Fred staggered backwards, stunned by Steven's reaction.

As a man who was usually so calm and collected, Steven was never really the type of person who'd yell or even go on violent outbursts. Some might say he wouldn't even hurt a fly.

"Mr. Fred, this way please."

Victor walked over and motioned over to the door.

At that point, he resisted the urge of satisfaction as Fred looked up at him, and his eyebrows furrowed in contempt. He had always hated the man, at least now, he'd get a sick sense of reward of seeing him off.

"What? Are you serious?" Fred gaped, blinking at the two men in the room. There was no doubt about the fact that what he said was foul, but it didn't warrant such sensitive reactions. However, even then, Steven didn't back down from his words.

"Do you have no shame? Miss Carla is a friend invited by Mr. Steven, and you had the guts to disrespect her like that? Do you even know who she is?"

Victor took over, snapping at him.

As his words finally settled in, Fred rubbed his face, avoiding their gazes. Without another word, he left. There was no point in staying anyway.

When he reached down the mountains on his way home, he was blindfolded and beaten right to a pulp. Another way to end his already, blasted day. And the one who beat him up, was no other than Terence.

At noon, Steven asked Victor to buy a few boxed meals.

Soon, the extension table was filled with several packed dishes, bowls of soup and rice. It was like a feast fit for soldiers given its quantity.

"I'm sorry. I wanted to bring you here to do sketches...I didn't expect him to be so crass..."

he said apologetically, rubbing the back of his neck.

To his surprise, Carla merely shrugged. She took her chopsticks to grab some vegetables for her rice. "It really doesn't matter. These types of men, I know their tricks like the back of my hand. It's best that I don't take it too seriously."

There was silence as Steven added a few pieces of cooked pork into her rice box. "Carla," he hesitated. "I have something to ask you."

"Go ahead."

After half a day's climbing, Carla was starving. She had already wolfed down the food that was in her box and went ahead and took some more from the other bowls.

"You and Mr. Terence...is it true you're divorced?"

Carla coughed at his question, choking at the rice she was eating. She placed down her chopsticks.

"Who told you that?"

"Is it true?"

Steven didn't bother to answer her.

Carla sipped a bit of soup with her spoon. At first, she was silent, co

r than you. Maybe in your eyes, I'm nothing but a child, but can you give me a chance to prove myself?"

Steven clenched his hands, refusing to look at her in the eyes. He was nervous. That can be said by the beads of sweat trailing down his cheeks.

"I don't care about your condition. If I love a person, even if she can't have a child, I'll still love her. It can't be changed. Love runs deeper than that, right?"

Carla stared blankly at him as he continued to ramble, not sure what to say back.

"I know I have no right to say this here, but this is just my opinion.

If I were Mr. Terence, I wouldn't have agreed to divorce you, even if my father objected or even if the whole world objected! It didn't matter if they didn't agree, as long as we love each other, we'll stick to each other. After several years, everyone would soon get used to your condition anyway so it doesn't really matter!"

Steven said, determined.

"If there's really nothing we could do...then there's always adoption. There's nothing that can't be solved with a little will...

I... I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that."

Finally noticing Carla's bewildered look, Steven lowered his head, knowing that he had stepped out of line.

Carla cleared her throat and took the chopsticks. "Let's eat or the food will get cold."

Steven nodded and began to eat once more.

Right behind Carla and Steven was a maple forest not far across. What they didn't notice was the people behind the bushes and trees.

Through the foliage, Sally was eating chicken drumsticks happily as Rainer held a glass of juice for her.

Unbeknownst to them, Terence was there squinting at Carla and Steven through a telescope.
