Hearing that, Tina felt relieved. Then she seemed to think of something. She frowned and said in a solemn tone, "I met that bitch Erica today. She asked me to tell you to attend the family meeting tomorrow!"

Slightly frowned. Esther had thought about going back once, but when she thought of Erica's disgusting face, she shook her head and said, "Humph, the family meeting? It has nothing to do with me!"

In fact, Tina could understand what Esther was thinking, but...

"Esther, I know you hate them. To be honest, I also hate them very much. But since you have returned to this society, you have to face them sooner or later. Escape is not a solution!"

It was Iwan who had actually said this, but Tina thought it made sense and decided to persuade Esther to go back to the family meeting.

Esther felt bad in her heart. She knew that Tina was doing this for her own good, but she just couldn't let go of the past.

"Esther, go back. If you don't show up tomorrow, Erica will definitely try to find you again. So you'd better attend the family meeting!"

"But I..." Esther really wanted to say that she hated those people. She was afraid that she would beat them up on impulse when she saw them, but when she looked at the sincere eyes of anxious and worried Tina, she bit her lips and finally decided to go back.

Tina was overjoyed. "You can do this. Come on, Esther!"

"Okay!"

The next morning, after packing up, Esther took a taxi to the Li family.

When she left, Tina saw her thin figure. She felt sad and worried. Suddenly, she thought of the business card on the table in the room, and a shrewd look flashed across her eyes.

When Esther arrived at the Li family's residence, due to Erica's order, she entered the Li family smoothly this time, and was directly taken to the hall by the housekeeper.

"Erica, how about this wedding dress?"

"Well, Mommy, I think it's very beautiful. Murphy, what do you think?"

"Of course, Erica will be the most beautiful bride on that day!"

Hearing Murphy's words, Erica's face was as pink as a peach blossom, and there was shyness on her face. When she looked around, she suddenly saw the figure not far away at the door. A fierce light flashed through her eyes, and she suddenly turned her head and kissed Murphy's lips. "Murphy, I love you so much!"

"I love you too!"

Murphy certainly didn't know why Erica suddenly kissed him. Seeing that Erica's parents were looking at him with a smile, he kissed Erica back and said.

However, the tenderness on his face froze in the next second because of the figure who suddenly broke in. Looking at the cold face of Esther, a flash of joy flashed through his eyes.

But he immediately seemed to realize that something was wrong. He quickly took back his hands and cleared his throat awkwardly. "Esther, you're here!"

Of course, Erica felt the stiffness of Murphy just now, and the joyful light in his eyes. Erica's heart was burning with jealousy, and a trace of sarcasm appeared at the corners of her mouth. But she pretended to be happy and tried to grab Esther's hand. "Sister, you're finally back. Have you forgiven me?"

Knowing that Erica was acting, Esther's eyes flashed with irony. She dodged Erica's touch and said coldly to Murphy, "Isn't it a family meeting? My sister has already brought her boyfriend into our house before they get married. Is it because she is an extraverted girl, or you guys have already slept in the same be for a long time?"

She glanced at the people present sarcastically. Erica's face turned stiff, and her eyes were vicious. Murphy's face turned pale, and there was even a flash of struggle in his eyes.

"Esther, so you hate me?" Murphy said with a sad look.

His words made the other three people's faces changed slightly.

Erica, in particular, gave a vicious and obscure glance at Esther and said, "Sister, it's impossible for the Ye family to have a daughter-in-law like you. Besides, Murphy and I love each other. Don't worry. I will ask Dad to introduce someone from a good family to you. After all, you have a previous conviction. If Dad doesn't show up, I'm afraid you won't be able to marry anyone!"

Erica seemed to be very considerate for Esther, but Esther knew what Erica was up to. She looked at Erica coldly.

However, Howard Li was so angry that he had been waiting to scold her. "My unfilial daughter, how dare you come back to speak ill of Murphy? You have disgraced our Li family. How can you blame your sister and Murphy?!"

This was her biological father, who was colder than most passers-by. Esther looked at him coldly, her eyes like sword blades.

On the other hand, Howard Li didn't expect that his daughter would have such an imposing manner, and his heart was trembling. But after all, he had been in the business circle for so many years. He snorted and said angrily, "How coudl you have the nerve to stare at me? Don't forget that I'm your father. It's a misfortune for our family to have a daughter like you!"

Esther's heart was getting colder and colder because of Howard Li's words. She thought it might be the last time that she could talk to them so "kindly".

"Since you don't welcome me, why do you still ask me to come back for a meeting? It's so ironic. If there's noth

ing else, I'm leaving!"

Esther cast a cold glance at the crowd, especially at Erica.

Though the look she cast on Erica's face was unintelligible, she panicked. Something occurred to her, so she quickly stood up and tried to reach Esther's sleeve. This time Erica moved so fast that she grabbed Esther's sleeve before she could react.

"Daddy, it's not easy for my sister to get married now. If you don't want others to say that you are only partial to me in the future, you'd better find a good man for her, so that he can support her in the future, and she can also help our family!"

The last sentence was the key point. Sure enough, Howard Li, who was still angry just now, suddenly flashed a light in his eyes. He softened his voice and looked at Erica with satisfaction. "Esther, your sister cares about you. I don't care about what you have done before. Just stay at home and wait for me to find you a Mr. Right!"

Esther sneered in her heart, 'A Mr. Right?'

She didn't believe that Howard was so kind-hearted. What Erica said just now was just to remind him to use her marriage for business connections.

Esther glanced at everyone coldly and said, "What if I don't want to stay?"

She didn't believe that they dared to do anything to her. Did they really think that she was still the one who used to be at their mercy and thought they were kind?

Howard Li sneered, "It's not up to you!"

A bad feeling flashed through Esther's mind. She tried her best to calm down and said, "What do you want?"

As she spoke, she took a step back instinctively, as if she was ready to leave at any time.

However, it was obvious that Howard Li didn't give her any chance. He laughed ironically and arrogantly. "I have the final say when you come to the Li family. You will know what I am going to do soon! Guards, take her away!"

Howard didn't admit that she was his daughter, and he even treated her like this.

She didn't expect that Howard Li would be so cruel. She roared coldly, "I'm not the only one who knows that I'm here today! Are you going to put me under house arrest? Try it!"

Hearing Esther's reminder, Howard Li's face changed, but Erica sneered, "You are the daughter of Li family. Who dares to gossip if you just stay at home?"

Now Erica admitted that she was the daughter of the Li family? Then why did they break up with her at that time? Esther's face turned pale. She knew that she might not be able to leave today, so she was a little flustered. What should she do? Even if she wanted to inform Tina, it would be too late.

Seeing that two servants caught her in such a mess, Erica smiled proudly and ironically. The others in the room also smiled, as if they were laughing at her stupidity and throwing herself into the net.

"Bang!"

Just when Esther was in despair and the other dirty people of the Li family laughed so arrogantly, a noise came from the door, and then a loud bang came from the door.

Everyone looked outside and saw a tall figure appear at the door.

The white light poured in from the back of the man. The man's face was hidden in the dark.

Who was that...?

The inexplicable sense of familiarity made Esther's eyes wide open.

Taking a look at that person, Howard Li thought that must be an ordinary friend of Esther's, so he scolded him at once, "Who are you? How dare you come to the Li family to make trouble?"

"Guards, what the hell are you doing here? You earn so much money every month, but you can't even stop such a single person?" Erica looked terrible.

The guards all lowered their heads, not daring to respond to Erica, but they didn't dare to stop the man standing at the door, either. The security guards who were knocked down outside were still lying on the ground.

Everyone could do nothing but watch the intruder walk in.

When Esther saw the man, she was surprised. Why was he here? Why did he come here?

It was none other than Carl.

He wore a tailored suit, with the collar slightly open and a faint smile on his lips. Although he looked idle and playful, he was clearly a little fierce and dignified.

On the other hand, Howard Li had been in the business circle for dozens of years. Although he was heartless, he did have a pair of sharp eyes. The man in front of them had an extraordinary temperament and a high status.

Thinking of this, Howard Li's old face softened a lot. In an instant, a gentle smile appeared on his face. He changed his face so fast that it was hard for everyone to believe.

"Who is this?" He asked Esther, but his eyes were fixed on the man.

A touch of mockery rose from the corners of his mouth, Carl smiled but said nothing. His calm eyes swept over the crowd one by one before slowly walking towards Esther.

"Why are you here? Go back now. This is not the place you should come." Seeing that Carl suddenly appeared in front of her, Esther was slightly moved.

But it was her family's private affair. She shouldn't get him involved, who was only a little more familiar than strangers to her.

Noticing the concern in her eyes, his cold and sharp eyes softened.

"I heard that you are here, so I came to check on you." With a faint smile, Carl said lightly, as if he didn't realize that he sounded like they were having an affair.
