Suddenly, Rob became so nervous that he started stammering. It wasn't until he heard the deep voice that he started to calm down.

"Boss, Charles said that you always carried a jade pendant around your neck. If you bring it to him, he will believe our relationship."

"Really?" After thinking for a while, Ferry moved his right hand to his neck and pulled the jade pendant from his neck.

"Here you are." Ferry gave it to Rob.

Rob took it from Ferry and was instantly relieved.

"Take care, Boss. You'll be out by tomorrow at the latest."

"Okay, we can go back to business once I'm out." Ferry then burst into laughter.

Rob nodded his head in agreement. His eyes seemed to betray a sense of surprise.

In the basement

"Here's the token you asked for," Charles said as he showed Rob the jade pendant in his hand.

At the sight of the jade plate, Rob became extremely excited. "Yes, that's my boss's jade pendant. He always has it around his neck." He rushed to Charles in an attempt to take it from him.

Charles withdrew his hand. "Now that you've seen the jade pendant, will you trust me already?"

"Yeah, I do," Rob said, with a big smile on his face.

"Well, I hope you keep your word. Ferry will come to see you tomorrow around this time," Charles added.

Rob just nodded. He was too excited to say anything.

The next afternoon, Charles brought the well-trained "Ferry" to meet Rob.

At the sight of "Ferry," Rob was immediately shocked. He then stretched out his hands and shouted, "Boss! It's me, Rob!"

"Rob? How did you end up like this? Charles, what have you done to him?!" Ferry turned to question Charles in a rage.

"You can ask him about that. I did what I had to do. Where's the antidote?" Charles asked.

Rob didn't address Charles directly. He just said, "Once I leave here safely with my boss, I'll give you the antidote. Relax."

Charles' face darkened as he said, "That's not what we agreed on. Rob, don't test my patience."

The fake Ferry responded, "Rob's right. We won't give you the antidote until we've left safely. Your son's life is in your hands. You need to realize that."

Rob nodded in agreement.

After a pause, Charles waved his hand and ordered, "Let them go."

"Um, Boss..."

"Let them go," Charles raised his voice.

"Yes, sir

ain. She thought that she had misheard her.

"Yes, it's true. We don't have to worry about him anymore. We're safe now." Sheryl sighed as she looked at Clark.

Melissa nodded. That was great news!

Sheryl was greatly relieved.

Now that Clark had been rescued and Rob had been caught, it was like they had killed two birds with one stone.

The next day, Clark went back to the Dream Garden. The whole family was celebrating his return.

Meanwhile, Shirley suddenly shouted, "Dad, propose to Mom! Mom said if you didn't propose to her, she was going to leave again with me and Clark."

As soon as Shirley said this, everyone went silent as if they were all holding their breath.

A few seconds later, Charles said in a low and husky voice, "Sher, Darling, marry me. I promise I will never hurt you again!"

"No, I've already married you once," Sheryl said, pouting.

"But… we already gotten a divorce. Will you marry me again?" Charles pressed Sheryl.

"Well..." Sheryl pretended to think about it, but suddenly she smiled playfully. "Charles, do you love me?"

"Of course, I love you. I love you so much. I don't want anyone else but you." Charles took this opportunity to show his sincerity. Everyone in the room was naturally moved.

"All right. How about you marry me this time?" Sheryl grinned.

"Ha-ha-ha!"

Before Charles could even respond, everyone in the room burst into laughter.

Charles hugged Sheryl tightly, not wanting to let go of her ever again.

This time, he really was never going to let go.
