For some reason, Holley felt Wood was laughable and stupid as she watched how hard he tried to act. However, she was quite patient that she carried on with her own act as well.

Thus, Wood felt that Holley must've had a thing for him. He approached her again and tried to grab her waist.

"Why the rush? You haven't even asked me my name, who I am, and where I'm from—and you just want me to be your girlfriend?" Holley said slowly. Upon hearing those words, Wood looked at her and realized she had a point.

"Alright, then. May I have your name, please?" he asked.

"My family name is Ye. Oh, I think that you asked about who my boyfriend is, right? His name is Black Hu," Holley responded. Wood was quite happy when Holley told him her name, but when he heard her boyfriend's name, he got confused.

'Black Hu? I feel like I've heard that name somewhere, ' Wood thought.

'Black Hu… Hu…' He kept thinking.

Suddenly, something occurred to him. His eyes went wide open all of a sudden as he collected his thoughts. 'Black Hu, the young master of Hu Group? His father is Rex Hu, the CEO of Hu Group, who is not only connected to gangs but also connected to the police. Oh my God, is that the Black Hu I know? It would be so unlikely that they are the same person. They're not!' he pondered.

The mere thought of Black's background made his fat body tremble with fear.

His reactions didn't go unnoticed by Holley, but she just mentally sneered.

'Yes, in this city, those people who have power and high social status are treated completely differently by everyone. They can look down upon anyone. Besides, only a name, a single name of two words, can terrify people. They wouldn't even dare to mess up with anyone related to these names, ' Holley mused.

'And I'm just a person who hides behind other people's names. I'm just using Hu Group's name to intimidate other people, so what makes me different from them?' Holley thought bitterly.

The memories from that house the other night resurfaced in her mind again. 'One day, I'll make them pay. They will pay for all the humiliation and suffering, and I'll make them pay double, ' Holley resolved to herself.

"Beauty, you are not lying to me, are you?" Wood asked suspiciously. It was clear that he wasn't sure about what Holley just said.

Holley chuckled. "Lying? You really thi

dn't mean to offend you. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry!" he apologized and begged profusely.

However, Black didn't say anything at all. He wanted to leave, and grabbed Holley's arm.

"That woman on the floor is my friend. Black, I want to help her," Holley tugged on his sleeve and said.

At that moment, Leila was still sprawled on the floor, drunk. She wasn't aware of anything and didn't even know what to say when she saw Holley walk towards her.

Black relented to Holley's request and helped her get Leila up. Before they went away, he gave a good, hard kick in Wood's leg again.

"Thank you, Mr. Hu! Thank you for your lesson," Wood said as he kept bowing on the floor. He didn't even dared to mention the pain, even if he looked pathetic.

To stay alive was more important than anything. At that moment, Wood wanted to do nothing but thank all the gods he'd ever prayed to.

On the other hand, Black helped Holley to get Leila in the car. "Is this woman really a friend of yours?" Black looked at Leila and asked with a frown.

Leila was such in a drunken stupor that she had been mouthing gibberish the whole time. And after all that happened, her hair and clothes were a mess. She looked like a lunatic to him.

Holley glanced at Leila and looked at her appearance in disgust. However, she turned to Black and kindly said, "She is indeed my friend, she just wasn't in a good mood. She drank a little bit too much today. I went to pick her up, but I didn't expect that..." Holley paused mid-sentence and lowered her head, like she was distressed.
