(We need a talk)

At this point, one thing was certain and it was that Simon would divorce Wendy now that the vile event which occurred twenty years ago had been disclosed to the public. Wendy's true colors were finally exposed.

"After all these years, you finally remembered that I am your son? Wow, this is unbelievable," Aron said sarcastically. People often recalled their beautiful memories as they got older, just as Simon was right now. However, Aron was no where near appreciating this sudden kindness.

"The year Wendy kicked me out of the house, it was you who helped her. Have you forgotten that day? But I have not. Why did you not treat me like your son then? It is too late for you to repent now. The harm you caused then is simply irreversible just like time itself," Aron said in a cold and resolute tone.

"I..." Simon was now unable to utter a single word as Aron's harsh words reminded him of the cold reality. The damage was irreparable.

He felt ashamed yet guilty as he recalled how he treated Aron in the past. Simon drove Aron out of the house as Wendy's statement was enough to convince him. He did not even try to figure out the truth.

Simon also hoped that Aron would not disturb his new life with Wendy but at that time Aron was just a walking and talking reminder of his dead wife, Aron's mother. So it was easy for Simon to turn a blind eye towards Aron as Wendy made a fuss over nothing.

Simon thought that he was still young and someday he could have another son with Wendy.

However, even after being married to Wendy for several years, they only had a daughter.

Now that he was getting elder, and was seeing Wendy's dark side, he remembered and missed his son.

"Aron, it is all my fault. I am so sorry. I truly regret what I did to you in the past and no words could ever be enough to express the guilt I feel," Simon said as he sighed.

He paused for a moment to compose himself before going on, "Aron, I know you must hate me for the way I treated you. But I am determined to get a divorce with Wendy. Could you please forgive me? I will wait for you to visit me at home after you think this through with a calm mind."

Simon ended the call soon after he finished the sentence while Aron remained silent on the entire ride to Isla's house. After she got out of the car, Isla came around and knocked on his side of the car as Aron rolled down the window.

"Aron, I know you still care about your father and I also understand why you just can't forgive him that in such a short span. But Aron, look at it this way, he is your father who is getting older and you don't have many days left with him. Now that he is trying to make amends, don't concentrate on what he did in the past, do away with the hate and try to get to know him. If you want I will come with you when you do decide to meet him."

"Okay. Please don't worry about me. I will be just fine." Aron then smiled as he continued, "It is quite chilly outside. Rush back inside. I will see you tomorrow, love."

Meanwhile, after disconnecting the call, Simon slouched down on the sofa as he recalled the things that happened twenty years ago. He got very furious just at the thought of it. He would have definitely not done those horrible things to Aron if it weren't for Wendy who wedged a bone between them.

"Simon, I want to have a talk with you," said Wendy, who walked over suddenly almost surprising him. Wendy and Yvonne did not go out since they came from Autumn's birthday party. Wendy had had a quarrel with Simon last night.

Simon didn't sleep with her after the argument and instead on sleeping alone in his sanctum.

A day had passed, but the news cycle did not stop making rounds. Most people began to vituperate Wendy and even the newspaper were full of negative articles about her, which not only fed the public's anger, but also got Wendy frustrated. She forced herself to calm down and decided to talk to Simon. She knew the most important thing to do was to regain Simon's trust.

"Okay, I also have something that I need to discuss with you," Simon replied in a calm yet indifferent tone.

He now realized that he had no other emotions towards Wendy except hatred almost like they had no relation.

As she stared at Simon's cold expression, she had a gut feeling that things were going to get worse. Despite having such a strong feeling welling up in her heart, she still tried her best to remain calm, and look at Simon peacefully. "Well, why don't we start with what you have to say?" Wendy said. Instead of going ahead with what he had to say, Simon poured himself a glass of tea and said, "No, you go first."

He was eager to see what tricks Wendy was going to play this time.

"I..." Wendy choked on her tears as she found it hard to speak. Wendy stammered as she tried again but failed.

With her head lowered slightly, her tears started to trickle down her cheeks all of a sudden which shocked Simon. He suddenly was reminded of all the times in the past when he was mislead and manipulated by her tears.

In the past, he couldn't bear the sight of her crying so miserably, so he would promise her anything as long as she would stop crying. But things were completely different now, he saw through her manipulative attempts.

No matter how hard she cried, he maintained an indifferent attitude. In fact, Simon was determined not to show any mercy on her, so he just quietly looked at her in amusement.

Wendy cried for a quite long while but Simon just would not console her. She then realized that he was completely annoyed this time, so she had to come up with some alternative plan to make him stay.

Slowly, she looked up at him, as her eyes glistened with tears. "Simon, you must be very angry now?

I know that I have really pushed things very far this time, so I can understand what you must be feeling," said Wendy in a guilty tone. "I was just very angry with Autumn. After all she is my daughter but even then she stole Yvonne's husband.

And now after all that we have done for her, she tried to break all relations with me," Wendy said as she continued to sob. "I am so sorry. I know I was wrong. Please forgive me. I will never act in such a manner ever again. I promise I will take care of my behavior."

At the thought of Yvonne, Simon furrowed his eyebrows. Yvonne was brought up by Wendy all these years as Simon was busy with work. However, it was too late to intervene when he found out that his only daughter had turned out just like her mother who was selfish and capricious. She was entitled and would go to any length to get what she wanted. So Simon also felt disappointed for Yvonne. He felt like she had let him down.

"Simon..." Wendy moved closer to Simon as she realized that he remained silent through her monologue and was not moved by her words. "We have been married for so many years and I am sure you know my temperament very well. I love you and I care about our family so much. I admit I made a mistake this time and took things very far. But do you think this is such a big sin? Please forgive me the last time. I will never act like this not even in my wildest dreams," she said in a shaky voice.

She reached out her hands, and tried to hold his. However, Simon just shook off her hands and said in a harsh tone," Don't toy with me."

Wendy was hurt and offended by his sudden cold behavior. After a long time, she again addressed Simon, "I know you are mad at me now. But I just wanted to get even with Autumn. I really didn't expect Aron to be there. He even helped Autumn speak up to me like that. How could I not get angry? Simon, you must understand that it takes two to tango.

You cannot just blame me and hold me accountable for the debacle," Wendy said with a pitiful look.

"You just said that you went to get even with Autumn? Are you serious or is this just a joke?" After saying this, Simon let out a sneer.

"Of course I am serious. She is my daughter who I raised and took care of. What made me so furious was that I told her to get married to Charles temporarily. However, once they got married she was unwilling to leave him. Shouldn't I teach her a lesson for her shameless behavior?" Just recalling all of this, Wendy got more irritated. "If it weren't for Autumn, things would not have gotten so bad."

"That's enough! Don't always try to blame others," Simon interrupted her impatiently. "Autumn lived with our family for no more than a month. Do you really need me to remind you how you always treated her earlier?"

Wendy soon turned red out of embarrassment as she heard Simon speak out. He was right. Wendy never cared about Autumn and always ill-treated her. She would ask Autumn to do all the cleaning at home even though she was just a young kid. Moreover, Wendy also turned a deaf ear to Autumn every time Yvonne bullied her.

It was not Wendy who brought up Autumn. In fact it was the other way around, and it was Autumn who always took care of Wendy, Gu family and their lives.

But now Wendy tried to take credit as she said it was her who raised Autumn up. What a shameless and vicious woman! It was ridiculous for her to say something like this after all that girl went through on her account.

"So what?" After catching a glimpse of Simon, Wendy went on to add, "I am her biological mother at the end of the day. I gave her life and brought her into this world, so she had an obligation to support and obey me. Why would she even consider breaking ties with me?"
