Since the incident, the attorneys have kept talking about it non-stop.
Midday had already arrived as time continued to pass.
Linda was on the move, and she was on the way to the Benett’s old residence.
She brought along gifts for the Benett family.
Linda gave a heads up to Mrs. Wickam that she will be dropping by her residence.
As soon as she entered, Linda warmly greeted Mrs. Wickam. “It’s a sunny day outside,” Mrs. Wickam remarked.
Linda nodded in agreement. “Good day, aunty.”
Linda handed her a gift box full of expensive skin care products. “Auntie, I’ve pulled some strings to get you this gift. They’re a famous skincare company imported from abroad. Let me know if you like them, I’ll send you more in the future.”
Mrs. Wickam gave a polite smile and replied, “Oh Linda, you always bring a gift when you drop by. Don’t feel obligated to do so every time, alright? You’ve saved my son’s life, and for that, I’m eternally grateful.”
Linda smiled and shook her head. “It was just a gut reaction. If I had to do it again, I would have run.” She joked.
Mrs. Wickam laughed. “Haha. Oh, Linda. Alright, come sit.”
Linda gave a quick nod and they both walked towards the lounge chair. Linda couldn’t help but comment, “Is it just you today aunty?”
Mr. Wickam paused for a moment and gave a smile. “Your grandmother is here too. Sadly, she isn’t feeling well today, so she won’t be joining us.”
Linda nodded and said, “Well, I won’t disturb grandma then.”
“That’s alright. It’ll just be the two of us. So, how are you in the past couple of days?”
“It’s manageable. However, I’ll meet up with Gareth when I have the time. It may take some persuasion, but it’s good for a husband and wife to spend quality time.”
“Oh, my dear…” Mrs. Wickam chided. “You are too kind for your own good. Elisa can never compete with you in terms of kindness. I have never agreed to their divorce.” She professed. “Even after three years of marriage, they’ve not produced a single heir.”
Linda gave a disagreeable expression. “Aunty, I need to tell you something. I saw Mr. Beckett with Elisa at a café the other day.” She remarked. “Even with their relationship hanging on a thread, Mr. Beckett is still adamant in getting them back together.”
Mrs. Wickam’s expression grew grave. “You saw Jerry?”
Linda simply nodded. “Auntie, did you not know about this?”
Mrs. Wickam turned pale. Linda continued, “It’s not just me, someone else had spotted them and leaked a photo on the Internet. They’ve gone viral and rumors are spreading like wildfire.”
“What kind of rumors?” Mrs. Wickam implored. She looked at Linda with a calm expression.
“Well…” Linda said with a tone of embarrassment. “Auntie, you know how the Internet is. Netizens would believe anything, so don’t take it too seriously.”
Mrs. Wickam took up the phone as soon as she realized something was amiss. She belonged to the elite group after all. They frequently pay attention to occurrences such as this.
Internally, Linda was overjoyed that everything was going as planned. She has gained her mother-in-law’s trust while she dragged both Elisa and her father-in-law’s name through the mud.
“This has gone too far!”
