"Leila, I'm fine. Don't worry about me," Melissa said, forcing a smile. Anyone who saw her could tell that she wasn't in good condition at all. She only said that because she didn't want Leila to worry.

Leila approached them and held Melissa's arm so she could walk Melissa to the sofa. She couldn't help but notice that they both looked like they weren't feeling well, especially Charles. He even looked guilty. Leila tried to give him an exit by saying, "Charles, it's fine, you can go ahead. I can stay with Aunt Melissa. I'll take care of her. Don't worry."

"Yes, Leila is right. Charles, go ahead. I'll be fine with Leila," Melissa added.

Charles nodded and headed upstairs without protest.

Melissa heaved a deep breath as soon as he was gone. She turned to look at Leila and sighed, "It was so difficult to pretend to be sick!"

"Aunt Melissa, what's happening now? Has Charles agreed to divorce Sheryl?" Leila asked anxiously, looking at Melissa with expectant eyes.

She just wanted Charles and Sheryl to divorce. If there was anything she could do, she wouldn't give it a second thought—she'd do anything. She just wanted to be the lady of Dream Garden.

"Yes, he did. You can relax now. He's going to do it. Our plan worked,"

Melissa beamed. She'd been waiting for this for so long.

Everyone knew how much Charles and Sheryl had gone through. Even if they tried, they couldn't get things back to the way they were.

Meanwhile, at Holley's home

As the day of Holley's deadline from Ferry approached, she couldn't help but feel scared. Once that day came, she'd have to marry Jason, and she couldn't do anything about it.

She woke up very early because she had trouble sleeping. She decided to go to work, but even when she arrived there, she still couldn't get her mind off things.

Holley was going crazy. She didn't know what to do to help save herself. She felt like things were out of her control, and all she could do was watch. She couldn't do anything even if she wanted to.

sn't in any pain. He just wanted to get the nurses' attention. It was his only form of entertainment.

The doctor had already told him numerous times that he could be discharged. He just wanted to stay longer. He'd say he had a stomach ache or that there was a pain in his abdomen, just so he would get more check-ups every day. To keep him entertained in the hospital, he harassed the nurses, and when he got tired of that, he would call Holley.

"Mr. Gao, you're done with all your check-ups, and the results have come back. You're very healthy, and you can be discharged today," a nurse came over and said to Jason. She didn't want to deal with him anymore, but he just kept groaning, and the other patients might hear him.

"Really? But there's this sort of twinge of pain in my chest," Jason said as he seductively stared at the nurse.

Then he pulled his hospital gown away so that he was showing off his chest. He asked the nurse for a check-up as he displayed his naked body to her.

The nurse, naturally, felt embarrassed. She was blushing as she didn't know what to do.

"Miss, are you all right? Do you feel hot now? Why is your face so red?" Jason teased.

He was used to flirting, and he was very good at it. The nurse was pissed, and she just wanted to get out of there. It didn't take long for her to leave the room.
