Chapter 124 Unsettled
“Find a way to build a rapport with Elisa Benett!”
“Make sure you show up wherever Elisa Benett goes!”
At this moment, Linda was still at home. She had waited for Gareth the whole day but he didn’t ask her out for lunch.
It made her even more resentful when she came across the recent trending topics and all of those were photos of Elisa and Carle!
She would be very glad to see Elisa hopping in and out of relationships with different men if this happened in the past. But not until she realized Gareth’s mood would get affected by learning Elisa’s exciting love life. Linda finally realized that Elisa had outsmarted her once again.
Elisa did it probably to win Gareth’s heart!
Linda gritted her teeth and didn’t know what else to do.
If she coaxed him, gave him a call, or pretended to be the big person to explain on behalf of Elisa would only backfire on her.
At this time, Linda realized she was a pawn to Elisa. It was all because of her pretence that was why Gareth was becoming even ill-tempered and unkind to her!
Linda wanted to slap herself. She was angry at herself for being so foolish!
She had been in coma for so long, she had to yield and comply to Gareth after she ‘woke up’ from the coma in order to instigate and sabotage his relationship with Elisa. Yet in the end, all her effort was in vain!
How could she let that happen?
The next day.
Elisa got up and freshened up herself as soon as the alarm clock rang.
She thought of going to work after settling Sheena’s matter.
And she hurried to the law firm after making herself a simple breakfast.
She was late to the firm. She ran into a car accident on her way to work and was tardy for more than half an hour.
All six lawyers had arrived at the firm and were all doing their work. Their faces changed when they saw Elisa.
Elisa hadn’t been back in the firm since the end of the lawsuit, and this was the first time they saw her after learning of her true identity.
Jennifer was the most uneasy one. She used to accuse and reproach Elisa of using her beauty to leech on the men.
But now, it had proven that Elisa was nothing like what she alleged her of. She was capable on her own…
Moreover, although this firm was managed by Charli, but Iris was also a shareholder as well! In other words, they were all working for Elisa, and she was the boss! But Elisa didn’t sack her for speaking ill about her in front of other people. Jennifer should consider herself lucky for that.
The past few days, Jennifer had been feeling uneasy.
Albert’s eyes lit up when he saw Elisa, “Good morning, Ms. Benett!”
Elisa, as always, smiled and nodded at him. She greeted back at him, “Morning.”
She was gentle and meek. She was humble too. The other lawyers gradually found her to be likeable. Except for Jennifer, she dipped her head so low as if she was humpbacked.
Olivia, who was sitting next to her, nudged her, “Jenn, go in and apologize to her. After all, it was you who was at fault. You can’t burn bridges with her if you want to continue working here.”
Jennifer looked dreaded and frantic, “I…”
She wanted to defend herself, but none of what she said was regarded seriously. She had no words to prove herself right. She had nothing to say.
Albert gave her a glance and said, “There’s no grudges that can’t be resolved. It’s fine if you don’t want to apologize to her. I don’t think she would mind as long as you don’t act and speak recklessly like you used to.”
Jennifer’s eyes sparkled in hope, “Really?!”
Olivia knitted her brows together, “But… Jenn… we’ve known each other for some time now and you know that I’ll always support you, but…if you’ve done something wrong, you gotta own up to your mistake. It’s a matter of your character and moral. You can’t deny your fault just because you’re afraid or unwilling to face it.”
