Episode 47

(Edward enraged)

Sam picked up his phone, answering the call immediately.

"How is she doing? Is she okay?" Autumn asked, worry etched on her face.

"She's fine," he said, trying to alleviate her anxiety.

Chris had a tendency to use alcohol as a coping mechanism, often drinking her problems away. Despite this, Sam knew she was an innocent girl. "Don't worry. I'll look after her."

"Thank God," Autumn sighed, relieved to know that Chris was in a good condition.

She knew how hard it must have been for her, having gone through the same thing before. But Autumn had already moved on. Chris, on the other hand, found it hard to do so. Given the situation, she decided to call Charles to ask for some advice.

"Hey, Autumn. What's up?" Leila said, answering the phone.

Autumn was taken aback, shocked to hear Leila's voice on the other line.

"Where is Charles?! Why do you have his phone?!"

She exclaimed, still finding it hard to trust Leila.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Lu is busy right now. But don't worry. If you have anything you want to say to him, I'll make sure to pass it on," she lied, knowing fully well that Charles was just using the bathroom.

She was never alloweded to touch anything and was only ever asked to look after his belongings. But she couldn't help answering the call after seeing the name on the screen.

"Never mind. I'll just call him later," Autumn replied coldly.

"He has pressing matters to attend to so he has been really busy lately. He rarely gets enough rest as he has to work almost 20 hours a day. To tell you the truth, he even nearly fell asleep in the meeting today,"

Leila said even before Autumn had the chance to end the call.

"He clearly needs more time for himself or else his work will be extremely affected. You're his wife. Don't you think you should give him more consideration?" she continued, sounding like a relentless boss.

Leila, being the only woman by the side of Charles at the moment, thought the situation worked in her advantage.

"What are you trying to say?" Autumn asked, stunned that she would speak in such manner. The situation couldn't be any more ridiculous. She was the one responsible for Leila's recommendation to work as Charles's secretary. If she had knew Leila would eventually talk to her this way she wouldn't have even helped her out of kindness. She was the wife of Charles after all, she shouldn't be treated like that.

"Well…" Leila started, pausing for a moment.

"I'm just voicing out my concern. It's just alarming to see Mr. Lu in such a state. Do you want to see him exhausted every day?" she explained further.

Afraid to be seen by Charles, Leila pressed the end call button, hanging up the phone quickly. This left Autumn no chance to respond.

Not knowing Charles's password, Leila tried to delete the call record but to no avail.

On the other hand, Autumn was surprised that she would receive such hostile treatment from Leila. She decided to bring this up to Charles the moment they got the chance to talk.

Visiting Dream Garden proved to be worthwhile for Rachel. Feeling happy more than ever, she went to go shopping by herself. Upon arriving at the house, she saw Edward sitting on the sofa with a serious expression. She realized he had already known where she went today without her even saying anything.

Pretending that nothing had happened, she smiled at him and said, "You know what I discovered today? There are actually some great wedding studios in the city! I have visited them and I'm so glad for what I've found. Look, what do you think about this one?"

She continued, offering the brochure to him. "This studio has excellent photographers," she said, pointing at the cover. "I was even able to talk to one of them and they're really professional. I definitely think you should try to visit and see for yourself."

"Where exactly have you been?" Edward asked with annoyance, ignoring what she told him.

"Me?" Rachel asked, pointing at herself.
"I just went shopping for a bit. The wedding preparation has been really stressing me out so I thought it'd be nice to treat myself even just a little."

Rachel desperately hoped that he would just let the matter go.

"What did you do before you went shopping?

Did you go anywhere else?"

Edward asked as he stared at her coldly, his tone clearly revealing his anger.

Feeling a little frightened, Rachel answered in a low voice, "I didn't go anywhere."

Unconvinced, Edward decided to ask her the question again.

"Are you sure? This is your last chance. Don't lie to me," he told her with furrowed eyebrows.

There was tension in the atmosphere as they looked at each other, waiting for someone to talk. After a few moments of silence, Rachel decided to confess. "I went to Dream Garden-"

A slap suddenly stung Rachel's cheek, making her gasp.

She went to touch her face, feeling his hand hit her skin.

"You know what? I thought you would stick to your words and help me solve my problem. I was incredibly moved when you offered help so I decided to trust you. Clearly, I was wrong," Edward said, expressing his disappointment.

"You went as far as visiting the Lu family just so you can see Chris and drill words inside her head. What the hell for?" he exclaimed.

Edward, aware that Rachel can very much use him as revenge against Charles, has always been extremely suspicious of her motives.

"Did Gary tell you this?"

Rachel asked, not even half upset for being slapped because she already expected it.

"It's none of your business. You don't need to know who relayed that information. But you need to tell me why did you go to visit the Lu family,"

Edward said, determined to know the answer to his question.

"Do you think I'd only marry you so that I can use you? Do you really think so little of me?" she asked as she looked at him, smiling bitterly. Pretending to feel heartbroken, Rachel even went to touch her face to feel where his hand had hit her.

"Answer my question honestly and stop trying to change the topic! I wouldn't stop until you tell me the truth," he demanded.

Edward knew that Rachel was different. Unlike other women, she wasn't after his money and that was exactly why he had wanted to marry her in the first place. But it seemed that Chris had been on her mind lately, which made him feel worried.

Rachel was on the brink of tears, feeling extremely distressed. She tried so hard to hold her tears as she looked straight at him. Edward almost felt sorry for her to see her like this; even doubting if she'd done anything wrong.

"I knew that you'd be mad even before I decided to pay them a visit. But I had no choice. I really had to go, " Rachel said, trying to explain herself.

"Do you know that I did all of this just so I could help you?" she asked, looking at him straight in the eye.

"Help me? That's ridiculous!"

Edward exclaimed, finding her statement extremely absurd.

"You don't have any idea how conflicting all of this for me, " he said, not knowing what to believe anymore.
