A touch of jealousy streaked across Daisy's clear face. She had thought that it would be easier to start from the bottom, but in fact, if they didn't have power, everything was useless. However, she realized it too late, and now it was a foregone conclusion. So she was even more jealous of Leila for her powerful position.

"But I don't think that office is as useful as it looks like. Leila, do you think you have the power?" Daisy asked.

Hearing her sarcastic and tentative words, Leila sneered in her heart. Not only Daisy could pretend to be weak to defeat the strong. With arched eyebrows, Leila changed her appearance like an emperor, "power? What I have now is power, isn't it? "

Hearing that, a mocking smile appeared on Daisy's face. What a stupid woman! She turned around, but was stopped by Leila. She turned around and asked, "what do I need to do as a undersecretary?"

Hearing that, Daisy said in a more sarcastic tone, "you can ask the director of logistics department for this."

"Oh," Leila said, "where is he? He just left and never came back. Did you see him? "

"In daddy's office," answered Daisy.

The smile in Leila's eyes grew bigger. Daisy didn't think she had said anything wrong, but she thought Leila would no longer be a threat, so she found an excuse to leave.

Watching her leaving, Leila could not help but laugh in a low voice. She was wondering how she could evidence and then Daisy just came here with some useful information.

On the whole day, Leila was busy playing a fool. She felt exhausted to disguise like this. She dodged Freddy's eyes and thrust the key information of the logistics department into her brain. When she was off duty, she felt like she could not support herself anymore.

Leila certainly did not forget today's family dinner, which was nothing more than a family dinner of the Song family. Leila always believed that having dinner with them was equivalent to losing weight. Looking at those disgusting faces, no matter how good the dishes were, Leila would thought them tasteless.

But tonight was different. Charles came back from Britain. He, who majored in medical science, had to come back from abroad because of his identity of the family heir.

Charles and Leila were childhood sweethearts. They used to be neighbors when they were very young, and they got along very well. Johnson had always thought highly of this nephew, but more importantly, he thought highly of the Qiao group that he would inherit.

The party today was in fact a "Welcome Dinner" for Charles. Everyone knew that Charles' parents died at a young age, and his grandfather raised him up. Now his grandfather was very old, so he could inherit most of the wealth. Therefore, in Johnson's eyes, Charles was a mobile gold mine, which must be obtained!

But for the sake of Charles, Leila didn't want to set foot in the Song family's villa anymore!

As it was known to be a family feast, Daisy and Sophia were waiting in the living room very early. When Leila walked in, she still had to have a smile on her face. She knew that she had a hard time of revenge. Every step was like treading on thin ice. She must make sure that nothing would happen to her before she could get her wish.

"Leila, you are back. We are waiting for you."

Sophia pretended to behave decently, looking like a 'kind mother', but only Leila knew how disgusting she really was. Leila criticized Sophia, "I don't like what you said, your family, so I'm not a member of Song family?"

Sophia noticed the change of Leila's tone and her face turned pale. She forced a smile and said, "Leila, you are so funny. Come and sit down."

Looking at her expression of being teased, Leila was secretly delighted. She wondered why she was so stupid as to confront them head on? Isn't it more interesting to pretend to be weak and defeat the strong?

When she was about to say yes, a cold voice from behind interrupted her, "you are really not a member of Song family."

Leila trembled with fear. She didn't need to turn around to look at him, but she could still hear him. There was only one person in the world whose voice would made her tremble, but why would Max come?

Hearing that, the temperature went down a few degrees. With an ingratiating smile, Sophia greeted, but the latter ignored it. Daisy looked at Leila resentfully and envied her for having to do with Max.

The treacherous look on Leila's face disappeared the moment Max came. She looked like a lovely cat waiting for her master to touch its head. Max took a look at her, with a glimmer of surprise flashing in his deep eyes. He held her in his arms and sat down beside her.

The simple greetings of Johnson was also ignored. But he didn't show his unhappiness. The man in front of him had a powerful background. It was a luxurious thing for him to stand by his side and breathe the

carbon dioxide he spat out. What he said just now made Johnson think about it.

He said that Leila was not a member of the Song family. Did he mean that he was going to marry Leila? When Johnson realized this, he paid more attention to Leila. If she could marry into the Mu family, it was a piece of cake for her to build another company, let alone the future of the Song Group.

Unknowingly, the protagonist of this' family banquet 'changed from Charles who hadn't shown up yet to Max who behaved like a God in front of him. For a moment, Johnson felt that his future was prosperous. The smile on his old face was almost invisible. He followed the words, "it is great that Mr. Mu comes. We are greatly honored by your presence."

Hearing that, Max gave him a cold glance and turned her head back. His cold and arrogant appearance was admirable. Johnson touched his nose and found an excuse for himself. He smiled, "Leila, call Charles. Why hasn't Charles come for such a long time?"

Leila felt that Johnson was really good at getting her into trouble. She wanted to call him, but she couldn't make the call in front of Max if she was ready to go back alive. Dissatisfied, she said with a smile, "I've lost Charles' number."

If Johnson still couldn't figure it out, then the salt he had eaten in the past several decades would be useless. Looking at Max, which was obviously gloomy, his heart jolted. At the critical moment, a gentle voice came from the door.

"Sorry, my flight was delayed. I'm late."

The voice sounded like good colored glaze met the jade, the contents of which were so modest. Leila felt a little happy, but for Max's sake, she couldn't give him a hug as before.

A tall figure showed up at the door. With a long brown coat, it was the most popular product at this fashion week. He showed his unique taste, just like a British aristocratic gentleman.

Charles was a smart man. He could sense the awkwardness in the room at a glance. He looked around and saw a man's emotionless eyes. He paused and smiled politely. "Who is this?"

When Johnson was about to introduce, he heard a low voice coming from the background of a man "Max".

Charles slightly raised his eyebrows. He looked at the man in front of him. He was wearing a black well cut suit, which was strict but not dull. His body was surrounded by a born king who was easy to be held breath. Such a man could realize it was not the water in the pond at a glance, but what surprised him more was that beside him, Leila was obedient and there was a strange combination between their movements.

Without any expression on his face, Charles walked slowly to Max and stretched out his hand, saying, "Hello, I'm Charles."

Max was calm all the time, but he did show respect to Charles, which was rumored to be Dr. Qiao long time ago.

His name had been well-known a year ago. He was quite famous because of the huge victory made by a medical research institute in Britain.

Max happened to stay in England for a year ago, and he had heard of Charles. For talents, he was never stingy with his own words.

Leila who was taking a panoramic view of the whole hall didn't find anything unusual, and she was even more surprised by the harmonious scene. How could Max be so good tempered? Soon, Leila knew that it was just a cover. In the middle of the family dinner, Daisy who had endured for a long time ignited the topic.

"I remember that Charles and Leila were close when we were kids. After that, we have grown up,"

'Daisy, you are so naughty. You set such a big trap for me.' Leila realized the change of the atmosphere around her. She pursed her lips and said, "that's right. When we were young, you were always making trouble to say that you were going to marry Charles. Now you are engaged to Veron, which is really hard to predict."

Max's slender fingers shook the red wine glass gently, and the shaking of the liquid made his eyes deep.

Hearing that, Daisy was speechless. She pursed her lips and glared at her resentfully. Leila was immersed in the joy of beating her down to win the game, but Max's words were like a time bomb, which was about to explode at any time.

"You seem to have a good relationship with Dr. Qiao?"

Although they got along with each other less than a week, and she didn't know much about Max, she heard it clearly that Max was furious.

Leila was always good at gauging people's mind. However, facing the unfathomable Max, she seemed to be a scholar meeting a soldier. She couldn't explain it clearly, so she licked her lips and said tentatively, "we grew up together."

Hearing what she said, Charles looked at her with an unusual look on his gentle face. He said, "Leila and I grew up together, and we were as close as brother and sister. Speaking of this, it's really like what Daisy said. In the blink of an eye, we have grown up."
