Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 3
Julia got even angrier when she noticed that. She walked up to Christina and slapped her hard across the face, causing it to swell up on the spot.
“Still won’t admit it, huh? I bet you cheated on my son and kept that toyboy of yours with our family’s money!”
Julia had never seen Christina as a member of the Hadley family to begin with. In fact, she had already picked out a candidate to marry Nathaniel, and she was going to kick Christina out the moment he was cured of his medical condition.
Christina is nothing but a useless parasite! She doesn’t deserve to be a part of the Hadley family!
Christina did not expect Julia to come up with such a ridiculous theory from a dress shirt alone. She rubbed her swollen cheek as she stared at Julia defiantly.
“I’ve been married into the Hadley family for three years now, and Nathaniel hasn’t shown himself even once. Given how beautiful the foreign women are, I’d say it’s more likely that he’s the one who’s been cheating on me.”
Unable to stand someone insulting her son, Julia raised her hand to slap Christina again.
This time, however, Christina caught her wrist with ease and said, “Mrs. Hadley, I allowed you to hit me once because you’re an elder, but you shouldn’t mistake my patience for weakness. Don’t forget how I married into the Hadley family in the first place. Fighting me will not benefit you at all.”
Back then, she had been drugged and delivered to the Hadley family against her will. Had her mother not been at the mercy of the Steele family, Christina wouldn’t have willingly married Nathaniel for three years just to rid him of those nasty rumors.
Julia’s eyes went wide with anger and disbelief. “You dare threaten me?”
For three years, she had assumed that Christina was harmless and submissive. That was why she felt shocked when Christina actually fought back.
“No, I’m just giving you a gentle reminder.” With a smile on her face, Christina let go of Julia’s wrist. “Anyway, I’ll be leaving now.”
Christina went upstairs to pack her things and soon after left the house.
Meanwhile, Sebastian knocked on the door of the CEO’s office of Hadley Corporation and walked up to Nathaniel, who was sitting on the couch.
“We found out who she is, Mr. Hadley.” He handed Nathaniel a folder. “Her name is Christina Steele. She was attending the graduation party when she got drugged and ended up in your room by mistake.”
Sebastian knew right off the bat that Christina wasn’t acting upon someone else’s instructions.
Nathaniel showed no reaction whatsoever as he glanced at the photographs inside the folder.
The lighting was dim, but the cameras managed to capture Christina’s face rather clearly.
She had exquisite facial features, a petite figure, and curves in all the right places.
Nathaniel couldn’t help but recall the wild night he had with her yesterday. Noticing that Nathaniel was staring blankly at the photographs, Sebastian added cautiously, “There’s one more thing that you need to know, Mr. Hadley.”
“What is it?”
Sebastian was so nervous that he nearly bit his tongue when he said, “Christina is a married woman.”
Having worked under Nathaniel for so many years, he knew full well that it was a miracle to encounter a woman who didn’t trigger his allergy.
However, he also knew that Nathaniel couldn’t stand being with women who belonged to other men.
Sure enough, the look on Nathaniel’s face turned gloomy instantly.
Sebastian broke out in a cold sweat when he felt the temperature in the room drop rapidly.
The silence in the room was broken when Sebastian received a call from Scenic Garden Manor.
Sebastian instinctively glanced at Nathaniel, who nodded in response.
He quickly answered the phone, but the call only lasted about two seconds.
Sebastian’s face went pale as he turned to Nathaniel and said nervously, “Mr. Hadley, the housekeeper said Mrs. Hadley went to Scenic Garden Manor and gave your wife a hard time. Mrs. Hadley said your wife cheated on you.z
