Charles decided to negotiate despite having various ways to stop Wendy from making trouble. If it weren't for the fact that she's Autumn's mother, he wouldn't have even bothered.

Charles wanted to avoid further disagreement. But it didn't mean that he would just agree to everything that she said. He knew that willingly granting Wendy's request would only end into more trouble.

"Don't be too greedy?" Wendy said, shaking her head with a scoff. "I'm the one who gave birth to Autumn. I'm the one who raised her! I'm only asking for 50 million. A very small amount in exchange for everything I did. Don't you think that's only fair?" she exclaimed.

Charles stared at her with indifference. After a few moments, he finally said. "I can only give you thirty-five million. Take it or leave it."

Charles felt sympathetic at the thought of Yvonne's miscarriage that he decided to add another five million. Wendy knew she had no other choice but to agree, knowing full well that Charles would withdraw his offer if she dared to ask for more.

Besides, she had no intention to destroy her relationship with Autumn.

Despite already taking a large sum of money, she knew that remaining in good terms would prove to be beneficial. Knowing Autumn, she didn't think she had it in her to turn a blind eye the moment she asked for financial help in the future.

"Alright. I'm accepting your offer, "

Wendy said, nodding her agreement to Charles.

"I will ask my assistant to remit the money to your bank account later. But let me be clear. If you ever dare to bother Autumn again, I will definitely make you regret it. You better keep that in mind."

Wendy was so pleased to receive such a large amount of money that she wasn't able to pay attention to what Charles was saying.

She didn't have any doubts when it came to Charles' character. As long as Charles promised to remit the money, Wendy knew that he would keep his word. But somehow, she can't help but feel uncomfortable at the thought of Autumn living such a privileged married life.

"Charles, why do you love Autumn so much? What do you see in her?

Have you forgotten that she had a relationship with Sam? That's something that she can't deny, "

Wendy said, trying to dishonor Autumn before leaving. Gary got enraged upon hearing this.

He couldn't bear the fact that Autumn's biological mother treated her in such a cruel way.

He di


"Autumn, you're back!" Gary stood up, smiling as he walked towards them.

He was also surprised to see Arthur drop by after dinner. Through their conversation, he found out that they were very compatible. Gary even discovered that he had already made contact with the Zhao family before.

"Dr. Zhao has been here for some time. He came here so he could have a look at your grandma because he's worried about her, "

Gary said as he asked Nancy to serve them some fruits. "I'll go ahead so you and Dr. Zhao will have a chance to talk."

"Thank you, Grandpa. Have a good night, " Autumn said, nodding slightly and then she turned to Arthur.

"Dr. Zhao, I didn't expect that you'll come here to see my grandma in person. Thank you for being so considerate."

"No worries. Emily is my friend and I am also concerned about her health condition, " Arthur said as he walked towards Emily to give her a medical check-up.

A few moments later, Autumn stepped into the room to ask about the result of the examination. "Dr. Zhao, how's my grandmother doing? Is she getting better?"

"She's fine. She even looks pretty good. Perhaps it's because of her good mood after being discharged from the hospital, " Arthur replied.

"But you have to make sure that she's well taken care of. Recovery time may speed up if she keeps having such a good mood. You have to trust and believe that miracle is possible, " he continued, smiling.

"Don't worry, Dr. Zhao. I'll make sure to take good care of my grandma. I really hope she'll get better soon, "

Autumn said, relieved by hearing Arthur's words.
