Thaddeus just stood there, taking Evadne’s sharp words like a punch to the gut, unable to fight back.
Because she was right. He did all those things, didn’t he?
“Evadne, I have nothing to do with Edith. I’ve never considered her my sister!” Thaddeus was so worked up he was red in the ears, his voice turning
He wasn’t one to explain himself, but he was on edge this time!
“Why are you telling me this? What’s it got to do with me?”
Evadne was done putting up with him, her gaze full of disgust, “Whatever’s going on between you two has nothing to do with me. I don’t wanna hear your explanations. Move, I’ve got a fashion show to catch.”
“You don’t care? Then why bring it up? You did at the police station, and you’re doing it now!”
Thaddeus hated this misunderstanding, his eyes turning red, shoulders shaking, “If you care about who I’m with, that means you still care about me! You’re not as indifferent or laid–back as you claim to be!”
“I’m not caring. I’m repulsed. I’m repulsed by you, Thaddeus.”
Evadne looked at him firmly, pried his fingers off her arrn and pulled free, “If I’d known there were other women around you, I’d never have fallen for you. Now, I’m glad I left you early. But I still feel sick, because I once loved a man who’s fickle and can’t own up to his actions!”
Thaddeus started panting heavier, the pain of being misunderstood choking him.
So this was what it felt like to be wronged, like his heart was being torn apart.
Evadne was slightly taken aback by the pain in Thaddeus‘ eyes.
But she didn’t linger. She turned and left resolutely.
She thought, “Evadne, let the past be the past. No matter how unbearable, how passionate, and how profound that is, there’s no turning back.”
Just then, Evadne’s phone rang, it was Jason.
“Jason, what’s up?” she tried to calm down.
“Ms. Evadne, we’ve got trouble! Check out Twitter, now!” Jason was frantic, his voice going all high–pitched!
Evadne felt a sinking feeling, a sense of foreboding creeping in.
She quickly picked up her phone and checked the trending topics on Twitter.
Instantly, her face turned pale, and she cursed under her breath,
The top trend was the leak of Ada Ang’s wedding design!
The wedding scene photos painstakingly planned by her and her team were posted all over the internet!
All of it completely exposed!
Thaddeus, who was still brooding, heard Evadne curse. He was taken aback at first, and then he smirked.
She had become more lively since leaving him. She was full of vitality, warmth, and way more adorable than the cautious woman who used to stick by his side.
He took steps towards her.
But at that moment, she took off towards the other end of the hallway in her high heels, leaving him far behind.
Thaddeus instantly sensed something was off. He watched Evadne’s retreating figure, took out his phone and dialed Gordon.
“Is there a problem at K Orld Hotel?” the man asked sharply.
“Yes, Mr. Thaddeus, I was just about to report this to you!”
Gordon sounded anxious, “The wedding photos that K Orld Hotel set up for Ada were leaked on Twitter! It’s being shared massively and it’s the top trend!”
Thaddeus furrowed his brows, “Who’s behind this?”
“It’s a self–media with a large following. They didn’t take the regular route!”
“This guy dares to expose anything. He has no scruples at all!” Thaddeus’s eyes darkened.
“Mr. Thaddeus, will this leak affect Mrs. Abernathy?” Gordon asked nervously.
“Definitely. Or else why would she, who’s always as steady as a rock, just bolt like a rabbit?”
Thaddeus was still looking in the direction Evadne left, his heart was pounding for her, “If I’m not mistaken, Ada and Evadne must have included a clause in their contract, no early leaks of any wedding details, or it’s a breach of contract.”
“Breach of contract?! That serious!”
“Now that the wedding scene is leaked, it’s confirmed that K Orld Hotel breached the contract. Next, even if K Orld Hotel doesn’t have to compensate Ada financially, I think Ada will choose another host for her wedding. But, it definitely won’t be K Orld Hotel.” Thaddeus said grimly.
It meant that all of Evadne’s efforts were wasted!
And the prestigious K Orld Hotel was completely out of the picture!
“Oh my. Mrs. Abernathy is such a smart and wise woman. She’s always careful. How could she fall for this!”
Thaddeus‘ eyes were sharp, and his fist clenched in anger.
Normally, he’d be happy about K Orld Hotel’s misfortune, as they were competitors.
But he couldn’t find it in him to laugh at this moment.
“Gordon, investigate that self–media ASAP. Find the person responsible, and get to the bottom of this leak!”
The leak of Ada’s wedding scene quickly stirred up a storm.
Everyone at the fashion show heard about it, but the clueless spectators didn’t realize the gravity of the situation. They even praised Ada’s wedding in front of her, saying how grand and magnificent it was, like a dream wedding!
However, Ada’s face was getting grimmer by the minute.
Man, she didn’t even stick around for the whole show and didn’t even say hi to Alvin, just upped and left the venue, dodging everyone’s gaze.
But all this was caught by Edith and Glynnis, sitting opposite the catwalk!
“That Caroline’s fast on her feet, Edith said, her eyes exuding an ominous air that contrasted with her angelic face.
Seeing Ada storm off, she knew that she had accomplished what she set out to do.
Just because Evadne was the daughter of the richest man in Skyrim, even if she had ten thousand pieces of Alea’s jewelry, what good would that do? Edith thought, “In the end, you’ve been played by me, and you’ve failed utterly!”
“You gotta admit, that Caroline’s really sharp.”
Glynnis couldn’t help but admire, “She got snaps of the wedding in no time. Is she really a reporter? She’s more like a’spy!”
“For now, don’t reach out to Caroline. Don’t give anyone a handle on us.”
The determination in Edith’s eyes sparkled. She said with pride, “Hey, Glynnis, I’ve taken care of that nuisance Evadne for you. Whether you can win Ada’s heart now is all on you.”
“Oh, chill, with K Orld Hotel breaching the contract, Ada will definitely choose us, the Abernathy Group.”
Glynnis puffed up her chest, saying smugly, “Apart from us, the Abernathy Group, and K, who else in Elmsworth has got the chops to compete? If not us, who else can she choose, huh?”
