“She must have had her personal reasons.”

“Is it true that a girl you appointed rose five ranks in two years, and is known to be abusive and arrogant with other team members?”

“She has no interactions with the said person.”

“But there are whispers about your relationship with the new joinee, who wields considerable power in the set-up now.”

“It is not true.”
