John looked in the direction Lesly pointed and saw a woman in her mid-twenties walking over. She’s a beautiful woman in a tight work suit, her soft black hair tied up and a pair of black glasses resting on her beautiful face. Her face looked slightly stern, but as she was making her way through, her hips swayed, which made her look sexy.
“She is so beautiful, right?” no wonder people turned around to look at her.” John finally understood everyone’s reaction.
“Hey, isn’t she beautiful?” Lesly winked at John and whispered.
“Yes she is.” John nodded.
Lesly continued with a small sigh, “That’s Manager Angie Tan, the general manager of the human resources department of our company. At the same time, she is also the CEO’s best friend; they are very close with each other. Manager Tan is also a famous beauty in our company, she’s ranked second, only ranked below our CEO. I’m curious about how many people would want to pursue her. She is still single until now. You mesmerize her beauty too?” Lesly suddenly asked John.
“Huh?” John was still surprised by the relationship between Angie and Andrea that he did not manage to come to his senses for a moment. He then shook his head and said, “No, I’m not.”
“What? Are you kidding? There’s no need to pretend. You like her too, like every other man here.” Lesly half-jokingly said.
John sighed softly and said, “Well, I’m married, so it’s impossible.”
“Ah, you are married. I did not expect that?” Lesly looked at John in surprise.
“I know someone like me is impossible to have a wife, right?” John smiled.
“No, I didn’t mean that. I just think you are still young.” Lesly said and then sighed, “I’m curious about your wife. Will I have a chance to get to know her? Is she in the province too or are you with her here in the city?”
“You already know each other,” John said quietly in his heart, but instead, he smiled and replied, “Of course you will!”
Following Angie’s departure, the cafeteria gradually resumed its normal state of hustle.
However, soon after, the cafeteria fell into complete silence once again. John turned his head around and saw somebody who made him frown. A man in a suit, with his hair slicked back, wearing a pair of gold-rimmed glasses, walked in with a hint of arrogance in his steps. This man was none other than the man in the Mercedes-Benz who scolded him at the entrance of the company this morning.
“So he works here too?” John frowned.
“Do you know Secretary Lim?” Lesly looked at John.
“He is Anthony Lim, our CEO’s secretary, and he is highly valued. He, together with Manager Tan, is regarded as the right-hand man of our CEO, and both of them hold high positions in the company too. As far as I know Mr. Lim graduated from a well-known university and he is very good-looking. He is actually the prince charming for most of us.” Lesly said with affection, “However, it seems that he is not interested in ordinary women; he is instead devoted to the CEO.”
“He likes Andrea!” Hearing this, John felt unhappy for no particular reason. The look he threw at Anthony was filled with dissatisfaction towards that man. Lesly did not notice the change in John’s emotion and continued, “Ma’am Andrea is young and her future is promising, and she is so beautiful. It is normal for Mr. Lim to fall in love with her. There are also many colleagues in our company who think that they are suitable for each other. They are indeed a perfect match. They are both rich and famous too.”
“I don’t think so,” The words came out of Fade’s mouth unexpectedly. Right then, Anthony happened to pass by John. Although they were separated by two rows of seats, John was still able to smell a faint fragrance coming from him.
“That smell—” Suddenly, something came across John’s mind. His face turned cold and he frowned.
“John, what’s wrong with you? Are you okay? What smell are you talking about?” Lesly finally noticed John’s strange behavior.
“Nothing, I’m fine.” John shook his head as he put down his Spoon and Fork before standing up and said, “I’m full. I’ll go first.” He then quickly went inside an elevator and pressed the button for the top floor.
On the top floor, as soon as John walked out of the elevator, he quickly walked to the president’s office. At the door, a receptionist saw John and was stunned by his presence for a moment. Then she stopped him immediately, “Wait! What are you doing here? Who are you?”
“I am here to see the CEO,” John said to her.
“Do you have an appointment?” The secretary looked at him suspiciously.
“I am a staff here and I have something urgent to report to the CEO.” John said.
“Staff?” The receptionist was even more suspicious after hearing this.
“Yes, my name is John, Doctor John Suarez. Today is my first day working in the medical department,” he said hastily.
The receptionist flipped through the information of workers that she had and confirmed John’s identity, but she still insisted on stopping him, “I’m sorry, it’s break time now. If there’s something you would like to report to the CEO, please do come again in the afternoon.”
“No, I have urgent matters to discuss to the CEO,” John said hurriedly.
“I’m sorry. Without an appointment, you can’t talk to the CEO. So please make an appointment first before going here.” The receptionist said firmly.
John got really anxious. Without thinking any further, He shouted directly at the CEO’s office, “Andr — CEO Cristobal, It’s me John. I have something to tell you!”
“Hey! Stop!” The receptionist is shocked. She picked up the phone and was ready to call the security guard. In the nick of time, a voice is heard from the CEO’s office, “Let him in, Suzy.”
The receptionist was stunned for a moment and put the phone down. John entered the office upon hearing Andrea’s command.
In the office, dressed in formal business attire, Andrea sat behind a huge solid wooden desk and stared at John coldly.
“CEO Cristobal, I—” John started his sentence but before finishing his words, He was interrupted by Andre’s cold voice.
“The things that I’ve just told you in the morning, have you already forgotten about it?”
“No, but I have something urgent to tell you,” John said in a hurry. Andrea frowned slightly and coldly said, “Really? What is it?”
“Here’s the thing. I saw Anthony Lim when I was eating in the cafeteria just now. I smelled a special fragrance on him and the fragrance is the same as the fragrance that was on you when you were drugged the night I saw you. So, I suspect that it might have something to do with him. He is the one who put the drugs in you.”
“Well, yes. That’s it. I just want you to be careful,”
“If you are done, you may leave now.”
John was stunned for a moment because Andrea seemed not interested and then hurriedly said, “I’m not lying. The smell is similar. I’m sure that Anthony must have something to do with it.”
“Shut up! That’s enough!” Andrea shouted coldly and looked at John. Shaking her head, “I’m very disappointed in you. It’s only your first day in the company and you’ve already started making a mess.”
“N-No I’m not.” John tried to defend himself.
