Charles came back very late that night; by the time he returned, Sheryl had already fallen asleep. Everyone else was also asleep, and the house was quiet and still.

Sheryl thought that when something like that happened, she would suffer from insomnia, but she didn't realize that her psychological insomnia was defeated by her physical distress.

She slept soundly and had no nightmares.

As for what would happen tomorrow, she did not know. Even if she knew, there was no way to control. And she knew Charles was busy with her business.

Although Charles was busy with it, Rachel certainly wouldn't let Sheryl off the hook so easily.

As for who would lose and who would win in the end, Sheryl didn't know and was too tired to think about it.

Tomorrow's business would be tomorrow's business; she wanted to leave it alone for the time being.

She didn't want to think about anything now and she just wanted to have a good sleep so that she could go to the kindergarten's parent-child activities with full of energy tomorrow.

"Wake up." When the sun rose the next day and Sheryl stirred from her sleep, Charles was next to her in bed, his voice as sweet as ever.

"Well, when did you come back?" Sheryl asked, rubbing her eyes.

"When I came back, it was three o'clock in the morning. Seeing you sleep soundly, I didn't want to wake you up," Charles told her.

"How was it?" Although she told herself not to think about it, now that Charles was there with her, she couldn't help but ask.

"There should be no problem," he told her consolingly.

"That's good," Sheryl smiled. She was comforted by Charles' words.

"Charles, we're going to Shirley and Clark's parent-child activities today. Do you remember that?" Sheryl asked Charles.

"I almost forgot. Time is running out. Let's go together." Charles jumped out of bed as soon as Sheryl told him.

"Take your time and don't worry about it," Sheryl told him.

As long as yesterday's problem was solved, there shouldn't be much trouble today. Although Sheryl was discred


"Mr. Lu, I'm really sorry. After we separated last night, I really tried to suppress the news. But just this morning, Rachel exposed the story. We are also under pressure. There was no way we could..."

The person on the other end of the call sounded very embarrassed.

But Charles didn't want to hear any of it. He said, "Since you are afraid of Rachel's retaliation, aren't you afraid of me?"

"Mr. Lu, you have been in Y City for many years. We all know your character. You are a good man. You will not retaliate against a small enterprise like ours. But Rachel is different. She's vicious. We had to do it!"

Charles shook his head, stunned and also not wanting to listen still. He said, "I don't care what you're afraid of or what crap you just said. What I want is very simple. I want you to block the news as soon as possible! Otherwise, what will happen to you? I think you know better than anybody else!"

Not everyone had seen Charles when he was angry, but the person on the other end of the phone call felt the president's anger.

"But, Mr. Lu, the news has already been broadcast. Even if it is withdrawn now, people have seen it, and it makes no sense to block the news after they've already seen it," the person on the other side told him rationally and logically.

Now that it had offended Charles, he couldn't offend Rachel any more.
