“But you issued the internship letters for the other interns,” said Eugene. He looked indifferent as he continued, “Are you sure you weren’t treating Viola differently?”
Melanie wanted to retort, but she said something else instead, “I treated Viola differently?”
“Isn’t that so?” Eugene took a document on the table and threw it before Melanie. “Everyone élse’s name is on the outstanding list of interns except for Viola’s.”
Melanie looked at the list. “I didn’t create this list.”
“The secretarial department submitted this. Haven’t you looked through it?” Eugene’s attitude was obvious. He was speaking up for Viola as if Melanie had done something bad to Viola.
`Melanie flipped through the list and explained patiently, “The names of the interns were
listed according to their results.”
Melanie looked at Viola. “Do you know what I mean?”
Viola’s face turned pale. She knew exactly what Melanie meant.
The interns of the secretarial department would follow the managers to meet the clients. Only she stayed by Eugene’s side. She did not know anything and could not follow up on the cooperation with the big clients. Moreover, Eugene did not have to meet those small clients.
Thus, she did not have any achievements.
Viola bit her lip as she looked at Melanie.
She would not believe that Melanie did not do this on purpose.
It was just adding her name to the list. If Melanie wanted, she could do it.
Melanie happened to turn around, and her eyes met Viola’s. After a pause, she said, “If you want to be on this list, I can add your name to it.”
She sounded calm and did not seem like she cared. It made Viola look immature.
Shaking her head, Viola said vulnerably, “Melanie, you don’t need to do that. I know I haven’t made any achievements.”
“Alright then,” said Melanie.
“Melanie, know your limits!” Eugene seemed displeased. Frowning, he opened the folder, took a random pen, and wrote Viola’s name on the list.
He was determined to add Viola’s name to the list, Melanie looked at Eugene and took the document.
Before the door closed, she heard Viola asking Eugene in a muffled voice, “Eugene, I don’t think this seems appropriate.”
“What’s wrong about it?” Eugene threw the pen aside.
Before Melanie got off work, she received a call from Stephen, saying he was having dinner with the bosses of the art exhibition. He wanted to ask her if she was interested in joining them.
Melanie knew Stephen was trying to help her, so she agreed to go.
LeapCo might not be a good choice for her.
Melanie thought about it and calculated the money she had. It was barely enough for her to use for some time.
Moreover, if she left LeapCo, she could get some compensation.
All she needed to do was not work in this industry anymore.
Melanie sat by her desk and was in a daze.
Yana knocked on her desk. “Melanie, Mr. Scott wants you to attend a dinner meeting with our client.”
Melanie snapped out of her thoughts. Eugene had not taken her out to meet clients for quite some time.
She looked at the information in the folder Yana handed her and froze.
Her face turned pale.
