It was as if a heavy weight was tied around Charles' heart, which increased his burdens. How he wished he could wake his mother up and tell her to never ever hurt his wife and kids again, but his gut feeling told him to find Sheryl and check how she was doing now. She must be sulking and quite upset. He needed to make her happy first. He couldn't afford to let her get sick a second time, especially when things started to get better.

A bitter smile cracked his lips when he walked to their bedroom. He felt powerless amidst all the family affairs.

It took him all his strength to push the door open. He was greeted by complete silence. Only the light of the dim lamp on the table lit the room, and his wife wasn't in the bed as usual.

Charles' heart missed a beat. With a bated breath, he looked around the balcony, the bat

to him, but today had gone differently. To his relief, Sheryl treated the matter like a different person. It was the best outcome that could happen, that he didn't expect it even in his dreams.

"No, I won't," Sheryl said softly. She took her hand from his and continued, "But I have one condition. It doesn't matter how bad Melissa treats me, but not my kids. I hope that was the last time she hurt them. You must promise that."

"I know, and I promise," Charles said without second thoughts. "I've learned the whole situation from Nancy, so now I know who should be blamed. Please trust me, Sher. I'll talk to her first thing tomorrow morning. She'll be prohibited from bringing her guests home again, to play cards under this ceiling. All the things that bothered you will never be seen in this house again. This is my promise!"
