Upon hearing Isla's words, Autumn shook her head with a smile. Her relationship with Charles was unbalanced from the beginning, but she hoped and tried to always be on equal terms with him.

"Are you done?" She asked softly and politely as Isla put down her chopsticks on the table.

"Yeah, I'm done. Let me drive you back, " Isla offered. As Autumn had no car, she either traveled by the subway or hailed a taxi every time. "You're Mrs. Lu now. You can't take the subway or a taxi every time you go out. You should at least have a car, which will give your husband more face, " Isla added her opinion.

Autumn said nothing but was pondering about what Isla said. She didn't mind taking these forms of transportation, but now she just had to consider whether it would cause Charles any undue trouble if people found out that Mrs. Lu often took the public transport.

Once they left the restaurant, Isla drove Autumn home. As the car came to a halt near the gate of Dream Garden, Autumn invited her in. "It is too late. I'll come to your house next time, " Isla promised while declining her polite offer with a smile on her face.

Autumn nodded slightly and prepared to get out of the car, but Isla stopped her, "Autumn..."

"Yes?" Autumn turned to her with an inquiring glance.

"If you do start a company, I can give you a hand, " Isla said, "Although I've spent a lot of money these years, I have some savings remaining. If you need it, I'll take it out especially for you."

"Thank you, Isla, this is very considerate of you. I'll call you when the need for it arises, " Autumn replied as she was touched and grateful for the offer.

Isla then drove away. And Autumn did not turn to enter her house until Isla's car was out of sight. Unexpectedly, she met Sam as soon as she reached the door. "Sam, what are you doing here at this time?" Autumn asked.

"I... I'm here to see Chris." Sam looked uncomfortable and almost unnatural. Chris didn't go to work all day today. He was afraid it was what he said yesterday that hurt her, and as he began overthinking it he became more and more worried and concerned. So the moment he got off work he bought some fruit and came to see Chris. Little did he know t

nd thought, she realized that Gary had stopped calling her Yvonne these days and called her Ye as Charles did. With that she concluded that he might have know about it.

Sure enough, Gary didn't show any surprise, but Chris did. "What? Yvonne, you just got your marriage license today?"

"Yes, " Autumn answered with a smile while adding, "You know why your brother and I were together to begin with. But to be honest, I wasn't expecting to get here. Anyway... we're a real family now."

Chris laughed heartily, "I've have always thought of you as a family member. So now you can pay some attention to my marriage."

"Sure, you don't even have to mention it. You asked me to introduce a man to you last night and I told your brother all about it. There are so many excellent young bachelors around him. I've asked him to introduce the best one to you!" Autumn teased her.

"Yvonne, you know I'm not talking about this, " Chris hastened to stop Autumn in her tracks.

"Then what exactly are you talking about?" Autumn pretended not to understand what she was implying.

Observing that Chris was too shy to speak out about her feelings, Gary openly said, "She means Sam. That young man looks good. Chris said he's your friend. I just talked to him and got a good impression of him. It would be perfect if he could be with Chris."

"Grandpa." Chris patted Gary on the arm while she was embarrassed. "I get it, grandpa." Autumn couldn't help laughing while speaking.
