Sue walked out of the bathroom after she spruced herself up. She hugged Sheryl tightly and kissed her cheek hard. "If I were a man, I would marry you without a second thought. You are going to be a perfect wife and mother, something of a rarity."

"Quit it," Sheryl stated shyly. She felt quite lucky to have Sue in her life. Sheryl smiled and informed her,"Amy made these stuffed steamed buns. I just reheated them. Come and eat some while they're warm. Hurry up. It's nearly time for work."

"I'll be right there," replied Sue excitedly. As soon as Sue finished breakfast, Sheryl straightened up her room. Then they got ready to leave. Sue had a lot on her mind that day. She couldn't stop complaining while they were waiting for a taxi. "It's quite an inconvenience not having a car. I could handle it while I was abroad, but now I can't anymore. How about you join me in looking for a car this week?"

"You really want to buy a car? Just like that?" Sheryl asked in surprise. She didn't think Sue had given it enough thought. Buying a car was not an overnight decision.

"Yeah, why? Do you find it strange that I want a car?" Sue was a bit confused. "No..." said Sheryl while slightly shaking her head.

Sue felt the hesitation in her voice. So, with an inquisitive look, Sue encouraged her to elaborate. Sheryl got her hint and continued,"I just think the decision comes out of the blue. That's all."

"Oh, actually I didn't decide on a whim at all," Sue began explaining. She glanced at Sheryl to confirm she was following her, and then went on explaining,"I really felt out of my element abroad all the time. Dependable transportation would have made my life a lot easier. But it didn't make sense to buy a car there. However, now... well, now I have a house which gives me a sense of stability in some way. So, I feel like this is the right moment to buy a car. Also in the future, if everything goes well for me, I want to bring my parents to live with me."

Sue then hugged Sheryl with a smile and added,"Unlike you, I have no children to raise. Hence, I have fewer mouths to feed and fewer things to worry about. I haven't worked out all the details yet, but I did manage to put aside a sum of money over the last few years. And by the way, after I buy a car, I'll drive you to work every day. You can count on me." Sue finished her words with a wink.

"Oh, thanks! That sounds great. I can't wait." Sheryl expressed her excitement while smiling ear to ear. After a good while, they eventually hailed a taxi, which they jumped into right away and rushed to work.

Once they arrived at their destination, they found that everyone else w

really gone too far? I was just telling the truth. You're the one who disgraces yourself by doing this. Then, don't blame us for being mean."

Sheryl had to put an end to all of that. She quickly snagged the bouquet from the florist and flung it right into a nearby trash can, without any hesitation. She then addressed the florist,"Please pass on a message to the man who sent the roses: Don't send me any more flowers, or you'll suffer the consequences."

The crowd around her started dispersing as the fight came to an end. Sheryl sat down in a rage, propping her body against Sue. Sue asked her with a slight frown,"Sher, why did Charles send you flowers?"

"I don't know," commented Sheryl angrily. "Uh! If I see him again, I'll definitely kill him."

The more she thought of the words on the card, the more sick she felt.

Upon returning to her store, the florist called David and related to him what had happened at BM Corporation. David broke out in a cold sweat as he heard the whole story. Compressing his lips into a line, he kept silent for a while and then managed to ask,"She really said that?"

After getting an affirmative answer, he politely hung up and turned to face Alice with a frightened expression. Almost in a whisper, he informed her,"Honey, I'm screwed. I messed things up so badly."

'Charles will bite my head off when he finds out, ' he kept thinking.

"What happened?" Alice approached David closer after a double take. Insistently, she inquired about it until David finally related the whole story to her.

He gave Alice a blow-by-blow account of everything, from Charles asking him for help with courting Sheryl to the failed attempt of sending her roses. He even mentioned the exact words written on that uninspired card.
