Was it too late to turn back time?
This scheme had to be one of the most ridiculous things Eve heard in her entire life. This woman was as crazy as she initially thought when they met. It took all her willpower not to break away from character.
"So, do we have a deal?" Jane asked. Her teacup sat empty on the table.
"This is…" Eve breathed out. She stared at the table, her brown eyes glassy and uneasy. The consequences registered as she got over her shock. "This is insane. I'll be fired!"
Jane exhaled sharply. She forgot how loyal the secretary was. Was it a mistake to assume that her friends mattered more than her job? "If it succeeds and you need a new job, I'll help you."
That should do the trick.
But Eve proved to be difficult.
"I still can't do it. I owe Sir Hathaway a lot," she thought out loud. "And I can't do that to him."
And... that, ladies and gentlemen, concludes Volume 3: Leave the CEO. I initially planned to update in a few hours but my heart rate decided to go insane. I can't tell if it's from caffeine or the emotional rollercoaster in this chapter.
Either way, I will see you tomorrow.
Have a good day!
