(Nancy's son)

"Okay, I am relieved to hear that. I hope he has a speedy recovery." Autumn finally got some relief. She didn't ask anything further about it because she strongly believed that Charles and Andy would deal him for her.     

Meanwhile, Ferry asked his man to go head and schedule an appointment with Leila. She came to the cafe they chose soon after Burke left for work. This cafe was not easily known to others so they didn't have to worry about being seen by someone they knew.     

Ferry went to great lengths to ensure he had gotten rid of the detectives arranged by Andy and headed straight to the cafe as Leila had already been waiting for him for over an hour.     

Leila didn't blame Ferry for tardiness and instinctively stood up as he entered the room.   

"Sorry, I'm late for our appointment." Ferry had spend a lot of time and energy to get rid of Andy's men. Now Leila was the only one he could turn to for help to deal with Autumn, bearing that important role in mind he spoke to Leila with extreme politeness.    

 "What would you like to drink?" Ferry asked Leila.     

"Nothing really, thank you." Leila asked, "Why did you call for this urgent and sudden meeting here? Is everything alright?"    

Leila was a little scared of Ferry so she always talked respectfully and also carefully.    

 Ferry smiled and replied to Leila, "Don't be nervous. I will not eat you up."    

Leila was rendered speechless and then Ferry added, "I came here to inform you that owing to some unforeseen incidents I have move to another place for a while and I'm afraid I won't be able to return soon, with that said to achieve your plan now you can only depend on yourself. I cannot extend my support at this time."  

"What are you saying?" Leila was shocked by what Ferry said. She then replied with broaden eyes, "Hmm... what do you mean by that?    

 You promised me you would help me unite with Charles under any cost and I always trusted you, but now you tell me that I must do all of this all by myself. Are you kidding?" Leila was irritated and angry. She lost her temper on Ferry and could not conceal it.     

"Don't get so worked up and emotional. Before reacting any further just hear me out" Ferry pulled her down to take her seat and said, "Now both Charles and Autumn already know and think that you have a boyfriend, so it is better if you don't approach them for a while. Just let them believe that you love your boyfriend very much and are happy. That is the best option now."  

"But if I let Charles believe that I have really fallen in love with another man, will he still be open to the thought of being with me?" Leila asked in a concerned tone.    

 "You will need to find an appropriate excuse to break up with your boyfriend. Just remember, you don't try to bother Autumn and Charles in any way and I'll work out all the logistics for you," Ferry assured her and tried to regain her trust. 

But Leila was adamant and didn't take his advice. She stared at Ferry as she blurted out, "No, this is not how it will work this time. Now, you must tell me all the details of your plan, if not, I chose not to listen to you any further."  

  Ferry was very angry and offended with her response but constrained his emotions in a bid to regain Leila's trust and cooperation. He got close to Leila's ear and told her everything. Upon hearing the plan, Leila was shocked and inquired with her eyes wide open, "Can this really work?"  

"I promise you that one day in the near future you will be with Charles so long as you do all what I just told you. Now believe it or not, the plan solely depends on you." Then Ferry relaxed back into his seat with an air of confidence.  

   Leila frowned and considered all what he said for a moment, realized the gravity of his plan and nodded her head. She said, "Okay, I believe you and extend my support."    She looked at Ferry and added, "I will do anything for you as long as you can help me be with Charles. This has always been my unwavering motivation and intention for lending support. Bear that in mind."   

 "OK." Ferry let a sly smile take over his face.    

 Despite Autumn's help, Nancy also had to take care of Brent every day in the hospital because he was grievously hurt. Autumn worried that all this would tire Nancy a lot, so she told Nancy that she didn't have to work till her son had completely recovered.   

Nancy was very grateful for Autumn's unwavering support but she still chose to prepare breakfast for Autumn every morning. One day she came to the hospital with breakfast for Brent. He was much better now and had almost recovered completely. She opened the meal box and said to Brent, "Please have some breakfast now."  

  Even though she went everyday to take care of him, his attitude towards her was always remained cold and distant. But today something seemed different, he suddenly grabbed Nancy by her hand and said, "Mom... I'm sorry. I am so sorry for everything."    

Nancy looked into Brent's eyes and asked, "Why did you apologize son?"    

She still remembered the day she approached Ferry, for Brent and watched him beg him to let her replace him as Ferry's hostage. This made Nancy realize and see clearly that even though Brent was her son, he had become a cold hearted bastard just like his father who had lost all his love for his mother after being with that man for so many years.  

 She couldn't see her son die and not help his situation so she chose to do the best thing she could and that was to take care of him. When he recovered, she wouldn't have anything to do with him, not after how things unfolded.     

"I know you are still disappointed and angry with me and you have all the right to be." Brent let out a bitter smile and said to Nancy, "I have thought a lot what I would say to you over these past few days. I was brought up only by my father who always spoke ill of you and how you abandoned us. Without questioning it ever, it became a part of my reality. He told me that you never cared about me, but now I know and I can see that you love me, if you did not, you wouldn't manage to pay the money for me or save me in any means. I have wronged you and I deeply regret it."  

Nancy looked at Brent with her tear-filled eyes. She felt like all the pain she held in her heart was washed away as her son finally understood her. She turned around and wiped her tears. Then she said, "I'll never abandon you because you are my son. It is in my blood to love you. I often came back and tried to see you, but your father never allowed me to see you openly. Even though I always bought some presents for you, I did not dare to give them to you because I was afraid that you wouldn't accept them simply because they were from me."   

 Nancy gave a faint smile, "Now your behaviors and nature seem the same as your father. With that I decided that I won't bother you in your life if you don't want to regard me as your mother. You can do anything you wish after you recover and I will not stop you."   

 Nancy understood that she had caused so much trouble to Lu family, so she decided to make up for Autumn and ensure that Autumn gave birth to her babies safely.   

"Mom, are you still angry with me?" Brent grabbed Nancy's hands nervously and said, "I have realized all my grave mistakes. Mom, I was too scared to have said all that nonsense without giving it any second thought. I swear I didn't do that on purpose and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me for my naive behavior."    

"Brent." Nancy sighed and sat in front of Brent. After pausing for a brief moment, she said, "I forgive you."    

At such a crucial and intimidating situation, this was his instinct reaction, reflecting his true inner thoughts. So how could she blame him for the thoughts his father ingrained in his head?    

 She also blamed herself for not staying with him all these years when she could have taught him how to be a good person.     

"Thank you, mom. I am so happy to hear you say that." Brent breathed with relief and contentment as he reflected on what Nancy said.
