Everybody knew who their boss was speaking to without having to guess.
Apart from Xyla, their boss would definitely not show such a pleasant facial expression to anyone else. In fact, Stanley would never speak this nicely in front of anyone else.
“Why are you suddenly eating at the staff’s cafeteria?” Xyla asked.
“Hmm. I felt like eating the tomato scrambled eggs here,” Stanley said truthfully.
“In that case… Enjoy your meal! I’m still spending time with the players. Talk to you back at home,” Xyla said.
“Okay. I‘ll pick you up after work tonight,” Stanley said.
After hanging up, Xyla turned around and was about to walk into the room when she heard a man’s voice from behind.
“Hey… Aren’t you Xyla Quest?”
The unfamiliar voice made Xyla stop moving, and she immediately turned around to look at the man.
He was a plump, middle-aged man who wore Armani from head to toes.
Xyla didn’t recognize him. “Do I know you?”
The man walked up to her and extended a hand to her. “My name is Hugo Clive. I own Team RS.”
Team RS was also one of the teams in the League of Legend competition. This team was only slightly weaker than Team EW. From what Xyla could recall, Team RS’s owner once personally contacted her on League of Legend and invited her to become his team’s lead ADC player. However, Xyla had rejected him without even considering the offer.
Xyla was told that this team’s owner came from an influential family. She happened to be from a similar background too.
With a polite smile, Xyla held his hand. “Nice to meet you…” She said.
“Now that the e-Sports industry is growing rapidly, everyone wants a piece of the pie. Even those who don’t know much about the industry want in… ” The man said with a smile.
Although he was smiling, Xyla could sense the sarcasm in his voice.
She felt certain that he thought of her as someone who knew nothing about the industry. His arrogant attitude made her want to throw up.
“But anyone who becomes part of this industry naturally has a passion for competitive gaming. Since there is passion involved, that person surely knows something about the industry,” Xyla replied with a smile. She kept calm and composed.
“But I don’t see you as the type of person who knows much about e-Sports, Miss Xyla. These days, very few women understand e-Sports. There are also very few who truly love e-Sports. After all, most women don’t even understand how to play League of Legend,” Hugo added.
Xyla felt extremely offended by what he said.
Why was he such a sexist? These things didn’t sound like someone from his background should say.
Xyla kept a smile on her face. “You must have misunderstood.”
“Oh? From what I’m hearing, does that mean you’re very good in this game?” Hugo asked.
“Not too shabby,” Xyla said.
Hugo couldn’t resist laughing out loud. “Stop kidding. I’ve never met any woman who looked as beautiful as you and still played games well.”
Xyla found it unbearable that he was looking down at her.
There was an undertone that this man thought of Xyla as a good-looking woman who could only be involved in certain businesses, but absolutely not gaming.
Right then, a young man walked out of the room. He went directly over to Hugo. “Mr. Clive, what are you doing?”
Xyla recognized this man as a very popular streamer, but she had forgotten his name.
“I’m chatting with Xyla. She insisted that she’s good at playing League of Legend… I find it a little hard to believe,” Hugo said.
