Her plan had almost succeeded. Now suddenly Chris was in her way. What was worse, she was Edward's daughter. Rachel was afraid that all her efforts would now go down a drain in one swift spiraling movement.

"Is Chris really your daughter?" Rachel asked Edward to confirm her fears.

"Chris bears great resemblance to Maggie. Besides, she is turning 22 years old this year. I am sure that I am her father."

"Rachel, I owe Chris and her mother a lot as I have been absent from their lives. Now Maggie have passed away, so I have to compensate Chris as she have lived a life without her parents till now and I am to blame for that. I know it's a huge demand to ask you to be a stepmother. I have thought about this for a while. If you can't accept this and ask to break up with me, I will respect your decision. If this is the case, I will even give you a sum of money which will guarantee a good and respectable life in Y City. Moreover, please contact me any time if you need any help from me."

"What do you consider me?" Rachel asked Edward as she blazed with anger. "Edward, I chose to marry you simply because I love you. I don't care about your past, all of that happened before you even met me. I don't see how even Chris being your daughter can hinder our life together. Do you want to make amends? I can help you compensate and be a family together. Even though Chris dislikes me, I promise you that I will try my best to please her and befriend her. Once she accepts me, you won't be in a dilemma."

"Are you serious about this?" Edward looked at Rachel with delight as he held onto her hand. "Are you really willing to take care of Chris with me?"

"Of course I am, " Rachel answered in a serious yet optimistic tone. "Edward, although I don't have a child of my own, I swear that I will be a good stepmother and attend to Chris well, like she is my own daughter. In this way you can focus and devote yourself to your career."

"Rachel I can't tell you how happy and grateful I am to have you in my life!" In fact, Edward was full of fear. All of a sudden he had a daughter and she was a young woman. He had no idea how to tell Chris that he was her father, not to mention getting along with her. With Rachel's support, he became more confident.

"Autumn, you are finally here. We have been waiting for your arrival, " Abby greeted them first, followed by Cindy. "Pretty sister..." Cindy put her hands around Autumn's legs.

"Mrs. Zhao, what's going on..." Autumn asked in surprise, sweeping her gaze through the living room. The massive decoration outside the house featured the joyous atmosphere, so she had expected that many guests had been invited to this party. However, to her surprise, she and Charles were the only outsiders in their house excluding the servants.

"Autumn, come here. I'd like to introduce you to someone, " Abby took Autumn by her hand, and walked into the living room. "Dad, mom, Autumn is coming."

"Autumn, this is my father You must have met him." An old couple sat on the lounge. One of them was Arthur. Autumn greeted him with a smile. As for the other one...

"This is my mother...". Before Abby could finish her sentence, Amy dashed towards Autumn with eyes brimming with tears of joy. "Are you Autumn?" Amy asked Autumn with excitement and happiness while grabbing her hand.

"Yes..." Autumn was surprised by the overload of affection. She looked at Amy with confusion and then glanced at Abby. Apparently she was at a loss by Amy's excessive warmth.
