Charlotte was really struggling, so she didn’t hesitate to hand the suitcase to Kennedy.
“Sorry for the inconvenience, Mr. Stapleton.”
Kennedy chuckled heartily, “No trouble at all.”
A few people arrived at their destination half an hour later. William and Charlotte were drenched in sweat, looking somewhat disheveled. In contrast, Briana was breathing steadily, showing no signs of having just climbed a mountain for half an hour.
After setting down Charlotte’s suitcase, Kennedy looked at Briana and said, “Ms. Schneider, this is the accommodation our village has prepared for you for the next few days. It’s a bit modest, we hope you won’t mind.”
Briana nodded, “Hmm, thank you, Mr. Stapleton. By the way, how do we solve our daily meal problem?”
“You ate at my house, you rested first today, and I brought you lunch later. Starting tomorrow, I took you to visit the fabric factory in the village.”
“Alright, thank you for your hard work, Mr. Stapleton.”
“No problem, I’ll head back first then. Feel free to call me anytime if you have any questions.”
After Kennedy left, Briana looked at the house in front of her. It was
an old–fashioned mud house. Having come all this way, Briana knew this was the best house in their village.
From the moment Charlotte found out that this was the place they were
going to stay for the next week, her eyes couldn’t help but show disdain.
She had never seen such a rundown house before. Could anyone actually live in here?
“How could one live here?”
Briana glanced back, her expression indifferent as she said, “I just checked, there are three rooms, one for each of us.”
Charlotte frowned, her expression full of dissatisfaction, “That’s not what I meant. I can’t live in such a house!”
“So what did you want?”
“I needed to find a hotel, at the very least it should have a place to shower, right?!”
Had she known the conditions of the business trip location were so poor, she would have definitely feigned illness and not come yesterday
“Charlotte, it seems you’ve misunderstood something, we’re here on business, not for pleasure!”
Charlotte bit her lower lip, irritably saying, “Anyway, I can’t stand living in such a house for even a day. If you, Ms. Schneider, insist on -forcing me, I can only resign!”
“As you wish.”
After speaking, Briana turned around and dragged her luggage into the
བྷི, ཨ ཙྪནཱ ཝཱ དྷནཾ ཨི ཨུ ནུ ‘
Charlotte gritted her teeth in anger, but she was in an unfamiliar place and didn’t know who to turn to even if she wanted to leave.
William, who was standing by her side, noticed her embarrassment and said, “Charlotte, since you’re already here, just grit your teeth and bear it for a week. Even if you’re really planning to quit, you should wait until we get back to Bridenville.”
Under William’s persuasion, Charlotte reluctantly said, “Fine, as soon as I return to Bridenville, I will resign immediately. I came to be a secretary, not to endure this kind of hardship!”
When Charlotte dragged her suitcase into the living room, Briana had already made the bed.
Seeing Charlotte, her expression was indifferent, with neither anger nor the joy of Charlotte agreeing to stay in her eyes.
William noticed the awkward atmosphere between the two and quickly said, “Charlotte already realized her mistake, don’t take what just happened to heart.”
Briana was calm, “I didn’t take it to heart. It was just a job. If you want to do it, do it. If you don’t, then don’t. It’s that simple.”
Charlotte’s face fell a little, her eyes full of grievance.
William, fearing that Charlotte would start arguing with Briana again, quickly said, “Charlotte, you go choose a room. I take whatever is left.”
After Charlotte had chosen the room, the two went to put away their suitcases.
Th the time the two had tidied up and left the room, Kennedy had already brought over the food
“Mi Schneider, I’m worry, we don’t have much to offer in our rural area. I hope you won’t mind ”
Charlotte glanced at the dishes on the table, a braised chicken, a plate of scrambled eggs with tomatoes, a plate of stir–fried vegetables, and a soup of vegetable meatballs
It was indeed very rudimentary
Briana shook her head and said. “It’s already very abundant, you don’t need to prepare so much in the future Just stir–fry a couple of
vegetarian dishes for us. The vegetables in your village are all homegrown, night”
