeted Melanie with a smile, “Melanie, what a coincidence.”
There was nothing coincidental about it.
Melanie was too lazy to respond to it and walked past her.
Viola’s smile froze, but she recalled what had happened yesterday. She couldn’t help herself from reminding Melanie with a gloating smile, “Melanie, do you know your mother asked for money from Eugene?”
Melanie stopped and turned around with a stern face.
Viola smiled gently, yet her words were ear–piercing. “Eugene didn’t lend her the money. After all,
she didn’t look like she could return it.”
Melanie saw Viola’s mocking and despiteful gaze. She asked calmly, “What are you boasting about? Did Eugene put his assets under your name?”
After speaking, she glanced at Viola and added calmly, “Have you even married Eugene yet?”
Those words shut down Viola, making her face blush.
That was Viola’s soft spot.
Stella had never been to LeapCo again after the last time they met her.
No matter how she tried to hint to Eugene that she wanted to meet his family, Eugene did not say anything about taking her to meet Stella.
Viola was not silly. She knew she had to win Stella’s heart to marry Eugene.
However, she could not even meet her.
Melanie retorted to Viola before she went to get her food. Xander followed behind her and pondered as he observed her.
After a while, he asked Melanie, “I had always thought you were gentle, but you have quite a personality.”
Melanie felt it was troublesome to order food. Hence, she opted for the buffet and got some salad.
Hearing what Xander said, she answered, “I’m not in a good mood.”
Xander naturally knew she was in a bad mood and said nothing more. He took some food and sat with her.
Their table was at the corner, and a plant blocked most of their view. All others could see was Melanie was with a man from afar.
After hesitating, Viola took a photo of them and sent it to Eugene.
Looking at her phone, she typed: [I met Melanie while eating at the restaurant. Isn’t she staying in a different hotel?]
Melanie had a bad appetite and only ate a few bites.
Frowning, Xander asked, “Are you done eating?”
She fell silent for a moment and said, “Please excuse me. I have to make a call.”
Viola’s voice echoed in her mind.
If Dylan had borrowed money from Eugene…
Her emotions surged as she took her phone and left the restaurant.
The call went through after it rang for a long time. Eugene’s deep voice sounded. “Speak.”
Melanie’s hand that was grabbing the phone froze. She did not know what to say.
Eugene’s surroundings seemed a little noisy. He might be outside, and he sounded a little irritated.”
With difficulty, Melanie asked, “Dylan asked you for money. Is that true?”
