&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Looking at the food that was left untouched, Sylvie turned her head around and looked at the figure that
was walking towards the door. She ran in small steps hurriedly to keep up with him, “Marley, where are
you going?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Follow me!” He grabbed her hand and pulled her straight to the elevator.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Inside the enclosed elevator, there were only the two of them.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She stood behind him and glanced at Marley carefully. For no reason, her heart started pounding
again, “Where are we going?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Let’s eat out!” He said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Ah?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“From today onwards, we will go out to eat! Don't ever mistreat ourselves again!” His voice sounded
slightly like he was mocking himself.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Marley, maybe Dad has his difficulties and been forced to do so!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Everyone has their own difficulties!” Marley said in an unpleasant tone.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He took her out. They went to a private cuisine restaurant and ordered four dishes, “Eat!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Er!” Actually, Sylvie was not full. When she saw the clean restaurant, she couldn't help but want to eat!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley’s face relaxed a bit, “let’s eat more!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie raised her head suspiciously. He seemed to be treating her much better and gentler now.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Seeing Sylvie look at himself, Marley frowned, “Why don’t you eat?”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Uhm!” Sylvie was stunned for a moment, she found out that she always became speechless in front of
him. So she just lowered her head and whispered, “Are you so angry that you lose your mind? Even
come out to have a meal?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Haha.” Marley laughed, his eyes were also filled with joy. His handsome side face was eye-catching,
he said in a low voice, “Is my life that boring?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie raised her head again and looked at him. He actually smiled. His smile was so beautiful and
joyful. It was totally different with the indifferent look of him just now, “No! You are a good and dedicated
boss. You do your duty always, and the staff are afraid of you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Are you afraid?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Of course I'm afraid!" She lowered her head and did not look at him, “When you get angry, you look
very scary!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her voice was so soft, so soft that it could barely be heard. She lowered her head even more.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley looked at her. His face became gentle because of her childish action. He did not look as cold as
before. He picked up some dishes for her, “They were lazy and lack of discipline before. If I have not
been strict with them from the beginning, they would think that I am weak and think that I am someone
who can easily mess around! Hughes Group became like this today was all because of my father being
too kind! I admit that I treated you badly at first, but I won't be like that in the future!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Why did your father tolerate them?” Sylvie raised her head again, looked at him and frowned, “It
doesn’t make sense, you have already sacrificed a lot, he knew how hard it was for you, why was he
still doing it? After all, they are outsiders, his own son should be the most important and closest to him!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was really confused and couldn't figure it out! She really didn't understand!&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Looking at her innocent face and her confused expression, Marley stood up and leaned on her
following his intuition. He gave her a kiss on the forehead with the table in between.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;This woman worried about him, fought with him side by side, even when he was lonely and wronged, it
was all worth it! Marley thought inside his heart!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie suddenly widened her eyes. She was in daze. Her expression looked innocent like a rabbit.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But her panicked face only made Marley want her even more and the desire became more intense.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His handsome face came closer to her until she could even see his long and dense eyelashes and her
own reflection in his eyes.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her heart was beating fast.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley approached her again, lifted her chin and kissed her lower lip.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Uh—” Sylvie’s face blushed immediately.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Fortunately, they were in a private room. There was no one else. Otherwise, she would be very
embarrassed.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley sat back to his seat and said slowly, “Sylvie, I still have you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His words made Sylvie dizzy, she quickly lowered her head to avoid him!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her heart suddenly throbbed!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He said he still had her! Since when did she in his heart become so important?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;However, she found out that she really liked this sentence!&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But at the same time, she felt a little pain in her heart. His father didn't care about his feelings this time.
He didn't care about how much grievance he had been gone through for Hughes Group. That was not
all, the main point was, where would Hughes Group go in the future? If Ernie really wanted to destroy
Hughes Group, she thought he really had the ability!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Would Marley’s hard work be going in vain? Thinking about this, she slowly looked at Marley’s face.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley was also staring at her. After a while, he said in a hoarse voice, “Eat, after we finished, let’s go
back to fight!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Oh!” She found out that the gaze when he looked at her was full of love. His eyes looked completely
different now than they once were, which were cold and full of hatred!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;In the middle of the meal, Marley’s mobile phone suddenly rang again, interrupting their conversation.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley frowned slightly. Sylvie looked at him. At this moment, Marley already took his phone and
looked at the number on the screen. It was a call from home. He frowned slightly and answered the
call, “Dad!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie had no idea what their conversation was!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley frowned even more, “I got it! I'll think about it.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley hung up the phone, Sylvie couldn’t help but ask, “What's the matter?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley put down his mobile phone and lost his appetite.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Then he lit a cigarette and smoked. He silently looked out of the window, his eyes looked deep and
dark, even when it was sunny outside of the window, he seemed lonely and full of sadness.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie stopped eating too!&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"What's wrong?"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Dad said that my arrangement for Ernie wasn’t right!” Marley laughed at himself in a mocking way, “He
wanted Ernie to take charge of the investment department, which is Tyler’s responsibility!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Hm!" Sylvie frowned again, “Didn’t he say he would put you in charge?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I doubt whether I am his son or Ernie is his son!" Marley’s eyes were deep and he said coldly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The investment department was a key department. About half of Hughes Group’s capital control was
planned by this department. Before the crisis, he asked Tyler to manage it. Now he had secretly
planned some projects but he didn’t expect that his father would let Ernie manage this department. This
department could also be regarded as an important capital source for the company.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie felt very strange too, she frowned and thought for a while, “Let me handle this!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"What do you want to do?" Marley frowned.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"I'll call your father and tell him that McCarthy Group agreed to invest the capital for you only, not for
Ernie! Besides, I’ll tell him not to interfere in company's affairs in the future!” Sylvie said in a deep voice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"No way!” Marley shook his head, “Dad is sick!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"You can't use illness as an excuse!" Sylvie said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Do as he said!" Marley's voice was louder than her, he squinted his eyes, “What is to come will always
come, no one can stop it!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie looked at him and wondered how he could be so filial? The way he was handling the matter
would only bring trouble to himself!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley picked up the chopsticks again, “Eat!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But Sylvie couldn’t eat anymore!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When Marley finished eating, they left the restaurant and returned to the company.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When Marley returned to his office, Sylvie followed him and went into the office. Marley called Aiden in
front of Sylvie, “Dad, if you insist on letting him take over the investment department, it will take three
months. The company has no funds for investment currently. We are still in the deficit stage. In
addition, the restored funds will have to pay back to McCarthy Group, so in a short period of time, the
fund for new investment project is basically zero!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Aiden was silent for a while. In the end, he didn’t say anything and hung up.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After putting down the phone, the veins on Marley’s hands that was holding the phone became
obvious. This was the first time that he had such a big conflict with his father, but he didn't dare to say
anything because his father had a heart disease.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie stood opposite of him. Since he put down the phone, his face seemed gloomy. She acted like a
child who had done something wrong. Standing at the side, she did not dare to take a deep breath and
his face looked cold.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie sighed at the bottom of her heart. This cold, proud and kind-hearted man also had such helpless
and heartbreaking moment. He gave up a lot for his family, but his father created troubles for him again
and again.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Sylvie!" Marley said in low voice.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Yes?” Sylvie immediately came closer to him, “Shall I make you a cup of coffee?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He turned around and stared at her with his deep and dark eyes. He didn't speak for a long time, as if
he was thinking about something. Then he grabbed her, pulled her body into his arms, and said in a&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;hoarse voice, “Let me hug you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie raised her head in surprise because of his words. He was already hugging her, and his chin was
leaning on her shoulder.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She could feel his tensed body, “Marley, it doesn't matter! You still have me. I’ll be with you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;This was the first time she saw him being so fragile, so helpless!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Thank you!” His voice sounded sad but full of gratitude.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Uh! That’s why I said! Why don't you send Sylvie to me? It turns out that you are prioritizing your own
preference than for company’s affairs. My dear cousin, this is not your style! Sooner or later, you'll ruin
the company!” Ernie pushed the door of the president's office to open it and interrupted their intimate
moment together.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley let go of Sylvie and quickly got back. After calming down, he turned his head and looked slowly
at Ernie, “Next time when you come in, please knock the door!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Can I still see such a nice scene if I knock on the door?" Ernie came forward with a smile and sat on
the chair opposite of him, “Mr. President, I want to ask you what you are doing with Sylvie during
working hours?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Marley looked at him, “Go downstairs!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Oh?" Ernie raised his eyebrows, "What are you going to do downstairs?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"My office will need to be cleaned, we’ll go to your office and talk!" Marley said.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"That's fine too." Ernie chuckled, “Let's go!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;They walked out of the office one by one.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sylvie looked at their back. Both of them were confident and smart. Both of them were from wealthy
families. But in her eyes, they just seemed so lonely and sad.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Even Ernie looked lonely and sad too! She saw his loneliness.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Suddenly Sylvie sighed, even when they had thousands or even millions of people supporting them,
she still felt that they were really having a hard time! And because they were cousins, they seemed so
similar!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Seeing the door of the president's office closed, Sylvie sighed. Marley seemed to have deliberately left
her here, for fear that Ernie would harass her, so he would rather go down himself to talk to him. But
what would they talk about?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The secretary room seemed to be in a different atmosphere without Aila.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Maisy was humming and came in with materials in her hands, “Sylvie, would you like to have some
coffee? I’ll get you a drink?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"No! Thank you. I'll drink tea!” Sylvie smiled.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Alright then, I'll make you a cup of tea!" Maisy volunteered to make tea for Sylvie, “Daria, what do you
want? Coffee or tea?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Coffee, thank you!"
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"It feels comfortable after someone left!" Maisy smiled happily and went to serve drinks.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Here is your tea!" Maisy put the tea on Sylvie’s table.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"Thank you!” Sylvie said with a smile.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;"You are welcome! From today onwards, we'll be the three musketeers! It’s good to be united, my
friends!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;
