A Cue for Love, chapter 424 Drag The Hamilton Family Down
When Zayden heard Scarlett’s pathetic cries, he could not stand it either.
“Grandpa, even though Scarlett has committed a mistake, don’t you think that throwing her out from the Hamilton residence is too harsh a punishment?” Zayden pleaded on behalf of Scarlett.
“Do you think that I want to do this?” Charles stumbled backward as a look of exasperation crossed his wrinkled face. “Zayden, the Hamilton family isn’t as powerful as you think. After your parents died, I’m the only one supporting the entire family. You know very clearly how incompetent you are. The Hamilton family has been going downhill since a few years ago. We’ve been hiding behind a false pretense of power.”
After a slight pause, he continued, “Before your birthday banquet, I’ve finally managed to reach a verbal agreement with Samuel for him to cooperate with the Hamilton family for the next ten years. Now that your sister has done something so outrageous, do you think that Samuel will still collaborate with the Hamilton family? I have no choice but to make a sacrifice. It is only by cutting off all ties with your sister and making the family’s stance clear that there’ll be a slight chance for Samuel to change his mind!”
Having a sudden revelation, Zayden finally understood the reason behind Charles’ harsh actions.
“What about Scarlett…”
“Considering Samuel’s methods, your sister will end up a hundred times worse than going to jail.” When Charles said that, he could not help but tear up. “I know that, but what can I do? She messed around with someone she shouldn’t have provoked and even crossed his bottom line! If the Hamilton family helps her, we’d all have to follow her to the grave.”
After knowing the powerful dynamics behind this, Zayden did not dare to mention anything no matter how much he wanted to help Scarlett.
After Scarlett got chased out of the Hamilton residence, she paced around the villa like a lost ghost, unwilling to leave.
However, since Charles had given the absolute command, no one dared to let her in.
It was extremely chilling outside.
Scarlett was overwhelmed with fear and regret.
She called Yara, but the phone rang a few times before Yara declined the call directly.
When Yara asked to join forces with her, she had acted so deferentially.
Now that things ended in failure, Yara immediately transformed into a traitor, not even willing to pick up her call.
“Yara! You were the one who dragged me into this mess!” A vicious glint flashed across Scarlett’s eyes as she spat through gritted teeth, “Now that you’ve made me utterly homeless, don’t you think that you escape scot-free.”
Meanwhile, Yara also received news that the plan had failed. Naturally, she could not accept Scarlett’s call at this critical juncture.
Initially, she wanted to join forces with Scarlett and eliminate Natalie secretly before Samuel returned. Never had she expected that he would come back earlier and that Natalie did not even enter that freezer!
Luckily, she managed to fend herself from Scarlett.
The reason why she asked to join forces was so that Scarlett could become her scapegoat if the truth was revealed.
Yara frowned as she fell into deep thought.
I’ve already reminded Lia to knock Natalie unconscious using the sedatives before throwing her into the freezer. Why did things take such a sudden turn?
Feeling puzzled, Yara could not help but call Lia.
“Do you have a death wish, Lia?” Furious, Yara screamed at the phone, “How did you carry out my instructions? Do you believe that I’ll reveal to everyone that Lionel is an orphan and expose your scandalous affair with him?”
Yara vented all of her anger on Lia, thinking that her threats would be effective again.
Surprisingly, Lia replied, “Go ahead and reveal my secret. However, I’ll also release the voice recording of you instructing me to sabotage Natalie.”
“You…” Yara’s heart skipped a beat. “What do you mean?”
“At the very most, people will just look down on me. However, I’ll still be the heiress of the Johnson family.” After a slight pause, Lia continued, “on the other hand, you are different. Your reputation will be utterly destroyed.”
