Chapter 106: The Mistress Scandal
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Although Quince Larson didn’t want to apologize, he had no other choice because his grandpa was now forcing him to do so. In the end, he looked at Finn Taylor. “I’m sorry.”
As soon as Quince Larson said his apology, the entire office fell into silence. Everyone seemed to be contemplating something.
Quince Larson felt very uncomfortable inwardly. ‘Today, I humiliated myself! I want revenge; I will definitely take revenge! As long as I have the chance, I’ll definitely take the chance to get my revenge on Yvette Larson and Finn Taylor. I’ll make them pay for what they did today.’
Joseph Larson knew full well that he would be humiliating Quince Larson by making the latter apologize, but this concerned the family’s life and death.
He had no other choice. Dignity was nothing when compared to the Larson family’s survival.
Of course, Finn Taylor and Yvette Larson understood the situation well. Although they looked like they had won, this came at a price—agreeing to their grandpa’s request of saving the Larson family.
As expected, Joseph Larson spoke up. “Yvette, look at how Quince has apologized. You must help the Larson family get through this trial.”
Yvette Larson had to resist the urge to punch someone when seeing how biased her grandpa was. Eventually, the power of familial ties forced her to agree to his demands. “I’ll do my best, Grandpa.”
Only then did the Old Master finally feel relieved.
Once Joseph Larson and Quince Larson left, Yvette Larson tried calling Hunter Sullivan. However, his phone was switched off.
Very obviously, he didn’t want to pick up her calls.
“It looks like we have to make a trip down to the Xander Corporation.” Yvette Larson was frustrated, but there was nothing she could do.
She headed out to Xander Corporation with her husband.
Along the way, Yvette Larson did her calculations. Eventually, she realized just how much debt the Larson family would be in without this project.
She couldn’t help but panic, but there was nothing she could do except curse Quince Larson in her heart. ‘This b*stard is really incompetent and turns everything to dust! If he were the slightest bit capable, the Larson family never would’ve landed up in this state.’
Seeing his wife’s sorrow expressed on her face, Finn Taylor comforted her. “It’s alright. It doesn’t matter even if the Larson family goes bankrupt. Your husband will help you rise up again, so what are those relatives anyway?”
Yvette Larson knew that her spouse was simply trying to comfort her. As such, she forced a smile out.
However, that was truly what Finn Taylor had in mind. In fact, he had already known about this matter a long time ago.
He was the one who had instructed Hunter Sullivan to terminate the project.
Finn Taylor had two goals: Firstly, to give the Larson family a warning so that they would realize that Yvette Larson was this huge project’s person-in-charge. Hence, they had better not set their sights on this, but affirm his wife’s position and status in the family instead.
Secondly, if the Larson family wanted to put Yvette Larson on the spot, he was prepared to let the Sullivan family end the contract for real.
He could crush such an unimportant family like the Larson family in seconds. Without his wife, the Larson family would fall overnight.
On the other hand, Yvette Larson would only be relieved of her burdens when without the Larson family. She would even rise up and improve her life and career.
The car drove all the way to Xander Corporation.
But just as Yvette Larson was about to go upstairs, she was stopped by the security officers. “Hello, Ms. Larson. Mr. Sullivan instructed us to stop anyone from the Larson family from going upstairs.”
Yvette Larson had already expected this to happen. At that moment, she couldn’t help but lash out at her cousin in her heart. ‘Quince Larson is so useless. Does he know how much we’ll benefit from working with the Sullivan family? It’s not just benefits; the Larson family might even get the chance to get out of San Francisco and move into the New York circle! That’s the capital and financial hub of the country! It’d be great if we can settle down there, but Quince Larson, you’ve ruined everything. You’re such a scumbag!’
Finn Taylor stayed with his wife as she waited at the Xander Corporation’s office for two hours. However, Hunter Sullivan never showed up.
Yvette Larson could only return home in disappointment.
As they arrived home and got out of the car, Finn Taylor spotted Diane Taylor running down the hill with tears streaming down her face.
Instinctively, Finn Taylor knew that his mother-in-law had bullied her. He rushed over and grabbed her hand.
“Mr. Taylor, please let go of me. I want to leave.”
Of course, he wasn’t going to do so. She would definitely run away once he did.
Just then, Yvette Larson rushed up too. Looking at the tear streaks on her face, she could also tell just how aggrieved she felt.
“Let her leave. Scram!” At that very moment, Linda James rushed out of the house, never forgetting to butt into the conversation.
“Mom, what’s wrong? Why are you making her leave?” Yvette Larson couldn’t help but feel that this was an incredulous situation. When she first saw Diane Taylor at the marché, she had gotten a good first impression of the latter. ‘Do you really have to do this, Mom?’
“Yvette, you’re really a fool. Don’t you know that this woman is Finn Taylor’s mistress?”
“Huh?” Yvette Larson sneered in complete disbelief. ‘If Finn Taylor cheated on me, then all men in the world would definitely cheat on their wives as well.’
“It’s true. Why won’t you believe me? Look, they’re even holding hands now!”
Finn Taylor was only holding onto Diane Taylor’s hand because he didn’t want her to leave. But in the end, his mother-in-law had turned it into evidence against him!
“Mr. Taylor, Ms. Larson, I know that you are kind. You saved me today and even gave me a job, but I care about my dignity. I won’t let someone ruin my reputation, so I can’t work here.” Using all her might, Diane Taylor managed to break free of Finn Taylor’s grip and sprinted down the hill.
Finn Taylor watched her departing figure and shouted, “Diane, have you forgotten about what happened today? If you don’t tell the truth and leave just like that, you’ll be looked upon as a criminal for the rest of your life.”
Diane Taylor stopped the moment she heard those words. She was considering the paths before her.
Eventually, she turned around and glared right at Linda James. “I’m not Mr. Taylor’s mistress. You framed Mr. Taylor and me only because you want Mr. Taylor to transfer ownership of the house over to your daughter.”
Because Diane Taylor had exposed her lies, Linda James was thrown into a frenzy.
“You even hit me and even wanted to pay me off so that I would admit to it. Then, you chased me away because I refused your offer. I’ll never admit to something I’ve never done. Mr. Taylor is my benefactor, so I won’t frame him just because of your dirty money!”
