With unmistakable anxiety in his voice, Herring asked, " "Dude, are you sure you haven't changed your mind? You really want me to seduce your wife?"

"Yeah, I do!" Colin, though, was already filled with a sense of regret.

"Come on… I mean. Your wife is really fun! She's like a fine cup of tea, tasty, but you can always find a greater hidden depth of flavor." Colin had already hung up the phone.

Herring found himself speaking to the dial tone.

Herring looked at the woman in front of him, and shrugged, "Your brother is so heartless."

Shelly Li remained silent for a long time before finally speaking, "He's still better than a man who falls for every woman he meets.."

"......"

Sophia had clearly overheard the conversation between Colin and Herring. So Colin had sent Herring to seduce her!

Wow. There really was nothing Colin wouldn't do to achieve his goals. He would leave no stone unturned in his quest to divorce her.

Colin restrained Sophia from behind. Sophia shoved back angrily. "Get your hands off me!"

"Did you…overhear?" The room was dead silent. Of course she was able to hear their conversation.

"Shut up and go to sleep! And get the hell out of my house by the morning!" Sophia closed her eyes. She was fuming but tried her best to ignore him.

But Sophia felt a pain gradually rising in her chest. How could she feel heartbroken for such a man? She thought to herself. How?

"We've already moved on from that.." Colin turned to her, put his head up on his right arm and tried to explain.

He was met with silence.

"Sophia, I mean it! I can make Herring leave tomorrow!"

Colin thought that chasing Herring away might very well make him feel better, too.

"There's no need to send him away. I like him. If you send him away, I'd be very unhappy!"

"......" This time Colin remained silent.

His eyes widened with anger in the dark. His Sophia just told him, that she liked Herring! Goddamn it!

Colin pulled back his arm and rolled over on top of her.

"You are no allowed to like Herring! I forbid you!"

"Your opinion means nothing to me. I've already fallen for him. You were a good match maker after all." Sophia opened her eyes. Their eyes met in the dark room. His seemed to glow with anger.

He was angry? Why? This was his plan. After all, he was the one who had put Herring and her together.

Colin lowered his head to kiss her. But Sophia covered her mouth with her hands, and mumbled, "Colin, I'm in love with another man! Soon, you'll get the divorce you've wanted for so long."

......

After a long time, Colin collapsed on the bed, and remained silent for a long while.

Sophia soon fell asleep with random thoughts bouncing around in her head. Colin listened to the rhythm of her breath and stared at the ceiling. His mind was racing with conflicting emotions.

Day broke.

When Sophia woke up, she was alone on the bed.

However, the breakfast on the kitchen table reminded her that Colin had stayed over the last night.

Was his leaving so abruptly a sign? Maybe it signaled the end of their relationship.

Last night.... Sophia decided to let it go for the time being.

The food on the table included beautifully packaged soup packets, porridge, and a few dishes. It would be a shame if she didn't eat them up. Sophia ate everything. Feeling bloated, she massaged her stomach.

Herring was already at the office when Sophia arrived. He was sitting at his desk killing the playing a game on his cell phone. When he saw Sophia, a crooked smile appeared on his face. "Sophia, Sophia, how was your evening? Any improvement in your relationship?"

Sophia was flustered at seeing a grown man act so immature. "Stop acting like a school girl, are you sure you're both in your 30's?"

"Actually, no. He's 30. But I'm only 29!" Herring flamboyantly ran his fingers through his hair.

Sophia had nothing to say. She

walked to her desk, sat down, and began sorting through a pile of document. "Thanks for calling last night."

Herring was shocked. Had his call really interrupted.. their.. bedroom time?

The time frame didn't make sense though. That would mean they had started as soon as he walked out the door. Merely 10 minutes after he left! No way…

"Sophia, how about we go have some fun? You can take the day off." Herring gingerly pulled a document out of her hand.

"What kind of fun? I have to have Mr. Li's permission first. How about you go and ask him?"

"No problem! Just a moment!"

Herring, who was already kicked out of Colin's office earlier this day, pushed open the door of the CEO's office again.

"Colin, I need to borrow your secretary for the day! I'll bring her back in one piece, OK?"

Herring spoke quickly and jetted out of the room as soon as he finished. Colin had no time to respond.

"Wait!" Colin called Herring back.

"What's going on?" Herring turned his head around in wonder.

"Miss Lo is busy today. I'll send someone else to entertain you." Colin picked up his telephone, and dialed a number.

Herring quickly hung up the call. "Don't bother. I only want to go out with Sophie. I don't want any of the other secretaries."

Herring thought about the other secretaries. One was engaged, two marred and one, in an attempt to seduce him, had go overboard with plastic surgery. Sophia was the only one he could really have any fun with.

"You don't like the others? Fine." Colin pulled out his cell phone and opened his list of contact. "I have no choice but to tell Shelly then. Tell her about your little evening at the Dark Night.."

Colin was unhappy with Herring. If he was going down, so was Herring.

Herring gasped. "Wow, you sure are a good friend, " he said sarcastically. Okay fine, I'll leave Sophia alone. I'll take Shelly out."

Herring was really close to Shelly Li, and always called her Shelly instead of Ms. Li.

"Oh, and by the way, Shelly has been spending a lot of time with my Aunt's male models. If you don't want her to end up with another man, you'd better be careful. You'll only have yourself to blame." Colin said this while calmly setting his phone down.

Herring was famous, country-wide for being a ladies man. All across Country A, he was known as a bit of a Casanova.

Herring was not bothered by what Colin said. "Why would I give up the forest for a try?"

Herring thought that Shelly had been playing hard to get. He had pursued her for a long time with no luck. She had never though him 'qualified' to be her boyfriend.

"I'm not telling you to give up the forest.. You're entitled to as many trees as you want. Just remember, you're my best friend but she's my sister. If you ever hurt her, I would never forgive you." Colin, obviously still angry about the previous evening, was putting on a show of tough-guy aggression.

Herring looked on in disbelief. Did Colin really just say what he though he said? He would end their friendship if he broke Shelly's heart. Fine. "I won't mess with Shelly anymore. Satisfied?"

After all, Herring, not even 30, still had many good years of foraging left. Maybe he would give up the game at 40, but not yet!

"Good. I hope you mean that." Colin took out his phone again.

"I mean it, " Herring said. "Wait, what are you doing on your phone now?" Herring felt defeated, couldn't they just talk?

"I just wanted to let Shelly know. Since you're moving on, she might as well go out with that model from the other day. Apparently he took a knife for her while protecting her. Pretty crazy, huh? Such a good man. I wouldn't want her to miss the chance.."

Right as Colin began to dialed the number, Herring stopped him again.

"Don't call her.."

"Why not?" Colin frowned at Herring. He despised him. So obviously in love with his sister, but to much of a coward to admit it.
