Avery Tate was forced to marry a bigshot by her stepmother as her father’s company was on the verge of bankruptcy. There was a catch, the bigshot—Elliot Foster—was in a state of coma. In the public’s eye, it was only a matter of time until she was deemed a widow and be kicked out of the family. A twist of event happened when Elliot unexpectedly woke up from his coma. Fuming at his marriage situation, he lashed out on Avery and threatened to kill their babies if they had any. “I’ll kill them with my very hands!” he bawled. Four years had passed when Avery returned to her homeland with her fraternal twins—a boy and a girl. As she pointed at Elliot’s face on a TV screen, she reminded her babies, “Stay far away from this man, he’s sworn to kill you both.” That night, Elliot’s computer was hacked and he was challenged—by one of the twins—to kill them. “Come and get me, *sshole!”
Inside the Tates’ living room, Wanda Tate gave an ultimatum to her stepdaughter, Avery Tate. “You can see your father on the condition that you either marry Elliot Foster or fork out one and a half million dollars. The choice is yours.”
Avery smiled coldly after hearing that. “You’re pushing me to marry a man who is in a persistent vegetative state because you can’t bear the thought of your daughter doing the same? And you’re doing that just because you want the money? Well, keep dreaming if you think you can threaten me like that!”
“So, you’re not going to make a choice then?” Wanda raised her voice and pointed at Avery. “Then I’ll just end your father’s treatment. Our family doesn’t have much money left, so I might as well save it for your sister’s dowry rather than spend it on a dying man. I’m still his wife, remember? I have the authority to stop his treatment at any time.”
“How dare you!”
“Tch! If you want to save him, then do as I say and marry Elliot.”
Avery’s expression turned cold and she left without saying another word.
Wanda was a sinister and vicious woman who never made empty threats.
Avery had to find a way to raise money as soon as possible. She took out her cell phone and called her boyfriend, Cole, because she felt that he would be able to help her. After all, Cole was one of the Fosters, and he was also Elliot’s nephew.
However, his familiar ringtone somehow blared from a nearby bedroom. Avery thought that she misheard because Cole could not have been at her home, much less in her sister’s room.
Avery was still doubting herself when her sister Cassandra’s voice said, “It’s a call from my sister. Aren’t you going to answer it, Cole? What if it’s something urgent?”
“Who cares about that b*tch? She’s never let me f*cked her in the three years that we were together, so I bet she has some sort of illness down there. But with you… Oh my, I can’t get enough of you! My uncle is a vegetable now, and he doesn’t have much longer to live. When she marries him and ends up being a widow, I’ll coax her so that all the Fosters’ assets will be ours. Then I’m going to have lots of fun with you.”
“You’re so naughty!”‘
