Chapter 80 It Could Only be Her!
It was a simple threat, but the six individuals in that office felt the danger behind those words.
The observers stared at Elisa; disbelief painted on their expressions. Is this the same Mrs. Benett? She is like a whole different person.
Jennifer wore a haggard expression that stemmed from fear. “I’m not afraid of you! I have evidence!”
Elisa merely turned towards her office and left.
Jennifer and the others were left in the rubble of the conflict. They stared as Elisa left the room, dignified and inviolable.
The new Elisa seemed unwavered by the obstacles thrown against her. It was like she transformed her adversity into jealousy.
Olivia deeply sighed with Jennifer’s predicament. “Jennifer, you need to watch your tongue. Although Ms. Benett is divorced, she is still someone you should never underestimate. Moreover, everyone in this firm is a lawyer. Do you really have to dig a hole for your grave in this kind of place?”
“Well…!” Jennifer muttered. She looked around for Albert but found him unfazed by the whole situation. He was calmly fiddling away at his computer as before. Jennifer was not having it and fumed, “Albert! Am I just some stranger to you?!”
Albert frowned and looked at Jennifer. At this point, he could not ignore her qualms any longer. “Jennifer, from the very beginning, I have explicitly expressed my disinterest in you. I will never view you as a lover, nor will I in the future. At most, I view you as a sister to me. Now, could you stop this constant obsession to be in a relationship with me?”
The whole dynamic between them was becoming strained.
It was obvious that Jennifer liked Albert, but it couldn’t be said the other way around. However, people around them always felt they had a chance.
But with this incident…
Now it was entirely impossible.
Now that everything was up in the air, it’s official that Albert will not give Jennifer a chance.
Olivia sighed and said, “Everyone, let’s be nice to each other. We’ve been in this firm for many years, and we should not treat our colleagues with anger!”
Olivia Walker was a lady that looked younger than her age. She was thirty years old with a fair complexion and blessed with a young-looking face. She could have passed as a student, and no one would bat an eye.
Many suiters in the past had remorse over the fact that Olivia is married with children of her own.
Another girl named Janice Cole spoke up, “That’s right Jennifer. Just because Elisa is here, you can’t just harass Albert whenever you feel threatened.”
Jennifer’s eyes were red with rage. “Obviously, I’m the victim here! But all of you are ganging up on me one by one. I have been your colleague for years, but this Elisa girl shows up for a few days and now you’re all on her side?! Has she brainwashed all of you?”
“Albert, help us out here!” Janice said in an effort to diffuse the situation.
Another two colleagues followed suit.
“Yes, can’t you see we’re trying to help you out here!”
“Just apologize so we can move on! Can’t you see Jennifer is about to burst into tears?”
Albert was about to lose his patience. “Jennifer, even if I wasn’t fond of Elisa, I would still prefer to be in her company. Now can you understand?”
Jennifer stared teary-eyed. “So, everything you said is true?”
In truth, Jennifer did not care who he liked. All she cared about was that Albert was hers. The only woman in his future is her!
