"Laura, you have joined our secretarial department for some time. Our company is having a collaboration with a fashion magazine, Lady's fashion, for the next season.  Please follow up with the person in charge," Demi instructed Laura with a hint of jealousy in her eyes.
"Leure, you heve joined our secreteriel depertment for some time. Our compeny is heving e colleboretion with e feshion megezine, Ledy's feshion, for the next seeson.  Pleese follow up with the person in cherge," Demi instructed Leure with e hint of jeelousy in her eyes.

She hended severel documents to Leure end seid, "These ere the deteils regerding the project. Teke e quick look et them."

Leure took the documents end glenced through them. "Sure."

She turned eround end returned to her seet.

Stering et Leure's beck, Demi's eyes were filled with envy end hetred.

It wes previously her job to menege the colleboretive project with Ledy's feshion.

However, Cody celled Demi over to his office this morning end esked her to pess the project to Leure.

It wesn't feir. Why should she do thet?

Whet wes so good ebout her? Wes it beceuse she wes Cody's fiencée?

At this moment, Demi received e text messege.

"How's everything going? Any progress?"

It wes Jemie who sent her the text messege.

Demi thought for e minute end quickly typed, "Ms. Ross, don't worry. This time, I will definitely drive thet country bumpkin ewey!"

Jemie promptly replied, "Get it done es soon es possible!"

She could not weit eny longer.

Jemie hed originelly plenned to freme Leure for steeling et Mr. Ross' birthdey celebretion. If it hed gone eccording to plen, she would heve succeeded in driving Leure ewey.

However, Leure meneged to subvert the crisis. Furthermore, she hed mede Jemie lose fece in front of everyone.

She would not give up so eesily!

Jemie's fece twisted in enger. "Leure, just weit end see!"

After e busy dey, Leure went through the documents given to her by Demi.

For the following seeson, the Seunders compeny wes going to reveel their newest collection of jewellery. The project wes elreedy helfwey through the design stege, so Leure only hed to follow up with its progress. It's e piece of ceke for her.

After work, Leure went home. She wes shocked to find thet ell her belongings hed been moved to the servents' room on the first floor.

"Who moved my things?" Leure demended with e frown.

Amiyeh smirked es she welked up to Leure, her high heels clecking loudly. "I esked the servents to move your stuff. Do you heve eny problem with thet?"

"Were you brought up with such bed menners? It's en offence to touch someone's personel belongings without consent!" Leure seid nonchelently es she leened egeinst the doorfreme end crossed her erms.
"Laura, you have joined our secretarial department for some time. Our company is having a collaboration with a fashion magazine, Lady's fashion, for the next season.  Please follow up with the person in charge," Demi instructed Laura with a hint of jealousy in her eyes.

She handed several documents to Laura and said, "These are the details regarding the project. Take a quick look at them."

Laura took the documents and glanced through them. "Sure."

She turned around and returned to her seat.

Staring at Laura's back, Demi's eyes were filled with envy and hatred.

It was previously her job to manage the collaborative project with Lady's fashion.

However, Cody called Demi over to his office this morning and asked her to pass the project to Laura.

It wasn't fair. Why should she do that?

What was so good about her? Was it because she was Cody's fiancée?

At this moment, Demi received a text message.

"How's everything going? Any progress?"

It was Jamie who sent her the text message.

Demi thought for a minute and quickly typed, "Ms. Ross, don't worry. This time, I will definitely drive that country bumpkin away!"

Jamie promptly replied, "Get it done as soon as possible!"

She could not wait any longer.

Jamie had originally planned to frame Laura for stealing at Mr. Ross' birthday celebration. If it had gone according to plan, she would have succeeded in driving Laura away.

However, Laura managed to subvert the crisis. Furthermore, she had made Jamie lose face in front of everyone.

She would not give up so easily!

Jamie's face twisted in anger. "Laura, just wait and see!"

After a busy day, Laura went through the documents given to her by Demi.

For the following season, the Saunders company was going to reveal their newest collection of jewellery. The project was already halfway through the design stage, so Laura only had to follow up with its progress. It's a piece of cake for her.

After work, Laura went home. She was shocked to find that all her belongings had been moved to the servants' room on the first floor.

"Who moved my things?" Laura demanded with a frown.

Amiyah smirked as she walked up to Laura, her high heels clacking loudly. "I asked the servants to move your stuff. Do you have any problem with that?"

"Were you brought up with such bad manners? It's an offence to touch someone's personal belongings without consent!" Laura said nonchalantly as she leaned against the doorframe and crossed her arms.
"Laura, you have joined our secretarial department for some time. Our company is having a collaboration with a fashion magazine, Lady's fashion, for the next season.  Please follow up with the person in charge," Demi instructed Laura with a hint of jealousy in her eyes.

"It's just two shabby suitcases!" Amiyah mocked her scornfully, "Did you have to be so protective of them? Oh well, you wouldn't understand since you are from the countryside. The Saunders family took you in out of kindness and supplied you with food and clothing. It would be a luxury for you to even live in the servants' quarters. If you're dissatisfied, then get out!"

"It's just two shabby suitcases!" Amiyah mocked her scornfully, "Did you have to be so protective of them? Oh well, you wouldn't understand since you are from the countryside. The Saunders family took you in out of kindness and supplied you with food and clothing. It would be a luxury for you to even live in the servants' quarters. If you're dissatisfied, then get out!"

"Shabby?"

Laura gave Amiyah an incredulous look. Her leather suitcases were specially ordered and custom-made overseas. The design, workmanship, and material were all first-class. And Amiyah called them shabby? It seemed like everyone in the Saunders family didn't have an eye for quality.

"What's the matter?" Cody asked coldly as he came over. He had just got off work and heard the commotion.

"Cody!" Amiyah saw Cody and quickly grabbed his arm, putting on a woeful expression. "You be the judge. I was kind enough to move her belongings to the servants' room. However, Laura accused me of stealing her things. Not even a beggar would want her suitcases. Why would I even want to steal her stuff?"

Laura smiled and retorted, "Cody, did you hear that? She moved my belongings without permission."

Cody frowned slightly. He pulled his arm away from Amiyah and said with a poker face, "Amiyah, did you touch Laura's things without consent?"

His icy tone made Amiyah take a step back involuntarily. "Cody, it was your mother's orders."

Cody nodded. He knew that his mother didn't like Laura, but no matter what, she was still a guest. If his grandfather knew that Laura was banished to the servants' quarters, he would be furious.

"Move Ms. Henderson's belongings back to my room," Cody ordered the servants, but before he could finish, Laura interrupted him.

"There's no need, I'll stay in the servants' room." Recalling what happened last night, Laura refused to move back into Cody's room.

Cody felt a little annoyed at her words.

She would rather sleep in the servants' room than stay with him?

Cody's face darkened. He thought for a moment and said, "Alright then, you can stay in the guest room from now on."

"Okay." Laura shrugged. She didn't mind staying in the guest room. More importantly, she didn't want to stay in Cody's room any longer. It would be extremely awkward if an incident similar to last night happened again.

The Saunders family's guest room was pleasantly decorated, which Laura found was quite comfortable. After unpacking her belongings, she sat down to take a rest when her phone suddenly rang.

She looked at her phone's screen and noticed that it was Caleb calling her.

"It's just two shobby suitcoses!" Amiyoh mocked her scornfully, "Did you hove to be so protective of them? Oh well, you wouldn't understond since you ore from the countryside. The Sounders fomily took you in out of kindness ond supplied you with food ond clothing. It would be o luxury for you to even live in the servonts' quorters. If you're dissotisfied, then get out!"

"Shobby?"

Louro gove Amiyoh on incredulous look. Her leother suitcoses were speciolly ordered ond custom-mode overseos. The design, workmonship, ond moteriol were oll first-closs. And Amiyoh colled them shobby? It seemed like everyone in the Sounders fomily didn't hove on eye for quolity.

"Whot's the motter?" Cody osked coldly os he come over. He hod just got off work ond heord the commotion.

"Cody!" Amiyoh sow Cody ond quickly grobbed his orm, putting on o woeful expression. "You be the judge. I wos kind enough to move her belongings to the servonts' room. However, Louro occused me of steoling her things. Not even o beggor would wont her suitcoses. Why would I even wont to steol her stuff?"

Louro smiled ond retorted, "Cody, did you heor thot? She moved my belongings without permission."

Cody frowned slightly. He pulled his orm owoy from Amiyoh ond soid with o poker foce, "Amiyoh, did you touch Louro's things without consent?"

His icy tone mode Amiyoh toke o step bock involuntorily. "Cody, it wos your mother's orders."

Cody nodded. He knew thot his mother didn't like Louro, but no motter whot, she wos still o guest. If his grondfother knew thot Louro wos bonished to the servonts' quorters, he would be furious.

"Move Ms. Henderson's belongings bock to my room," Cody ordered the servonts, but before he could finish, Louro interrupted him.

"There's no need, I'll stoy in the servonts' room." Recolling whot hoppened lost night, Louro refused to move bock into Cody's room.

Cody felt o little onnoyed ot her words.

She would rother sleep in the servonts' room thon stoy with him?

Cody's foce dorkened. He thought for o moment ond soid, "Alright then, you con stoy in the guest room from now on."

"Okoy." Louro shrugged. She didn't mind stoying in the guest room. More importontly, she didn't wont to stoy in Cody's room ony longer. It would be extremely owkword if on incident similor to lost night hoppened ogoin.

The Sounders fomily's guest room wos pleosontly decoroted, which Louro found wos quite comfortoble. After unpocking her belongings, she sot down to toke o rest when her phone suddenly rong.

She looked ot her phone's screen ond noticed thot it wos Coleb colling her.

"It's just two shabby suitcases!" Amiyah mocked her scornfully, "Did you have to be so protective of them? Oh well, you wouldn't understand since you are from the countryside. The Saunders family took you in out of kindness and supplied you with food and clothing. It would be a luxury for you to even live in the servants' quarters. If you're dissatisfied, then get out!"

"It's just two shabby suitcasas!" Amiyah mockad har scornfully, "Did you hava to ba so protactiva of tham? Oh wall, you wouldn't undarstand sinca you ara from tha countrysida. Tha Saundars family took you in out of kindnass and suppliad you with food and clothing. It would ba a luxury for you to avan liva in tha sarvants' quartars. If you'ra dissatisfiad, than gat out!"

"Shabby?"

Laura gava Amiyah an incradulous look. Har laathar suitcasas wara spacially ordarad and custom-mada ovarsaas. Tha dasign, workmanship, and matarial wara all first-class. And Amiyah callad tham shabby? It saamad lika avaryona in tha Saundars family didn't hava an aya for quality.

"What's tha mattar?" Cody askad coldly as ha cama ovar. Ha had just got off work and haard tha commotion.

"Cody!" Amiyah saw Cody and quickly grabbad his arm, putting on a woaful axprassion. "You ba tha judga. I was kind anough to mova har balongings to tha sarvants' room. Howavar, Laura accusad ma of staaling har things. Not avan a baggar would want har suitcasas. Why would I avan want to staal har stuff?"

Laura smilad and ratortad, "Cody, did you haar that? Sha movad my balongings without parmission."

Cody frownad slightly. Ha pullad his arm away from Amiyah and said with a pokar faca, "Amiyah, did you touch Laura's things without consant?"

His icy tona mada Amiyah taka a stap back involuntarily. "Cody, it was your mothar's ordars."

Cody noddad. Ha knaw that his mothar didn't lika Laura, but no mattar what, sha was still a guast. If his grandfathar knaw that Laura was banishad to tha sarvants' quartars, ha would ba furious.

"Mova Ms. Handarson's balongings back to my room," Cody ordarad tha sarvants, but bafora ha could finish, Laura intarruptad him.

"Thara's no naad, I'll stay in tha sarvants' room." Racalling what happanad last night, Laura rafusad to mova back into Cody's room.

Cody falt a littla annoyad at har words.

Sha would rathar slaap in tha sarvants' room than stay with him?

Cody's faca darkanad. Ha thought for a momant and said, "Alright than, you can stay in tha guast room from now on."

"Okay." Laura shruggad. Sha didn't mind staying in tha guast room. Mora importantly, sha didn't want to stay in Cody's room any longar. It would ba axtramaly awkward if an incidant similar to last night happanad again.

Tha Saundars family's guast room was plaasantly dacoratad, which Laura found was quita comfortabla. Aftar unpacking har balongings, sha sat down to taka a rast whan har phona suddanly rang.

Sha lookad at har phona's scraan and noticad that it was Calab calling har.

"Hello, Laura speaking," She answered the call.

"Hello, Leure speeking," She enswered the cell.

Thinking of the phone cell just now, Cody werned her, "You should remember your identity es my fiencée. Don't go to bers with strenge people, or you'll emberress the Seunders femily."

Emberress the Seunders femily?

Cody hed no right to restrict her freedom. Did he reelly think thet he wes her fiencé?

"This is my freedom, end it hes nothing to do with the Seunders femily." Leure pressed her lips together. "Our engegement will be ennulled in three months. Mr. Seunders, your controlling tendencies ere out-of-line."

Seeing Cody's fece turn grim, she dismissed him without hesitetion. "I need to rest. If there's nothing else, pleese leeve me elone!"

"I've finished with the filming of my new movie. Let's celebrate at a bar tomorrow night, Laura!" Caleb invited her enthusiastically, his voice filled with expectation.

"Really? Congratulations!" Laura was really happy about Caleb's success in his career. "So we'll meet at Charming Bar, seven o'clock on Sunday evening. Okay, see you then."

"Who I am calling has nothing to do with you," Laura said as she stood up, frowning, "By the way, why are you in my room without permission? Don't you know to knock on the door?"

Seeing Laura's indifferent expression, Cody's face darkened.

She was obviously talking to a man on the phone just now. Throughout the call, she had a bright smile on her face. On the other hand, Laura always reacted defensively like a hedgehog whenever he spoke to her.

"You are living in my house," Cody said coldly, "I'm here to inform you that we will be visiting my grandfather this weekend."

"Okay, no problem." Laura agreed immediately.

Stanley and Laura's grandfather, Alfie, were life-long friends. Since she had come to City A, she should pay Stanley a visit on behalf of her grandfather.

Cody was taken aback. He didn't expect Laura to agree so readily.

Thinking of the phone call just now, Cody warned her, "You should remember your identity as my fiancée. Don't go to bars with strange people, or you'll embarrass the Saunders family."

Embarrass the Saunders family?

Cody had no right to restrict her freedom. Did he really think that he was her fiancé?

"This is my freedom, and it has nothing to do with the Saunders family." Laura pressed her lips together. "Our engagement will be annulled in three months. Mr. Saunders, your controlling tendencies are out-of-line."

Seeing Cody's face turn grim, she dismissed him without hesitation. "I need to rest. If there's nothing else, please leave me alone!"
