Miriam laughed and said, “Aunt Montana, are you still angry with my father?”
“It’s been years. I don’t want to bother with being mad at him.”
Though Monica Montana said that, she looked away from Benedict.
Just then, a surprise guest arrived.
It was Mayor Quentin’s daughter, Shania. She was not alone. She was accompanied by her personal bodyguard, Uriah.
Shania was dressed to the nines. She was wearing a sky-blue dress with crystal-clear heels that seemed to be made out of blue glass. The accessory on her head glimmered in the light, making her look like a princess.
Shania’s arrival stole the star of the ball, Miriam’s spotlight. Everyone’s attention was focused on Shania.
“It’s the mayor’s daughter!”
“I didn’t expect Ms. Shania to attend Ms. Miriam‘s birthday ball. Is Ms. Miriam close to Ms. Lewis?”
“I heard Dr. Wosh healed Ms. Lewis’s bodyguard, so Ms. Lewis is honoring Dr. Wosh by attending his daughter’s birthday ball today.”
“I see! No wonder!”
The guests started talking, making the star of the ball, Miriam, slightly unhappy.
It was her birthday, and the ball was held to celebrate her 18th birthday, and now some other woman was stealing the show. It would be strange if Miriam were happy.
“Don’t be upset. Ms. Lewis is doing your father a favor by attending your birthday ball. Your family’s status is far from that of the Lewis family,” Monica seemed to read Miriam’s mind and said with a smile.
“I know, Aunt Montana. I’m not a child…” Miriam said with a wry smile.
Monica gave Miriam a shove and said, “Go on. Say hi to Ms. Lewis. Maybe you’ll become good friends. If you can get along with Ms. Lewis, the Wosh family can become one of the top families in Dorodo in the future.”
Hearing Monica say this, Miriam walked over to Shania.
Jagoan was getting impatient.
He got up and headed for the door, but he had only taken a few steps, and Monica’s driver, Old Jones, snapped with a frown, “What are you doing? I told you not to wander!”
“I want to go to the washroom,” Jagoan said flatly.
Old Jones hesitated for a moment and said unhappily, “You‘re so troublesome. Hurry back. Don’t wander!”
Jagoan pushed the door open and asked several waiters before finally finding the washroom. However, Jagoan got lost after getting out of the washroom!
The Wosh family’s villa was pretty huge. It was almost as big as Mayor Quentin’s residence.
It seemed that Benedict did a good job as a hospital director. Not only did he become rich, but he was also influential in Dorodo.
Otherwise, no amount of money could afford him such a huge piece of land.
“Hello, I’m lost. May I ask…” Jagoan stopped a waitress and asked, but before she could finish speaking, the waitress said with a smile, “It’s alright, Sir. Please follow me…”
Then the waitress led Jagoan to the ballroom.
Jagoan was a little confused. He did not want to come to the ballroom. He wanted to return to the lounge.
