Chapter 32: Did a Workaholic Know How to Choose Clothes?
Because Benjamin was always busy with his work, he did not sleep much every day.
If he could manage to get a full five hours of sleep in a day, it would already exceed his budget. Most of the time, he would only sleep for 2 to 3 hours a day.
He was not just a night owl, but also an early bird, and completely occupied with his busy work life.
It’s no wonder that sometimes he didn’t even notice how off Martina’s emotions were. Normally, Benjamin would wake up around 6 a.m. and immediately get ready to dive into his busy work.
However, today, perhaps because he was going to bring Martina back, Benjamin woke up half an hour earlier than usual.
Benjamin’s time was precious, and almost every minute and second was carefully planned. Even the people in his work team have to strictly follow his schedule, including eating and sleeping at the same time.
Last night, Benjamin was busy working until late into around past 2 a.m. It was a hard- earned sleep for the team members who finally managed to rest. However, they hadn’t slept for long when Benjamin suddenly woke up.
This meant that those people needed to continue to be on standby in front of Benjamin,
responsible for organizing today’s series of tasks.
Everyone could only sigh and complain silently about their dissatisfaction. But when
they thought about the generous salary they were receiving, their complain gradually
The key point was that they dared not really complain to Benjamin. After all, provoking
his anger would lead to unpleasant consequences.
Simon was the only exception. As he gazed at his boss, who was becoming increasingly difficult to deal with, a mix of frustration and helplessness enveloped him.
Then he whispered to the assistants beside him, “Didn’t we already finish organizing and completing the work last night?”
“Why is the boss getting up so early again? He didn’t even leave any personal time for himself. It’s like he doesn’t care about his own health!”
The team members shook their heads, appearing quite helpless.
“I don’t know, it feels like the boss is an emotionless workaholic.”
“But while the boss can endure it, we can’t. If I continues to be like this, I might have to
take a month off and go to the hospital for a thorough check-up.”
Hearing all the complaints from the assistant team, Simon took a deep breath.
He had a sense of resignation. “Alright, you guys wait downstairs. I’ll go and find out
what’s going on.”
“I’ll find out what the boss is thinking. I can feel that something is strange today, and we don’t want to misinterpret the situation.”
Everyone gratefully nodded and wiped away tears. “Thank you!”
Simon, being very competent, took out the work report and arrived at the door of Benjamin’s bedroom.
He intended to check the boss’s mood while giving the work report.
However, he noticed that Benjamin was staring at the wardrobe, completely lost in thought, as if facing a formidable enemy. Even when dealing with contracts worth billions or
even tens of billions, Benjamin had never shown such an expression before!
Simon felt puzzled and began to have various questions in his mind.
“What’s going on? Could it be that the boss has another important task to discuss today, something I’m not aware of?”
“But even if that’s the case, based on the boss’s past behavior, he would at most wear a well-fitted suit, presenting himself in a spirited manner. So why is it different this time?”
Benjamin seemed to notice Simon’s arrival and abruptly shifted his gaze onto him. Then what he uttered surprised Simon completely.
“What outfit do you think she would like from the clothes in the wardrobe?”
Benjamin, a workaholic, unexpectedly taking the initiative to ask about these things! Simon finally grasped the situation. It turned out the boss was genuinely worried about the clothes. But who was this “she” the boss mentioned? Who could it be?
Just when Simon felt a bit puzzled, a sudden thought came in his mind.
Wait a second!
Since the day the boss and Miss Martinez met, they haven’t had any contact, but the boss’s mood seemed fine.
Obviously, they must have resolved certain matters, but there was only one thing that could impact the boss’s mood, and that was whether Miss Martinez would return or not. So, had she already agreed to come back?
Simon, being someone who had been by Benjamin’s side for a long time, did have some understanding of Benjamin. He took a deep breath and cautiously pointed to the clothes in the wardrobe, suggesting, “How about this one?”
To be honest, Benjamin’s clothes were not much different from one another. They might have slight style variations, but most of them are suits. Overall, they gave off a formal vibe that clearly indicated he was a workaholic.
Benjamin didn’t have any clothes suitable for staying at home or going on a date. He
looked at that outfit, and contrary to his expectations, his brows slightly furrowed.
“Is it too plain?” he asked.
As Benjamin knew, Martina used to like young and handsome guys, especially those with a sunny disposition. But now, his wardrobe didn’t have a single outfit that met her
This made Benjamin very frustrated, and his mood became bad once again. Luckily, he wasn’t angry with anyone but gave instructions to Simon.
“Pick out some seasonal clothes for me, find more trendy styles suitable for home and
This absolutely surprised everyone. Even Simon widened his eyes in surprise.
It was known to all that the boss was absolutely a workaholic, and he didn’t care about anything other than work.
So, for a workaholic like him to suddenly talk about selecting a batch of seasonal clothes and trendy styles was quite unexpected.
Simon had no idea how to describe his current feelings, and his mouth couldn’t close for quite some time. Thankfully, he was a professional and didn’t reveal his thoughts too
Simon used to think that Miss Martinez might be special and important to the boss, but now he was completely sure about it.
Everyone said Miss Martinez was as insignificant as an accessory to the boss, but now it was clear that it wasn’t at all.
Everyone had misunderstood the value Miss Martinez held for the boss. Whether in the past or now, only she could affect the boss’s mood, and only she could heal the boss’s
