It meant that the Hu family owned the largest stake in Tarsan Corporation and could hold a general meeting of shareholders at any time to bring her down, just like how she used to bring Rachel down.

Holley became scared when she realized this. She feared that she would have the same fate as Rachel. Having received everything she'd wanted and enjoyed the glory, she was unwilling to lose what she'd gained.

Her only choice seemed to be to win Black's loyalty and get him to give her his stock shares.

She had treated Black coldly for over a week with the excuse that she was busy working. She wanted to gradually stay away from him. But now she would have to reach out to him again.

"Holley, are you busy again today? I haven't seen you for a few days. I miss you so much. Can I take you to dinner after you get off work?"

Black was calling her once again and this time, Holley didn't refuse him as she'd done before. Attempting to regain the passion she had for him when they had started dating, Holley said, "I've finally finished my work. I miss you, too, Black. I'll be waiting for you after work."

Feeling a blush creep onto her face, Cassie smiled. She didn't want to deny it, so she nodded and asked, "Do you know if he's home?"

"Er, last night when we came back from a walk, we saw Nick carrying a suitcase. It seemed like he was leaving on a long journey. Perhaps he didn't sleep at home last night," the woman answered.

"Okay. Thank you." Cassie was disappointed but didn't forget to express her thanks.

After the couple had left, Cassie tried to figure out where Nick could possibly be. Had he been away from home?
