Chapter 71: Two Guardians by Her Sides??
Elizabeth frowned, curious about why Martina was doing this and what it could achieve. Or was Martina trying to set up a trap for Elizabeth?
However, upon careful consideration, Elizabeth felt that such a possibility was unlikely. After all, she was Benjamin’s mother. If Martina dared to do something to her, she might
just end up getting beaten!
With this thought in mind, Elizabeth coldly chuckled and stood up, saying, “I want to see how capable you are. I’ve run out of cash prepared, so you’re on your own.”
After speaking. Elizabeth had the butler bring another chair for herself and sat beside, seemingly intending to watch it all unfold.
Martina didn’t hold back either and sat down without a word. As for the cash, there was no need to worry because Leslie had already prepared them.
Elizabeth watched helplessly as Martina accepted some cash handed over by Leslie,
most likely obtained from the study.
It was quite evident whose money she took, wasn’t it?
Elizabeth became somewhat angry, but she restrained herself from exposing anything in
front of others.
Her nails, however, dug harshly into her flesh. Martina was really interesting and shameless, using her son’s money to play Mahjong. Unfortunately, Elizabeth couldn’t say anything and could only let her anger show on her face.
The three other madams looked at Martina with a perplexed expression..
“Oh my, Elizabeth, who is this beautiful young lady? I’ve never heard of her. When did. you have a daughter?” one of the madams asked.
Elizabeth’s face stiffened. She had been so caught up in her quarrel with Martina that she had forgotten about this crucial point.
Now, facing everyone’s inquiries, she couldn’t provide too much explanation. Was she supposed to say that this was her own daughter? That was impossible, and no one would. believe it. It wasn’t realistic for her to admit that this was her son’s fiancée either, because
she didn’t want to at all.
How should she introduce Martina?
Just as Elizabeth was still in a dilemma, Leslie took the initiative to continue, “Ladies, this is Miss Martinez. She is our boss’s girlfriend and future fiancée.”
As for why he said “future fiancée, it was because they hadn’t officially gotten engaged yet. If he made too firm of a statement now, it might be difficult to resolve if anything. unexpected happened in the future.
Moreover, Leslie didn’t dare to assert too much. The fact that he could boldly say this. in front of so many people already proved his capability.
“So this is the Miss Martinez we’ve been wanting to meet. Elizabeth, you really aren’t being fair.”The madams looked at each other, clearly in disbelief. “Just now, you said Miss. Martinez wasn’t at home. Could it be that you didn’t even want to let us meet your precious daughter-in-law?”
If those people weren’t present, Elizabeth would definitely not hide her inner disgust and aversion, and she wouldn’t have any good attitude at all.
But unfortunately, now she was in front of so many outsiders. Even if she was
displeased in her heart, she had to restrain her emotions.
With a fake smile, she responded, “Of course, as I’ve said, she is my precious daughter-
in-law. How can I easily let you all see her?”
“But since Martina has taken the initiative to come downstairs, I can’t say much. You
should hurry up and play Mahjong.”
The three madams burst into giggles, but Martina’s face showed no hint of a smile.
Because she felt that these words didn’t sound like something Elizabeth would say. And
she truly didn’t have such thoughts. Hearing such a title now only made her feel burdened.
But unfortunately, there was no way around it. Even if Martina argued back, it wouldn’t
‘make a difference. Could she really change everything?
Besides, these people didn’t want to hear all these irrelevant things. They were just purely gossiping, and it was better to just keep silence.
After all, her only purpose now was to play Mahjong and lose some money along the
Little did she know, Benjamin had just returned. Upon hearing Leslie’s introduction just now outside, a faint smile seemed to appear on his face. Especially when he heard others. praising Martina, his emotions seemed to lighten up.
It seemed that the possibility of Leslie getting a raise was not entirely impossible. The Mahjong game had just started its first round. Martina wasn’t bad at playing but her goal was just to lose money.
So right from the beginning, she intentionally gave others winning tiles, calling and declaring kongs, even letting others win by self-draw. All of this happened in less than a
The three madams burst into laughter, seemingly mocking her with some implied sarcasm. “Elizabeth, it seems your daughter-in-law isn’t that great in this aspect. Although she’s gorgeous, her skills in playing Mahjong don’t match her looks.”
Elizabeth maintained her fake smile and replied, “Well well, you all really care about my family. Continue playing, winning or losing doesn’t matter. It’s just a game.”
Apart from that, Elizabeth didn’t know what else she could say. Should she admit that she couldn’t afford to lose and that she was getting frustrated? After all, she was living the best life among all these people. If she said that, how could she hold her head up high int
Just as the second round was about to begin, Benjamin silently approached behind
Martina from the entrance.
Martina looked up and was startled by the appearance of a man behind her. Her body
couldn’t help but tremble slightly, but she quickly noticed that it was Benjamin.
She felt a little surprised in her heart. Normally, if Benjamin went to handle work, he would be busy for a long time. It was unexpected that he came back so soon today. It was
a bit unusual.
However, ever since Martina left for a month, Benjamin had already become somewhat abnormal. Even if he came back this early, it seemed acceptable.
Without waiting for Benjamin to say anything, Leslie took the initiative to bring another
chair and placed it next to Martina.
The current situation was like this: there were six people sitting at the Mahjong table,
and three of them were on one side.
Martina sat in the center and was responsible for discarding tiles, while on the left and right sides, it was as if she had her guardians. One was her future mother-in-law, and the
other was her future fiancé.
