Leila was stunned when she met Sheryl. Though Sheryl had lost her memory, Leila feared her and was afraid that there would be severe consequences to this.

Leila could not restrain herself and blurted out,"You are presumed to be dead. How could you be here in fine health?" Sheryl looked at Leila with a perplexed expression on her face. "Are you talking in your full senses? Are your words sensible and reasonable? I cannot figure out what you are trying to say."

"No… no, I did not mean anything serious..." Leila managed to calm down and continued to stare at Sheryl. Sheryl was indifferent to Leila and turned away.

'It seems Autumn has really forgotten the past. What on earth could have happened?' Leila wondered.

"Well, let us join the dinner!" Gary was the happiest person on earth to welcome Autumn's return. It had been three long years of separation.

Sheryl was supposed to sit beside Charles. Meanwhile her old friend Isla kept looking at Sheryl. She was thoroughly perplexed. She found herself hesitant to talk to her.

But Sheryl smiled at Isla politely without any recognition.

Sheryl's presence left all present absolutely stunned, especially Leila.

Leila still could not believe her eyes. Her confused thoughts kept playing in her mind. 'Sheryl somehow looks like Autumn.

But is she really Autumn? What is her true identity?'

During dinner Charlie was very delighted to chat with Sheryl. This upset Leila. She took Charlie aside and scolded,"Charlie, why are you being so attached with Sheryl? Stop troubling her with your chatter."

"Do not touch me!" Charlie pulled away from Leila with evident dislike.

Anthony in the meantime had brought Shirley to Sheryl's hotel. He planned to surprise Sheryl. On reaching the hotel he called Sue to tell her to inform Sheryl of his arrival.

Shortly afterwards, Sue was rushing out alone to meet Anthony and Shirley.

"Aunt Sue!" Shirley lost no time in rushing towards Sue and giving her a loving hug. She wanted to make up for their long separation.

Sue kissed Shirley affectionately and asked endearingly,"Shirley, did you miss me?"

"I missed you so much!" Shirley expressed her love for Sue while nodding her tiny head.

Sue was a little upset by Anthony's serious look and casual greeting.

She realized Anthony had come to meet Sheryl not her.

"Sue, where is Sheryl?" Anthony finally enquired about Sheryl's whereabouts.

"She is not here." Sue complained to Anthony,"Sheryl headed to the birthday party of a little boy soon after our fashion show ended. She did not even attend this evening's victory banquet. Even I do not know exactly where she is."

"Why did you not go with Sheryl to keep her safe?" Anthony was too worried about Sheryl. He could not bear to stand there patiently chatting with Sue. He knew he was wrong to be angry and irritate with Sue.
