Rihanna’s expression quickly hardened.
She doubted her eyes at first. There are some necklaces that look similar. However, the necklace undoubtedly had the same design as the one she saw on her husband’s desk. She wasn’t stupid. It was the same necklace, she wouldn’t confuse them.
Rihanna looked at Lisbeth with a dazed expression, forgetting to control her expression. Seeing Rihanna’s expression, Lisbeth asked in surprise.
“Are you okay, sister? Do you feel sick or something?”
“As soon as you saw me, your face became stiff. I’m not an unwanted visitor, right?”
“What are you talking about, Lisbeth?”
A low chuckle was heard from the side. Rihanna turned her head and looked at George, who was wearing a bright smile as he stared at Lisbeth.
His eyes were brimming with emotion as he watched her sister. Since when did George not look at her that way?
He had a perplexed look, like someone who had forgotten how to speak as his heart was beating unsteady rhythms. Rihanna glanced at both George and Lisbeth’s faces.
“You must have been surprised by my sudden arrival, right, Rihanna?”
Rihanna only mumbled unconsciously, still in a daze. It was an instinctual response, made to get out of this situation without creating a fuss.
“I was surprised to see you arrive suddenly, Lisbeth.”
“You get startled too easily, sister. I was only talking to other people over there.”
After saying those words, Lisbeth’s gaze went to Rihanna’s neck. The corners of her mouth curved quickly.
“Oh, what is that necklace? It’s so pretty.”
“Do you really think so, Lady Lisbeth?”
“Yes. I didn’t know a green accessory would look so good on my sister.”
“I gave it to her as an anniversary present. I am relieved that you took a liking to it as well, Lady Lisbeth.”
“Mrs. McCarthy’s has an excellent taste even without adding my opinion. It suits you very well, sister.”
“Now that I see it, you are also wearing a nice necklace, Lady Lisbeth.”
Lisbeth smiled casually, fiddling with the necklace around her neck.
“I got it as a present.”
At Lisbeth’s response, Rihanna’s heart plummeted again. Then she couldn’t help but ask.
“Was it a present?”
Lisbeth asked calmly, as she continued to fiddle with her necklace.
“What do you think? Pretty?”
“Yes, it’s very beautiful. You can tell it’s a luxurious item at first glance.”
After saying that, Mrs. McCarthy asked, looking sharply at Lisbeth.
“Maybe you’ve been dating any young man lately?”
“Oops… That’s a secret.”
“Although I haven’t heard any particular information yet.”
“I would prefer it if you stop asking again. Today’s protagonist is my sister. no matter what.”
Lisbeth’s gaze moved from Mrs. McCarthy to Rihanna.
With her sudden glance, Rihanna became rigid. She subtly composed herself and faced her sister’s stare with an uncomfortable smile as she listened to Lisbeth’s comments.
“Sister, congratulations on your fourth wedding anniversary.”
How could she say that while wearing that necklace?
At that moment, feeling overwhelmed, and the back of her neck becoming stiff, Rihanna breathed slowly.
“…Thank you, Lisbeth.”
And as naturally as possible, she raised the corners of her mouth to receive her sister’s congratulations with grace.
Then, Lisbeth’s gaze turned to Rihanna’s husband George.
“George. Thank you so much for living with my sister for four years.”
“I thank you too, Lisbeth.”
“Because you’ve been in our family for four years.”
As she watched George sweet-talk Lisbeth with a smile on her face, Rihanna could not take it anymore. This whole situation seemed like a nightmare to her.
Rihanna was so shocked, she lost her balance. Surprised, Mrs. McCarthy quickly assisted Rihanna.
“Oh, Lady Rihanna! Are you alright?”
“Ah…yes. I’m fine, Mrs. McCarthy.”
“What happened to you all of a sudden? Do you feel any pain?”
Instead of responding immediately, Rihanna turned her gaze to George and Lisbeth, who were looking at her. George had a slightly unfriendly expression on his face. She felt her heart breaking by the contrast between the way he looked at Lisbeth and the way he looked at her. And when she looked at Lisbeth’s worried face, she felt nauseous. She considered it despicable.
Rihanna calmed down, putting her feet firmly on the ground. Then she tried to smile and reassure those who were looking at her worriedly.
“In fact, since this morning, I have been suffering from dizziness for no apparent reason.”
“Oh, dizziness? Suddenly?”
