Zac didn't sleep for almost a night. He was anxious and worried. He was afraid that Essie would surrender to Lucy.
Early the next morning, he went back to the Rong Mansion and wanted to ask Mary what kind of feud was there between her and Lucy.
Hearing Zac's question, Mary's face turned pale. "You and Essie have already divorced. Why do you still interfere with the affairs of the Xu family? "
"Divorced. I don't want to be treated as an enemy of them either, and the hatred is all because of you." Said Zac in a mild tone as much as he could.
"Did Essie say something to you?"
"No, she didn't. her mother used to have a good impression on me, but her attitude towards me has completely changed since she knew that I am your son. I really want to know if there are any misunderstandings between you two." Zac poured her a cup of tea.
"I just met her for a few times. We are not familiar with each other and there won't be any misunderstanding. You have nothing to do with Essie now, and you don't need to pay attention to Lucy. Both of them are evil women. You'd better keep a distance from them in the future. " Said Mary sourly. Every time she thought of Lucy, her disgust for her grew deeper.
"Lucy is the dignified and rightful wife of Xu family, not the other woman who took the chance to go up. How could you call her a tramp?" A sharp light flashed in his eyes. From his mother's words, he knew that she was lying. Something must have happened between her and Lucy in that year.
Mary realized that she had made a slip of the tongue. She immediately explained, "I was just saying it. I don't really mean it."
Taking a sip of tea, Zac lowered his voice. "Did you help Elizabeth to get the position back then?"
The corners of Mary's mouth twitched uncontrollably. She tried her best to keep calm, but was carefully observed by the sharp eyes of Zac. He said, "it seems that I'm right. Mommy, after so many years, have you never felt guilty?"
There was a bit of blame in his tone. From her attitude towards both Essie, he could tell that she had never reflected on what she had done. If her mother felt regretful and apologized to Lucy, perhaps the resentment between them would be alleviated.
Mary was infuriated by her son's words. She snapped at him, "you speak for an outsider, are you still my son?"
"I only help the one who is right. But you helped the mistress to break up their happy family. Do you want me to admire you?" Zac was very disappointed at her. He didn't expect his mother to be such an unreasonable woman. Yesterday, when Lucy attacked her, he felt very uncomfortable. She was his mother and no one could insult her.
But now, seeing her attitude, he could understand how Lucy felt. How could a person who did something wrong without any regret be abominable and accepted by others?
Mary's face turned ghastly pale, but she could not tell the truth. She could only try her best to control her anger and play cool with her son. "You were too young to understand what happened that year. After all, Elizabeth is my best friend. I helped her just because I saw she was bullied by Lucy and I felt pity for Elizabeth, so I helped her. You don't know. Back then, Lucy was too aggressive and tried to kill Elizabeth and her children. If I didn't help them, how could they live till today? "
"How could it be? As far as I'm concerned, she is a pure and kind-hearted woman. How could she harm Elizabeth? " Zac couldn't believe it.
"You know one's face, not his heart.copy right hot novel pub
