"Alice and her little sister used to have a happy family, but you had to ruin that. You tore apart their families, wrecked their lives, and separated them from each other! You're so full of mercy and morality right now. Tell me, when you decided to insinuate yourself into someone else's marriage and drive the former wife and her children away, did you ever think of how sad the children would be if they couldn't see their father or mother? Did you think of how the pain of separating a mother from her child is worse than actually killing her? How many years have it been since the last time Alice saw her mother and sister? And how many years has it been since the last time Alice's sister saw her and her father? Who made it all happen? It's you! You are a disgusting homewrecker!"
She stared hard at Elizabeth's rapidly reddening face, paused for a while to catch her breath, and continued, "I don't know if you're addicted to being a mistress, but now you want to consign your daughter to the same fate. I'm sorry, but I'm not a doormat sort of a wife who would allow others to destroy her marriage and family."
If possible, Zac would have given his wife 999 thumbs up. He really wanted to stand up and applaud, so proud he was of his wife.
Seeing how Essie's words hit a sore spot and how her daughter-in-law was sorely declawed, Mrs. Vicki had to save face by saying, "Zac and Valery have known each other since they were children. If you hadn't come between them, they would have been already married. You, my dear, are the homewrecker in this scenario."
With a slight smile on her lips, Essie said, "Mrs. Vicki, my husband has always treated Valery like a sister. He was never in love with her. Also, you seem to have forgotten... your beloved granddaughter sought to entrap my husband into marriage by getting pregnant with his baby. I don't think I need to explain that to you in detail. Moreover, everyone is free until they marry. There's no 'first-come, first-served' basis, and everyone is free to choose whom they want to spend the rest of their life with, and everyone is free to pursue love. Marriage is different, as it is protected by law and morals. Husband and wife belong to each other, and no one is allowed to steal!"
Her eyes fell on the Buddhist prayer beads hanging from Mrs. Vicki's neck. "Madame, you seem to believe in Buddhism. There are a lot of news about you on the Internet. Do you know that it considered a grave sin in Buddhism to force two people into marriage? You have done it once before, and now you plan to do it again. Once the Buddha find out what you did and what you intend to do, he will be angry and bar you from entering Nirvana."
Mrs. Vicki's face turned deathly pale, and her hands started shaking with fury. Seeing this, Mary hastily said, "Essie, Mrs. Vicki is your elder. Don't be rude."
"Yes." Essie took a step back and turned to Vicki. "I'm sorry, Mrs. Vicki. I was too excited just now and might have caused offense. I apologize."
Still trembling, Mrs. Vicki took a sip of tea to calm herself down, and then spoke in a heavy voice, "That woman was unable to bear a son, so I had to make her leave. If we did not have a boy in the next generation, then how could I face the ancestors of the family when I die?"
Essie narrowed her eyes in concentration. Finally, they had started to get to the crux of the matter. She said, "Mrs. Vicki, you're right. Having a daughter is indeed useless. A daughter only drains money, and then she has to marry sooner or later." Then, her tone suddenly changed. "What if Valery is also carrying a daughter?"
"That's impossible. We have the results of the B-ultrasound examination. It's a son," Elizabeth replied quickly.
Essie interjected, "At present, B-ultrasound imaging offers only 70% accuracy, which means that there's a 30% chance that Valery is carrying a baby girl.copy right hot novel pub
