Chapter 13 The Wife Behaves Strangely Around Us

  • Daniel had never seen Dillon graveling at him for all these years, so he pretended to be jovial. “It is okay. We are all family.” But Karen glared at them indignantly. “Since Nicole has entered the high school at Royal Creek Institute, she had better not disgrace the Riddle family with lousy results.” So what if Nicole had entered the Royal Creek Institute? She would still be a disgrace for the Riddle family if she could not show results. Gloria’s expression subtly changed, but she plucked up the courage and said, “We will make sure Nicole delivers. Besides, Mr. Ellison is going to take care of her. Don’t you worry, Karen.” Karen’s expression darkened immediately, as she did not expect that Gloria would dare to shoot back. Seeing the situation, Dillon quickly stepped forward and dragged Karen away, saying, “It is getting late now. Hurry up. We have got to go.”
  • Daniel and Gloria looked at each other and could not help but feel proud of their daughter. When they were back at home, Daniel praised Nicole, saying, “You really made us proud today.” Daniel had been looked down upon in the family for so many years, and it was the first time he felt so proud. It was extremely satisfying whenever he thought of Karen’s red face. Karen had been bullying Gloria all this while, and this time, it was her turn to get a taste of her own medicine. Norah just went downstairs and sensed something was wrong when she heard this. “Dad, what made you so happy?” They should have come back in frustration when Nicole could not get into the Royal Creek Institute. Why did they praise Nicole instead? Seeing that his father was happy, Sean briefly told Norah what had happened and did not forget to look at Nicole.
  • “Nicole is the lucky star of our family.” Norah was wide-eyed. “Mr. Ellison invited her.” What was going on here? Why did Mr. Ellison invite Nicole to the school if they had only met once? “We didn’t expect that either, but Mr. Ellison had sent Nicole an invitation by email, asking her to report to the school tomorrow.” At first, Norah wanted to see Nicole get taunted. But Nicole did not suffer any embarrassment. Instead, she had made herself stand out. Norah immediately bit her lower lip and looked at Nicole with indignation. It really surprised her that this hillbilly was so capable. She had really underestimated her. “Congratulations.” Deep down inside, Norah was really upset, but she still pretended to be congratulatory. Nicole ignored her and said politely to her parents, “Dad, Mom, I am tired. I will go upstairs now.” “Go rest up.” Gloria said dotingly.
