(The dinning party (3)

Upon noticing Mr. Xu's scowling face, Leila grabbed several tissues and tried to clean up his shirts in a hurry as she panicked. "Mr. Xu, I'm so sorry. How about... we head to the rest room? There I will be able to help clean your clothes properly," she suggested in an apologetic tone.

"Fine," Mr. Xu replied, as he got back up.. As soon as they entered the bathroom, Mr. Xu closed the door deliberately. Leila took some tissues from the counter, opened the tap and soaked the tissues.

"I'm really sorry for getting you into such a mess with my clumsy actions," she apologized as she rigorously kept wiping his shirts with tissues.

"It's fine," Mr. Xu responded with a sly yet content smile. Leila's hands lingered around his chest for quite a while, which turned Mr. Xu on.

"Leila," Mr. Xu called out her name, as he grabbed her hand and pressed her against the basin. "You are so beautiful," he continued, as he stared at her with obsessive eyes.

"Am I?" Leila responded calmly, as she smiled at him. "Do you think that I am prettier than your assistant?"

Mr. Xu was shocked as he realized that Leila had found out about their relationship. "How did you know?" he asked, looking confused and curious.

"Her expressions showed how she felt about you very evidently," Leila answered confidently. "When we were in the compartment, you didn't see her expressions. It looked like she was trying to kill me with her furious eyes. I am a woman, so I am sensitive and aware of these matters. I don't think she was so hostile towards me simply because I am more attractive than her. The only explanation for her hostility is you!" she explained as she perched herself on the edge of the basin.

"You are a good observer. There is nothing to hide really. Yes, she is my mistress indeed. But..." Mr. Xu said frankly, as he began to laugh.

"But what?" Leila asked as she continued to smile.

"But I am more interested in you now. How much does Mr. Lu pay you? I will pay double as long as you are willing to come work with me at my company. What do you think of my offer?" Mr. Xu offered as he pulled her into a tight embrace.

"Mr. Xu..." Leila said in a sweet tone, as she pulled his collar playfully. "You haven't answered my question yet. Who is more lovely, your secretary or me?"

"You, of course you. There is no doubt about it," Mr. Xu replied without even hesitating for a second. Mr. Xu then pounced on Leila in an attempt to kiss her. All of a sudden, someone kicked the door open. "Leo, dare you to repeat this again?" his assistant shouted, as she strode to him.

"Carol, I can explain this..." Leo said, flustered. Leo immediately panicked at the sight of Carol standing at the door. Leila could not understand why he would fear his assistant like this especially considering what all he said.

"Explain? I first saw you flirting with this woman all night and now this," Carol yelled at him, as she glanced at Leila with disgust and fury. Leila jumped down from the basin, and then smoothed out her clothes. Carol came inside blazing with anger when she saw Leila's gloating expression.

"You're such a bitch. I know that you were trying to covet Leo all night long. I will teach you a lesson and let you know the consequence of seducing someone's beloved," Carol scolded, with an intention to raise her hand to hit Leila who was standing across her.

"Carol, please calm down. This is not what you imagined. It is just a misunderstanding," Leo explained, as he put his hands around her waist in a bid to stop her.

"Leo, if you don't let me go now, I will tell this to my cousin. I'm sure that she will fix you," Carol warned him with an ultimatum. Upon hearing this, Leo withdraw his hands almost immediately.

"Carol, you can't always use your cousin to threaten me. You know her temper. If she finds out about this, she will give me a hard time over nothing. Can you bear the thought of her beating me to death?" he said, with a rather upset look.

Not until now could Leila figure out their real relationship. 'Carol is not only his secretary but his wife's cousin. Two cousins serve one man. It's crazy,' she thought.

"What she does to you is none of my business," Carol snapped back. "Why can't you just change your nature as you always promise you will? And if that was not enough, you hit on such a low woman like her. Are you blind?" she said scornfully totally ignoring the fact that Leila was still standing there.

"Yes, you're right. This is all my fault. Please don't be mad at me any longer," Leo said drawing out a smile, trying to calm her down. "Let's go now. There are so many people staring at us. We should stop embarrassing one another by creating such a debacle," he continued in a persuasive tone.

"I am surprised, you do feel embarrassed and ashamed on some level. You should have been prepared for this the moment you decided to flirt with another woman," Carol replied in contempt. "I'm telling you that I must kick her ass today," she added furiously.

"Bitch, how dare you seduce Leo in such a filthy manner? I am going to disfigure you so that you can't tempt him or any man anymore," Carol said as she pulled her hands in a fist, and dashed towards Leila.

Carol pulled Leila's hair immediately. Leila wasn't a delicate woman who would let others bully her in such a harsh manner. As Carol made the move first, it was safe to strike back in defense. They two then began to fiercely fight with moments. With no intention of stopping they kept attacking one another.

After hearing Carol's warning, Leo didn't dare to move forward to stop them and pull them apart. As they were still in a fight, he had no choice but to approach Charles for help, after all Leila was his secretary. "Mr. Lu, Leila is fighting with my assistant. If you could please help me solve this matter, I will sign an one-year contact with you... no actually, make it a five-year contact," he said to Charles as he pleaded for help.

Charles was stunned, and then agreed to the proposition. Just as he reached the rest room, dozens of people had gathered outside whispering to one another. "Knock it off!" he howled authoritatively, right from the entrance.

Leila froze immediately when she heard Charles' voice call out to them. "Mr. Lu, she struck me first, I only defended myself," she clarified to Charles.

"She is right. I started the fight. So what?" Carol responded, staring at Leila with rage knowing her reasons were legitimate. "You shameless woman. I wouldn't feel guilty even if I beat you to death," she continued cursing at her as she crossed her arms.

"You..." Leila stammered, irritated by her words. She didn't curse back as Charles was around and she wanted to look decent.

"Well, the fight is over. It was just a misunderstanding. Go back to minding your own business," Leo said to the lookers-on. As the crowd dispersed, he walked up to Carol and said, "Well, you have already taught her a lesson that she will definitely not forget for a long time to come. Just let it go. Let's leave here now..."

"I'm not leaving," Carol refused with conviction. "I did nothing wrong. This indecent woman should feel lucky that she is still alive."

"Mr. Xu," Charles began to address him as he looked at Leo with discontent. "I can see that Leila is hurt pretty badly. If you don't leave now, I will call the police. I can't allow my subordinate to be bullied like this even if it means calling off our deal," he warned.

"We're leaving now," Leo returned with a smile. Leo was a man for whom reputation meant a great deal. 'If Charles called the police, I would be a laughingstock in the business circle,' he thought. He grabbed Carol by her hand, and they walked out of the restaurant.

Carol felt much better and relieved when she saw Leila's awkward expression. That's why she went with Leo obediently without uttering a single word.

"Are you fine", charles asked leila as they walk away.
