To Rachel's surprise, Charles smiled and said, "They say money can't always buy what you want. My wife has been here for several hours to check the collection, and is lucky enough to pick one dress that meets her expectations. As her husband, I should buy her the dress at all costs. Otherwise, I might as well be a good-for-nothing husband for her. So Miss Bai, could you please look for another one? And just so you know, whichever dress you pick today is on me. Feel free to take it as a birthday gift from us."

He didn't wait for Rachel's answer nor did he care about what she thought. He gently took Autumn's hand in his and walked her to the fitting room. "Go and change your clothes. I will be waiting for you, " he said with a warm smile.

Rachel was red with anger. However, she could do nothing but to watch them walk away. After coming to her senses she remembered what he said about the gift. So in an attempt to get back at him, she picked out a dozen of the most expensive dresses, thinking that she could always find occasions to wear them in the future.

But she wasn't expecting to see embarrassed look on Lily's face at the checkout counter. "Miss Bai..." Lily stuttered as she recalled the slap, "You still need to pay 1.87 million."

"Didn't you hear? Charles said that all of these dresses would be on him. Pack them up quickly. I've got a very busy schedule today and don't have anymore time to waste on you." Rachel said while casually fiddling with her freshly manicured nails. She was going to the spa with some friends later today. As tomorrow was her birthday, she had to ensure that she looked her best at the party.

"But…" Lily hesitated for a moment before gathering her courage and said, "Mr. Lu also said that he is married now. And since his wife will keep an eye on the household budgets, he has to cut down on unnecessary spending, so… please choose your favourite dress as he will not pay for the rest of them."

"What?" Rachel was furious. Charles had always been generous towards her and would spare no expense for things that she wanted. But everything seemed to have changed after he married Autumn. However, Charles' indifference had only increased her resentment against Autumn. She believed that he would have never treated her in this manner if not for that woman.

Finally, Rachel managed to hold back her anger and reluctantly picked out her favorite dress from the bunch she ambitiously selected. She still put it on Charles' bill. After all, her career was on a downward spiral at the time being and she

ctors. Becky had been staying in the ward to keep a close watch on Joanna. She was on alert once she saw a strange face. "Who is this?" she asked with a frown.

"This is our new chief, Dr. Zhao. Don't worry, he's just making the usual rounds."

"Alright." Becky said no more, but she still stared at Arthur with suspicion. She feared that he was some specialist sent by Aron. She knew that, if Joanna woke up and told the truth, she would be doomed.

"How is my grandmother, doctor?" Becky asked softly. After checking Joanna, Arthur understood her condition and realized what he had to deal with. But he said none of that to Becky, instead he said, "She's now in a relatively stable condition. But the time of her waking up remains unknown."

Becky breathed a sigh of relief upon hearing these words. Mike and her parents had agreed to come down to prepare for the wedding as soon as possible. They hoped that hearing about the good news, Joanna would come around. So she had to ensure everything was going according to plan.

No sooner had Arthur left the ward than Mike pushed the door open and entered. "Becky, you have been staying here to look after Joanna for days. Listen to me, go back and take some rest now."

"It's okay, grandpa. I'm totally fine." Becky smiled and said, "You need to take good care of yourself now, grandpa. Don't worry, I will stay here and keep grandma company. Just go back and get rest."

"My silly child, your wedding is soon approaching. There are more important matters that seek your immediate attention, you can't fall ill at this time." Mike then grinned with a gentle laugh, "Don't tell me that you want to show people your "panda" eyes at the wedding."
