Before Wendy could say anything, Autumn and Charles walked out of the washroom together. "Dad, Mom, we are going home now. We won't be eating here. Take your time with the food."

Autumn said in a cold voice. Yvonne immediately objected, "No! We rarely have the opportunity to have dinner together. How can you leave now?"

"Why not?" Autumn said bluntly, "And wait for you to pour hot soup on him?"

Charles knew Autumn was angry and didn't want to make it difficult for her. So he pulled her away and spoke to Simon and Wendy, "Dad, Mom, we are going home now. We will visit again in a couple of days. If you'll excuse us, we shall leave now."

"Charles..." Simon stood up, trying to make them stay but Wendy stopped him and said, "If you want to go home now, I won't stand in your way. My apologies.

Let me prepare a nice meal for you next time." Wendy's smile was sincere this time.

Simon and Yvonne did not say anything. Seeing Autumn and Charles leaving, Sam also stood up and said, "I am leaving as well."

"Sam, wait." Wendy stopped Sam, "You are already here. Please have dinner with us. I have something to tell you."

Autumn's face soured at what she heard.

Wendy saw Autumn and Charles to the door. Pleasant smiles were exchanged. Others looking might believe that Wendy was actually a devoted mother.

But the truth was...

After Autumn and Charles left, Wendy went back to the living room to get back to her plan. Simon refused to get involved, so he made an excuse and left the room. The servants were dismissed, leaving only Wendy, Yvonne and Sam.

Sam had remained silent all this time. Then he asked, "Why did you ask me to stay? I don't believe that it's because you want to have dinner with me."

"You are a clever man!" Wendy sneered, "Sam, there are only t

ing away from reality doesn't help solve any problem.

Back in their home, Gary and Chris were very worried about Charles and Autumn. They talked to Autumn and Charles separately, trying to figure out what was wrong.

"What is wrong between you and my brother? You don't talk to each other. The atmosphere here is quite intense and Grandpa and I dare not speak in a loud voice." Chris wanted to know what had happened between Autumn and Charles. Autumn smiled and answered, "It's nothing. Just a small couple fight."

"It has been two days, but you haven't talked with each other." Chris furrowed her brow. Since Autumn got married to Charles, they had gotten on very well and never argued with each other. But this time, Chris felt something was wrong.

Obviously, Charles was mad at Autumn. But Autumn didn't say anything as if she was deliberately staying away from Charles.

"I don't know what has happened between you and Charles. But I know that Charles loves you very much. Whatever happened, Charles will understand if you explain to him." Strict as Charles looks, he has a tender heart. No matter what troubles Chris had made when she was a kid, Charles would always come to her rescue.
