Melanie’s expression was calm. “It’s LeapCo’s rule, Miss Shue.”
Evelyn burst out with a laugh. She looked at Eugene. “Eugene, does your company have such a rule?”
Eugene looked up at her, and after that, he turned his gaze to Melanie. He replied nonchalantly, “I’ll accompany you later to buy that new handbag you said you liked yesterday.”
Evelyn pouted and asked unhappily, “Why can’t I listen in to the meeting?”
Eugene contemplated this and looked at Melanie. He paused for a minute and said to Evelyn, If you feel bored, Melanie can accompany you to go shopping.”
`Evelyn did not even think twice as she burst out, “Why would I want to go shopping with her?”
She clearly felt disdain toward Melanie. Melanie froze as she looked up at Eugene. However, Eugene nodded with the same flat expression as he went along with Evelyn. “It’s up to you.‘
Even though Evelyn wanted to stay, Eugene made no sign of giving in to her request. She knew it meant that he would not agree to it. There was no point in convincing him any further.
After she left the meeting room, Eugene looked at Melanie and said coldly, “Give me the files.”
Melanie had already put all the information together. However, Evelyn had pushed a huge stack of documents to her before they left the hotel, which was why her documents were now
in a mess..
It took her a while to finally grab the correct files for Eugene. Eugene got impatient from · waiting and knocked on the table with his finger. There was an unhappy look on his face. “Are you starting to slack off at work?”
People began turning up for the meeting, and Melanie could only tidy up all the documents as she sat next to Eugene.
The branch manager, Walden, rubbed his hands as he looked at Eugene with an upset
expression. “Our competitor is coming at us too strongly, Mr. Scott. We’re having difficulties with them.”
There were no emotions in Eugene’s dark eyes. His fingers drummed on the table as he said coldly, “I’ve requested your data and business use case before this, but you haven’t given me anything yet.”
Walden looked nervous. He wanted to explain but could not come up with an excuse.
Eugene’s expression was frosty. Melanie knew he was about to lose his temper. She quickly pulled out the documents he needed as she tried her best not to be the one to cause him to blow up.
and that person
Someone got nervous upon noticing Eugene was about to unleash his wrath, and that knocked into Melanie’s arm by accident.
Eugene was next to Melanie. He was busy reading the documents when Melanie knocked into him. Eugene’s documents slanted to the side.
He looked extremely upset as he stared coldly at Melanie. “Get out if you can’t do your work!”
Melanie turned pale. She quickly compiled all the documents in her hands and lowered her eyes as she apologized to him softly, “I’m so sorry, Mr. Scott. That was careless of me.”
Eugene was still in a rage even after the meeting was over. No one dared to do anything that could further anger him. Even Walden followed behind Eugene while looking crestfallen. He saw them off with the utmost humility as he kept lowering his stature and nodding.
Melanie followed behind Eugene with a stoic expression. She still felt upset about what happened. After all, Eugene had humiliated her publicly.
Since Melanie completed her internship, she was rarely chided by Eugene.this way over work.
Evelyn had been waiting outside, and when she saw Eugene coming out of the meeting room unhappily, she went up to him with a bright smile on her face. “What are you so angry about? Who offended you?”
Eugene had to suppress his anger slightly when facing her. He pinched between his eyes. “No one.”
Evelyn asked, “Are you still going to buy that handbag for me like you promised?”
Melanie was behind them and could not see Eugene’s expression. All she heard was his voice, which sounded clearly like he was giving in to Evelyn. “A promise is a promise.”
Evelyn smiled. “Get your credit card prepared. I’m not going to let you off the hook.”
Eugene laughed. It sounded like Evelyn had managed to cheer him up with her cutesy antics.
No one noticed Melanie being left behind.
They had to meet another client later, but the appointment was at night.
