Chris blushed. Sam was handsome and evidently came from a well reputed and rich family. Indeed, Gary also thought Sam was an excellent candidate for a grandson-in-law. Most importantly, he appreciated his patience. He never complained whenever Gary wanted to talk or play chess with him.

"Oh, I just recalled that Charles needs to get his sutures removed tomorrow. Grandpa, why don't we eat out, celebrate and make a day of it?" Autumn suggested.

"Great idea!" Chris chimed in gleefully.

While Autumn was chatting with Gary and Chris, Charles and Leila were in the middle of a business banquet to lower the price. The other company's boss was as cunning as a fox. The negotiation had stretched out over a long time, yet it was not going anywhere, so this time Charles had to take care of it himself.

Jed Fang, their business partner, kept urging and pushing Leila to drink more wine. Despite Charles' presence, he laid his hand on her leg and then casually tried to move his hands onto her thigh.

Leila looked at Charles with unpleasant looks. She was angry but she couldn't say anything. She was waiting for Charles to defend her honor.

She had drunk a lot. She used to entertain business partners of Cloud Advertising Company with Ryan. Although her face turned red with wine, she seldom got drunk.

But today... seemed different.

Whenever someone urged her to drink she chugged her glass of wine. She was drunk a few moments into the dinner and was sitting there, ruefully gazing at Charles.

"Miss Zhang, here, let's drink some more, " Mr. Fang said to Leila while casually wrapping his arms around her shoulder. All through this meal, he spent most of the time urging Leila to drink and barely mentioned anything about business. Charles was about to explode with all the pent-up anger.

"Mr. Fang, about the price-" Charles said, but Jed Fang interrupted him immediately and said, "Mr. Lu, we are all having a good time here tonight. Why do you have to be such a spoilsport? As long as you make me happy and satisfied during this meal, lowering the price will be assured. Come, drink with us. Cheers!"

Jed Fang was tipsy. He raised his

ed on his fancy suit. She finally saw Charles's worried face with knitted brows, only the concern was not for her.

"I'm so...so sorry, Mr. Lu. I didn't mean to puke on you." Looking at the large stains on his suit, Leila was on cloud nine. But she deceitfully hid her complacency behind a facade of sincere guilt. "Mr. Lu, I really didn't do it on purpose."

"Okay, just forget it. You can stop cleaning it now." Charles pushed her hand away. The stains just looked messier than before. "Go upstairs, safely. I'm heading home now."

Charles handed her the bottle of water. When he turned back, Leila stopped him immediately and said, "Mr. Lu, since you are already here, why not accompany me upstairs for a hot cup of tea? Besides, when Mrs. Lu sees you like this, she will be worried. You don't want that. Do you?"

Leila acted all concerned about him. "I have my father's clothes in my apartment. They are not expensive but they are clean. I'm sure that is better than wearing this right now.

Or you can clean off the stains upstairs. They look really disgusting." Charles thought Leila's words made sense. He hesitated and then nodded. "In this case, take the lead."

His suit smelt pungent. He was afraid he would throw up while driving with that lingering stench.

Leila was thrilled. She finally got her wish to lead Charles into her home. She had rented this small apartment near her workplace and kept it neat and cozy.
