Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 196
Everyone was very familiar with the name Rachel Grey.
She had single–handedly saved the Smith Group and put the Smith Group on the right track. In the following three years, she had relied on one swift decision after another to help the Smith Group escape the siege and become the current hot upstart of Seaxas.
“So she’s Rachel Grey.”
“If it weren’t for her all these years, would the Smith Group have been able to achieve its current glory?”
“I heard that she and Mr. Smith of the Smith Group were in love, but I clearly saw Mr. Smith and Miss Cruise just now…”
“What do you mean by love! It’s just that the Smith Group took a fancy to Rachel’s competence and used it to win people’s hearts! Now that their status is secured, they kicked her out!”
“At the wedding ceremony back then, he left her at the scene and didn’t bother about her. The scene was simply too ugly!”
“Wow, I didn’t expect the Smith family to be so ungrateful!”
Soon, the word ‘ungrateful‘ spread throughout the entire banquet hall.
Everyone praised Rachel, applauded her ability and methods, and admired her boldness.
However, behind every praise, it was as if they were mocking Louis‘ incompetence.
Not only did Mrs. Smith’s face turn red and pale from anger. Even Old Mr. Smith could not maintain his composure.
Louis’s handsome face was stone–cold as he stared menacingly at Rachel, who was standing on the stage.
He knew that Rachel hated him, but it was the Smith Group’s anniversary celebration that day. He would never allow Rachel to smear the Smith family’s reputation at this critical moment!
He quickly walked forward and prepared to pull Rachel off the stage.
But before he could take a step forward, a hand suddenly grabbed his
He stopped in his tracks and turned to look at Mrs. Smith.
I have my own plans,” Mrs. Smith interrupted him. Her eyes flashed with a meaningful smile as she looked at Rachel, who was standing on the stage.
Rachel had stayed in the Smith family for three years. She knew very well how arrogant Rachel was. She also knew that she was a rebel. How could such a person be willingly ordered around by others? Therefore, in order to deal with Rachel, she had other arrangements.
At this moment, someone in the crowd suddenly said, “Since ancient times, only those who have the three books and six rituals are legitimate wives. She doesn’t even have the most basic rules. What kind of fiancée is she? Moreover, I heard that this Miss Grey mysteriously disappeared before she got married. In order to protect her reputation, the Smith family blocked the news. It can be considered as doing her a great favor!” Hearing this, everyone’s expressions changed unpredictably.
In a moment, the looks they gave Rachel were slowly stained with disdain and disgust.
“In that case, she doesn’t know how to appreciate favors!”
“I thought that she came from a poor background, but she’s a pure lady after all. I didn’t expect her to be so terrible.”
“From the looks of it, she let down Mr. Smith’s good intentions first.”
Rachel stood quietly on the stage. Her tall and slender posture revealed her innate arrogance.
She stared intently at the person hiding in the crowd, and there was an imperceptible hostility in her gaze.
Very few people knew about her kidnapping.
This was an ugly scar that she had buried in her heart. Louis had vowed to her that he would never let anyone know.
Later, Jane used this to mock her, Mrs. Smith used it as a bargaining chip,
and now, it had become a tool for the Smith family to guide public opinion.
It turned out that the man she once trusted was actually so
She turned to look at Louis, who was standing at the side. A trace of scorn flashed across her eyes. “Is this what you promised me?”
