Sean jolted upright like a lit bomb, ready to charge forward. Despite his urge to charge forward, Tatiana clutched his hand so tightly that her fingers turned pale. “Don’t, Sean.”
David remained a Schmidt, and Tatiana had the Taylor family’s
backing. What did Sean have? Tatiana couldn’t let Sean get too entangled for her.
However, before Sean could make a move, Alyssa swiftly stepped in
and kicked David in the face.
Alyssa’s kick knocked out two of David’s front teeth, leaving his mouth bleeding and a sizable hole in his upper gums.
Jasper gasped silently, swallowing hard. Reflecting on his childhood memories of a movie called “The Henpecked Husband”, Alyssa’s beauty was on par with the female lead, though the female lead was never as brutal.
As Jasper pondered this, his eyes narrowed, and a smile graced his lips. Alyssa’s unpredictable and straightforward nature struck him as adorable.
“Hey, your sister is so scary. She gets physical the moment she hears something displeasing. Her temper is really something else.”
Julien’s hair stood on end as he witnessed how aggressive Alyssa was. He tilted his body, and his arm brushed against Jonah’s side. Hey, shouldn’t you be worried for your brother-in-law? Maybe invest in a better life insurance policy for Mr. Beckett on their wedding day. Take good care of him.”
“Are you bored, Dr. Lovelace? Why are you caring about something that is none of your business?” Jonah sarcastically mocked. Closing

“Alyssa, you’re just venting your anger recklessly.”
David ground his bloody teeth, struggling to speak clearly. “You have no proof… You can’t do anything… But you and Jasper had beaten me up good. I will make sure you spend the rest of your life in jail! Your name will be tarnished!”
“Is this all you’ve got? Do you think I will be scared? Did you think I’m that timid?”
Alyssa was sassy and arrogant. She curled her red lips into a cold smile as she cracked her knuckles, making a crisp sound. “If you make a noise again, I’ll pull all your teeth out. If you don’t believe me, try me.”
David didn’t scare her. On the contrary, David was so terrified and immediately shut up.
“Alyssa… Jasper … You’ve done a lot for me…” Tatiana murmured weakly, leaning into Sean’s arms. Tearfully, she shook her head. That’s enough for today. I think it’s enough…”
Timid as she was, Tatiana was more concerned about not dragging her beloved family into more trouble
After all, she had to marry into the Schmidt family. She had given up for the most part a long time ago. Even if a knife were to stab at her, she wouldn’t complain.
She couldn’t change her fate.
“Taty, what are you talking about? Someone had mistreated you. This is a serious matter for me and your brother-in-law. How can we let
Jasper was breathing heavily. He gritted his teeth and shouted angrily, “Taty, over our dead body!”
The mention of “brother-in-law” stirred a tumultuous emotion in his
He loved Alyssa dearly and treated Alyssa’s sister as his own. He couldn’t forgive himself if he stayed on the sidelines. He vowed not to rest until his last dying breath!
A warm feeling surged in Alyssa’s heart when she heard Jasper refer to Tatiana as Taty. She and Sean turned to Jasper gratefully.
The situation reached a stalemate, and as David gloated, Julien. calmly approached Tatiana. He softly asked, “Ms. Tatiana, I know you’re not in a good state right now, but to prove your innocence, I need you to think hard and recall what happened.
“What happened before you lost consciousness? Is there anything that you missed out on? Don’t leave out any detail, no matter how insignificant.”
Jonah had never seen Julien so gentle before. When Julien had asked for a reward from him, he was like a male version of Alyssa-e coy, with a hint of anger. It was a rare and refreshing sight that a soft and fuzzy feeling in Jonah’s chest.
