"No...nothing. Just take care of Sheryl, okay? Give me a call if anything happens. I'm gonna leave the company for a while." Isla left in a hurry.

Phoebe had no idea what Isla was doing, but she could vaguely sense that something wasn't right. She heeded Isla's order to keep an eye on Sheryl, afraid that something bad might happen to her.

After leaving the Cloud Advertising Company, Melissa didn't return to Dream Garden. She asked around and learned that one of her friends actually knew Jackson.

Melissa planned to ask Jackson to give up on Sheryl. Since Charles was busy with his own things, she had to do something to help him.

Actually, this had been her plan from the moment she saw the flowers. But now, she was even more determined to carry out her plan. She would have to plan carefully to ensure her success.

Her friend's name was Henry. He was the kind of person who had a large circle of friends, and he was a bit of a social butterfly.

"Mrs. Lu, to what do I owe the pleasure?" Henry was startled by her phone call.

Smiling and feeling slightly embarrassed, she replied, "Hello, Henry. It's been a long time since we last met. Would you like to get together? Maybe grab a bite to eat?"

"Since you've invited me, how could I say no? Where would you like to go?" Henry happily agreed.

Henry was the CEO of another company that had held partnership projects with the Shining Company during Melissa's term. That was how Melissa had gotten to know him. They had kept a relatively good business relationship since. After Charles took over the company, the two companies still had some collaboration.

Melissa heaved a sigh of relief when Henry agreed. She suggested a restaurant nearby. Close to the end of the call, she suddenly added, "Do you know Jackson from the Leon Company?" This was her sole reason for the call.

"Yes. Why?" Henry was baffled.

"No reason. I just wanted to get to know him. I've heard that he's a capable and promising young man. Do you think you could invite him out as well?" Melissa made

on seems to be hard to deal with. I have to come up with a solid plan," Melissa told herself.

Suddenly, an idea popped into her head.

Her irritation soon vanished. Watching herself in the mirror, she nodded heavily as if she had made up her mind.

Returning to her seat, Melissa grinned from ear to ear, which was the complete opposite of her indifferent expression from earlier.

Jackson and Henry exchanged glances with each other. Both felt confused by Melissa's odd behavior.

"Jackson, I'm sorry if this offends you. But are you...Married?" Melissa looked like a caring senior.

The harmless look on Melissa's face successfully beguiled Jackson. He scratched and then shook his head, smiling back at her.

"I see. Great." Melissa heaved a small sigh of relief. Obviously, she was rather satisfied with the answer. Beaming at him, she said, "I have this friend. I think her daughter is around the same age as you. She's beautiful and gorgeous, and her business intuition is pretty good, too. I think you two would make a perfect match! Let me introduce you!"

"Hmm...I don't..." Jackson blushed. As he was about to reject, Melissa interrupted him.

Disregarding Jackson's declination, Melissa took out her phone and found a picture of the girl that she was referring to. Passing her phone to him, she said, "What do you think? Do you like her?"
