Hearing this, Eric was taken by great surprise. When he got over the shock, he asked, "Don't you know that you own that house now?"

"What... are you talking about?" Autumn asked, looking surprised. She had no idea.

"After you returned from Z City, Charles bought that house from me, with a bit of convincing and some pressure. It's your house now. You don't need to be sorry."

Autumn felt more embarrassed. 'This is a house, not a toy. How could I accept it?' she thought to herself.

"Who is this?" Eric asked, as he turned to Hoada Masahiro, evaluating him discreetly.

"Oh, I forgot to introduce him to you. This is my guest, Hoada Masahiro. Hoada Masahiro, this is my husband's friend, Eric." Autumn introduced the two.

When Eric heard that Hoada was Japanese, he showed no surprise. "Nice to meet you! What do you think of the food here? Do you like it?"

"I love the food here, " Hoada answered, looking embarrassed. "I just told Miss Ye that this is the most authentic Japanese restaurant I have been to in China."

Eric didn't look too pleased. "Then, sir. Enjoy your meal. It's my treat today, " Eric turned to him smiling.

He then told Autumn, "When it's your time to leave, please let me know and I will take you home. It's not good to bother others."

"Well, thank you!" Autumn nodded. She had been worrying about how she could get rid of Hoada after the meal. Now Eric had provided the perfect solution.

When Autumn saw Eric leave, she sat down again. "Mr. Hoada, I'm so sorry. I didn't expect to meet an acquaintance here..."

"It's okay, " Hoada Masahiro replied. "Miss Ye... when did you get married?" he inquired, confused.

"Well..." "It has been a while. I'm really sorry not to have invited you to my

n do what I like."

"In fact, Charles didn't want to get married as well. Although he liked Rachel very much, he had never considered marrying her. But now I find that he is happy. Just like he said, he had met the right one." Autumn's cheeks were flushed, filled with happiness.

"If you know any kind-hearted, single girls, don't forget to introduce one to me. I came to the Japanese restaurant, because Charles told me to. I left all my work at the hotel and waited till you were done so I could take you home. Don't forget my kindness, okay?" Eric said playfully.

Autumn suddenly understood why Charles had asked where she was going to dine with her guest.

'Thank God Eric showed up. Otherwise I wouldn't have known how to handle Hoada, ' Autumn mused.

When Autumn arrived at their home, the Dream Garden, she saw Charles standing at the gate. 'Eric must have called Charles before leaving the restaurant, ' Autumn thought. "Don't dine with some guy who has indecent intentions." Charles turned to Autumn after Eric drove off.

"Never again..." Autumn murmured. 'Hoada knows that I'm married. There is nothing to worry about, ' she told herself.
