Autumn flushed immediately at what Charles had said. "I'm going to take a shower, "

She said with her cheeks blushing red, running away from Charles's embrace.

The elders always woke up early. When Autumn got up, Emily was already talking to Gary. She had told Gary many interesting stories from Autumn's childhood. Gary found them quite amusing.

"She is such a quiet girl now. I find it hard to believe that she was a troublemaker as a kid, " Gary said, laughing.

"Indeed. She is a quiet girl now. But she used to make a lot of trouble as a kid. Her father had punished her a lot back then, " Emily said, smiling. "But she has a kind heart. She has spent a huge amount of money and has even sold her house, to help pay for my treatment. I owe her a lot, " Emily continued, looking sad.

"I don't have much time left anyway. She shouldn't have wasted so much money on me, " she sighed. "I've brought her so much trouble."

"Grandma..." Autumn interrupted as she didn't want to hear Emily blame herself anymore. "I heard that you told Gary all about my embarrassing moments from childhood, " she changed the subject.

"You got me, " Emily admitted bluntly. 'Although Autumn always got into trouble as a kid, she was very carefree and cute. Unlike now, she always keeps her problems to herself and tries to handle everything on her own, ' Emily thought, feeling sorry for Autumn.

"Gary, don't believe her, " Autumn turned to Gary, after she gave an angry glance to Emily. "I used to be an obedient and polite girl."

"Yes, you were. Even though you almost burned down your teacher's office, " Emily said, with a serious look. "Except for that, you were always a good girl."

"Grandma!" Autumn said in a bit of anger, looking embarrassed.

Gary and Emily burst into laughter. Making fun of Autumn seemed to be their choice of entertainment. After having breakfast with Emi

hink that you did nothing wrong, don't you?" Charles asked angrily.

Autumn stuck out her tongue jestingly, which aptly answered his question. The truth was, she didn't think she had done anything wrong. She didn't tell Charles about this only because she didn't want him to spend more money for her.

When Charles looked at Autumn's expression, he knew that his assumption was right. He knew what Autumn was like, but he still couldn't help but get angry at her.

'Why won't she spend my money? Doesn't she think of me as her husband?' he wondered in anger.

"Come on! Stop being angry, " Autumn coaxed in a soft tone. "I bought the car because I don't want to give you any trouble. With this car, it will be more convenient for me to take grandma to the hospital whenever I need to, " Autumn explained in a low voice.

However, this infuriated Charles even more.

"Give me any trouble? Why do you always think like that?" Charles asked furiously. "Am I not your husband?"

"Of course you are, " Autumn replied resolutely. "I didn't tell you, because I regard you as my family. I'm trying to save your money. You just handed me a company to run by myself, but I still haven't landed any big contracts yet. I couldn't ask you to buy me a new car."
