Sheryl reached the doorway to the roof. Phoebe dashed towards her and whispered, "Ms. Xia, Lancy insisted on meeting you. Please be careful!"

"I got this," Sheryl said and glanced towards Lancy who was standing at the edge of the roof.

There were several police officers around Lancy, but they kept a safe distance from her. Every time someone drew closer, she would scream and threaten to jump. So, nobody dared to approach her.

"Miss Lan, please stay calm. Don't be irrational. Nothing is more important than your own life. You are in grave danger now. If you have any problems, please talk to us. Get off the edge. Stay with us!" one of the policewomen said to Lancy, trying to persuade her out of suicide.

As a police officer, she had encountered similar situations many times. But Lancy was the craziest one she had ever come across.

Before the police had reached the location, they had a general idea about Lancy's case. As far as they knew, the injury on her face wasn't severe at all. They didn't understand why she would choose to give up her own life for such a trivial issue.

Lancy was untouched by their pleas. She stared at the people around her with crazy eyes and a contorted face.

"Bring Sheryl here. I must meet her now. Go and get her!" Lancy muttered slowly at first, and then started yelling at the police.

The officers looked at each other in speechless despair. Left with no other choice, they decided to comply with her wish.

If they did anything to piss her off, she might end up jumping off the roof.

"Ms. Xia, what should we do? She keeps asking for you," Phoebe said in a worried tone.

Sheryl was well aware of the situation at that moment. She was confused as to why Lancy insisted on meeting her at the cost of her life.

Was she some kind of sworn enemy to Lancy without even realizing it? Or did Lancy have a bigger plan that required her presence?

Anyhow, she decided not to be a coward and hide behind other people. Even if Lancy meant to put her in trouble, she couldn't find it in herself to see a lif

ance. She could annoy Lancy and pull more information out of her.

"I'm saying, you are a lucky woman. You don't have to die alone," Lancy taunted. Then she started to laugh again, but Sheryl could feel a hint of sadness in her maddened eyes.

She felt that Lancy was in some kind of desperate situation at that moment, like she had no choice. She wondered if Lancy was unwilling to jump, deep in her heart. Was she being threatened by someone?

As Sheryl was thinking, Lancy pulled her sleeve again. She almost tumbled this time, and was very close to falling off the edge.

"My God, Ms. Xia!" Phoebe screamed from the doorway.

Sheryl's face went pale, and her feet shook in fear. After sometime, she managed to stabilize herself, daring not to move even slightly.

Around them, the police were terribly nervous too. However, they realized that Lancy wasn't letting go of Sheryl no matter what happened.

"Lancy, we don't know each other, and we don't have anything against each other. I understand if you want to end your own life, but why do you want to kill me too?" Sheryl asked coldly.

"Why? Ha! You are right! I don't need to kill you, I don't need to kill myself either! But you know what? We all have just this one life. But if I want to save another life, I have to kill you first," Lancy snapped viciously as she glared at Sheryl with venomous eyes.
