The three men who walked out of the meeting room shifted their gazes over to me. With a slight raise of his brows and purse of his thin lips, Jared muttered a few words to Joseph, causing the latter to glance at me before taking his leave.
Ashton’s gaze darkened as he stared at me. I had a feeling that he was about to unleash his wrath on me.
I hurriedly stood up upon thinking about Caleb. “I’m more than willing to compensate for all the losses incurred for the past two days, Mr. Fuller.”
Ashton frowned while remaining silent. Instead, it was Joe who began to cause a stir. “You’re incredible, Ms. Stovall. This is a project worth a few billion, and you’ve managed to incur your own husband a loss of over ten million in just two days! You’re being far too generous!”
His words were dripping with sarcasm.
Seeing Ashton remain silent with a grim look on his face, I rolled my eyes at Joe. “You sure are a nosy one, Mr. Quinn.”
Pfft! Jared stifled his laughter. With his hands in his pockets, he looked on with innocent eyes as though completely uninvolved.
Joe cast him a glare before turning to me, looking dour. “What makes you think you can talk to me like that, Scarlett Stovall?”
I really had no intention of wasting my breath talking to Joe. The guy never had anything nice to say to me because he thought I was always getting in between Ashton and Rebecca.
