When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 26

Chapter 26

Ella put a smile on. “First, thanks for helping us out with Phillip’s medicine fees. However, James had a car accident and wants to receive better treatment at Prover Hospital. As you know, it’s tough to get admission there, so I’d like to ask for your help.

Abbie and Clinton exchanged a look.

“What fees?” Abbie looked puzzled. They didn’t care about Phillip and weren’t concerned.

Ella was also confused. “Didn’t you find out Phillip was also hospitalized and helped pay the bills?”

That’s impossible. We are wealthy but not crazy Abbie recovered from her shock and clarified, “We can’t help. Neil was admitted through the usual process.”

Ella was shocked. If it wasn’t them, who was it?

Abbie’s meaning was clear. They wouldn’t help.

Ella could only change the topic. When they spoke about the engagement party, Ella asked, “The party is coming up. Should we send out the invitations?”

Without Clinton and Abbie’s consent, they couldn’t send them out.

Abbie frowned. “What’s the rush?”

Seeing this. Ella said. “Mrs. Jackson, Olivia recently won first in the national college jewelry design competition.”

“First? The results haven’t been announced yet, right?” Abbie asked.

“The news has spread. It’ll be announced the day after tomorrow, Ella added. She wanted Abbie and Clinton to know Olivia was outstanding. If Ethan were engaged to Gina, they’d probably cancel the engagement,

On account of the present, Abbie spoke politely, “First prize. That’s good. Any career plans, Olivia?”

Noah answered, “She’ll join Miller Jewels as the design director after graduation. The Wish collection she designed before sold like hotcakes. She’s talented.” Noah once more shamelessly credited Olivia again.

Abbie’s expression softened. She had heard about that. “Is that what you think, Olivia?”

Olivia nodded. “I’ll work with Noah to make Miller Jewels bigger and better.”

Abbie asked, “Don’t you think you should get some experience elsewhere first? If you get comfy just because you’ve done something in your family’s company, isn’t it arrogant?

Olivia was awkward. Was Abbie messing with her?

Though annoyed, Ella still smiled. “Any advice for Olivia, Mrs. Jackson?”

“If you can enter Quaria and make a name for yourself, that’s be something. Abbie said.

Olivia resisted the urge to roll her eyes. Working for her family was comfortable. Was Abbie trying to make things difficult for her? Olivia smiled. “Thanks, Abbie. I’ll remember it.”

“Enough talk. Let’s eat,” Clinton invited.

The Miller family felt quite aggrieved during the meal, but fortunately, Clinton and Abbie agreed to send out the engagement invitations.

After finishing the meal, Olivia went to the restroom. When she came out, she heard a familiar voice. “Yes. Hurry up. Take it out of the safe and bring it here,”

Olivia followed the sound and saw Neil. Neil was here but didn’t drop by. Olivia felt upset.

Neil turned and saw Olivia. His expression didn’t change.

Olivia greeted, “Mr. Jackson.”

Neil acknowledged indifferently.

Olivia tried to strike up a conversation. She noticed the pearl ring on Neil’s finger and remarked, “Mr. Jackson, your ring is beautiful. Is it from Quaria’s collector’s series?”

Neil didn’t know jewelry. Hearing that, he knew Gina had spent a lot on it. Gina was so thoughtful. She probably spent the entire 14 million dollars he paid her on it. But Gina was a student. She didn’t need to buy something so expensive.

“I think it’s good too.” Neil agreed.

“Did you buy it yourself, Mr. Jackson? What a good eye.” Olivia praised, desperately trying to leave a good impression on

him.

“Gina bought it for me as a birthday gift, Neil told her.

Olivia’s heart skipped a beat. “My sister, Gina?”

Neil nodded. “Yes”

Olivia stiffened. Why was Neil so fond of Gina? While she was still enduring Abbie and Clinton’s sarcastic remarks, Gina hau already won over Neil. Olivia was furious.

Olivia awkwardly said, “I thought the medicine last time was her birthday present to you…Gina didn’t study medicine. She’s from the countryside and might know some old–school remedies. If you’re not feeling well, it’s better to consult a real doctor, Mr. Jackson. My sister means well, but your health comes first. Who knows what’s in that medicine? It could do more harm than good…” She let her voice trail off meaningfully.

Olivia had no clue why Cina would turn into Neil’s honored guest.

Neil frowned. He knew what Olivia was implying. He asked coldly, “Do you know medicine?”

Olivia was stunned. “I–I don’t.”

Neil barked, “If you don’t, don’t speak nonsense. Gina had saved Neil so Neil wouldn’t question Gina’s skills.

With that, Neil left.

Olivia realized her mistake. She wanted to salvage the situation. Clenching her hands, Olivia hurriedly caught up to him. “Mr. Jackson…”
