Rachel's promise was a temptation that Duncan couldn't resist. He attached more importance to his son's future than money. It was a bribery he couldn't refuse.

Rachel filled in Holley about her visit to Duncan and their conversation. Having learnt about their deal, Holley smiled in delight. 'Sheryl messed up my life. Now it's my turn.

This is just the beginning. I will take everything away from her, bit by bit, ' Holley resolved.

"I see. Congratulations, Ms. Bai. Once Duncan insists that you have nothing to do with the kidnapping, neither the police nor Charles can do anything to associate you or Tarsan Corporation to the incident," Holley said with a contented smile on her lips.

"I am really looking forward to seeing Sheryl make a fool of herself in the public eye. Wherever she goes, people will judge her and spread rumors about her."

"That's exactly what I want. She ruined my happiness. Now it's time for her to be miserable!" Rachel said with a loud laugh. She was in a good mood.

It had been a long time since she had had a good laugh.

She was very satisfied at how everything had turned out.

"Cheers!" Rachel toasted in high spirits as she raised her glass. 'What a day! What a memorable night! I'm not going back home till I am drunk as hell, ' she screamed excitedly in her head.

"Cheers!" Holley echoed, laughing heartily as she raised her glass of wine.

They clinked their glasses, and the two grinned from ear to ear.

"Do you think Sheryl will go to her company tomorrow?" Holley asked after she had downed several glasses of wine.

"Who cares? But I don't think she will leave home for the next few days. She is not that stupid," Rachel said in a defiant tone.

"Hmm...I don't think so. Cloud Advertising Company is falling apart at the moment. If she doesn't show up, her company could be shut down permanently," Holley retorted, shaking her head. "I am sure she will go tomorrow."

She paused and looked at Rachel. "I was wondering if you'd like to join me

t in general, she was glad that Charles was being positive.

When Sheryl got to the company, there were only a few staff sitting in their respective seats, and they were not doing their jobs.

Some were doing their make-up, some were having breakfast and others were sleeping at their desks. She stood at the entrance, her feet glued to the ground.

When Isla came out of her office, she saw the scene in front of her. Going ballistic, she chided, "Look at you! Do you have any idea what situation we are in right now?"

"You can't blame us, Isla. We want to work hard too, but our boss has disappointed us. What's the point of us doing our jobs? We are going to lose our jobs soon anyway," a two-faced female employee said in a plaintive tone as she walked towards Isla.

"What are you talking about? I don't want to hear this again or you will face the consequences," Isla warned in a loud voice. The girl's remark infuriated her beyond words.

"I don't care what others say. But I won't allow you to talk shit about Sher in this office. She was set up. She is not that kind of person," Isla defended her friend. As a matter of fact, she had been repeating those words to anyone she had come across in the last few days. But no matter what she said, no one believed her.

People only believed what they saw with their own eyes.
