Despite their noticeable age gap, Melissa decided to make friends with Leila. She often tried to talk to Leila, but the latter frequently talked about Charles with her for some reason.

Sometimes, Leila talked about Sheryl, but what she said about Sheryl was all lies. Since she kept bad-mouthing Sheryl, Melissa had a negative impression of her. She believed that Sheryl was a deceitful woman, and this image was deeply rooted in Melissa's mind.

"Aunt Melissa, do you have any relatives?" Leila probed.

"Me?" Melissa smiled reluctantly. "I have no relatives but a son. He doesn't know that I'm still alive. Maybe he won't even recognize me if I stand in front of him."

She just smiled bitterly at the mention of her son.

"So…what are you going to do after you get out of the prison?" Leila asked. Her question was met with silence. "If you have nowhere to live, you can live in my house. I have a small apartment and it's very tidy. There is no one else in my family, so you can live there if you'd like," Leila offered.

"You see, I still have to stay here for at least three years." When Melissa still said nothing, she finally added, "I don't know when I will come back to my house. You can live there to keep an eye on the house for me."

"I'm afraid I can't accept that. It's inappropriate," Melissa frowned. "You know almost nothing about me. How can you be reassured enough to let me live in your house?"

"Of course I am reassured," Leila smiled. "I have no relatives. I'm lucky to have met you here. I even thought you were my mother. You can live in my house if you have no other place to live, so please don't take it as a burden because it's just a simple help from me."

"Will it bother you too much?" Melissa asked with concern.

Leila just smiled and shook her head.

"No, no. It won't bother me at all." A moment of silence passed between them. "Aunt Melissa, I just hope you can come bac

saw her exhausted state. "What's wrong with you? This is not your first time to hold a wedding. Why did you get so nervous?" she asked Isla with great concern.

"You're right. It's not my first time to hold a wedding. But, don't forget that this is a special wedding. George didn't invite too many guests, but everyone of them is a big shot."

Isla cleared her throat and continued, "Moreover, they specifically told us to stop Holley from causing trouble at any cost. Don't you know your sister's nature? She is really hard to deal with."

Now, Sheryl couldn't help but laugh at what Isla just said.

"Why are you laughing?" Isla asked in confusion. "If Holley comes here, she will try her best to mess this wedding up. To be honest, I think George and his family are really weird. If they don't want her to cause trouble, why did they invite her to attend? It's really hard to stop her when she knows about the truth."

In return, Sheryl refrained from laughing at Isla's rant. "So…you stayed up for one night because of this?" she asked instead.

"One night?" Isla cast Sheryl a tired glance. "It's more than one night. Actually, I always couldn't fall asleep ever since you agreed to prepare this event. I even had dreams where Holley destroyed the wedding. It was horrible!"
