My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 146

146 Marriage Certificate

Taylor’s voice suddenly rose. “Although I have never acknowledged you as my daughter, the Olsen family has raised you. Is this the attitude you use to speak to

me?!”

His words attracted the attention of the people around them, who then looked over in their direction.

Mrs. Olsen immediately frowned and said, “Mind the

occasion.”

Keira didn’t want to argue here either, so she simply lowered her gaze and stayed silent.

Taylor just snorted coldly. “Seeing her just annoys me. Shirley, let’s go to wish old Mrs. Horton a happy birthday!”

But Mrs. Olsen frowned. “With my health like this, I’d better not go in front of old Mrs. Horton and bring bad luck. You go. I have a few more words to say to Keira.”

Taylor then looked at Keira warily. “Shirley isn’t in good health, so don’t say any nonsense here that will

make her upset. Do you hear me?”

Keira ignored him.

Taylor lost interest and, in the end, still went to old Mrs. Horton’s side with Isla.

Seeing that they had finally left and that Isla hadn’t noticed what was going on over here, Mrs. Olsen took a step forward and took Keira’s hand, “Keira, you…”

“Ma’am, is your health getting worse again?”

Keira cut in before she could finish speaking.

Mrs. Olsen was taken aback, then coughed lightly., “It’s nothing, just a little relapse.”

Keira was puzzled. “Are you coughing again? Didn’t I give you cough medicine? Haven’t you taken it, or have you finished it?”

After that, she shook her head. “That shouldn’t be the case. The bottle I gave you had a hundred pills; that’s enough for three months.”

Mrs. Olsen said with a smile, “I’m fine, just been

thinking a lot these past few days. Let’s not talk about

Keira, about your relationship with Mr. Horton, it’s
only a rumor, isn’t it?”

Keira knew Mrs. Olsen would ask this question.

Not wanting to make Mrs. Olsen worry, she began, “Actually, he and I…”

Before she could finish her sentence, an excited voice came through. “Miss Olsen!”

Keira turned her head and saw Rebecca slowly walking

over.

She used to be in a wheelchair because she was too weak, but these past few days, her condition improved, and she could walk on her own. Today, she wore a pink dress and, upon reaching Keira, affectionately linked her arm. “I’ve missed you so much!”

She sounded very confident.

Mr. and Mrs. Allen followed her in resignation. Mr. Allen came up, laughing. “She can be so clingy! Just a few days without seeing Miss Olsen, and she speaks

like this.”

Mrs. Allen feigned anger. “You’ve never been this dependent on me or your mother. If people didn’t know any better, they’d think Miss Olsen was your real sister!”

Rebecca flashed a playful smile at them and continued to gaze at Keira, then whispered, “Miss Olsen, even though I was in the hospital, I’ve always been keeping track of you. I’ve heard that everyone’s been whispering that there’s something indecent between you and Mr. Horton, but that’s definitely not true, right?”

Her clear eyes no longer bore the scars of the past and were full of concern. Keira smiled. “Yeah, those are just rumors. My relationship with Mr. Horton…”

Before she finished, Rebecca interjected. “Your relationship with him must be completely innocent. Of that, I’m absolutely sure! I’ve met Mr. Horton; he’s so cold. How could he be good enough for you? You would never be interested in him. But I heard you got married. What a pity. Otherwise, I’d introduce my brother to you! It’s time that old man got married!”

Keira’s lips twitched as she found herself at a loss for

words.

Why was it so difficult to reveal her relationship with

Lewis?

Before she could speak again, Mrs. Allen was already angry. “How can you talk about your brother like that? It’s only because he’s not here. Otherwise, let’s see if you dare to be so disrespectful!”

Rebecca stuck out her tongue and whispered to Keira, “My brother heard about old Mrs. Horton’s 86th birthday and wanted to come since our family is working with the Horton family now! But my dad is working on some photograph, and he says it’ll be restored in the next couple of days, so he insisted that my brother wait until the photograph is fixed before coming over.”

Keira laughed and asked, “Restoring an old photograph?”

Rebecca nodded. “Yeah, apparently it’s one from twenty or thirty years ago… Dad, what’s that photo you’re having my brother restore, exactly?”

Mr. Allen smiled as he looked at Keira and Mrs. Olsen, “That photo has some connection to Mrs. Olsen. Back in Clance, I met Lady South a few times, and we happened to take a group picture once.”

Hearing this, Mrs. Olsen’s eyes lit up, “My mother?

Once that photo is restored, you must show it to me!”

Mr. Allen was taken aback. “Don’t you have any photos of Lady South at your place?”

Mrs. Olsen shook her head and sighed, “Before I came to Oceanion, there was a sudden fire at home that

burned all our photos…”

Π

Her gaze had a touch of nostalgia, “Over the years, my health has been deteriorating, and I’ve often been ill. It’s been more than twenty years now; I’ve long forgotten what my mother looked like…”

Upon hearing this, Mr. Allen sighed and asked, “I heard about it back then and felt so sorry for you. But how did Lady South pass away? She was only in her forties, wasn’t she? In the prime of her life…”

That’s when Keira realized Mrs. Olsen hadn’t been in

touch with Clance for so many years because her mother had passed away.

She pricked up her ears just to see Mrs. Olsen muster a weak smile. “Mother died in an accident.”

She didn’t seem to want to elaborate.

Recognizing her reluctance, Mr. Allen immediately

stopped prying and said, “Once the photo is restored, I’ll be sure to show it to both you and Miss Olsen!”

Mrs. Olsen paused slightly, then nodded.

Keira, however, was a bit puzzled.

Why would Mr. Allen want to show the photo to her, out of all things?

But she didn’t ask further because she was indeed very curious about the kind of person who could beget someone of Mrs. Olsen’s stature… she wondered what sort of person Lady South had been.

With that topic concluded, Mr. and Mrs. Allen saw that the crowd around old Mrs. Horton had dispersed, so they said, “Rebecca, let’s go and greet the old lady first.”

It was a matter of etiquette.

Although Rebecca was reluctant to leave Keira, she had no choice but to follow Mr. and Mrs. Allen.

As the two walked away, people passed by Keira and Mrs. Olsen, discussing as they went.

“I heard that Mr. Horton was finally bringing out that well-protected wife of his for everyone to see today!”

“I’m really curious about who Mrs. Horton is…”

“Did you hear? Lately, it seems Mr. Horton has kept a mistress. It looks like pictures were taken, and the servants at the Horton family manor all know about it. Mrs. Horton must have come back on purpose after finding out about it…”

After the two moved on, Mrs. Olsen looked worriedly at Keira, “Keira, I’m not feeling well; how about you

take me home?”

Keira couldn’t help but laugh and cry at the same time.

She knew this was an excuse Mrs. Olsen had come up with to help her avoid this gathering.

Supporting Mrs. Olsen by the arm, Keira said, “Mrs. Olsen, let me take you to see something.”

“What is it?”

“My marriage certificate.”
