Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 194
All the guests who attended the Smith Group’s anniversary celebration included not only the company’s higher–ups, but also the guests who had attended Louis‘ wedding.
After those present saw Rachel’s face clearly, they naturally answered, “She is Ms. Grey, who used to be from the project department of the Smith Group.”
“The ‘Horale‘ hotel developed by Smith Group was single–handedly planned by her.”
“Could she be the legendary person who saved the Smith Group from ruin?”
“That’s right, it’s her!”
“Without her, there wouldn’t be the Smith family of today.”
Upon hearing the guests‘ approval of Rachel, the smile on Louis‘ face gradually turned cold.
Every sentence was filled with praise for Rachel. It was especially piercing to his ears.
Even though Rachel had already left the Smith Group, in everyone’s eyes, no matter how hard he tried, he could not shake off Rachel’s halo.
Without Rachel, how could there be the Smith family of today…
His dark eyes were fixed on Rachel in the crowd. The hand holding the wine glass tightened, and the veins on the back of his hand were faintly visible.
He wanted to see if the Smith family could not do without Rachel, or if Rachel co not do without the Smith family!
Old Mr. Smith brought Rachel to a quiet place. “Rae–Rae, I know you hate me. I don’t ask you to forgive me, but I hope you can understand
“The Smith family has been through hardships all these years. I can’t just watch as the hard work of generations of the Smith family is in tatters. just like that. In terms of relationships, Louis has let you down first. Grandpa is willing to transfer all the shares under his name to you as compensation.”
The corners of Rachel’s mouth curled up into a faint smile, but her eyes were terrifyingly cold. “I made it very clear on the phone previously I’m indebted to you for taking care of me for three years in the Smith family. I’ll agree to one request of yours, but after this request, there’s no longer any relationship between us.”
“I’m sorry. I won’t forgive anyone in the Smith family, nor will I understand your painstaking efforts.”
For Rachel, kindness was kindness, and faults were faults. Since they did not owe each other anything, any further pestering would only be a waste of energy.
Mrs. Smith looked at Rachel’s arrogant attitude and could not help but frown. “Miss Grey, aren’t you being too casual with your words? You just glossed over everything that happened in the Smith family over the three years!”
“Or else?” Rachel raised her eyebrows and glanced at her coldly. “What is your plan, Mrs. Smith?”
At first, Mrs. Smith was hesitating about what to say, but since Rachel had said this, it was exactly what she wanted.
“We’ve provided for your needs all these years with the Smith family. However, on account of you giving advice to the company, we can choose not to pursue the matter.”
Hearing Mrs. Smith’s shameless words, Rachel’s eyes could not help but be filled with scorn.
The corners of her lips curled into a meaningful smile. She lowered her eyes to look at the wine glass in her hand and patiently waited for Mrs. Smith to continue.
“Louis and Olivia were originally childhood sweethearts. It’s just that there was a misunderstanding back then, so they broke off contact. As for you…” Mrs. Smith initially wanted to say ‘meddler, but she was afraid that Rachel would fly into a rage out of humiliation from being exposed.
She paused for a moment and deliberated over her words before continuing. “All these years, Louis has never abandoned you. Instead, he insisted on marrying you despite his family background. There was an accident at the wedding ceremony. His actions were indeed a little too rash, but he never thought of abandoning you. You were the one who suggested breaking up.”
“No matter what, there are many guests at the wedding ceremony. As the person involved, you have to come out and give everyone an
