Butt Malaya lucepted li with a smile, showing how strong her mentally was.
Cheyware, took at these things on the table. They are your dowry. I found every single item from the warehouse.”
Warehouse? Did she really think I didn’t see her and Nora lurking around at the auction that day?
However, Cheyenne wasn’t bothered to expose her hypocrisy. As long as she got the items back, that was enough.
Thank you so much. These items are all exquisite treasures. If even one was missing, my mom would turn in her grave if she knew.” “Oh, how could that ber
Malaya watched as Cheyenne had a few servants carry the items upstairs to her room.
She felt heartbroken. To redeem these antiques, she had spent over 13 million!
“Alright, I’m a bit tired now. I’ll go back to my room and rest. Good night.”
After saying that, Cheyenne gave a light smile, elegantly yawned, and headed upstairs.
Once her figure disappeared at the staircase, Nora angrily kicked the table in front of her. “Bang!
A loud sound rang out, and even she winced from the pain, looking at Malaya with grievances.
“Mommy, look at her arrogant appearance. I wish she were dead.”
“Hush, my dear, you shouldn’t talk like that. Alright, don’t be sad, that money will come back to us sooner or later!”
Malaya covered her daughter’s mouth and said coldly.
Hearing this, Nora finally felt a little calmer. She looked up at her mom with eyes full of anticipation.
“Mm, I swear. Whatever she has, you’ll have it too. And if you don’t have it, I’ll help you snatch it!”
After all, she loved her daughter the most.
How could she allow Cheyenne to trample on Nora’s head and act arrogantly?
Just you wait. There’s a long road ahead.
But Malaya heard the sound of a car engine outside the villa early in the morning.
It was very noisy.
The constant movement of furniture made it impossible for her to sleep.
Annoyed, she sat up and hammered the two–meter–wide velvet bed underneath her.
Her delicate face was wrinkled with anger, and her eyes were tinged with dark circles.
She had a sleepless night.
For the first time, she dreamed of that fool, Selah.
Selah was wearing a white dress, holding a windmill, and standing under a tree, smiling at her.
That smile seemed mocking.
Malaya, wearing a white lace ruffled nightgown, stepped out of her room to take a look.
She was met with the sight of an unfamiliar rugged face.
The man was wearing a black t–shirt, around forty years old, and had a rough and tall appearance,
His looks were ordinary.
He was sweaty and exhausted, his t–shirt sticking to his solid and sturdy back.
Who was he?
And in his hands, he was holding a huge wooden rack.
Wasn’t that Cheyenne’s beloved bookshelf?
It was said to be made of expensive nanmu wood and had been cherished in her study for years.
It was locked up.
Malaya had once had her eyes on that bookshelf. After all, nanmu wood was even more expensive than gold.
Unfortunately, she couldn’t find the key.
She didn’t dare to do anything excessive, as breaking in might arouse George and the family’s suspicion.
So she had to give up.
How could Cheyenne suddenly unlock her study and allow a stranger to touch her belongings?
Chapter 26 H You Dont Have 11. Moming Will Help You Snatch it
The moment the moving worker saw Malaya, his eyes lit up.
The ladies of wealthy families were indeed different.
She had fair and smooth skin and, even at forty, looked like she was in her thirties, retaining her charm. Especially when she ran out without wearing a bra, the nightgown’s fabric was very thin.
After just a few steps, everything was clearly visible.
“What are you doing? It’s embarrassing. Hurry back and put on your clothes!” George’s furious voice sounded in her ears, waking Malays up from her daze. She suddenly remembered that she had rushed out without putting on a bra.
That country bumpkin stared at her for so long; it was so embarrassing!
In the living room downstairs, on the sofa.
Cheyenne also witnessed the scene just now, a faint trace of mockery appeared in her eyes. Softly she said, “Malaya is really sexy, even her nightgown can’t cover up that great figure!”
To George, her compliment sounded extremely unpleasant.
As a man, the older he got, the more he cared about his dignity!
Listening to his daughter’s sarcasm and thinking about the moment when Malaya and that lowly country man locked eyes for almost a minute, his anger escalated.
She was obviously just being dissolute!
At her age, she still wore such a nightgown. How had he not noticed how dissolute she was before?
Layne chuckled helplessly.
He reached out and knocked on Cheyenne’s hand. Although it was reprimand, his voice was still as indulgent as ever.
“What do you know, little girl? Adults‘ affairs are none of your business!”
Although he also disliked that woman.
Malaya took away everything that originally belonged to his daughter, Selah, and even intended to destroy Cheyenne’s life.
But with so many people present, it was not appropriate for Cheyenne to say that.
If it got out, people would say that she was intentionally targeting her stepmother.
He didn’t care if that woman was embarrassing herself or not. But his granddaughter Cheyenne was the best in this world!
Being reprimanded by her grandfather, Cheyenne playfully stuck out her tongue.
“Grandpa, I know I was wrong.”
Layne smiled gently, put down the teacup in his hand, and then looked at George in front of him. His hand trembled slightly under his long sleeves.
“It’s been a long time since we last met.”
George was afraid of this formidable man.
He quickly handed him a cigarette and sighed, “Yes, ever since Selah passed away, you went to Shedale. It’s been over ten years since we last saw each
“But in these ten years, I see you haven’t made much progress! The Lawrence Group has been declining under your leadership!”
When he left Akloit, the Edwards Group was comparable to the Foley Group.
But now, they couldn’t even reach their threshold!
It was truly embarrassing.

Fortunately ** This time Layne happened to know old Mr. Foley from the Folley Family who extended a helping hand so Lawrence Group could surve
Years later, old Mr. Foley suddenly said Nora and Kelvin were a good match and demanded marriage between them with any conditions they wanted
However, kelvin had a reputation for being cold–hearted with a bad temper within Akloit’s business circle. There were also rumors about his unattracthe appearance and unpredictable personality which often led to scandalous news stories.
Malaye certainly wouldn’t allow her only seventeen–year–old daughter Nora to marry such a man, but George couldn’t bear losing the Foley Family’s support either
After much consideration, they ended up forcing Cheyenne onto the wedding car despite her notorious reputation while also demanding an exorbitant amount of money which became headline news throughout Akloit City.
Old Mr. Edwards only found out about all of this later on.
When Cheyenne turned eighteen, he was doing research abroad.
He had planned to come back and surprise her on her birthday, but instead he was shocked to find out that she had already gotten married
And it seemed like old Mr. Foley was even more pleased with his new granddaughter–in–law, boasting that he wouldn’t mistreat Cheyenne.
Layne finally let it be after that.
But Kelvin saw the whole thing as a scheme by Cheyenne.
Even though he didn’t care who he ended up marrying, he despised this kind of scheming behavior.
Especially since the Lawrence family demanded 100 million dollars and showed their insatiable greediness. He was very disdainful of them.
If it weren’t for his grandfather’s pressure, he would never have married such a woman.
“Dad, you know how hard it is to do business these days. What can we do without connections and background?” George said.
Although the Lawrence Group had been around for many years, their business model was outdated. Besides, Kelvin only gave them 100 million dollars but completely ignored them afterwards.
Every time George invited him to dinner, Kelvin refused by saying that he was very busy. “Alright, the company was bought by you back then, so it’s your business and I don’t care!”
As for the Edwards family’s connections, why were they unwilling to collaborate with George?
Most likely it was because George married Malaya less than a year after Selah’s death, which made everyone look down on him and naturally withdrew
“I came today because I heard that someone had taken possession of things my daughter left for my granddaughter. I came all the way from Shedale specifically for this.”
Although the old man was smiling, the probing in his eyes made George’s heart tremble.
He was even more embarrassed.
“Dad, you misunderstood. Malaya saw that Cheyenne wasn’t home and locked those items in the warehouse because he worried that the servants might clumsily break something.”
While George was speaking, Malaya came down the stairs wearing a new set of clothes.
Her long hair was coiled up at the back of her head, and a thumb–sized pearl necklace adorned her neck.
Radiant and luxurious, elegant and composed.
No matter how you look at her, she appears to be a cultured wealthy housewife.
“Dad, this is really a misunderstanding. I have found all the things and returned them to Cheyenne. You can ask her.”
Malaya sat next to George, answering in a soft voice.
Her calling him “Dad” made Layne feel uncomfortable all over.
He snorted. “Don’t call me ‘Dad‘. I only have one daughter, Selah. You’re surnamed Mitchell but call me ‘Dad‘. How do you call your real father?”
It was ridiculous that a mistress called her husband’s first wife’s father “Dad“.
Malaya really had thick skin. Layne thought Malaya must have bullied Selah when she was alive.
At the thought of his deceased daughter, Layne’s expression grew even colder.
Malaya was asking for trouble and didn’t know how to smooth things over. She decided not to say anything and sat there awkwardly.
“Grandpa, don’t be angry. I only have one mom, so don’t worry,” Malaya said quickly.
The grandfather and granddaughter echoed each other, which really pissed Malaya off.
“Well then,” Layne said as he pulled out a piece of paper from his wallet. “When your mother got married back then, I picked out all the wedding gifts and even wrote down a list which I found last night in my notebook.”
The paper was yellowed with age but filled with history.
