Moreover, Evelyn met all of Stella’s conditions for Eugene’s future bride.
However, all of this had nothing to do with her anymore.
Melanie said calmly, “Please accept my best wishes.”
Evelyn sounded arrogant when she said, “With your family background, you’ll never get a chance to marry Eugene.”
Melanie did not want to waste time dealing with Evelyn. She walked away as if she had not heard what Evelyn said.
Reny, who was following behind her, was the one who snapped, “Marry him if you’re good enough. Who cares?!”
Melanie’s mood was down as she made her way to the parking lot. She stopped and said, “I want to return to the North district.”
The house there had not been cleaned after being vandalized by those loan sharks.
Stephen blurted out, “That place isn’t safe.”
Melanie said, “I want to clean up the mess.”
“I’ll go with you.” Xander’s deep voice sounded.
He looked at Melanie. “I’ll go with you if you insist on going. We’re worried that something like last time might happen again.”
After pausing for a second, he said, “We’ll be less worried with me accompanying you.”
Recalling the knocking on the door and on the windows, Melanie pondered for a moment.
Just as she was about to nod, the window of the black Maybach beside them rolled down its window.
Melanie was in a daze as she walked, so she did not notice the car.
Eugene’s expression was cold as usual. His hand was on the steering wheel as he glanced casually at the group, looking displeased.
Melanie was startled when her eyes met his, but she retracted her gaze quickly.
Eugene squinted his eyes slightly as he tapped the steering wheel with his finger. His jawline looked perfect from Melanie’s angle. He had his head lifted slightly, seemingly pondering something.
Melanie recalled bumping into Evelyn when she saw Eugene. Evelyn had told her she was about to get engaged to Eugene.
It seemed that Eugene was here with Evelyn and Peyton.
Melanie did not look at him again.
Turning around, she asked Xander, “Can you accompany me to the North district?”
Xander naturally agreed. He helped Melanie get into the car beside the Maybach.
Stephen seemed busy lately. He left in his car after reminding Xander of a few things to be careful of.
Eugene sat in the car as his annoyance grew upon looking at those cars leaving one after another.
The phone he placed on the dashboard rang. It was from Cedric.
When Eugene answered the call, he heard Cedric asking, “Have you arrived?”
Eugene grunted casually in response.
Cedric snapped, “You know why Peyton is here. Your mom and I think Evelyn is a good choice. Go get to know her further.”
Eugene scoffed and mocked, “Is Evelyn a good choice or is her family background a good choice?”
“Eugene! We’re doing this for your sake. Don’t be ungrateful.”
As the roar came through the phone, Eugene rubbed his forehead. This move happened to cover his face.
“Do you have anything else you want to say?”
Melanie headed to the city’s North district but did not return to her house.
Xander drove her to a church.
He got out of the car and walked toward Melanie’s side to open her door. Leaning over, he said, “I’ll take you to a place first.”
