Consuela couldn't bear the allegations being hurled at her anymore. Though her lips were trembling, she shouted, "I said it wasn't me! I do not want to marry you! I would never want to marry you!"

If she couldn't marry the man she loved the most, why the hell would she waste her time trying to get a man she didn't even know? Harry...

The thought of the man she loved again dimmed the light on Consuela's face. Richie, oblivious of her plight, took this as a sign of her admission that she had indeed orchestrated everything.

"Seems like you're still playing tricks with me! How many times do I have to tell you? Your means will not work on me!" Disdain was written all over his face.

Consuela took a deep breath, raised her voice and snapped back, "Are you deaf? How many times do I have to tell you that I have nothing to do with what happened between you and me? Whether it was the accident in the hotel or the porn photo scandal, I know nothing!"

She felt very aggrieved. It seemed that no matter how much she explained to literally anyone, nobody would believe her. It seemed that everyone thought that she was scheming! 'Why the hell would I do that?' she thought, feeling helpless.

'Both Harry and this man think I'm lying to them! I didn't do anything wrong. I am the victim of this whole thing!'

Tears welled up in her eyes again. It's amazing how much tears she had shed in the past few hours!

Richie was more disgusted than ever before. The woman he was currently dealing with was truly cunning!

'If that's what you like, then your wish is my command!' A bitter smile then graced his lips. His life was boring. Now that there was someone challenging his authority, he would like to torture her until she admitted she was wrong!

Richie let out a mocking snort as he bent down slowly to tell Consuela, "You must be very happy now, right? You are finally going to achieve your goal! I have decided to marry you!"

Upon hearing this, Consuela was stunned. She didn't know what to do or say! Didn't he hear her? She didn't want to marry him!

"What? Are you too happy to speak? I know every woman like you would do everything in your power to get what you want! Well, congratulations! Because you have succeeded!"

As he spoke, he drew closer to her.

Those words brought Consuela back to her senses. She refused in a trembling voice, "I... I will not marry you! "

Richie, however, didn't stop. It was as if he hadn't heard Consuela's protestations.

When his lips were about to reach hers, she sprang to her feet and ran towards the door, determined to escape.

Watching her receding figure, the man with sunglasses asked respectfully, "Boss, shall we take her back?"

"No need. Let her go! Just send someone to watch her. Make sure they report everything to me." Richie pondered for a while, then he added, "Also, suppress any news of the photos. I want everything to disappear by tomorrow morning. I don't want anyone from the media to cover it. Do you understand?"

"Yes, sir!"

Richie's face was cold and his expression was menacing. Staring at the direction of Consuela's receding figure, his eyes turn dark.

'Just wait and see, bitch. There will be ample time in future!'

Consuela walked on the streets alone, her mind a mess.

The cold wind that was blowing made her feel cold all over.

She was still shaking because of everything that had happened today. Worse, she felt like she was, once again, on the verge of breaking down.

The thought of everything that Harry had told her made her feel like her heart was being crushed into tiny little pieces. It was such a tangible feeling that she soon felt like she was unable to breathe.

Why did this happen?

After what seemed like forever, Consuela finally arrived at their home. She inhaled deeply and closed her eyes for a few moments to calm herself down. Then, she opened the door and walked in as if nothing had happened.

"Dad, Mom, I'm back."

She tried her best to pretend that everything was normal.

When Johnson Xia and Linda,

both of whom were watching TV with Sheryl, heard that Consuela was back, they turned to look at her with a smile. "Hi, Consuela!"

"Consuela," then Sheryl greeted quietly.

Consuela just nodded in response.

Sheryl glanced at her, and then smiled shyly. "Dad, Mom, I want to tell you something."

Upon hearing this, Consuela stopped in her tracks. She had originally wanted to go straight to her bedroom, but now, she felt compelled to stay.

"Good news or bad news?" Linda asked.

"Well, it's a piece of good news," Sheryl carefully revealed, her face still flushed.

"Look, our daughter is so shy. Does she have a boyfriend?" Johnson Xia rubbed his glasses and teased.

Sheryl hesitated for a while and then nodded. Linda's eyes widened in surprise. She quickly took Sheryl's hand and asked, "Sheryl, is that true?"

Sheryl nodded her head slowly. "Yes, Mom."

"Whose son is he? When will you introduce us to him?" Linda asked excitedly.

Consuela's body froze. She wanted to leave, to run away, but she couldn't move. It was as if her feet were glued to the floor.

Her face turned pale and she unconsciously tightened her fists.

Sheryl was satisfied with her reaction. She smiled and said, "Mom, it's not anyone else. It's Harry."

As soon as her parents heard this, the smiles on their faces vanished, and the atmosphere suddenly became a bit weird.

But after a few seconds, they quickly got back to normal.

Linda looked a little embarrassed. She hesitated for a while, but then she still went on to ask, "Really? He..."

"Harry? He is a good boy. We know him since he was a child. We don't have to worry about him! "

However, before Linda could finish her words, she was interrupted by her husband, who gave his wife a meaningful look.

Linda immediately realized what Johnson Xia meant. "Yes! You're right, darling. Harry is a good boy. Quite good..."

After she finished speaking, she turned to look at Consuela who was still standing by the door that time. "Consuela, do you...know about this?"

Hearing her mother's voice, Consuela lowered her eyes to hide the tears in them. Then she raised her head and forced a smile. "Of course!"

She acted so convincingly that she actually seemed indifferent about hearing the news.

Because of that, Linda threw all her doubts away and eagerly patted the back of Sheryl's hand. "That's amazing new, sweetheart!"

Her doubts stemmed from the fact that she had thought that Harry and Consuela were the ones who loved each other. It seemed like she was wrong.

The corner of Sheryl's mouth was a bit stiff. In the dim living room, no one noticed the hatred hidden in her eyes.

She was their biological daughter. But why did they always put Consuela's feelings into consideration first?

"Ahem." Johnson Xia was thoughtful and suggested, "In that case, how about calling Harry over to have dinner with us tomorrow night? We haven't seen him for a long time."

"Okay," Sheryl agreed immediately.

They seemed to get along well with each other.

At that moment, Consuela felt like an outsider who was isolated and helpless.

"By the way, Consuela, do you have a boyfriend? Don't tell us you're intending on surprising us, too." Johnson Xia sensed that something was wrong with Consuela, but he couldn't figure out what it was.

"No, Dad. That isn't the case," Consuela answered in a low voice. Before they could ask her anything more, she took a deep breath and walked towards her room. "I feel a little tired. I think I will go back to my room and have a rest."

The moment Consuela closed the door, she could hear that the three of them were discussing something about Harry. She could only imagine how happy Sheryl was.

Her heart was sinking. She couldn't hold back the tears that she had been suppressing for a long time.

On the other hand, Richie sat quietly at his desk. Somberly, he remembered how he had refused all girls his parents had arranged for him.

"Well, you don't need to arrange blind dates for me anymore. I have a fiancee now."
