"Are you sure about that?" Sheryl probed doubtfully. She learned from Cary that George was a Mama's boy, who would do anything his mother asked of him. But what the detective disclosed about now was a different story.

Surprisingly, it turned out that he had a fight with his mother.

"Yes," the detective nodded at her. "According to the investigation, George Han has changed a lot in the past three years. Before he met Holley Ye, he was obedient and never doubted his mother's decisions. But now he is acting like a rebellious teenager and zealously opposes his mother. It is said that he will do anything for Holley. There were incidents where he engaged himself in physical altercations with others because of her. He was becoming a war freak. He even went to a great extent of threatening his mother about moving out from their family for Holley's sake."

With an undisguised contempt, he frankly remarked, "I have to admit that Holley Ye is a sly and smart woman. She knows how to fool a man to get what she wants."

"What about George's mother? Did she just sit around and do nothing?" Sheryl frowned. According to Cary, George's mother was not a simple woman.

"Of course not," the detective replied with certainty while handing her a piece of paper. "What's this?" she inquired, noting the address written on it.

"It is where George's mother lives after she moved to Y City. She has done a lot to ruin her son's relationship with Holley. I received a piece of information that she brought a girl and claimed she was her sworn daughter. But in fact, she intended to match that girl and her son together." He deliberately paused, allowing Sheryl to absorb the details. After a while, he continued, "As I have mentioned, Donna Han did not like them dating from the start. And through all these years, she never changed her mind despite all of her failed attempts to break them apart. I have to say that Holley is really something. She managed to turn George against his mother. He believes that his girlfriend is such a good girl, no matter how his mother spoke ill of her."

"In this case, George's love for Holley is unshak

who was leisurely drinking his coffee. She took out a bank card from her handbag and gave it to the detective. "This is for what you have done so far. If you can find any useful information again, I will pay you."

"Thank you, Miss Xia!" he curtly responded as he took the card. After he set the files aside, he assured, "Just leave it to me. I will not let you down."

Sheryl got out of the shop, found her car, and headed straight back home. When she drove into their yard, she saw Charles carrying some stuff into the trunk and Shirley was standing aside clapping cheerfully.

Parking her car, she walked out and made her way to Charles. "What are you doing?" she asked in confusion. She was eyeing the stuff in the trunk.

"You're back," Charles observed as he glanced up at Sheryl. Under the blazing sun, Charles was sweating profusely. Since his hands were dirty, he couldn't wipe his sweat away. Sheryl took out a light blue handkerchief and wiped the sweat off his forehead with it. With a little frown, she softly chided, "Look at you! You are sweating. Are you going somewhere?"

"Oh, yeah. We finally got a day off. Shirley wants to go out and have a barbecue, so I asked people to bring a gridiron and other stuff. And now that you are back, we can set off," he beamed. "I knew a good place for barbecue. So, let's go there."

Sheryl didn't want to spoil Charles' good mood. Grinning, she got into the car.
