Chapter 1006

Not knowing how long she had slept, Minerva turned over and slowly opened her eyes.

What came into sight was a strange but familiar environment. She was slightly stunned. Perhaps it was because she had just woken up so her mind was still a blur.

After a long while, she regained her consciousness slowly. Then, she sat up and looked at her surroundings.

Earlier, she felt strange and familiar because she hadn't been here for a long time. However, a long time ago, she lived here alone for a period of time.

This room was where she and Maddox had stayed.

After his accident, she lived here all alone when she was watching over the company for him.

She didn't expect...

To be back here again.

Although the time period was not long, it felt like a century to her.

Minerva looked around for a while and could not help but let out a sigh.

Her throat felt dry and itchy, as if she hadn't had any water for a long time.

She creased her beautiful brows, recalling what had just happened.

She had been on the plane for more than ten hours, but she barely got any sleep because she didn't feel comfortable on the plane. She only got two hours of actual sleep throughout the flight.

Hence, after getting out of the car and having a meal, she fell asleep due to exhaustion.

She could not remember what had happened after that.

Now that she thought about it, she did not even drink water or rinse her mouth after she finished her meal.

Thinking of this, she panicked. She quickly got out of bed, tied up her long hair, and went into the bathroom to brush her teeth. She didn't know how long she had slept for. She was really too sleepy at that time.

"If it was before I was pregnant, the flight would have been nothing to me," she sighed.

After brushing her teeth, Minerva finally felt her breath turn fresh. She washed her face and left the room.

"Young Madam, you're awake."

The maid's voice came from the side. "Young

Master Yardley told us to prepare breakfast for you." ๐’„๐’๐’Ž๐’†๐’๐’๐™ซ๐’†๐™ก.๐’„๐’๐’Ž

"Okay, where is he?" Minerva asked.

"Mr. Sorrento came to see Young Master Yardley early this morning and brought him to the office. Young Master Yardley said to let you know that you don't have to wait up for him if you're tired. Young Madam, you should rest well."

It turned out that he had gone to the company.

Sam and Maddox had just come back to the country as well.. Why were they not affected by the time difference?

However, it was true that Maddox had been abroad for too long and no one was in charge of the company's affairs. In the past, it was Minerva who took care of the company's affairs on her own while Sam assisted her. Later on, she went abroad too and the burden of the company was placed onto Sam's shoulders.

Having been with Maddox for so many years, Sam was capable of dealing with the company's affairs. In addition, he used to be Maddox's helpful assistant. He had dealt with the company's major investors and higher position staff members. Therefore, they worked well with him based on the experience they had with him before.

At that time, when Minerva had just taken on the position of Vice President, many people were not convinced by her. Not to mention those middlelevel and high-level executives who were roped in by Benedict, even those who were not roped in were dissatisfied with her work. They would often come to her office and make a scene.

In the beginning, it was Sam who suppressed those issues for her.

At that time, her management capabilities were not so strong. She was pregnant, and Maddox's situation was unknown. It was already very difficult for her to stay in the company for eight hours everyday, not to mention handling things.

Moreover, she had never managed such a big company, and it was only with Sam's help that she gradually stabilized her position.

When she thought about it, tears welled up in her heart.

After breakfast, she went back to her room and changed her clothes. She walked around and called her brother, Quill, at the same time. He answered her phone call.

"Maddox had already informed me. How are you feeling?" He sounded caring.Contents belong to NovelDrama.Org

Minerva was stunned for a moment. She quickly guessed that Maddox must have told Quill about her not feeling well on the plane.

"Quill, I had a good rest and now I'm feeling great."

"That's good."

Just as she finished speaking, she heard a familiar female voice coming from the other end of the line.

"President Hanover, the meeting is about to begin."

He frowned slightly. Just as he was about to say something, Minerva spoke first, "Quill, you have a meeting? Go on ahead then, I'll leave you to it." After that, she hung up the phone.

Quill, who was holding his phone, was speechless.

He put away his cell phone and reached out to pinch his eyebrows. He smiled helplessly. "This brat..."

Then, he turned around and walked into the conference room with Juliette.

"Miss Minerva is back?" She asked tentatively.

He nodded. "Yes."

She was a little curious, but when she noticed his impatience, she thought about it and swallowed her words.

She wasn't sure what was wrong with him since he came back this time round. He seemed to be moody and unapproachable. She was afraid that if she said something wrong, it would make him very upset. Content belongs to NovelDrama.Org S

Although Quill rarely lost his temper, his aura had always been steady and restrained. Before this, even if he looked unapproachable on the surface, when she reported to him about work, it just felt like he was being strict as a superior. Content belongs to NovelDrama.Org

However, now, he seemed cold and overbearing.

"What on earth happened to him during the time he went abroad?"

It was just a short period of time. Juliette had a thousand questions in her mind, but she didn't know where to start. She didn't think she was in the right place to question him.

However, when she saw Quill on the call with Minerva earlier, the domineering aura around him had been reined in and was replaced by tolerance and concern for his loved one.

After hanging up the phone, he switched back to being cold.

What was going on? Alas.

After Minerva hung up the phone, she sat down by the water idly. It was winter now, so she did not put her feet into the water like she used to do in the summer. She could only sit by the water to bask in the sun and enjoy the view of the sea. Content belongs to NovelDrama.Org

She made a video call to Beanie.

The mother and son talked for a long time. After that, Jarold came to look for Beanie and their call ended.

After hanging up the video call, Minerva felt that she was sleepy again, so she went back to sleep.

In the next few days, she spent every day in boredom. She had completely forgotten the fact that she had a company.

That was until Vera found her and told her that she wanted to resign.

It was only then that Minerva realized the importance of the matter.

"Why do you want to resign all of a sudden?"

Minerva looked at Vera in confusion. "Isn't it good that you're managing the company now?"

Vera shook her head and sighed, "I haven't visited my parents in a long time, so I want to go look for them. I won't be able to manage the company

for a while."

Minerva pursed her lips and did not reply.

"Minerva, I know it's bad timing for me to ask for a resignation, but..."
