Chapter 5 - Predestined Marriage

When Karen heard the sound of ˆsister-in-law", her face went dark deeply, and she gave Summer a stern and cold look.

Summer bit her lips up, was this "Douglas" trying to get her killed?

Karen held Summers hand and pulled her into the hall of the villa, then coldly let go.

She looked at Summer with a pale face, "Did the man just call you “sister-in-law? Is he Leonardơ's cousin?”

Summer nodded, "Uh."


Karen slapped Summer in the face with all of her strength. Summer's ears began to buzz.

"You have no shame, do you? What were you thinking about getting involved with your husband's cousin on the first day of your marriage! Are you trying to get yourself killed? Do you want to die? Go right ahead, but dorït you dare take us with you!”

When Karen turned away, Summer reached out to touch her face which was still in pain, she coldly looked up to Karen, 'Really? You cant even ask what happened?”

Every time something goes wrong no matter what happened or who was at fault, Summer was always the first to be blamed.

"One is an impotent and disfigured piece of garbage, the other, a normal and healthy man. I have eyes and you have eyes. It would be clear to everyone who to choose. You haven't already spent the night with this “cousin”, have you?”

A soft feminine voice came from the stairway, gently and soft, but full of malice.

Seeing Vicky came down, Karen rushed over to greet her, ˆVicky, do you feel better?”

"Thanks, Mom, I feel mụch better.' Vicky smiled gently to Karen and then went to Summer. "Summer, I can totally understand how you feel, but you should think about our family and show a little restraint.'

From an upstairs window, she saw Summer and a man kissing in the car. What didn't surprise her was that Summer was kissing a man who couldn't have been her husband, but that her ugly sister was actually kissing anyone at all.

Vicky then turned to look at Karen and asked innocently, 'Mom, am I right?"

Karen showed a smile," Of course my Vicky, you are right.'

Summer tightly clenched her hands and kept her mouth shut.

It was hard to remember which one of the two girls was Karen's biological daughter.

Over the years, Karen has always wanted to gain a firm foothold in Jarrett's house, she tried to please everyone in this house with everything she could, but this was done at the expense of Summers happiness.

Karers smile vanished when she turned to look at Summer with a severe face, “Summer since you have married into the Emerson family, you must fulfill your duty, dort you give our family a bad name."

Summer lowered her eyes, hiding her disdain inside. She still looked blank as a doormat. With a calm voice, she said, "You have reminded me that if you do something that pisses me off, I might do something stupid in front of the Emersons. Now, Ì am not sure if that would provoke them to do something to our family, but I wouldn't tempt me. Got it?”

Vicky did not expect Summer who had always been silly and rebellious, would say such words. She frowned and said, "What do you mean by that?"

"Just exactly what you heard." Summer looked up, with her eyes slightly closed, as dull as usual.

Did they really think she would still be insulted as a servart like before?

lt used to be like that. Summer had pretended to act humble in an attempt to please her and win her favor. lt was all she had. But after Karen had forced Summer to marry into the Emerson family on her sister's behalf, the fear of displeasing her mother was gone as well.


Vicky was already used to bossing Summer around, and this is the first time she saw Summer actually fight back.

She was so angry that she glared at Summer before she turned to look at Karen, 'Mom, how could she even say that?"

Of course, Karen could hear the threat in Summers words, but assuming that Summer would compromise with her no matter what like the past, she still put on a mothers airs and said sternly, Summer, apologize to your sister!"
