"Well, it's not like that." Amy hesitated for a moment. Eventually, she decided not to slander Charles in front of Sheryl. Amy didn't want to think about Charles' relationship with Leila for now. Anyway, Charles took good care of Autumn back then.

"It's just that in Y City," Amy continued after contemplating,"Charles is known for his loyalty to his wife. Everyone knows that his wife has been missing for three years now, but he still keeps on waiting for her. Almost everyone around has urged him to forget her and marry someone else, but he has turned a deaf ear on them. So, it's very difficult for other women to win his heart."

Looking at Sheryl, Amy couldn't help but feel sorry. Obviously, Sheryl liked Charles. Even though Sheryl refused to admit it, her eyes betrayed her.

"Just take Charlie's mother for example," Amy continued after a short pause. "She and Charles have a son of about Shirley's age, but Charles still doesn't intend to marry her. Men like Charles could be very cruel. So, you'd better stay away from him to avoid getting hurt in the future."

"Yeah, you're right." Sheryl smiled bitterly in agreement. With or without Leila and Charlie in his life, Charles would definitely still love Autumn anyway. He would never forget her. Sheryl knew very well that no one could change that.

Moreover, Sheryl never thought of becoming a substitute for Autumn, let alone replacing her. She knew what Autumn meant for Charles. So Amy was right all along. She must stay away from Charles so no one would get hurt.

"Okay, Amy. I could assure you that from now on, I wouldn't have anything to do with Charles," Sheryl promised while forcing a bitter smile.

Meanwhile, Sheryl also couldn't help but wonder, 'Why would Amy know Charles so much like the back of her hand?'

She didn't want to doubt Amy so she'd better ask,"Amy, you…" She furrowed her eyebrows and struggled to ask away,"Why do you know so much about Charles?"

Amy didn't try to hide anything from Sheryl. In fact, she had already prepared for this before she invited Sheryl for a chat. "Well, my son-in-law and Charles were business partners before. That's why I know him. Besides, Charles is a celebrity in Y City so prying into his private life isn't that difficult at all." "I bet every woman in Y City would also like to check on his private life," she added.

"Oh, I see,

l looked for ways to contact Sheryl and hear some news from her.

When Sheryl saw who was calling, she immediately answered her phone. However, she didn't look excited or glad at all.

"Sher, how is Shirley doing?" Anthony sounded very worried on the other end of the phone.

"She's fine. Don't worry," Sheryl answered. "She got a lot better after the doctor put her on an intravenous drip. The doctor even already told me that she could be discharged any moment."

"That's great." Anthony breathed a sigh of relief. Then he asked Sheryl,"How about you? Are you doing good?"

Of course, Anthony was worried about Sheryl too. Sheryl smiled and answered,"I'm not a child, Anthony. I can take care of myself."

"Sher..." Amy tried to get Sheryl's attention. Since Sheryl was on the phone, Amy decided that she'd better go. She bid goodbye to Sheryl,"I must leave now. I'll bring you breakfast tomorrow morning. Have a good night!"

"Okay, goodbye Amy. Thank you so much for your help," Sheryl replied before Amy turned to leave. When he heard Sheryl saying goodbye to someone, Anthony asked,"Sher, who were you talking with?"

"Oh, a granny. We met a few days ago and she is very nice. Actually, ever since Shirley was hospitalized, she is the one bringing us meals every day. Don't worry. I'll introduce her to you when you're back." Sheryl explained patiently to Anthony.

"Oh, I see. Sure, I would be very glad to meet her." Although Sheryl couldn't see Anthony on the phone, she knew he was smiling. "I would need to repay her kindness when I come back," he added.
