Chapter 81 Can’t Stand It Any Longer
Gary entered the company and spotted a familiar figure standing not far away. He paused for a moment. Wasn’t that his wife? Didn’t she say that she would be accompanying an artist and working overtime for a movie shoot? Why would she be at the company now? He was about to call out to her, but he remembered Simone’s response and held back.
He followed from behind at a slow pace. After watching his wife enter the elevator, he approached and waited to see the elevator stop on the fifth floor.
Gary hesitated for a moment before deciding to head to the fifth floor as well. His office was located there. Was his wife here to see him? It didn’t make sense, though! He’d been picking his kid up after work these days, and she was aware of that.
He got off the fifth floor and checked his office, but no one was there. He then wandered around.
After approximately ten minutes, he arrived at the door of the freshly promoted director’s office. Not only were the lights on, but he could also hear voices coming from inside. He approached quietly.
The door was slightly ajar, allowing him to hear the conversation inside while standing at the door.
“You were absolutely dreadful today.”
“No way!” Gary’s face turned pale upon hearing his wife’s voice from inside.
Suppressing the urge to kick the door open, he took out his phone and started recording, continuing to listen.
A male voice spoke, which belonged to the new director.
“We shouldn’t be doing it at the office. Let’s find another place. I’ll show you what I’m really capable of. I’m much better than Gary, right?”
The woman’s voice sounded. “Of course, you’re far better than him! Dang it, when can I divorce him? Every day, I feel like puking whenever I see his face. Also, his son pesters me weekly to take him to the amusement park. It’s so annoying.
The man replied, “Just hold on for a little while more, darling. We’ve endured it for two years already, and a little more time won’t make a difference.”
“My patience is wearing thin, though.”
“As long as you obtain the information he has, we can finalize the divorce. By then, we’ll hire a woman and catch them cheating. Since he cheated first, he’ll be at fault. Not only will you have a reason to divorce, but you can also claim most of the assets. Gary has been a director for many years, and according to what you said, he occasionally takes on private jobs. He must have some family wealth.”
The woman said, “If it weren’t for helping you, who would care about his small fortune? However, he’s wasted two years of my youth, so he should compensate for it.”
The conversation took a turn. “I’ve helped you by making him commit two major mistakes, which led to his demotion from the position of director.

“You’re already the new director, so why do you still want those documents from him?” she asked. “They’re not easy to obtain, you know. I’ve tried to crack the password on his laptop several times, but he’s never told me the code.
“You don’t understand. He has been running the company for many years, and those documents are very important to him. There are still many resources that will determine whether I can advance further. Darling, whether you guys can divorce quickly depends on whether you can obtain those things sooner.
She suggested. “Perhaps I can do what I did the last two times and put sleeping pills in his drink. I’ll steal his computer. You guys can unlock it and secretly copy the documents, and I’ll put it back.”
“Well, that’s one way of doing it,” replied the man. Have a romantic dinner with him one day, give him some wine, then make him drink some water with sleeping pills. That way, he will sleep longer and won’t suspect anything, thinking it’s because he got drunk
“Alright, that’s settled, then.” The woman went along with the plan.
“Once everything is done, I will ask Mr. Gray to help you make your debut and make you famous,” he
“No broken promises! Based on what you’re saying, does Mr. Gray know about all this?”
“Of course. How am I supposed to bring Gary down and take his position otherwise? The plan is to get rid of all the lackeys belonging to the previous president. What’s more, Gary offended Mr. Gray shortly after he joined the company. If he doesn’t leave, who will? However, Gary has been quite stable, having worked with the company for many years. If he doesn’t make any mistakes, the president can’t easily replace him as director,” the man explained. “We just need to make him make a mistake. Once we obtain the documents, Mr. Gray can remove him and his team.
“I understand now. Two years ago, you asked me to get close to him, target his son and mother, and make him marry me. Is Mr. Gray aware of this, too?” she asked.
The man answered, “He knows. Mr. Gray discovered that Gary values his son’s and mother’s opinions the most. That’s why I had you target them and bring him down.”
“You guys really have the patience,” she commented..
“Of course, we are people who accomplish great things. Let’s go find someplace else.”
“Alright, I want to see how capable you are today!” said the woman.
Upon hearing this, Gary’s face turned as dark as it could get.
Instead of bursting into the room and confronting them, he took a deep breath, saved the recording. and quietly walked away.
If he were to rush in now and beat the other person up, it would only alert them.
He didn’t leave the company but returned to his office instead.
Without turning on the lights, he switched on the computer and copied all the useful information. While copying, his face was filled with anger and gloom.

He never expected that his young wife had been deliberately placed by his side under the instruction of the new director.
His wife had passed away in an accident a few years ago, leaving behind a son.
He never considered remarrying.
Meanwhile, this woman was transferred to be his assistant two years ago. She was young, beautiful, and especially considerate and caring toward him. Most importantly, she treated his mother and son very well, taking his child out to play every week. She even claimed to love him so much that she loved. everything about him
Gradually, he was moved by her, and with his mother and son also liking this woman, they decided to make it official. They got married after dating for a while.
Once, he overslept and missed a crucial meeting, which was the perfect opportunity to promote a top celebrity for the company. Consequently, he was demoted from his position as director.
He couldn’t comprehend why he had overslept. Logically, he shouldn’t have, considering he had never made such a basic mistake before,
However, he never anticipated that it was this woman who had played a trick on him.
What was even more astonishing was that Titus and the general manager were aware of it and even conspired with the new director to try to oust him.
Lately, this woman had been throwing frequent tantrums, causing turmoil at home.
He was deeply perplexed by her behavior, and it turned out that she wanted a divorce.
What was even more outrageous was that these two individuals planned to make him the one at fault for the divorce and take the majority of his assets.
At that moment, Gary felt nothing but coldness, anger, and a sense of manipulation.
Suddenly, he recalled a statement Simone had made earlier in the day.
If I were you, I would make them pay the price.”
At the time, he didn’t comprehend why she had said that. Now, not only did he understand, but he was also completely engrossed in it.
He couldn’t bear this anger.
Being manipulated like this, he also desired for them to face the consequences.
Simultaneously, he was astounded by Simone’s power. Had she already calculated all of this? After copying all the information from the computer, he deleted it.
He also ensured that it couldn’t be recovered, preventing anyone from accessing it in the future.
After sitting for a while, he finally stood up and left the company, returning to his car.

He didn’t leave immediately. Instead, he pondered for a while.
Then, he retrieved his phone and dialed Simone’s number, which he had just found on the computer.
