"You..." Autumn was amazed and also happy somehow with his decision of firing Leila. There were many deals for him to manage, and Autumn thought he was a little too impulsive to make such an arbitrary decision.

"Don't you think you are being too impulsive to make such a decision?" Autumn frowned and balmed him instantly.

"Not at all. I am sure everything will be fine." Charles answered in a delicate tone. "Now our baby and you are the most important things for me and I'm willing to do everything required for your welfare and happiness."

"But..." Autumn was still worried.

"Don't think too much. It will all be okay." Charles stroked Autumn hands and said, "From now on, no matter what Leila says or does to you, please don't believe her. You can't be provoked to get angry or emotional for your and baby's health. Do you understand?"

Charles added, "I can't always ensure that Leila won't cause trouble for you any more but you can just remember that no matter what happens, you can control yourself and trust me. Okay?"

"Okay." Autumn nodded her head and said, "I will remember that."

After consuming her meal and having this warm chat, she was so tired and she fell asleep on the bed almost immediately. Nancy was sitting in the sofa staring blankly when Charles went downstairs. He wanted to ask Nancy whether she had something to do with Autumn's disease or not, but...

He decided to give her a chance to confess her guilty to him by herself.

"Is Autumn all right?" Chris asked him while she was also heading down.

"She just ate the meal and fell asleep. Where are you going?" Charles asked Chris out of curiosity.

"My dad just came back and I'm going to visit him. Charles, Autumn's condition is not so good, so please spend more time to give her company." Chris was concerned about Autumn so she gave Charles a suggestion.

"I know." Charles nodded his head slightly and said, "She almost lost control today and after that I am not going to take any more chances."

He said this on purpose so that Nancy could hear it. Then he saw Nancy suddenly

, " Nancy said painfully.

"So... do you still give him money every month?" Autumn asked her.

"Of course not!" Nancy said in a harsh tone, "The second year I came to Lu family I fell sick and didn't give him money on time and he came here and beat me up. Luckily, Gary helped me to divorce that man after he found out about how I suffered all through these years. Gary employed a lawyer for me to get my son back. It was really inconvenient for me to bring him up while working here, so I rejected his kind offer."

"Where is your son now? He is about thirty, right?" Autumn continued asking her, "Has he ever come to visit you?"

"Visit me?" Nancy sneered and answered, "His father has said many ill things about me which made him hate me with all his heart. He refused to see me every time I went back with gifts. So I can only see him secretly for so many years and I am content just to know that he is doing well."

Autumn felt sorry for Nancy as now she knew Nancy's story. She remembered that she heard Nancy mention her son when Nancy answered the mysterious call.

"Nancy..." Autumn frowned and said, "On the eve of the Spring Festival... I heard what you said on the phone."

Nancy was shocked and Autumn explained to her immediately, "Don't misunderstand what I said please. I didn't do that on purpose and I only heard that you needed money. So you needn't worry..."
