The moment Sheryl stepped into the room, Nancy rushed to her.

"There you are! They said that Mrs. Lu was kidnapped. Is this true? I am glad you and the kids are safe and sound!" she uttered, sounding a little out of breath. Nancy had her hands crossed in front of her chest, so as to show her relief. She was truly relieved to spot that Shirley and Clark were home with their mother.

"Thank God! Thank God!" she repeated again and again.

Sheryl wanted to smile at Nancy's concern but she couldn't bring herself to do it. The people around couldn't see the turmoil her mind was going through, but her heart was still upset.

It was true that she didn't get along well with Melissa, but at the end of the day, Melissa was Charles' mother. It wasn't right for her to turn a deaf ear at her safety. If something bad had happened to Melissa, it would definitely kill Charles. No one could accept their own mother's tragic death. If Charles couldn't get over it, she and her kids would suffer as well.

"Charles is trying to see what he can do. So please don't worry yourself. Everything will be fine. The only thing we can do is wait patiently." And then, Sheryl patted Nancy on her shoulder so as to calm her. With her eyes, she instructed Clark to take his sister upstairs.

"Nancy, please make something for the kids to eat. I have no appetite so don't bother cooking for me," Sheryl advised and then took a seat on the sofa, losing herself with her miserable thoughts.

'They are asking Charles to arrange ten million in three hours! I bet that is not going to be easy for him. How are we going to get out of this mess?' she thought, with gloom falling upon her face.

Swiftly, she dug into her jean pocket and took out her phone. She clicked on Isla's number but changed her mind before Isla attended it.

Cloud Advertising Company was the fruit of painstaking labor for both Isa and her. It wasn't right for her to draw upon its operating fund for personal reasons. This thought had made her change her mind. However, her phone rang and Isla's name flashed on the screen.

"Sher, I just saw your missed call. May I know why you called? Did you have something important to say?" Isla's concerned voice asked Sheryl.

A crimson red formed on Sheryl's face from embarrassment. But deep down, she also appreciated that her best friend had called back. "I just called to tell you that I'm home now. But Charles' mother is taken away and he's trying to figure out a way to get her back," she replied with some hesitancy.

"What? Are you serious? Someone is finally reaping what she has sown!" Isla exclaimed from the other side of the line. She was a straightforward person and had the tendency to blurt things out without considering the other person's feelings.

Sheryl, however, kept silent for a moment. She had no idea how she should respond to this remark.

Judging from Sheryl's silence, Isla realized she had made a mistake. I

wound redressed with a smile.

"The wound is getting better. And now I'm leaving so the room is all yours!" she added with a naughty smile as she waved her hands at them before leaving and closing the door.

As Nick watched the spectacle before him, he became more happier. He couldn't help but smile from ear to ear, despite Cassie's embarrassment.

"Why are you laughing?" Cassie asked and began to beat him on the shoulder.

"Ouch!" Nick shouted.

"Did I hurt you? I am so sorry! Let me take a look!" Cassie hurriedly reached to inspect it.

Watching how caring she was, Nick decided to take full advantage of his luck. He feigned pain and covered his chest with both the hands. Faintly, he said, "Cassie, I'm afraid that I can't eat by myself now. Would you please help me?"

"Ah stupid! If you want me to feed you, just ask me. There is no need to scare me!" Cassie said looking annoyed. She then moved forward and took his chopsticks. With her gentle hands, she fed him beef. All the while she shook her head, hopelessly.

Suddenly, their eyes caught each other and they burst into laughter.

It was true that the best moment for a couple was when they made each other laugh.

"Are we done with this? Now shall we go for the fruits?" Cassie asked and put down the chopsticks, turning her face to the bag of fruits she had bought.

Nick let out a sigh of content. He felt that his life was finally complete. If someone asked him to name a moment that made him the happiest, then he would undoubtedly mention today.

Cassie peeled an apple, cut it into slices and picked one to feed Nick, but she spotted that Nick was smiling at her like an idiot. Cassie knitted her brows and looked at herself in the mirror. 'There is nothing wrong with my face!' she thought confusedly.

"What are you laughing at, Nick? Do you spot anything funny on my face?" she asked curiously.

"No, you look fabulous!" Nick replied playfully and rubbed his head.
