It was the time for the big announcement and the entire crew was anxious about it. Holley knew what bothered her staff the most. She smiled as she addressed the staff and said,"As you know, we have decided to provide you a better platform and better working conditions. Besides, since our company will do business with each big film corporation, if anyone wants to make career change, we can offer a hand."

Holley's words assured everyone except for Sheryl. She could sense something wrong but she couldn't tell exactly what it was.

Holley waited for a while watching the reaction of the staff. Then she smiled and continued,"I'm an easy going woman. I'm more of a friend to you than your superior or your boss. I will protect you no matter what. You can be assured that you can come to me for anything whenever you want. I will always be easy to speak with. But there's only one thing I'd like to remind you..."

Suddenly the smile disappeared into a grave expression on her face as she sneered and continued,"I hope that the one who is cultivated by me will be well behaved. If she doesn't, I will definitely make her regret for her entire life. Don't blame me for that."

As Holley spoke, she cast a subtle glance at Sheryl as if the words she said were intentionally aimed at Sheryl. Sheryl stood there with her head lowered as if even she could very well understand that Holley's speech was directed towards her. From the corner of her eyes she could see Holley glancing upon her which made her quiver. She had this weird uncanny feeling which stopped her from feeling secured unlike her other colleagues.

Some brown-noser immediately declared her determination. "Miss Ye, please be assured. We will be well behaved."

Holley laughed as her face changed once again into a satisfied and benevolent look. "That's all I want to say. All in all, I wish we could get along with each other in the following days."

After Holley took her seat, George stood up and smiled as he addressed the staff,"I think it is clear by now that this department will be under full charge of Miss Ye. I hope everyone will be get along with each other."

After the brief meeting ended, everyone surrounded Holley, licking her shoes. Sheryl stood at one corner as her mind remained preoccupied with her Shirley's ill health. She had no interest in taking part in such activities.

She stood there for a while and planned to leave secretly. But just t

it true?" Holley turned towards Sheryl and asked for a confirmation with a puzzled look.

Sheryl nodded her head and remained silent. Holley frowned and said,"Why didn't you tell me the truth? I wouldn't have forced you to join us if I knew it earlier."

Holley let out a sigh and continued. "Take good care of your daughter. Forget about the bar party tonight. We'll do it together some other time in the future."

"But..." Sheryl hesitated for a moment thinking about George's ultimatum that everyone would have to go. Holley marked the perplexed look on her face and smiled in a reassuring manner.

"Don't worry. I'll take care of it." Holley seemed to have guessed Sheryl's cause of concern. She then smiled and said to Sheryl,"The most important thing for you now is to take good care of your daughter. Go ahead."

"Okay then. I'm leaving now." Sheryl heaved a sigh of relief. However, she knew that even though she had dodged a bullet this time, she would definitely not be so lucky next time.

When Holley looked at Sheryl's back as she walked towards the door, a weird smile came on her face.

It was still too early for the party. Everyone dispersed to go home and get dressed up. Holley planned to take some rest at home with George. Just as she sat on the car and motioned the chauffer to drive her home, she received a phone call.

Though the call was not from a saved number, staring at the number for a while made her go completely pale on her face and her eye balls literally popped out. A chill ran down her spine and she sat erect in her car seat staring at the number as her phone kept ringing.
