"It was you, Charles! Why did you do that to me?" Mr. Xu was a smart man. He quickly realized that Charles had set him up.

As Charles approached him with a menacing look, Mr. Xu suddenly realized that something was wrong. When Charles spoke, it confirmed his rousing suspicion.

"I know you and my former secretary go way back. This project is quite big, so I was worried that you couldn't handle it alone. I thought maybe I could help with that. After giving it much thought, I've decided it's better if I handle this project, thus effectively replacing you," Charles said with an evil smile, leaving Mr. Xu speechless.

Mr. Xu didn't know what to do. This was the last thing he had expected. Charles was sneaky, and he didn't see it coming.

He had thought he beat Charles, and he couldn't believe that Charles was able to so quickly turn the tables on him. Now Charles was at the advantage while he was losing and being cornered.

"Charles, how did you..."

"Okay, let's put an end to this now. Mr. Xu, we're going to take it from here. I've booked your flight for you. Just go home," David interrupted.

Mr. Xu helplessly sighed as he conceded, saying, "Okay, Charles! You win!" Then Mr. Xu turned and left the hotel.

Charles knew this fight was not over. Even if he was able to handle Mr. Xu now, he knew that the company was probably going to send someone else. Charles wouldn't let his guard down until then.

Around half an hour after Mr. Xu had left, another representative arrived to negotiate with Charles.

The negotiations went well, but Charles was cautious throughout the entire process.

David knew he wasn't going to be of any help during the meeting, so he chose to wait outside the room.

At Cloud Advertising Company

Sheryl stayed in her office with Phoebe. There was so much to do that they'd worked overtime again.

"Mrs. Xia, how long do you still have to continue to work tonight?" Phoebe asked, casting Sheryl a keen look.

Sheryl immediately read what was on her mind. She figured Phoebe must have a date with Sean tonight. Phoebe wanted to make sure that she wouldn't be late for the date.

"I'm almost done. You can leave now if you want. It's fine!" Sheryl smiled. She kept her eyes on the screen as she responded to Phoebe.

Phoebe couldn't be happier. Before she left, she wanted to make sure that Sheryl would be able to finish the remaining workload alone. While she didn't like being

ds for too long, but they had still gotten quite close in the short time they knew each other.

"Sheryl, why are you treating me like this? Don't be so cold to me. I want the Sheryl I used to know..." Damian pretended to be heartbroken, placing his hand over his chest.

Sheryl couldn't help but chuckle.

"Okay, fine. You win. I was just making fun of you, but that thing that you did really pissed me off!"

"Let's have dinner tonight. It will be my peace offering. My way of apologizing. I already know a nice place," Damian offered.

Sheryl couldn't refuse. Damian was already here, so she had no choice but to agree.

Sheryl saw Damian as a sincere and reliable man. She was grateful that she had met him. When she had left the country, he always accompanied her so that she wouldn't be lonely.

"Are you sure? Aren't you new here? I should pick where we could go since I'm the one who lives here," Sheryl countered.

"All right, that sounds better," Damian agreed lightheartedly. His eyes were expectant, wondering where Sheryl was going to take him.

This was the first time that they were going to eat together in the city, so Sheryl knew she needed to pick a nice place. She racked her mind trying to come up with an idea. She decided to go to a western restaurant since that was what Damian was used to.

As soon as she'd decided on the restaurant, they got into the car and drove off.

Soon, they arrived at their destination.

After ordering their food, Sheryl handed the menu back to the waiter. When she turned to look at Damian, who was sitting across from her, she found him staring at her.
