At this time in the Wilson family villa.
Lady Wilson and Christopher were waiting for Harold to bring back good news that he had successfully taken over the villa at Thompson First.
However, they did not expect to receive news that Harold was gravely injured and that he had been arrested by the police, currently being detained on the grounds that he had broken into private property and caused intentional harm to others!
This made Lady Wilson extremely angry!
Lady Wilson spoke angrily, “This must have been done by Claire and her family again! This is really unacceptable!”
Christopher was very nervous and started panicking when he heard that his son was seriously injured. He quickly said in agitation, “Mom! Jacob is being too arrogant! You have to claim justice for Harold! After all, Jacob has always listened to anything you say. If you tell him to stop whatever he is doing right now, he will definitely listen to you and act according to your instructions.”
“Of course!” Lady Wilson snorted before she said, “So what if that family managed to keep the villa for themselves? Isn’t it just an empty shell, anyway? They have no money or power in Aurous Hill. How can they ever fight against us? I am not only going to take the villa away from them, but I am going to make sure that they pay a painful price for their actions today!”
As both of them were talking about this, someone suddenly came in to pass a message. “Lady Wilson, Zeke White, the head of the White family, has just arrived.”
“Oh?” Lady Wilson exclaimed in surprise. “Please let him in immediately. I was just about to ask him why he decided to give that villa to Charlie and his family! After all, he is our future in-law, so how could he do that to us?”
As soon as she was done speaking, Zeke walked up to the front door with his nephew, Gerald.
Both of them had actually come over intending to call off the engagement.
In actual fact, Gerald was already sick and tired of Wendy from a long time ago. This was mainly because he felt that Wendy’s family was really incomparable to the White family.
Therefore, as soon as his uncle had said that he wanted to annul their engagement, Gerald agreed to let his uncle call the shots without any hesitation whatsoever.
When Lady Wilson saw both of them standing at the front door, she greeted them in a hurry and said, “Oh, my in-laws are here! Why didn’t you tell me that you were coming in advance?”
Zeke sneered before he spoke coldly, “Lady Wilson, you really are amazing!”
The old lady did not know what Zeke meant by his words. Therefore, she could only force an awkward smile before she said, “What do you mean by that?”
After that, Lady Wilson turned to Christopher before saying, “It’s rare for Mr. White to come and visit us personally. Why don’t you invite him in so that he can have a seat? This is your future in-law!”
“I will not be coming in,” Zeke replied before waving his hand. “The reason why I came here today is mainly to talk about the marriage arrangements between our families.”
At this time, Lady Wilson hurriedly replied, “Mr. White, please be rest assured that we will definitely be holding a wedding banquet, and we will not embarrass you in any way. Please feel free to let us know if you have any additional requests.”
Zeke replied coldly, “Then, I will cut straight to the point. The White family has put some thoughts into this matter, and we feel that the White family and the Wilson family have too many differences and nothing in common at all. Thus, the reason why I am here today is to inform you that I would like to annul the engagement between Gerald and Wendy.”
“What?! You mean you want to cancel their engagement?!” Lady Wilson and Christopher were both in shock.
Wendy was also taken aback, and she immediately burst out, “Why?! Gerald and I have already booked the banquet for our wedding!”
Then, Wendy looked at Gerald before she asked, “Gerald, what is going on?”
Gerald simply shrugged before he said, “This decision was made by the members of the White family. There is nothing I can do about it.”
The Wilson family felt as though they were about to collapse!
This engagement had already been arranged a long time ago, and the Wilson family had made all the necessary preparations for the wedding. They had already informed all of their friends and families regarding Wendy’s engagement because the wedding was supposed to be held next month.
Yet, the White family actually wanted to annul their engagement now?
Lady Wilson had been looking forward to this marriage arrangement because she wanted to use their connections to the White family as leverage to further the Wilson Group.
Now that the White family had decided to annul the engagement, wouldn’t all her efforts be for nothing?
