(Autumn was irritated)
"Oh, now I understand it all and their need to keep everything low-key." Leila sneered and thought that Autumn wanted to keep this baby simply to maintain her strong grip on Charles' heart.
"Yes." Burke sighed and said, "Actually, as a doctor, even I would have strongly suggested her not to keep this baby because of her poor health condition.
Are you her friend? If you see her next time, please persuade her to abort the baby and it's for her own benefit."
"OK, I will do what I can." Leila nodded her head and said to Burke, "Wait, I have another question. If she gets irritated or has another one of her bad mood swings, what will happen?"
"What will happen? God I hope it does not happen. Both she and the baby would be adversely affected." Burke added, "All in all, it's too dangerous for her to be pregnant now. Please tell that to her and try to change her mind."
The doubt in Leila's mind was confirmed. She looked at Burke with narrow eyes and said, "I have to leave now. There is an important thing for me to attend. Thank you for letting me know."
"What? Wait..." Leila left immediately regardless of what Burke said. He didn't even know why she came all the way to the premise.
Leila took a file from the company, then went home and went to Dream Garden finally.
She wondered whether she could enter the house successfully because the last time she had visited, she had been blocked out by Yvonne.
Leila parked the car at the gate and rang the doorbell. Suddenly, she heard a woman's voice.
The people of Zhao family often went to Dream Garden for Autumn since she had fallen sick. Abby had seen Leila before and warned Charles because of her so Leila left a bad impression to her.
"Why are you here? What do you want to do?" Abby inquired her intentions rather impolitely.
"Do we... know each other?" Leila cast a glance at Abby with curiosity.
"You don't know me, but I know you. Just answer what you are being asked directly!" Abby commanded Leila to respond in a tough tone.
"I..." Leila was about to say something but Autumn came out from the house at this moment. Autumn looked at Abby with smile and asked, "Why are you here?"
"Mom made some porridge herself and asked me to deliver it to you." Abby said in a soft tone, "You shouldn't have come out of the house. The wind is too strong and you could catch a cold."
"It doesn't matter." Autumn answered, "I was feeling bored as I have been staying home for so long. You needn't send it next time. You are pregnant and it's too tired to do this. If your husband knows that you always do these for me, he would get worried for you.
"No, he wants me to visit you every day so that I can have someone to talk with." Abby held Autumn's hand and said, "Let's go back to the house."
"Autumn." Seeing that Autumn didn't even cast a glance at her, Leila called her. But Autumn frowned in confusion when Autumn noticed her.
"What have you come here for?" Autumn took a deep breath to calm herself down knowing how harmful it was for her to get angry.
"I... have a file which needs Mr. Lu's signature. Is he at home?" Leila cautiously walked up towards Autumn.
Leila wore a sweater with low collar, showing her shiny diamond necklace on purpose. Autumn was shocked when she saw this necklace, thinking how she could afford something like that.
Knowing that her plan was working, Leila let out a smirk.
"Autumn?" Seeing Autumn go silent, Leila got closer to her to ensure that she could see that necklace clearly.
"What are you doing?!" Abby pushed Leila away and said to her, "I warn you not to come here again. Charles doesn't need to deal with his work at home. You can solve the problem when he is in the company."
"This file is really urgent and Mr. Lu hasn't come to the company to work since Autumn got sick, so I... had no choice but come here to find him." Leila lied to Abby with a helpless expression.
Autumn pushed Abby aside and walked up towards Leila. Leila pretended an expression of fear, asking Autumn, "Are you OK?"
"Where did... this come from?" Autumn pointed at the necklace.
She knew this necklace because it was the same as the one Charles brought back from Europe during the business trip.
She still remembered that Leila followed Charles that time.
Autumn's mind was filled with many horrible doubts and Abby found that Autumn was about to lose her calmness so she supported Autumn immediately and said, "Calm down, Autumn. Think about the baby in your womb."
She shouted at Leila while persuading Autumn, "Get out of here right now!" "What happened to you, Autumn?" Leila didn't listen to Abby's words, instead, she stayed put and tried to get Autumn irritated so that she would miscarry the baby.
So she pretended that she worried about Autumn.
"What happened?" Charles just got back after buying some fruits for Autumn and saw Autumn in distress. He threw all the fruits from his hands and ran to Autumn to hold her.
Without noticing Leila, he asked Abby, "What happened to Autumn?"
"Your secretary can tell you everything," Abby said with anger.
Autumn hugged her head with hands while Charles cast a glimpse at Leila and realized what happened immediately.
He hugged Autumn and consoled her in a soft tone, "Calm down, Autumn. Tell me whether you were irritated by Leila's necklace or not."
"Necklace, yes! It's the necklace!" Autumn grasped Charles' collar tightly and asked him, "Why does she have the same necklace as the one you bought me?"
"Calm down. Be careful and think about our baby." Autumn calmed herself gradually with the help of Charles' words. He stood up and asked Leila, "How did you get the necklace?"
Leila was a little amazed and then she answered, "I bought it for myself when I was on the business trip with you."
"Why did you choose the same necklace as the one I bought and wore it to come see Autumn? What were your intentions?" Charles asked her in a tough tone.
"Autumn, now you can see that Charles has nothing to do with that necklace. It's not like what you think." Abby consoled Autumn, "Let's go back to the house."
Abby took Autumn back to the room and cast a glance at Leila with anger, then she warned Charles, "If you don't deal with this trouble today, someday this woman could destroy Autumn."
Leila was frightened. When Abby and Autumn went back, she explained for herself to Charles, "Mr. Lu, I didn't do that on purpose. I bought this necklace just because it was beautiful. I didn't expect that Autumn could be so sensitive..."
Leila couldn't help crying and added, "I promise that I had no bad intentions for her. Autumn treats me well so... why would I possibly try to hurt her?"
