Everywhere around her quieted down instantly as soon as she said that. Everyone widened their eyes in surprise and looked at Alice in astoundment.
What the heck was going on?
The coward was actually Prince William?
Could they have misheard it?
In the corner, Cindy heaved a sigh to himself after witnessing the scene. He thought Alice was being quite stubborn.
Still, he felt rather touched. Alice was different from other opportunistic women. She was of rather good moral character, but her act of telling the truth would put him at risk.
The scene was quiet for two seconds. Prince William’s expression was extremely unpleasant and he glared at Alice with a deathly stare!
Yes, Prince William was bragging by degrading Cindy ferociously to boost his reputation, yet Alice’s claim was undoubtedly a slap in his face!
The most crucial part was that Alice was his fiancée. How was he going to recover from such mortification?
He clenched his fist tightly and felt anger flooding his entire body. His eyes widened in anger and he had to force his words through his tightly clenched teeth. “What are you talking about, Alice?”
Alice began to realize that she would definitely be in trouble after making such remarks, especially after seeing how furious Prince William was. She knew she was in deep trouble.
It was impossible for her not to be afraid.
That being said, she did not regret saying that because she was only telling the truth. It was obviously Cindy who saved them and Prince William was the coward.
She owed Cindy a huge debt of gratitude. If she could not even defend the man’s reputation and she could only watch helplessly as Cindy was defamed by Prince William, her conscience would not let forgive her.
Hence, she took a deep breath, stood up straight, assumed a manner of risking everything while she said in a loud and clear voice, “It’s true. It was Cindy who saved us that day. Had it not been his timely reaction, we would have already… ”
Before she could finish her sentence, Prince William delivered a savage slap across her face. The sound it made was unusually loud.
A distinct palm print immediately appeared on Alice’s fair, flawless face. She staggered and backed away two steps. She would have fallen had a servant not caught her in time.
The scene came as a surprise to everyone. Even though Alice’s remark was slightly inappropriate, Prince William should not have hit her. It was not very gentlemanly of him!
Hence, many people frowned upon Prince William and found that he had gone too far with his actions. Alice was his fiancée, and even without marrying into the royal family, she was still a member of the Alexanders.
As for Cindy standing in the corner, his eyes turned ice-cold for a moment after witnessing the scene. He was holding a glass in his hand, and it broke with a crack!
He felt like he just might murder Prince William.
