Sheryl thought about it for a moment as Isla finished speaking. She then heaved a deep sigh and told Isla what the doctor had said in full detail. One accident had taken place after another, and Sheryl now began suspecting that she was cursed!

"What? Are you telling me that Cassie might not wake up right away? Oh my god! Are you kidding me?" Isla shouted loudly, still unable to believe her ears. She ran toward Sheryl, her eyes wide as she begged her for an explanation.

On the other hand, Sheryl felt no better than Isla. The doctor's words had stabbed into her heart like daggers. She was so hurt that she nearly couldn't catch her breath from the pain.

The doctor told her that it be a while before Cassie woke up because she was suffering from complications due to oxygen deprivation to the brain. What was worse, she might remain unconscious and be a vegetable for the rest of her life! It would depend on the will of Heaven.

It was a shock to everyone, but they had to accept that it had happened.

Sheryl could never be content to just leave it to the will of Fate to decide to kill or pardon a soul.

Cassie was one of the most important people in her life. Sheryl hated herself for having been unable to protect her from everything that had happened.

After they spoke, Sheryl rested back against the wall as if talking had cost all of her strength. She slowly slid down along the wall and sat on the floor. Nick did likewise because the bad news was just as hard on him.

The three of them were all taken aback by the sudden bad news. It took a long time before they recovered their senses again. Sheryl clutched the couch beside her and struggled to pull herself up to her feet. She walked over to Nick and helped him get up before sitting him down on the couch. She then fetched a cup of water and passed it to him. "Nick, you need to hold on. Cassie needs you, and you must believe that she can make it through this. I haven't lost heart in Charles, after all. First, you need to take care of yourself," Sheryl said, trying to cheer him up.

Nick took Sheryl's words to heart as he sat there. He took a sip of the water to clear his throat and said, "I'm confident about that, Sher. Cassie will wake up, and I'll never allow myself to doubt it."

He then nodded at Sheryl and turned to look at Cassie in determination.

When Nick had finally calmed down, he told Sheryl and Isla what he had seen and heard when they had found Cassie.

Isla was pissed off before Nick had even finished speaking. She narrowed her eyes and balled her hands into fists.

"Are you telling us that Cassie followed Leila to the rooftop? The video then showed Leila returning alone, but you didn't see Cassie come down after that?" Isla asked, just to make sure that she had heard correctly.

Seeing Nick nod in confirmation, she clenched her teeth to avoid snapping. "That woman won't even get to cry before I get my hands on her. I'm going to kill her!"

Isla headed to the door immediately. Sheryl hurriedly told Nick to stay there with Cassie and nodded to him before she ran after Isla. So many things happened so unexpectedly, and they couldn't afford to let Isla face any more danger at that moment.

"Move your ass and get over here, Leila!" Isla sh

er she should go to pack her things or not.

Bernard reached for her hands again and patted them gently. "Relax, Rachel. I'll figure it out later. Please, just trust me. I'll protect you with my life, if need be, so everything will be fine," he promised.

Rachel sat still beside him. Still, her wild heart was not at rest. They were talking about the boss of a hit-man organization. It wouldn't be easy for them to get rid of Tom.

Seeing the anxiety on Rachel's face, Bernard continued, "You need to trust me, Rachel. I know Tom and how it all works. I'll come up with an idea to get us out of this safe and sound."

"Oh, Bernard! All I can depend on in this life is you!" Rachel finally gave him a faint smile after confessing her faith in him.

She was confident that Bernard would never leave her, but the problem was that they were facing a group of professional killers, hot for their blood! It might have been easy for them to hide before, but that had been because Tom didn't know Bernard had spared her life. Now, it would be impossible to hide because Tom knew about them. She forced herself to think hard of a way out. She didn't want to wait here to be killed.

Time was running out for them, whether they liked it or not.

Nick had stayed at the hospital with Cassie. So Sheryl decided not to disturb them. After all, it was better to leave the two of them alone. She went to work before returning later to the hospital to check on how Charles and Cassie were doing that night. Melissa spoke rudely to her every time they ran into each other by accident, but Sheryl had no intention to argue with her. Both of them cared about Charles' well-being, and that was enough to force a truce.

Melissa blocked Sheryl from entering the room the moment she got to Charles' ward.

"What are you doing here? I've told you a thousand times to stay away! I said: Please don't show up here, again. Are you deaf or something? Do you know that your stupid face is making me sick?" Melissa was getting more and more impatient as time passed by, and Charles seemed not to be getting better. Sheryl acted as if she didn't see or hear Melissa at all despite her cruel words.
