After Andrea left, Carla picked up her chopsticks and forced herself to eat some more.

Before, she would definitely have enjoyed the meal.

But now that she was in a strange place with unfamiliar people, she had lost her appetite despite the fact that her hosts were treating her well.

She, however, did finish the meal like it was a duty she had to perform. She then tried the dress on and found that it was the perfect size for her.

Carla knew that she couldn't whine about her situation since it was her own decision to come back here.

She had made her own choice and this meant that she couldn't complain about it even if everyone else did. There was no way out of it and she had to go through it no matter how tough it threatened to be.

It was deep into the night, but Carla couldn't sleep. She kept thinking about what Terence had told her and what Rainer had said.

Terence had wanted her to give up her inheritance from the Hua family.

Carla had understood Terence's intentions and she knew that he didn't care a cent about the Hua family.

At first, she hadn't cared about it either.

But as time passed, she changed her mind. Why would she give up her inheritance?

She hadn't asked for it; the Hua family had forced her to take it. But now that she had it, why would she even think of throwing it away?

She could definitely take advantage of that and take charge of Hua Group shares. And when the right time came, she could come up with some excuse and cancel the engagement with Noah.

She could then marry Terence as the daughter of the Hua family.

Although Terence didn't care if she was rich, Carla still thought that being rich wouldn't do her any harm.

There was nothing bad with being the daughter of the Hua family.

The An family was at the top of the list of rich families in JA City. If she could be the daughter of the Hua family, she would be a good match for Terence. That would save her and Terence from a lot of trouble, mostly of persuading people around them that they made a perfect couple.

If everything would only end up as she wished, then all the difficulties she had lived through would automatically disappear into the past.

Carla felt better as she thought this. A bright future might not be as easily accessible as she wished, but as long as she firmly held on to the idea, she believed that she would realize it someday.

After all, she was Carla and whining was not her style.

She was brave enough to earn what she deserved. And that was exactly what she was going to do.

It was as if sleep was eluding her only to help her figure all of this out. Once she had, it wasn't long before she became drowsy.

It was two o'clock in the morning by the time she finally fell asleep.

But de

loved him to no end and had dreamed of their engagement for so long. But things weren't always as one expected.

After the announcement, the guests headed to the hotel for lunch.

"Thank you all for coming to take part in Carla and Noah's engagement. Although Allen is gone, we still have Carla and Noah, and every one of you. I believe the Hua Group will keep developing and getting better and better!"

Andrea greeted everyone as she stood at the front of the hall, holding a glass of wine and staring fondly at her beloved daughter and son.

The guests were all closely related to the Hua family. So they all knew that Carla was actually Allen and Andrea's only biological daughter, who had gotten lost when she was a kid.

Noah, the CEO of the Hua Group, was one of their adopted sons.

His capabilities and ambition were obvious and the talk of the town. It was a given that the Hua Group would become even steadier once he married the only biological daughter of the Hua Group.

"Andrea, why don't you marry Carla off to Noah right away since they are so in love? Then we could be drinking to their wedding right now,"

Albert said, raising his glass.

"We did think about this. But they didn't want to get married right after Allen passed. So I'm afraid that you'll have to wait until next year to drink to their marriage,"

Andrea explained, clinking her glass to Albert's as she turned to the guests with a smile.

There weren't any rules that they needed to obey, but Andrea felt it would be fitting to show respect to Allen and give dignity to his death by postponing the wedding.

"Noah, where's Callie? It's almost time to propose a toast," Andrea asked as she walked up to Noah.

Noah checked his watch, looked around, and said, "I think she's upstairs changing. Let me check. She must be done now anyway."
