What about Melanie?
What did the eight years between Melanie and Eugene mean?
Melanie waited patiently for Eugene’s answer. Her breathing became much lighter.
Eugene’s tone was the same as before–firm and indifferent. “You know that you’re not my type.”
That was true.
Aside from Eugene’s short period of abstinence in the beginning, the women he dated were all very different from Melanie,
Eugene liked obedient women, but he did not like Melanie, who was obedient to a fault.
Melanie’s eyes were emotionless in the darkness.
Her voice was as cold as ever. “Are you staying here tonight?”
Eugene stood up and took his coat with him. “Forget it.”
Melanie did not know if Eugene meant that she should forget about their relationship or just tonight.
When she arrived at the office the next day, Viola’s desk was moved next to hers.
This position had a full view of the president’s office.
Viola greeted her. “Good morning, Melanie.”
Melanie put her bag away and noticed the delight in Viola’s eyes. She asked casually, “Why didn’t you tell me yesterday that you didn’t like the position I arranged for you?”
Viola was stunned and explained helplessly, “It’s not that I don’t like it. Mr. Scott just asked me to move over here. He said he wanted to supervise my work.”
Her cheeks turned red again, but she soon realized that Melanie was still there, so she looked at little uneasy.
Melanie felt that everyone viewed her as Snow White’s evil stepmother, deliberately bullying the pitiful Viola.
She lowered her eyes.
“Let’s get to work.”
The news of Viola moving her desk spread quickly in the office. When Melanie went downstairs to deliver some documents, she heard a lot of gossip.
Those people immediately shut up when they saw Melanie. They even exchanged glances.
Melanie did not care. She just took her things and left.
She went back to the president’s office to remind Eugene that he had to meet a client in a while.
As a result, as soon as the elevator door opened, she saw Eugene and Viola inside.
Seeing her, Eugene and Viola were also stunned. Eugene said, “I’m going to see Mr. Young.”
