As Balfour took the documents from Ellinor, he gave his little brother a cold glance, “Keep working on your homework, kiddo.”
Stung by his brother’s rebuke, Byran kept his head down and continued to work, not making a peep.
Balfour skimmed through the sales plan Ellinor had put together. He paused and squinted his eyes, seemingly impressed by her business savvy.
After a moment, he raised an eyebrow, looking at her with a bit of skepticism, “Did you do this yourself?”
Ellinor nodded. “Yes, Mr. Howard. After visiting the market with Mr. Rex yesterday, I had some ideas and put together this plan for you. If you’re okay with it, I’ll move forward”
Balfour gave her a cold, mocking smile, “Not bad. But a bit of an overkill.”
Ellinor frowned, “Why?”
Balfour closed the folder, “Food is just a small part of our business. We’re not expecting to make waves with it, so there’s no need to go overboard with marketing.”
Ellinor looked at the folder on the table, chuckled, and voiced her thoughts.
“Even though you made me sales manager, you didn’t give me much power. I can’t touch most of the company’s operations.
But I believe I should do my best at what I can do. I didn’t make this plan as a way to slack off. Whether we go with it or not is up to you.
I heard that the food is just a hobby of yours because your favorite little sister liked the snacks our company made. That’s why we’ve been making small
If we could make it even better and get more people to like it, I think your sister would be happy to see others enjoy it as much as she does.
But hey, that’s just my two cents. Take it or leave it.”
After hearing Ellinor’s words, Balfour looked at her, his eyes expressing an indescribable emotion.
Ellinor interpreted his look as dissatisfaction with her presence, and the fact that she was still breathing.
Yesterday, the guys Balfour sent didn’t off her, and she narrowly escaped. Showing up today unscathed must’ve been a sore sight for Balfour.
Balfour stayed silent for a while, then said, “Alright, I’ll consider your plan. You can go now.”
Without saying more, Ellinor turned around and left.
Byran lifted his head to sneak a peek at Ellinor’s retreating figure. He furrowed his brows, puzzled by why she was working at his brother’s company.
When Ellinor stepped out of the CEO’s office, she ran into Patricia, who was there to see her brother.
Patricia was holding some food and chatting away with the new secretary at the office entrance.
Unlike her cold attitude toward Ellinor, the secretary seemed quite chummy with Patricia, showering her with compliments about how pretty she looked and how nice her clothes were, all while being very polite and respectful.
When Ellinor emerged, the door made a soft noise, and the two naturally turned to look.
Upon seeing Ellinor, neither of them looked too friendly, one was full of disdain, and the other was full of hostility.
