Viola was not too loud, but the interns near her could hear everything she said. Therefore, their faces fell. However, Melanie was still calm. “You can leave if there’s nothing else.”
Viola chuckled dryly. “I was just being nice.”
However, Melanie ignored her so she could only leave. Yet, she felt horrible and figured Melanie was still looking down on her.
Before she could leave, she heard an intern saying, “Melanie, why is she getting tenure from our department? Isn’t she from upstairs?”
“She hasn’t been transferred officially,” Melanie said.
“I see.” The interns‘ voices trailed off. Everyone in LeapCo knew that Viola was dating Mr. Scott.
Yana blurted out when she saw the different expressions on the interns‘ faces, “What are you worried about? With her performance and ability, I think there’s nothing on her report. Of course, LeapCo doesn’t just want pretty people.”
Then, the interns looked at each other and let out sighs of relief. Melanie did not say anything.
On the contrary, Viola’s face turned pale and she bit her lip on the outside.
Yet, she calmed down very soon.
It was because no matter who Melanie let go, she would not let her
After all, she did not have the guts to do so.
After Melanie dismissed the interns, she looked at her computer and massaged her temples.
The five interns were all amazing and indeed, she wanted to keep all of them.
However, she had to keep Viola as well.
When Yana saw Melanie’s face, she asked in concern, “What’s wrong?”
Melanie shook her head. “Nothing. I was just thinking about something.”
“But…” Yana frowned and continued, “Why is Viola still here? There are only five quotas, so if she’s included, then…”
Melanie knew what she was going to say before she could finish, so she said, “I will handle this.”
Yana knew this was not something she should worry about, so she turned around and minded her business.
Melanie looked at the reports on her desk in silence for a while, and then, she collected them all and put them into a folder.
Around noon, she and Yana went to the cafeteria to eat and they ran into Tina.
Tina was very nice and took the initiative to come over to say hello. She raised her hand and tapped on the table in front of Melanie. “What are you thinking about? I called you a few times.”
“Melanie is thinking about the problem of the century,” Yana told Tina about Viola and a few interns. Although she seemed relaxed when she was comforting the interns in the morning, she also knew in her heart that Viola was bound to stay, so Melanie had to consider which unlucky intern she had to let go.
Tina did not think this was a problem. She said, “What are you worried about? Someone just resigned from the export department, so you can just transfer them over there.”
The export department and the secretary’s office were completely different departments. Yana hesitated, “Isn’t this a little evil?”
“What’s wrong? It’s not easy to find a job now. It’ll be good enough that they can stay. Also, a new batch of interns are coming to the company,” Tina said and reminded Melanie, “Remember to drop by during the interview.”
Melanie hummed, but her thoughts were no longer on this.
After the meal, Yana wanted to go downstairs to buy coffee, so she left.
Melanie and Tina went upstairs. As soon as they entered the elevator, Melanie asked, “Do I have to get my resignation letter ready a month in advance?”
