Chapter 197 What Can She Do?
In the next second, he feigned surprise. “That’s great that you are willing to stay!”
Linda also pretended to be delighted when she heard that. “You are finally willing to stay here, Liz!”
Again, the word ‘finally’.
After hearing that, Elisa was positive that they were already recording the entire conversation.
In fact, she was also doing the same thing, so she was not worried about them publishing the conversation out of context.
Elisa nodded. “I avoided this place because Dad passed in this house. I was not prepared to face the truth yet. Now that it’s been a while, I know that I can’t continue to run away. I’ll be staying in his old room today. I’m sure no one touched his belongings in that room, isn’t that so, Uncle Norman?”
“Of course! His belongings are still there!”
This was one of the points that Norman was unhappy about. The master bedroom was Elisa’s father’s old room. Even though their family was currently staying here, they could not sleep in his room and could only settle for the guest rooms for moral reasons.
Back then, he was unable to buy another property using the money he inherited from his dead brother because it would seem to the public that he was squandering the money of the dead. Now that some time had passed, he was preparing to acquire a new property in a few days’ time.
Hence, he replied with a grin, “Liz, this place will always be your home. Seeing how much you miss this place, especially your father, I think it’s a good idea for me to buy another house and leave this to you.”
After all, this property was under Elisa’s name. Norman could take the company shares, but they could not take this place away too so that Elisa would not suspect them.
Now that they were overflowing with money, another mansion was not a big deal. Since this place was getting older, they were willing to relocate.
Elisa nodded. “Yeah, moving out is a good idea since this place is getting older anyway. I’ll treat this house as a token of memories.”
Norman was speechless to hear that.
Elisa is really good at spinning words around now. I told her that I was willing to relocate to leave this place to her out of goodwill, yet she said that this place is getting older, making it seem like our intentions aren’t genuine.
Rose returned to her senses and quickly beamed. “To us, it doesn’t matter where we stay. But since this place contains your cherished memories, of course we would leave it to you entirely. Even if we move out, our new place will always be open to you. Don’t be too courteous with us, okay?”
Elisa merely nodded without replying to her. Obviously, she did not want to be as hypocritical as them.
Each of them harbored their own thoughts during the dinner. As soon as Elisa finished eating, she could not be bothered wasting her breath on them. Since they had touched on the essential topics, she announced gently, “I’m heading back to the room for a rest.”
Norman nodded with a smile. “Go ahead.”
After she entered her room, the remaining three of them also went to their room. With a solemn expression on her face, Rose asked, “Dear, Elisa clearly has her own motives for entering the company. Is it a wise decision to let her join the company?”
“What’s there to be worried about?” Norman scoffed disdainfully. “She’s only going to be the most basic employee in the marketing department whom anyone could trample over. We can directly tell the supervisors there to give her a hard time to build up her endurance. On top of the marketing department, we also have the auditing department. There’s nothing to be worried about.”
Linda also let out a giggle. “Precisely. I will give her a hard time personally.”
Upon hearing that, Rose immediately nodded fervently. “That’s right. Even though Linda is not the manager in the marketing department, because of her background, she already wields the power of a manager. With her pressuring Elisa, what can that woman do about it?”
