Wendy opened the door with sleepy eyes. Though Charles and Autumn would come home for lunch, she didn't have to do preparation for anything actually. The servants had gotten up early to handle it all. All she needed to do was to pretend that she had done all that.

She yawned and said, "Why do you come back so early?"

"I want to take my money and leave quickly. Joe and I are going on a date." Yvonne urged her mother to give her the money.

Wendy took out a bank card from her purse and handed it to her. "It's half a million in here. Enough for you to live a good life for a while. But... I will tell the code only if you stay for lunch."

"Mother..." Yvonne got angry. "You agreed for me to leave! You asked Autumn to marry him for me. When I was downstairs just now, I heard from the servants that they are coming here for lunch. How can I stay here! What if he finds out?"

"Don't worry. He won't." Wendy comforted her. She wanted her daughter to see how gentle Charles was. She wanted her to regret missing out on such a nice husband.

"I agreed for you to leave because I perceived him to be a playful bastard. I don't want you to suffer. So I agreed Joe to take you away. But now I think I made a mistake. So I must correct it."

"Just a lunch? Don't you have other prerequisites?" Yvonne said with a doubt.

"Of course not." Wendy knew she was going to persuade her. She continued. "I know you don't like Autumn since you were a little girl. Don't you want to see her life now?"

Yvonne remained silent for a while. Then she nodded and agreed to stay.

Charles and Autumn arrived early. They carried with them the health and anti-aging products that Gary had brought back from America. Yvonne, standing at the door, watched them get off the limo. She also saw Charles take over Autumn's stuff and hold her hand. Then they walked towards the door.

Autumn accidentally sprained her ankle. Charles worriedly asked her if she was okay. She shook her head with a smile.

Her smile made Yvonne jealous.

When they approached the door, Autumn saw Yv

her to the kitchen. She cast a glance at Yvonne to give her a hint before going inside the kitchen.

Yvonne read her mind. She stood at the entrance for a while before she brought a cup of tea for Charles. "Charles, here's the tea."

She stood next to Charles on purpose and then she ran her fingers through her hair and smoothed it. She pretended to fall while handing him the cup of tea, and tried to hurl her body straight into his arms.

She let out a scream. She thought herself attractive enough. And she was confident to successfully seduce him.

Unexpectedly, Charles refused to catch her and she fell on the sofa. The tea all poured down upon on her face. She looked funny with all the tobacco in her hair.

"Charles..." She gazed at him with sheer grief. Inside, her hatred towards Autumn deepened.

If they hadn't had this bitch between them, Charles would have given her a hand now without hesitation.

She didn't realize that for Charles, she was just a stranger and today was the first time they had met.

Charles looked at her with a cold stare. He had been on-guard against her from the very beginning. For one, he noticed that Autumn felt disgusted when she saw this so-called "cousin." And two, she did not act like a visitor here. She seemed to be quite familiar with this house. So when she handed him the tea, he was very vigilant about her move.
