Chapter 13

Daniel had never seen Dillon graveling to him for all these years, so he pretended to be jovial. “It is okay. We are all family.” 


But Karen glared at them indignantly. “Since Nicole has entered the high school of Royal Creek Institute, she had better not disgrace the Riddle family with lousy results.” 

So what if Nicole had entered Royal Creek Institute? She would still be a disgrace for the Riddle family if she could not show results. 

Gloria’s expression subtly changed, but she plucked up the courage and said, “We will make sure Nicole delivers. Besides, Mr. Ellison is going to take care of her. Don’t you worry, Karen.” 

Karen’s expression darkened immediately, as she did not expect that Gloria would dare to shoot back. 

Seeing the situation, Dillon quickly stepped forward and dragged Karen away, saying, “It is getting late now. Hurry up. We have got to go.” 

Daniel and Gloria looked at each other and could not help but feel proud of their daughter. 

When they were back at home, Daniel praised Nicole, saying, “You really made us proud today.” 

Daniel had been looked down upon in the family for so many years, and it was the first time he felt so proud. 

It was extremely satisfying whenever he thought of Karen’s red face. Karen had been bullying Gloria all this while, and this time, it was her turn to get a taste of her own medicine. 

Norah just went downstairs and sensed something was wrong when she heard this. “Dad, what made you so happy?”
