David thought Leila was just a secretary in the Secretary Department of Shining Company. He didn't think she had any special relations with the president, so he never gave her any preferential treatment.

"David, aren't you aware of my relationship with the president? I'm not really the one who's asking, though. It's Aunt Melissa. Are you going to refuse to answer a question that came from the mother of the president?" Leila confidently said as she eyed David. She was sure that David would have no choice but to answer. All she needed was to drop Melissa's name.

David kept calm and put on a faint smile before turning to look at Leila again.

Then he eyed Leila from head to toe.

Leila felt uncomfortable underneath his gaze. She coughed and said, "David, why are you looking at me like that?"

"Ms. Zhang, I hope you understand that while Melissa is a director of the company, she's not in charge of the company or any of the work being done under it. I'm not obligated to her at all. If there's nothing else, I'll get going now."

David didn't care who Leila worked for. He didn't care if it was Melissa she was working for. He didn't like Leila anyway. Even if Charles asked him to even just smile at Leila, he wouldn't be able to do it.

Leila was furious as she watched David walk away.

The other secretaries in the Secretary Department saw the whole thing and just merely exchanged glances. Leila had several guesses as to what they were thinking. Either way, she knew that David had humiliated her on purpose.

From then on, Leila decided that as soon as she married Charles, the first thing she'd do would be to fire David.

"What are you doing? Don't you need to work?"

Leila snapped when she saw the other secretaries pointing at her and gossiping about her. She was furious.

Everyone got annoyed, but they chose to remain silent. They all went back to their work, ignoring Leila.

Leila didn't get anything from David, so she decided to

sla had left for her trip, she called Sheryl every day to ask how she was. Sheryl even thought that maybe Isla was just showing off because she was traveling and enjoying herself.

Sheryl wasn't annoyed at all. Instead, she felt very happy for Isla.

"My dear, Ms. Zhao, did you have a good time today?" Sheryl smiled as she asked. She teased Isla by speaking formally.

"Yes. How about you? How are the kids?"

Isla was visiting a famous tourist spot with Aron, and couldn't get her mind off Sheryl. After all, she'd left Sheryl all alone to manage the company since she was away on a trip. She couldn't help but feel guilty, so she called Sheryl.

"Don't worry. Everything's going well. When will you come back?"

Sheryl admired Isla. She only wished she could relax and travel with Charles the same way too.

As soon as this idea came to her head, she shook it off right away. She knew that this would never happen, and it was all just wishful thinking.

When Sheryl had finished talking to Isla, she contacted her lawyer. She made it clear that she needed to settle the divorce as soon as possible because she insisted that they all needed to move on from this sooner or later.

"Ms. Xia, I've already sent the letter to Mr. Lu. You'll have your first meeting with him, in court, in three days..."
