"Ugh, what should we do? Leila's still in charge. This is going to be a bad day," Fanny groaned, furrowing her eyebrows as she complained to Wade.

Wade simply smiled and said coolly, "Don't worry, Fanny. President Lu's back. I don't think Leila's going to be in charge anymore."

Fanny breathed a sigh of relief upon hearing this.

Meanwhile, Leila had followed Charles upstairs.

Charles headed to his own office, and Leila followed him inside.

When they walked in, Leila was a little embarrassed. She pointed her fingers at her files on Charles' desk and explained, "Sorry that I used your desk. It was more convenient for me to work here. I'll ask someone to move them out now."

"It's okay. I understand." Charles smiled at Leila.

Leila then called the secretary.

Charles sat on his chair. He seemed to be lost in thought. A few minutes later, he said to Leila, "I want to hold a board meeting after an hour."

"Yes, President Lu. I'll arrange it right now," Leila answered anxiously as she glanced at Charles. She then left the office and promptly booked the meeting.

She was pretty efficient, and within half an hour, Leila had set everything up. Charles headed to the conference room just a few minutes before the meeting was about to start.

All the board members had already been waiting for Charles in the room when he walked in.

They were whispering to each other. Charles was finally back. They were getting impatient already as they didn't trust Leila. Now that Charles was back, a weight had been lifted off their shoulders.

"President Lu," they greeted Charles.

David followed Charles inside. And Leila, lowering her head, walked into the conference room too.

Actually, Leila didn't intend to attend the meeting. After all, she didn't know what Charles was planning to do to her. However, Charles had asked her to come to the meeting. She had no choice but to agree.

The moment Charles walked in, the board members became very excited. They were all st

while I was in charge of the company. I should take the responsibility." Leila looked at Charles tearfully. She tried her best to hold her tears back.

"You don't have to. You have done a lot. Don't worry. Now, go back to work," Charles said and continued working.

Leila then left the office.

When she walked out of the office, she bumped into David. Their eyes met. Neither of them was friendly with the other.

She forced a smile and nodded at him before quickly walking away.

It took everything David had not to slap Leila across the face. That fake smile of hers annoyed him to no end.

"President Lu, I've done everything you've asked me to. What do we do next?" David reported calmly.

"You can focus on your work for the time being. Let's wait and see." Charles knew that now that he had come back, the people who tried to murder him would try to do it again. As long as Charles waited, he could wait for them to strike again, then he could catch them and find out what the hell was going on.

"Sure, President Lu! I'll head out now."

"All right."

Charles put down the document he was reading again when David left.

The most important thing right now was to find out who was after him, so he needed to stay away from Sheryl and the kids for the time being.

He had to try, no matter how hard it was.
