In fact, Marguerite was aware all along that Frederick was investigating Laverne.
Back then, she accidentally let her mask slip and the man mistook her for Yuna, saying that he was looking for Laverine.
Marguerite never interfered, knowing that once Frederick found her grandma, the Lockwood family could no longer use her as leverage.
Now that he had found her grandma, and once she regained consciousness, her ties with the Lockwood family would be crystal clear.
Since he would find out sooner or later, she might as well spill the beans.
The fact that she and Yuna were twins, as well as her being forced to wear a mask, she’d tell him everything.
“What do you mean?” His handsome face turned pale, and he pressed on, asking, “Explain.”
Marguerite stared at him, “Actually, Yuna and I are…”
A loud door slam cut Marguerite off. She was about to say that she and Yuna were twins, but her words got stuck in her throat. Then, a heartbreaking cry filled the room:
Before they could see who it was, Yuna rushed to Laverne’s bedside, followed by a sobbing Zoe.
“Wake up, grandma! It’s me, Yuna! What’s wrong with you? Open your eyes and look at me!”
“Mom, Ablett and I came to see you. What happened to you? …We’re too late…”
The room was filled with noise. Chuck walked in from the doorway, Frederick asked with a frown, “What took you so long?”
Chuck wiped off some sweat, looking at Yuna and the others, “Ablett said there was a traffic jam on the way, so we were delayed.”
“Did you tell them about the old lady’s condition?”
Chuck shook his head, “No, I didn’t dare. I was afraid they’d be shocked.”
“So why are they crying as soon as they walked in?”
It was as if they had known about Laverne’s condition beforehand.
Chuck thought for a moment. “Maybe my serious expression gave it away.”
Frederick waved his hand dismissively, “Close the door.”
“Okay. Mr. Winston.”
Yuna’s cry grew louder, so loud it was heart–wrenching. If one didn’t know the situation, they would think that this mother and daughter were mourning a family member.
But in reality, they were crying their hearts out.
After all, they didn’t expect the old lady to be so lucky to have made it through.
Seeing this, Marguerite was furious.
When her grandma needed help the most, this family was nowhere to be found. They were so heartless that they let her sacrifice herself without lifting a finger to save her grandma.
Now that Frederick had found her grandma, they started playing the victim in front of him?
Why should her grandma be used by them?
Marguerite stepped forward, pushing Yuna and Zoe aside, and stood guard by Laverne’s bedside.
“What’s the point of your fake tears? My grandma has been lying in the hospital for so long, sick for over half a year, and unconscious for three full months. Did you guys chip in at all during that time? Who are you crying for now?”
Yuna was panicked. Zoe subtly kicked her, bringing her back to her senses. She pointed at Marguerite with disbelief, playing the victim.
“Marguerite, you’re so cruel. You snuck my grandma away, do you know how long we’ve been looking for her? You were with my grandma, why didn’t you take care of her?”
Marguerite was confused by Yuna’s words.
“What are you talking about, Yuna? I’ve lived with my grandma since I was a kid, why would I need to sneak her away? I really don’t know how long you’ve been looking for her. because you simply didn’t care.”
Marguerite’s voice trembled with sadness.
She pointed at her chest, overwhelmed with grief.
“It was me who begged you guys to save my grandma, and to help pay for her treatment. But what did you do? You asked me to…”
“Marguerite, stop talking nonsense!”
Marguerite was cut off by Yuna.
If Frederick found out that Marguerite had slept with him, wouldn’t he know the truth?
“Laverne is my grandma, when did she become yours? Besides, Frederick knows how much I miss her!
I’ve told him more than once how much I want to see her. If it weren’t for Frederick helping me find her, were you planning to hide my grandma forever?”
Yuna raised her voice, acting like a madwoman. Whenever she felt guilty, she would raise her voice, hoping to overpower the other party.
Seeing the situation getting out of hand, Chuck quickly stepped in to mediate:
“Marguerite, Ms. Yuna, this is a hospital, we shouldn’t disturb the other patients. I just want to know, who is Laverne’s real granddaughter?”
