"Really? Charlotte, do you know the president of Su Group, Simon Su? He is the most eligible bachelor in H City. Every girl knows of him. Now that you are working for him, people will be green with envy if the news spreads," said Daisy.

"There is nothing to be jealous of. I am his secretary, but sometimes I feel like his nanny. Moreover, he can be quite difficult at times. He is a picky eater and always drives me crazy," Charlotte complained.

Daisy parked the car in the underground garage of her home.

The two of them took the elevator to the Zhong family house. Charlotte hurried to the kitchen to make desserts.

It was fully equipped with the latest gadgets, which made cooking a fun activity.

Daisy observed that Charlotte was as smooth as flowing water as she cooked. She worked like an experienced cook.

"Wow, Charlotte, you are so good at making desserts!"

"Of course I am. When I was in college, I used to have two part-time jobs, one at a cake shop and the other at a milk tea shop. I learnt a lot back then. Also, I use materials with better quality which make the desserts even better than those sold at shops."

Charlotte grinned at her friend. Next, she placed the freshly made Tiramisu in the refrigerator and gave Daisy a glass of Matcha smoothie, urging her to taste it.

Daisy was amazed.

The slightly bitter taste of the Matcha powder and the fragrance of the milk tea, together with the softness of red beans made the concoction just perfect.

"Charlotte, you are so good at cooking!"

"Really? Thank you. I just hope these are good enough to allow the CEO to cool down."

The next day, Charlotte reached the office early and placed the Tiramisu along with the Matcha smoothie on Simon's desk.

When the door opened, she breathed a sigh of relief. If she could still unlock the coded lock, it meant that the CEO hadn't been suspicious of her.

She was unaware that no matter what happened, Simon wouldn't close the door on her.

When Simon came to the company and saw the desserts on the desk, he found himself in a good mood.

He locked the door, opened the cake box and enjoyed it.

Halfway through the cake, the extension phone rang.

"Mr. Su, our cooperation with NH Group has made some progress."

Dylan was on the other end of the line. To date, he was one of the few people that Simon trusted with all his heart.

"Come in."

When Dylan walked in, his eyes landed on the cake box and smoothie on the desk. The CEO had made no attempt to hide them. Shaking his head, Dylan asked, "Did you extort desserts from Charlotte again?"

"She has reaped a lot of benefits working for me. Can't I ask for some desserts in return?"

In addition, he had been able to witness the pitiful expression on Charlotte's face because she had to buy those expensive materials. As far as he was concerned, it had been worth it.

"I'm impressed. If you like her so much, just confess your love to her. How can you just be satisfied with desserts?"

From the beginning to now, Dylan had not yet seen Simon make any progress in his relationship with Charlotte. He was worried about his boss.

"That girl is just like a cat. She is respectful on the surface, but she's tough on the inside. If I get too close, she will slip away. If I express my love to her now, she will refuse,"

Simon said, staring thoughtfully at the fork in his hand.

"Then you need to think it over. She seems to be in low spirits today, and her eyes are slightly red."

"What?"

Simon put the fork down in anger and shock. Who dared bully the woman he loved!

"It seems to have something to do with her family."

Seeing that Simon was about to roll up his sleeves and go out to beat someone, Dylan stopped him imm

ediately, feeling a headache.

Why did his boss fall in love like a teenage boy falling for a girl for the first time?

"Calm down! How are you going to ask her?"

Simon stopped realizing that they were simply boss and secretary for now. He had no right to interfere in her personal life.

"Think about what Charlotte likes most. Think of something that will make her happy."

"Money!"

Every time Charlotte heard the words "pay raise" and "bonus," her eyes lit up. He had heard that she loved working overtime, not because she loved the company, but because she needed the overtime pay. That was why she had also set up a mobile bed in her office.

"But I can't give her money directly. She won't take it."

It was true that Charlotte loved money, but only the money she had earned it herself.

In the beginning, Simon had felt sorry for her. Therefore, he had secretly increased her overtime pay. But she had returned it to the accountant claiming that a mistake had been made.

"I know what Charlotte likes besides money!"

Simon said, his eyes lighting up.

"You were talking about NH Group just now. What happened to them?"

The topic changed so fast that Dylan was left in a daze.

"Oh, well, NH Group has initially agreed to cooperate with us. They are planning to send people to negotiate with us at their earliest."

"When will they come?"

"Around next Monday."

"Well, you should tell her..."

Simon told Dylan his plan.

Dylan could not believe his ears.

"Well, it's a strange plan. Will it even work?"

"Of course it will work. Just do it,"

Simon said confidently.

Soon, next Monday arrived.

Charlotte sat at her desk listlessly.

Last night, her mother had called to ask her to move back in with the Qin family.

Of course, she had refused. And she had even tried to convince her to move in with her.

The two of them parted in discord.

Charlotte hadn't been able to sleep until midnight. Even when she did fall asleep, she had nightmares.

Suddenly, Dylan rushed in.

"Get me the Nantes Company on the phone right away!"

Nantes Company offered translation services to Su Group. Though Su Group had their own translators, they would work with Nantes Company when short of men.

Seeing Dylan's anxiousness, she quickly dialed the number and handed the receiver over to him.

Charlotte listened in on Dylan's conversation and found out that Simon and NH Group had scheduled an important meeting for today. However, their company's translator had an accident in the morning and couldn't come. Thus, Dylan urgently needed someone from Nantes Company to act as the translator.

Unfortunately, the German translators from Nantes Company were all out today. No one was available on such short notice.

They could not even hire anyone else since the meeting between Su Group and NH Group would include discussions of sensitive business information. The candidates of other translation companies might not be reliable. If business secrets were to be leaked, the two companies would suffer huge losses.

Dylan looked around anxiously and then his eyes landed on Charlotte. "Go join the meeting!"

Charlotte was stunned. "Me?"

"Yes. Didn't you say on your resume that you studied in Germany for half a year? Your German isn't bad, right?"

"Well, it's okay, but I'm not sure if I handle something too professional." Charlotte hesitated.

"It doesn't matter. Today is the first time our CEO is meeting the German company. They won't talk too much about business. Just some daily communication."

He looked at her with a hopeful expression.

"Charlotte, you don't want our company to be embarrassed in front of NH Group now, do you? You can do it! You are in charge now!"
