As soon as the black Porsche stopped in front of the bus stop, it became the center of everyone's attention.

Out of the corner of her eye, Michelle glanced briefly at the car and continued to look the other way, waiting for another bus to come.

Scott rolled down the window, revealing his handsome face to the people outside. A few women standing at the bus stop even let out an exaggerated shriek, as if they had just seen a movie star.

It never occurred to Michelle that Scott would actually park his car there. As the Jiang Group's CEO, she thought he should be afraid of having his face on the newspaper the next morning. In any case, she didn't want anything to do with him.

So Michelle continued to pretend she didn't know Scott. A couple of minutes later, the bus came. While everyone was still attracted by her ex-boss's presence, she quickly got on the bus. Seeing that, Scott was so angry that he almost jumped out of the car. But considering that if he did that, it would be difficult for him to walk past so many people, he gave up the idea.

'Forget it, I just stopped here to get some fresh air. She doesn't need my charity at all,' he thought.

Thanks to Scott, there weren't so many people in the bus.

Watching the view outside the window, Michelle couldn't help feeling a little confused about what happened. By the time she got home, the dinner was already on the table.

"Michelle, come on, wash your hands. Dinner is ready!" Olivia bent over and set the chopsticks on the table.

Michelle put her handbag on the sofa and headed to the bathroom to wash her hands. After she came out, she sat at the table.

After dinner, Michelle took a hot shower and went to her bedroom. She turned on the computer, and as expected, there were no replies to the resumes she had sent yesterday. Not feeling like doing anything else, she turned off the computer and lay on her bed. She planned to wait for sleep to come as she looked at the ceiling.

However, at that moment, the voice of her mother came from out

side the door. Since she had already turned off the lights in the room, Michelle turned over and did not respond. The next second, the bedroom door was opened gently. Olivia walked in and placed Michelle's handbag on the bedside table before turning to leave.

After the door was closed, Michelle opened her eyes slowly. She turned her head and looked at it guiltily.

All of a sudden, her phone rang, removing her from her thoughts.

Sitting on the bed, she took the handbag from the bedside table and pulled out her cell phone. She looked at the caller ID but didn't seem to want to answer it.

When the phone stopped ringing, Michelle lay down, but then it started to ring all over again. She ignored the sound and closed her eyes to force herself not to think about it. Yet, the other party wasn't willing to give up. A text message was sent into her phone.

She sat back on the bed and took her phone to read the text. It read, "I'll give you one last chance. If you want to get back to work, you'd better not be late tomorrow."

She frowned slightly and put down her phone on the bedside table before going to sleep. As a matter of fact, no one could tell what would happen tomorrow.

The next morning, Michelle got up very early. She made some instant noodles for herself and went out. As usual, she wore a formal black dress and a pair of five centimeter high heels.

Once she walked into the company, she greeted everyone friendly. In return, they behaved as if she had never left.

After that, she stepped into the elevator and went straight to the 23rd floor.

Pushing the door of the secretary's office, she looked down at her watch and realized she was half an hour early.

Later, when the assistant arrived, he was shocked to notice the movement in her office, but soon he recomposed himself and went to knock on her door.

"Hi, Michelle, it's really nice to have you back."

As she heard the assistant's words, Michelle smiled gently at him.

After that, Scott didn't show up until half-past ten.
