Sandy sat still, looking at Sophia thoughtfully.

Sophia remained quiet while she waited for Sandy's answer. Silence engulfed the room.

"You stabbed me before, Sophia... I don't think... Ah!" Her words ended in an abrupt shriek when Aaron suddenly pinched her chin painfully.

Leaning towards her, Aaron coldly whispered, "How impenitent. Do you want to die?"

... Sophia was once again scared. How did her brother become so aggressive and merciless?

Sandy was also frightened. Trembling, she squirmed into the sofa and begged for mercy. "Please... Please let me go..."

"Why would I let you go? What good will it do me? And what about my sister? Will Dorothy let her go? Answer me!" The expression on Aaron's face was vicious and scornful.

Sandy was too scared to say a word. She almost lost consciousness in the face of his confrontation, her eyes rolling to the back of her head.

Sophia didn't stop Aaron. After all, her brother was only scaring the girl. He hadn't done anything to her.

She glanced at Colin, who was leisurely leaning against the desk. He didn't react to Aaron's aggressive behavior.

"Open your eyes. Or I'll fly to Song'an City and kill your parents after breaking your neck."

Sophia got increasingly alarmed as she listened to the conversation. How could her little brother talk about killing someone so casually? She took hold of Aaron's wrist and pulled his hand off the trembling woman. "Sandy, I'm not asking you to perjure yourself. I'm merely asking you to tell the truth. If Dorothy has threatened you, you can tell us. We'll protect you."

As soon as Sandy was released, she curled into a ball. "I... I'll tell you everything... I didn't want to frame Miss Lo. But because I wasn't cooperative, Miss Lien threatened to strangle my baby. My baby was only two months old at that time..."

Sandy's whole body shook at the memory of Dorothy's threat. Sophia was also shocked. She had known that Dorothy was cold-blooded, but she didn't expect her to be cruel enough to threaten to kill a 2-month-old baby.

It reminded her of her own baby's death. Was Dorothy also involved? Instead of the umbilical cord strangling his neck...

Colin noticed that Sophia's face had gone pale, and she had a faraway look in her eyes. He could imagine what was going on in her mind.

A guilty look flashed in his eyes. He walked to Sophia and pulled her into his arms. "Don't think too much."

What did he mean? Sophia was confused by Colin's actions. But before she could think more about it, Sandy continued... "And she also threatened to kill my parents if I didn't obey. We wanted to escape, but she then threatened to kill the rest of my relatives... I can run away with my parents and my baby, but I can't bring the whole Zhou Clan with me. Even if we moved away, we can't escape the power of the Lien Clan..."

Sandy trailed away, and her eyes fell on Colin. Sophia was confused. In the next moment, she was surprised to see Sandy jump off the sofa and kneel in front of Colin. Her knees made a loud noise as she dropped on the ground. "Aren't you Mr. Colin Li? I'm begging you... Please help me! I'm willing to atone by testifying for Sophia. But please save my family from the Lien Clan... Please, I'm begging you..."

Sandy went crazy. She bowed to Colin repeatedly, her forehead banging loudly on the tiled floor. Frightened by the scene, Sophia cowered in Colin's arms.

But Aaron didn't seem surprised at the situation. He casually sat on a nearby single sofa.

Colin glanced at his bodyguards, who quickly pulled the kowtowing Sandy up to her feet.

Her forehead had become bruise

d and swollen in a matter of seconds.

"Mr. Li, Miss Lo didn't stab me. Before she arrived, Miss Lien had prepared the knife in advance. She was also the one who stabbed me. Miss Lien was outraged at the time because Mr. Payne Tai kept arguing with her over Miss Lo. When she learned about Sophia's visit, she prepared the knife in advance."

That was true. When Sophia arrived that day, Dorothy tried to stab her. Noticing Dorothy's intention, Sophia stepped aside to evade her blow. But after a stumble, Dorothy accidentally stabbed Sandy, who was standing nearby.

Later, Sophia was inexplicably sent to prison. Apparently, Dorothy had reported that she had tried to kill her maid. With Payne acting as a witness, the evidence was conclusive. Sophia was sentenced to three years in jail for attempted murder.

In court, she had been sentenced to three years in prison. But Dorothy used her connections to extend her sentence to five years.

In the end, Colin was able to guarantee the safety of Sandy's family and succeeded in making Sandy promise to testify for Sophia when necessary.

On their way back, Sophia breathed a sigh of relief. The matter was finally resolved. As she drove the car, Colin and Aaron discussed some arrangements in the backseat.

"Grit's maternity leave starts tomorrow. Meet me in my office at 8:00 a.m.."

"Okay, brother."

Sophia cleared her throat to scold her brother. "Aaron!"

Aaron feigned ignorance. "What's wrong, sister?"

Sophia was speechless. Fine, she would deal with him later. "Nothing. Let's bring Mr. Li to his house first before going home together."

"Oh, go home first, sister. I've got some urgent business to deal with. I'll be back later." Aaron had his own business to deal with.

Sophia frowned at his words. What urgent business needed to be dealt with in the middle of the night? Her brother just came back from abroad. Who was he meeting with?

It seemed her brother had changed a lot. He was keeping a lot things from her. She would definitely ask him when she got the chance.

"That can wait until tomorrow. It's too late already! You've just come back from abroad today. You need to go home and rest."

Aaron flashed her a smile. Instead of refusing or agreeing with her, he said, "Okay, I'll be home as soon as I can."

Colin wasn't happy with their conversation. Although they were siblings, he didn't think an adult man and woman should live together. He took out his phone and called Wendy.

"Mom, is Brody there?"

At the mention of Ambrose's name, Sophia's ears perked up as she listened to Colin's phone conversation.

Ambrose quickly answered the phone. "Dad, are you still busy?"

"No, I'm not busy. I'm with Sophia." Colin calmly replied.

His son didn't let him down with his reaction. Ambrose yelled when he mentioned Sophia's name. "Aunt Sophia! I miss her so much! Dad, please bring her back home with you!"

"Oh... I can't speak for Sophia. Ask her yourself."

Colin put the call on loudspeaker. Ambrose's voice filled the car.

"Aunt Sophia, it's Brody! I miss you so much! Can you sleep in our house tonight?" He was so excited to see Sophia again.

Sophia's heart melted at Ambrose's ecstatic voice. But she couldn't go back with Colin tonight. "Sorry, little one. How about I pay you a visit tomorrow? It's too late already."

"Why? Aunt Sophia, please! I want you to sing me a lullaby! If not, I'll feel really bad!" Sophia couldn't bear to hear Ambrose's disappointed tone.

She bit her lower lip as she stared into the distance. Should she give in? It didn't seem appropriate to visit them at this late hour...
