Marguerite was totally down for her granny moving into the mansion, she’d take care of her no sweat, no need for anyone to remind her.
But Yuna wasn’t cool with Laverne living with Marguerite. What if the cat got out of the bag?
“Granny, you should stay with us. You just got better, we’d be gutted if something happened to you.” Her tone was too eager, and she didn’t realize how frantic she sounded.
Frederick shot her a look and Chuck chimed in, none too happy. “Ms. Yuna, what kind of trouble are you talking about? Are you saying Mr. Winston can’t take care of a patient?” Yuna went pale, quickly waving her hands, “No, no, Freddie, that’s not what I meant.”
“Well, then there’s nothing left to talk about.” Frederick glanced at his watch, coldly saying to Chuck, “Get some b*dyguards to keep an eye on things. I’ll pick granny up as scheduled tomorrow.”
Yuna turned to Zoe, desperately tugging at her sleeve, her eyes pleading. “Quick, think of something.”
But what could they possibly do?
Mr. Winston was standing right there, any more objections would spill the beans.
Soon it was lights out at the hospital.
No one could stay in the room, so after everyone left, Frederick had some b*dyguards stand guard at the door.
Once home, Yuna threw a fit, pacing anxiously in the living room, “Why didn’t you guys stop her? You just let her move into the mansion?”
Ablett widened his eyes, “With Mr. Winston standing right there, how were we supposed to stop her? Stop throwing tantrums, it’s your half–a*sed job that left us picking up the pieces! Dumba*s!”
Zoe, feeling sorry for her daughter, angrily shoved him.
“Why are you blowing up at her. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, Laverne moving into the mansion is good. We were worried Yuna wouldn’t get a chance to get close to Mr. Winston, now we’ve got a reason. Plus, with Marguerite looking after her, she’ll probably drive her up the wall. Hahaha!”
Hearing this, Yuna’s eyes lit up, and she excitedly hugged Zoe’s arm, “Right. Let them fight each other.”
Just thinking about it made Yuna feel ma*sively better.
Poor Marguerite probably wouldn’t believe it in a million years, the only family she ever had would torment her like this.
Meanwhile, at Sapphire Valley Estates.
Her granny’s sudden memory loss had Marguerite all cut up, she didn’t say a word on the ride home, just quietly crying.
Her granny was her only family, and now her granny didn’t remember her.
Earlier at the hospital, she saw the Lockwood family surrounding her grandmother, and her grandmother was affectionately holding Yuna’s hand.
Even though Marguerite knew the Lockwood’s care for granny was all a show because Frederick was there, it still hurt.
Her granny’s affection was genuine, but she didn’t even glance at Marguerite.
They looked like a real happy family.
Marguerite was heartbroken, she could hardly breathe from the pain.
She just wanted to lock herself in her room, curl up under the covers, and let it all out. So she headed straight for her room the moment she got home.
But no sooner had she stepped into the bedroom and was about to close the door than Frederick, in the doorway, grabbed Marguerite by the wrists and then pinned her hard against the wall
