A Moment in Destiny novel Chapter 4


The man turned around in astonishment as he watched Sherry s naked and beautiful back trembling ever so slightly. There was a pause in his heart: Someone had died?


He walked over and sat down in front of her. He saw that blood was dripping out of the corners of her mouth. Apparently, she had bitten her fingers so hard that they were bleeding now. He frowned at this pitiful appearance of her.


“Ƒll go there now! [†Í go now.” Sherry suddenly put down her phone and stood up. However, the pain was like a jolt of electricity coursing through her thighs and it caused her to almost stumble to the floor. The man reached out and helped her to regain her balance.


“What happened?”


Sherry didn† meet his eyes as tears continued to flow. Now that Luke was dead, there was it anything in the world that was of her interest anymore. She had lost her only relative. She had to see Luke now, “I want to ge† out, I want to get out now! I don't want your money anymore, let's end Our contract!”


“Are you sure about that?” The man knitted his brows.


Sherry finally escaped his grip and picked up her shirt and wore them. She couldn't care less about that mas dumbfounded look as she frantically grabbed her bag and all of her stuff. She was going to dart off at any moment.


Before she could do that, the man grabbed her, “There isn't any transport that can send you down the hill at night. Tell me what happened.”


Sherry looked at him with misty eyes, “I want to descend the hill now!”


The man didn't say anything more as he narrowed his deep eyes, “i'll send you down the hill!”


Throughout the whole journey, there wasn’t a single moment when Sherry could stop sobbing. The man silently drove all the way and finally arrived at the hospital.


“lÝ you dorït want to continue this anymore, I won't force this on you too! Take half of the money as compensation!”


Sherry froze for one moment before hurriedly getting off the car. She didn't answer him at all.


The man watched her disappeared into the hospital doors while clutching the steering wheel so hard to the point that his knuckles were pale white.


He removed his mask with annoyance and a face that was so perfect and handsome came into view. His delicate face was marred by his knitted brows. He had a melancholic look on his face...


Sherry rushed to the ward and saw a nurse covering Lukes corpse with a white bed sheet.


“Where's my brother? Where's him?” She asked around maniacally at any chance she got.


“Miss Murray, l'm really sorry. We have tried our best” The attending doctor guilty apologized to Sherry. He wouldn't faze in front of any dying patient since he was in the industry for too long, but this patient was just fifteen. lt was indeed a waste that he couldn't turn any older anymore from that moment on.


Sherry gawked at the fragile and tiny frame of her brother which was now covered entirely by a white cloth, and she couldn't help letting out a wail, “No...”
