(An apology)

"Okay." Charles nodded at Andy and went to Autumn. He gave her a pat on the shoulder and whispered, "Autumn, wake up. Let's go home."

When Autumn opened her eyes, Charles' face was onto hers. She asked as she rubbed her sleepy eyes, "Have you finished your conversation?"

"Yes. Let's go home," Charles said. He was used to ignoring his wife as long as he threw himself into his work. For this, he felt a sense of guilt.

Charles escorted Autumn into the car. When they left, Autumn was wide awake. Charles noticed that Autumn was staring blankly in the passenger seat and he apologized, "Were you bored just now? I'm so sorry about that."

"Sorry for what?" It took quite a while for Autumn to get back into the moment.

Her mind had been adrift somewhere far away. When she realized why Charles made an apology, she replied with a smile, "It's okay. You were talking about business. I couldn't join in, so yes, I felt kind of bored."

"Work usually eats up all my attention. If I ignore something, especially you, please remind me." Charles' apology was sincere.

"It is okay." Autumn said gently.

It was odd that she always got distracted. Her good mood was easily spoiled. Even small matters affected her significantly.

As soon as they arrived home, Nancy came forward and took their coats and bags. "Mr. Lu, Mrs. Lu, have you had supper? Do you want some snacks or maybe desert?" Nancy asked eagerly.

"No, thank you, Nancy." Charles replied, "We are okay. You can go to bed."

"What about Mrs. Lu?" Nancy turned her gaze to Autumn. She knew Autumn's habit of having a glass of milk before bedtime. Autumn was about to reply, but Nancy said, "Your milk is ready. Do you want to have it now?"

"Yes." Autumn agreed with a nod. After finishing the milk Nancy brought from the kitchen, she said, "Thanks Nancy, have an early night."

Nancyy wasn't friendly to Autumn. But she treated Autumn with civil respect. It was enough for Autumn. Autumn had intended to wait for Charles. After his shower, maybe they could have a talk.

Sometimes things didn't work out the way you thought they would. However, as soon as her head touched the pillow, she drifted off to sleep.

Never did she know there was something wrong with her body at that time. After taking a quick bath, Charles was disappointed to find Autumn already asleep. He took off her clothes with a bitter smile and cleaned her up before he tucked her in.

The next day, as soon as Autumn arrived at the Cloud Advertising Company, she found all the girls huddled over something behind the door of the conference room. It seemed as if they were ogling at some precious treasure. She asked in surprise, "What are you all looking at?"

"Manager Ye, finally, you are here." One of the girls walked to Autumn and complained, "Manager Ye, you are married. Why didn't you introduce this handsome man to us? That's so unkind."
It was just a joke. However, Autumn was completely at a loss. She asked the girls in front, "What are you talking about? What handsome man?"

"Manager Ye, when we arrived for work today, we saw him standing beside the door. He said he was your friend and came here looking for you. So we invited him inside to wait in the conference room."

Autumn racked her brains with her brows wrinkled and couldn't think of who he was.

It was impolite to keep the guest waiting whoever it was. She just never thought that it would be Roger. Never did she want to become associated with him.

And now, she had no idea why he came.
Her employees couldn't take their eyes off the handsome Roger. They were astonished at his outstanding appearance, "Oh my god! He is so handsome! How handsome he is!"

"What are you doing? Don't you have work to do?" The moment Isla entered the company, she was not pleased to see the unprofessional conduct of the staff.

As she passed the conference room, she asked frowning, "Why is he here?"

"I don't know." Autumn shrugged. She mulled over Roger's motive, 'Is it possible that he is coming to ask for justice?' There was no time for Autumn to tell Isla about what happened the day before.

"I will deal with him." Isla said as she pushed the door open. When Roger saw Autumn standing beside the door, he walked to her saying excitedly, "Here you are finally. I have been waiting for you for quite a long time."

"What are you doing here?" Isla stood in between Autumn and Roger because she had a feminine instinct that Roger might hurt Autumn.

She thought, 'We are in our company. No matter what he wants to do, we will act accordingly. We won't suffer any liabilities.

"I am here …" Roger got close to them as he spoke. Isla took one step back and yelled out, "Hey, hey, hey! No need to get too close."

"I mean no harm. I'm here to say I'm sorry." Roger said guiltily, pretending to look sincere.

"Sorry? What are you sorry for?" Isla looked at him with a scowl.

"Isla, it's okay." Autumn pulled Isla away and asked Roger in front of her, "Your name is Roger, isn't it? I don't care about why you came here. It doesn't matter whether you want to apologize or make trouble. Let me remind you, we are strangers. Get out of my company now. If you don't want to get in trouble, you'd better do as I say."

For Autumn, Roger was nothing but a complete stranger. She didn't care one bit about him.

Yesterday she was offended and hurt. It was useless to make an apology. After all, an apology wouldn't fix what had already been damaged.

She could forget about him on condition that her life returned to normal.

"Miss Ye, I am serious. I owe you an apology. Please give me a chance to say it." Roger insisted. He had to try his best to lure Autumn so as to get the role Rachel promised.

"You seem to not have heard it. Autumn said that she didn't need your apology. Didn't you understand what she said?"

Isla retorted. A shameless person like Roger was really annoying.

Roger didn't give up easily. If he couldn't get close to Autumn, it would be impossible for him to win her heart. Even though Isla and Autumn were being difficult, he wouldn't surrender easily.

"Miss Ye, I …" Roger reached out to Autumn's hands but he was blocked by Isla. She stared at Roger up and down. "If you don't leave now, I will call the guards." Her eyes were reduced to slits.

Isla was smart. She knew Roger's weakness. As a promising actor, his career would be tainted if his shameful behavior was caught on camera.

As soon as he heard that Isla would call the guards, he backed down and made no further advances. Before he left, he said, "Miss Ye, I know you are suspicious of my intentions. But I am here to say I am sorry. You will soon see how sincere I am."

It took quite a long time to drive Roger away. When things got settled, Isla asked, "Autumn, what happened? Why did he come here?"
