Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 61
On the way back to the company, Rachel received a call from Tom, which didn’t come as a surprise at all.
She did not need to guess to know that Lucas must have sold her out by playing nice to the other party.
She heaved a sigh of relief and picked up the phone. She called out softly, “Uncle.”
“You must be scared.” Tom skipped the small talk and went straight to the point. “Lucas told me everything about you. Don’t worry. I won’t let you suffer for nothing! I’ll definitely get to the bottom of this.”
The man’s voice was low and had an imperceptible edge to it.
“Uncle, I can handle this myself,” Rachel said.
“I’ve already sent people to look into it. We’ll get the result soon!” Tom’s tone was low and filled with displeasure. “This matter is too serious. There’s no reason for the other party to leave without paying after hurting you!”
Hearing the conviction in his uncle’s tone, Rachel felt a warm current in her heart.
This feeling of being protected by her family made Rachel feel as if she had an army behind her.
Rachel calmed down and said docilely, “Since I’m the Johnson family’s child, how can I be bullied so easily? Let me handle it myself. Moreover, the other party didn’t hurt me. There’s no need for you to mobilize so many people.”
Tom, who was on the other end of the phone, was silent for a long time. In the end, he compromised and sighed. “I won’t interfere with you, but I definitely won’t let you suffer for no reason!”
In other words, she could do whatever she wanted but this didn’t conflict with what he wanted to do.
After hanging up, Mary looked at Rachel enviously.
In her impression, the Johnson family had been way too partial to Rachel.
She remembered this one time clearly when Rachel casually said that she wanted to eat ice cream. Tom bought all of Seaxas’s ice cream because he did not know what flavor Rachel wanted to eat.
It was precisely because of this that Mary deeply understood what it meant to be loved by everyone.
Thinking of this, she sighed slowly. “To be honest, I didn’t know what jealousy was before I saw you.”
“Huh?” Rachel raised her eyebrows slightly, revealing an indifferent attitude.
The unhappy Mary looked at Rachel aggrievedly. “I’m the daughter of one of Seaxas’s four great families, the Green family. In the Green family, I can get whatever I want, but compared to you, I feel like I am just an orphan adopted by them.”
“A while ago, I heard that a certain rich man spent 100 thousand dollars on the bracelet at the Magnificent Jewelry Auction.” Rachel picked up her wrist and looked at her with a
meaningful gaze. “It looks exactly like yours.
Mary retracted her hand in embarrassment. With the movement, the gem embedded in the bracelet reflected a colorful light. However, she was not happy at all. Instead, she said angrily, “He owed me!”
The car soon arrived at Johnson Corporation’s building. Rachel opened the car door and got out.
When she walked into the office, she received a call from David. “I booked a private room at Lansen Restaurant. Shall we go together tonight?”
Hearing the man’s request, Rachel could not help but laugh. “There are still five hours until dinner. Don’t you think it’s a bit too early to ask?”
“This is the only reason I can think of rightfully to see you and not be easily rejected by you,” David explained seriously. “Or… if Miss Grey is willing, maybe we can go out as boyfriend and girlfriend.”
