Ethan nervously bounced on his feet.
Five minutes ago, when he walked out of his office and was about to take the exclusive elevator, he saw the workers were still repairing it.
Yesterday, Ethan had asked Garrett to cut off the electricity supply in the Larson Group building for an entire day.
Unexpectedly, something went wrong with his exclusive elevator. It stopped working even after the power was restored. The maintenance team came to repair it in the morning and hadn‘t finished working yet.
Ethan had no choice but to take the common elevator. It was already midnight, so he didn‘t think he would bump into any workers.
However, just as he arrived at the floor of the design department, the elevator stopped.
Ethan was taken aback when the door opened, and Janet entered. He shivered and immediately turned his back to her.
Fortunately, Janet was staring at the phone when she entered the elevator, so she didn‘t notice him.
Janet guessed it was Brandon. The first thought that came to her mind was to get out of the elevator. However, the door closed, trapping her there.
Subconsciously, Janet wanted to press the open button. But she was already in the elevator and felt it would be impolite to leave now.
She had no choice but to take the elevator with Brandon. Fortunately, the two would only have to spend a minute or two together.
The elevator was quiet, and the sound of her breathing amplified with every passing second.
Considering it would be rude to ignore his presence, Janet decided to greet him. She glanced at his back and said, “Good evening, Mr. Larson.” Her voice was barely above a whisper.
“Hmm.” Ethan gave her a cursory nod. He deliberately lowered his voice to make sure Janet didn‘t recognize him.
Janet frowned. She felt his voice wasn‘t as pleasant as Ethan‘s. It looked like he was speaking in an artificial voice to make him superior to others.
Ethan would sometimes hold Janet in his arms and whisper sweet words into her ear that would make her heart tremble. However, Brandon‘s voice was flat and rude.
Thinking about Ethan made Janet miss him even more.
The man remained silent and didn‘t bother to even look at her. Janet found that Brandon was totally different from what she thought he should be. He often took the initiative to talk to her online. But now, he didn‘t even bat an eyelid at her.
But on second thought, his aloofness seemed justifiable. After all, he owned the Larson Group while Janet was a mere designer there. This was probably how a president would talk to his workers.
The elevator fell silent again.
Janet took out her phone to check the time. It was already midnight, but she hadn‘t gone home yet. She wondered why Ethan hadn‘t texted or called her.
‘Is he still busy working in the convenience store?‘
As Janet thought about him, she glanced at Brandon.
The man was tall. His broad shoulders, straight posture, and firm back were similar to Ethan‘s. He was dressed in an expensive suit that clung to his perfect, muscular frame. Perhaps Brandon also liked running and working out. Janet shook her head and checked her phone again.
‘Should I talk to him about something? Gosh, this silence is embarrassing. Anyway, we often chat online,‘ thought Janet.
She glanced at the LED screen and abandoned the idea. ‘We have reached the fifth floor. I can soon run away from this embarrassing scene. After all, we won‘t meet again.‘
Just as Janet was lost in thought, the elevator jerked and stopped.
The lights in the elevator went out, and darkness consumed them.
