"No. It's not like that." George sighed and thought that he'd better change the topic. He could talk about anything to Holley but this one. She would totally become a different person when someone tried to talk about Sheryl with her. George decided not to risk saying anything. Instead, he put his arm over her shoulder and smiled. "Forget it. I was just wondering why you'd agreed with her request to sign just a one-year contract," he tried to explain.

Holley turned to him and sneered,"One year is enough." Her eyes showed a sudden hint of rage.

"George, could you please leave the modeling company for me to handle?" she added.

Unable to resist her coquetry, George immediately agreed. But he still warned her,"Look, let's make this clear. You can do whatever you want to take revenge on Sheryl. However, if you cause losses to the company, I'll have to find someone else to replace you."

"Deal!" Holley replied firmly.

Sheryl soon arrived her room. When she was about to enter, she heard some voices. They seemed to be talking and laughing. She knew it was Anthony who came and played with Shirley.

She opened the door and greeted them,"Morning."

Anthony smiled and replied,"Morning, too. Come and have breakfast. I brought the famous pancakes here in Y City. "

Sheryl knew what pancakes he was referring to. She saw a lot of people waiting in a long queue to buy those pancakes at that shop before. But she hadn't tried it yet. She then took a small bite to check how it tasted. After taking that small bite, she realized she didn't like it that much. So she didn't eat more and instead, drank a glass of soy milk.

Suddenly, Sheryl heard Shirley asking Anthony to take her out. Anthony agreed but Sheryl interfered and immediately said no.

Anthony paused and turned to her. He asked,"Why not?" Sheryl looked at him and explained,"You knew that I've already signed the contract with BM Corporation, right? So that means I need to move in to the apartment they have arranged for me. I will be moving there tonight." Anthony nodded to show his understanding and sat beside the table. He then opened Sheryl's contract to take a look at it.

He carefully looked through the contract. Fortunately, he didn't find anything wrong so he felt satisfied and relieved.

"I think it's a good idea to sign an annual contract. In this case, you can quit anytime if something comes up," he commented. Sheryl smiled and looked at him. She was pleased to hear Anthony agreed to her decision.

Actually she was really grateful to him. He had helped her a lot and would always remind her if there were things she would forget.

Anthony paused a bit. He seemed hesitant to continue. Eventually, he said,"Sher..." He paused for a while before he continued,"I've booked a flight to US tonight. Since you've already decided to stay here, I have to deal with some stuff in the US. Also, let me just deal with the landlord about your moving out here. Leave everything to me. I'll just send all your belongings to your new apartment later, okay?"

"I can go with you," Sheryl offered. She knew that Anthony would always be there for

ating for a while, she added,"By the way, since we're neighbors now, so why don't you come to our room and have lunch with us tomorrow?"

Sue let go of Shirley and smiled. Her face showed that she liked Sheryl's idea. "That sounds great!" she happily replied to Sheryl. She then turned to Shirley and said,"My little princess, I'm coming over to see you tomorrow, okay?"

"Okay, see you tomorrow!" Shirley replied. The excitement that she felt could be seen through her twinkling eyes. She was so happy. She missed Sue so much and she couldn't wait to spend time with her again.

After they have agreed, Sue got in the elevator. Sheryl then led Shirley to their room and opened the door. A fine decorations of the room met them. Needless to say, Shirley liked it.

Since Sheryl didn't want Shirley to live in a mess, she immediately cleaned up the entire room. After cleaning, she checked the refrigerator to see if there was something she could cook for dinner. Unfortunately, it was empty so she asked Shirley if she wanted to go to the supermarket with her.

This time, she needed to do everything on her own because Anthony was not there to help her. As much as possible she also wanted to learn to do things by herself. So she didn't necessarily need to rely on Anthony's help all the time.

Anyway, she didn't need to buy too much. So, she only got some milk for Shirley and some daily supplies.

In one shelf, she saw a pair of cute slippers that caught her attention. She wanted to ask Shirley if she would like to have it. But when she turned her back to asked Shirley, she found out that Shirley was not with her anymore. She was stunned for a moment and panicked.

"Shirley!" Shirley!" she called out loud. She would go crazy if she'd lost Shirley. She felt very nervous. Many things came to her mind. She tried her best to look for Shirley in every alley of the supermarket. After minutes of searching, she finally saw Shirley. But to her surprise, Shirley was not alone. She was holding Charlie's hands while playing with him.

Sheryl felt relieved to see her daughter.
