Arianne scowled, “What are you talking about? What has using your brain got to do with your child’s intelligence? You silly goose! Anyways, you aren’t in contact with Alejandro anymore and you should stay away from him. To be honest, I always get a very strange feeling when I see him, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Anyway, you should rest at home and prepare to be the most beautiful bride tomorrow.”Tiffany smiled and said, “Alright then, you should come early tomorrow morning and accompany me. I’ll leave Smore with Mark; he’s married, so he can’t be the bridesman. The same goes to you; you can’t be my bridesmaid either, so I had to spend a sum to hire someone to do it, and neither of them are people I know.”As she said this, Arianne thought of Eric again. He would be the bridesman if he were still around.Shortly after, Jackson had arrived for Tiffany, but Lilian stopped him right by the doorstep. “Jackson, you’re not allowed to enter this door before the wedding day—it’s
Mark seemed amused as he looked at her. “What do you mean? Go on, tell me what you think.”She lost confidence from the way Mark had looked at her. “I’m not as smart as you, so you can think about it yourself. I’ve got nothing to say.”He got up and stood in front of her, then slowly picked up Smores. “I know what you’re trying to say. You’re suspecting that this Alejandro isn’t the real Alejandro, and you’re suspecting that… Ethan is somehow involved with him, right? I have the same suspicions, but where’s the evidence? There is none. So unless we can get our hands on some concrete evidence, we have no way to confirm or prove it.”Arianne knew that Mark had the same thoughts as she did. “I haven’t told Tiffany about this since it’s only our suspicions. I’ve met Alejandro before, and I felt strange when I did. He felt so familiar yet so distant. He has always been going against you, yet he wasn’t being nasty about it. But he’s trying to get close to Tiffany on purpose, and that’s wh
She had never missed Helen more than she did at that moment, her feelings mixed with hatred.When it was almost eight, Jackson and his crew arrived and parked downstairs. A lot of details had been skipped because of Tiffany’s pregnancy, not wanting to make it hard for her. Therefore, Jackson entered the house without any obstructions and personally carried Tiffany out of the house and into the car.Arianna was supposed to take care of Tiffany closely, getting in the car with them as well, sitting in the driver’s seat while the couple sat at the back. Lilian had gotten into the second car.After going around almost half the city, they arrived at the hotel past eleven.It was hard for her to miss a handsome man with a child in his arms, so Arianne saw Mark carrying Smore amongst the crowd as she entered the hotel lounge. She was afraid that Smore would make a fuss if he saw her, so she decided not to meet up with them.The ballroom had been well decorated. it was not an exaggeration
At that moment, Tiffany didn’t dare to breathe too heavily, scared her tears would ruin her makeup.The priest then looked at her and asked, “Ms Lane, do you take Mr. West as your lawfully wedded husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him for all the days of your life?Tiffany choked and firmly stated, “I do!”The priest gently smiled, “You may now exchange your rings.”The bride and bridegroom held out each other’s rings, putting it on their wedding ring fingers. Before the priest could even say that he could kiss the bride, Jackson rushed up and impatient kissed Tiffany on the lips. Other than the taste of the lipstick, he could taste her lips. Finally, she was his.Summer’s cheers were the loudest from amongst the guests below the stage. She did not bother with the etiquettes of being a rich man’s wife, clapping her hands excitedly. With tears of joy falling from her eyes, she looked at Atticus
“I’m going out then. You stay and talk,” Summer said.Topics of conversation between the pair grew bolder once Summer left as Tiffany did not need to concern herself with her image anymore. She had to remain reserved while Summer was around. “Ari, why won’t you ask Mark to do a wedding ceremony too? I was stunned when I walked into the venue. They’ve really spared no effort. It’s like a dream. But when I thought of how it’ll all be taken down after the wedding, it seems like such a waste. A lot of money must have gone into this wedding. I never lifted a finger. The Wests really care about me, and I feel so important, like a precious treasure. I’m so blessed…”Arianne shrugged. “Mark and I are pretty much an old married couple. Why should we have a wedding ceremony? We’re just getting by. It does feel like a shame sometimes, but there’s no need. Humans should be more mature. We’ve already had our son’s one month celebration, so it’d look like a joke if we have a wedding ceremony now.”
“Stop it, you. You clearly want to go to sleep, and you’re using the baby as an excuse,” Jackson exclaimed snobbishly. “It’s agreed. We’re sleeping together. Don’t touch me or I won’t be able to sleep well and wake up tonight, and... Do whatever you want.”…Nighttime, Smith Estate.Jett drove Alejandro back from the hospital and helped him into a wheelchair. However, this time, it was no longer an act.Don Smith had prohibited Alejandro from getting medical treatment in the hospital for his legs, so he was discharged early. From now on, a personal doctor would administer an IV to him in order to decrease the inflammation.Jett stayed silent the whole time, unnerved. He had never expected so much to happen over the past few days, all during his time off of work. Alejandro’s real identity was no longer a secret, but Don Smith hadn’t had time to speak to him yet. He had been by Alejandro’s side for a while, so it would be impossible for him to say that he was unaware of it. He wasn’
Jett kept his head very low, answering, “I did not. He’d always be extra cautious with me. He wouldn’t let me get too close to him.”Obviously, the old man didn’t believe him, commenting, “I’ve always liked you, Jett. I hope you’re not lying to me. You’re very different from how you used to be. You used to be a loner, but now, you have a family to feed…”Jett frowned, “Sir, I really had no idea. I’ve never… Betrayed you either.”Melanie hesitated for two seconds when she heard this, then strode forward. “Grandfather, may I have a word with you in private?”Don Smith’s face switched to a kindly expression when he saw Melanie. “Of course. Come, talk to me. Jett, you may be excused.”Jett shot Melanie a grateful look, then hurried away.Melanie secretly let out a sigh of relief, then got straight to the point. “Grandfather, it was wrong of Alex to fake his handicap and lie to you. I told him about your plans to kill Tiffany because I didn’t want him to be upset. It’s all my fault.
Suddenly, Tiffany flipped up like a carp, as if she had been startled. As a result, the pair stared at each other, cradling their foreheads in pain. Jackson never thought that Tiffany would be so careless in spite of her pregnancy, getting up so roughly like that. His forehead had ended up colliding with hers. He hadn’t even had the chance to avoid her.Tiffany was close to tears from the pain. “What were you doing? That hurt…”He was both innocent and helpless. “What do you mean? I just came upstairs to wake you up for dinner. Can’t you get up more gently? I’ve never met a more careless pregnant woman in my life. Come on, get up or the dishes will grow cold.”Tiffany went into a daze, then returned to her senses. “I dreamt that we broke up again, then I heard you calling me for dinner and remembered that we’re married, and we’ll never be apart again. But I was in a daze, so I didn’t know what was a dream and what was reality. I wanted to find out which was real as soon as possible.
