I've Been There Before (Grace and Caden) novel Chapter 18


Gloria didn't dare to blame Caden since he was her boss. But when she looked at Grace, her gaze showed that she was feeling sad for her.


Had this woman offended her boss so that he treated her in this manner cruelly?


A trace of complicated emotion flashed in Gloria's eyes as she watched Gloria limping away with one hand on the wall.


The money and the bank card in her hands seemed to bear burning temperature.


Gloria turned around and rushed to her office. She put the bank card and all the notes into the safe and felt that the burning pain on her palms finally vanish after doing all these.


When Gloria opened the door of Room 606, she almost bumped into Caden.


“President Shaw.” Gloria greeted him respectfully. Caden softly uttered a word, “Yeah”, and then walked pass her and headed towards outside.


When Gloria stepped into the room, she heard those guests talking about Gloria. “That woman is so lowly and cheap! I've dated numerous women and see various kinds of greedy women, but le never seen a woman who would throw her dignity and act so lowly to get the money. Tsk..."


“Yeah, when l saw her lying on all fours wagging her tail degradingly, I felt the impulse to kick her. Why could she be so shameless and degrade herself to that point, just to earn the rewards? l've never seen a person acting like this!”


Gloria wanted to refute them!


That was not the casel


lf Grace loves money above everything else, how could she casually give her all the money without any reluctance as soon as she walked out of the room?


lf Grace loves money above everything else, she could choose to keep the money. How would she give her all the money and leave without even glancing at it?


Grace felt so tired. She went back to the dressing room, undressed the clown costume, and changed into her own clothes.


She felt so uncomfortable with the sticky sweats on her forehead, and walked into the washroom of the dressing room, turned on the faucet, and cupped a handful of water to wash her face.


Then a gust of wind blew over... Grace stiffly loòoked at the man from the mirror, and subconsciously clenched her fists.


“President Shaw."


Seeing from the mirror, the man was staring at her expressionlessly.


After a long while, he chuckled, “Heh, you have more self-knowledge. That place is really a good place to educate misbehaved people.”


Then a big hand gently landed on Grace's face, covering her cheek.


He slowly stroked her bloodless face with his thumb, and curled his lips into a cold smirk, “Unluckily, it's too late. Grace .James, our arrogant lady of the James family. Haha, you deserve it. lÝ you could behave yourself three years ago, you won't suffer this kind of humiliation today. Am I right?”


Graces heart missed one beat... She knew what he meant.
