It must be Ferry Fang, the mystery man who helped release Yvonne.

Casting a suspicious glance over Nancy, Charles was about to press the matter, when Nancy continued with her confession. "Charles, my crime of drugging Autumn is beyond forgiveness. I am unworthy of your family's respect and regards."

Nancy felt too ashamed to continue it.

Charles found it hard to forgive Nancy for her heinous crime, though he held Nancy in high regard befitting his senior family members.

"Did he give you the pack of powder you just dumped?" Charles questioned Nancy.

Nancy nodded beyond shame and continued, "I had to do whatever the mystery man asked me to do including giving him the due money and drugging Autumn if I wanted to save my wanton son who abandoned himself to gambling which led him to heavy debts and then being taken into custody by the mystery man. I was powerless to deal with that and followed his instructions instead."

Nancy pleaded piteously, remorse running over her, "Charles, if it weren't for my desire to save my unworthy son, I would not have drugged Autumn as the mystery man demanded. I have served Lu family most of my lifetime, but I have to save my son anyway."

"Charles..." Nancy's appeal stopped Charles from going upstairs. "My son...."

Charles guessed out what Nancy wanted to ask for his favor. "I will try my best to save you son."

Nancy was greatly relieved at Charles's reassurance. If Nancy had enlisted Charles's help for the matter, Autumn would not have been hurt miserably.

On the following morning, Nancy prepared a loving breakfast beneficial to a pregnant woman according to a cookbook. No sooner had Autumn partaken of the meal than Charles went downstairs and packed up his essentials and said to Autumn, "Now, I'm going to work." After the conversation, Charles's trust on Nancy rose again, as he did not prevent Autumn from eating everything Nancy prepared for her.

"Charles, you don't need to worry about me. Focus on your public duty." Autumn smiled at Charles. After biding farewell to Charles, Autumn, accompanied by Nancy, paid a visit to Cloud Advertising Company. She brought with her some afternoon refreshments from a dessert shop. Isla was stunned to see Autumn again.
