Read Married by Mistake Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife [by Sixteenth Child] Chapter 1016 – Eve’s heart lurched, but she made sure to keep her expression disdainful. “Why would I be afraid of her? She can fire me if she wants, but I can still ask her to pay me five times my salary as compensation!”
She got up and rolled her eyes, crossing her arms as well. “Not to mention that I’m our department’s representative with the press for every year’s annual charity gala. I’m in charge of an important segment. I’m also the only one who can do the segment. So no, I don’t think you-know-who would have the guts to fire me.”
‘You-know-who’ obviously referred to Madeline.
Eve’s expression turned arrogant at the mention of the annual charity gala. “Not even Mrs. Montgomery made me leave back then, so who is Eveline to do so? Does she really think that she’s the president just because she has taken over the company? You guys might not know this, but she used to be an inmate…”
Eve lowered her tone slightly as the female colleagues in front of her widened their eyes. In the midst of listening to Eve talk, they stared at the figure behind her.
Eve had not realized Madeline’s presence just yet, so she got more enthusiastic as she spoke. “You guys joined late, so there are some things that you might not know. I’ll let you in on some of them now. Take it as a bonus.”
“Eveline Montgomery used to be Madeline Crawford, but she was so stupid that her biological parents ended up mistaking another woman, Meredith Crawford, as their daughter. Honestly speaking, I think Meredith’s a lot smarter than her!”
“That’s not all. Do you guys know why Eveline went to p****n before?” Eve smiled as she urged their curiosity.
The group of colleagues gulped and shook their heads as they stepped backward.
It only fueled Eve’s pride. She was about to tell when a voice drifted from behind. “Then do you know why you’re about to go to p****n? Will it be defamation or slander of reputation?”
Eve had met Madeline a few times and heard her speak during meetings before, so to hear that same voice at this moment, she felt the soles of her feet chill.
Turning around to see Madeline standing elegantly in front of her, Eve grew frantic. “Ms. Mon-Montgomery. Good morning. You sure go the extra mile, supervising departments so early in the morning.”
Madeline took in Eve’s alluring smile and replied calmly, “Relax, I’m not the kind of person to let my private life affect my work. While I may not fire you because of what happened between us, it does not change the fact that you’ve slandered my reputation. I will have my lawyer follow-up on this. You can wait for my lawyer’s letter.”
Eve’s smile froze.
Madeline simply placed the documents down and turned to leave.
Eve spent the entire day in discomfort, and at the last minute before she clocked out, she indeed received a letter from Madeline’s lawyer.
With the letter in hand, Eve left the company while muttering angrily under her breath. She was about to call a cab when a car stopped in front of her. “Would you be interested in a partnership?”
A woman’s voice drifted from the car window.
“Who are you? Why would I want to partner with you?” Eve rolled her eyes in annoyance.
“You don’t need to know who I am. All you need to do is follow my orders and this 100,000-dollar cash is yours. I can also help you get back at Eveline Montgomery.”
Eve had her eyes on a few branded purses lately but found herself too broke to buy them. To have such a great term of condition presented to her, she agreed without a second thought.
The sky darkened and night began to fall.
Almost everyone had clocked out, leaving Madeline alone to work in the office.
The day of the annual charity gala was closing on her, and as the person in charge, she would do her best to make it perfect.
She did not want to be a disgrace to Sean and Eloise.
Madeline was just about to save a document when the entire building’s lights were shut off.
Confused, Madeline took her phone to call the building’s manager when she heard footsteps approaching her office…
