Xyla’s relatives were still complimenting her.
When May Conner and Emily Quest saw how Xyla and Stanley had become the center of attention, they felt extremely upset. In the past, when Xyla had become ugly and ran away, May and Emily would always be the center of attention. However, ever since Xyla returned in a grand fashion, things were never the same again…
Emily couldn’t stand listening to all of it any longer. She stood up and walked right out the door.
When Xyla saw Emily leaving, her eyes turned cold. After that, she smiled ather relatives and excused herself before heading out.
In the courtyard, the fragrance of spring was strong. The intensity of sunlight was just lovely, and there were soft breezes in the air.
In a little garden, countless flowers of all sorts were in full bloom, and the various colors were mesmerizing. When Emily saw that Xyla came out, she knew very clearly why that was.
Emily immediately pretended to be extremely depressed as she leaned against a pillar. “Sister… The weather is great today,” Emily said as she looked at Xyla meekly.
Emily was surprised that Xyla was able to figure it out this time. Clearly, she had made sure everything was seamless.
What had gone wrong?
When Xyla saw Emily behaving like this, she couldn’t help but feel that her little sister had become much smarter. Emily seemed to have gone through an evolution.
Without showing any facial expression, Xyla walked over to Emily and gently patted her on the shoulder. “Emily, you don’t have to pretend in front of me.”
“What do you mean?” Emily still pretended to be confused.
“You know exactly what I mean. For your own sake, and for Dad’s, I’d suggest you don’t do anything foolish. You should know that I’m the vengeful kind of person. I’ve been tolerating you all this while only because of our father, but he can’t protect you forever…” Xyla snorted coldly.
“Sister, what are you talking about?” Emily’s eyes widened as her eyes turned red.
Xyla ignored Emily and walked into the house right away. All Xyla could feel for Emily was disgust.
After Xyla had left, Emily’s facial expression turned cold suddenly. The look of despise on her face was apparent.
“Xyla Quest… Just you wait,” Emily said through gritted teeth as she clenched her fists tightly.
So what if Xyla told her those things?
Did she think Emily would give up?
Emily was not born a coward. Besides, Xyla didn’t have any proof. It was only a guess. As long as Emily was alive, she would make Xyla suffer!
When Xyla returned to the house, she sat next to the rest.
“Where did you go?” Jeremy asked curiously as he looked at Xyla.
“I just went out for some fresh air. It smells nice in the garden…” Xyla smiled.
“Speaking of that, I was just going to say that Atlantis looks beautiful right now. I wonder who decorated the entire city with roses to please his wife. It’s beautiful,” Emily’s aunt said.
Since Tom was in a bad mood, he couldn’t be bothered to stay here and listen to their chatter. He went outside right away. He wanted to get a breather outside.
As soon as Tom went out, May began speaking in a soft voice, “I heard Emily saying that Tom has been contacting someone who sells roses these days. I wonder if Tom was the one who did it.”
May thought that since the actual couple’s identities hadn’t been revealed, there wouldn’t be an issue for her to say such a thing. Everyone was focusing on Xyla today. May wanted to draw some attention to Emily to feel better.
