Evelyn Su got a crick in her neck as she looked up at the towering building in front of her. She blinked, unable to believe that she had been hired by the most famous hotel chain in Asia!

She was thrilled to have landed a job at this hotel even if it was just an internship. If she made it through the three-month internship, she would become a part of one of the top five hundred enterprises in the world.

The Sybil Hotel was currently ranked number one in Asia. The hotel's headquarters were in Manhattan, New York. And there were 320, 000 employees in other countries. It had a close cooperation with other large enterprises, and a few tourist spots and resorts were also being developed. It had always been the first choice of stay for political leaders and famous stars in all countries. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that there was no match for it in all of China.

Working in such a prestigious hotel was a dream coming true for Evelyn Su! Taking a deep breath to fight her jitters, Evelyn Su strode in through the rotating glass door.

"Excuse me, it's my first day at work. How can I get to the Human Resources?" Evelyn Su smiled brightly at the two receptionists in front of her.

"You can find it on the fifth floor," one of them replied.

"Okay, thank you very much!" Evelyn Su said amicably.

After a few steps, she turned around and trotted back to the reception desk in her high heels.

"Excuse me, where is the Planning Department?" she asked again.

The two receptionists exchanged a look with each other.

Then the taller one answered, "It's on the eighth floor."

Bowing to the two of them, Evelyn Su said, "We'll be colleagues from now on. Nice to meet you!"

The two women were stunned and nodded slowly.

The general manager of the Human Resources Department was a stout, bald, and nearsighted man. He wore a drab white shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his arms. His ancient sense of style reminded Evelyn Su of her physical teacher in junior high school.

She then respectfully handed over her resume.

"Mr. Yuan, what will my job be here?" she asked sincerely.

The man raised his glasses and looked up and down at Evelyn Su.

Strictly speaking, she was not a beautiful woman. Few people would look at her twice on the street. Except for her bright eyes, there was nothing extraordinary about her face. Even her hairstyle was mediocre. Besides, she didn't know how to dress well, so she was easily lost in a crowd.

She had chosen a dark blue business suit and a pair of red high-heeled shoes, which highlighted her slightly chunky legs, for her first day at work.

'Such terrible taste!'

Mr. Yuan thought as he shook his head.

Following his gaze, Evelyn Su looked at herself up and down. Finally, she pursed her lips and chuckled awkwardly. "Red is my lucky color this year. That's why I choose to wear these shoes," she explained sheepishly.

"Well, you can start with the chores first,"

said Mr. Yuan, ignoring her silly explanation. Evelyn Su nodded bitterly.

It didn't matter. Every beginning is difficult. As long as she held on there, she believed that she would get the promotion in her job sooner or later.

"I'll show you around in the Human Resources Department where you can meet your future colleagues," said Mr. Yuan as he led the way.

Evelyn Su followed him. As soon as they stepped into the department, Evelyn Su found that something was wrong. The employees, who had been talking and laughing when they entered, quickly returned to their seats now, as if they were facing a formidable enemy. Evelyn Su was confused. She couldn't figure out what was happening.

Mr. Yuan suddenly slapped his thigh and cried, "Oh, no!

Evelyn, today is the day that our boss is coming for inspection. If you see him, you can't..."

Before he finished speaking, sharp footsteps were heard outside the door. Looking around, Evelyn Su spotted five or six men in suits at the door of the department.

It was almost like a military parade.

The man in the lead exuded a dangerous and dominating aura, which made all the employees immediately sit upright. Even Mr. Yuan nodded and bowed to him.

"Sir, you didn't have to come down in person if you were busy. We..."

The man interrupted Mr. Yuan in a tone that allowed no one to refuse, "Don't bother. I think your efficiency is getting lower and lower."

Although the man's voice was soft, it froze Mr. Yuan. He wiped the sweat off his forehead, licked his lips, and said, "Sir, Nelson Qiu is an old employee. I'm afraid it's not appropriate to fire him just because of a romantic affair..."

Mr. Yuan stopped mid-sentence and gulped nervously when he saw the cold expression on his boss's face.

"If he doesn't leave this office today, you will be the one to leave tomorrow." When these cruel words came out of his mouth, the whole office fell silent.

Mr. Yuan lowered his head, not daring to even breathe heavily. When his boss walked past him, his heart started beating faster, fearing that he would be scolded again.

Evelyn Su didn't know what they were talking about, and as she had done nothing wrong, she was surprised to see the man bypassing Mr. Yuan and coming straight toward her, staring intently at her.

When he got closer, she found that the man was two heads taller than her. She barely reached his chest. Her scalp tingled at the proximity and his overbearing personality.

'This man is... He is Byron Song, the legendary CEO of the Sybil Hotel! Oh, my God!'

Evelyn Su thought. With sweat drenching her back, she swallowed hard and retreated subconsciously like a little animal threatened by a predator, only to find that the man kept coming closer and closer.

"Sir... meet you. I'm a new employee," she stammered.

"A woman like you who doesn't care about personal appearances is not qualified to stand in the Sybil Hotel!" barked the man.
