Autumn frowned a little. Obviously, she had no choice but to go with them. From the limo across the street, she had already guessed the identity of their boss.

By the look Rachel gave her when she left the office, she knew something was going to happen, but it never occurred to her that it could happen so soon.

"Move." The men in black pushed her forward. Autumn quietly walked towards the limo.

The men in black opened the door, Rachel was sitting inside with a pair of sunglasses on. Even though Autumn couldn't see Rachel's eyes, she could feel a trace of contempt in her eyes.

She got in the limo. The door was closed from behind, leaving her and Rachel alone in this spacious limo.

Rachel took off her sunglasses and began speaking. "Mrs. Lu. Nice to meet you."

She looked at Autumn. There was hostility in Rachel's eyes.

Autumn remained calm. Although she admitted that she didn't show Rachel her respect back in the office, she didn't feel guilty or fearful. She knew she had not done anything wrong.

She looked at her watch to see the time and coldly said, "Miss Bai, you are a superstar and I have to get back to my office now to resume work. Time is precious for both of us. Why don't you cut the long story short and tell me why am I here?"

Only two of them were seated in the limo, so Rachel didn't feel the need to be thoughtful or considerate. She threatened to her by saying, "Ms. Gu, though I addressed you as Mrs. Lu, I have to remind you that you are only temporarily playing this role for me. You must clearly understand why Charles married you."

"Sure." Autumn nodded casually. "We are just under an agreement. There is nothing happening between us. You don't have anything to worry about."

"Bullshit!" Rachel cursed Autumn, which made Autumn frown. So Rachel soon realised she had been rude. Then she cleared her throat to shift Autumn's attention. She continued saying. "Yvonne Gu, don't you dare think that I can't see through your mind. I guess you don't want to let this wonderful husband of yours go away so easily, huh? Tell me, what did you do to win his heart?"

Charles had distanced himself from Rachel since he married Autumn.

He even forgot his promise to visit her while she was working. Rachel felt their love was fading.

At first, Rachel only felt unhappy about the entire thing. But now when she saw "Yvonne" in person, she was panicking.

Back in time, when Charles was selecting his wife, Rachel recommended Yvonne herself. All she knew then was that she was an ignorant and bad-tempered woman from a rich family.

But look at this "Yvonne"! She was not ignorant at all!

Even Rachel suspected her identity.

"Miss Bai." Autumn frowned a little. She was unwilling to marry him, so when Rachel mentioned her marriage, she was full of grievances. "There are some girls who think differently from you. We don't wish to spend our lives with a playboy like Mr. Lu."

Her words expressed her feelings about the marriage and at the same time belittled Charles.

Rachel stared at her without battling an eyelid. She was trying to figure out if Autumn was lying to her, but she could only see honesty in her tone.

Rachel now believed that she had no interest in Charles.

"Do you... really not like him?"


After hea

ring her answer, Rachel began to dig her own shortcomings.

Indeed, she had been a little impatient ever since Charles got married. Maybe this was why, Charles chose to distance himself from her.

But when she recalled what happened in the office just now, she took back her good opinion of her. She sneered and said, "Well, you are quite aware of your identity. I'm clearly telling you, even if you fall in love with Charles, he will definitely have no interest in you."

Rachel looked at her from top to bottom. "I suggest you to stop playing dirty tricks. If I find out that you are trying to seduce him, you'll regret it."

"Miss Bai." Autumn interrupted her impatiently. "You've already wasted 5 minutes of my precious time to tell me to keep away from Charles. If that is your only subject, then I should tell you that I will keep it in mind. However, I would like to give you some advice too..."

Autumn had been one of her fans before she met her in person.

She was beautiful, professional, and most importantly, she wasn't like one of those stars who treated the media badly. She was always polite in front of the media.

But now she knew the real Rachel. She was only concealing her negative qualities and pretending to be mild and good in front of the media. The understanding of the real Rachel made her dislike her.

"You should rather focus on how to win his heart back instead of lecturing me." Autumn said sarcastically. "I'm leaving. I have something important to do now. You should deal with the things between you and Charles by yourselves. Don't bother me again."

"You..." Rachel's face turned purple with rage. She had just found out the reason why her relationship with Charles got weak. It was all her fault.

But when Autumn mercilessly pointed it out, she felt embarrassed.

"Miss Bai, shall we take her back?" The two men in black also heard what Autumn said. They couldn't agree more.

"No need!" Rachel shouted furiously. She was a superstar! How dare this ordinary girl lecture her like this? How could she play around in the entertainment industry in the future?

She was determined to teach her a lesson.

Autumn didn't care about what Rachel thought. She just couldn't wait to tell Ryan about the good news that her plan was finally accepted by Charles. So she called him while she was still on the subway. Strangely, Paula answered the call.

"Why did you answer the phone?" Autumn frowned when she heard Paula's voice.

"Ryan is busy right now. What do you want to say? I'll leave him a message." Paula said with arrogance in her tone. Ryan stepped into the office the moment she finished her words. "What are you doing? Who allowed you to answer my phone?"

Ryan then picked up the phone. He was happy to hear that the plan was accepted. But when he thought about the amount of money he could have earned from his previous plan, he got upset. He then coldly replied back to her, "Well, I see. We'll talk about it later when you come back."

After he hung up the phone, Paula was still standing there. "Do you have something to say, Paula?"

"Yes, Ryan." The office was quiet enough for her to overhear what Autumn said on the phone. And she clearly noticed the change in Ryan's facial expressions.

She knew that Ryan was unhappy with Autumn.
