Her hand tightened around her notebook and she said rudely, “Melanie, remember to send it upstairs before work or else everyone will have to wait for you.”
Once Viola left, Yana frowned and complained, “What is she trying to say? Who is she trying to boss?”
Melanie did not care. She looked up who was the one who was doing the minutes for last Wednesday and saw that it was a female employee who kept to herself.
Melanie did not say anything aside from asking her to send the minutes up.
Coincidentally, Cecelia and a few interns came in and handed Melanie their tenures. “Melanie, this is our application for tenure.”
Melanie took them over and asked. “Do you have all the information and proof needed?”
After the interns left, Yana approached her and asked, “Melanie, I heard there are five quotas from our department. Does it mean all five of them can stay?”
Melanie did not expect this so she asked, “Five?”
“Yeah, Tina told me during lunch.” After Yana said that, she thought about Viola again and she showed obvious displeasure on her face. “However, that one from the president’s office is so special. She’s still an intern and yet she’s already so bossy.”
Melanie frowned when Yana talked about Viola getting tenure.
In theory, Viola was still under the secretary’s office, so it meant that six people were fighting for the five spots.
When Melanie got upstairs, it was time to get off work. So, Lee and Julie were packing up their things
Once Viola spotted Melanie, she frowned slightly. “Why are you here, Melanie? We already have the minutes.”
Melanie said, “I need to see Mr. Scott.”
“I can convey the message for you,” Viola said. “He’s busy.”
“It’s about work so you don’t have to be so nervous.” Melanie’s tone was indifferent, but Viola looked embarrassed. She explained softly, “I didn’t mean that.”
Melanie did not want to waste her breath with Viola. She had to go to the hospital after she met Eugene.
So, she walked past Viola and knocked on Eugene’s door. When she heard his deep voice asking her to go in, she pushed the door open.
Eugene was on the phone. When he saw her, he waved his hand at her.
Melanie stood at the door with her lips pressed into a thin line.
After Eugene was done, he looked at her and asked, “What’s up?”
“It’s about the interns‘ tenure. I want to ask you, is Viola using the quota from my department or somewhere else?”
The president’s secretary was transferred from the secretary’s office and there had never been an intern working in the president’s office, so Viola was an exception.
When Eugene heard that, he frowned and his face turned cold. He stared straight at Melanie and asked, “Do you need to ask me this?”
Melanie blinked and said, “There are five quotas and if she’s included, then there will be six people.”
Eugene looked annoyed. “Do I need to teach you how to handle that?”
Of course, Melanie knew what she could do.
She could let go of the worst one among them.
So, she looked at Eugene and asked blankly, “Based on performance and ability, Viola is the worst one among them, so are you sure you want me to decide?”
