(Give Me A Chance)
Charles was now also a bit shocked by his own behavior. He also didn't understand why he became so impulsive.
Maybe because Autumn was really attractive at that moment. He just complained about her reaction after he kissed her.
After this entire situation, Autumn didn't speak a word. She silently lowered her head and ate her meal. Charles then stood up. When their cable car moved down, Autumn still didn't say anything.
Perhaps Charles couldn't stand such an oppressive atmosphere, so he spoke,"Yvonne, I have something to tell you."
"Please don't say anything." Autumn turned her head away. She kept silent and was angry over whatever happened. She thought she shouldn't have done such a thing with Charles, but she was really attracted to him. "I will forget... whatever happened earlier."
"Why?" The narrow cable car slowly moved down. Only Autumn and Charles were in it. Autumn didn't have any room to escape from Charles and was forced by him to get to the corner.
"Let go of me!" Autumn pulled a long face and stretched her hands to push Charles's chest, but Charles didn't move and still pressed her tightly against the corner.
Autumn got angry. She raised her head, and had upset expression gleaming through her eyes. "Charles Lu, I will just believe that whatever happened between us was something that you acted on impulse. I will forget it as if nothing happened. We are still in a contractual relationship. I won't foolishly think that you are falling in love with me. I will try not to let Miss Bai misunderstand anything. And please don't do anything like this with me anymore. Otherwise we will be embarrassed about it."
With a bitter smile on her face, Autumn continued saying,"I'm not Miss Bai. So please don't do such sort of thing to me."
Charles pulled a long face, with rage burning in his eyes.
'Does she think that I kissed her just because I take her as Rachel?' thought Charles.
He indeed kissed her on impulse, but he knew clearly that the one he kissed wasn't Rachel.
"You think that... I took you for Rachel just now?" There was a gleam of anger shining in his eyes.
"Didn't you?" Autumn looked up with pity. It seemed like she was on the verge of tears.
Before she could say something else, Charles kissed her right away. Compared to the previous tender kiss, his current kiss was overbearing. He didn't give Autumn any chance to refuse.
Autumn was suddenly pulled into his strong arms. Her unfinished words were drowned by his passionate kiss. Charles greedily snatched her breath and kissed her wildly.
He held her tightly and pinched her chin, not letting her turn her face. With rage burning in his eyes, he wildly bit her lips. His breath merged into hers.
"Don't..." She was about to say something to stop him, but when she opened her mouth, Charles conveniently put his tongue inside. His French kiss disturbed all her thoughts. All her sensations came to life. She was so furious that she wanted to react against him, but Charles tightly gripped her hands and she could only give a low... moan.
She was in a trance-like state while being kissed, so she slowly forgot to react against him and began to kiss him back.
After a long while, Charles let go of Autumn who was in his arms. He looked displeased and said,"Now... do you still think that I kiss you just because I take you as Rachel Bai?"
Autumn was confused. And she genuinely felt that Charles was serious.
'But he shouldn't do such sort of thing with me.
He is Rachel's boyfriend, and he just has a contractual relationship with me, ' she thought.
"Are you crazy?" Autumn gasped for breath.
Charles didn't say anything. When the cable car reached the foot of the mountain, Charles imperiously took Autumn by her hand and got out of the cable car. He then took her into his car.
Autumn was so shy that she didn't even dare to look at Charles. After waiting in the car for a long while, she saw that Charles didn't want to drive the car. She couldn't help but raise her head and said to Charles,"Why aren't you driving?"
Charles thought for a moment and then flatly spoke,"As for now, I want to let nature take its course. But eventually, I find that I can't take it slowly. So... I have to talk to you today and let you know about my feelings."
"..." Without saying anything, Autumn patiently waited for Charles to speak.
Charles took a deep breath and spoke,"I admit that in the beginning, I married you just to please my grandfather. But after we lived together for a few days, I found that you are different from what I expected. You took me... by surprise."
Charles frowned and continued,"The relationship between Rachel and I isn't unbreakable. In the past, I thought that she is the only person whom I want to marry in this life. But after living with you for a couple of days, I find that there is no love between Rachel and me. It seems that I am just habituated to her."
"I am used to letting her keep me company and having meals with her. I'm a lazy person. And as for my affection aspect, I also have no interest in having any connection with other women. I once thought now that I have met Rachel, she might be the best one for me." Charles paused a little and continued,"But the relationship between you and me is different from that between Rachel and me. Although I'm not sure that I have fallen in love with you, I for sure... don't dislike you. I am also interested in you. I try every way to get close to you. I want to know your choice and see you smile. I don't know if I like you, but I'm sure that I don't dislike you."
"What are you trying to say?" Autumn frowned and was completely confused about what Charles was saying.
"I have spoken so much today just to make you understand that Rachel isn't an obstacle. She can't stop us from taking this further. I like you, so..." Charles paused and then earnestly said to Autumn,"So can you give me a chance to chase you?"
After he finished talking, Charles didn't ask Autumn to answer him right away. Instead he said,"You don't have to answer me now. I will give you some time to think over it. We can let nature take its course. I just hope that you will not use Rachel as an excuse to refuse me. Got it?"
Somehow, Autumn nodded as she saw honesty in Charles's eyes. She didn't come back to her senses and realize what she just did until Charles delightedly held her in his arms.
When she saw that Charles was happy like a child, Autumn also smiled. After all, since she met him until now... She also didn't dislike him.
They went back home hand in hand. Chris keenly found that the air between them was little a different than usual. They seemed to be immersed in the romantic atmosphere, looking distinctively happy together.
"Yvonne, what is wrong with your lips?" Chris noticed that Charles looked very pleased, so he probably guessed what had happened between them. She couldn't help but jokingly say to Autumn,"They seem to be... bitten by someone."
