I found a silk scarf in the drawer and tied it to my neck in front of the mirror.
Then I continued to work.
I needed to find Linda to sign a document. Considering what happened between me and Herbert last night.
In fact, I didn’t really want to see Linda.
After all, Linda liked Herbert, and she was my superior.
I would feel a little guilty.
I took a few deep breaths to calm myself down.
As soon as I opened the door, there were whispers coming from outside.
“Linia, who do you think left those hickeys on Bella’s neck?”
As soon as she said that, the women outside all covered their mouths and laughed.
Linia laughed. “You don’t know, do you? Last night, I went to our company’s dinner held by the president of Wharton Group. I saw Mr. Wharton‘s personal assistant, Connor, taking special care of Bella.” “Bella drank too much last night. It was Connor who sent Bella home. No, that‘s not right. Anyway, the two of them did it. As for whether they went home or somewhere else, I don‘t know!”
After Selina and Jeremy were fired, I took over Selina‘s position. Linia was promoted to the assistant manager of Group Six, so she went to the dinner party last night. Hearing this, I frowned and wanted to go out and explain. But how should I explain it?
Should I say that I didn’t do it with Connor, but Herbert?
Wouldn‘t the situation be worse?
At this time, they were still talking “That‘s so crazy. They must have gone to the hotel!” “Why didn‘t they hide in front of so many people? Are they serious?” “Bella is really charming. I‘ve seen Connor before. He‘s young, handsome, capable, and is said to have quite a good family background. But how can he take a fancy to a divorced woman like Bella?”
“Don’t tell me he just wants to have fun?”
“Linda has been promoted with the help of Mr. Wharton from Wharton Group. Who knows, Bella might even be able to climb up to a higher position with the help of Connor.”
I knew what they would say if I didn‘t go out now. Therefore, I deliberately opened the door with great force and walked out with heavy steps. As soon as I came out, everyone lowered their heads and did not speak. I glanced at them and then went straight out with the document in my hand.
08.37 When I arrived at Linda’s office, Sofia smiled and nodded at me, indicating that Linda was inside.
Then, I knocked on the office door.
“Come in.” Linda‘s sweet voice was soon heard from inside.
Linda’s voice was really sweet. I liked to listen to it very much, not to mention men. I didn’t know how strong Herbert’s willpower was to refuse such a beautiful woman.
I didn’t know why, but after last night, I began to believe that there was nothing going on between Herbert and Linda.
I found it strange that I would believe Herbert after making out with him. Could it be that what happened last night had proven that he had suppressed for too long?
I pushed the door open and went in. “Linda, I need you to sign this document.”
Linda nodded, then opened the document and looked at it.
I looked up and saw a bunch of bright red roses in the crystal vase on the desk, accompanied by a few Baby’s Breaths. It was very elegant.
Linda signed her name on the document and handed it to me.
I took the document and said with a smile, “Then I‘ll go out now.”
“Bella, wait a minute!” Linda stopped me.
I looked up and Linda stretched out her hand to motion for me to sit down.
I thought Linda had work to talk to me about, so I sat down.
“Are you familiar with your tasks already? I see that your group has been progressing fast these days.” Although Linda was smiling, I felt a trace of sadness in her eyes.
This was no wonder. She should be in a broken-up period now, right?
“I just took over. There are still many things I don’t understand. I will get familiar with them as soon as possible,” I said modestly,
Linda nodded with satisfaction, and then looked at the yellow roses on the table.
Seeing that Linda didn‘t speak for a long time, I frowned and had a hunch in my heart: Was she going to talk to me about private affairs? “These flowers were sent here by Herbert just now. They‘re very beautiful, aren‘t they?” Linda reached out and pinched a petal.
Hearing this, I didn‘t know what to say or what Linda meant, so I could only nod in agreement. “They‘re very beautiful.”
Didn’t he say that there was nothing between Linda and him? Didn’t he say that he had completely rejected Linda? Why did he send her flower again?
What did he mean? Was he going to send Linda flowers for the rest of his life?
Although I felt uncomfortable, I didn‘t show it. “Do you know why he sent me yellow roses?” Linda suddenly looked at me and asked. Hearing this, I was a little confused. Yellow roses? I looked at Linda, who looked elegant and beautiful. Was it because her temperament was close to that of yellow roses? Or was he tired of sending red roses and had decided to change color?
I shook my head, indicating that I didn‘t know. I didn‘t understand. The next moment, Linda smiled helplessly and said, “Yellow represents sincere apology.” “Ah?” I opened my mouth wide and stared at Linda. “He‘s apologizing to me,” Linda said. “Did he offend you?” I could only play dumb. Was Herbert expressing his most sincere apology for rejecting Linda‘s love? Oh, my God, why had he never treated me like a gentleman, so romantic and so attentive? He was always so violent and strong to me. This damned man couldn‘t blame so many women for liking him. His way of apologizing was so romantic
