"I'm here." It was the first time for Colin to see Sophia like this. She became soft and acted spoiled.

Maybe Herring was right. Sophia was like a cup of old tea, which was tasted better as time passed by.

Someone was knocking on the lounge door. Colin loosened his hold on Sophia and opened it to find Gillian.

Gillian handed him the brown sugar water. "Mr. Li, it's ready."

"Thank you, Mr. Huo." Colin replied warmly.

Gillian was a bit surprised. "You're welcome, Mr. Li."

When Gillan first met Colin, he was a calm person. But for some reason, he changed recently. He was usually serious or irritable these days. He rarely saw him so warm and gentle.

As Gillian left, Colin took the warm sugar water and sat down next to Sophia. "Wait a minute. It's still a bit hot."

Sophia nodded gently. "Okay."

Sophia looked up at the man who held her in his arms. She never thought Colin could be so good to her.

He was being so kind, she thought she was dreaming. When she was in pain, warm hugs and emotional comfort were better than anything else.

"Why didn't you tell me earlier?" Colin was slightly unhappy about this.

Sophia was speechless for a long time. After taking a bold look at Colin, she spoke pitifully, "I'm not feeling well now. Are you really going to blame me?"

The saying was right. A spoiled woman enjoyed a better life!

Right! Colin kissed her on the forehead. "No, I'm not blaming you. Next time, tell me in advance if you're uncomfortable or if anything is wrong."

Sophia smiled. She rested her head on his chest, listening to his steady heartbeat. "Why should I tell you? You're not a doctor."

Colin paused. "At the very least, I can give you a leave and you don't have to endure the pain at work."

Fine! "Okay, I know."

"How did you get through it before?" She had been in Z Country for about three or four months. How did she get through it then?

"I filed for leave during the first two months. But this month, I've already asked for a 3-day leave to go to A Country. I decided not to ask for more leaves this month. I was thinking I could get through it."

But she couldn't get through it at all, or she wouldn't be rolling on the bed in pain.

"Who told you that you can't ask for more leaves after taking three days off?" There was no such a rule in SL Group.

Embarrassed, Sophia answered in a low voice, "The company will deduct my salary if I ask for more leaves." The longer she stayed off work, the more deductions she would get in her salary. She didn't want to take home a small salary on her next payday.

The system was designed to target employees who asked for leaves frequently despite not having a proper reason.

Colin was completely dumbstruck. "Are you keeping my check as an antique?"

"No. I'll use that money..." Talking to Colin seemed to distract Sophia from the pain. She felt much better now.

"I've told you before that you can ask me for more money anytime. I won't allow you to hurt yourself or trouble yourself when it comes to money." Colin chastised her in a serious tone, as if he was lecturing her.

"Yes, I get it. Teacher Li."

"Teacher Li?" What the hell?

"Hmm, it's nothing." Sophia quietly stuck out her tongue.

Colin caught her tiny action as he was reaching for the sugar water. His hand stopped in midair. Sophia was... so cute.

He brought the sugar water to her lips. "Try it. It might not be

hot anymore."

Adjusting herself in his arms, Sophia took the cup and drank the sugar water.

Yes, it wasn't hot anymore. The temperature was just right. Soon, Sophia drank it all.

Colin took the empty cup, and helped Sophia lay down comfortably on the bed. "I'll warm the soup for you."

It was convenient to have a microwave in the lounge.

Looking at Colin's back, Sophia smiled happily with her hands on stomach.

She put away her smile quickly when Colin turned around. She didn't want Colin to laugh at her.

Sophia leaned herself on the headboard as Colin fed her the soup. She couldn't finish the soup because she had the sugar water earlier. Colin finished the rest, so it wouldn't go to waste.

After having the warm soup, Sophia fell into a deep sleep in the lounge. Colin went to work after assuring that she was asleep.

Outside, countless calls from the media were waiting for him. Wade had stopped all the calls while Colin was with Sophia in the lounge.

Seeing Colin come out, Wade started reporting to him.

After the incident, Jamie had been dismissed and left SL Group. Everyone present had been penalized a month's bonus for making a riot.

However, someone had taken a photo of Colin and Sophia in the elevator. The photo was uploaded on the Internet and had gone viral through the media.

Now, a lot of people on the Internet were talking about the news that the CEO of the largest regional in SL Group had married an ordinary girl.

The photo of Colin embracing Sophia in the elevator had been included in the news.

Many people wondered if Colin was a playboy or if Leila was a mistress.

No matter who was responsible, Sophia was the victim. A large number of reporters were waiting to interview her.

Moreover, people have started digging more information about Sophia's family background and past.

Although Colin only announced it in the company, the whole world now knew about his marriage.

Colin didn't show any emotion after he was updated on the situation. Wade asked, "Mr. Li, do you want to hold a press conference?"

"No. There's no need to hold a press conference about my private affairs."

"Yes, Sir."

"Is there any rumor about Sophia on the Internet?" Colin knew the power of public opinion, and he feared it might hurt Sophia.

He usually kept a low profile, he didn't expect to catch so much attention from the media about his marriage.

"There are some rumors made up by netizens. But if the situation continues, they will soon find out that she had been in prison."

Colin frowned. "Send someone to the Public Security Bureau in A Country to destroy Sophia's records."

Remembering her pale and pitiful look, Colin didn't want Sophia to get hurt again.

He hadn't found the maid from the Lien family yet. The direct way to protect Sophia was to destroy her criminal records.

Even if people investigate her past, Colin would be able to find the maid. It would be easy to clear her name.

"Yes, Mr. Li."

Sophia slept until the evening. When she woke up, the lounge was quiet.

Feeling much better, she carefully sat up on the bed. After folding the blanket, she exited the lounge.

Colin wasn't outside. She thought he had already left. Anxious to go to the restroom, she left the CEO's office.

When Colin returned from the conference room, he found the lounge door was open and the woman sleeping inside had disappeared.
