And now, Viona knows so well that that’s not the case here. She knows for sure that Victor hasn’t introduced himself to Leonard.She doesn’t want Leonard to embarrass himself in front of the other employees, because that would only cause awkwardness between them later. And so, Viona ends that introduction prematurely.“Mr. Leonard! I think there must be a misunderstanding here. Should we end the introduction now?” she says.“Um, Ms. Viona?” responds Leonard in a bit startled.But those employees, who are already understanding what Viona is trying to do, decide to get back to their working desk. Leonard can only put on a dumb face with their reaction, who just leaving him that way when he hasn’t finished his speech yet.There’s still so much he wants to convey. And seeing Victor who is just nonchalantly puts on an indifferent smile while talking to Nancy, only makes him even more annoyed. It’s like putting salt to an open wound.Viona whispers to Mrs. Emilia, asking her to invite Leona
Until reaching the 9th floor, all employees from the depository, publishing and advertising department have already left. It leaves only Nancy and Victor with that new GM in the elevator.Coincidentally, Nancy has gotten a message from Mrs. Emilia Werner to come to the 13th floor. And indeed, the message was related to the arrival of that new GM. And she has also received a warning from Victor that the new GM is dangerous.Nancy doesn’t understand the meaning of Victor's previous warning. But she just follows Victor’s words wholeheartedly.Right after the elevator door closes before leaving that 9th floor, Nancy immediately moves to Victor's right side, with a slightly uncomfortable reaction on her face away from the new GM.“What do you mean?” she asks in whispers to Victor.Victor doesn’t give any answer, since there are only the three of them left. He doesn’t want to make the new GM uncomfortable.And now, that new GM, Leonard, has also started to have a bad impression on Nancy, su
Victor admits that he was the reason some executives decided to resign. And that’s what makes Viona so busy in the past few weeks.“Yes, it’s him. What was his name again? Leonard Jackson?” Victor mutters to himself with unsure feelings.But Mike pays no attention to what Victor just said. He still seems trying to hold his annoyance toward that man.Victor gets out of the car, and then Mike backs up his car a little to give room for the Bentley to get into the parking space.“That’s more like it. You should learn your place,” says that man before parking his Bentley.Mike just shakes his head a little with an uninterested smile.That man in the Bentley tidies his hair for a while before getting out of the car. He does look quite mature, maybe around 40s. But he is the type of person who is quite a stylist with a well shaved face and really cares about his appearance.Victor is thinking about approaching him, perhaps to pay a bit of a greeting to the new GM. However, thinking about wha
Victor quite understands, it's true that someone shouldn't open up disgrace or bad mouthing the company where he used to work. As a leader of a company, of course Victor also doesn't want his employees to do that to Counterbrand.With that sense in mind, he no longer forces Dennis to talk more about Laundrix Wilson. Even though Victor himself is still so curious about the bad thing that Dennis has just mentioned.Suddenly, Dennis gets up. “Would you mind waiting here a moment?” he asks.Victor doesn’t have the time to answer because Dennis immediately leaves him. Victor keeps watching until he finds Dennis heading to a car.A moment later, Victor’s phone rings. Victor takes a look, and realizes it is Mike.“Yeah?”[Just in case you don’t know, that man is working for Laundrix Wilson. And their boss have openly declared his displeasure to Counterbrand in several occasions.]Victor immediately glances everywhere, seeming to find out from where Mike is watching over him at the moment.He
Victor has been jogging for more than an hour. In fact, this is something he used to do every morning. But never again in the last two months.The last time he forced his body to sweat was when he was preparing for his wedding anniversary party and got home by running. Now, even though he has run quite far, it's been more than an hour, Victor still looks dissatisfied.“Damn! Am I getting too old for this shit now?” Victor whines as he finds himself can no longer continue to run anymore.He then reaches a wooden seat in a public park. He only sits there for a while. And then he is forced to lay his body due to how exhausted he is.In the meantime, Mike is so awry at the hideout that Victor is no longer there to be found. He checks on the monitor, and changes the view to observe the situation around that building. He still finds Victor’s car there, but not Vict
In fact, none of them, those watchers, are married. Although some of them are already past their thirties.They know the risk of their work. And indeed Charles William himself deliberately chose people who really have no attachment to others like a normal life in general.“I think you should stop showing your concern for your ex-wife. That’s if you really care about her. If they know you are still showing your concern like this, there will be a risk that they will use her to lure you out,” explains Mike.It’s effective to invite Victor’s attention. He finds Mike’s explanation is so reasonable.But it seems that Victor is still objecting to such conditions. Because it means, he does not only have to cut off the relationship with Emma, but also with all the people he cares about.He starts thinking that he is not ready, and will never accept that kind of life. He can't understand, what’s the meaning of being someone in front of so many people’s eyes, if you can’t be someone to the peopl
When entering the locker room, there are still a few other nightclub female employees there. Their attention is diverted by the arrival of Emma and Judy. The more so on Judy who looks so young in their eyes.Even though Judy is already 21 years old, her face still looks so fresh and naive, like the face of a teenager. Likewise with her appearance that looks so simple and modest, almost looks like a tomboy. But it’s only on her appearance, not the way she behaves.It’s because she has left home since she dropped out of school, leaving high school as a sophomore. And so far, she has lived independently in a mediocre life.“Maria! Is she working here too?” asks one of them, to the girl who takes Emma and Judy to that locker room, seeming to ask about Judy.“Yeah, she is,” replies that girl named Maria.“Damn! What’s in their minds, letting a kid like her to work in a place like this?” whispers the other one to her friends.Despite the girl saying it in a whisper, Judy is still able to he
Victor’s face begins to look so dark, realizing that his situation is not that simple. He never thought the town he is living in is that dangerous. And Jimmy notices the awry in Victor's face. “Listen! Some of their leaders and members have indeed been imprisoned at this time. Some have already died in jail. But that doesn't mean all their business and activities have completely stopped. It could be one of them who attacked you. Indiana is not as peaceful as how it looks,” says Jimmy, telling Victor like he is giving him some kind of warning. Without Victor realizing, Mike is already standing by leaning on his car in front of Jimmy’s office for quite a while. Victor is a bit startled when he suddenly finds him there. Victor also notices a minivan across the street, being parked a bit further away from his car. It seems like Mike has been waiting there for him for some time. But somehow, he just silent there, letting Victor alone with Jimmy, not wanting to disturb them. “Who is he?
