Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 99
Rachel walked to the side and sat in an armchair.
She raised her eyes and looked coldly at the Smith family’s women who were led by Mrs. Smith. She had an aura all around her.
“Olivia deserved it!”
“Bullshit!” Jane pointed at Rachel and scolded, “If it weren’t for a vicious woman like you deliberately blowing up the matter, Olivia wouldn’t have been banned by the company! You asked for two million dollars! You were driving her to the corner! Now that you’ve caused her to be like this, you say that it has nothing to do with you. You’re shameless!
“In the final analysis, you’re just jealous of Olivia! You’re jealous of her better family background and cannot stand the fact that my brother would rather choose her than you. That’s why you took the opportunity to take revenge on Olivia! Fortunately, my brother dumped you. Otherwise, if he married a vicious woman like you, our Smith family would be in deep trouble!”
“Jane, stop talking. It’s been so long. Besides, my actions at that time were indeed a little inappropriate.” Olivia gently pulled Jane’s arm and looked pitifully at Rachel, who was sitting in the armchair. “Whether it’s my appearance or Louis’s choice, Miss Grey, just hate me. I’m willing to bear all of it. It’s all my fault…”
“Of course, it’s your fault!” Rachel cut her off. She looked at Olivia coldly. “You brought all this upon yourself!”
When Jane heard her words, she immediately flew into a rage. “What do you mean by that? You’re the one who’s in the wrong! You clearly know that my brother loved someone else, but you were pestering him and dreaming of marrying him. You deserve to be abandoned in the end!”
Rachel’s eyes narrowed slightly, and there was a faint fierceness in the depths of her almond–shaped eyes. “That’s right. I deserve to be abandoned. Since I’ve been abandoned, can I take away the
investors I’ve found for the Smith family all these years?”
Back then, when the Smith family was on the verge of bankruptcy, Rachel worked like a horse in order to find investors for the family. She found new investors for the Smith family and brought it back on track.
Thanks to her, the Smith family’s crisis was solved, making it emerge as a rising family in Seaxas.
All these years, Mrs. Smith was well–versed in the ways of the world. She was worried that Rachel would use this matter to threaten the Smith family, so she had long become friends with the investors‘ wives. However, there were no eternal friends in this world, only unchanging interests.
If Rachel was tempted by benefits, it was hard to guarantee that those people would not change sides and choose Rachel.
At the thought of this, Mrs. Smith’s sharp eyes flickered across Rachel as she said indifferently, “Alright, it’s all past.”
Mrs. Smith paused for a moment. Like a parent who cared for her juniors, she lectured Rachel, “Relationships don’t always make sense. Louis did some ill–considered things at the wedding venue that day. I’ll say the same thing as before. If you have any grievances in your heart, feel free to ask something for us. We’ll do our best to satisfy all your requests to make up for you.”
Rachel’s lips curled into a mocking smile.
On the day of the wedding, Rachel was abandoned by her fiancé and was mocked by the guests. In the end, all she got in return was the word ‘ill–considered‘.
Rachel took a deep breath and tried her best to suppress the hatred raging in her chest.
Today was Old Mr. Smith’s 80th birthday after all. She did not want to make things too ugly and upset him.
Rachel stood up and said, “I’m going to pay my respects to Old Mr. Smith!”
Seeing her get up and leave, Mrs. Smith hurriedly stood up as well. “Since you’re back this time, why don’t you stay for a meal later?”
Mrs. Smith specially asked Louis to bring Rachel back. It was not just to celebrate Old Mr. Smith’s birthday.
Moreover, the Smith family was thriving now. All the guests invited were either rich or noble. There was no need for a country girl like Rachel to join in the fun.
