Meanwhile, Amber was savoring her freshly painted fingernails. She tucked her cell phone between her chin and her shoulder as she greeted, “Hi, Madam Parham.”
“It’s me, Amber. There’s something that I’d like to talk to you about.”
Amber straightened up upon hearing Sue’s words. “Please tell me about it, Madam Parham.” After listening to Sue’s words, she hung up the phone and stared blankly at a spot on the floor.
After Jefferey came back from his company, he waved his hand before her eyes. “What’s wrong with you, Amber?”
His daughter came back to her senses and grabbed his arm at once. “Dad! You must help me with the matter that I told you last time!”
Jefferey was startled for a moment before he knitted his brows. “Don’t fool around! Rachel is still of use to me in the Burton Residence, so don’t do anything foolish.”
Amber was unconvinced. “Dad, I can also help you if I win the two men’s hearts. Why must you count on Rachel, that mute? What can she do?”
Even though Jefferey doted on Amber, he was aware of her willfulness. “That’s enough, Amber. All you have to do is win Julian’s heart. It will be better if you can make him do whatever you say since that will enable my plan to be better accomplished in the future. Don’t think about everything else. Justin has a heart of stone, so you’d better not mess with him.”
Amber shook her head. “No, no, no. You’re wrong, Dad. Justin is very nice to me. He likes me, and I’m confident of making him fall in love with me. As for Julian, he’ll also be mine sooner or later—please say yes, Dad. If you get Rachel out of the Burton Residence, my plan will be halfway accomplished! Please, Dad!”
However, Jefferey didn’t want to see Amber making trouble no matter how much he doted on her. “All right, don’t say that anymore. I won’t help you with this, so you should stop having designs on Justin as soon as possible. I’ll never let him off, let alone allow you to fall in love with him. That’s impossible.”
In the end, Amber still couldn’t shake Jefferey’s determination; she glared at him from behind with a look of displeasure as he left. However, even her father couldn’t stop her when she became wayward. “I must get married to Justin by whatever means. He should have been my man! Rachel seized my husband for herself!” After that, she gritted her teeth. “Since you’re not going to help me, I’ll just do it myself, Dad!” Then, she dialed Rachel’s number.
Rachel was watering the flowers when she received a phone call from an unfamiliar number. It was not until she heard the voice on the other end that she realized it was Amber. “It’s me, Rachel.”
Rachel’s hand that was holding the watering can paused for a moment when she heard Amber’s malicious laugh over the phone. Amber then stated her purpose on her own by saying, “I won’t beat around the bush, Rachel. I want Justin, so please leave on your own initiative. Since you’re my sister, I won’t make things too difficult for you. How about that?”
Rachel simply wanted to laugh. They’re father and daughter, yet one is forcing me to stay at the Burton Residence while the other is threatening and asking me to leave instead. Does that make a fence-sitter who does whatever they want me to do? she thought to herself.
Of course, she wasn’t intimidated by Amber’s threat. Jefferey controlled her grandmother’s health, whereas Amber was only a wayward and self-centered little girl. Therefore, she hung up the phone directly without saying a word after Amber made this absurd request.
The other woman glared at her cell phone with an extremely gloomy expression, and her face was as black as thunder. Suddenly, she hit upon an idea, and the corner of her lips turned up. “You forced me to do this, Rachel!” The smile on her lips was as strangely and charmingly beautiful as a flower. Right after that, she called another person and said, “John, I want you to help me find a high school PE teacher. By whatever means, get him to come and see me.”
As expected, a video made it into the list of trending topics on social media by the third day. It contained a confession of a bald middle-aged man, who gave an account of how he had a relationship with a female student a few years ago when he was a teacher at a high school. Furthermore, he described a string of unscrupulous details, including how he and the female student had had sex in hotel rooms.
Rachel’s photo appeared in the lower corner of the video. After that, someone began to dox her, and netizens quickly dug up her name, her address, and her identity as an illegitimate daughter. As the incident escalated very quickly, another post titled ‘The Scandalous Story Between the Mute Wife of the Burton Group’s President and Her High School Teacher’ made it into the list of trending topics and was ranked first by the netizens.
