"You go first, Sher. Is there something you want to tell me?" Charles murmured tenderly, his eyes focusing on her attentively.

Sheryl raised her hand and started to caress the hair on his temple. For a while now, she had been thinking of what to tell him, but now she felt all the words were powerless. She loved this man, and he loved her. That was the most important thing.

"Nothing. I just…" She hesitated, looking him in the eye.

"You what?" Charles pushed her deliberately, but she moved closer, close enough for him to sense all her love and allow it to melt his heart.

Charles' hot breath swept over Sheryl's cheeks, making her heart bounced wildly inside her chest. She was naturally a graceful person, and seldom felt embarrassed. But now she was nervous to death, which seemed ridiculous. Charles was the most familiar man to her, and he respected her in every aspect. She was guilty of treating him wrongly the last two days. The things that happened in their household were all Melisa's fault, and it had nothing to do with him. And now, Charles might think that she was making a fuss out of nothing.

Truth to be told, she thought the same way about herself. She felt like she was a little girl who kept making noises to catch the grown-up's attention, and of course, Charles was that grown-up she depended on.

"Honey?" Charles whispered. He then let out a deep sigh and rubbed his chin against her head, holding her even tighter. He knew exactly what was running on her mind. Calamity is man's touchstone. Right now, he was just glad that she was safe and sound.

"Please don't be mad at me again! I love you more than anything in this world. I respect all your decisions, even if sometimes I don't agree with them."

Sheryl sank deeper in his arms, tears welling up in her eyes. She had always known that Charles wouldn't say any bad words about her because he loved her, and that was why she felt secured no matter what she had done.

"Since that's all in the past, then why do you still feel tensed around me? Let's move on and focus on the bright future ahead of us." Charles held her face and kissed her. "You're my wife, the one I want to share my life with. We have two adorable kids. You have no idea how thankful I am for that. Both of us will make mistakes, but I promise I won't blame you and will always take your side. If I realize that I'm wrong, I'll review it myself and try my best to make it up to you. Please give me some time when that happens. Please always remember that I love you and I will never do anything to hurt you. Don't doubt my love, my darling!" Charles said slowly.

Listening to Charles, Sheryl felt like she was

, I'm listening," Sheryl replied, closing her eyes and still in his arms.

"That crazy woman has been taken to the police station, and they want you to come over and give your testimony. I rejected them this morning because you looked so tired. But you have to go another time," Charles narrated.

"I know," Sheryl said softly. "I'll go to the police station. I'm fine. Don't worry." She just stayed still, her eyes still closed.

"Are you sure about it? I can give them a call to postpone it." Charles sounded worried.

"No, there is no need. I can manage. I'm alive and kicking now. Besides, I want to put an end to it as soon as possible. What did she confess?" she replied calmly.

Charles nodded. "She confessed that her reason why she wanted to jump off had nothing to do with you and your company, but refused to take responsibility for the accident in the shopping mall. Thus, the police had to treat it as an accident, due to lack of evidence and witness."

"It was by no means an accident!" Sheryl shouted as she left his arms. "If they said that it was an accident before Lancy plotted to jump off that building, I might have thought the same. But now, definitely not! Someone was behind all of that, and I am their target!"

Charles knitted his brows and said, "The police won't think the same if we can't provide a solid evidence."

"Did they check the footage during that time? I believe that mall has a CCTV," Sheryl asked.

But Charles shook his head and replied, "Yes, they watched it, but it was weird that it broke down during that time. So they didn't find anything useful."

"What? Things will be more complicated then. I don't think it was a coincidence. It must be the work of the people behind Lancy!" Sheryl exclaimed, sounding aggrieved.
