"The bitch presumes to put everything over on others."

Yvonne was more delighted than others at how Charles had embarrassed Leila to her face. Chris grinned, "In line with the old saying, 'What is done by night, appears by day!' Miss Ye, by no means should you follow her footsteps."

What Chris had just said, completely confused Yvonne before she realized that it was actually a trap.

Autumn, back home, felt upset and apologetic, as she found her husband retired to his room.

"My love, why were you unwilling to come inside your own home?" Charles felt that he had to settle the matter with his wife, otherwise he would be spending a restless night.

"I was afraid..." Autumn replied shamefully, "All I wanted do was to try and keep my identity from her."

"Why?" Charles wondered, "Can you tell me why you are still so concerned about these matters?"

"I..." Autumn replied awkwardly, "Frankly speaking, both Leila and Yvonne have developed feelings for you. I even suspected Leila's motive of coming here was to find out who I am. I avoided seeing her because I wanted avoid giving her any chance of becoming a nuisance. I am not even sure what she would do if she discovered that I am Mrs. Lu. My step-sister alone is enough to annoy me, I'd rather have one less enemy."

"Is that all?" Charles felt a bit relieved, "Just say the word, and I will fire her immediately, so you don't have to worry about her at all."

"Off work?" Yvonne was stunned for a little while before she realized it was Charles's pretext. She felt agitated for not having a better idea except for pressing for an alternative, "What about the day after tomorrow? May I get a ride then?"

"Absolutely not!" Charles replied in an adamant manner, "We should go to work by ourselves everyday."

Chris found it very difficult to contain herself, knowing how her brother had paid little attention to her, let alone to Yvonne, who was making a fool of herself.

Yvonne's face turned pale with embarrassment.

She did not understand why Charles had resented her so much, considering the fact that she was just as goodlooking as Autumn. She was angered by Charles's behavior and almost blurted out the truth about her identity (the fact that Autumn is a substitute).

Yvonne contained her anger and retired to her room. She realized that her volatile temper would mess up the whole endeavor at that critical moment.

"Autumn, in the future I will be sure to make you suffer tenfold of what I have suffered here today." Yvonne said to herself with a grin.
