Chapter 30 The Normal Way
Hearing Reese’s roar, Kieran came back to his senses.
He gave his whole attention to the injuries on Valerie’s body. He forgot to think about why she was bullied.
After all, the Horton family was prestigious.
Both Reese and Kieran thought Valerie would tell her classmates that she was from the Horton family.
Kieran looked at Valerie, who was in his arms, with somewhat complicated eyes.
Valerie relaxed slightly after hearing Reese’s roar.
That was the Horton family she knew.
That was the normal way the Horton family treated her.
“Put me down.”
Kieran was thinking if he should say something for Valerie.
But he saw that Valerie still didn’t react much in the face of Reese’s scolding.
Only then did he feel something was wrong…
“Alright… Don’t take Dad’s words to heart…”
Valerie, of course, wouldn’t take what Reese said to heart.
After all, it was always her who got hurt in the end. There was no need for her to care about it.
Valerie walked gracefully towards the living room.
When Valerie showed up, the living roont instantly went from noisy to quiet
Everyone looked at her.
All of them were too shocked by her terrible appearance to say a word. “Valerie!”
Reyna stood up in surprise and walked quickly to Valerie,
Her eyes reddened. She felt sorry for Valerie. She raised her hand and wanted to touch Valerie, but when she saw the bruises on Valerie’s body, she didn’t dare to do so.
Reese was shocked for a moment. His face darkened once again.
“Look at yourself. How did you get yourself into this state?”
Reyna couldn’t help but frown and glare at Reese.
Although Reese was extremely angry, he calmed down a little after being glared at by Reyna.
However, Reese still frowned as he looked at Valerie,
Reyna gently pulled Valerie towards the living room. Bruce and Zoe
were also there.
They both froze and couldn’t say a word the moment they saw Valerie.
Chapter 30 The Normal Way
Reese sat across from Valerie and looked at her with unfriendly eyes.
“Tell us what happened.”
Valerie sat indifferently on the sofa and looked calmly at Reese.
This was what the Horton family she knew should be.
Even Kieran, who carried Valerie in just now, had changed his face
and was looking at Valerie with an examining expression.
Valerie thought to herself, “If this had happened to Zoe, it would have been a different scene.
“I’ve gotten used to it.”
Valerie slowly told the story.
After hearing it, Reese smashed a water glass on the floor.
“Why didn’t you say you were from the Horton family? Why did you put up with them beating you?”
Reese was furious. He even pointed a finger at Valerie and questioned her.
He had no way of explaining to anyone why a member of the Horton family was beaten like that.
Valerie wasn’t frightened by Reese. She lifted her head and looked at Reese without fear.
“I didn’t do anything wrong. Kieran told me the day I started school to keep a low profile and not to disgrace the Horton family! I didn’t tell anyone I was from the Horton family, and I didn’t ask you for a driver. I’ve been beaten up, but you’re telling me to make it clear that I’m a member of the Horton family.
Chapter 30 the Normat Way
“So do you want me to go public or continue to keep a low profile?”
Valerie said in an organized and decent manner.
Everyone looked at Kieran.
Hearing Valerie’s words, Kieran froze.
He remembered that on the day he sent Valerie to school, he seemed to have said that.
He instantly frowned,
“I told you to keep a low profile so you wouldn’t do anything embarrassing. I didn’t mean for you to put up with others bullying you.”
No matter how Kieran explained it, the accident had happened. The living room fell silent…
Jayvion stood aside and looked at Valerie. He was heartbroken for Valerie.
“Mr. Reese, let’s treat Ms. Valerie first.‘
Jayvion’s words brought Reyna to her senses.
“Yes, treat Valerie first. You can shut up now. Don’t say anything else! You can discuss this matter tomorrow!”
Reyna rolled her eyes viciously at Reese, and then she left the living room with Jayvion and took Valerie to her room so that the family doctor could treat Valerie.
Zoe kept her eyes on Valerie. After Valerie left, she turned her head to Bruce
“Bruce, I want to go see Valerie…”
“Okay, I’ll take you to see her.”
Bruce also sensed the awkward atmosphere between Kieran and Reese. He immediately fled with Zoe.
Only Kieran and Reese were left in the living room.
Reese looked at Kieran and spoke slowly.
“How do you want to resolve this matter?”
“I’ll go to the school with her tomorrow and call all those people’s parents over.”
However, Reese was silent this time.
After a while, he stood up and walked back and forth in the living
Then he sighed deeply.
“Go ask Valerie what she thinks. I can’t figure out her attitude now. She was bullied like that, but her mood didn’t fluctuate too much…”
Hearing what Reese said, Kieran remembered what he was concerned about just now…
“Dad, I think that something is wrong with Valerie…. She may be mentally ill…”
If Reese had heard that before, he would have disagreed and pulled a long face.
But ever since his conversation with Valerie that morning, he’d had the same opinion as Kieran.

Reese pondered for a while…
“Have the best psychiatrist in the country come to our house and examine Valerie.”
It meant that Reese agreed with Kieran’s words.
Reese and Kieran were the pillars of the Horton family.
Since they felt something was wrong with Valerie, it showed that Valerie’s change did shake them up.
Kieran and Reese looked at each other and reached an agreement. They walked towards Valerie’s room.
Before they entered, they heard Reyna’s loud cries and Zoe’s occasional sobbing in fear…
Kieran and Reese wondered what was going on.
They quickened their pace towards Valerie’s room…..
But they stopped at the door…
Valerie, who had undressed, covered her chest with a small quilt. Almost none of her exposed skin was uninjured.
Her skin was covered with cuts from fingernails and marks from being pinched hard.
Moreover, she had large bruises from being punched and kicked.
Valerie was originally skinny.
At the moment, she was hurt so badly that it was heartbreaking…
The family doctor who applied the medicine to Valerie’s cuts frowned involuntarily. She said softly every time she was about to make a move.

1 45 AM
“If you feel any pain, just say it.”
However, Valerie just gripped the sheets and bit her lips tightly. She didn’t cry and just frowned.
The family doctor pressed hard on Valerie’s bruises to treat her.
Valerie’s thin shoulders trembled.
Bruce’s expression was serious. Zoe, who was in his arms, didn’t dare to open her eyes and look at Valerie.
She was afraid…
Kieran and Reese froze in the doorway. They didn’t know what to say for a moment…
Valerie didn’t cry out loud from the beginning to the end, and she didn’t complain about her grievances.
She just suffered in silence.
She suffered the pain in her body and the scold from Reese…
