Then they got into the car and headed back home. Gary and Chris sat in the back seats while Autumn sat in the passenger seat beside Charles. After they drove to the downtown, Autumn pointed at the next corner and said, "Charles, please stop at the next corner. I have to get down here. You can drive Gary and Chris home so that they can have some rest first."

"Where are you going? " Chris asked out of curiosity.

"She is going to make you dinner tonight to welcome you back. So she needs to go to the market to fetch some cooking materials, " Charles said with a smile on his face.

"Oh? You know how to cook?" Chris was surprised to know about that.

"Yes, she does. She is a great cook." said Charles.

"Don't believe his word. I only know how to cook some simple dishes. He is just flattering me, " Autumn said with a red face.

Autumn never had such a warm family. She felt overwhelmed. In no time, she felt as if she was part of this family.

"Grandpa, Let's go to the market with her, shall we?" Chris was thrilled. She thought that Charles was lucky to marry such a good woman.

"Okay, let's go, " Gary said with a big smile. Chris was so happy to have dinner at home that she kept telling Autumn what she wanted to eat, "Yvonne, I want to eat sweet-and-sour fish. Can you cook it for me?"

"Okay."

"Oh, I also want to try your stewed beef brisket with tomato."

"No problem."

"Oh oh, can you make it..."

"No, she can't!" Charles stared at Chris through the rearview mirror and continued, "She would be exhausted to make all these different kinds of dishes for you."

"But I've just asked for two dishes..." Autumn glanced at Charles. He said nothing more and kept his eyes on the road.

Chris glanced at Gary, who couldn't hide the smile on his face.

It seemed that Charles liked Autumn a lot. He never cared like this about any other women. Chris had a feeling that they would soon have a baby and she would become an aunt.

Since Gary and Chris wanted to come with Autumn to the market, she decided to go to the supermarket for shopping instead. Though the food in the supermarket was comparatively expensive, the environment was definitely better. They got all the ingredients for the dishes Chris wanted to eat. Then they walked around the supermarket for a while and went back home.

Gary was chatting with Charles in the study, while Autumn was preparing the dinner in the kitchen. Chris felt embarrassed sitting in the living room, so she went to help Autumn in the kitchen.

"Yvonne, when did you learn to cook?" Chris asked out of curiosity. Nowadays, there were very few women who knew how to cook. Autumn was an exception. The manner in which she handled the ingredients suggested that she learnt cooking when she was young. She was really good at it.

"I... Autumn stopped what she was doing for a second. She tried to come up with an appropriate answer. She remembered that Yvonne had been abroad for a while. "While I was abroad, I didn't like eating the foreign food everyday. So I had no choice but to learn cooking."

"How I envy you, " Chris curled his upper lip and

feel sick, you must tell me. Don't try to tough it out all by yourself."

"Okay, I will, " Autumn nodded her head and answered. After she placed all the dishes on the table, she sat next to Charles and ladled out a bowl of sparerib soup for Gary.

Wendy was watching Autumn with silent contempt.

Though Autumn was her daughter, she never showed any concern to her. She was not pleased with Autumn no matter what she did. If Yvonne hadn't run away from the wedding, Autumn would never have the chance to marry someone like Charles.

"Are you okay?" Charles turned his head to Autumn and asked, "If you are not feeling fine, you can go upstairs and get some rest first. It's okay. I'm here."

These simple words warmed Autumn's heart. She never felt the same concern from her family members.

She answered him with a smile to show him that she was okay.

Wendy's heart was filled with hatred when she saw that Charles treated Autumn really well.

Charles was nothing like the man she heard of from the public and the media. He was a true gentleman. Wendy felt uncomfortable knowing that Autumn was married to such a nice man. She wished to reveal Autumn's true identity to everyone right away, But she stopped when she thought of the crisis on Gu's Group.

"Mother, why don't you take something to eat?" Charles raised his head and looked right into Wendy's eyes. There was a look of resentment in her eyes. Charles narrowed his eyebrows a bit. Wendy stopped staring when she realised that Charles was looking at her. She smiled at him and said, "You should get yourself something to eat too." She acted like nothing had happened.

Charles was confused and glanced at Wendy again. 'Are they really mother and daughter? Why would Wendy look at her daughter so resentfully? It seemed as if she was looking at her enemy, ' wondered Charles.

Since Gary and Chris had been in America for a long time, they missed having a lavish home cooked meal. This was why they liked the dishes prepared by Autumn even more. They were focused on eating so failed to notice anything odd.
