Hazel wasn’t insulted, she could easily see that the woman in front of her was ill. It wasn’t that she was ignoring them, she obviously could not physically react to their presence.
Katherine quietly spoke to the woman, but no matter what she said, Stacy didn’t seem to hear her. The expression on her face never changed, and after a few moments, Katherine stood up a bit frustrated, “Stacy, get well, and I will come to visit again soon.”
As they left the room, Hazel was filled with mixed emotions, “She’s…?”
“Stacy Sloane, my friend….” Katherine paused for a moment before she finally said, “She may also be Joshua’s biological mother.”
Hazel let out a gasp. She had hoped Joshua would
Hazel looked at Hanson coldly. “I’m sorry, but I don’t think a shallow woman like me is good enough to have coffee with you.”Hanson didn’t hear any of the sarcasm in Hazel’s remark, he was too caught up in the idea that she was trying to get his attention.“Babe, are you trying to defend Hazel Crowe? Since you can walk into the office of Denmark Group so easily, you must know something about her, don’t you?” He chuckled and said, “She is an ugly girl who came out of nowhere, only to be the lost daughter of Denmark’s!”He didn’t even stop to take a breath, he just continued on, “If Denmark Group is put into the hands of someone who is brainless, has no looks, and no sense of business, won’t Denmark Group be in jeopardy? I am tr
Hazel’s brow furrowed slightly. She looked at the ring, turning it in her hand, but she could not find a hidden compartment. Besides, she knew it would be close to impossible to have a secret hidden in something as small as a ring.She looked at Joshua and was about to give up when she saw an inscription on the inside of the ring. She held up the ring and looked at it carefully.“With all my love from Joshua?” She read it out in a low voice.“Yes,” Joshua smiled and nodded. He was happy that she had found it.“Does your ring also have an inscription?” she asked curiously.“Yes.” He took his ring off and gave it to her. She looked inside and saw the inscription “With
Hazel was so furious that she wanted to throw away her phone. “When have you not been serious? You need to stop!”“I heard Joshua is planning a party for you?” Simon asked suddenly.She was about to hang up when she heard him. She stopped and curiously asked, “How do you know about the party?”“Joshua sent me an invitation. How else would I know?” He snarled with an evil grin.“But I am warning don’t to go to the party.” There was a sense of seriousness in Simon’s voice.Hazel was so irritated, as she hung up, she mumbled, “You really are insane!”Feeling frustrated, Hazel put her phone back
Hazel could not believe what she was hearing. As she stood there listening to their gossip, she forgot why she was even in the store, all she could think of was how Joshua suddenly become her older brother.The group of women continued chatting amongst themselves, they were dividing the Denmark family property up between her and Joshua as if they were the ones who owned it.“Even if she is Joshua Denmark’s younger sister, most of Denmark’s property should be given to him!”“What? I think that all of it should be given to Mr. Denmark. If it weren’t for him, the Denmark Group wouldn’t be as successful as it is!”“Yeah, I think as long as he keeps that woman living a life of luxury, he shouldn’t have to worry.&rdqu
Whenever Katie was losing a disagreement, she would cry. If she looked upset, men would often fall for her act, whether she was right or wrong, but women just seemed to blame her.It was the second time that her tearful performance didn’t work, the first time was when she had met Joshua at the auction. Katie thought for a moment, then her eyes widened, and she looked at Hazel with shock, “You, you….”Hazel smiled as she saw the look of disgust on Katie’s face, as she realized she was the one sitting beside Joshua at the auction. It was obvious that Katie had done some research on Joshua but not on who the woman was with him.“Are you that preoccupied that you forgot me already?” Hazel looked at her with a little smile.Katie&rsq
Hazel cocked her eyebrows slightly. Was she trying to kick her out?“Yeah, what you are! It’s disgraceful that we should buy the same brand of clothes as you!”“Call your manager over! I’ll make a complaint! When is the threshold of your store so low? Why do you allow some bad women to come in?”Hazel’s eyes got cold.She and Joshua had just married, which left her in a very good mood recently, so she would tolerate these people shouting in front of her, but Katie tested her patience again and again.Trying to kick her out? They’re not qualified!The manager was already alarmed by the loud noise outside.
Katie held her head up with pride. She enjoyed basking in any reflected glory of Joshua’s reputation. After all, she didn’t believe that anyone would really ask Joshua for confirmation.The manager looked at Katie like she was an idiot. How could she dream at this point?The guest Joshua Denmark had asked them to take care of was Hazel, whom these women have a hard time too!“In this case, Miss Shawn can ask Master Denmark to explain the situation personally.” The manager waved his hands impatiently. “Show them out.”Katie’s calm face froze. She really did not expect her trick to also fail, and the other side retorted with her statement!The women tried to argue, but the manager direc
Hazel’s cheeks turned a little red, but her heart was happy.In fact, she didn’t even notice how Jaxson addressed her, but Joshua did. His care for her really made her very happy.“Mrs. Denmark,” Jaxson sensibly changed the address and explained, “in the Shawn family, Grandma Shawn calls the shots on everything. Katie Shawn used to be Mr. Shawn’s illegitimate daughter. Later, Mrs. Shawn passed away, but Katie’s mother tried to please Grandma Shawn, so she married Mr. Shawn. This sort of thing often happened in rich families, but Katie has a half-sister, Callie Shawn, who is appreciated by Grandpa Anderson and is engaged to Master Anderson.”“Isaac Anderson?” Hazel was amazed and couldn’t help sighing with surprise. “Is she the girl I have seen b
