Oliver exclaimed and said in admiration, “You’re working for LeapCo? Hats off to ya!”
Melanie asked him, “You know about LeapCo?”
“Yeah! My uncle has been working on venture capitals, and he mentioned this new magnate in Jepton.”
Melanie stared at the drafts on the table without saying anything.
LeapCo had indeed achieved a breakthrough. However, LeapCo had been given to Eugene by Cedric to test him.
When Eugene took over LeapCo, its condition was very bad.
Melanie had witnessed every step he took to achieve his current success.
Back then, Eugene was not as decisive as he was now. He was just a rich man’s son who had just entered the industry. Regardless of his good family background, he faced many challenges.
However, Eugene had always been strict with himself.
Melanie’s thoughts were interrupted by a burst of laughter. She looked up and saw Oliver’s blushing face as he was being quipped at.
Xander glanced over from behind as he knocked on the table. “Alright, let’s get back to work.”
What they were discussing next was not something Melanie would understand. She got back to organizing the documents.
The information could have been more structured, and organizing them was troublesome.
Fortunately, Melanie had been organizing Eugene’s documents while working in the secretary’s department. She was a pretty organized person herself.
Melanie was almost done when it was nearly six.
She showed her work to Xander, who said, “As expected from a professional.”
Melanie took her handbag, preparing to leave. Xander wanted to send her off, but he suddenly
received a call from the client who wanted to talk to him about the exhibition.
With that, Melanie nodded and left.
After leaving the lively atmosphere, Melanie’s strong disguise shattered.
Just as she stepped into the elevator, the phone in her handbag rang. The noisy ringtone seemed a little hasty in the quiet environment.
Startled, Melanie froze before answering the call with a frown.
It was a call from the nursing home. Melanie heard the dean’s heaving voice when she answered it. ” Miss Smith, Mr. Lancaster suddenly fainted.”
Subconsciously, Melanie thought of Dylan. Her voice stuttered as she asked, “Why did he suddenly
“The caretaker said he answered a call and got agitated. When the caretaker found him, he had
already passed out and was on the ground.”
“Miss Smith, please be prepared. There’s a risk of Mr. Lancaster getting a stroke.”
Melanie’s voice was hoarse. “I’ll be back immediately.”
The dean hung up the call, and Melanie immediately booked a flight back to Jepton.
It was past 10:00 pm when she landed at Jepton. Melanie did not dare to dawdle and immediately headed to the nursing home.
Fortunately, the nursing home was right beside the city’s hospital. The dean was waiting outside the
ward when she arrived.
The dean immediately approached upon seeing her. “Miss Smith, you’re finally here.”
Melanie asked, “How’s my grandfather’s condition?”
“Not good. Mr. Lancaster’s condition was bad to begin with, and he was agitated this time. His blood pressure and heart rate exceeded his normal range. Although the doctor at the nursing home rescued him, his condition isn’t quite optimistic.”
Melanie’s expression was cold. She pushed open the door and saw her grandfather in bed with an oxygen mask on him.
He looked older than the last time she visited him.
Melanie walked lightly as she approached him. He seemed to have heard the footsteps and reached out his thin and dry right hand after he opened his eyes.
He tried to speak, but no sound came out of his mouth.
Melanie grabbed his hand and said, “Grandpa, I’m back.”
“Mel…” Albert’s voice was soft. Melanie could only hear his faint voice when she leaned over.
