(Celebratory Dinner)

Andy stared at Autumn seeking a positive response. "Moreover, the launch event was a success. If Father and Mother find out that I didn't give you any bonus, they will scold me quite harshly. So please just honor me to do something for you simply based on your merits."

Autumn blushed pink. After all, Paula did go out her way to ensure the launch event was ruined. She said awkwardly, "Uncle Andy, Paula had a problem with me. She stole all the merchandise as an act of revenge."

"Don't worry about that. You saved the day and that is all that matters now," Andy comforted her, "Once you informed me about the missing clothes, I immediately called the police.

By now, I am sure the police must have arrived and will take her away for further questioning after conducting preliminary investigation."

Andy thought to himself, 'A person as foul as Paula deserves what she gets. Autumn used to tolerate her while being generous towards her. But her kindness was repaid with ingratitude. So this time, I swear not to let her go unpunished.'

Autumn was the reason Paula became so notorious. Paula would seize every chance to embarrass Autumn and put her down. She knew that today was Giant Promise Company's launch event. After managing to sneak backstage without anyone noticing, she stole the samples from the mannequins which Giant Promise Company delicately prepared and hid them in a corner. She hoped that Autumn would land in trouble.

She was so confident that she would not get caught. Instead of leaving at once, she kept lurking on the premise to witness Autumn's despair. If the launch event turned out to be a failure, it was unlikely for anyone to cooperate with Autumn. To her astonishment, the launch event had turned around and was a complete triumph. What's more, Isla's humble words earned a good reputation for Cloud Advertising Company.

The more Paula thought about it, the angrier she felt. Today's scheme failed, but she would not give up on the pursuit of bringing Autumn down.

She glared at the stage as she was about to leave, when a group of policemen in uniforms blocked her way. Her instinctive reaction was to turn around and run. But a tall police officer lifted her up from the group easily almost like she was a child.

"You…" What are you doing?" Paula asked the policeman with a rather guilty expression all over her face, "Why did you stop me, Officer?"

"Well, for start, why don't you tell me why you were running away?" The policeman queried, "Is your name Paula Pan?"

"Yes," answered Paula in low spirits. She realized she could not escape her fate of getting caught.

The policeman said with scorn as he noticed her expression, "It seems like you already know the reason why we are looking for you. Let's go. Please follow us to the police office."

Isla and Autumn saw Paula getting arrested as they walked out of the greenroom. Autumn sighed, "Why is she always competing against me? I mean what is it that she wants to prove so desperately?"

"Who knows?" Isla responded with a shrug, "Now it's hopefully over. She will bear the punishments of her ill motivated actions. I guess she will be sentenced to more than one year in prison for such a spiteful act."

"It's none of our business," Autumn responded happily. The event ended up successfully with everyone lauding their efforts. Her mood was lifted and she simply did not care even when Paula shot her a glance with intense hatred.

"The event we planned has been successful. Why don't we head out and celebrate this happy moment?" Autumn advised Isla, "What about having hotpot?"

"Great. Wait for a moment. I will call them out," Isla agreed. Other employees were inside winding up everything. She said with a wide smile as she spotted them, "Everyone, can I have your attention please? Dinner is Manager Ye's treat. Please feel free to order anything you like to celebrate our success tonight."

Everyone was happy about the good news because their enduring efforts finally got a reward. When Autumn saw the excited faces, a grin spread slowly across her face.

In an authentic Chongqing hotpot restaurant, tens of people were sitting around a table. Isla said, smiling at Autumn next to her, "Autumn, I won't stand on ceremony."

"Be quick and order away. Stop talking nonsense." Autumn smiled.

Isla too was in good spirits, so she without thinking twice ordered a box of beer. Since Autumn was not interested in drinking, she sat in a corner drinking some hot and soothing tea. Today's event was a big success, which made all employees feel proud and elated.

After going through rounds of drinks, Yoyo was already quite drunk. She gathered her courage as she took a seat beside Autumn and said, "Manager Ye, I have to apologize to you."

"What happened? Why are you apologizing to me?" Autumn asked in surprise. She thought, 'I am under the impression that Yoyo is an honest girl. No matter what she has been asked to do, she always does the work perfectly.

Moreover, she is also easy to get along with. Although I have very little personal contact with her, I know everyone in the company is fond of her. Isla is particularly close to her.'

"I want to come clean about something," Yoyo forced a smile and explained, "Manager Ye, I mistook your disposition. Now I finally realized I was too naive and immature. I shouldn't believe the rumors and assume the worst in you without seeing things for myself."

"Manager Ye, I mistook your disposition. Now I finally realized I was too naive and immature. I shouldn't believe the rumors and assume the worst in you without seeing things for myself."

Autumn knew what Yoyo was referring to. It was true that everyone initially judged Autumn rather harshly. She also knew it, but didn't care much about it. Time reveals a person's heart and intentions. She was confident that her employees would learn about what kind of person she was sooner or later.

So Autumn didn't blame Yoyo. Instead, Autumn patted her shoulder and comforted her, "That's all in the past. Just forget it and move on."

"No, just let me finish what I was saying." Yoyo insisted. She had consumed a lot of wine. On one hand, she was happy about the successful event. On the other hand, she was ashamed to have misunderstood Autumn. The truth was she was good and upright.

Therefore, she took the chance to talk about this frankly while she felt the buzz of alcohol.

She burped loudly and the smell of wine pervaded the private room. There wasn't any disgust on Autumn's face. She poured some water for Yoyo. "Drink some water."

Yoyo continued as she took a sip, "Manager Ye, Paula told us about the details of your act of plagiarism. We believed that. When Mr. Lu bought Cloud Advertising Company for you, we felt sort of jealous. Someone guessed you had an affair with him, or you were Mr. Lu's mistress. We said many bad things about you."

Yoyo added with an awkward smile, "There are two reasons for that. The first reason is that we envied you. The second is we underestimated your ability. Later, you were involved with Sam, which further tarnished your image. Many colleagues wanted to quit, including me. Isla persuaded us not to leave."

Yoyo stared at Autumn and went on her speech, "Isla told me to stay for another month or two till I see the real you. To tell you the truth, I didn't believe her but I stayed because of my respect for her. But a series of things that happened changed our thoughts. You are Mrs. Lu, but you don't pull rank on us.

Besides, Sam's mother came to apologize for her rude behavior and misunderstanding. What's more, without your timely return with the clothes, today's launch event would have fallen through."
