The TV wall was a fair distance from the second floor, so all Marguerite could make out was a pregnancy test report that looked oddly familiar.
Then slowly, the screen zoomed in and the name in the top left corner became more and more clear.
Marguerite squinted and found to her shock, the name on the pregnancy report was her own!
A sense of shock descended, leaving Marguerite’s mind in a whirl, barely able to think straight.
Why was her pregnancy report on the Winston family’s TV wall?
Who the hell put it there!
She didn’t have time to think further, she was shaking all over, looking at Frederick beside her, her face pale as snow, cold as ice.
Frederick’s icy stare at that moment sent a chill of fear down her spine.
Meanwhile, the celebrities downstairs started chattering away.
“Who’s this Marguerite? She’s pregnant? Whose kid is it?”
“Who is this Marguerite? Is she some rich kid’s mistress or a home wrecker?”
“Can’t you guys see? This Marguerite is forcing the legal wife to divorce! She doesn’t want to be the other woman, she wants to be the wife. That’s why she’s making the pregnancy public!”
Though the topic was unsavory, it was the talk of the town.
Marguerite’s head was in a spin, she was at a loss, gripping Frederick’s arm, “Frederick, listen to me…I…I…”
Tears filled her eyes, her lips moved, but no words came out.
She had no idea how her pregnancy report ended up here, at the moment, all she knew was any explanation seemed weak and meaningless.
Her trembling hands were shaken off by the man, “Marguerite, I really underestimated you!”
He had defended her honor so resolutely in the study room, even willing to stand against his entire family to give her a name, to protect her.
And she, behind his back, was carrying another man’s child!
He, the head of the Winston Group, was for the first time subjected to such humiliation!
Frederick felt like a joke! A big joke!
“Frederick, it’s not what you think! Will you listen to me?” Marguerite’s tears flowed non–stop.
“Marguerite, do you have no shame? You’re carrying another man’s child, and you have the audacity to ask me how to introduce you! How should I introduce you? As a backstabber?”
Marguerite was lost for words, all she could do was apologize and cry, but the voice behind her was even more severe.
“This is your idea of an innocent woman? Didn’t you say nothing happened between you two? Whose child is she carrying?!”
Powell, one hand on his cane, the other clutching his chest, was almost suffocating with rage!
Whose child was it?
Even Marguerite wasn’t sure!
Frederick’s fists clenched so hard his knuckles turned white, his nails digging deep into his flesh.
“Didn’t I warn you? I said this woman would ruin your future! You insisted she wouldn’t deceive you, look at what’s happening now! Our entire family has lost face because of this! Frederick, why do you still protect her? Do you want her to destroy our whole family?”
A chill spread, Frederick’s deep eyes turned bloodshot, “This is my business. I’ll handle it, and you have no right to interfere.”
“Frederick, how could you talk to me like that? You……you……” Powell was so angry he felt a tightness in his chest, clutching at it, breathing heavily.
Frederick’s words were sharp, his cold eyes fixed on Marguerite, then he turned and left without a word.
No denying, Frederick was mad, but he couldn’t bring himself to lash out at Marguerite.
Because everything happened so suddenly, behind his anger, there was an overwhelming sense of helplessness.
He felt like his heart was being crushed by a huge rock, suffocating him, trapping him, causing him pain.
He didn’t want to face it. He couldn’t believe the woman he thought was pure and innocent would choose to betray him in this way.
It was both ironic and despairing for him.
Marguerite immediately ran after him, barely taking a few steps down the stairs when Steven came running up with a bunch of servants.
“Powell has fainted! Bring the first aid kit, now!”
The scene descended into chaos once again, but Marguerite couldn’t care less.
She had one thing on her mind, she must find Frederick and tell him the truth.
She had to tell Frederick, she too was a victim, a month ago she was forced to sleep with someone at the Regal Haven Hotel. But at that time, she didn’t even know Frederick!
She wasn’t married to him yet!
So, her so–called betrayal was actually forced upon her!
