When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 72

Chapter 72

Gina stood still and said indifferently, “It’s okay, I know Ethan.”

Abbi e tapped her head. “I can’t believe I forgot,” she said. “Since you are already here for his engagement party, both of you must know each other. You both are friends? That’s even better!”

She glanced at the handbag Gina was carrying. She didn’t notice it just now, but now she realized that it was a Hossen handbag.

She thought. It seems that her family is quite well-off. Next, I’ve got to subtly ask and find out if this young lady is an only child. She mustn’t be like Olivia, who has six brothers at home! It seems that this young lady…”

Ethan had walked up to them.

“Mom, you called me…” he said. At the same time, he saw Gina, wondering why she was here.

Ethan inexplicably felt a little guilty.

“I received an invitation.” Gina said with a faint smile. “Someone has repeatedly reminded me that I must attend. How can I be absent?”

“Who invited you?” Ethan asked. He was stunned.

Abbi e still hadn’t figured out the situation.

She gave Ethan a hearty pat on the back and said, “You rascal. Why didn’t you say so earlier that you know Neil’s savior?”

“What?” Ethan said. “She is Grandpa’s savior?”

Ethan had a sudden realization, thinking, ‘No wonder Grandpa sides with her a lot.

“You didn’t know?” Abb ie said.

She was also a little surprised. After exchanging surprised glances with Ethan for a moment, she said, “Alright. Alright. It’s good that you two know each other. Interact more in the future!”

“Mom, what do you mean?” Ethan said. He was left speechless.

“What are you talking about?” Abbi e said. “Olivia has no good qualities, and you want to stick with her?”

Ethan was overwhelmed. He pointed at Gina and said, “Mom, don’t you know who she is? She’s Gina, the biological daughter of the Miller family who was separated from her family and lived outside.”

Abbi e was instantly stunned.

She was at a loss for words for a long while. “What?” she said. “She’s Gina?”

She thought, “Why is she so different from what I imagined?

Abbi e thought Gina should be tanned and skinny with a rustic temperament. Her hands should be filled with calluses from

farm work.

After a long while without seeing Ethan, Olivia came looking for him. “Ethan, the ceremony is about to begin… Ah! Gi-Gina, how come you are here?”

Olivia had a premonition.

Chapter 72

But she had to maintain a calm appearance on the surface,

“Didn’t you specifically instruct Mason to send the invitation to me?” Gina said calmly.

Olivia had completely forgotten about this matter. She had asked Mason to send the invitation solely to show off. She even thought that Gina would surely not show up. She thought. Wouldn’t she be asking for humiliation if she were to come?

But things didn’t unfold as Olivia had expected.

Olivia’s expression was tense. She could not hold it in anymore, but Ethan’s mother was still around.

Olivia’s eyes shifted. She looked at A b b ie and said, “A b b i e, I’m sorry, I invited Gina without asking you if it’s okay. You won’t mind, right?”

She knew that although Abb ie had never seen Gina before, she despised this country bumpkin.

Abbi e looked very awkward. She thought, ‘I didn’t expect that the young lady I’ve been thinking about is the rustic Gina.”

No matter how good Gina’s temperament was, Abb ie considered it inadequate. In an instant, Abb ie ‘s attitude changed, and she said to Gina with displeasure. “You’re not welcome here. Leave!”

Olivia heaved a sigh of relief.

I’m not leaving.” Gina said, staying completely still.

Abbi e said snidely, “Don’t be rude when I’ve shown you respect. Don’t make me call security. You’re Neil’s savior, but that’s a separate matter. Just because you saved Neil’s life doesn’t mean everyone in the Jackson family has to treat you with respect. Don’t even think about complaining to Neil. Neil is not here today.”

“Neil’s not here today? Gina thought, feeling somewhat surprised. “But it’s good that Neil is not here today.

Gina felt relieved. After all, she was here today to ruin the engagement party.

Olivia felt a wave of awkwardness wash over her face. Neil’s absence from the engagement party made her feel that as the future daughter-in-law of the Jackson family, she was not valued. Fortunately, others did not know, but she did not expect Abbi e to say it in front of Gina

‘D a m n old hag!’ she thought.

“Who do you want to drive away?” Gabriel asked with a gloomy expression as he strode over.

A b b i e was extremely awkward for a moment, but she quickly adopted a different attitude. “Gabriel, initially she was supposed to be engaged to Ethan,” she said. “Now that the engagement partner has changed, and she no longer has any connection with the Miller family, isn’t it inappropriate for her to be here? Others will gossip if they know her identity. There’ll be negative rumors if word gets out, right?”

Olivia thought, “This old hag is considering things carefully. She then chimed in, “That’s right. Others will surely think that you’re here to cause trouble, Gina. If word gets out, it won’t be good for your reputation. Gina, I didn’t consider things carefully back then, so I got someone to send you an invitation. I apologize to you. I’m sorry”

Olivia only wanted to keep Cin a in check now because she had a feeling that if Gina stayed at her engagement party, something would definitely go wrong.

“I don’t mind people gossiping.” Gina said. “Besides, what’s there to gossip about?”

She responded coldly with a question in return.

Standing behind Gina, Gabriel said coldly, “Move aside. Isn’t the engagement ceremony about to begin? Are you guys going to just stand here?”

Since Gabriel had spoken up, they could not say anything else.

Olivia clenched her fists and hurriedly sent Noah a message via WhatsApp. party:]

ah, Gina is here to attend the engagement

The only ones from the Miller family attending today were Ella and Noah. Phillip had a stroke and was in the hospital. James and Liam were recuperating in the hospital.

Jason Miller, Ivan Miller, and Ronnie Miller, who were Olivia’s fourth brother, fifth brother, and sixth brother respectively, all had important matters to attend to and could not rush back..

But they had all sent her their blessings and gifts. Jason was holding a concert tour overseas. As the schedule for the concert had been set a year ago, and the tickets had even been sold out, he could not cancel it. However, Jason said he would contact Olivia at the concert venue today and ask his fans to send their blessings.

Noah’s heart s k i p p e d a beat when he received the message. He asked for Gina’s approximate location and found Gina. He did not know Gabriel, so he did not pay attention to the tall man beside Gina.

“Gina!” Noah called out in an unfriendly tone.

But it was Gabriel who turned around first, his gaze cold as he looked at Noah, Noah felt a chill down his spine under Gabriel’s icy stare, sensing that he was not someone to be trifled with.

“You are here to cause trouble, right?” Noah said. “I’m warning you. You’re not allowed to cause trouble at Olivia’s engagement party!”

Gina’s current mood was quite good, and she was willing to tease Noah. “Who said I’m here to cause trouble?” she said. “I’m here to send my blessings. Olivia gave me an invitation, so of course I have to show her due respect by showing up here.”

Noah was a little surprised, thinking. The invitation was actually given by Olivia?

However, on second thought. Noah felt that it was very likely that Gina was lying.

He thought, After all, she is someone who enjoys telling lies.
