When Evadne found out from Alvin that Ada had left the fashion show early, she hurried to the underground parking lot with Jason.
By then, Ada was already looking tired, sitting in her nanny car.
Just as the car door was about to close, a pair of pristine hands grabbed the door and pushed it open with force!
“Miss Ada, I get it, you’re pissed off after seeing the trending topic. Hell, I’m pissed too, because the photos were leaked by someone else. We at K Orld Hotel had no idea!”
Evadne, who had rushed over, was out of breath with sweat pouring down her forehead.
Ada was smiling at Evadne. With her rich acting experience, she had a good control over her expressions and emotions.
She didn’t lose her temper, but simply said, “Ms. Evadne, we have a contract, so I know you guys might really be in the dark. I believe you’re a person of principles, otherwise you wouldn’t have gotten Mr. Alvin’s approval.”
After Ada said this, Jason’s eyes lit up. He thought there might be a chance to salvage the situation.
However, Ada’s next words were like a bucket of cold water thrown over him and Evadne…
“But you can’t deny, K Orld Hotel has serious problems with confidentiality, and as the general manager, you can’t shirk your responsibilities.
This time it was the wedding setup that got leaked, next time it could be client information. K Orld Hotel’s management has undeniable oversight issues, which led to today’s incident. Am I right, Ms. Evadne?”
Ugh, this woman was so difficult to deal with. Her attitude changed just like that!
Jason was flushed. He really wanted to defend Evadne!
He could take any harsh words, even a beating, but he couldn’t stand others questioning Evadne. He couldn’t bear to see the girl he’d always cared for being wronged!
Evadne raised her hand to stop Jason, took a deep breath, and admitted her mistake with grace..
“I’m sorry, Miss Ada, this incident is indeed due to our management issues. We let someone with ill intentions in and that person leaked the wedding setup. As the hotel manager, I am responsible.”
“Ms. Evadne.” Jason’s eyes were red and he clenched his fists in anger.
“Ms. Evadne, the fact that you admitted your mistake is already better than many managers. But no matter the reason, you guys violated the contract, so I can only act according to the contract and end the cooperation with K Orld Hotel. Otherwise, there would be no point in us signing a contract, right?”
With a slight smile, Ada signaled her agent to close the door.
“Miss Ada, please wait a moment!”
Evadne took the box from Jason and handed to Ada, her tone firm yet polite, “You chose to terminate our cooperation, and I understand your decision. Even though we can’t work together now, our friendship still exists. I’ve prepared the dessert you wanted last time. I came here today to give it to you, please accept it.”
Ada looked at the box for a few seconds but didn’t take it. She just said, “Ms. Evadne, I really appreciate your kindness. If we have a chance to work. together again, I’ll accept it.”
Evadne bit her lip hard, watching as the nanny car drove away.
You by W W W
“Ada rejecting your gift is a public humiliation to you! This is too much!” Jason said angrily, but he was powerless against her.
After all, it was their fault.
“I can understand why she did this. I don’t consider it a humiliation. After all, our cooperation is over, and she has no reason to accept my gift. She’s getting married soon and with this happening now, she must be troubled. After all, she still needs to find another hotel.” Evadne took a deep breath and calmed her emotions, “Even if Ada no longer works with us, I can’t just let this slide. What we need to do now is to find the traitor who betrayed me, who betrayed us.”
“You’re talking about a traitor?” Jason asked in surprise, “You suspect the problem lies with our own people? Isn’t it Glynnis who’s messing things up
behind the scenes?”
“Even if Glynnis is causing trouble, without someone inside colluding with her, she wouldn’t succeed. So, we first need to ensure internal stability.” Evadne’s eyes sparkled with determination, “It seems someone is plotting against me. I’ll show them I’m not to be messed with!”
Despite the failed cooperation, Evadne didn’t lose heart.
Losing Ada as a big client wasn’t the most important thing. The most important thing was to find the traitor in the hotel immediately. Otherwise, it would cause endless trouble!
“Ms. Evadne, this dessert?” Jason said, feeling a bit down.
Evadne’s long eyelashes fluttered slightly. She threw the box in her hand into the trash can, and then walked away without looking back.
“A gift is what’s accepted. What’s rejected is trash. I never take back the gifts I give out. Let’s go.”
After they left, a tall figure slowly emerged from the shadows.
Thaddeus watched Evadne’s retreating figure, a glint in his eyes.
“Mn Thaddeus, it seems Ms. Evadne will be busy in the coming days. Catching a traitor is the hardest thing!” Gordon sighed behind him.
Without a word, Thaddeus walked over to the trash can, bent down, and picked up the box Evadne had thrown in.
“Mr. Thaddeus! Don’t pick it up. It’s too dirty!” Gordon watched him, feeling very uncomfortable.
“It’s okay, I’ve done this when I was a kid too,” Thaddeus said casually.
He thought back to the time when he saw Evadne making desserts in the kitchen, a warmth spreading in his heart.
After returning to K Orld Hotel, Evadne called all the senior executives and members of the wedding planning team into the conference room for an emergency meeting.
Everyone had heard about Ada terminating the cooperation and were very angry, feeling that all their efforts had gone to waste, some even started crying.
Seeing this, Evadne felt very distressed.
She wasn’t scared of a failed collaboration, nor did she care about any injustice she was put through. What she feared most, was letting down her teammates who’d been busting their humps alongside her.
“No worries, guys, the situation ain’t as bad as it seems, and there’s a solution to it. Let’s keep plowing ahead and not sweat the small stuff.
Evadne’s eyes crinkled up as she laughed, “Don’t fret about your paychecks, vacations, and time off. this, seriously.”
“siness as usual, folks. No need to shed tears over
But everyone was solid as a rock. They all insisted on canceling their vacations and throwing themselves.
After the meeting, everyone cleared out.
Jason peeked outside to make sure no one was around, and then closed the meeting room door.
work to make up for the loss.
“Ms. Evadne, why didn’t you spill the beans about the traitor in our midst during the meeting?” Jason asked, frowning in confusion. If you had put some heat on them, I could have observed their reactions and maybe sniffed out the rat.”
“You’re oversimplifying things,” Evadne replied, resting her hand casually on the armchair and swiveling around. “Do you think the traitor wouldn’t be prepared? He certainly knew I’d call a meeting about this. But not mentioning it and playing it cool keeps him guessing and on edge.”
Jason chuckled helplessly. The lady sure was sharp.
“It’s water under the bridge. The traitor has already succeeded. There’s no point in pressuring him now.”
Suddenly Evadne’s expression hardened. “What we need to do is make him drop his guard and make him think he’s safe. Then we strike.
“Miss, I’ll check the surveillance footage later, see if any suspicious characters were hanging around the wedding venue. I’ll also look into the account that leaked the photo to see who spilled the beans.”
A dangerous glint appeared in Evadne’s eyes, “Good, get on it.”
