"Miss Ye," Sheryl addressed her from a distance. "May I ask if there is anything I can do for you?" Her investigative eyes locked with Holley's while she was waiting for her reply.

"George told me you didn't sign the contract, so I wanted to talk to you about that," Holley mentioned with a nonchalant smile on her face. "Is there any problem with the contract?" she then inquired.

"No, it has nothing to do with the contract," Sheryl said decisively. "Relocating to another city is not an easy thing. I would definitely need more time to consider this," she explained.

"But aren't you a native of Y City, Miss Xia?" Holley blurted out. That was definitely not a smart move of her. She regretted it as soon as the words came out of her mouth. However, it was too late to do anything about it at that point.

Surprised by Holley's question, Sheryl aggressively asked for a clarification,"How did you know my hometown is Y City, Miss Ye?"

'Only a few people know I was born in Y City; how would Holley know that?

It isn't as if she has known me for that long... Or has she?' Sheryl wondered failing to find a good explanation.

The last thing Holley wanted was to raise any more suspicions in her mind. She had to play it safe this time. "Oh, don't get me wrong," she explained kindly. "I simply heard Miss Wang mention it at the party, the other day."

Then, on a more cautious tone, she continued prying,"I also heard you lost part of your memory. Wouldn't you want to get it back? It's a big part of your life, after all. Doesn't it bother you not knowing your past?"

Holley noticed Sheryl was seriously contemplating on her words, so she went on,"I have a friend who is a doctor. He explained to me that spending time in a familiar place could help someone who lost their memories remember some of them again."

Suddenly, Sheryl cut her off by asking,"Why are you so interested in me, Miss Ye?" Something was off, and Sheryl couldn't quite put her finger on it.

Holley had always kept things to herself, so this change in attitude was strange. 'Even though she is actually trying to be nice to me, I still feel that I can't trust her, ' she told herself.

"Do I look like a bad person to you?" insisted Holley through her reversed psychology tricks. "I can relate to you because Y City is also my hom

feel her fingernails cutting through her palms. Overpowered by fury, she was not about to go anywhere anymore.

'I completely changed my appearance and even now you can't pay attention to me, Charles? What does it take to get you to look at me?' she asked herself.

But asking herself was not enough anymore. She had to intervene,"Miss Xia, is he... your boyfriend?" Holley forced a fake smile as she struggled to spit those last two word out. Charles was finally taking cognizance of Holley, who had been standing beside Sheryl all along. As he was observing her fine facial features, he couldn't shake the familiar feeling she brought him.

However, his gently squinted eyes looked wary. It felt like he had his guard on, like he would step back if she drew any closer.

"No, no, no, it's not like that," Sheryl denied her inference. Quite embarrassed and flustered at that point, she lowered her head in an attempt to collect her thoughts.

"I already have a boyfriend, and he is abroad," clarified Sheryl eventually. "He... is just a friend I've met here," she continued explaining. Charles felt quite irritated by those words. 'And I can't do anything about it! Sheryl lost her memory, so I'm just a stranger to her now, ' he realized.

"Is that so?" Holley asked rhetorically. 'You really think he is a stranger?' she giggled silently. 'Autumn, did you really forget this man? He is your husband. You used to love him so much and promised to spend the rest of your life in his company. How ironic!' she continued snickering covertly.
