Charles kept asking her questions. However, he didn't realize how his questions made her feel since Sheryl didn't see herself as Autumn.

All he could think of was that she had forgotten everything about him. He didn't understand what she had gone through in the past three years. Those years represented her life, the only life she knew, and he wasn't acknowledging them.

The entire situation was quite confusing for Sheryl. On one side, she had felt a connection toward Charles from the very first time she saw him, which she couldn't explain. On the other side, what Charles had said just then made her heart ache, as she finally realized that he was not really talking to her but to Autumn.

In fact, as far as she could remember, Charles wasn't the only one to see her as Autumn; Isla and the others did too. 'Do we really look so much alike? How is that possible?' she wondered.

The unsettling thought made her heart even sorer, but she couldn't quite put her finger on the reason why. Maybe it was just that she was mad at Charles for always seeing her as his wife instead of herself.

She wasn't going to accept that any longer! She had to set some boundaries, which meant that moment would be the end of their mingling.

"Who do you think you're talking to, Mr. Lu?" Sheryl questioned him in a hostile manner. With her face curdled into a sneer, she continued,"Are you addressing Autumn Zhao right now?"

Charles was stunned. He didn't know where to begin answering her. How could he explain that she was indeed Autumn when she only knew herself as Sheryl? "No listen, I just ..." Charles managed to let out before she interrupted him.

"Please leave me alone! You keep showing up in front of me, saying that you love me... all that because I look like your wife, right? Well let me tell you something: I'm not her! Please stop daydreaming and get back to reality."

Her response deflated him like a week old balloon. Looking at the serious expression on her face, he steepled his hands together and laid them over his mouth trying to find the right answer. He loved her more than he could bear and her words felt like scores of arrows puncturing his fragile heart.

"Why are you silent? I'm right, huh?" Sheryl persisted coldly. She couldn't realize how wrong she was in her accusations. All she could feel was hurt thinking that Charles was taking her as another woman. She tried to persuade herself that her jealousy was normal, that no one would appreciate being valu

ve lost your right to be with her.

For three damn years, I wasn't able to see her! But, after what felt like an eternity, she's finally back; and now she has to deal with your expectations, let alone what she's gone through already! Why don't you just leave her in peace?"

"Grandma!" Charles exclaimed miserably. "She's Autumn! She's my wife and Shirley's my daughter. The two most important women in my life are inside that room. Yes, I admit that I failed to keep my promise to you and that I let her down three years ago. But this is why I want to make it up to her.

I swear that I'll never ever hurt her again! I love her and I can't live without her! Grandma, please!" However, Amy wouldn't budge.

She sighed once more and replied firmly,"I don't believe you, and I won't risk my granddaughter's happiness again. Please remember that she's Sheryl now, not Autumn. I don't care what her name is or whether she can recognize me; all I want is for her to be safe and sound. As long as I can see her every day, I'll be more than content. Mr. Lu, please back away from my baby; this is the best thing you can do for her right now."

Charles knew that Amy was also mad at him because of Charlie. However, he couldn't clarify anything for her.

He pulled back for a moment and then pleaded with her once more,"Grandma, please don't be mad at me. I swear to God that I'll put her in front of anything from now on and that I won't hurt her anymore."

Amy turned around without any response. She retreated to the room and left Charles hanging outside. Unable to keep his chin up anymore, Charles decided to call Charlie out and then left with his son.
