Episode 9

(An old acquaintance)

"See a friend? Who is it?" When George asked. George was surprised to know that Holley meant to meet someone because as far as he knew, Holley didn't know anyone here. Holley had told him before that she didn't have any acquaintances here.    

 "Don't ask too much. I won't take long." Instead of answering George's questions, Holley hurriedly kissed him on the cheek and said her last words, "I'll be back soon."    

Actually, Holley was in a hurry because Ferry told her that Leila was waiting for her. It had been three years since she last heard about her. She didn't have any idea if everything had been well for Leila these past years.    

 Holley once considered Leila as an enemy. But now that they had the same goal, she wanted to treat her as a friend.     Just like what the saying goes, 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.' Now they would be working together against a common enemy.   

Now that Charlie was taken by Charles, Leila's chance of getting together with Charles became impossible. She felt bad that all her efforts to be a single mother these past years had just gone to waste.     
That was why she called Ferry to asked for help. She told him that Autumn was still alive.     

Ferry was exasperated when he heard the news. But he tried his best to stay calm. He instructed Leila to go to a certain place and wait for someone who used to be her acquaintance.     

Leila thought hard but she couldn't really figure out who Ferry was referring to. She couldn't tell who this old acquaintance really was.     

Leila had been waiting for half an hour now but no one arrived yet. She got impatient so she finished the cup of coffee she ordered and prepared to leave. However, before she could stand up, a beautiful woman suddenly sat down beside her. She was wearing a pair of sunglasses and looked a little restless.   

Leila stared at the woman trying to analyze her. She wanted to recall if she had ever seen this woman before. But no matter how hard she thought, she couldn't really remember her so she asked in an unfriendly tone, "Excuse me, you may have gotten the wrong table."    "I came here for you,"  the woman replied firmly. Holley removed her sunglasses and looked into Leila's eyes. "You look much older than before."   

 Holley stared at Leila intently while the latter also did the same. After a while, Leila shook her head and frowned. She said, "I'm sorry. I really don't know you. You are?"   

 "Leila, you are still so blind and silly! I find it so ridiculous for a woman like you to dream of marrying Charles!" Holley didn't care if Leila couldn't recognize her.

 She just said what she had been wanting to say. Holley's voice was stinging satire.     

Suddenly, Leila remembered someone who had the same expression and tone as this woman beside her. Leila couldn't help but shudder upon recognizing her. "Y... Yvonne?" she stuttered. She couldn't believe her eyes.   

"Yes, it's me!" Holley admitted frankly. Since she already considered Leila as an ally, there was no need to hide from her anymore. "Nice to see you again, Leila,"  she said.     

"Oh! You're really Yvonne!" Leila said, her eyes bulging in surprise. Then she added, "It has been three... no... four... It had been four years that we haven't seen each other. How have you been? Why do you look so different?" Leila asked a lot of questions. She was still overwhelmed with shock.     

Leila sat closer to Holley and whispered, "Did you have a plastic surgery?" When Holley was nonreactive, Leila continued, "You look more beautiful than before." 

She couldn't help scanning the woman's face beside her. "However, there are still some signs of surgery left on your face. They don't look natural."    

Leila looked at Holley's face in awe. She asked Holley more, "The plastic surgery must have cost a lot of money, right?"    Leila stretched out her arm and was about to touch Holley's face but she was stopped by her midway. Holley loathed, "Get your dirty hand off me!"  

Leila felt a little embarrassed. With a hurt voice, she asked, "We used to be friends, remember? Isn't it inappropriate for you to speak to me that way?"   

 Leila's voice was full of conviction. "We're on the same boat now. We're on the same situation. Should you really despise me?"   

 Holley gave Leila a cold smile. "I think you have forgotten who you are. Don't forget that you are just my partner. You should only follow my orders. You have no right to express your opinions or ask questions. Just mind your own business. Don't get yourself involved in things not related to you. Do you understand?"    

"What nonsense are you talking about?" Leila suddenly stood up. She felt furious after hearing what Holley said. "As I have said, we're on the same boat and we have the same goal. So why should I just listen to you? Who do you think you are?" They were rivals back then so it was just normal for them to have resentments toward each other.     

But how could they work together if they still acted like this?   

Holley sneered and said to Leila, "You can call that man who told you to come here if you don't believe me."    

Leila hesitated for a moment but eventually called Ferry. Unfortunately, Ferry just confirmed what Holley told her. She felt so bad. "Why should I listen to her?" What Ferry replied seemed to be unacceptable because she firmly shouted, "No! I couldn't do it!"    

What she needed was someone to help her, not a boss to only give her orders.  

   "Leila!" Ferry rebuked her. "You need her help to achieve your goal. Think it over. I have already given you the easiest way. But if you want to waste your time and energy looking for other ways, go ahead!"    

Ferry paused for a moment and continued, "If you want Yvonne to help you, you must listen to her. Take her orders as mine. If I come to know that you make your own move, I wouldn't let you go!"    

"Oh, I have forgotten something,"  Ferry added. "You have lost Charlie now. That means, you have also lost your chance to be with Charles. That must have made your goal more difficult to achieve. So, why not give it a try if you could make it without my help."  

Leila was convinced by Ferry's words. She frowned while Ferry was still trying to persuade her, "Everything would change if you cooperate with Yvonne. She's the future wife of BM Corporation CEO. She has the wealth and the position that you need. And even Autumn is working for her so it would be easy for her to help you achieve your desire."    

Ferry left some time for Leila to decide. A little while later, Leila agreed and said, "Fine! I would listen to her. I'd do anything for her as long as she could help me."   

 "Okay, that's it!" Ferry said with satisfaction. Then he urged her, "Now, go back and talk to her. It's your time to make a plan together."
