Since it was rare for her to relax like this, Xyla Quest decided not to set the alarm. By the time she woke up, it was already ten o’clock in the morning.
After looking at the time, Xyla stretched her arms and slowly crawled into a seated position. As the sun shone against her pretty face, her skin was so fair that it seemed to glow.
Knock. Knock. Knock.
Xyla was about to put her slippers and get out ofbed when someone knocked on the door. Closely after that, a female servant’s voice could be heard. “Miss, your father wants you to come down right away.”
Xyla then quickly entered the bathroom to freshen up. After applying a layer of protective skin product on her face, she put on a silk sleeping robe over her sleeping dress and hurriedly made her way downstairs.
When she arrived, Jeremy Quest, May Conner, and Emily Quest were all present.
While Jeremy sat on a single couch and sipped on his coffee, Emily and May sat next to each other on a long couch next to him as they chatted with each other. It seemed like a leisurely moment.
After Xyla glanced at May and Emily coldly, she quickly walked over to the couch across from Jeremy and sat down. “Dad, did you have something to talk to me about?”
Jeremy took a sip of his coffee before his cold gaze landed upon Emily.
Xyla knew that Emily must have been up to something. However, Xyla did not say anything. Instead, she slowly poured herself a cup of tea, and elegantly blew at it to make it cool.
Emily snorted coldly before she crossed her hands and lifted her chin. “You’re still in the mood to drink tea now. You won’t be able to do so later.” Emily gave Xyla the side-eye.
After that, Emily picked up a red folder next to her and handed it respectfully over to Jeremy. “Dad, why don’t you take a look at this?”
Jeremy gave Emily a long stare before opening the folder.
The first page that came into sight was a marriage certificate with Xyla’s name on it. It clearly stated that she was married to a man named Stanley Batton. Jeremy felt extremely shocked by the words in print. It was as if Mars had collided into Earth.
“Emily, where did you get this? Are you sure it’s true? If you dare make this up, you are dead!” Jeremy said coldly while his hands trembled.
“If you want to make sure, you can take Xyla’s identity card and verify her marital status at the Civil Affairs Bureau. Do you think I can make such things up?”
Emily sounded confident when she spoke. After that, she turned to look at Xyla as if she was waiting for something entertaining to happen.
However, Xyla did not make a sound. In fact, she did not even look at Emily. Xyla had spent money overseas to make sure the information related to her marriage was protected against outsiders. Therefore, Xyla was quite surprised that Emily was about to find out.
Previously, Xyla had decided to keep it a secret because she feared her father would be angry at her for marrying a stranger just to recover her looks.
On top of that, Xyla’s husband did not seem interested at all. Like her, he was perhaps waiting for three years to be over to get a divorce. Hence, Xyla felt that there was no need to let her father find out.
Her original plan was to secretly file for a divorce with her husband after the three years were up, and nobody would ever find out.
However, the plan had to be changed now. Fortunately, Xyla was prepared for it.
