The Brilliant Mrs. Windsor Chapter 45

Chapter 45: Fallen on Hard Times Now?

Isabella had no interest in being the lady of Ascot Group, especially disliking Alexander’s high and mighty attitude. If she had to work under him in the future, wouldn’t

she have to face that sullen

expression all day?

Right now, she just wanted to hurry up and cure the old master’s illness, then completely rid herself of

Alexander.

Of course, if she could also give that bastard a good thrashing and vent the anger of the orphanage kids, all the better.

“Mr. Alexander, I agreed to treat your father, but I’m not your slave. You can’t restrict my freedom…”

Before she could finish, there was a

crisp sound. The coffee cup in Alexander’s hand had shattered.

Aunt Audrey shuddered and quickly stepped forward to clean up.

Isabella took a deep breath. She knew it was pointless to reason with this man. He was domineering to the point of being paranoid, and no one could defy him.

“Rest well today. Tomorrow, I don’t want to hear you say such things

again.”

Alexander’s voice was casual, but anyone could hear the raging undercurrent.

He got up and left.

“Ms. Sterling, the young master has this kind of temper, but he’s not a bad person at heart.”

Aunt Audrey consoled Isabella while. sweeping up the mess at Alexander’s

seat.

Isabella snorted. Harborlight

Sanctuary was about to be destroyed

at this man’s hands. How was he not

bad?

Fuming, she returned to her room just as her phone rang with a

message.

The contact was “Little Lamb” with a

derpy Shiba Inu avatar.

“Can you still make it to the

competition in two days?”

This person was Isabella’s old gaming buddy. They had even formed a team and participated in quite a few online competitions.

Slender fingers rapidly tapped out a message on the screen and sent it.

“Can’t go. A bastard is clinging to me like a booger I can’t shake off.”

If Alexander knew he had been reduced to a disgusting booger in

this woman’s words, he would throw her off the building without

hesitation.

The reply came swiftly.

“Want me to send someone to beat

him up for you? If once isn’t enough,

they can beat him a few more times

until he behaves.”

Isabella couldn’t help but chuckle at

that.

“No need. You can’t afford to offend this guy. He’s a rich second

generation, no wait, more like third

generation.”

Isabella had never met Alexander’s

parents, so she naturally assumed he didn’t have any. After all, with a

bastard like him, his parents were probably long dead from anger.

On the other end, Ashton Chase’s

lips curled as he drained his glass of

red wine.

“Second generation rich? Very wealthy?”

“Yup, loaded.”

Oho, Ashton’s eyes flashed. In

Riverdale, the Chase family could at

least rank among the top four. Aside

from Alexander, no one dared to act

like a rich second generation in front

of him.

“Summer Stream” was their team’s

main force. Without her, they were

sure to lose this competition.

“Give me an address. I’ll arrange for

someone to beat up that booger

tomorrow.”

A moment later, the reply came.

“I’ll find a way to play in this competition. You don’t need to worry about the rest.”

Ashton raised an eyebrow and sent. back, “If anything comes up, just

holler. We’re bros, no need for

courtesy.”

Setting his phone aside, he looked at the frowning servant nearby.

“Young master, using such a name and avatar is beneath your status.”

Ashton snorted coldly, lounging lazily on the sofa.

“What do you know? Girls these days

love this cutesy style.”

The servant’s mouth twitched.

Where was the cute in that…

If one didn’t know the young master’s identity and only saw that

name and avatar, they would

definitely assume he was some nerdy loser.

Ascot Group was enormous in scale and naturally had a lot of business to attend to. Alexander didn’t return home that day, which was nothing new for the Windsor staff.

Isabella secretly breathed a sigh of relief and slept soundly through the night.

Early the next morning, as soon as she came downstairs, she saw Alexander already sitting there.

Although he had only returned in the middle of the night, there was no trace of fatigue on his face. Isabella even began to doubt if he was a living, flesh and blood human.

As soon as Alexander looked up, Isabella spoke first.

“I’ll go to the company with you.”

Rather than clashing head–on with this man, it was better to go along with him for now.

Isabella had pondered long into the night. This was Alexander’s turf after

all. She couldn’t butt heads with him

directly.

Moreover, if she wanted to destroy him, she first had to gain his trust. Once she infiltrated Ascot Group,

she could slowly cause trouble from

within.

Alexander hadn’t expected her to agree so readily today. He sized her up coldly, then stood.

Isabella obediently followed, like a pet trying to please its master.

Alexander stepped into the car. As

Isabella was about to get in…

Bang-

The car door suddenly slammed shut. If she hadn’t reacted in time,

her high–bridged nose would have been smashed.

Damn Alexander!

“Don’t be late.”

Alexander’s cool voice came from

inside the car.

Isabella was about to let loose a

string of curses when the car drove off, leaving her in the dust.

She stood there awkwardly, like a statue, utterly humiliated. Curses

were on the tip of her tongue, but

there was no one to vent them on. It

was like punching cotton – not

painful, but incredibly frustrating.

This was Lorchester’s most upscale neighborhood for the wealthy. Each

Isabella glanced angrily at her

phone. There were only twenty

minutes left until work started. If she

was late, Alexander would certainly use it as an excuse to rage at her again.

“Well, well, if it isn’t Isabella. Kicked out of the Sterling family and fallen on such hard times now?”

A mocking laugh reached her ears. Turning, Isabella saw a Maserati slow down on her left, keeping pace with

her.

In the window, Charlotte’s face still

wore that harmless smile.

It had to be said, Isabella’s current appearance indeed invited

speculation. Especially compared to the glamorous, regal princess–like Charlotte, she looked like a down–and–out beggar, lowly as dust.

Isabella had no intention of
