Olivia slept soundly that night. The view of the snowscape from her room was amazing. It had 270-degree panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, and the motorized curtains would draw automatically.
As Olivia gazed at the white snow outside falling onto the white walls
and black tiles, she felt like she was teleported back into ancient
After a simple washing up, Olivia put on her mask again. Then, she opened the door, heading out to prepare breakfast for Mason.
A chill quickly enveloped her when she stepped out of the room. She
felt so cold that she sneezed. The deeper it was in the winter months,
the colder it would get.
Olivia gazed in the distance, thinking about Connor.
Ethan had told her that Connor was sent to an island for training, so
she couldn’t see him for now.
When spring came around next year, Connor would have a month off.
Connor must have gotten much taller.
Linus was wearing thin short sleeves as he did aerobic exercises in
the yard. The tight-fitting T-shirt outlined his perfect figure, and his
handsome face was filled with sweat.
“You’re up very early, Mr. Linus.”
“It’s a habit now.”
Olivia nodded and turned to head toward the kitchen, but Linus called
out to her. “By the way, Vanessa, the Heath family is holding a
banquet tomorrow night.”
Compared to Krystal, Linus was considerably older, so his marriage.
was more important than hers.
Some young ladies from prestigious families were probably invited to the banquet tomorrow night so that Linus could go on blind
“Oh, shall I stay out of sight, then?”
“You’re getting the wrong idea. Father was able to escape death because of you. The banquet is also held to celebrate Father’s
recovery. You must participate.”
“I’ll accept the invitation, then.”
Having learned their lesson, Krystal and Tatiana didn’t cause any trouble for Olivia in those two days. Olivia lived quite comfortably.
In the evening, Krystal was making preparations for the banquet at night. She not only focused her effort on skincare and beauty treatment, but she also hired someone to style her.
“Hasn’t my evening gown arrived?”
“It’s here, Ms. Heath.”
A maid handed her a white evening gown. The gown had a diagonal
slit, so while it looked reserved, it still had some sexiness to it.
“Hold on, what’s that in your hands?”
“Mr. Linus has prepared this evening gown for Vanessa.”
Krystal snorted. “How is she worthy of a tailor-made gown?”
Peering at it, she saw that it was a pretty gown with a pearly sheen. It was made of a different fabric from the one she was wearing.
If Olivia wore that gown and stood under the lights, everyone would be focused on her.
Krystal was indignant. What right did that wench have to hog a
“I want this one.”
“B-But I won’t be able to explain this to Vanessa. Please don’t make
things difficult for me, Ms. Heath.”
Krystal randomly grabbed a black dress from her wardrobe, which still
had its tag attached. Then, she tossed it into the box. “Just give her
Her skin was slightly off-color, so she didn’t look good in black.
Three years ago, when Krystal saw Olivia’s real face at the hospital,
she was finally aware of the huge gap between them.
After that, she asked Linus to transfer her to an office position. Then, she took great care of her body and lost quite some weight.
Even though she didn’t have Olivia’s looks, her figure was more slender and graceful compared to three years ago, and her skin had
cleared up quite a bit.
If she wore the shimmering beige gown, it would complement her already tall figure, especially when paired with the makeup done by a professional makeup artist.
She wouldn’t look ethereal, but after some serious dressing up,
Krystal would still look quite good. She twirled in front of the mirror,
Now, she could already wear high heels like it was nothing. Her
movements had also gotten more feminine. She believed that this
would be enough for her to charm Ethan!
Tatiana dismissed the maids before taking Krystal’s hand and saying,
“With your reputation on the line, you have to succeed tonight. There’s
no room for failure!”
