Karen sounded extremely righteous, but Cheyenne couldn’t listen to her words any longer.
“Mom, regardless of how much money Lucas has, it all belongs to him. It has nothing to do with us! Also, I said that I won’t get a divorce. Why do you keep bringing this up?”
After saying that, Cheyenne carried the sleepy Amelia and headed upstairs.
Karen was so infuriated by Cheyenne’s reaction that she was speechless for a long time. She then faced the stairs and yelled in displeasure, “Who am I doing this for? It’s all for you! That good-for-nothing finally has some money now. If you don’t hurry and get it from him before dumping him, what are you keeping him around for? Seriously, you don’t listen to anything I say!”
William, who had drunk too much alcohol, was lying on the couch in a trance. Jolted awake by Karen’s sharp shrieking, he barked in annoyance, “Why are you yelling? You’re too noisy.”
Karen immediately vented her anger on him. “All you do is get drunk and throw a tantrum! You’re so useless! I’m worried sick for this family, and all of you are out to make me angry. I’m so unlucky to have married a good-for-nothing like you…”
Karen was wailing when the door suddenly opened with a loud creak, and Lucas entered.
Since the last time he paid Karen rent, she turned a blind eye and did not stop him from entering the house. Anyway, he wouldn’t do anything to Cheyenne. At most, he would play with Amelia. Apart from criticizing him and scolding him every now and then, Karen would treat him like he was transparent most of the time.
However, things were different now. Since Lucas was so generous as to give her fifteen thousand dollars previously, it meant that he definitely had a lot more cash on hand. But he never mentioned it before. Karen obviously wouldn’t be able to tolerate it.
She just disliked Lucas!

Karen looked up and was just about to scold him, but he simply nodded at the both of them and vanished immediately.
Lucas was gone before Karen could mock him, making her even more infuriated.
“Do you have any manners? Why aren’t you greeting your elders? Hmph, indeed, you’re lowly and ill-mannered! You even hid your personal stash from us. Hah, you’re just a live-in son-in-law who sponges off us. How dare you hide your money from us?! You’ve gone overboard!” Karen was scolding incessantly in the living room and deliberately slamming the broom against the rubbish bin.
Lucas was sitting by the bed in Cheyenne’s room, carefully holding the soundly sleeping Amelia and washing her feet for her. He completely ignored the scolding coming from downstairs.
In the beginning, he would still get angered by Karen’s harsh words. But now, he had long realized that it was not worth getting angry over her words.
But Karen was Cheyenne’s mother after all. So Lucas would treat her with basic respect, but that was as far as it went.
However, Cheyenne was utterly embarrassed. Even she found her mother’s words to be terribly callous. Please visit fr𝐞𝐞wn.𝒸o𝔪 website to read fastest update
“I’m sorry, my mom… she’s going through menopause, so she’s very ill-tempered and irritable recently. Don’t take it too hard.” Cheyenne racked her brain to come up with a reason for her mother’s actions.
Lucas smiled and didn’t say anything. Instead, he grabbed a soft towel and used it to wipe his daughter’s feet dry before carrying her to the bed and tucking her beneath the blanket.
After watching Lucas do all of this, Cheyenne felt more and more embarrassed.
A few days ago, she had been running a high fever after being in the rain. Amelia was worried about her but didn’t want to leave Lucas either, so Lucas brought Amelia to the room and slept on a mattress on the floor.
Today, Amelia had already fallen asleep, and the two of them were sharing the same room. So things got awkward, especially since she rejected Lucas’s proposal today.
Seemingly seeing how uneasy Cheyenne was, Lucas suddenly said, “I have something to attend to tonight, so I’ll get going.”
Before she said anything, he left.

Although he also wanted to stay and try to spend more time with her, he knew that they both needed time and that he couldn’t be too eager.
There was no peace in the Carter residence tonight.
During the banquet tonight, the Carters were humiliated in a way that they had never been before.
First, the shameless shrew Karen boasted and humiliated them at the door. Afterward, they ran into the usher who deliberately neglected them and even specially arranged for them to sit at a small and shabby table by the entrance. As a result, they became the laughing stock of all the prominent figures of Orange County!
After that, Flynn Davis of the Stardust Corporation made a speech, and countless families and businesses vied to cooperate with the Brilliance Corporation, which was just like a slap to their face!
The Brilliance Corporation still belonged to them a few days ago!
Of course, Cheyenne and Karen’s family irked them the most!
They were the garbage kicked out of the Carter family and had been disowned by them. Yet they managed to form connections with the Sawyers, the wealthiest family in Orange County, and even flaunted to them. They would never be able to tolerate this!
“Grandpa, are we going to let Cheyenne, her sister, and that shameless bitch Karen continue being haughty and trampling all over us?” The more Bryce thought about it, the more infuriated he was as he punched the couch hard.
His right wrist, which Lucas broke previously, was still wrapped in a thick layer of gauze.
In short, he felt that Cheyenne’s family was horrid, and he wanted all of them dead!
Dominic’s face was gloomy too. He had always been controlling, so after becoming the head of the family, he almost couldn’t tolerate any defiance.
After he kicked Cheyenne’s family out, they not only did not live a miserable life, but they even got acquainted with the Sawyers. How could the prideful Dominic Carter accept this?
“Bryce, is it true that their family is going to be the Sawyers’ in-law?” Dominic asked.
Despite being indignant, Bryce nonetheless nodded. “Grandpa, when I went to their home before, I saw Charlotte driving a limited edition luxury Lamborghini that costs at least a million dollars. Besides, I even heard that the Sawyers gave them more than just a sports car. They also gave them a villa, a few stores, and a million in cash. All of the gifts were delivered to them in a box! Furthermore, at the banquet today, I tried to make things hard for them, but the Sawyers sent someone over to say that there was a private room reserved for them. It seems to be true.”
Dominic stayed silent, but he looked even angrier.
At this moment, one of the Carters suddenly asked, “Those things belong to the Carters, so why should we give them to them?”
