Chapter 3 Assistance
“Sasha!” Even if Evonne had skin as thick as her belly, she couldn’t stand being ridiculed by others to such an extent.
“Sashie, Evonne is innocent. If you have any dissatisfaction, just come at me,” Felix stated defensively. However, he wasn’t sure if he did that for Evonne or if he was angry about being described as having lowered his standards.
“I didn’t know you were so eloquent before. It seems you’ve done a lot of work to put up an act while in front of us!” Queenie also felt insulted, so she mocked Sasha for being pretentious.
Never a pushover, Sasha bit back on the spot. “My actions can’t compare to yours. While you claim to be indifferent to fame and fortune, you’re so greedy for money that you had your son appease the Hughton family by offering himself up!”
Queenie was so angry that she stomped her foot. “Watch your words! I am not greedy for money!”
Felix, who was always a mama’s boy, also got anxious. “Sashie, I can overlook you insulting me, but my mom did nothing to you! If you keep being so rude to her, I won’t go soft on you either!”
“I’ve been polite enough to her. I didn’t expect this old hag to be so arrogant and refuse to admit it!”
Sasha couldn’t stand Felix being so overly obedient to his mother.
Meanwhile, Felix wouldn’t allow anyone to badmouth his mother and was about to hit Sasha.
Not only did Queenie and Evonne not stop him, but they even encouraged him, shouting, “Hit her, Felix! That will teach her not to mess with our family!”
At that moment, a majestic voice of a man was heard. “Stop!”
Sasha looked up in shock, only to see Broderick, the man who shared an intimate and passionate moment with her last night, standing behind her.
He was dressed in a tailored black suit, his stunning physique towering over her.
The other three people also took notice of Broderick, especially Evonne, who couldn’t hide the look of amazement in her eyes.
“Broderick, this woman is Felix’s ex. She insulted us after trying and failing to reconcile with Felix by borrowing money from him. She’s really no good at all.” As soon as she snapped back to her senses, Queenie blamed everything on Sasha.
Sasha had insulted her in the presence of her younger brother. Thus, Queenie was sure that the woman had gotten on Broderick’s bad side, and there wouldn’t be a place for her in Xosa from that moment onward.
Felix also thought that as Queenie’s younger brother, Broderick wouldn’t allow things to slide since Sasha had essentially bullied Broderick’s sister in front of him.
Although he was worried about Sasha, he didn’t intend to dissuade Broderick from taking action.
After all, Sasha had crossed a line, and it would be good to let his Uncle Broderick teach her a lesson.
Sasha thought the same and assumed Broderick would punish her for her actions. After all, the two people she insulted were his family.
She was even ready to be beaten, but much to her surprise, the man was chiding his family. “She’s no good for insulting you, but are you any better for hitting her?”
Sasha wasn’t the only one surprised. Queenie and Felix were also taken aback and glanced at Broderick in shock.
They expected Broderick to side with them instead of being just.
“You’re right, Uncle Broderick.” Considering that his mother Queenie was older than Broderick, making her apologize would be inappropriate, so Felix had to take the initiative to say something.
“You shouldn’t apologize to me.”
After Broderick said that, Felix and Queenie’s faces fell.
“Does that mean he wants us to apologize to Sasha? But she’s a nobody. Even if it’s our fault, apologizing to her is a humiliation,” they thought.
Unfortunately, Broderick was there. It would be an embarrassment to him if they didn’t do as he said.
While Felix and Queenie were hesitating, Sasha piped up, “Forget about apologizing. I won’t accept it. In fact, I’d better take this opportunity to make everything clear.”
Felix looked at Sasha in surprise and found that she was also looking at him.
“Felix, per your wishes, our engagement will be called off. We have nothing to do with each other in the future. However, it’s not that you don’t want me, but that I don’t want you anymore.”
Sasha’s soft voice was laced with a hint of coldness, which made Felix feel uneasy. It was as if something important in his life was slowly slipping away.
“Sashie.” He stretched out his hand as if it was out of his control and tried to grab something.
However, Sasha didn’t spare him a second glance. She merely turned around and left.
As Broderick glanced at Sasha’s back, Queenie said, “Broderick, don’t let those irrelevant people affect our mood. I’ve asked the chef to prepare…”
Before she could finish her words, Broderick interrupted her, “I have something else to attend to, so I have to go.”
“Then, the factory…” Queenie wanted to bring the two production lines of the Hoffman family over to the Gibson family. That was why she asked Broderick to come over.
“We’ll talk about it later.” After saying that, Broderick left without wasting another second.
Displeased, Queenie could only swear profusely. “It’s all that woman’s fault! If it weren’t for her, I would have secured us those two production lines by now!”
At that moment, Felix was still staring in the direction where Sasha had left, completely ignoring Queenie’s cursing, and as for Evonne, she had forgotten everything since she laid eyes on Broderick.
She thought Felix was considered a rare gem, given his handsome features. That was why she did everything she could to get him all for herself. She didn’t expect his uncle to be even more exceptional.
Evonne was already mesmerized by Broderick’s immaculate features that she paid no heed to Queenie’s words.
After leaving the Gibson residence, Sasha walked aimlessly on the street, thinking about ways to fork out a large sum of money to treat her mother.
Just then, a private car stopped beside Sasha. The back window was slowly lowered, revealing Broderick’s flawless and handsome countenance.
Before Sasha could regain her senses, the man instructed curtly, “Get in.”
