"I agree with you," Sheryl agreed with a sweet smile. Her cheeks blushed, Sheryl whispered in Charles' ear, "Perhaps we can have fun in your car. Is this your plan? I remember that you don't like driving SUV. But today you..."

Charles gave her a naughty look and smiled. "That sounds great. Why didn't it occur to me? Oh, yeah, we can have sex in my car! I'm going to try something new. I'd like to see if it's more exciting," Charles responded with a wide grin, as he lifted himself from Sheryl reluctantly. He fixed himself up quickly and then buttoned Sheryl's shirts. Holding her hand, he proffered eagerly, "Let's go, Sher."

But it seemed Sheryl had some other plan. She leaned back on the couch and pulled Charles closer. "I'm so tired, honey. I don't want to walk," Sheryl said coquettishly.

Pouting her lips, she put her arms around his neck intimately and stared into his eyes. She wanted to see his reaction.

"Oh, is that so?" He drew a playful smile. Then he replied in an equally indulgent manner, "What about I carry you to the car?" Sheryl looked at him from the corner of her eyes and said, "What will your employees say if you carry me in front of them?" Charles gave an impish smile and replied, "Who cares? I will carry you in my arms in front of everyone. You are my wife. You are the woman I love the most. Besides, you're the most beautiful woman in the world. I will make you the happiest woman that others will be jealous of."

As he spoke, he lifted her in his arms and carried her to the door. Pushing the door open, he strode towards the entrance ignoring his employees.

And true to his words, the entire office staff stared at their boss with their mouths agape and their eyes almost popping out.

'Is this really the serious and aloof Mr. Lu? Why did he always turn into a sweet gentleman in front of his wife?

He is an aggressive business leader who keeps his employees on their toes always. But when he is with his wife, he seems to be an indulgent husband, ' they thought with admiration.

The young girls in the company started whining. "Oh my God, Mrs. Lu is so lucky. I wish that I could be carried out of the company by a rich and handsome man like this. When will I meet such a guy?" said one.

"If a man treats me so well, I will marry him immediately even if he has no money and status. But why couldn't I encounter such a man? Why? It's not fair!" remarked another one.

The female newcomers in Shining Company who were single all had their hands on their chest and a prayer for themselves on their lips as they saw the way their president treated his wife. Talking about couple goals, Charles and Sheryl had created a new benchmark.

Soon, Charles and Sheryl took the elevator to the underground parking lot. Charles rubbed h

specially ordered him to get more rest, avoid excessive fatigue and go to the hospital if he felt uncomfortable. He realized that he needed to reach the hospital at the earliest.

Without any delay, he staggered up from his seat, grabbed his car keys and headed straight for the underground parking lot.

When he finally plodded to his car, he could hardly stand straight. The throbbing pain in his stomach was literally pulling him down. He stretched out his hand to open the door, but a strong convulsion seized him and he could not even open his car.

He looked around helplessly. The strikingly empty and silent parking lot seemed to be engulfing him in its darkness. Suddenly a strong fear consumed him.

'What should I do now? The pain is killing me and it's impossible for me to drive to the hospital, ' he mused.

He got into a panic. However, he didn't want to die. With trembling hands, he took out his phone and made a call to his assistant.

The latter picked up the phone promptly. Nick told him about his condition and asked him to reach the underground parking lot as soon as possible.

By the time he ended the call, he collapsed and sat on the ground with his back leaning against his car. Cold sweat started dripping from his forehead.

A self-mocking smile lingered on his lips. It turned out that he was not as brave and strong as he had thought he was. He was afraid to die in this way. He still had a lot of things to do. Most importantly, he still had his dream that he had not achieved yet. He did not want to die. Not like this. Not now.

Time ticked away, and every passing moment seemed like ages for him. Slowly an engulfing chill filled the parking lot.

He eventually lost his remaining strength. Leaning to one way, he sank to the ground and lay curled up. He crossed his arms over his chest trying to keep warm.
