Yana joined LeapCo as an intern a batch earlier than Viola. She was still young, and when she took the document over from Melanie, she asked her, “This batch of interns is about to end their internship. Will all the newbies in our department be retained?”
There were five interns in the secretary’s department, and all of them performed well.
Melanie said, “Let’s wait until they’re here to report for duty.”
“I remember how hard I worked following Lisa around to meet clients because I wanted to be hired as a full–timer.” Yana reminisced about when she just started at LeapCo and sighed.
Melanie knew that LeapCo had strict rules. Any intern planning on continuing with the company had to be outstanding.
As the workload was extremely heavy, the secretary’s department worked overtime.
There were about 20 or more people working in the secretary’s department. They did not go very far for dinner and decided on a pizza restaurant nearby.
Opposite the restaurant was a street that was designed with a heavy Italian influence and had many high–end restaurants.
Julie had just stepped inside, and she began sizing up the Italian restaurant that Viola had reserved. A look of slight ridicule flashed in her eyes.
She did not look highly at the way Viola acted. Viola did not know how to do anything yet was always putting up an act of being an elite at work.
Viola had no idea what was going through Julie’s mind. There was a bright smile on her face. “You’re here, Julie.”
Julie nodded. “Where’s Mr. Scott?”
She had no interest in the restaurant Viola picked. If it was not for the fact that Eugene would be here, she would never agree to have dinner with Viola.
However, Viola’s expression froze when Julie mentioned Eugene. Viola said nonchalantly, “Eugene had a last–minute thing to attend to. He won’t be coming tonight.”
“Isn’t Mr. Scott celebrating with you when this is such an important occasion?”
The look Julie gave Viola was not as friendly as before.
After all, Eugene had always indulged Viola. He should be here with her to celebrate Viola becoming
an official full–timer.
Viola could sense Julie’s change in attitude and quickly shook her head while trying to explain, “You know how busy Eugene usually is, Julie.”
Julie said nothing. Lee from the office had also arrived.
Lee was the only male secretary in the office. He had a warm personality and had a way with people.
The moment he entered the restaurant, he said, “I’m sorry for being late. I bumped into Melanie and the others outside and was saying hi to them.”
Viola frowned. “Melanie is nearby too?”
“Yeah. Their department is getting together for pizza.”
Julie snorted with a laugh and said with disdain, “That’s pretty low–class of Melanie. Even her dinners with colleagues have been relegated to normal pizza.”
She said this sarcastically. Julie had insulted Melanie and even hinted at Viola’s poor choice in picking
However, Julie was suddenly reminded of something.
She had joined LeapCo one or two years earlier than Melanie and had watched Melanie work her way up from an intern to the position of Eugene’s secretary.
Her eyes narrowed. When Melanie became a full–time staff at LeapCo, Eugene generously bought dinner for the entire secretary’s department.
However, there were also a few others in the same batch who had been converted to full–time aside
from Melanie back then.
However, when Julie went looking for Melanie with a glass of wine in her hand to congratulate her, she accidentally saw Melanie wrapped up in Eugene’s arms. They were kissing each other.
They were hidden in a corner then. The elegant man had his hand clutched tight on the waist of the woman in his arms while kissing her passionately.
