Fiona did not understand why Nathan wanted to talk about working together with Emilia.
However, she couldn’t allow the possibility of Nathan and Emilia starting over again.
She stepped forward suddenly and said, “Emilia, my son’s and the daughter of the Bennett family’s wedding will be in ten days. Naturally, as the outcast of the Miller family, you were not qualified to attend. However, now that you claim to be the daughter of the Saunders family, I hope you can attend my son’s wedding with Jessica as the daughter of the Saunders family!”
Fiona’s attitude was arrogant as she leaned sideways. Although she was a little shorter than Emilia, she still wanted to act as if she was disdainful. Instead, it ended up making her look comical.
Although Fiona had admitted that Emilia was the daughter of the Saunders family inwardly, she still looked down on the latter who used to always be at someone’s beck and call.
When Nathan heard his mother make his engagement to Jessica public, and especially in front of Emilia, he felt a little uncomfortable.
“Wedding?” Emilia thought as her eyes darkened for a moment.
Three years ago, she did not have a decent wedding because Fiona did not like her.
She had tried her best to please Fiona for three years, but she had never gotten even a smile out of the latter.
Now, the members of the Miller family whom she had served for cheered everywhere about Nathan and Jessica’s marriage.
It was such a great difference.
to Nathalon was starting to blur, but she didn’t want to show her reddened eyes
“Mrs. Miller, I heard that you spent 40 million dollars today to buy the jade necklace that you liked. Is it going to be worn at the wedding or is it for your new daughter–in–law?” Emilia retorted directly.
Nathan’s attitude was very clear. Since Emilia had the porcelain bowl, she did not want it, nor did she care about Fiona’s words at all.
Fiona had not expected Emilia to argue with her about what happened at the auction today. She pointed at Emilia and was speechless for a moment.
“Mrs. Miller, you always like to treat things differently. It totals up to almost 300 million dollars in total today, right? The jewelry alone costs around 600 million.

dollars, and if the betrothal gifts are included, it likely costs hundreds of millions. of dollars to marry this daughter–in–law. Mrs. Miller, I hope that wouldn’t lead to your overdraft again!”
Emilia got to the point and got it over with quickly. It was a great torment to stand in front of Nathan for one more minute or even a second longer.
Before Emilia divorced Nathan, Fiona liked to buy things at will and often overdraft her bank card.
Since Nathan never gave her the extra money to pay off her card, Fiona only. treated Emilia better when Emilia gave Fiona her own bank card to pay overdraft.
This was the last thing Fiona wanted to be brought up.
After all, she had always thought that Emilia was a gold digger.
Fiona never knew that the money Emilia paid for her was not Nathan’s pocket money for her, but from Emilia’s personal funds.
“Emilia, you’ve taken it too far!”
Fiona wanted to struggle, but Emilia just glanced straight at Nathan.
“As for the wedding, I don’t think so! I don’t think this gentleman wishes for me to attend his wedding either. Let’s keep this strictly professional from now onward. See you tomorrow, Mr. Miller.”
The words “this gentleman” and “Mr. Miller,” both excessively distant ways to refer to him, caused Nathan’s emotions to drop visibly.
However, Emilia did not give him a second glance and left the auction hall directly.
She didn’t want to stay here for a moment.
Hayden and Simon followed closely behind her.
No one knew what Fiona thought when she saw Emilia leave directly, and her own son staring after Emilia’s retreating figure. The more she thought about it, the angrier Fiona became. She stamped her feet and began to blame Nathan. “Look at that woman you married! She’s become so disrespectful after the divorce. How dare she talk back like this? You didn’t even try to help me. Are you really my son?”
as no wonder that Fiona lost her manners when she saw Emilia. She couldn’t accept a woman who should have been humble to her looking down on herself with a lofty look.
Of course, it was just Fiona’s personal feelings on that matter.
“Don’t bother Emilia, Mother. I don’t want to emphasize it anymore.”
Nathan tightened his fingertips and clenched the crystal box with the porcelain. bowl. He said in a deep tone, “What you should care about now is my wedding with Jessica. Why waste energy on Emilia?”

“That may be so, but…”
“There’s something I have to deal with at the company. The driver is already. waiting outside the venue. You and Caroline should return first,” Nathan interrupted Fiona mercilessly.
He truly did not like the noisy atmosphere as it always gave him a headache unlike when he and Emilia were alone. She was always very quiet and gentle, and dealt with everything quietly…
He thought, “Why did I think of Emilia again?”
Nathan frowned slightly and strode away from the auction venue.
“Rebels, all of them! They’re all such rebels!”
When Fiona saw that Nathan didn’t take her seriously, she was so angry that she wanted to smash the jade necklace in her hand on the ground to vent her anger.
“Forget it, Mom. Don’t be angry with Nathan. The top priority now is the
engagement between Jessica and Nathan. Once they’re married, there’s nothing Emilia can do about it!”
Caroline hurried forward to hold Fiona’s arm and stretched out her hand to soothe her mother.
Although she also hated Emilia, Caroline was not the main character in what happened today, so it was easier for her to calm down.
“You’re right! Since I had said that the Bennett family and the Miller family would unite with the marriage, I must let your brother marry Jessica! I have to let Emilia know that she is just a thing that can be exchanged at any time!”
The more Fiona thought about it, the more determined she became.
She was going to make Emilia pay the price!
