"What do you mean?" Autumn looked at her suspiciously.

Leila was pretty, but she got jealous easily. Moreover, she had a big mouth so she could spread any information to every corner of this office. This is why no one liked her here.

Autumn had no complaints about her, but she felt that Leila might get into trouble one day because of her habit of gossiping.

"Before you came back, I saw Paula sitting in Ryan's office for a long time. I don't know what they were talking about exactly, but she looked very happy when she walked out. I guess that Manager Zhou must have promised her something and tonight's party is to celebrate that." Autumn cast a glance at Paula, who was clearly in a good mood.

But did Ryan's promise to Paula have anything to do with her?

"Ye, Paula was talking about the title of planning director. That position has been vacant for a long time. You've just completed a big project, so I am sure this position is yours but I learned from Paula that..." Leila knitted her brows when talking. She noticed that Autumn's countenance changed.

Autumn didn't meddle in other people's affairs. The position was no big deal for her. It wouldn't change her mind of working here. Leila tried to make Autumn feel that she was trying to protect her from the injustice that was about to happen. However, others might not think so when they heard her. They would think that she was only trying to alienate her from Paula.

"Leila." Autumn stopped her seriously.

"No matter who is promoted to that position, we all work for Cloud. Moreover, the selection of the planning director is beyond our control and I believe that Ryan will make the best choice. So stop saying that again. Don't get yourself in trouble." Autumn stared at Leila, whose face turned sour. She then softened her words, "Leila, the last thing you should do at work is gossiping with me. I know your intentions are good, but..."

"Ye, I understand..." Leila forced a smile on her pale face and said, "I'll keep that in mind. "

"Fine, go back to work." Since Leila knew her mistakes, there was no need for Autumn to say anythin

o were the first ones to leave the company. What took you so long?"

"Yeah. Did you two do something behind our back?"

"The first day I came to our company, I thought they were a couple. Mr. Zhou, if you really love Ye, you should express your love to her. Otherwise you'll regret it when some other boy takes her away."

Autumn didn't take all this seriously. Ryan cast a glance at her. A lot was said in this glance. "I'm afraid she doesn't have that kind of interest in me because she has already fallen in love with some rich guy."

His words embarrassed everyone.

Back in time, when Autumn started working for Cloud, Ryan even chased her for a while. But Autumn didn't reciprocate. So he gave up.

When he said that in front of the whole company everyone became quiet.

Leila broke the ice. She held Autumn's hand and took her to the seat next to her. "Ye, please sit down. You are our hero today."

"Sure you are." Paula was happy to see the tense vibe between Ryan and Autumn. She handed the menu to Autumn. "Ye, what would you like to have? "

Autumn had lost her appetite because of Ryan's words. She forced a smile and said. "I am not really particular about food. You all please order whatever you like. "

Ryan just sat aside, smoking. He wished what Paula told him was not true, but what Autumn had done really disappointed him.

Paula was right. He should take the edge off her.
