Chapter 14


Chapter 14 Work In The Anderson Group. “What are you doing?" Without warning, Theodore's voice echoed through the living room, causing Ariana to jump and almost drop her phone. She scrambled to put it away as he appeared behind her like a ghost. Trying to hide her unease, she rose from the sofa and chided him, "Why must you sneak up on people like that? It's beyond frightening. ” Theodore's frown deepened as he sneered at her. "If you didn't do anything wrong, you wouldn't feel guilty," he stated coldly, making Ariana roll her eyes inwardly. As she prepared to leave, Theodore wheeled himself over to her with a casual air, his handsome features indifferent. He sized her up as though choosing an inconsequential item,. Despite Ariana's composure, she couldn't shake the feeling of unease his gaze brought upon her. "What's that in your hand?" Theodore demanded abruptly, his piercing gaze trained on her. Ariana froze, realizing that she still clutched the business card in her hand. Hastily, she balled it up and tossed it into the nearby wastebasket, feigning nonchalance. "Nothing, just an advertisement flier that was handed to me while I was out," she replied, hoping her voice didn't betray her nervousness. "You went out today?" he asked, his tone inscrutable. "Yes, I went out for a walk. ” As Ariana tried to suppress her guilt, she swallowed hard and summoned the courage to ask about Theodore's. well-being. "How are your legs?” Theodore was taken aback by her concern, and a rare smile graced his lips. His response, however, was dripping with arrogance. "It's none of your business. With that, he wheeled his chair away, leaving Ariana feeling unsure of what to do next. Yet, she couldn't help but feel relieved that Theodore didn't pry any further, as she was certain she would have slipped up and revealed her interview. The unexpected exchange left Ariana feeling uneasy and out of sorts, causing her to lose interest in investigating Holden's background. After returning to her room, Ariana was eager to check the results of the interview from the BRD Group

But as she read the short, polite message of rejection, her heart sank. At first, she was disappointed but then found the whole situation funny. She chided herself for ever thinking Adrian was interested in her. She was back to her unlucky life, and failure was just a part of it. The next morning, Ariana went down for breakfast and saw that Darian and Jasper had joined them at the table. She sat beside Theodore and glanced at the trio. ‘Theodore's face was an enigma, but Jasper was grinning from ear to ear as if he had won a game. With the confusion in her heart weighing her down, Ariana wordlessly poured herself a glass of oat milk. As she was about to take a sip, she chanced upon the empty plate in front of Theodore. It was as if a switch flicked inside her head, and before she could even. think, she gently pushed the glass of milk in front of him Theodore's indifferent expression softened ever so slightly, as he looked up at her and took a sip from the glass. A strange, unfamiliar warmth spread through Ariana's chest, and she couldn't help but feel a sense of contentment. For the first time in what felt like forever, the tension in the air dissipated, and Ariana wondered if this could be a turning point in their relationship. Maybe she could try to be nicer to him, even if it was just by pushing his wheelchair for him. At that moment, Darian placed his utensils on the table and started talking. "I have something important to tell you all," he announced, eyes flickering around the table. "Theodore is struggling to manage the company all by himself because of his health condition. We cannot continue like this. Ariana felt a lump form in her throat, her hands trembling as she clutched her tableware. Her heart raced with nervousness, unsure of what Darian was going to suggest. Ariana had learned about the Anderson Group from Jasper, and she knew that it was one of the most prominent companies in the hotel industry in Eleymond. The group had almost a monopoly on high-end hotels in the city, making it an incredibly successful business. However, after Darian's father passed away and he took over, the company started to experience a downturn. It was on the verge of bankruptcy before Theodore intervened, taking over the company and implementing sweeping reforms to revive its fortunes

Under his guidance, the Anderson Group even opened a subsidiary in the entertainment industry, which proved to be a smart. move. But now, it seemed as though Darian was trying to use Theodore's illness to push him aside and reap the benefits of his hard work. It was clear that Theodore saw right through Darian's ploy. He calmly set his glass down and fixed his gaze on Darian. "Why don't you just come straight to the point and say you want to strip me of my power? There's no need for these fancy words," he sneered. Darian was unable to maintain his composure any longer. He slammed his fist onto the table and bellowed, "Do you speak to your own father in such a manner?". However, Theodore wasn't fazed by Darian's outburst. Instead, he turned his attention to Ariana, who had stopped eating and was clearly distressed by the scene. "It's alright. Don't worry about it. Just finish your breakfast," he said, ina reassuring tone. Ariana nodded absentmindedly, her appetite gone. Darian's face turned red with anger, struggling to keep his emotions under control. “Theodore, I appreciate all the work you've done for the Anderson Group, but after the accident, the company has been in a precarious state. Since you need to rest and focus on your health, why not let Jasper help out and ensure the company's stability? It's for all of our sakes. Theodore sneered and replied cryptically, "That's a tough call for you. ” But his expression soon tured serious, and his icy stare locked onto Darian. "I'll agree, but only on one condition. Everyone looked at Theodore in anticipation. Theodore's smile turned into a mischievous grin as he made his. shocking request. "I want Ariana to work at the Anderson Group, too
