Submitting To My Billionaire Ex-Wife by Allison Mild Chapter 174

Chapter 174

With that, Genevieve glanced at Jasper and stood up.

“Let’s move the meeting to this afternoon.” With this phrase and nothing more, she left.

What happened in the conference room didn’t upset her.

Not only had Jeffrey prepared her for this, but he also gave her the power to deal with it.

‘While I’m a newcomer, I’m in charge.

‘I can’t get rid of everyone on the first day. I need to give others a chance after making an example of someone,” she thought.

Eric, the project department’s director, hurriedly arrived at the office 20 minutes later, full of sweat and with a pale face.

He looked disheveled in his loungewear.

He tried coming in, but Jasper stopped him.

Eric’s attitude was different from before.

He had dialed Jeffrey to check after hanging up on Jasper.

Jeffrey’s assistant answered the call instead of Jeffrey. He told Eric, “Genevieve’s decision is final.”

These words undoubtedly sent a shiver down Eric’s spine.

He didn’t want to lose employment as a middle–aged man. It wasn’t easy to find a job.

Therefore, he rushed to the office without changing his clothes.

“Let me see Ms. Lawrence. It’s hard to explain things on the phone. There may be some misunderstandings. Let me explain myself to her,” he pleaded.

Jasper’s reply was distant and polite. “Mr. Lawson, please visit the HR department to discuss your severance package. Ms. Lawrence is busy and couldn’t see you.”

“Please help me, Jasper. I didn’t attend the meeting because I had an emergency. I’ll explain to Ms. Lawrence I meant no disrespect…” Eric tried to get in, but Jasper guarded the door tightly.

Genevieve dialed Sullivan of Eagle Entertainment in her office, as if she wasn’t aware of the situation outside.

“Uncle Sullivan. How’re you there? How’s the new director?” she asked.

Sullivan sighed and answered. “He’s okay. With me watching his every move, he dares not do anything funny.”

The director of Eagle Entertainment was a former employee of a well–known foreign entertainment company. While he was capable, he had many dangerous ideas.

Sullivan had to watch him carefully before allowing him to work with more freedom.

Genevieve hummed. “Did those shareholders give you a hard time when I took the project with me?”

Sullivan sneered and raised his voice. “How dare they? You built that project, and it hasn’t even started. They have no right to say anything. Don’t worry,” he replied. “Your parents said you work in Lawrence Group, and your brother is abroad. Be careful there. It’s harder to handle those in Lawrence Group than Eagle Entertainment.”

Genevieve understood him and smiled. “Yes…”

Someone opened the door before she could finish.

Eric somehow managed to sneak past Jasper.

Jasper didn’t expect Eric to be so shameless. As Eric walked out, he suddenly turned around and barged into Genevieve’s office.

Jasper was furious.

Genevieve hung up after speaking to Sullivan.

She saw the disheveled and embarrassed Eric when she turned.

Contrary to his arrogance during the phone call, his appearance was pitiful.

Genevieve looked at Jasper calmly.

“It’s okay. Why don’t you bring Mr. Lawson a cup of coffee?” she said.

While Genevieve addressed him the same, she sounded cold and distant compared to her earlier, more

respectful tone.

Eric’s heart sank as he felt a sense of crisis.

Chapter 174

He understood Genevieve was not joking.

She needed to make an example of someone, and he, arrogant and reckless, was perfect for her agenda.

The seated Eric became anxious immediately.

“Let me explain my behavior on the phone, Ms. Lawrence. I think you misunderstood me,” he said.

Genevieve glanced at him coolly. “Didn’t you sprain your ankle, Mr. Lawson? You look healthier than a normal person!” She snorted sarcastically.

Blushing, Eric felt uncomfortable after being exposed.

“You seem to recover extremely quickly. No injury to the tendons or bones.” Genevieve smiled and looked away, her tone casual and indifferent.

Eric’s heart sank. He still tried to defend himself.

“Ms. Lawrence.” His tone was more respectful now. “I’m unclear on the phone. I fully support Jeffrey’s decision. I can immediately order my department to start working on the project you brought. Of course, it’ll have priority.”

He continued, “I was joking on the phone. I didn’t know you were there. I was talking nonsense because I drank too much at a social event last night.”

Genevieve stared at him coldly.

“Your replacement would listen to orders better if I replaced you. The company can run without you,” she stated indifferently.

Eric’s expression changed. He smiled apologetically and said through gritted teeth, “Ms. Lawrence, I’m sorry for what happened this morning. Could you overlook this for once?”

He apologized and admitted his mistake without hesitation because he sensed Genevieve wanted to make him an example.

If he truly lost his job, he would lose his current status and position, even if he could find a new job.

Therefore, he had to swallow his pride.

Genevieve’s cold stare at him was spine–tingling. Finally, she said, “Since you’re apologizing sincerely, you should set an example. Write a self–reflection report and send it to every employee’s email. Please read it at the afternoon meeting, too.”

She sounded calm while giving out a punishment that was only a slap on the wrist. He also didn’t expect to keep

his bonus.

However, such punishment would tell the entire company what he had done, and he would indeed be the example she wanted to set.

This was trampling on his dignity.

Eric’s expression changed visibly. He wanted to continue the topic.

However, he shut up when he saw Genevieve’s eyes.

He knew what she meant. If he didn’t do that, he would be fired.

He was not irreplaceable in the company.

“Okay, I’ll do as you say, Ms. Lawrence. I’ll write it once I get home!” Eric smiled sheepishly.

Genevieve smiled with satisfaction. “It must be profound, all right?”

“Understood.” Eric also smiled. He finally felt relieved.

He would never imagine a young lady to torment him so. She had taught him a lesson with just a few words.

‘Genevieve isn’t a pushover!‘ he thought.

Jasper looked at Eric coldly from the sidelines. With a thankful gesture, Eric smiled at him before leaving.

Jasper knocked on Genevieve’s door and went in. He saw Genevieve brushing Goldie’s fur.

Goldie was territorial. It behaved well like a cat when Genevieve was around. Once out of her office, it explored its surroundings while wagging its tail, claiming the place as its home.

Jasper entered and asked, “Ms. Lawrence, are you keeping Mr. Lawson?”

“Yes. He’s desperate, and I don’t want to corner him until he hurts the company. By the way, have you made an appointment with Jacinta of Cosmo Group?” Genevieve asked with a smile.

Jasper paused and shook his head in embarrassment.

Genevieve stopped smiling and lowered her gaze. Her eyes were gentle and calm, but her tone was frigid.

“Anthony is messing with us,” she said.
