Spoiled by Mr. Russell Chapter 16

They could not figure out why Lily‘s behavior had changed. Lily had always been well behaved and docile, but when she spoke confidently on the stage, they thought Lily was an entirely different person.

No signs could have prepared them for Lily‘s sudden change. She turned into a different person overnight and almost ruined MN Inc.

Nathaniel thought, ‘If it weren‘t because I could still use her, I would have killed her on the spot! Does she know about Mel and me? Is that why she changed so drastically? That‘s impossible! If she had known about us, she would‘ve made a fuss, right? Instead, she had no reactions, which is not normal for a woman in such a situation.‘

The sight of Melanie and Nathaniel boiling with anger but trying their best to suppress their emotions was hilarious to Lily. Initially, Lily planned to shed all her pretenses. She did not sign any contract with MN Inc. anyway, so she could leave with all her things as she wished.

However, she did not expect Melanie and Nathaniel to continue with their acts in front of her. Did they honestly think she was an idiot? Did they genuinely think they could have persuaded her to continue working in MN Inc. even after all the things that happened yesterday? Lily may be a little naive, but she was no fool.

“They said…” Lily deliberately dragged her words out to create suspense for the shameful couple. She paced forward slowly with her head bowed low. It looked like she was in a dilemma.

Behind Lily stood Melanie and Nathaniel, who shared looks as if to say, ‘We were right. Someone was using her to get to us.’

‘Is it nice to let someone toy with you like this? This is only the beginning,‘ Lily thought. In mere seconds, Lily decided she would act with them and put on the most incredible show ever. ‘They enjoy acting in front of me, don‘t they? They seem to be pretty good at it too. If that‘s the case, let‘s see the show through to the end!‘ Frustration filled Melanie while she looked at Lily and listened to her speak hesitantly. Yesterday‘s incident was infuriating enough for Melanie. To Melanie, she would have won the award gracefully and made headlines if it were not for the scene Lily created.

Melanie still managed to make the headlines today. Still, it was full of photos of her passing out, accompanied by harsh words that insinuated she plagiarized and stole another person‘s creation. It was all because of Lily that such a thing happened to Melanie. At least, that was what Melanie believed.

However, it was not the right time to turn against Lily now. With this thought, Melanie stepped forward to stop Lily. “Lily, tell us quickly! What exactly did they tell you? If you don‘t tell us, I will look for them. It‘s terrible etiquette in the business world to bad–mouth another company just for their benefits!”

Melanie said that but did not look like she would take action anytime soon. As she blocked Lily‘s path, Lily stopped and abruptly looked up. Lily no longer hesitated and babbled, “They said…“
