Steven parted his lips, but Carla didn't give him a chance to say anything. Instead, she handed him a document, which she had just picked up from her desk.

"This is your contract. Once you sign it, you'll be able to help me handle the work in Yu Sea City as well as represent me when necessary. I'll also inform the districts so they can assist you in whatever you need."

Steven stared blankly at the document on her hands. It took him a few minutes to come back to his senses.

"Callie, shouldn't you have discussed this with me first?"

Arching an eyebrow, she asked, "Why? Don't you want it?"

Steven grabbed the paper, and he replied, "You've saved my life. Do I even have the right to deny you anything?"

"It's settled then! I wanted to have this arranged with you before I went to JA city. I have a parents' meeting at Sally's school to attend the day after tomorrow. So, until I'm back, you'll be in charge of Yu Sea City,"

Carla explained as she walked towards the door.

Steven's amber eyes started to blur while he watched her leave. When she was gone, he averted his gaze to the contract in his hand.

"Oh, I almost forgot! I'm planning on holding an art exhibition of mine, but what I have isn't enough. Perhaps you would like to have a few pieces of yours exhibited too? What do you think?"

Carla's voice suddenly echoed. Steven looked up and saw her back at the door, asking him.

However, she didn't stay or wait for an answer. She just walked away as if she had never returned.

On her way, Carla thought that she made a wise choice on having Steven by her side.

She was thankful that she managed to save his life. If it wasn't for that, he wouldn't have come back to help her now.

——

In the blink of an eye, time flew like an arrow.

Ten years had passed.

It was summer time in the Seaview Villa.

Carla swam to the pool ladder and got up, sitting at the edge of it. Next thing, she grabbed a hand towel nearby and wiped her face in the soft fabric.

"You were swimming much faster this time! You've made great progress!"

Carla heard Terence's deep voice coming from behind her. He had put a large bath towel around her shoulders, protecting her from the cool air.

Even so, she still felt a little cold, so she took the opportunity to snuggle into his arms. "Thanks, I'll take it as a compliment.

Now, where's our daughter? Today

ny of her calls.

Before her battery died from so many failed phone call attempts, she decided to give up and called a taxi. However, a Maybach came to a sudden stop in front of the gate, grabbing her attention.

A tall, slender and handsome young man got out of the car. His piercing dark eyes were solemnly focused on Sally.

"Sally, come home with me!"

Frowning, she pursed her lips and lifted her head in challenge. "Why are you here, Cody?"

"I'm here to pick you up. It's late. Don't you know that your parents are waiting for you?"

He approached Sally and held her elegant hand, pulling her towards the car.

"No, I don't want to go back now."

Sally cast another glance at the military compound. The gate remained closed, and she couldn't help but feel let down.

As she kept resisting going with him, Cody grabbed her, lifted her over his shoulder and got her into the car. Quickly enough for her not to react, he buckled her seat belt and reasoned, "Sally, stop it, okay? You've grown up. You shouldn't worry your parents anymore!"

He then closed the passenger's door, walked over to the other side of his car and took up the driver's seat.

Sally softened a little after Cody mentioned her parents. However, she still looked one last time at the army base gate.

Immediately, the car drove away.

Sean was still in the backseat of his parked military off-road as he watched the Maybach leave. When he was sure that they were gone, he told the driver, "Go back."

'Sally, Cody is the one you should fall in love with and be around, ' Sean thought to himself.
