The lawyer explained the entire process to Sheryl.

Sheryl wasn't exactly in the mood for this. She could feel her chest tightening at the idea of divorcing Charles. She felt sad.

"Miss Xia? Are you listening?" the lawyer asked tentatively. Sheryl wasn't responding, so he waited for her to say something.

"Oh, okay. Yes, I've got it."

The lawyer's voice pulled her back to reality.

When she hung up, she became lost in her thoughts again. She spent the rest of the day just daydreaming until it was time for her to go home.

At the Dream Garden

Charles had come home with Leila. However, Charles left immediately after dinner. He told Leila and Melissa that he had something to deal with. They knew he was lying because they knew he was just going to drink.

Melissa already knew from Leila that the Shining Company had lost billions of dollars. She was anxious and worried, but she didn't want to mention anything to Charles. She was afraid that she would make her son feel worse.

"Leila, you need to take care of Charles over the next few days. Don't let anything happen to him, okay?" Melissa said to Leila, a worried look on her face.

Leila nodded her head. Then she assisted Melissa into the living room. "Aunt Melissa, I won't just sit around and do nothing. I won't let anything happen to him. But you know, I'm only his secretary. I can't intervene in all of his affairs."

Leila purposely told Melissa this to convince Melissa that she needed to push Charles to divorce Sheryl as soon as possible. This was the only way that Leila could finally marry Charles.

"Leila, don't worry. Charles just received a subpoena from the court. I haven't given it to him yet because I know he's been having a rough time lately. I'll give it to him later, though, because he needs to do it already even though he doesn't want to."

Melissa looked at Leila with determination. She hoped that Leila would believe her.

"Well, Aunt Melissa, I've got it."

They chatted for a while before they went ba

e that Charles was already in his room before continuing, "Aunt Melissa, I think that's enough. Did you see the look on his face? Just let it go. Charles probably already knows what type of woman Sheryl is because she did this. We don't need to tell him that anymore."

Melissa nodded her head in agreement, even though there was still some hesitation. They walked to the couch and sat down.

"Aunt Melissa, drink some water!" Leila offered as she handed her a glass of water and then sat across her.

As Melissa took a sip of the water, Leila sighed. "Aunt Melissa, if Charles doesn't push through with the divorce this time, I don't know what will happen to the company."

"What do you mean?" Melissa asked anxiously, her eyes widened as she put down the glass of water.

Leila shifted her gaze, then said carefully, "Aunt Melissa, it's obvious that Sheryl is after Charles. She's trying to sabotage him. If Charles keeps doing this, she'll eventually control him. If she asks for the company, I'm sure Charles will give it to her! Even if she doesn't ask for anything, if she goes public with the divorce, and tells everyone that it's Charles who doesn't want to sign the papers, how do you think that will affect the company?"

Leila said as if she had thought a lot about this. Melissa nodded in disbelief. She knew Leila was right.
