"Callie, how dare you ignore the matriarch's order!"

Lucia walked closer to Carla and Steven. With each step, she could feel her fury and resentment build up. She was furious to see them together.

She was supposed to be the matriarch. It was her who was supposed to be with Steven. Why did Carla have to take both of them away from her?

Carla smirked as she fixed her stare at Lucia.

"Lucia, how dare you call me Callie? Yu Sea City is known for respecting our seniors. According to our customs, you should call me older sister.

Even though grandma hasn't made my identity public, I'm still your cousin. Do you understand?"

Carla had never thought being the eldest granddaughter would have its perks.

She used to wish for an older brother or sister. It would have been nice to be taken care of for once, or to have someone share the responsibility with her.

But since coming to Yu Sea City, she realized that being older had its advantages.

"Don't flatter yourself. I'm the eldest daughter in the Yu family. Who do you think you are?"

Lucia confidently said, but her pale face betrayed her nerves.

"Really? If you don't see me as your older cousin, why did you send people to greet me? Speaking of which, I want to thank you for your kind and considerate behavior,"

Carla whispered in Lucia's ear with a smile.

"What do you mean?"

Lucia's face turned even paler.

"What, you don't know? There was a problem with my boat. If you hadn't sent Carlota to meet me, I wouldn't have made it in one piece!"

Carla blinked her eyes innocently. Her smile grew wider.

"What? What did you say?"

Wide eyed with fear and trepidation, Lucia could only stare at Carla. Anger and embarrassment were violently mixing in her bloodstream like a potent potion.

Carla waved her hand at Carol, gesturing for her to bring Carlota in.

"… Lucia!

Help me!" As soon as Carlota saw Lucia, she immediately cried out for help.

Lucia could tell Carlota's hands were tied behind her back.

"Relax, Lucia. I will release her as long as you call me older sister in front of everyone. Or, would you prefer that I tell them about my wonderful journey here?"

Carla dared, raising her eyebrows as she stopped Lucia from moving towards Carlota.

Everyone around them knew what Carlota h

d to lead her away.

He walked Carla back to her room.

Once inside, Carla could finally let out a sigh of relief. She had been dizzy from the wine she had consumed and the exhaustion. It had been such a long day.

She took a look at Steven and said, "Thank you, Steven. You can go back to your room and get some rest, too."

Steven looked at his watch before he moved closer to her.

"You can get some rest in the afternoon, but you must mingle and rub elbows at night. Everyone will be coming to the party tonight. I know you don't enjoy crowds like this, but you have to at least make an appearance."

Carla nodded, and leaned on the soft cushion of the sofa. "I know. That's why we're here. I know."

Then she noticed that Steven's face started to turn red.

"Are you okay? What's wrong with your face? Are you drunk?"

Carla asked.

Steven touched his face and shook his head. "I'm fine."

Carla shook her head in disbelief and moved closer to him. She reached out and touched his forehead, "Gosh, you're burning up!

Why did you even drink all that wine for me?"

Looking at her worried face, Steven curled his lips and held her hand. "I already took something for the fever. Don't worry about it. Besides, how could I ever let you get drunk again?"

Even through the fever, the memories of the last time she was drunk couldn't help but bring a smile to his face.

Sure, he would enjoy to see her that drunk again. But now was not the right time. No, tonight was not a night to make slip ups and mistakes.
