(The meeting)

David was surprised and scratched his head out of embarrassment. He replied to Charles, "Of course, I courted her! You know, she was very cold with me back then, but I still managed to get her!" David answered with pride.     

Charles thought for a moment and said, "It seems that you are very good at courting girls."    

"I can't say that I am an expert at courting girls,"  David said. Then he added with a smile, "But I know clearly what girls like."    

"Very well then, David. From now on, you will be my teacher. Please help me win back my wife's heart." Charles patted David's shoulder as he gave him the unexpected assignment.    

 David was petrified because he immediately fathomed that the assignment was impossible to accomplish.   

"Well, Mr. Lu. Actually, Alice..." David scrambled to find an excuse to refuse the task. He regretted what he had bragged about that very moment.     

He had mingled with Autumn for some time before. She was like a pure goddess in his mind. So his tricks to attract the usual girls wouldn't work on her.    

 Charles interrupted his thoughts and uttered seriously, "That's an order David!" He didn't give David a single chance to reason out with him.     

David felt cornered and then agreed reluctantly.     

"Hey, Dad!" Charlie stood up from his seat when he saw Charles return. Charles approached his son and said, "Charlie, I need to stay here and work tonight. I have lots of things to finish. I'll tell David to escort you home so you don't have to stay up and wait for me, okay son?"    

"But Dad..." Charlie frowned. He still wanted to be with his father's company. But based on how his father uttered the words, it was clear that he wouldn't agree. So he nodded his head and said, "Fine Dad. I'm leaving now."  

When he was about to leave the office with David, he turned around and said to Charles, "Dad, tomorrow... Can I visit Shirley and play with her?"  

  "Of course you can!" Charles nodded approvingly. But he was worried that Sheryl would refuse Charlie because of him.    

 Upon hearing Charles' answer, Charlie left joyfully.     

In BM Corporation    

It was the very first meeting after the models had signed their contracts with the corporation. So, both Sheryl and Sue dared not be late for it. They came earlier by a few minutes and waited at the lounge outside the meeting room.  

 Sooner than expected, George and Holley arrived. While the other models immediately gave way to both, Holley smiled at Sheryl as she passed by her.  

   Somehow, Sheryl surmised that the smile was very familiar. Deep inside, she knew that she had seen that smile before but could not instantly recall where.   

"What's the matter, Sher?" Sue asked her. Everybody had followed George and Holley inside the meeting room but Sheryl remained motionless. Sue was very puzzled by Sheryl's facial expression.     

"I'm... I'm fine,"  Sheryl answered as if she just daydreamed. Sheryl finally regained herself. She was still uneasy but pretended to be calm.    

 She entered the meeting room together with Sue. Both sat down side by side at the corner of the room. However, Holley waved her right hand towards her and called, "Come here, Sher."    

George was seated at the middle of the conference table while Holley was at his left side. The seat she pointed for Sheryl was at George's right.     

A young model already occupied the chair that Holley motioned to Sheryl. It was the girl who had a conflict with Sheryl during the fashion show.     

Holley said to the girl with a smile, "Excuse me, honey, can you exchange your seat with Sheryl?"  

Holley would be the boss' wife soon enough, so the girl dared not say no to her. But she gave a very angry look at Sheryl. When she vacated the chair, she stared at Sheryl, very annoyed. If stare could kill, then Sheryl would be dead at that time.     

Sheryl hesitated for a moment. She couldn't refuse Holley's order with so many people present in the room, so she walked and sat on the seat reluctantly.   

  Holley began talking with Sheryl in a friendly tone. Except for Sue, every other model in the room was jealous of Sheryl.     

The other models had been envious of Sheryl when they learned that her contract conditions were better than theirs. They got more insecure when they saw the boss' wife think highly of her.     George looked around and cleared his throat.     

"Everybody..." He glanced at all the models and continued, "I'm so happy to have this chance to be here with all of you. From now on, we'll be colleagues." 

 George gave a smile and added, "The reason why we have this meeting is quite simple. Listen, I just want to clarify and announce something to everybody here."    
He paused for a while and added, "Firstly, although you are now members of BM Corporation, you models belong to a separate department. Your department is going to be managed by no other than Holley Ye. On my behalf, Holley will handle all the issues and concerns in your department. I hope that you will extend to her the same respect and cooperation that you give me."    

George looked at Holley proudly and then with a wide smile said, "Okay, congratulations Holley! Now, let me give the chair to your new manager. She will announce and let you know the details about your work here at BM Corporation."    

With warm applause, Holley stood up with a big smile and started her speech, "There are two reasons why BM Corporation has created this department. It's a fact and for its benefit that BM Corporation is closely related with fabulous, trendy and high fashion dresses. It holds several highly acclaimed runway shows every year, so it's necessary for our company to have our own group of models."  

Holley paused for a moment and then continued, "But our department is separate with the other departments of the corporation. I should say that apart from the shows being held by our company, you would also take part in other shows of other companies. Aside from your fixed salary, you can also earn extra money from those shows. But the income that you will earn from those shows should be divided and shared with our company. My colleagues, you don't have to worry that you won't earn enough money. I promise that you would earn more and get rich as long as you work hard."    

Holley's words surprised everyone in the meeting room. They never expected that they would be allowed to work with other companies from time to time.     

Sheryl also arched her brow in response to Holley's announcement.
