Charles agreed with his wife. "Yes, it's best for you to go home," he told Autumn's grandparents. "I can stay with Autumn. It's already getting late and you must be tired already."

Arthur and Amy were quite old so Autumn didn't want to endanger their health by worrying about her. So, she made sure to assure them she was getting better.

"Oh, all right. You're right anyway. We will leave now." Arthur said. To Autumn he whispered," You, my dear, get plenty of rest." Amy agreed. She didn't want to be out of the house for a long time in case Emily would learn about what happened to Autumn.

Autumn stayed in the hospital for three days. Charles was with her the whole time. Sometimes, she would wake up in the middle of the night due to nightmares and would see her husband working with his laptop. She felt guilty and sorry for him.

Her husband had more to worry about because of her hospitalization so she needed to make it up to him once she was better.

Anthony came in to check her everyday. Once he was sure Autumn was out of danger, he announced that she could be discharged from the hospital. Charles, though, wasn't in the room when he said that. So Anthony stayed a little longer, talking with Autumn. She found his humor quite amusing.

Autumn mentioned that it was Lisa who took care of her before he arrived. This embarrassed Anthony, because of the way he treated Lisa, even knowing what she had done for Autumn.

He was completely wrong about Lisa, he thought.

Autumn noted the change in her doctor's mood."What's wrong?" she inquired.

"Nothing," Anthony quickly replied. He shook his head lightly, and gave Autumn a small smile.

Autumn stared at her doctor, trying to see if she could get a hint about his concern from Anthony's expression. Recalling their previous conversations, Autumn suddenly remembered Anthony mentioning a foreign girlfriend when he worked overseas.

She started to put two and two together. Autumn probed," Is Lisa… Is she the ex-girlfriend you were referring to?"

Anthony was taken aback. He wanted to deny it but decided it was better to tell the truth. "Yes, she's the one."

Her suspicions confirmed, Autumn was now confused. "What?" She didn't want to badger her doctor but was curious. "So why is she here in the same hospital where you are?" Anthony inhaled deeply. How did he explain things to Autumn?

Instead he frowned. "I can't explain ev

llo Miss Zhao," she said pleasantly. Lisa ran to Anthony excitedly. When she saw Autumn, she was a little amazed.

Autumn smiled and said," Hello, Lisa. I'm about to leave the hospital and came to say goodbye to Anthony. I just came to your office but the nurse told me you went out. Thank you for your help."

Lisa responded," It was my pleasure. Take care of yourself." She handed the coffee and sandwich to Anthony. "They are your favorite latte and tuna sandwich. Eat them first before going home. So you can just rest after," Lisa instructed.

"Thank you," was all Anthony could say as he accepted the food. "I think it's time for me to leave," Autumn broke the awkward situation. She noted how beautiful Lisa was, and kind, too. It was also obvious how much she loved Anthony. Autumn just hoped that one day the two of them would get back together. But for now, she should leave and give them space and time to rediscover one another.

When Autumn had gone, Lisa told Anthony," Eat them before they get cold. I had to go far to get them. Sit and eat. And tell me if they really are good or not."

Anthony was thinking of something to say. "Lisa, I…" But she interrupted him. "Well, I should be getting back to work now," she said abruptly.

"Wait!" he said, to stop her from leaving. Lisa turned to listen. "Would you like to have dinner with me?" he asked.

She couldn't believe her ears. "What did you say?" she asked. 'Anthony invited me to have dinner with him?' Lisa thought. 'I must have heard wrong.'

Still uncertain of what he said, she asked Anthony. "What did you just ask me?"
