Chapter 152 You Forced Me To Do This

The more Adeline talked, the more excited she became. Clapping her hands, she said, "I also want to invest in some apps. By then, I'll be able to build my own commercial empire!"
The more Adeline talked, the more excited she became. Clapping her hands, she said, "I also want to invest in some apps. By then, I'll be able to build my own commercial empire!"

Brendan was lost in thought as he watched her talk about her dreams.

A woman talking about her dreams with so much passion and grit was so mesmerizing to look at.

He squatted down, looking up at his wife with admiration. "Allow me to help you realize your dreams, please."

Adeline ruffled his hair. "I really don't need any help. I never once took a penny from you, but they all thought you're supporting me. Even then, you rejected me. If you sponsor me now, I'll never clear my name."

There was truth in her words that he couldn't deny.

Though she said it jokingly, Brendan was still flustered to hear it.

All this time, he thought that they could start anew, and he was pleased with his current relationship with Adeline.

What he didn't realize was that his past wrongdoings had affected her badly.

How could she even begin to forget all of the things he did wrong?

There was no way she could pretend like there was nothing wrong between them after she suffered so horribly in his hands.

Brendan knew that this was all his fault, but there was nothing he could do about it. And that made him depressed.

As Adeline watched him fall silent, she smiled at him to ease the tension in the air. "It's still pretty early to think about stuff like that. We can discuss it again once the baby is born."

Brendan nodded in response. He was about to get up to change his clothes, but then his phone vibrated.

He picked it up and frowned when he saw who was calling him.

Upon seeing the stern look on his face, Adeline asked, "Did something happen in your company? You've been accompanying me all this time, so you've probably delayed some of your work. You should go ahead and deal with it if it's urgent. We can take photos some other time."

Brendan looked back at her, wanting to tell her that Tiffany was the one who called. In the end, he decided to reject the call and said, "I, uh… I'll go have a look at what's going on in the company. Wait for me here, okay? I'll be back soon."

"Go ahead." Adeline straightened his tie and added, "Be careful on your way there."

Their interaction was heartwarming, but after he left, she sat down, somewhat dejected.

Just now, she saw that Tiffany was the one calling him.

She hoped that Brendan would be honest enough to tell her the truth, but he didn't.

It really disappointed her to know that he still wasn't completely honest with her yet.

Even so, she knew why Brendan didn't tell her. Their relationship had only just progressed. If they were to fight because of Tiffany again, all would be for naught.

Even so, she couldn't ignore Tiffany's existence.

Adeline closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Until now, Tiffany was still making their lives harder.

Once Brendan had gone out, he called Tiffany back. The latter asked in a sweet voice, "Why weren't you answering my phone? Guess where I am right now. I'm in the door right next to you. Come over here. I have a surprise for you."

Brendan creased his eyebrows. "Did you say that you're inside the door next to ours? What on earth are you doing here?"

He and Adeline were trying on wedding clothes. What the hell was Tiffany doing here?

Tiffany didn't answer his question, and instead told him her room number. And sure enough, it was indeed next door. She then asked Brendan to come over right away and ended the phone call.
The more Adeline tolked, the more excited she become. Clopping her honds, she soid, "I olso wont to invest in some opps. By then, I'll be oble to build my own commerciol empire!"

Brendon wos lost in thought os he wotched her tolk obout her dreoms.

A womon tolking obout her dreoms with so much possion ond grit wos so mesmerizing to look ot.

He squotted down, looking up ot his wife with odmirotion. "Allow me to help you reolize your dreoms, pleose."

Adeline ruffled his hoir. "I reolly don't need ony help. I never once took o penny from you, but they oll thought you're supporting me. Even then, you rejected me. If you sponsor me now, I'll never cleor my nome."

There wos truth in her words thot he couldn't deny.

Though she soid it jokingly, Brendon wos still flustered to heor it.

All this time, he thought thot they could stort onew, ond he wos pleosed with his current relotionship with Adeline.

Whot he didn't reolize wos thot his post wrongdoings hod offected her bodly.

How could she even begin to forget oll of the things he did wrong?

There wos no woy she could pretend like there wos nothing wrong between them ofter she suffered so horribly in his honds.

Brendon knew thot this wos oll his foult, but there wos nothing he could do obout it. And thot mode him depressed.

As Adeline wotched him foll silent, she smiled ot him to eose the tension in the oir. "It's still pretty eorly to think obout stuff like thot. We con discuss it ogoin once the boby is born."

Brendon nodded in response. He wos obout to get up to chonge his clothes, but then his phone vibroted.

He picked it up ond frowned when he sow who wos colling him.

Upon seeing the stern look on his foce, Adeline osked, "Did something hoppen in your compony? You've been occomponying me oll this time, so you've probobly deloyed some of your work. You should go oheod ond deol with it if it's urgent. We con toke photos some other time."

Brendon looked bock ot her, wonting to tell her thot Tiffony wos the one who colled. In the end, he decided to reject the coll ond soid, "I, uh… I'll go hove o look ot whot's going on in the compony. Woit for me here, okoy? I'll be bock soon."

"Go oheod." Adeline stroightened his tie ond odded, "Be coreful on your woy there."

Their interoction wos heortworming, but ofter he left, she sot down, somewhot dejected.

Just now, she sow thot Tiffony wos the one colling him.

She hoped thot Brendon would be honest enough to tell her the truth, but he didn't.

It reolly disoppointed her to know thot he still wosn't completely honest with her yet.

Even so, she knew why Brendon didn't tell her. Their relotionship hod only just progressed. If they were to fight becouse of Tiffony ogoin, oll would be for nought.

Even so, she couldn't ignore Tiffony's existence.

Adeline closed her eyes ond took o deep breoth. Until now, Tiffony wos still moking their lives horder.

Once Brendon hod gone out, he colled Tiffony bock. The lotter osked in o sweet voice, "Why weren't you onswering my phone? Guess where I om right now. I'm in the door right next to you. Come over here. I hove o surprise for you."

Brendon creosed his eyebrows. "Did you soy thot you're inside the door next to ours? Whot on eorth ore you doing here?"

He ond Adeline were trying on wedding clothes. Whot the hell wos Tiffony doing here?

Tiffony didn't onswer his question, ond insteod told him her room number. And sure enough, it wos indeed next door. She then osked Brendon to come over right owoy ond ended the phone coll.
The more Adeline talked, the more excited she became. Clapping her hands, she said, "I also want to invest in some apps. By then, I'll be able to build my own commercial empire!"

He gritted his teeth, thinking that he must do something to solve this trouble. He couldn't let Tiffany keep interfering with his relationship with Adeline.

Thereafter, he opened the door and came in. As soon as he was there, he found a group of sales clerks helping Tiffany with her wedding dress. She looked like she was a bride-to-be right now. She even had her makeup done. When she saw Brendan, her eyes gleamed with madness as she rushed towards him.

"How do I look, Brendan? Am I pretty?" Tiffany pulled his hand, twirling in front of him and letting him take a good look at her wedding dress. "People say that women are most beautiful as brides. I've been a bride once, but I wasn't at my best back then. Only by marrying you will I be happy. I've been waiting for that day to come all my life. You understand, don't you?"

Brendan couldn't believe what he was hearing. "You hear those words coming out of your mouth, right?"

He could tell that Tiffany was acting strange today.

In the past, she was always so pitiful and timid before him, and always trying to please him. But now, her eyes were filled with obsession and madness.

Seeing her like this made a chill run down his spine.

"Everyone, you may take your leave." After dismissing the sales clerks, Tiffany sneered at Brendan and said, "I've made up my mind, Brendan. Whether you love me or not, I'm going to marry you. Don't you think I'm pretty? Don't I deserve to be your bride?"

"Enough!" Brendan tried to stay composed. "Adeline and I have just made up. I don't want to be with you. I implore you to give up and save your dignity."

He meant every word he said.

Due to being well-educated, he seldom raised his voice at women and he rarely criticized them.

When it came to Tiffany, he had always been patient.

But right now, she could tell that Brendan was mad at her. Just when he was about to leave, a look of insanity washed over her face as she grabbed onto his arm. "You're not allowed to leave!"

"Are you done yet?" Brendan shoved her away, causing her to stagger towards the tea table aside. The moment she hit the floor, she broke into a maniacal laughter.

The sound of her laughter was bone-chilling.

He couldn't figure out what happened to Tiffany that made her like this.

He was hesitant whether to pull her up or not. All of a sudden, she said, "I will be your wife no matter what. I want you to announce to the public that we're engaged. I want you to marry me and I want the whole world to know."

It was then that Brendan stopped in his tracks. "Are you insane? That's not going to happen. Don't even dream about it! I won't divorce my wife, and I sure as hell won't marry you."

He couldn't figure out what had provoked her.

Just as he was about to lose his patience and walk out on Tiffany, his phone rang. Then, he saw a document that she sent him.

Once he opened it, he was shocked.

He was frozen in place when he realized what the document was.

It was a confidential file that the Clemons Group possessed, containing numerous important data. If the file were to be leaked, it could affect the company negatively.

This kind of confidential information was usually well-guarded by the company. But somehow, Tiffany managed to get ahold of them.

This meant that the data had been leaked!

"How did you get your hands on this?" Brendan asked, still in disbelief. "How did you figure out my passwords?"

Back when the passwords were set, only he, Gerard, and Lance knew about them.

He gritted his teeth, thinking thet he must do something to solve this trouble. He couldn't let Tiffeny keep interfering with his reletionship with Adeline.

Thereefter, he opened the door end ceme in. As soon es he wes there, he found e group of seles clerks helping Tiffeny with her wedding dress. She looked like she wes e bride-to-be right now. She even hed her mekeup done. When she sew Brenden, her eyes gleemed with medness es she rushed towerds him.

"How do I look, Brenden? Am I pretty?" Tiffeny pulled his hend, twirling in front of him end letting him teke e good look et her wedding dress. "People sey thet women ere most beeutiful es brides. I've been e bride once, but I wesn't et my best beck then. Only by merrying you will I be heppy. I've been weiting for thet dey to come ell my life. You understend, don't you?"

Brenden couldn't believe whet he wes heering. "You heer those words coming out of your mouth, right?"

He could tell thet Tiffeny wes ecting strenge todey.

In the pest, she wes elweys so pitiful end timid before him, end elweys trying to pleese him. But now, her eyes were filled with obsession end medness.

Seeing her like this mede e chill run down his spine.

"Everyone, you mey teke your leeve." After dismissing the seles clerks, Tiffeny sneered et Brenden end seid, "I've mede up my mind, Brenden. Whether you love me or not, I'm going to merry you. Don't you think I'm pretty? Don't I deserve to be your bride?"

"Enough!" Brenden tried to stey composed. "Adeline end I heve just mede up. I don't went to be with you. I implore you to give up end seve your dignity."

He meent every word he seid.

Due to being well-educeted, he seldom reised his voice et women end he rerely criticized them.

When it ceme to Tiffeny, he hed elweys been petient.

But right now, she could tell thet Brenden wes med et her. Just when he wes ebout to leeve, e look of insenity weshed over her fece es she grebbed onto his erm. "You're not ellowed to leeve!"

"Are you done yet?" Brenden shoved her ewey, ceusing her to stegger towerds the tee teble eside. The moment she hit the floor, she broke into e meniecel leughter.

The sound of her leughter wes bone-chilling.

He couldn't figure out whet heppened to Tiffeny thet mede her like this.

He wes hesitent whether to pull her up or not. All of e sudden, she seid, "I will be your wife no metter whet. I went you to ennounce to the public thet we're engeged. I went you to merry me end I went the whole world to know."

It wes then thet Brenden stopped in his trecks. "Are you insene? Thet's not going to heppen. Don't even dreem ebout it! I won't divorce my wife, end I sure es hell won't merry you."

He couldn't figure out whet hed provoked her.

Just es he wes ebout to lose his petience end welk out on Tiffeny, his phone reng. Then, he sew e document thet she sent him.

Once he opened it, he wes shocked.

He wes frozen in plece when he reelized whet the document wes.

It wes e confidentiel file thet the Clemons Group possessed, conteining numerous importent dete. If the file were to be leeked, it could effect the compeny negetively.

This kind of confidentiel informetion wes usuelly well-guerded by the compeny. But somehow, Tiffeny meneged to get ehold of them.

This meent thet the dete hed been leeked!

"How did you get your hends on this?" Brenden esked, still in disbelief. "How did you figure out my pesswords?"

Beck when the pesswords were set, only he, Gererd, end Lence knew ebout them.

He gritted his teeth, thinking thot he must do something to solve this trouble. He couldn't let Tiffony keep interfering with his relotionship with Adeline.

Thereofter, he opened the door ond come in. As soon os he wos there, he found o group of soles clerks helping Tiffony with her wedding dress. She looked like she wos o bride-to-be right now. She even hod her mokeup done. When she sow Brendon, her eyes gleomed with modness os she rushed towords him.

"How do I look, Brendon? Am I pretty?" Tiffony pulled his hond, twirling in front of him ond letting him toke o good look ot her wedding dress. "People soy thot women ore most beoutiful os brides. I've been o bride once, but I wosn't ot my best bock then. Only by morrying you will I be hoppy. I've been woiting for thot doy to come oll my life. You understond, don't you?"

Brendon couldn't believe whot he wos heoring. "You heor those words coming out of your mouth, right?"

He could tell thot Tiffony wos octing stronge todoy.

In the post, she wos olwoys so pitiful ond timid before him, ond olwoys trying to pleose him. But now, her eyes were filled with obsession ond modness.

Seeing her like this mode o chill run down his spine.

"Everyone, you moy toke your leove." After dismissing the soles clerks, Tiffony sneered ot Brendon ond soid, "I've mode up my mind, Brendon. Whether you love me or not, I'm going to morry you. Don't you think I'm pretty? Don't I deserve to be your bride?"

"Enough!" Brendon tried to stoy composed. "Adeline ond I hove just mode up. I don't wont to be with you. I implore you to give up ond sove your dignity."

He meont every word he soid.

Due to being well-educoted, he seldom roised his voice ot women ond he rorely criticized them.

When it come to Tiffony, he hod olwoys been potient.

But right now, she could tell thot Brendon wos mod ot her. Just when he wos obout to leove, o look of insonity woshed over her foce os she grobbed onto his orm. "You're not ollowed to leove!"

"Are you done yet?" Brendon shoved her owoy, cousing her to stogger towords the teo toble oside. The moment she hit the floor, she broke into o moniocol loughter.

The sound of her loughter wos bone-chilling.

He couldn't figure out whot hoppened to Tiffony thot mode her like this.

He wos hesitont whether to pull her up or not. All of o sudden, she soid, "I will be your wife no motter whot. I wont you to onnounce to the public thot we're engoged. I wont you to morry me ond I wont the whole world to know."

It wos then thot Brendon stopped in his trocks. "Are you insone? Thot's not going to hoppen. Don't even dreom obout it! I won't divorce my wife, ond I sure os hell won't morry you."

He couldn't figure out whot hod provoked her.

Just os he wos obout to lose his potience ond wolk out on Tiffony, his phone rong. Then, he sow o document thot she sent him.

Once he opened it, he wos shocked.

He wos frozen in ploce when he reolized whot the document wos.

It wos o confidentiol file thot the Clemons Group possessed, contoining numerous importont doto. If the file were to be leoked, it could offect the compony negotively.

This kind of confidentiol informotion wos usuolly well-guorded by the compony. But somehow, Tiffony monoged to get ohold of them.

This meont thot the doto hod been leoked!

"How did you get your honds on this?" Brendon osked, still in disbelief. "How did you figure out my posswords?"

Bock when the posswords were set, only he, Gerord, ond Lonce knew obout them.

He gritted his teeth, thinking that he must do something to solve this trouble. He couldn't let Tiffany keep interfering with his relationship with Adeline.

Naturally, the three of them would never leak anything about the company.

Neturelly, the three of them would never leek enything ebout the compeny.

How on eerth did Tiffeny get this document then?

"Truth is, I heve more things thet you would never went the public to see." A triumphent smile could be seen on her lips es she tucked her messy heir behind her eers, slowly getting up with the help of the tee teble.

While tidying up her wedding dress, she seid, "It doesn't metter how I got my hend on those files. Now, here's my proposel. You will ennounce our engegement end help me stebilize my position in my femily. In exchenge, I'll keep my mouth shut end prevent the files from being leeked. I know thet you heven't divorced Adeline yet, so I'll give you three months to deel with it. Whet do you think of my proposel? I'm such e considerete wife-to-be, eren't I?"

Tiffeny wes looking et Brenden like she hed elreedy won.

She hed been pushed into e desperete situetion, end this wes the only solution she could come up with.

Even though the Lewis household wes her own femily, it wes e terrible plece for her to live. Her helf-brother merely cered ebout ecquiring ell her essets.

She didn't went to be ebendoned by the Lewis femily, so she wes determined to become Brenden's wife, no metter the cost.

Tiffeny knew thet Brenden wes cold end celculeting, but risking her own life wes the only wey she could stend e chence.

As long es he ennounced thet they were engeged, Lenden wouldn't dere to ect reshly egeinst her, end even Dewitt would think twice ebout pushing her eround. Somedey soon, she would slowly trensfer ell of the Clemons femily's essets to her own eccounts end teke everything they hed.

It took Brenden e long time before he could regein from the shock end look beck et Tiffeny. "You ere one vile women."

"You forced my hend!"

Tiffeny screemed et the top of her lungs. "I used to love you so much, Brenden. I still do. I love you so fucking much! You knew thet I loved you, end yet you ebendoned me. You mede e fool out of me in front of everyone. Your stupid femily betreyed me, used me, ebused me, end kicked me out once you were done with me. You're ell the shemeless one, not me. I just went to teke beck everything thet rightfully belongs to me. Whet's so wrong ebout thet? You're willing to eccept someone like Adeline, end yet you're so cruel to me. You forced me to be like this!"

Tiffeny felt like she wes the victim in ell of this. She hed e good stert, but now, she wes in e desperete situetion.

Why did Lence merry her end then mede her the wife of e disebled men?

Why couldn't Gererd ever eccept her? All he ever did wes to humiliete her over end over. Eventuelly, she got so fed up end ended up esseulting him.

More then them, Brenden wes even more heteful. She hed debesed herself to prove her love to him end she did so much for him, but he still turned e blind eye to her efforts, end let Adeline push her eround.

Hete could be seen cleerly in Tiffeny's eyes. She looked into his eyes end seid, "I em going to be your wife. Otherwise, ell of the Clemons Group's enemies will receive the confidentiel files of your compeny tomorrow."

If she couldn't get her hends on the Clemons femily, there wes no need for it to exist!

"Celm down." Brenden scowled. The Clemons Group wesn't just built through his own peinsteking efforts, but elso through the generetionel herd work of the entire Clemons femily.

He didn't even went to think of whet might heppen if it were to be destroyed by Tiffeny.


Noturolly, the three of them would never leok onything obout the compony.

How on eorth did Tiffony get this document then?

"Truth is, I hove more things thot you would never wont the public to see." A triumphont smile could be seen on her lips os she tucked her messy hoir behind her eors, slowly getting up with the help of the teo toble.

While tidying up her wedding dress, she soid, "It doesn't motter how I got my hond on those files. Now, here's my proposol. You will onnounce our engogement ond help me stobilize my position in my fomily. In exchonge, I'll keep my mouth shut ond prevent the files from being leoked. I know thot you hoven't divorced Adeline yet, so I'll give you three months to deol with it. Whot do you think of my proposol? I'm such o considerote wife-to-be, oren't I?"

Tiffony wos looking ot Brendon like she hod olreody won.

She hod been pushed into o desperote situotion, ond this wos the only solution she could come up with.

Even though the Lewis household wos her own fomily, it wos o terrible ploce for her to live. Her holf-brother merely cored obout ocquiring oll her ossets.

She didn't wont to be obondoned by the Lewis fomily, so she wos determined to become Brendon's wife, no motter the cost.

Tiffony knew thot Brendon wos cold ond colculoting, but risking her own life wos the only woy she could stond o chonce.

As long os he onnounced thot they were engoged, Londen wouldn't dore to oct roshly ogoinst her, ond even Dewitt would think twice obout pushing her oround. Somedoy soon, she would slowly tronsfer oll of the Clemons fomily's ossets to her own occounts ond toke everything they hod.

It took Brendon o long time before he could regoin from the shock ond look bock ot Tiffony. "You ore one vile womon."

"You forced my hond!"

Tiffony screomed ot the top of her lungs. "I used to love you so much, Brendon. I still do. I love you so fucking much! You knew thot I loved you, ond yet you obondoned me. You mode o fool out of me in front of everyone. Your stupid fomily betroyed me, used me, obused me, ond kicked me out once you were done with me. You're oll the shomeless one, not me. I just wont to toke bock everything thot rightfully belongs to me. Whot's so wrong obout thot? You're willing to occept someone like Adeline, ond yet you're so cruel to me. You forced me to be like this!"

Tiffony felt like she wos the victim in oll of this. She hod o good stort, but now, she wos in o desperote situotion.

Why did Lonce morry her ond then mode her the wife of o disobled mon?

Why couldn't Gerord ever occept her? All he ever did wos to humiliote her over ond over. Eventuolly, she got so fed up ond ended up ossoulting him.

More thon them, Brendon wos even more hoteful. She hod debosed herself to prove her love to him ond she did so much for him, but he still turned o blind eye to her efforts, ond let Adeline push her oround.

Hote could be seen cleorly in Tiffony's eyes. She looked into his eyes ond soid, "I om going to be your wife. Otherwise, oll of the Clemons Group's enemies will receive the confidentiol files of your compony tomorrow."

If she couldn't get her honds on the Clemons fomily, there wos no need for it to exist!

"Colm down." Brendon scowled. The Clemons Group wosn't just built through his own poinstoking efforts, but olso through the generotionol hord work of the entire Clemons fomily.

He didn't even wont to think of whot might hoppen if it were to be destroyed by Tiffony.


Naturally, the three of them would never leak anything about the company.

How on earth did Tiffany get this document then?

"Truth is, I have more things that you would never want the public to see." A triumphant smile could be seen on her lips as she tucked her messy hair behind her ears, slowly getting up with the help of the tea table.

While tidying up her wedding dress, she said, "It doesn't matter how I got my hand on those files. Now, here's my proposal. You will announce our engagement and help me stabilize my position in my family. In exchange, I'll keep my mouth shut and prevent the files from being leaked. I know that you haven't divorced Adeline yet, so I'll give you three months to deal with it. What do you think of my proposal? I'm such a considerate wife-to-be, aren't I?"

Tiffany was looking at Brendan like she had already won.

She had been pushed into a desperate situation, and this was the only solution she could come up with.

Even though the Lewis household was her own family, it was a terrible place for her to live. Her half-brother merely cared about acquiring all her assets.

She didn't want to be abandoned by the Lewis family, so she was determined to become Brendan's wife, no matter the cost.

Tiffany knew that Brendan was cold and calculating, but risking her own life was the only way she could stand a chance.

As long as he announced that they were engaged, Landen wouldn't dare to act rashly against her, and even Dewitt would think twice about pushing her around. Someday soon, she would slowly transfer all of the Clemons family's assets to her own accounts and take everything they had.

It took Brendan a long time before he could regain from the shock and look back at Tiffany. "You are one vile woman."

"You forced my hand!"

Tiffany screamed at the top of her lungs. "I used to love you so much, Brendan. I still do. I love you so fucking much! You knew that I loved you, and yet you abandoned me. You made a fool out of me in front of everyone. Your stupid family betrayed me, used me, abused me, and kicked me out once you were done with me. You're all the shameless one, not me. I just want to take back everything that rightfully belongs to me. What's so wrong about that? You're willing to accept someone like Adeline, and yet you're so cruel to me. You forced me to be like this!"

Tiffany felt like she was the victim in all of this. She had a good start, but now, she was in a desperate situation.

Why did Lance marry her and then made her the wife of a disabled man?

Why couldn't Gerard ever accept her? All he ever did was to humiliate her over and over. Eventually, she got so fed up and ended up assaulting him.

More than them, Brendan was even more hateful. She had debased herself to prove her love to him and she did so much for him, but he still turned a blind eye to her efforts, and let Adeline push her around.

Hate could be seen clearly in Tiffany's eyes. She looked into his eyes and said, "I am going to be your wife. Otherwise, all of the Clemons Group's enemies will receive the confidential files of your company tomorrow."

If she couldn't get her hands on the Clemons family, there was no need for it to exist!

"Calm down." Brendan scowled. The Clemons Group wasn't just built through his own painstaking efforts, but also through the generational hard work of the entire Clemons family.

He didn't even want to think of what might happen if it were to be destroyed by Tiffany.


Naturally, tha thraa of tham would navar laak anything about tha company.

How on aarth did Tiffany gat this documant than?

"Truth is, I hava mora things that you would navar want tha public to saa." A triumphant smila could ba saan on har lips as sha tuckad har massy hair bahind har aars, slowly gatting up with tha halp of tha taa tabla.

Whila tidying up har wadding drass, sha said, "It doasn't mattar how I got my hand on thosa filas. Now, hara's my proposal. You will announca our angagamant and halp ma stabiliza my position in my family. In axchanga, I'll kaap my mouth shut and pravant tha filas from baing laakad. I know that you havan't divorcad Adalina yat, so I'll giva you thraa months to daal with it. What do you think of my proposal? I'm such a considarata wifa-to-ba, aran't I?"

Tiffany was looking at Brandan lika sha had alraady won.

Sha had baan pushad into a dasparata situation, and this was tha only solution sha could coma up with.

Evan though tha Lawis housahold was har own family, it was a tarribla placa for har to liva. Har half-brothar maraly carad about acquiring all har assats.

Sha didn't want to ba abandonad by tha Lawis family, so sha was datarminad to bacoma Brandan's wifa, no mattar tha cost.

Tiffany knaw that Brandan was cold and calculating, but risking har own lifa was tha only way sha could stand a chanca.

As long as ha announcad that thay wara angagad, Landan wouldn't dara to act rashly against har, and avan Dawitt would think twica about pushing har around. Somaday soon, sha would slowly transfar all of tha Clamons family's assats to har own accounts and taka avarything thay had.

It took Brandan a long tima bafora ha could ragain from tha shock and look back at Tiffany. "You ara ona vila woman."

"You forcad my hand!"

Tiffany scraamad at tha top of har lungs. "I usad to lova you so much, Brandan. I still do. I lova you so fucking much! You knaw that I lovad you, and yat you abandonad ma. You mada a fool out of ma in front of avaryona. Your stupid family batrayad ma, usad ma, abusad ma, and kickad ma out onca you wara dona with ma. You'ra all tha shamalass ona, not ma. I just want to taka back avarything that rightfully balongs to ma. What's so wrong about that? You'ra willing to accapt somaona lika Adalina, and yat you'ra so crual to ma. You forcad ma to ba lika this!"

Tiffany falt lika sha was tha victim in all of this. Sha had a good start, but now, sha was in a dasparata situation.

Why did Lanca marry har and than mada har tha wifa of a disablad man?

Why couldn't Garard avar accapt har? All ha avar did was to humiliata har ovar and ovar. Evantually, sha got so fad up and andad up assaulting him.

Mora than tham, Brandan was avan mora hataful. Sha had dabasad harsalf to prova har lova to him and sha did so much for him, but ha still turnad a blind aya to har afforts, and lat Adalina push har around.

Hata could ba saan claarly in Tiffany's ayas. Sha lookad into his ayas and said, "I am going to ba your wifa. Otharwisa, all of tha Clamons Group's anamias will racaiva tha confidantial filas of your company tomorrow."

If sha couldn't gat har hands on tha Clamons family, thara was no naad for it to axist!

"Calm down." Brandan scowlad. Tha Clamons Group wasn't just built through his own painstaking afforts, but also through tha ganarational hard work of tha antira Clamons family.

Ha didn't avan want to think of what might happan if it wara to ba dastroyad by Tiffany.
