Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 229 Overwhelmed In An Instant
This question had been nagging at Rachel.
After all, this was the reason why Rachel had chosen Louis despite her family’s objections back then. It was the reason why she had worked so hard for the Smith family.
The moment Rachel blurted out this sentence, her heart was in her throat.
When Louis heard Rachel’s words, a thoughtful look appeared in his eyes.
Rachel looked at Louis quietly and suddenly had an answer in her heart.”
A faint and cold smile appeared on Rachel’s red lips. Without any hesitation, Rachel opened the car door and bent down to get into the car.
The car started to drive away, leaving Louis rooted to the ground.
When the car completely disappeared from Louis‘ sight, Louis suddenly
remembered what Rachel had said.
“Back then, I made the Smith family successful. That gave you the confidence to test my bottom line repeatedly. But now, I regret it!”
“You have my word. I’ll do my best to get the Smith family back to what it
Louis wondered, “Would Rachel do that?”
If it had been the past Rachel, who was submissive to him, Louis firmly believed she would not do that.
After all, the Smith family had experienced many twists and turns when they made a comeback back then, and Rachel had put in a lot of effort to help the Smith family.
“But what about the current Rachel?” Louis thought.
First, Rachel had experienced Louis‘ betrayal of her. Now, she had
encountered the trouble caused by Jane.
With Rachel’s personality, she would definitely not let the matter rest!
At the thought of this, Louis trembled uncontrollably.
A chill spread from the soles of his feet to his limbs and bones, making him shiver uncontrollably.
In his panic, he quickly took out his phone to contact Old Mr. Smith.
However, on second thought, the Smith family now was no longer the same as the Smith family of the past. It would be impossible for Rachel to destroy the Smith family that easily.
The Smith family had so many important development projects on their hands. As long as the loan was approved and the government approved the projects, it would be enough to protect the Smith family’s current status.
Therefore, it was simply impossible for Rachel to bring down the Smith. family now!
Ever since Rachel got into the car, she had been silent as she looked at the scenery outside the car window.
“Aren’t you afraid that your boyfriend will be jealous now?” David’s cold and magnetic voice sounded from behind.
Rachel snapped out of her thoughts and looked at David’s outstretched arm. She understood his gesture and leaned over. “I suddenly feel that my persistence over the years had been ridiculous.”
In the end, it turned out that the truth she firmly believed in was meaningless.
Rachel suddenly felt that her persistence over the years had become
“You went to Phareborough?” David suddenly asked.
A complicated look flashed across Rachel’s eyes. She hesitated for half a second before nodding. “I once attended summer camp there with Lucas. When I couldn’t fall asleep at night, I slipped out of the school through the wall and unknowingly barged into that place…”
In that place, Rachel had witnessed the fragility of human life and the cruelty
and numbness of human nature.
Time seemed to have been deliberately slowed down by God. Every minute and second became incomparably torturous.
Under the rain of bullets, everyone covered their ears and hid in the filthy corners, like rats struggling at death’s door.
That was the most painful memory in the depths of Rachel’s memory.
“That’s not a place for girls,” David said.
When Rachel heard this, she sat up straight and stared at David with clear, pretty eyes. It was as if she could see into the depth of his being.
David raised his eyebrows slightly. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing.” Rachel lowered her eyes and shook her head gently.
A long time ago, she had escaped that bloody and turbulent night with that person’s protection.
At that time, that man had said the same thing.
All these years, Rachel had been struggling to find the answer. Yet, the
