"So, you're Nancy's son," said Charles. He sat on the couch while studying Brent.

Brent nodded politely and replied," Yes, I am."

Charles began the interview. "How experienced are you at driving?" He wanted to make sure Brent would serve his wife well.

Brent stood up straighter to boost his confidence. "I would say I have enough experience as a driver," he told Charles. Even as he tried to sound confident, Brent felt intimidated by Charles.

"And how often do you drive?" Charles pursued the questioning with great composure.

Brent admitted," Not very often." He thought for a second before adding," I used to serve as a temporary driver for people in my village, especially when there were urgent circumstances."

Brent could not shake off the meekness that was gripping him in front of Charles.

But Charles still remained doubtful whether he was fit for the job or not, even as he noted that Brent was attempting to behave like a subordinate.

It was Nancy's appeal that he was really considering, so despite certain misgivings about Brent he would probably give him the job.

"Do you know what we need you for?" he asked Brent. Although Brent remained standing, Charles made sure to look him in the eye.

"Yes, I am aware," Brent replied. He looked at Nancy before adding," My mom told me that I could work as a driver for Mrs. Lu."

Since Charles made no attempt to hide his dislike for Nancy's son, Brent tried his best to defend himself. "If you give me the chance, I promise to change little by little. And I will serve Mrs. Lu well in return for accepting my services," he said quickly.

Nancy spoke up in behalf of her son. "Mr. Lu, please give him a chance. Brent will do his best driving for Mrs. Lu." She looked at Brent. "I know he's done many foolish things and may even be thought of as unworthy, but I know he will take to heart serving Mrs. Lu. Besides, I will keep him under close watch," she vowed.

Charles looked from Nancy to Brent and was now torn by indecision.

Suddenly, he heard Autumn's voice. "Charles, why not give Brent an opportunity to reform himself." Nancy didn't look like she was going to persuade Charles into employing her son, so Autumn thought she would come to her rescue. "I think Brent is capable of driving for me," she declared.

Charles was surprised to see his wife awake and making her way down the stairs. "What are you doing up already?" He would have wanted her to sleep longer and quickly stood up to help Autumn sit on the couch.

She smiled at her husband in gratitude. "I don't need any more sleep, Charles. Don't worry about me because I am feeling perfectly fine." Autumn held on to her husband's arm before pleading," Please say it's okay for Brent to

just would not stop. Helplessly, he admitted to himself that he had a huge crush on Autumn.

Anthony knew he needed to be psychologically strong to remember that Autumn was off-limits and forget his feelings for her. Yet, he also wished to remain like a guardian angel to her.

Autumn was surprised to see Anthony lose his composure. "Please calm down. I don't understand why you're becoming very upset. It was a casual question," said she.

Anthony shut his eyes for a few seconds to relax himself. Then he said," I think I'm okay now." The doctor realized he had behaved rudely and decided to get Autumn to leave. He pretended to check medical records on his table, and said," I have another patient to attend to."

"I'll be on my way," she teased Anthony, knowing she was dismissed.Autumn was slightly disappointed not to learn anything more about the good doctor.

After her hospital visit, Autumn instructed Brent to drive her straight to Cloud Advertising Company, without passing by the house. She brought cakes and milk tea for her colleagues whom she had missed terribly. They were also unusually busy at that time and would appreciate the visit.

Isla learned that Autumn was in the office, and as she walked out to meet her, Isla saw that her friend was already happily chatting with a group of staff.

Instantly, Isla was concerned that Autumn might get tired from standing so long. She expressed her displeasure quite loudly but affectionately. "Everyone is so excited to try out afternoon refreshments and chatting with Autumn but no one has even thought to make her sit down. Have you forgotten that she's expecting a baby and that she should be showered with care and love? Mr. Lu will not make it easy for all of you if his wife suddenly does not feel well because you kept her standing while talking."
