Prev Chapter Next Chapter
&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie Mccarthy's stiff body relaxed momentarily, although her wound was still painful, she felt much
better. She lay on the sofa, breathed deeply, and said, "Ryan, I'm a useless person, I can't stand it even
though it is just a small wound."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"You didn't cry when you got hurt and now you're crying?" Ryan Babel helped her to apply a plaster.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Yup, it didn't hurt when I got hurt, but the disinfection did! "Sylvie wiped away her tears at the corners
of her eyes as she cried because of the pain.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Still pain?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The alcohol dried, her pain was gone, she shook her head. "Thank you."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan was relieved, "Hey, you're too polite again!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie huddled herself and said in a low voice, "I forgot."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan found that Sylvie seldom acted coyly and now she was acting coyly, he laughed in his beard. He
pretended to be serious. "If next time you forget again, I'm going to beat you!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I won't! "Sylvie was talking while looking for her bag, she recalled that she shut down her phone for a
whole afternoon as she was disgruntled. It was not rational.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Then she reached out to take her bag from the sofa and turned on her phone.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was anxious, she knew that she was capricious this afternoon. She hung up on Marley Hughes
and also shut down her phone irresponsibly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was not impartial in separating private and public affairs, she was excessively emotional
thoroughly. This was too much but when she recalled the matter that happened this morning, she was&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;still dispirited, and a bit angry.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After tidying up, Ryan went to his room and found a pair of clean socks. "Sylvie, these are my socks,
haven't used before. You can wear them first! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Come on, your socks are so big, how can I wear them?" His shoe size was at least 10, hers was just
6. How to wear these socks? Moreover, she was wearing small leather shoes, it was ugly to wear a pair
of black socks!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"You don't care only about the look! You wear them first, they're clean. When you're back home, apply
alcohol when you take a shower. Don't let it be infected!" He was nagging like an old maidservant,
reminded her again and again.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Okay! Sure! Ryan, I will wear them!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Good! "Ryan helped her to wear the socks, he felt a bit tired. "I got the flu, be careful with me. There is
a wound on your leg, all the red blood cells go around your wound, maybe your immunity will decrease,
don't infect you with my flu!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Not likely! "Sylvie laughed." You quickly go to take medicine!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She opened her bag and took out her phone, she saw the USB drive inside her bag. She had two USB
drives, the color of the USB drives was the same, her brain was in buzz, something crossed through
her mind. Was the USB drive she had given to Aila the wrong one? She
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;completely took the wrong USB drive?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Dumbfoundedly, Sylvie was startled, immediately turned on her phone, there was only a message on
her phone, it was sent by Marley. "Sylvie, get back as soon as possible. How dare you stay out all
night! I'm really angry! "&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She looked at her phone, dumbfoundedly. "Ryan, borrow me your laptop for a while!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Go to the study room! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie practically ran into the study room, despite her wound, she was practically running tremblingly
into the study room. She opened the laptop, when the data in the USB drive was opened, she saw
what she prepared this morning.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Oh my God!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;How could she make a stupid mistake?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She felt that her face was burning with embarrassment. It turned out that she was mistaken and she
was still angry with that, she was emotional too. She had clearly said that she would be fair in
separating private and public affairs before but she could not do that.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After turning off the laptop, she was sitting still, could not calm down for a long time.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;No!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She should not shirk her responsibility!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie took the USB drive and went out immediately.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She saw that Ryan was taking medicine, turned his head, and looked at her confusingly. She asked
softly, "Ryan, Am I too irresponsible with my work?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan raised his eyebrows. "What's wrong? "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I didn't do the work well myself, couldn't blame others, however, I was still emotional! What happened
today is my fault! "Sylvie said in a low voice, she was regretful.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan was a bit surprised, looked at her, and chuckled, "You can realize your mistakes, it indicates that
you're not that bad. It's never too late to mend. Just tell me, what has happened?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After listening to his words, "Nothing, I know what to do now. Thank you, Ryan! I must go back
immediately, as for that project, I'll go through the information, tomorrow I'll give you answer. You have
to take care of yourself, don't get sick again!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I see you off! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"No need! "Sylvie shook her head.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Are you planning to stay at Sunshine Residential Area tonight?" From the words that she said just
now, he knew that she would go back to Marley's place tonight, there were some complicated
expressions on his face. "I send you back!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh! No need! I can get a taxi, you can't go out anymore, go to bed early!" Sylvie finished talking, ran to
the doorway, looked at the socks that were bigger than her feet, she curled up, stepped them under her
feet, and wore the shoes. "Ryan, goodbye!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Be careful, straight away take a taxi to go back!" Ryan said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Um! "When the door opened, Sylvie saw Connie Griffiths who was standing at the doorway and was
ready to press the doorbell, and seeing Connie Griffiths stand at the doorway, Sylvie was stunned at
first, then she said with a smile, "Miss Griffiths, you've come? "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Mrs. Hughes?" Connie Griffiths was a bit surprised.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I have to go, Ryan is having flu, please take care of him. I have something to do, have to leave now!
"She was talking while giving way to let Connie Griffiths enter the door, then turned back to give Ryan a
gesture and left speedily.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Connie Griffiths looked at her, she smiled, entered the door. "Ryan, why are you having flu? "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"It's okay! "Ryan shook his head. "Why do you come?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I cannot come?" Connie Griffiths blinked her eyes, looked at Ryan.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan sat on the sofa. "Connie, I won't go back to Well Group, you don’t need to say anymore, I enjoy
my life now."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"But Well Group is yours, you can't leave it to me irresponsibly!" Connie Griffiths said, she took it for
granted. "Moreover, I'm getting old, if I continue working busily like this, I'll ruin myself. I want to have
time for dating! I don't want to be a workaholic! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan laughed, looked at her, and made a joke. "Connie, if you're not married at thirty-two and I'm not
married yet, then we can make do together forever! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"But you don't love me! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"You're not too! "Ryan laughed and asked her rhetorically.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Connie Griffiths listened to his words, her eyes flickered, blinked her smart eyes, she did not answer
his question but asked him, "Who said I don't love you? But it seems like the one you love is that Mrs.
Hughes?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan listened to her words, his eyes looked serious, turned his sight to other places. "Connie, don't
make fun of me, I go to rest, you go back and tell the old master, I won't be back! I want to be an
architect!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Ryan, as a human, we not only have a dream but also have responsibility!" Connie Griffiths said in a
low voice, she looked extremely serious.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ryan did not say anything, his body was stiff, walked in the direction of the bedroom.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Connie Griffiths sighed, there was indescribable melancholy in her eyes.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie went out from the residential area, she looked at the time – it was just 7 o'clock – and she
wondered whether Marley had dinner or not. She bought some ingredients from the supermarket at the
gateway, carrying several packs in different sizes. She didn't know that if she went back to apologize
now, whether he would be angrier. However, if it was wrong, then she must admit it, if she didn't, she
was going to make another mistake. It would be more embarrassing. After taking a taxi, she rushed to
the villa at the seaside.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Ten more minutes later, she got off the car, carrying all the packs, entered the gate.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her feet still hurt, Ryan's socks were too big, her feet stepped on parts of the socks, felt a bit painful.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She walked slowly, carried things with her hands, walked halfway, and planned to take a rest. Walking
from the gate into the house needed some time, at that time unexpectedly, her hands suddenly felt
lighter, packs of bags were carried by someone.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She likely bumped into that person, she smelled a familiar smell of tobacco, looked up, and saw Marley
with a gloomy face.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Ma... Marley? "She said in a low voice, unconsciously lowered her eyes.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He stayed at home unexpectedly, moreover, he was in the courtyard.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie took a deep breath, her head was hanging, she looked like a child who did something wrong.
"And, I'm sorry! It's my fault this afternoon. I was negligent on my part during work, I have made a
stupid mistake. I took the wrong USB drive. It's my fault to make mistake, I'm wrong, I accept the
punishment!"&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley did not answer her, his body was stiff, his face looked glum. His sharp eyes fixed her with a
piercing stare, looked at her coldly, there were some complicated emotions in his eyes. After a long
time, he looked away, seemingly sighed, "Go in first."
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He carried the things and walked to the front.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was dumbfounded and confused, had no choice but to follow him at the back.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He seemingly felt that she was walking weirdly, turned around to look at her, and asked in a low voice,
"What's wrong with your feet?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Uh! "Sylvie froze, likely bumped into him again. "No, nothing!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley frowned, threw the bags on his other hand, went towards her, held her hand, and looked down.
"What happened?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Nothing, let's go in! "She was dumbfounded, she had made a mistake this afternoon. Why didn't he
scold her fiercely?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He reached out to hold her waist, practically half-embraced her while entering the door. Once they
entered the door, he put the bags on the shelf at the doorway, straight away picked her up, came to the
sofa.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When he took off her shoes and saw the men's socks on her feet, he was stunned in a daze, swiftly
frowned, glared at her. "Whose socks are these? "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She busily wanted to explain, "Marley... "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I don't want to listen to any explanation!" Ryan shouted fiercely, a pair of eyes looked frighteningly
cold. "Sylvie Mccarthy, if you don't have the most basic professional ethics, you should straight away&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;pack your things and go home! Don't work in any company and don't even want to be a qualified
inheritor! Now you're not only my secretary, my employee, you're also my wife! "
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I'm sorry! "Sylvie unconsciously clenched her hands, suddenly fell silent.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley raised his eyebrows and shouted, "Do you insist to push my buttons?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Being scolded by him, Sylvie difficultly said, "I do not…"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Do you insist to be that close with Ryan? Wear his socks? " He sounded extremely unhappy.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"This... "Sylvie's small fair face blushed, hurriedly and anxiously explained, "Marley, it's not like that,
Ryan and I are really good friends! I always treat him as my brother, my family!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Perhaps he is not thinking like that!" Marley shouted fiercely, his displeasure burst out thoroughly.
"There are no 'just friends' between men and women, you treat him as a friend. Do you know what he
is thinking? A man treats you that good for no reason if he doesn't have feelings for you, will he waste
his time to take care of you?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I..."After hearing he said so, Sylvie bit her lips, she did not know what to say herself. Was it? Was it
like what Marley had said? Did Ryan have feelings for her?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But she had never thought of these things before! It was probably not.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Seeing that she frowned and tangled, Marley squinted his eyes, glared at her confused and tangled
face, asked coldly, "What's wrong with your feet?"&#lt;/p&#gt;
