Chapter 28 I Was Not Joking
“Since she is eager to divorce, I’d like to let her wish come true!
“Call the lawyer to make an appointment to go to the Courthouse.” Levi’s voice became louder and louder, and the anger in his chest had nowhere to vent.
Jason didn’t dare to hang up the phone. “Mr. Rivera, they said the sooner, the better. As long as you finalize the time, they are ready at any moment.”
Hearing this, Levi threw his phone, which was still on the line, to the ground.
Rubbing his forehead, he felt the increasing pain in his head. “Gianna… You are so cruel!”
In the building of the subsidiary of Empyrean Group in Silver City.
Gianna, dressed in an elegant office lady outfit, pushed open the meeting room door and appeared with Kaylee in front of several executives.
After Kaylee was reconciled with Gianna, she decided not to return to France. She planned to stay with Gianna, pursue their careers, and
and reopen their boutique by the way.
Gianna introduced Kaylee to the executives, “Hello, everyone. I am the general manager sent by the headquarters in Dubai, and the person next to me is the deputy manager. I hope that everyone will cooperate sincerely and work hard for better performance of the subsidiary in Silver City” Most of them were executives dispatched from the headquarters in Dubai. They had arrived a year before Gianna, and they had already developed their powers.
For a general manager position that had been vacant for so long, they had long been determined to win, but they did not expect Gianna to be parachuted in.
But someone had already found out that Gianna was once the secretary of the president of Rivera/ Group, but he knew nothing about her family background.
“Welcome, Mrs. Rivera!”
Most people were dissatisfied but dared not complain because it was the decision of the headquarters. However, someone expressed his dissatisfaction bluntly.
“You used to be a secretary of Rivera Group, and now you come to Empyrean Group as the manager of the subsidiary. Isn’t the group worried that you will leak company secrets to your previous employer?“.
When Kaylee heard this, she was about to speak for Gianna but was stopped by her. Gianna told Kaylee with her gaze that she could solve it by herself.
The person who spoke was Enrick Morgan, the director of the market development department. Among these executives, he had the most outstanding performance, and everyone thought he was the top candidate for the general manager.
Enrick was dissatisfied that the position he thought was within his reach had been snatched away. Moreover, he was even angry that such an important position had been given to a young woman with only three years of secretary experience. He felt neglected by the company. Hearing this, Gianna raised her eyebrows casually and showed a frightening smile. “This is something that the headquarters that has issued the appointment needs to worry about. Mr. Morgan, you don’t need to worry about it.”
Before coming here, she was already familiar with the information of these executives, including their personalities and working styles.
She was not surprised by Enrick’s attitude and had long expected someone to be against her.
“I disagree with the company’s decision! Mrs. Rivera, I will not work with you!” Enrick was the first to object to Gianna.
Enrick wasn’t stupid. He knew he would definitely offend Gianna if he blatantly contradicted her, but today was the first day, and he absolutely couldn’t let her condescend to him.
After all, he was a senior employee of the company, and the market development department could not do without him. He must preemptively make Gianna humble to him so that it would be more convenient for him to ask for anything later.
Gianna looked relaxed, without the tension of being threatened. A look of disdain flashed in her eyes. She pointed to the secretary responsible for the minutes of the meeting, and her voice was indifferent. “Print out a resignation letter for Mr. Morgan. I have time to sign it now.”
After that, the meeting room fell into a dead silence, and even the slightest sound could be heard. Enrick began to feel uneasy, thinking that Gianna’s words were more frightening than his.
Was it now a competition of confidence?
However, the general manager of the subsidiary had the right to appoint and dismiss personnel. When Enrick was thinking about whether to continue to be tough with Gianna, Gianna was still urging in an indifferent tone, “Have you printed it out?”
The secretary got up quickly. “The printer is outside. I’ll get it.”
Seeing that Gianna was serious about it, Enrick quickly made up an excuse to smooth things ove He stood up and said with a smile, “Mrs. Rivera, you are so resolute. I was just joking, just joking
Gianna glanced at him and sneered, “But I was not joking.”
Enrick flustered and blushed with embarrassment. He hurriedly apologized. “Mrs. Rivera, I’m sorry. I was impulsive. I will work hard with you in the future.”
“That’s good. The meeting is over.”
Gianna and Kaylee walked out of the meeting room quickly.
