David carefully watched Charles' face as he told him everything. He knew how serious this whole thing was. That was why he was so hesitant to tell Charles in the first place. He didn't know how to tell him properly.

Charles' face darkened as he listened to David. He tapped his fingers on the desk rhythmically and stared off into space. When David finished his report, Charles didn't say anything.

David didn't say another word either. He remained standing, waiting for Charles to speak.

"Knock, knock," someone's voice suddenly intruded from the door.

Charles and David both looked at the door.

"Come in," David said after Charles nodded at him.

Leila took a deep breath, pushed the door open, and walked in.

She knew about the leaked files long before David did. She didn't realize that it would be such a big deal. It seemed that Holley's plan was working.

"Leila, what's wrong?" David asked coldly as he looked at Leila.

She ignored David. Instead, she walked to Charles so that she was standing across from him.

Then she put down some files on Charles' desk. She looked into his eyes and said, "President Lu, I heard about the leaked documents online. Here's my solution: I think before it gets more serious, the first thing we need to do is go to our partner's company. I would suggest apologizing to them and coming up with a solution. David, I know you have a lot of connections with news agencies. Have them take down all of Shining Company's ads right away..."

Leila continued to share her ideas.

David never liked Leila. He just wrote her off as a pretty face, who knew nothing about business. She wouldn't be here in the first place if it weren't for Melissa. But Leila really impressed him today.

The scandal had just barely started, and Leila had already come up with solutions along with a drafted proposal. She was even quicker than David.

Charles wasn't really planning on listening to whatever Leila was going to say because he thought that she was only making trouble again.

However, he was surprised that Leila had come up with constructive sug

tonight," Charles said to Leila.

"No problem, President Lu. If there's nothing else, I should get back to work now," Leila said calmly. She was on cloud nine but tried her best to hide her excitement. Then she left the office.

After Leila left, David asked Charles in confusion, "President Lu, Leila really impressed me today. I mean, how does she know President Xu?"

"Who's behind the leak?" Charles interrupted. His face darkened.

"It's the new secretary. She said it was a mistake. I've fired her just in case, and Alice will take over her job."

David was the person Charles trusted most in the company. So David had the power to decide on huge things without even consulting Charles. Thus, he didn't really have to report to Charles that he had fired a secretary.

"A new secretary?" Charles murmured to himself, lost in thought.

"President Lu, why? What's the matter?" David asked upon seeing the confusion on Charles' face.

"Are you sure about that?" Charles asked David.

He didn't really expect David to give him an answer. There was just a lot going on.

However, Charles didn't want to believe that these were all just coincidences.

"Yes, I'm sure, President Lu," David answered. He was confused as he didn't know why Charles was questioning him like this.

He knew Charles wouldn't get suspicious over nothing. Something must have happened that led to this.
