&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Realizing that perhaps he was walking fast, Marley Hughes intentionally slowed down his pace to wait
for Sylvie McCarthy's pace. Sylvie felt him slowing down his pace and was slightly puzzled, just
puzzled. What was wrong with Marley? Did he have any problem?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;There was no much excitement on her face, but rather a kind of edgy look; she wasn't sure of what was
going on, everything seemed derailed, and this feeling of derailment made her feel scared and
inexplicably palpitated.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her eyebrows furrowed, her face changed repeatedly, and her lips couldn't help but pout; it was so
cute. This scene coincidently fell on Marley's gaze as he turned his back; his thin lips couldn't help but
induce a funny curve.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was walking fast, and at the corner, Marley suddenly turned around, and she was caught off guard
and bumped into his chest. ‘Ugh! My nose hurts!’
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley reached out to hold her shoulder; she raised her face in a panic and grinned in pain, but her
eyes met his eyes as deep as the sea, and when she touched that handsome face, her movements
froze, and her eyes slightly widened!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Because she saw the smile in his eyes, yes, it was a smile!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;No more than 5 seconds after their gaze met, she looked away from him.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She didn't have time to admire the man in front of her, this is the finance department, people come and
go, and maybe someone will come soon.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Sylvie, relax, although I'm quite demanding of you! I'm not a tiger!" he spoke.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh! Yes!" she could only nod in a panicked manner.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;A rare smile surfaced on Marley's perfect face, "Hold your chest up, don't look beaten, be as imposing
as you should be, you are not only my secretary, but also my wife!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After saying this, he reached out and helped her straighten her clothes before releasing her and turning
around to continue walking down the corridor.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;And Sylvie's gaze filled with suspicion and incomprehension, still looking at the tall figure in front, with a
trace of confusion in her gaze, but fleetingly, she didn't have time to think more; she needed to hurry
into work.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;At Hughes's finance department, there were dozens of staff.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Walking through the corridor and entering the finance department, Marley's sudden arrival brought on
the entire finance department a layer of cold air. An initially slightly relaxed office atmosphere suddenly
turned out, leaving the people in a stunned state.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The cold air was somewhat firm in the large compartment, and more than a dozen men and women
lost their voices for a moment.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Everyone was amazed; why the president's sudden raided inspection?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;In reaction, everyone stood up in unison and respectfully shouted, "Good day, president!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley faintly raised his eyebrows and said in a deep voice, "Everyone has worked hard, no need to be
formal. I hope that the next time I come, everyone will be busy with their work, and not even notice my
arrival! Hughes does not like double-minded employees, and I hope that during office hours, everyone
devotes 100% energy to work! Of course, when it is resting time, I also hope that everyone can rest
100%, and then continue working hard, and from now on, strive not to work overtime!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Yes!" everyone now relaxed a little bit but was still very cautious.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie wondered in her heart if this Marley Hughes had some unique character that made everyone
who met him scared. She followed behind him, and everyone still gave her another meaningful glance,
even though they were pretty afraid of Marley.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;At this time, a middle-aged man quickly greeted him from an office. Sylvie knew he was the finance
department manager, and he looked a bit trembling seeing Marley himself paying a visit to the finance
department. "President, why the sudden visit? If something is wrong, I can come upstairs and report to
you!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley didn't think so and just said, "Manager Lee, give me the report that I informed you yesterday,
the financial statement of the last quarter is also ready, right? Prepare it together as well; I'll take it
later!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Yes! Yes! I'll prepare it right away!" Manager Lee immediately said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Everyone, get busy with your work!" Marley said in a deep voice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Everyone froze for a moment, then suddenly recovered from the shock and hurriedly began to work.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Although all were trembling, Sylvie still noticed that the female staff flew to put away all the messy
things on their desks quietly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Some of the female staff seemed to be unable to conceal their excitement, and although all of them
were scared, they still could not help but steal a look at Marley.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley took Sylvie directly into Manager Lee's office, who hastily asked Marley to sit. The president
came to his office himself; he was suddenly excited and frightened at the same time, "Please sit down,
president! Secretary Sylvie, please have a seat!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley sat on the sofa, casually crossed his legs; Sylvie stood next to him but did not dare to sit.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Manager Lee sorted out the report and put it on the desk.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Manager Lee, I want the revenue analysis of the already completed big project, as well as the
procurement and account analysis of the previous preparatory department. Have you made it?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Manager Lee smiled with a trace of difficulty on his face, but he said immediately, "Yes, President!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"What?" Marley noticed his expression and immediately raised his eyebrows.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"President!" Manager Lee's face still showed some difficulty!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Say!" Marley said in a deep voice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I found a problem with the purchase!" Manager Lee was a little reluctant, but he still voiced his doubts.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"What kind of problem?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"They made false accounts!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Was it before or after I came back?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"It was before, it stopped after you came back, and there was no more problem." Manager Lee said
matter-of-factly, "It's just that the previous deficit is a little bit big!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"How much?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"The amount is huge!" Manager Lee handed over the accounts.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley took it, swept a glance, slightly narrowed his eyes, pondered for a long time, "Don't say anything
about this, let this matter stuck here with you, do not tell anyone! Understand?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Understood!" Manager Li nodded his head.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Secretary Sylvie, take the things we want, and let's go!" Marley stood up.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Manager Lee handed over the document to Sylvie. She took it, held it, and then followed Marley out of
Manager Lee's office.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;As expected, there was no more movement outside. Everyone was seriously working, and even if the
staff workers wanted to look at him, they only took a sneak peek. Sylvie can't help but think it was funny
and meaningless because none of them worked hard; scolding them and not scolding them didn't make
any difference. Ah! It was all just superficial.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Following Marley, she carried a pile of documents and walked towards the elevator.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;However, instead of going upstairs, Marley pressed the button to go to the first floor.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"We're not going upstairs?" Sylvie asked in surprise.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley's face was calm and quiet, and he just gave a hmm.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie wanted to ask where they were going, but once she saw his face, she closed her mouth again.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley suddenly took out a cigarette, then lit it, and started to smoke.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie was slightly surprised. She turned her eyes on him, thinking of the conversation she just heard a
while ago. He wasn't annoyed about that purchase, right? He was smoking in the elevator! Looking at
him like this, the side of the perfect male face, exhaling a faint smoke ring, the deep dark gaze was so
cold that it was difficult for another person to get close to, he was back to being cold as ice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The elevator was almost on the first floor, Marley left hand holding a cigarette, said the words in a deep
voice, "Let's go!"&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Yes!" Sylvie followed him with the documents in her arms, and it wasn't until he got into his car that
she realized he was taking himself out, but where to?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When the car pulled up to a jewelry store, she was even more stunned!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"President? Are we here to work?" Sylvie couldn't help but ask.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley pulled the papers out of her hand and put them on the back seat, "Personal business, not
work!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Private business?" Sylvie was even more puzzled.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"We skipped work, and this one hour is private!" Marley raised his eyebrows, "Get down!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He had already gotten off by the time he finished saying that.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie was stunned and just had to follow suit.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He had already entered the jewelry store with great strides, and Sylvie was getting more and more
confused about this man. He was simply on a whim, unpredictable, really difficult to serve.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When he entered the door, he reached out and took her hand naturally, and she almost fell.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Welcome!" As soon as she entered, the store assistant immediately gave a polite and flamboyant
welcome speech.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie saw that almost all the women had their eyes on Marley.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Someone whispered again and couldn't help but exclaim, "Wow! So handsome! Who is he?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"A handsome and stylish man!"&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Like a sculpture!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"..."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley did not panic, holding Sylvie's hand to the jade jewelry counter. Sylvie looked up at him in panic.
Her heart kept beating. She didn't know what he was going to do.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley's eyes calmly swept over the love-infatuated salesgirls in the shop; with his eyes deep and his
smile charming, he said in a deep voice, "Miss, please take out this jade bracelet."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh! Yes! Sir has a good eye!" One of the female clerks immediately reacted with a start and hurriedly
started doing business, "Sir, this is the most expensive blood jade bracelet we have here; you're so
smart! You could tell at a glance that this is not an ordinary product!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"What are you going to do?" Sylvie asked Marley in dismay.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He couldn't be buying her a bracelet, could he?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Suddenly, his eyes turned to Sylvie, and after the clerk brought out a delicate blood jade bracelet with
an uncountable number of zeros behind it, Marley asked the clerk. "Can I try it on?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh! Of course!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley took out that bracelet by himself and helped Sylvie put it on.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Legend has it that blood jade is a kind of red jade produced in the snowy plateau of Tibet, commonly
known as plateau blood jade, named because of its crimson color. This jade is very expensive and
rarely seen on the market.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie put on the warm, red jade bracelet as Marley held up her hand. When the light entered the
transparent and finely textured blood jade, it reflected beautifully, making one feel unspeakably&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;crystalline and translucent.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Then, Marley pointed to an emerald bracelet inside the counter and said in a deep voice, "Take this one
out too! Uh! And this one, this one!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He pointed out four at a time, jadeite, lanolin white jade, and Hetian jade.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The shop assistant took all of them out, and Marley said in a deep voice, "I want the four of them, wrap
them up!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"No!" Sylvie shook her head.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley was stunned. "Why don't you want them? You don't want the ones I gave you, but you accept
from others?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I thought you don't have money?" she asked in return.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley's face became embarrassed, and he said to the clerk, "Call your boss out!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh!" The clerk was dumbfounded and immediately nodded his head, looking for someone to find the
boss.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Not long after, a young man with a joyful face came out, looking at Marley and Sylvie, smiling evilly,
"What brings you here?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley looked at him, "I want all these four! I will owe you. I will give it to you next week! Give me the
wholesale price!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Marley, that's good of you! How dare you buy them without money?" The man laughed as he signaled
the clerk to wrap them up.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Cut the crap; I'll tear your store down if you talk too much!" Marley threw him a sentence, grabbed the
bag on the counter, and dragged Sylvie with the other hand, and left.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Marley, don't you want to introduce me? I also want to meet your wife!"&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;
