Nancy nodded silently. She felt a little moved. 'Charles is so thoughtful and he's so nice to Sheryl," she thought to herself.

"Mr. Lu, are you sure you don't want to rest first?" asked Nancy.

"No. I've got something to deal with at the company. And I won't be coming home for dinner. Please tell Sher," Charles answered. After that, Charles headed upstairs.

Nancy watched as he headed upstairs and sensed something was wrong. 'Why do I sense something wrong? Are they fighting again?' Nancy thought to herself. 'They have to ask me to relay messages to one another, but Charles really seems to care about Sher. But, he doesn't want to let her know? This is so confusing.'

When Sheryl sent Clark and Shirley to school, she also apologized to the teacher for failing to pick them up the day before. After that, she headed to work.

Just as she was getting in her car, she received a phone call from Phoebe.

"Ms. Xia, please come to the hospital now! Lancy is on the top of the building. It looks like she wants to kill herself!" Phoebe said anxiously.

Sheryl was surprised when she heard this. 'What on earth is she trying to do again?' Sheryl thought to herself.

She quickly said, "Phoebe, ask someone to stop her. Wait for me."

"No! We can't do anything! Ms. Xia, I'm so scared!" Phoebe sounded like she was about to cry—her voice was shaking and she was choking out sobs.

"What happened? Why? Calm down. Speak slowly, Phoebe," Sheryl said, trying to comfort Phoebe. She grabbed her keys and started the car.

"Lancy's on the roof right now. She's standing on the edge as if she's going to jump!" Phoebe was still sobbing.

Sheryl felt like her heart was going to jump out of her body any minute.

'Is Lancy really planning on killing herself?' she thought to herself.

"Did you call the police? Call the police right now!" Sheryl said nervously. She slammed her foot on the gas pedal.

"Yes, we already did. The police is here but Lancy said that she wants to see you," Phoebe said.

"Alright, I'll be right there in a minute. Tell Lancy to wait for me," Sheryl said. Then she hung up the phone and stepped on the gas. The car sped off.

However, she got stuck in the morning rush. There was heavy traffic everywhere.

"Damn it!" Sheryl cursed, stuck in traffic. If she could, she would've abandoned her car and ran to the hospita


Just as she was about to open her mouth to ask Charles about it, he hung up the phone.

When Sheryl saw the elevator light up, her heartbeat started to quicken and she couldn't figure out a way to calm herself down.

She'd never felt so helpless. She knew that Lancy was stubborn but she never expected Lancy to go this far.

'What if...' Sheryl thought, 'What if I can't give Lancy what she asks for and she jumps off? Or what if she falls by accident?

Oh my God. I can't imagine what it would be like if that happened. What am I going to do if it happens?

And what if I see her fall? I'd never be able to get over that. I don't want to see her jump off the building! Will I see blood? Her broken body? Oh my god! I can't see that. I can't!

Charles, please come sooner. Please!'

Sheryl was losing her mind. She couldn't even think properly. Her only hope now was Charles.

After Charles hung up the call, he pondered on it for a while then he picked up his phone again and dialed another number.

"Hello, Mr. Lu," a man's voice answered, as if he'd been expecting this call.

"I need you to investigate someone for me and I need the results in half an hour," Charles said calmly.

"Okay, Mr. Lu," the man answered.

"I sent the information to your e-mail. Kindly check it," Charles said coolly.

"Yes, I got it," the man answered.

In that short conversation, Charles had already given all the information the man needed. He hung up the phone and started the car again. He turned it around and slammed his foot on the gas pedal speeding off.
