Chapter 193 Her Previous Seat
Taken aback, everyone looked at him in shock. “For real? What did Master Iris say?” a lawyer next to him asked.
Albert smiled. “That I missed the main point, which is the seventh point.”
“What’s the main point then?” Jennifer quickly asked.
Albert opened his handwritten notes and pointed at the seventh index. With a sigh, he said, “I wrote this myself, but I didn’t notice it, and I didn’t dive deeper into it. No matter how prepared the opponent is, they still broke the law. I landed myself into a dead end.”
Their expressions changed slightly when the rest of them saw what he pointed out. “Sure enough, Iris is impressive.”
The lawyers who worked in this law firm were already elites in their field. On top of that, Charli did not hire anyone else, because the six of them had already made their name as lawyers.
However, when they lost track of the big picture, Iris was able to resolve their confusion so easily.
This clearly showed how capable she was.
Jennifer tightened her hold on the pen in her hand. Even though she was jealous, there was nothing she could do about this situation. She kept picking on Elisa before this when she did not know her identity. Now that her boss was Iris, she no longer had the courage to bad-mouth her boss.
After all, it was already an honor to be working there.
Even though the working conditions were not as great – they did not have an office to themselves – it was a special arrangement from Charli to encourage discussion among them.
Jennifer became increasingly worried upon seeing this. Panic shot across her eyes when she saw Albert’s energetic looks. It looks like… such a brilliant man like him will fall for Elisa. What should I do in the future?
Time quickly passed by, and it was time to get off from work.
Elisa walked outside in her heels. Since she had already decided to pay Norman and his family a visit, she had no intentions of delaying her arrival.
It took almost an hour to reach their place, but as soon as she walked into the lawn, her heart jolted involuntarily.
I used to stay here! And this is the result of Dad’s hard work over the years. How could they stay here so righteously?
Drawing another breath, she got out of the car. Norman was a tactful person; as soon as he saw her, he immediately walked out to welcome her with a smile on his face. “Liz is back! Come on in, Rose is still cooking in the kitchen. There are only two dishes left, and they’ll be ready in no time!”
Elisa nodded at him as Linda walked out of the house with a warm smile. “Liz, you’re finally willing to come back here.”
What a great use of the words ‘finally’ and ‘willing’ to imply that I used to detest this place.
She did not reply to Linda; instead, she walked into the house directly.
“Let’s wash our hands before we start.”
There were already eight dishes on the table, while Rose pretended to be busy in the kitchen. Elisa did not believe that she would cook the dishes herself. I bet the maids made all of these, and Rose only went to the kitchen to put on an act after I arrived.
Nevertheless, Elisa went to the washroom to wash her hands before taking a seat at her previous spot at the dining table.
Norman was slightly taken aback when he saw that, and a look of displeasure flitted across Linda’s eyes.
She sat at a spot where the host would usually sit. To an outsider, it might look as though she was trying to take over the host’s place. But to her, the place was hers to begin with.
In the past, her father would take that seat, and she would be seated right next to him. Now that he was not around anymore, she deemed herself the rightful owner of the place.
