Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 10
When Nathaniel saw the women’s smeared clothing, he figured they must have fought.
Christina watched calmly as Nathaniel walked over to her and took a piece of tissue to wipe her face. He then turned to Julia and said, “I didn’t ask you to stay with her. You don’t have to come to my house unless there’s important business.”
Julia was mortified. Since when are they that close?
Although their mother-and-son relationship was not as close as outsiders perceived, Nathaniel had never once confronted Julia so openly.
A mere sentence from him was what it took to show how much his attitude toward Christina had changed.
“It’s been a long time, Nathaniel. How have you been?” Xandra asked with an anticipative gaze in Nathaniel’s direction although she dared not look the dashingly elegant man in the eye.
They were that close to getting married years back.
Ever since then, time had passed with Xandra living in resentment and thinking Christina had snatched Nathaniel away from her.
Nathaniel did not respond to her. Instead, he ordered with a scowl on his face, “Sebastian, send Mrs. Hadley off.”
The air stood still at his words.
The sweet smile on Xandra’s face froze while the hand she had held out earlier hung in the air as if she had acted unnecessarily.
She was green with envy as she took in Nathaniel’s loving gesture toward Christina.
What did that woman even do to win his heart?
Stepping forward, Sebastian said politely, “Mrs. Hadley, Ms. Sullivan, this way, please.”
The assistant’s undisguised attempt to chase them out made the atmosphere seem exceptionally awkward, with Julia feeling that Nathaniel was drawing a clear line between them.
Vexed and angry, Julia thought Nathaniel must have lost his mind because Christina had bewitched him.
“Nathaniel, don’t fall for her innocent look. She’s not as good as you think she is.”
Christina’s eyes darkened as her lips curved into a smirk. Well, I can’t wait to hear what lies you make up about me.
All that while, Nathaniel was wiping away the paint on Christina with his gaze locked on her beautiful face as if he could hear nothing aside from Christina’s voice.
Having been ignored again, Julia did not feel great.
I bet he doesn’t know how evil that woman is. He definitely won’t keep her if he knows how slutty she is. Even if he has cured his allergy, he is still a clean freak.
“Nathaniel, here is a word of advice for you as your mother. That woman was at some hotel the night before you returned. She was even wearing that man’s shirt when she came back!”
Charged with a sense of justice, Julia condemned Christina in front of Nathaniel in hopes that the latter would chase Christina out of the Hadley family.
To her, there was no way a sleazy woman like Christina could be worthy of his son. She believed that Nathaniel should marry a woman who could help expand the family’s business so he could consolidate his position as the heir of the Hadley family.
In that regard, Xandra was the best candidate, as she came from an established family and had loved Nathaniel for years.
Everything will go back to its place once I get rid of Christina.
“Nathaniel, you’re an exceptional man yourself. Why did you even choose to be with a filthy woman like her?” Xandra asked with worry written all over her face. “Christina, if you really love Nathaniel, you should let him go so he can marry someone more suited to him.”
Christina almost puked when she heard Xandra. Do you think you’re still shooting at a set? Stop faking it. You’re not the only one here who knows how to put on an act.
With that in mind, Christina inched closer to Nathaniel and rested against his chest, enticing him with her beguiling gaze.
“Since I’m a filthy woman, you should just find someone else.”
