Agnes was genuinely in awe of Jenny’s adaptability. The phrase “better bend than break” couldn’t be more fitting for her.
She hinted at that Agnes had a charm that attracted men, which was actually a way of saying that Jared only gave her the interview because he was drawn to her good looks. This insinuation gave Jenny a way out, and she looked so innocent. If Agnes made a fuss now, it would make her seem petty and unreasonable.
Although Agnes was displeased, she didn’t want a spat with Jenny
The thought of the woman in front of her being a dear friend she had once sincerely cared for felt like a stab in the heart.
Agnes generously said, “It’s no biggie I’ll add your name after the interview”
Jenny seemed a bit taken aback.
Agnes continued, “Getting to interview Jared was a collective effort from The Journalism Society. It wasn’t a solo contribution. So, President, I hope the final byline includes all members of The Journalism Society”
Lily was thrilled upon hearing this She knew once the magazine was published, it would cause a big stir. Having her name on such a piece was crucial for her resume.
Lily said, “Agnes, I didn’t expect you to be so generous. Thank you!”
Agnes glanced at Jenny, a flash of resentment in her eyes.
Who didn’t know how to put on a show and feign generosity? Agnes just didn’t bother in the past.
After exiting the elevator, Jenny said, “You all worked hard today. Let me treat you to dinner tonight. How about Cloud View?”
Everyone was surprised at the mention of Cloud View.
It was one of the most luxurious restaurants in the city, typically patronized by the rich and powerful. Ordinary people couldn’t afford it.
The other members of The Journalism Society were also excited, “Cloud View, I heard the cheapest dish there costs an average person’s monthly wage!”
*Jenny, you’re indeed a rich missy, so generous.”
Jenny walked up to Agnes, “Agnes, please come and consider it my way of apologizing.”
If Agnes refused, she would appear petty.
So, in the end, Agnes went to Cloud View with everyone.
Agnes knew about Jenny’s family situation and wondered why she was splashing the cash. But Agnes didn’t say much.
The dinner surprisingly cost two thousand dollars.
When it came to paying the bill, Jenny pulled out a black card.
People who owned this black card were a minority in the city, all top–tier tycoons. Everyone was surprised.
Jenny usually seemed low–key. Who knew she was a really rich girl?
But Agnes recognized it in an instant. It was Elton’s black card.
Lily said, “Jenny, your card is something else. To my knowledge, no more than ten people in the entire city have this card.”
Jenny deliberately placed the black card on the table in front of Agnes, then said, “Really? I didn’t know. It’s a birthday gift from my boyfriend. I just treat it like a regular credit card.”
This piqued everyone’s interest.
Someone said, “Jenny, your boyfriend must be something to gift a black card casually.”
Others said, “So envy, your boyfriend must really love you, Jenny. We’d love to meet him.”
Jenny blushed, “He’ll pick me up in a bit.”
Everyone exclaimed in unison, “Jenny, you’re so lucky.”
Just then, the door to the private room was pushed open.
A tall figure stood at the door.
Jenny quickly said, “He’s here.”
