My Mommy Became A Billionaire After her Breakup

Chapter – 15
The Rat Was Found Out
Byron didn’t stop his footsteps.
He went straight to the elevator.
After seeing Byron leave, everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
“Where is Mr. Crawford going? He doesn’t ask Miss Holland or you to go with him.”
Liam lowered his voice. “Pick up Miss Ross at the airport.”
Everyone kept silent for a moment.
“Alas, it’s really unfair to Miss Newton,” someone muttered.
Liam said seriously, “Lena, never say this again. If someone who dislikes you hears it, you will lose your job!”
Lena quickly shut up.
The elevator reached the lower ground first floor. When Byron walked out, he would see his exclusive parking space.
He got in the car.
He seldom drove. This car was used by Athena most of the time.
There was nothing of hers in the car now.
Also, nothing of hers was left in his home.
Athena packed up all her things.
He could still smell her, although he couldn’t see her things.
There was still a faint, unique fragrance on Athena’s body left in the car.
At first, Byron always thought that Athena was wearing perfume.
As time passed, he realized that even if she just finished a shower, she still smelt good.
Athena took medicine?
Was she ill? Why did she need to take medicine?
Thinking about it, Byron was irritated.
Just as he was about to start the car, several people passed by his car.
They were Athena, Eric from the sales department, and some others Byron didn’t know.
Soon, people outside found Byron in the car.
Everyone was nervous.
But Athena was different.
She looked sideways and slightly nodded at Byron with a cold expression.
Compared with the previous few days, Athena was more indifferent to him.
Byron suddenly remembered what Gideon had told him.
Athena had told Gideon that Byron had bullied her.
His heart felt like it was stuffed with cotton.
He waved his hand coldly, signaling the people outside to leave.
Byron started the car and drove away.
When his gaze swept across the rearview mirror, he couldn’t hold back and fixed his eyes on Athena.
Byron suddenly found Athena was so thin.
How could Athena not get ill since she was so thin?
Seeing Byron leave, Eric breathed a sigh of relief.
Then he said, “Miss Newton, does Mr. Crawford know you got back the deal with Maxwell Electronics?”
“Yes.” Athena nodded. “When I talked with Mr. Maxwell, he was there.”
Everyone looked at one another.
And their eyes suddenly became subtle.
All of them thought Byron had helped Athena behind the scenes.
According to the rumors, Byron had dumped her. Wasn’t it true?
Now, Esme regretted it a little.
She thought if she had known that Athena still had Byron as a backer, she would never have dared to mess with Athena!
Athena didn’t bother to explain it.
She wasn’t feeling well now because she didn’t sleep well last night and didn’t eat well at noon.
“Miss Newton, you look unwell. Are you Okay?” Esme asked with concern.
“I’m fine,” Athena said and went straight to the car.
It was not until four o’clock in the afternoon that the contract was signed.
And Eric didn’t expect Maxwell Electronics to increase the investment amount by one-third.
The reason lay in the content that Athena had changed.
To make it perfectly, the investment amount must be increased.
After walking out of the meeting room, Eric gave Athena a thumbs-up. “Miss Newton, you he away. Since you no longer in the Office of the President, why don’t you come to the sales department?”
Before Athena could speak, a deep voice came from behind.
“The sales department of Imbe Group can’t compare with that of Maxwell Electronics.”
Everyone turned around in astonishment.
Eric thought to himself, “Who is this? How dare he poach Athena from me?”
But when he saw the person, he immediately became frightened.
“Mr. Maxwell! Why are you here?”
“This is my company. Can’t I come here?” Brad walked up to Athena while speaking. “Athena, you are not going to work in Imbe Group?”
“Yeah. I have submitted my resignation.” Athena nodded.
Brad looked very kind, reminding Athena of her grandfather.
“Great! I am short of a vice president in charge of the planning department. What do you say?”
Hearing this, everyone was shocked.
They couldn’t believe that Brad directly provided Athena with the position of vice president.
Eric was anxious. But he didn’t dare to compete with Brad blatantly.
So he could only look at Athena eagerly.
Athena smiled gently. “Mr. Maxwell, thank you. But I don’t plan to stay in Girard City anymore.”
“You don’t need to answer me in a hurry. Go back and think about it. Even if you are not in Girard City, the branches of Maxwell Electronics are all over the world. As long as you are willing to work for me, you can make it!” Brad was not in a hurry and handed Athena a business card.
It was a personal kind.
“Okay. Mr. Maxwell, I will think it over carefully.” Athena took the business card.
Brad then led his employees into the meeting room opposite.
“Miss Newton, are you leaving Girard City?” Esme asked.
Although Esme dissed Athena, Esme thought Athena was a piece of work after having contact with her for a short time and ignoring her relationship with Byron.
Esme liked to work with Athena.
She thought she would completely take Eric’s side if he really
recruited Athena into the team.
Athena made the decision last night.
She just realized that her understanding of Byron was too one-sided.
Just in case and for the sake of the baby, she couldn’t stay in Girard City any longer.
People from the sales department returned to the company triumphantly.
Eric wanted to celebrate it at once.
“Before you celebrate it, we still have another matter to resolve,” Athena said calmly.
After everyone heard this, their joy disappeared instantly.
They knew it was about the rat in their department…
“Miss Newton, since the contract has been signed, let’s celebrate it first!” Dylan said with a smile.
“I’m not a member of the sales department. It’s not appropriate for me to participate in your celebration. So, we’d better resolve this matter first. Then I can leave.” Athena was straightforward.
“Miss Newton, since the contract has been signed…” Esme also wanted to say something.
“I know what is in your mind. You are united and care for one another. You are a family. Of course, you don’t want a rat to appear in the family.” Athena glanced at the crowd, looking serious. “But you shouldn’t have let me take the blame. I don’t like to keep silent when I am blackened. So, I must find out this person and let him be punished severely.”
Eric’s face was a little gloomy.
Athena didn’t say a single harsh word, but she scolded everyone from the sales department.
In fact, when something went wrong with the data, he thought it could be an internal problem.
However, proble would be punished too.
Just at this time, someone suggested that since the data was given by Athena, maybe she did it.
Hearing this, Eric decided to let Athena take the blame.
“Miss Newton, you signed on the data sheet!” Dylan sneered, “Even Mr. Crawford said that you should be the one to take the responsibility!”
Athena glanced at him.
“Dylan, you think that you have acted in a particularly secretive way and didn’t leave any clues, right?”
“Athena Newton! Are you crazy? Don’t try to blacken me!”
Dylan immediately got irritated.
“The bank account 3467 opened in Swiss Bank belongs to your mother, right?” Athena asked word by word.
“Last month, on the 8th, the 9th, and the 11th, Mr. Turner of the Foster Company transferred six funds to this account. There are three million dollars in total.” Athena smiled.
“Coincidentally, on the 8th, I gave the datasheet to the project department.”
Foster Company was Imbe Group’s biggest competitor in the project with Maxwell Electronics this time.
