Back then, when Eddie saw his boss sitting in the office and conducting a video conference while arranging a gift basket, he found it both strange and eerie.
However, what he found most unbelievable was how his boss carefully arranged the chocolates and instructed him to deliver them to Miss Grey. Though he had been by his boss’s side for many years, he had never seen him show any particular interest in a woman. So, he was quite surprised when his boss started showing interest in one with such a unique charm that he even personally arranged a gift basket.
However, Rachel’s words and actions made him see things in a different light.
As an employee, he was used to dealing with all kinds of wealthy young masters and mistresses. He was accustomed to their commanding tone and casual orders.
Even if others showed him respect, it was only out of deference toward his boss. However, he could feel that Rachel treated him with genuine respect and regard.
In other words, she did not take one’s status or position into consideration, and she simply treated him as an ordinary person.
Eddie finished the task and made his way back to the company to report about it. After hesitating for a while, he finally handed his boss the investigation report he had finished. “Mr. Jones, would you like to take a look at this?”
David lifted his gaze. His sharp eyes pierced straight into his assistant’s eyes like a sword.
Eddie’s heart skipped a beat as he realized the gravity of the situation, and he subconsciously broke out in a cold sweat. He was reluctant for a moment before he cautiously explained, “The reputation of Miss Grey is not very good, so I took the liberty of conducting a private investigation
However, his boss crushed the investigation materials and casually said, “No more playing clever!”
His tone was indifferent, yet it was sufficient to send shivers down Eddie’s
In an instant, Eddie tensed up. Realizing that he had made a grave mistake, he responded, “Yes, sir.”
It was fine for an assistant to anticipate his boss’s thoughts and intentions, but one should never cross the line and act on his own accord without the boss’s permission. In other words, what Eddie did was a major taboo.
However, since Miss Grey’s reputation was simply infamous, he was worried it would cause unnecessary trouble and a bad influence on his boss.
Based on his boss’s demeanor, he could guess that the rumors had been heard to some degree. However, it seemed as though his boss had no intention of verifying the reality.
In the quiet office, David suddenly spoke, “I believe her.”
Eddie’s pupils flickered with incredulity.
As far as he could remember, his boss had never invested any energy in the opposite sex. Miss Grey was the only one so far.
Judging from Mr. Jones’s attitude toward Miss Grey, one could easily tell that he was determined to make her his!
Thinking that he had worked for his boss for many years and had never made any mistakes, he had not expected himself to make one in the face of Rachel.
“Deliver three meals to her every day in the following days,” David said. “Don’t let your vulgar words reach her ears.”
In the following days, Eddie delivered the meals to Rachel on time.
Mary, who simply loved to watch the show, even expressed her fair guess. “Without a doubt, this man is a master.”
“What kind of master are you talking about?” Rachel looked at her friend in confusion.
“A master of testing,” Mary said with all seriousness. “You know, although he is not by your side, he is always with you. He will surely get you.”
Hearing this, Rachel’s brows twitched into a deep frown.
Now that she had accepted David’s goodwill, she had no choice but to be nice to him. Thinking about his conviction back then, she realized that she could hardly resist.
She felt that she needed to fulfill the appointment with Mrs. Jones as soon as possible as a way to repay the favor of the meals and also to clear things up with David.
She hesitated for a moment before she took out her phone and opened Whatsapp. [Do you have time today? If Mrs. Jones is available, I would like to go and chat with her.]
