As she sent Sue to Anthony's office door, the receptionist politely left Sue to her own business. "Miss Wang, Mr. Xiao is inside. I'll excuse myself now."

"Okay, thank you," Sue offered politely in return. After a deep breath, she knocked on the office door.

"Come in," a passive voice called her inside. When she swung the door open, Anthony was inside, sitting at his desk as he busied himself with work.

"Sue? Why did you come to see me?" When he answered her call earlier, it was quite a surprise. He hadn't expected to hear from her.

He stood up and invited Sue to take a seat in front of him. Being the gracious host, he turned to her and asked what she would like to drink.

"No thanks, I'm good." She lightly shook her head. "I came here to talk to you, not to drink," she explained.

Upon hearing Sue's words, Anthony couldn't help but smile bitterly. He simply prepared her a cup of tea anyway, mostly to keep himself busy. "Well, go ahead. Why were you looking for me?"

"Did my mom… Did she come to see you?" Sue asked the question slowly in careful hesitation.

"No, she didn't." Anthony paused for a moment and looked at her carefully. "What's going on? Just be frank. Don't beat around the bush with me."

With a sharp sigh, Sue agreed. "In that case, I'll just say it. My mom," she started, finally straightly, "she's likely to come to you to ask for money. I just came to tell you that whatever she says, don't believe her. Ignore her if she asks for money. Do you understand?"

"Ask me for money?" Anthony just froze and looked at her, clueless. "What the hell is going on? Why would she come to ask me for money?"

"Just leave it alone," she said. She couldn't even be bothered to explain something that disgusted her. "Anyway, remember what I said. Don't give her any promises or give her what she asks for. Is that clear?"

Anthony looked at her incredulously. "You have to at least tell me what happened," he asked. "Did they make it hard for you?"

"This is my business," she simply said, albe

between Sher and me anymore. Please just leave that whole thing alone."

"Sher, Sher," Laura said mockingly. "What an affectionate nickname. Tell me, how can I believe that there is nothing going on between you two?" Laura grabbed Sue's hand and pulled her close. "Sue, just tell me frankly. Did the brat treat you badly? I'll teach him a lesson if I need to."

"No, Aunt. Thank you." She smiled with bitterness at the thought and retracted her hand cautiously. "Anthony and I had a peaceful breakup. It had nothing to do with anyone else. It was just between us. So, please don't speak ill of Sher anymore. She is innocent."

Sue gave them both a final look before taking a step back. "If there's nothing else, I have to leave now. There's something I have to take care of."

"Sue… Sue!" Laura still tried to call out and stop her, but Anthony held her back by the arm. With knitted brows, he faced his mother seriously. "Mom, please stay out of my business in the future. I know what I'm doing."

"Don't try me!" Laura said, cold and snappily. "I might not know about others, but I'm your mother. I know you best. I know you just can't get Sheryl out of your mind."

With a sneer, she pulled her arm away from her son sharply. "You'd better give up on her quick. Take Sue back, or I'll make you suffer."

On a final note, she went on and chased after Sue.
