"These were all taken last night. Let me show you," Edward said as he took his phone out and sent some photos to Emily's phone.

Emily picked up her phone and checked the photos he sent. Blood drained from her face as she saw how obscene the photos were. She was asleep in some of them. Some were enchanting and some were a little difficult to look at. But one thing was consistent: she was naked in all of them.

"I have an exciting video in my phone, too." Edward tapped on his phone again.

"Delete these!" In a panic, Emily tried to grab his phone. He smiled darkly at her as he raised his arm high, phone in hand.

"Maybe you can try to persuade me to delete these photos," Edward offered.

Emily bit her lips and stared at him with eyes wide open. "I'm begging you. Please delete all those photos."

"Are you willing to be my woman now?" he asked with his eyebrows raised at her.

The light in her eyes dimmed. She closed her eyes, her expression pained and helpless. So this was his real purpose.

"I don't have much patience. I will give you one week to think about it," he said in a cold tone, as if they were talking about business and not an indecent proposal. His face remained cold and stoic.

With one final look on her, he turned around and walked out of the room.

After he left, Emily crumpled down like a puppet with a broken string. It took her a while to get the energy and courage to move on. She put on her clothes and rushed out of his office in a hurry.

Her mind was a mess. Edward's words kept on ringing in her mind. 'Are you willing to be my woman now?'

Tears fell silently on her face. She didn't know what to do. She knew she should have been more vigilant towards him. But after what happened last night, it was more difficult for her. She didn't expect Edward would be so despicable.

Soon, she found herself at the lobby of her apartment building. She couldn't help but think about her mother and how she drove her away last night.

She only had a little cash in her pockets. That wasn't even enough to cover for her living expenses in a month. How could she afford to rent an apartment of her own?

She hesitated for a while before she finally decided to go inside the apartment. Before she left for good, she had to get the most important thing she had in the world.

Fortunately, the apartment was blessedly empty of her mother and sister's presence. Emily hurried to the cabinet and took out a box. It was locked. She took out a key from her pocket and opened it. A pocket watch was safe inside it. She palmed the details on the watch, her mind flying back to a memory some years ago.

"From now on, I, Emily, will be friends with Arya. We will never leave each other. We will share all happiness and sadness with each other."

"From now on, I, Arya, will be friends with Emily. We will never leave each other. We will be happy and sad together."

Under a sycamore tree in the orphanage, two girls swore solemnly to one another.

"Emily, let's exchange gifts! This is what my mother left me." A thin little girl took off a pocket watch that hung around her neck and gave it to a young Emily.

"I can't take this. This must be important for you. Your mother gave it to you." Emily felt the heavy weight of the watch in her small hands. She wanted to give it back to her.

"No, take it. To mark our friendship, we should exchange a token with each other. And my mother is dead. She wouldn't mind if you take this. She would protect me from the Heaven. After you take this, no one will bully you anymore," Arya explained seriously.

"Exchange tokens? But I only have this necklace with me." Emily didn't know what it was made of, but she had the necklace since she was born.

She hesitated before she took off her own necklace. "Arya, my parents left me this necklace. I hope it can protect you."

Arya beamed at her as she received the necklace. "We'll be good friends from now on."

The memory faded into her subconscious and Emily was back at the present. She put the pocket watch into her bag, placed the key of the apartment on the tea table and left.

She had made up her mind. She wouldn't be back to this house anymore.

She picked up her phone and dialed the number of her good friend, Maggie. She asked if she could stay with her for a few days.

Fortunately, Maggie agreed without any fuss.

On the second day of living alone, Emily went ba

ck to work and found that Edward didn't come to the company that day. She also didn't see him on the third and fourth day.

She was afraid of him, true. But not seeing him around made her even more uneasy.

Maybe he was playing games with her. A week almost passed and she still saw neither hide nor hair of Edward. She couldn't control her anxiety anymore and it was affecting her work, too.

"What's wrong with you, Emily? What kind of design is this?" This was the third time that Anna was mad at her performance. Anna raised her voice, making sure a lot of people heard her comments on Emily's work. Their colleagues couldn't help but shoot her sympathetic looks.

"I'm sorry. I'll take it back and modify it," Emily said apologetically. She took the draft from Anna's hands.

"Take these materials to copy. They will use it later for the meeting," Anna ordered impatiently.

"Alright." Emily picked up the heavy document on Anna's desk and went into the copy room.

She tapped some buttons to start copying and soon, copies popped out of the machine. While she was waiting, she sat on the lone chair in the room in a daze.

"Emily… Emily…" Someone call out to her but she didn't respond. Maybe she didn't even hear it.

A pair of dark eyes fell on her chest. The man's hand slowly reached out to Emily.

When the hand was just about to touch her, Emily woke up from her stupor and quickly jumped away.

"Manager Li!" Emily greeted him. Why was Manager Li looking at her like this? His stare was making her nervous.

Manager Li was startled and said with concern, "I noticed you look a bit absentminded recently. Haven't you had a good rest recently?"

"No, I'm fine. Thanks for the concern, Manager Li," Emily said with a smile.

"If you're feeling pressured at work, you need to find a release. You can talk to me, if you want." Manager Li pushed back his gold-rimmed glasses. A dangerous glint flashed across his eyes.

"Really, I'm fine." Emily shook her head at him. At last, the copy machine gave a long beep, signaling the work was done. Emily stood up and took her copies. "Anna needs these for the meeting. I have to go now."

"Okay," Manager Li replied indifferently. His eyes looked at the phone on the chair. It seemed like Emily dropped it on her way out. He wanted to yell at her to come back but it was too late. She was already out of the copy room.

When she returned to her cubicle, she heard a good news from Ms. Chen, the director. "Everyone, good news! The interior design competition held by the Chinese Architectural Association has finally announced. The winner will represent our country to compete internationally. Our company will recommend one employee as our representative."

Noise began to grow as everyone speculated on who they would be sending to the competition. "This is a good chance. I wonder if I can get in."

"Of course, you can!"

Everyone was excited.

"Everyone gets a chance to get chosen. If you want to take part in the competition, you have to submit a portfolio of your works before the end of this week. The company will select the best one," Ms. Chen said as she encouraged everyone.

"That's great! I'll try to submit my works, too," Mary Liu said excitedly. She turned to Emily and asked, "Emily, would you like to join us?"

"Well, it's a good opportunity to learn, right? Even if I don't get chosen by the company, it would be nice to try." The news made her less anxious. She would definitely work hard. Her dream had always been to become an excellent interior designer. She wanted to design a home that would make people happy.

When it was almost time to go home, everyone started to go one after another. Soon, only Emily was left in the studio. She still wasn't done with the design draft that Anna assigned her, so she continued to work hard with only two pieces of bread for dinner.

It was almost eight in the evening and all people on the floor had gone home, except for Emily. The sound of her pencil against the paper could be clearly heard across the quiet room.

Suddenly, she heard the sound of footsteps. Emily stopped with her work and turned around, looking for the person. When she didn't find anyone around, she went back to her drawings.

As soon as she turned around, a shadow fell over her. With a scream, her hand shook and drew a long line on the paper.

"Don't be scared. It's just me!" the man said.
