Eugene looked at Melanie again and left without saying anything.
Melanie looked at his back, pursed her lips, and went to the hospital with Stephen’s help.
It was not until Melanie was waiting to collect her medicine in the hospital that she finally knew why Eugene came by to see her.
Stella posted about the Scott family’s dinner party that night on social media.
Eugene did not have a close relationship with his family, so he was always not bothered to get involved in anything relating to his family. Thus, he always got Melanie to attend in his stead.
Melanie put down the phone and looked at her swollen ankle with mixed feelings. ‘Eugene only thinks of me when he needs me.‘
Melanie did not have any fractures, so she only had to apply some ointment and was cleared to go home.
Stephen went out to buy a pair of flats for her and sent her home.
Since Melanie’s foot hurt when it touched the ground, Stephen insisted on sending her home regardless of her objections.
When he left, Stephen opened the door just in time to catch Eugene going into his apartment.
Stephen paused and said hello to him.
Eugene looked at Melanie’s door, which was still ajar, and sneered.
Stephen frowned and somehow said, “Eugene, Mel is injured.”
Eugene paused while opening his door. “Didn’t you take her to the hospital?”
Stephen calmed his emotions and said, “You shouldn’t treat her like that. You two…”
He stopped mid–sentence because he was a little confused about how he should describe the relationship between Eugene and Melanie.
Melanie had undoubtedly been with Eugene the longest. However, Eugene had never really acknowledged her as his girlfriend.
Stephen slowly frowned, shook his head, and repeated, “You shouldn’t treat her like this.
“She is not my girlfriend.” Eugene opened the door and said nonchalantly, “I have no obligation to take responsibility for her.”
After he finished speaking, the door behind Stephen closed gently, which made a thud in the quiet corridor.
Melanie saw that the door was ajar and thought that Stephen had forgotten to close it, so she went to close the door. However, she did not expect to hear Eugene’s voice.
She accidentally slipped and pushed the door shut.
In fact, Eugene was right.
Melanie was not his girlfriend. He never admitted it, and she never asked.
Even if she did ask, it would be pointless.
Melanie’s ankle no longer hurt by the third day.
On that day, the activities for LeapCo’s team–building event were finalized.
Melanie saw the activities and noticed that they were similar to her proposal, except that the final game was changed.
When Yana came in, she had a gloomy expression and went straight to her desk without saying anything.
Melanie noticed Yana’s mood and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Those secretaries upstairs think that they’re superior to others,” Yana complained angrily. “I wanted to ask Mr. Scott to sign a document, but Julie and Viola didn’t allow me to go into the president’s office.”
Melanie said, “Then you can pass them the document and ask them to return it to you after getting Mr. Scott’s signature.”
“They didn’t want to, saying I must get the document signed by myself. That’s because they didn’t want to be responsible if something went wrong.” Yana had always been good–natured, but this time, she must be vexed to have lost her temper.
Melanie pondered for a moment and said, “I’ll get it signed for you.”
