In the blink of an eye, it was already the end of the month.Atlanta had the first snow of the season.Snowflakes scattered on the road, which made a beautiful scenery. However, it was a pity that the snow plow trucks quickly cleaned up the roads.It was gone before Selena had time to appreciate it.As Selena expected, Eric was indeed avoiding her.Since that night, Eric did not show up again.Selena had a period of peace and quiet until Mitchell rushed over one afternoon with a bag of desserts in his hand as a gift.Selena greeted him happily.“Mr. Crawford, why are you so polite? It’s been a long time since we met! Let me get you a drink on the house!”“No, Ms. Nelson. I still have to drive. I just bought this along the way. Otherwise, it’s not appropriate for me to come empty-handed.”Mitchell handed over the dessert.It was a well-known dessert store. Mitchell specially chose a popular bakery and ordered the sugar-free version.Selena was touched by his thoughtfulness.
Ferguson Corporation.Selena did not have to register or make an appointment to meet Eric because Mitchell personally brought her in.Due to this, many people secretly paid attention to Selena.Selena was beautiful and had a good temperament, and Mitchell personally brought her here, so it was not hard for her to become the center of attention.Soon, word spread throughout the company.Selena did not notice this because she was fuming and wanted to rip that son of a b*tch to pieces!Mitchell could hardly catch up to her.Selena looked at the sign at the door and walked toward the President’s Office.A special authorized card was required to enter the President’s Office, and Mitchell had it.Coincidentally, the office door was not closed.Just as Mitchell was about to catch up to Selena, a male employee behind him suddenly said, “Mr. Crawford, there are visitors in Mr. Ferguson’s office…”Mitchell’s expression changed. At that moment, Selena was way ahead of him.Before he c
Chance, who was suddenly called out, was a little nervous and frightened that his face turned pale.“Daddy, I haven’t had time to read it yet.”Eric frowned. His eyes suddenly darkened.“Did you just wake up? I’ve finished two meetings, but you’ve slept until now?”Chance’s face was red from shame, and he pursed his lips nervously.“I’m sorry, Daddy. I slept too late last night.”“Are you blaming me for giving you too much homework that you can’t sleep at night?”Eric interrupted Chance in a cold voice.There was complete silence in the office.It felt cold and serious.Selena listened with trepidation.She felt sorry for Chance. Would Chance turn out to be a psycho like Eric if he grew up in such a depressing environment?Selena could not imagine Chance, who looked very much like Eric, calling her “Auntie” with a cold face in a few years.It was a scary sight.Selena coughed to interrupt the dead silence.“Eric, children his age need enough sleep to grow. You can’t let
Eric was annoyed that Selena gave up halfway.He just wanted to see what other tricks she had up her sleeve, so he asked Mitchell to get the shirt back from the bar.If Selena did not throw it away, it meant she had not given up on him yet.The result was exactly as he expected.What a duplicitous woman!Eric pursed his lips and pondered for a long time.Then, he said indifferently, “It’s a membership card. I’m just asking if it’s in the shirt. If not, then forget it. I don’t know where I lost it. I’ll just get someone to give me a replacement.”After he finished speaking, Selena was stunned for a moment and became even angrier.“You framed me for stealing because of a membership card? Is it for a facial or a foot massage? Why are you so adamant about a stupid card? Will you die if you lose it and get a replacement? Do you think I’ll take your stupid card and use it? Or is your card used for those shady places? Is that why you didn’t dare to call the police?”Selena asked in a
Selena ate a crab leg. It was so indescribably delicious and fresh!It must be freshly imported that morning.Chance happily took a mouthful of chili con carne and sniffled.Selena said, “It’s so spicy. How did you grow to like it?”Chance said with a smile, “Two days ago, Daddy asked his secretary to bring me here for dinner. I didn’t know what to eat, so I ordered this when I passed by. It was really delicious!”Selena smiled. “I think so too, but you’re still so young, so you shouldn’t eat too much spice.”“I know. Don’t tell Daddy. He won’t let me eat this!”Selena shook her head.“He’s too serious. If I was born into his family, I’d rather not get reincarnated!”Chance laughed and continued to eat with his head down.The two of them ate happily. They looked so relaxed and harmonious as they talked to each other.For a moment, they did not notice that someone was behind them.They did not even hear footsteps.The manager of the cafeteria keenly noticed the man and quic
The firefighter glanced at her meaningfully with a bit of playfulness in his eyes.“Selena, we were classmates in college for two years. You don’t recognize me anymore?”Selena froze slightly as she looked at his face carefully.She finally matched this face with a vague memory in her mind.The young boy chased her for two years, but she rejected him.At that time, Selena was still stuck in her horrible marriage with Derek Norton, and her grandfather had people watching her at all times.Thus, there were hardly any men of her age that were allowed to appear around her.This was Zachary Salvatore who fervently pursued her back then, right?In an instant, Selena had mixed feelings.Why did Zachary look so different from before?She did not pay much attention to him before, but he was so hot now!Selena thought to herself and felt regretful.After Zachary checked the fire hydrant, he went to see the fire extinguisher.However, his face was solemn as he put the fire extinguish
Zachary paused. He looked a little annoyed and helpless.“My boss saw me, so it’ll be rude if I don’t go.”Right.Selena thought about it and nodded.Just as she was about to leave with her bag, Zachary suddenly reached out to stop her. He asked with probing eyes.“Selena, what’s your relationship with Eric Ferguson?”“He’s just an acquaintance.”Zachary nodded and smiled.“Right, it’s quite amazing that you get to know such a big shot. I heard that Eric Ferguson is the most eligible bachelor in the elite circle. His minimum standard for a partner is a Ph.D. holder. Some can’t even make the cut!”Selena listened and felt slightly uncomfortable.Zachary glanced at Selena and smiled.“But he’s not good enough for you, Selena. Everyone knows how beautiful and smart you are!”The gloom in Selena’s heart was swept away, and she nodded happily.When the two of them went into the private room, everyone was already there.There were two other empty seats reserved for them.One w
Selena yelled, “Hah! I didn’t count on you. I shouldn’t have wasted my time at that dinner tonight. If I had dinner with my college junior, this matter might have already been resolved!”She was regretting joining Eric’s dinner.Although it was a rare opportunity to eat with such big shots, this did not affect the closing of her bar.What did she gain from it?Nothing at all.Eric frowned. His face was extremely gloomy.“Can he solve it for you? Hah…”Selena turned her head away and refused to say another word to him.The silence along the way made the driver in front extremely uneasy.This was the first time the driver saw Eric sending someone home, yet that person dared to argue with him.More importantly, Eric did not even kick her out.It was really strange.They finally arrived at the bar.The driver stopped the car, and before he got down to open the door for Selena, Selena already pushed the door open and got out of the car.The bar was closed for the past two days
