The word was like a thorn piercing her heart. She felt extremely uncomfortable.
Juliet took a deep breath and slowed her tone, "Mr. Payton, I know you're just pretending to be my boyfriend, but I really need your help."
Looking at her pleading gaze, Payton softened. He pretended to ask carelessly, "Just to see your father?"
His question meant that he intended to help her.
Juliet immediately smiled and said, "Yes, just to meet my dad."
Payton thought for a moment, and then he pretended to be indifferent, "Alright, I'll do it. After all, we signed the contract."
Hearing that he agreed, Juliet heaved a sigh of relief. She smiled brightly and sincerely said, "Thank you."
Payton raised his eyebrows and looked over her up and down. A hint of interest appeared in his eyes. "Why are you so polite today?"
Hearing the teasing in his tone, Juliet snorted, "I'm just in a good mood today. Remember what you promised me.”
She turned around and left the office.
Payton watched her walk out and smiled unconsciously. In fact, she was cute when she was being nice to him.
During lunch, Juliet learned from Rosiley that the gossip about her and Payton had spread throughout the company.
"How did it end up like that? Come on, we just entered the company together.” Juliet felt funny and annoyed. People were so good at making up stories today.
Rosiley slowly ate a mouthful of food, then lifted her eyelids and looked at her, "Just entering the company together?”
"What else could happen?" Juliet glanced at her angrily. "We just met outside and came in together."
