"Let's wait until you get off work!" Isla was too frustrated to talk. All she wanted was to hit someone.

Cassie grew silent. She kept worrying as she watched Isla's back disappear down the corridor. She didn't go back to work until Isla had left the hospital building.

The head nurse was a friend of Cassie's, and she knew Cassie had been doing the night shift for the past few days. She felt sorry for Cassie since the night shift was quite demanding and tiring. She called Cassie to the lounge.

"You wanted to see me, ma'am?" Cassie had just finished changing a patient's dressing when she was told that the head nurse wanted to see her.

She quietly stood in front of the head nurse. Even though she and the head nurse were friends, Cassie figured it was better to keep a distance when it came to work as she didn't want their colleagues to gossip about them.

"Cassie, we're the only ones here. You don't need to act like that. Relax. You must be so exhausted!" the head nurse said. The head nurse was around 40 years old. She saw Cassie as her little sister.

Upon hearing what the head nurse said, Cassie smiled, pouted, and said, "Yes, I'm exhausted. I've been doing the night shift for two straight days!"

The head nurse was amused by Cassie. She shook her head and said to Cassie, "I know. You always let someone else rest first while you work. I mean, I know you aren't married yet, but you shouldn't be working so hard. Don't you think you should be spending some time with your boyfriend?"

"He's fine with it. He's actually very supportive. We're both still so young, so we want to focus on our careers, for now," Cassie answered.

The head nurse seemed to be satisfied with Cassie's answer.

The head nurse looked at her watch, and it was about time to change shifts. So she asked Cassie to leave and get off work.

"What? Are you kidding me, ma'am?" Cassie asked the head nurse in disbelief.

"What's the problem with you, Cassie? Others would be happy to get off work! You want to stay here and continue working? Fine! I won't force you to leave," the head nurse shrugged and teased Cassie.

"No, no, no, ma'am. That's not what I meant! Thank you so much!" Cassie said as she reached out to hug the head nurse. When she left the lounge, she was humming

w, Cassie. Let's just wait and see what happens. We can't do anything to worry Sheryl anymore as she already has a lot on her plate." Isla had only come to Cassie because she wanted someone to talk to, but she didn't expect Cassie to figure out a solution for her.

They then went to a restaurant to have dinner.

In the hospital

Charles looked at Vicky, trying his best to suppress his anger. After the call that Vicky had just interrupted, it was going to be more difficult for him now to explain his relationship with Vicky to Sheryl.

Even though he and Sheryl had pushed through with the divorce, that wasn't what he wanted at all. He just figured divorcing Sheryl first before he dealt with Vicky would be much better as he didn't want to involve Sheryl in any of this. He just didn't think that Vicky would speak to Sheryl. He didn't even want to think what Sheryl must be feeling right now.

"Charles, who was that woman? Is she your ex-wife?" Vicky glared at Charles, her eyes filled with calculation as she scrutinized him.

"That's none of your business. I did hit you, and I'm sorry about that. However, I won't marry you. No matter how many times you ask me, I won't change my mind," Charles said firmly. He realized this was the only way to deal with Vicky now, or else he wouldn't be able to get out of this.

"No, Charles. You can't do that. If you don't marry me, I'll kill myself! I'm going to do it right now!" Tears streamed down her face as she pulled out the tubes that were attached to her.
