Episode 91

(Autumn water broke)

Autumn just hold on to that thought! "Wait!" Leila called out to Autumn anxiously. She knew that if Autumn went back and confronted Charles about it, all her lies would be unveiled.    

 "While you were in the hospital, Charles conducted your grandma's funeral. Why didn't he tell you? Don't you realize anything different?" she asked aggressively, trying desperately to drive a wedge between Autumn and Charles.   

  "He kept the truth from you because he's afraid something might happen to the babies. He'll break up with you any minute after you give birth. Don't you see it clearly?" The truth was that Autumn had already lost her calm the moment she heard about Emily's death. She was just holding herself together during the argument with Leila.     

Unwilling to stay a moment longer and listen to her harp on, Autumn flurried out of the cafe. At the same time, Leila was scared out of her wits just thinking about what Autumn was going to do.   

She had been mentally calculating about it and realized she could not fall short at the eleventh hour.     

She called Ferry in a hurry. It was all Ferry's idea to keep her in hiding all these days, and of course it was also his job to fix the problem she now encountered.  

   The call was soon went through and she heard Ferry's voice from the other side, "How's it going?"    

"Ferry, you told me the plan was full proof and it was going to work out this time,"  said Leila anxiously. "But the truth is that Autumn didn't have the slightest emotional reaction to what I just told her. Now she is going to confront Charles. If they really meet, won't all the work and effort I've invested all go down the drain?" she questioned Ferry sternly. 

  "What's the rush? Let things unfold the way they have to and then we will decide what to do." A snarl came over the phone from Ferry. "You've done what you're supposed to do. Now go and wait where I told you. I'll handle the rest."    

"But..." Leila had more to say, but Ferry had already ended the call.     

Once Autumn came out of the shop, she felt heavy tension and sharp pains building in her abdomen. Despite the pain, she looked around for Brent for a long time.   

  "What's wrong, Mrs. Lu?" Seeing her terribly pale face, Brent hurried to help her into the car. "What happened?" he asked sincerely with concern.    

 "Nothing, everything is fine,"  Autumn answered weakly, covering her abdomen with her hands. "Brent, just take me straight to Shining Company,"  she added.    

 She was eager to see Charles and figured out if what Leila said was true. On the way, Brent's cell phone rang all of a sudden. At the sight of the caller ID, Brent grew nervous. He hesitated and let it ring for a long time, but finally he received the call.   

"What do you want from me?" Brent screeched in a low voice, as his face turned pale.    

 Autumn was in the back seat, holding her belly. Brent kept an eye on her as he answered the phone and spoke in hushed tones. Since it was Ferry who called him, he could never let Autumn find out.     

Ferry was smuggled back in the city the other day. In case Andy found out about his return, he never went to the hotel.     "Brent, I've contacted you twice, and I think I've made myself quite clear." 

Ferry's voice drifted into Brent's ear over the phone, making Brent scared. "You took my money. Now it's time for you to do the work you signed up for,"  he demanded.   

"No, I quit. I refuse to work for you,"  Brent resolutely refused, looking at Autumn's miserable expression in the rear-view mirror. If it hadn't been for Autumn, he might have carried out the task. He had never been a kind or considerate man, but he could not hurt a pregnant woman.    

 "Don't worry. I'll pay you back the money. Give me some time." Without any emotions, Brent replied, "I'm hanging up now."    

Just as Brent was about to hang up, Ferry sneered and went ahead, "Well, Brent, now that I know you don't want the money. What about your mother's life then? I guess you still care about her."    

Brent started to gasp as he struggled to breathe with fear at Ferry's threat. "What the hell do you want?" he cried out in desperation.     

"If the money is not enough, I can give you more until you're content. But..." 

Ferry laughed grimly, and continued, "Think about your mother, how much she has done for you? Do you really have the heart to make her suffer in her old age, or even lose her life because of you?" 

 "Are you threatening me?" Brent frowned. In the recent past, whenever they met Ferry beat him black and blue. Brent knew very well that if he did not follow Ferry's instructions, Ferry had the spine to do whatever necessary to punish him.     

"How could I?" Ferry argued, but his tone was still threatening. "I just want you to bring Autumn here and I'll handle everything after that. It's an easy task and you can earn more than a million dollars from it. It's a good deal, just think about your mother and accept it."    

Brent hesitated, between the safety of his mother and harming a pregnant woman who had been nothing but kind to him and his mother. He didn't know what to choose.   

  While he was talking on the phone, Autumn, who was sitting in the back seat, suddenly felt the warm water coming out of her. She immediately realized that her water broke. At this point, she didn't want to pursue any other matter but to head straight to the hospital. All she could think about was giving birth to her two babies safely. 

"Brent listen to me, I... I think I'm in labor. Take me to the hospital immediately,"  she told Brent with a sense of urgency.   

"Uh? What did you just say?" Brent, who was still on the phone, was gripped with panic after he heard Autumn. "Okay, I'll rush you to the hospital right away."   

 Hearing what Brent just said to Autumn, Ferry got furious and burst out, "Brent, you've only got ten minutes to think this through. My people are at the gate of Dream Garden. Money and your mother's life or obeying my instructions, your choice."    

With that, Ferry ended the phone call, leaving Brent in a fix.     

Brent then called Ferry again, but Ferry's phone had been turned off.   

He took a glance at Autumn, who was moaning and breathing heavily. At that moment, they came to a crossroads, and turning left would take them to the hospital and right was to the place where Ferry had asked him to bring Autumn. With a selfish thought, Brent turned right.     

"Brent, where are you taking me? This is not the way to the hospital." Realizing that they were going in the wrong direction, Autumn knew something terrible was going to happen. She pulled her phone out of her bag, and dialed Anthony's number after a minute's hesitation. "This is not the way to the hospital. Where are you taking me?" she asked Brent again as she was struck with fear.     

Anthony picked up call, but before he could speak, he heard Autumn talking to someone else. It made him feel strange when he heard what Autumn was saying. 

He remained silent and listened carefully to what was said on the phone. He heard Autumn anxiously repeatedly ask someone, "Tell me, where are you taking me..."  

Autumn sounded so weak that it got him all worried and concerned. He rushed out of the office, ignoring the patients waiting to see him. Without hanging up, Anthony listened carefully to Autumn. 

Fortunately, Autumn was very clever that she gave him many tips between her words. After passing through many red lights, he finally found Autumn's car.
