“There’s a woman named Regina in your company. She’s a sugar baby herself, yet she’s been spreading false rumors about others. I believed this was something you wouldn’t look past, right?”
“Regina?” Vivian’s eyebrows knitted together. “How would you like to settle this matter?” she paused before asking.
Fabian said two words, “Fire her.”
Vivian pondered slightly before answering, “You do know my principles of dealing with such matters. Hence, I’ll investigate this matter before I make a decision. If it is just as you claimed, I’ll fire her with no hesitation.”
“Are you doubting me?” Although both Vivian and Fabian were no strangers, a hint of annoyance flashed across his face.
Fabian continued when he noticed she was a little hesitant, “Did you think I would slander a nobody like her?”
Vivian’s heart skipped a beat. It seemed that you haven’t changed a bit. You’re still very domineering. ”Fine, I’ll fire her since you insisted,” she said with a wry smile.
Fabian nodded and continued, “She’ll only do you harm if you let her stay. So, you should fire her now.”
Vivian was curious as she wondered how did her employee offend a bigshot like Fabian? It didn’t seem like a simple matter, or else he wouldn’t have come to me in person. Both Fabian and Vivian had known each other for a long time. Hence, they were not as uptight and restricted as other individuals in the workplace.
“What has she done to offend you?” Vivian asked casually as she looked at him with anticipation.
Fabian noticed her glance and laughed, “Since when are you interested in gossips?”
Vivian rolled her eyes and replied, “Well, I won’t press on if Mr. Norton intended to keep it as a secret.”
Fabian tapped on the table lightly with his knuckles and shook his head. She’s still as easy-going as before.
“Do you not know that I’m having an interview with your company?” Fabian asked rhetorically.
“Of course, I do. You’re always known as someone who doesn’t do interviews. Yet, you were willing to grace us with the honors of conducting your first interview. Then, you did a second interview with us which was a huge surprise to me. However, our reputation in the industry has greatly improved thanks to you.
Vivian paused before she continued asking, “I still don’t get it. Why would you grace us the honor, Mr. Norton?”
Fabian lifted his hands to touch his finger. ‘Well, you should ask Hannah. She’s an employee of your company. Maybe she’ll tell you how’d she convinced me to do the interview.” He grinned.
“Hannah?” Vivian tried to recall that name. She then remembered her conversation with her senior editor. The senior editor mentioned that she was responsible for Fabian’s interview. However, Vivian had yet to meet Hannah in person.
Vivian’s eyes sparkled as something clicked in her mind. There must be something going on between them. Or else Fabian wouldn’t have personally come and asked for this favor.
Fabian noticed Vivian who was lost in thought and asked deliberately, “Why don’t you call her over and asked her yourself.”
Vivian briefly thought about it and decided to meet Hannah in person. It’s about time I meet this mysterious woman who has Fabian head over heels for her.
Hence, she picked up the landline and dialed the number of Hannah’s supervisor. “Hello? It’s Vivian. Hannah’s from your team, right? Could you please send her to my office? By the way, Regina’s also from your department, right? Please have her collect her salary for the month from the finance department and leave.”
At the same time, Hannah was busy analyzing various plans and reports in hand. Suddenly, the door to the office was pushed open as a colleague walked in and said, “Hannah, M. Dijon would like to see you in his office right away.”
“Got it. I’ll head over right now,” Hannah answered. She exhaled and instantly stopped what she was doing. She wondered why Mr. Dijon would want to see her as she rubbed her temples. Then, she got up and walked towards Mr. Dijon’s office.
