A smile appeared on David's face when he received a call from Charles. Just a few days back, he had made a blunder. He didn't know what Charles was going to do with him. So when Charles called him to buy breakfast for him, he was so happy and wanted to take this opportunity to make up for his mistake.

"Mr. Lu, I've brought your breakfast. And here are two more documents for you to sign." David respectfully kept the documents in front of Charles and said,"It's been several days since you have been to office. And since these documents are important, I take the opportunity of getting the documents for your signature."

Charles quickly signed on the documents and handed them to David without even looking at him. After a while when he saw him standing, he frowned and asked,"Why are you still there? Leave at once."

"Mr. Lu..." Charles rose from the sofa at his living room and turned back towards. David took a look at Charles who stood just in front of him and asked,"Emm... How is Mrs. Lu?"

He just wanted to find out what was going on in Charles' mind for the mistake he had committed and what could be its repercussions.

"I haven't settled with you over this, but I didn't expect you to bring it up," Charles retorted angrily. Then marking the fear on David's face, he sighed and said,"Never mind, you go back to work first."

Yes, David made this farce. But as a result of that, Charles at least got a chance to spend a night alone with Sheryl. That had mellowed down his anger on David to a large extent. Still he spoke in a stern voice,"But I warn you, if you fool me again in the future, I will definitely punish you."

"Mr. Lu, please trust me. I dare not... It was my fault. I am extremely sorry. I assure you, it will never happen again, Mr. Lu," David stammered as he spoke to Charles.

"Oh my god, it's almost nine o 'clock. Why didn't my alarm clock go off?" Before going to bed, Sheryl deliberately set the alarm clock to get up early and prepare breakfast. But the alarm clock did not ring and even Charles did not wake her up.

As she came out of the room, she didn't notice that there was another man in the living room. At the very first

te she took was to observe why and how the food tasted so familiar. And more than anything else, they were incredibly delicious and exactly the way she wanted her food to be.

Sheryl continued to eat the food silently. Charles smiled as he saw her enjoying the food and remarked,"If you like it, I'd ask David to buy the same breakfast tomorrow as well. So that you don't have to get up early to cook."

"Charles." Sheryl put down her chopsticks and looked at Charles who was sitting on the other side of the table facing her. "There is something I want to tell you," she said.

Looking at Sheryl's face, Charles could probably guess what she was going to say, but he still pretended that he knew nothing. "What?" he asked.

"I came here to take care of you, right?" Sheryl smiled and continued even before Charles could speak,"But the last two days I've been here, I feel that I haven't helped you in any substantial way except for the trouble I've caused you. It's just like this breakfast today. Even without me, you can take good care of yourself, so I'm thinking it is time for me to leave."

"Sher, you are thinking too much." Charles smiled. "You really helped me a lot here. Did you forget yesterday's lunch? If it weren't for you, Charlie and I wouldn't know what to do. Your being here means a lot to me."

Sheryl shook her head slightly and said,"Don't tell me that. Even the babysitter in your house could have done it for you."
