"I want to plant carrots over here. Cabbages over there. And some yams. The fish pool should be there. Can someone build a grape trellis by the wall for me? I want to make wine with grapes next year."

Cassandra fired orders one after another. The garden which was filled with precious plants and flowers were going to be a vegetable garden.

Carlos' heart ached at her orders.

She decided to plant vegetables like carrots and cabbages in the garden. Didn't she know that the land on this property was worth millions of dollars per square meter?

"Is something wrong, Carlos? Are you feeling sick? You don't look well." It was only then that Cassandra noticed that something was off with Carlos.

'Why are you doing this to the garden?' Carlos cried to himself.

He had seldom come to the garden in fear that he might accidentally destroy an expensive plant. Now that all the plants would be removed and replaced by vegetables, this place felt more like home.

"I'm fine. I have something to take care of. If you need anything, feel free to ask any of the servants to take care of it for you," Carlos said.

"Is Martin leaving with you," Cassandra said with a pout.

"Yes, ma'am. There are many things to take care of in the company. Martin is always busy," Carlos replied.

Cassandra was well aware that Martin was a busy man and it was unusual for him to take a day off. In her previous life, she eagerly hoped for him to stay away from home as much as possible. At this moment, however, she couldn't help but pity him despite herself. His life must be tiresome.

It wasn't in Martin's nature to be cruel and vicious. He was born into a large family like the Lu Clan, and no one supported him. If he wanted to survive and become the head of the clan, he had to play by their rules and beat them in their own game.

"You can go to work now," Cassandra replied in an even tone and tried her best to conceal her true feelings.

Carlos didn't notice anything unusual with her. He bid farewell and left in a hurry.

Although they suffered no casualties after what happened the previous night, the elders of the Lu Clan refused to let it go easily. It was a serious crime to disobey them. More than that, Elder Cary always spoke ill of Martin.

As soon as Martin left, a servant came in to report that Susan had come to see her.

A mocking smile appeared on Cassandra's face. Susan was the same as she was in her previous life. After seeing Martin at the wedding, sh

e wanted to get the man. She couldn't wait to deceive Cassandra into leaving Yan Garden.

'Huh?

Does she still think that I'm as naive as I was before?'

If she hadn't experienced what she had in her previous life, would she ever see Susan and Roger for who they truly were? Susan and Roger were a couple of viciousness.

"Let her wait in the living room. I'll be there soon." Cassandra lowered her head with a nonchalant expression.

"Yes, ma'am."

Cassandra took a deep breath before she walked into the living room.

In the living room

Susan was seated on the sofa dressed in an elegant white dress. Initially, she came by today in hopes of running into Martin, but to her surprise, he was gone by the time she arrived.

But it didn't matter.

Now that Martin was gone, she believed she was able to deceive Cassandra into leaving Yan Garden.

A malicious light flashed across Susan's eyes, but she kept an amicable smile. Even the servants were enchanted by her. It was clear why she was the most famous star in the entertainment industry. She was known to have an excellent temperament.

By this moment, Cassandra walked in. When she walked over to Susan, she smiled brightly at her. "Why didn't you tell me you were coming? I'm sorry I kept you waiting."

Susan smiled gracefully and said, "I'm flattered. You got married recently, and I was worried you might have trouble getting used to life here. I came by to see if you are okay."

Cassandra pretended to be moved by her words. She gazed at Susan with watery eyes and said, "Susan, how kind of you! I'm touched that you came all the way here!"

'This idiot is easy to fool. I guess I overestimated her intelligence. With just a few words, I have Cassandra wrapped around my fingers,' Susan thought to herself and sneered.

Susan smiled warmly and said, "I'd prefer if we talk privately."

Cassandra nodded and said to the servants, "You may leave."

The servants didn't dare disobey her and exited. Only Susan and Cassandra were left in the living room.

Susan feigned a worried sigh, and Cassandra asked, "What's wrong? Why did you sigh?"

Susan looked at her as if to say something, but stopped on second thought. Her face looked like it was full of regret. "It's all my fault."

"What happened?" Cassandra asked in a worried tone.

Susan hesitated for a few moments and said in a low voice, "I've always known that you like Roger, and you agreed to marry Martin for his sake, right?"
