Zoey’s words hit Iris like lighting. That was a strong possibility. Otherwise, how else would the boss be so clear about the happenings in the company? It didn’t seem possible for him to have heard all of those from someone else. The only explanation was that he had experienced everything firsthand as an employee of the company.
Who could it be?
For both ladies, Levi was the first person to be eliminated from their lists of possible candidates. They had not even considered Levi due to his status in the Jones family.
“Let me try finding out from Mr. Rhodes!”
Iris and Zoey visited Neil in his room together.
“Mr. Rhodes, has our boss arrived yet?” Iris asked expectantly while feeling slightly nervous.
“Yeah, he’s already here.” Kirin gave a positive reply.
“So, was it our boss who helped to settle the matter with the local tyrant earlier on?” Iris continued asking.
“That’s right, he did step in and help to extinguish that group of people.”
Kirin answered both questions honestly without concealing any facts.
When Kirin finished speaking, Iris and Zoey exchanged glances and said softly to each other, “Indeed, it has got nothing to do with Levi.”
“You said our boss is already here? Where is he staying at then? I’ve reserved the best room in the resort for him.” Iris asked expectantly.
Kirin shook his head and answered, “Yup, he’s here, or maybe it’s more accurate to say that he has been here all the while. I don’t know where he is staying at though!”
“What? He can’t really be one of the employees, right?” Iris gaped in astonishment.
“Yup, he is!” Neil confirmed her doubts.
Kirin’s reply was another huge blow to Iris. That was indeed the case. The mysterious boss of Morris Group was one of the employees whom she might have unknowingly interacted with on a daily basis.
That also meant that he was aware of her every single move.
It was exactly like what Levi had told her— At your best? As if he hasn’t seen you before.
Who could it be?
Iris started running through each male employee the company had in her mind.
However, given the massive scale of the company, it seemed to be an impossible task as there were many employees whom Iris had not yet met. There was no way she could easily determine which one of them was their boss.
“Will he be revealing himself tomorrow?” Iris wondered.
“That’s the plan.” Kirin answered clearly.
“Mr. Rhodes, is our boss good-looking?” Iris was filled with anticipation as she asked that.
“He’s better looking than me at least!” Kirin laughed.
Iris was getting increasingly excited and could not wait to meet the boss after hearing Kirin’s words. “Is he married? Or rather, is he currently attached?”
With a pensive smile on his face, the man replied, “He’s still single and not married yet!”
Well, he wasn’t lying. Levi and Zoey had already divorced, so technically-speaking, he was a single man.
Iris’ heart was already fluttering uncontrollably by then. He’s the man of my dreams! Boss, here I come!
The woman had made up her mind to pursue her boss and was already devising all sorts of strategies in her head.
Zoey was amused while she looked at her friend behaving like a teenage girl in love. She had never seen Iris so enchanted and being so serious over a man.
After they left Kirin’s room, Zoey teased, “You should get some rest. I’m worried that you would be too excited to sleep tonight.”
