Isla couldn't figure it out. She didn't have the time to think it over, either, so she just headed straight to the hospital.

Phoebe was very worried about Sheryl, too, so she came along with Isla to the hospital.

When they were on their way to the parking lot, Phoebe saw that Isla was going to drive the car, and she promptly stopped.

"I'm driving, okay?" Isla said in a worried tone.

"Okay, okay."

Isla didn't know how Sheryl was, but all she knew was that she needed to be there as her best friend right now.

In the hospital room

Sheryl was sleeping as she was tired from everything that had happened.

Even when Charles went inside the room, Sheryl was still sleeping.

He walked carefully toward Sheryl because he was afraid that he would wake her up.

Charles sat beside Sheryl, staring at her. He didn't hesitate to hold Sheryl's hand, but he made sure he was gentle.

"No, no, get away, get away..." Sheryl said, half asleep.

"Relax. Don't worry. It's just me. I'm here, I'm here. I'll protect you." Charles rubbed Sheryl's hands gently, trying to comfort her.

Maybe because of Charles' voice, but Sheryl relaxed. She didn't seem to be in such a bad mood now, and she was holding Charles' hands.

Charles was relieved. He gradually smiled upon noticing that Sheryl was still relying on him.

After a while, Sheryl muttered, "Charles, don't leave me."

When Charles heard this, he felt something was stabbing into his already aching heart.

"Sher, sorry, sorry, I'm so sorry. This is all my fault. Please forgive me," Charles responded, sobbing.

Charles was normally an aloof person. However, when it came to Sheryl, he couldn't control himself. It was always different with her.

He stared at Sheryl for a while before leaving to let Sheryl sleep soundly.

At the door, Charles told Nick to watch Sheryl carefully before leaving again to go back to work.

Nick walked with Charles to the gate of the hospital.

Then, he met Isla in the elev

usion.

Sheryl let out a sigh. She looked disappointed. She was hesitating whether to tell Isla what she was thinking now.

Isla had never seen Sheryl behave like this. She couldn't help but ask, "What on earth are you worried about?"

"I don't know. Damian and I are just friends. I never thought that he would do that to me. I thought I wasn't going to see Charles ever again, but when I was in trouble, he came and..." Sheryl trailed off when she was about to cry.

Isla quickly rushed over to Sheryl and hugged her. She said, "It's okay. Charles was just temporary. You don't have to think of him anymore."

"Is he really just temporary?" Sheryl asked, looking at Isla expectantly.

She didn't want to give up. She had so many hopes for her and Charles. Their only barrier was Vicky.

As she thought of this, she realized she really needed to let go of Charles already.

"Okay, don't worry. I'm fine. I'm hungry now." Sheryl smiled.

"Really?" Isla was taken aback by the sudden change of topic.

"Yes. I don't want to think about it. I'm just hungry now,"

Sheryl said sincerely. Isla had no choice but to believe her.

"Okay, wait for me here. I'll get you some food. Just stay here and be a good girl," Isla said playfully.

"Yes, Sir." Sheryl gave Isla a salute as she watched her leave the room.
