Hugh looked down at the wine in his glass. He was silent for quite a while. He didn't know what to say, because he felt guilty.

Suddenly, he said, "Sophia, should you ever face any problem, promise me that you will call me and I'll be with you immediately!"

Sophia was moved by his promise but wondered what had prompted it. "Sure, Hugh. But tell me, what's wrong?" she asked.

Hugh shook his head and answered, "Nothing. It's just that mom has decided to go to the temple and submit to the Buddhist discipline while still wearing her hair*."

*TN: In Buddhism, one can live a simple and meditative life and attain nirvana by staying in a temple without shaving one's hair.

Sophia was surprised. "What happened, Hugh?" she gently asked.

Though Sophia wished that Jonas would be punished for what he had done, she also really hoped that Hermosa and her children weren't affected.

"Well, my mother just found out what my father had done to your family..." Hugh slowly said looking up at Sophia. Sophia was a good woman and deserved to be protected by a good man.

He really wanted to be that man but his father had killed her mother! There was no evidence to suggest this but everyone knew that this was what had happened.

Sophia froze and wondered how Hermosa knew this. Hermosa was really nice to her and if she knew that her husband was a killer... Ah! No wonder she was planning to go the temple!

Suddenly Hugh's phone started ringing. The man at the other end of the line said something and Hugh looked at Sophia. "I get it, " he said and disconnected the phone.

Sophia forced herself out of her reverie and quizzically looked at Hugh.

"Herring is in the Chess and Card Room on the seventh floor. They need a fourth player to play cards and they are calling us. Let's go there, " he said.

... Herring and Hugh, they were always with... Colin.

Hugh and Sophia rose from their seats. Sophia didn't want to go. "Could you go upstairs alone?" She hesitantly asked.

Hugh looked at her and laughingly said, "Don't worry! All of them have a woman accompanying them. If I go upstairs alone, it'll be very embarrassing."

Sophia thought about Hugh's words, 'All of them have a woman accompanying them?'

Unable to say no, Sophia went with Hugh to the Chess and Card Room on the seventh floor. When they opened the door of Room 706, they saw a heavy layer of smoke surrounding the players.

Sophia frowned and coughed due to the smoke.

Hugh suddenly caught hold of her hand, which startled her. Before she had managed to pulled her hand back, all the people in the room had seen them.

Three waiters and three waitresses were standing in the room. Besides them, she first saw Herring whom she hadn't seen for long. Shelly was sitting next to him and was smiling at her.

Then she saw Colin with a cigarette stuck in his mouth. And next to Colin, it was... Maeve.

The third man sitting next to Colin, was Patrick. He was accompanied by June, who was also gently smiling at her.

"Sophia! Come! Come!" Herring exclaimed excitedly on purpose. Hearing his reaction at seeing her, Sophia did not know how to respond.

She still remembered that three years ago, it was Herring who had kicked her out of Colin's villa...

However, she didn't hold a grudge against him. 'It is my fault. Herring just didn't want Colin to get hurt, ' Sophia thought to herself.

"Sophia, Hugh! Sit down please!" June wore a wine-red cheongsam and looked very beautiful. She stood up and hugged Sophia.

Sophia hugged her back. "June!" she acknowledged.

June nodded enthusiastically and seemed to be very happy.

Sophia and Hugh took their seats opposite Colin.

Shelly carefully looked at Sophia and realized that she had changed quite a lot. "Sophia, you've changed a lot, " she sincerely said. "You're much more beautiful

now!"

Sophia's face turned red and she promptly said, "I'm flattered, Shelly. Thank you. But actually, I don't think I've changed a lot. You yourself are looking radiant."

Sophia hadn't lied. Shelly was in love with Herring and her pretty oval face showed it.

June laughed. She pretended to be sad and said, "Both of you are young, beautiful and attractive! Unlike me, I'm already old."

Before anybody else could answer, Patrick immediately turned to her and asked, "Who said so?"

June smiled, looked at Patrick and replied, "I said so."

Sophia saw Patrick hold June's hand and looked into her eyes. "Oh come on, June. You are not a day over twenty eight or twenty nine, " he said.

Everyone knew that June was actually in her late 30s. But with good living conditions and personal care, she looked like she was only in her late 20s.

Sophia envied her. "Yes, my brother-in-law is right. Never say that you're old again, June, " she laughed.

Patrick was fondly gazing at June. It seemed that they were still on their honeymoon even though they had been married for a long time. So Sophia truly admired them.

Everyone liked to hear compliments and June was no exception. She slightly covered her mouth with her hands and smiled happily.

Herring thumped the table in front of Sophia to attract her attention. "Sophia, I'm sorry. Could you forgive me? Don't be angry with me, okay?" he apologized to Sophia.

'Sorry?' Sophia was confused by his words. She looked at Herring and asked, "What is it that you are apologizing for, Herring?"

'Does he feel sorry for having kicked me out three years ago? If he does, then he doesn't need to apologize.' Sophia thought to herself.

"Yes." Herring coughed to clear his throat and said, "Three years ago, I misunderstood you and blamed you. Little Sophia! Could you forgive me for what I have done?"

Sophia was shocked at his words, 'I misunderstood you.' She looked at Colin sitting opposite her. Colin was smoking and playing with the lighter. He kept switching it on and off and stared at the flame rising from it.

'Herring knows that I was innocent; so does Colin also know? He must know it.

If he does, then why is he still with Dorothy? In fact, he is planning to marry her the next month...' All these thoughts made Sophia pale.

The others noticed her face go pale. Herring opened his mouth to say something, but didn't know what to say. He wondered if he had said something wrong.

Maeve noticed Sophia looking at Colin. She provocatively put her arms around him and moved closer.

Colin turned to look at Maeve, smiled and said, "You naughty girl!"

Maeve withdrew her arms and pretended to ignore him. "I'm not naughty!" she huffed. It looked as if they were just flirting with each other.

But actually, Maeve had seen the warning and anger in Colin's eyes. That was the reason why she had withdrawn her arms.

Having known Colin for such a long time, she was afraid of him, especially after his divorce with Sophia.

Hugh hadn't said a thing since they came in. Holding Sophia's hand on the table, he realized that it was very cold. "Sophia, why is your hand so cold? Are you feeling cold?"

He asked with concern. Sophia was jerked back to reality. She wanted to pull back her hand, but Hugh didn't give her a chance. So she lowered her head, shook it and said, "I'm fine. Why don't you go and play."

She couldn't stop thinking that Colin had been deliberately drifting apart from her, even though he knew the truth.

'Why? Why?' She kept asking herself and sobbed in her heart.

When Hugh joined the table, Patrick asked him, "Did you drink just now?"

Hugh glanced at him and said that he had had something to drink downstairs. He then rolled the dice.

Sophia's phone was ringing in her bag. She took it out and saw that it was Aaron.
