"How could she do this? I am starving to death!"

"I totally agree! Does she take pleasure in putting us through this trouble? Doesn't she feel guilty at all for starving us?"

People around the hall started raising complaints. They were all good-looking, young women with seductive bodies. And though they were Sheryl's colleagues, they always treated her unkindly. They constantly looked for mistakes in her and never missed a single chance to speak ill of her or make her look bad, especially when Holley was amongst them. Susan felt that they were being unreasonable, so she tried to explain, "Excuse me, Miss Ye. I don't mean to be rude but, Sheryl didn't come because she is unwell. How about I convey your message to her later?"

"No way!" Holley yelled, glaring at Susan. She warned her, "Susan, do not forget that I am your boss. You'd better think carefully before you say your next words. Your job is to do whatever I ask you to do and you are not allowed to act without my orders. Is that understood?

Go and tell Sheryl to come right away!" Susan wanted to object, but she just held it all in. She felt helpless in front of Holley. Sighing in defeat, she nodded to her and went to Sheryl's room.

Sheryl immediately noticed Susan's gloomy look. Susan told her what had happened. When she told Sheryl that she had tried to stand up for her, Sheryl was really touched that Susan did that to protect her reputation. A small smile appeared on her face. She didn't want Susan to worry about her anymore. "Thank you so much, Susan, for telling me what happened. I will come with you. Just give me a couple of minutes to get changed."

Sheryl was not at all in a hurry. She moved like a snail, taking off her clothes as slowly as she could. She just felt so good knowing that Holley was waiting for her. This was a rare chance for her to make a fool out of Holley; how could she let that pass?

Sheryl would have loved to make her wait longer, but she didn't want to involve Susan in her matters. But to her surprise, Susan had no intention of hurrying her up despite her taking so long to get changed. Instead, she asked with a touch of concern in her eyes, "Sheryl, are you sure you can do this? You don't have to come if you're not feeling well. Holley can't blame you for this. It's not your fault."

"Don't worry, I'm fine," Sheryl replied with a big smile. She wasn't afraid of Holley. She could very well decide not to show up in front of Holley if she desired so. But then, Holley would get angry and she would definitely vent her anger on Susan. Sheryl kind of liked the friendly, warm-hearted woman. So she could not let that happen.

"Okay, if you say so. But if you are feeling unwell, let me know right away!" Susan said, with a sad smile. Sheryl nodded, returning the warm smile.

Sheryl and Susan entered the lift soon after and when the lift started to move, Sheryl began to wonder why Susan was willing to disobey her boss and stand up for her. She turned to look at Susan and asked, "Aren

"We won't let you down, Miss Ye," the crowd said in chorus and cheered.

When they reached the restaurant, everyone was shocked by the gorgeous and extravagant decoration inside the restaurant. The intricate tables were filled with delicate cutlery which were filled with various dishes, especially seafood, which M City abounded with. It was indeed a high-end place to have lunch! There was no doubt that Holley had spent a great deal of money to please her staff.

However, Holley didn't touch any of the seafood dishes. Instead, she stuck to the home cooked food.

Susan was sitting next to Sheryl and noticed that she didn't touch the oyster. "Sheryl, taste the oyster. It's really delicious! Give it a try."

"No, I don't like oyster. Here, you can have it." Sheryl handed her portion of the oyster to Susan.

Susan's happiness was so obvious on her face, but she still politely pretended to refuse. "I don't mind having it, but are you sure you don't want it?" Sheryl nodded and her face brightened. She pretended to eat it reluctantly, but when Sheryl gave her the next portion, she finished it in an instant and looked like she was craving to lick the plate clean.

Sheryl couldn't help but laugh at her.

Holley noticed that Sheryl hadn't touched her food at all. She watched her for a while and then at last asked kindly, "Sher, why aren't you having anything? Is it because the seafood here is not to your liking?"

"Oh no, it's not because of that." Sheryl gave a weak smile and said, "I just don't feel so good today. I have to watch myself and make sure not to eat too much. I don't want to end up with a stomachache after I get back. That will affect tomorrow's activity."

Holley nodded in agreement and praised Sheryl, "You are very thoughtful about everything."

She then turned to the others. "Eat as much as you can today and order whatever you like as well. Don't worry about the bill. It's on me. So, don't waste this rare chance to have your fill of M City's famous seafood."
