During the yearly family gatherings, her Aunt Beth would always say how good her husband was in front of her and her mother. She would say how well their company was doing and expanding.
Saying that she had a good life even without depending on the Lawsons, unlike them who were being supported by Thea.
She never thought that they were actually depending on her uncles‘ goodwill!
Her three uncles did very well in Gryphon. They all had their own companies and cared a lot about family. Every year, her uncles would shower her with gifts even after she was married.
Of course, so did Esme.
During the three years that Esme was overseas, her uncles would directly transfer money to Esme’s bank account instead of giving gifts.
Her uncles treated her and Esme the same. They had never treated one better than the other.
“And now, not only are you not grateful that you used our family to transform a little hoodlum like Hank into an entrepreneur, but you’ve also even set your eyes on destroying Echo and Fia?! How dare you!” “Of… Of course, I do!” Beth was only embarrassed for a few minutes before going back to her old self. “I’m your daughter too! Esme’s your granddaughter too! What right do you have to give that project solely to Fia?”
“The only reason I need is that I own the project and I have the right to oversee it! For the past three years, the reason I passed the project to Old Maxwell’s grandson is because of Fia. If he didn’t marry Fia three years ago, I would have directly passed the project to her right there and then!”
“Ha! Is that how it is, mother? You’ve already decided three years ago?!”
“I don’t want to waste any more time with you. You can forget about that project!” After saying so many things, Thea’s throat was getting a bit dry.
Fia quickly poured a glass of water for her and said, “Have a drink, grandma.”
After Thea drank a glass of water, she glanced at Echo who was hanging her head low. She knew that Beth was ambitious and wanted the best out of everything. That was why she would always let her choose what she wanted first and that had hurt Echo. She never expected that to turn her into someone as shameless as she was now!
“Mom, Esme is your granddaughter too! You cannot play favoritism with this project! Even if you must, then the two of them have to share.”
1 refuse.” Thea then said in a strict tone, “You can forget about the project. It doesn’t suit your company anyway!”
“How does it not suit us? Echo and Fia are too weak. There’s no one that can become a leader between the two of them. It’s a waste to give them the project!”
“Fia was in the fine arts and she majored in design back in university. Only she can understand the meaning the project holds!”
Beth took a deep breath. She knew how stubborn the old woman was. It was no longer possible to take it from her directly.
And so, she chose to take a step back and stared at Fia.
“Alright, Fia. Give that project to your cousin. I’ll ask Conrad to buy it from you.”
“B*llsh*t!” Thea cursed. “Conrad is Fia’s husband. Why should he spend his money to buy anything for your daughter?!”
After Beth was stopped, she became even more brazen and said with a vicious tone, “The two of them are going to divorce anyway and he’s going to marry Esme! He belonged to Esme originally anyway!”
“Haha, Beth… You’re so…”
Thea was so angry that she almost choked.
“We’re not selling.” Fia stroked her grandmother’s back and then stared at her aunt, filled with resolve.
Initially, everything could be discussed.
She had even decided that as long as Conrad was willing to pay the price, she would give the money to her grandma and Esme could have the project.
But her aunt had disgusted her so much that she couldn’t take it anymore.
Not only did she ignore her and her mother, she even kept on yelling at her grandma. She didn’t even care if she was sick! What kind of a daughter was that?
Even if she was not doing this for herself, she had to do it for her grandma!
“That’s right, my Fia.” Thea patted the back of Fia’s hand and gave Beth a stare. “We’re not selling! No matter how much you pay!”
