Autumn was happy to receive a call from Charles. However, soon after she heard what he had said, her face turned sour. She gripped the phone tight as she asked him with a trembling voice, "Why?"

Charles did not notice the change in Autumn's tone and continued, "There's an emergency that needs my immediate attention. I have to stay here to deal with it. But rest assured, Autumn. I will try to come back as soon as I can."

"I..." Autumn fought back the urge to call him back, for she knew that Charles wouldn't leave the work unfinished and come back for her at this point. Also, even if he did give up him work and come back on her calling, she was afraid he might resent her.

She just sat there perched on the corner of the bed all alone, in a room full of silence.

The dim yellow light seemed to spread across all corners of the room. There she was lonely and sad inside this big room.

"Autumn, is something wrong? You seem unhappy."

Charles finally realized that something was bothering Autumn, so he immediately asked her, "Are you upset because I can't come back soon?"

Sure. That must be it!

Even though Autumn was thinking about it, she didn't share her thoughts with him. Instead, she forced a smile and said, "No, I'm not upset. I attended Rachel's wedding with Chris today. It was rather odd."

"Why did you attend her wedding?" Charles waved his head unconsciously as his curiosity increased.

Autumn simply narrated the entire story of what had happened today and then she said, "Charles, Chris is Edward's daughter. Nothing can change this fact. I think this was her attempt to save Edward's fortune..."

"I understand." Charles took a moment before he responded, "But if the same thing happens again, Just be careful. Don't be impulsive, just be prepared. Rachel is not so easy to deal with."

"I know what you mean." Autumn nodded quietly as she introspected.

"Once I come back, I will take a break and take you out. What do you think of that?" Charles comforted Autumn softly. Autumn finally seemed happier with

hung up now. There is a meeting scheduled for right about now. I will call you later."

Charles then hung up the call almost instantly, without waiting for Autumn to say a word.

She forced herself not think about this. After waking up the next morning, she went to work and called Rachel.

"Miss Bai, will you please tell me if you have fit up the hotel? When can we come and measure the entire place?" Autumn asked in a rather indifferent tone.

Rachel sneered and impatiently replied, "I'm afraid we will need more time to finish it. Miss Ye, don't you think it's too unprofessional for you to push me in such a manner? I mean I just got married."

Rachel was still angry about what had happened yesterday. She believed it was Autumn who was to blame. That's why she was constantly tried to embarrass her.

"If you can accomplish it before your wedding, I will not interrupt you now." Autumn said that without any emotion. "I am asking you one last time, When will you complete it?"

"Wait for my notice." Rachel smugly said to her, then hung up the phone rather abruptly.

Rachel felt better seeing that Autumn was controlled by her.

As for Autumn, she definitely knew Rachel was making things difficult for her. She had another idea. She instantly called Andy, "I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I really cannot handle this. Could you please help me?"
