Noticing a doubtful look on Max's face, she nodded slightly and said, "Things are surprisingly smooth as you expected!"

Robert stood aside, watching them with a smiling face. Then he left the room silently while they were not paying attention.

Max couldn't help but hold Leila into his arms, "Don't be afraid, I am here!"

Leila nodded gratefully. She had always kept in mind what Max had done for her. Especially when she saw how Johnson had treated her on the board of directors, she had given up on her own father, and what left for him was only endless hatred.

"It's all right now. You will be in charge of this project. I think they dare not do anything to you."

Leila nodded slightly. She was grateful for everything that Lenny had done for her, especially when she was in the most vulnerable time, she was held tightly by him.

Leila's arrival interrupted Max's work. She urged Max to continue working but only got his refusal. The man took her to the lounge. Leila had seen the eagerness in Max's eyes these days but they were always distracted by what happened to the board of directors. Now that everything has settled, the man could not let go of her so easily.

Soon Max's kiss fell on her lips, and Leila failed to escape.

Lily was invited into the house enthusiastically by Johnson, she only glanced at the man secretly from the corner of her eyes. Panic was obvious on her face. She sat directly in the living room while he was not around. Apparently, she was stunned by what happened today.

Johnson turned his head and saw that Lily was patting her own chest. He walked quickly into the living room and asked, "What's wrong? Where have you been since you left the company? I didn't see you when I got home! "

Lily shook her head after a pause, and then gave a hint to let the assistant out first. She looked at Johnson. Although she was a little stuttered, Johnson was reading the company's documents now so that he didn't notice her expression. "Nothing. I felt uncomfortable on the way, so I had a rest."

Although Johnson knew what had happened today, Lily did not want Johnson to know that she was still in touch with other men, so she simply chose to hide.

Suddenly, a message popped up, which scared her so much that she dropped the phone on the ground. She picked it up with hands covering the screen. Johnson frowned at her unhappily. "What's wrong with you? You just came back and you are feeling uneasy."

Lily shook her head in a hurry, telling a lie that she was tired and hurried back to the room. Looking at the shocking threat on the phone, she deleted the message with trembling.

She leaned against the wall and let out a long sigh. When she opened the door and was about to go downstairs, she found that Johnson was already waiting for her at the door. She was surprised. "Johnson..."

"You look very strange today. What happened? Did you do something behind my back again?"

Lily kept shaking her head. Her face looked pale but recovered quickly. "What are you talking about? What can I do? I

ailure to live up to his expectations. He was doing this for their own good, however, Leila has always been Max's highest priority.

"Where are you going? It's not easy for you to come back. Why don't you stay at home?"

Taking a deep breath, Max left Matt's words behind him.

After his mother died, he had no affection for his father, and was even more unfamiliar with this family. He couldn't accept that there was a lot of disagreement because of different opinions.

When they left the old house, Leila was leaning against the back of the chair. She smiled, "you haven't changed at all. You didn't look happy even when you came back home."

Max raised the corner of his mouth, "It's all because the atmosphere at home is not so harmonious. Every time we go back, dad won't stop talking about the 'baby'. Is he trying to imply that I'm useless?"

Leila shook her head helplessly. Max turned to look at her and said, "Don't think too much about it. I'm very confident in myself. Cheer up and I'll take you to a place! "

Leila looked at him in surprise. Max was a little special today, but the phone rang at this time. She looked at the phone number and it was Wendi. "What's wrong? What happened?"

She frowned unpleasantly and then signaled Max to drive to Robert's house. The moment she got out of the car, Wendi rushed into the car holding Leila's hand. Leila didn't have time to react, she gestured Max to go upstairs and take a look at Robert. It was rare for them to quarrel with each other.

The car headed for the biggest and most luxurious club in the city. Leila slightly closed her eyes, feeling strange. Wendi said they had a big fight with each other on the phone. But since they got on the car, Wendi had been accusing Robert for not caring about her. Leila listened to it so hard that she closed her eyes for pretending to sleep.

All of a sudden, the car stopped with Wendi's cursing in a low voice. Leila frowned and opened her eyes. A Maybach stopped in front of them steadily and blocked their way.
