"Re... really?" Hearing Chris's words, Autumn immediately blushed with embarrassment. She couldn't help but cast a complaining glance at Charles who was standing right in front of her.

The way she reacted only gave herself away.

Seeing Autumn's reaction, Chris roared with laughter and said, "Yvonne, you are so adorable."

Autumn's cheeks turned pink. She made an excuse and left the room. After Autumn left, Chris became serious. She looked at Charles and said, "Brother, tell me the truth, are you in love with Yvonne?"

"That is none of your concern." Charles answered with a frown.

"I care about you." Chris said in a serious manner. After their parents died, Charles took over all responsibilities and became the head of the family. He even guided Chris in every step of her life.

Chris accepted every decision Charles made for her without any complaints. But now, she had to speak for Autumn. She knew Autumn was the best Charles could get.

"Brother, I know you weren't too happy to marry Yvonne. But now you are husband and wife. Grandpa also agrees with me on this. If you don't like Yvonne, you should put things straight and not to get in the way of her pursuit to happiness." Chris stated earnestly.

Charles looked at Chris with a blank face. He had affectionately brought up Chris under his wings. He had always considered her as his own child. But now, he suddenly realised she was all grown up. Her words made sense and she sounded all mature.

Charles frowned and asked, "Why do you say that?"

Charles didn't respond to Chris's question. Chris hated to poke her nose into other people's business. There must be some reason why she talked to him about this.

Chris sat down on the couch and angrily asked in reply, "Don't you know what you have done?"

"What happened?" Charles was confused.

"Rachel Bai called on our home phone today." Chris's eyes were fixated on Charles's face. She was trying to figure out things from his expressions. But

words and said, "Yvonne, I need a capable secretary and not some eye candy. I've only met her once, but... I don't think she is fit for the job."

"I know, but..." Autumn frowned. She finally gathered some courage to push Charles further as she was reluctant to give up easily, "I know I'm putting you in a fix, but my mother... my mother forced me to request you for the same. I have no choice."

Charles could see Autumn and Wendy were not at good terms from the beginning. When Charles realised his rejection might put Autumn in a difficult position, he began considering what Autumn said.

After a long pause, Charles finally spoke, "Well, you can ask her to come to give it a try tomorrow. But I can't promise to hire her."

Autumn sighed with relief and nodded, "Thank you."

"Don't thank me yet." Charles said flatly, "If she isn't good enough for the position, I will not hire her as my secretary just to please you. But I can assure you I will offer her a sinecure, so that your mother has no reason to blame you."

Autumn knew Charles did this because he understood her estranged relationship with Wendy.

Autumn was greatly touched by Charles's kindness.

She thanked Charles again with a blushing face. Charles held her and said, "No need for thanks. You are my wife. I can do anything for you."
