“Hello Estela, it’s been a while.”
Our attention flicked to Holley with Sophia, Nixon, Rowan, and a bunch of girls and boys who were approaching us. Some of them were our classmates.
I ignored them, didn’t want to ruin my good mood. Zoe too did the same.
Estela’s face remained cheerful. “Hello Holley and everybody.”
“Estela, it’s been a long time. Why don’t you join us so that we can catch up?” Holley asked with her angelic voice.
“That’s right, Estela. Associating with folks with questionable background and unrefined character will damage your reputation,” said a girl in their group.
We remained quiet, ignoring their provocation.
Estela sweetly smiled, complete with narrowing lids. “Ohh~ you don’t have to be so concerned with my reputation. I’m sure it’s not so badly damage as yours.”
The girl lost her color, but she didn’t dare retort back. The crowd was stunned, yet they remained tight lip.
As expected of the Fay’s, no one wants to be their enemy.
Holley’s smile never wavered. “Estela, can I have a moment with you?”
Estela tilted her head. “Is it a secret? If it’s not, then tell it to me now. After all, we’re all friends here~!”
Holley’s smile froze. “Estela, are you sure about your choice?” she said slow and calm, not hiding the threat in her tone.
Estela propped her chin and grinned. “I’m very sure, just like my brother’s choice.”
Holley’s expression fell right off her pale face. Whispers buzz which added to the discoloration of her skin.
“Is Cain Fay the one who broke the engagement first?”
“But the news said that it was a mutual choice between families.”
“Shhh . . . That’s a sensitive topic.”
Holley’s face was dyed red in anger and embarrassment. She didn’t want to be reminded of Cain breaking their engagement, especially not coming from his little sister’s mouth.
The whole matter regarding the broken engagement was covered up. Saying it was the decision of both families. Not disclosing any information. Only notifying the public that it was a private affair for both families, saving the Goldwood, especially Holley, from humiliation.
The whole matter got complicated when Estela came into the picture. Now, Holley couldn’t openly do something to Leanna because of Estela’s presence.
Estela, who was also elusive just like her brother. Who Holley tried so hard to befriend in the past five years to no avail, and yet befriended Leanna after they just met?
That only confirmed that Cain really likes the country bumpkin which made Holley so angry that her hatred radiated from her no matter how hard she masked it. She couldn’t accept Cain loving another woman. She would go through lengths to get him back no matter what the cost.
Cain is mine! I won’t let that bitch steal him from me!
“Estela, it’s my eighteenth birthday next month. I’ll be handing out invitations next week. I hope you can attend,” Sophia said after a long moment that Holley remained silent.
“I’ll take a rain check first,” Estela replied. Her tone was innocent as the smile on her face.
. . .
. . .
Sensing that the silence was turning awkward, Sophia pulled Holley’s hand.
“Well then, we will leave you all with your meals,” she said with a forced smile before they went away and sat on an empty table together with their minions while secretly glancing in our direction from time to time.
“Are you sure that you wanted to be with us? Your image will be defiled,” I teased.
Estela looked at me funny like I was telling a joke. “I want to see them try. Besides, you’re my sister. I always take the side of my family.”
My lips kicked a smile on its own.
I like the sound of ‘family.’
