lt;pgt;“Lily disobeyed the company‘s arrangements and joined another company, betraying MN Inc. in the
process. That is why we‘ve fired her,” Nathaniel said as he tossed an envelope on the table
indifferently. Then he continued, “You‘ve been with us for quite some time, and we know you‘re a
capable employee. Keep up the good work; we trust you will have a bright future ahead!“.
lt;pgt;Olivia looked at the thick envelope.
lt;pgt;“Open it.” Nathaniel motioned for her to open the envelope with his chin while smiling complacently.
When he tossed the envelope on the table earlier, the flap opened slightly, revealing a stack of 100–
dollar bills. Olivia knew the envelope contained a considerable amount of money without opening it.
lt;pgt;“Mr. Hall, are you trying to bribe me?” Olivia asked, her brows raised, but she did not pick up the
envelope. “What are you talking about?” Nathaniel pursed his lips, shaking his head. “This is the
company‘s remuneration to you. As long as you keep up the good work and obey the company‘s
orders, you‘ll benefit from it.”
lt;pgt;“I‘ll thank the company in advance then.” Olivia picked up the envelope and kept it in her pocket. After
all, everyone loved money. Since it was a reward the company gave, there was no reason for her to
reject it. Nathaniel subtly let out a breath of relief when Olivia took the money obediently. He believed
she was now on their side since she was willing to accept the money.
lt;pgt;“Liv, since you are the most familiar with the company‘s recent research and products, you‘ll be Ms.
Thayer‘s assistant in the future.”
lt;pgt;Then Melanie stood up and strode slowly toward Olivia, squinting and judging every inch of her.
“You‘ve been by Lily‘s side for a long time. Did you learn any secret formulas or tricks from her?”lt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;Shaking her head, Olivia said, “I‘m not smart enough, so I could only assist Lily in her work. Lily
designed all the formulas and concepts since she was the best perfumer in the company.” “Shut up!”
Melanie said impatiently, “The best perfumer, huh? You better cut that cr*p! You need to understand
that MN Inc. is your employer now and that this company is the one paying you! Lily betrayed the
company and stole our business secrets. We will punish her for that! You can continue admiring her if
you wish to accompany her in prison!”
lt;pgt;Faced with Melanie‘s rebuke, Olivia only sneered before taking out her employee ID and resignation
letter she had prepared long ago. Then she placed them on Nathaniel‘s table.
lt;pgt;“What are you doing?” Her actions stunned Nathaniel as he thought, ‘Didn‘t she take my money? That
means she is willing to be on our side, right? Is she doing this just because Mel
lt;pgt;reprimanded her a little?‘
lt;pgt;“Mr. Hall, thank you for your offer, but I‘m resigning,” Olivia said, smiling. “You‘re resigning? Who
allowed you to do that?” Nathaniel asked, his voice almost cracking from the great shock he felt. Then
he continued solemnly, “Didn’t you accept the money earlier? What are you doing now, then? Are you
going back on your promise?”
lt;pgt;“Money?” Olivia patted her pocket and smiled. “You mean this? Mr. Hall, didn‘t you say this is the
company‘s remuneration? I‘ve worked so hard over the past few years, and now that I think about it, it
was tough. Working overtime and staying up past midnight for work was my daily routine. I think I do
deserve this reward from the company. I can genuinely say I‘m not guilty of anything.”
lt;pgt;“How dare you?!” Nathaniel almost choked as he did not expect to hear that from Olivia.
lt;pgt;“Are you on Lily‘s teamn? She asked you to do this, didn’t she?” Melanie questioned Olivia right awaylt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;“Ms. Thayer, you‘re mistaken. Truth and justice are what I side with. Lily was the one who taught me
everything since I joined MN Inc. I could see how much Lily has done for the company, as I’m not blind.
I‘m sorry I can‘t team up with you two because it disgusts me!”
lt;pgt;Shooting Nathaniel a disdainful gaze, Olivia continued, “Thanks for the past few years, but I hope we
never meet again in the future.” Then she turned to leave as Nathaniel‘s roar boomed behind her. “How
dare you leave?! I will not accept your resignation, so you will be an employee of MN Inc. until the day I
accept it! Don‘t even think about leaving so easily!”lt;/pgt;
