Prev Chapter Next Chapter
&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William could not accept that he would not see Sherry anymore; he would get mad about it. He was
almost losing his voice to say, “Do you love me? You do! Why let me go?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry looked at him and said, “I don’t love you now. Ok?” She talked about these to hurt William. But if
she did not do it, she would keep William with her further. Sherry hated to feel so shameful. “I loved you
because you were a reliable man! Now, look at you! You are not determined, even two-timing me. How
will I love you more?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But she was still heartbroken as soon as seeing William’s wound on face. He turned to leave; she was
almost going to keep him to melt his loneliness and sadness. However, …
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;In such an entanglement involving three people, she would be a loser for sure. Lucille had to live with
William for her whole life. Without William, how could Lucille live on? Sherry hated to see Lucille live as
a walking dead just because Sherry herself was selfish to keep William.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Even if she made it to keep William with her, she would not get relieved from the trouble she made to
Lucille forever.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Finally, Sherry preferred to be the heartless one.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William said sadly, “Well. I will go…”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry gave a cold answer, “Bye-bye!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William left. When the door was closed, Sherry could not be more sorrowful.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Just then, she heard some noise in the kitchen and soon she got the bad smell from something being
burnt which caused her feel unwell. Then she remembered the fried eggs should be burnt.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The kitchen and room were full of the burning smell which was failed to be finished by a range Hood
soon. Sherry was having a nausea and turned off the gas to rush to the toilet.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But she just retched, nothing coming out.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;When feeling better, she stood beside the washing basin to look at herself and started to be pale on
face.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She got the overwhelmed fear…
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her period should come two weeks ago… but now?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;No!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was in great panic.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She touched her belly by instinct. If she really kept the baby with William, they would fail to break up.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Staggering out of the toilet, Sherry sat on the sofa and burst into tears. She looked at the outside view
to see the plane trees with many leaves off. It was winter then…
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Leaves would be off the trees even though they were unwilling.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Whatever, Sherry knew she had to let William go. She could not take the result of keeping him.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She could not take anything lovely in the world.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry decided to take all the pains to make William not feel guilty.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Then her mobile phone rang. She picked up the unexpected call from John, asking, “Hello, Mr. John
Rowland, when will you let Dan come back to me? He is my son.”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John asked her, “You just asked about Dan. How about Sammy? Are you going to give up the son?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was stunned and said, “Sorry, Mr. Rowland?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John said, “I said I will let Sammy go back to be with you.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“But…” Before Sherry continued to say more, John interrupted her, “Sherry, may I meet you to have a
talk? I am just on the alley outside your home. Please come to see me.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was surprised to hear it, “You are there.” She might have been stalked secretly by someone, or
how did he know her home address?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But John said he would let Sammy come back.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry kept calm. She knew John might have to do the choice after comparing Lucille with her.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was the next best one; at least she was better than Lucille who was unable to give birth to a baby.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry smiled bitterly; parents always worried about their children. John tried to consider for his own
son as much as possible, but he had not known what William really thought about. What a pity to the
father!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;After losing his wife, John should be very lonely in his life for not marrying anyone else. How deeply he
loved his wife! He was greatly respected for it.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Seeing John who was grim without a smile, Sherry started to think about William. She did not know
how he was.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry called him with ill-at-ease, “Mr. John Rowland.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John said, “Sherry, how about letting Sammy go back to you?”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Although Sherry had already got the news on the phone, she was still surprised by what she heard
then. She asked, “Why do you change your mind?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John asked instead of answering, “Have you really broken up with William?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry said with a smile, “You get to know everything.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John was doubtful, “What’s the reason?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry raised her head and answered, “It’s not working between us. As I can predict the result, we
don’t need to keep each other further. Besides, what are you requesting for letting Sammy coming
back?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John looked at her with his sharp eyes and said, “You are smart!” He found, so young as Sherry, she
was calm but with some sorrow on the look.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mr. John Rowland, may I call you Mr. Rowland? You are too senior in the family and also Sammy’s
grandpa; I really appreciate that you allow Sammy to come back. But I know I cannot take him right
now.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;The answer surprised John. He asked, “Why?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry said calmly, “Because I would not like my son to be a condition for a deal. Sammy is only a boy.
May I ask you not to do it? Mr. Rowland, please don’t negotiate with me about my son. I will not accept
it.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Why?” John asked again, “What if I accept your relationship? Will you promise me?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mr. Rowland, so you choose me to be the third person in the relationship, or choose Ms. Lucille
Mclean?”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John did not expect the question, “Now you are negotiating with me?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“No. How could I? I only know Sammy needs his daddy and mommy, but he was unlucky to have both
with him together. You said you will let Sammy come back with me; I also see you have some condition
for it. The condition is so nice that Ms. Mclean has been waiting for years but failed. Finally, I will get it
with my son. I should be happy with this. But, Mr. Rowland, I am so silly, or self-willed; I know if I
accepted your condition, I would feel guilty about owing to Ms. Mclean all my life.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John did not expect Sherry to refuse his offer and give such a reason. He saw her power in the young
lady’s eyes. He said, “Sherry, may I check that why you refused my offer is to help William and Lucille?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry said peacefully, “No, I am not so nice to them. I am helping myself. Sammy needs daddy and he
will be fine to live with William. I won’t keep William with myself; I will neither take Sammy since he is
your grandson. You are not the one who gives up your grandson easily. You are so powerful. Why do I
try to fight with you?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was insincere to talk about it. She knew how sad she was then. What happened to her? She was
giving up her son? No! She was not giving up Sammy! She just could not take him at that moment.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John asked, “You mean if I don’t offer you the condition and just allow you to meet Sammy, you will
take him with you?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sure. Mr. Rowland, if you allow me to see Sammy without any condition, I am sure I will not take him
away. He is your grandson anyway; I will be glad to see him once in a while. I feel very sorry for
Sammy. I am not a good mommy, but still hate to leave terrible memory to my little son. I am just trying
to love him as much as possible.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Don’t you want to be William’s wife?” John was totally astonished, “Did you have a good trip in
Hokkaido?”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry lowered her head and controlled her sadness, just saying, “Mr. Rowland, what is happiness?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John said with frown; he started to be afraid there was something wrong with his investigation, “So, you
said you were unhappy?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“We were very joyful at the beginning. But Ms. Mclean showed up, then I was left somewhere in a
strange country without even one penny with me. You think I was happy?” Sherry raised her head; her
eyes were clear to show her want less.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John asked more, “You hate William?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry shook her head, “No, I don’t hate him. He is reliable who is unusual in the modern world. I
believe he will be a nice partner, but not belonging to me.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What if I hope you can marry William?” John watched her eyes, only to see her unconcern and
coldness. He knew it was tough to persuade her.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry said with a smile, “Mr. Rowland, you give me the offer just because Ms. Mclean cannot have a
baby. If she could, you would not say no to their marriage. They are a perfect couple and love each
other; why say no? Finally, Ms. Mclean cannot have a baby, so I had one for William on our deal. Mr.
Rowland, you don’t like Ms. Mclean just for her infertility; you don’t like me for my poor family and my
fault. Comparing between us, I should be worse than her; you should look down upon me. I was a
surrogating mommy ever. Now you think again but choose me as William’s wife. I really appreciate your
choice! But I will not marry William!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You are still smart!” John sneered, “If you don’t agree, I might not allow you to see Sammy forever.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Mr. Rowland, are you that cruel?” Sherry watched him without any fear. “You are a father; you know
what parents think for children. Are you so mean to do it to me?”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You think I will allow him to see you? If someone else married William, should I allow Sammy to meet
his biological mommy?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was helpless and stood up; she was leaving, “Please give him a nice step-mommy.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry, you change my mind! You are perfect to be William’s wife, with great courage and without any
emotional connection with anything. This is my first time to know some woman who is willing to give up
her child!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Not saying anything, Sherry kept silent and stubborn.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;John continued to say, “Have nothing to say?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry had a deep breath to hold back her tears.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;
