After she sent Charles out of the house and was entering her bedroom, she took her bag out while preparing to go out, she received a strange overseas call. Autumn hesitated for a few seconds before ultimately receiving the call. "Hello?"

"Hello! Long time no see!" Autumn couldn't help trembling as she recognized the voice coming from the other side of the phone. This person had once treated her as her own daughter, but when she heard the news that Autumn had fallen in love with Sam, she kicked her away and moved abroad to live with her son.

This part of Autumn's life was the worst and it was also the days that she never wanted to recall and relive ever again.

Autumn clenched the phone in her hands while her breath turned heavy with fear. A sneer came across on the phone. "What's wrong? You dare not to talk to me?"

Jane also received an overseas call several days back, knowing that her son went back to find Autumn which enraged her further more. 'What a bitch!' Jane cursed to herself.

Jane could not even imagine let alone accept that Sam still couldn't forget Autumn after being away from her for so many years.

"Why didn't you say hello and greet me respectfully after all I am older than you?" Jane went on speaking as her voice sounded cold yet angry on the phone.

Autumn forced herself to calm down in that moment and greeted her politely, "Hello, Aunt Jane."

She used to call her Aunt Jane.

But it seemed that Jane did not appreciate and seek her kindness at all. Instead, Jane laughed grimly and said to Autumn, "I dare not to be your aunt. You better call me Mrs. Lin."

"Well, Mrs. Lin." Autumn called her obliging to her wish. It had been many years since the heart-rending incident, but Jane still bore grudge and hatred towards Autumn. Yet Autumn could not figure out the reason why Jane despised her so much. Was it just because she had fallen in love with Sam earlier?

"Mrs. Lin, time is precious. So please be brief if you want to have a conversation right now. I still have my work to catch up on." She was not the submissive girl anymore who would bear Jane's inexplicable scolding for no rhym

l the way.

Autumn parked the car and followed her in. She saw Sam holding Chris who was now bathed in tears. Autumn just went and silently stood beside her.

It took Sam a long time to comfort and console Chris. He said something to her, then Chris glanced at Autumn and walked aside, wiping her tears silently.

Sam walked to Autumn, but there was no uneasiness and hesitance in his face. Instead he looked composed. Sam reached out his arms to Autumn and said, "I am going to leave now. Let's hug and say our goodbye one last time."

It was meant as just a joke, but Autumn really hugged him the very next second.

Even though they could not be lovers in this lifetime, they sure could still be friends.

While Autumn held Sam tightly, she realized that she had already let go of everything and was totally over him.

"Thanks for coming to see me off today." Sam loosened his arms and added, "Autumn, you are right. I am a coward. I abandoned you irresponsibly and now..."

Autumn gestured with her hands and responded, "Let it go. I am fine, but..."

Saying this, Autumn took a glance at Chris, trying to indicate what she meant, and went on, "Well, nothing. Just forget it."

"I know what you were going to say." Sam smiled faintly. Even though the call last night from Autumn did not go the way both of them had anticipated, he was enlightened by the call. She was right. He has been a hundred-percent coward.
