It was Charles' fourth day in the hospital and he still hadn't seen Sheryl. The doctor told him that she had made an appearance while his operation was being done, but then left.

His thoughts were driving him crazy. 'Why has she not come to see me yet? Did I do anything wrong? Is she no longer concerned about me or my well-being?' All he could do was force a smile and hope for the best.

What Charles truly wanted to do was ring the nurse and have her help him call Sheryl. But as he continued to lay there in thought, he decided against it. He wouldn't know what to say if she answered.

When Charles had his accident, the only thing on his mind was Sheryl. All he kept thinking was that if he survived, he would love her for the rest of his life.

But now, having made it through the brink of death, Charles found it difficult to undo the knot in his heart caused by those rumors.

He was starting to worry that maybe he didn't have a place in Sheryl's heart anymore. 'What if she doesn't love me as much as she used to?' he thought to himself.

Suddenly, Charles could hear loud voices and chaotic footsteps approaching the door of the ward.

It was Charles' hysteric mother, Melissa.

Hearing that her precious son was in a car accident, she had rushed through the hospital to see him, even though her own body wasn't completely healed.

"Charles, are you all right? What happened? Tell me how the accident occurred. I've been so worried!" Melissa said quickly as she sat down in front of his bed. The traumatized look in her eyes instantly turned to shock at the sight of Charles, who was lying in the hospital bed, weak and pale.

"Mom, why did you come here? You're not in good health yet. The doctor said he'd discharge me soon. I'm fine," Charles comforted Melissa.

She only had one son, so if something were to have gone wrong, Melissa didn't think she'd be able to live with the results. Hearing Charles' comforting words, Melissa sobbed in relief and said, "Oh Charles, I'm so glad you're alright." Without wiping her tears, she began busily inspe

it. Tell me, do you actually have a boyfriend?"

Hearing Cora's question, Cassie was stunned. She didn't know how to tell her best friend her relationship with Nick clearly.

Cassie thought of Nick as her boyfriend, but their relationship was definitely not reliable or stable. Nick had never officially said she was his girlfriend, let alone take her out to meet his friends.

Cassie frowned and looked at her plate. Seeing her reaction, Cora was suspicious that if there was something wrong between Cassie and Nick. But she knew Cassie didn't want to talk about it, so she stopped pushing it.

Having a guess that Cassie might be unhappy in his relationship with Nick now, Cora changed the topic immediately. Although she shouldered the mysterious task of her elder brother Jordan who also liked Cassie, now what she should do was accompany her best friend.

After lunch, Cora went to see Jordan in the ward, bringing some food for her brother.

"The food here isn't even comparable to what we eat at home. If you don't like it, you could choose to go home and eat," Cora mocked playfully, seeing her brother frown as he opened the box of food.

Jordan glared at his sister in response. But he suddenly thought he still wanted his sister to help him know more about Cassie. So he said in a gentle tone, "Cora, my dear sister, what about that thing I asked you last time?"
