Yvonne Gu fled from her wedding! As described by the media, this was to be the wedding of the century. However, now it might just become a joke!

Autumn Ye looked at herself in the mirror. She heavily stamped on the wedding dress lying flat on the floor and thought to herself, 'Why? Why do I have to clear up the mess created by Yvonne Gu?'

"Go on! If you are still furious, there are ten more dresses that you can stamp on!" Wendy Ye, Autumn Ye's mother, gave her a stern look.

Autumn Ye's heart sank. She stood still and took a deep breath before she began speaking, "I'm in desperate need of money to pay Grandmother's medical fee. I'll marry Charles Lu instead of Yvonne Gu as soon as I get the money."

With a wry smile on face, Wendy Ye shoved out her cell phone from her pocket, called her secretary and said, "Miss Zhang, call the Hospital Administrator."

After hanging up the phone, Wendy Ye went to see Autumn Ye. Wendy Ye was irked to see her in a bland wedding dress. She walked up to Autumn Ye with a pair of scissors in hand.

With a dejected look she raised the scissors and said, "Don't you dare look at me like that. Despite you being my daughter, every time I see you, you remind me of your useless father. Don't blame me for abandoning you. People should be selfish and look out only for themselves."

Wendy Ye cut open Autumn Ye's dress, and made a big hole in the sleeve.

Wendy Ye turned to the salesperson waiting outside the room and yelled, "Don't just keep standing there. The wedding dress is ripped. Get her a new one! Our Yvonne is not any ordinary person. She deserves the best wedding dress."

Autumn Ye twitched her nose. It was the first time that Wendy Ye admitted that she was her daughter. But she was immediately dejected as Wendy Ye told the world Yvonne Gu was her beloved daughter and she was only a substitute.

Autumn Ye bit her cracked lower lip and laughed scornfully, "My father was indeed a useless man as he married a woman like you who is okay being the woman for Uncle Gu. I'd be more than happy to see other woman seducing Uncle Gu just like you did."

"Shut up! Don't you dare!" Wendy Ye was enraged with anger. She raised her hand and was about to slap her right on the face. But then she saw Autumn Ye's flawless makeup. Her mesmerizing beauty was enough to calm her down. "I won't argue with you today. Anyway, just get married with Charles Lu and don't create a scene! Don't disgrace the Gu Clan and Yvonne!" Wendy Ye sternly instructed.

Autumn Ye smirked.

Charles Lu? The man was rich and powerful. His name had been linked to innumerable ladies. He had different girlfriends for every day of a year. 'Why does Charles Lu want to marry Yvonne Gu?' Autumn Ye wondered.

"Just get through this wedding! Although you don't know Charles Lu, it is quite a decent wedding. I feel really bad about abandoning you, but you will be a rich person and enjoy nice things from now on. It's time we write off all our old scores and start afresh!"

Hearing her mother's words, all the feelings that Autumn Ye had long bottled up inside her gushed out in the form of tears. Tears were running down her cheeks. 'Even a vicious tiger will never treat its cubs the way my mother treats me.' She thought to herself.

Autumn Ye grabbed the wedding dress fiercely while still trembling.

"Fine! I'll marry him! I promise you I will marry Charles Lu in the name of Yvonne Gu. But... from now on, I'm not your daughter. You have no right to interfere in my life. Besides, if anything happens to grandma, I won't spare you!"

"As long as you marry Charles Lu, I will do anything you say."

Wendy Ye had never been so

nice to Autumn Ye. This time she would do anything for her in exchange of selling her to Charles Lu. Years later, when Autumn Ye remembered this moment, she sighed for the unpredictable fate. This wedding which put her into despair then happened to give her the strongest protection later in life. Those things that she never thought would happen just happened.

"The wedding is going to start. Hurry up, bride!"

The wedding was conducted as scheduled. White wedding dress, red carpet, flowers, and guests... The wedding was as grand as the one people saw on big screens. But Autumn Ye's heart was as cold as ice. She was emotionless.

Though it was a grand wedding, Autumn Ye didn't even take a look at her husband. The guests present smiled at the couple, but Autumn Ye felt that everyone around was simply mocking her as she was in limbo at the very first day of her wedding.

Although Charles Lu held her hand tightly, she didn't even speak to him at all. After the wedding, Charles Lu shook her hand off aggressively and said, "You go home first. I have work to finish."

Autumn Ye was sent back with Charles Lu's driver. She curiously asked him where did Charles Lu go. It seemed Charles Lu's driver was well aware about his whereabouts. The driver indifferently said, "Lily Villa."

"Lily Villa?" It was rumored that Rachel Bai, a female celebrity, lived in the Lily Villa. Autumn Ye gave an uninterested smile. It seemed that the rumor was true and Rachel Bai was indeed her husband's girlfriend. Charles Lu must be hugging Rachel Bai and comforting her at this moment. Since he already had a girlfriend, it wouldn't be hard for him to accept Autumn Ye's offer.

Autumn Ye had waited for Charles Lu in their wedding room for a long time. The room was full of wedding vibes, but Autumn Ye was not in the mood of romance or affection.

She thought Charles Lu would not come back tonight. So, she got up and went to the bathroom to change her clothes and freshen up.

She spent a long time in the bathroom as she was really tired both physically and mentally. A lot of things happened today and she needed to ponder hard on them.

The heat was high in the bathroom and covered the mirror with steam. Autumn Ye's mind was in a complete mess.

Wendy Ye, Yvonne Gu, Charles Lu, and Rachel Bai stuck in Autumn Ye's mind.

She was losing her cool.

She took a warm bath. Thereafter, she wrapped herself in a towel. She used another towel to dry her hair. When she came out of the bathroom, she saw Charles Lu sitting in the room with a straight face.

The room was dark. Only a wall lamp was turned on. But the darkness in the room was nothing in comparison to the darkness on Charles Lu's face.

In her more than 20 years of life, it was the first time that she wore such little clothes in front of a man.

On seeing Charles Lu, she immediately turned around and got hold of her clothes. But Charles Lu stopped her and caught hold of her. He threw her on the bed. "Seems like, you are so desperate to spend the wedding night with me?" Charles Lu remarked in a taunting tone.

She only had a towel covering her. The water was dripping drop by drop from her wet hair. Though she had already wiped off the thick bridal makeup, Charles Lu's eyes couldn't get enough of her bare face.

Charles Lu could smell the fragrance of his own body wash. He felt as if she was overwhelmed by his strong sweet smell. The very thought of it ignited his lusty desire.

But he immediately regained his composure when the thought of Rachel Bai's teary eyes came to his mind.

He and Rachel Bai had been together for two years. He couldn't let her down like that.
