Roger shrugged his shoulders with resignation. "I don't know what good it will do her, " he said.

"She just told me what to do, but not once did she say why, " he told Autumn. "I'm thinking she really hates you, so you better watch your back."

"I know, " Autumn nodded in agreement. She stepped aside to make a phone call that would introduce Roger to TV production teams. Turning to Roger, she said, "Thank you for warning me about Rachel's ploy. To show my appreciation, I have hooked you up with two TV crews, for starters."

"Thank you very much, Miss Zhao!" Roger cried out in joy.

The directors of these two teams were quite well known. And Roger bagging a role in any of their productions might just be the breakthrough he needed to become famous. So he could not thank Autumn enough for the opportunity.

In a clipped tone, she said, "Call me Mrs. Lu."

Roger was slightly embarrassed about his behavior, seeing Autumn's serious demeanor.

But he quickly recovered, putting on a smile. "So Mrs. Lu, what do you want me to do next?" Roger knew he owed Autumn a big favor and was determined to pay her back.

He suggested, "Do you want me to break up with Rachel and show her how mean I can be?"

"No, don't do that, " she replied. "It's more important now to get along with Rachel. Say yes to whatever she asks of you. But remember, you must report all these to me. If you need my help, just let me know."

Then Autumn issued a warning. "You better not be playing games with me because I promise, you won't like the consequences."

Roger was quick to assure Autumn that he would stick to his part of the bargain.

"We both know that a man being used cannot be suspected, in the same way a suspected man cannot be used. Mrs. Lu, now that you have decided to cooperate with me, please believe I will not let you down. Besides, how can I forget what you did? You introduced me to excellent TV crews!"

Flashing a smile, Roger continued, "By the way, I'll probably need your help tonight with some acting."

Curious, Autumn arched her brow.

"And what do you need me to do?" she asked.

Roger laid out the scenario.

"I've made Rachel believe you're interested in me romantically. So, she demanded that I asked you out to dinner tonight, " he began.

"She's been pushing me to do it, and I think

their presence would distract him a bit from his loss."

Isla tried to muster a smile. "But I know he'll be back to normal sooner or later. So there's nothing to worry about."

Autumn kept quiet for a moment, thinking about what Isla said.

Then she switched the topic and asked, "Has there been a verdict in Wendy and Yvonne's case?"

Isla replied, "No, not yet.

You have got to stop thinking about them, Autumn. It would be better to just concentrate on doing your job well and building a new life. Think of it this way, from now on they will no longer bother you."

Autumn sighed. "Yes, you're right, Isla."

Ever since she fainted which landed her in the hospital, Autumn had been trying to ignore the case, which caused a big stir in Y City. She would block discussions about the case. And she kept reminding herself that it was Wendy who killed her father, so she had to stop caring about the situation she was in.

Still, Wendy was her mother and it was painful to witness the horrible things happening without being able to do anything. As a result, the ambivalent feelings were causing her nightmares.

Before leaving the office, Autumn called Charles to say she would not be having dinner at home. Then she drove to the restaurant where Roger made reservations. The place was nice, the surroundings pleasant, the decor very western. Roger had been waiting for a while when Autumn arrived. The moment he saw her, he stood up, gently pulled up a chair and sat her down. Handing her the menu, he said, "Order whatever you like."
