Although Becky had already been rejected once yesterday, she came to deliver Elizabeth’s food again today. Elizabeth was amused by Becky’s persistence in being a good person.
However, Elizabeth did not want to expose Becky or even talk to her.
“Elizabeth, after you had a serious illness, your body must have been weak. I boiled soup today. Don’t you really want to drink some?”
Elizabeth rested her chin on her fingers and looked at Becky in front of her with leisure.
There was obviously no outsider there, but Becky still pretended to be decent. Elizabeth wondered if Becky would be tired of being pretentious.
Elizabeth simply put down the pen that was spinning in her hand and looked at Becky leisurely.
“Aren’t you tired?”
Elizabeth was asking Becky if she was tired of being pretentious.
Becky didn’t seem to understand and changed the subject. “I feel blissful to be able to cook for the person I like and watch her finish the food. How can I feel tired?”
Becky continued, “Elizabeth, when you have someone you like and someone who also likes you, you will understand my feelings. You will be willing to do it for the rest of your life.”
After finishing speaking, Becky stared at Elizabeth, wanting to see if Elizabeth was triggered.
However, Elizabeth looked very calm after hearing this, and she said to Becky, “Really? Then, I wish you your wish will be
fulfilled as soon as possible.”
Becky instantly felt disappointed.
Why was Elizabeth like this every time? Obviously, Becky was satirizing Elizabeth. But Elizabeth was so calm, making Becky
look like a clown.
Just at this moment, Kiera opened the door and came in. She glanced at Becky and wanted to scold her, but thinking of
Elizabeth’s reprimand yesterday, she said to Elizabeth instead, “Elizabeth, Mr. Eric wants to see you.”
“Let him in.”
Eric walked in, and when he saw Becky, he immediately smiled in surprise.
“Miss Gabriel, are you here too?”
Becky was flattered by Eric’s enthusiasm.
Could it be that yesterday’s meal turned him toward Becky? If that was the case, then the meal they were invited to didn’t seem
“Miss Gabriel, are you here to cook again? Is this for Secretary Blaine?”
Elizabeth didn’t know what was going on between these two people, but seeing Eric’s enthusiastic appearance, she could guess
what had happened.
Still, Elizabeth didn’t find Eric’s reaction strange.
After all, birds of a feather flock together.
According to the current trend and discussion, everyone could definitely see that Becky would be the proprietress of the Hart Group in the future. So it was normal for everyone to want to curry favor with her at this time.
Elizabeth would not blame anyone.
But the next development still caught Elizabeth by surprise.
Because Eric suddenly pointed at the food box and asked Elizabeth, “Secretary Blaine, Miss Gabriel’s cooking skills are very
good. Everyone in our office says it tastes good. Don’t you want some?”
Elizabeth shook her head, “No, I’ve eaten.”
“Since you don’t want it, can you give me this?”
Elizabeth paused, as she didn’t expect him to take the initiative to ask for it. After glancing at Becky, Elizabeth nodded. “Anything you want.”
Eric took the food box directly and then looked at Becky enthusiastically.
“Miss Gabriel, you are so good at cooking. Several colleagues in our office can’t forget it after eating it once. Can I trouble you to bring us a few more meals every day?”
Hearing that, Becky froze in place, thinking that she had heard it wrongly.
How many portions should she bring?
Eric grinned, showing a row of white teeth, and smiled brightly. “Don’t worry. We won’t let you do it for nothing. You can just say how much you need us to pay you.”
Elizabeth was confused.
She looked at Eric speechlessly, wondering for a moment whether he was trying to curry favor with Becky. Why did she feel so
As for Becky, she looked like she was in a dilemma.
How much money did she need?
What did Eric and his colleagues take her for? Nanny? Or the aunt who cooked?
Becky thought Eric finally understood the trend, but she didn’t expect him to get worse. Wasn’t he mocking her?
But the worst part was that she could not get mad.
Because she was not the hostess of the Hart Group yet.
Becky faked a smile and tried her best to suppress her anger.
“I don’t need the money. If you like it, I will cook for you starting tomorrow.”
“Really?” Eric’s eyes lit up. “Do 1 trouble you, Miss Gabriel? And will Mr. Hart disagree? Will he scold us then?”
Becky could only say embarrassingly, “Of course not. I will tell him in advance.”
“Thank you so much, Miss Gabriel.”
After this, Becky couldn’t stay in Elizabeth’s office any longer and turned to leave.
After she left, the office quieted down, and Eric immediately put the food box in his hand on the table beside him, with a
disgusted expression as if his hands had gotten dirty.
Elizabeth was puzzled.
“Who wants to eat her food? She used all processed ingredients, and she still has the nerve to say that she made them herself,” Eric said with disgust.
Elizabeth asked, “So what was your intention just now?”
Eric smiled sincerely at Elizabeth.
“I took revenge for you, Secretary Blaine. I only recognize you as Mr. Hart’s wife.”
Elizabeth did not know what to say.
She didn’t expect that Eric was a nice person. Since she and Eric were a secretary and an assistant respectively, they were always busy with their own work. Occasionally, they would go out to socialize together. Eric had a cheerful personality and was a good colleague.
But Elizabeth didn’t expect him to be on her side.
“Secretary Blaine, don’t worry. No matter what everyone says, I will support you. Don’t let me down.”
Elizabeth didn’t know what to say for a moment because she was afraid that she would disappoint him.
And what he said just now might have completely offended Becky, but fortunately, his status in the company was high. So, Max probably would not punish Eric.
However, things were still uncertain. After all, Becky had saved Max’s life.
Thinking of this, Elizabeth immediately said, “In the future, don’t do such things that benefit others and harm yourself.”
Hearing that, Eric was stunned for a moment, and then said, “Secretary Blaine, you don’t have to worry about me. I don’t think I’m doing anything risky, and I didn’t make trouble for her. She invited me to dinner on her own initiative. I thought it was delicious, and I thought she was considerate, so I made a request to her, and she agreed, so who can say anything to me?”
“So what?” Elizabeth frowned and asked, “Do you think you’re smart? How many years have you been with Max? Don’t you know what kind of person he is? From now on, don’t do such a thing again, and don’t claim that you support me.”
