She decided to forget what Colin had done since she was about to leave the villa.

Sophia searched for house renting information online during her afternoon tea break and made an appointment with a potential landlord.

Her requirements for the flat were simple; clean, tidy, and convenient.

The first flat she saw fit those requirements. She paid the security deposit on the spot, and told the landlord she would move in soon.

It was midnight when Colin returned from the Red Hall.

He was tipsy. Subconsciously, he went to Sophia's room. The door was open.

He turned on the light. Everything in the room was in perfect condition. Just as it had been before Sophia moved in.

Colin had a bad feeling and hurried to the cloakroom. It was empty.

The corners of his mouth raised into a sly smile. He now saw that she too agreed about getting a divorce.

He didn't know what he was thinking, but after a while, he dialed Sophia's number.

Sophia hadn't gone to bed yet. She had just moved in, and was cleaning the house. She was about to finish mopping the floor when the phone rang.

"Yes, Mr. Li?" She answered his call.

"Where are you?" Colin asked.

"I'm in my home" answered Sophia.

"Your home? You mean Payne and yours?" He could not help taunting her.

Sophia's face fell cold, "Thanks for calling, Mr. Li."

Colin didn't expect that. He shouted. "Sophia Lo! If you dare hang up the phone, I..." Then he heard the beeping signal.

Colin threw his phone onto his bed. He untied his shirt and tie impatiently, and threw them away.

He didn't know what was bothering him, but something was.

At SL group, Sophia sat at her spot, but felt very uncomfortable. Opposite her sat a gorgeous man, staring at her all the time. She was having a hard time concentrating because she didn't have any restraint. None at all......

"Well, handsome Mr. Huo, how about I take you out, and show you around?" Said Sophia. She would comply with Colin's instructions to entertain this dude well!

Herring gently shook his head with a sweet smile, and told Sophia, "No, thank you, I enjoy watching you do your job."

"I'm afraid I'll get another scolding from Mr. Li if I didn't entertain you well" said Sophia.

"No, he won't. He's dating some beautiful lady now. He doesn't have time to come to the company." Herring's golden hair shone when he smiled.

There must be something wrong with Colin for wanting to push such a cute woman away.

He was dating some beautiful lady? Sophia was shocked. She couldn't recall a date on Colin's schedule.

Perhaps it was private?

"So-phie!"

Herring said her name. Sophia felt goosebumps spread over her arms, and tore herself away from her thoughts.

She smiled at him, "Mr. Huo, you are making it hard for others to work here. I'll take you out....well... I'll take you out to eat. I know a dessert shop nearby that's superb!"

Sophia always liked desserts such as mango pancake, durian pie, tiramisu, and so on.

Herring glanced around the secretarial room, and sure enough, all the other female secretaries looked at him from time to time.

One of the secretaries even gave him a bold wink when their eyes met!

Herring whistled at Jamie, "Hey, beauty, am I handsome?"

Jamie blushed, and nodded. She lowered her head to continue her work with pretended shyness.

That guy was Herring Huo! He was the second son of the Huo clan of Country A, and one of Colin's best buddies

!

But Sophia could only sense narcissism in his question. The tip of her mouth slightly twitched. "Are you coming or not?"

Asked Sophia for the last time. If Herring was determined not to go out with her, she could also settle down to work.

Herring nodded quickly, "Let's, let's."

Sophia put her work aside, and led Herring out of the office.

At the entrance of the company, A black Porsche stopped in front of the gate. Wade got out of the car, and opened the door for the man sitting on the rear seat. Herring saw him, and quickly put an arm around Sophia's shoulder.

Sophia was shocked, and immediately tried moving away from him, but Herring just held her closer.

Colin coldly watched their intimacy, "Why, is Mr. Huo still at the company? Miss Lo is that how you entertain my best friend?"

"No, no, no..... Colin, it's not Sophie's fault. She was working and I didn't want to disturb her." Herring quickly explained for Sophia before she could speak.

Sophie? A touch of displeasure appeared in Colin's eyes.

"Remove your hand!" Colin stared at Herring.

"Hmmm?" Herring pretended he didn't understand.

Colin ignored him, and turned to Sophia, "Where's your self respect?"

Sophia was speechless, "......"

Herring's eyes shone. He let go of Sophia, and put a hand on Colin's shoulder, whispering in his ear, "Dude, how about you give her to me? You don't have to pretend anymore, just give her to me. How about it?"

Whenever Sophia saw two handsome men whispering or being too close together, she imagined them to be gay.

She heard Colin say, "If you two really love each other, I can step aside!"

Herring patted Colin's shoulder happily, "Dude! I knew you were a good friend!"

Although Herring was happy, Sophia was upset. Her heart twitched in pain.

"Mr. Li is so generous. Mr. Huo, how about we also do something to repay his kindness?"

Colin's angry look was fixed on her face as he spoke to Herring, "By the way, Herring, don't forget what you promised."

After saying that, he walked into the company without looking back.

Sophia couldn't help but look at Colin. He looked so tall and noble, shining with a dazzling light.

"That's enough. He's gone."

Herring didn't miss any subtle emotion change on her face. He thought to himself that if he missed this opportunity, he would never have another chance to win her heart.

Sophia drew back her gaze, and led Herring to the dessert shop.

Herring was a good talker, and even better at making girls happy.

Sophia was in a low mood at the beginning, but soon after, she forgot her unhappiness, and laughed and talked with him.

When they returned to the company, it was time to leave work. Herring went directly to the CEO's office, and Sophia headed to the secretary's office to complete her work.

"Yo, our little secretary is back. How is it going? How was Mr. Huo in bed?" Sophia's good mood was gone by Jamie's open insult.

After Jamie spoke, the other secretaries also looked at Sophia curiously.

Sophia walked to Jamie's office desk. She smacked the table with her hand. The sound and subtle threat made Jamie shrink.

Angry and ashamed, Jamie stood up and confronted her, "What the hell are you doing?"

"Miss Chiao, this is merely a warning. If you speak like that again, ruining my reputation, my hand will be on your beautiful face instead of this desk." As Sophia spoke, she patted Jamie's powdered cheek gently.
