"Aunt didn't lie, but Irene lied, and you cleverly saved her," Zac said in a low voice.
"You are so smart and have a strong sense of logic. Why didn't you become a police?" Essie sneered.
Holding the armrest of the chair with both hands, Zac leaned towards her slightly. The strong aura emitted from his body forced the surrounding pressure to a negative value.
"Stupid woman, how can your little tricks escape my eyes?"
"So what? Are you going to tell your mommy about us?" Since he had exposed her lie, Essie decided to play tricks on him.
"I'm not that bored." Zac stood up and sat back on the sofa. Essie also stood up and sat down beside him. Since he had found out, she had to try her best to explain and clarify, in case he regarded aunt as a mistress.
"In fact, it's very simple. In Provence, didn't daddy and aunt have an unpleasant conflict? Maybe daddy sent the watch to aunt just to apologize. He was worried that aunt wouldn't accept it, so he sent it to her through Irene. He wanted to tell her the truth after she wore it. Since she had worn it, she wouldn't return it. This is a roundabout apology gift," Essie analyzed slowly.
Shaking his head, Zac laughed, "You are good at guessing such a messy thing."
Crossing her arms over her chest, Essie squinted at him in a coquettish manner and said, "Don't I make sense?"
"Not bad," Zac nodded slightly and said affirmatively.
Essie breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that he had believed her. After all, in his opinion, there was a conflict between Albert and Mrs. Rose, so it was normal to give a gift to ease the conflict.
While she was thinking, Zac's voice came again, "In fact, daddy doesn't have to make it so complicated. If he tells mommy directly, she won't misunderstand him."
"No way!" Essie denied what he said. "Your father is a smart man, and your mother is a woman of such character. Hasn't he seen through her until now? At that time, my mother was just close to your father. She was so jealous and hateful that she tried every means to retaliate against her, causing the divorce of her marriage and away from her daughter. Do you think she would be so generous not to suspect her sister now? "
Zac was silent.
Essie continued. "Even if daddy really has an affair, you have nothing to blame. Let's put aside your perspective as a son and take this matter as a man's position. Ask yourself, are you willing to live and sleep with such a woman? " Her words were quite sharp and hit the nail on the head.
Zac stood up and walked to the bar counter. He poured a glass of whiskey and a few pieces of ice and took a sip. "Let nature take its course. We don't need to get involved in the matter of daddy and mommy."
"I didn't mean to interfere. If it was someone else, I wouldn't care at all. I just want to protect aunt. She has been hurt once. I don't want her to suffer another time," Essie said clearly and forcefully.
In Mary's room, Leila stood on the balcony, gazing at the dusk thoughtfully. Mary was lying on the chair with a facial mask. She needed to take good care of herself, in case that Albert thought she was old.
"Mommy, the more I think about what happened in the tea house today, the more suspicious I feel." Leila touched her chin.
"What's wrong?" Mary said casually.
"How could it be possible for Essie to buy a fake watch to wear on her wrist? She is a fashion designer. People in this kind of profession disdain fakes the most," Leila analyzed.
"You're wrong. It's not the first time that she wears a fake. She used to wear a fake Purple Love and wear it on her finger all day long to deceive the true." Mary sneered with contempt. It was obvious that this woman had stayed in the slum for a long time and had tainted herself with the bad habits of the ordinary citizens.
