Sheryl hadn't returned yet. She was probably still in the hospital. Was she waiting for Leila to wake up?

Sheryl and Nancy were the only two that knew about Leila was being poisoned. 'I must do something to make others believe Sheryl poisoned Leila!' Melissa thought.

A streak of gloom flashed through her eyes but soon disappeared.

She thought about the situation for a moment and immediately got out her cellphone to make a call.

The person on the other end of the line simply asked her," Mrs. Lu, how can I help you this time? What would you like to report now?"

"A family scandal," Melissa said these two words at ease. She was way too calm to be taken seriously.

"A family scandal, Mrs. Lu? Did I hear correctly?"

"Oh, enough with the unnecessary questions. Listen, what I'm going to tell you right now is important..." Melissa opened her mouth. She paused for a second and then slowly explained her plans.

The man on the other end of the line listened patiently. As he waited for her to finish her story, a spur of excitement appeared on his face. Raising his eyebrows several times, he replied, "Okay, well, this is definitely big news. Thank you for sharing your 'family scandal, ' Mrs. Lu."

"Just keep your mouth shut. Remember, you never heard it from me. If you do, you'll suffer the consequences," Melissa said coldly.

"Yes, of course. I am aware."

At the police station

After careful consideration, Holley finally made the decision to confess her guilt. She had it in her mind that Rachel wouldn't let her down.

As Rachel kept defending herself, Holley's voice suddenly came out.

"It was I who accidentally killed Lance. It was all my fault and not Rachel's! She had nothing to do with it."

Upon hearing this, both Rachel and the police were shocked. Holley's voice was so loud that her confession echoed in the interrogation room.

Rachel stared at Holley in confusion. At this point, she felt strange, as though she had become a complete stranger to her.

There was a warm flutter in her chest that left Rachel speechless. Suddenly, tears filled her eyes.

She never expected Holley to take the blame for Lance's death.

She thought they were always at odds with each other, but she was surprised that Holley took all the blame on her.

"Holley, you..." Rachel was crying and at th

like the best thing for her to do would be to run away. As for Holley...

At that moment, all she wanted to do was forget about Holley. She admitted to herself that her thoughts were mean, but what could she possibly do?

On the other hand, Holley was at the police station. Lying down, she tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep.

She felt extremely upset as she recalled whether or not placing her life in Rachel's hands, was a good idea.

She acknowledged just how indifferent and irresponsible Rachel actually was. She was scared that Rachel's promise was on the spur of the moment. She was even more afraid that Rachel would leave this country.

Actually, she did know Rachel well. Perhaps it was because they were similar. They somehow always managed to perceive each other accurately.

The next day, before sunrise, Rachel arrived at the airport. She booked a ticket to fly abroad.

She seemed restless and tense, as though she was running from something.

Approaching the security corridor, Rachel saw a group of people patrolling the airport in armed police uniforms.

Even though she tried to calm herself down, Rachel fled with a guilty conscience as soon as she realized them walking her way.

In her empty house, Rachel sat in the middle of the living room and immediately burst into tears.

She wanted to evaporate all of her grievances, fears and guilt for Holley through crying.

Did it really make sense to escape like this and live like a rat in a sewer all her life?

Was this really the life she wanted for herself?
