Chapter 12 Anastasia’s Way Out—Resignation

“Be a good girl, okay?” Elliot gently caressed Hayley’s head.

In that instant, Hayley was over the moon, feeling satisfied that she had gained Elliot’s favor. Unlike Anastasia, Hayley was flattered by the sudden entitlement that came to her life. However, she quickly decided to stop pressing on due to her fear of the repercussions that might follow her greed.

Furthermore, she was hoping to win Elliot’s heart with her meek character. She tried to be as gentle as possible since she didn’t have good looks that could make an impression on any man. Thinking she had won the battle, she believed Anastasia was going to be laid off soon and put her mind to ease.

As soon as Hayley got out of sight, Elliot reached for the phone and dialed the intercom.

“Hello.” Anastasia’s voice was heard.

“Come to my office at once,” the man responded with a voice that sounded angry.

At the same time, Anastasia took a deep breath in her office, thinking her fate was sealed while preparing for the worst. Well, I’ll just quit and leave Bourgeois if worse comes to worst. Then, she took the elevator to the 8th floor and made her way to the president’s office, whereupon she knocked on the door and entered the room.

In the meantime, Elliot was sitting in his chair, giving off an intimidating aura that filled the atmosphere around his room. “Explain yourself.” The man questioned Anastasia about her violent outburst earlier as a boss.

Anastasia squinted, thinking there was no point for her to explain anyway since she reckoned Elliot would believe everything his girlfriend, Hayley, said without question. “Who is Hayley to you?” Anastasia knitted her eyebrows and asked.

“Have you forgotten your place, Anastasia? You’re my employee, and since you’re in the wrong now, you should be the one answering my questions,” Elliot replied.
