With a steady flow of uneasiness in her heart, Holley held the invitation in her hand. Staring at Donna as she disappeared in the distance, she had a nagging feeling that something was wrong.

She shook her head to try and shake off the negative thought from her head. After she cleared her mind, she headed back to her apartment.

On her way home, she received a message which contained flight information. She learned that the woman she was going to united with was supposed to be arriving the next afternoon.

Holley decided to pick her up at the airport after attending the appointment with Donna at noon.

She couldn't hide the excitement she felt as she thought about her strong ally.

Meanwhile, in a prison in Y City

Leila had been sentenced to three years. Since she had gotten arrested, she had done a lot of reflecting. In spite of that fact, she still harbored strong resentments towards Sheryl.

'That bitch stole Charles and Charlie from me. But now I am a prisoner and there's nothing I can do to get them back.

I am not going anywhere for three years,' she said to herself.

She was anxious to get out and retaliate against Sheryl in order to win back her beloved man and "son". But she had to wait until her release. She understood that a lot of things could and would happen in three years.

"Is there something on your mind?" another inmate asked. She was an older woman in her fifties, with whom Leila shared a cell with. Although she wore the same orange uniform as everyone else, she had an air of grace and sophistication about her. In spite of the fact that she was behind bars, she always seemed so cool, calm and collected. Not allowing anything to ruffle her feathers.

Since Leila had been put in jail, she hadn't really spoken to anyone. She mostly kept to herself. However, today was different. She wanted someone to confide in.

"I was thinking back on my past," Leila replied with a hint of a smile. She walked up to the middle-aged woman and asked, "Do you think that the world will ever change?"

"Wow..." The woman gazed out the window with longing eyes as s

oment I first laid eyes on him."

Leila chuckled as she recalled, "When I first saw him, he wore a white T-shirt and slacks. His arched, full eyebrows framed his extremely captivating eyes. He also has long, curly eyelashes and a delicate nose that made him even more alluring. Since then, I had been madly in love with him."

"Were you able to tell him how you were feeling about him?" Melissa Shen asked curiously. 'Nowadays young people are more bold and active when they meet someone they have an affinity for. I guess, if she made her feeling known to the object of her desire and the feelings were mutual, that they could develop a longstanding relationship.' she pondered.

Leila gave a woeful smile and replied, "When we first met each other, I was a just the girl at the front desk. That day, he came to the office to take care of a few things. I noticed that there was one woman, in particular, that he paid much more attention to than any other person in the office. I thought he might have a thing for her, but later I found out that she was his wife."

"A married man?" Melissa Shen asked in surprise.

"Yes..." Leila took a long calming breath before she continued, "When I first learned this, I was extremely upset. I knew that I had to do something to make him mine. You know what? Before I knew it, I made the decision to fight for my love and no matter the outcome. I just knew I had to try."
