Matthew didn't need to finish his sentence because Paige already knew what he was going to say.

She couldn't control the urge to laugh but Matthew's eyes stopped her, as she cleared her throat and said, "Mr. Huo, I think... you should let the person who said those words explain it to you."

Paige didn't want to be the one to do the explaining because she knew that Matthew would only respond with anger. Needless to say, she didn't want to deal with her boss's anger.

'Let Erica explain it to me?' Matthew felt a dull pain in his head just at the thought of it. He shook his head, knowing full well that he would never be able to get Erica to explain it to him properly.

Having realized that it would be more fruitful to just ask Paige, he insisted, "Just tell me!"

"Um..." Paige hesitated. She struggled to find the words to give him a response.

Matthew, however, had run out of patience and demanded, "Just spit it out!"

'Fine!' Paige had no choice but to start explaining. "Xitala is a surname. Recently, someone made a historical drama series which became a big hit. A female role's name there is Erqing Xitala. Although her face conveys innocence and harmlessness, she is concisely manipulative and vicious. When the drama series ran on TV for some time, this surname became a household name to every person in the country. The name is infamously popularized by the people who use it to describe those who are vile and detestable. So, 'Xitala, you'd better be kind' is an expression usually said to someone a person despises, telling them not to be so repulsive."

Paige figured "Matthew Xitala" must be the way Erica had addressed Matthew. 'Good luck, Mrs. Huo, ' she thought.

Each word she spoke caused Matthew's face to darken in anger.

Paige added, "To be honest, sir, it's also just a joke. You shouldn't take it too seriously."

"I see. Thank you. You can go now."

Leaning against the back of the chair, Matthew thought about how to punish his bold and troublesome wife.

Meanwhile, completely oblivious to the fact that Matthew had found out the meaning of what she said, Erica gleefully kept herself entertained on Weibo after Ethan fell asleep.

She posted a photo of her and Aaron with the caption—"Finally, I've met my idol! I'm so happy!"

However, her face was pixelated and the netizens were mainly focused on Aaron's handsome face.

Most of Aaron's female fans were unapologetically envious of her and one of them commented, "It must be nice to have all the connections. Mrs. Huo even has a clo

living abroad when the two got married.

"There will be more chances in the future!" Matthew implied that Harmon Lu would have to wait another day.

Fortunately, Harmon Lu decided not to make his life miserable and stood up, buttoning his blazer. "Fine. I'll be in Y City for a few days. When you have the time, invite Sheffield and Joshua. Let's have some drinks."

"Sounds like a plan."


Silence befell Matthew's office for about ten minutes before the door was pushed open from the outside.

Erica walked in with baby Ethan wearing a yellow onesie in her arms. "Phew! I am so exhausted! This little fellow is getting heavier and heavier! Matthew, come here and take him," Erica said.

Matthew put down the pen in his hand, walked over and took over Ethan from her arms.

Erica heaved a deep sigh and said, "I've got something important to do and I can't bring him with me. Please take care of him. I'll be back soon!"

Glancing at her, Matthew asked, "Where are you going?"

"Oh, I'm going to..." Erica paused and told him the first excuse she thought up in her mind. "I'm going to see a friend."

Matthew caught the look of guilt in the girl's eyes. Obviously, she was lying!

"I see," he simply said.

"Thank you!" Erica was surprised how easily Matthew had dropped the topic. 'That's it?' Erica was pleasantly surprised.

"You're welcome," Matthew said. He walked to his desk and sat Ethan down on top.

Erica grinned and waved at the baby before she disappeared from Matthew's office.

It was only Matthew and the baby in the office. The two stared at each other in silence for a while, before Ethan leaned forward and prostrated himself on the desk.
