"Get to work," Benjamin said and closed his eyes.

Hanley rushed out of his office, leaving him with silence. In his mind, Benjamin saw a person whom he deeply hated for causing him unforgettable heartache and suffering.

Meanwhile, two women were talking to each other. "Zoe, I want you to come to Dice Hotel after work for dinner tonight. Ava's boyfriend's parents are coming, so be careful about what you say," Carolina warned her daughter. She didn't want her youngest daughter to offend Ava Cao's fiance's family at dinner, for if she did, Ava Cao's wedding would be ruined again.

Carolina had almost lost count of the number of times Ava Cao's wedding had been ruined because of Zoe's carelessness. She was determined not to let that happen again.

"Mom, don't worry. I'll show up at the hotel after work looking gorgeous, I promise," Zoe assured her mother. "But right now, I need to get back to work." She then picked up her bag and left for work.

It was the day their company was welcoming a new CEO, so she couldn't be late. If she was, she would lose her job.

"What a stupid girl! I hope God shows mercy on us and saves us from any embarrassment at tonight's dinner." Carolina kept praying in the hopes that it would ensure a smooth dinner.

Ava Cao stepped out of her room, wearing a neat white skirt. She had natural makeup on, and was ready to go out. She looked at her mother and asked, "Mom, is my idiot sister gone? Have you told her? Today is my big day!"

"I already told her and she has promised me that she will show up like a good, beautiful woman. You don't have to worry," Carolina answered with a bright smile.

She then walked up to her daughter and gently touched her flushed face. She could barely conceal her joy when she thought of the fact that her dau

ghter was finally getting married. She was glad that Ava Cao would finally be able to start a new life of her own.

"Mom, I know that you are concerned about me, but don't worry, I'll be just fine," Ava Cao said with a smile and kissed her mother on the cheek.

She then walked to the foyer and put on a pair of high heels before she left the house. Zoe and Ava Cao looked like polar opposites.

Ava Cao was not sure about how she felt about her sister, Zoe. Although Zoe was family, she had shattered Ava Cao's dreams too many times, like a child popping bubbles.

"Zoe, you stupid woman! Go upstairs right now! Our new CEO will arrive in just fifteen minutes," the receptionist said. When she saw Zoe treading lazily, she couldn't help but urge her to rush to the elevator.

Zoe looked at her watch and rushed to the elevator. She quickly closed the elevator doors behind her and wiped off the sweat from her forehead.

Who could possibly be as stupid as her and screw up on the very first day that the new CEO was coming for an inspection? She tried to calm down by telling herself that she wasn't in a hurry.

As the elevator doors closed shut, she let out a sigh of relief.

"Don't be late again!" she told herself.

At this moment, her phone rang. Zoe took out her phone from her bag and saw that it was a call from her manager, Farley Feng. He was known for his "reminder calls." Weren't there five more minutes left?

Zoe broke out in a cold sweat as she gripped the phone tightly and answered the call.

"Hey, Mr. Feng, what's the matter?" she asked in a soft voice, trying to get on his good side.

"Zoe Cao, you are late for work every day. If you don't show up right now, I will do something extreme and you will regret it!" His furious roar came through the phone.
