“This matter is non-negotiable. If you are a smart person, you will get this divorce agreement signed immediately. I have given you enough, including five hundred million dollars in cash and two villas. If you refuse, I will take things to court. If that were to happen, you might not get as much as you would now,” Jeremy Quest said coldly without hesitation.
Jeremy had signed a prenuptial agreement with May Conner when they got married in the past.
Everything under the Quest family’s business belonged to Jeremy privately. Regardless of whether they remained married or not, May would have no claim over any of it.
If they brought this to court, May would not benefit at all.
Since they were once husband and wife and loved each other in the past and lived together, Jeremy hoped that they could separate in peace. Both parties would be significantly affected if legal measures were to be taken. Although it was a difficult decision, Jeremy knew that it was necessary. It was better to suffer in the short term than to suffer in the long term.
In the past, there were times when May misbehaved. However, she usually did not cross the line. Therefore, Jeremy was still able to pretend as if he was not aware of those shortcomings.
However, the things May did nearly affected his company at its core. Hence, Jeremy could not tolerate it anymore.
May felt as if her mind was going to explode. Her thoughts were in a state of complete disarray.
If she could not get past this stage, she would have to leave Jeremy with only five hundred million dollars and two villas.
Although five million dollars was a considerable amount to an average person, it was nothing significant for a rich housewife like May.
With only five hundred million dollars to her name, there was no way she could live happily. The lifestyle she needed to adjust to was incomparable to what she had now.
After being used to such a lavish lifestyle, how would May get used to living out there independently?
Besides, if she was to give up this easily, the Quest family’s wealth would have nothing to do with her and Emily Quest. Without May around, Emily would no longer have an advantage in fighting for the Quest family’s inheritance.
“No, darling. Please don’t be this cruel. I have done wrong. I have really done wrong,” May began begging sorrowfully.
However, Jeremy did not say another word. Mercilessly, he turned around and began heading upstairs.
When Xyla saw this scene, she was sure that her father had made up his mind. Although Xyla knew she had won this battle, she did not show emotions.
After glancing at May coldly, Xyla stood up and turned around to head upstairs.
May immediately glared at Xyla.
“Xyla Quest, don’t be too pleased with yourself. It’s not the end yet. There are still a lot of uncertainties,” May said coldly.
However, Xyla did not respond to May. Instead, Xyla smiled coldly.
“I’m sure you must have been the person who made that video clip appear online, isn’t that so? You really are evil. Never mind that you intentionally embarrassed me at the banquet by getting people to gather around, you have even leaked the footage all over the internet,” May said through gritted teeth.
She wished she could tear Xyla apart.
Meanwhile, Xyla found the things May said funny.
How rotten did a person have to be to say those things?
Did May realize what she and Emily had done to Xyla?
How did May still have the courage to call Xyla an evil person?
However, Xyla merely turned around calmly to look at May.
“Do you have proof?” Xyla asked.
“You…” May was suddenly speechless.
“Aunty, if you don’t have proof, don’t say those things. It’s called a false accusation. Do you understand what that means?” Xyla asked.
“I will find proof,” May said.
“Well, then, let’s talk when you find it,” Xyla said calmly.
Although Xyla did not raise her voice and spoke very softly, there was a hint of coldness in her eyes that made her seem very unapproachable.
May felt that she was no longer the Xyla she knew.
