Evelyn had been spoiled since she was a kid. Naturally, she was arrogant even when she spoke, but she did not sound annoying. Instead, it was as if she was acting coquettishly.
Melanie looked at Lee behind Eugene and parted her lips, but she did not know what to say.
Lee saw her and smiled. “Melanie, follow me.”
Nodding, Melanie followed Lee to the small meeting room.
Evelyn watched her leave as her lips curled up slightly. She looked at Eugene playfully.
“My mom called me, saying she wants to meet you tonight. Madam Scott will also be there.”
Eugene froze and looked at Evelyn thoughtfully.
That gaze took Evelyn aback, but she continued calmly. “Eugene, my mother has always said you’re smart. Other than being a little dense in Prime City, you’re intelligent.
“Marrying me will be a win–win solution for us. I don’t think there’s a reason for you to reject this offer.”
Then, she said, “Wouldn’t it be nice for us to benefit from each other?”
Eugene looked away, seemingly pondering something. He showed no emotion.
Suddenly, his gaze turned cold as he walked past Evelyn. “Send me the location.”
Evelyn said, “There’s no need for that. I’ll wait for you to get off work.”
Melanie followed Lee to the meeting room and took out the contract. “Reny told me you’ve confirmed the details with her, so we only require a signature now.”
Lee looked at Melanie as a complicated feeling surged through him.
When Melanie was in LeapCo, she had been swift and decisive, appearing as if she could deal with anything.
She could deal with any challenging task.
However, in just the blink of an eye, she had to make several trips to LeapCo just because of an unimportant contract that LeapCo did not even care about.
He would sometimes hear the employees gossip about it.
However, Lee was professional at work and showed none of his emotions.
When Melanie handed him the contract, he said, “Wait here for a while. Mr. Scott will be here
Melanie looked at him, surprised. “Is Eugene going to sign this?”
Not every contract had to go through Eugene’s hands. A small project like this only needed the signature of the person in charge.
Just as she asked, a deep voice came from behind her. “I won’t sign if you don’t want me to sign this.”
Eugene pushed open the door and walked in. His suit was tidy and clean as always. He looked
at Melanie indifferently.
After sitting opposite her, he tapped the table. “You’re the first business partner I’ve met who can be picky.”
Melanie looked at the table and said, “I’m sorry. I’m just a little taken aback. I thought Mr. Lee could deal with this. After all, such a small project doesn’t need to be approved by you.”
It was a formal response, yet Eugene’s displeasure grew. He frowned and took the contract. Then, he signed it.
His signature was clear and simple.
Melanie watched as he signed the last page and was relieved.
However, just as she thought she could leave, Eugene asked, “When are you free?”
Melanie lifted her head. She did not see that coming. “What?”
Eugene put down his pen as he looked at her. “Arrange a date to go to Hearth City with me.”
