At the dinner party, the hall was brightly lit, making the night sky dark and deep, like a swan flannel spreading across the sky.

As soon as Rita entered the room, she heard the sound of playing and singing, and saw full of people dancing and wine glasses swaying. She wore a delicate handmade light apricot evening dress, and the hemline of the dress with small diamonds was as bright as the stars.

Rita Su was supposed to be the most eye-catching woman at the dinner party as she was the wife of Flynn Shen—the heir to The Shae Group.

However, at this moment, she was sitting in an inconspicuous corner, holding a goblet, and kept drinking, as if she would never get drunk.

An unexpected incident led to her demotion. Yesterday, she was still the director of the design department, but just now, Flynn directly announced to promote another person to the position after giving a speech.

When she was slightly drunk, she saw Flynn's tall and handsome figure flash far away, as dreamy as her three-year marriage.

"Ms. Su, why are you hiding here? Tell me what's on your mind."

Suddenly, Rita came to her senses and sobered up. She looked up and saw an enchanting woman looking at her with concern, with a hint of schadenfreude in her charming eyes.

It is Maeryn Han—Flynn's lover, who finally began to brazenly come running to her and tease her.

"Miss Han, I'm just tired. Please don't flatter yourself." After saying that, she drank up the wine in her glass and leisurely glanced at the people who were laughing and talking.

Rita looked calm, but a sharp pain came from the bottom of her heart.

"Ha ha." Maeryn let out a soft and dry smile. Since Rita was rude, there was no need for her to pretend to be nice.

"Rita, you have been the invisible wife of Flynn for three years. Now that you are tired, why do you have to hold on? It must be uncomfortable to be left out in the cold every day, right? I advise you to take the initiative to divorce. It's better to leave some self-esteem for yourself. Do you have to wait for Flynn to kick you out?"

Maeryn's voice was attractive, and her charm was particularly enchanting with her words.

She was born to be the other woman.

Hearing this, Rita couldn't help laughing. In fact, what Maeryn said was true. She tried her best, but she couldn't avoid the truth.

For three years of marriage, Flynn turned a blind eye to her, as if she was just a decoration for home, and kept having love affairs outside the marriage. Even when she worked in the company, she was forbidden by Flynn to expose her true identity.

"Don't worry about other people's private affairs, Miss Han. There is only one laugher-in-law in the Shen family. Do you think you are the first one to say these words to me? The legal wife is the legal wife. I'm afraid you don't have the ability to change it, just like the other wome

n."

Rita smiled leisurely and elegantly.

But the more she smiled, the more she wanted to cry inside. Seeing Maeryn's beautiful face, it was like burning her heart with fire.

"Humph!" Maeryn rolled her eyes and looked around. Then she took out a long and thin female cigarette from her Chanel handbag and lit it. She took a deep breath and blew the smoke on Rita's face.

Maeryn was so charming when she smoked, but Rita's eyes were sore because of the smoke and she was really pissed off.

"Rita, I've never seen anyone so shameless like you. No wonder that Flynn can't do anything with you, but..."

Maeryn stopped and stared at her meaningfully. She picked up the cigarette between her fingers and poked it gently in her own arm. Immediately, the burning red mark was reflected on her skin.

"What..."

Looking at her in astonishment, Rita wondered was Maeryn's self-abuse just because they didn't get along with each other?

Then suddenly Maeryn grabbed Rita's wrist and put the cigarette between her fingers, letting out a piercing scream.

"What trick are you playing? Let me go!" Rita yelped angrily, but her wrist was firmly grabbed, unable to get rid of Maeryn's hand.

All colleagues at the dinner party were attracted by Maeryn's voice. They saw that the two of them were entangled and seemed to have a conflict.

Flynn, who was having a private talk with the company's top managers, also glanced at them and then came over.

"Mr. Shen, she burned me with a cigarette!" As soon as Maeryn saw Flynn, she became soft and cuddly with tears in her eyes.

Seeing the red mark on Maeryn's arm, Flynn frowned and got angry.

He knew that the relationship between the three of them had long been transparent, but he did not expect Rita to be so mean.

"Rita, come to my office tomorrow. You are not welcome to the annual dinner party anymore. Please leave now." Flynn glared at Rita in front of their subordinates without any dignity.

"Why? It was her! She's the one who came to provoke me!" The ashamed and indignant Rita argued for herself. She was used to being weak in front of Flynn, but she also had her own temper.

After saying that, Rita raised her hand, trying to slap Maeryn hard. Now that they were going to break the relationship, she would do it thoroughly.

However, her action was stopped by a powerful hand, and then the hand suddenly loosened and threw her aside with a strong force.

Rita staggered back several steps and bumped into the security guard. Before she could stand firm, she heard Flynn give an order harshly, "Drive this woman out!"

Rita dragged her tired body and opened the door. It was only seven o'clock in the evening when she arrived home, and it was still early for the end of the dinner party.

"Good evening, Mrs. Rita. Welcome back." The maid said and took the handbag from Rita respectfully.
