"Ms. Xia, is Lancy insane? How could she do that to you? She even cursed our company. What a crazy woman!" Phoebe said disdainfully.

Sheryl, however, seemed to be lost in thought. She replied calmly, "I don't think she's crazy. In fact, I think she's very well-prepared. I wonder who else she's working with because whoever it is, well, they did a good job. Their plan is going very well. They must be planning their next step now."

Phoebe was startled to hear this so she asked, worried, "Ms. Xia, are you saying that this wasn't an accident? And that Lancy is an accomplice? Oh my God, do we have an enemy that we don't know of? Why would someone do such a thing to frame us?"

Sheryl remained silent. A woman's name came to her mind. Since she had come back, trouble seemed to follow Sheryl everywhere.

"Phoebe, you've had a long day. Why don't you go home and rest? I'll take care of this. You don't need to worry, okay?" Sheryl said gently.

After such a long day, Phoebe was already starting to feel tired. Her back was aching too so she didn't bother to decline. "Okay, Ms. Xia. Don't stay up too late. You need to get home and rest too."

"Yes, I know. Bye, Phoebe." Sheryl nodded at Phoebe.

As soon as she saw Phoebe get inside a cab, she took her phone out and dialed a number.

"I need you help investigate someone. I need all background information on her and find out if she's been meeting with a woman named Rachel."

"No problem, just send me an email about her name and information."


Sheryl hung up and opened her business email. She found the contract Lancy had signed with the company before. In the contract was her resume which contained her name, phone number, education background, etc. Sheryl sent the resume.

Sheryl remained worried as she thought it over. Lancy looked and sounded determined back in the hospital. And she was confident that the Cloud Advertising Company would get a very bad reputation after

ndered whether it was an appropriate time to ask for Charles' help.

She only had one night. The news was coming out the next day, and she didn't know if the Cloud Advertising Company would be on the front page of every newspaper and magazine by the time she woke up.

Sheryl founded the Cloud Advertising Company with Isla. Sheryl would never allow someone to ruin it.

Sheryl sped up her car because she wanted to get home right away.

After Peterson hung up, he called Charles.

Charles was tucking the children in. He instantly put his cell phone on silent mode when he got the call and left the bedroom quietly.

"Hello?" Charles answered the phone when he was out in the hallway.

"Mr. Lu, it's Peterson. Am I disturbing you?" Peterson asked politely.

"No, Mr. Yang. What's up? Are you calling because you can't sleep and you want to spend the night with me?" Charles teased Peterson.

Peterson chuckled before he answered, "Mr. Lu, has Mrs. Lu discussed with you about her company's issues?"

Charles was perplexed. Sheryl wasn't home yet. 'Did something bad happen to Sheryl?' Charles was worried.

"Mr. Yang, please tell me what you know. Sher isn't home yet."

"Oh, okay. Mrs. Lu called me just now and told me about…"

"About what?" Charles interrupted Peterson anxiously.
