Sierra shot her an icy look. “What was that all about? It was incredibly rude of you to say such a thing. You’ve brought humiliation upon the Hadley family!”
How did I humiliate the Hadley family? I’m married to a Hadley, and you’re asking me to act like a servant. You’re the
ne humiliating the family!
Christina refused to pay them any heed. They can get anyone to wait upon them, but that won’t be me!
As she turned abruptly to head upstairs, the distinct sound of a car engirie shutting off reached her ears from outside.
Nathaniel entered the house with a purposeful stride, his tall figure exuding a commanding presence. Though there was no spotlight illuminating him, he naturally emitted an irresistible charm while his expression remained cold and distant.
His gaze narrowed when he noticed Christina was dressed in a maid uniform.
Her cheeks were flushed with a rosy hue, and her large eyes, complemented by her porcelain skin, gave her the appearance of a delicate doll.
It was the first time he had seen her dressed in such an outfit, and he could feel something stirring in his nether regions.
Sierra’s grin widened as Nathaniel approached. “You’re back, Nathaniel. Come, have a seat. Allow me to introduce you to a friend.”
Nathaniel’s just like any other man, so Alana’s pretty face will definitely captivate him.
Alana inched closer to Sierra shyly as her heart began to race wildly.
Oh, the legendary Mr. Hadley is indeed handsome! In fact, he’s hotter than I expected. With his handsome looks and wealthy background, he’s the perfect match for me!
Nathaniel grunted in acknowledgment and came into the living room. Instead of sparing Alana a look, he went to Christina and sat down beside her.
Glancing at Christina’s furious expression, he flashed a charming smile and said, “I could use a glass of
They had parted on a sour note after a heated argument previously. Upon calming down, he realized that there was no need for them to fight over Francis.
She should be content now that I’ve taken the first step to initiate a conversation with her.
To his surprise, Christina folded her arms and ignored his request. “If you want some water, get it yourself!”
He’s perfectly healthy but wants me to wait upon him? Dream on!
Nathaniel knew she was still upset, and his expression tensed up. Arching a brow, he gazed at her so intently as though he was about to pull her into his embrace, forcing her to stop being mad at him.
Alana couldn’t help but grow curious. Why is this maid so rude? I can’t believe she’s bold enough to talk back to Mr. Hadley!
“Ms. Hadley, I think this maid is terribly rude. Why don’t you fire her?” Alana suggested. If she stays, she’ll continue being an eyesore to me.
Christina’s temper finally flared after she was provoked time and again. “No one dares to fire me in this household!”
If I were to leave, a certain someone might set up several layers of walls made out of iron outside the mansion to prevent me from escaping!
Never in Alana’s life had she met such a rude maid. Glaring at Christina, she declared, “You’re just a lowly maid, trash at the very bottom of the social order! How dare you yell at me?”
If she had been working for the Hernandez family, I would’ve kicked her out ages ago!
Christina let out an icy snort. She’s showing her true colors this soon, huh?
Her eyes narrowed with a sharp gaze as she fired back. “So maids are nothing but trash to you, huh? Ms. Hernandez, how dare you claim to be born into a scholarly family? Have you never learned the basic principles of respect? Is this the exemplary behavior the Hernandez family instills in you?”
“Hey!” Alana was too young and inexperienced to match Christina’s wit. Her face twisted in anger, and she stood up abruptly, her fierce expression in contrast to her cute dress.
How dare the maid mock me for being rude? I want to tear her mouth off!
Christina had no interest in engaging in further conversation with them. Her purpose for visiting the house was to gather her usual tools. As it was getting late, she left them both in an uncomfortable silence and made her way up the stairs.
Nathaniel was amused at how fiery Christina’s attitude was.
He got to his feet and followed her up the stairs.
Sierra forced out a nervous chuckle. Christina knew Alana’s my guest but didn’t bother being nice to her. Clearly she wants to embarrass me.
She gently patted Alana’s hand, offering comfort. “Alana, don’t let her words upset you. You’re refined and cultured, so don’t take her remarks to heart. Let me go to the kitchen and have them prepare some desserts for you, okay?”
Sierra rose to her feet and made her way to the kitchen, feeling disappointed that Nathaniel didn’t show much interest in Alana and that Christina seemed unaffected by Alana’s presence.
Why is Christina so difficult to deal with?
Alana could sense the change in Sierra’s attitude, but she wasn’t a pushover either.
She fished out a tiny bottle from her bag, inside of which contained some yellow powder. Those who smelled it would lose their minds.
A friend had given it to her when they went out for some fun previously.
That maid went upstairs, right? I need to teach her a lesson before I leave.
Alana tiptoed upstairs. The bedroom door was ajar, and she could see Christina packing up her stuff through the gap in the door.
She pushed the door open and strode in, gripping the bottle tightly. Her gaze fell on Christina’s nose. It will only take a second…
Hearing the footsteps, Christina turned over her shoulder to see Alana inching nearer with a malicious expression on her face.
This is the master bedroom, so you can’t come in.” She made it clear that Alána wasn’t welcome.
Alana wasn’t even paying any attention to her. She held up the bottle and hurled the contents at Christina’s
A sweet and spicy scent filled the air, and Alana’s lips curled into a smirk. She was told that the drug’s effects couldn’t be neutralized easily..
Anyone who sniffed the drug would lose their mind temporarily, singing and dancing like a madnian. They would even pounce on any available man.
Ha! You’ll be utterly humiliated. Let’s see if you dare to mock me again.
Christina stood rooted to her spot as she locked gazes with Alana icily.
Why isn’t she talking or moving? Is something off with the drug?
“Hey, are you okay?” The moment Alana spoke, she realized the scent in the air was wafting toward her, She took one step forward to investigate, but as soon as her foot landed, her mind became muddled. Christina’s gaze turned icy as she swiftly turned around to open the windows and let the fresh air flow in, dispersing the lingering scent.
“How could you be okay?” Alana was shocked to discover that Christina was fine even after sniffing the drug. After all, the drug’s effects would kick in with just one whiff
Christina let out an icy snort. “Trying to drug me, huh? You should improve your skills!”
As she used to work at a club, she had encountered all sorts of people and drugs.
Christina was quick to realize Alana’s scheme upon noticing the menacing look in the latter’s gaze. When Alana hurled the contents of the bottle at her, she promptly held her breath to avoid being affected by the drug.
She only started talking after opening the windows wide.
“B*tch, how dare you trick me?” Alana demanded angrily.
Before she could express her anger, she suddenly felt as though her body was being lifted into the air, causing her to burst into uncontrollable laughter like a drunk stripper in a club.
Hearing the commotion, Nathaniel walked out of his study to see Alana dancing and twirling around like a madwoman along the corridor
