A Moment in Destiny novel Chapter 11

Sherry was stunned and looked at the coffee cup in her hands. Mr. Rowland won't drink the coffee made by her?

"Yes!" She made another cup of coffee.

Lara was about to leave but came over to her to smell the coffee, "What's so special about it? Sherry, do you know Mr. Rowland?"

"Huh? No!" Sherry shook her head, "I don't know Mr. Rowland at all! Ms. Rhodes, I'll take the coffee to Mr. Rowland first!”

Lara looked at her back view and scoffed and a thought flashed across her eyes.

Sherry served the coffee to the director's office and William was sorting out some documents, "Mr. Rowland, your coffee.”

"Okay." William looked up at Sherry. The metal black colored business suit by Machini emphasized his slim build, "You will be in charge of my coffee from now on!"

"Yes!" Sherry could only agree. This was directed by Mr. Rowland so she naturally had to obey.

William walked over and Sherry consciously took a step back while her head dropped even lower. She looked at the tip of her shoes helplessly and could smell the fragrance of tobacco leaves.

"Ms. Murray, are you used to it yet?" William's voice was cold and walked past her to sit on the sofa.

"Yes." Sherry's reply remained monosyllable.

"You can answer questions, can't you?” She heard the impatience in William's tone.

"Yes!" It was instinctive and slightly annoying. Sherry unconsciously pursed her lips and quickly looked up towards William.

It was just a gaze and she became inexplicably nervous. William's eyes blinked as he looked at the dumbfounded woman. Sherry lowered her head again. Her hand started to tremble slightly as she held onto the serving tray. She was puzzled as to why William was questioning her.

"You may leave!” William suddenly said coldly.

"Mommy, what took you so long to pick me up?” A kid with pink lips and white teeth was waiting for Sherry at the entrance of the kindergarten.

Apart from the teacher and Daniel, there was nobody else at the door.

"I'm sorry, Dan, mommy was late!” Sherry apologized sincerely to the teacher, "I'm sorry Mrs. Stone for all the inconvenience caused!"

"It's alright, Ms. Murray, your son looks so much like you!" That was the first time Mrs. Stone met Sherry. She finally understood where Dan got his facial features from, "The boy's eyes and eyebrows looked more like his father.’

"Oh!" Sherry felt awkward and smiled uneasily because Dan wasn't her child but almost everyone who knew her said the same!
