Olivia met with Avery’s gaze. She felt a surge of emotions, which boiled down to guilt. She had promised to donate her kidney. Avery was already on the operating table, anesthetized. But she was taken away by Ethan at the last second.
She didn’t even get to apologize to him. Her number was then changed after returning to Aldenvine. She was unable to contact Avery, so she still owed him an apology.
She didn’t expect to see him here. She thought he had returned to his country and wondered why he was back in Aldenvine.
Olivia felt remorse, but Avery didn’t have much of a reaction after he saw her. He nodded at her with a smile and greeted her.
Lydia was still causing a scene, but she noticed that Olivia wasn’t even looking at her but at a man. She became even angrier.
“Who are you looking at, you pregnant bitch? You can’t even keep it in your pants when you’re pregnant? Who are you flirting with?”
“Miss, you should watch your mouth,” Cyril reminded her expressionlessly.
“Watch my mouth? You should ask her to watch herself. Who knows whose baby she’s carrying? But she’s flirting with a man in public. She’s probably the mistress of some old man, right?”
Lydia didn’t notice that the crowd was looking at her like she was an idiot. Then, a voice came from the crowd. “Have you said enough?”
Ethan had arrived, followed by Kelvin and Brent. Their presence shocked the crowd. They fell silent as they made way for Ethan and company.
Ethan’s gaze fell on Olivia. Even though his people would send him photos of her every day, it had been three months since he saw her in person. Her temperament was gentler after she became a
Ethan intentionally hid from Olivia during her first pregnancy, so he never noticed her change then. Now that he saw her with a swollen belly and her hair up, emotions surged within him. The girl who was full of smiles had become a woman.
Olivia didn’t speak, but Lydia approached Ethan with a smile. “You’re finally here, Ethan! It’s that pregnant woman. She’s the one who bullied me because she has more people on her side. You have to teach her a lesson for me.”
Everyone was shocked, even Olivia. No one knew he had a cousin like Lydia. Olivia had heard that Ethan’s mother was mentally ill and had been staying overseas. She didn’t even get to meet Ethan’s mother when she got married to him.
Olivia also heard that Ethan had some uncles and aunts, but most of them were overseas as well. Only one of his aunts was in Ordchester. Olivia didn’t ask, and Ethan didn’t explain, Olivia just realized
that Ethan’s aunt married into the Olson family.
It was an exciting turn of events.
Olivia raised an eyebrow to look at Ethan. “So, you’re the cousin she mentioned who can ignore the law and keep her from trouble even if she beats me until I miscarry?”
Ethan’s expression turned stormy when he heard that. He withdrew his hand from Lydia’s arms and said, “You wanted to hit her?”
Lydia had been too carefree in Ordchester. She shrugged and said, “That’s right. She was being a bitch. She…”
Ethan slapped her in the face. The loud and crisp sound of the slap attracted everyone’s attention. Even Olivia’s eyes widened.
Ethan was a very chivalrous man. He would never lay a hand on a woman. But he just slapped Lydia in front of so many people.
Olivia slapped Lydia’s right cheek, and Ethan slapped her left cheek. So, both her cheeks were swollen
Ethan glared at her icily and said, “Apologize to your cousin-in-law, now!”
Lydia was dumbstruck. The crowd felt satisfied as they witnessed the turn of events.
“W-What did you say? This pregnant woman is…”
Ethan said slowly, “She’s your cousin-in-law. And I’m the old man you said she was with.”
