"What's wrong?" Paula stood in front of Autumn with an ounce of care and asked her in a cold tone. Now that Paula had been transferred to the logistics department, she did her work in a perfunctory and detached manner. Paula would definitely not pin her hope and aspirations on her present job as she was merely a cleaner in the company now. Would she realize her value and potential through this job? Of course she would not.

She harbored ill thoughts and hatred not only for Autumn but also for Isla, because in her opinion, they both stood in the same position and were responsible for her current condition in the company.

"What are you going to do now? You asked me to come here but you have just been silent. What is your intention?" Paula furrowed her eye brows impatiently while shooting her questions. She was enraged by Autumn's bad attitude towards her.

"Paula, we have been colleagues for over three years, right? And I have known you for three years already. In all those years, I have never done anything wrong to you, This has just left me confused as to why you detest me so much?" Autumn was curious about what sparked the controversy in the first place. She really wanted to know why Paula always had a strong feeling of despise and hatred towards her.

However, upon hearing this, Paula laughed slyly and replied sarcastically, "I am afraid you have misunderstood me through those years. I never said that I hate you. Who told you this?" Obviously, Paula was not going to be honest with her. She would not tell Autumn that she disliked her simply because she was envious of her and the life she was leading.

Autumn gave an all-knowing smile and decided not to waste anymore of her time dwelling upon this matter. She asked Paula to come to her cabin because she wanted to figure out what happened in the office during her leave.

"Nothing special happened here. You were off for only a few days. What could possibly happen in such a short span of time?" In fact, what Autumn specifically wanted to know was what had happened to Isla. Autumn knew that Paula would pour out all details she knew without reservation as she despised Isla very much. "Paula I mean what happened to Isla?"

"Well, that is really a good question. But I am afraid that you have to ask your bestie for more details after all she is the person concerned." Paula burst into sneer as she still couldn't help telling Autumn the whole story. "You know what? They..."

Paula exaggerated what happened in the company that day and narrated the story down to every minor detail. After hearing it all, Autumn scowled and clenched her hand into a fist.

She knew for certain that Isla

istant brought.

"Mrs. Lu, the fitting room is behind. This way please." The shopping assistant was confident about this latest robe as it was designed by the famous and talented designer, Linda. It was said that she would only design two dresses annually and each dress could be auctioned off at an extremely high price.

Autumn entered the fitting room but she had a difficult time trying to tie the strap on her back, so she had to ask for help. "Can someone please help me tie the strap please?"

A moment later, the thick curtain of the fitting room was pulled apart while Autumn felt someone's cold hands touch her bare back. It took a quite long while for the person to tie the strap. This made Autumn anxious, so she turned sideways and asked, "Are you done yet?"

"Wait for just a few more seconds. I am almost done here." She recognized Charles' voice from behind her which shocked Autumn. She did not expect that he would come to tie the strap for her, so she asked bashfully, "Why are you here?"

"Okay. It is done!" As Charles was not experienced in tying the straps, it took him quite a long time. When he led Autumn out, he couldn't help letting out a sigh of admiration.

She looked very elegant and pretty in the sapphire robe. The long robe hem spread across the red carpet and was dazzling under the bright yellow light. The waistline was perfect with a silver-white pattern outlined on the belt and there was a charm of the medieval European court on it. As her back was slender and straight, it made her look like a delicate flower. The first thing that caught his eyes was her perfect figure in this body-hugging dress. The delicate laces lined her white legs which were slender and slim. This special dress also accentuated her amazing hourglass figure.
