"What... What do you mean? Protect myself?" Holley said awkwardly, her voice faltering.

"Aren't you pregnant? Isn't that a way for you to protect yourself?" Ferry said sarcastically.

Holley couldn't help but feel frightened. She didn't answer and just waited for Ferry to continue.

"Getting pregnant is a big deal. You have to look after yourself and make sure that the baby is safe. Do you understand that?" Ferry's voice was dripping with sarcasm.

She looked at her cell phone in disbelief. She moved it away from her ear for a second then put it back to confirm that all this was real. Holley took a deep breath.

How come Ferry knew that she was pregnant? And why was his tone so strange?

How could the cold-blooded and merciless Ferry say something like that?

If Ferry knew that she was only pretending to be pregnant, he would definitely expose her. Why did it now seem like he was on her side?

It sounded a lot like Ferry knew she wasn't pregnant, and he was only playing with her, but why wasn't he exposing her?

Holley didn't know what on earth had happened but just hoped that this wasn't one of Ferry's schemes.

Since Holley hadn't said anything for a while, Ferry continued, "Don't worry. I won't force you to marry Jason anymore. Just relax, take care of yourself, and protect the baby."

Ferry's tone suddenly became soft—something Holley had never heard before.

She still couldn't make herself believe that Ferry was worried about her.

"Are you serious? I don't need to marry Jason anymore?" Holley asked hesitantly.

Ferry sneered upon hearing this. "Do you think I'll really joke with you like that? Or do you still want to marry Jason?"

Holley didn't have the courage to retort to Ferry. Instead, she just nodded. "I didn't mean that. I just... I..."

She hadn't expected that Ferry would call, so she didn't know what to say.

"You dated me

his head, explaining to Ferry, "Boss, I didn't mean it that way. I know the Hu Family can't rival you."

"Alright. Stop flattering me. Have you done what I told you to do?"

Ferry didn't like hearing such flattering, so he asked the man to stop.

"Boss, don't worry. I've already arranged everything. We're just waiting for your orders," the man said and smiled meaningfully.

Ferry nodded absently as if he was lost in his own thoughts. After a pause, he stood up. "Okay. Get out. Wait for my go signal before doing anything."

As the man left, Ferry strolled over to the balcony.

Ferry smiled as he thought of everything that was going to happen next and mumbled to himself, "Holley, it looks like you still have some use after all. I'm not missing this chance."

In Shining Company

Leila had just finished work, so she promptly checked the time. It was almost time to leave. She hesitantly glanced at Charles' office, and then she slowly walked over. She took a deep breath before gently knocking on his door.

Charles, who was in the office, raised his head slightly. "Come in."

"Mr. Lu, it's almost time. Let's go. Aunt Melissa is waiting for us at the hotel," Leila said as she entered the office. When she spoke, she lowered her head.
