"That's enough! Can you just shut your mouth now?" Anthony stood up and glared at Laura with his wrath-filled eyes. Unable to take it anymore, he shouted at Laura angrily, "For once, can you stop gossiping? Why should everything have to be about Sheryl? I inform you one last time, I have nothing to do with her now. Our breakup happened a long time ago. Besides, the issue I have with Sue is not something you need to know. Don't try to intervene. It's our own business, not relevant to you at all. Today, I have set a clear boundary for you. If you ever cross this line, knowingly or unknowingly, I won't be able to forgive you."

"I am your mother, I know very well what is good for you and what is not. Why don't you ever listen to me? Everything I say is for you own good, not mine," explained Laura trying to calm him down. But Anthony was not in a mood to be "educated" by his mother. These words had no impact on him. He liked to live his life with his own values and beliefs. Moreover, he believed himself capable of making right judgments. Therefore, he saw no need for him to sacrifice his own life to please anyone else, not even his own mother. He felt that Laura had tested his patience today so he left the room. The idea of speaking to her more magnified his anger. Meanwhile, Carlson entered the room right after the unpleasant conversation had taken place. On entry, He wondered what was the reason behind this hostile atmosphere. "What happened?" he inquired glancing at Laura.

"No... Nothing." Laura shut her mouth immediately. There was no way she would spill out this incident to Carlson. In order to divert Carlson's attention, she decided to bring up a different topic. "You must be hungry now, aren't you? Do you want something to eat?"

"No, it's okay. I am not hungry. I don't feel like eating now." Carlson had been feeling down recently. He went out every day and stayed there from dawn to dusk without informing anyone what kept him busy. Laura did not ask him about it. She was aware her questioning would annoy him.

Without saying anything, Carlson walked away and started going upstairs. Laura was left alone. He didn't bother giving her any explanation.

On the other side, Anthony was walking when his phone started to ring. After giving it a quick glance, he continued walking. On the outside, he looked nonplussed but anxiety was eating him inside. In a calm manner, he shut the door tightly. Now he was alone and had no reason to stay composed. His compelling eagerness could no longer be hidden so he swiftly picked up the call. "How is it? Did you make any progress? Is there any clue that you found?" he asked, sounding out of breath.

"I found it," the person on the other end replied in an indifferent tone. "I have all the materials ready. I have emailed it to you. Do check your email."

"Alright, thank you so much," replied Anthony drily. "I will pay you the remaining sum after I check the material you have sent."

When the phone call ended, his excitement reached a new level. Quickly, he rushed to his computer in order to check the files he received. Just a brief scan through the document was enough to bring his fury. The more he read, the angrier he got

ionship with Anthony. It was a foolish choice which she made so she took full responsibility of it. Sheryl, on the other hand, wished nothing but the best for her.

In the end, she believed this was the price she needed to pay for being an idiot.

"Sher..." sighed Sue, trying to assure Sheryl. Taking a deep breath, she continued, "I know this drama is getting to you. You have important things to worry about. From now on, just don't pick up the phone if he calls you. I don't want you to bear all this for my sake. You don't have to be pestered by this annoying man. I will just move on with life."

"But you know, the thing is..."

"You are right, Sher." Looking at Sheryl attentively, Sue went on, "I have a strong feeling that one day, a man who knows me better, who treats me better and who loves me will come to my life. It is this hope that makes me move on. This small hope is what makes me want to forget about him. I now want to make new friends. The most important thing to me now is to settle the matter with Peggy and Allen. That is number one on my priority list. As for all other things, I have no mood for them right now."

Sheryl took a deep sigh. Listening to Sue's words, she believed she meant what she said. This brought immense happiness in her heart. 'Sue is ready to move on in life without Anthony. She gave him her heart and soul, so it is not going to be easy. But I am glad she is trying, ' thought Sheryl happily.

"Alright, I won't say anything now. But please remember, no matter what happens, you will come to me if there is a difficulty. I will always be there for you." Then Sheryl bid Sue her goodbye. "It's already very late. Go back and have a good rest now."

"Okay," Sue replied and nodded her head.

Meanwhile, Anthony was sitting with worry brimming inside his heart. He was so anxious about Sue that he couldn't stop pacing back and forth. Nothing could distract him from his guilt-filled thoughts. 'I didn't know her family mistreated her so brutally. If I knew this, I definitely would not have been nice to them this morning. Sue must be very hurt now, ' Anthony thought remorsefully.
