Rufus had hardly entered the room when Amanda suddenly threw herself against his chest, too impatient to wait.

"You're finally here, Rufus!" she exclaimed while hugging Rufus tightly, her eyes closed and mouth curled into a happy smile.

Her face was scarlet all over.

"What's wrong with you? Are you okay? Hold on, I'm calling a doctor for you!" Rufus added his eyebrows furrowed in concern.

He managed to grab Amanda's arms and pushed away a bit.

He noticed that there was something wrong with her, but couldn't find out exactly what.

As far as he observed, Amanda was standing right in front of him, alive and kicking, which was weird that she didn't feel very well at the same time.

"Rufus, my heart is hurting…it's broken…" Amanda murmured.

Her eyes started to tear up as she looked at him pleadingly.

Her heart was in pain as if a sword stabbed it, when she saw how Cassandra and Rufus looked at each other's eyes so lovingly moments ago.

"Stop this, Amanda. I love Cassandra and she loves me. We'll get married soon," Rufus patiently explained.

The finality in his voice only added more pain to Amanda's wounded heart. She gasped to catch her breath.

"Why not me, Rufus? I don't see what's so special about her! It should've been me!"

Amanda refused to back down and accept his explanation. Tears were streaming down her cheeks at this point.

"She's so special to me, Amanda. You're a great girl, but I love her now and I just can't see a life without her. Don't you understand?"

Rufus knew that he needed to end this now, and if he showed the slightest note of hesitation, it would only make matters worse. Amanda had to accept the truth, that Rufus had no spare love for any other woman, only Cassandra.

"Rufus, I can't bring myself to listen to you right now. You know I'm ailing right now. Can't you at least pretend to make me feel better?"

Amanda raised her head a little to look into Rufus's eyes. Her mouth forced a sad smile.

"No, Amanda. This ends now. I won't lie to you even if you're sick,"

Rufus responded harshly. Deep in his heart, he was reluctant to admit the truth to her now, since she wasn't all that well; however his mind told him that he'd better end her expectations for her to move forward.

At that same moment, along the corridor, Cassandra was walking towards the room where Rufus and Amanda were in, which was at the end of the hallway. The soft carpet on the floor absorbed the sounds of her footsteps.

She passed one room after another.

After a few minutes, the room was finally in front of her. She could hear a conversation on the other side.

Two people were talking, one was Rufus and the other was apparently Amanda.

"Rufus, why are you doing this? You're hurting me! I hate you!" Amanda screamed.

She was wracked with sobs as she said the words, which was enough for Cassandra to shiver.

"I'm sorry, Amanda. I'm sure you'll find someone better in the future."

Rufus had no idea how to calm a girl, especially if she was wailing right in front of him.

"It really hurt me seeing you so close together. It's killing me softly. How could you be so evil? What's wrong with loving me?" Amanda choked.

Cassandra stood incredibly still as their voice came through the crack of the slightly ajar door.

Rufus stood with his back

"Well, If he's stubborn, I'm even more. You'll see, Michelle. If only he didn't have the car accident, I wouldn't have stayed with him," Cassandra said, full of conviction.

If there hadn't been an accident, and if he hadn't pretended to be serious, she would have left him for good.

"Are you sure? How about you? Can you move on?"

Michelle wanted to cover all the bases, since she was going abroad for an international competition as one of the judges. She were to be out of town for a couple of days, and feared that Cassandra and Rufus would get together again.

"No, Michelle. This time, I'm sure. We'll break up, and maybe he will hate me for the rest of his life..."

Cassandra started formulating her plan. She knew that Rufus would lose it every time he saw her with another man.

Since she decided to break up with him, her heart was set in stone.

"I hope you take what you said to heart. I wish you can find the man who you truly deserve," Michelle said quickly.

After their talk, she waved her hand and Jasper pulled over in front of them.

She opened the door and climbed inside. The car started to move away slowly.

Cassandra watched the car until it was a tiny speck in the horizon. She felt like her heart hitched a ride with the car. She felt so empty.

"Why didn't you wait inside? It's freezing out here."

A warm coat was put over Cassandra's shoulders and she was immediately buried in a familiar scent.

It was him. It looked like he was done with Amanda and now it was her turn.

Cassandra wondered how it felt like to go between two women at the same time, and if he was proud of himself.

"Come on! Let's go home!"

Rufus wrapped his arm around her shoulders and led her to the car, but to his surprise, Cassandra wouldn't budge.

"What's up? Something wrong?" he asked.

His eyebrows furrowed and he looked at her with concern in his eyes. Cassandra thought that he was handsome even when he looked stressed.

"No, it's nothing. I just got an idea for a case. I need to get to the office right away, so I can put it in writing before I forget," she replied with a faint smile.

She looked into his eyes intently, which reminded him of a delicate flower.
