After Max left, Elizabeth sat in a daze for a while and then continued to deal with work.
Some things she did voluntarily, so she could only bear them alone.
The phone rang, and Elizabeth took a look, seeing it was Bob Palmer calling.
She calmed down and picked it up.
“Hey, what’s up?”
“Elizabeth, did the deputy general manager’s secretary of Lambert Group call you?”
Elizabeth finally found the email she was looking for, clicked on it, and nodded, “Already. Why?”
“Hand over the work that needs to be dealt with to me, and I will handle it for you.”
Hearing this, Elizabeth paused and felt confused. “What?”
“I heard from Kiera that you were sick. Why didn’t you tell me?” Bob’s voice sounded extremely gentle, and he sighed and persuaded, “If you’re sick, take a good rest, put your phone on the Do Not Disturb mode, and take your health seriously?”
Bob worked in the Blaine Group before it went bankrupt and was Mr. Blaine’s favorite right-hand man.
He should have had a bright future, but unfortunately, the bankruptcy of Blaine Group came unexpectedly.
After the Blaine Group went bankrupt, with his talent, Elizabeth thought that Bob would find another job, but Elizabeth didn’t expect him to join the Hart Group with her.
Elizabeth was shocked when she found out, so she asked him about this.
Bob smiled slightly and said, “You don’t think I joined Hart Group because of you, do you? Elizabeth, Hart Group is one of the largest enterprises in Hodge City and even in the whole country. There is no company
with better development prospects than here.”
He was not wrong. Elizabeth couldn’t refute it.
While being unable to refute, she was also embarrassed to think too much of herself anymore. Even though
her father had said before they went bankrupt that he would be a matchmaker for her and Bob,
how did Bob answer at that time?
Bob looked at her tenderly and smiled softly, “Elizabeth is still too young. Let’s talk about it later.”
Later, Bob treated her very well, taking care of her thoughtfully like a big brother, and the way he looked at her
became more and more different.
What he was thinking.
Elizabeth was very clear.
It was a pity that her heart was
with someone else.

How could there be so many couples deeply attached to each other in this world?
Thinking of this, Elizabeth came back to her senses and calmly rejected Bob’s kindness.
“I got this, Bob. It’s just a small issue. I’m fine now.”
Bob, on the other end of the phone, was silent for a moment and sighed, “Elizabeth, are you so distanced
from me now?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth was stunned.
Bob continued to say, “Let’s not say that Mr. Blaine was kind to me before. Even if we get rid of these things, now we are both working at Hart Group. Isn’t it right for colleagues to help each other?”
Elizabeth said lightly, “Bob…”
“Or, do you think I can’t help you anymore? Or do you hate me now?”
“No.” Elizabeth denied anxiously, “You are so kind to me, so how could I hate you?”
Because Elizabeth didn’t have a brother, Bob was several years older than her, and he was so kind to
for so many years, Elizabeth had always regarded Bob as her elder brother.
How could it be possible for her to hate him?
So when Elizabeth denied it, her tone was a little anxious.
It was probably her attitude that pleased Bob, and he chuckled softly on the other end of the phone with deep
and sweet laughter.
“Since you don’t hate me, then hand your job over.”
Elizabeth pursed her red lips lightly and finally nodded.
“Okay. Thank you for helping, Bob. I will treat you to dinner another day.”
“Then I’ll remind you.”
After hanging up the phone, Elizabeth forwarded the email to Bob’s email. Because she was afraid of making mistakes, she wrote a large paragraph to explain the work content and sent it to Bob after forwarding it.
It took him a long time to reply.
“Okay, I see. Don’t worry about it. Just go and rest.”
Elizabeth could finally breathe a sigh of relief, knowing she could hand over her work to someone trustworthy
when she was sick.
Originally, she planned to go to work today.

Now it seemed that she could continue to rest at home for another day.
And most importantly, she has to pay attention to a problem.
nking of this, Elizabeth looked down at her stomach and couldn’t help but raise her hand to touch her
Before she knew it, there was already a life here.
But now she didn’t know what to do with this child.
Should she get an abortion or not?
Elizabeth’s mind was in a mess.
She took out her mobile phone and called her best friend.
“What? Pregnant? Pfft!”
At a coffee shop.
The girl sitting opposite Elizabeth couldn’t help but spit out half a sip of coffee, and her fierce tone and actions made many people in the coffee shop look towards her.
Elizabeth was embarrassed.
She glanced around and was relieved when she saw no familiar faces. Elizabeth took out a tissue and handed it to her best friend, Megan Daly while lowering her voice, “Can you stop being so loud? People are
Megan took the tissue, wiped her mouth, and nodded cooperatively.
“Sorry. I know. I was too shocked just now.”
Elizabeth looked at her best friend helplessly.
Megan stopped drinking coffee, lay on the table, and stared at Elizabeth with round eyes. She asked in a low voice, “How did you get pregnant suddenly? Didn’t you guys use protection?”
“We did.” Elizabeth took a sip of her coffee and said lightly, “It was an accident.”
“Now what? Are you going to keep the baby?”
This question made Elizabeth pause for a while before shaking her head.
Megan looked surprised. “No? You won’t keep the baby? Why? You guys have been married for so long, and I think he treats you very well. He always takes you with him on any occasion. If you didn’t tell me that you two were getting a fake marriage, I thought you guys were real.”
Elizabeth smiled faintly, “Really?”

Megan took another look at Elizabeth, feeling that her reaction was a little too flat, but because they had been friends for many years, Megan held back and asked, “Does Max know?”
“I didn’t tell him.”
“What?” Megan calmed herself down and asked again, “Then when are you going to tell him?”
Elizabeth pursed her lips and said nothing.
Megan was confused.
“What do you mean? You don’t intend to hide such an important matter from him, do you? This child is not only yours. The baby belongs to both of you.”
When talking about this, Megan saw Elizabeth on the opposite side, still looking like she was not listening, so Megan couldn’t help it, and Megan burst out what was on her mind, “What’s the matter with you? It has already happened. How can you be so calm? You are pregnant. This is…”
“Becky is back.”
Hearing this name, Megan froze in place.
And the emotion in Elizabeth’s eyes became even weaker.
“Do you think there are any points for me to tell him this?”
