Lily sat down and looked up at Olivia. “Liv, if you must choose between MN Inc. and me, which one would you…”
“I’ll choose you!” Olivia said without hesitation, interrupting Lily even before she could finish her words.
Her answer stunned Lily for a moment before a smile appeared on her face.
It would be great if Olivia could continue working at MN Inc. as the company offered a decent salary. Olivia was a hot-tempered person, and she disliked any complex social interactions, so working in this lab suited her the best as she had a profound knowledge of perfumery.
Lily could not stay in MN Inc., but it would affect Olivia regardless of Lily’s choice. Lily felt awful because of it. However, Lily did not expect Olivia to choose her with so much certainty.
“Maybe I did gain something from working at MN Inc.,’ Lily thought.
Smiling, the two looked at each other. The two needed no words to express their feelings for one another.
“Oh right. Are you really going to work at Rebirth?” Since the topic was there, Olivia asked bluntly, “Then… Can I come with you too?” Still, Olivia was cautious, afraid she might bring more trouble to Lily.
When a person job-hopped, they would either job-hop alone or with an entire team of their own. It was rare for a job hopper to bring only one person.
Plus, Olivia was still new in the perfumery industry and was only a research assistant who was not well-known yet. Hence, Olivia was unsure if Rebirth would want to take her in.
“About that…” Lily pondered as she had not brought the matter up to the team from Rebirth yet.
Alexander was the one who arranged Lily’s position in Rebirth. If she mentioned bringing Olivia over to Rebirth to Alexander, then…
“It’s fine if I can’t go with you! With my qualification and ability, I’ll be able to find another job! It won’t be that difficult for me,” Olivia said casually upon noticing Lily’s hesitation. “N-No, it’s not that you can’t come with me. I’ll talk to the people from Rebirth first. Don’t worry about it. I’ll bring you everywhere if you want to come with me.” Olivia was loyal and an excellent assistant to Lily, so Lily had no reason not to bring her along.
“When will you start working there?” “I’ll need to discuss it with them first. Plus, there are still some things I need to settle here first.”
“Is it about the documents? Don’t worry. I have backups of them on my laptop!” Olivia said. After a moment, she became angry because of this. “But they took the hard copies of our documents away!
“It doesn’t matter,” Lily said and waved her hand. “Nathaniel will hold a press conference to make me admit that I lied during the competition.”
“W-What?!” Bewildered, Olivia almost jumped from her seat, “How could he be so shameless?”
“We put so much effort and time into formulating these fragrances and perfumes. You invested all your energy and time into this. Not only did Nathaniel take all the credit, but he wants to slander you now? Does he even have a conscience?” Others might not know the truth, but Olivia did.
Lily and Olivia were the ones who did the research and experiments one after another, over and over again, just to get the results they wanted. Sometimes, they even missed their meals just to watch over the experiments.
There were times when they could only take a nap on a bench in the lab because they needed to observe the experiments, afraid it might go wrong and give them the wrong data.
The duo went through much together, and Olivia was furious when such a thing happened to Lily.
