Isla thought of rushing into Charles' office and confronting him, once and for all, about him and Sheryl. But the thought of making more of a mess held her back. She paced back and forth, wearing a hole through her office's carpet, and still undecided about what she should do.

Unable to come up with another solution, she decided to call Aron.

"Are you busy right now?" Isla asked, sounding like something was bothering her.

Aron sensed she was in a bad mood. "The baby is sleeping," he said quietly. "Did something happen?"

"I told you about the thing between Sheryl and Melissa, right?" After asking, she remembered that Aron was another person who knew something about the issue. If she couldn't find a solution herself, she had to find someone who could help her come up with something.

"Yes. Did anything happen?" Aron gently kissed their baby's cheek before quietly walking out of the bedroom. With the phone cradled between his neck and ear, he waited patiently for Isla's reply.

"Melissa went to talk with Jackson's fiancée. She almost ruined their relationship!" Isla fretted. "Luckily, Sheryl stepped in to settle the issue. What should I do now? I can't just let Melissa and Charles get away with that!" The more she thought about what happened, the angrier she became.

Aron could sense Isla's fury even though he couldn't see her. Instead of telling her what she could do, he tried to pacify her. "Sweetheart, calm down. You act impulsively when you're angry. Then who would be left to think of Sheryl's welfare? You have to calm down, okay?"

With much effort, Aron finally managed to calm Isla down.

"Okay, I'm calm now. What should I do?" Isla just couldn't let the issue go. As Sheryl's friend, she had this strong impulse to do something to help Sheryl.

"You don't have to do anything. I'm serious. No one should meddle between Charles and Sheryl."

"Why?"

She had called Aron in the hopes of him thinking of a solid plan for her. But his suggestion to just stand by and let Charles and Sheryl figure things out on their

ed look.

"Alright, alright. I'll leave. I won't disturb you anymore." Isla raised her hands–a sign of surrender. After that, she walked out of Sheryl's office.

Taking the opportunity, now that Isla wasn't watching her, Sheryl sneaked out of her office to find Belinda.

Sheryl found Belinda to be in an angry mood. When the receptionist alerted Belinda that Sheryl was here for her, she immediately asked her to let Sheryl in.

As Sheryl appeared, Belinda walked up to her and spat, "What do you think you're doing here? Did you come here to humiliate me? Let me tell you: My family has much more money and power than you and your small company. If you marry Jackson, I will destroy you!" For the first time in her life, Belinda found herself threatened by someone's harsh words. There was simply no reason to stay calm after that.

"Belinda, have you lost your mind? Jackson is only a partner in my company. I knew from the start that he is engaged. Why would I step into other people's relationships?" Sheryl tried to explain.

Belinda paused, her anger draining out of her. After a moment, she asked, "What do you mean? Are you telling me the woman who spoke with me about this was just talking nonsense?"

"Did you seriously think Jackson would marry you just for your money?" Sheryl asked in a grave tone, hoping Belinda would see the light in her argument.
