Finn Taylor waved Josie Meyer off, not wanting to talk to her. ‘Since she hates everything that I do and thinks that I bear no good intentions, there’s no point in me staying any longer.’
Just as he was about to shut the door, Michelle Yeller rushed forward. “Hold on, Mr. Taylor.”
The man turned back, and the young lady walked into his apartment. “I’m so sorry, Mr. Taylor. Josie…”
Finn Taylor waved her off. “It’s alright. I know you want to say that she doesn’t have any ill intentions, but I guess we just don’t click.”
Michelle Yeller shook her head. “No, I want to apologize on her behalf. Her words were a little harsh, but I hope you don’t take them to heart.”
Finn Taylor picked up a bottled beverage and handed it to the other. “That’s not your fault. You don’t have to apologize for her.”
The young girl shrugged and placed the beverage down before tidying up the place a little.
“Michelle, did you move here for your studies or to get a job?” Finn Taylor thought well of the young girl and wanted to recommend her a job at the Larson Corporation. That way, he would be able to get news about the company through her. However, he wasn’t sure if she would be willing to work in the company. After all, everyone knew that the Larson Corporation was on the verge of bankruptcy.
“Mr. Taylor, I’m here to get a job. I’m thinking of giving it a shot at the Larson Corporation.”
What surprised Finn Taylor was that Michelle Yeller had brought up the matter before he could even ask her about it.
“The Larson Corporation? It’s about to go under, so why would you want to work there?” Finn Taylor was curious about that.
“Actually, Josie was the one who suggested it. People like us who have no connections will be relegated to doing menial chores in other companies, and we’ll never be able to rise up through the ranks. But if we join the Larson Corporation while they’re on the brink of collapsing, we’ll definitely become part of the higher management if the company pulls through.”
These words made the man change his opinion toward Josie Meyer. He had never thought that the latter would have such insights. “What do you think? Do you want to work in the Larson Corporation too? What will you do if the company really goes under?”
The young lady shrugged. “We’re nobodies anyway. What we’re looking for are just jobs that will put food on the table. I don’t mind taking this bet.”
‘Alright, you’ve convinced me.’
“All the best. You guys will definitely get the jobs.”
Michelle Yeller glanced at the clock. “It’s about time for us to leave and get ready for the interview. I won’t disturb you anymore then, Mr. Taylor.”
She waved goodbye to the man before leaving.
Once she left, Finn Taylor made a call to David Sullivan to inform him that two young ladies would be turning up for an interview. Michelle Yeller was to be assigned to Yvette Larson as her secretary, and Josie Meyer was to be assigned to the public relations department as a secretary.
Although Finn Taylor had already left the company, it was still within his control.
At the same time, Yvette Larson headed out to her best friend’s house before driving to the Starbucks they had agreed to meet at.
By the time the two best friends arrived, Willow Stone was already there.
Clarine Landon wanted to rush up to confront her, but Yvette Larson held her back. The latter shook her head, and it was only then that the former tried to suppress her emotions.
The pair strolled over and took their seats.
“Two cups of cappuccino,” Willow Stone ordered.
Clarine Landon sneered. “So you still remember what we like.”
The other smiled. “Of course. You’re my best friends.”
“Best friends? Is this how you treat your best friend? By getting together with her husband?”
Willow Stone picked up her cup of coffee and smirked. “What can I do? You couldn’t even handle your own husband.”
On the other hand, Yvette Larson was calm. She said only one word: “Why?”
However, that word encapsulated so much. ‘Why is your boyfriend Finn? Why do you have to like your best friend’s husband? Why do you want to meet me since you’re already with Finn?’
Willow Stone replied with a seemingly unrelated question. “Is your coffee bitter?”
The other replied, “Yes, so?”
Willow Stone downed her cup of coffee. “I’ve added loads of sugar in mine, so it’s sweet. Don’t be fooled by what’s on the surface, Yvette.”
She then stood up and turned to leave, but Clarine Landon caught up to her. “Willow, what are you trying to say?”
The third of the best friends was left sitting there in a daze. She seemed to be lost in thought.
After a long while, she came to a sudden realization. “So that’s the case.”
Her best friend was still lost.
“Clarine, we maligned Finn and Willow.”
However, the other was still dazed. “Yvette, don’t be taken in by her words. Didn’t you catch her with Finn? What do you mean by maligning them?”
Yvette Larson replied in a low voice, “Let me tell you a secret.”
Her best friend loved gossip and quickly rushed over.
“Finn offended the Taylor siblings, and they swore to break his family apart. Finn put on an act with Willow and pretended to get a divorce from me to protect me. Think about it. We have to submit those papers for the divorce to be legally recognized; otherwise, everything will be fake.”
These words seemed to turn Clarine Landon’s world upside down. She had been worried sick about her best friend, yet it seemed like it was all for naught.
“Clarine, you mustn’t say a thing about this. Once word gets out, we’ll be done for. We must fool the Taylor siblings. Maybe we’ll be able to help Finn then.”
Clarine Landon nodded seriously. She still liked Finn Taylor, so she would definitely do all she could to help him.
Levi Taylor held a photo out to his sister. “Sis, look. Is she pretty?”
Melanie Taylor merely glanced at it. “Isn’t that the wife of that piece of trash? Why?”
Levi Taylor chuckled. “They got a divorce.”
His sister was dumbfounded. “A divorce? His wife chased him out?”
