After Peggy left, Sue looked at Sheryl with teary eyes that were full of frustration and disgust for the kind of family she had. Then the very next moment she started to breathe faster and got worried about Anthony coming to know about her pregnancy. Sheryl came close to her and assured her with a pat. She smiled and said, "Don't worry. She won't have the energy or courage to cause trouble for you after today."

'The men arranged by Charles must be on their way to Peggy's house, ' Sheryl thought. Both Sue and Sheryl exchanged looks without any further discussion on the topic. Sue was assured that Peggy and Allen would be taken care of. After that Sheryl asked her to lie down. Sue lied down and closed her eyes. In just a matter of a few minutes, she fell asleep. There was a spring in Peggy's step and sparkle in her eyes as she walked out of the hospital. She had almost started daydreaming about Allen becoming a house owner in Y City.

In her way back home, she purchased some special dishes for Allen and Doris to celebrate the accomplishment.

Allen came up to her as she arrived home and he asked, "Mom, did she agree?"

"Don't worry." Peggy said to Allen confidently, "We know her secret now. So she has no other option than to agree. Moreover..."

Peggy paused for a while and smiled as she continued, "In any case if she refuses to agree, we can ask Anthony for the money. He is so rich and it is no big deal for him."

"Fine then." Allen let out a sigh of relief. But he was still rooted to the spot. It seemed that there was something else that was bothering him.

"Why are you still here? Just go and stay with Doris. I'm going to make dinner now," Peggy said loudly at Allen.

But Allen remained quiet and stood at the same place. He hesitated for a long time, reluctant to utter his words. Peggy was startled to see that he was completely unaffected by the news about the money. It was a little disheartening for her at the beginning as she thought that all the three of them could really have a good laugh after such a great accomplishment.

Peggy decided to clear the air for once and for all. She heaved a sigh and said, "What do you want to say? Tell me. What is bothering you?"

"Mom, now that this matter has been settled, so... I was thinking that we should also decide when you will give Doris the money as the wedding gift for her?" Allen spoke to his mother with a timid and hesitant v

heart filled with joy.

She was willing to do everything to see that smile on her son's face.

She had completely forgotten that she even had a daughter who was also pregnant and was struggling alone for herself and her child. Peggy had never been considerate towards her. As if it was only normal to be indifferent and demanding towards her.

Peggy's world revolved around her son. Her happiness to see him happy with the girl he wanted to marry was more than enough. She counted her blessings as she watched them enjoy the meal she had put together. As she stood up and was ready to fill some juice for Doris, the door bell rang.

"Who has come at such a old time?" Allen glanced at Peggy and asked curiously.

"I don't know." Peggy shook her head and put the juice in front of Doris. "Help yourselves. I'll answer the door," she said.

Allen didn't think too much about it and added a shrimp to Doris' bowl. "Eat more," Allen said with a smile.

Peggy opened the door and was amazed by the strong men in black suits standing on the other side. She thought clearly and made sure that she and her son didn't have any conflict with someone else.

"Who are you? What are you doing here?" Peggy asked with a frown.

"Are you Peggy Li?" Peggy nodded in affirmation as he stared at the cold and stern faces of the men. The man in the front of the group was Charles' man whose nickname was Scar. He cast a cold glance at Peggy and said, "We have come for you!"

"Come for me?" Peggy was taken aback. The men looked ferocious. She swallowed and asked in almost choking voice, "Excuse me... Do you know me?"
