"What is wrong with me watching my fiancee eating?" Charles retorted.

"Who is your fiancee? Marry whoever you want, but it is not going to be me."

"Tsk, tsk, tsk, My Lady, you are good at this game. You purposely made a sound to lure me down here and then you put on a cooking show. Are you trying to impress me by acting as an ideal wife? Well?"

Charles stroked his chin with a mocking smile playing at his lips. His sharp and clear eyes were not without a touch of disgust.

He began to have a hard time deciphering this girl. What was she up to?

Playing hard to get? Making sound on purpose? Was he referring to the flowerpot that Linda accidentally knocked over?

Only a few words popped out of Linda's mind.

Is he nuts?

In a fit of anger, Linda grabbed Charles by the collar of his shirt, "Charles Mu, do you think you can go for one minute without being this cocky? I am hungry and simply trying to find something to eat in the kitchen!"

Charles Mu grasped Linda's hand instead, and with a swing of his hand, he pulled Linda into his arms.

A whiff of intimate breath of Charles kept caressing Linda's ear.

Linda struggled to break free, but Charles's grip was simply too tight for a girl.

She thought Charles was beginning to enjoy bullying her.

"Let go of me. What are you doing! In broad daylight! Making a move on a decent lady!" Linda yelled out loud whilst trying to wriggle her way out of Charles's embrace.

"In broad daylight? Decent lady? You? For a girl showing up at the Crown Club to call herself a decent lady... I am not buying it..."

Mad as Linda was, she started to pick up a dangerous vibe. Was this Charles trying to do something to her in this kitchen?

Mustering all her strength, Linda pushed Charles back and ran back to her chamber without looking back.

Fearing Charles would tag along, she locked the door.

The thought of she being engaged to this obnoxious man gave Linda a headache.

But she was dead beat, and after the shower, she lay down on her warm and cozy bed fit for a princess and quickly dozed off to slumberland.

Next morning. a servant woke Linda up when she was still dreaming. The zoomed-up face of the servant scared the hell out of her.

She... Didn't she lock the door last night? It was strange that the servant could still manage to go in...

"My Lady, rise and shine. After we get you properly dressed, you should go down stairs for your breakfast and then Young Master Mu will bring you back to his place," the servant smiled at Linda.

Linda rubbed at her aching head. In order to have her vengeance, she had no choice. It was only an engagement with Charles Mu, not a wedding. She would have to be patient and wait until the Xia clan could get back on its feet and the mystery surrounding her biological mother's death was solved.

Once the Xia clan was strong again, Linda would have no trouble breaking off this engagement!

The servants were done primping Linda up, and after Linda finished washing, she went downstairs.

Down in the dinning room, Johnson Xia, May Shen and Lisa were all seated.

Even Charles was already seated at the table. The breakfast had already been served, yet no one was eating except Charles.

Seeing Linda coming down, Johnson Xia was beaming with smile.

"Linda, come on down. Come and eat the breakfast. After that you

will join Young Master Mu and go back to the Mu clan."

Linda very much liked to roll her eyes at him. Some father. Is it really necessary to remind her of this every time?

"Sister Linda, what is the hold up? Don't you see the whole family is waiting for you to have breakfast? What a ill-bred kid. No sense of punctuality at all."

Before Linda could speak, she was greeted by a hail of mockery from Lisa.

May Shen patted Lisa on the back of her hand while wearing a smile, and pretended to discipline her with a gentle rebuke, "Lisa, how could you speak to your sister like that. She is going to the Mu clan. As the saying goes, a married daughter is like poured water. Soon it will be difficult for you to talk to her."

Linda got the implication in her remarks.

After Linda's departure, Lisa would be the only daughter in the house.

Lisa was the pampered girl who had always been living with Johnson, and that May Shen was bound to spew venom again.

Over time, Johnson would probably forget about Linda.

And Linda would ended up being a pawn in the grand scheme of the Xia clan, nothing more.

Had May Shen not sent people to murder her, Linda would have let go all of it and leave those two alone.

But now, there was no way Linda would spare May Shen.

Linda's foster mother had always been very healthy and it was very odd that she should fall this ill. What really happened during that time? Linda was determined to get to the bottom of it.

"Yes, my mother died early. Please take care of my father when I am gone." Johnson was distressed to see that Linda's eyes began to well up with tears.

He scolded, "May, what is wrong with you? You should know better than Lisa. Linda can come home anytime she wants after she marries."

The face of May Shen turned pale as Johnson scolded her, yet she dared no say a word. After all, Johnson was still the man in the house.

"Really? Thank you, father." Acting all ecstatic, Linda held Johnson's arm and rubbed her face against it, which rekindled Johnson's fatherly love towards her.

He did felt an intense guilt for this long-lost daughter.


Leaning against the chair next to the dinning table, Charles enjoyed his breakfast as well as the "show" of Linda. His lips subconsciously broke out a smile and he stared at Linda for quite a while with his clear and deep eyes.

This girl... Interesting... She is as sharp and prickly as a little hedgehog, and yet she pretends to be an innocent little rabbit here.

After breakfast, a man sent by the Mu clan to pick up Linda and Charles Mu also arrived.

The person arrived was a young, good-looking man with a solemn face. He stood at the door in a respectful manner and said, "Young Master, My lady. It's time to go home. His lordship is expecting you two at home."

Charles Mu nodded, "well, we should take our leave then."

Linda was about to go to the Mu clan with Charles Mu. Although she did not want to go, it beat staying here watching those two's disgusting faces.

Outside the door of the villa parked a black Mercedes S600 sedan, which was followed by a row of other Mercedes.


Linda took a look at the car and started twitching her eyes. If she remembered correctly, the S600 is the bulletproof S-Class Mercedes sedan. This model is almost exclusively owned by political and business leaders worldwide.
