My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 100 Sell Her Again
Wendy and the others froze in surprise.The next moment, the car door opened.Ruben and Cacia got out of the driver and passenger’s seats respectfully.
Wendy had not seen the two for three years.Even so, Ruben did not seem to have aged, even a little.He was dressed in casual clothes that he looked decent and respectable.
Meanwhile, Cacia looked pleasing in her expensive dress.
As soon as she arrived, she went straight to Reese and held her in her arms and started crying exaggeratedly.
“Poor girl, why didn’t you tell me that you were being abused? If your evil mother-in-law hadn’t called me, I wouldn’t have known that you and Flynn have divorced.Cacia wiped her tears but did not stop crying.She even sobbed even more, as though all her pent-up worries came crashing to her all at once.
“It’s okay, though.Flynn was a heartless and horrible man.How could he divorce you when you’ve been with him for so many years?” she continued.
To her surprise, Reese suddenly pushed her away.This stunned Cacia.
“It’s me who divorced him!”
Cacia’s mouth fell open.She could not believe it!
“You…you wanted a divorce?” she asked incredulously.
“Yes!” Reese answered proudly.
Astonishment was written all over Cacia’s face.
In her opinion, although Flynn was old, greasy, and cunning, he was useful and had advantages.
Most importantly, he was rich! She believed that Reese was lucky to have married such a wealthy man.
‘Reese should be grateful! How dare she ask for a divorce?’ Cacia wondered.
With a look of disappointment on her face, she said, “Reese, as your mother, I have to say”
Reese interjected expressionlessly, “my mother is already dead!”
Cacia’s face froze for a second, and she asked, “Reese, what did you just say? What’s wrong with you?”
Reese only looked at her with disdain.
In the past, she thought that Cacia was sincere to her, but it turned out that she was just blinded by Cacia’s acting.
Only after meeting Wendy did Reese realize how wicked Cacia really was.
Cacia killed their mother! Afterwards, she tried to kill Wendy! Cacia only pretended to be innocent in front of Reese.
Fortunately, Reese finally realized that Cacia was just a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
If Wendy had not come back to tell the tale, Reese would have been kept in the dark for the rest of her life.
At that moment, a sneer appeared at the corners of Reese’s mouth, and she said, “How could you be so forgetful?”
In all honesty, Cacia did not look like an evil person.
She was a plump woman, and she seemed so kind- hearted whenever she smiled.
Upon hearing Reese’s words, she realized something, and a chill went down her spine.
“Reese, I…I don’t know what you’re talking about,” she stuttered.
“I’ll tell you what.Wendy, come here!”
Reese waved her hand, and Wendy strode over immediately.Seeing Wendy, Cacia’s eyes widened in horror.
“Wendy? Oh my god! You’re alive!” she exclaimed and cried exaggeratedly.
“Yes.Thank God, I’m alive,” Wendy replied in a sarcastic tone.
“This is amazing! Our family is whole again!”
‘Yeah, right.Just keep pretending!’ Wendy thought to herself with a snort.As Wendy gazed at Cacia’s hypocrisy and feigned ignorance, she almost applauded.However, Cacia did not seem surprised upon seeing Wendy.
The latter was aware of that.
After all, she knew that Eris told Cacia she was still alive.
Wendy had not forgotten how Cacia kicked her stomach several times before asking someone to throw her into the sea.
Surprisingly, Cacia did not panic upon seeing her alive.
Instead, she was calm, which baffled Wendy.
‘Is it because she was so shrewd, or that I have no evidence to expose her true color, that she has nothing to fear?’ Wendy wondered.
“Wendy, is that really you?” Ruben asked doubtfully.
Unlike Cacia, Ruben was genuinely shocked.
He saw Wendy by Reese’s side when they arrived just now.
However, he did not recognize her.
Three years had only passed, yet Wendy had changed a lot.
Ruben’s eyes widened as he gazed at his beautiful and elegant daughter.
Unable to contain his joy, he strode over and asked, “Are…are you really Wendy?”
“Yes, it’s me,” Wendy answered.
Ruben was so excited that his face turned red.
“How are you alive?”
“Why? Do you want me dead?” she retorted.
“No, not at all! I’m just happy to see you.But, how did that happen? Why didn’t you come to me when you’re alive after all? I thought you were already gone when after all these years.”
Wendy listened to her father’s excited voice, but for some reason, she did not seem happy.
Truth be told, she had already given up on her father.
Nobody knew him better than her, and she could say that he was equally awful as Cacia.
When Reese married Flynn, Wendy lived with her father, Cacia, and Eris.
Ruben never went out to work nor make money, like he was expected to do.
Instead, he would demand her for his own living expenses.
Seeing his enthusiasm, Wendy was sure he had ulterior motive.
Even though he was her father, she took two steps back and distanced herself from him.
“Now that you know I’m still alive, Reese and I will leave now,” she said coldly.
Hearing this, Cacia and Ruben exchanged a glance.
All of a sudden, Ruben stopped Wendy and Reese and said with a wide grin, “Wendy, Reese, you’re my precious daughters.Since Reese is now divorced and Wendy has returned, my daughters, come home with us.”
When he spoke, his eyes turned red, and he rubbed his eyes exaggeratedly as though forcing himself to cry.
“I didn’t expect our family would be reunited one day,” he said in a choked voice.
Wendy stood petrified in the spot.
Even Reese was at a loss too.
Their father was not an exemplary man.
Even so, he was their flesh and blood, and the only family member left.
“Reese, I heard that you divorced your husband, so I came to pick you up.It doesn’t matter why you did that.I’m sure he’ll regret losing you.Now, go home with me.I promise to find you a better man in the future.”
‘‘Find a better man.’’ His words echoed in Reese’s mind, and she shuddered.
She looked at Ruben with an inexplicable look on her face.
All of a sudden, Wendy broke the silence.
“Take her home and find her a man like what you did when she was young.Then, negotiate the price and sell her again.What a good deal!” she exclaimed with a sneer.
Reese was silent.
What Wendy had said was exactly what Reese was worried about.
“Wendy, what nonsense are you talking about?”
Ruben held Reese’s arm and added, “Reese, don’t listen to her.Your mother and I didn’t mean what happened in the past.Besides, I’m your father.How could I do such a thing to my own daughter? There, there.You must be sad after your divorce.Come home with us.”
To his surprise, Reese pushed him away.
“And then what? Sell me again once I recover?”
“Reese, what you said is not true! Why would I sell you? All I want is my daughter to marry a decent man!”
“Really? And when is that? When are you planning to ‘marry’ me again? Who is this decent man you have in mind? Another old rich man?”
“Stop it, Reese! I’m your father.How dare you talk to me like that? I did it for your own good.How could a woman not get married? You’re already 29 years old.You’re not young anymore.If you don’t find a husband soon, nobody will marry you once you turn 30!”
‘’I was right.’’ At the thought of this, her lips curled into a bitter smile.
‘’He wanted to sell me again while I’m still young.’’ With this in mind, she closed her eyes and pushed him with all her strength.
As a result, Ruben staggered a few steps back.
His face that was fawning a while ago suddenly turned dark and cold.
“Reese, how dare you!” he exclaimed while staring daggers at her.
“You can leave now, Dad.You’re aware of what kind of life I’ve lived all these years.Now that I’m finally free, I won’t jump into another hell.Thanks to you, I’ve decided not to marry ever again.You should give up now.”
Upon hearing that, Ruben narrowed his eyes and sneered.
“I’m afraid it’s not up to you.”
