Charles knew that he was never a gentleman in love, but no matter how much he missed Linda, he would never do such a thing to destroy the relationship between Linda and John.

But looking at her swollen eyes, Charles couldn't help asking, "You and John..."

Last night, when Charles was in a hurry to make an announcement, he suddenly received a call from John during his break. John said that he came back and wanted to have a get-together, so they made an appointment to meet tonight. Unexpectedly, he met Linda.

"John..." At the mention of that man, tears welled up in Linda's eyes. With a trembling voice, she told Charles what had happened in the past few days.

"How could this be?" Hearing the ins and outs of the matter, Charles was furious, "Is this really the sequela of the car accident a few years ago?"? John would rather believe in James and his sister than believe in Linda who had always loved him deeply.

"Don't worry! I will tell John the truth. Now… How about I drive you back to the hotel? " Looking at the absent-minded Linda, Charles felt sorry for her.

She used to be a lady in the Jin City, but she met John who made her become like this!

The more Charles thought about it, the angrier he became.

"No, thanks." Shaking her head, Linda said, "I'll temporarily live in a friend's house, so I won't bother you. But..."

"I'm going to the municipal hospital now. You can wait for your friend here. Call this number if you want to find me." After saying that, he took out a pen and paper, wrote down his personal number and handed it to Linda.

"Charles… Thank you. " Linda lowered her head and said sincerely, "I really don't know how to repay you."

She was a fool! Looking at the woman's long hair in front of him, Charles wanted to touch it, but… He didn't have the chance.

In a corner that Linda couldn't see, he smiled with self-mockery, and then he said, "Taking care of yourself is the greatest reward for me."

After letting Linda sit in the car and making sure that she would be back soon after she called her friend, Charles could leave with relief.

In the hospital, it happened that the doctor took away Lisa for a reexamination. When John came, there was only an empty bed left in the ward.

James, who had been smart enough to leave enough space for John and Lisa to get along with each other, had already run away. However, he didn't know that Charles would come here.

"Charles?" When John saw his old friend appear in Lisa's ward, there was a touch of surprise in his eyes. But on second thought, he remembered his appointment with Charles and smiled, "What's wrong? You want to have a get-together with me now? "

Charles didn't answer, but he closed the door numbly, threw away his sunglasses and mask, and stared at John with burning eyes.

"What's wrong?" John looked at Charles in confusion.

"Do you really lose your memory or are you a fool?" Charles suppressed his anger all the way and couldn't help bursting out when he saw John standing in the ward.

"What do you mean?" John frowned, but he didn't get angry.

Although he was confused by Charles's sudden words, according to what James said, he and Charles had been friends for many years, and Charles was not so bad-tempered.

"Why do you prefer to believe in James than Linda?" Looking at John's empty ring finger, Charles didn't know why he suddenly felt relieved.

"It's a little complicated. I can't explain it clearly to you." John didn't want to say anything more and was about to leave to look for Lisa.

However, it was obvious that Charles wanted to get to the bottom of the matter. How could he give up?

"Stop!" Charles had reached out his hand and locked the door before John came out, "You must explain it clearly to me today!"

"Explain?" John seemed to have heard a funny joke. He looked at Charles with a smile and said, "You want me to explain it to you because of Linda? Then who can give me an explanation? "

"I..." "If she hadn't done those things, why did she hide them from me? And why did she let me leave L City with her and carefully fake my identity? "

Having been friends for so many years, Charles had never seen the real angry look on John's face, but he had to admit that even if John lost his memory, he still made him feel chilly at this moment.

"Four years! Charles, even if she has many difficulties, she still has thousands of chances to explain to me. Why didn't she say it? Does she really think I'm a fool? "

"Stop!" The more John said, the more outrageous Charles became. Charles finally could not help but punch John hard to wake him up.

"Bang, bang, bang..." Before Charles could say anything to argue with John, the door of the ward was knocked, and then came the soft voice of the nurse, "Mr. John, Mr. John, something happened to Miss Lisa. Could you please go and have a look now?"

In order not to let Charles be found and cause unnecessary noise in the ward,

John specially asked the nurse to lead the way when leaving the ward. Unexpectedly, he saw James coming over just a few steps away.

"John, it's good to see you. Come with me. Lisa..." James looked anxious.

John felt a sudden twitch on his forehead, and a bad feeling rose in his heart. He asked subconsciously, "What's wrong with Lisa?"

Noticing his reaction, James smiled imperceptibly and continued to pretend to be anxious, "Lisa committed suicide!"

"What?" John was stunned, and then he followed James to the doctor's office on the third floor.

Before he reached the office at the end of the corridor, he saw a group of doctors and nurses from a long distance, and even some patients who specially came to look on were surrounding the door.

When John was close to the office, he heard something smashing and the woman's heartbreaking crying, which hit him hard in the heart.

Perhaps it was because James was Lisa's brother that everyone gave way to him as soon as they saw him.

However, there were also rights and wrongs in places with too many people, and even the hospital was no exception.

"Wow, is he the brother of that crazy woman?"

"What a poor man! He was dragged down by his own sister!"

"Yes! I heard that if it weren't for her brother, this woman would have been sent to a psychiatric hospital and waited for death! "

"I don't know if it's a blessing or a suffering for her."

John glared at the talkative man and watched him leave embarrassedly.

"James..." John was about to say something to comfort James.

"I'm fine." Before John could finish his words, James answered.

James shook his head with a bitter smile, "I've heard a lot of such words these years. You can go and see Lisa! "

Looking at James's red eyes, John didn't have the heart to retort. He patted James on the shoulder to comfort him, and then he pushed the door open and entered the office.

Seeing that his sister stopped all her crazy actions as if she was hit by a acupoint, James showed a gratified smile.

He buried his face in his palms excitedly and showed a sinister and complacent smile in a corner that no one could see.

The scene that the two of them had planned a few days ago appeared in front of his eyes.

"Brother, when you let John enter the hospital, you have to play a good play with me!" Lisa said with a malicious smile on her face.

"What play?" He stared blankly at Lisa, who was busy with her make-up.

Now that he had tricked John here, shouldn't she accompany John well? Why did she still stay in the hospital?

Unable to figure out what was on her mind, James asked in a low voice, "Aren't you afraid..."

"Clap…" The mirror was heavily slapped on the bed table by Lisa.

"Of course I'm afraid!" Her disfigured face was full of resentment, as if she was a ghost, "That's why I have to play the trick. I want John to hate Linda to death!"

Thinking of her ambitious plan to control the whole Cheng Group through John, James couldn't help but worry, "Aren't you afraid of falling in love with John?"

Lisa was stunned and suddenly burst into laughter uncontrollably, "As long as I control the Cheng Group, what can't I get in the world?"

She patted her shoulder in disgust and said with disdain, "What is love?"

The sun shone into the ward. James felt dazzling and closed his eyes for a while.

He couldn't help but think of what his father had said before, "If Lisa were a boy, she would be more suitable to inherit my family business than you."

When James was young and impulsive, he thought his father was just kidding.

Now it seemed that he had to admit that his sister was a master of guessing people's minds.

Before he could be complacent for a long time, a voice suddenly sounded behind him, "Mr. James, you said the money that we acted for you..."

He restrained his emotions and smiled kindly, "This is not a good place to talk. How about we go out and eat while talking?"

The two men came here for money. How could they miss such a windfall?

The three of them put their hands on each other's shoulders and left the office.

In the ward…

Lisa stared blankly at the man who closed the door, "John… John…"

She reached out her trembling hand to grab him, but quickly she retracted it as if she was afraid of disturbing her beautiful dream.

Lisa… In John's memory, the woman with bright eyes and bright teeth was now disheveled with long hair, and her slender body was covered with large and small, or new or old wounds.

John felt his throat was hoarse and could not say a word for a long time.

"Sure enough… I was dreaming. " Without getting any response from him, the woman on the bed smiled.

But her tone was so desolate, "Why will John come to see me? It seems that I am dreaming... "
