The maid stopped and answered, “Madam Pamela is leaving, ma’am.”
‘Grandma is leaving?’ thought Corinne.
She began fearing for the worst, worried that what Francine did yesterday had scarred Pamela. Just then, she heard her calling her name softly.
She looked up and saw Pamela walking over slowly to her.
“Grandma, I heard that you’re leaving,” Corinne said.
Pamela smiled kindly and sighed helplessly. “That’s right. I need to go back to your grandfather. That stubborn old man refused to listen, even after he had just had his operation. He doesn’t follow the doctor’s orders when I’m not around, so I need to go back and keep an eye on him.”
“I see.” Once Corinne knew that was the reason why Pamela had to go back, she knew better than to ask her to stay longer. “Grandma, you have to look after yourself too. Have a safe journey home.
Pamela nodded and held Corinne’s hand softly. “Corinne, I know you’ve been through a lot after you married Jeremy. Francine had gone too far. Don’t worry. When she’s released, I’ll send someone to pick her up and send her to let her grandfather so he’ll lecture her. I won’t let her stay here anymore and cause more trouble for you two.”
It was rare to have an old lady, who loved her granddaughter so much, to acknowledge her granddaughter had been mean to another person.
Corinne was touched by Pamela’s thoughtfulness. “Thank you for being so understanding.”
“Oh, and Corinne? After I leave, you and Jeremy have to keep on working hard, too!”
‘Work hard?’ Corinne was baffled by this.
When she saw the meaningful smile on Pamela’s face, she quickly realized what she was implying. She thus blushed.
Nonetheless, she forced a smile. “Oh, aha… Don’t worry, we will!”
Pamela was thrilled to hear this. “Then, I’ll be waiting for the good news!”
Corinne replied, “Okay…”
Pamela was bound to be disappointed because there was never going to be good news from her and Jeremy. The next time Pamela would return, her contract with Jeremy would probably draw -to a close, and she would have to leave.
Jeremy had instructed Tommy to send Pamela to the airport.
Pamela had been kind to Corinne the whole time she was with them, so Corinne decided to go to the airport together and send her off.
When she bid her farewell to Pamela and left the airport, Tommy passed her a job application form in the car.
“Miss Carew. Sir has asked me to arrange a job for you because he knows you’ll need to look for a job since you’ve graduated,” Tommy said.
Surprised, Corinne raised an eyebrow and looked at the form. “So what kind of job do you intend to give me?”
Tommy started the car engine and answered, “Miss Carew, please fill out this form first. I’ll let the human resource department arrange a suitable job for you based on your preference.”
It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work in Holden Group. However, Corinne was not that interested in it.
The thought that she could be freed from Jeremy’s control during the three months struck her all of a sudden.
‘Why don’t I follow his arrangement and make use of the time, though?’ she thought.
She placed the form on the seat and said, “I’m not going to fill it. I don’t care what job it is, as long as the pay is high enough!”
Tommy admitted he admired Corinne for being so direct. His lips stretched and said, “Err… Alright. I’ll bring you to get started after I arrange everything.”
“No. Let’s go do it now. There’s nothing for me to do when I go back anyway!” Corinne insisted.
Thus, Tommy drove the car to head toward a subsidiary under Holden Group.
