(Helping Roger out(2)

"Why do you want to help Roger Gu?" Francis asked.     

"He helped me before,"  Violet answered." And I want to return the favor."    

"What did he do to help you?" Francis kept asking, because he wanted to know everything about her, her life, her heart, and so on.   

  "He was once hit by a car to save me. Besides, he, as my boss, also helped me a lot when I worked for him, so I want to help him in return." Violet unveiled everything in her heart to Francis. 

Although it could be risky, she wanted to remain honest before him.     

"It seems that he's special to you,"  Francis said, with a smile on his face. He had already done his research on the GR Group on Carol and on Roger. The GR Group remained as a medium-sized company, with the biggest deal of the year merely a small part of the JS Group, one of four biggest corporations in the city. Carol's firm and frank manner of doing business in addition to her admirable business ingenuity made her one of the top female business leaders.

 If not for Selina, she could have been the queen of the city. As for Roger, he was popular. Everyone, including his peers, his elders as well as other business people, thought highly of him. This was mainly owing to his being well-educated and his being earnest and responsible. Besides, being raised under the care of Carol, he didn't grow up to be a playboy. Instead, he was serious in his relationships, neither closely relating with popular stars, nor hanging around red light districts. Therefore, Roger was a good candidate to be a reliable friend. However, Francis didn't regard him as possible business partner. Roger might be too nice to be successful. He wasn't cruel and ambitious enough. These were traits that contribute to achievements in business.   

Violet didn't know how to respond to Francis, so she just changed the topic back to what she originally intended. "Mr. An, will you help the GR Group?"    

Gazing at Violet, Francis didn't answer her question, although he was thinking of the possibility.     

"Today's news wasn't all true. Tina is not that kind of woman as the news portrayed. She's a good girl, better than what the news reported. What's more, shopping malls of the GR Group run well. People like the GR Group and are loyal to it." Violet put in a good word for the company in spite of conflicts between her and Tina. Violet would still risk everything to help Roger and the GR Group. When Violet recalled that moment when Roger got injured in order to save her, she decided that she would take any humiliation if that meant helping him.    

 "Violet, I heard of your husband's family background. Although his family is more renowned in the medical community, their influence is beyond that, isn't it? He might also be of help to Roger Gu. By the way,"  Francis paused then continued. 

"Your family is also powerful. Isn't Selina Lu one of your relatives? Do you know that she and Carol are in bad terms? What will she do? How will she react if she found out that you are helping Carol's family?"  

"My aunt Selina deserves better than your words! Please don't speak of my family like that." Irritated by what Francis said, Violet raised her voice at him.    

 Astounded by her sudden change of behavior, Francis had no idea what to do next. He just stood there, in front of Violet, without a word.     

There was nothing but silence in the office for a while as Violet calmed herself down.    

 "I'm sorry." Violet finally said.    

 Francis remained silent. He already knew about Violet for he had looked her up and conducted some investigations. He was still shocked by how protective she was when it came to family. What he had learned, was that Violet was affectionate like Cinderella among the rich. That proved true today. She was indeed less indifferent, unlike other girls from upper-class families.     

"If you are unwilling to help, then I'm sorry that I bothered you. I'll leave now. Thank you for your time,"  Violet said and turned to leave.   

Francis immediately grabbed her hand before she walked out. He then pulled her closer until she stood in front of him, face to face. Looking at Violet, Francis said,"I will help Roger Gu, but under one condition."   

 Violet was both surprised and overjoyed when she heard what Francis just said.     "What...what do you want?" Violet asked. To get his help, she was happy to comply to his requirement, as long as it was within her means.    

 "Stay with me." Francis said with determination. He gazed at Violet. She could read from his eyes that he wasn't joking and he really wanted Violet to be by his side.     

Violet's eyes popped in astonishment. What...what did he just say?    

 It took a while for Violet to process what Francis just said. He just made an impossible requirement! She stammered,"I...I'm married."  

"I know. I know your husband is Greg." Francis was grinning. "What I meant about staying with me is that we become close friends. Would you like to be a good friend of mine?"    

Violet, without any similar experience in her entire life, was shocked that this was exactly what Francis wanted.    

 "Friends?" Violet repeated the word.    

 "Yeah, we are just acquaintances now. You don't even take me as a friend, right? Now I do you a favor and then we become friends. That's all I want. By the way, it's not a deal. I'll do it all from my heart." Francis seemed quite genuine.    

 Violet finally believed him and was relieved. She said,"Oh okay, now I get it."    "Great! So how do we go from here? Are we friends now?" Francis asked.   

  "Well, to be honest, I don't know you at all and I have no idea if you are good or bad." Violet revealed her worries. All her friends were reliable. Would Francis be a reliable friend? She was not sure about that.   

"What? So now you think I'm a bad guy?" Francis asked, surprised. It never came to his mind that others would think of him as bad!
