My Accidental Husband is a Billionaire Novel Chapter 156

156 A Slap in the Face

Once the marriage certificate photo was revealed, the scene erupted into an uproar.

Lewis scanned the crowd with a contemptuous smile. “Surely none of you are still questioning the

authenticity of this marriage certificate, are you? Do I need to take each of you to the courthouse to verify

it?”

Everyone present was dumbfounded.

Isla’s pupils shrank violently as she looked at Keira in disbelief.

How could this be… How could it be?!

Wasn’t Keira only recently married? How could it be from two years ago?

But she knew the marriage certificate must be real.

With so many reporters present, Lewis wouldn’t have forged a document…

Jake’s entire face had turned deathly pale.

Keira was indeed married to his uncle… She had been

his aunt all along!

Against others, Jake could contend or use some

forceful measures, but it was Jake’s nature to fear

Lewis!

Oliver and Nathan’s faces darkened, and both were somewhat disappointed.

They exchanged a glance, their complexions looking

extremely ugly.

They had thought that they could use this event to topple Lewis, but they hadn’t expected things turn out

to be like this!

Seeing the marriage certificate, Keira arched an eyebrow.

She suddenly understood why Lewis was late! He had been fishing!

The curtain was originally under the control of the first branch of the family; it was meant to display private photos, but now it showed the marriage certificate, indicating Lewis had known it all along.

But Lewis took advantage of the situation, slapping the first branch’s face!

This huge blunder must have caused those who

followed the first branch to waver.

As she mused, Mrs. Olsen was also staring at the marriage certificate in shock!!

Mrs. Olsen had never expected such an outcome and looked at Keira with an indescribable expression. “When you kept asking me to look at the marriage certificate, was this what you meant?”

Keira lowered her gaze, obviously hurt.

This was the first time in her life that Mrs. Olsen hadn’t

believed her…

Keira nodded, “Yes.”

“I…”

Mrs. Olsen attempted to explain something, but then suddenly found herself unable to speak.

She hadn’t anticipated this.

Facing Keira, a sense of guilt surged in her chest.

Several times, Keira tried to explain, but she and Isla interrupted Keira. Keira handed the marriage certificate to her to see, but she didn’t look…

As she shared a speechless moment with Keira, a shocked outcry burst from the nearby classmates’ group, “How is this possible? Keira, an illegitimate daughter, actually married Mr. Horton?!”

It was Erin’s sharp voice.

Her face was one of shock, and she could no longer maintain her composure. Trembling, she pointed to the screen. “This must be fake! How could Keira be

worthy of this marriage?!”

The students around her looked at her as if she were a

fool.

It seemed that being fired from the company and unable to find a job in Oceanion hadn’t taught her any

lesson…

Keira’s eyes chilled as she was about to speak, but Tom already took a step forward, “Miss Olsen… oh, no, Mrs. Horton is the hostess of the Horton family. How can you insult her like this? Do you look down on the Horton family?”

Erin was stunned, swallowing hard.

The black-clothed bodyguards following Tom were all

tall and hurly. Any one of them individually was

11:30

156 A Slap in the Face

enough to strike terror in one’s heart.

It was only then that she seemed to realize just what kind of person she had offended.

She collapsed on the ground in an instant, her eyes darting to Lewis. “Mr. Horton, I-I’m sorry. I’ll never dare again…”

Lewis didn’t speak.

However, Tom understood his boss’s intent and

laughed, “Don’t you know whom you’ve offended?”

That statement made Erin turn sharply toward Keira.

Resentment flashed in her eyes.

Back in college, Keira kept to herself and wasn’t as sociable with her classmates as Erin… But now….

Their statuses were worlds apart!

In the face of absolute strength, Erin had to bow h head. “Keira, I slandered you, I’m sorry! Please let m off! I swear I’ll never gossip about you again. Please allow me to find a job; I don’t want to leave

Oceanion…”

Keira lowered her gaze, for she was never one for

saintly compassion, and said indifferently, “When one

errs, a price must be paid. Tom, I don’t wish to see her at the banquet any longer.”

“Yes, Mrs. Horton.”

A wave of Tom’s hand summoned a bodyguard, who grabbed Erin by the arm and dragged her out.

Although Charles and other classmates felt it was a bit cruel, they remembered the things Erin had done to

Keira and remained silent.

Isla clenched her fists tightly.

At this moment, Keira was absolutely stealing the

show!

Keira was actually the hostess of the Horton family… Didn’t that mean she would be above Isla in the futu

Isla had worked hard to marry Jake, but Keira simply turned around and became Lewis’s wife…

Suddenly, Isla said, “Keira, Erin was just being a busybody and said a few words. Why go so far? If this gets out, it’ll only make the hostess of the Horton family seem petty for bickering over such trifles!”

“Is that so?”

Keira’s gaze grew sharp as she challenged Isla. “So you think anyone can insult the hostess of the Horton family without paying any price? In your eyes, is the dignity of the Horton family so unimportant?”

Isla wanted to retort, but Lewis said indifferently, “Is this how you speak to your elders? If you’re resentful and dare to backtalk, you should face family discipline!”

Isla was speechless.

She and Jake looked at Keira sharply, only now realizing that she was no longer that illegitimate daughter. She now had someone backing her up!

It wasn’t long before Erin was gagged and dragged out.

The entire banquet hall fell silent.

After a moment, Nathan suddenly said, “Why has old Mrs. Horton taken so long in the restroom? Someone should go find her quickly; today is her birthday banquet…”

As soon as these words came out, someone was about to fetch her, but Lewis suddenly spoke again. “There’s

no rush. Let’s deal with the matters at hand first

before letting Grandma come out, to avoid any agitation from this commotion.”

Nathan frowned. “What else is there to take care of?

Hasn’t everything been clarified? Since it was a misunderstanding, clearing it up is enough.”

No sooner had he finished than the butler appeared at the door with two policemen, “We received a report of illegal activity here!”

Nathan frowned immediately. “No one here called the

police…”

“I did,” came the calm reply.

Lewis continued. “My wife and I had our private photos suddenly made public. Someone violated our right to privacy!”

At this revelation, Isla and Jake’s expressions changed dramatically!

They glanced at each other, nervously clutching the

fabric of their clothes.

When they planned the scandal, they were only thinking of dragging Lewis’s reputation through the

11:8

156 A Slap in the Face

mud without considering that he would take it to the lengths of involving the police!

Oliver immediately took a step forward. “It’s a misunderstanding, all a misunderstanding. It must have been a servant who accidentally triggered it. Lewis, such things are without evidence. There’s no need for the police to have come all this way for nothing, right?”

Isla instantly breathed a sigh of relief.

Indeed… they had avoided the cameras when orchestrating the affair. As long as they denied everything, they would be fine!

But the next moment, they heard Lewis say coolly, “Who says I don’t have evidence?”
