“Stop right there!” Janet grabbed Kaya‘s wrist and forced her to turn around, her eyes seething with anger. “You did it on purpose, didn‘t you? You came to my desk and offered me coffee so that you could deliberately damage my laptop to get rid of my designs!”
“How dare you accuse me of such a crime? Can you prove that I did it on purpose? Plus, I‘ve already said sorry a hundred times. What more do you want from me?” Kaya whined as though it was Janet who was making things difficult for her.
“Well, that‘s it. It’s late now. Dixon, you go back to your desk. Lind, come with me to my office.” After shooting the two women one last icy glance, Tiffany turned around and entered her office.
“I‘m really sorry for what happened. Let me treat you to dinner sometime so that I can make things up to you, okay?” Before going back to her desk, Kaya looked at Janet pitifully.
But this only made Janet feel sick. Kaya was such a hypocrite! If Tiffany weren‘t there, she would have slapped Kaya across the face.
In Tiffany‘s office.
“I know you‘re angry, Lind. And I also think that she did it on purpose. It doesn‘t look like an accident to me. But since we can‘t prove it, we can‘t do anything to her,” Tiffany sat in her chair and coaxed Janet calmly.
As an experienced woman in design industry, she could see through this smokescreen at a glance.
“I just feel so wronged, you know? How could she do this to me? We don‘t even know each other before this!” Janet pursed her lips unhappily, her body trembling slightly from anger.
Tiffany sighed heavily. “I’ve heard about what kind of person Dixon was before. Anyway, you can take your laptop to the repair shop to see if it can still be repaired. Maybe you might be able to download the data on it, then you can still participate in the evaluation.”
Tiffany also felt bad, because in her eyes, Janet was the most promising candidate for this promotion.
“Okay, will do.” Since her superior had said so, Janet had no choice but to s*****w her grievance.
After leaving the office, Janet promptly took her laptop to the repair shop.
“It was soaked in coffee and the hard disk is damaged. I‘m sorry but I can‘t retrieve the data for you.” The technician at the shop took a quick look at the damaged laptop and shook his head. He tossed Janet‘s laptop aside and offered, “Are you considering getting a new one? All the second–hand computers here are cost–effective.”
“Oh, no, thanks.” Although Janet had already expected the worst, she was still very depressed. She took back her laptop and left the shop dejectedly.
It took her a long time to finish this series of drafts. Now, even if she had to redraw it, it would take at least a day to finish everything.
But the work had to be submitted by tomorrow morning. It would be futile to even try since there were only several hours left before the deadline.
It was already 12:30 in the morning when Janet came back home with a cloud over her head.
She walked into the dark living room quietly.
Suddenly, the lights went on, illuminating the whole apartment suddenly.
Janet raised her hand to block the light and squinted.
Ethan was leaning against the wall near the door, with his arms crossed over his chest. Frowning slightly, his lips pursed into a straight line, and his dark, sharp eyes seemed to penetrate hers.
“Why are you so late?“.
