(The dinning party(1)

"Mrs.Lu, what brings you here today?" David was busy at that time, but he was stunned to see Autumn there. So he stopped for a minute and approached her. "The president is not here right now."

"Where is Leila?" Autumn asked subtly. "Leila is out with the president; there is a dining party planned for this evening.

Why are you here at this odd time?"

David seemed to be out of favor these days; Charles took Leila with him no matter where he went. David knew that Leila helped Charles sign several big orders, which no doubt indicated of her strong ability to handle work professionally. So David could understand why Charles thought so highly of Leila.

David was not bitter, but it did not mean that Autumn was not angry about it, either. She frowned as she further asked, "David, in the past didn't you always accompany him on such occasions? Since when has it become Leila and why?"

David was stunned, as he realized Autumn was jealous, so without wasting a second he explained, "Please don't misunderstand the situation. Leila has helped Mr. Lu bag several big orders recently.

The partners in today's dining party were all received by Leila, and she was able to handle them. That's reason why Mr. Lu took her along. Don't think too much."

"Is this absolutely true?" Autumn was confused and frowned, as she felt things were not that simple. They could not be so black and white especially with Leila involved.

"It's true. You really don't have to worry about it." David said in a soft tone, "How about... I drive you home now? it is quite late. Mr. Lu could be late tonight, as a few days back he left a dozen partners without saying a word after learning that you were sick. Leila stayed here all night working and finally the partners chose not to leave the company. So Mr. Lu is going to apologize and set things right."

"No, but thank you for the offer." Autumn was so happy to hear that Charles left the partners immediately and ran to the hospital to see her. Maybe... she was really too suspicious over nothing.

"I drove myself here, so I'll go home by myself." Autumn handed the food she packed over to David and said, "It's the food I brought for you. Have a good meal!"

"Thank you so very much, Mrs. Lu." David smiled and said, as he worked overtime with Alice in the company until now and would love to share the meal with her. They just felt hungry so they grabbed a table in the cafeteria as they began to eat the food Autumn brought them. Alice said, "Although Mrs. Lu left the company by the time I joined, I really feel that... Mr. Lu is so lucky to have married such a beautiful and composed woman like Mrs. Lu."

"Yes, he is." David sighed and went on, "Mrs.Lu has always been incredibly nice, and she treated us like family while she was still working here. It seems impossible to behave so humbly had it been any one else."

"David..." Alice meditated for a moment and then said anyway, "It's not surprising that Mrs. Lu overthinks so much. As a bystander, even I think that the relationship between Mr. Lu and Leila is not that simple as it may appear on the surface. I mean, they go in and out together every day. Rumors are already doing rounds in the company."

"That is utter bullshit." David said coldly, "Mr. Lu only cares about Mrs. Lu. How could he possibly share an inappropriate relation with Leila?"

"You have no idea about that." Alice frowned. "Leila has always been making excuses to take the private elevator with Mr. Lu these days, and they also engaged in social activities together. Anyway, it's spreading downstairs now. But we are in the secretarial office and too close to Mr. Lu, so the rumor mill has not reached us."

Alice frowned and said, "We know they go out for work, but people who don't know... would immediately assume they are having an affair."

"Enough, we should not... even have such inappropriate talk about the president.

Don't say that in front of me again, and especially be careful not to be caught by Mr. Lu having such a lewd conversation." David frowned tightly. Alice was not the kind of person who liked to gossip. She had always engrossed in doing her job perfectly since she got in Shining Company's secretarial office, and she was not willing to interfere in other's business.

David could see that Alice was much more capable than Leila at work, but she would just not like to get in all this.

But what was wrong with her today? Why would she start gossiping about trivial matters that do not concern her?

"David..." Alice frowned. "I would not have said that usually and I'm sorry to have said it in the first place."

The bigger the company is, the more conflicts there would be. Alice knew that apart from doing her own job well, she shouldn't meddle in other people's business. That was why she could see it clearly, the rumors were spread from the secretary office. Except for her and David, only Leila would do that herself.

Leila had exhausted all efforts to get close to Charles, and ultimately spread the rumor herself. What a devious woman she was!

Alice could not bear to see Leila to do that. "David, I'm not gossiping with you, it's just that... the rumors started from the secretary office. You should know what that means."

David frowned. Of course, he knew what that meant. He had already warned Leila, but she was still incorrigible, that's why it happened.

Alice looked at David who was sitting across her, and she said, "Mrs. Lu is such a good person. We should help her as much as we can. If Leila ever gets a hold of that position, do you think... we would still be here?"

David did not say anything, but he knew that if Leila got in that position, she would definitely not let him go.

"David, you have been following everything after all, and Mr. Lu would listen to you, so I think... you should express all of this to Mr. Lu." After Alice finished speaking, David nodded and said, "Well, I understand. I will... find a chance to talk to Mr. Lu about this pressing matter."

After hearing David said that, Alice embraced silence. After all, what she should do and what she wanted to do had been done.

Meanwhile, in Royal Hotel, Charles and Leila were negotiating with one of the companies. The reason he took Leila there was because she was familiar with these partners. And she knew how to communicate with them, and another reason was that... Leila was a girl, a beautiful one at that.

Although he hated to admit it, beautiful girls did hold some advantages while dealing with business.

Charles was bond to got the company's order, that's why he was so nervous and even attended the party by himself.

Mr. Xu sat beside Charles; the businessman always preferred to talk about business at the wine table. If they talked happily, no, actually drank happily, then the business was a done deal.
