lt;pgt;Since Jenny asked Lily all those questions out of concern, Lily did not feel annoyed and allowed Jenny
to finish her words. However, she felt that it was inappropriate to tell Jenny about her relationship with
Alexander right now. That was something she had to keep from Jenny, and she made a mental note to
apologize to Jenny one day.
lt;pgt;“Don‘t worry. My friend isn‘t from here. He‘s here on business too, so we agreed to meet,” Lily paused
before continuing, “We inét that late because he was only available then. We were both busy with work
during the day, so...” Although her excuse sounded a little fake, it was much better than getting lost
during her night run. Jenny nodded thoughtfully, but something hit her suddenly. “Your friend is a guy?”
lt;pgt;Lily did not know how to respond, but her expression answered Jenny.
lt;pgt;“Is he your boyfriend?” Jenny continued.
lt;pgt;Lily just said, “I guess?” ‘He has been my husband since we registered our marriage, and a husband
had to go through being a boyfriend before that. They‘re the same anyway.‘ “Oh.” Jenny let out a sigh
of relief, looking like all the burden had been lifted off her shoulders. Lily found it funny that Jenny
reacted this way and asked, “Why do I feel you‘re happy about me having a boyfriend?”
lt;pgt;Jenny looked just like a mother who had been waiting for her daughter to get a boyfriend. “You‘re right.
Since you have a boyfriend, then you probably wouldn‘t...” She stopped and did not finish her words.
Jenny‘s hesitant look reminded Lily of her unfinished words during yesterday‘s sampling session. It was
like this yesterday too, and she appeared to have brought up a challenging topic. Lily did not think
much about it yesterday, but since the topic came up again, she asked curiously, “Wouldn‘t what?”
lt;pgt;“Forget it. It‘s all baseless gossip,” Jenny said, waving her hand. She felt embarrassed that she had
believed those rumors before. However, Lily could guess what Jenny wanted to say, even if the latterlt;/pgt;
lt;pgt;decided to stay silent about the matter. “You mean to say that I could only get into Rebirth because I
have connections with someone from the company‘s management team, don‘t you?”
lt;pgt;“N–No! I didn‘t say that at all,” Jenny quickly explained.
lt;pgt;Lily replied smilingly, “I know it‘s not you, but that‘s probably what everyone in the company is saying.”
lt;pgt;“Not entirely!” Since the topic came up, it was pointless for them to beat around the bush. Jenny said,
“Mr. Will told me we must keep you here at Rebirth, but the other employees know nothing about this. I
eventually learned that you have the skills and talent to be a great perfumer, but I have to be honest: I
thought you made it into Rebirth through your connections back then.”
lt;pgt;Lily had a light smile on her face while she listened to lenny. She understood that it was
lt;pgt;normal for others to think this way, so Lily did not want to make her relationship with Alexander public.
Lily wanted to prove she was capable and her achievements were the results of her hard work, not
because of Alexander or the Lodge family. Jenny continued, “However, I don‘t think your connections
lie with anyone in Rebirth. Mr. will is the superior one here, and I could see nothing between you and
him. I guess you know someone from La Beauté Group since Mr. Will protects you like that.” Jenny’s
words surprised Lily because she did not expect Jenny to be this close to the truth.lt;/pgt;
