However, Isla was serious about the matter. "Don't you think Charles could be busy covering up a crime, and perhaps that's why he has sent David here to do it?" she asked in a serious tone. Isla meant every single word she said. She was inspecting the matter from every angle possible.

Sheryl couldn't help but grin at Isla's assumption. "Do you think that the CEO of the Shining Company is a gangster?" she asked, shaking her head in amusement.

"No, but don't you think that there must have been something unusual?" Isla was extremely vigilant and eyed everything with suspicion.

"Whatever you think," Sheryl said. She didn't try convincing Isla to stop overthinking because she knew that nothing would change her mind.

After they had finished their coffee, Sheryl drove Isla home.

She was upset that Aron had gone on a vacation with their child, leaving her all alone. Although Isla was complaining, Sheryl couldn't help but wonder at how beautiful and happy their family was.

"You've no clue as to how lucky you are. Aron loves you and treasures you like a precious gift. You're the most important person in his life. But look at you–You're always complaining about him," Sheryl advised Isla.

"You're my best friend! You're supposed to be on my side, not his. How can you stand up for Aron?" Isla exclaimed in mock annoyance.

Sheryl burst into a fit of laughter. "You're such a drama queen. Aron is overprotective about you and has turned you into a spoiled child. Would you be the same without him?"

"Ha-ha! Very funny!" Isla rolled her eyes. "If you want to live your life the way I do, the first thing you've got to do is forget Charles. Then, find a good man, start a new relationship, and move on. If you're looking for men, I'll help you out. I know some guys who'd interest you."

Isla was going on and on about what Sheryl should be doing.

"Isla, have you changed your profession? Are you a matchmaker now?" Sheryl was amused.

"Sheryl, if you utter another word, I'll bring a man right away and set you up on a date!" Isla threatened her.

"Oops, sorry boss." Sheryl knew

om his mother.

Melissa couldn't let go of it. She ran after him. "Charles, wait!"

"Mom, I swear, I don't have the time to talk. I should go." Charles didn't have a reason that was good enough to convince his mother. He had to leave immediately. He couldn't afford to waste the time.

"All right, I don't want to bother you anymore. I just wanted to know whether you'll be back for dinner," Melissa said, suppressing her anger.

"I'm not sure. Ask for Sheryl's consent if you're going to see the kids." Charles drove off, leaving Melissa all alone.

David was driving the car in silence, but his eyes were speaking a thousand words as he was glancing at Charles and studied his face.

"Just say it," Charles said coldly. Charles' eyes were closed, but he could feel that David was peering at him.

David was embarrassed about being so obvious. "Mr. Lu, I think you can visit the kids if you like," he said, smiling shyly.

"I know. I don't want to be distracted, as this is a critical moment for me. If anyone finds out that I still love my kids, they'll use them to get back at me." The love for his children was Charles' biggest weakness.

Understanding crossed David's face. "You're right, Mr. Lu. You can count on me. I'll instruct more people to keep a close eye on Ms. Xia and the kids," he promised.

"Thank you,"

Charles mumbled, closing his eyes, drowning in his thoughts.
