Wendy Ye and Simon Gu didn't come here for the meal. They looked at each other before Wendy said, "Charles, you and Yvonne have been married for several days..."

"Mother!" Autumn immediately raised her head and interrupted Wendy, "Look I made your favorite sweet and sour fish. Please have a bite."

"I..." Wendy frowned. She was clearly upset about being interrupted by Autumn. But Autumn did not seem to care about that at all.

"Charles and I should have visited you and father today. But Charles's grandfather has just arrived home and he is very tired. It's all my fault. I should have told you earlier..." Autumn took the blame upon herself. She described Wendy and Simon's visit as them "missing their daughter".

It suddenly dawned on Gary. "Oh, excuse my poor memory. Charles and Yvonne should have visited you today, instead of you coming here. I'm the one to blame."

"Mr. Lu, I didn't mean it that way. We are here to..." After hearing Autumn's words, Wendy did not know how to express her intention. Simon frowned and was about to say something.

With the help of chopsticks, Autumn put a rib into Simon's bowl, "Father, you said you miss my cooking. Please have some more."

Autumn knew that she wouldn't be able to stop them from talking. But she tried her best to prevent them from speaking out their intention in front of Charles' grandfather.

Charles incisively concluded that Simon and Wendy were not here to "visit their daughter". He went on and said, "Father, mother, it is forgetful of me. How about this? Tomorrow, Yvonne and I will visit you. I want to have a chat with father about the company affairs."

"Great! That is it, then!" Wendy was all smiles. "You and Yvonne can come in the morning. I will prepare lunch for the two of you."

"Okay." Charles answered. Autumn tried very hard, but failed to stop them from talking. But Charles easily managed to keep thei

en feed. It's nothing compared to what I need." Yvonne mumbled unhappily, "I need a lot of money to live outside. Stop talking nonsense. Give me the money now."

"Wait..." Wendy suddenly had an idea. Since Charles was completely different from the one described by the media, the reason that Yvonne was not willing to marry him didn't exist anymore. Wendy couldn't bear watching Autumn Ye marrying such a good man. So she offered, "I can give you the money, as long as you come home to have lunch tomorrow."

"No, I'm not coming home." Yvonne was travelling with her boyfriend during those days. Although she was the one who paid the bills, she felt more free, than living at home. "Mom, just give me the money quickly."

"I said, as long as you are back, I'll give you the money. Otherwise, I won't give you a single penny." Saying that, Wendy hung up the phone. She believed Yvonne would come back tomorrow again, asking for money.

"What are you doing?" Simon frowned and said, "Charles is coming tomorrow. What if he finds out about Yvonne and Autumn's true identities?"

"Don't bother. I have an idea." Wendy gave him a mysterious, sly smile.

The next morning, Yvonne knocked at Wendy's bedroom door and said, "Mom, see I am back. Give me the money now."
