Charles looked at Sheryl from head to toe. Sheryl then realized that she was only wearing underwear. Her face immediately turned crimson when she tried to take a glimpse of Charles who was standing in front of her. "Well...uhm..." she stammered. "Please give me a moment. I'll just change my clothes. I'll be back soon."

She immediately turned around and almost ran to the room. She could still feel her face blushing from the embarrassment a while ago. After she put on a decent and comfortable clothes, she went out. She found Sue waiting for her outside. She looked worried as she asked,"Sher, are you sure you're going to the hospital with him?"

"So what?" Sheryl asked back. She took a glance at Sue and went on,"Sue, I know you don't like him. But he saved my life. If I don't take him to the hospital right now, I wouldn't feel at ease." She sighed,"I hope you understand me."

"But..." Sue protested with a frown. "Aren't you worried that..." Sue stopped mid-sentence.

"I know what you're worried about." Sheryl didn't wait for Sue to finish her sentece. Roughly, she could already tell what Sue wanted to say. She grinned and then comforted Sue,"Don't worry, Sue. I know myself. I'll just accompany him to the hospital for some physical checkups. Nothing more." "After all he was injured because of me," she added.

"Well, then I should go with you," Sue suggested. However, Sheryl declined her offer.

"Sue, there is really no need for you to do that. Besides, I also want to talk to him. Shirley is still at Amy's so could you help me pick her up?" Sheryl made her voice sound sweet and her eyes tantalizing while asking a favor from Sue. She knew Sue would easily give in with this kind of appearance.

"Okay." As expected, Sue conceded defeat. Then she added,"But remember that you have to take care of yourself. Call me any time if you'd need my help." Sue knew there was no use insisting because Sheryl would definitely still say no.

A staff was helping Charles to the car when Sheryl came out. When she was already in front of him, he handed her the key. Then he requested,"Sheryl, please drive."

"What?" Sherry was stunned. She hesitated for a moment but finally took the key from him. She had no other choice since Charles was injured at the moment.

Though she was not very proficient in driving, Charles patiently guided her and never criticized her driving skill.

Moved by his patience, Sheryl felt somehow warm.

The car stopped at the gate of the hospital. Sheryl got off from the car first and then helped Charles out. Since Charles was injured, he held on to Sheryl's shoulder for support.

Slowly, they staggered into the hall. Sheryl helped Charles settle on a bench first before she

d call you Mr. Lu." Sherly's voice was full of sarcasm. "Let me remind you that I don't live alone. I have a daughter and she also needs me. She needs care more than you do. Now that you're forcing me to take care of you, what about her? Who would take care of her? Besides, you were not badly hurt. You could still take care of yourself. So, why do I need to take care of you?" added Sheryl. Sherly was getting impatient. All she wanted to do was leave this place.

"Oh, is that so? If your concern is Shirley, I don't see any problem with that. You could take Shirley with you to my house. I am sure Charlie would be very delighted about that too. You know that he likes to play with Shirley. What's more, at this time of each year, the servant at my house usually goes back to her home for a holiday. So definitely no one could take care of me at home." Charles stopped for a while and then continued,"Though I could move, I couldn't cook for myself. I don't want to eat takeout every day."

"You..." Sheryl was hopeless. But she was still doubtful of the excuses that Charles gave her. "Your servant went home for a holiday? How could that be possible?" "When did they go?" she asked.

"Actually, today," Charles replied. He then took his phone out and called Nacy. "Hello, Nacy. You could start your holiday today. I'm giving you a few days off. I'll just send you your pocket money later." After he hung up, he turned to Sheryl who was still in awe.

"See? You heard it. No one could take care of me now except you."

Sheryl sneered and replied sarcastically,"It seems that Mr. Lu is really generous to his servant. You even give her pocket money for her vacation."

"I'm sure you know that I have always been kind and generous to others," replied Charles in a cheerful voice. He felt victorious this time.
