Xander nodded and paused before saying, “I’ll be in Jepton for some time. You can call me if you need help.”
Melanie was taken aback as she did not know what Xander meant, but she realized it after a while. It was about her change of career.
She smiled and thanked Xander before driving off.
Melanie had to admit Xander was a man of limits. He did not ask much, even though he realized something was off between Eugene and her.
It was still early when Melanie reached home. She took a bath and sat before her study table. After pondering, she took out the exhibition planning books she had bought.
It was midnight, and it was raining outside. Melanie had a good sleep that night.
When she went to work on Monday morning, she bumped into Yana and Cecilia.
Cecilia greeted her with a smile, “Melanie, good morning.
Melanie nodded. “Good morning.
They were a few minutes early, and a few
Ple were waiting for the elevator. Cecilia might
already know that she was about to get the job officially, so she seemed less restrained when she talked to Melanie.
She asked in a gossipy manner, “Melanie, I heard Viola got her job because she was recruited using the secretary’s office’s quota. Is that true?”
Melanie glanced at her. “She does work in the secretary’s office.”
Cecilia did not say what was on her mind. Viola did not look like she worked in the secretary’s office. She was more like the CEO’s pet.
She dared not say that. After all, she had heard rumors from the senior employees that Melanie had also had an affair with Eugene when she was his secretary.
Melanie did not know what was on Cecilia’s mind. They had a weekly meeting in the morning, and she had to prepare for it. However, halfway through the meeting, Viola entered with a stack of documents.
Melanie looked at her coldly. “Don’t you know how to knock on the door?”
Viola still smiled as she walked toward Melanie and said gently, “Melanie, I’m here for the handover.”
She glanced at everyone in the conference room and said, “It’s okay. Just ignore me and carry on with the meeting.”
Her way of putting things made them feel uncomfortable.
Yana was pissed off and snapped, “Miss Shaw, this is the secretary office’s meeting. If I’m not mistaken, it seems to have nothing to do with the CEO’s office.”
“It does have nothing to do with us.” Viola did not seem to care. She was on cloud nine.
After all, Julie told her in the morning that Melanie had submitted her resignation letter to the HR department, and Eugene approved it.
Although she knew about it, she did not show it on her face. Looking surprised, she fixed her gaze on Melanie and asked, “Melanie, haven’t you told them you’ve submitted your resignation letter?”
A momentary silence struck the conference room. Then, chatters were heard.
Yana asked, “Melanie, are you resigning?”
Melanie did not answer.
After pondering for a few seconds, Melanie threw the pen on the table and looked at Viola indifferently. “You want me to hand over my job to you?”
Viola smiled and nodded. “Yes.”
Melanie paused before continuing, “Miss Shaw, I doubt Mr. Scott sent you to take over my job. I don’t think someone who doesn’t know simple manners and the company’s rules could take over the secretary’s office.”
