The CEO’S Unplanned Heir ( Aurelia Hawthorne ) Chapter 157

Chapter 157 

“Word has it you’re quite popular with the guys at the office, huh?”

His tone was chilling, sending a shiver down Aurelia’s spine as if the sun shining on her skin had suddenly

turned cold.

She was certain he wasn’t paying her a compliment. Everything about his tone and manner suggested

sarcasm.

“I get along with the ladies too, you know. Except for a few in our department.”

Interpersonal relationships at work were delicate. As long as there were no conflicts of interest or personality clashes, a superficial harmony could be maintained. But true friendships were few.

Leopold twisted open a bottle of spring water, taking a sip to cool his temper.

“Should I be praising you for being a smooth operator then?”

That was definitely not a compliment!

Aurelia pulled a face, giving a sheepish grin, “I’m just a bit sociable, not a smooth operator. I’m naive and don’t play mind games.”

Yeah, right!

A hint of mockery appeared on Leopold’s face. She was full of tricks, and she had nothing to do with the

word “innocent“.

“Remember, there’s a boundary between men and women. Don’t be too casual with male colleagues to avoid unnecessary criticism.”

Aurelia was taken aback.

He was born privileged, so he could afford to act aloof and indifferent to everyone.

But she couldn’t.

She had no money or connections, everything she had was earned through hard work. Networking, connections, resources, all required her full effort to establish, maintain, and acquire.

Moreover, she had never behaved inappropriately!

“I haven’t done anything inappropriate. It’s just normal communication and courtesy among colleagues. You’re so used to being worshipped from your high pedestal, you wouldn’t understand how us normal folks socialize. If we act tog prim, we’ll be ostracized and have no friends.”

A frown creased Leopold’s handsome face.

He couldn’t understand why he felt irritated whenever he saw her laughing and chatting with other men.

She had never shown such joy in front of him.

“You’re not an average person anymore.”

Being his wife in name meant she was no longer an average person. She had to behave properly and uphold

the traditional virtues of a wife!

Aurelia made a face. Their brief relationship hadn’t changed anything.

She would always be an average person. Every step forward required relentless effort.

At this moment, Gary returned. He had been to the bathroom, and seeing the big boss sitting in his seat

scared him off to the beach.

Evelyn, who had been at the beach, noticed Leopold had moved and quickly came over to sit next to him.

“Leo, why did you move here?“

“I can see better from here,” Leopold replied indifferently.

Aurelia quickly adjusted her expression to a pleasing one, pulling out an orange from her bag, “Mr. Leopold, would you like an orange? It’s very sweet.”

“No, thank you.”

Leopold knew she was acting, but he wasn’t ready to play along yet. He was still annoyed.

Aurelia put down the orange and pulled out a bottle of juice, “How about some juice then? It’s quite hot today, you’ll be thirsty soon.”

Evelyn was a bit surprised. Was this woman trying to win Leo’s favor by fawning over him?

“Manager Aurelia, Mr. Leopold only drinks pure juice, not flavored drinks with additives.”

“This is pure juice, organic, without any additives.”

Aurelia pointed to the organic label on the bottle seriously.

The juice was bought by Leopold, actually.

He forbade her from eating junk food, fearing it would affect the babies‘ health. Everything she ate was handpicked by him.

With a grin, Aurelia turned to Leopold, “Mr. Leopold, let me open it for you.”

She twisted open the cap and handed the bottle to him respectfully.

Her subservient manner both amused and irritated Leopold. He reluctantly took a sip to cool down.

Evelyn then noticed that the juice was the brand Leo often drank.

It seemed Aurelia had been keeping tabs on his preferences.

She was more cunning than she initially thought!
