Staring at Sheryl, Sue could not help but laugh. She then advised her cautiously,"Sher, if you don't like Anthony that much, then you should let him go. Such a great man like him deserves better, someone who can truly love him wholeheartedly. It's the right thing to do." Sue's heart had been yearning for Anthony for all those years. So she cheered at the thought of him possibly being available in the near future.

She remembered what Holley had once said to her. As long as Anthony was Sheryl's boyfriend, she couldn't do anything to hurt Sheryl.

But if Sheryl didn't even like Anthony at all, then staying together would make them both unhappy in the long run. 'In that case, should I go for it? It may be my only green light. I'd rather fail and get hurt than hold back and regret it later, ' Sue told herself.

Reflecting on her friend's words, Sheryl kept silent for a moment but soon after snapped out of it, reinforcing her determination. "I promise, Sue. I would never do anything to hurt Anthony as long as he doesn't wrong me himself. So stop worrying and please, just trust me." Sheryl's tone was a bit too assertive as if she had felt somewhat attacked by Sue's comments.

Sue had had one cup too many that night. Realizing that, Sheryl got up determined to leave. As she threw her coat on, she addressed Sue,"You had way too much to drink. It's late. Just go to bed and get some rest."

"Sher!" Sue called out, stopping Sheryl from leaving. She attempted to stand up, stumbling over her chair. Disoriented, she looked vaguely in Sheryl's direction trying to focus on her face and politely asked by waving her finger in the air,"Please wait a moment."

She then wobbled over to Sheryl and tried to persuade her,"I can ignore the fact that you will go to take care of Charles. I can also keep silent if Anthony asks me. But..."

Sue hiccuped and quickly continued with her thoughts,"Could you please just think about what I said to you just now? Please just let Anthony go if you really don't love him."

Without a second thought, Sheryl dismissed Sue's request,"You are so drunk." She edged past her and went straight to the door.

As much as she tried to ignore her words, they had actually hit a nerve.

Sheryl had mixed feelings about it. Was Sue right? Was leaving him the right thing to do? She spent the whole night contemplating that question.

The next morning, Sheryl woke Shirley up really early as they had to walk the long road to Dream Garden

so many questions? Quick, go over there and eat your breakfast."

Then, Sheryl suddenly caught sight of the boy's birthmark. That was the first time she noticed it even though she had known Charlie for such a long time. Confused, she blinked twice, trying to tie it to an event or a memory.

Eventually, it hit her. She had often dreamed about someone taking away her baby when she was giving birth. In her dream, the baby had a birthmark on his wrist just like Charlie's.

This realization gave her goosebumps. All that time, she had believed that it was just a nightmare. She had also asked Anthony about it, but he said that she was just being oversensitive.

She grazed a finger over Charlie's mark and felt like she was reliving her dream.

Suddenly, she felt under the weather. A whirlwind of emotions overtook her and she couldn't stand up any longer.

As she knelt down, Sheryl's heart leaped into her throat. Her mind was going haywire, and a strong headache began creeping in. She seemed to see the past, or perhaps another dream.

She tightly clasped her head in her hands. Charlie and Shirley got absolutely terrified at the scene.

Charles was also frightened. He wasn't sure what had happened.

Concerned, he shouted from the kitchen,"Sher, what's wrong with you?" He rushed to her quickly, and disregarding his back injury, he picked Sheryl up and laid her on the couch. He then poured a glass of water for her and asked again,"What happened to you? Are you hurt?"

Sheryl looked pale and kept sweating. She could hear Charles' words but couldn't say anything at all. She felt like she was having an out-of-body experience.
