Rachel frowned slightly.

She was actually about to ask if she just misunderstood it, but she didn't expect to hear Celia's cold voice. With an expressionless face, she said, "Rachel, I'm very busy here. Please leave me alone."

When Rachel looked at her, the look on her face was like saying, "You are not welcome here."

Without saying anything more, Rachel nodded, turned around, and walked out of the pharmacy. She was on her way back to her office when Mindy, who was about to end her shift, grabbed her arm.

She yawned, leaned her head over, and asked, "Rachel, I saw you just went in to see Celia. Did she still look unhappy?"


Rachel was not the type of person who liked gossip. But since she was really curious about Celia, she couldn't help asking, "Do you know what's wrong with her, Mindy?"

Mindy turned to look at the pharmacy first before she pulled Rachel to her office. After closing the door, she said in a low voice, "Rachel, everyone in the hospital is talking about Celia now. I bet you don't know about it because you seldom talk with your colleagues here. Besides, you got off work early yesterday."

Turning her head slightly, Rachel looked at Mindy with an earnest expression on her face. She couldn't figure out what was going on with Celia, so she asked in confusion, "What are they talking about her?"

Mindy's eyes widened in surprise as she said exaggeratedly, "How come that you don't know? You are the closest to Celia in this hospital. Everyone is saying that she hooks up with a handsome and rich man, which is why her father can work in MK Group. Isn't it a good thing for her?"

Rachel's heart skipped a beat after hearing what Mindy said.

As she recalled Celia's reaction just now, she could say that the latter had surely misunderstood her.

The expression on her face changed slightly. She hid the unusual look in her eyes and said indifferently, "I don't think it should be a big deal. Celia's father made it to MK Group all because of his own ability."

Mindy was stunned. Her mouth twitched before it curved into an awkward smile. "Rachel, since you don't seem to believe what everyone is saying, I have nothing else to say."

Looking at her back as she slammed the door, the creased in Rachel's eyebrows got deepened. She had some explaining to do to Celia after work.

She planned to talk to Celia after work, but to her surprise, Celia came to her first.

After eating lunch in the canteen, Rachel went back to her office immediately. As soon as she opened the door, she saw Celia standing inside with her head down. Unfortunately, she couldn't see the expression on her face.

She threw the tissue into the trash can first before she asked, "Celia, have you eaten lunch already?"


Celia called her name in a low voice. She raised her head, and Rachel saw her red eyes welling up in tears. She asked resentfully, "Why did you tell others about what happened between Marcus and me? Why did you tell them that my father was able to work in MK Group because of him? Why did yo

on Tracy's face, she quickly added, "He was in a hurry, so he didn't have time to tell you. But I guess he'll call you as soon as he arrives in the US."

As a mother, no matter how old her son was, Tracy couldn't help feeling bad that he went on a business trip without even informing any of them except his wife.

But when her expression gradually returned to normal, Rachel asked with a smile, "Is Dad in his study right now? He called me and said he has something to tell me. I should go upstairs to see him first."

Rachel knocked at the door of the study three times before she opened it. However, Jonathan was not there. She turned around and was about to go to his bedroom to check, but she saw him coming with his watching stick. "I just came out of the dining room when you came in. Didn't you see me?"

With a sweet smile on her lips, she replied, "No, I didn't."

Pointing at the study, Jonathan immediately asked, "Is there a woman named Celia in your department? Is she the sister of that little boy you took home a few years ago?"

"Yes, Dad."

Rachel then frowned slightly and looked at Jonathan in silence.

He never asked anything about her work in the hospital. But today, he suddenly asked her to come over just to ask about Celia.

Jonathan slowly walked to his desk and sat down. He then glanced at Rachel and said indifferently, "I don't want you to get close to her from now on."

He never asked her to choose her friends before. In the past, it was even he who encouraged her to make friends with others because he always said that she was a dull person.

For the first time, he made it clear that he didn't want her to be close to a specific person.

Rachel almost couldn't believe her ears, so she asked, "Why?"

Jonathan opened the drawer on his right and took out the envelope. Handing it to her, he said with a sigh, "The two children of the Xu family are both excellent. However, they don't know how to choose the people they should get involved with. They don't have any idea about it at all."
