“Hehe. You have nothing to say for yourself now, right?”
Beatrix smiled gleefully. Just as she was about to teach
him a lesson, Emmanuel said calmly, “This isn’t a
candlelight dinner. I’m only treating her to a meal to
“Huh? Thank her?” Beatrix was surprised.
That never crossed Beatrix’s mind. “I was the one who
helped you that night. You should be treating me
instead. Why are you treating her to a meal? Is it
because you like her? In what way am I not better than
Claudette?” she asked, riled up.
She even puffed her chest when she finished her
Emmanuel was at a loss for words. Ms. Beatrix is really
an active person. Her personality’s the complete
opposite of that icy woman. Mm… I’m sure they’re not
related by blood.
“Ms. Beatrix, you’ve misunderstood the situation. I’m not
thanking her because of that. She was the one who
helped my mother get the ward back.”
That was when Emmanuel told her what happened at
At the same time, he found the situation odd. Why is
she asking weird questions during a job interview?
“I see…” Beatrix stroked her chin.
Mackenzie must be feeling upset because of this
matter. I wonder if there’ll be any changes to her mood
if I tell her the truth.
“Yes. If you don’t mind, I can treat you to a meal to
thank you too.”
“Yes, but I can only treat you to a normal meal
because I’m low on funds,” Emmanuel explained
frankly, his cheeks blushing.
“All right. I’ll hire you because of this meal. You can
come to work from tomorrow onward and become my
errand boy,” informed Beatrix while clapping.
Just like that?
Emmanuel froze for a few seconds before saying,
“Thank you, Ms. Beatrix.”
Seeing him stepping out of the room, Alessandra
hurried over and asked, “Manny, how did the interview
Since Emmanuel was the first to get interviewed, many
interviewees eyed him nervously.
“Haha! He must’ve failed! I’ve never heard of a high
school graduate getting hired at Terence Group,”
“Exactly. All the employees at Terence Group are highly
“This position requires an individual to have professional knowledge. They’ll never hire him.”
A few youngsters discussed softly by the side.
Ignoring them, Emmanuel answered, “Mom, I got the
job. I’ll start working tomorrow, so you really don’t have
The youngsters‘ eyes almost popped out of their heads
in astonishment. One of them even dropped their
He got hired?
A young lady quickly approached and asked softly, “What did they ask during the interview?”
It was apparent that she wanted to join Terence Group
and have a promising career plan.
“The questions are a little odd. Are you sure you want to hear them?” Emmanuel asked sincerely. He was not
a petty person.
“Yes, please. Thank you, mister.”
The young lady clasped her hands together with an
expectant look on her face.
Even Jacob and the others pricked up their ears.
“Have you ever had any affairs?”
The first question caught the young lady by surprise.
Regardless, Emmanuel had already expected that
reaction from her. After all, that was his first reaction,
too. Unfazed by her response, he continued, “Have you
ever had a candlelight dinner with someone of the.
“What?” Jacob shrieked.
What kind of questions are these? What do they have
to do with the position?
Ignoring their reactions, Emmanuel continued with the
last question, “The interviewer also asked in what way
is she not better than Ms. Claudette Lenoir.”
Jacob almost screamed, and the young lady was
Even the other interviewees around them were
dumbfounded. What kind of interview is this?
However, Emmanuel appeared honest. He did not look
like he was lying.
Of course, Emmanuel did not care if they believed him
or not. He simply wished them luck and left with
