On their way back home, Rachel tried to get something out from Edward, "You seem to be very agitated after talking to Charles. I suppose he doubted your claim and intention behind slandering his wife, right?"

"Doubtful? Ah what can I say...." Edward laughed sarcastically as he added, "Apart from doubting me, Charles rejected my advice. I should have just kept it a secret rather than warn him about Autumn's betrayal."

Edward expressed his disdain, "I would have let Charles be a fool, it feels like he deserves to be cheated on."

"Charles is actually a victim and he will remain one as long as he chooses ignorance." Rachel sighed and explained to Edward, "Autumn remained unperturbed when being spotted by us in the western restaurant and invited us to join them for dinner. I suppose.. she informed Charles of her real plans. As a result, Charles blamed you for unnecessarily bringing this up."

"Anyway, I would have liked to know this in advance so as not to have let my kind attempt to save a marriage get wasted and insulted in such a manner, " Edward expressed his disappointment.

Rachel was too realized that it was her mistake that led to Edward's vulnerability before Charles.

In a bid to change the topic, Rachel decided to touch the subject of starting a family with Edward again, as when it came to the reference in Lu family, Edward felt quite uneasy. Now the atmosphere in the car was suitable for that subject especially in the absence of Chris.

"Edward, don't you.. like children?" Rachel put forth her question artfully and carefully fearing Edward's temper.

Edward frowned upon hearing what she said. "It is amazing for me to be questioned like this over and over again..."

"So what? Are you trying to say I am not welcome here?" Rachel pushed the door open and rushed in. She then searched around to check if there was any other woman. "Are you afraid of getting caught sleeping around with another woman?"

"What a nonsense are you uttering." Roger sensed Rachel's absurd and paranoid mindset as he sat beside her. "You are always on my mind, and I won't risk what I have to sleep around with another woman."

"You are such a smooth talker that it is easy to fall for your honey dripping words." Rachel replied with a cold smile, "I found you dining and laughing with Autumn and it looked like you were falling in love with her."

"No more of this nonsense talk!" Roger pretended to be angry and expressed his displeasure, "What ever I was doing with Autumn, was a part of our plot. But I am glad you stormed in here like this because now I know how much you distrust me...Since it is so, I will give up our plan."

"Do not take my jokes so seriously." Rachel tried to appease Roger, who was of use to her not anymore at least, "I am not in a good mood today so as to indulge in any more of this drama. Please do not take my careless words to heart. I did not mean it."

Roger could sense the melancholy on Rachel's face and wondered, 'Did something unpleasant happen to her?'
