When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 6

Chapter 6

Ella’s face contorted with fury as she snapped at Gina. “Shut your trap, or I’ll shut it for you! Olivia getting better so quickly is just her luck!”

“Our family would have been ruined without Olivia, our lucky star. It’s your bad mojo that got the old house burned down!” James piled on.

“We should have never let a disaster like you in. Noah stirred the pot further.

“You’ve been living in luxury on our dime, and this is how you thank us?” They continued their tirade.

Gina laughed coldly. “Would you even give me the time of day if it wasn’t for that 20% share? Besides, you’ve got the shares,

not me.”

Before passing away, Evelyn Miller, Gina’s grandma willed that the lost Miller bloodline be found to inherit her 20% stake in the Miller Group. That share, meant for Gina, was quickly pocketed by the family, without so much as a peep.

Ella, defensive, lashed out, “You really think you deserve the shares? Don’t expect a single penny from us, you ungrateful

wretch.

Gina was unfazed, disinterested in anything the Miller family had.

Tired of their nonsense, she threw an agreement on the table

James glanced at it and saw “Severance Agreement.”

“Is she really cutting ties with us?‘ he wondered in disbelief.

The Millers looked at each other, silently agreeing it was probably for the best.

Olivia barely suppressed a smirk, conjuring up sad thoughts to hide her glee.

“Seriously, Gina! You’re the real Miller here. Hate me, not them. How can you make things right with Mom and the brothers? I hate seeing us like this. If it’ll fix things, I’ll do whatever it takes. After all, everything I have should’ve been yours.” Olivia’s voice broke as she spoke.

Gina watched Olivia’s act, barely holding back a laugh/Willing to sacrifice anything, huh?”

Olivia nodded vigorously.

Cina smirked coldly. “Then die.”

If Olivia hadn’t called her back to the Miller family with fake concern, Gina wouldn’t have returned or encountered the fire. The timing of the fire, right after Olivia left, made her involvement undeniable.

You want me dead, and I am not about to show mercy, Gina thought inwardly.

Pretending to be shocked, Olivia cried, “So you really do hate me.”

Yeah, so why are you still standing? Co ahead, diel” Gina’s laugh was cold.

Tears streaming, Olivia grabbed a wine glass, smashed it, and picked up a shard to slash her wrist. “If my death brings you back to the family, I’ll do it? She tightened her grip, blood seeping out.

The brothers and Ella were dumbfounded by Olivia’s theatrics, which made Gina seem even more intimidating.

Sure, Olivia wouldn’t do it. Gina stepped forward, grabbed her hand, and pressed the shard to her neck. “Cut here, and it’ll be quick.”

Olivia was petrified, not expecting Gina to go through with it. Blood trickled down her neck.

Ella, regaining her senses, screamed, “You’re insane!” Grabbing a bottle, she prepared to strike Cina.

James and Noah grabbed chairs, ready to jump in.

“Touch Olivia and you’re dead!” James roared.

“Step closer, and I slit her throat. Wanna see who is faster?” Gina challenged, her voice ice–cold.

“Piece of shit!” Ella cursed, rage boiling but not daring to move.

Gina pressed the shard a bit deeper, making Olivia’s knees buckle. She knelt, and Gina finally let go.

In a whirlwind of panic, Ella darted forward, pulling Olivia into a protective hug, while James and Noah quickly positioned themselves as Olivia’s shield.

“Olivia, honey, are you alright?” Ella’s voice was laden with worry.

Olivia, clutching her neck, felt a sharp sting. She revealed a bloodied hand, looking pitifully wronged but internally ranting. Is this bitch crazy? Or did she suddenly get bold because she’s got a big shot backing her?‘

Tears welling up, Olivia turned to Ella with a look of utter distress. Mom, I’m fine. As long as Gina calms down, that’s all that

matters.

Ella, visibly infuriated, hissed. “Gina, you’ve crossed the line this time.”

She nodded at James and Noah, signaling them to teach Gina a lesson. Gina, on the other hand, coolly observed them, loosening her wrists in anticipation.

James, visibly intimidated, gulped nervously. The thought of going toe–to–toe with Gina sent chills down his spine.

Noah glanced at James, deciding to hold back if James wasn’t making a move.

James, in a moment of bravado, whipped out his phone, intending to call for backup from downstairs. “You think you can just walk out without apologizing? Think again!” he thundered.

Gina, unfazed, stared them down, her voice icy. “Touch me, and Miller Jewels crashes and burns by tomorrow.”

“What the hell are you on about?” James shot back, his anger peaking.

Gina met his gaze coolly. “Olivia’s Wish collection? My designs, her name. Talk about copyright infringement. Wonder how Jong Miller Jewels can keep up its act once this scandal breaks.”

James felt his heart skip, though he tried to mask it with disdain. “As if you could pull that off

“Oh, you want to put it to the test? Gina faunted, a cold smirk playing on her lips.

With the company’s lifeline at stake and despite her reluctance, Ella said. “What’s your demand?”

“Pull the Wish collection permanently and return every penny made from it to me. Consider it your penance for plagiarism, Gina stated sharply.

家77%止

The total sales amounted to a staggering 600 million dollars. Gina had no desire for the Miller family’s money, but this amount rightfully belonged to her.

After the Wish collection’s success, Miller Jewels was rolling in dough, propelling the Millers to the pinnacle of wealth. Yet, they blatantly denied Gina’s role in it all, crediting Olivia instead and attributing their windfall to her so–called luck.

“You’ve got some balls.” James exploded, incredulous and enraged.
