“It’s okay. And thanks. I was really scared just now,” Janet said in between deep breaths.

While she didn’t feel offended by Brandon’s behavior, she did feel a bit taken aback. After all, her boss didn’t look like the type of guy who would treat a woman this way. When he held her in his arms just now, his movements were very natural, as if he had done this sort of thing countless times.

“Are you scared of me?” the man in the darkness suddenly asked.

Ethan, whose fingertips were still tingling from touching the woman across the elevator, felt that Janet’s body was stiff just now. She seemed scared. Whenever they kissed, she would always go limp in his arms. But now, she went and did the opposite.

“Well, a little. But Mr. Larson, I’m not blaming you or anything. It’s all just too sudden.” Even though they were kind of friends, Janet didn’t dare to tell Brandon to stay away from her. He was her boss after all.

If she wanted to continue to work in the Larson Group, she had no choice but to s*****w the pride and show Brandon some respect he deserved.

Still, she was confused with the way Brandon treated her.

Was he interested in her?

No. That couldn’t be it. Janet frowned slightly in the dark, wondering if she was overthinking.

Well, whatever the reason Brandon behaved like this, she just couldn’t understand what kind of person he was.

As she mulled it over, Brandon didn’t say anything more.

A hush fell over the elevator. Suddenly, a grating noise sounded from the elevator door and light came flooding in. The rescuers had finally pried the door open!

Several fully armed rescue workers in orange uniforms reached out their hands to them. “Grab on!”

Janet squinted from the sudden light. Before her eyes could adjust, Brandon walked behind her and said, “You go first.”

Then he put his hands under Janet’s arms and lifted her up from behind without hesitation. He held her up and handed her to the rescuers.

The rescuers quickly pulled Janet up.

It was noisy outside. A group of people had gathered in front of the elevator. Most of them were the employees of the Larson Group. They probably rushed there when they heard the news that something had happened to their CEO.

“Lind, are you okay? Go home already. It’s almost 1 o’clock. Your family’s probably worried sick!” Garrett’s smiling face came into Janet’s view. He pushed her towards the exit without scruples.

Before Janet could protest, she was pushed out of the gate.

“Well, I guess I’ll go home then, Mr. Harding.” She deliberately turned around to look at Garrett and smiled.

She reasoned that Brandon should have been pulled out of the elevator by now. She wanted to take this opportunity to peek inside and see what Brandon looked like.

She had always been curious about the CEO of the Larson Group.

However, she couldn’t see past Garrett’s tall figure. Upon craning her neck slightly, she only saw Brandon’s broad back. With his head bowed, Brandon was escorted away by a group of men in black suits.

That whole time, she didn’t get even a glimpse of his face.

“What are you looking at, Lind?” With a pair of charming eyes, Garrett followed her gaze and sneered cryptically. “So, you were trying to get a look at Brandon, huh? It’s a pity he left too soon.”

“No, no. You misunderstand. Mr. Harding, please don’t make fun of me.” Riddled with guilt, Janet quickly averted her gaze.

She didn’t want to talk to him anymore, so she turned around to leave. “I’ll get going, Mr. Harding.”

With a smile on his face, Garrett took two steps forward and offered kindly, “Let me drive you home. It’s so late.”

Truth be told, someone had tasked him to send her home safely.

Frowning slightly, Janet didn’t think it was appropriate for him to send her home alone at such a late hour. “No, thanks. I don’t think it’s a good idea, Mr. Harding. Besides, my home isn’t that far from the company. It’s only a short walk away.”

“You look like you think I’m going to bite you. But okay, be safe, Lind!” With an unbothered smile, Garrett turned around and went back into the building leisurely.

Since he had promised Ethan, he wasn’t about to go back on his word. He quickly found a bodyguard to secretly follow Janet. He didn’t feel relieved until he heard that she arrived home safely.
