"Yeah, here it is," Burke affirmed, a soft smile lighting up his face. "You'll be teaching here soon. Are you happy?"

"Yes, of course," Pamela replied in a happy tone, her eyes sparkling. She was over the moon at the prospect of starting her new job. She turned to face Burke and clashed into his smiling eyes. The air sizzled with the strong chemistry between them that they both looked away hurriedly. Pamela's face turned red while Burke tried to look nonchalant.

Burke cleared his throat and said,"It's getting late. Let me bring you home."

"Sure," Pamela agreed readily. When she left home to study abroad, Pamela didn't really forget about Burke, despite how much she tried. Seeing him again like this made her realize that she still loved him.

They were both quiet on the drive back to Pamela's house. Upon arriving, Burke parked in front of her gate. "Here we are," he said as he turned to Pamela, finally breaking the silence.

Before leaving the car, Pamela decided to speak. "Thank you, Burke. See you later!" Pamela said, trying to sound cheerful. Deep inside, she was disappointed that he was leaving so soon. She smiled up at him, overcoming her shyness. "Do you think we can hang out later?"

"Of course. You can call me anytime." His reply came without hesitation as he was seemingly pleased at her request. He was almost afraid he sounded too eager, shaking his head as he drove away.

Meanwhile, in the Dream Garden, Autumn was blooming with good health. Brent seemed to turn over a new leaf after receiving much scolding from Nancy. Nothing went missing at home after that.

With Chris and Sam's wedding fast approaching, both families were busy with wedding preparations.

Time passed in a blur. Autumn never missed her regular check-up at the hospital while actively helping Chris with her wedding preparations. Since there were only three days left before the wedding, Chris stopped meeting Sam. Instead, they resolved to call each other daily.

Chris hung up the phone and met Autumn's teasing eyes.

"Stop it, Autumn. Quit teasing me!" Chris reproached Autumn.

"I was just wondering about what you guys talk abo

ad husband. Once I got to know him better, I knew how lucky I was to be his wife.' Autumn thought to herself.

"I know Charles. Your assumptions about your brother are wrong. He really is a good man," Autumn defended her husband staunchly. "You will also be a wife in just a few days. The only thing you need now is to get some beauty sleep to make sure that you'll be the most beautiful woman at the wedding. On top of that, you also need to plan your married life. Focus on those two important tasks instead of worrying unnecessarily about me."

"But..." Chris said, interrupting Autumn. "I'm worried about you and your unborn babies," she continued, mimicking a man's voice and looking concernedly at Autumn. Autumn laughed spontaneously at Chris' hilarious expression, clutching her belly. "You're impossible!" she said, after a few minutes of laughter.

Charles got off from work early and went home directly. He heard laughter coming from the living room as he stepped inside. He found his wife and his sister sitting companionably together. A soft smile broke on his tired face. 'They are the two most important women in my life. One is pregnant with my children, and the other is about to get married. After her wedding day, she will now be a wife in another house, ' he thought as he gazed at them affectionately.

Despite feeling happy, he also felt upset at the thought of Chris getting married and finally leaving home.
