Fortunately for Tatiana, the slap didn’t sting that much because
Mason hadn’t fully recovered.
However, there was a red mark on her cheek.
“You slapped me! How could you slap me! Who am I doing this for?
It’s all for you!” she sobbed.
She continued, “I know that you admire Ethan. Back then, you were afraid that it would be difficult for him to stand on his feet alone, so
you pushed Yale up. You chose Yale because Linus was away from
“I know how much you approve of Ethan all these years. If we can make him our son-in-law, it can solve all of the problems. I’m not doing this for Krystal. I’m doing this for our family, for our families!
I’m also thinking about our future generation!”
“Still … you shouldn’t have resorted to such underhanded means.
What will he think of you in the future?”
“What will he think of me? He’s a divorced man, but we’re marrying our daughter to him. He’s not in the position to complain when even
we’re not saying anything.”
Mason took a sip of tea to calm himself down. “You’re being
“Mason, I know that you’re blaming me because this is not an honest
move. But what other ideas do we have? Things have come this far,
and we don’t have any other choice. Mason, we’re on the same team
She patted the back of his hand and added, “Mason, I’ll deal with the consequences for the deeds done. You don’t have to do anything. All you have to do is support me.”
“I will never acknowledge nor support such a plan.” He stood up and spared her a cold glance. “If Ethan were so easy to deal with, I wouldn’t have wasted so many years.”
“What do you mean?”
“Nothing. Some things aren’t as simple as you think they are.” He
turned around and left.
Tatiana and Mason had been sleeping in different rooms for a long
All this time, she assumed that he was simply exhausted from work.
But the truth was, he didn’t want to touch her at all.
That year, she drugged him. Apart from his lacking status, another reason why he went along with it was because he needed the Benson.
However, that didn’t mean that he could accept the incident. Even
after all these years, it was a thorn in his flesh.
Hence, they had been sleeping in separate rooms for over ten years
When he no longer needed the Benson family to consolidate hist
position, he stopped touching her.
This time, Tatiana used the same method on Ethan.
Considering how much Ethan loved Olivia, Mason reckoned that.
Ethan wouldn’t commit such a mistake..
Nevertheless, Tatiana didn’t agree with Mason.
The maid clearly heard someone making love in the room. How could
that be fake?
Now, all Tatiana had to do was wait for the morning sun to rise.
In fact, she was satisfied with the idea of Ethan becoming her son-in-
law. Aside from the fact that he had an ex-wife and children, he was a
She thought, “It’s not like I can’t overlook that. Men need experience
to learn how to love someone, don’t they?”
She was more excited than Krystal, so she slept late.
In the end, she slept for only four hours. As soon as the sky
brightened, the maid woke her up.
She had an important mission to do today-to catch Ethan and
Krystal together on the scene.
Tatiana called for Mason and Linus early in the morning.
Linus didn’t know what was going on at the moment. “Mom, I haven’t
finished my morning exercise yet. Where are you taking me to?”
“Of course, it’s somewhere important.”
“Aren’t we heading to Krystal’s room? I bet she hasn’t woken up yet. Is
there something you want to talk with her about?”
She scoffed at her foolish son. Just zip it and watch me ”
She motioned for the maid to open the door. The latter nodded and
knocked on the door
