In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 38

I wasn’t given the position of director right from the start, but had worked my a** off these two years to earn it. But of course, to outsiders, I was someone who used my title as Mrs. Fuller to climb through the ranks.

That was especially the case for Joe, who assumed I relied on Ashton to gain the position of director. Hence, he greatly looked down on me.

I shot a fleeting glance at the documents in his hands, noting that it was a plan about electronic technology. It seemed like there was going to be a new product launch soon.

“Mr. Quinn, you’re taking it a little too far with your jokes. How could Fuller Corporation ever become something else? I simply took two days off from work because I wasn’t feeling well, so I’m very touched that you’re so concerned about a mere director like me, Mr. Quinn. Though, it looks like you’re quite busy with work, so it’s better if you focus on getting it done. If you have too many things on your mind, you’d inevitably make mistakes, don’t you agree?”

There were only three of us in the elevator, and I didn’t intend to let him trample on me. However, his secretary was present after all, so I felt quite awkward getting into an argument with him here.

Just as he was about to respond, the elevator doors opened, causing him to bite back his retort. In the end, he only shot me a cold glare and stepped out.

Back in my own office, before I could even settle down, Stacey came in. “Ms. Stovall, Mr. Fuller wants to see you in his office.”

My butt hasn’t even warmed my seat. How did Ashton know that I’ve arrived at the company?

Shaking off my bewilderment, I nodded and replied, “Alright. I’ll head up in a bit.”

In Ashton’s office.

Without a single soul here, the large and spacious office area was quiet and empty. I pursed my lips, thinking that only Ashton could stand working in such an environment.

After scanning the area, I spotted Joseph in the secretary’s office with his eyes fixated on his computer, busy with something. I walked over and knocked on his door.

He raised his head and looked over, slightly taken aback when he saw that it was me. “Ms. Stovall, Mr. Fuller is in Mr. Quinn’s office. He’ll be back soon.”

I nodded. “Alright. Don’t mind me.”

Then, I went into Ashton’s office and took a book from the shelf before sitting in the lounging area to read it. After the project with Dr. Ludwick was completed, a lot of things had cropped up, so the company hadn’t yet arranged any more projects for me.

I assumed that Ashton called me here to assign me work for the days ahead.

When I thought about my plans for this period of time, I began to feel conflicted. It would have been so much easier if Ashton remained cold and impassive to me like he always did. However, his attitude toward me had taken a drastic turn recently, causing me to have second thoughts.

If I leave now, would my child and I be missing out on something good?

“Ashton, when Parker died, you promised you’d take care of Rebecca. Don’t you think you’re breaking your promise to him by treating Rebecca like that? Have you ever considered Rebecca’s feelings? Besides, that woman Scarlett isn’t even compatible with you, no?” The voice that spoke was anxious and rushed. I could instantly tell that it belonged to Joe.

I wasn’t eavesdropping, but they just happened to walk in. Not to mention, Joe spoke so loudly, so it was inevitable.

Ashton and Joe entered the office just then. Upon seeing me, Ashton raised his brows. “When did you arrive?”

“Just now.” I gave Joe a sidelong glance and spied the indifferent look on his face.

“Two companies under HiTech will be launching new products this month. Follow up with them and keep tabs on OrbitTech as well,” Ashton said to me. He took a file from his table and handed it to me before continuing, “Also, the company’s annual review is approaching. Our contract with AC Credit is ending, so go check with finance. If we need to continue the collaboration, follow up with them. If not, go to Harrison Credit and discuss it with their boss, Nick Harrison.”

“Hasn’t everything with AC Credit been going well? Why switch to another audit firm?” Joe interjected and asked in confusion, “Besides, Harrison Credit is only a recently established small company. Letting them handle Fuller Corporation’s complicated financial structure is risky. If something goes wrong, things will get messy.”

Without answering Joe, Ashton said to me, “Look over these documents. Find Joseph if you have any questions.”

I wordlessly took the documents from him, but I shared the same worries as Joe. Hesitating for a moment, I finally decided to voice it out. “Mr. Fuller, I was previously in charge of constructions. HiTech is an electronic technology company, and I’ve never once handled the company’s audit. Joseph has always been the one who handled these things, so I think it’s better if he continues doing it.”

Ashton’s eyes pierced through me as he frowned. “Ms. Stovall, are you clear about your responsibilities as a director?”

Slightly stunned, I nodded at him. “I am, but…”

“No buts. Since you’re a director as well as a shareholder of the company, you are entitled to familiarize yourself with any part of the company.”

With that, he looked at Joe and began giving him his orders.

I held the documents, aware that there was no way for me to back out of this. I also realized that the workload this time was unusually heavy.

Back in my office, I called for Stacey and got her to make the arrangements for me to her best capabilities. During this period of time, we had to observe HiTech’s market, so we would probably be very busy for the upcoming days.
