"Have you seen him? Isn't my son-in-law a handsome young man? He is much better than that carpenter, isn't he?" Jina asked Kay, putting on a smirk. "I advise you to pay more attention to yourself. Don't bother yourself with my daughter's marriage, " Jina continued triumphantly.

Kay stared at Aron in confusion. He looked very familiar, but she couldn't recall where she had met him before.

Jina walked away to greet other neighbors complacently. "Today is my mother's birthday. Please join us for dinner if you're free, " she said to them, as she gave some gifts away.

'The more, the merrier, ' Jina thought to herself with delight.

"Sure!" the neighbors responded. They still looked down upon Jina, secretly, even though they took gifts from her.

Soon Jina had finished handing out all the gifts. When she was about to go inside, she heard the honking of car horns from a far distance. She turned around and caught sight of Becky and Mandy inside the car.

Dressed like a highborn lady, Mandy greeted neighbors with a smile while getting out of the car. Her eyes, however, were full of contempt.

She always considered herself to be superior than the rest of them. Every time she came back, it would remind her that once she wasn't a rich lady but just a country bumpkin from the impoverished mountains.

That's why she rarely came back.

This time only Becky and Mandy showed up. Mandy's husband had only come here once; at his wedding ceremony with Mandy.

"Mom, I'll go inside first, " Becky said to Mandy. Becky had driven Mandy here. As soon as she got out of the car, she saw Aron's car and felt uncomfortable. Now she just wanted to hide and avoid being seen by somebody else.

"Wait, Becky. Come here, " Mandy stopped Becky, gesturing with her finger to come to her. Mandy was sensitive about her reputation too. Therefore, she had intended to show her daughter off to the neighbors. However, Becky walked into the house directly as if she didn't hear Mandy's words.

Mandy gave an awkward smile. However, the neighbors weren't annoyed at Becky's i

mean that. I..." Isla muttered. 'Well, I give up. You wins, ' Isla thought.

"Come on. Didn't you say that you wanted to show me around?" Aron softened his voice.

Soon Isla walked out of the back door with Aron. Mandy was having a conversation with Jina in front of the door when Isla left; she wasn't able to see Isla before she went out with Aron.

The big lake behind their house was a sight to behold. The scenery there was absolutely breathtaking.

"Jina, I've brought two dresses for you. I hope that you will like them, " Mandy said to Jina. Mandy had married a rich man, but she was still a mean person from the heart. Every time she came back, she only brought them something she had previously used, such as her tonic or the old clothes she no longer wanted.

She never bought any of gifts for them.

Jina used to turn a blind eye to her impolite attitude, but since Becky had framed Isla, she couldn't force herself to tolerate her anymore. "No, thanks. You should keep these good clothes for yourself. I am just a simple country folk who doesn't deserve your expensive clothes. If I really need new clothes, my son-in-law will buy them for me. I don't need yours, " Jina returned with a sneer.

"You... are so ungrateful, " Mandy said with discontent.

"What's going on?" a voice creeped in from behind. They looked and found Bette standing in front of them.
