Julia smiled bitterly. "So in your heart, you think I'm that type of person, right?"

She was desperate.

Mandy looked at Julia with an unchanging expression. "Stop this nonsense. You better prepare the money as soon as possible."

"Mom, I..." Julia stumbled, wanting to protest back. But she was cut off. "Enough! You can leave now. Just prepare the money as soon as you get back."

At that very moment, Julia knew that her mother would no longer change her mind.

She had been taking care of her for the last three years. But Julia didn't expect that Mandy still favored Jean more.

In a bitter tone, Julia asked, "You've already made up your mind, haven't you?"

"Of course." Mandy nodded her head. "Jean is not as lucky as you are. You married Terence and lived a comfortable life. Jean has only me. If I don't help her, who will?"

"Well, now that I know that. I have nothing left to say." Julia took a deep breath and forced herself to calm down. Putting on a brave smile, she replied, "I will only give you the money if you agree to one condition."

"What is it?" Mandy arched an eyebrow in curiosity.

"If you take the money, I will break all relations with you. It seems that ever since the beginning, you've only treated Jean as your daughter. Now that she is back, you won't be needing me anymore." Julia didn't know why she said that. Maybe it was because her heart was hurting.

She also wanted to know what else Mandy was willing to do for Jean.

If Mandy agreed, then Julia would pretend that she never had a mother.

"It was not easy for you to raise me. But during the last three years, I had given you all the money I had. After I give you the ten million, we're done." Julia stared at her mother without blinking. She didn't want to miss the expression on Mandy's ace. "From now on, I will live my own life. And you will live your life as if you never had me. What do you think?

If you agree, I'll begin to prepare the money."

"Okay," Mandy agreed without hesitation.

Julia hoped that she would think about it. If Mandy hesitated, it would have proved that Julia still had a place in her mother's heart.

But she didn't. She agreed without an inch of hesitation.

At that moment, Julia felt like a prisoner who had been sentenced to her death. She felt like she was standing underneath a dark sky.

Taking a deep breath, Julia masked a brave smile. "Well, I'm leaving now. Take care of yourself!"

From now on, she would have nothing.

When she walked out of Mandy's apartment, it started to rain. Instead of hailing a taxi, she took the bus to Consuela's apartment.

Drenched from the rain, Julia rang the doorbell. Just as Consuela opened the front door, Julia fainted.

She was sick.

After enduring one blow after another, Julia finally fell ill.

While she rested, she had a long dream where Terence, Jean, and Mandy were not there.

Everything looked so wonderful.

As Julia slowly opened her eyes,

she found herself in the hospital. From the corner of her eye, she saw Consuela nervously grabbing the doctor's hand, her voice laced with anxiousness. "Doctor, how is she now?"

"She's all right now. I think she's just under a lot of pressure. To top it all that, she also got wet in the rain, which was why she fainted. It also seems like she hasn't been eating as much. You should take care of her and make sure that she has her meals on time," the doctor patiently explained.

"Okay, I understand." Consuela nodded in response. When the doctor left, she saw that Julia had already woken up.

"You scared me! Why did you get wet in the rain? No matter how sad you were, you shouldn't have been neglecting your body like this." Consuela scolded through gritted teeth.

"I'm fine." Julia lightly chuckled, her face as pale as a ghost.

As she struggled to sit up, Consuela hurried over to help her. "What are you doing? The doctor said that you need more rest."

"But I..." She wanted to prepare the money as soon as possible.

"Even if the sky falls, you will be resting here," Consuela angrily said. "It's just a man! You lost him, but it's easy to find another. Why were you looking for death?"

"No, I..." Julia said helplessly.

"Stop lying!" Consuela's face darkened. She hadn't paid attention to Julia for a while. Now, Julia was confined in the hospital. Consuela flamed in anger. "Look at yourself. Do you think that man will feel sorry for you when he sees you like this? I will tell you now to stop dreaming."

Her voice got a little bit louder. "He is probably holding another woman in his arms laughing at you. Julia, you can't go on like this. If you continue to be this way, you're not only going to hurt your friends, but also make your enemies happy. He's not worth it."

"Don't worry. I won't." A flash of determination appeared on Julia's face.

Although Consuela misunderstood her, she didn't want to explain anymore.

She didn't have anything to lose anymore, so there was nothing for her to be afraid of.

After Julia had stayed over at the hospital for a night, the doctor told her that she could finally go home. Consuela immediately went over to the reception to go through the discharge formalities.

Just as she was about to leave the hospital, Julia ran into Nelson.

He was one of Terence's childhood friends and also one of the few who knew about her relationship with Terence.

"Mrs. Chen." With a big smile on his face, Nelson walked up to Julia.

With a sad smile,

she told Nelson, "You shouldn't call me that anymore. Terence and I are divorced. Just call me Julia."

Nelson shrugged and asked, "Why are you here?"

Julia's face remained pale. With a shy smile, she explained, "I caught a cold, so I stayed here for one night. I feel much better now."

Consuela had already finished going through the discharge formalities. With a wave of her hand, Julia politely excused herself. "I'm leaving now."
