The banquet was on the weekend. Eugene said that he would take Viola there, so Melanie did not interfere.
She organized all the Information Into a document and emailed it to Viola.
Viola was a new intern who had to work and read up on the banquet, so she was a little overwhelmed.
Melanie recalled Eugene’s reminder, so she took the initiative to ask Viola, “Do you need help?”
Viola was stunned. Melanie looked at her calmly and said, “There are many guests at the Litman Manor. I have sent the list to your email. Make sure you remember everyone’s preferences and remind Eugene when the time comes.”
Viola nodded repeatedly with a flattering smile on her face. “Thank you, Melanie.”
“No problem. Don’t be too nervous.” Melanie added, “Eugene will take care of you.”
Viola’s face turned red at the mention of Eugene. She bit her lip and returned to her desk with the document.
Melanie did not say anything. She sent the information she had just compiled to Eugene’s work number.
After Eugene reminded her, Melanie never contacted Eugene through his personal number again.
sent him the document and scrolled down to realize that Eugene’s personal WhatsApp profile picture had been changed to a rabbit.
It had only been a few days since Eugene took an interest in Viola.
Melanie remembered when she wanted Eugene to change the gray avatar on his WhatsApp profile picture, but Eugene only said that it was too troublesome.
In the afternoon, the front desk called and said that a client had just arrived, Melanie asked someone to get the conference room ready and went to inform Eugene.
Eugene nodded and followed Melanie to the conference room.
When he passed by Viola’s desk, he tapped on her desk and said in a low voice, “Come to the conference room.”
Eugene’s intention to train Viola had spread throughout LeapCo. Everyone was secretly gossiping that Melanie had fallen out of favor.
Melanie did not care much about these remarks. She followed Eugene to meet the client and whispered to Viola, “Go and bring some tea.”
Viola brought over the tea. When she noticed how natural Melanie and Eugene were when dealing with the clients, her expression stiffened.
After the client left, Viola said indignantly, “Melanie, Mr. Scott, I’m going back first.”
Melanie looked calm.
Viola glanced at Eugene in frustration and turned away.
Melanie and Eugene were left in the conference room. Melanie frowned and thought for at moment before she asked, “Have you thought it through? Do you really want to take her to the banquet?”
“Why not?” Eugene rubbed his temples and said, “Get Lee to accompany me to meet with clients from now on.”
Lee was another secretary in the president’s office who had always been responsible for internal issues within the company.
Melanie understood this arrangement when she thought of Viola’s aggrieved and inferior look just now.
She could not help but sigh. “You’re too kind to her.”
Eugene did not deny it. “She’s young, so I have to protect her.”
“Speaking of which…” Eugene thought of something and said to Melanie, “You should help her pick a dress. I’ll pay for it, but tell her that she can get a reimbursement from the
Melanie never knew that Eugene could be so attentive. She nodded stiffly and replied, “I’ll ask her if she has any dresses that she likes.”
When they were about to get off work, Melanie came back with several dresses of various styles, wanting to ask Viola if there was anything she liked.
As a result, before Melanie entered the office, she heard Viola’s aggrieved voice saying, “Mr. Scott, you should just take Melanie to the banquet. I can’t do anything well. I’m afraid I’ll embarrass you.”
Melanie stood at the door and did not walk in.
Eugene said, “She’s just an employee, but you’re my girlfriend. Who do you think would embarrass me more?”
Melanie lowered her eyes.
It turned out that she was merely an employee in Eugene’s eyes. 1
