(Achieve the purpose)

Edward sighed and said, "I also want to make it up to your mother. So even if it costs me all my money, I want you to have a luxurious wedding, to make you happy."

Then he took Chris' hand and said, "Come with me."

They went back to the main reception area and he pulled her up to the stage. By this time, all the guests were enjoying the delicious food together and chatting with each other. Some were moving from table to table getting reacquainted with other guests. Edward picked up the microphone, cleared his throat, and then spoke into the mic, "Distinguished guests..."

Rachel panicked a little when she saw Edward go to the stage with Chris. 'What the hell are they going to do now?' She had a bad feeling about this.

She wanted to drag Edward down from the stage as she heard what Edward said. But she just stayed in her chair and dug her nails into it.

"It's not just my wedding today. I have another piece of good news to share with you," Edward said excitedly. "I have been single for so many years but actually... I have a daughter," He announced.


"How could it be possible?" There was a second of complete silence, then gasps could be heard from all sides, then a wave of chatter began.

"It must come as a shock to all of you to hear the news but it is the truth. Actually, I just found it out recently. My daughter is no one else but this lovely girl standing here beside me." Edward was proud of having such a beautiful daughter.

"Many people here today must know her already. We do move around in small social circles so she may be familiar to you. So, yes, this is Chris, my daughter." Edward introduced Chris proudly.

"Does Miss Bai know this?"

"Can she accept her? Did you keep this secret from her before you married her?"
The reporters swarmed towards him onstage like bees and asked him some harsh questions, shoving their microphones and recorders into his face.

Edward was a little embarrassed and he said, "I think it will be more convincing if Rachel can answer those questions herself."

Edward looked around and found Rachel in the crowd. Then he smiled and stretched his hand towards Rachel.

Rachel had to come to the stage with everyone looking and said, "On this matter... Edward has never lied to me, nor kept anything from me."

Rachel gave a smile then looked at Edward with affection and added, "There is no secret between us. He told me immediately as soon as he found out and gave me the choice whether I would still want to be with him or not. He promised that he wouldn't take it against me if I was not OK with it."

"So you don't mind it at all? Are you OK with being Chris' stepmother while she is only a few years younger than you?"

"I don't mind it, really." Rachel shook her head slightly with a smile and said, "I am the luckiest woman to marry Edward and I don't want to lose him. He respects me so I will accept everything about him, even his past. Moreover... Chris and I get along well so at least we can be good friends even if I am not a qualified stepmother." Rachel said it with great disgust, but she concealed it perfectly.

She never expected Chris could be so tactful in making Edward willing to reveal her to the public in such a short time. Edward was satisfied with what Rachel said.

Chris kept an indifferent face.

Edward gave a smile and added, "Today is the most important day of my life. I married the woman I love and I got reunited with my daughter. I am the happiest and luckiest man in the world."

Rachel leaned against his chest and smiled. A reporter asked, "I heard that Chris has just gotten engaged to Mr. Lin and they will be getting married soon. As her father, what do you want to say to them?"

Rachel was so annoyed when this topic was brought up. She felt compelled to throw the reporter out but she couldn't do that.

Edward replied, "Actually we have talked about it just now. I promise that I will make her the most beautiful and the happiest bride in the world when she marries Sam. As for her dowry..."

Edward thought for a moment and added, "I will give all my shares of my company to her as well as cars and apartments to make sure she will have a grand wedding."

Then he continued, "Please tell Sam that if I hear that he doesn't treat my daughter well, I will have reserved a place in hell for him."

"We promise to tell him," the reporters said.

Chris stood on the stage, with her hands over her mouth, unable to move or speak. She didn't want Edward's money, but...

Edward was in such a good mood so he could be a little drunk. After the wedding and when all the guests had left, Rachel stared at him with complaining eyes. Chris cast a glimpse at Edward and said, "I need to leave now, Dad."

"OK." Edward said with a smile, "Remember to come back and visit me often."

"Okay." Chris agreed then turned back and said to Rachel, "Please take care of my father."

"It isn't over yet." Rachel said to Chris in a low voice, "I look forward to the next chapter of this story and what will happen next."

Chris sneered and left together with Autumn. She felt much happier and said to Autumn, "Thank you, Autumn."

"You're welcome." Autumn said with a smile, "But it was really satisfying to see Rachel so helpless."

"Me too." Chris sneered and said to Autumn, "She has fallen into her own trap. She believed that she could get everything she wanted by marrying Edward but I won't let her tricks come true."

"But they are a couple now. Maybe Edward will change his mind if she complains to him too much," Autumn said with worry.

"I will have her expose her true intentions and character one day," Chris promised confidently.

Gary had already seen what happened today when Chris came home and told him her purpose. Gary thought for a long time and sighed, "Fine. At least we can keep part of his fortune in this way. We can't just watch Rachel steal all his money without doing anything."

"I am just worried that you would be angry at me, but now I feel happy because you understand me." Chris didn't tell Gary her intentions before she went to the wedding and now she felt assured that she got his support.

"Silly girl." Gary scolded her in an affectionate tone.

Autumn wanted to say something but was interrupted by a call from Charles. He said, "I'm afraid that I have to stay here for another few days."
