Noel was left feeling awkward right then.
In reality, the mysterious
Lovely who ranked first globally had retained her crown for three consecutive years. Noel was far from r
eaching her level, and it was by sheer luck that she won fifth place last year.
However, that was enough for her to become a miraculous being at Starstream, with every employee w
orshiping her blindly.
Even so, Hank Rogers concluded among the murmurs of disapproval toward Cordy. “Why don’t you jus
t be a macro manager instead? It’s easier for everyone.”
Noel was laughing to herself as he mocked ‘Cordy openly.
After all, she knew Cordy would not have it easy even after she reclaimed Starstream Group. Aside fro

they did not mind affording Cordy three months until she gave up.
“When I worked at Jessop Corp…”
are designers of high fashion here in North City, but you only worked in PR back then.” Hank continued
to throw shade at Cordy, not even allowing her to finish. “You had nothing to do with designing. so it’s t
wo different issues altogether. Please don’t bother to push yourself”
Cordy rose from her seat then, but while everyone thought that she would storm off after having enoug
h, she remained perfectly calm..
Whipping out a USB flash drive, she plugged
it into the conference room laptop and presented several slides.
“These are all Starstream fashion lines over the past two years. It’s very obvious that nothing much has
changed over each passing season in the last two years, and the design Ms. Noel Sachs
presented is now at the point of being identical. I’d think she was showing me last year’s draft if not for t
he change of dye.” “It’s been the trend for the last two years.
Noel wanted to argue, but Cordy scoffed. “Didn’t you get any
inspiration while you were visiting Jessop Corp today?”
“I’m a professional. I won’t plagiarize another company’s work,” Noel said righteously.
“And I’m telling you that since this spring, the trends have been changing drastically. Here–
take a look at the brochures of planned releases from several major international brands. I’m sure it’s n
ot that difficult to tell that your designs bear zero resemblance to those trends.”
Cordy was ruthless, but that was because she could not bear with what Noel was doing.
Sticking to a single draft and milking it for two years? It was no surprise that Starstream’s performance i
n the market kept failing.
Noel’s expression darkened even as Cordy shut her down, but it was true that she lacked inspiration an
d had not been putting an effort in her designs over the last two years.
Naturally, once Cordy exposed her in front of everyone, she had no retort.
In fact, even though the other heads of department were all loyal to Noel, they could not lie through thei
r teeth with such solid evidence thrown in their faces.
Silent, they all felt as if Cordy slapped them in the face.
With that, Cordy told Noel, “From now on, all drafts from your department would only go into production
. after my assessment. Also, you have one week to prepare a new draft. Submit it personally to me by n
Then, turning to the rest, she announced, “Since none of you prepared the summaries I asked, I want t
hem on my desk by nine in the morning tomorrow. If it isn’t submitted by that deadline, your respective
departments” performance will be marked as null.”
And with those imposing words, she left.
While Stephen hurried after her, everyone else was left gaping at Cordy’s departing figure, surprised by
her charisma and gravitas.
Did she just boss them around? But she was only twenty–five, and a woman at that!
After returning to her office, Cordy told Stephen, “Every department manager
is Simon’s lapdog. How I would like to shake up the entire company and bring in new blood.”
“A shake–up would actually make it difficult
to win loyalty, and organizations need its members to work as one,” Stephen pointed out worriedly
“So we just fire a handful as a demonstration to the rest. That said, the priority is to get rid of Fiona Lam

Stephen actually did a double take, though that was because Cordy far exceeded his expectations.

It was almost like seeing Cordy’s mother at the helm again.
Meanwhile, over at the CEO’s office in Levine Ventures HQ, Randy Martin was standing behind John.
Randy had this nagging feeling that his boss was distracted, but did not dare to ask.
After all, he was very much aware that his boss did not like to be interrupted while he was working.
“Randy,” John said, suddenly putting down the document he was holding.
“Yes, Mr. Levine?”
“How are things over there?” John asked right away.
The north? The east? The south? Or the west?!
Randy’s mind seemed to travel around the globe for a split second before inspiration struck him. Mrs. L
But did John not say to trust her? That was why he did not keep tabs.
Still, Randy was quick on his feet.
“I’ll go ask,” he said and left.
He returned soon after, and reported, “Mrs. Levine called for a meeting of the executives, but things
did not go smoothly. That said, it was not a defeat, since the executives were fuming after the meeting,
and one of our people was saying that Noel left the conference room with puffy eyes.”
John’s lips, which were pursed for most of the day, finally relaxed.
Picking up the coffee beside his hand and taking a small sip, he then asked, “Mrs. Levine?”
“…Right?” Randy asked with a slight quiver in his voice.
“Don’t get ahead of yourself.”
Randy almost wanted to complain because John was grinning ear–to–ear
To no one’s surprise, men in love all saw the world through rose–tinted glasses.
“By the way, Mr. Davis called you while you were at that meeting earlier, Randy said, suddenly remembe

Putting down her coffee, she left her office and returned home, only to find a delivery boy waiting outside
Cordy was surprised–she did not order any delivery.
“One portion of heart–
healthy chicken soup. Please sign here!” the delivery boy chirped and held out a pen.
Cordy was about to turn him down when she saw ‘Dicky‘ on the order.
Coming to a realization, she signed it and brought it into her house.
As she drank the delicious broth, she mused to herself if she should thank John… but she eventually pu
