The hubbub that filled the hall died down almost instantly the moment Terence arrived.

All eyes from across the room were watching him as he walked in.

Some people quickly sprung up from their seats to offer them to him.

"You're here, Mr. Terence. Feel free to take my seat if you want," a man ingratiated himself. "You can have mine if you would like to, Mr. Terence."

"Perhaps you'd like to take my seat?" another man politely said, "I've actually got a great seat and I've been winning today!" he went on and added.

"What are you trying to imply? Are you saying that Mr. Terence is someone who's afraid to lose?" another man was so quick to point a finger.

"No! I never said anything like that. I only meant well," the former said, trying to make it clear.

As these people were having arguments, Terence scanned the hall awhile, obviously looking for someone, until his eyes became fixated in a corner where a woman was sitting.

Now that he finally found her, his eyebrows had gotten knitted. At that moment, she was sporting a pair of unfashionable glasses with a black frame, which concealed her beauty and made her appear like such a plain woman.

Then, he strode toward her right away.

Shifting her glasses upward out of frustration, Carla threw her cards onto the table.

However, just as she was about to hand over her seat to Terence, the manager of the casino who had a black suit on suddenly appeared and was smiling from ear to ear.

"Good afternoon, Mr. Terence. I'm glad you could come. We're happy to have you here. We have a suite reserved upstairs just for you. If you would please follow me to your room?" the manager politely said after giving Terence a warm welcome.

Without saying a word, Terence simply nodded his head in response. Then, as a smile crept onto his face, he reached out his hand toward his wife.

With her eyes glued to his captivating smile, it took a second before she gave her hand to him.

Then, with a wave of her hand, she gestured toward Violet to follow them.

"Kaylee, will you be coming as well?"

From out of the blue, Terence politely asked the woman in a mandarin gown.

At this point, the woman was visibly looking at Carla from head to toe as she got up from her seat. "How silly of me! I didn't even realize this is your wife, Terence," she remarked, wearing quite a warm smile on her face.

"I see you've already met. Carla, this is Kaylee. Father's friend,"

Terence said, formally introducing the woman to Carla.

Carla could more or less guess right away that this woman was probably Edmund's lover.

Terence' late mother had already been gone for a number of years. So, it shouldn't be surprising for Edmund to be seeing another woman.

That being said, Carla wasn't really expecting to come across her in a rather inappropriate place.

After that, Terenc

as it might, everyone else thought that she simply had a stroke of luck this time and it would probably go against her on the next round, so they all thought of betting more.

Sadly for them, things didn't go as they expected it would. She actually managed to win twice in a row! This made her feel so thrilled that she couldn't help but give Terence a great big hug.

Now, she was able to proudly hold her head up high as she collected all the money she had just won.

Patting her chest due to so much exhilaration, she could now finally let out a sigh of relief.

That being said, she vowed never to get involved in such big gambles like this ever again.

It was almost midnight

by the time they walked out of the gambling house.

William went ahead and drove Violet home.

On the other hand, Terence and Carla decided to grab some midnight snacks with his friends before heading back to the Seaview Villa.

"Honey, I think you should pay father a visit tomorrow," Terence said after getting home and taking a shower. "The day of ancestor worship that's held once every three years is about to come, and father wants you to be the one to take care of it."

"What? Me again?"

Carla didn't seem to be looking forward to it when she heard this news, so she curled her lips. The last time Rhys got married, she also had to take care of everything, which left her feeling so worn out in the end.

Seeing the look on her face, Terence softly smiled at her and rested the palm of his hands against her shoulders. Then, he said, "I promise it's going to be different this time around. Ancestor worship has a fixed process anyway. You just have to follow a few simple rules. Everything's going to be a breeze."

"That's exactly what you told me last time,"

Carla grumbled.

"Well, I mean it this time,"

he said, putting on quite a convincing smile to give her a sense of assurance.
