"Sean. I feel so lucky to have you as my little brother. If that's what you really want, then I look forward to seeing the day you turn all of that into reality."

Tears started welling up in her bloodshot eyes. She wrapped her arms around Sean and had him in her clutch for a long while, much like how they had always depended on each other through the years.

The night soon grew darker. Carla tucked Sean in his bed moments after he fell asleep. As she was walking toward her room, her phone suddenly buzzed.

Without even checking who was calling her, she immediately picked up the phone. "Who is this?" she asked.

"It's me."

From the sound of her voice, Terence could easily tell that she seemed quite exhausted and was about to go to bed. With a heavy heart, he got so infuriated, "Are you seriously about to go to bed? You've got to be kidding me. How can you sleep so easily knowing everything that happened?!"

Realizing that it was Terence calling, she yawned and took a glance at the clock hanging on the wall. Rubbing her sleepy eyes, she squinted and saw that the clock was about to strike one in the morning.

With a lazy voice, she replied, "What are you on about? So what if I'm going to bed? It's already way past midnight. What else should I possibly be doing at this time?"

Terence couldn't stop himself from getting upset, but he tried his best to, at least, calm himself down a bit. Taking in a deep breath, he blurted out, "Woman, how cold of you. I thought that you might be losing sleep tonight after the conversation we had earlier. I've been patiently waiting for quite a long time for an opportunity to sneak out of my ward. They finally let their guard down just so I could call you and explain everything to you.

It seems like you were never really interested to hear my explanation at all. You don't seem to care about everything that's happening regarding the engagement nor with whom I am going to be engaged with! You're really breaking my heart, Carla. Do you know that?"

Only then was Carla finally able to understand why he was so pissed off that she was about to go to bed. He had been caught up in a difficult situation, and yet, there she was, about to sleep soundly at night. She didn't turn the lights on in her room, so as she was staring blankly in the darkness, she calmly mumbled, "Terence, it's not that I don't care. I don't really have any right to say anything about your enga

rd to stop the tears from coming and faked a bitter smile with her brows intensely furrowed. "Don't do anything stupid or try to go against them in any way. Most of all, don't you dare think that you have to prove that you're a man of your word and insist to make all your promises come true.

You'd only be wasting your time because I don't care anymore."

The minute he said he'd give her some time to think it over, Carla knew instantly that he was up to no good. Go against his family? Run away on the engagement day? Merely thinking about the plans he might've laid out was enough to give Carla a headache. Even though it hadn't been so long since they've been together, she knew Terence wouldn't just give up on her that easily. Therefore, she might as well sprinkle some salt on his wounds by saying she didn't give a damn.

Upon hearing her response, he muted himself from the line and burst into laughter on the roof of the hospital. 'This woman knows me so damn well. Of course, I won't be choosing any woman other than her. God, she's perfect, ' Terence thought to himself feeling extremely elated. About two seconds later, he cleared his throat and immediately got back on the line.

"Carla, I admit that I may not always be perfect, and I may not seem to be a man of my words, and I may not always be able to keep all of my promises. However, for you, I will..."

He desperately wanted to tell Carla that no matter what, he would always be there to protect her and fight for her. But before he could say anything else, the sound of some light footsteps coming from behind him suddenly caught his attention.
