Autumn, still anxious about Charles's condition, asked the doctor when exactly he would fully recover. "Let's go. The doctor said I'll be fine, " Charles said, taking the prescription before going.

"But I'm still a little bit worried, "

She said with a frown on her face. It was his head tha got hurt! Better to be safe than sorry.

"I'm fine, " he said, trying to comfort her.

"We still have an appointment with grandpa for dinner.

We'd better hurry. We can't keep them waiting for us."

Those words alleviated Autumn's concerns as they headed to the restaurant. Upon arriving, they spotted Gary and Chris waiting for them in front of the restaurant. Autumn was surprised to see that Sam was also there.

"Come here both of you, " Chris said, gesturing towards them to sit beside her.

Though she hadn't fully recovered from the ankle sprain, she pulled a chair beside her for Autumn to sit on and gave her a meaningful wink.

Autumn found an excuse to go to the restroom. She also motioned for Chris to follow her out. Once they were out of the dining area, Autumn asked her, "What's going on?

Why is he also here with us?"

"Grandpa called him and extended an invitation. I didn't expect that he'd actually accept it and come over, " Chris replied, pleased to see him here. Autumn doubted her words, suspicious that Chris might have tried to convince grandpa to call Sam. "Yvonne, please help me. Now that you and my brother are happily together now, do you want to see me end up all alone? Besides, I won't stay home and be a bother to you if I have my own love life, " Chris said, holding Autumn's hand.

"Alright, I get what you're trying to say, "

Autumn could only agree helplessly.

She had already talked to Sam several times and found out that he did not appear to be interested in Chris at all. However, Chris liked him so much that she decided to lend a hand.

"Let's go back. They might be wondering where we are, " she said, pulling Chris's arm. As they walked back to the table, Autumn saw Sam filling a cup of alcohol for Charles. She immediately walked over to Charles and took his glass away. "Sam, Charles just had his stitches removed today. You can drink with him whenever you want but now, " she said, looking at Sam.

"I'll be fine, " Charles said, trying to take back his glass fr

better to get engaged as soon as possible."

Seeing that Sam has said nothing, Gary took it as a yes and even started planning their engagement right there and then. Feeling a bit of panic, Sam knew he couldn't keep being silent any longer. He gazed at Chris, with an apologetic look on his face.

Autumn sensed that Sam was about to voice out his objection. She immediately raised her glass to make a toast. She said to Gary, "Grandpa, what are you talking about now? Aren't we celebrating Charles's birthday? Come, let's drink. I propose a toast to the safety and well-being of our family." Her attempt to change the topic was to keep Sam from saying anything.

However, due to Sam's lingering hesitation to answer Gary's questions and his lack of any positive response, Chris could already tell that Sam hadn't changed his mind at all.

She assumed Sam had a change of heart and had started to like her. But now she realized she was wrong.

She raised her pale face and managed to force a smile. She said to Gary, "Grandpa, don't put Sam on the spot. We're just friends.

There's nothing between us..."

Chris felt her heart breaking as she spoke. However, she didn't show it and pretended to laugh it off. "I just talked to Yvonnes a few days ago and asked her to keep an eye out on any good man she finds around her. You don't need to worry about me. Am I right, Yvonne?"

Autumn paused for a bit when Chris mentioned her name. "Don't worry, Grandpa. Charles and I will help Chris find a good husband, " she said as she nodded her head.
