"I guess you are too busy to see me, right?" Melissa told Sheryl, sounding disappointed.

"Mom, let's go to the meeting room." Sheryl hesitated but decided to call Melissa 'Mom'. After all, she was still married to Charles. She didn't want Melissa to blame her for being impolite and rude.

But Melissa didn't seem to hear her. Or perhaps, she ignored her intentionally.

"Mom, let's go to the meeting room," Sheryl repeated, trying her best to keep her temper.

"Don't call me 'Mom'. I am not your 'Mom'!" Melissa showed Sheryl an attitude, full of disappointment and annoyance.

"Mrs. Lu, may I ask what brings you here?" Sheryl asked, furrowing her brows. She knew Melissa was here to get her into trouble, but she couldn't be mad at her. She would need to control herself as best as she could.

"I came here for one purpose and one purpose alone. I'm here to ask you when you will divorce from my son?" Melissa raised her voice and yelled at Sheryl, not caring about drawing attention from the people in the company.

Reacting quickly, Phoebe gestured for them to leave. The employees went back to work.

Melissa and Sheryl were now left alone to discuss without any more interruptions.

"Mrs. Lu, since you are Charles' mother, I bet you know him well. It isn't that I don't want a divorce. Instead, it is your son who is prolonging the process. Please, help me persuade him to sign the papers as soon as possible once you return home." Sheryl was about to lose her patience. Charles was the one who betrayed their marriage, but he was also the one who refused to get a divorce. How come Melissa blamed her for everything?


"Mrs. Lu, do you have anything else to say? If there is nothing, please, leave now. I need to get back to work." Sheryl pointed her hand to the door, gesturing Melissa to leave.

Although Phoebe had asked everybody else to leave, she had hidden herself in the corner. Upon hearing that Sheryl was asking Melissa to leave, she quickly walked to Melissa and said, "Mrs. Lu, this way."

"Sheryl, let's wait and see. There is no way I will let Charles


But Isla didn't feel relieved at all. Instead, she got more worried. "So what are you going to do?" she asked.

"What else can I do, Isla? Just wait for the email from the court. I am getting a divorce, and no one can stop me." Sheryl spread her hands as she answered.

Isla sighed speechlessly. She opened her mouth, wanting to say something, but Sheryl interrupted her, "I know what you want to say, Isla. Even if Ferry isn't there to threaten me, my relationship with Charles can't be saved. I am done with him. It isn't meant to be. Don't worry. I can handle it."

Sheryl tried her best to convince Isla with her determination.

Isla didn't know what to say.

"Alright, get back to work. I have files to work on too!" Sheryl said, urging Isla to leave.

Isla didn't know how to respond. After all, Sheryl kept assuring her that she was doing okay, although Isla knew she was not. But what else could she do? She would just burden Sheryl more if she kept bugging her. It would be better to leave her alone for the time being.

Everyone in the company, especially Sheryl, was distracted by Melissa. No one could actually focus on their work. It had been a long day.

As soon as she finished her work, Sheryl drove straight to the kindergarten. For the past few days, Sheryl would pick the children up herself if she wasn't too busy. Today she planned to pick up the kids too.
