(Late for work)
Charles didn't reply, but Yvonne took that as a yes. She went bouncing back to her room because she needed to get dressed up. She was glad that she could at least spend some time with Charles on the way to Shining Company. It was a good chance for her to seduce him. She thought that she would seize this opportunity.
She was beautifully made-up and she had also put on her favorite clothes. When she arrived at the front yard, she got an unpleasant shock. Charles had already left.
She assumed that Charles would wait for her, so she didn't worry about how she was going to go to work. But now…
When she saw Nancy passing by, she stopped her and asked, "Where is Charles?"
Nancy didn't like Autumn, but she found Yvonne also annoying. Yvonne was supercilious and impolite. Nancy glanced at Yvonne with scorn as she said, "Mr. Lu has gone to work. He said that he called a taxi for you. It will be here shortly. You can have your breakfast while you wait for it."
Nancy turned to leave when she thought of something and looked back at Yvonne, saying, "Oh, by the way, Mr. Lu said that if you are late he will cut your bonus."
Chris gave a chuckle of delight as she walked down the stairs. She heard what Nancy had said and was glad to see Yvonne standing there stupefied. She finally knew why Autumn smiled from ear to ear last night. Yvonne was like the dumb woman eating the bitter herb; she had to suffer in silence. Chris found the scene to be more enjoyable than hearing any jokes.
Yvonne heard Chris's chuckle and thought, 'It would be great if I could get a lift in Chris's car. After all, I can flatter Chris on the way to work. Sooner or later, she will be my sister-in-law.'
Unfortunately, her dream didn't come true. Chris refused Yvonne directly, "I am sorry, we are not going in the same direction. You'd better wait for your taxi."
Then Chris shouted at the direction of the kitchen, "Nancy, where is my breakfast?"
"I am coming. I am coming." Nancy walked out of the kitchen and said, as she handed a thermos container to Chris, "Miss Lu, it's your favorite shrimp congee. Don't forget to have it."
"I know. I am leaving," Chris waved goodbye to Nancy and hummed to herself as she left for work.
Yvonne was late for work, but she could only blame herself for it. When she found some free time, she called Wendy to complain about the humiliation she had suffered last night. Wendy frowned at Yvonne's complaint.
She thought to herself, 'I am so good at scheming. Why is my beloved daughter so stupid? Although I don't like Autumn, she is more like me. She is smart and she knows how to win a man's heart.'
She sighed and said, "Yvonne, I can't help you with this. You must rely on yourself this time. I am always thinking of ways to help you, but you have to use your own way to seduce Charles now. If you have sex with him, I promise Charles will marry you. But you have to use your brain and make it happen."
The more Yvonne thought about it, the more upset she got, so she changed the topic, "Let's stop talking about me. I am asking you, when you get back, teach Autumn a lesson. I want that little bitch to bend the knee."
"Okay, I promise you. Her good days will be over soon," Wendy assured Yvonne with a firm compliance.
"How are you doing? What did she say?" Yvonne asked.
"Don't worry about me. I will take care of it. I'm warning you, you only have one chance. If you miss it, you won't have any more chances," Wendy reminded Yvonne, "Okay. I have something to do right now. I have to hang up. You should try to play to the score tactically. If necessary, you can use the thing I gave to you."
"I see." When Yvonne hung up, she felt annoyed and perplexed.
When it was nearly time to go home from work, Yvonne went to the CEO's office, only to find that Charles had already left.
Yvonne's hope of taking Charles's car to go home went up in smokes. She almost swore at him in anger.
When she turned to go downstairs for a taxi, Leila stopped her, "Autumn, why haven't you called me lately? Did I do something wrong?"
"No." Yvonne thought, 'I am only so eager to move into Lu family house because you have your eyes set on Charles.' Leila was just another pain in the ass for her.
"What's wrong with you? You look tired. Didn't you get any sleep last night?" Leila asked Yvonne, pretending to care for her.
It was impossible to have a good rest in a maid room.
She thought, 'If Leila found out what had happened yesterday, she should surely laugh at me.' So she said coldly, "Do you have anything else to say? If not, I am leaving."
"Wait a minute," Leila held Yvonne's hand as she said, "Autumn, do you have any plan for tonight? I'd like to go shopping with you. It has been a long time since we went shopping and chatted over dinner."
"I don't think there is any need." Yvonne shook off Leila's hand as she sneered, "I am not free tonight. Moreover I will never have time to go out with you. Please don't act as if we are friends. We are not even acquaintances."
"I… What the hell did I do wrong?" Yvonne completely changed her attitude towards Leila, which confused her a lot.
She had no idea what Linda had said to make Yvonne so hostile towards her. She intended to ask Yvonne to dinner so that she could learn more about Mrs. Lu. Unfortunately, her plan failed.
Leila was in a bad mood after Yvonne had left. When she got home, and saw the suit jacket hanging on a stand in the living room, she had an idea.
She was looking for a chance to meet Mrs. Lu, but she couldn't find the opportunity. Since Charles's suit jacket was here, returning it would be a good excuse to visit Mrs. Lu.
Leila packed the clean, ironed suit jacket and drove to the Lu family house. When she stood in front of the Dream Garden, she thought to herself, 'One day I will be the hostess here, sooner or later.'
Leila took a deep breath and was about to ring the door bell when she heard Yvonne's cold voice. As soon as Yvonne arrived at Dream Garden, she saw Leila and asked with wrinkled brows, "What are you doing here?"
She had been cautious of Leila because Leila wanted to seduce Charles.
According to her, Leila was a thief trying to steal Charles away from her. Thus, she wouldn't give Leila any chances out of the office.
