Melanie did not bother to explain as she headed straight to the office.
She informed her department about submitting the documents on Friday, and groans immediately echoed inside the office.
Yana looked sadly at Melanie. “Does Mr. Scott have something against the secretary’s department, Melanie? We used to have a week, but now we’re given only four days.”
Melanie replied, “LeapCo has been in several business negotiations recently, and it’s a busy period for
This was true, and Yana had nothing else to say about it. She sighed again. “I’ll do my best on account of the bonus Mr. Scott hands out.”
Melanie emailed Eugene the two documents he requested and later sent him a message to remind him about them.
Lunchtime came, and Tina came by to have lunch with Melanie.
She was quite an efficient worker. She brought her laptop to lunch so she could filter through the
LeapCo had always given good benefits to employees, which was why many graduates did everything they could to join the company.
Melanie’s phone was also vibrating. She took a look at it and saw that Simon and the others had shared photos from Joshua’s birthday. Most of the photos were taken by Simon.
His photo–taking technique was not great, and the photos he took were terrible.
It was not long before the group chat was filled with angry messages.
“Melanie,” Tina called out to her while she was looking at the photos.
She looked up. “What is it?”
Tina winked at her and pushed her phone toward Melanie. “I was right. Viola Shaw has been converted to a full–time staff. Julie is personally handling her files.”
Her phone had a message from Julie requesting Tina to get Viola’s files later in the afternoon.
Melanie glanced at it and looked away. Julie had always had a high standard. If Eugene had not requested it, she would not have worked on anything involving Viola.
However, these now had nothing to do with Melanie.
After lunch, Melanie went to tidy up the meeting room and prepare the necessary documents.
Eugene did not bring anyone else with him when he arrived.
There was another ten minutes before the meeting started. Melanie placed the necessary documents in front of Eugene. “These are the notes from the last meeting. The solutions provided in subsequent meetings for the questions posed before are recorded here as well. You can take a look at it.”
Eugene flipped through the notes and said nonchalantly, “Speed up the process for the mid–year analysis.”
“Alright.” Melanie nodded.
She placed a few more documents where it was easy for Eugene to grab. It had now become a habit of hers that did not require any further thinking. Eugene was also used to how the documents were placed.
The other party arrived quite early. There were five or six of them, and Joshua was among them.
He had specially come to see Melanie the last time he was here. She smiled and nodded at him in greeting.
Joshua lowered his voice and asked, “Did you get home alright during the weekend, Melanie? I’m so sorry about that day. I was supposed to see you home, but I was drunk. I feel bad about it.”
Melanie replied softly, “It’s fine.”
Joshua wanted to say something more but decided not to as this was the meeting room.
When everyone had arrived, Melanie sat next to Eugene.
The Manson project had been planned by LeapCo for a long time. Even though Melanie had been transferred, Eugene still passed most of the information to her.
That was why she was able to keep up with what Eugene said. When he required certain information, Melanie would pull out the correct data required.
After the meeting, Eugene gave her a rare praise, “Not bad. You were very quick to react.”
Melanie said, “Mr. Levees and the others are waiting for you outside.”
