Season 3

Episode 62

(Silk scarf)

But Autumn shook her head. In all fairness, the scarf could easily highlight one's character. It wouldn't be a shame to give it to any woman of Sam's mother's age, but...... . It's for Jane, Sam's mother.

"Isn't it nice?" Chris looked at Autumn, a bit confused. Then she looked at the scarf again. "I think it's quite pretty."

"Yes, it is. But Jane won't be fond of it."

She remembered that Jane preferred things with bright and vibrant colors. She might not be interested in a scarf having subtle or dull colors.

Autumn went around the store to look for other scarves that Jane would like. But there were none that caught her eye. Autumn and Chris began to lose hope.

"I see that you are looking around for a scarf, ladies." A shopping guide came up to them and asked, "Could you please tell me what kind of scarf you prefer?"

"Do you have any silk scarves?" Autumn herself didn't know why she asked such a question. But thinking about it, Autumn thought that both the material and the color of a silk scarf would be a perfect match to Jane's temperament and character.

The shopping guide took out several silk scarves for Chris and Autumn to choose from. They found one that they immediately liked. It was made of real silk and had a bright color. "You have good taste, my ladies. This scarf was designed by our in-house designer. It is sold in a limited edition, so our store only has this one for sale."

"That's great. How about this one?" Chris gave a look at Autumn, and was ready to buy the silk scarf without asking how much it cost.

"Wait a moment." The shopping guide was quite happy and she was ready to pack the silk scarf for Chris when there came a familiar voice. A voice that they wished they'd never hear again. "That scarf looks so nice. I will take it."

Both Autumn and Chris rolled their eyes and turned around and there was Rachel. Chris did not hide her displeasure. She shot a hostile look toward Rachel and complained, "How unlucky are we to see you everywhere. What are you doing here? Shouldn't you be preparing your dream wedding at home?"

"I'm here to buy some things." Rachel snatched the silk scarf from the hands of Chris. She actually had no interest in the scarf. She wanted it only because she saw that Chris was ready to buy it and wanted to give her a hard time. "As you know, I am going to get married and I will be extremely busy. As for you two, one of you is unmarried, and the other got married in place of someone else.

Neither of you know how it is to be in my shoes, don't you agree?"

Rachel put on a fake smile. Playing with the silk scarf in her hand, she said to Chris, "This scarf feels good indeed. I can buy it for my maid at home. She deserves it. If she hadn't helped me with these insane wedding preparations, I may have gone crazy myself and would have left everything in a mess."

"You......" It took Chris a long time to select a suitable scarf, but Rachel came out of nowhere and snatched it away.

"Rachel, you are just doing this on purpose to spite me!" Chris retorted.

"Yes, you are right. And what are you going to do about it?" Rachel challenged. After coming back home from Dream Garden, Edward had never mentioned anything about reuniting with Chris.

Rachel has brought it up several times but Edward fiercely told her to drop it. Rachel actually already knew that Edward was avoiding the subject so as not to accidentally say something that should not be said. The more Rachel insisted, the more upset Edward became.

It would be nice, anyway. At least, after she got married to Edward, she wouldn't need to endure having to live with Chris.
She was now engaged to Edward, which Chris could do nothing about. This is why Rachel could act complacent and arrogant. She continued, "I really like this scarf. Since I am getting married soon, could you give this scarf up and let me have it? And I will also make a compromise. Um......, how about letting me pay for anything else that you fancy around here? As compensation for the damage I'm making today. What do you two think?"

"You are going too far! Just who the hell do you think you are?" Chris wanted to slap Rachel in the face. But she held back as she didn't want to say anything about her relations with Edward. It was something that she had to accept. Now, Rachel provoking her by using Edward's money was just too much.

"How can I go too far?" Rachel sneered. "Oh my sweet, dear Chris, you will be calling me MOM in a few days. Don't you even know how to respect a woman who is senior to you? Now I'd like to buy this scarf, so you should give it to me and let the salesgirl pack it for me."

Rachel turned to the shopping guide with a cold face. The shopping guide was stumped. She frowned and mumbled, "This is......"

"This is what? Do you think that I cannot afford it?" Rachel asked with her eyebrows raised.

"No, no, that's not what I meant, ma'am." The shopping guide denied it promptly.

The shopping guide could easily recognize Rachel as a super star despite her dull appearance today. So, of course, what she worried about was not whether Rachel could afford to pay, but .....

"It's this lady who has already chosen this scarf before you. She is now ready to pay for it, so ......." The shopping guide looked at Rachel with her head low.

Rachel cast a fierce glance at the shopping guide, which scared her half to death.

"Yes, she took a fancy to it before me. So what? She hasn't paid for it yet, has she?" Rachel waved her off and said, "Go and pack it for me."

She casually took out a bank card from her purse.

"You....." Chris was seething mad. She tried her best to select a proper gift, but now, that bitch, Rachel came to ruin everything. Chris let out a scream and rushed to claw out at her but was grabbed in time by Sam who had just entered the shop.

"What are you doing this for? If a mad dog bites you, will you bite it back? If you do, that will make you just as mad and despicable." As soon as Sam finished his small lecture, Autumn burst into laughter.

Autumn knew what Sam meant. It may have sounded like he was scolding Chris on the surface, but in fact, it was Rachel whom he was calling a mad dog.

Hearing what Sam said to Chris, Rachel looked embarrassed but defiant.

"Sam, could you repeat what you have said just now?" Rachel asked, sounding sinister.

"I can repeat it for you more than ten times if that's what you like." Sam turned to Rachel, "Miss Bai, the audacity you have of snatching things away from others will not do you any good. You think you are doing well but you are careless. This will all come crashing down on you someday. So, be careful!"

Rachel looked away and crossed her arms. Sam was right. Only by grabbing others people's possessions could she find her own value of existence. She only meant to give Autumn and Chris a hard time.

After saying that to Rachel, Sam turned to Chris to comfort her. "Since Miss Bai wants this scarf, we just give it to her. She is so poor now. She only finds her self-esteem by taking the scarf away from you. Let's just leave the scarf to her and go."

On hearing Sam's words, Chris cooled down and smiled. He was right. Rachel only found satisfaction with herself by putting others down. And the more Chris reacted to her provocations, the more Rachel would be thrilled. Ignoring her would be the best thing to do.

Autumn also realized this, so she advised Chris, "How about going to other stores and having a look some more?"

Seeing the three leaving, Rachel went after them, "Wait! don't you want this silk scarf?"
