Ellinor kept her cool, patiently explaining. I was invited to the ribbon cutting ceremony as a guest. I went upstairs to take a look around. I wanted to use the restroom, but I took a wrong turn.”
Sophia obviously didn’t buy her explanation, giving her a once-over with a skeptical look. ‘So you’re saying you’re a guest for the ribbon cutting? Missed the restroom door? You think I was born yesterday? I don’t remember hearing your name on the guest list. What’s your name?”
Ellinor answered. Tm Moon, the designer of the Blanchet Building. If you don’t believe me, you can call the person in charge at Crescent Society, the contractor for the Blanchet Building. I really did take a wrong turn just now, and I have other malters to attend to, so I can’t stick around.”
With that, Ellinor showed Sophia the ID badge she had just shown to the staff and left
Sophia looked at her badge, which did indeed read “Special Guest Moon”
But her gut told her something was fishy about this woman, who was overdressed and seemed to be on high alert.
After some thought, Sophia decided to stop her again.
Ellinor was stopped again. She wore a mask that covered everything but her eyes, looking somewhat annoyed “What now, lady?”
Sophia held up the ID badge Ellinor had just given her. This is definitely a Blanche: Corporation badge, but there’s no photo on it. How do I know you didn’t just find this on the ground?”
Ellinor chuckled lightly already told you that if you have doubts, you can contact the Crescent Society for confirmation.”
Sophia wasn’t impressed. “And how would I do that? They can’t tell me what Moon looks like over the phone. Even if they could, I wouldnt know if you were her! Look at you! You have a hat on your head and a mask on your face, you’re dressed like you’re going to the Arctic. How am I supposed to recognize you? Unless you take off that hat and mask, that is!”
Ellinor responded “Sorry, but you have no right to make that demand”
With that, Ellinor tried to leave, but Sophia quickly blocked her way. “If you won’t show me your face, I can’t let you leave”
Ellinor frowned. “On what grounds?”
Sophia retorted. You barged into the CEO’s office. You’re wearing a lot of clothes, and there’s something bulging under your coat. I suspect you stole something
and hid it
Ellinor was visibly pregnant, but she didn’t want to disclose that.
Ellinor was clearly annoyed, regretting her curiosity that led her into Theo’s office and attracted this pesky woman.
“If you think I stole something, you should check the office to see if anything’s missing, not accuse me based on a hunch
Sophia shrugged. “It’s not my office; how would I know what’s in there? I can only go off my gut feeling. But don’t worry, I respect personal rights. I won’t search you. I’ll call the police and let them check your identity and whether you stole anything
Ellinor fell silent
This woman was a real piece of work!
She couldn’t let her call the police. Once the police arrived, they would ask for her ID, and then everyone would know she was Ellinor.
Ellinor calmly looked at Sophia. “Are you really going to treat me like this? I was the guest at the ribbon-cutting ceremony today. The media took photos when I was cutting the ribbon downstairs. You can ask them to come up and confirm my identity
“When I got here, all the media had already left! No one can vouch for you! But if you take off your hat and mask, I’ll let you go.”
