Sheryl had no idea what Roger and Helin were talking about after she left. She wanted to tell Charles that she wanted to leave, but decided to wait for him on the side instead, when she saw him talking to someone else.

Even though Charles was talking to Heron He, he still paid Sheryl glances at times to see how she was doing.

Worry grew on his face when his eyes darted on an empty space where Sheryl was supposed to be standing. He searched around with the hope to see her. Luckily, he felt relieved when he noticed Sheryl standing at a spot close to him. She was looking at him.

Not wanting Sheryl to wait any longer, he hastily told Heron He, "Mr. He, I still have something else to do later. Please excuse me first."

"Yes, of course." After a short conversation with Charles, Heron He felt satisfied that a partnership had been made. Smiling widely at Charles, he said, "Mr. Lu, shall we confirm the partnership then? If yes, I'll ask my men to send you the contracts later."

"Alright," said Charles with a nod. After parting with Heron He, he immediately walked towards Sheryl and asked, "Why are you here? Is there anything wrong?"

"It's alright." Sheryl smiled at him gently and continued, "If you have something important to discuss, just go ahead. Don't worry about me."

"I don't have any other things to do now; all the important discussions are done," Charles said indifferently. "Shall we go?"

"Okay, sure." Sheryl nodded gently. It was impossible to eat anything properly while on a wine reception, so Charles took her elsewhere for some light food.

Helin only decided to bring Roger to Heron He when Charles and Sheryl had left. With a curious look on her face, she asked her father, "Dad, what were you discussing with him?"

Heron He seemed to be in a pretty good mood. "Darling, you came just in time. I have just confirmed a partnership with Mr. Lu. To make it more interesting, he agreed to have you as the endorser of his company's brand, 'Kelly'. You should personally go to the Shining Company later. But remember, don't upset him with your tantrum, or else even I can't help you with it. Do you understand?"

"Yes Dad, I got it," Helin answered cheerfully.

Her brows were inseparable. She was worried that if she had displeased Sheryl, it would let the whole thing fall through. Heron He would get angry if that happened.

"Congratulations, Mr. He," Roger utter

ar that he was giving him a warning.

Roger had the courage to stare at Heron He who stood firmly in front of him. He was not moved, but he did not know what else to say.

The next moment, Heron He kindly patted Roger on the shoulder, as if no confrontation had happened. He then said, "You know what Roger, to be honest, I am quite satisfied with you in general. But of course, it would be better if you keep a good distance away from my precious daughter, Helin. If you do that, I can assure you of a brighter future in the entertainment industry."

"I'm sorry but... are you threatening me?" Roger winced upon saying those words.

"Of course not, why would I?" Heron He laughed coldly. "This is nothing more than a gentle reminder for you."

Despite his assertion of it being just a 'reminder', Heron He still fired Roger an intense glare and said, "You better choose, your future or my daughter. Do remember to always choose wisely."

Roger's fists tightly clenched as he watched Heron He leaving.

"Roger, what did my dad tell you?" The moment Heron He had left, Helin who had been waiting at the side all along came up to Roger. She took his hand and asked, "What exactly did he tell you?" Urgency could be sensed in her tone.

Roger turned and looked at Helin. He had always hated this kind of situation. He didn't like the idea of being threatened by others. He was genuine when he said he had no feelings for her. So he firmly opposed what Heron He assumed. Heron He's threat to him was not only pointless but also nerve-racking. It only made him develop a rebellious attitude inside him.
