Linda took Autumn to a restaurant. She handed her the menu with a big smile and said, "This restaurant is well known for its delicious food. Have a look and you can order whatever you want. Please don't stand on ceremony."

However, Autumn only ordered two dishes. Linda furrowed her brows and turned to the waiter. She ordered some other dishes without taking a look at the menu. "Well, if it is not enough, I will order some more later."

"That's enough for the two of us. Maybe we wouldn't be able to finish even this." Autumn hastily told her.

Linda gave her a glass of lemonade and said, "It is your first day here, so there should be a reception in honor of you."

"Are you familiar with this place?" Autumn asked. Just as the old saying goes: people should take things as they come. Thinking of this, Autumn calmed down. She also wanted to figure out what Linda had got up in her sleeves.

"Yes. I used to eat here with Jenny." Linda pretended to mention Jenny unintentionally, and then she made a pretense of embarrassment. She clamped her hand over her mouth. Linda explained to Autumn, "I am sorry. I didn't mean to mention Jenny to you."

"It doesn't matter." Autumn smiled sardonically to herself, but she still acted as if nothing had happened. "I will never care about it." Autumn added.

Linda was insatiable since Autumn did answer back, so she started talking about things that always revolved around Jenny. "Autumn, In fact, I never expected that Jenny would detest you like that. Before you came here, Jenny had lost her heart to Mr. Lu. Perhaps she is just afraid that you will take her beloved, so she treated you like that."

"Really?" Autumn replied indifferently and continued, "But it is all over now. "

"I just feel pity for her." Obviously, Linda was not going to spare her so easily, so she went on. "Though Jenny is a disagreeable bad-tempered woman, she is competent. Mr. Lu always gives her important tasks. She would

e her a little upset.

Hearing that, Charles loosened his grip. "Where did you go? Do you know that I have been looking for you?"

It was her first day to work.. He was going to take her out for a feast, but he didn't expect that they would get angry with each other.

Autumn's face darkened with anger. She looked at him face to face. "Why are you looking for me? Why not go to dine with Yvonne?"

Charles was happy to hear this, because now he knew that she was jealous.

Getting close to her, he acted like a spoiled kid. "What's wrong? Are you jealous?"

"No. Of course I am not!" Obviously, Autumn was not going to admit that. "You are my superior while I am just your secretary. I dare not get angry with you."

"I am sure you are jealous." Charles said firmly. "Ye, I hope you have stopped me when I called her before. I know she is your sister, but now I am your husband. We are a family. I know you are furious, but I arranged a job for her. I don't hope that you will keep pushing me away further. Do you understand me?"

"That's not true." Autumn suddenly felt regretful knowing his true intention. She had been hesitant because of her identity, but Charles was completely frank with her now.

He told her that he loved her instead of Yvonne.

She became cheerful hearing this.
