"What happened?" Sophia looked down and noticed Mandy's swollen ankle. Horrified, she asked, "How can you be so careless? This looks painful, Mandy.

Get up and I'll take you to the doctor." Sophie went to grab her coat. But the words that came out of Mandy's mouth brought her to a halt.

"Sophia, Jacob decided to break up with me."

"What did you just say?" Disbelief was etched over Sophia's face. Once again, she swatted next to Mandy and said, "Today is not April Fool's Day. Try this some other time."

Mandy couldn't help but cry. "Sophia, I've done something terrible. I betrayed Jacob. What should I do? Tell me, what should I do to rectify my mistake?"

Sophia had difficulty digesting this news. Gently, she held Mandy in her arms and patted her head. "It's okay. No matter what happens, I'm here with you."

Lying in her arms, Mandy cried hysterically and slowly fell asleep.

When she woke up again, it was already evening. Mandy struggled to open her eyes. When she got up, she noticed she was wearing pajamas. Her injured ankle had also been carefully treated and wrapped with gauze.

"Sophia?" she called out in a hoarse and unpleasant voice.

However, she didn't receive any response. She willed herself to stand up and walked toward the door. Just then, she heard a sound coming from outside.

Somehow, she remained there, trying to eavesdrop.

"When shall we go get the shares?"

"What? Why do I have a feeling you regret it? Are you still in love with that bitch? Then get back together with her."

"Enough. We'll meet there tomorrow."

Then, Sophia spoke in a low voice. She was whispering to the person on the phone as if she was talking to her boyfriend. She was walking toward the dorm room. Many came back to her senses and pretended that she heard nothing.

When Sophia opened the door and entered, she was startled by the sight of Mandy standing near the door. Her pupils expanded and panic coursed through her body. At this moment, she looked like a deer caught in the headlights. "Sophia, what have you been?" Mandy asked.

Composing herself, Sophia put on a smile and said, "I had an important call from work. Are you hungry? The dinner I bought for you is still in the heat preservation box. Would you like to eat now?"

Supported by her, Mandy walked back to the bed and sat down. "No, I want to sleep," she announced.

Sophia wouldn't take no for an answer. She brought the food and sat beside Mandy. When she unscrewed the lid, the wonderful fragrance of the chicken soup wafted in the air. She scooped up the soup and helped Mandy eat. "Drink a little at least, Mandy. This is important for your health. Also, you can't sleep properly unless your stomach is full."

Seeing the care and love with which Sophia was treated her, Mandy's heart softened. She forgot all about the suspicion that had risen in her heart after she overheard the phone conversation. After drinking half a bowl of soup, she went back to sleep.

That night, Mandy's sleep was nowhere close to peaceful. She dreamed of the cold expression she had seen on Jacob's face. Next, she saw the murderous look with which the stranger had strangled her.

All these nightmares made it impossible for her to sleep well. Finally, she decided she didn't want to sleep any more. Instead, she motionlessly lay in the bed, staring at the ceiling.

Her eyes were adapted to darkness so she clearly saw Sophia entering the bathroom. She was tiptoeing like she was afraid of waking Mandy up.

When she came out, she was all dressed up. Mandy couldn't help but ask, "Sophia, where are you going?"

Perhaps it was her imagination, but Sophia's body stiffened when she heard her call. "Why are you awake so early? You should try to sleep more. I have something urgent to deal with. Once I am back, I will keep you company. "


Mandy agreed and watched her leave. A few minutes later, she got out of the bed in a hurry, picked a coat, put on her shoes and limped out.

Fortunately, Sophia was walking at a slow pace. Without much difficulty, Mandy managed to catch up with her. Afraid of being recognized, she pulled her hair in front of her eyes.

Her heart was thudding against her chest. She didn't want to be recognized. Sophia entered a teahouse. The waiter noticed something strange about Mandy's behavior. She asked him to give her a box next to the one Sophia was sitting in.

To her advantage, the walls were made of planks, making the sound insulation effect pretty useless. Mandy held the menu in her hands but her attention was elsewhere. Straining her head, she was trying to hear what was happening in the next box.

"Miss, what kind of tea do you want?" the waiter asked impatiently. She wasn't even addressing his presence.

Mandy came to her senses and casually pointed at a name on the menu. "This one, thank you."

The waiter wrote down the name and left. As soon as he left, she let out a sigh of relief. She heard someone speak in the next box. "Andrew! Don't think you are free to do as you please just because you are my uncle. You've even slept with my girlfriend. Do you know what will happen when people come to know about it?"

In an instant, she knew who was the man speaking. It was none other than Jacob, the

man she had loved for the past three years.

"What do you want from me, Jacob?" a cold voice asked.

"You must transfer ten percent of the company's shares to me. Otherwise, I won't let go of this matter," Jacob said filled with determination.

Listening to this, the other man laughed and said, "In order to get the shares, you drugged your own girlfriend and sent her to your uncle's bed! I haven't seem a man as shameless as you.

I won't even give you one percent, let alone ten percent. Try all you want, you can't get money out of me!"

The waiter brought the tea. He noticed Mandy's face had turned pale. "Miss, are you okay? Is there something I can do for you?" he asked, thinking she was ill.

Mandy took the teacup in her hands as she listened to their conversation.

"Mr. Lin, think twice before you say something. People are going to laugh when they hear that Jacob's uncle has slept with his girlfriend," said a woman.

The waiter noticed Mandy was about to drink the hot tea. He went ahead and warned her. Once she came back to her senses, the steaming tea spilled on her hand.

"Miss!" the waiter exclaimed.

He thought she would scream with pain. But to his surprise, she just gazed at him and said in a hoarse voice, "What should I do?"

"What?" The waiter couldn't understand what she was talking about. She got up from her seat, and made her way to the box where the discussion was happening.

Rage pulsed through her veins. All this while, she had a cup of hot tea in her hand. Without any hesitation, she poured it on Jacob's face.

As soon as the hot tea touched his skin, he yelped. Covering his face with his hands, he jumped out of the room. Instead of being ashamed at being caught, he rushed towards Mandy and raised his hand to slap her.

Mandy stepped back, trying to dodge his slap, but in the process she ended up falling.

"Are you insane?" Jacob asked with exasperation.

It took Mandy a few seconds to digest the scene in front of her. Her best friend and boyfriend had cheated on her. She laughed like a maniac and asked, "Did you drug me and send me to your uncle?"

A look of shame swept through Jacob's eyes. He turned his head, trying to avoid her eyes.

He had done a shameful thing yet he didn't have the guts to own up his mistake. The room fell into silence.

It was broken by Sophia.

Standing in front of Mandy, she slapped her. The slap was as hard that it stung her face. "Mandy, when will you learn your lesson? How dare you follow me, bitch!"

Mandy's face was numb with pain. She looked back and forth between her good friend and her ex-boyfriend.

After regaining her composure, Mandy looked straight into Sophia's eyes. "Sophia, where did you learn to become a mistress? You are pretty good at this." Mandy got some satisfaction as she watched Sophia's face turn pale.

Now that she had tackled Sophia and Jacob, her attention went to the stranger from the hotel. "Mr. Lin, right? I have broken up with this scumbag two days ago. So basically, you didn't sleep with your nephew's girlfriend. I am his ex and that makes his threat invalid."

Jacob interrupted angrily, "Mandy, what nonsense are you blabbering? When did we break up?"

Mandy looked at him and answered calmly, "Just two days ago. Is there something wrong with your ears? Didn't you hear what I just said?"

A fresh swell of rage rose in Jacob.

He still wanted to say something, but Sophia moved forward and stopped him from continuing. Even though they had lost this game, she feigned a smile and turned to Andrew. "Mr. Lin, I want you to give it another thought. After all, it will be embarrassing for you if people come to know about it. I'll call you later."

After saying that, she held Jacob's hand and walked out of the teahouse.

Looking at them leave, Mandy didn't know what to do. She wanted to follow them and spit curses. Gritting her teeth, she swallowed her rage.

If she made a scene, nothing good would come out of it. If anything, her image would get tarnished. She couldn't make it so easy for them.

Suddenly, a sound came from behind. Andrew stood up and was now taking his coat. When Mandy looked him, memories of yesterday rushed to her mind. She vividly remembered how his cold hand clutched her neck in the hotel suite. Her body trembled at the thought of it.

Holding back her fear, she said "Mr. Lin, please wait a moment."

Andrew stopped but didn't turn around.

"Mr. Lin, they framed both of us. And now they have the audacity to threaten us! We are both victims. How about we join hands and take revenge?"

As soon as she spoke, she regretted it. She knew he had a bad temper.

Andrew turned around and gazed at her. "Who do you think you are? Why are you talking about cooperation with me?"

His words silenced her. He went on, "When it comes to cooperation, people think about benefits. Could you give me money, power or connections?

I'm sorry but you don't have anything to offer. You are just a helpless girl who doesn't have the ability to take revenge. You know that very well which is why you are begging for my help. Moreover, you picked Jacob as your boyfriend. Let's just say you paid for your stupidity.

As for me, I have my own methods to make him pay"
