“Rachel, it’s all my fault. I’m willing to shoulder all the responsibility by myself. It has nothing to do with Olivia.” Louis held Olivia in his arms lovingly.
Olivia looked at Louis with teary eyes and said, “No, Louis. That is not true. It’s all my fault. I couldn’t control my feelings. It’s all my fault. It has nothing to do with you…”
Rachel looked at Olivia with a fake smile. “Knock it off. I can recite your words backward. Please come up with other lines. You’ve bent my ears.”
The crowd burst out laughing after hearing that.
Olivia’s eyes hardened slightly, and her face was burning with embarrassment and anger.
“Rachel, I sincerely apologize to you. I’ll do anything if you’re willing to forgive me,” Louis said.
Rachel pursed her lips. There was a glint of mockery in her eyes. “Why should I forgive you just because you apologize sincerely? We’re all adults. We should pay the price for our mistakes. Isn’t that fair?
“You two hook up with each other and betray me. So, I should be a bigger person and say it’s fine and continue with my life after you apologize? I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. I’ll never be a bigger person.”
In other words, she wanted to humiliate Olivia and the Smith family.
Even though Rachel’s words were harsh and cruel but no one there blamed her for being cold–blooded.
After all, they were stupid bystanders. They were polite enough not to clap and cheer when Rachel fell out with the Smith family,
Moreover, Louis and Olivia had done a shameless thing. They betrayed Rachel first. Even if their reputations were destroyed, they deserved it.
“I’m really sorry for ruining your engagement party.”
Although Rachel said that, she didn’t look apologetic at all. Instead, there was a hint of derision in her voice. “By the way, I wish the two of you a happy marriage and eternal harmony.”
With that, she walked away without looking back.
Suddenly, Old Mr. Smith walked over slowly with his son’s help. “I know you hate Louis, but you can’t force a relationship. He risked his life to fight off the bad guys and saved you before. Why can’t you forgive him because of that?”
Rachel narrowed her eyes, which gleamed with an icy cold light.
She did not expect that Old Mr. Smith would still want to make her feel that she was indebted to them.
The old man met her cold gaze and inexplicably felt his face burning. He said diffidently, “Even if Louis has done you wrong, you can’t erase everything during the three years you’ve been together…”
Mrs. Smith quickly chimed in, “That’s right. We all make mistakes. Why can’t you give him a second chance? You’ve stayed with us for three years, and we’ve never mistreated you. Why can’t you let bygones be bygones?”
“Let bygones be bygones?” Rachel suddenly smiled. There was a terrifying gleam in her eyes. “Don’t you think it is too hypocritical? I’m vindictive and small–minded. I like it when the table is turned and I enjoy seeing evil people get the punishments they deserve. Only this will make me happy.
“Besides, I’ve been merciful enough to you today. Don’t push your luck.”
After speaking, she walked towards the door.
