Turning Of The Tide (Natalie and Trevon) novel Chapter 27

Chapter 27 

At the Foster’s house. 

Emily had been fidgeting before the mirror, always finding herself dissatisfied with every single dress. 

Filled with anger, she threw all the clothes she was holding onto the bed. 

Elena walked in and witnessed the scene, asking her daughter with concern, “What’s wrong? Who has upset you?” 

It was Monday, and Elena’s son, Tucker, had gone to school, leaving only the maid, Elena herself, and Emily at home. Harry had also left for work early in the morning. 

Ever since Tucker was a child, he had been independent, insisting on attending boarding school since elementary years and only returning home once a week. 

Emily sat by the window with a discontented expression and said, “Mom, just look at those things. I don’t have any decent clothes. These are all last year’s styles. And to top it off, Dad has halved my allowance this month, so I can’t even afford to buy something nice.” 

Harry had cut back on the family’s expenses after his previous failure to get Barron’s inheritance. This action raised suspicions in Elena’s mind, prompting her to inquire through a confidential source within the company, only to know that a project invested by Harry failed, resulting in a loss of more than 16 million dollars and leaving the shareholders. displeased. 

No wonder he had been busy at work all day from morning to evening. and even cut down expenses recently. As for the possibility of Harry cheating on her, Elena was never worried since she had her own methods. to deal with that. 

Observing the pile of clothes on her daughter’s bed, folded into a small mountain, Elena expressed her slight dissatisfaction, “Your father’s company has recently encountered some difficulties. We need to tighten our belts for a while. Just be a good girl, and don’t spend too much money. I can give you 10 thousand dollars to buy a dress you like.” 

After the last attempt to make a car accident failed, she lost one million dollars, so she now had little money at her disposal. Besides, she also needed to leave some money with her in case something unexpected 

Chapter 27 


However, Emily thought 10 thousand dollars was too little. After all, just a limited-edition dress would cost around 200 to 300 thousand dollars. She also wanted an entire outfit and a handbag, which would easily cost 100 thousand dollars. Moreover, she was going to visit the Wilson family 

this time. 

Her appearance was crucial, and her dress would determine whether she could earn the chance to marry into the Wilson family. 

“Mom, this is simply not enough. Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to the Wilson family. If I go there, adorned in a dress only worth 10 thousand dollars. How will they even look at me?” 

Elena had noticed that Emily had been returning home late lately with a radiant smile. She suspected that Emily must have been dating someone, but little did she know it was someone from the Wilson family. It would be wonderful if that man were Trevon. 

“Is it Mr. Wilson, the famous Trevon Wilson in Athana?” Elena asked, her excitement growing. 

“No, it’s Max Wilson, the son of Ted Wilson, who is Theo Wilson’s second son.” Emily also had her sights set on Trevon, but the predicament was that she couldn’t even meet him in person. It made it challenging to captivate his attention. 

Therefore, Emily chose Max to be her target. After all, Max was also a part of the Wilson family. If she could successfully marry him, she would also be a member of the Wilson family. 

However, Elena didn’t think so. Max was renowned as a playboy within high society in Athana, changing companions as often as one changes clothes. Despite his professional achievements, those in high society knew that he just rode on the coattails of his father and grandfather. He was essentially useless without them. 

In contrast, Trevon had climbed the ladder of success through his own merits. In Athana, except for those who were very close to him, almost everyone would respectfully address him as Mr. Wilson. 

If Emily was indeed with Max, Elena feared that Max would soon. abandon her daughter. 

Elena furrowed her brows, deeply concerned. “Emily, can you handle 

Chapter 27 

someone like Max? His reputation doesn’t hold a candle to Mr. Wilson’s.” 

It was said that Trevon never involved himself with women and always remained chaste. Even when talking about the contract at social gatherings, he abstained from indulging in drinks, focusing solely on his work. People would try to tempt him with attractive companions, but he didn’t even spare them a glance. 

Elena had met many people in her life, and she knew that for such a man like Trevon, once he fell in love with a woman, he would love that woman forever. 

He was a faithful lover by nature! 

Elena had her own way of stopping Harry from cheating on her. Otherwise, Harry’s unfaithful nature might have led him to take a mistress long ago. 

Hearing what Elena said, Emily was unsatisfied and pouted. “Mom, you don’t understand. Mr. Wilson is cold and resolute. He always settles. matters with an iron hand. Even if I had the chance to meet him. I wouldn’t dare approach him. The rumors about him in Athana are all bone-chilling.” Emily didn’t want to risk her life. 

Elena shared the same thought and began to speak cautiously, “Emily, Max is a good choice for you too, but you need to capture his heart and marry him. Did you have sex with him?” 

Emily was taken aback by her mother’s direct and blunt question, feeling a bit embarrassed. “No,” she admitted. She was no longer a virgin since. she had several relationships with wealthy men before. 

Elena advised, “Don’t let him take advantage easily. Hold on to him. In a few days, I can take you abroad to have your hymen repaired.” 

Emily wondered how her mother had discovered her secret… 

Elena looked at her surprised daughter and gently patted her hand. “You’re my daughter. There’s nothing a mother doesn’t know about her daughter.” 

Emily’s face lit up with excitement. She hadn’t slept with Max because she was afraid of being discovered by Max that she was not a virgin. “Mom, will it be found out by someone? What if Max finds out?” 

Elena replied with certainty in her eyes, “Don’t worry. I know someone who can keep it a secret. He won’t breathe a word to anyone even if he’s

threatened with death.” 

Now Emily felt more confident, knowing what she had to do next was to capture Max’s heart adequately. 

Finally, to make Emily marry into the Wilson family, Elena handed her daughter 160 thousand dollars. 

Around eight o’clock in the evening, Natalie was about to change into her work clothes when her phone rang in her pocket. After seeing an unfamiliar number, she didn’t answer the phone. 

When the phone rang again, she picked it up, fearing it might be a patient seeking medical advice. 

A deep, magnetic voice came from the other end. “Are you at work?” 

Natalie was confused when she realized it was Trevon’s cold voice, wondering why he suddenly called her. 

Out of courtesy, she answered honestly, “Yes, I’m getting ready for work. What’s the matter?” 

“Well, there’s a dinner at the Wilson’s old residence tomorrow, and Grandpa wants you to attend.” 

There would be a weekly gathering for all the Wilson family members. hosted at the Wilson’s old residence, a tradition that had been upheld for generations. 

And the reason was to foster a sense of closeness between family 

members. The children had grown up and were occupied with their own. careers, and they needed to come home more often to reconnect so that they wouldn’t become more and more estranged due to the busyness of life. 

This puzzled Natalie even more. It had been more than three weeks since she and Trevon got married, and she had never been requested to have dinner with the Wilson family before. 

“Does it get hosted every 20 days now? 

“Does bringing up the topic of divorce have something to do with it?” she thought. 

Natalie contemplated finding an excuse to refuse. 

Before she could voice her thoughts, Trevon interrupted her on the other

end of the phone, saying, “I know you’re off tomorrow. I’ve promised Grandpa that I’ll take you back.” 

Natalie remained silent, internally thinking, “Then what was the point of calling me? Just to tell me about that?” 

Her response carried a tone of displeasure as she replied, “Got it.” 

Jim looked at Trevon, who hung up the phone with a smirk.
