"You should order, " Autumn said in an uninteresting manner.

She then looked back to see if Rachel was there. Unable to find her, she looked at Roger and asked him quietly, "Where is Rachel?"

"She said she would come to have dinner with Edward.

Maybe she's just late." Roger shrugged. "She'll be here soon."

As soon as he finished talking, Rachel came in with Edward in tow, with their hands tightly intertwined.

Rachel felt particularly special as she walked in, more so when she spotted Autumn and Roger. With a sly smile, she patted Edward's hand, feigned surprise and said, "Look! Charles' wife is over there!"

Upon hearing this, Edward turned to the direction where Autumn was. He could not see Roger's face, who was sitting opposite to Autumn. Unsure whether the man with Autumn was Charles, he asked calmly, "Why is she here?"

"Maybe she's having dinner with Charles. Let's greet them."

Rachel said softly while holding Edward's arm.

"It's totally unnecessary, " Edward protested coldly, his eyebrows slightly furrowed.

Even though his spat with Chris had already been resolved, there was still tension between him and Charles. As such, he didn't think there was any reason to greet them, but Rachel still insisted.

"Edward, I know what you are thinking. Remember that Charles is Chris' brother. He has taken care of her for many years and we should be thankful to him for doing that. It will be awkward if they see us here without greeting them. Don't you think so?" she asked.

"Plus, we don't usually see him in Y City. Come on now, it won't take long. We'll leave right after greeting them, " Rachel ushered, persuading Edward further.

"Well... Alright. As you wish, " Edward replied.

He felt Rachel's argument was reasonable enough so he walked with her over to meet Autumn. However, upon reaching her, he realized that the man with her was not Charles.

"Miss Bai, what brings you here?"

Autumn asked Rachel, feigning surprise.

Autumn stood up and greeted her, "What a coincidence! Are you here for dinner?"

"Yes."

S

rd, however, felt unsure how to answer.

"They must be. Right?" Rachel calmly claimed.

"Edward, Charles is your nephew and the Lu family has a notable reputation. Do not let your family's name suffer a scandal, " she said.

"I think you'd better warn Charles or else this woman will bring shame to his entire family."

"I understand. I know what to do, " Edward said solemnly.

"Don't worry. I will definitely talk to him."

When Rachel and Edward left, Roger remained puzzled and surprised at the same time. "Mrs. Lu, I did not expect Rachel to be deceived by you since she herself is a cunning woman, " he told Autumn.

"You know that I have no choice, " Autumn said defensively.

"Well, we should leave now that we have completed this task, " she added.

"I am afraid not. There is still one more thing to do, " Roger said.

Looking annoyed, he told Autumn, "Rachel just sent me a message and asked me to send you back."

"That's ridiculous!"

Hearing this, Autumn frowned and asked, "Why would she do that? I drove here myself."

"I have no idea, "

Roger replied, embarrassed. "If she is asking me to do that, this must mean she is determined to falsely accuse you, so…" he surmised.

"Oh, I understand what she's trying to do. Well then, please send me back, " Autumn replied with a smirk.

She could not wait to find out what Rachel had planned.
