Leila received an invitation to Chris's birthday party. It couldn't have been Charles who sent her the invitation because she was no more than a secretary to him. Thus, Leila assumed that it might have been Autumn who had sent her the invitation.

The moment Leila got the invitation, she was so thrilled that she hurried to buy an expensive present. On Chris's birthday, she had hoped to flatter Chris with an expensive gift and extravagant compliments. Besides, this was a good chance to get to know what kind of person Mrs. Lu was. When she entered the main room, Charles was just speaking about Autumn. She had presumed that Charles was having an affair with Autumn, but never in a million years did she expect that Autumn was actually Mrs. Lu. It was remarkably unbelievable. Leila's jaw dropped on the floor, as she stood there, totally stupefied. It seemed as if she had been struck by lightning, her face becoming stale and mirthless. Isla accidentally bumped into her in a hurry, but Leila stood there paralyzed still, not having recovered from the shock she had just received.

When Leila finally returned to reality, she stared at Autumn with fierce intensity. In her eyes, Autumn was a manipulative, vicious witch. 'She set a trap for me. She knew I had feelings for Charles, so she invited me here on purpose, hoping that I will dismiss the idea of seducing him once I hear what Charles has to say about her, ' she thought.

When she locked eyes with Autumn, she sneered, "Autumn, I guess, you are proud now, aren't you? Becoming Charles's wife and winning his unconditional love were the crowning glories of your life. You sent me the invitation to witness my humiliation firsthand, didn't you? Now that you've achieved your goals, are you satisfied?"

"You're not making any sense. When did I invite you to come here?" Autumn was confused about what Leila had said. She had never sent an invitation to Leila.

"Stop pretending!" Leila was too outraged to feign friendship. She raised her voice, and asked, "If not you, then who sent me the invitation? It couldn't have been Mr. Lu, right?"

Leila fell madly in love with Charles, when she was first hired as his secretary at the Shining Company not long ago. Since then she let her imaginations run wild, as she imagined being with Charles as his lover. She insisted that Charles had only

spect. I worshipped him. I know that you are doing well now and I am willing to let go of the past."

After calming down, Leila said plainly to Autumn, "I was not in good mood just now, so I lashed out on you. I hope you can forgive me. I… I'm sorry."

"Forget about it. It's not a big deal." Autumn didn't argue with Leila once she apologized sincerely. However, she knew that Leila was just pretending to be friendly. It was obvious that Leila didn't give up on Charles. Autumn wouldn't be foolish enough to take Leila's words genuinely.

"Autumn, I …" Leila understood that her attitude switched too quickly and there was a chance that Autumn wasn't convinced. She hesitated for a while and added awkwardly, "I am so sorry. I don't know why I behaved like an idiot just now. Please forgive me…"

"Enough! Since you have apologized already, you can leave now. We have other matters to attend to, " Chris said impatiently and took Autumn away. She didn't care enough to see Leila's reaction.

"Chris, aren't you being…" Autumn hesitated to ask her. After all, Autumn didn't want to hurt her feelings after what Chris had done for her.

"You mean I am way out of line?" Chris said unhappily, "Autumn, you are too kind. If you don't warn a seductive woman like Leila, she will harbor unrealistic ideas. She may even become a second Yvonne or Rachel. It'll be too late to cry about it then."

'If you show mercy to your enemies, they may seek to get revenge on you.

Since Autumn doesn't like getting her hands dirty, I will do them for her, ' thought Chris.
