After hanging up the phone, Leila condescendingly looked at Sheryl, thinking she was so pathetic. Leila was cold and calculating and showed no sympathy for Sheryl.

Leila was so arrogant and full of herself that she even conjured up an image in her mind of herself holding onto Charles' arm intimately and humiliating Sheryl with a smug look on her face.

Although her perfect image was soon burst when she thought of how sad and worried Charles was about Shirley. She was in love with Charles and couldn't bear the thought of seeing him so grieved. So she decided to change the plan that she had set previously.

With that thought in mind, Leila hastily turned to leave. Before she went, Melissa asked her where she was going, but Leila didn't explain much to her.

She was in a hurry to see the guy that she hired to kidnap Shirley. She was going to ask him to release her.

Leila scurried about with a troubled mind, so she didn't notice that a man was tailing her since the moment she left Dream Garden.

Pulling her cell phone out, she made a call to the guy. However, to her disappointment, she couldn't get through. It was as if he had disappeared off the surface of the earth. Leila suddenly had that sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach that something had gone wrong. She quickly hailed a taxi and went to the place where Shirley was being held captive.

Neither the taxi driver nor Leila had noticed a car following them from a distance.

In the ghetto area of the South Street District, Leila got out of the taxi and dashed toward the house where the man lived. The path leading to the house was uneven and rocky, and Leila stumbled several times after losing her footing because she was wearing a pair of

x, and his eyes were full of concern.

Hearing that, Leila panicked. She could feel her heartbeat racing, and she suddenly lost the color in her face because of fear. She hadn't expected that to happen. Everything seemed to be spiraling out of control.

She tied to suppress the panic she felt and said in an unsteady voice, "Well. Charles, I just remember that I have something urgent to deal with. I have to go back to my bedroom now. Don't worry too much. There must be a solution."

"It's all right. Go and finish your business."

Charles noticed that Leila's expression had changed. With that, he confirmed that Leila was responsible for Shirley's kidnapping, which he hadn't expected.

Things had gone out of Leila's control now. Charles thought about everything that had happened, and it was all caused by that malicious woman. Charles was seething and wanted to kill her himself. However, his hands were tied, and he couldn't risk doing anything just yet. He needed to be patient to find out where Shirley was through Leila.

Leila stumbled into her bedroom as though she had just seen a ghost. She was overwhelmed with panic and fear.
