“Why is there a woman in Ben the Tyrant’s room?” they wondered. Then they realized they had forgotten again that Ben just got married. “So, this woman is his wife?” they thought.
As soon as Susan left, Ben sneered and suddenly said, “Is it because I was nice to you earlier today that you’re not taking your job seriously? If you can’t do it well, you can just quit! Kim, explain to me how you got the 10% in your file! Have you lost your mind? How can you make such a stupid mistake?! If I were you, I would go get a surgery for a new brain.”
Ben spoke without showing any mercy.
Kim who was being scolded looked so sad, but he couldn’t help feeling relieved.
After all, if Ben was willing to scold him, it meant that he probably wouldn’t be fired for the time being…
“And you, John, I asked you to develop overseas business, but what did you do? You…
John got tense, preparing to face the condemnation.
Ben, however, softened his tone instantly. “You’ve been working hard for the company. Doing business in the international market is more difficult than in the domestic market. Take your time. Don’t rush.”
John was too shocked to speak.
The next moment, he saw a woman passing by behind Ben, holding a cup of coffee.
The woman sat down next to Ben. People attending the meeting couldn’t see her, but they found that Ben’s attitude changed instantly.
“There is a small problem here. Fix it. If there’s something you don’t understand, ask me privately.
“You did a good job. But tomorrow, I need some more details,” Ben said gently.
The senior managers were all shocked.
“Okay, that’s all for today,” Ben said.
The senior managers were about to respond when Susan, who thought Ben had ended the video call, asked softly, “Ben, are you done?”
Yes. Ben replied.
You are so nice. From the beginning to the end, you pointed out everyone’s mistakes with care and didn’t show any impatience,” Susan said.
All the senior managers were frightened and thought, “No, Mrs. Landor. You must have misunderstood something!”
“It’s alright. Ben said calmly.
Susan suddenly felt sorry for him and said, “People always say you are a tyrant. If a man like you can be called a tyrant, there is no
good–tempered man in the world. It can be seen that public opinion can really confuse right and wrong. You can’t be too kind. You have to learn. to defend yourself.
Susan really felt that public opinion did a lot of harm to Ben.
Because of the rumor outside, she was also afraid of Ben at first.
But what was the truth?
Apart from not being good–looking and sometimes appearing fierce, deep down. Ben was a very kind and good person.
Ben, who was said to be nice and kind, didn’t say anything.
All the senior managers were speechless as well.
Ben suddenly remembered that the video call had not been ended yet. He turned his head and saw the shocked expressions of the senior managers, threatening them with a glance before quickly ending the call. “Oh, wait for me.” Susan suddenly stood up.
After a while, Susan walked back with two plates of spaghetti on the tray in her hand.
“I was hungry, so I went to make some spaghetti. Do you want some too?” Susan asked.
Ben narrowed his eyes.
Did she notice that he hadn’t had dinner yet?
“Here, the fork. Susan handed over the fork.
Ben instinctively took it.
Susan put the plates on the table, stopped talking to him, and ate her own share happily.
To the lid C
She knew that Ben could sometimes be too proud to show his weakness. He had subconsciously rubbed his stomach several times before. Obviously, he was hungry, but he didn’t say anything about it.
Since that was the case, she could only take care of his precious pride. Susan’s cooking skills were quite average, but she had various pre–prepared ingredients in the refrigerator. When she just went to get the coffee, she picked some seafood and put it into the water cooking the spaghetti. After a period of stewing, the spaghetti now had the taste of the seafood, very flavorful.
At first, Susan just wanted to eat a little with Ben so he wouldn’t feel. awkward. She did not expect that after eating for a while, she really felt hungry and could not help eating more and more.
Glancing at her who was immersed in the delicious food, Ben raised his eyebrows and suddenly smiled.
He picked up the fork and gulped the spaghetti like Susan did.
“I didn’t expect that I would have such a talent in cooking.” Susan rubbed her stomach, looking satisfied.
Ben wiped his mouth gracefully. “Nice cooking.”
His serious praise made Susan a little shy, and she coughed awkwardly. “The spaghetti was bought from outside and the ingredients were prepared in advance by the chef. I can’t take credit for that.”
Ben pondered for a moment and then added, “At least, you poured the water into the pot. The spaghetti is so delicious today. It must be because the water you poured is sweet.”
Susan was speechless.
“Alright, I’ll just take it as a compliment,” she thought.
After eating the spaghetti, they cleaned up together. Susan secretly glanced at Ben, and she then became nervous.
Ben looked at her and said slowly, “Shall we go back to the room?”
“Okay,” Susan responded.
They went back to the room in silence.
Ben still didn’t say anything, so Susan went to take a shower and change her clothes first.
Susan was so skinny that even the clothes of the smallest size still looked loose on her, making her look cute and adorable.
Getting Mated To That Co
Ben’s Adam’s apple moved, and he also took his clothes to the bathroom. The bathroom was filled with steam.
Ben wiped the mirror clean and then looked at himself in the mirror in silence.
He had a really scary face.
Everyone was afraid of him, but it seemed that Susan was not.
Thinking of Susan, Ben looked down at the floor.
This woman’s arrival brought something different.
He even had a few moments when he felt happy and ecstatic.
A faint smile appeared on Ben’s face, but he suddenly panicked when he saw it in the mirror.
“I’m smiling. I’m smiling again! I’ve actually accepted Susan’s presence in life in such a short time. This is a very dangerous sign! Warmth, happiness… Those pleasant emotions will only drag me into the abyss of darkness. Everything that happened in the past proved this. Only by being alone forever can I avoid getting hurt!” he thought.
In the mirror, Ben’s eyes gradually darkened.
“I’ve indulged in what Susan brought me. This woman is too dangerous. I must stay away from her!” Ben warned himself like this, and by the time. he came out of the bathroom, he had returned to his usual indifference.
Susan raised her eyes and looked at Ben nervously.
“Nothing happened between us yesterday because we were so tired. What about today? After all, we are already married,” she thought.
Susan sat on the bed, lost in thought.
Ben walked slowly towards her.
Susan’s body tensed up.
Sure enough, she couldn’t avoid this.
She took a few deep breaths to relax herself.
Ben reached out his hand towards her.
Nervous as she was, Susan closed her eyes directly.
However, after waiting for a while, she didn’t feel any touch.
Confused, Susan opened her eyes, only to see Ben holding a pillow and
calmly looking at her.
Mined To The Ice–Cold Cee
He raised the pillow in his hand and said, “I’ll sleep on the couch.”
Susan was stunned for a moment. Yesterday, she slept early and woke up late, so she didn’t know where Ben slept.
So Ben slept on the sofa yesterday?
“He… doesn’t like me? He doesn’t want to touch me?” Susan wondered. There was a strange feeling in her heart.
She felt relieved, but also somewhat inexplicably disappointed.
But ultimately, the feeling of relief prevailed.
Susan said hurriedly, “I’ll sleep on the couch.”
“No.” Ben pressed her shoulder and then went to the couch, holding the pillow.
Susan looked at his departing figure, feeling a bit apprehensive.
Her keen intuition told her that Ben was different from the man eating the spaghetti before.
He seemed… suddenly unhappy?
Susan lay down in the bed, feeling a little anxious.
The thick curtains blocked out all the light, enveloping the room in darkness.
Ben closed his eyes and fell into a deep abyss.
“A man like me shouldn’t have lights around,” he though
