Everybody felt strange. It was obvious to them that Lancy was murdered. If they didn't get to the bottom of what was going on, they knew that Charles wouldn't spare them.

All of them were clearly well aware about the relationship between Pearson and Charles. Therefore, they knew that failing to find the murderer would get them into trouble.

"Get to work, now!" Vincent commanded. Everybody scurried back to work.

The following morning, Charles and his family were sitting around the table to have breakfast. Suddenly, his phone rang.

He immediately checked the caller ID before answering it and saw that it was Pearson. He then glanced at Sheryl subconsciously. Once he noticed that she was busy helping the kids and not paying any attention to him, he answered the phone while walking to the window.

"Hi, Pearson! How's it going?" Charles asked as soon as he answered the phone.

Pearson was in the middle of a dilemma. He was unsure about how to tell Charles about Lancy's death. After all, Charles had given him money to help save his wife. Pearson had promised to help Charles find the culprit, yet no one expected for it to turn out like this.

However, Pearson decided to tell the truth. "Charles, you need to be prepared for what I'm about to tell you. I have some bad news."

Pearson was an experienced policeman, which startled Charles even more. Since Pearson asked him to be prepared, he complied and forced himself to remain calm.

After a few seconds, he said, "Okay, I'm ready. You can tell me now."

"Well, Lancy was killed in her cell early this morning. The policemen who were watching her were also injured quite badly. They were laying on the floor when we discovered them this morning. We only found them when we arrived at the office today." He then added, "Charles, I'm so sorry. It's my fault. The murderer wouldn't have had the chance to take another life if I had paid more attention to the case."

Charles was shocked. He wasn't expecting to hear this. He remained silent for a moment. 'What did Pearson just say? Lancy was murdered? She was killed early this

too. But since Pearson was the deputy director, Charles didn't want to embarrass him.

However, he agreed with Sheryl. "I'm doubting it too. I think there must be a spy among them."

"I agree. This mole must be undercover. It's the police station, for God's sake," Sheryl added.

"All we can do now is find both the murderer and the mole. Finding them both isn't going to be easy. Besides, I haven't told Pearson about the fact that I'm doubting the murder yet. I'm not sure how to tell him," Charles said, feeling awkward.

Sheryl nodded. She was aware about the relationship between Pearson and Charles. After a while, she seemed to remember something and said, "I have an idea. Let's not tell anyone. You can send someone to monitor the police station. Since there is a mole, he is bound to slip up eventually."

"Honestly, I don't think we have any other option. We won't tell anyone about this. After all, the last thing we want is more trouble. Good idea."

They looked at each other seriously. Finally, both of them could see hope in each other's eyes.

At the hospital

Cassie ran into a man she wasn't expecting to meet after visiting the ward.

Once she laid eyes on him, she looked annoyed. Turning around, she was about to walk away.

"Cassie!" Jordan shouted as he followed and stopped her.

"What are you doing here?" Cassie lifted her head and stared at him sharply.
