When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 23

Chapter 23

Jasmine became more cautious at the thought of the Jackson family. After all, she wanted to marry into that family. If this bitch was connected to them, Jasmine couldn’t afford to offend her.

Jasmine ground her teeth resentfully. She had never been treated so badly.

The manager asked, “Miss? Are you apologizing or would you like to call the police?”

Jasmine forced out, “Apologize.” She turned to Gina. “I’m sorry. Is that okay?”

Gina stated coldly, “It’s insincere. I won’t accept it.”

Jasntine was close to losing it. What more did she want? Jasmine breathed in deeply and reined in her temper. “I’m sorry.”

Gina raised a brow. “Continue. You can stop when you mean it.”

Jasmine was dumbfounded. Was she messing with her? She clenched her hands tightly and repeated it until her throat felt like it was on fire.

Eventually, Gina spoke. “That’s enough. She didn’t want to waste time on Jasmine. “Remember to pick up your money. It’s not right to litter.

Gina left. The manager followed Cina.

Jasmine was furious. Her mood was ruined and she was no longer in the mood to shop. Jasmine was also angry with the snobbish manager. When I find out who the bitch is, I’d crush her after I marry Gabriel, she thought.

Jasmine picked up the money on the ground. Thankfully, no one was around to see how pathetic she was. Jasmine

revenge.

As Jasmine left Quaria, her mother, Hannah Bush, called “Honey, how’s your shopping?”

Jasmine stomped her foot and could barely speak.

Hannah thought Jasmine was upset about getting second in the competition. She consoled, “Honey, second is excellent too. Besides, I think your work is the best. The work that came in first was trash. The judges must be blind. Anyway, I heard she was Olivia Miller. Her family was nothing compared to ours. She’s just lucky.”

Jasmine was quite happy with being second but after just now and what her mother said, her mood plummeted. Why was she second to someone inferior?

‘Hold on. Did Mum call her Olivia Miller? Jasmine seemed to recall the manager calling that bitch “Miss Miller. Could it be so coincidental?

Jasmine frowned. “Mum, do you know anything about her?”

“Her? She’s also an Arts major at Trowell University like you. What’s wrong, honey? Hannah asked.

Jasmine asked tentatively, “Is she related to the Jackson family?”

Hannah didn’t ask but she snorted. “She’s engaged to them. It went back a few generations.”

Jasmine was almost sure that the woman she just encountered was Olivia. How could she be engaged to the Jackson family? Jasmine was furious and worried. “Who is she engaged to?”

Hannah replied, “Ethan.”

Jasmine was relieved. As long as it wasn’t Gabriel. That bitch wasn’t worthy of Gabriel anyway.

Flames lit in Jasmine’s eyes. ‘Olivia? Just you wait!

Olivia sneezed twice inside the Mercedes, making Ella nervous. “What’s wrong? Did you catch a flu?”

Olivia shook her head. “No, Mum. My nose just itches.”

Ella was relieved. She was going to Grand Restaurant with Noah and Olivia to meet Ethan’s parents and Neil. Ella was anxious. After all, she was asking them for a favor. Ella didn’t feel good about having to do so.

It was all Gina’s fault for what happened.

At the same time, Gina arrived at Grand Restaurant. She got out of the taxi and saw Gabriel waiting at the entrance. “Have you been waiting long?” Gina asked.

Gabriel replied, “No.”

David answered, “Half an hour.”

Gabriel shot David a glance. David made a gesture to zip his mouth.

Gina looked at the time. She wasn’t late. “Thanks for waiting,‘ she said politely.

“It’s nothing.” Gabriel smiled.

David had never seen Gabriel smile so much before. Gina only needed to stand there and Gabriel would be happy. Was this… love? David never thought Gabriel would find a girlfriend before him. “Would I be the only bachelor left?’ The thought saddened David.

Gabriel noticed the small delicate gift box in Gina’s hand. “What’s this?” He looked expectantly at her.

Gina replied calmly, “It’s Grandpa Neil’s birthday gift.“/

Gabriel’s dark eyes filled with disappointment. He thought it was for him. “Will you give me a gift on my birthday?” Gabriel asked suddenly.

Gina wondered, ‘Am I mistaken? Is Gabriel jealous?‘ Gina didn’t like to give presents or receive them. She found it troublesome. Besides Ruby, Neil was the second person to receive a present from her. She had considered giving the Miller family birthday gifts, but they never told her their birthdays.

Since Gabriel asked, it didn’t seem nice to reject him. After all, he had helped her, even though she didn’t ask. Gina pursed her lips. “Yes.”
