Linda James said, “Finn, you must love Yvette, right?”
‘What’s she up to now?’ Finn Taylor frowned. “What are you trying to say?”
“Since you still love Yvette, I guess you won’t mind me spreading the reason for your divorce, right? Yvette’s reputation is important after all.”
Finn Taylor chuckled. ‘Linda James is still Linda James. Although she says that it’s for the sake of her daughter’s reputation, it is actually for her own sake. She’s afraid that others will criticize her for kicking her son-in-law away after he slaved off in their family for three years.’
However, Finn Taylor had already accounted for that. Otherwise, he would never hook up with Willow Stone to force his wife to get a divorce from him. “As you wish.”
“You still have a little conscience after all.” Linda James then left with the divorce papers and the bank card, a smile plastered on her face. However, she didn’t tell her daughter about the matter right away. She knew that it would only provoke the latter even further.
She would have to find an opportune moment to bring it up. Only then would she succeed.
As such, Linda James called her friends to arrange for a meet-up. She naturally knew the kind of people her friends were—gossipy and jealous women.
As long as she told them about her daughter and son-in-law getting divorced because the latter had an affair, she was sure that news would soon get out. Then, South-East Asia’s Taylor family would also know that they had nothing to do with Finn Taylor.
But the Taylor siblings had never once thought of dealing with the Larson family! From the very beginning, they had only targeted Finn Taylor. Besides, the only family they wanted broken was the Taylor family.
It was only because of Linda James’s pride that she thought that the Larson family was way above Finn Taylor.
Linda James’s friends had arrived at the meeting point way ahead of time, but the one who had called for the meeting hadn’t arrived yet.
They glanced at their watches. “What is Linda James up to? Why isn’t she here yet?”
It took another half an hour before Linda James finally appeared.
“What’s wrong with you? What took you so long?”
Linda James was still panting. “Don’t talk about it. I’m so angry right now!”
Everyone’s curiosity was piqued. ‘What’s going on?”
“Is something wrong?”
“Sigh. Alright, I’ll be honest with you guys. My daughter is getting a divorce.”
Her best friends jolted up from their seats. “What? Yvette is divorcing Finn Taylor?”
Although they often tried to one-up each other, Yvette Larson treated them well, and they doted on her. Hence, everyone was emotional upon hearing the news.
“Yes, she’s getting a divorce from Finn Taylor.”
“Yes, weren’t they very loving?”
“Yes, I heard that they just went on a wedding photoshoot last month. Why are they suddenly getting divorced?”
“Your family might not have been doing well before, but you run a company and even live in Number One Pacific Heights. Why are they suddenly getting divorced?”
Nobody understood why the couple would separate.
“What’s new? Finn Taylor has found himself a mistress.”
“A mistress?” Her best friends got even more agitated.
“That’s impossible. Finn Taylor found a mistress?”
“That can’t be. Hasn’t he always been very obedient? He always does whatever you ask without any complaints. Why would he suddenly get himself a mistress?”
“Right, who is it?”
Linda James shook her head. “I don’t know either, but Yvette caught them together.”
‘Yvette Larson caught her husband cheating on her!’ The group of friends was left speechless. ‘He was caught in the act! How can he possibly defend himself?’
After their gathering ended, the friends were no different from free loudspeakers. Very quickly, the entire city learned of the matter.
Yvette Larson had planned to meet up with her best friend at a cafe because she was in a bad mood and needed the other’s company.
Just then, a young girl sitting at the table next to Yvette Larson glanced at her phone, then at Yvette Larson, and then at her phone again. She turned to her friends and asked, “Hey, isn’t that Yvette Larson?”
They took out their phones and glanced over before looking back at their phones. “Yes, it’s really her. I heard that she’s getting divorced.”
“What a tough life she has. She got married to a matrilocal son-in-law, and he cheated on her!”
The group of friends didn’t even try to lower their voices, and the pair of best friends heard everything.
Clarine Landon still had no idea about the matter, so she shot up from her seat. “What nonsense are you spouting? Who told you that Yvette is getting divorced?”
Her loud voice scared the group, but they had only spoken the truth.
“She’s already getting a divorce. Why can’t we talk about it?”
“Nonsense! Yvette and Finn have such a great relationship. How dare you smear their names like that?”
“Smear their names? I’m not smearing their names. Why don’t you go take a look at the news if you don’t believe me? Everyone knows that Finn Taylor has a mistress and is getting divorced from Yvette Larson.”
Clarine Landon turned to her best friend in disbelief. “Yvette, tell them that it’s fake.”
Yvette Larson was still standing there in a daze. ‘A mistress.’
Each word was like a stab to her heart.
Yvette Larson remained silent, not rebutting them.
This puzzled her friend, who couldn’t bear to see the other being blindly accused. Clarine quickly paid for their meal before ushering her best friend out.
However, their departure only proved to others that what they had said was indeed the truth.
After leaving the cafe, the two best friends headed to a nearby park.
Having taken their seats, Yvette Larson finally broke the silence. “Clarine, what they said wasn’t exactly wrong.”
Her best friend was slightly stunned. “Are you serious? Are you guys really getting divorced?”
“No, no. We haven’t signed the papers, but I did catch Finn in the act.”
“You caught him red-handed? With who?” Clarine Landon was still in disbelief.
When Yvette Larson said that, even Clarine Landon fell into silence.
