Dew lost her cool as she grabbed Harold’s hand and dragged him over with great force.
Adina was afraid of hurting Harold if she pulled him back, so she directly let go of him.
Let go of me, evil witch!” Harold kicked and stepped on Dew’s dress with his leather shoes. He instantly left a footprint on her pink velvet dress.
Dew was furious.
She grabbed Harold’s arm and refused to let go.
“If you want to go crazy, go back to the Daugherty family home.” Duke’s cold voice was heard. “Mr. Brown, send our guest away!”
Luckily, other guests had not arrived at the mansion, so not many people witnessed the out-of-control scene.
Mr. Brown walked over respectfully. “Ms. Daugherty, this way please.”
Dew instantly snapped out of her daze as if a bowl of cold water had been poured onto her head. “No, I’m not leaving.”
She grabbed George’s hand, as though he was her last straw. “ George, please don’t let your dad chase me out. I can’t leave. I’m very cold. Can you please let me go inside and rest for a while? I won’t make a scene anymore. I won’t…”
She made herself look really small.
George’s eyes were filled with hatred, but he also seemed reluctant.
He pursed his lips and said, “Mom, please go upstairs and rest for a while. Don’t attend the party tonight.”
She would do whatever as long as she could continue staying there.
Dew dared not even look Duke in the eyes. She just lifted the hem of her dress and walked into the banquet hall in a hurry.
The farce finally came to an end.
Alden looked down, walked over, and softly said, “Mom, let’s go home after you give her the birthday present.”
The Winters family was too complicated. If they did not pay attention, they would be attacked. He did not want his mother to be in such an environment.
Adina smiled as she caressed his hair. “What are you worried about, boy? Later, take Mel upstairs and play, okay? I’ll call you once it’s time to leave.”
“I’ll look after Mel. Don’t worry, Aunt Adina!” Harold patted his chest and said.
Adina smiled and nodded. Then, Duke asked Mr. Brown to send the four children upstairs.
It was only after the children left that Duke turned around, looked at the woman beside him, and softly said, “I didn’t send the invitation card to Dew. She’s my mother’s guest.”
Adina was stunned.
Was this man giving her an explanation?
Actually, Dew’s appearance at the Winters family party was within her expectations. She did not think that an explanation was
She smiled faintly and said, “I know. Let’s go inside and send your mother my birthday wish.”
She held the birthday gift while she followed Duke into the villa.
Adina was dressed in a snow-colored gown tonight. Under the chandelier, she looked exceptionally stunning like a snow fairy.
When she walked next to Duke, she instantly attracted everyone’s attention.
Mrs. Winters was sitting in the main seat. The moment she glanced over indifferently, she was stunned.
Why did she find this lady familiar? It was as if she had seen her somewhere.
Then, Mrs. Winters looked at her son. Her son would always act coldly and arrogantly. He would usually walk very quickly with his long legs. Whenever she walked with Duke, she often could not keep up.
However, at this moment, she could clearly tell that her son had slowed down, seemingly allowing the lady to keep up.
This woman actually managed to make her son willingly slow down and wait for her.
So, was this the woman whom Duke had fallen for?
Her appearance was outstanding, and her demeanor was extraordinary. She was indeed more suitable than Dew to stand beside Duke.
Mrs. Winters wondered which family this lady came from.
