Melanie paused. “You took the photo?”
“I took the photo casually.” The young man felt embarrassed because this was an invasion of privacy. Moreover, he also saw Eugene taking Melanie out of the private room.
However, the man did not think about the consequences when he sent out the picture in the group chat.
He only felt bad about it when he heard a lot of unpleasant rumors about Melanie.
“My name is Joshua Hewitt.” The man scratched his head and continued, “I just feel bad about what I did, so please let me know if you need any help.”
Melanie said nothing. She looked at Joshua and remembered that he was the guy who had asked her to close the private room door that night.
Joshua was too embarrassed to stay longer, so he apologized again and left.
Melanie looked at Stephen, who had been silent this whole time. “Do you have anything to say to me?”
“Are you okay?” Stephen’s gentle voice was filled with concern. “The recent events…”
Before he finished speaking, Melanie interrupted him. “It didn’t affect me.‘
Stephen looked at her helplessly and said, “Shall we have dinner together tonight?”
Melanie and Stephen stayed in the reception room for a while. Just as Melanie was about to go back to the office, Yana came over in a hurry.
When she saw Melanie, she caught her breath and said, “Melanie, a client is making trouble in the secretary’s office.”
Yana looked troubled. When Melanie passed by, she realized that the client was a woman.
The client pointed at a female secretary in the secretary’s office and cursed the homewrecker for seducing her husband.
The secretary’s face turned red from embarrassment. Melanie frowned and stepped forward. ” Ma’am, please calm down. We can talk through any problems.”
The client was so agitated that she did not listen to Melanie and pushed her away.
Melanie was wearing high heels, so she twisted her ankle when the client pushed her. She almost fell, but someone held her shoulders from behind.
Stephen supported Melanie and asked worriedly, “Are you okay?”
Melanie carefully rolled her ankle, lowered her eyes, and nodded.
In the end, Eugene was aware of this matter. He came downstairs when Melanie had just calmed the client down.
Eugene glanced at Melanie and asked Viola to take the client to the reception room.
When Viola passed by Melanie, she intentionally lowered her voice and said, “Melanie, I know you’ve been in a bad mood recently. But if there are any problems, you should have called the
Although Viola lowered her voice, the office was so quiet that one could hear a pin drop because no one was talking.
What else could Melanie be upset about recently?
Viola was referring to that picture of Melanie and Frank.
At the mention of this, everyone turned to look at Melanie strangely.
Someone took advantage of the situation and whispered, “Sigh… Her subordinate is just like her. If she used her body to get to her position, how can we expect her subordinate to be any better?”
Stephen did not leave. He frowned and glared at the person who spoke. Then he looked back at Melanie and asked, “Do you want to go to the hospital?”
Just as Melanie was about to refuse, he said, “You sprained your ankle, so it’s better to get it checked out.”
Melanie was stunned. “How did you know?”
Stephen’s tone was gentle and soft. “Don’t be so stubborn.”
Melanie said nothing, but she had already reached for her bag, showing her agreement.
Eugene, who had turned back, happened to see Stephen supporting Melanie and holding her bag.
He paused slightly and looked down at Melanie’s right ankle.
Melanie also saw him, but she waited for him to speak.
Eugene looked at her with dark eyes. “Did you get injured just now?”
“Yeah. I got pushed.”
