Ellinor flashed a small smile, “Really? Can’t wait to see what’s up!”
The servants had already prepared the carriage for the journey.
“Madam, Miss, please get in the carriage. Let’s not get the old man any angrier. He might let you return after some time.”
Xenia and Patricia Howard shot one last resentful glance at Ellinor before begrudgingly getting into the carriage heading for the
In the Howard family’s house.
With Xenia and Patricia gone, the house had become relatively quiet.
Dean, however, was still fuming at his son, who was acting immature despite his age. “Look at you! Over forty, and you can’t
even keep your wife and child in check. Look at what they’ve turned into!”
McNeil Howard, who had been engrossed in his phone, looked up at his old man, “You’re not satisfied again?”
The mocking tone of his son made Dean’s blood pressure shoot up, “I’m talking about your problems, and you’re questioning
whether I’m satisfied?!”
McNeil responded calmly, “Wasn’t it you who forced me to divorce Marlinie and marry Xenia? Now you’re unhappy with Xenia?
Fine, pick someone you like, and I’ll marry her for you.”
Dean was so mad that the veins on his forehead were pulsating. He pointed at his only son, his hand trembling with rage,

the stairs.
At that moment, a servant announced, “Sirs, Madam! Ms. Mendoza has arrived!”
Dean and Alyssa were surprised by Ellinor’s arrival. They froze, looking towards the entrance, where Ellinor stood quietly behind
the servant. Her expression was indifferent, with a barely visible smile on her face, and a cold look in her eyes.
