Charles nodded. "We also need to get evidence. We can't go to the police if we don't have proof because that's all they'll take. It's also the only way to know who the people are behind Lancy."

"You get the point," Sheryl said, annoyed.

It was still early so they decided to go to the police right away. After following routine and protocol, the officers told them, "Mr. and Mrs. Lu, thank you for your cooperation. Our suspect asked to see you before giving her confession. What do you think?"

Sheryl felt her heart slightly jump at this, because she didn't know what to think of this crazy woman who was yet to be trusted.

She quickly glanced at Charles before answering, "Sounds fine to us. Did she mention why she wanted to see us?"

"Nope, she didn't talk that much. She was just waiting for you guys, I think," the officer replied, shrugging his shoulders.

Sheryl agreed. "All right. Let's go. I hope we can be of a little help."

Even though she didn't really want to see Lancy anymore lest she be reminded of what happened on the roof, she figured it was better for her to get some closure from Lancy by asking what really happened. Besides, Sheryl wasn't planning on making things worse, because she wasn't like that.

The visiting room was divided into two by a translucent glass. The visitors and the inmates sat on either side. There were phones so that they could talk to each other. Sheryl sat on one side with Charles next to her while Lancy sat on the other.

"They told me that you wanted to see us. Well, we're here," Sheryl said flatly.

"I'm sorry, Ms. Xia!" Lancy blurted out, fixing her gaze at Sheryl.

Sheryl let out a heavy sigh. To her, Lancy was an idiot. She could still remember all the stupid things she'd done and said. She recalled how this woman almost dragged her off the roof of the hospital building. Lancy had traumatized Sheryl so much that an apology just wasn't enough.

A single apology just wouldn't do it no matter how hard Lancy begged.

Sheryl was quiet for a while just looking into Lancy's eyes before she said, "If you're here to ask for my forgiveness, I can't give that to you and that means we're done here. I'm not accepting your apology and we're leaving now."

Lancy

plan! I just wanted to make more noise so I could make a scene. I'd never jump. Jarvis is still alive. I'd never leave him. You need to believe me, Ms. Xia!" Lancy begged.

"It doesn't matter if I believe you or not. What matters is you broke the law and you're going to get punished for that. So why does it matter if I believe you or not?" Sheryl said. That was facts and no one could do anything to change that.

Lancy smiled and said, "Yes, I know. I'll get the punishment that I deserve. I do, I deserve it and it's my fault."

She paused for a second and continued, "Look, I'm already in jail, so can I ask a favor from you? Please help Jarvis. He has nothing to do with this. He deserves better. Could you please help him? I know you're good people."

It was only then that Sheryl and Charles finally understood why Lancy wanted to talk to them. She wanted them to continue paying for Jarvis' treatments.

Sheryl was always kind. If she'd known this before, she would've happily covered the costs of his treatment. She hesitated for a moment and said, "I can help him, but I need you to tell me something."

"Whatever you want, Ms. Xia. As long as you can help Jarvis, I'll tell you anything," Lancy promised.

"Okay. Then tell me who paid you to set me up, what his name is and his location," Sheryl asked without missing a beat.

At that moment, Charles fixed his gaze on Lancy waiting for her to respond. She would make things a lot easier for them if she just told them.
