"Thank you very much, doctor. We should leave now so Cassie can rest." Cora knew she wouldn't get anything out of Cassie, so she decided to leave the room to give Nick and Cassie some alone time.

Cassie's room suddenly fell under a thick silence when Cora and the doctor left.

Both Nick and Cassie didn't say anything. The atmosphere was a little bit awkward. Cassie had been in a coma for so long, and they had so many things to discuss, but they just didn't know where to start. After a long pause, Nick opened his mouth to break the silence, but Cassie beat him to it.

"Do you think that we should be suspicious of Leila? Do you think she's the one who pushed me down the stairs?" Cassie wasn't stupid. While she couldn't exactly remember what had happened, she had a feeling that it had something to do with Leila, but she wasn't 100 percent sure. She couldn't just blame Leila unless she was really sure. It was just a hunch. What if Leila was innocent after all? Cassie didn't want to accuse Leila of anything, especially if she really didn't do anything.

"Yes, we should be suspicious of her. The CCTV monitor showed you following Leila to the rooftop. It showed Leila coming down afterward, but you never came down. No one else was seen going up to the rooftop. Who else would it be, but Leila?" As Nick told Cassie about the CCTV, the image of Cassie falling down the stairs came to him, and it upset him.

"But I can't remember anything." Cassie hated that she couldn't remember anything. How could she not know? How could she not remember?

"That's alright, Cassie. Don't pressure yourself too much. Sooner or later, it'll come to you. Just give it time. What's important is that you're awake now and you're safe. We should just focus on that and be grateful, okay?" Nick pulled Cassie into his arms and comforted her.

Cassie calmed down as she inhaled Nick's familiar scent. It was warm and comforting. Soon, she drifted off to sleep.

Sheryl was very excited when she heard that Cassie had woken up. She went to the hospital to visit Cassie after she got off work.

She felt greatly relieved when she saw Cassie. Her face wasn't as pale anymore, and Cassie seemed to be recovering well. She was almost back to her old energetic self again. However, Sheryl couldn't help but think of Charles. 'Cassie's already woken up. How come Charles is sti

Leila wouldn't leave her alone, and Sheryl was getting pretty tired of it. She needed to stand up to Leila and fight back so that Leila would leave her alone once and for all.

Sheryl left as soon as she had finished speaking. She didn't even wait for Leila to respond. Leila could do nothing except silently watched as Sheryl walked away.

When Leila went inside the hospital, she was fuming.

Sheryl often went to the hospital to visit Charles. Usually, Melissa and Leila would attempt to stop her, but they never succeeded. That night, she was just leaving after visiting Charles.

Melissa had asked Leila to follow Sheryl.

After what happened last time, Leila didn't want to confront Sheryl again but, she had no choice since Melissa had asked her.

"Sheryl, sto…" Leila didn't even finish her sentence. She was too shocked.

Sheryl was confused. She followed Leila's gaze and saw Cassie.

Then Sheryl realized that Leila didn't know that Cassie had woken up. Sheryl could tell how frightened Leila was.

"Oh, I see. You didn't know that Cassie woke up, right?" Sheryl teased Leila.

"I don't know who she is. Why would I care if she woke up or not?" Leila said, feigning calmness even though deep inside, she was panicking.

This was the first time that Sheryl saw Leila like this. If anything, it only convinced her more that it was indeed Leila who had pushed Cassie down the stairs. Once Cassie remembered everything, Leila would finally be put in her place.

After everything that Leila had done, Sheryl wouldn't just let her get away that easily.
