Carla's curiosity was piqued when she heard that they had found something out. She immediately drew closer to him and asked anxiously, "Are there any clues about where the ring came from? Did you find that out?"

Terence took her hand and brought it to his lips kissing it gently and said, "Settle down. More than twenty years have passed since the ring was lost, which was quite a long time. There are too many variants to take into consideration and much information has been inevitably lost in the course of time. We can't come to any concrete conclusions just yet.

I don't want to say anything, not until I get all of the facts and information. I don't want to disappoint you just in case what I say is not correct."

Carla figured that he was probably right. It would be better to wait until they knew all of the facts first so she didn't ask him any more questions about the ring.

Suddenly

Terence's cellphone jingled to life.

He casually glanced at the screen of his phone.

Carla expected that he would seek some privacy and go into another room to take the call, but he didn't. He just propped himself up in the bed and answered, "Hello, Bonnie."

"Is that you, Terence? Where are you? Why haven't you come here?"

He could tell by her voice that she was about to cry.

She didn't understand how he could be so cold-hearted and ignore her when she was suffering so much.

"I'm busy at the moment. I have an important person that I have to meet. I assure you that I will come and see you as soon as I can," Terence said as he glanced over and winked at Carla.

Carla was unimpressed and turned her eyes away from him. "How can he be so disgraceful and ruthless?" she thought.

"An important person? Terence, please tell me that you are not with another woman," Bonnie said feeling unsettled. She always felt some trepidation with Terence, but she couldn't put her finger on what it was. There was always a feeling of uncertainty.

She had even turned to Ivy and Theo for advice, but they couldn't tell her anything that could help put her mind at ease.

"Don't be so suspicious of me. I'll come to see you as soon as my work is done," Terence replied with hast and then hung up the phone. Carla had been sitting on the edge of the bed staring at him in sheer disbelief. Terence just smiled down at her and then pulled her into his arms.

She was no match for Terence in physical strength, so there was no point in trying to fight him. She just let herself be dragged into his embrace. She said with a wry face, "How can you be so remarkably despicable and unashamed!"

Carla couldn't get over how thick-skinned and callous he could be.

By now Terence had become used to Carla's insults and innuendo's. He smiled and gave her a quick peck on the cheek and said, "Of course I'm shameless otherwise I wouldn't have fallen for you."

"......" Carla fell silent. She could bet that if she gave Terence an inch he would take a

mises and I will never make any of my words of honor by this," Terence said as he attentively watched her with deep affection. "But if you should ever cry, I will exhaust all possible means and devote all my heart to making you happy again.

I will do all that I can do to prevent you from getting hurt. If by some misfortune you are hurt, I will always be by your side to take care of you and never leave you."

When he finished, he kissed her forehead gently.

To make such a promise to someone meant to live by it for a lifetime. They were not just some empty words that were inspired by certain circumstances.

There were so many variants in life. Who could tell what the future may hold? Life could be so sweet but it could also be bitter at times.

Companionship was always the deepest confession of love.

He could not agree more with that thought.

The most convincing proof of his love for her should be his companionship and the fact that he would always be there for her.

Carla looked up at him, and tears welled in her eyes and slid down her cheeks. They were tears of happiness. Never did she imagine that this moment would ever happen to her. She never allowed herself to dream of something like this and only thought that it happened in fairy tales. But here she was in that fairy tale. However, she never imagined that moment would

ironically come shortly after Terence was engaged to another woman.

"Terence—"

she called.

"Hmm?"

he gently responded.

"I can feel something hard of yours. Can you please move that away from me?"

Hearing the beautiful words that Terence had just said to her, Carla was too overwhelmed to feel anything but love and devotion. With tears still glistening in her eyes she wondered how he could possibly be aroused at such a divine and touching moment.

Now she began to feel doubt. She wondered whether all of those heartwarming and soul-stirring words were from his heart or from his arousal!
