In love, never say never novel read online free chapter 203

I nodded and did not continue the conversation.

When he saw me standing there, he frowned and asked, “Are you waiting for someone?”

I nodded. “I didn’t tell Ashton beforehand that I’m coming, so I’m waiting for him here.”

“Mr. Lowe, Mr. Fuller has allowed you to go up!” announced the receptionist as she looked at me uneasily.

Thomas nodded. Looking at me, he suggested, “Mr. Fuller is probably busy. Why don’t you go up with me? Since you’re in the later stages of your pregnancy, it’s not good if you stand for so long.”

I shook my head. “I’m fine. You can go up first. Mr. Crest will be coming down to fetch me. Please go ahead! I don’t want to disrupt your work.”

He raised his eyebrows and smiled. “Mr. Jared Crest?”

I nodded.

Smiling, he entered the lift without saying anything else.

Having witnessed such a scene, the receptionist had probably figured out what was going on. She immediately looked at me and apologized, “Mrs. Fuller, please don’t take what happened earlier to heart. I didn’t do it on purpose. I’m just doing my job, so please forgive me.”

Mrs. Eriksen rebuked furiously, “Doing your job? What’s your job supposed to be? You’re supposed to welcome guests and convey messages. Yet, you failed to welcome us warmly and did not even convey any messages to Mr. Fuller.”

After a slight pause, she scoffed, “It’s not your fault that you didn’t inform him. After all, we had not made an appointment. But an important part of your job is to welcome guests! Not only did you fail to do a good job in it, but you also mocked us. Why should the company continue to hire you?”

As Mrs. Eriksen had worked for George for a long time, she had witnessed all kinds of scenarios. She was thus able to retort skillfully and sharply.

The receptionist was rendered speechless for a while. Gazing at me, she said, “I’m sorry, Mrs. Fuller. I didn’t do it on purpose!”

“Do you think that an apology would matter much after I murder someone?” As Mrs. Eriksen had been suppressing her anger earlier, she was starting to vent it out through her words.

“Why are you acting like this?” The receptionist raised her volume. “I’ve already apologized. Why are you still being so overbearing? Mr. Fuller’s the one who has a mistress. Your own husband is cheating on you, but why are you venting your anger on others? Do you think that you can do anything just because you’re rich?”

Her loud voice attracted a lot of people. Her volume increased as she spoke, “It’s no wonder that Mr. Fuller is unwilling to have a petty woman around with him. Unlike you, Ms. Larson is beautiful and kind. You need to have some self-awareness. You probably had to resort to some unscrupulous methods to marry Mr. Fuller!”

Her words became meaner as she spoke.

Furious, Mrs. Eriksen raised her arm and was about to slap her when I pulled her back. I said calmly, “Let’s not create a ruckus.”

There were people filming us. Someone might make a huge deal out of this by spreading the videos. Suppressing the rumors in K City would be harder than if we were back in J City.

Furthermore, Ashton was trying to expand the business now. It would be undesirable for scandals to break out at this juncture.

“So, are you just going to let her bully you like that?” said Mrs. Eriksen as she furiously glared at the receptionist.

I shook my head. “She’s just shooting her mouth off. It’s fine!”

When Jared came and saw the huge crowd, he frowned and looked at me. “What happened?”

I glanced at the receptionist. Despite rebuking us so feistily earlier, she now looked quite flustered. An embarrassed look quickly crossed her face.

It was normal for people to admire talented people. This lady probably had a crush on Jared.

Averting my gaze, I shook my head. “I’m fine. Let’s go!”

When we were in the lift, Jared raised his eyebrows and commented, “You’re still coming along despite knowing that Rebecca’s here. Won’t you feel upset?”

I laughed. “I’ll feel even more upset if I didn’t come.”

Chuckling, he glanced at my stomach and his gaze became solemn. He reminded, “Your baby’s about to be born, so you mustn’t roam about!”

I nodded and asked curiously, “How did you find out that I know Rebecca’s here?”

“The receptionist looked pale. She probably said something inappropriate,” replied Jared calmly.

He was right. As expected, intelligent people were very observant.

Hence, I did not elaborate further.

The lift soon reached the top floor. Glancing at the corridor, he said, “Just walk along the corridor and you’ll reach Ashton’s office. You can go ahead first. I have other matters to attend to.”

I nodded. “Okay, thanks!”

“You’re welcome.”

While he returned to his office, Mrs. Eriksen and I walked along the corridor. She glanced at me and whispered, “Letty, that receptionist shouldn’t remain in this company.”

“I won’t intervene with the company’s affairs. It’s got nothing to do with me whether she’s working here or not. Don’t overthink!”

When I reached Ashton’s office, I knocked on the door. As no one responded, I pushed the door slightly.

The door was not locked, so it immediately swung open.

There was no one in the office. After placing the pastries in the lounge area, Mrs. Eriksen looked at me and said, “I’ll go out for a while and wait for you downstairs later. Have a chat with Mr. Ashton for the time being!”

I nodded, thinking that she probably needed to buy something.

Ashton returned soon with Rebecca following behind. When he saw me, he was surprised. “When did you come?”

“Around an hour earlier!” Although I had just reached the office, I wasted a lot of time due to the receptionist.

Raising his eyebrows, he walked toward me and tucked my hair behind my ears. “Why didn’t you call and inform me?”
