Sheryl was fuming as she thought hard about everything that had been going on. Finally, she had had enough. The moment she made up her mind to go to Shining Company and see Charles, she began gathering her things.

No matter what was bound to happen this time, Sheryl was determined to find out everything she could. If Charles still refused to sign the divorce papers, she would fight with everything she had. She didn't mind butting heads with anyone.

As soon as Sheryl stepped out of her office, her phone rang. It was Isla calling.

As a matter of fact, Isla had been calling the entire day, but Sheryl's phone had been busy during each call. It had been driving Isla nuts. When the call finally connected, Isla pouted and asked with exaggerated sadness in her voice, "Sheryl, who have you been talking to this entire time? I couldn't reach you. It seemed like you were on the phone with someone for an unbelievably long time. Should I be jealous?"

Isla had said all this in jest, but Sheryl was not in the mood to participate. It was fortunate that they were talking on the phone. This way, Isla had no way of seeing the look of sorrow on Sheryl's face. If they had been talking face to face, Isla would have felt just as sad for her friend.

Sheryl drew in a deep breath and spoke into her phone, "Isla, Charles is with Leila again. I want a divorce, but he's not cooperating. Right now, I'm on my way to Shining Company. I'm about to clear things out and find out exactly what's going on. You and Aron enjoy yourselves. I have to hang up now."

Sheryl, in an anxious state, had said all this in one breath. She was about to end the call when she heard Isla's slightly panicked voice.

"Ah, wait a moment!" Isla shouted. Sheryl's finger was hovering over the End Call button, but she didn't press it.

"What?" Sheryl had no choice now but to let Isla speak. There had been genuine urgency in Isla's voice.

"It's possible that there's one thing you still don't know. It's important, and I think you should know..." Isla hesitated.

She didn't know if it was the right time to tell Sheryl. After all, Sheryl was undoubtedly already feeling terrible at the moment. Isla had always thought it was because of things that remained unclear between Charles and Leila.

"What's the matter? Just tell me," Sheryl asked, feeling confused.

ding of Shining Company. Let's have a talk."

Earlier, Sheryl had made it clear that she would end her relationship with Charles and would never see him again. But now, she was asking him to meet her. She thought about how embarrassing the situation was, but she also knew she had no other choice. She couldn't just let this pass without doing anything about it.

Sheryl was a nervous wreck after sending the message. Even if Charles saw it, there was no guarantee that he would agree to meet her.

She waited anxiously in the car. She breathed a sigh of relief when she finally saw Charles coming out of the building and walking toward her. But soon, dread took over. Charles was finally here. They were finally going to talk. What was going to happen after that?

Charles walked over to her car. He had a look on his face that Sheryl found hard to read.

Charles hadn't expected this at all. He had thought that she would never want to see him again. He had thought that if they met, it would be because he had insisted.

"Let's go to the coffee shop," Sheryl said as she got out of the car and gestured to the shop right across from them.

Charles didn't respond nor protest.

Taking this as a yes, Sheryl led the way.

The two remained silent as they walked. Fortunately, the shop was very near. Otherwise, both would have suffocated from the silence and the tension.

Charles and Sheryl had both frequented the coffee shop in the past. This time, however, Sheryl felt strange being here. It was as if she hadn't been here for a very long time.
