Chapter 375: Slapping Yvonne In The Face!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
She looked just as if she had suffered some kind of injustice.
Warren was aware that Yvonne had been stripped of her authority to manage the household. When he heard what she said, he subconsciously assumed that it was Maureen who was fighting with her over a dress.
Taken aback, he turned to Maureen and asked, “What dress is she talking about, dear?”
He grabbed Maureen and led her to the side. “I get it now. It’s time to custom-make clothes today again, right? Did you get angry again?”
During the past few years, the aggressive Maureen would always get angry once a year.
After Warren found out about it, he would always go out of his way to make her happy during those few days. He either took her out shopping or took her overseas for a vacation.
He subconsciously tried to persuade her and said, “Didn’t we already agree on this? It’ll be fine once she marries into another family. You’ll have the biggest say in the family after that! And you can choose all the clothes you want after that! Her marriage with the Hunts has already gone up in smoke now, so her future husband’s family definitely won’t be as good as the Smiths. What’s the point in fighting with her over a dress…”
“What’s the point in fighting with her over a dress”…
That one line of his instantly made Maureen feel even more aggrieved.
Even though someone had bullied her at home, she still thought of being considerate toward her husband and son, but what about her husband? All he did was take his sister’s side in everything!
Maureen stared at Warren. She was really hurt this time. She said, “Do you think I would get angry just because of a dress?”
Warren scratched his head.
As a man with low EQ, he really was rather dense when it came to how girls thought.
Next to them, Yvonne said, “Don’t lose your temper at Warren, Maureen. I already said that I would let you have that dress… It was my fault. I should have noticed that you liked that dress and not taken it for myself…”
Her hypocritical words put Maureen at such a loss for words that she couldn’t say anything at all.
Yet, Warren actually believed her. He walked over to Yvonne and said, “Since you are so generous, then I won’t stand on ceremony, Yvonne. Haha, how about this? I’ll take you out tomorrow for some clothes shopping, okay?”
Yvonne smiled and replied, “You’re standing too much on ceremony if you say that, Warren. We’re family; I should give in to Maureen once in a while.”
“… You’re the most sensible one, after all. Don’t hold it against Maureen!”
Nora stared at Yvonne. Her two-faced behavior in front of the men of the Smiths wasn’t anything surprising to her anymore.
She merely thought that Yvonne looked very laughable at the moment.
Maureen, however, was furious. It was clearly Yvonne who had snatched her dress, yet she looked like the insensible one now!
With her eyes red, she shouted furiously, “Warren! Smith!”
Warren immediately looked back at her timidly. “Dear… What’s the matter? The dress is already yours now. Why… are you still unhappy?”
Maureen was so angry that her chest heaved up and down.
She stared at Yvonne and sneered, “You really have a way with schemes, don’t you?”
Yvonne lowered her head. “Are you still upset, Maureen? In that case, will it do if I give you all the clothes I picked?”
The EQ-less Warren immediately nodded. “Yeah, it will! Dear, look at how Yvonne has already given in. As they say, harmony in the family brings prosperity. Let’s let this matter go…”
She was so angry that she simply couldn’t say anything. Her finger trembled as she stared and pointed at Yvonne. Then, she pointed at Warren. “You’d rather believe her over me?”
Warren scratched his head. “No, it’s not about who I believe or whatnot. Weren’t we talking about clothes, dear? How did it turn into about who I believe? You’ve totally confused me!”
Yvonne also sighed. “We’re family, Maureen. If you’re still dissatisfied, then will it do if I apologize to you?”
Maureen retorted, “I’m not worthy of your apology! After all, this is your home, and you’re the eldest daughter of the Smiths. Didn’t you say just now that Warren and I are just outsiders?”
Warren looked at Yvonne in disbelief at once.
Yvonne panicked. “What are you saying, Maureen? Isn’t it just a piece of clothing? How did it escalate to this?!”
She looked at Warren and hastily explained, “I think Maureen is being too sensitive and is thinking too much. Warren, I’ve always seen and treated you like my brother all these years! Dad has also said that I’m the only daughter at home, so all of you are my family!”
Warren frowned. He looked at Yvonne, and then at Maureen.
Maureen wasn’t someone who made groundless accusations. Since she had said so, then there was no doubt that Yvonne had said that. However, Yvonne was also someone reliable who looked at the big picture usually, so how would she possibly say something like that?
While he was hesitating, Yvonne said, “Out of all my brothers in the family, I’m the closest with Warren. I know you’re suddenly making a scene because Joel doesn’t like me anymore, but even so, you can’t just sow discord between Warren and I like that!”
Maureen became even angrier. “In that case, do you dare to repeat what you said just now when you were fighting with me over the clothes downstairs, Yvonne?”
Yvonne frowned. “What did I say? Maureen, I really don’t know what you’re talking about!”
Maureen felt like she was about to explode.
She had always been a straightforward person. She hated hypocritical b*tches like her the most!
It was at this moment that a soft voice reached them. “Tsk.”
The three people who were arguing immediately turned to Nora.
She curled her lips disdainfully and said to Yvonne, “I didn’t expect you to have such a bad memory. Have you already forgotten what you said just now?”
Warren immediately looked at Yvonne.
Yvonne narrowed her eyes but remained calm. She heaved a huge sigh and said, “Nora, I know you got into trouble because Mdm. Florence took the pill from my room, but you can’t just make up lies about me like that!”
Practically right after she said that, a voice suddenly played from Nora’s cell phone.
“I can just like collecting red clothes, can’t I?”
“So what even if I don’t wear them and put them all in the closet?
“As the eldest daughter of the Smiths, surely I have the right to be a little willful, right?”
“Am I the one who shouldn’t go too far, or is it someone else who should practice some self-awareness as an outsider living under someone else’s roof? Maureen, do you really think you’re one of the masters of the household just because you and Warren are living here? The Smiths have already parted ways and formed their own families long ago! My dad is the real master of the Smiths! You’re all just people who have left the main family! All of you are just! Taking! Up! Temporary! Residence! Here!”
“Joel isn’t Dad’s adopted son, either. I’m Dad’s one and only lawful daughter! All of you are bullying me because Dad is sick, so no one can defend me, right?”
Yvonne’s voice played clearly from the audio recording.
Nora curled her lips disdainfully and looked at a stunned Yvonne. Her lips curled into a smile.
Did they really think that she would allow Yvonne to behave so arrogantly in the Smiths’ manor? She hadn’t done anything just now only because these recordings were more than enough to expose her true colors to the Smith brothers!!
