Despite that, Anastasia returned his gaze before replying with determination, “No one can stop me if I want to go.”
Right then, everyone was shocked by Anastasia’s attitude to challenge Elliot’s bottom line. She refused to go along with any of Elliot’s demands, and no one else in the entire company would have dared to do so.
“Alright, well, the meeting’s over now!” Even Felicia was terrified that Elliot might be angered and didn’t want to give Anastasia more opportunity to p**s him off.
At this moment, Anastasia left her seat with her documents while Alice glared at her with jealousy. Who gave Anastasia the audacity to do what she did? How dare she treat Elliot like that?
When Anastasia returned to her office and wanted to take a sip of water, her office door was opened harshly before an angered figure entered the office.
When is this going to stop? She narrowed her eyes and looked at the man with a dark face in front of her before she placed her cup down. “What’s wrong, President Presgrave?”
“Show me President Curtis’s details.” Elliot reached out for the document from Anastasia.
“You saw him at the jewelry exhibition last night. His name is John Curtis,” Anastasia answered truthfully.
Upon hearing that, the man had his facial expression darkened even more. Why won’t she refuse to meet that guy at 8.00PM tonight when she already knows that he has ill intentions?
“Can’t you tell that he has ill intentions?”
“All I know is that my draft is worth seven digits.” All Anastasia wanted was to get her commission.
“Get someone else to go meet him, then,” Elliot suggested.
“No. I have to do it myself because this is my order. I don’t need you to worry about me.” Then, Anastasia opened the door to her office and motioned for Elliot to leave. “You should leave! I have to resume working now.”
However, Elliot gritted his teeth and said, “Anastasia, you’ll regret this.”
Still, Anastasia raised her eyebrows before smiling. “That’s still none of your business, President Presgrave.”
“You—” Elliot’s face darkened.
Ever since he met Anastasia, he had lost control of his anger and kept getting annoyed by her behavior.
Meanwhile, Anastasia exhaled while watching as the man left angrily. Somehow, she felt a hint of thrill because Elliot was Hayley’s boyfriend. She would still dismiss him even if he was really worried for her.
Since Anastasia was going to work overtime, she could only get Francis to come over to look after Jared. Nevertheless, Francis agreed to pick Jared up at school, as he had been missing Jared after not seeing him for days and wanted to take him out for a nice meal at night.
Knowing that her father would take care of her kid, Anastasia could finally work overtime without worry, as she still hadn’t completed the regular draft submissions that she needed to submit by the end of every month.
Around 6.30PM, she ordered takeout and ate at the company’s pantry while staring at the beautiful sunset view outside of the window in awe.
At the same time, Elliot, who was still in the president’s office, massaged his temple and asked Rey, “Is she still in the company?”
“Miss Tillman ordered takeout just now, and she’s eating in the pantry currently. I’m guessing that she wants to work overtime until 7.00PM and go to John Curtis later
“Alright. Continue watching after her.” Elliot was still worried. Since he promised Harriet to take care of Anastasia along with the favor that he owed Anastasia’s mother, he couldn’t let anything happen to her.
After finishing her meal, Anastasia rested for a while before leaving at 7.10PM.
While she left in a cab at the company’s entrance, a black car quickly followed behind the cab and trailed after them.
On the other hand, Anastasia was anxious as she looked at the night view from the window of the car. She was hoping that she could leave immediately after settling the
deal and even thought of an idea to let John know her colleague was waiting outside.
Hopefully, he wouldn’t attempt anything with that in mind!
Then, the cab entered the rich housing area before stopping in front of a luxurious villa. After the cab left, another car stopped in the street behind Anastasia. Nevertheless, she didn’t notice it.
On the other hand, Elliot was trying his best to suppress his urge to dash out of the car as he watched Anastasia press the doorbell. In a while, he’d get Rey to enter the villa to check on her.
When the door in front of Anastasia opened, John’s voice rang out. “Come on in, Miss Tillman! I’m waiting for you in the living room.”
Upon hearing that, Anastasia quickly entered the house. As expected from a rich person, the villa was extremely luxurious. When she entered the living room, John, who was sitting on the couch in his black robe along with a glass of wine in his hand, came into view. At that moment, the rich man seemed somewhat carefree.
