Stay Around You Now And Forever

Chapter 9:  What is that?

What would make you dizzy, body heat up and feel strange after drinking it?

Charles' attention was now on Wendy. He was almost fifty and he wasn't a fool. What drink did she
drink and why did his second daughter give it to his youngest daughter?

Wendy was full of guilt, she shook her head, "Father, | didn't drug Emily, how could I..."

Emily blinked those big round eyes and stared at her accusingly but innocently, Wendy, what do you
mean drugged? Did you drug me? `"

She was only eighteen and it was easy to pretend that she didn't know what was happening.

Emily, with a little experience now, certainly acted very convincingly!

"Wendy! What did you let her drink?" Charles frowned angrily.

lf Wendy had really done anything to sabotage Emily and Hunter .Jackson's engagement, he would pay
for itI

"Father, how could I hurt Emily? That silly girl must have drunk something she shouldn't have and she
was afraid that she ll be

punished by you. She is just blaming me for your problems."

Wendy was really acting it up, there were even mist in her eyes.

"Dad, I'm your daughter. You should be aware of what kind of person | am."

Kate interjected, "Charles, our Wendy is well khown in Bentson City, do you think that she could do that
to her sister?”

"Furthermore, Emily has always been a little naughty. Who are you going to trust, her or Wendy who
has always been loyal and successful daughter.'

Wendy has always been serious in her studies and obedient to her parents. Whether it was helping
others or schoolwork, it has always been top marks.

When she was eighteen, she participated in several social events in Bentson City and promptly
became known as the most popular socialite in Bentson City. She was not only beautiful but she was
also very talented. She played the piano well, danced well, everything she did was perfection.

Charles looked again at Emily who was still standing at the stairs. He was unsure of what to do.

She is his daughter but she has always been a delinquent. She doesn't like to study, she smokes and
drinks, likes to wear heavy makeup, flirt, run away from home, you name it, she has done it.

These can be saved by an innocent perfect face.

At last, Charles said, "Emily, your sister wouldn't have done that to you, I'm afraid this is a

Emily laughed coldly without a hint of warmth.

Emily knew her father well and why he said what he did. Most of her 'problems' were because of
Wendy. She smoked, drank heavily and wore heavy make-up only once at the bequest of Wendy.

Someone took her photo and the picture went viral across the internet.

She was an idiot in her previous life, Emily admitted to herself. She has never suspected Wendy.

“Of course, I know that it's a misunderstanding, why would my older sister want to harm me? She
always taught me how to cover my tracks and how to hide my misdeeds.'

She blinked and laughed, 'If it wasn't for Wendy, father, you wouldn't have found out so quickly.'

"What did you say?" Charles stared at Wendy.

'Father, l.. how would I.... Damn that Emily, Wendy thought. Is she doing all of this on purpose tonight?
How could she have such a big transformation, especially on a key night like tonight?

Was it a slip of the tongue or on purpose? Was she mistaken? Wendy got nervous, had she overplayed
her hand tonight?

"Charles, Wendy hates the smell of cigarettes. You know that. Do you think that she'll teach Emily how
to smoke?”

Kate wanted so much to slap Emily. Previously Emily was dumb as a post, she didn† even know how
to string a sentence properly. But now, her words are sharp while appearing to be innocent. Every
sentence was drawing blood, something was different.

Charles didn't know what to believe. Tonight, his youngest daughter had a huge change and he is still
stunned. But, now he had to take care of the issue behind the cancelled ceremony. What was he going
to do about that?

Suddenly, Kate raised her eyebrow and dashed upstairs towards Emily, "What's that on your neck?”
