Meanwhile, in the mansion on the outskirts, Aubree, too, saw the discussion on the internet. Her hand that held the phone trembled with anger when she saw the statement made by Farwell Group.
Aubree could tell Lucian was basically informing the public of his relationship with Roxanne. In fact, he was close to revealing their marriage certificate. At the same time, he was also responding to Roxanne and Jack’s scandal, announcing to the world that Roxanne was his.
Lucian never announced our engagement in the past, no matter how subservient I behaved. And now, that b*tch made him do it so easily? And what’s with those two b*stards?
Aubree did not believe they were Lucian’s children, nor did she believe Lucian would acknowledge the identities of two illegitimate children just to protect Roxanne’s reputation.
In the eyes of bystanders who were unaware of the truth, they might think that Lucian and Roxanne shared a loving bond. However, those who knew them personally would think that Lucian had cheated on Aubree. How could he do this?
No matter what the possibility was, Aubree refused to believe it. Instead, she took out her phone to call Frieda for verification. Similarly, Frieda was shocked when she learned about the truth from Jonathan and realized how important Roxanne was to Lucian.
Hence, Frieda was even more determined to stay away from Aubree. Before she could even come up with an idea, Aubree called. Frieda answered it reluctantly, hoping Aubree was only calling to ask for money.
If that was the case, Frieda could still fork out some. However, she would be at a loss for what to do if Aubree threatened her to harm Roxanne.
After reading Farwell Group’s statement in the morning, there was no way Frieda would foolishly offend Lucian by messing with Roxanne again. Unfortunately, Aubree still had dirt on Frieda, and the latter had no right to say no to Aubree.
Frieda was already uneasy before Aubree even uttered a word. She even took the initiative to ask, “How much more money do you need, Aubree?”
When she finished speaking, Aubree’s icy voice came through the phone speakers. “What’s with the news on the internet? Are the two b*stards really Lucian’s children?”
Even though they were only talking on the phone, Frieda could imagine Aubree’s furious expression from the latter’s tone. She could also imagine Aubree’s reaction after she had given her answer.
Hence, she gulped nervously as she racked her brain for a response that would not anger the person on the other end of the line. Before she could even think of an answer, Aubree made a guess. “It’s not true, isn’t it?” Aubree hissed. Frieda’s heart clenched. “Aubree, please calm down-”
Regardless, Aubree cut her off, “How am I supposed to calm down? I’m going to lose my mind from jealousy! What’s so great about that. b*tch? How is she able to make Lucian go to such lengths for her?”
Her words rendered Frieda speechless. Nonetheless, Frieda could only pray and hope she would not be implicated because of Aubree’s anger. Thankfully, Aubree only spat out a few curses and ended the call.
Frieda sighed a breath of relief when she saw the phone screen darken. Meanwhile, the more Aubree thought about it, the more frustrated she felt. She scrolled through the phone for some time. Suddenly, her eyes gleamed, and she dialed the number at the bottom of her contacts list.
