"Congratulations. When will you be available to sign the contract?"

"What?" Sylvia was at a loss of words and couldn't seem to find words to express her happiness. At first, she felt confused, but then reality struck. When she came to her senses, she gushed and promised to sign the contract early.

Everything appeared like a dream. After she hung up the call, she sent a message to Diana to share the good news with her. She held the phone with a big smile and murmured, "It means David believed me after I slept with him, right?"

She blushed at the realization. Everything happened last night was beyond her imagination. It was like a ridiculous dream.

Sylvia arrived at Cheng Group the next morning.

The dream of her came true when she signed the contract. Everything went well making her mood light up. When it was lunch break, she had lunch with Diana in a nearby restaurant and told her everything about last night.

Diana's eyes lit up when she heard the whole story. She blurted in disbelief, "Mr. Cheng is famous for not being interested in women. We all suspected that he is gay. Oh my God, this is too exciting." She showed a thumbs-up to Sylvia.

"Don't tell anyone," Sylvia said worriedly.

"Don't worry. I won't tell anyone. You are my best friend. It will ruin your reputation, I know." Diana Chu raised her eyebrows and looked at Sylvia. "But... what about Mr. Cheng? Was he good in bed?"

Sylvia frowned then glared at Diana. "I don't know."

"Yeah right. It was your first time, so you can't compare him with other men. Anyway, this business is worth it. The first guy I met was a jerk. He was ugly, and he was a philanderer. Mr. Cheng is at handsome at least." Diana shook her head in disappointment.

Sylvia looked at her annoyed. "Thank you for your help!"

"Well, no wonder that was the reason behind you asking me if I was bleeding for the first time. Don't worry too much about that. How should I say this? The fact is he won't care about it. It could be your first time, but he won't care about you. It's just a deal. Give and take policy," said Diana.

"Diana!" Sylvia snapped. Her temples were throbbing because of what Diana said. Although she was right in a way, she'd give her best friend a good beating for telling the obvious so openly.

"It's almost work time. I'll leave now." Diana retreated immediately and disappeared without giving Sylvia much time to react.

Later, Sylvia received the down payment for the script from the Cheng Group. With that, all her disappointment swept away from her.

Sylvia couldn't believe at first that she was finally the owner of three hundred thousand dollars. It reminded her of the day when she used to treasure thirty dollars to the most. She found an ATM nearby and withdrew ten thousand dollars. She was happy that finally she could throw money on the landlord's face. But destiny seemed to have something else in its store.

A man suddenly ran over to her and snatched her bag from her before running away. Sylvia froze on her spot, stunned.

He stole her bag!

Her money!

"Robber! Robber!" Sylvia screamed at the top of her lungs and chased after the man. Both her card and cell phone were in that bag! She couldn't lose her bag.

If it was before, she would have run fast and caught the man by now. But she just couldn't run fast this

time. She was sore and paining, and couldn't move her legs. She chased after the robber all the way to the roadside, and the robber climbed over the guardrail and broke into the traffic. Sylvia also climbed over the guardrail regardless of her hurting.

A screeching sound came from near.

A car came to an abrupt halt, creating a dark track in the process. It stopped just in front of Sylvia and almost hit her.

Sylvia's face turned pale with fear. Her legs went limp and she tumbled over in front of the car. The robber escaped. She was so frightened that she collapsed in an instant, and hot tears streamed down her face.

The car's window rolled down, revealing David's handsome face. "You've worked so hard just to see me again."

Sylvia stood up harshly and wiped off her tears before snapping, "What are you talking about? You are flattering yourself. What are you doing?"

All of a sudden, David pulled Sylvia closer and she came crashing on his chest.

"Jerk, let go of me!

What are you doing?"

Sylvia tried her best to loosen his grip on her, but it was useless. She was pulled into the car by David. The moment the door was closed, he gritted his teeth and said, "It's dangerous to climb over the guardrail. Don't you know that?"

"It's none of your business." Sylvia glared at him angrily.

David let go of her arm and sneered, "Miss Su, are you planning to extort money from me by feigning injury?"

"Extort money from you?" Sylvia was annoyed by his ignorance. She pointed out of the car. "I was robbed. Didn't you see I was chasing after someone?"

Even if she told him the truth, David didn't believe her. He stared at her unconvinced.

"Stop the car." Sylvia reached over to the driver's seat and asked him to stop the car. "Please pull over. Thank you for your help!"

"Keep driving," ordered David.

Sylvia glared at him. "What do you want? I want to get out!"

David checked the time without responding to her.

"I want to get out of the car! Can't you hear me? If you don't let me go, I'll extort money from you and you won't be able to afford to pay for it." Sylvia raised her voice. His attitude was getting on her nerves.

David raised his chin and said nothing. The driver continued to drive silently.

His attitude frustrated her. She huffed and turned her head to look out the window. This was great. First she lost her bag and now, she was being treated as a hostage. Her mood turned sour.

About twenty minutes later, the car came to a stop.

David observed Sylvia frowning, then told the driver, "Have a general check-up." He didn't wait after that and got out of the car.

"Okay." The driver nodded.

"No!" Sylvia furrowed her eyebrows and straightened her back. "David Cheng, don't pretend to be a good person, because you aren't one. You brought me here for no reason. So, you owe me an apology. Hey, wait. Where are you going?"

Sylvia reached for the door, intending to chase after David, but the door was locked. The driver turned and looked at her apologetically. "Pardon me. I can't let you go. Mr. Cheng ordered me to take you to the hospital for a checkup."

Sylvia didn't answer but tears welled up and streamed down her face. The driver ignited the engine and the car took off. She sobbed the whole time at her helplessness and finally fell asleep unknowingly.
