Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 216 Touched By His Words
“Rae–Rae, let’s get married.”
There was no smooth talk or pledge of undying love.
But these few plain words from David shocked Rachel, like thunder rumbling in her ears.
When she heard that, her eyelashes fluttered in panic.
Although David did not say that much, she understood the profound meaning behind his words.
He was showing his determination in this way.
He wanted to say that he wouldn’t abandon her and be willing to take care of her and protect her for the rest of his life whether she was poor, old, ill, or in difficulty.
Rachel felt as if someone had just stuffed a cotton ball into her throat. Bitterness and sourness surged in there, and she could not utter a sound. Warm tears welled up constantly, gradually blurring her vision.
Rachel secretly bit her cheek and moved her hand from the corner of the table to her knees, grabbing her dress tightly.
Why did God not let her meet David a bit earlier?
After a long time, she took a deep breath and said, managing to keep her voice from trembling, “I’ll take care of this.”
David didn’t say anything but listened patiently on the other end of the line.
“I won’t become a flaw or weakness in your life. I will do my best to become a woman who is worthy of you in every way!” Rachel promised.
Since David would not leave her, she was willing to do anything for him.
“Alright.” David said dotingly, “Kid, don’t force yourself to do anything. If your can’t take it anymore, just cry.”
When Rachel heard that, a hint of a smile appeared in her misty eyes. “I know.”
After hanging up the phone, she let out a long sigh.
“Come on, tell me what to do!” Mary, who was sitting on the sofa, was like a
warrior ready to fight, her eyes full of anger and determination.
Seeing her like this, Rachel could not help but smile. “It’s time to use your marketing account.”
Upon hearing this, Mary frowned slightly and asked in confusion, “What are you doing?! Do you want more people to see the post?”
Rachel nodded and slowly stirred the coffee in her hand, saying calmly, “I’m sure the Smith family did it! They wanted to take this opportunity to divert everyone’s attention and ruin my reputation!”
“So?” Mary raised an eyebrow, listening with interest.
She had long known that Rachel was a scheming girl.
When they were at school, Rachel looked like an obedient student, but she was actually full of evil tricks. However, because of her good academic performance, the teachers all liked her, and the parents of other students all hoped that their kids would be as outstanding as her.
Even if she did something wrong, as long as it did not cross the line, people would forgive her.
“Since the Smith family wants to play the game, I don’t mind playing with them.” Rachel looked up at Mary and said with a meaningful smile, “What the Smith family care about the most is power and status. Since I could help them get this bit by bit, I can make them lose everything and go back to their old lives, of course!”
“It’s too complicated. Why don’t you just make them go bankrupt?” Mary asked.
Hearing that, Rachel shook her head lightly. “There’s nothing more torturous than losing something after obtaining it. I won’t bring them down until they enjoyed being surrounded by people like stars. I want them to feel the pain of watching themselves lose but unable to do anything about it.”
Rachel said indifferently, her tone full of disdain and arrogance. When Mary heard this, she felt a chill down her spine.
