To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 2

Chapter 2 Showing Up

On the next day, at the president’s office of the Faust Group, Vincent Duncan hung up the phone. He turned to look at the man sitting behind the desk, who was preoccupied with work.

“Mr. Alec, I received a call from home informing us that the divorce decree has been issued.”

The words did nothing to stop Alec’s hands from busying themselves with work.

“Okay. How much money did she want?”

“Warren said that she didn’t ask for a single penny.”

Hearing that, Alec frowned immediately.

“Not even a single penny?”

“Yes, Warren told me that Old Mr. Faust wanted to pay her a sum of money, but she refused it.”

Even Vincent, who was Alec’s assistant, was surprised by the turn of events. After all, according to his sources, Jenny was from the countryside and was very likely from a poor family. Why did she ask for nothing?

Alec stopped paging through the documents as he pondered for a moment. Finally, he said, “Find out where she is and give her the house in Charmford.”

His ex-wife had been quiet for the past two years and never caused him any trouble. In addition, the divorce was completed smoothly, so there was no reason for him to treat her harshly.

Vincent nodded in acknowledgment of his instructions. However, he did not leave the room.

“Anything else?” asked Alec with a deep frown when he saw him standing there.

“Yes,” replied Vincent. Under the intense gaze of the Faust Group’s president, cold sweat broke across his skin. Hurriedly, he continued, “I just received news that Dr. Walter has finally reappeared after disappearing two years ago.”

Vincent noticed a change in Alec’s expression.

“When did this happen?”

“I was notified this morning.”

“Get someone to investigate the matter immediately. Make sure you find Dr. Walter at all costs, dead or alive!”

Vincent quickly replied, “Sure, Mr. Alec.”

Early in the morning, everyone in the Parrington Hospital was engaged in a deep discussion.

“Who do you think the new deputy director of the neurosurgery department will be? Do you think it’s a man or a woman? Do you think they’ll be easy to get along with?”

“Who knows? Given the fact that they landed such a high position, they are either an expert in their field or…” answered a female staff member, giggling. It was clear what she implied.

“I heard that they’re very young. I think they got the position through their connections.”

“I think so too,” agreed the rest.

After all, working in the medical industry was no different than working in other sectors—experience was the key to promotion. Since many of the staff members at Parrington Hospital could not assume the role of the deputy director despite working there for decades, the newly elected deputy director was the newest subject of their gossip.

Amidst their discussion, a nurse ran over to them.

“The deputy director is here! She’s really beautiful!” said the nurse.

Surprised to hear that, the crowd flocked to the Department of Neurosurgery, hoping to witness the divine beauty of the department’s new deputy director.
