Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 114
Mr. Griffin suddenly turned around and glared at Olivia Cruise. “What kind of place do
think Glamour Pavilion is?”
His cold gaze was like a knife pressed against her aorta, intimidating her. Her pupils trembled slightly as she looked at Mr. Griffin.
Mr. Griffin still had a smile on his face, but it did not seem genuine. “I believe I’ve already been subtle with my words. I hope you learn your lesson, Miss Cruise.”
It was not until Mr. Griffin left that Olivia finally regained her senses.
Everything that had happened today went completely out of control, and everything that she had imagined in her mind had exceeded her expectations.
At first, Olivia thought she would be able to please Old Mr. Smith with the painting she had bought for his birthday. She had spent a lot of money on it. She was confident her gift could overwhelm those brought by others, including Rachel Grey.
However, the broken pocket watch that Rachel brought, in the end, was not only authentic but also exposed her identity as the head of Glamour Pavilion.
On the other hand, the gift that Olivia painstakingly prepared had become a fake!
She went from the object of everyone’s admiration to somebody no one cared about. It was like she fell from the heavens and into hell. She just could not take the humiliation. She had never felt this way her entire life.
And all of this was thanks to Rachel Grey!
Olivia could not understand why every time she wanted to embarrass Rachel, she herself would end up being the one to suffer.
First, it was her career, and now it was her reputation.
This Rachel was her nemesis!
Olivia looked at Rachel leave. Then, Olivia could not take it anymore and chased after Rachel.
On the other side, the members of the Smith family gathered in front of Old Mr. Smith after the guests had left. “Dad, you shouldn’t have given her the company’s shares even if you wanted to compensate her!”
“Then are you going to watch her destroy the Smith family if not?” Old Mr. Smith snorted. “That girl is determined to cut ties with the Smith family now. If she takes revenge, are you sure that she will show us mercy? On what grounds? Your ability to add fuel to the fire? Or Louis Smith’s betrayal?”
Louis Smith’s father, Harrison Smith, pondered for a moment and said slowly, “Are you worried that she might cause trouble if Louis and Olivia Cruise get engaged?”
“She and Louis had been in love for three years. Then she was abandoned at the wedding ceremony. Just this alone is enough to make Louis bear the infamy of being a heartless man. If the news of the engagement between Louis and Olivia Cruise spreads, how do you think this will affect the Smith Group?” Old Mr. Smith stared at Harrison.
Harrison’s face darkened instantly.
Old Mr. Smith glanced at him. “Louis‘ marriage is his own problem, but I only have one thing to say, and that is: we shouldn’t let personal problems affect the company.”
“I understand.” Harrison was aware of the seriousness of this matter. If he did not handle it well, Smith Group might be hurt. The current Smith Group could not withstand any more troubles.
When Old Mr. Smith walked to the door, he suddenly thought of something and turned to look at Harrison. “Jane Smith can’t keep her cool. Let her stay in her room and reflect on her mistakes!”
Harrison did not dare to have any objections and quickly said, “I understand.”
When Old Mr. Smith left, the others surrounded Harrison. “Harrison, what exactly is going on? Didn’t you say that Rachel Grey was a village girl from the countryside?”
“That’s right. I thought she was said to be uncultured and unrefined? But I couldn’t find any faults with the way she carried herself earlier.”
“Most importantly, how did she become the owner of Glamour Pavilion?”
“It’s Glamour Pavilion we’re talking about here. Its worth is immeasurable!”
If they had known that Rachel was so rich, they would not have let Louis break up with her so easily back then. No matter what, they would have made her compensate for all the expenses the Smith family spent on her over the years!
