There was a slight hurt look on Sue's face when she found out that Abby was allowed to assume that she had some dirty tricks up her sleeve. If there was anything that the innocent woman hated, it was being judged and misunderstood.

"Whatever it is that you think about me, go ahead and think it. But, you have to know that I have a clean intention and I have no business hurting Sheryl. I don't plan to bring her harm. I promise," Sue generously explained with eyes that did not lie.

"I sure do hope so," Abby replied in a passive-aggressive tone, implying that she did not believe a single thing Sue was saying. "Don't forget that Sher trusts you more than anyone, but I don't; I'll be watching you all the time. If you even try to hurt her, I will know. I suggest you figure out how you'll get through the consequences now," the misled woman threatened the wrongly accused one.

Usually, Abby's approach would easily create a fuss; people would immediately get mad and be all defensive about it.

However, Sue did not feel even the slightest of spite for the woman before her -- she did do something in the past to harm her friendship with Sheryl and she understood that whatever Abby was doing was out of concern for Sheryl.

If she were Abby, she'd probably do the same thing for Sheryl.

"Okay, I'll keep that in mind," Sue assured the confrontational woman, making sure that she understood that the situation was being handled maturely.

Abby didn't say anything more once she heard what she wanted to hear. After dropping Sue off at the gate of BM Corporation, she quickly drove away. The mature woman who was proud of how she handled the confrontation gave herself a pat on the back before heading straight to Holley's office.

Knock! Knock! "Come in!"

After Holley told her to come in, Sue pushed the door open and gently invited herself inside Holley's office, keeping her manners and professionalism. Holley, who was on the phone, motioned for her guest to take a seat before ending her call. "Yeah, I see what you're saying. I'm sorry, but can I get back to you later? I have something urgent to deal with right now. Okay, thank you. Bye," the corporate woman said.

After dropping the call, the woman walked up to Sue and gave her a big, welcoming smile. "My secretary just brought in some freshly squeezed orange juice. Would you like some?" Holley offered enthusiastically.

"No, thank you, Miss Ye," the shy woman refused politely. She somehow had an intuition that this seemingly kind and careful Holley had more secrets than she let off.

It was strange to Sue that Holley always carried around a big, bright smile on her face. For some reason, Sue could not feel the sincerity of the woman's enthusiasm.

"I've heard so much about you and your family," Holley uttered in an almost-angry voice, sympathizing with Sue. "Sorry, I have been so busy focusing on the company's welfare recently. I should have

in utter disbelief. Her eyes widened in surprise as she stared at Sue. "Are you kidding me? You're taking a year off? How long is your contract period?" the boss bombarded her model with questions.

"I know it's difficult for you to grant me this request, Miss Ye, but I have no other choice," Sue explained with a bitter smile on her face. "I'm pregnant and I want to devote more time for this upcoming baby," she added.

"You're pregnant?" the boss asked, hoping for a reiteration. Holley was taken aback by the sudden news. After a brief pause, she inquired, "Is the father Anthony?"

"Yes," Sue answered honestly. She hesitated for a while and eventually went on saying, "The time of the contract can be extended for another year. Surely, in my case, it is impossible for me to walk in high heels while carrying another human being in my belly, isn't it?"

"Yes, you're right. The health of you and your baby is now paramount," Holley agreed and echoed Sue's idea. If the truth were to be told, Holley tensed up in excitement when she learned that Sue was carrying Anthony's baby. She immediately decided on Sue's request, saying, "Tell the personnel department that I've given you the permission to take a year off."

"Thank you very much, Miss Ye." Sue's face lit up in joy of the approved request. It was not all the time that authorities gave her what she asked. "If there's nothing more you require of me, I'll head to the personnel department," said the happy soon-to-be mother.

"Hold on, Sue," Holly said, robbing Sue of her celebration. "How are you and Anthony doing?" the boss interfered.

"Miss Ye, I don't think that has anything to do with our professional relationship," Sue blurted out in a stern voice with her face growing cold. "I don't know what you're planning to do, but I'm telling you, if you try to undermine Sheryl, I'm not letting you get away with it," Sue threatened her boss fiercely for her friend before storming off.
