As soon as Charles had heard this from Autumn, he quickly realized that Wendy must have said something annoying to her. Charles gently patted Autumn's head and said with all smiles, "Oh, my silly girl. So what if you are not really related to your grandmother? She's been taking care of you ever since you were a child and you've lived with her for many years; that is more than enough. Don't pay attention to what anyone else says. The bond you share with your grandma is stronger than your bond with your biological mother. So remove all the negative thoughts from your mind and accept it, " said Charles.

"I knew it. I've always had a feeling, but I didn't dwell on it too much because I love my grandma a lot. I just didn't have the mental strength to accept the truth, " replied Autumn in a shaky voice.

"Don't let the thoughts bother you too much. Just remember that, no matter what happens, I will always be there for you, " Charles assured her with a smile. Autumn smiled faintly, said nothing more because she didn't want Charles to worry about her.

She buried her secret in the depths of her heart and decided not to share it with anyone else.

On the same day, Aron held a press conference, but Becky was not present. In order to save her face in public, Aron announced that it was Becky who took the initiative to cancel their wedding. As for the reporters who asked him tricky questions, Aron promptly avoided and evaded their inquiries.

After the press conference was over, Aron went to the hospital, as Joanna was supposed to be discharged from that day. However, as soon as they got back home, he found Mandy there, waiting for him. She approached Aron angrily, when she saw him.

Becky did not go home from the hospital, instead she went to a bar, to drown her sorrows in alcohol. Therefore, her mother, Mandy, had been worried sick about her and hadn't found out about the cancellation of her daughter's wedding until she saw the news.

"Aron! I need you to explain yourself to me, right now! I found out about the cancellation of your wedding over the news. Why are you doing this? What's wrong with Becky? Did she do anything wrong?" Aron held Joanna, gently sat her on the couch and was about to bring her a glass of water, when Mandy rushed into the house.

"I demand an explanation. Why did you arrange this press conference today? It is you who agreed to marry Becky in the first place; then why did you decide to call off the wedding? You've crossed the line this time, Aron! How

hought about letting the past go and getting rid of the troubles from her mind. However, when she heard that Becky hadn't gone home last night, she got worried about Becky's safety and urged Aron to help find Becky.

Despite that, even before Aron could say something, Mandy declined Joanna's suggestion. Instead, she sneered and said to them in a cold tone, "Don't think I will forgive you for what you have done to my daughter! None of you will be allowed to leave here until you tell me what you did to Becky."

Mandy then brazenly walked to the couch, and sat down with her hands crossed. "When we talked about the wedding before, you gave us your consent, but then you went back on your word even after the invitations had been sent out. You have to explain yourself to me, or I am not going to accept the cancellation of this wedding, " demanded Mandy.

"Mandy, my grandmother just got discharged from the hospital, and she needs to rest right now. If you insist on making trouble, I will be forced to take matters into my own hands, " threatened Aron. Aron had finally grown tired of Mandy's relentless arrogance.

"So what?" Mandy smiled bitterly since she had hoped for Joanna to die in the hospital. If Joanna did not wake up, no one would know what Becky had done to her. "Isn't she fine now? Don't you feel guilty for what you did to Becky? She always loved you, and even cared for your grandparents. Despite the countless sacrifices she made for you, you decided to abandon her. I will exact retribution for my daughter today. I will certainly not accept the cancelation of the wedding without any explanation, " Mandy challenged, her heart filled with rage.
