President’s Sweet Wife novel Chapter 528

However, to Ally’s surprise, she heard loud discussions in the living room as soon as she entered the house.

“Dad, you see how late it is? I think she won’t come back tonight.”

“Yeah, Zack. With all due respect, you’re too tolerant towards Ally. You may think your tolerance is for her sake. But it's not good for her in the long run. If she keeps acting like this, how can she ever find a man to marry her?”

“Exactly! She doesn’t have any self-respect. She’ll bring shame to our whole family. I feel so humiliated!”

“Alas! Shall I send someone to look for her?”

Standing in the doorway and listening to the grossest insults, Ally was so irked that her lips began to tremble.

She thought indignantly, “How have I been acting like? Why would it affect my prospect of getting married?

“Did I do anything terrible? Why would I disgrace the whole family?”

Ally’s face paled with rage. Then, Sandra, the old maid, walked out of the kitchen and spotted Ally first. She exclaimed, “Miss Ally!”

The discussion in the living room instantly halted.

With her lips pursed, Ally headed into the living room and keenly eyed Lindsey, Angie, Hardy, Mary, and Zack, who was on the sofa.

They were stunned when they saw her come in. Yet, a moment later, they all sneered.

“Gee! Ally, you’re back! I thought you wouldn’t come home tonight!”

Lindsey was still the first one to speak. Her tone carried a heavy note of mockery.

Ally clenched her fists. Seeing that hideous face, she wished she could rush over and tear it up. But her rationality made her hold back that urge. With a cold laugh, she said, “Whether I come back or not is none of your business, is it?”

What she was implying was, “This is my home. I can come and go as I please. Butt out!”

Lindsey snorted and said, “Of course it’s none of my business. I was just standing in Zack’s shoes.”

Ally glanced at Zack.

Zack seemed a little cross. But unlike the others, the look in his eyes said he was not gratified by Ally’s suffering.

Ally sighed inwardly. She walked over, handed her purse to Sandra, and sat down on the sofa. Acting like she owned this place, she remarked, “Turns out that Mary is invisible in this family. Or my dad wouldn’t have needed an outsider to stand in his shoes.”

As soon as those words came out, Lindsey and Mary both appeared miffed.

Lindsey’s husband died a long time ago. She painstakingly raised Hardy all by herself over the years. Yet, she had no real ability to make money. Thus, other than spending her original assets, she did some sordid deals to make a living, which was sort of degrading.

Usually, no one would mention this in her presence, because it would offend her to expose her sorrowful past.

But Ally didn’t mind it now. Lindsey had tried to provoke her many times. Why should she spare her feelings anyway?

Zack snarled, “Ally, how dare you talk to Lindsey like that? She is an elder in the family!”

“I don’t have such an elder in my family who talks behind other people’s backs!”

“How dare you!”

“Enough!” Hardy suddenly drew to his full height. He glared at Ally with a livid face and a pair of cold eyes.

“Ally, you think we talked behind your back? But isn’t what we said true? Now you’ve done such a disgraceful thing, why do you fear others would talk about it?”


Feeling outraged, Ally laughed instead. She made to retort. Just then, Angie cast her eyes over her neck, which lit up at once. She approached Ally in one stride and ripped Ally’s collar open.

Instantly, the hickey on her neck was fully exposed.

“What are you doing?”

Annoyed and affronted, Ally shook Angie’s hand off. But it was too late. Everyone had seen the hickey on her neck.

Lindsey, Angie, and Hardy showed despise in their eyes. Even Mary, who revealed no emotion on her face, snorted inwardly.

Zack’s face turned completely livid!

Seeing their reaction, Ally knew they had misunderstood. Just as she wanted to explain, a large hand whacked her face!
