Charmine had gotten used to Joey’s hate-filled eyes
over the years. This Joey was utterly smitten with
Tiffany, too. Even if she found out Tiffany was the
adopted daughter, she would still side with her.
It felt like a drag for Charmine to even talk to them,
thus she coldly instructed, ” Someone, come and show
them the way out.”
The security guards who were supposed t o bring
Charmine out went to Amelia and the group instead.
With the white-hot pain still burning at Amelia’s
dislocated arm, she growled through gritted teeth,
“Don’t act all high and mighty, Charmine! I don’t want
to spend any more time in this stupid store; it’s too
dirty for me! Just wait for it, Charmine. I’ll let
everyone see your ugly face this afternoon, and your
reputation will be torn to shreds!”
Amelia did not let the guards touch her as she
struggled to walk out herself. Joey and Julian carried
Tiffany, and they glared at Charmine with
unadulterated hate. Tiffany, on the other hand, held
herself like a regal white swan, the cared-for princess,
though she secretly gave Charmine a dirty look
So what if she had a diamond shop? Charmine still
lost to her! Julian was hers, Joey was hers, and even
the Jordan family was hers!
Suddenly… “Wait,” came Charmine’s crisp voice.
Julian and the rest instinctively stopped t o look at
her; they were evidently taken aback, too.
“Please settle the bill for the broken gold-plated
display glass. That’s three hundred thousand bucks in
Charmine took a card machine and shook it before
Amelia, Joey, Julian, and Tiffany were utterly
Their eyes were red with hatred. Joey—the one with
the most grudge—snapped. “How shameless of you,
Charmine, to ask for money after all these years of
eating and using up the Jordan family’s resources!
And it’s three hundred thousand, too? 1
“Fine. Here’s three hundred thousand! But tonight,
you’ll have to come back to the Jordan family and pay
up all the money you’ve used throughout the years!”
Joey then took out a card and tossed it at Charmine.
Charmine picked up the card and threw it right back
at Joey. “Unfortunately, the display glass was broken
by Tiffany, so I’ll only take her money.” 1
Tiffany’s face turned red with anger. Her hand was
already wounded, and she still had to pay Charmine
300,000? Charmine was not letting her breathe!
She wanted nothing more than to kill Charmine on
the spot, but she quickly pulled herself together at the
thought of paparazzi outside and her plans. She
swallowed her anger and adapted a soothing voice.
“Mom, Sister is right,” she muttered. “I broke it, so I
should be paying for it.” She pulled out a card, though
her eyes burned with anger still. She wanted
Charmine to pay for her arrogance and this ludicrous
300,000 ‘ damage’.
After swiping the card, Charmine tossed the card
back to her. “You may leave now.”
The quartet walked out of the store with fume coming
out of their heads.
As they walked out, Amelia yelled, “Just you wait,
Charmine! Stay tuned for the press conference at
three o’clock today. I want to see you cry!” i
Charmine’s lips curled up. Cry? Oh, someone would
be crying, alright.
She then glanced around the store. “What are you all
standing here? Clean up the shop.”
“Yes,” replied the staff in unison before they began
Charmine was shameless but they were still
employees of this store, they needed the job.
The general manager feigned innocence a s she
pretended to take part in cleaning u p.
“You’re fired!” Charmine snapped. 1
In less than an hour, Twitter was deluged with
hashtags like these: 1
#Ohly- owner- is-CharmineJordan #Charmine-hit-
Tiffany #Charmine-push-Tiffany #Charmine- scoldedfoster-
These were the hottest discussions. Although it was
obvious that these were intentionally arranged to
criticize Charmine, the netizens merely joined in a s
long as they were entertaining.
[0MG! She was already exposed! How is she still so
[If it wasn’t for Joey Young, she would’ve died a long
time ago! How could she be so rude to her mother?]
