Sheryl was moved. She knew that what Charles had said was enough to show that she was the most important person to him.

"You just need to rest for now. You need your health back. I don't want you to worry about anything else." Sheryl just wanted Charles to rest so she changed the topic.

Meanwhile, Sheryl couldn't help but worry about what Charles had just said.

Would she and Charles have a future?

As she thought this over, a bitter smile appeared on her face.

Charles saw this so he asked in confusion, "Sher, what's wrong?"

"Nothing. I'm just thinking about all that's happened." As Sheryl spoke, there was a deep sadness in her eyes.

She didn't want to make things weird between her and Charles, so she didn't finish what she was going to say. She just wanted to move on from the past. The very least she could do was stay with Charles and talk with him—that was more than enough for her.

"Sher, you're keeping something from me. I'm your husband, and you can tell me anything. You can trust me. I'll listen to you," Charles said.

"I know..." Sheryl was touched, but she couldn't say anything. She lowered her head to conceal the tears in her eyes.

Her mind was racing. She was thinking of so many people and things. One of them was Leila. She couldn't believe how many terrible things Leila had done. Now that Charles had woken up, she wanted to tell him everything, but she decided against it.

Charles was just recovering. If she suddenly told him everything, it might set back his progress. If Sheryl exposed Leila, Melissa would definitely make a big deal out of it. Sheryl just didn't want Charles to go through that.

She also couldn't keep her mind off Lewis.

Even though Lewis had stopped already, it didn't mean that the media had stopped spreading the stories too. She also didn't want to keep any of that from Charle

face and took care of Charles.

She eyed him carefully, making sure that his mood had lightened up, and he wasn't angry anymore. Only then did she say, "Did someone tell you anything? Is that why you treated Leila like that?"

"Mother, I don't want to talk about her right now." Charles frowned and angrily put his fork down. He looked at Melissa and saw that she looked confused. Then he continued, "I don't like Leila. You always knew that. It's fine that you let her stay with you, but what happened to me the last time I was drunk caused problems between me and Sheryl. Sheryl wasn't happy when she saw Leila, and I'm not exactly fully recovered yet. I didn't ask Leila to leave just because of you. What else do you want to know?"

Charles said this all in one breath because he wanted Melissa to let it go already.

However, Melissa only grew angrier. She stood up and said with a scowl, "Charles, what on earth did Sheryl tell you which made you hate Leila this much? You don't know what that woman's been doing these past few days while you were in a coma. Do you have any idea where I'd be if it weren't for Leila?"

Melissa knew that she had no choice but to stand by Leila. If she conceded, it would only make Sheryl happy.
