Melanie was offended and snapped coldly, “Eugene!”
Eugene’s expression was gloomy, yet his voice was still cold and sarcastic. “Are you afraid of others knowing what you’ve done?”
Melanie felt suffocated, like something was stuck in her throat. She stared at Eugene briefly before turning around and saying to Xander, “I’m sorry, but can you please give us a moment alone?”
Looking at the ground while hiding his emotions, Xander grunted before saying, “Call me if you need me.”
Only when Xander left the private room did Melanie endure the humiliation and say, “Eugene, isn’t it enough for you to belittle me? Why do you have to involve others?”
“Belittle?” Eugene repeated her words and looked at her. “Is there anything about you worth my belittling?”
Melanie closed her eyes. “Please stop talking nonsense.”
“You’re still afraid to bear the responsibility of what you’ve done. This is what you always do.” Eugene’s voice was deeper. He clicked his tongue and added, “Melanie, you never disappoint me in this regard.”
The smell of alcohol filled the air as Eugene sat on the sofa. Even without observing his face, Melanie could imagine the sarcastic look on his face.
She felt it was ridiculous that Eugene said she was fake, unscrupulous, money–minded, and a bad influence. She did not even know she could be so bad in Eugene’s eyes.
The helpless feeling surged through her. Taking a deep breath, she held back her tears and said, “Is that so?”
She wanted to leave after saying that, but the private room’s door was flung open. Yvonne returned in her high heels, and behind her was a group of familiar people.
Simon was among them. When he saw Eugene, he said, “Yvonne said you were here, and I didn’t believe it. What brought you here?”
However, he soon noticed Melanie standing there and lifted his eyebrow curiously. “Eugene, why did you bring your secretary with you when you’re on a blind date?”
He did not seem to be surprised about the blind date.
They were in the same social circle and had to get married one day. Not to mention Viola, all the women Eugene had been dating were just for fun.
Simon did not care about Viola at the moment. He looked at Melanie and mocked her, “Never did I know you could be so professional.”
Yvonne knew something was off when she heard Simon’s words. She asked, “Do they know each other?”
Simon paused before explaining, “Of course. Melanie was once Eugene’s secretary.”

Melanie intended to leave and stood up upon hearing Xander’s words. However, Yvonne stopped her and took out her phone as she shook it. “Let’s follow each other on social media and hang out sometime?”
After Melanie walled out with Xander, she heard Xander say, “Oliver called just now. Are you alright?
Melanie knew he was concrmed about how she had been in the same room with Eugene alone earlier the shook her head and said, “I’m fine. I’m sorry for dragging you into this matter”
Kander did not mind. He looked at his phone and waited with Melanie for the valet to get her cat. He reminded Melanie out of concern, “It might rain later. Drive carefully”
