Old Master Taylor’s expression darkened as well. He said, “Jack, do you think I’m joking with you?”
“Jack, aren’t you a little too childish for doing this? How dare you not answer truthfully to a question from the old master!”
“That’s right, where is your respect for the old master? Do you not remember that if it wasn’t for the old master lending you a million dollars back then, your mother would be dead by now!”
A few of the members from the Taylor family began speaking to Jack angrily.
“Old Master, I’m telling the truth. Sigh, if you don’t believe me then forget it!” Jack shrugged. He did not want to elaborate any further.
If it was not for worrying that Selena might be bullied today, he would not have even came here.
“Wait, who’s this girl?” Cecilia initially wanted to cause trouble for Selena but did not expect Jack to have achieved meritorious service. Her clothes might be real so Cecilia had no choice but to give up. Soon after that, she realized that a stranger’s face was in the room.
“Oh, Cecilia, let me introduce her to everyone. This is my girlfriend, Xena Jackson. We’ve been dating for quite some time and are getting married soon!”
“Since grandpa invited everyone over here, I thought that I should bring her here and introduce her to everyone!”
Ben smiled shyly and seemed servile.
“Ben, that’s not nice of you, is it? This is a lunch for the Taylor family and you got an outsider over here, this…”
“At least Jack has a marriage certificate, the person you’ve brought here…” Cecilia said sarcastically while feeling excited internally.
“Xena is not an outsider. She’s already calling me mom so she’ll definitely marry my Ben soon!” Fiona butt into the conversation upon seeing that Cecilia was bullying Xena.
“Stop it, some people haven’t been to a place like this so isn’t it normal to want to experience it?” Another woman sneered on the side.
“Yes, it’s nothing for us, but for some people, it’s an achievement to bring his girlfriend here!” Cecilia said as she looked over at Ben.
Ben’s expression darkened but he did not know how to defend himself. He glared at Jack who was standing next to him. It was this bastard’s fault. If it was not for him getting his sister pregnant, would he be shamed this way today? If it was not for Jack, his family would be living lavishly today. Who knows, his sister might have been the family heir. At that point, who would have the guts to shame him this way?
“Xena, you have to think this through. Although Ben is a Taylor, you should know where he stands since he stays in a place like that!”
“You’re pretty so it would be a waste to marry him. You might be poor for the rest of your life!”
After giving it some thought, Cecilia went over to stir trouble again.
Xena smiled shyly and replied, “Sister, you’re too nice. Ben is nice to me and I like him for who he is. I haven’t been thinking about anything else so as long as I’m happy, I’m good!”
“Cecilia, are you too free? What does our business have anything to do with you? You’re just jealous because you don’t have a boyfriend, right?” Ben could not stand it anymore. He finally rebutted Cecilia.
“What are you talking about? I have nothing to be jealous of. It’s not that I don’t have a boyfriend, it’s just that I haven’t found anyone who meets my standards. If I wanted to have one, I’d definitely find a man who’s rich, powerful, and capable of protecting me. As for someone like you, tsk, anyone who’s not an idiot wouldn’t want you!” Cecilia said sarcastically as she crossed her arms in front of her chest.
“Grandpa, is there anything worth celebrating today?”
