“Alright, I’ll be there. What time will it start on that day?” Xyla Quest agreed heartily.
Xyla did not want to make things difficult for her father during such times.
“Twelve o’clock, the day after tomorrow. You must remember to come with Stanley, got it?” Jeremy Quest sounded a lot happier.
“Alright,” Xyla answered cheerfully.
The welcoming party for Emily Quest and Tom Sullivan was unusually grand. Many of the Quest family’s friends and relatives showed up. By eleven o’clock, the parking spaces inside and outside the courtyard were already filled with cars. Meanwhile, people kept pouring into the courtyard.
In total, the Quest family had prepared sixty tables for their guests.
Dressed in a festive outfit, May Conner wrapped her hands around Jeremy’s arm affectionately. While the two of them walked from table to table, May kept a broad smile on her face. Prior to this, many people were waiting for her to make a fool of herself.
How many of them were anticipating her divorce with Jeremy?
Now, she wanted to make these people feel embarrassed.
May would make it known that she was an undefeatable god. Unless she wanted to and allowed it to happen, nobody could take her down.
Meanwhile, in the villa next door, Xyla was done with her make-up and was checking herself out in front of a mirror in her luxurious closet.
The gold and diamond plated mirror showed her how she looked from head to toe. Her black, wavy hair was pulled back into a neat ponytail, including the loose strands in front of her forehead. Her bright forehead was now in full view.
Xyla had carefully chosen a color palette of peace blossom pink for her make-up. At the end of her eyes, she stuck on a single teardrop on each side to make her overall appearance stand out. The skin-tight black dress she wore accentuated her beautiful curves. Meanwhile, the white snowy fox fur around her shoulders made her appear glowing more than usual.
As such, Xyla now looked both beautiful and fairy-like, almost as if she were an expensive piece of jewelry.
Casually, she pushed a few loose strands of hair behind her ear before changing into a pair of black hiin heels. When she looked at the mirror again, her smile became slightly cold.
However, as quickly as the coldness appeared, it disappeared once more while she slowly made her way downstairs.
Stanley Batton, dressed in a full suit and leather shoes, was smoking in the living room. His black shirt had intricate details on them. Coupled with a matching black tuxedo suit, his broad shoulders and long legs were very much apparent.
Meanwhile, the cuff links on his sleeves shone brightly under the stun. It was a perfect contrast for the depressive black tone of his outfit. He had brushed his thick hair loosely to the back of his head, allowing it to rest casually wherever it fell. On top of that, his facial features seemed perfect.
“Let’s go, Five Batton,” Xyla said after walking quickly over to him.
Slowly, Stanley put the cigarette out as he looked at Xyla through the smoke.
“Okay,” he said.
After that, he picked up her car keys and walked outside. Xyla quickly followed him.
By the time Xyla and Stanley entered the Quest family’s house, most of the guests had already arrived.
At once glance, the place seemed packed.
Meanwhile, Emily Quest was holding onto Tom Sullivan’s arm as she cheerfully walked from table to table with Jeremy Quest and May Conner behind her, toasting each of her guests as she did so.
Emily and Tom were at the center of attention.
When Xyla saw this scene, she could not resist chuckling coldly. Indeed, this couple was shameless enough to pretend as if nothing had happened despite causing so much trouble previously.
Within a few seconds after Xyla and Stanley walked in, many people began to notice them. Their good looks had always attracted a lot of attention.
Very soon, everyone was looking at Xyla and Stanley. Not long after that, Emily and Tom also noticed them.
