Madison saw the anger in Wulfric’s eyes and finally revealed Christina’s true identity.
Wulfric was surprised. “She is Mr. Hadley’s wife? Well…”
No wonder that woman was so bold and dared to hit me. It turns out that she has a powerful backer behind her.
Madison whispered in his car. “Mr. Lachlan, don’t worry. She’s just a commoner. If you were to do something dirty to her… Will Mr. Hadley still come after you for revenge? Who in their right mind would want others to find out they’ve been cheated on? When the time comes, Christina will be a dirty stain on his reputation, and even if he wants to retaliate against you, he will be hindered by his own reputation and will have no choice but to suppress the matter.”
Madison’s plan sounded reasonable to Wulfric.
I get to have my revenge and vent my anger at the same time!
However, he became worried again in the next instant. “But she has many bodyguards around her, so it’s difficult to get close to her.”
Madison had already thought of a solution. “That’s easy. You just need to find someone to go to her on your behalf…”
As Wulfric listened to the plan, his eyes lit up while a confident smile appeared on his face.
Nathaniel had arranged for bodyguards to escort Christina to and from work.
At first, she refused, but after a few close calls, she agreed.
When she returned to Scenic Garden Manor, she saw several unfamiliar cars parked outside.
Upon entering the house, she saw Sierra and an elegant woman close to Sierra’s age sitting together, talking.
As soon as Christina walked in, Sierra launched a verbal attack on her. “Come over here and apologize to Mrs. Lachlan by serving her tea!”
Christina was confused and looked at the woman in front of her, feeling like she had seen her before.
“Aunt Sierra, I didn’t do anything wrong. Why should I apologize?” she asked.
Sierra’s lips curled into a sneer. I can’t believe the damn brat made a mistake so soon and gave me the perfect opportunity to humiliate her.
“You hit Mr. Lachlan. It’s only right for you to apologize,” she said.
I hit someone?
Christina quickly recalled the man she met at the fashion show last week. She realized then that the woman in front of her was his mother. No wonder they look so alike!
It was pure coincidence that Abigail Cooper saw the video and learned that her son had been slapped by
Even if Christina was from the Hadley family, it was still wrong to hit someone.
Abigail snorted coldly. “You will apologize to my son at the Lachlan residence and let him slap you Then we’ll call it even.”
If I don’t teach this brat a lesson, how will I be able to maintain my status in the city?
Christina now understood the whole situation. She turned to Sierra and said, “Aunt Sierra, you jumped to conclusions before understanding the whole situation. Don’t family members help each other?”
Sierra’s expression changed slightly. Is this brat implying that I’m helping outsiders instead of my own family?
“I saw with my own eyes that you hit someone. There’s video evidence. You’re in the wrong, and I’m just being reasonable,” Sierra retorted.
Christina couldn’t help but sneer, “Mr. Lachlan was the one who was rude and spoke disrespectfully to me first. Didn’t his mother teach him any manners?”
“You insolent brat! Who are you calling rude and disrespectful?” Abigail was so angry that she threw the teacup in her hand at Christina.
Christina deftly dodged it, her expression swiftly turning grim.
Abigail stood up angrily and glared at her icily. “Grab this girl and take her back to the Lachlan residence!”
Several bodyguards immediately rushed toward Christina.
“How dare you!” Christina shouted furiously.
How dare they arrest me at Scenic Garden Manor? Don’t they have any respect for Nathaniel?
Suddenly, a strong fragrance filled the air. Christina frowned, and then everything went black. She had passed out.
Abigail ordered her men to take Christina away.
Before leaving, she thanked Sierra. “Ms. Hadley, I will remember your help today.”
Sierra smiled lightly. “Make her apologize and teach her a lesson, but don’t go too far.”
After all, she still had to explain things to Nathaniel.
Abigail laughed. “Don’t worry, I’ll handle it well.”
Sierra couldn’t take action herself, so she was actually relying on the Lachlan family to teach Christina a harsh lesson. Both Abigail and Sierra knew this very well.
Abigail and her men left.
Raymond and the servants had been sent to the backyard to work earlier. When they returned to the house, they saw Sierra sitting alone on the couch, drinking tea and in a good mood.
However, the observant Raymond noticed Christina’s handbag beside the couch.
“Ms. Sierra, did you see Ms. Christina come back?”
Sierra didn’t look at him. “No, I didn’t see her. She’s probably working late and hasn’t returned yet.”
It would be best if no one found out that Christina was missing.
Raymond nodded and didn’t ask any more questions. He could tell that Sierra was lying.
After heading to the kitchen, he secretly called Nathaniel to inform him of Christina’s disappearance.
In his office, Nathaniel answered the call and was shocked to hear that Christina was missing..
He immediately called the bodyguards, who said they had safely taken her back to Scenic Garden Manor.
Yet, Christina was nowhere to be found in Scenic Garden Manor…
Suddenly, Raymond remembered something and continued, “I saw Mrs. Lachlan from the Lachlan family come to visit earlier. I’m not sure if the Lachlan family has anything to do with this matter.”
Nathaniel hung up the phone and immediately sent Sebastian to investigate the matter.
In the basement of the Lachlan residence, the chilly air quickly woke Christina up.
She opened her eyes and saw nothing but darkness.
I was at Scenic Garden Manor just a moment ago… Suddenly, her heart skipped a beat, and she sat up in shock.
Then the door opened.
Wulfric walked in, his eyes scanning Christina’s shocked face as he revealed a wicked smirk.
Christina was now his captive, and he could do whatever he wanted with her, depending on his mood.
“What do you want? Let me go!” Christina retreated warily.
This was the first time she had ever encountered such a lawless
Wulfric sneered, “I didn’t expect Mr. Hadley to have such poor taste as to fall for a brat like you.”
He had no idea that she was a member of the Hadley family until he heard it from Madison.
However, there was no way the Hadley family would go against the Lachlan family for a nobody like her.
Hence, he was sure that once she became his plaything, Nathaniel would give up on her for the sake of his reputation.
The final outcome for Christina was to become a discarded pawn of the Hadley family.
“How dare you touch me, even though you know who I am?” Christina glared at him with fury.
Wulfric approached her step by step. “Once you belong to me, Nathaniel won’t want you anymore. Don’t
naive to think that he’ll still want you back! You’ll be mine to keep, so you’d better behave. Don’t worry. Since you look so pretty, I’ll take good care of you.”
He eagerly moved closer, but Christina widened her eyes and delivered a swift kick to his groin.
Wulfric screamed in pain. “You vile woman! How dare you kick me?”
Christina seized the opportunity and grabbed objects in the room to throw at him. In just a few minutes, Wulfric went from cursing to begging for mercy, and he ended up beaten to a pulp by Christina.
“You won’t get out of the Lachlan residence.”
As this was the first time Christina had used violence against someone, she had a hard time controlling her strength. Thus, she accidentally broke Wulfric’s leg with a chair, causing him to pass out from the pain.
Seeing the man faint from excessive bleeding, Christina became frightened.
Oh no! He can’t be dead, can he?
As Christina stood there, unsure of what to do, the basement door opened again.
