"Well, I think I should go with you. Let me accompany you." Autumn received a call from Charles as soon as she finished her words. Isla took a glance at Autumn and then said, "Thanks. But there is no need to accompany me. I'll be just fine on my own. Your phone is ringing. Answer your phone."

As soon as she picked up the phone, Charles' voice was heard from the other end of the phone, but he sounded a bit serious. He just told her that he was waiting for her downstairs and then hung up the phone. When she turned around to explain it to Isla, she found that Isla had already left.

"Where did you go last night? I called you many times but you did not answer my calls." Autumn pretended to make a fuss when she got into the car. Usually Charles would explain to her patiently. However, this time he just took out a cigarette and ignited it.

"What's wrong with you? What happened?" Immediately Autumn perceived, something was wrong. "Can you tell me what happened, Charles?"

"Autumn, I have found your grandma, " replied Charles. He extinguished the cigarette in his hand and looked at Autumn's eyes.

"What? Are you serious?" Autumn's eyes lit up upon hearing the news from him. "Where is she? Take me to her. Hurry up. I want to meet her right away."

"Don't be so anxious." Charles received the call from his private detective last night, so he went to see him immediately. In order to prevent Charles from finding Autumn's grandma, Wendy took her grandma out of the hospital and left her in the care of a distant relative in a remote countryside. Charles picked up her old grandmother there and brought her to the hospital. But she was seriously ill, and she was in critical condition. Her grandma was admitted to the operating room last night where Charles spent the whole night waiting just outside the operating room.

He did not deliberately refuse to answer her phone. He just did not want to tell Autumn about the real condition of her grandma, because he was afraid that it would drive her insane.

The doctor just told Charles that she had missed the optimal opportunity for treatment and that she only had a few days left to live. Autumn would lose her grandma soon.

"Is she fine? D

n't cry, Autumn." Her rough hands fondled Autumn's cheeks as she tried to wipe off the tears from her face. It took a long while for Autumn to finally calm down. "Sweetie, I am so glad that I could meet you before dying. Don't cry and don't be upset. You are a good girl."

"Grandma, please don't say that." Even though Autumn knew that there was not much time left for her, Autumn still tried to comfort her, "Grandma, don't worry. I have money now and I will find the best doctors for you. You will get better soon. I won't let you leave me. We will live a better life."

"Sweetie, don't bother trying to do that." Her grandma sighed and then went on, "I am clear about my health condition. I know that I don't have much time left."

Autumn covered her mouth with her hands and forced herself not to cry. She felt such an immense pain when she heard this from her poor grandma.

When Autumn was a child, her father had passed away. And soon Wendy got married to Simon. Since then, Wendy had turned a blind eye to Autumn and stopped caring for her. It was her grandmother who had raised her. Her grandma finally collapsed under the heavy burden of taking care of her. Autumn knew that she owed her grandma her whole life. Her grandma had worked hard all her life, but she even didn't taste a single sweet day. And now she was dying, which made Autumn feel very guilty. This poor old lady gave her whole life to Autumn, but Autumn had no chance of repaying her anymore.
