Leila was already in a bad mood, and the sight of Holley had made it worse.

It had been a long and tough day for Leila. All she wanted to do was to go back and lie in bed. However, when she was back in the Dream Garden, she heard some bad news.

"Leila, did you hear about it? Charles is alive! Call David to confirm if it is true!" Before Leila could sit down, Melissa held Leila's hand and uttered these words in excitement. In the past few days, Melissa had been gloomy, but her enthusiasm had now returned in full force.

Leila looked at Melissa in disbelief, her eyes wide open.

'What does it mean? Is Charles still alive?!' Leila thought to herself, confused and scared at the same time. She couldn't imagine what would happen to her once Charles came back. 'No! He can't find out what I have done, ' she thought feeling miserable.

"Aunt Melissa, what do you mean? Where did you hear this news from?" Leila feigned a smile and asked Melissa, trying her best to remain calm.

Melissa was too excited to notice the worry and anxiety on Leila's face. She pulled Leila into an embrace and said, "It doesn't matter where I heard about it from. The most important thing is to confirm the news. Hurry up and call David, Leila."

"Okay, okay, I'm calling him now. Please, calm down, Aunt Melissa," Leila said as she took out her cell phone. But her mind was muddled. 'If David tells me that Charles is alive, what am I supposed to do?' Leila wondered.

Her mind had already started to think about a lot of possibilities as she waited for David to answer her call. A few minutes had passed, yet no one picked up the call. Leila couldn't help but breathe a sigh of relief.

"Aunt Melissa, David isn't answering my call. But don't worry. I'll ask someone else to look for Charles. They will call us as soon as they get any updates," Leila said as she patted Melissa's shoulder concernedly, even though she was elated inside.

Hearing Leila, Melissa couldn't help but feel disappointed. What Leila said had dashed her hope. Her earlier enthusiasm was drained. Now Melissa thought it was better to not get any answers. She would simply hold onto the hope that Charles was alive somewhere.

After Leila tucked Melissa in, she thought about what Melissa had told her. The idea of Charles being alive was driving her crazy. She tossed and turned but couldn't fall asleep. The next day, she got up early and went to the company.

It was just one night. However, when Leila got to the company, everyone was talking about Charles. They seemed pretty sure that he was still alive. Their talking almost convinced Leila that Charles had indeed survived. N

think he will be going back right now. Let's follow them and see where they are heading."

"Dad, how can you be so sure?" Angel asked Franklin suspiciously.

Franklin didn't answer Angel's question. Instead, he gestured for her to follow him.

Therefore, Angel and Franklin walked out of the hospital. They looked around and finally found Charles. On finding him, they quickened their pace, trying to catch up.

David realized that Franklin and Angel were following them. He lowered his voice and said to Charles, "President Lu, they are following us. What should we do?"

"Never mind them. Let them follow," Charles answered indifferently. A smile could be detected on his face.

"President Lu, are we going back now?"

"Not yet. Let's go to the hotel first." Charles then gestured David to drive faster.

Soon, Charles and David had arrived at the hotel. Angel and Franklin breathed a sigh of relief.

"Dad, he isn't leaving! Now tell me how did you know that?!" Angel asked Franklin in excitement, grinning from ear to ear. Her reaction was akin to that of a little girl who had received the gift she wanted the most.

"I noticed they didn't bring their luggage with them. If they were going to the airport, how could they go empty-handed? That's how I ascertained they would head back to the hotel first. Alright, I guess I have put your mind at ease."

Franklin was relieved too. He was willing to do anything in order to make his daughter happy.

"Uh-huh, Dad. I knew that you would help me. You will make Charles stay for my sake, right?"

By now, Angel was completely obsessed with Charles. She believed that one day he would reciprocate her love. Her biggest dream right now was to marry Charles and stay with him for the rest of her life.
