Chapter 68 Accelerated Promotion
Terrence chuckled and did not realize that his face lit up.
“You finally want to talk to me?”
“What are you saying?” Alexa asked confusedly. “I mean, if you are available, can you come back.
and check the mistakes in the document?”
Alexa said in a business-like manner, and Terrence’s heart suddenly sank.
He thought, she called not for anything else, just to ask me to work overtime together.
“Is there anything else?”
“Do you have any?” Alexa asked.
“Alexa, you’re really good at killing the mood.”
Terrence gritted his teeth and forced out a sentence. He suddenly hung up the phone.
Alexa was confused, thinking, I’m just talking about work. Why is he angry?
After dealing with a few documents, it was already past eight. After Mina reminded her several times at the door, she finally was ready to get out of the room and eat something.
She asked the cook to get her some oatmeal, and she made some simple dishes herself. Alexa sat at
the table silently eating dinner..
Mina stood to the side and said sympathetically.
“Mrs. Ramsey, are you alright?”
“It doesn’t matter. I’m happy when I work.” Alexa smiled.
Mina sighed silently. She thought Alexa obviously did not know what had happened on the Internet.
She also realized that perhaps Alexa was pretending to be relaxed.
The huge living room was silent again. After a while, a sound came from the door.
“Mr. Ramsey?” Mina said in surprise and quickly took over Terrence’s coat.
Terrence entered the room with no look. Mina quietly glanced outside the door.
Fortunately, he didn’t bring anyone back.
He was slowly walking towards Alexa, and Alexa silently put down her fork and looked at him.
“You only eat these things?” Terrence said calmly.
“Yes,” Alexa explained. “I don’t have much appetite, and I don’t want to eat something greasy.”
Without responding, Terrence sat down at the table with his cold gaze focusing on Alexa.
Alexa ignored him and concentrated on her own food.
Mina got it and said it immediately.
“Mr. Ramsey, I’ll get you some oatmeal.”
“No thanks,” Terrence refused. He gave Alexa a look and slightly raised his head. “Alexa, you go.”
Alexa answered obediently. She soon ladled a bowl of oatmeal and placed it in front of him. She also moved the dishes on the table towards him.
Terrence glanced at the hot oatmeal in front of him, elegantly picking up the fork and tasting all
They not only looked bad but also tasted terrible. Terrence could not help but frown.
But he did not say anything and silently ate a lot.
“Are you free after the meal?” Alexa asked. “Can we talk about work?”
Terrence got angry. He slammed his fork on the table.
“Don’t think you’re smart. I’m not coming back for you. I have something to do.”
Alexa bit her lips, unable to say anything.
Terrence stood up and went upstairs to the study with a gloomy face.
“Mrs. Ramsey…” Mina wanted to say something but stopped.
“It’s okay, Mina.”
Alexa forced a smile and continued to eat.
In order to hide her sense of loss and fear, Alexa pretended to be okay as she focused on her phone.
It was only now that she saw the news.
She realized that he had left Brynlee behind and returned.
She thought, no wonder Terrence got so angry with just a few words.
Alexa finished eating and silently returned to her room.
Looking at the pile of documents on the dressing table, she felt troubled.
She thought Terrence was really good at torturing people.
Just as she cursed, the door was pushed open with a bang.
She looked towards the door in a little horror. Terrence stood at the door as if he had just been
caught in the rain, looking solemn and cold.
“What?” Alexa held back her anger and asked calmly.
Terrence walked over without saying a word and took away all the documents on her desk.
Before he left, he said impatiently.
“I need it. Why are you taking it?”
She thought, didn’t you throw it to me?
Alexa frowned, cursing Terrence in her mind.
She thought, I really want to beat him up!
What a horrible boss!
The work burden was suddenly reduced, and Alexa took a bath and relaxed. She was propped up in
the bed, reading.
However, she could not read any of the words in the book. Her mind was filled with the news she
had just seen.
This was clearly not the first time she acted like that, but she still felt upset because of these things.
Alexa did not understand why.
She knew that Terrence did not love her, but when he openly showed his love to others, she would
still feel uncomfortable.
Alexa picked up the phone in frustration and clicked the news again, seriously looking through the
As she expected, everyone was giving good comments, and some even guessed that they had married secretly.
Terrence who had always acted like a good man had never been involved in any scandals or gossip.
Therefore, everyone trusted him very much. They even made up romantic love stories for him.
Alexa clutched her collar, suddenly threw away his phone, and rushed into the bathroom, spitting out everything she had just eaten.
Leaning weakly against the wall, Alexa rested for a long time before she figured the whole thing
She thought, isn’t Terrence doing this to chase me away?
Alexa thought she was not a shameless person, and since he was clearly chasing her away, she
decided not to fake it.
She contacted the lawyer overnight to draft a divorce agreement again, preparing to hand it to
Terrence the next day.
But Terrence left home very early, and Alexa did not have the chance to meet him.
She had to take the divorce agreement to the company again. But she had too much work to do, and she was busy all morning and forgot about it.
“Alexa, good news.”
Tiana called out to her, and then clapped her hands.
“Everyone, calm down. I have something to announce.”
Then, Tiana took out a document from the folder.
“After the recent assessment of everyone’s working efficiency, the higher-ups have already
decided on the position of chief secretary.”
The entire office fell silent in an instant.
The chief secretary of the president’s secretary office was a very high position!
It not only meant the promotion and higher salary but also the opportunity to directly work with
If working hard, the chief secretary might become one of the higher-ups.
Everyone was thinking about this, and only Alexa stood alone on the side, panicking.
She was thinking, why did Tiana … say to me just now?
“Congratulations to our new member, Alexa. She got an accelerated promotion!”
This came as a shock.
Everyone paled with astonishment at the news.
Alexa was so stiff that she could not even force a smile.
