"Don't worry. I'm confident about myself. If she chooses Sam over me, it means he is superior to me." Charles said humbly, as if to suggest that if Autumn chose him over Sam, it would be a great honor for him. This got Yvonne more angry and jealous.

"You don't have to belittle yourself, Charles. I think you're much better than Sam. I..." Yvonne got so excited that she held Charles's hand but Charles frowned a little.

"What are you doing?" Charles withdrew his hand from her and demanded, "Don't you dare forget who you are. I came here to see you only for your sister's sake. If you do anything that is out of line again, you cannot blame me for being rude!"

"I am serious, Charles. I really..." Yvonne didn't think Charles could be so cruel to her, so she went ahead and continued trying to sway his mind.

After all, nobody ever rejected her.

"Enough!" Charles interrupted and shouted at her. "I'm only going to say this one more time. I know what you're thinking, but I'm telling you loud and clear that even if I happen to break up with your sister, God forbid for any reason, I won't ever date you. You're just not my type. Am I clear?"

With a sneer, he added, "As you are Yvonne's sister, our paths will cross again. But remember, for me, you are only her sister. If you say those ridiculous words again, I promise I won't go easy on you anymore."

"..." It didn't occur to Yvonne that Charles would say such unkind words to her. She was terrified.

While the mood was a little awkward, the waiter came to serve. Yvonne bowed her head slightly and apologized, "Forgive me for being so abrupt, Charles. Let's hurry up and eat."

Charles maintained a straight face, and ignored her. He made his feelings clear to her and was also aware of her intentions now. After two bites of steak, he stood up and said, "I'm full. You take your time but I think I should leave."

"Charles!" Yvonne had just cut her

the first day at work, her eyes widened in surprise. "Why are you here, Ye?" she asked.

"You are here, Leila" Autumn gave her a faint smile, without showing any intimacy. "Learn from Linda. If there is anything that you don't understand, ask her."

"Okay, Sure." Leila nodded with a smile. She was clever and outgoing. Even Linda liked her very much, and patiently taught her everything. And they even gossiped from time to time.

Ignoring their conversation, Autumn focussed on her work. At noon Leila came up to Autumn and said, "Ye, I have an appointment with Linda for lunch. Will you come with us?"

"Sorry." Autumn shook her head and declined Leila's invitation. Linda who was standing not too far away from them, looked awkward. Autumn knew if she went for lunch with them, Linda would probably stay mum throughout the meal. She flatly replied, "Enjoy your lunch."

"But..." Leila hesitated and tried to persuade her but Autumn pushed her out of the Secretary Department and said, "Hurry up. Linda is familiar with this area. Ask her to take you to eat something delicious."

She breathed a sigh of relief as they left.

Then she went and knocked on Charles's office door and asked, "Would you like to have lunch with me?"

"Okay." Charles answered with a smile.
