The next morning, the whole city woke up bathed in the rosy glow of dawn.
Just after everyone had finished breakfast, Yuna strolled into the mansion blissfully.
As soon as Sadie opened the door, she threw herself at Frederick, eager to hug him and show off in front of Marguerite.
However, she was stopped in her tracks by Laverne, “Yuna, where do you think you’re going? I’m right here!”
Yuna was left red in the face. She had used the old lady as an excuse to come to the mansion, and if Freddie found out that her real motive was to get into bed with him, she’d be kicked out in no time flat.
With no other choice, she had to hug Laverne and put on a fake sweet act, “Grandma, I didn’t see you just now. Did you sleep well last night? Did anyone bully you?”
Laverne waved her off, “Marguerite has been taking good care of me! Yuna, I’m just living it up here.”
Upon hearing this, Yuna was so pissed off she could’ve had a fit. She wished her grandma would just drop dead!
Her whole family was walking on eggshells at Diamond Crest Estates while the old lady moved into the mansion of her dreams and lived her own life.
So last night she didn’t torture Marguerite at all? And they didn’t tear each other apart?
Yuna forced out an awkward smile. Sneakily, she whispered in Laverne’s ear.
“Grandma, Marguerite has a bad temper. If she bullies you, don’t take any shit from her.”
Laverne looked shocked and her voice rose in confusion, “What? You’re saying Marguerite has a bad temper? No way! She’s a really nice girl and she works hard. She is even more meticulous than the servants at home! Yuna, don’t worry! She won’t bully me!”
Yuna didn’t expect Laverne to have such a loud voice and blurt out all her scheming. She panicked all at once.
She thought her grandma was deliberately trying to embarrass her, but Laverne looked genuinely innocent.
The man suddenly jerked his head, and there’s a tinge of weariness in his sharp eyes. That sent a chill down her spine.
“If you’re here to see your grandma, then watch your mouth. Stop blabbering and badmouthing others.”
With that, the man strolled towards the backyard.
At that moment, Yuna clearly felt the man’s disdain for her.
Yuna was so desperate that she was running after him, “Freddie, where are you going?”
“Yuna!” Laverne stepped in front of her, blocking her path, “The mountain’s flowers are blooming, so take me there.”
Damn it! Nobody wanted to see some flowers with that old tramp. Yuna thought.
Freddie went to the backyard so no one was around. It was the perfect opportunity for her to drug him.
“Grandma, let Marguerite go with you.” Yuna’s eyes darted past Laverne’s shoulder, anxiously looking towards the backyard.
“I don’t want Marguerite, I want you! You’re my granddaughter, who else should accompany me if not you?”
Yuna tried to refuse but noticed Chuck was watching her..
She wasn’t afraid of Chuck, but this tub of lard was Freddie’s sidekick. He’d report what she did in the mansion to Frederick in detail,
Therefore, she couldn’t let anyone think she was unfilial.
Yuna was a bit disheartened.
She still had a whole day, and she believed she’d get a chance to drug Freddie!
“Alright, Granny, I’ll take you to see the mountain’s flowers!”
Her eyes softened, but her teeth gritted.
