"Enough! Let go of me, " Edward cried out, trying to wriggle out of Rachel's hold. After struggling for a moment, Edward threw off her hand in exasperation. "I know you are using this child to take advantage of me and get back at Charles. But let me tell you, there's no way I'm going to let you get away with it, " he said, words laden with threat.

"I don't want to know whose child you're carrying right now, neither do I care. Just sign the divorce papers while I'm still asking nicely. Do you understand?"

"Edward, don't forget you're kind of a big deal in Y City. We've just been married not so long ago. If we get divorced now, the news will surely get around. Aren't you afraid the effect it will have for you?" Rachel asked, trying to change his mind.

"Edward, please don't do this. I'll listen to you in the future no matter what happens. I'll abort this baby if that's what it takes. I'll do anything for you!" Rachel begged.

"Stop! I don't want to hear your excuses anymore!" Edward said, refusing her request.

"It's over between us. I might be a man who cares about dignity but I'd rather take the chance than living with a woman like you. And don't you forget, you're also a public figure. You're a celebrity for Christ's sake! If your affair comes to light, not only will you be disgraced, but your career will also be ruined, " he told her the stakes.

"So what are you waiting for?" he asked, raising his eyebrows.

"Sign the papers now!"

"Why are you doing this?! Are you really going to be so hard on me?"

Rachel yelled miserably.

She suddenly felt that the man in front of her was very strange. She realized he had definitely changed. He wasn't the same person who promised to take care and love her all his life. "Have you forgotten what you said at our wedding?! Have you forgotten your vows?!"

"How dare you mention that? Do you know how disgusted I am of what you've done?" Edward exclaimed, glaring at Rachel.

"I admit that I did love you very much, and I did promise to take care of you for the rest of our lives. B

ision crews, he gained more respect for Autumn.

As Autumn sat down, Roger spoke and went straight to the point, "Mrs. Lu, why did you ask to meet?"

"Have you heard about Rachel?"

Autumn asked in return.

"Well, she called this morning to tell me that Edward was infertile and he was forcing her to sign a divorce. She claimed that I was the father of her baby and therefore I should be responsible for the child. She yelled at me over the phone when I didn't answer, " Roger calmly answered as he poured Autumn a cup of tea. "It's fine though, it's not like I'm not used to it. And it's not my loss anyway."

Roger knew Rachel was no longer useful to him so it was fairly easy to stop caring about her as a person.

"Hey, I have a question, " Autumn said, nudging Roger.

"Have you ever wondered how it would affect you if Rachel kept the baby?" she asked out of curiosity.

"I... " Roger stammered, his face displaying a little frown. The thought of Rachel keeping the baby never crossed his mind. He always thought she was so selfish that she wouldn't do anything that wouldn't prove to be of benefit.

"What do you mean by that, Mrs. Lu?"

Roger asked, clearly taken aback by the question.

"I just wanted to warn you that Rachel might use this as a threat against you. If that happens, what are you going to do about it?"

Autumn inquired further.
