Chapter 802 Inexplicable Reason
“P… Pamela?!” When Florence saw Pamela, her expression changed drastically in shock.
Lucas turned his head to look at the young woman who suddenly entered. She was wearing a cream-colored trench coat, with her waist-length hair draped behind her, exuding a unique feminine charm. Her facial features were so exquisite that they seemed hard carved. She had defined brows, a perky nose, sweet cherry lips, and porcelain skin. She was a ravishing beauty. A trace of surprise appeared in Lucas’s eyes. The young beauty in front of him was on par with Cheyenne in terms of features and figure. She even seemed to exude a dazzling noble temperament and aura.
For some reason, Lucas felt that he had met her somewhere before.
“Pamela, what nonsense are you babbling here? I have important things to talk about with the two guests here. You should leave!” Florence snapped with displeasure, her face sullen after hearing what Pamela said.
But Pamela didn’t pay attention to her at all and instead looked at the gorgeous Cheyenne with an inexplicable look in her eyes.
“Let me introduce myself first. I am Pamela Howard and technically your cousin.” Pamela walked up to Cheyenne with a smile and took the initiative to extend her hand for a friendly handshake.
Cheyenne looked at Pamela warily and didn’t reach out to shake hands with the equally gorgeous beauty.
Even though Pamela said that she was her cousin, Cheyenne didn’t have the slightest sense of closeness to her just because of this. On the contrary, Cheyenne felt uncomfortable about the way Pamela had looked at her just now. There was a strong aggression hidden deep in her friendly gaze and smile, making Cheyenne subconsciously keep her guard up.
“For power and status? What do you mean?” Cheyenne asked with a frown.
Pamela didn’t care about Cheyenne’s reluctance to shake hands with her and instead withdrew her hand gracefully with a magnanimous smile.
Looking at Florence, she said with a smile, “Aunt Pamela, you never told me that Mrs. Gray is your biological daughter!
“Since you two have reunited with each other, you should tell Cheyenne what happened back then, shouldn’t you?”
Florence narrowed her eyes, anger written all over her face. “This has nothing to do with you! Pamela, get lost immediately! Do you hear
But Pamela obviously wasn’t afraid of incurring Florence’s wrath.
The smile on her face remained unchanged as she said, “Aunt Florence, how can this be none of my business? You can’t forget what your mission for coming to California is. No matter what, I’m the one chosen by the family, aren’t
Neither Lucas nor Cheyenne understood what Pamela’s statement about being the chosen one meant.
But Florence was well aware of what she meant.
Previously, the Howards had arranged for Florence to bring Pamela to California to look for the famous Master of California and then try to get closer to him so that Pamela could marry him.
Although Cheyenne was Florence’s daughter and also carried the blood of the Howards, she wasn’t from the family’s direct lineage, unlike Pamela.
But due to Florence’s selfishness, she wanted to let her daughter marry the Master of California. Moreover, Pamela claimed to be in love with someone else and wasn’t willing to marry the Master of California. Thus, Florence had been neglecting the issue.
Now that Pamela mentioned it, it suddenly dawned on Florence that Pamela was going to get involved.
“Didn’t you tell me before that you wouldn’t agree to complete this mission even if you died?” Florence questioned coldly with a gloomy expression.
She had come up with an excellent plan at first. Pamela wanted to choose her own marriage, so she was glad to go along with it. Previously, she had put on the act precisely to make Pamela reveal her unwillingness to marry the Master of California as part of a marriage alliance.
In this way, Florence could facilitate the marriage of her daughter, Cheyenne, and the Master of California. Like this, she would not only be able to complete the mission the Howards gave her, but she would be able to use the power of the Master of California to stabilize her position in the family.
Florence had already calculated and made plans for everything, but she didn’t expect Pamela to interfere at the critical moment of her plan.
Flames were about to emerge from Florence’s eyes as she glowered at Pamela.
Pamela smiled faintly. “That was before the competition began. Now, I’ve already changed my mind!”
“You!” Florence flew into a rage and was about to teach Pamela a lesson as an elder. “Enough!” Cheyenne interrupted in annoyance. “I don’t care what kind of mission or plan you have or how your relationship is. Please take your argument about this outside. I’m asking a question now!”
After both of them fell silent, Cheyenne looked at Florence and asked again, “I already said it. I just want to know why you abandoned me in the first place.”
A trace of agony appeared on Florence’s face, and she didn’t answer Cheyenne’s question as she changed the subject. “Cheyenne, let bygones be bygones, okay? I don’t want to talk about what happened back then. You just need to know that you are indeed my daughter and that I love you very much now. I will surely treat you well in the future to make up for my past regrets over the years, okay?” “Aunt Florence, this is your fault. You haven’t seen your daughter for years, yet you refuse to tell her the truth. If I were your daughter, I wouldn’t believe your empty promises!” Pamela smiled and followed up with a question. “Is it possible that you can’t bring yourself to tell her what happened back then?”
“Shut up! You’re in no place to talk here!” Florence was livid. “If you continue acting like this, don’t blame me for being rude to you!”
Hearing this, Pamela didn’t become annoyed and instead stuck her tongue out like a young girl pretending to be cute.
“She’s right. At this point, you still refuse to tell me the truth. I’ll ask you one last time. Why did you abandon me back then?” Cheyenne’s eyes were red and swollen, and there were still teardrops on her eyes as she looked at Florence with misery and disappointment.
She wondered if things were really as Pamela said, that Florence couldn’t give her a valid reason because the truth was unbearable.
Facing Cheyenne’s bright eyes, Florence suddenly turned her face away and chose to continue hiding it from her. “Cheyenne, let’s not rake up the past and just live well together from now on, okay?”
“Fine! Since you won’t tell me, we don’t have to acknowledge each other! Honey, let’s go!” Tears were streaming down Cheyenne’s face as she took Lucas’s hand, turned around, and walked out of the private room.
“No, Cheyenne! Wait, don’t go!” Florence immediately panicked and hurriedly ran forward to grab Cheyenne’s wrist.
