My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 135
A black Mercedes-Benz was parked outside the Berry Residence. It did not take a genius to know that the car must be Dixon’s.
She did not expect him to arrive early.
With a tight grip on her purse, she entered the Berry Residence and went straight to the living room.
The moment she stepped into the house, she saw a feminine-looking man sitting casually on the sofa. The man looked unruly, like a playboy.
Penelope was looking at Dixon with admiration in her eyes. Shyly, she served some custards to the man. “Dixon, I made these custards myself. Please have a try.”
“Are you saying that I look like a woman?” Dixon scowled as he glared at her.
The appeasing smile on Penelope’s face froze as she mumbled, “Mr. Haddock, you’ve misinterpreted me. I just wanted to show you my kitchen skills.”
A scoff of disdain escaped Dixon as he ordered, “Take it away. I don’t want it.”
Feeling upset and aggrieved, Penelope murmured with a reddened face, “I’m sorry, Mr. Haddock.”
When Ashlyn saw the scene, she nearly laughed.
It was obvious that Penelope had tried to butter him up, but to no avail.
She wanted to show him that she was ‘wife material’.
Unable to hold it back any longer, Ashlyn chuckled softly before looking at Dixon. “Mr. Haddock, we meet again.”
At that moment, Dixon heard a clear, chime-like familiar voice sounding from behind him.
He turned to look at the door to find Ashlyn looking at Penelope and him with smiling eyes.
However, she seemed amused, as if she had just witnessed the unfolding of a drama.
The woman who knows Ms. Saunders at the charity gala.
The woman who has Jared and Winsor wrapped around her finger.
Unlike the formal attire she wore at the charity gala, Ashlyn had worn a simple white dress and shoes today. Her hair was also tied up in a ponytail.
She did not even apply any colored tint to her lips.
Her milky skin was so fair it was almost translucent.
She was without makeup, but she looked spectacular. She’s part of the Berry family? Ashlyn did not look like she fit into the Berry family. Dixon had been impressed by her, but now that he had found out she was one of the Berrys, he was disappointed.
He did not even know why he felt that way.
Dixon looked at Ashlyn gloomily, who was standing by the doorway. Penelope spotted the shock in his eyes that he could not hide away in time.
Furious, she bit down hard on her lower lip before she pitifully brought the bowl of custard back to the kitchen.
She had finally found someone to invest in, but Ashlyn had stolen the limelight again.
Since young, Ashlyn’s exquisite face had bewitched countless men.
Both of them studied at the same school. In the beginning, the boys were all buttering her up. Once they were familiar with her, they would use her to gift Ashlyn presents and love letters.
She was done with this feeling.
When Penelope reemerged from the kitchen, she had a plate of fruits in her hands.
“Ashlyn, you’re back. Why don’t you come in?”
“Penelope, drop that fake smile on your face. It’s disgusting.”
Ashlyn entered the living room and sat on the sofa opposite Dixon.
She crossed her legs, and those fair legs shone under the bright lights of the living room.
It was an alluring sight.
Penelope froze. In response to Ashlyn’s harsh words, her frown deepened. “Mr. Haddock, I’m sorry. My sister’s not too good with her words.”
“My mom didn’t give birth to you. Don’t pretend we’re close to each other.” Ashlyn shot her a glare, exposing her for her show again.
Penelope took in a deep breath. Mr. Haddock is here. I can’t lose my temper now.
I can’t fall for this b*tch’s tricks.
With the perfect look of a loving sister, Penelope said, “Ashlyn, it’s been a while since you were home, so you must not know about this. I’m working at the First Hospital now.”
