Melanie did not think that anything was wrong at first. It was not until she received weird glares that she realized that something was wrong.
Since she was used to doing her own thing, she did not care much about it.
When she went to the HR department in the afternoon, she happened to meet Julie.
Julie and Melanie had never gotten along with each other.
Julie cast a sidelong glance at Melanie, then smiled and said to another colleague, “This is the first time I’ve heard of someone mimicking a car accident just to get Mr. Scott’s attention. How shameless!”
Melanie paused slightly, raised her eyes, and looked straight at Julie.
Julie was fearless. She took her things and raised her chin before she left.
The other colleague looked at Melanie awkwardly. Melanie asked bluntly, “What’s the rumor going around this time?”
Melanie was not stupid. She guessed from Julie’s attitude and words that it had something to do with her presence at the hospital last night.
In fact, her guess was right.
Early in the morning, a rumor that Melanie wanted to fight for Eugene’s attention by imitating Viola spread in the company.
The colleague briefly explained the situation.
Melanie also caught the disgust in her eyes.
After that, Melanie thought about it and went to Eugene.
When she went to the president’s office, Viola was holding a box of dessert with a sweet smile on her face. The colleagues around Viola were all cheerful.
As soon as Melanie entered, everyone stopped smiling. Viola was the first to react. She asked, ‘ Melanie, do you need something?”
Melanie glanced at her and kept walking. “I’m looking for Eugene.”
Melanie’s voice was cold, so Viola did not stop her.
Julie sneered from the side. “Look at her. She still thinks that she has power around here.”
Viola tried her best to hide her smile. “Julie, don’t say that. Melanie has always had a special relationship with Eugene.”
When Melanie opened the door and entered Eugene’s office, he was not busy.
“My grandpa sprained his ankle when he was hit by an electric bike on his way back to the nursing home.” Melanie said it all in one go with an expressionless face.
Eugene raised his eyes. “So?”
“Will you visit him? He asks about you often.”
Melanie said it calmly. Only her clenched fists showed how nervous she was.
Eugene looked at her and said nothing for a long time.
Melanie took a deep breath and added, “You don’t have to go.”
“Why should I go?” Eugene looked at her. “Give me a reason.‘
Melanie’s heart sank. She could not find a reason why Eugene had to visit her grandfather.
After all, Eugene was her boss, not her boyfriend.
Even if they used to be intimate, they were just fuck buddies. That was not a good enough reason for Eugene to visit her grandfather.
Moreover, they were no longer sleeping together.
Eugene had not slept with Melanie for a long time after he made things official with Viola.
Melanie lowered her eyelashes. Her voice was a little hoarse as she said, “I’m sorry. I expected
Eugene looked at her with emotionless, dark eyes. He repeated, “Give me a reason, and I’ll consider it.”
