Ed and Wendy were dumbfounded once again. “W-What did you say? What sort of worker’s dorm is 300 square meters in size? A-Am I supposed to stay in the dorm all by myself?” Ed exclaimed in surprise. He had expected the dorm to be a single bedroom or even a double bunk bed sharing room.
He didn’t mind either of these—he had slept on nothing more than a thin mattress back when he worked at the construction site and wasn’t picky with where he slept.
However, based on what Max had just said, the dorm didn’t sound like the type of room that he had been expecting. Max grinned as he said, “You’ll be the CEO of the whole company—of course you can’t just stay at any usual worker’s dormitory. Master Tiger has a few bungalows at The Grand Pavilion, and he picked this one specially for you to stay in for the time being.
In other words, Master Tiger is suggesting you to get your parents to move in as well. After all, they are getting old and their health is deteriorating, but there isn’t anyone available to take good care of them if they continue staying in the village.”
Ed was still in shock. “I-Is this really a worker’s dorm? Why is it a bungalow?”
With a cackle, Max said, “It really is a dorm. This is the same unit that Master Tiger had arranged for President Davis when he worked in the company.
Your daily living expenses are claimable from the company’s finance department; these go under regular expenses that the CEO will personally approve of. Since there aren’t many higher ups in Wellness Herbary, it isn’t that much of a surprise for you to be staying here. The company is a billion-dollar business, after all!”
With his hand scratching his own head, Ed simply flashed him a look of confusion as he didn’t know what else to do.
I was staying in a rundown, rented place this morning. Now, I’m going to move into a grand bungalow? They say that life is a roller-coaster, but I hadn’t expected it to go this fast!
Shortly after, Max brought his men to help with the shift from Ed’s old place to the bungalow at The Grand Pavilion. Meanwhile, Dominic personally sent them from the village back to their new place, claiming that he wanted to familiarize himself with the roads while also taking a short walk around.
This man was witty—he actually wanted to improve his relationship with Ed because he knew that the man was about to be extremely successful. He thought that his relationship with Ed might give himself greater opportunities.
Dominic’s house was a little villa located in the village itself; its glamorous design and unique structure made it the one place that he was most proud of. However, he nearly had a mental breakdown after he followed Ed and Wendy to their new bungalow at The Grand Pavilion. The villa that he had been so proud of was nothing compared to Ed’s bungalow.
The newly-weds sat in the living room, more cautious than ever as they looked around at the house they had never once dreamt of living in.
After everyone left, Ed’s family sat together as they all watched each other dazedly. They found it hard to even imagine the whole situation to be true. “Ed, is this… really your worker’s dorm? What sort of dorm is this? T-This is… this is a palace!” Ed’s mother spoke in a trembling voice.
He was just as shocked as he quietly replied, “Mom, Matthew and Julian were the ones who arranged all of this; I don’t know what’s going on either.”
She heaved a thankful sigh as she said, “You’ve really found yourself two great friends, Ed. You have to thank them in the future!”
“Don’t worry, Mom! I… I can drop everything else, but I’ll most definitely put all my heart into this job,” Ed declared as he nodded furiously.
“That’s good, that’s good.” Both his parents nodded along with him.
Right then, Max came back into the house. With an apologetic look on his face, he gave them a tiny smile as he said, “Excuse me, Ed. There’s something I forgot to tell you about just now. As Julian was leaving just now, he ordered me to let you know that you might have to cancel your honeymoon for now.
There are just too many things going on at the company recently, and we need more manpower. He wants you to immediately take over the upcoming tasks; that way, you can familiarize yourself with the job while helping him out at the same time. I think that you might have to start working from tomorrow onward.”
