Chapter 572 I’m Black Cat
Ruth’s smile was very pure and innocent, making everyone around them unable to keep watching what was happening.
One by one, all of them started to persuade Brenda.
“Captain Brenda, this is work. Why don’t you just cooperate with her? Besides, Ruth’s questionnaire is not hard to answer!”
“Yeah, just cooperate with her! I don’t know what the content of your questionnaire is like, but mine was very simple. Revealing a bit of privacy isn’t much of an issue. Ms. Yale will keep things confidential! The confidentiality agreement we signed is mutual!”
The confidentiality agreements they had signed were all mutual.
In other words, while they were not allowed to reveal to outsiders the content of the questionnaires, Ruth was also forbidden from revealing to others their answers.
Otherwise, it would be a breach of contract.
“Captain Brenda, isn’t Black Cat your idol? Going by what Ruth said, as long as you submit the questionnaire, she will let you meet Black Cat!”
“Yeah, this is such a golden opportunity, Captain Brenda! If Nathan got the chance to meet Black Cat, I’d definitely die of jealousy. But if it’s you, then I definitely won’t be jealous!”
They felt that Brenda was making a mountain out of a molehill. The questionnaire was a psychological one. In other words, it analyzed a person’s psyche by using various small details of their lifestyle. Therefore, the questions would undoubtedly be more lifestyle-oriented.
There was no need to be so serious.
Ruth maintained her innocent girl-next-door image and said, “Yeah, it’s because I heard from Captain Johnson and Captain Ford that you would like to meet Black Cat that I especially kept a place for you. Do you really not want it?”
“… No, I don’t,” replied Brenda.
She was practically forcing those three words through gritted teeth.
When she said that, Ruth sighed and said, “Alright, that’s a real shame.”
Then, she announced the places on the spot and said, “Everyone was very cooperative with the questionnaire. Unfortunately, Black Cat doesn’t like meeting people, so I can only take two people with me to say hi to him! I’ll be talking to Black Cat in a video conference later. The people whose names I call out can join me for the video conference~! Damon, Ernie!”
A huge uproar went through the place.
Everyone looked at Damon and Ernie enviously and remarked resentfully, “What sheer dumb luck they have!”
“Yeah, totally. Ahhhh, I’m so envious! To think they can have a video conference with Black Cat!”
“Goddamnit Damon, you have to treat us to dinner!”
“Ernie, your punishment is that you have to bring us breakfast tomorrow!”
Damon wasn’t bothered. Ernie, however, valued money very much, so he became anxious when he heard what they said. He said, “It’s impossible for me to bring breakfast for all of you! I will only bring it for Captain Brenda! She’s the one who gave me the chance to meet Black Cat. If it weren’t for her refusing to submit the questionnaire, how could the opportunity have come to me?” Those were absolutely the words of an unintentionally insensitive man. He was completely unaware that his words were like a knife that stabbed right into Brenda’s heart.
The others also burst into loud laughter as they jokingly called Ernie shameless, stingy, and so on. Then, they happily sent Ernie to the conference room. Seeing Damon and Ernie being escorted by everyone into the conference room as if they had just won the lottery, Ruth looked behind at Brenda. Then, she turned again and saw Nora walking over.
She cast her eyes down and suddenly said, “Ms. Smith, Ms. Hunt is really going to such great lengths for your sake! She has even given up such a great opportunity. I’m really full of admiration!”
It was for her sake that Brenda had refused to submit the questionnaire?
Could it be that Ruth’s questions to Brenda were all related to Justin?
While she was thinking about it, Brenda said, “Don’t think too much into it, Nora. Besides, even if I do submit the questionnaire, Ruth would still refuse to give me a place anyway. We all know that very well!”
Ruth curled her lips disdainfully. “I’ve already gone so far as to say it in front of so many people. If you had submitted it, I would definitely have saved you a place!”
Brenda lowered her eyes. “It still goes back to the same thing—it’s impossible!”
Seeing how stubborn she was being, Ruth took a deep breath and raised her head. “In that case, I’m very sorry, but I have to go for my video conference with Black Cat now. Goodbye.”
After speaking, she walked past Brenda.
Despite saying that she didn’t give two hoots about it, Brenda kept looking at the conference room. She could hear Damon and Ernie’s loud laughter coming from within. She couldn’t help but wonder what they were talking about…
She clenched her fists, a look of envy coming over her countenance.
To be honest, she really wanted to meet Black Cat.
But she knew that there were some things she must never do!
“Do you really like Black Cat that much?”
Nora’s cool and clear voice rang out beside Brenda’s ear.
Brenda hurriedly said, “It’s just so-so, actually. It’s not like I really, really wanted to meet him. It would be nice if I could, but it doesn’t matter if I can’t! Besides, I’ve already seen him once back then! Who cares about Ruth’s meeting?!”
After speaking, Brenda curled her lips disdainfully and said, “Ruth is so full of sneaky thoughts! Don’t be fooled by her, Nora, she still harbors illusions about Justin!”
Despite saying that, she subconsciously walked over to the conference room. But when she reached the door, she couldn’t help but feel that her actions were simply too immature.
Thus, she turned around and headed to the office.
When the people next to them saw what she did, they couldn’t help but become puzzled and ask, “Captain Brenda, if you wanted to meet Black Cat that much, then why didn’t you agree with Ruth?”
Brenda immediately stubbornly retorted, “Who says I want to meet Black Cat? I don’t want to at all!”
Then, she looked at Nora and said, “What’s the big deal about Black Cat? Can he compare to my harem? To be honest with you, Nora, I still like handsome guys more than Black Cat…”
It was only when one was lying that they would be this long-winded.
Brenda didn’t even notice what she was beginning to repeat herself.
Nora sighed silently when she saw her like this. She suddenly said, “Forget it, I’ll just tell you.”
Brenda was taken aback. “Tell me what?”
“I am Black Cat.”
