Duncan wanted to defend himself, but when he saw the sullen look on Rachel's face, he stopped short. He answered, "Yes, Ms. Bai. I know."

"What are you waiting for? Get out! You are such a disappointment!" Rachel yelled. Duncan almost spoiled her entire plan. Rachel was tired of his stupid face.

After she gave Duncan a good dressing down, she decided to not stick to her original plan of meeting with Charles. Instead, she returned to her office and called Holley. "Holley, are you available now?"

"Do you need anything, Ms. Bai?" Holley asked.

"It's about Sheryl. Come to my office. I'll tell you everything," Rachel said. Her voice was filled with frustration.

"Today is your meeting with Mr. Lu, isn't it? Aren't you going to see him?" Holley asked. She knew that Rachel had been waiting for this meeting to happen.

"If everything had gone as per my plans, I would have met him today. But some issues have surfaced and we need to make changes in our plan. To avoid making things worse, I think it's best not to meet Charles before all these problems are solved," Rachel explained over the phone.

"If you have made up your mind, then I will be there right away," Holley replied, nodding.

"All right. I'll be waiting for you." Rachel hung up and frowned at the situation she was facing at the moment.

After so many years, Rachel had learnt her lesson. The reason why she had lost to Sheryl in the past was that she was not cautious enough. Now that she was finally back in the game, she didn't want to make the same mistakes again.

While Rachel was talking to Holley about Duncan's reckless decision in her office, their contact in Shining Company called Tarsan Corporation.

Rachel's secretary looked at her boss' angry face and knew at once that she had to cancel the appointment. She quickly apologized to Charles' secretary over the phone, and told her that their president had something urgent to deal with and would not be able to make it to the meeting with Charles. She asked his secretary for a rescheduling.

Rachel couldn't hear what Charles' secretary was saying, but she could tell from her secretary's embarrassed face that they must have been quite angry at the cancellation.

Holley understood everything that was happening very clearly. She teased, "If I'm not wrong, this is probably the first time that a cl

act, your company was sincere about working with her, while it was Duncan who messed up everything deliberately. To convince her further, you will have to punish him severely or even fire him for his misconduct. You should send another person to negotiate cooperation with her company once again, and she would definitely agree this time."

Rachel's eyes widened. She clapped her hands and said excitedly, "You're right, Holley! If we do that, Sheryl will come to work for us. What's more, Duncan will blame her for all of this! He is an extremely small-minded man and will make a fine enemy to Sheryl. I can't wait to see what will happen!" Rachel couldn't help but laugh out loud. She praised, "Holley, you really are an absolute genius!"

Holley wasn't surprised by her words. After all, she was really good at creating trouble for others. She just smiled and got up to leave. "Since our problem is solved, Ms. Bai, I will take my leave. Just call me if you need anything."

"All right," Rachel said, nodding. She was delighted by how their talk had ended.

When Holley left Rachel's office, she saw Duncan calling Sheryl anxiously again and again. However, Sheryl wasn't at work that day, and she ignored his calls.

"You are a married woman! Stop fooling around with different men! How long has it been since Charles has left home? Your phone is already a hotline!" Melissa's voice was laced with heavy sarcasm as she blamed Sheryl when she noticed that her phone had been ringing constantly. She threw a disgusted glance at Sheryl and continued to read her newspaper.
