Episode 87

(Back at GU compound)

She opened the envelope and saw a plane ticket inside. The travel date was in three days, and its destination was... Z City. She had always wanted to go there.     

'Every time I brought up any plans to travel, Charles always kept silent about it.  But now he himself, bought me a ticket." Autumn thought to herself. She was so moved that she didn't know what to say.     

'I have been dying to go on a trip, but I had to give it up for many reasons. First, it was work and then grandma was ill and it would be hard to leave her by herself. Now, Charles bought me a ticket. I am still worried about my grandma but I should go.' she mused.   

Autumn asked Charles. "Why... Why did you do this?"    

"Don''t you like it?"    

"Of course I do. I just... never expected something like this." Autumn said with a smile, "Thank you!"    

"You can thank me later. I have a bigger surprise for you." Charles smiled and handed her another envelope. He said, "There's a travel guide on Z City inside the envelope. 

I have also booked the hotel for you. All the information is right there on the travel guide. Oh, one more thing. There is a bank card inside. You can use it to pay for your travel expenses. You can buy whatever you like during your trip." 

 When she looked at the hand-written travel guide, Autumn was exceedingly touched. She asked, "Did you prepare... all of these by yourself?"    

"How could I do that?" Charles touched his nose bashfully, and said, "I won't waste my time on these boring, trivial matters. David did all of these."    

Charles thought to himself. 'If I tell her that I collected all this travel information while she was asleep every night, she might make fun of me.'  

Charles instinctively said that David prepared all of it.     

Autumn couldn't help but laugh. "Obviously this is Charles's handwriting. He looked so cute... 
lying like that." she mused.  
Autumn took the bank card from the envelope and gave it to Charles. She said in a serious tone, "I accept the travel guide and the ticket, but ... I can't take this."    

She paused for a while, and then continued, "I got a sum of money from Cloud Advertising Company when I left. With that, I can afford my travel expenses so I don't need your card."  

"Ye, why don't you take my card anyway?" Charles said with a displeasing look, "You're my wife now, so you are supposed to use my money."    

"I know. But..." After hesitating, Autumn continued, "I can afford things myself now. I don't need to spend your money. If I run out of money one day, I will use yours. I promise."    

Charles realized that Autumn had made up her mind and took back the card. He said, "If anything goes wrong on your trip, don't forget to call me."    

Autumn nodded and said, "I will. One more thing. Today, mom called and asked us to come home to dine with them. I know that you have an important appointment tonight, so..."  

Charles nodded, "It's okay. I will go." He added, "You go first after you get off work. Tell mom that I will be a bit late."    

Autumn also nodded in agreement and said, "You don't need to force yourself to go if you do not have the time. I will explain it to mom."    

Charles took her hand and said, "Don't worry about it." "You can get off work earlier today. After all, you have already quitted you job. Go home to the Gu family early."    

"I will." Autumn didn't refuse anymore. She wanted to know what trick Wendy was playing this time. 

  After she left Charles's office, she started to pack her stuff. Leila was amazed to see that, so she asked, "Ye, what are you doing?"    

Autumn replied plainly, "I'm packing up my stuff." She added, "Is there anything wrong?"    Leila said, "I know you're packing up your things. I mean... Why are you doing it?''    

"I quit my job." Nobody had any idea about her resignation except David. Even Linda was stunned.     

Since the incident, Linda had been embarrassed to face Autumn. Now hearing that Autumn had quitted, Linda was rather surprised.   

Autumn smiled and told Leila, "I won't be coming to work tomorrow. I hope you do a good job here."    

It didn't take long for Autumn to finish her packing as she had worked in Shining Company just for a few days. When she walked out of the company, she bought some presents in case Charles was in a hurry and forgot to bring any. She didn't want to give Wendy any chance to look down upon Charles.     
Now Yvonne was supposed to be at work. But when Autumn arrived at the Gu family house, she was surprised to see Yvonne home.     Autumn put the presents on the table, and greeted plainly, "Mom..."

  Before Autumn arrived, her mother and Yvonne had been chatting with each other on the couch, about how, with the help of Charles, Simon had solved the crisis that his company faced. Now, they had continued to lead a well-off life that common people admired.     

Autumn's arrival broke the merry atmosphere.     

Autumn was raised by her grandma. Although she had been told that Wendy lived here at the Gu house, she seldom came. Therefore, she had no attachment to the Gu family, let alone Simon.   

Autumn greeted Wendy coldly, and then sat on the couch. If Yvonne hadn't escaped before her wedding ceremony, she wouldn't have had anything to do with this family.     

"You're really different now. After becoming Mrs. Lu, you don't even greet the elders anymore." Because of what had happened that night, Yvonne was so angry that she didn't go to work for two days. She continued, "You're still just a bastard. Even if you have gotten married to Charles. You should show your respect when you come here. You're just a bitch without a mother to teach you."    

Hearing this, Autumn didn't get angry at all. Instead, she looked at Wendy provocatively.   

'To embarrass me, Yvonne disrespected Wendy as well,' Autumn thought. And Wendy felt awkward.     

'I gave birth to her but didn't teach her well,' thought Wendy to herself.     
Wendy frowned and asked, "Why did you come alone? Where is Charles?"    

Autumn flatly replied, "I told you that he had an appointment tonight. He will be a bit late."    

Wendy didn't say a word. Yvonne stared at Autumn and said, "Autumn, I warn you that Charles will be mine one day. You'd better keep that in mind. Otherwise, I will never spare you."  

Yvonne wasn't there. She turned to Wendy and asked, "Didn't you promise to let me see grandma once I managed to let Charles agree to dine with Yvonne? Why haven't you arranged our meeting? Are you going to break your promise again?"
