"The thing you want to know?" A tinge of vigilance flashed within Leila's eyes. She stared at Charles in awe and questioned, "What do you even mean by the thing you want to know?"

Charles' expression turned fretful. He glared at Leila without blinking his eyes for once and interrogated, "I've had enough of you Leila! You better be honest with me. Otherwise, I'll teach you a harsh lesson that you will surely remember for the rest of your life."

Leila's brows furrowed instinctively. She had apprehended that Charles had run out of his endurance. But, she truly not even had the slightest idea of what Charles wanted to know from her.

She pondered for a second and made a pledge to Charles, "Mr. Lu, I promise you, I'll make an amend and never show up in front of you ever as long as you let me go. I really don't know what else to say?"

"Stop crying wolf. You know very well this is not I want to hear," Charles responded with creased brows. He further added in a threatening voice, "Or you just want me to remind you of what you should confess?"

Leila was dismayed and frightened by Charles' furious expression. She looked at Charles and asked tentatively, "So would you like to remind me please?"

"Ferry," Charles replied briskly. When Leila heard Ferry's name, her face got pale as if all of her blood were drained suddenly. She began to avoid eye contact with Charles and pretended not to understand what he wanted to know. "I don't know what are talking about. Who is Ferry? I don't know him at all."

"Leila." Andy could no longer stand to remain silent. "I think you'd better not double-cross us. You even can't protect yourself anymore and you are trying to protect Ferry. Are you even in your senses? You are very well aware of how important Sheryl is to Charles. Now since there are only us here! No one will ever know what happened to you."

Andy smiled sarcastically and continued, "Even if you refuse to confess, Charles and I have the power to find Ferry by just spending enough time and efforts. You are keeping secret for Ferry and trying to protect him. But w

not that kind of patient person."

Leila raised her head and stared at Charles. In the same moment, she got the flashback of what Holley once said to her.

If she spoke out this thing to Charles, she could not assure at all that whether Charles would let her go or not. But if she didn't do so, Yvonne would not let any opportunity go to torture Sheryl as she hated her intensely.

Therefore, whatever consequences occurred, she must have to bear it. Leila's wickedness would make her feel happy as long as Sheryl also lived a hard life.

After struggling for a long time, she finally chose to keep Holley's identity a secret.

"I think there is some misunderstanding. The kidnapping was done by me alone," Leila responded to Charles. "Charlie has been with me for so many years. I've truly treated him as my own son. I just want to see him and let him be with me. Am I wrong? Isn't it my right as his foster mother?" Leila kept justifying herself.

"Leila, I once said that I don't like people who lie to me," Charles answered rudely. "If you still lie to me, I'll teach you a lesson. Keep that in your evil mind." He threatened her with a stern expression.

Leila hesitated for a while, and eventually decided to not to be honest. "Mr. Lu, you should also know that I am a mere cipher. I don't have any power. Each time it was Ferry that contacted me. I couldn't find him at all."
