Everyone stood in shock at her words. No one could believe Natasha dared say that.
“Natasha? What nonsense are you spouting? Are you sleep talking?!” Jessica gave her a look.
Natasha said calmly, “I’m fully awake, and I am well aware of what I just said. It is regrettable, but
I need to express my feelings today. Tyler and I are unsuited for each other.”
“Natasha, what do you mean by this?” Jayla’s brow knitted. A slightly uneasy feeling crept up within her.
“I’m backing out of this marriage.” Just like that, Natasha dropped the bomb.
“You’re backing out?” Jayla’s expression darkened at her words. She snapped at her. “Natasha Harmon, are you insane?! How dare you break off a union with the Grants? The audacity!” Jessica warned, “Natasha, stop your nonsense. You can’t say those things lightly!”
The Grant family was part of the Tremendous Three. Whether it was their connections or their legacy, the Grants surpassed the Harmons in every aspect. Especially with Tyler, the exceptional genius, at the helm, the Grant family had been elevated to unparalleled heights. It wouldn’t be too far off to say that they were very close to becoming the strongest among the Tremendous Three. Many affluent families could only dream of having an association with the Grant family. However, Natasha wanted to back out of the marriage instead. It was like slapping the Grants in the face.
“I am indeed the party at fault in this situation. I sincerely apologize. If you think this will deal a blow to your reputation, you can be the one to make the announcement. I’ll take the blame. In any case, I will never marry Tyler,” Natasha spoke calmly with a resolute gaze.
“Natasha Harmon, do you think you are the one who calls the shots here? Who do you think you are? This union is a joint decision between both families. You are not worthy of giving your opinion!” Jayla erupted in a fury.
Natasha responded coldly, “I can comply with everything else the family arranges, but marriage is out of the question!”
“Hah! I don’t think you understand the situation. You should be honored that my brother is interested in you! As for calling off this marriage, your opinion doesn’t matter. My brother is the one who calls the shots!” Jayla glared at her.
“Then, kindly inform your brother to call off the marriage.”
“Dream on!” Jayla refused immediately. “My brother always gets what he wants. It doesn’t matter if you agree to it or not. This wedding is going ahead as planned!”
“I will not marry Tyler.” Natasha shook her head again. She refused to destroy her chance at happiness for a marriage of convenience.
“Natasha, as the daughter of a prominent family, you should be aware that there are certain matters beyond your control. You should think about the entire Harmon family, not just yourself. If you dare to break off this marriage, you will be making an enemy out of the Grants!
“Even if my brother won’t touch you, your enemies will definitely not let you go easily. They have
restrained themselves thus far because of our support. How long do you think your family can last without our protection? I recall that your father is in conflict with the Dark Lord. Without my brother, do you think you guys can fend him off by yourselves?
“Think carefully about it! In seven days, we will be attending the Harmons‘ annual family gathering. Whether we end up friends or foes depends entirely on your decision!
“We’re leaving.” After leaving them with those harsh words, Jayla stormed off with her entourage.
