Hearing this, Becky was slightly taken aback.
She also thought about it. She had already hinted at it, but she didn’t know whether Max Hart didn’t understand or pretended
not to understand.
Anyway, he didn’t agree.
Becky couldn’t speak too bluntly. Otherwise, what would she do if Max regarded her as a prostitute?
Therefore, she could only bear it.
Becky didn’t answer, and her face was ashen. Elizabeth raised her eyebrows.
“You can’t call him out, so you come to trouble me?”
Hearing this, Becky raised her head subconsciously, staring at her displeasedly.
Elizabeth raised her eyebrows to meet her gaze.
“Am I wrong? You don’t really need to do these unnecessary things. You obviously hate me but still give me food. Are you trying to show your grandeur in front of him? I advise you to save yourself. If the people you like changes his attitude on you only because you are not generous enough, then you should change him as soon as possible.”
Her words truly revealed Becky’s heart.
Becky’s hands hanging on both sides clenched into fists, almost wanting to tear up Elizabeth in her heart.
Elizabeth raised the corners of her lips, showing a sweet smile. “I still have to work. If you have nothing to do, you can go.”
Becky was so angry that she suddenly regretted coming here and pretending to be generous. She wanted to satirize Elizabeth a few words, but she was afraid that she would make Elizabeth anxious, and Elizabeth would talk nonsense in front of Max, so
she could only hold back her face. Smile back.
“Elizabeth, you don’t need to be so hostile to me. You agreed to my request, and we have settled down. Now I just want to be friends with you and take care of you. After all, I’m actually your older sister…”
Elizabeth coldly interrupted before finishing the following words. “Miss Gabriel, there is one daughter in my family.”
Becky was silent for a moment, and then said, “Well, it seems that today’s food is not to your liking. I’ll go first.”
After speaking, Becky took her meal box and left.
As soon as she left, Kiera ran in and asked angrily, “Elizabeth, what is this woman doing here? Did she bully you?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth Blaine asked, “You don’t like her?”
Kiera nodded vigorously.
“Of course. If it wasn’t for her, you wouldn’t be talked about by the people in the cafeteria. So I hate her!”
Elizabeth looked at her silently for a moment, and then said, “Are you going to work in the Hart Group all the time?”
“Yeah!” Kiera said with a smile, “I like this place. As long as the Hart Group doesn’t fire me, I will always work here.”
Hearing this, Elizabeth’s face turned cold.
“Since you like this place, don’t bring your personal emotions at work.”
Her suddenly downcast face and tone made Kiera stunned for a moment, “What?”
“Do you know what kind of relationship she and Max will have in the future? Do you know if you afford to offend her in the future? Since you want to work here safely, you should keep a low-key and not show all your likes and dislikes on your face.
Elizabeth’s voice sounded stern and ruthless, and Kiera was stunned by the reprimand. She stood where she was, her eyes were a little red, and she didn’t understand that she was clearly helping Elizabeth, but why was she reprimanded?
“Elizabeth, I didn’t mean to put my likes and dislikes on my face, I just… I just don’t like hearing people say bad things about
you. And that woman…
Hearing this, Elizabeth’s eyebrows were furrowed, and her tone became more serious.
“It seems that you haven’t understood what I said, so listen clearly now. After all, you are just a small employee in the Hart Group. What is the relationship between me and you? Do I need you to fight for?”
Kiera’s tears were already in her eyes, she bit her lower lip tightly, not letting the tears fall.
The office was very quiet.
After a long time, there was a throat clearing sound outside.
Elizabeth looked up, only to find that Bob came here at some time, standing outside the door.
Elizabeth said coldly to Kiera Lynn, “Go out to work.”
Kiera didn’t dare to disobey and nodded.
When she passed by Bob, Kiera finally couldn’t hold back the tears rolling down from her eyes.
After she left, Elizabeth asked, “Bob, what’s the matter?”
Bob walked in, and then closed the door smoothly.
He looked at Elizabeth, and said helplessly, “Why are you saying harsh? Even your good intentions may be misinterpreted.”
Elizabeth’s expression was indifferent, and she lowered eyes.
“It doesn’t matter whether she interprets me in a wrong way or not. I’m leaving soon, anyway.”
If Elizabeth didn’t talk about the point, Kiera was still immersed in her own world. What if she never grew up?
She spoke calmly, but Bob paused for a while, and put the document in his hand on the table before pretending to say casually, “Are you ready to leave? When?”
Apart from her bogus marriage with Max and the matter of the baby, Elizabeth Blaine had no reservations to Bob.
She pursed her lips, then said, “The exact time has not yet been determined, but it will be soon.”
Hearing this, Bob raised his eyebrows and didn’t speak again.
Although the time has not been set yet, the word “soon” and her attitude of reprimanding Kiera today could already explain a lot of things.
He estimated that she would leave the company within a month.
It seemed that he also should have other plans.
Seeing Bob’s pensive look, Elizabeth couldn’t help frowning. “Bob, what are you thinking?”
Hearing this, Bob came back to his senses and looked at her quietly without speaking.
“You’re not thinking about leaving your job, are you?”
Thinking of this possibility, Elizabeth felt uncomfortable.
“No.” Bob smiled with an unknown face. “Don’t worry. I’m not thinking about this.”
It was not good for Elizabeth to ask him directly what he was thinking. Some questions were too exaggerated. She didn’t want to find out what Bob Palmer was thinking.
She stopped talking. And Bob comforted her softly. “All right. Don’t worry. Think about your own affairs first. Do you really plan to leave like this?”
Bob’s eyes were unpredictable.
“I didn’t mean to criticise you. It’s just that you’ve been with him for two years, and you’ll leave as soon as she came back? Isn’t it too easy of you to be bullied and easy to handle?”
Speaking of this, Bob paused for a moment. He frowned and said slowly, “Elizabeth, you were not such a character to be
manipulated by others before. Why did you…”
Hearing this, Elizabeth silently lowered her eyes.
It was true. She was helpless when it came to him.
It was not that she had no way to deal with it. But knowing that the person in his heart was not herself, what’s the point of her trying?
Max would not give up Becky just because of her. And she would not lose her self-respect for someone who didn’t like her.
