Sheryl gave George an embarrassed smile and replied,"Mr. Han, I know my abilities and I trust my judgment. So after making careful considerations, I would like to sign the contract with you, but…" She paused for a while. "I felt guilty to take such an enormous salary. Therefore, I think the article here in the contract should be revised," she continued.

Catching a glimpse of Holley beside him, George faintly replied,"Miss Xia, you shouldn't belittle yourself." "I firmly believe that you deserve this salary," he added.

"Thank you for believing in me. But..." Sheryl still wanted to resist. She paused for a moment before she continued,"I still stand on what I just said." With a smile on her face, she still kept convincing George to believe her. "I have been feeling indebted to you since you helped me solve the school admission problem of my daughter earlier, so I couldn't take too much. By the way, for the apartment, please arrange an 80-square meter house for me just like the former ones." She deliberately change the topic from salary to accommodation to distract George's attention. "In addition to that, I wished to cut down the previously-negotiated price by 1/3. What do you think of that?" she added.

George was appalled. He couldn't understand why there were some people like Sheryl who already had a greater opportunity to earn more yet wouldn't just grab it. Wasn't it unbelievable? Why did she want a lower salary where in fact other people were striving to earn more?

After letting out a sigh, he tried to rebut Sheryl's demand. "Sheryl, it's really unnecessary to reduce your salary. We offer you this because you just deserve it. Most especially that you have a daughter to raise." Holley didn't want to give up persuading her.

Sheryl couldn't help but laugh after hearing George's words. She replied,"I gave birth to my daughter so I must be responsible for raising her. I also need to discipline myself as to set a good example to her. And also, I made this request because of a personal reason."

"What reason?" George questioned faintly. He still couldn't understand Sheryl's point in doing this.

Sheryl paused for a few seconds and remembered what Anthony had told her the other night when they talked. 'BM Corporation is so unpredictable that the only thing I could d

keep you away from boredom, the apartment is just opposite Sue's. I hope you'd like it."

Hearing Sue's name, Sheryl paused. 'Sue has never contacted me since she moved away. She didn't even call me. Tonight, I must find her to have some talk, ' she told to herself.

Their friendship didn't need to end over such trifles.

"So..." Sheryl said with a shrug. "Could I go now?" She smiled, stood up and turned to leave.

"How is it? Do you feel satisfied now that you've made her sign the contract? Your wish was finally granted." George turned to Holley after Sheryl left.

Laughing wryly, Holley looked at Shirley's direction. "This is just the first step. The next step would be the real beginning."

Holley's eyes kindled with so much expectations. On the other hand, Sheryl could sense something was odd so she turned her back to look at the two. Seeing her action, Holly altered her expression and put on a friendly smile while still looking at Shirley's direction.

George seemed to still feel worried about Holley's plans, so he said,"Holley, I think Sheryl is different from what you've told me. I think she's not what you think she is."

"What do you mean different?" Holley asked with knitted brows.

"I couldn't tell," replied George hesitantly. "I just thought that she's not as bad as you've said. Otherwise she wouldn't have asked for a lower salary," George said in disbelief.

"That was just all her pretense! George, are you beginning to doubt me?" Holley growled furiously. "Tell me, are you doubting me?"
