Sheryl frowned and looked at Holley wordlessly. Her gaze was cool and unbothered.

She wished that she could somehow control Holley's actions, or at least be able to read her mind. She was willing to do anything so that they wouldn't have to be in such a messy situation. After all, Holley was her biological sister.

"Sheryl, when you lost your memory, did you lose your mind as well?" Holley mocked, with a cold smile that made her seem like a psycho. She looked at Sheryl with equally cold eyes. "So, what makes you think you have the right to interfere in my affairs?"

"I know you think low of me," Sheryl answered in a low voice. She felt a weird combination of anger, pity and disgust. "To be frank, I don't want anything to do with you either. But nothing can change the relationship between us. We share the same DNA. No matter how we try to deny it, the same blood flows in our veins."

Sheryl paused for a while and gave Holley a puzzled look. Then she added, "When I heard that you had managed to escape from prison, I was actually quite happy for you. But there's just one thing I can't figure out. You could have spent your days happily with George, enjoying a good life. Why did you insist on coming back here?"

"I'm glad you asked. I came back because I can't stand the thought of you and Charles living happily together!" Holley spat, with pure contempt in her eyes. She gave a wild cackle and told Sheryl, "When mom died, I made a vow. As long as I still breathe, I will never let you lead an easy life."

Holley smiled bitterly and continued, "Do you want to know what mom told me before she died? She told me to never let you get away. And so here I am, back to make your life miserable, dear sister."

"Is that so?" Sheryl couldn't hold back a dry laugh when she heard Holley's words.

To think that her own biological mother would say such things on her deathbed. Even though she had not had a good relationship with her mother, it still came as a shock to her.

Holley looked back at Sheryl with a curious look. She asked inquisitively, "It's been so many years. Don't you ever feel guilty at nights before you go to sleep? No matter what, she was still your mother. She carried you in her tummy for 9 months and suffered through labor to give birth to you. She loved you and cared for you. Aren't you afraid karma will come for you because of the way you treated her?"

Sheryl gazed into Holley's eyes confidently. She didn't feel threatened by her at all. "I did feel sad at first. But I kept reminding myself that she reaped what she sowed. She was asking for trouble in the first place. It may be too late for her, but it's still not too late for you. You still

d someone to support her now that she had left George. That was why she went for Mr. Shen, one of the most influential people in Y City. How ironic that of all the people she could have chosen, she chose a man who practically worshipped Charles, one of her most hated people.

Judging from Holley's expression and her reaction, Sheryl knew that not only was she right, she could also guess exactly what was going through Holley's mind. Although Holley was still furious with her, Sheryl still felt like laughing at how ridiculous the situation was.

But instead of laughing, she looked right into Holley's eyes and said, "I really don't understand what's going through that thick brain of yours. You practically had it all when you were with George. He's young, good-looking and rich. Most importantly, he adores you and would do anything for you. You could have such a good life with him. Take a good look at the man you've chosen to replace him. A fat, sulky man like a huge overgrown baby. Let me give you some sisterly advice. Don't wait till George has found someone else. Because if he has, it'll be too late to cry for what you've lost."

Sheryl's words were crystal clear and Holley found herself getting slightly uncomfortable. But somehow, she managed to summon a huge amount of self-confidence and she replied cooly, "Mind your own business. There's absolutely no way in hell that George would leave me."

"Are you sure?" Sheryl mocked in a singsong tone like they always used to when they were kids. "Look Holley, I really do have better things to do. I'm not going to waste my time here arguing with you. Take your time planning your revenge and when you're ready, you know where to find me. Right now though, I really need to get to work and you need to accompany your Mr. Shen, right?"
