worth over a million.”

Evelyn tossed the car keys on the

table, certain she would get them

back later.

“My family recently developed a new apartment complex. I’ll put up

one of the units.”

Confident of Isabella’s impending loss, they had no qualms about

raising the stakes higher and higher.

Isabella’s gaze settled on Charlotte’s

face, the corners of her mouth

curling.

“Sister, your turn.”

Charlotte was unnerved by that

smile, a vague sense of unease

stirring. But it vanished in an instant.

There was no way this woman could

win!

She would use this chance to drive

this eyesore out of the Sterling family for good!

“Since you’re playing for such high stakes, sister, I must show my sincerity too. On my birthday last year, our parents gifted me some company shares. I’ll wager five percent.”

The others gasped. Charlotte was betting far too much!

Though the Sterlings were in dire straits, even five percent of their publicly traded shares amounted to a

hefty sum.

at her hatred for Isabella.

Everyone fawned over Charlotte, but deep down, she was jealous of

How dare this adopted orphan outshine her in both studies and looks?!

So she had taken a break from

school to act, and never let their

parents buy Isabella new clothes.

Most infuriating of all, at the last engagement party, Alexander had whisked Isabella away for three whole days, even taking her to Windsor Manor.

Hall, let alone been invited to

Windsor Manor!

This woman must be trying to

seduce Alexander. She would not

tolerate any potential rivals.

Isabella observed her calmly, then

The Sterling Corporation had been listed for years. Apart from the shares traded on the exchange, the

Sterlings held forty–five percent. After much wheedling, Charlotte had convinced Edward to transfer ten percent to her when she came of age. Even Evelyn was unaware of

this.

“No way!”

Charlotte refused outright. Father

She wouldn’t give it up!

Isabella’s eyes flashed. She decided

to fan the flames.

“By the way, I forgot to mention – I’m visiting Windsor Manor again in a few days. Aren’t you worried Alexander and I might end up

together, sister? Or are you saying

he’s not worth as much as that ten percent of Sterling shares?”

Though detestable, Alexander was the perfect bait to rile Charlotte up.
