Thinking about his mother's reaction, Clark suddenly felt very unhappy. "Mom, can't you recall what I've just said to you? The last thing you should be doing is avoiding these problems. I understand that you don't want to forgive Dad, but at least you should give him an opportunity to explain himself. Otherwise, he will feel so sad and like he has been wronged."

Seeing Sheryl keeping silent, Clark began to shake her hand gently, in his attempt to convince her once more. "Mom, please, just let dad explain."

"Oh, fine...I'll listen to you and hear what your father has to say," replied Sheryl helplessly. She thought that if she persisted on saying no, Clark would keep nagging her until she agreed.

"That's alright, Mom," Clark answered in a happy tone as he patted Sheryl's hand lovingly. "So, since you've agreed, you can go upstairs and have a talk with him now. I will wait here and eat pizza with Shirley," Clark added.

Sheryl didn't have any other reason to refuse Charles anymore. Following him, she went into the bedroom upstairs.

"Sher, I've seen the video you sent me. I'm really sorry. I didn't know what the truth was, and that was why I questioned the situation before." Charles got straight to the point and expressed his apology to Sheryl. He felt sorry for treating her the way he did.

He didn't want to elaborate on other trivial things, and especially not on something that didn't matter. He also knew that Sheryl would feel more impatient and disappointed with him, if he kept going on about senseless things, instead of apologizing up front.

"Well, now that you've learned about the truth, we don't have anything else to talk about, now do we?" Sheryl responded to Charles' apology in a cold and relentless voice. She didn't feel like she was ready to reply to his apology, nor accept it. She wasn't the kind of person who liked to complain about how hurt she felt by another person.

"Sher, I'm so sorry. I know that you feel wronged, and I know that it's all my fault. Nevertheless, I promise that after supper, I will tell my mom that our family of four will not live in Dream Garden from this point forward. I'll find another incredible home, and we can just move out. I've been thinking about it for a long time. What do you think?" Charles spoke his mind. Once he learned the truth, he made the decision on behalf of him and his family to move out.

"What? You want us to move out? Wait...Aren't you afraid of your mother's disapproval?" Sheryl never thought that Charles would make the mindful decision to make such a sacrifice, especially for her sake. She was surprised but relieved at the same time.

"Of course, I know that she won't agree with my decision. However, even though she do


"I'm fine, Charles. Don't worry about me." Melissa proceeded to put on the mask of a sensible mother in front of Charles.

Charles paused for a while. He behaved so not because he was moved by his mother's thoughtfulness towards him, but because he recalled in his mind how she had treated Sheryl in the video.

He couldn't grasp that his mother had a split-personality.

"Mom, I have something to negotiate with you. It's quite important." After a deep sigh for plucking up to his mother, Charles came straight to the point.

"What kind of thing? Just name it, son. As long as it is within my reach, I will agree with it. After all, I am your mother and you are my son," Melissa replied in a pampered voice.

"Mom, I have talked to Sheryl. We've decided to move out with Shirley and Clark tomorrow." Charles looked into Melissa's eyes as he told her the news in a calm voice.

Melissa was taken aback at Charles' request and responded in a surprised voice, "What? Why do you want to move out? Do you feel uncomfortable living here?"

"Mom, believe me...That's not the problem. It's not about us being comfortable or not. I just don't think that you can get along with Sheryl. Besides, at your age, I want you to live a happy and relaxed life.

In the beginning, it was my very own ignorance that caused today's situation. It is often said that it's very difficult for a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law get along with each other. Hearing this kind of saying at first, I didn't take it seriously. Otherwise, you wouldn't have almost lost your life with the suicide attempt. So, from my point of view, Sher shouldn't live with you here any longer. After all, the most important thing right now is your psychological and physical health. Don't you think so?" Charles began to explain to Melissa calmly.
