Suddenly, Sheryl's mind was plagued with worry. Just as she was about to head out and find Sue, Charles rushed towards her as he saw her in a hurry to leave. "What's going on? Why are you in a hurry?"

"Something happened." Sheryl's face looked almost blank, but her voice was clearly anxious. "Sue hasn't come yet. I'm afraid…"

The tension in Charles' shoulders dropped in relief. He smiled and reassured her, "Oh... that. You don't have to worry. Even if she doesn't come, the press conference will push through. Don't go anywhere, okay? The press conference will start soon."

"But…" She kept looking anxiously at the door. She was torn because, on the one hand, she was worried about Charles' press conference, and on the other hand, she was worried about Sue's safety.

"Don't worry, everything will be okay," Charles assured her and patted her on the shoulder. "Don't think about it. You can go get your makeup done first."

Since Charles asked, she figured she should get ready. As soon as she turned around, the director burst the door open and started yelling, "Do you have any idea what time it is? Do you know how important today's event is? How can you be so relaxed? Don't you care about this conference at all? And here I thought you were capable of being professional. Where the hell have you been?"

Sheryl realized his eyes were trained on something behind her, so she turned around and found Sue apologizing to him. "I'm sorry director. something really important came up earlier. I didn't mean to be late, really."

"You've got better things to do?" he sneered in response. "So if everyone here tells me that they have something else to do, I'm just going to have to move the conference, is that it?" He was furious.

"I'm sorry, I'm sorry…" Sue was still apologizing when Sheryl came to her side. "Director, we're already pretty late. Why don't you scold her after the press conference is over? Let's have her go to makeup first."

Sheryl had a point, and the director stopped himself. He knew the relationship between Sheryl and Sue,

ned out, all because of a man. Luckily, Sheryl didn't care about all that.

She could see that her old friend was being sincere, and considered telling her everything. After considering it, though, she was afraid that she would get Sheryl tangled up in the mess of her family.

"I'm fine, really." With a gentle tone, she said, "Sher, I know you're being kind, and you want to help. I really appreciate what you've done for me. I've wronged you too many times before, and I really don't have the right to call myself your friend anymore."

"Sue…" It only concerned her further. Sheryl still couldn't read what was going on in Sue's head, but she knew deep down that she was saying such things to keep her out of her business.

The thought made her angry, and she had to make something clear. "Sue, you don't have to hide it from me. I overheard you on the phone yesterday. It was your family, wasn't it?"

Her words made Sue's face turn pale. She bowed her head low to hide the emotions surfacing. "No, it was not like that. Don't worry about me, I'm okay."

"What are you afraid of, Sue? Why are you still trying to hide it? Do you really think I'm clueless?" She looked at Sue pointedly. "Look at the wound on your back. What good is it for you to hide like this?"

"I…" Embarrassment started creeping up Sue's face. She looked at Sheryl briefly. "That's enough."
