There wasn’t a heating system in the kitchen. On top of that, the water from the running tap was as cold as ice. Emily Quest and May Conner were not even given sponges to wash the dishes. They had to do it with their bare hands.
When the oily leaves got stuck on their hands, the duo felt utterly disgusted. By now, their hands had already turned purple from the cold. Their bodies were also shivering.
The frowns on their faces were so deep that they could probably kill a fly between their brows.
Right now, they were more affected by the hopelessness they felt inside than the cold they felt physically. Although they were both aware of the precarious situation they were in, neither of them could come up with a solution to resolve this mess.
Whenever Emily thought of the fact that she was locked in prison until the day of her wedding, she would break down in tears. When she thought of the idea of losing her father completely, she felt even more hopeless.
May Conner was in a similar situation. She did not know what she would do if Jeremy Quest insisted on divorcing her.
May was truly afraid of getting a divorce. She was also clueless as to how she would survive on her own after the divorce. While it was easy to adjust to the rich’s life, it was challenging to adapt to the poor’s life.
Could May really stand the drastic change in status after getting a divorce?
After washing a few sets of chopsticks and bowls, Emily gave up. She turned around and glared at the policemen. “I’m a pregnant lady. Are you sure you can do this to me?” Emily asked angrily.
“My superior said it’s fine. That means it’s fine. Stop talking nonsense! Otherwise, I’ll break your legs!” One of the policemen in charge yelled at her coldly.
“Do it if you dare!” Emily seemed dissatisfied.
“Would you like to try? Once I turn off the surveillance camera, I can do whatever I want, and nobody would find out,” the other policemen threatened.
Emily immediately felt her scalp prickle as her anger faded away. Emily turned around in a huff and continued to wash the dishes. There was no way she could vent her unhappy feelings. She was also unable to cry about how cold she felt.
She was also unable to cry about how cold she felt.
“Xyla Quest is a b*tch. She’d better not be very happy! Even if things have been resolved, Imperial Prime might not be able to completely sell out all its units. Like I said, a property development with negative media attached to it is difficult to sell. I hope she can’t sell a single unit after this! It will all fail in her hands! She will get pimples all over her face from the worry! She will turn into an ugly b*tch! ” Emily cursed out loud before she continued to do so in her mind.
Emily wished Xyla was dead right now.
“Yeah, you are right,” May snorted.
“If Xyla doesn’t manage to sell the rest of the units, Dad will still doubt her abilities,” Emily said through gritted teeth.
“Tsk!” One of the policemen rolled his eyes.
“What was that?” Emily frowned and cocked her head at him.
“What? Don’t you know that Imperial Prime has already been sold out?” The policemen asked mockingly.
Emily and her mother were instantly in a state of shock. Neither of them could believe what they had just heard. They never expected to be embarrassed by something like this so soon.
Emily was so angry that she continuously ground her teeth. She immediately dropped the chopsticks in her hands and faced the policeman.
“You must be lying to me. How is that possible?”
How was Xyla able to focus on selling those units when she was in the middle of handling a crisis? Were the house buyers crazy?
Why would they still buy units from a property development that had been negatively affected by the media?
“According to what I heard, it has already been proven that the negative media about Imperial Prime was a false rumor. As of now, the Quest family has already provided the public with investigative reports and various documents of proof from the police. Moreover, the buildings were sold out the day before. All of this was thanks to the eldest daughter in the Quest family, Xyla Quest. Now, everyone is praising her for how capable she is. In fact, many people have compared Emily Quest to Xyla Quest, and have said how worthless Emily Quest is,” the policeman explained.
