"Stop!" Mia called from behind. "Is this how you talk to your elder?"

Elder? How dare she call herself an elder after all this?

Without waiting for her reply, Fiona had opened the bags she had just put down.

Everything inside these bags was given by Chason to her family.

All she did was bring them here without checking what was inside.

She didn't care about it, but Fiona did. So she was stunned when she saw a belt and a tie for Linford, some designer bags, and health care products inside the bags.

All of these came from brands that Fiona had always dreamed of but couldn't afford to buy. How come Claire casually went home with these stuff?

Lifting the bags, Fiona stood up with a sneer. "Claire, are you making a fortune? Or have you been a thief for the last half month? Oh, I see. You probably saw no hope of seducing my boyfriend, so you seduced another rich man, right?"

It was also when Mia and Linford had a glimpse of what was inside the bags.

With a snort, Linford said, "Don't expect your family to forgive you just because you brought these things."

On the other hand, Mia was itching for those bags of things. Although she didn't know what it was, she knew that it was probably expensive.

"Let her explain where these things came from first, in case someone comes to our house and makes trouble." Trying to conceal her desire to check the things one by one, Mia stood up and took the bags from her daughter.

Their words were so mean that Claire couldn't stand it anymore. "I didn't steal these things. If you don't want them, just throw them away."

To throw them away? Suddenly, Fiona felt ashamed. She and her mother wanted these things so much, but Claire could simply say that they could throw them away.

"Dad, Mom, Claire must have been a mistress of someone. I've seen so many women, even my colleagues, who found a sugar daddy and got rich in an instant." As Fiona spoke, she looked at Claire in disgust.

Her mother put down the things in her hands and nodded. "Linford, it's true. Last time, Claire had sex with another man, which was solid evidence, and then she seduced Fiona's boyfriend. I think it's not impossible for her to find a sugar daddy." Then she let out a heavy sigh, pretending to be sad. "It's all my fault. I didn't teach her well. How could I let the Lin family have such a dissolute daughter?"

Hearing this, Claire couldn't help but be angry.

"Mia..."

Before she could even finish her words, Linford's palm already landed on her face.

If it were in the past, Claire would be shocked that her father slapped her. But because of what had happened recently, she didn't flinch at all. Instead, she raised her head and looked at Linford stubbornly. "I didn't do anything."

However, she couldn't help but wonder why he was like this to her when she was also his daughter. Why couldn't he believe her?

"How can you be so stubborn? Tell me, why do you suddenly have so much money to buy these things? And where have you been in the past half a month?" For so many years, Mia had been wanting to kick Claire out, so she didn't want to give Claire any chance to explain. Now, the mother and daughter were about to strike while the iron was hot and drive Claire away.

When Claire couldn't stand their accusations anymore, she shouted, "I'm getting married! These things are bought by my fiance." Putting away all her emotions, she looked coldly at the people who were rooted on the spot.

Obviously, they were all stunned by her words.

Fiona, in particular, knew the ins and outs of these things best.

Getting married? Claire had slept with another man, how could someone marry her in such a short time? And it seemed that this man was quite rich.

Who could that person be? Who was the rich man in Claire's life? After thinking for a while, Fiona realized that there was only one person, Lucas. It couldn't be him. This thought made Fiona nervous.

It was Mia who first reacted to what she declared. "Claire, why didn't you tell us about your engagement? How worried should we be as parents?"

On the contrary, Linford felt relieved. Dignity was really important for him, and what Claire had done before was a shame for him. Therefore, he didn't care who she was going to marry at all. As long as she got married, he would love it.

"Don't worry. As you wish, I'll be leaving this house soon." After giving her stepmother a cold glance, Claire turned away to enter her room.

Fiona, who was unyielding, was jealous at the moment. In fact, she had been jealous of Claire ever since she had been with Lucas. Why could Claire always meet rich men?

"Hey, don't you think it's too soon? This man looks rich, but he is willing to marry you. Is he a cripple?"

What Fiona said made Claire raise an eyebrow, but she refused to be angry. These people didn't deserve her anger, so she smiled sweetly as if she was not affected. "Yes, the man I'm going to marry is a cripple. But as you can see, he is rich."

'I'm really sorry, Chason, for cursing you today. Anyway, you can't hear me.'

What she didn't know was, there was a person outside the door who was about to vomit blood and pass out.

Yes, Larry had been waiting for her in the car for a long time. However, he went upstairs to see what was going on because it was taking too long for Claire to come out. It was when he heard the quarrel in the room from afar. He didn't dare to go in rashly, and just waited at the door.

So he heard every word they said just now.

Instinctively, he hurried downstairs to report this to Chason. I

t seemed that Claire had been bullied a lot since she came back. If she got angry and hurt the child, he, as the secretary, would probably have to leave J City.

At first, he was hesitant whether to tell Chason that Claire called him a cripple or not, but he didn't dare to report it.

Soon enough, Claire realized that she had been here for a while and Larry was probably tired of waiting for her outside. Besides, she didn't want to stay here any longer, let alone stay with these people.

So she turned around and entered her room.

When she entered the room, she didn't know what she was going to pack. Maybe it was because during her stay in the hospital, everything had been prepared for her. In the end, she decided to pack up a few clothes. She was in a daze when her eyes suddenly fell on the teddy bear on her bedside table. After hesitating for a moment, she sighed and grabbed it.

'Lucas gave this to me, so I'm going to take it with me. I'm sorry for Lucas, but I can't bear to leave him.'

Since she couldn't be with Lucas anymore, maybe it was a good idea to take the teddy bear so she could keep him in her mind.

At the door, Fiona sneered and went inside when she saw that Claire was going to take the bear away.

Even so, Claire didn't bother to look at her and just continued to pack her things.

After closing the door behind her, Fiona crossed her arms and said, "You're about to get married, yet you'd still bring the bear Lucas gave to you?"

Because Claire didn't pay any attention to her words, she didn't notice the hatred in her eyes.

Seeing that Claire had no plan to acknowledge her presence, Fiona grabbed the bear and threw it on the floor.

This sudden action made Claire stand up in anger. "What's wrong with you?"

"What? You still can't forget Lucas?" Slowly, the smile on Fiona's face disappeared.

Hearing Lucas's name from the person she hated most brought pain in Claire's heart, so she hissed, "It's none of your business."

"You're wrong, Claire. It is my business." Then Fiona laughed evilly. "My dear sister, there is something that I think you will be very interested to hear."

When she didn't reply, Fiona continued, "Don't you want to know who my boyfriend is?"

A hint of ominous foreboding suddenly rose in Claire's heart, but she suppressed it. "Get out. Your business has nothing to do with me."

"Really?" Smirking, Fiona slowly declared, "My boyfriend is Lucas. How? Are you still not interested in it?"

As soon as Claire heard this, the luggage she was holding fell on the floor. How was that possible? Looking at her reaction, Fiona burst into laughter.

"Do you want to know more?" While speaking, she looked at Claire's pale face, and proudly took out a pair of scissors to quickly cut open the teddy bear.

It was already too late for Claire to grab the scissors from her hands, so Fiona succeeded. This bear was the first gift that Lucas bought for Claire. At that time, he just went to college, and the Xu family didn't give him much money. It was a bit expensive since it was a limited edition.

He worked for half a year to buy it.

For so many years, Claire had put it on the bedside and slept with it almost every night.

But now, it was ruined. She raised her head and glared at the woman who she had once regarded as her own sister. "Get out."

"No, I won't." A complacent smile appeared on Fiona's face. "That night, when you slept with a strange man, I was on Lucas's bed."

Of course, Claire couldn't believe it. Her sister was probably lying.

Shaking her head, Claire replied, "Nonsense. Dad knows my relationship with Lucas. How could he not know that you openly seduced him?"

"As for Dad, it's true that he doesn't know that my boyfriend is Lucas. But it doesn't matter. After all, I'm pregnant with his child." As she spoke, Fiona touched her belly gently with her right hand. "Dad will only blame me for being willful at most, but he will think that I was with Lucas after you broke up with him."

Seeing Claire's pale face, Fiona couldn't help but be proud. "As for you, I can only wish you and your disabled husband to grow old together. When that happens, Lucas could tell everyone that you abandoned him because you wanted to marry a richer man. Don't forget that you said you would break up with him first."

"So, did you and Lucas design all this together?" For more than a month, Claire had never suspected that Lucas had betrayed her. She had been feeling guilty since then, without knowing that these two had already betrayed the trust she had cherished for so many years.

To her annoyance, Fiona laughed at her as if she was a joke. "That's not true. But I always get what I want. You won't win against me." Then she grabbed the bear on the floor and threw it into a trash can in the room. "From now on, take care of your disabled husband. Don't try to seduce my boyfriend again."

This was the very first time that Fiona felt this happy. Indeed she loved to see Claire being miserable. Everything seemed to be on her favor now. Claire was going to marry a cripple, and she could soon marry into the Xu family with the child in her belly.

"Clap!" Claire slapped her hard across the face.

How could Fiona stand this? "Claire, how dare you!"

She was about to slap Claire but her hand had been caught, and her sister landed another slap on the other side of her cheek. "The first slap is for you setting me up that night. The second slap is for you seduced Lucas. Let me tell you, this is far from being settled. You'd better not provoke me again."
