When everyone heard what was said, they were horrified. Even Jeremy Quest’s face had turned dark.
“Oh, god. Hasn’t Xyla Quest gone too far? How could she do that to Emily Quest’s child even if she has a problem with Emily?” Someone said.
“That’s right. Adults should deal with problems on their own. Children are innocent,” another person added.
“I can’t believe a gentle person like Xyla is actually so evil,” someone said.
The surrounding audience began to discuss among themselves. To them, Xyla was an evil woman right then.
Emily was in a poor state. Meanwhile, Emily continued to moan as she paid close attention to the voices around her. When she noticed that everyone’s facial expressions had changed, she felt incredibly satisfied.
Emily knew that today was the day Xyla’s reputation would be ruined. It was all over for Xyla.
Likewise, May thought the same thing. She could not wait to watch Xyla be kicked out of the house. In fact, she could not wait to see how Xyla would go down with a horrible reputation.
May wanted to personally witness how Xyla, a seemingly beautiful peacock, would fall from metaphorical branches into a pile of mud.
While being cursed by people around her, Xyla calmly walked closer to the crowd. She held onto the railing as she stood at the center of the staircase near the bottom.
“Torn Sullivan, you won’t be going anywhere today. Husband, please stop these two from leaving,” Xyla said as she looked at Tom.
Stanley looked at Xyla hard. However, he did not say anything. Instead, he immediately extended his arm to stop Tom from leaving. Since the noises of discussion around Xyla were getting a little too loud for her comfort, she pressed lightly on her right auricle before naturally pushing her ponytail from her right shoulder to the back of her head.
“Did you hear what she said? Xyla’s sister is in such a terrible state, and yet she refuses to let her leave,” someone commented.
“I have never seen such a piece of trash in my life. Emily Quest is in such a bad state. Yet, Xyla can still laugh about it,” another person added.
“Xyla is a mad woman! Like her, her husband is also inhuman. Are they trying to get Emily killed?” Someone asked.
The audience around them began criticizing Xyla and Stanley aggressively.
Meanwhile, Stanley’s facial expression had turned gloomy as he glared at Tom coldly.
“Before all of you see the whole picture clearly, I suggest you keep your mouths shut,” Stanley said with his voice raised.
Although Xyla did not say a word, Stanley could tell that she had also figured out what was going on.
“Stanley Batton, get out of the way! Otherwise, I’m going to hit you!” Tom shouted angrily with the veins on his neck clearly visible.
“Do it,” Stanley said while he looked calmly at Tom.
His murderous glare made it difficult for Tom even to breathe. Although Stanley did not speak loudly, his dominating presence overwhelmed everyone present.
“Stanley, are you mad? Get out of the way!” Jeremy yelled angrily before turning to look at Xyla.
“Xyla, have you gone mad too? Are you this kind of person?” Jeremy asked.
What just happened had thoroughly changed how he viewed Xyla. How could Xyla do this to Emily?
Even if Emily was mean to her, Xyla should not do this to a child.
Stanley remained silent as he continued blocking their way.
Meanwhile, someone in the crowd called for the police as others called for the ambulance. The rest were still cursing out loud. Everyone’s angry glares were focused on Xyla.
If glares alone could kill, Xyla thought, she would probably be killed a thousand times over by now.
“Get out of the way!” Tom yelled as he stared at Stanley with bloodshot eyes.
However, Stanley continued to stand in his way without saying a word. Stanley’s dominating presence and glare alone were enough to intimidate Stanley.
Tom immediately raised his foot and was about to kick Stanley. Reflexively, Stanley dodged the kick before kicking Tom from behind.
In the next instant, Torn quickly fell over.
