When Carla woke up the next day, it was already afternoon.

Still with her eyes closed, she got up in a sitting position, placed her arms as high as she could and stretched her muscles. Then, she remained seated on the bed for a few more moments in silence.

She worked so late last night that she didn't even know what time she fell asleep or how she got in bed.

Since it was already midday, she thought that it would be better to stay at home that day. After all, she had flexible working hours where she could decide what time she would work. It was the main reason why she chose the job.

As long as she could finish the design of the logo by the end of the week, the company wouldn't mind whether she came to the office every day or not.

Carla continued to stretch her muscles but when she tried to move her neck, she felt shooting pain.

She felt a little confused so she tried to twist her neck in the other direction. To her surprise, she only felt more pain. She thought that it must have been because of her bad posture when she was working and how she slept on the table last night. Rubbing her neck softly, she picked up her mobile phone from the bedside table.

There were two new voice messages.

Curious, she immediately opened them and found out that both messages were sent by Terence that morning.

She played the first one and Terence's voice filled the room. "Rest at home today. Don't bother yourself about going to the office. I saw the drafts that you made. Congratulations! You've done a really good job. They were very innovative and creative," Terence sounded with a little excitement.

Now with a light feeling in her heart, Carla played the other message. "I've taken two of the drafts to the company. From those two, I'm going to make the Planning Division devise a detailed marketing plan. You can make more of those drawings slowly. You don't need to be in a hurry. More importantly, if you keep working late like you did last night, I will not let you keep the job anymore," Terence stated firmly.

Carla played the two voice messages that Terence had sent again and again. She was so happy at first but then, she pouted deeply.

She pondered quietly in her heart, 'What does he mean when he said that I'm not allowed to stay up late?

Whenever inspiration would come to me, I have to quickly draw them on the paper. Or else, the inspiration might be gone just like that. Does he understand that unless I execute the idea that I have, I wouldn't be able to sleep?'

She listened to the voice messages two more times and couldn't help but giggle every time she heard Terence say that she did a really good job. Although the pain in her neck still made her uncomfortable, she felt rather fulfilled and satisfied at that moment.

She had actually been planning to explain and present her ideas to him. She was just waiting for the right time when she could make enough drawings. What she didn't expect was that he would be able to understand her plans really quickly just by looking at her drafts.

She had made the right choice in choosing the man to marry. They understood each other really well. With that thought, Carla couldn't help but smile as she lay on the bed once more.

Just when Carla's heart was overflowing with happiness, her phone rang. She picked it up, only to find her Aunt's name on the screen.

Needless to say, she was surprised to see that she was calling her. But then she let out a long sigh when she realized that it might have something to do with Lynn, her cousin.

"Hello, Carla?

This is your Aunt. Have you seen Lynn these past few days?" Her aunt sounded so anxious on the other end of the line.

"No, I haven't seen her in so long. Why? What's the matter?" Carla asked while she lifted the quilt and finally got up from the bed.

"Carla, your uncle and I couldn't contact her since yesterday. We-we don't know where she is or if she's safe. This has never happened before. Lynn, that girl, does not have a habit of turning off her phone. I'm afraid that something bad happened to her. Carla, do you have any idea where she might have gone to?"

Her aunt was so worried that she couldn't con

and held back the impulse to vomit since she still had the consciousness and determination that she had to check whether Lynn was one of the two ladies. So she peeked inside the room one more time and felt relieved when she was sure that Lynn was not in there.

She was planning to close the door for them quietly and discreetly when the man happened to turn back and look at the door with his eyes half-closed. It all happened so suddenly that Carla didn't know what to do.

She didn't want to be seen by him so she reached out to cover her face and closed the door quickly.

After she made sure that the door was closed tightly, she held onto her chest and sighed deeply.

Shaking her head helplessly, she thought, 'Johnny, I didn't expect you to be this kind of person.

Now that I found out about this, I will never fall in love with you even if I had the opportunity to choose my lover again.'

She turned her back and proceeded to walk to the end of the hallway as quickly as she could. Finally, she saw Lynn sleeping on a small sofa. She looked really drunk and seemed to be in deep sleep.

As she stared at Lynn in that kind of state, Carla didn't know what to say or do. She gently patted Lynn on the face and called, "Lynn, are you alright? Lynn, wake up!"

However, after trying really hard to wake her up, Carla couldn't believe that she didn't have even the tiniest of reaction. Lynn didn't even move an inch! Helplessly and patiently, Carla went closer to her. Then, she shook her body while she repeatedly said, "Lynn, this is your cousin, Carla. Wake up right now. Can you hear me? I'm going to take you home."

Lynn laid still on the sofa while Carla tried to wake her up vigorously. Feeling uncomfortable, she then opened her eyes, looked around and then stopped on Carla's face. She was still in a daze and couldn't figure out where she was.

However, she seemed to recognize Carla and asked confusedly, "Cousin, why are you here?"

"Lynn, do you know how worried and anxious your parents are about you? Stand up right now and come back with me this instant. Quickly!" Carla was a little angry and upset to see her act like this. She pulled her arm and tried to make her stand up.

With Carla's help and urging, Lynn then stood up. However, she was unsteady and needed to rely on Carla. After being confused and disoriented for a while, she then remembered where she was and hurried to pick up her bag from the sofa. Then, she followed Carla out of the room.

Carla turned to look at Lynn and knew that it finally dawned on her, the seriousness of what she did. Her anger then abated. She held Lynn's arm and together, they walked out of the room as quickly as they could.

However, just as they were passing by Johnny's room, the door flew wide open.
