(An ace)

Leila remained more than willing and keen to evolve his scheme against Autumn. Besides, Yvonne would be an ace, at the right time, to win the game. 

    "We will arrange it all for you." Ferry's underlings withdrew, and then Ferry was relieved to reflect for a moment.    

 Upon learning about Nancy's betrayal and Autumn's fake miscarriage, Ferry felt almost crippled and powerless to reverse the situation, at that moment. He knew he had to come up with something soon.     

"Andy, how could you spare him like this? I don't understand." Charles expressed his displeasure and anger to Andy after leaving the nightclub. "He should be cruelly punished for harming Autumn and making her suffer as much as she did!"    

"It is enough!" Andy looked at Charles helplessly. After getting into the car with Charles he retrospected about the entire incident. "Your dissatisfaction and anger are perfectly understandable, but I, after considering my family bliss, could not get myself to do anything desperate as I did before. All I can do is to remove Ferry from Y City to prevent him from harming Autumn again. That should help the situation."  

Andy just would not do anything extreme at the risk of bothering his family. He hoped Charles could show maturity and understand the other side of the story. 

Things were not always black and white.   
  "Okay, I understand your reasons and thank you for trying your best." Charles nodded subtly to indicate his understanding, as Autumn was now safe from any attack. This was all he hoped for.     

Meanwhile, in the ward, Autumn had been lying on the bed for quite a long time. Anthony was growing more anxious and impatient with every passing minute to learn the truth. "I think it is time that you are supposed to tell me what was going on."  

"Nothing special. Believe me. I was just fooling someone here."  Autumn spoke to Anthony in a playful yet humorous tone, "I have started to doubt your professional skills, as even a single patient did not visit you during my long stay here. A rather curious observation..."    

Anthony felt agitated upon hearing that.     
Anthony was feeling like an idiot who was overenthusiastic to cure Autumn, who, at that moment, was a perfectly fine pregnant woman. It hurt his ego even to admit that in his mind.     

Anthony then expressed his displeasure to Autumn after she raised her pertinent doubt. "Give me the benefit of the doubt, even if a patient wanted my consultation and was waiting for me, I am sure he or she was scared away by the sensational incident which just occurred here." 

 Autumn realized that Anthony's story did hold water.     

"Autumn, how much longer do you want to stay here?" Anthony was quite cooperative with Autumn in putting up the entire play to meet Autumn's motives, even though Autumn had not told him of what all was going on.    

 But now Autumn had been there for an unreasonably prolonged period.     

"Just a little more time, but less than what was expected..." Autumn drew her watch instinctively. 'Over two hours have passed since Charles's departure. My plan will pay off if Brent will return safe and sound,' Autumn thought to herself nervously.     

"I am feeling rather hungry now," Autumn told Anthony whimsically.     

Anthony managed to respond to Autumn's request, "It is amazing for you to be able to enjoy dinner here."  

Anthony drew out a well packed box from a stand and addressed Autumn, "This is the meal I got packed from home. I can heat it for you."    

"Thank you for this gesture. I would love that," Autumn replied almost immediately.    

 Anthony presented the heated food before Autumn. "Please do enjoy it."  

  "It is indeed amazing. Thank you again!" Autumn marveled at the little box of delicacies which were colorfully and tastefully prepared by Anthony.    

 "So after all Craig does not need to worry about you, and it seems like you can look after yourself quite well indeed."  Autumn told Anthony in a positively impressed tone.    

 Autumn thought to herself and found that it would be nothing short than unnecessary to introduce him to a prospective girl who was helpful to to Anthony, as he would be more attentive towards the girl he loved.   

Instead, Autumn should introduce Anthony to a lazy girl. This thought almost made her giggle.     

"Your future girlfriend will surely consider it a blessing to be offered with your homemade meals. I mean I could not fault with anything you have prepared. It looks like a fancy hotel dish but tastes just like home nutritious food." Autumn found the preparation was more delicious than it appeared.     

"Please do enjoy your dinner. No more unnecessary chatter." Anthony handled Autumn with love and care. He then brought her a a cup of hot milk.    

 Autumn could not help but compliment Anthony, "If not for marriage with Charles, I would have happily chosen you as my loving husband to justify my reputation."    

Anthony did not express it, but he did feel the same way about Autumn. 'Had I met with Autumn prior to Charles, we would have been happy together for all of our lives.' Anthony thought to himself.

   "Oh what to do with me was too late, and you are unavailable now." Anthony reciprocated to her remark pleasantly yet playfully. They were on cordial terms considering their family friendship.   

  Moreover, Anthony was paid more attention towards the girl he fancied as even she thought he was befitted as a dutiful husband.    

 "Autumn..." As they whiled away their time, Charles returned, only to unexpectedly find Autumn eating propping up from the bed as she finished eating something, and he then expressed his concern, "Are you feeling fine?"  

  "You can rest assured, as I can take charge of Autumn." Anthony reassured Charles, "Charles, you would better escort your naughty wife back home now. It has been quite a while."  

"I am sorry to have bother you again!" Charles apologized with a smile as he went on, "I will treat you later for this favor."   

 "Please just head home now, and be careful on the way." Anthony replied gently in a soft tone.    

 After Autumn and Charles's departure, Anthony gazed at the leftover food with growing uneasiness. It was almost like he missed her presence.     

"Charles, how is it going?  Has Brent recovered?" Autumn asked anxiously in the car, to ascertain if Brent had survived the misfortune.     

Charles looked at Autumn helplessly. "Autumn, you are too kind-hearted to ignore your own affairs like this."    

'Autumn should have valued and prioritized her own problems over Nancy's burden,' Charles thought to himself.   

"I am fine now, trust me." Autumn smiled and explained her intentions to Charles, "Brent, although unworthy of my efforts, is Nancy's only son. If something untoward happens to Brent, Nancy will be unbearably hurt. After all as a mother all she ever sought was his welfare despite their mangled relations. With that said, we should try our best to save Brent."    

"You need not worry about Brent any further, as he escaped from this dire misfortune." Charles replied with great composure, "Nancy informed over a call that Brent escaped from the kidnapping even though he was badly wounded. 

Brent, I suppose, will soon be better after recuperation."
