Chapter 111 Next Steps
At the Benett’s residence.
Linda was in a very good mood. She was humming a song while playing on her phone on the sofa.
Her good mood caught Rose by surprise. She walked over and sat next to her, “You seem like you’re in a good mood today.”
“Yeah, Mom. I got Gareth’s grandma a very nice gift.”
Rose was befuddled by her puny fulfillment, “What’s so special and celebratory about getting a gift?”
“Of course it’s not just about getting a gift!”
Linda took out her phone and showed Rose the gift she got for Gareth’s grandma. The smile on her face lingered, “Take a look at this gift. What do you think?”
“Well, not bad!” Rose nodded agreeably, “Top-notched quality with elegance. I heard that his grandma prefers jade.”
Linda smiled, “How would I know his grandma’s preference? I chose this one all thanks to Elisa.”
“What do you mean?” Rose was puzzled.
Linda put away her phone. She smiled and said, ” I ran into Elisa at the mall today. She was shopping for a gift for Gareth’s grandma. She spent a significant amount of time with his grandma and knows her preference well. So, I observed the gift she chose and bought something similar that would suit his grandma’s taste.”
Rose commended her wittiness, “You are such a cheeky smart girl!”
Linda smirked, “There are a lot of people comparing me against Elisa. Of course my distinction supersedes her, but I need to do better than this in order to consolidate validation from the Wickam family.”
Seeing Rose nodding in accord, she couldn’t help but curl her lips, “Just now, Elisa got an ordinary few hundred thousand bucks bracelet as a birthday gift but my gift is way more extravagant and sophisticated than hers.”
“So you…” Rose seemed like she had something to say.
Linda nodded, “That’s right. Elisa will definitely be attending Old Madam Wickam’s birthday banquet. On that day, I’ll get someone to deliberately showcase our gifts side by side. Everyone will see how petty Elisa’s gift is and how sophisticated my taste in gifting is.”
Rose let out a chuckle of realization. She patted Linda on her forehead dotingly, “You are so smart! My daughter is absolutely outstanding!”
Linda closed her eyes and leaned back on the sofa with a faint smile, “You’ll see, Mom! I will definitely sabotage Elisa so that she will never be able to mingle in the influential elitist circle again! She used to be the first daughter of the Benett family, but her father passed away. Right now, all the spotlight and power belong to my father, and she is at rock bottom!!”
Rose was even more delighted. She concurred in unison, “Obviously! No one can be compared to you! My dear, you are the best! ”
Seeing Linda smiling without saying a word, Rose carried on and said, “But the gift is just to demonstrate your sophisticated taste. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything or help you in winning their hearts.”
Linda’s eyelashes trembled. She opened her eyes, and said cluelessly, “I know. But now… there is no better way.”
Linda looked at Rose unwittingly, “Do you have an idea, Mom?”
“Of course! I have an outstanding daughter. I bet the Wickam family will like my idea too.”
Linda was excited to hear Rose’s idea, “Spill it, Mom! Tell me!.”
Rose leaned forward to Linda and whispered in her ear.
