I've Been There Before (Grace and Caden) novel Chapter 13

Grace was on tenterhooks when standing in front of Caden. Someone knocked on the door a while later, Cadens magnetic voice rang, 'Come in.

Grace stared at the one who just came in as panic as her--lt was Gloria, the interviewer she met three months ago.

"Good day, Gloria." Grace said while hiding the tension in her heart. She carefully peeked at Caden who was leaning against the armchair, and then turned her eyes to the suddenly appeared Gloria. Her heart was racing for not knowing what's the mysterious marrs intention.

"Good day, Mr. Shaw." Gloria was in a well-fitting white suit that did not diminish her charms but perfectly outlined her big boob. She was servile and submissive when facing Caden, she said, "How may l help you, sir?”

Glorias manner toward Caden was a little strange in Grace's eyes as if Gloria was Caderrs subordinate... The fact was that Caden really was Glorias big boss. Three years in prison made Grace isolated from the world which had been turned upside down.

"Do you know her?" Caden raised his chin towards Grace. Glorias face paled a little, and she stole a glare at Grace, who had greatly impressed her before.

Gloria pulled the corners of her mouth to give a forced smile, “Mr. Shaw, did Grace offend you? Please don't get mad at her, I must teach her a good lesson for this."

Grace knew that Gloria was interceding for her. She had expected that Gloria, who was known for her harshness, would fire her at once, instead of speaking for her in front of Caden. She could not help but feel surprised and appreciate Gloria.

Gloria glared at Grace again. She risked helping her only because Grace had been hard-working while being obedient without causing her any trouble. She was wondering how the ignoble Grace would offend one she shouldnt offend the most.

Their interactions clearly caught his sharp black eyes.

Cadens dark eyes grew sullen at Gloria, Who was her interviewer?"

Gloria turned pale with large beads of sweat flowing down her forehead.

"Hmm?” He snorted and regarded Gloria with a pale face suspiciously.

"Me, lt was me, Mr. Shaw. I interviewed and hired her personally.' In fact, things such as Interviewing candidates were usually not her job. What was wrong with her that day! It had been two or three years since she hadn't interviewed the applicants in person. There must be something wrong with her that night she hired her.

Gloria was so regretful that she blamed herself now. With the manner of Mr. Shaw toward Grace, she must have pissed him off. Since Gloria had worked for Mr. Shaw for years, she could tell he was taking it seriously with anger.

"You hired her? As a cleaner?" Cadens slender brow raised slightly while Glorias face bathed in sweat because of fear. Her whole body was numb yet she didn't dare to wipe off her sweat.

She told the truth carefully, “During the interview, based on Miss .James”s performance which was not up to any of the other positions at Royal Club, not even fit to be an attendant...' Gloria said awkwardly, 'But Miss .James herself offered to apply for a cleaner here."

Gloria raised her head suddenly and added, "Mr. Shaw, Grace has been working so hard and efficiently since she started to work here.

People with the status of Gloria had long ignored the grass-roots staff. But somehow Giloria had a special feeling for Grace James was.

She was living in a different world from this lowly and pity woman, but somehow she felt they had something in common that she couldn't figure out what it is no matter how many times she thought about it.

After she blurted out what she said, Gloria finally awoke in shock. She peeked at Caden nervously.
