Chapter 30: Chapter 33: Who will help her in times of trouble?
Madam Gray resented Lily’s mother her whole life.
She hated that her mother, a lady from a prestigious family, had overshadowed her. She hated that her mother’s strong hand left little room for manipulation.
But what she hated most, and often spoke of, was her belief that Lily’s mother had caused her father’s death.
However, Lily would always remember that her father’s death had nothing to do with her mother.
If anything, it was her grandmother and aunt who had caused her father’s demise!
“No, mother didn’t…” She didn’t want to cry, but the betrayal of her own flesh and blood caused tears to uncontrollably stream down her face.
Lily stubbornly tilted her head back, trying to prevent the tears from falling.
From a young age, her mother had always protected her under her wing. Though she taught Lily to be strong and independent, she had also shielded her from many hardships.
Her grandmother and aunt had caused trouble before, but back then, little Lily always had a strong figure protecting her.
Lily had always known that her grandmother and aunt had ulterior motives, but this time, she truly felt their malicious intent.
Without her mother’s protection, she was nothing.
Without absolute power, she couldn’t even hold onto her title as Miss Gray.
Lily suddenly recalled the words of that man— “Become my wife, Mrs. Wilson, and 1 can make sure no one bullies you again.”
Yes, having lost everything, could it be that she could only rely on that man to take back what was hers?
After getting the signed divorce agreement, Austin Lucas left triumphantly with his lawyer.
The remaining Gray family members discussed her future while Madam Gray berated her, coming up with schemes and plans.
In the end, everyone decided that Lily didn’t deserve to be part of the Gray family. Since she had already been kicked out by Madam Gray, she had no right to stay in the Gray family mansion.
“Fine, that settles it. We’ll meet at the lawyer’s office in three days. When you transfer the remaining Gray family shares, I won’t bother with you any longer.” Madam Gray shamelessly made the decision for Lily before dismissing the others. “Get this liability out of my sight. Seeing her brings bad luck—1 knew the Gray family was suffering these past few years because of her and her mother!”
With Madam Gray’s order, the others were more than happy to take the opportunity to stomp on Lily.
Lily was then kicked out of the Gray family mansion without any of her belongings. All her identification documents and cell phone were confiscated by the Gray family members.
Before she left, her aunt Rowena leaned against the door with a smug smile, her red lips saying, “I’ll hold onto your seal, identification documents, and cell phone for now. Once you sign the agreement at the lawyer’s office in three days, I’ll return everything to you.”
Rowena’s daughter, Lily’s cousin, Milly, looked at her with contempt throughout the entire process.
As if Lily was a stray dog that had lost its home.
And Lily had to admit that, being kicked out like this, she was indeed like a homeless dog, with nowhere to go.
Lily slowly walked away from the Gray family mansion. She planned to go to her best friend, Vivian Walters’ house. Having nothing to her name, she needed a place to stay.
Suddenly, a black luxury car stopped in front of her.
The car window rolled down, revealing Samuel Mckinley’s face.
“Miss Gray, get in. Mr. Lucas is waiting for you.”
Lily hesitated for a moment before immediately opening the car door and getting in.
