The sharp retort of the slap echoed in the cabin. And with that, it felt like the air went still. No one moved. No one spoke. All eyes were on the sisters. Cameron was shocked, so much so that he didn't know what to say or do. All he could do was look at them. And he wasn't the only one.

Based on his facial expression, shock was evident in Scott's face. That must've debilitated him because he was just standing there, right behind Sharon, mouth agape. All the color had drained from his face, leaving him to look extremely pale. It was as if one stray gust of wind would crumble him

Silence reigned.

Even when he regained his senses, Cameron still didn't know what to do. Should he say something to alleviate the mood? If so, what? Or should he try to extricate Sharon from there? He didn't want her to get the front row seat of Scott's wrath. And he knew Scott was going to blow. He had been holding back since Amelia had rushed to the bathroom.

But behind it all, he jus couldn't believe what he'd seen. Sharon had really done it. He'd seen her lifting her hand and swing it but he hadn't really believed she'd do it. Not even when her hand had almost reached her cheek, he didn't believe she would do it. He knew how she was. The moment Amelia had told her about her pregnancy, she had been very mindful of her sister's wellbeing. She had even broken out of that house of madness upon knowing Amelia's arrival.

It had only been when she had really did it that he believed. But as much as he had been shocked, he wasn't too surprised. Seeing as she was extremely weak to pressure, especially from her family, it had just been a matter of time before she crumbled. While she was still working on it in her line of work, despite getting better at it, Amelia just knew which buttons to press.

And now that the deed was done, Amelia surprised them all by looking relieved. Her body was practically crumbling in on itself. It was as if all the tension had left her. As she slowly descended onto her seat, both Scott and Sharon moved in unison, holding out their arms to help her. It was amusing to watch them as Scott had no room to move with Sharon being in front of him and thus closer to his wife.

But with that, the cabin felt so much lighter as all the shock and pressure left. All that was left was the palpable pressure of their concern and that was only concentrated around Amelia. Luckily, she was near comatose with relief. Otherwise, he knew she would have exploded.

There was just something that he had forgotten.

"What the hell were you thinking?"Scott shouted, gripping Sharon's shoulder and forcibly turning her around. Getting to his feet, Cameron made his way to his friend, tension making him taut. He should have expected this. Just because his wife was fine with this didn't mean that he was. Despite his show of disinterest earlier, Scott loved his wife dearly,. And with how much he had held back, it was only logical for him to lash out now.

"What do you mean?"Sharon returned, looking up belligerently. A part of Cameron relaxed. He loved this show of strength from her. He had been worried that she would breakdown but the

o early to ask you to move in with me?"he asked after a while. He didn't want to admit it but he was unhappy about their current living arrangement. he just had to let it out. But seeing her brows furrow, he rushed to explain. "Hear me out. I just hate the distance. We're so far apart. I don't know what's happening with you. I can't send you to work. I can't eat your food. I can't control your ice cream intake."

"You know, some people hate to be so close with each other. Some people want their own space and privacy."

"Well, I'm not one of them. We already have that now and we still spend most of our time together anyway. You stay with me most nights anyway. Why do you need to pay rent on some other place? Think about how much we are saving if you just move in with me."

She didn't say anything. He didn't know what she was thinking. But he was hopeful. He wanted what they had before. Before he thought he was too good for her and moved out. Fingers crossed, he hoped for a positive answer. When her hand came around his hand and crossed fingers, he looked at her expectantly.

"With your oh so convincing argument, how can I say no?"

"Are you serious?" He wanted to cheer but he had to be certain. She hadn't looked happy with the idea the more he talked about it. He needed her to be. Or else, this was all a waste.

"I wasn't going to but you look like this is something important to you. And I guess deep inside, I really like living together."

"So yes?"

"Yes. But we need to set some ground rules- W-wait, Cameron-"

He knew she was saying something but he couldn't wait anymore. The moment she said yes was the moment he was ready to celebrate. Ignoring her resisting hands, he pulled her in for a kiss.

He was just so happy. His life was so much brighter than it had ever been. The question of his future, dark and formless as it had been, was more defined now. His apartment, a place where he previously went to rest, was becoming a home now. And his lovelife, an ever changing host of women, only had one person now. Just one

Now, how soon could he propose to her?
