Rachel shook her head and said," No, thanks." She didn't think that Chris would give her a fake ticket since she had already given her one million. She cast a glance at Edward, and finally said," Let's go. We'll finish the paperwork here and have nothing to do with each other anymore."

Rachel walked fast heading for the gate. She kept her chin up. Chris stayed behind. Seeing Rachel and Edward go inside, she let out a sigh of relief. Chris had been nervous asking Rachel if she would check out the ticket that was handed to her. Had she done so, Rachel would have discovered Chris' trickery and the whole plan would be screwed.

But Rachel didn't. She was more interested in the money.

Not long after, the former couple came out of the bureau with Chris walking towards Rachel to hand her the card. "I wish you nothing but happiness, Miss Bai," Chris told Rachel before turning to Edward. "Let's go home, Dad."

Once inside the car, Chris looked out the window to see Rachel's expression. Seeing the excitement in her face, Chris burst into laughter.

Edward frowned slightly. "What are you laughing about?" He saw amusement in his daughter's eyes.

But she only said," Nothing." After a few seconds, Chris was unable to hold back her glee and turned to her father. "Dad, the air ticket I bought for Rachel is for some poor little country. I couldn't help laughing because I can already imagine how desperate and mad she would become once she gets to the airport the day after tomorrow!"

Edward was initially shocked. But eventually, he joined in the laughter. He found it totally hilarious that Rachel, always cautious in everything, would find herself in some far away land like a deported refugee.

Rachel found herself very lucky to have sold her apartment in a day. With the money from the sale plus the amount given by Chris, she would start a new life overseas.

So it came as a complete shock when, arriving at the airport, she realized she was holding a ticket for a country she had never heard of. Rachel was fuming mad and immediately called Chris to berate her. Her call was unanswered. Rachel knew she could not throw a tantrum in public.

What was she to do? Her apartment had been sold so she had no place to stay. Rachel grudgingly decided

stayed with Chris to wait. After Anthony, Chris also called Charles to relate what happened.

Lisa finally got the results of Autumn's tests and saw she was suffering from acute gastroenteritis. She was about to order the nurse to give the appropriate medication when Anthony barged into the emergency room. He gave Autumn a worried look and tried to help her sit up.

Lisa stepped forward to inform him of the results. "The woman is suffering from acute gastroenteritis," she began. "She needs to be given medication now."

But Anthony snapped at her," She is my patient and you no longer have to worry about her." He flashed Lisa a cold stare before escorting Autumn to another area. Chris, still worried, followed behind. Lisa stood where she was, shocked at Anthony's behavior.

'What is wrong with Anthony? I just wanted to help and he acted like I was to blame for what happened, ' she thought.

Anthony usually had a grip on his emotions. But when he received Chris' call that Autumn was taken to the hospital, his heart raced and he drove as fast as he could to get to her. It was a struggle to hide his emotions when he saw Autumn lying down, face so pale.

It shook him that he was afraid he would lose Autumn forever.

Anthony did another round of tests to make sure it was really just gastroenteritis. He let out a sigh of relief when this was confirmed. He prescribed the necessary medication for pregnant women and had Autumn lie in bed before covering her with a blanket to keep her warm.
