Her Billionaire Husband

Chapter 26


“Oh, who do we have here? What’s a delivery girl doing here? The food is scattered all over the floor, and it smells pungent. “It’s Young Master Matthew and Miss Larson’s wedding today. Didn’t they already book the whole place? Why did someone order for a food delivery?”. “Who knows? Is she trying to sneak in?”. “Where’s the security? Throw out this person quickly. The wealthy people and celebrities who passed by Veronica gave her a look of disdain, criticizing and ridiculing her, and someone even called the security to throw her out. When two security guards came over, they saw the delivery vest she was wearing and noticed how out of place she seemed, so they grabbed her by her shirt. “Get out quickly. This place is booked. However, Veronica shook off the security guard’s hand. “Let go!”. Right now, she was furious. If she wasn’t pregnant, she wouldn’t feel a thing to see Tiffany and Matthew getting married because it had nothing to do with her. But now, she was already pregnant for more than two months, and Matthew had made a deal with her four days ago-if she gave birth to the child, he would help her adoptive father with his surgery and find out the truth behind the car accident. That was why she agreed to keep the baby. Who would have expected things to take a turn so quickly!. Veronica could almost imagine the scene after the child was born-she would be chased away, and her own child would be calling Tiffany Mom’. Mom?! Ha, how ironic! she thought. “Miss, I’m warning you now. Get out of here quickly, or else don’t blame me for being rude,” the security guard warned, pointing a finger at Veronica. The people who were coming from downstairs stopped to watch. Even though they were from wealthy families or were celebrities who were always in the spotlight, there were still many amongst them who liked to watch the fun. “You don’t have to chase me out, I can-”. “Roni, what are you doing here?”. While Veronica was speaking, Xavier squeezed out from the crowd and pulled her behind himself. Glancing at the security guard coldly, he said, “I brought her in with me. Is there a problem with that?”. Dressed in a white short-sleeved shirt and blue jeans with a necklace around his neck, Xavier was a guest of the banquet, but while his casual attire made him look bright, handsome, and energetic, he was just the same as Veronica-looking out of place next to all these people dressed in expensive clothes. “Young Master Xavier, she’s a delivery girl, ” the security guard explained, pointing at Veronica and the scattered food on the floor. Checking out the takeaway box on the floor, he crouched down and picked it up

“Roni, what’s wrong with you?” he said, pretending to be unhappy. “I a sked you to bring me some food on the way but you can’t even hold it well. It didn’t strike Veronica that Xavier would suddenly appear, and she was very grateful to him for helping her out. However, what h appened next was a round of sarcastic remarks from the bystanders. “My god, there must be something wrong wit h Young Master Xavier’s head. He’s actuall y friends with such an ugly delivery girl!” . “She’s so ugly that I almo st threw up. Looks like Xa vier is really desperate. “Indeed, he’s the infamous useless bum of Bloomstead. W hat an eye-opener today is. “You can’t bring her out on the streets. S uch an embarrassment. The crowd kept criticizing while pointing at them as the y sneered, mocked, and ridiculed them; their gazes fell on the two, as though exposing them under the spotlight. To that, Xavier merely laughed it off. Just as he said, he was ‘invincible’ and didn’t feel any inferiority nor embarrassment in the face of these sarcastic remarks. Meanwhile. Veronica took it in stride as well, with an all-knowing look despite the people making fun of her. More often than not, the both of them were very similar people. “What’ s goin g on?” . Suddenly, a husky and familiar voice echoed from behind the crowd. “Oh, Young Master Matth ew is here. “Congratulations, Young Master Matthew. Your e ngagement to Miss Larson is quite a surprise f or us, but you’re a good match for each other. “Congratulations, Young Master Matthe w and Miss Larson. “Goodness, you really live up to your name as the number one beauty of Bloo mstead, Miss Larson. You’re stunning!” . “Both of yo u are a per fect match. “Young Master Matthew, someone is making tro uble at your banquet. “Young Master Matthew, it’s been a while. The people greeted Matthew as they opened up a path for him, and when Veronica turned her head to look, she saw Tiffany, w ho was all dressed-up for the event and holding Matthew’s arm

Her chestnut brown hair was lightly curled with airy bangs in the front. Even though she had some light makeup on, her nat ural beauty was still very striking, especially since she was in a long, white dress which reached the floor. The hem of t he dress was decorated with sequins, and they gleamed like stars under the lights, making her seem like a beautiful fairy. Meanwhile, the man was wearing a royal-blue suit with a black shirt underneath and a neckt ie. His hair was slicked-back, showing off his deep-set features perfectly. With sharp brow s and bright eyes, he looked like a stunningly beautiful man who had walked out of a manga. When the handsome man and beautiful woman stood nex t to each other, the air around them turned extraor dinary, and everyone turned their heads toward them. In contrast, it made Veronica appear even ugl ier; it was a kind of ugliness which couldn’t be hidden even if she buried herself in mud. “Veronica, you’re here as well?” When Tiffany saw Veronica, her eyes sparkled, and she released her grip on Matthew’s arm. Pacing up to her, she then grabbed Veronica’s hand. “I thought you were still busy with deliveries, and I wanted to give you a call later. “How did you know her, Mi ss Larson?” someone from the crowd asked curiously. With the grace and demeanor of a demure socialite, Tiffany smiled warmly and said, “Let me introduce her. She’s a friend I made when I was experiencing life as a delivery girl, Veronica Murphy. ” Then, she gave Veronica a hug and continued, “Earl ier, I already arranged for a private nurse to take care of your mom and dad. So, just enjoy yourself here this afternoon. It was already impressive for a socialite who had always lived under the limelight to take the initiative to give an ugly and ordinary woman a hug. Moreover, she even initiated to hire a private nurse with her own mo ney to take care of the ugly woman’s parents. It had to be said that she had a very good personality, indeed. That was what everyone was th inking, except for Xavier and Veronica, who knew the truth. The anger within Veronica rushed to her head, but since she kn ew that the Larsons were a despicable bunch, and she had learn ed from the car accident, she could only bear with it for now. Locking her eyes on Matthew , she had dismal and fury i n her pretty, alluring eyes. At the same time, Matthew furrowed his dark brows and cast a look at Thomas next to him, as though he was asking with his eyes, Didn‘t I tell you to keep the news away from Veronica Murphy? . Almost unnoticeably, Thomas shook his head and thought, I‘ve already installed an interceptive software in Veronica Murphy‘s phone, but who would have thought that she would appear here! . “Congratulations! Of course I have to be here to watch the fun at your engagement party!” On the other hand, Veronica didn’t act impulsively because she was aware that she couldn’t handle the consequences if she did. More importantly, Xavier had said that he was the one who invited her in order to save her the embarrassment. If she made a scene now, not only wou ld she embarrass Xavier, a series of u npredictable events would also happen. Moreover, the reason I appeared here today was a ploy by the Larsons so that I‘d make a fool out of myself, she thought. Even if she didn’t understand the situation earlier, she already did now, and she would never let the Larsons get what they wanted!
