Nathan Yeats was on the verge of bursting into tears.
He didn’t want to be blacklisted by Chloe Yeats. As such, he stood forward. “Ms. Yeats, I’m Nathan Yeats. I didn’t use your name to try to score business deals. My girlfriend was a fool and tried to boast about me in front of her relatives. I’m very sorry; we didn’t do it on purpose.”
Chloe Yeats raised her eyebrow and asked, “So this is why you were trying to puff yourselves up by using my name?”
Nathan Yeats knew all too well just how Chloe Yeats was as a person. If he didn’t give her a satisfactory answer today, he’d truly be done for.
“Hurry up and apologize to Ms.. Yeats,” Nathan Yeats roared at his girlfriend.
The latter looked up, only to see Finn Taylor, Yvette Larson, and Linda James looking at her with mockery in their eyes.
They were rejoicing at her misfortune!
Karine James—who had initially intended to apologize—threw a tantrum. “No, all I did was tell a white lie. I didn’t do anything against the law! Why should I have to apologize? Besides, you’re both Yeats. Who knows if you’re really related? Perhaps, you’re even her elder!”
It was truly a frightening thing when women lost all rationality.
It had been no big deal to begin with, but now that Karine James had said such a thing, there was no going back.
Nathan Yeats had truly offended Chloe Yeats.
A resounding slap landed on Karine James’s cheek.
Nathan Yeats could no longer hold it in. ‘I have to resolve this matter here and now. Otherwise, I would be sentenced to death.’
Nathan Yeats’s slap woke Karine James from her trance.
“Kneel down and apologize to Ms. Yeats.”
Karine James was reluctant, but she had no other choice. Anyway, she had already humiliated herself in front of Yvette Larson’s family whether or not she kneeled.
As such, she chose to compromise.
Karine James fell to the ground. Before she could say a word, Chloe Yeats strode off.
That was how disdainful she was! She didn’t even want to hear an apology.
If someone else had done that, Karine James probably would’ve thrown a tantrum. However, she didn’t dare to do so toward Chloe Yeats.
In the end, she kneeled for a good five minutes until her knees swelled up before she hobbled away.
She had wanted to show off to Yvette Larson during this shopping trip. However, not only had she not been able to do that, but she had even embarrassed herself completely.
Karine James was no longer in the mood for shopping. She picked up her 1,000-dollar bag and left.
Of course, Yvette Larson didn’t rub salt in her cousin’s wound and merely followed behind her.
Not long after, Finn Taylor caught up with them. In his hand was a large shopping bag.
“What’s that?” Yvette Larson asked out of curiosity.
“The bag I bought for you.”
Karine James was still fuming, and her blood boiled when she heard her cousin’s husband say that. “Finn Taylor, don’t tell me you bought that 50,000-dollar bag.”
“No, it only cost me 25,000 dollars.”
Karine James sneered. “I knew you wouldn’t be able to afford that 50,000-dollar bag. Yvette, stop pretending. Didn’t you say that you live in a mansion worth tens of millions? Why can’t you afford a 50,000-dollar bag?”
But Karine James had never stopped to consider that her bag had cost only 1,000 dollars. It was like night and day when compared to a 25,000-dollar bag.
“Take it out and show us what kind of bag it is.” Karine James snatched the bag over from Finn Taylor as she said so.
That stunned Yvette Larson. ‘How could there be such shameless people in this world? Why does she have to snatch someone else’s things?’
Karine James opened the shopping bag, and the sight stunned her.
The 25,000-dollar bag that Finn Taylor was talking about was actually that 50,000-dollar bag!
She was at a loss for words, and then she seemed to have thought of something. She laughed. “Finn Taylor, oh Finn Taylor. You’re such a fool. You must’ve bought a 25,000-dollar bag and switched it for this when the shop assistant wasn’t paying attention. Do you know just how powerful Chloe Yeats is? Aren’t you afraid of getting your limbs broken when she finds out about this?”
Finn Taylor was speechless. ‘What is she talking about?’
“I bought this. Didn’t Chloe Yeats say that she’d give me a free bag earlier? I didn’t want a free bag, so they gave me a 50% discount instead.”
Karine James had heard Chloe Yeats’s words too, but she still refused to believe him. “That’s impossible; Chloe Yeats was just joking. Do you really think she was being serious? I really wonder if you stole the money you’re spending today. Come, let’s bring this bag back. If Chloe Yeats finds out about it, she’ll push the blame to Nathan. Can you bear that responsibility when the time comes?”
Karine James was really a fool, but Nathan Yeats was sure of what she had just said. ‘She’s right. No good ending will come out of stealing from Chloe Yeats. Finn Taylor is just trying to drag us down with them.’
“No, take this back.” Even Nathan Yeats tried to drag Finn Taylor back.
Finn Taylor flung the couple away. “Do you really think that I stole this bag?”
Karine James sneered. “Isn’t that the truth?”
“Fine. I can go back and verify it with you, but what would you do if I really bought this bag?”
“You bought the bag? That’s impossible. If you really bought the bag, I’ll kowtow to everyone in your family and treat all of you with full respect. What do you think of that?”
Linda James was older than Henry James, and Yvette Larson was older than Karine James too. Logically speaking, it was only right for them to be respectful to their family. Yet, Karine James had always thought herself better than her cousin and had never treated the latter respectfully.
Now, she was willing to put this on the line.
“Fine.” Finn Taylor glared at Karine James. He had already gotten annoyed by the latter’s attitude toward his wife, so he naturally wasn’t going to let it go now that he had a chance.
With that, the two families strode back to the boutique.
Seeing that Chloe Yeats was no longer around, Karine James was emboldened. She slammed the counter and shouted, “What are you guys doing? Don’t you know that you’ve been robbed?”
‘We’ve been robbed?” The shop assistants were stunned.
This was no small matter. If it were true, they’d have to take full responsibility for it!
Karine James pointed at Finn Taylor and then at the bag in his hand. “Someone stole a 50,000-dollar bag from your store, but none of you are doing anything! What do you think Ms. Yeats will do to you?”
