Zoey wanted to get revenge on Juan for only giving her 30,000 dollars to break up with him. If she could get back at Corinne for causing her to lose her job, then it would kill two birds with one stone. Corinne’s name would be so tarnished that she would never land herself a decent man.
However, she did not expect that it would backfire after the silent video turned out to be audible!
At that moment, Juan tugged at Annie, panicking. “Listen to me, Annie. I swear I don’t know her that well…”
“Keep your hands off me! How could you still make excuses at this time? I never thought you were that sort of person!” Annie pushed him away in disgust, turned around, and grabbed the ends of her wedding dress as she ran out of the hall without turning back.
Juan shot Zoey a vicious look for ruining his wedding and hurried off to chase after Annie.
All the guests were already starting to criticize Zoey, and she fled the stage in shame.
She had seduced the man at a wedding that she was supposed to be a bridesmaid of, and even after demanding money to break up with the man, she went so far as to try and pin the blame on someone else! She was the very definition of shameless!
If there were rotten eggs lying around nearby, everyone would probably start hurling thern toward that shameless woman!
Corinne yawned sleepily, and her only thought at that moment was to go back and take a nap. When she inadvertently lowered her head and looked down, the first thing she saw was Jeremy’s semi-delighted gaze.
‘Why is he looking at me like that?’ she wondered.
After Corinne walked off the stage, a stern-faced Tommy walked up and cleared his throat before saying, I’d like to trouble all of you to act as if you saw nothing today, and that includes the wedding itself. If even a single word about this gets out, the Holdens will not hesitate to come after every single one of you. After all, there are plenty of guests here, and since we can’t possibly trace where the rumor came from, we’ll just have to target everyone present here.”
The atmosphere grew tense and suffocating.
“Ahem! I saw nothing.”
“Yeah, I didn’t see anything either.”
“I’m just here to have a buffet!”
“What a coincidence; so am I!”
The Levines were related to the Holdens through Jeremy’s biological mother. None of the guests there could afford to offend either the Holdens or Jeremy.
Jeremy got up and strode away as everyone fearfully watched on.
Corinne followed him from a reasonable distance, since she wanted to go home as soon as possible and get some sleep.
All of a sudden, Zeke approached Corinne with intrigue and said with a smile, “I didn’t expect you to be this
pretty, little girlie!”
Corinne glanced at Zeke and wondered, ‘Who the hell is this guy?’
By the time they walked out of the hall, they ran into Juan begging Annie for forgiveness.
“I promise I’ll never touch another woman again, Annie! It’s our wedding day today. Why don’t we talk about everything after the wedding is done?”
“You and I are done. I mean it. There won’t be a wedding!”
Juan’s expression turned cold, and he began gritting his teeth when he saw how unmoved Annie was despite begging her so desperately.
He needed to marry Annie, because the right to inherit his family’s assets would only be given to him once he married someone from the Levines!
He pulled Annie forcefully, leaned into her ear, and said softly, “Be a good girl and go through with the wedding, Annie. I promise to treat you well in the future. Don’t blame me for posting your nudes on the internet for all the men to see if you keep protesting!”
Annie was taken aback as she stared at Juan in disbelief. She could not even begin to process what this man, whom she had loved with all her heart for three years, said to her!
