The frown on his face did not relax, and the muscles of his mouth grew, if anything, tenser, as he had already guessed the reason behind her unexpected visit.

Evidently, Amanda had already known about his short visit to Cassandra's office and she had showed up at his door to unburden her soul. However, Rufus wasn't aware of this just yet.

"Rufus, You haven't forgotten Cassandra, have you?"

Amanda's voice trembled. Her breath came so hard that Rufus could hear its suspiration where he stood.

"So, you know that I went to see her, right?"

Rufus was as sharp as a tack. Hardly anything could slip past his sharp mind without being noticed and Amanda's thoughts were of no exception.

'Now that she's here to talk to me about this matter, I might as well tell her everything I've got in my mind.' Rufus wanted to take advantage of this opportunity that had presented itself to him.

"Amanda, you know exactly what happened that night. And I don't think it was a coincidence that your father came into that room the next morning to witness the scene first-hand. You orchestrated all of that, didn't you?"

As he peered into her pretty face, he thought to himself, 'She is not as innocent as she tries to appear. She didn't hesitate to drug me with a philter just so she could become my woman.'

"Rufus, you can't make such baseless accusations about me just because you don't want to be with me!"

'Of course, I am not going to admit it. If I were foolish enough to admit to something like that, I wouldn't have any chance to become his girlfriend.' Amanda's flawless facade masked her private guilt.

"Yeah, well. If you say so, Amanda. I'm clearly aware of what you're capable of, thinking now."

His bitter frown transformed itself into a sneer smile and then a contemptuous one.

"I stayed with you for one whole month because of your illness, but I don't think I can hide my real thoughts to spend the rest of my life with you. The fact that I love Cassandra can't be changed. Someday you will meet a person who will love and cherish you, but that person is not me. I hope that one day you will understand me, Amanda."

A trace of tenderness crept into his face again. Even just uttering Cassandra's name could change his mood in a

l hope and strength.

'Could it be? Could it be that Cassandra is unwilling to be with me because she wants Charlie to invest in her company?'

Once the negative thoughts poured in, he couldn't get them out of his mind.

Even in the face of doubt, he kept telling himself, 'Don't think too much about it. Cassandra is not that kind of a person. But this is all too strange to be just a mere coincidence. Why would she ignore me? Moreover, Charlie just popped out of nowhere offering to help her for no reason? I don't think so.

I am going to find out what happened.'

Early morning mist began to clear over dew laden grass as the sun rose casting orange and pink onto a thin layer of cloud, ushering in a new day.

Slowly, Cassandra's eyelids fluttered open. She got up from bed and stretched out her arms and legs, feeling like a giddy miss fresh out of the schoolroom.

After washing her face and brushing her teeth, she was ready to put on her clothes: a casual shirt and loose pants. Something felt wrong, however, when she tied the belt.

"That's strange. I haven't been eating a lot lately, but somehow I am still gaining weight," she muttered to herself with a puzzled expression on her face.

'I usually buckle up my belt in a fixed position, but now I have to move a few centimeters outward to buckle my belt.

I have been so busy lately that I don't even have time to drink water. I wonder how I am still gaining weight. I really don't understand what's going on, ' she mused.
