Robert rubbed his forehead, looking utterly shocked. What a freaking coincidence! No wonder he was always nitpicking at Marguerite, there was more to the story.
But regardless of whether Marguerite was a sly fox or had something up her sleeve, the fact that the perfume she made could be smelled by Frederick, who had lost his sense of smell, spoke volumes about her skill.
Robert cleared his throat, offering some comfort, “I get why you can’t stand her, but you can’t deny that she’s really helped with your sense of smell. Since you can’t divorce her, you might as well let her stick around. It’s all gain and no pain for you.”
Frederick was about to argue, but Robert was already pushing him towards the door, talking as they walked. “Don’t you want to find out how on earth this woman managed to restore your sense of smell? I’m super curious, how could a bottle of perfume solve a problem that even top–notch doctors couldn’t fix?”
Before they knew it, they were outside.
The other perfumers who were interviewed had been sent off by Chuck, leaving only Marguerite and Chuck in the reception room.
Frederick was still resistant towards Marguerite. Seeing Frederick’s defiant expression, Robert walked up with a smile and told Marguerite, “Ms. Lockwood, we’ve had a chat and decided to keep you. You can start working here today, and Chuck will help you with the paperwork later.”
Marguerite looked surprised and a bit scared as she looked at Frederick. Just a few minutes ago she was humiliated and was told to leave, the next minute she could start working? This man definitely had something planned.
“Really?” Marguerite was skeptical.
Frederick looked at her, his voice cold, “Don’t think that once you’re in LuxeScents International everything will be smooth sailing. You’re just an intern now, on probation for three months. If you don’t perform well, you are out.”
Marguerite was frustrated. What’s wrong with this guy? Couldn’t he speak nicely? Why keep her if he was so hostile? Ridiculous!
She wished she could turn around and walk away, but she really needed this job. She had nothing, not even a place to live. Plus, her grandma was sick and needed medication, she needed to earn money!
So, Marguerite put on a brave face, “Don’t worry Mr. Winston, I’ll focus on my work.”
“You’d better be. If I find you slacking off, I’ll make sure you won’t find a job in this industry.”
Seeing the two about to bicker again, Robert quickly stepped in, “I trust in Ms. Lockwood’s professional skills, she’ll definitely pass the probation. period. Also, the company offers a good salary. Do you have any other needs, Ms. Lockwood?”
Marguerite breathed a sigh of relief, finally, they brought it up. But would Frederick agree to her request? Well, she had to give it a shot.
With this in mind, Marguerite plucked up the courage to look at Frederick, “I only have one request. You guys. have to sort out my accommodation.”
