As soon as the words left her, she felt she had asked a foolish question. Why would he not know?
Being in the same company as your husband was not ideal, especially if he was your boss. Worst of all, if anything went wrong, he would find out right away.
She sighed and looked upset, “Since you‘re aware, you should also know that this was the company‘s arrangement. Since I‘m a small employee, of course, I have to obey the arrangement.”
“Why do I hear resentment in your words? If you don‘t want to go…”
Before he could finish, Lily interrupted quickly, “Who said I didn‘t want to go? I just haven‘t had the time to tell you, not because I didn‘t want to.”
“The temperature changes a lot from morning to night in Middle Valley, so remember to bring a jacket,” he replied, not wanting to continue the topic.
Lily was a little surprised. She thought he would raise a different opinion but did not expect it to go so smoothly.
Nonetheless, since the company arranged it, he must have known about it earlier. How silly of her to worry that he would disagree!
Alexander did not have any unusual reaction to her taking a business trip, which relieved Lily. With such a good start, it would be more convenient to do things in the future.
After all, even though her job was considered stable, she still had to run out from time to time to collect ingredients, find inspiration, and take part in meetings to learn the experience of her predecessors. If Lily were not allowed to attend an ordinary business trip, it would be even more difficult in the future to do so. He did not restrict her freedom, which made her like him significantly more.
“I disagree!” With his eyes fixed ahead of him, Nathaniel resolutely refused.
Melanie, leaning against him, replied with a frown, “Nate, don‘t do this! I know you‘ll miss me, but this is a wonderful opportunity. Think about it. I haven‘t taken part in these events for a long time and there‘s a sampling session as well. Mr. Moreau will join me, so it‘s even more…
“I disagree even more if he‘s involved,” After interrupting her, Nathaniel continued, “In short, this time, you may not go.” “Who‘s going to go then? You? What about the essential oils or the formula?
What about the company? Besides me, who else is more suited to go? Unless, you have someone new, and you want that newcomer to go? You don‘t want me anymore?” She immediately shouted and lost her temper, “Who is it? Is it the young girl in the office, Tiffany?
I saw you eyeing her the other day!” With a deep frown, Nathaniel reprimanded, “What nonsense are you talking about? There‘s no
one besides you. I don‘t even know who this Tiffany is.”
“If that‘s not the case, why won‘t you let me go?” She pouted, holding his arm and shaking it, “Nate, I want to go! It‘s not just for me as I‘ll be representing MN Inc. If we can open up the market in Middle Valley, the supply will be more convenient in the future.
The sales channels will also be expanded. Besides, the company is short of talent now. Wouldn‘t it be great to use this opportunity to find someone new?”
Turning his head to look at her, he saw a pair of watery eyes blinking at him. It was soft and cute, which made Nathaniel‘s heart soften.
This young lady understood him too well. She had power over his heart and always made him give in without even realizing it. His tone softened, and he replied, “Mel, it‘s not that I don‘t want to let you go. If I had time to accompany you, then we‘d go. However, I don‘t have time now and I‘d be worried if you go yourself.”
“Who said I‘d be going by myself? I just said that Mr. Moreau is coming too! He was also invited as a VIP. It would be beneficial to follow him!” Melanie said happily.
“I disagree even more because he‘s going!” His voice suddenly became louder. Nathaniel was furious, “Mel, don‘t you think he looks at you differently?”
Melanie was silent.
After being stunned for a while, she said, “Oh, that‘s not the case! I see nothing wrong with him! Besides, your mother introduced him, and he‘s someone famous, so he‘s not what you think he is. Do you think everyone is attracted to me the same way you do? I think you worry too much.”
