Holley was lying in Black's arms when Ferry called her in the morning.

"Hello, who is it?" she asked impatiently as she was annoyed that someone had disturbed her lovely morning cuddling with Black. Holley hadn't looked at the number when she picked up the phone.

"Don't you miss me? We haven't seen each other for days."

Ferry's cold voice sobered Holley up immediately. With her eyes wide open, Holley looked at Black carefully and felt relieved when she found that Black was still asleep. 'Thank God!' Holley heaved a sigh of relief as she got out of bed carefully.

She headed for the balcony.

"Why are you calling me? Is anything wrong?" Holley lowered her voice and asked.

The mere thought of Ferry sent a shiver down Holley's spine. She didn't want to have any connections with this man at all.

Holley had asked Tom to protect her from Ferry, but it seemed as if Tom didn't do anything about it. Tom had also stopped answering her calls and messages. Running out of options, she then decided to stay with Black so that she would have the protection of the Hu family. After all, the Hu family had lots of connection and was a powerful family. However, Ferry didn't seem to be fazed at all; like he wasn't even scared of the Hu family. She really didn't know what it would take to stop Ferry.

"What? Can't I call you for nothing? I miss you, babe," Ferry teased. His playfulness made Holley shiver.

Before Holley could say something, Ferry sneered at her, "Do you really think that Black and his father can protect you? Why can't you just be with me?"

Upon hearing this, Holley turned to look at Black who was sound asleep. 'Such a loser!' Holley shook her head as she thought to herself. She understood she couldn't depend on Black, but his family was powerful, and that counted. She couldn't help but be suspicious of Ferry. 'Is Ferry willing to go up against the Hu family for me?' Holley wondered.

"What do you want from me? I've already done what you asked me to do! Leila's getting the files you want." Holley ground her teeth, lowering her voice. She was afraid and angry at the same time.

"Great, you did a good job, babe. As long as you listen to me and do as I say, you're going to live a happy life. If you don't, well, you know what I'm capable of. I can make your life miserable if I want to." Ferry was practically threatening Holley

ne started ringing, which made her anxious. However, when she saw the number, she seemed relieved.

"Sorry, I need to take this call," Holley said to Black. Then she left her seat and walked out of the restaurant to answer the call.

"Why are you calling me? Aren't you supposed to be taking care of Charles?" Holley asked Leila in confusion.

Everyone knew that the CEO of the Shining Company was in a coma and he hadn't woken up yet.

Leila was disappointed to hear this. She took a deep breath and told herself not to take it personally. She rolled her eyes before answering, "I'm not a nurse. You know, just because I'm watching Charles in the hospital, doesn't mean he'll wake up anytime soon or he'll recover with the snap of a finger."

"Then what are you calling me for? Do you have something for me?" Holley asked excitedly, hoping Leila had some good news for her so that she would feel better at least.

Leila sighed helplessly. "Do you really think that I can just go inside the Shining Company office now that Charles is in a coma?"

"Then why are you calling me?!" Holley was irritated. It had been a while since she and Leila had made the deal. Back then, Leila was confident that she would be able to seduce Charles. But what was she even doing now? She couldn't even get inside the company. Holley was starting to doubt Leila's capabilities.

"Once Sheryl divorces Charles, who do you think Charles will replace her with? Plus, I don't even have to mention the files. The company will be mine by then." Leila wasn't bragging. She was just that confident.
