At the same time, at Diamond Crest Estates.
As soon as Yuna got home, she exploded, swearing like a street shrew.
“That wicked woman Marguerite. Laverne is almost dead, why didn’t she drop dead too? Hosting that stupid fragrance competition, just to show off her power, right? And she actually expects me to apologize to her? As if! That witch isn’t even fit to carry my shoes. And she dares to dream that I would apologize to her. Mom and Dad, you didn’t see her arrogant face today, it made my blood boil.”
Not feeling vented enough, Yuna grabbed a vase and smashed it to the ground.
The sound of breaking glass sent a wave of panic through Zoe and Ablett, and the cell phones in their hands almost fell as well.
They were scrolling through online comments. Since Yuna lost the competition, the internet opinion flipped within a day.
What pissed them off more was that Frederick called out ScentSpirits Ltd. to apologize on camera in the morning, which stirred everyone’s anger. Netizens also posted their opinions on the official website of ScentSpirits Ltd.
ScentSpirits Ltd. started as a small workshop with the initial intention of establishing a foothold in the perfume industry by replicating Golden Cascade through Yuna’s copying. However, her performance turned out to be so disappointing, resulting in a complete loss.
Unable to handle the pressure, the staff of ScentSpirits Ltd. had to step out to apologize.
In order to salvage their reputation, they quickly distanced themselves from Yuna, claiming they had no idea about Yuna’s plagiarism, and they were victims too. Instantly, the whole web’s condemnation towards Yuna grew even stronger.
Ablett took a deep breath, and started analyzing the situation for Yuna.
“You should focus on handling the negative comments online now. The internet is full of people condemning you. Seeing this, Frederick might waver. Your priority now is to reassure him.”
Yuna, red–eyed with anger, retorted, “Dad! Freddie doesn’t even want to see me now, how am I supposed to reassure him?”
Zoe immediately pulled Yuna over, “Didn’t Frederick stand up for you when Marguerite wanted you to apologize today? If he doesn’t care about you anymore, would he do that? He’s just angry.”
Yuna, on the verge of tears, asked, “Mom, what should I do next then?”
Zoe suddenly thought of an idea.
“Go buy a new dress tomorrow, doll yourself up in front of Frederick. Men are all about looks. Sweet talk him a bit, once he’s happy, he won’t be mad at you anymore.
Besides, Marguerite was so tough today, Frederick saw it. Marguerite, having neither the looks nor the figure, will never be accepted by the wealthy family.
You’re so pretty, you should pay more attention to your appearance and let Frederick see your gentleness and value.”
Yuna was completely convinced by Zoe.
“Mom, I’ll listen to you. I’ll go to Grandeur Square Mall to buy clothes tomorrow. I will get the most expensive and luxurious brands. Only in this way can I truly deserve Freddie’s status.”
Early next morning, at Sapphire Valley Estates.
The chef prepared a lavish breakfast. Marguerite walked into the dining room, seeing Sadie and the servants setting up the table.
She quickly scanned the table, full English breakfast, North African eggs, French toast, and various fresh juices.
Marguerite was a bit puzzled, and turned to ask Sadie, “Sadie, I remember we usually have sandwiches and milk, don’t we?”
Sadie looked at Marguerite with a warm and content expression, saying. “Madam, the Master said we’ll have a luxurious buffet breakfast from now on. He thinks we shouldn’t have too simple a breakfast every day. What do you think, Madam?”
Sadie was smiling brightly, and Marguerite felt a sudden warmth in her heart.
She was never keen on just dry bread and milk. Could it be that Frederick was accommodating her habits?
