Chapter 911 Try My Best
Colby’s face was full of concern when he answered, “Nothing much. It’s just that I thought you would be in a bad mood, considering what had happened.”
Roxanne froze for a few seconds before flashing a helpless smile. I trusted all my colleagues in the research institute, but I ended up getting stabbed in the back. Anyone would be as moody as me if they were in my shoes.
“Jason is an old-timer in the research institute. I also didn’t expect him to do something so foolish.”
Colby followed her into the office and uttered apologetically, “If I had known, I would’ve kept an eye on him yesterday.”
Roxanne sat on her chair dejectedly and said, “It has nothing to do with you. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn’t have expected him to do something like that either.”
At that moment, all she wanted to know was the identity of the person who sent Jason the email.
As Colby was taking a seat opposite her, he was observing her expression silently. “I wonder what the mastermind’s motive is. Coincidentally, the storage room that Jason burned down stored Herbscape Group’s medicinal herbs.”
Roxanne’s heart skipped a beat when she heard those words because she suddenly realized something.
“It’s so weird. Who else would know about Jason’s son apart from the people in the research institute? I can’t believe the mastermind ended up using that against Jason,” Colby continued.
He was hinting at the fact that someone had gone to great lengths to destroy Herbscape Group’s batch of medicinal herbs.
Upon saying that, Colby stared intently at Roxanne’s face to see if he could glean some information out of her expression.
Although Roxanne’s heart was racing, she acted calm and composed. “I’ve already told someone to investigate the email address, so I should hear back from that person soon. Let’s talk about it afterward.”
Colby got nothing out of her expression, so he ended up frowning in annoyance.
Seeing that, Roxanne forced a smile and said, “Thank you for your concern, Dr. Galloway. I’m exhausted. I’ll need you to coordinate the research institute today.”
Colby nodded nonchalantly. “Okay.”
Roxanne thought Colby would leave her office after that, but he didn’t seem like he was leaving anytime soon.
Baffled, she asked, “Is something else the matter?”
Colby seemed troubled when he asked, “Now that Herbscape Group’s medicinal herbs are gone, how do you plan on salvaging the situation?”
Roxanne felt a headache coming when he mentioned those medicinal herbs. That’s one of the reasons why I’m so angry. That batch of medicinal herbs is very important for the project. Since it’s very rare in Chanaea, we had to take the risk and retrieve the medicinal herbs before Herbscape Group got sealed up. Yet, everything has turned to ashes. As for what to do next, I’ll have to discuss it with Jack. Obviously, the research institute has to be responsible for losing the medicinal herbs in the fire. It seems like I owe Jack an apology.
Just when her temple was throbbing, Colby’s voice rang out once again.
“If you need help, I think I can figure something out to soften the blow.”
Roxanne suddenly came back to her senses when she heard that. “Do you know how to find those medicinal herbs?”
Colby nodded slightly. “I’ll try my best.”
At that, Roxanne gave him a doubtful glance. “That batch of medicinal herbs is rare because we could barely find it on Chanaea’s supply channels. If it’s too tough of a task for you, just forget about it.”
Colby’s gaze dimmed when he saw Roxanne doubting his capability. “I’ve been in Horington for so many years, so I have some connections. Don’t worry about it.”
