Chapter 49 A Deadly Strike

  • “Have you heard? Quinlan and Lilith have called off their engagement! Hahaha! What a delightful piece of news!” Lisette, well-versed in the art of kicking someone when they were down, hit right at the heart of Harvey's concerns. “In the past, you benefited greatly from the marriage contract with the Zachmann family, didn't you? You made quite a bit of money. Those people, out of respect for the Zachmann family, naturally flattered and fawned over you. What a pity! What a pity... Once the marriage contract was canceled, there was no one left to flatter you, was there? I've also heard that Quinlan didn't fall ill. Oh dear, what a misfortune! Mr. Shelton and Mdm. Burton, would this be considered a dead loss or multiple losses? I really shouldn't be, at this time, rubbing salt into your wounds. However, I'm sorry. I'm the type to hold grudges, and my favorite thing to do is to kick someone when they're down! I really don't know who gave you this rotten idea, suggesting you could win my mother's heart again. I'm sorry to say, but what made you think my mother would be willing? My mother has remained unmarried all this while for my sake, fearing I might end up with an unreliable stepfather. Did you actually think it was for you? Wake up! You're an old man who's been bled dry by Selene. My mother wouldn't give you a second glance!”
  • “Lisette!” Harvey hadn't expected Lisette to mock him so mercilessly. Despite his thick skin, he was finding it hard to bear.
  • Lisette hit the nail on the head, leaving him somewhat unable to regain his dignity.
