The doctor realized how serious Cassie's words were. It would definitely affect the hospital's reputation. After all, those were their patients Cassie was referring to.

And if it would be proven correct, it would be the biggest scandal of the year. Who would want to bring their loved ones to a hospital where its staff poisoned the patients anyway? No one would trust the hospital and its doctors any more.

Therefore, the doctor thought it would be a good idea to check her story out. The sooner the truth came out, it would be better for everyone. "Okay, I will test the medicine right away. I will let you know as soon as the result comes out."

Sheryl and Cassie looked at each other and nodded at the doctor.

"Would it be okay if we just stay here and wait for the result? We can't do anything else anyway, since I'm so occupied by this," asked Sheryl. The doctor agreed. Sheryl sat in the waiting area, together with Cassie, who had asked for a half-day leave to accompany her.

Half an hour later, the doctor was walking towards them with the result in his hand. Sheryl and Cassie stood up and walked towards him. When the doctor was in a hearing distance, safe to talk without anybody overhearing him, he said, "We found a trace of a poison in the medicine with an incubation period of one week. On the second week, the poison will start to kick in. People who were injected with it will die within days. If that happens, there is nothing we can do to help them."

It surprised Cassie. She knew Lillian was a shady character, and that Lillian might do something to hurt Sheryl. But it never occurred to her that Lillian's real objective was to kill Sheryl. Cassie really found the situation confusing since she knew Sheryl had nothing against Lillian. Moreover, Sheryl was always nice to people around her. She was sure Sheryl would never do something to hurt Lillian's feelings.

Figuring out Lillian's motive was number one on Cassie's list. And, she should find it out as soon as possible. Who the hell would know what and when Lillian's next move would be? Sheryl and she were vulnerable starting right at the moment. They weren't safe until this was solved.

A shiver ran down Sheryl's spine, too. She thought that Lillian was a nice professional nurse who would take good care of her patients. But now, everything changed after she found out that Lillian tri

Charles had just tucked Clark and Shirley in. He was so exhausted. Beads of sweat rolled down his forehead. It was at this moment that he realized how much it was for Sheryl to take good care of the two kids.

As he was walking out of the kids' bedroom, his phone rang. He took out his phone and looked at the screen. It was an unknown number. He was contemplating whether to answer the call or not. But, the phone continued to ring. In the end, he decided to answer it.

"Hello, good evening. May I speak to Mr. Lu, please?" the director asked anxiously on the other end of the line. The idea of telling Charles that one of his staff in the hospital tried to poison Sheryl freaked him out.

"This is Charles Lu speaking. Who's on the line?"

"I'm the director of the hospital where your wife, Mrs. Lu, is staying."

Charles' heart jumped out of his chest. He was so afraid that something bad had happened to Sheryl. Concerned, he asked, "Is there something wrong with Sheryl?"

Gathering all the courage the director could summoned within himself, he answered, "No, no, no, no. Don't worry. Everything is fine with Mrs. Lu. It's just that...there was an accident earlier today which I think you need to know."

Releasing slowly the breath Charles was holding, he felt so relieved when he learned that Sheryl was doing okay.

"What accident?"

"One of the nurses tried to poison Mrs. Lu. Fortunately, Mrs. Lu found out right on time. No damage was done." Nervously, the director waited for Charles' answer. He knew what he said would not make the situation better.
