"I honestly have no idea why this occurs. She seldom relapses into that state, to be completely honest. Moreover, she appears to fear her own cat whenever her disease attacks recently, which I might add, has never happened before,"

Whitney answered, her eyebrows furrowed in confusion.

"That's weird, I thought she loved her cat," Cassandra wondered out loud. Her face indicated that she too, was quite puzzled.

She could still picture in her mind how Courtney was holding her cat in her arms when they met for the first time. It was a white bi-eyed Persian cat that left a strong impression on Cassandra.

"She does. She has always loved animals ever since she was little. She did develop some fear awhile back, but gradually grew to adore them as she grew older. It's just odd to see her sudden bouts of fear for them every once in a while. I tried asking her the reason, but she outright refused to tell me..."

Whitney sighed with despair clear as day in her eyes. She had always thought of herself as a capable woman. But when it came to her daughter and her ailment, she would become so worried and helpless like any other ordinary mother in an instant.

They kept talking about Courtney's current condition, and failed to notice that Cloris was staring at them with a weird look on her face.

Staring straight ahead, she anxiously bit her lip as if she wanted to get away from something as fast as possible.

Tears formed in Whitney's eyes as she spoke. Cassandra quickly grabbed a tissue from the table and handed it to her. It pained her to see the tears of a poor mother.

'If only Courtney could recover, ' Cassandra sadly thought, 'Whitney wouldn't suffer so much.'

At that moment, the bedroom door swung open. A long figure with a look of terror on her face appeared in the doorway—it was Courtney.

"Mom, the bunny... the bunny is dead!"

Courtney uttered in a shaking voice, her face contor

e an angry child. Tears streamed down her face.

At this point, Cassandra's head was throbbing in pain. Courtney's words and Cloris's defensive reaction seemed to have triggered a repressed memory.

She felt lightheaded and was about to lose her balance. She shook her head vigoriously in an attempt to clear her mind as she swayed back and forth.

A bunny? A bunny was killed?

Her mind was in chaos as the words kept flashing over and over.

She found herself picturing a particular memory. When she tried to focuse on the details, however, the images became more blurred and simply faded away. She pushed herself to remember, but every time she was close to getting an answer, it slipped away. The darkness took her, and she fell to the ground unconscious.

The first thing that Cassandra saw when she opened her eyes was Rufus's concerned yet tender gaze. Then she saw the relief wash over him.

"Thank God you're awake," he said in a sigh of relief.

His hand reached out to stroke her soft cheeks, it was warm and he was smiling.

"The doctor said that you were probably fatigued. You ought to stay at home and get proper rest for today. Just leave the company affairs to the others," he said in a soothing voice, which still betrayed the worry he had for her.
