Chapter 403 Ask Your Biological Elder Sister to Help You
Gigi was livid, and her body trembled. Before she could say anything, Elisa said, “People of no value will be abandoned. If you have the time to argue with me, you better use it to ask your bankroller.”
Gigi could come out of retirement all because of the power of money. It was normal to be shut out when she had no value of use.
But to Gigi, this was a deadly blow. She immediately rushed down the stairs and ran out of the house. The servants wanted to stop her, but Sam called them back.
“Let her go.” The servants hung their heads in panic and didn’t say a word.
“She has to make Edgar change his mind so that all the years I’ve raised her won’t be in vain. If this drags on any longer, she will singlehandedly destroy her life.”
At that moment, in the Yorktown airport, a stylish and beautiful figure appeared at the arrival terminal. The bag she was holding was small and exquisite but cost millions. A pair of black shades covered her beautiful eyes.
“Ms. Summer, please get in.”
The people who picked her up were respectful and stood on both sides of the luxury vehicle.
Sherry Summer’s hand loosened, and she got into the car. When the car shut automatically, she took off her shades. Her voice sounded elegant and intelligent. “Where is Mr. Edbert?”
“He is waiting for you at home.”
“Let’s go quickly. I can’t wait.”
She wanted to meet a certain person and do a certain thing.
Gigi went to meet Mr. Boyle but was refused at the door, so she rushed to Edbert’s villa. She got through the doors, but Edbert didn’t mention a word of this.
“Your body is weak, and you need rest. It’s good to use this time to rest properly.”
“But didn’t you give me two months? How do I have the time to rest?” Gigi gazed at him fiercely. “Or do you mean to say that you think I have no more value of use?”
Could abandoned good-for-nothings only wait to die?
No. She refused to accept it.
Edbert looked up and saw animosity flashing in Gigi’s eyes. It was directed at him, Sam, and even her biological sister, Jean.
This was what Edbert wanted.
His lower lip curved meaningfully. “I’m not going to hide it from you. I’ve chosen a new target for Edgar. She’s about to arrive.”
Gigi was surprised. “Are you kidding me? You’ve fallen out with Edgar. He knows that you’re the one operating behind the scenes. He will never accept someone you introduce to him.”
Edbert was playing with a teacup in his hands and seemed to click his tongue in astonishment.
“The fact that you can think about this is beyond what I expected.”
Half an hour later, Gigi watched as Sherry walked in. Every move she made was elegant and proper. She was truly a daughter from a noble family. Gigi and Jean might not even be able to beat her.
And Sherry looked more pleasant the more people looked at her.
Even when Sherry knew who Gigi was, she smiled and extended her hand to Gigi. “Thanks for your trouble in taking care of Edgar. In the future, I hope that you can completely disappear from his side.”
She openly and brazenly asserted her dominance.
“Who do you think you are? You don’t have the right to say this to me!” Gigi was flustered and exasperated. She said ferociously, “Edbert, I will tell Edgar all about you blackmailing me and everything you ordered me to do. At worst, I’ll take you down with me.”
Edbert stood up indifferently. “I’ll leave this to you.”
“Don’t worry, Mr. Edbert.” Sherry smiled. Her smile was incredibly bright and beautiful, and she looked very pretty.
The next moment, she walked in Gigi’s direction.
She reached out her fair hand and lifted Gigi’s fallen hair. “I saw the news about you on the flight. Were you shut out by the company? It must be Edgar’s doing. So, you shouldn’t come here. You should go to Eyer Residence.”
“Ask your biological elder sister to help you.”
She knew what had happened here like the back of her hand!
Gigi looked at the beautiful face before her and felt a chill run down her spine. This woman was a knife that Edbert had hidden, and she had been waiting in the wings.
Sherry’s fingers slowly slid down.
She suddenly clutched Gigi’s neck.
Her sharp fingernails dug into the flesh. It hurt so much that there was blood.
“I’m not a very patient person. I can help you think of ways if you are obedient and listen to me, but if you look at me like that again, I will make you disappear completely.”
Sherry’s smile deepened. “Vanish in that sense. It will hurt a lot.”
Her hand loosened, and Gigi trembled as she hid behind. Her eyes were filled with fear.
Sherry looked at her fingernails and shook her head discontentedly. “How did Mr. Edbert choose someone as dumb as you? You’ve wasted so much time.”
Gigi’s hand trembled as she covered her neck. She didn’t dare to look up.
She only ran out in a panic when Sherry took off her coat and went upstairs.
“If you tell anybody about this, you will die.”
Gigi’s legs were weak when she walked out of the villa. She walked aimlessly along the street alone until a passerby recognized her.
“Are you Gigi Reece?”
She covered her face and hailed a cab in a panic.
“Where to, miss?” The driver turned to ask.
Gigi told him the address of Eyer Residence in a cagey manner.
Jean had just settled the specifics with a lawyer. She wanted to use legal means to defend herself. She had to protect her reputation in the design industry. Otherwise, she had no way to stay in this industry.
A series of panicked knocks interrupted her thoughts.
“Who is it?”
She looked at the figure standing at the door, and her brows wrinkled tightly.
Through the surveillance camera, she asked, “Why are you here?”
Gigi felt guilty and kept crying. “Save me. I really… I have nowhere else to go!”
Jean turned off the surveillance screen.
“Jean, you can’t treat me like this. The whole world can ignore me but not you. If you were the one who had been taken away back then, you would be the one going through all the pain that I’m feeling now.”
Gigi knocked on the door and cried out loud incessantly.
The more she shouted, the less energy she had. Her voice was becoming hoarse.
After a long time, the door in front of her opened.
Jean furrowed her brows and looked at Gigi. Her sorry state was on par with roadside beggars. “I’m not letting you in because I’m softhearted. It’s so that you won’t disturb the peace of Eyer Residence.”
Gigi bit the corners of her lips and didn’t say anything.
“Weren’t you crying out loud just now? Have you turned mute?”
Gigi looked down and suddenly sneered.
“I ended up here today because of my own doing, but don’t be too happy. It will be your turn sooner or later.”
She looked up, and the red bloodstains on her neck were a ghastly sight.
