Feeling that the atmosphere was a bit inappropriate, Vivian immediately turned away and avoided his eye contact. “I’ll get back to work now.”
She nodded and walked out of Fabian’s office in a hurry.
A corner of Fabian’s mouth quirked up as soon as she left. Clearly, Finnick is not the man for you. I’ll get you back, Vivian. I will.
The moment Vivian returned to her desk, she heard her colleagues murmuring behind her back again. Gah… What’s wrong with these women!
Just when she lifted her head and was about to shoot daggers at them, she noticed Evelyn walking in her direction.
That woman had a peach dress on and wore a pair of red heels. Though there was still a bandage on her face, she seemed fine now.
Wait… What is she doing here? Vivian did not have a good feeling about it.
“Oh my God. Isn’t that Evelyn?”
“She looks so much prettier in person. I cannot imagine her living with a scar on her face for the rest of her life!” One of the colleagues then gave Vivian a sullen glare.
“But I feel that having a bandage on makes her look more charming. Now I understand why Vivian wanted to disfigure her. She must have felt threatened by her beauty. I mean, I would have lost my confidence too if she’s my love rival.”
“What is Evelyn doing here, though? Did she come all the way to fight against Vivian?”
“I think so! Evelyn must have come to warn her to stay away from her man.”
Hearing that, Vivian could not help but let out a cold snort. If only they knew the ugly truth behind her demure appearance.
“What are you doing here!” Vivian sneered as Evelyn walked up to her.
Evelyn took a glance at the people around them and grinned. “Are you sure you want to talk in front of everyone?”
Knowing that Evelyn was right, Vivian stood up right away and walked to the pantry. She did not want her colleagues to ridicule her anymore.
In the pantry, Vivian looked at Evelyn and asked, “Just what do you think you’re doing?”
Instead of answering her question, Evelyn looked around the pantry and said, “So, this is where you work? Does Finnick know you actually work for such a small company?”
“It’s none of your business.”
“None of my business?” Evelyn scoffed as if she was talking to a fool.
“What do you want from me?” Vivian was sick of playing mind games with her.
Upon seeing how annoyed Vivian was, Evelyn let out a mirthless laugh. “Why can’t you be a little patient with me? I came here to see people’s reaction, of course.”
Evelyn looked at Vivian and smirked. “Remember what I told you earlier? People will never believe you. Look what happened now.”
“You did nothing wrong, but the whole world doesn’t believe you. How do you feel now?” Evelyn asked, “I bet you must be devastated since Finnick and your Mom are not on your side.”
“You purposely came here to tell me this?” Vivian tried to contain her anger.
Evelyn nodded once with a smirk. “Oh, yes. I want your entire office to know that I’m the victim here.” A hard glint flashed through her eyes. “I want everyone to hate you wherever you go. That’s your punishment for stealing my belonging.”
Vivian almost wanted to slap the hell out of Evelyn upon seeing the arrogance on her face, but she reminded herself to stay calm.
She knew Evelyn had come to irritate her on purpose, and if she lost her cool, those people outside would further make up stories about her.
