Submitting To My Ex-Wife by Daisy Woods Chapter 37

Chapter 37

Pearl had always followed the principle of giving others a lesson by using her fists but not

her tongue.

With her own cousin, she could still spare some effort to teach a lesson by moralizing. However, with outsiders, she didn’t even bother lifting a finger, fearing it might hurt her

hand.

She was in a foul mood, and anyone who provoked her in this state shouldn’t expect politeness from her.

The venue was filled with a cacophony of music and chatter, and initially, no one noticed the commotion in the corner. However, this group of gossipy ladies, who seemingly never experienced this kind of thing, was utterly shocked by what they witnessed, and they couldn’t stop screaming.

Thanks to them, Pearl, who had always kept a low profile, swiftly became the center of attention. All eyes were now on her, and people had gathered around her.

The lady splashed with wine and hit in the head was the only one not screaming. She was nearly speechless but choked out. “Who are you?”

Those invited to the banquet were wealthy or prominent, including at least a few B–list celebrities. This lady was just a B–list actress who had spent over a decade in the

entertainment industry and had been making a name for herself lately. Therefore, she was adept at reading people.

Although she was terrified, a quick glance at Pearl’s attire, the high–fashion gown, and the emerald pendant around her neck revealed that they were possessions she could only dream of having in a lifetime of acting. Her confidence deflated instantly.

“You don’t even recognize me yet dared to badmouth me behind my back. Now I wonder if your ignorance makes you fearless or just that you truly have the courage of a lion?”

Pearl showed some restraint this time as she smashed her glass against the woman’s head, causing glass shards to scatter, which might look scary but didn’t harm that woman physically.

Chapter 37

Pearl had always been lenient with women.

The woman’s brain raced, and she suddenly blurted out. “You’re Miss Pearl, aren’t you?”

As soon as she mentioned the name, the onlookers erupted in a chorus of whispers, their gaze shifting between the familiar name they’d heard countless times and the person standing before them. At that moment, they all thought the same thing.

It turned out that she was Miss Pearl from the Woolery family.

She appeared even more stunning than the legendary tales had described.

The young actress was surrounded by a group of her friends. They were all lesser–known young actresses in the entertainment industry. Usually, they would get a chance to talk to Tina, which made them think they knew a lot about the Woolery family. However, Pearl from the Woolery family was a legendary figure for these people.

The Woolery Group had once been a dominant force in Nanston. However, it declined in recent years, teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. Therefore, some people thought its heir had nothing to be afraid of.

A young internet celebrity, usually seen close to Tina, stepped forward and confronted Pearl. “Who do you think you are to hit her? This is an evening party organized by Zero Hour. How do you dare to create a scene here? Are you not afraid of offending the Law family? I happen to be friends with Hubert from the Law family. I can ask him to call security to escort you out.”

Though this young internet celebrity wasn’t tall, she seemed to have a commanding

presence.

Her words prompted an immediate response from the group of sisters around her, all chiming in, “That’s right! Pouring wine on someone without a word? Miss Pearl, even if you’re from the Woolery family, how could you be so rude?”

At that moment, it seemed like they were about to teach Pearl a lesson together.

Marc and Lucas walked out backstage and immediately noticed what was happening. They heard the women behind them gossiping, so when Pearl went forward to hit that woman, they didn’t stop her, but now, when they saw Pearl being surrounded by a group of

Chapter 37

people, they decided to intervene.

They prepared to step forward. However, at that time, Pearl didn’t even glance at those women, and she swiftly took two glasses of wine from a waiter’s tray and splashed them directly at the chattering women. It seemed that she was determined to be “rude.”

Pearl maintained her composure after drenching them in wine, staring coldly at them with an air of nobility and pride.

It was a look that said, “I’ve just splashed you, and what are you going to do about it?”

“What’s happening here? What’s going on?”

Hubert and Elaine, socializing elsewhere, heard the commotion and rushed over. Hubert parted the crowd to find Pearl in the center of the chaos. His heart raced until he saw that she was unharmed.

“Hubert,” the young internet celebrity called out to Hubert as if she had found some support in him while she was about to lean on him in tears.

Hubert quickly stopped her, saying, “Oh, please, stay back. You’re all dirty.”

The young internet celebrity wore a white dress that evening, but it was now splattered with wine, making her look quite terrifying, like she had been splashed with blood.

She put on a pitiful look, pretending to be a victim, and pointed at Pearl, complaining, “It’s all because of this woman. We were just chatting, and she came over and splashed wine on us without saying a word! Hubert, Ms. Law, her causing trouble here is clearly disrespectful to you. Please, hurry up and escort her out!”

Marc approached, took a hot towel from the small bamboo basket carried by a waiter, and handed it to Pearl, saying, “Your hands are dirty. Wipe them.“.

Pearl’s hands were stained with the wine, feeling sticky. Faced with Marc’s offer of the hot towel, she didn’t hesitate and accepted it. She carefully wiped her hands, and her slender hands appeared glistening and almost radiant in the light.

As Marc handed her the hot towel and Pearl wiped her hands, the situation that had been

tense and noisy a moment ago inexplicably fell silent for a few seconds.

Not far away, Lucas took a sip of the wine, a faint smile playing on his lips. He watched Marc and Pearl, who seemed to have an astonishing tacit understanding of driving people

crazy.

The B–list actress a

the internet celebrity, who had been causing trouble, were nearly pissed off by the interaction between Marc and Pearl.

“Hubert,” the internet celebrity continued to pout and rant.

Her pretentious voice frayed Hubert’s nerves, and he was gooseflesh all over.

Pearl finished wiping her hands and glanced at Hubert with a playful smile, “Hubert, when did you get yourself a girlfriend and not introduce her to me? If I had known she was your

future wife, I would’ve been more courteous to he

Hearing Pearl’s teasing words, Hubert froze for a moment. The mere pretentious voice of that internet celebrity was already enough to overwhelm him. When he heard what Pearl said, especially the words “future wife,” it immediately made his hair stand on end.

“Don’t talk nonsense. I don’t even know her!”

“Is that so?”

Pearl replied with a cold smile. “I heard her affectionately calling you ‘Hubert‘ repeatedly and mentioning that she’d asked you to get me out of here.”

She turned to Elaine, saying, “I’m sorry, Elaine, but I don’t want to spoil your party any further. I should leave now and make amends with the Law family another time.”

Pearl had no intention of staying any longer and started to walk away, but Elaine stopped

her.

Elaine gave Hubert a hard kick and stared at him, asking, “What’s happening here?”

Feeling unjustly accused, Hubert said, “I really don’t know her!”

That internet celebrity was so embarrassed and was about to approach Hubert again, but Hubert directly signaled the security guards to escort those women out of the venue. These women had the audacity to cause a disturbance in his place and bully his friend. They had crossed a line!

Chapter 37

The few young women splashed by the wine hadn’t realized what had just happened until they found themselves being kicked out of the hotel.

Why were they being kicked out instead of Pearl?
