Chapter 208 Resignation (1)
Rose’s words landed within three seconds.
There was not a single sound in the conference room.
Rose really did get Wesley’s interview, which greatly exceeded everyone’s expectations.
The fact that Wesley didn’t charge a single penny for the interview was already beyond belief.
All the surprises could not compare to the shock brought by the word “resignation” from Rose’s mouth at this very moment.
It was as if a piece of gold had fallen from the sky, right at your feet, but your hands were tied and you couldn’t pick it up.
The previously intimidating high–ranking officials were all silenced at this moment. They dared not readily admit their mistakes, could not swallow their pride to apologize, and could not find a way to make amends.
In the end, it was Charles who swallowed his pride and spoke up.
“You just mentioned resigning because you didn’t understand the real situation, Rose. This was a rash decision made by everyone, mainly because the way you handled this matter was utterly incomprehensible, wasn’t it?”
“Why not say that everyone present is too mediocre?” Rose’s tone was clearly gentle, but her words were full of barbs. “Those without
strength always love to use the excuse of being unfathomable to compensate for themselves.”
The faces of all the high–ranking individuals darkened once again.
This Rose… was really a bit too arrogant, wasn’t she?
A tiny editor, who had only been in the industry for a few months, relied on his good luck and achieved some results. He even dared to speak arrogantly in front of so many industry veterans.
But before their faces could turn completely dark, Rose laughed in relief and said, “I’m not afraid of offending you all. After all, I’m leaving Flourish Media today anyway. To tell the truth, I don’t feel any psychological burden. I suppose, with the interview rights to Mr. Lestrange in my hands, I won’t have trouble finding a new employer So everyone, farewell.”
“Wait!” Charles suddenly stood up, “Rose, someone just said
something unpleasant. Whoever said those words, I’ll have them stand up and apologize to you, alright?”
Clearly, Rose had obtained the free interview rights with Wesley through unconventional methods.
But regardless, the reality was, she was indeed the only one who managed to handle this matter.
After he finished speaking, he pointed at the senior executive who had just mocked and dismissed Rose, “You, apologize to Rose, now!”
The boss had spoken, so this senior executive had no choice but to stand up, “I’m sorry, Rose, I didn’t understand the situation before… You, you should communicate with your supervisor first when you accomplish something in the future. We didn’t understand the progress of the situation, so that’s why we said those things to you…..”
Even if the first sentence was an apology, the words that followed were clearly blaming Rose, shirking his own responsibility.
So Rose laughed even more naturally, “Well, you’re right, it’s my fault, so I’ll take responsibility.”

After she finished speaking, she bowed to everyone in the meeting room, then looked up at Abbie, “I would appreciate it if you could approve my resignation application as soon as possible.”
“But you…” Charles was still trying to persuade.
Rose had already started walking towards the outside, passing by Abbie. She paused for a second, her voice neither loud nor soft, clear and cheerful.
“However, I have to thank you. If it weren’t for your long phone call, mocking Mr. Sullivan, he wouldn’t have given me the free interview rights in a fit of anger.”
“What do you mean? What call did you make?” Charles immediately asked Abbie.
Abbie’s hands and feet turned cold, “I…I’m not…I didn’t know at all…”
That was actually the real Luther!
The message from Tommie was clear, Rose and he had argued and both had lost their interview rights.
How could Abbie have known that it was actually Luther who was with Rose at that time?
Was she… did she really seduce Wesley’s assistant with her beauty, just as she had been accused of doing?
“Rose, think it over again,” Charles almost stopped Rose.
“No, I need to go home and rest for my pregnancy.” With these words, Rose left without looking back.
Left behind a room full of stagnant high–rises.
Darrin was about to leave, but Charles stopped him, “Darrin, go and talk to Rose, she should listen to you.”
“Why should she listen to me?” Darrin’s gaze swept coldly over the people in the conference room, “I didn’t mock her, scold her, or force her to resign.”
The influence of the Sawyer family was growing increasingly larger in Flourish Media.
Abbie said a word, and it actually gathered so many high–level executives to come and stand by her side.
“Darrin, this is also for the company,” Charles pointed to the executives who were working. “Their inappropriate comments just now, I will criticize them and make them apologize to Rose one by one. You go and persuade her now, let’s talk about getting Wesley’s interview later.”
“Didn’t Mr. Carroll just say that Wesley’s interview was of little use? That it had no significance to the Overseas Department at
headquarters? Didn’t you condemn Rose for doing something she shouldn’t have done? Why do you now seem so cager?”
Darrin turned to sarcasm.
His relationship with his father had already soured, and now it was common knowledge at Flourish Media.
There was no need to hide or conceal anything.
Charles was furious, “I didn’t know it was free just now! What’s wrong
with me thinking like this? Who knew she could handle things like this?”
Who didn’t know that Wesley’s interviews were of high value.
But millions of dollars… it really hurt.
Flourish Media made its fortune through financial news, but finance is
no longer the flagship product of Flourish Media.
Having him invest so much money was visibly not worth it.
Chapter 208 Resignation (3)
But if this was a free pie falling from the sky, why wouldn’t Flourish Media want it?
Was everyone about to cry out of craving, okay?
“Was it Rose’s fault?” Darrin retorted sarcastically, “Didn’t she tell everyone from the start that she had the authorization? It was you who looked down on people and believed rumors. Haha, a bunch of… a mob at someone’s beck and call!”
When Rose cursed, the higher–ups all changed their faces.
Darrin cursed, even more blatantly, yet the group could only bow their heads in submission.
Charles was publicly humiliated by his son, losing all his dignity. His pent–up anger could only be vented on others.
“One by one, you all came here to make a fuss without even understanding the situation! What benefits do you get from making Rose resign? Mind your own business in the future!”
After he finished cursing, he turned to Abbie again, “I don’t care what method you use, you must secure Wesley’s interview! Whether you beg Rose or do it yourself, do you understand?”
Abbie knew that Charles had left her some dignity, she could only nod.
The complex looks from the higher-ups made her feel almost unbearable embarrassment.
Upon leaving the office, Abbie was completely engulfed in a state of
What should she have done?
Should I have gone to beg Rose?
No, she didn’t want to go.
Telling her to beg Rose is like giving her a knife to kill herself!
“What’s going on with Abbie now?” Suddenly, there was a murmur of discussion behind.
Abbie quickly hid.
“I don’t know, I heard things didn’t work out with Darrin, so she probably just lost it?”
“Ah, if it weren’t for her father’s sake today, I wouldn’t have gotten involved in this mess…”
“Forget it, forget it. You’re not the only one who got screwed over. Didn’t you see Mr. Carroll’s face has turned green?”
“Stay away from now on, that’s all the caliber she had…”
“To be honest, although Rose was a bit crazy, she really had some skills.”
“Do you think Darrin is blind? In terms of appearance and skills, how is Rose not better than Abbie? If it were me, I would also want a woman like Rose. What does Abbie have besides relying on her father?”
“If she couldn’t marry well, then with her own limited abilities, even the best father could only do so much…”
Several high–ranking individuals shook their heads and walked past the place where Abbie was hiding.
Abbie’s nails were all dug into her flesh.
She staggered, gritted her teeth, and walked aimlessly in a daze and anger, not knowing where she had ended up. Suddenly, she heard the familiar voice of Darrin.
“The Rose I knew didn’t need a man to get these things!”
