“Winston, where’s Lyse?” Unwilling to give up, Victor craned his neck. to look outside.
“No need to look. Lyse is injured and can’t sit for a long time to talk to guests. I asked her to rest at home. She won’t be coming tonight,” Winston replied indifferently.
“Winston, how can you do this? You promised to bring Lyse last time. How can you go back on your words? Besides, we’re not just guests. We’re going to be family.” Victor kept chattering away, but he was confused.
Winston sat down. “If you truly care about Lyse, you would let her recover properly and not bother her.”
Before the horse racing event, Victor had a private meeting with Winston. They had a great conversation, and Winston really liked Jameson. He had promised to make Alyssa marry Jameson, makin her the Schmidt family’s daughter-in-law.
At that time, Victor even considered David’s marriage. After all, David was also his son, whom he doted on other than his firstborn.
So, he wanted to seize the opportunity to double the joy by matching Tatiana, Winston and Lyla’s daughter, to David.
Initially, considering Tatiana’s background, he believed she was far from suitable for David.
However, now that David was left with just one leg, he no longer had the qualifications to be picky. Surprisingly, Tatiana, whom he had always looked down upon, had become more pleasing to the eye.
That was why he eagerly brought David here tonight to meet Tatiana.
However, tonight puzzled him. Winston, who had accepted Jameson as his son-in-law, didn’t bring Alyssa along. Also, his attitude seemed colder than before.
Disappointed, Jameson’s face darkened, and he downed a glass of
Tonight, Tatiana wore an elegant white lace dress, accentuating her skin. As a dance student, her figure was graceful, with an
astonishingly beautiful posture. The exposed pair of legs were slender, resembling a flawless piece of art.
On ordinary days, Alyssa’s beauty and presence were too breathtaking, causing Tatiana to be easily overlooked.
Now, it seemed that these sisters were both beauties, each with their own beauty.
David had been recovering in the hospital for a long time. Apart from
a few nurses, he hadn’t seen a woman in ages. When he saw the graceful Tatiana, his eyes couldn’t help but fixate.
As a fellow man, Jameson easily saw through David’s thoughts, prompting a cold smirk.
Winston showed little appetite as the delicious food and wine were. being served.
Meanwhile, Tatiana sat beside David. He was attentive to her, serving food on her plate and pouring wine. However, she just responded. politely and didn’t eat the food he served.
In Tatiana’s mind and heart, there’s only Sean. She felt it was a sin to even glance at another man.
“Winston, now that the horse racing event is over, about what we discussed-”
Victor’s words were cut short as Winston interrupted in a deep voice. Victor, I know you really like Lyse. You’ve held her since she was a child, treating her no less than your daughter.
“I also know that Jimmy has feelings for Lyse, and he’s dutiful and considerate. He’s the one I really like. But matters of the heart can’t be forced. Lyse has a man she loves, and you should know who that is.”
This revelation caught the Schmidts off guard.
Jameson’s deep eyes flashed with a sudden intensity, blending with a predatory crimson. His features turned tense like an ice sculpture. He exuded an icy chill even when he stayed still.
Witnessing Jameson’s spectacular expression, David couldn’t help but laugh.
He knew that Jameson dreamed of marrying Alyssa and becoming Winston’s son-in-law to control the Schmidt Group and challenge Josh.
That would never happen now.
“Winston, what do you mean? Didn’t we agree on this?”
The furious Victor frowned, and his face flushed with anger. “W known each other for over 30 years. How have I treated you? I’ve be a better friend to you than your brother!
“Back then, when you were ambushed, with a sniper lying in wait on the rooftop, we didn’t even know where the shooter was. Yet I stood in front of you, shielding you from the bullets!”
