"It's getting late. You should go home. Stay safe," Ashley said, smiling at Amaia brightly.

She was just thinking about asking Josef to pick her up once Amaia had left.

"But since your husband isn't home, you don't have to go home too, right? Why not just stay over at our house again?" Amaia asked.

Ashley was speechless. She didn't expect Amaia's kindness. "No, please. Thank you. I can't. I don't want to intrude. I also have something to do after this. Go home! I'll meet you at work tomorrow."

With a sigh, Amaia resigned. "Fine. Goodbye. Stay safe, Ashley."

After seeing Amaia off, Ashley called Josef and told him where she was. She waited quietly for Josef to come pick her up.

These were the times when Ashley was thankful for a private driver.

Suddenly, her phone rang loudly by her hand.

An unregistered phone number appeared on the screen. She just got a text message.

The message was an obscure threat. It told her that she didn't deserve Andrew and that she should leave him.

Ashley frowned at what she was reading.

After Andrew had left on his business trip, the Lu family had consistently troubled her each day.

She didn't know who sent the message, but she had a hunch that it must be someone from the Lu family.

Ashley rolled her eyes and ignored the message. She knew to wait for Andrew before she could do anything about these threats.

The morning after, Ashley had just arrived at work. As soon as she sat on her desk, a woman had asked her to go to Ms. Mo's office down the hall. With an exasperated sigh, she stood and left her desk.

She knocked on Ms. Mo's office door softly.

She waited patiently outside her office door.

"Come in," the woman called.

Ashley opened the door carefully and let herself in. "Ms. Mo. You wanted to see me?"

Kelly looked up from her desk and nodded.

As soon as Ashley closed the door, she immediately noticed a large man standing beside Ms. Mo's desk.

The man looked to be in his late forties or early fifties. He was dressed sharply and his hair was groomed clean. Even if he looked presentable, his shrewd eyes had made Ashley flinch the moment they locked in with hers.

Ashley didn't like this man one bit.

"Are you Ashley?"

The man asked. His voice was frighteningly deep and menacing.

Ashley for the life of her, couldn't figure out why he would ask, but she nodded anyway.

"Yes. Ashley Mu."

"Well then. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfort

otect me, Ms. Mo? The Lu family is very powerful. You didn't have to do this."

"Don't feel so special, young lady. If it were anyone else under my direction, I would happily treat them the same way," Kelly chided.

As if relief washed over her, Kelly leaned back in her seat and rubbed either side of her temples. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to put you through so much. I won't bother you any longer," Ashley said dejectedly.

Kelly frowned at what Ashley had just told her. "What? No. Don't worry about it. I have this under control."

"I...Ms. Mo, please. This goes beyond our relationship at work. I do not want to get you into any more trouble. Please understand that the Lu family is too spiteful and they won't stop here. Everything will be okay once he comes back."

Ashley hoped that Kelly knew who she was referring to.

"You know, I thought Johnny used his connections to get you this job. I was vaguely aware that you were related to him. But now, I don't think that's the case. I seem to have made a mistake."

Ashley laughed at the sudden compliment. "Thank you, Miss Mo. For everything. Especially for the last few days."

"I don't know what you're talking about~" Kelly sang. She was starting to feel a lot better.

Seeing Kelly's two drastically different sides, the one she knew as Miss Mo here at work, and Kelly at home with Amaia, Ashley could feel that she was no longer afraid of her. In fact, she was growing fond of the kind woman.

After exchanging a few more encouraging words, Ashley stood from her seat and left her office with a newfound sense of confidence, before hurriedly packing up her things to leave.
