So when Cassie learned that Sheryl wasn't getting on well, she rushed to visit Sheryl in hope of making her feel better.

"Cassie, thank you. Don't worry. I'm fine." Sheryl let out a sigh and continued to say, "Every family has its problems. But don't be worried about me. I can handle it."

Sheryl wasn't going to tell Cassie what had happened to the Lu family. She hid it from Cassie, as well as her best friend, Isla.

The kidnappers were still holding Shirley. If too many people knew about it, Sheryl was afraid it might provoke them and they might harm her daughter. If that were to happen, she would never be able to forgive herself and be haunted by the regret and agony for the rest of her life.

Just imagining that possibility made her tremble with fear. Sheryl couldn't imagine her life without Shirley by her side.

"Sher, you don't have to tell me. It's okay." Cassie saw the sorrow in Sheryl's eyes, and it broke her heart to see her so sad.

She could sense that Sheryl was hiding something. She didn't want to pry since Sheryl was reluctant to talk about it.

"Sher, let me know if you're not feeling well. I know some doctors here. I can ask one of them to check on you,"

Cassie said out of concern.

Sheryl nodded her head. She was touched and said, "Cassie, you're so kind. Nick is lucky to have you as his girlfriend. By the way, how are you two going? Does he treat you well? If he dares mistreat you, I'll deal with him."

Sheryl noticed that Cassie's expression had changed at what she said.

Cassie wanted to speak to a reliable friend about what happened between her and Nick for a long time. She needed a shoulder to cry on.

Since Cora lived with her, she hoped to share her concerns with Cora. However, she couldn't tell her too many things about Nick because of Cora's relationship with Jordan.

So Cassie had been bottling it up inside her. She had the urge to tell Sheryl all about it to vent her dejection and feelings of impotence

ave dinner with another woman!"

Cassie had become so angry when she explained it to her. Sheryl looked at her awkwardly and felt bewildered. She didn't know how to console Cassie and soothe the pain she felt.

"Maybe that woman was just Nick's client."

"Client? I don't believe it." Cassie refused to accept that possibility immediately. "Sher, to be frank with you, I saw Nick in a cinema the other day. He was with a woman."

"What? Is that true? Are you sure you're not mistaken?" Sheryl was completely shocked. She didn't believe that Nick was the kind of guy who went to see a movie with another woman alone. It was beyond Sheryl's imagination.

"It's true. I saw it with my own eyes. They were out of my sight in a corner. Otherwise, I would have seen what that woman looked like." Cassie was burning with anger now, and she wanted to let Nick know the consequences of betraying her.

"You should try to calm down. Why don't I give Nick a call? Then I'll let you know when I find out what's going on."

Sheryl tried to reassure her and calm Cassie down.

Cassie composed herself and looked at Sheryl feeling guilty. "Sher, I'm supposed to be comforting you, but I couldn't control myself and have been complaining the whole time. I'm sorry for bothering you with my problems. Please don't be upset with me."
