"Yes, of course, I'll play. Let's begin then..." Herring casually gave out a Bamboo One.

As soon as Sophia saw the image of a bird, she shifted her gaze at Hugh, who she thought was behind her. It was an instinct rather than a need. But Hugh had gone outside already.

She had to sound out Herring, "I have three birds here, could I... Claim a tile for a quadruplet?"

When he heard this, Herring exclaimed out loud, "Oh, little Sophia. How could you do this to me?"

As per the rule, he would lose money if Sophia did that.

Sophia slightly grinned, "Are you blaming me for your bad luck?" Then Sophia got a new card from the other side as June advised her to do. But it seemed useless. So she just gave the card out.

Looking at the Bamboo Three given out by Sophia, Herring glanced at Colin, who appeared very calm. "Don't you want it?"

"No!"

...

While Hugh was having a conversation on the phone outside for half an hour, Sophia was playing inside the whole time. People say that newbies usually had better luck. Tonight, it was true. Sophia won a lot, nearly winning every round.

So she also became addicted to it...

Sophia was still immersed in the thrill and excitement of playing Mahjong when Patrick and June had to leave the table.

In the course of playing, she had eaten all the peeled macadamia fruits beside her. The waiter served two more dishes of dried fruits. Sophia kept eating until her stomach was stuffed with them.

At around ten o'clock in the evening, everyone left the No. 8 Cruise Ship.

Sophia tightened her coat when they got out. She asked Hugh, "Shall I send you back to your home?"

She sensed that Hugh would be unable to drive since he drank.

Hugh did not refuse and directly sat in the seat beside the driver in Sophia's car. Then, Sophia suddenly remembered one thing, "Wait for a moment!"

She rushed to Colin's car and called out to him, "Mr. Li!"

Colin turned around and looked at her rather indifferently.

Sophia took something out from her pocket, "Mr. Li, I want to give this back to you. The password is..."

The man got into the car and drove away without looking back or saying a single word.

The more cold-hearted Colin appeared to be, the more necessary Sophia felt it was to give the 50 million back to him.

The reason why he didn't accept it might be that he didn't care about it at all.

She drove Hugh back to his apartment. Hugh softly whispered to her, "Sophia."

"Why?"

The man looked at her with such affection. "Colin will get married at the end of next month. He will have a family of his own soon. Do you know that?"

This was what she tried hard to avoid. No matter how she convinced herself not to care, her emotions would always get the best of her. She could feel her breathing tighten a bit, "I know."

"Then marry me after he gets married!"

... Did Hugh just propose to her? It made Sophia utterly speechless. What would she do? How would she react?

Hugh didn't let her speechless reaction affect him. He smiled reassuringly, "You don't have to answer me right now. Just think of it when you are back. No pressure at all."

She nodded half-mindedly, "OK. I will."

"Drive carefully on your way back. Call me as soon as you get home. I need to know that you're safe."

"OK! Thank you, Hugh." Sophia's mind was a bit blank now and she could only say OK. How could her intelligent and creative mind fail her at times like this?

Watching Sophia's white car disappear at the end of the road, Hugh went inside after pondering what he just did for a while.

When Sophia got home, she immediately got into bed without taking a shower. Staring at the ceiling, she thought about what just happened in her life.

Hugh just proposed to her. And, Colin had known that she was innocent after all. Her life was becoming all the more complicated...

The next day when Sophia went to the company, she bumped into Jonas on the first floor.

Jonas called out to her, "Designer Lo, please come to my office right after the morning meeting. I want to discuss a design blueprint with you!"

"... OK, Mr. Pei. I'll be there." Sophia answered without any hint of expression on her face.

After the morning meeting, Sophia thought cautiously why Jonas invited her to his office.

To discuss a design blueprint? She had an instinct that it was just an excuse.

Sophia knocked on the door of the president's office. She heard Jonas' voice from inside, "Come in!"

She pushed the door open, "Mr. Pei."

"Close the door!" Jonas put down his pen and looked at her.

Sophia immediately closed the door and tried to appear calm. She can't bear to be alone in the same room with her enemy.

"I need you to leave the Pei Group." Jonas went to the point directly. He didn't have to beat around the bush with her.

Sophia slightly sneered. "Why would I do that?"

Jonas cast a cold look at her, "Don't you think I have no idea what you have done in the company?! I advise you to get out while you still can!"

Sophia felt confused, "Mr. Pei, what do you mean?"

"What did I mean? Sophia Lo, don't think that I don't know why you are working here! Oh, I know your very purpose of staying in this group. You are here to find some evidence." The reason why Sophia came to the Pei Group was not simply just to work and earn money.

Sophia asked him back, "What evidence, then? Mr. Pei, what evidence do you think I want to find? I'm confused with all these."

"Don't pretend to be stupid. Even if you know it was me, what can you do? Without evidence, you can't do anything against me!" The triumphant look on Jonas' face made Sophia cringe inside.

"Then let's see if you can kick me out of the Pei Group! I want to see you try." To be frank, Sophia was not trying to find any criminal evidence that Jonas might have carelessly leave out when she came to the Pei Group.

That was because she knew she was powerless and until she got promoted to the senior management position, she could not do anything.

"Sophia Lo, I am the president! If I want to kick you out. You will leave right away!" Jonas became very furious. His cold, fiery eyes were intimidating.

Sophia didn't care much about his anger, "OK, please do what you want if you aren't afraid of public criticism!"

Sophia was right. It was the Internet era. If Jonas fired Sophia for no reason at all, he was actually putting his company in great risk.

"Then resign by yourself! Otherwise, there will be consequences!" The two were really onto each other now.

Sophia smirked. She took a few steps forward and gazed at him, "What are you afraid of? I have nothing and I am nothing after my divorce with Colin. Do you think I can do something to you or the Pei Group on my own?"

Her words were reasonable. Jonas once agreed to that idea. But he thought it was not as simple as what it seemed to be. Sophia's recent behavior and acts would attest to that.

"Sophia, don't play with fire against me and don't blame me for not reminding you!" Jonas looked at the woman in front of him contemptuously. He really didn't believe that a powerless woman could play some harsh tricks.

He also believed that the chip was not in Sophia's hands, or she needn't have to work in the Pei Group at all!

"Shall I thank you, then? Is that what you're trying to say?" Sophia stared right into her enemy's eyes with a mocking look on her face.

"You don't need to do that. And stay away from my son!" Hugh seemed to be brainwashed by this woman. He had quarreled with him for several times already and even threatened to renounce him for this woman. Such ungrateful child!

Sophia twisted her lips, "You may get disappointed. As you have realized right now, I could get married with your son!"

She stressed "could" since she has not made a promise to Hugh at this moment. She told Jonas these words just to make him uncomfortable.
