"Do you think that I don't know what you have done? Of course, I know about what you did! I have been to the villa in bustling downtown." Melissa sat down and looked at Charles with disdain. She knew she was guilty but was reluctant to apologize.

Melissa looked down on Vicky because Vicky was not as excellent as Sheryl. Even if Charles was being threatened, he would never have chosen a woman like Vicky. She was so angry with Charles for ruining everyone's lives.

"Mom, could you please not worry about these things?" Charles didn't know what to say upon hearing that Melissa had been to the villa. He couldn't hide anything from her anymore.

"Fine! I can let you deal with it. But what have you done so far? Tell me, what exactly! You have done absolutely nothing, my son! Honestly, do you think that if you marry Vicky, you won't care about anybody else?" Melissa was so angry that she cursed at her own son.

"Mom. I have told you that I will never marry Vicky! Why don't you believe me?" Charles took a deep breath to regain his composure. He couldn't understand why Melissa was so upset.

Melissa couldn't control herself because she truly didn't believe Charles' words. She walked towards him, pointed at him, and shouted, "I believed you before. But now I see nothing has changed. Since you now even hate me. Will you not allow me to go to the villa?"

Melissa specifically aimed to say these words because she wanted to make Charles feel guilty.

"Okay. Whatever! You can do what you want to do. I don't care anymore." As soon as Charles stopped talking, he went upstairs. He didn't want to argue with his mother.

Melissa stood up at once to go after him, but David stopped her.

David shook his head and said, "Mrs. Lu, please believe Charles. He is dealing with it. Don't worry."

Melissa saw David's sincere expression and felt annoyed. She didn't say anything further and just watched Charles go upstairs.

After the argument, Dream Garden became silent. Nobody spoke anymore.

At the Cloud Advertising Company

Sheryl and Isla had just finished a meeting and were going home. When they went downstairs, they saw

ke a promise. Don't play with the children too late. This morning, the children didn't want to get up because they were still tired," Sheryl said with a serious expression on her face.

Isla nodded at once, smiling. She replied, "Don't worry. I won't! I am tired, too. I will go to bed early."

"Alright, I'm starving! Let's have dinner first. The children have already finished their dinner. So we can get something together if you want?" Sheryl asked as she was looking at her watch.

"Well, what do you want to eat? I'll pay the bill." When Isla made a promise, she always kept it.

Sheryl laughed as she saw Isla putting her hand on her chest as if swearing her life away just for dinner. She couldn't help saying, "Who did you learn that?"

"From Aron, of course. He always puts his hand on his chest to make a promise. I learned it from him," Isla said. After that, she couldn't help but talk endlessly about what Aron had taught her.

"Don't talk too much about your husband. It hurts me. You know that I am single now." Even though it seemed that Sheryl had forgotten about Charles, she didn't want to hear others talk about their love lives. She didn't mind telling her friends that she was single now.

"I'm sorry, Sheryl. I promise not to do it again." Isla felt sad for Sheryl. Although Sheryl seemed outwardly happy, she bet that inwardly Sheryl must be depressed. She couldn't stop worrying about Sheryl.
