Chapter 2

Regina was not in the same league as Nicole, both in looks and studies. She even did not expect that her family background, which she had always been proud of, was completely eclipsed by Nicole’s, and this made her feel jealous to the extreme. 

“Get in the car, Nicole.” In full view of everyone, Sean helped Nicole open the car door like a gentleman as he looked at her with gentle eyes. 

“He is so charming. If only I could have such a charming and rich brother.” 

“Yeah, I’m really envious of her.” 

Regina listened to the discussion with the jealousy and hatred in her surging like a stormy sea. So, she deliberately shouted, “What is there to be proud of? She is just a bumpkin. She thinks she can be a social elite overnight?” 

Nicole was about to get into the car and paused when she heard that. Now, even Sean’s eyes had darkened. 

“What the hell are you talking about, Regina?” Ms. Mills looked displeased. 

Mr. Barrett recognized this daughter of a board member, but he still could not afford to offend the Riddles. He immediately rebuked Ms. Mills. “Is this the student council president you have appointed?” 


Nicole promptly fanned the flame. “Ms. Mills, the behavior of student cadres affects the school’s image. The next time you select someone, select someone with a brain, not just someone who could pay you.” 

Ms. Mills did not expect Nicole to mention that she received monetary benefit by appointing the student council president. Right now, she felt a burning sensation on her face because of the humiliation. 

When she removed Nicole and appointed Regina to be the student council president, she had gotten a green light from Mr. Barrett. 

Seeing Nicole displeased, Sean glanced at Mr. Barrett and said in an icy voice, “You know what to do, Mr. Barrett.” 

Thinking back to how she had helped Regina look for trouble with Nicole all these days, Ms. Mills’ face turned pale immediately.
