Charles knew he shouldn't have blamed Andy for Autumn's disappearance, but was unable to control himself. He had been close to losing his mind since his wife went missing.

"Sorry. I forgot to mention that he traveled by sea," Andy told Charles. He understood Charles' behavior because he felt responsible for what happened and decided to cut him some slack. "I'm sorry about what happened," Andy offered.

But Charles was inconsolable. "Sorry? It's useless apologizing," he said harshly. "Can your sorry bring my Autumn back?" he said in despair. Charles stared at Andy with bloodshot eyes. Suddenly, he raised his fist and was about to strike the other man. Chris grabbed her brother with all her strength.

"Calm down, Charles! Now isn't the time for violence. What's important is that we find Ferry and Autumn. Blaming people at this point isn't going to help us." Chris gripped Charles' arm tightly until her brother started to relax.

'She's a pregnant woman. Where could she have gone?' Charles wondered.

"Charles, what happened was all our fault," Abby said. "Once we find Autumn we'll accept whatever punishment you give us." She kept rubbing her rounded belly to soothe her nerves.

The incident had depressed everyone, especially Arthur and Amy, who just recently reunited with their granddaughter. The two seemed to have aged faster because of too much worrying. They never expected Autumn to be involved in something like this.

"Autumn is pregnant with twins. It's too dangerous for her to be out there now." Chris was tearful as she kept thinking about Autumn.

Sam did his best to console Chris. Charles was in agony and had to deal with his fears. He felt worse as he saw people around him suffering.

He suddenly stood up to go out. Chris cried out to stop him. "Where are you going?"

"Get out of my way. I'm going to look for her," Charles snarled. Chris saw her brother looking very serious and restless. He detested not being able to do anything to find his wife.

"No! You can't go," Chris pleaded. She stood to block his path. "You've been up for a long time. You need to sleep. Otherwise, you'll be sick."

Chris was now just as concerned about Charles' health as she was about Autumn.

She knew if her brother continued to worry about his wife without eating

thony's apartment.

When she finally woke up, the first thing she saw was a man holding a tiny infant in his arms. He looked at the child with eyes filled with so much emotion.

Instinctively, Autumn called out,"Charles!"

She called out softly, yet Anthony heard her distinctly. He moved towards the bed, holding the baby carefully.

"Thank God, you're awake!" he said in relief. Autumn finally recognized the man as Anthony, not Charles.

She gave a bitter smile. It was impossible for her husband to be there with her.

"I am awake," she replied. Autumn struggled to sit up. When she saw the baby in Anthony's arms, her face lit up. She remembered seeing the infant the first time. It was ugly when she was born but now looked prettier.

"She looks so small," she said in wonder. Anthony handed the baby girl to Autumn carefully.

"She was born premature, and is a twin. That's why she's smaller than most babies," he explained. "But don't worry, I've completely examined her, and she is very healthy." Anthony spoke calmly to keep Autumn from getting anxious.

She stared at her baby and felt sorry for the child. She kept stroking her head to relax the two of them.

The baby remained very quiet. She cried when she was born but barely did since then, even when she wanted to feed on her mother's breast.

But now, she looked comfortable in Autumn's arms and quickly fell asleep.

Anthony got the infant and put her in the crib. He turned back to Autumn and asked,"Now, can you tell me what happened to you?"
