Chapter 65 Not Going Away
Elisa paused and turned around to look at her coldly, as if they did not know each other.
Linda’s friends frowned, clearly knowing who Elisa was.
Even though everyone was annoyed to see her here, Linda walked to her and said in surprise, “What a coincidence, Elisa. Who are you here with? If we know each other, why don’t we have a meal together?”
When Elisa heard that, she could not help letting out a cold snort internally. This is one of her greatest strengths – no matter how much she hates a person she would never show it on her face. Instead, she would put on a graceful and elegant act, making others think of her as a gracious person.
She seemed to be able to tolerate anyone, and her feigned elegance made others think highly of her. In addition to that, due to her upbringing and family status, many people yearned to be her friend. Since she was with Gareth, they couldn’t wait to suck up to her.
Elisa shot her a cold stare. “Is it fun to ask the obvious?”
Though surprised, Linda did not show any displeasure at all. Instead, she seemed to be thinking about it. “What do you mean, Elisa? Do I know your friend well?”
Shirley Lowe was one of her friends that did not like Elisa since the beginning, so she immediately chirped in with annoyance, “Elisa, what do you mean? Linda asked you to join us out of good intentions, yet you replied in such a rude manner. It’s solely your fault that Mr. Wickam doesn’t like you; are you blaming it on Linda?”
Linda’s smile froze upon hearing that. She quickly turned around to look at Shirley and explained, “It’s not what you think. Elisa is just feeling sad right now. I’m sure she’ll be fine after a while. I’ve been close with her since we were young, so please don’t misunderstand her.”
Shirley frowned. In a justified tone, she continued, “Linda, you are simply too kind. You treat her as if she’s your sister, but has she ever returned the feelings? Why are you so careless? You’ll be taken advantage of!”
Linda laughed helplessly after hearing that. “You are exaggerating things, Shirley. Of course, I’ll put my guard up with strangers, but Elisa is my sister.”
Alisa Whittman also shot a dissatisfied glance at Linda. “Linda, can’t you see how she treats you? I know you care about your family more than anything else, but some people are simply ungrateful b*tches. Even if you care about her, she betrayed you and hurt you in the end. Aren’t you hurt about that? Anyone would feel devastated!”
Linda quickly frowned and defended Elisa. “Don’t be like this, guys. Elisa is my sister.”
Upon hearing that, Elisa wanted to roll her eyes. Even though Linda had been emphasizing that Elisa was her sister, she had never once cleared the air for her. To be frank, she approved of her friends’ rude remarks.
Ungrateful b*tch, huh? How come I never realized that she’s such a hypocrite?
She could not be bothered with them, and instead she turned and walked to a waitress that had been looking at them, unsure of what to do.
Before she could take another step, Shirley suddenly took a step back and spreaded her arms. “Have I allowed you to walk away?” she roared.
Elisa’s face darkened upon hearing that, while Linda quickly pulled Shirley back. “What are you doing, Shirley? Let her go!”
Elisa had been silent all this while, but she looked calm when she said, “Go away.”
“I shan’t!” Shirley replied adamantly, with a harsh look on her face. “Do you expect me to go away just because you asked? If you don’t apologize to Linda today, this will never be over!”
