My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 22

22 Secret!

Keira was hoping that the old lady would recall some crucial clues.”

For instance, how did the old lady come to know her?

Also, how did she end up marrying Lewis Horton?

“Grandma, what secret do you want to tell me?”

Keira asked in anticipation.

The old lady spoke mysteriously, “I’ll tell you that brat’s secret weakness. If he ever upsets you, you can use it against him!”

Keira was speechless. She didn’t actually want to know.

However, the old lady seemed very interested in sharing. “Don’t be deceived by his arrogant and untouchable demeanor. He’s actually scared of cats.”

Keira was taken aback.

She suddenly remembered that a boy she knew when

she was little was also scared of cats…

But he was a child. Lewis was over six feet tall. Was he actually scared of cats?

The old lady then asked, “Granddaughter-in-law, do you prefer cats or dogs?”

“Dogs.”

She used to like cats, but since that boy didn’t like them, she lost her liking for them too.

Keira soon understood why the old lady would ask this question.

The next day, on the top floor of the Horton Group.

“Woof! Woof!” A cute little Shiba Inu was wagging its tail, running around Keira.

Tom was speechless, “The job old Mrs. Horton arranged for Miss Olsen is to take care of this puppy.”

Lewis didn’t know what to say.

It is said that old people tend to act like children and do things by their preferences.

Babysitting dogs as a job was simply ridiculous!

Lewis told Tom, “Take her… both of them to the New Energy Research and Development Division, Team One, for onboarding.”

This is what he had planned in advance.

The New Energy R&D Division didn’t involve the core business of the group, but it was related to future development. Putting her there would allow him to see if she slipped up.

Tom nodded immediately.

Keira didn’t care about these arrangements. She

picked up the puppy and followed behind Tom, asking, “Does it have a name?”

Tom said, “No. Old Mrs. Horton wants you to name it.”

Keira glanced at the sulky Lewis and suddenly smiled. “Let’s call it Kitten then.”

“You’re going to name a dog Kitten?”

“Is there a problem?”

“…No.”

The New Energy R&D Division is on the 38th floor of the Horton Group.

In the elevator.

Tom said, “Miss Olsen, among Horton Group’s R&D staff, the majority are Ph.D. students; at the very least, they are master’s degree holders from prestigious schools. You are the first one with a bachelor’s degree! Being able to learn from the seniors here can greatly benefit your future. This has been specially arranged for you by Mr. Horton. Of course, you don’t need to feel grateful. This is just a reward because you made old Mrs. Horton happy.”

Keira found it rather unnecessary.

“By the way, the boss doesn’t want your relationship to be made public, to avoid making a scene during the

future divorce.”

Keira glanced at him, saying lazily, “That’s exactly my

concern too.”

Tom was dumbfounded.

Was this woman actually looking down on his boss?

He wanted to say something, but the elevator reached their floor.

The New Energy R&D Department was divided into two groups, situated on the left and right sides of the elevator with a public rest area in between.

Keira just got off the elevator when she heard a group of men talking.

“I heard a young and beautiful intern will join our team today!”

“Wow! Finally, a change of scenery! Great!”

Someone from Group Two laughed, “Our group can soon invite Dr. South to join us as technical support. What’s so special about an undergraduate intern? Is she going to be a decoration piece?”

The people in Group One immediately shot him a glaring look. As they were about to respond, a voice of reprimand rang out. “What are you gossiping about? Don’t you have work to do?”

The man speaking was the head of Group One, Jalen Riley, who was about 26 years old. He was tall with

handsome features. He looked impatient and gave off a

rebellious aura.

The crowd immediately scattered.

He frowned at Keira and said unhappily, “Mr. Davis, why do you bring an inexperienced undergraduate into my team?”

Tom responded with a smile. “The boss ordered it.”

Jalen was still upset and looked at Keira arrogantly, “I don’t care what your background is. You’ll abide by my rules when you are here! Do not bring dogs to work

next time!”.

Keira simply replied, “Alright”

Only then did Jalen point to a vacant office as her

workstation.

After she went in, he looked at Tom and said, “Mr. Davis, this is the last time. However, if my cousin has the ability to recruit Dr. South over, he can send me a hundred or even a thousand of such individuals, and I

will not say a word!”

As a relative of the Horton family, he got his job at the

Horton Group through his own abilities!

That’s why he hated these nepotisms!

Keira’s first day at work was quite interesting.

With no one assigning her any tasks, she was quite

comfortable.

She played with Kitten in her office for a while, and the puppy curled up in a corner in the sunlight and fell asleep.

She then slowly got up, closed the office door, and prepared to go to the R&D Department’s data library.

Only by creating an effective drug for Alzheimer’s would the old lady’s health improve, and the old lady might recall something. Then Keira would be able to understand her inexplicable marriage to Lewis Horton!

Keira found a colleague who looked more scholarly and introverted and asked, “I need to do some research. Can you tell me where the data library is?”

The young man blushed. He was just about to give her

directions when someone asked suspiciously, “What do you need in the data library?”

Keira turned back and found it was Jalen.

She said, “I wanted to learn something.”

Jalen sneered right away, “You? What qualifies you, an undergraduate, to enter the data library? The technical knowledge there is all on the level of international problems. First, make sure you understand our team’s basic theory!”

Keira didn’t know what to say.

She took out her phone, intending to contact Lewis. Since she had her privileges, of course, she would use

them!

But before she could send her message, Jalen said, “Your connections are useless. I’m not just some small-time employee that they can manipulate casually. If you join my team, be a good employee and do your job properly. Don’t attempt to show off! It’s

obnoxious!”

The introverted colleague suddenly said, “Jalen, she

graduated from Oceanion University and her academic

scores were all quite good…

Jalen said immediately, “What good is the little knowledge from textbooks will do? All undergraduates start working as newbies!”

He randomly picked up a stack of material from that young man’s desk and threw it to Keira. “This is the

new energy project our team is currently working on. Can you understand it? New hires should act like new

hires!”

Keira glanced at the project’s documentation and began flipping through it quickly…

Jalen couldn’t help but say, “You’re turning the pages so fast. Do you think you’re Dr. South? If you can’t understand it, don’t waste everyone’s time! Get back to your office!”

It was rumored that Dr. South had an extraordinary retentive memory and could read very fast.

Upon hearing this, Keira looked up and said coldly, “Who says I can’t understand it?”
