Cordy did not humiliate Noel with their relatives watching.
Still, she made sure to sit on the very edge of the couch, looking just like an outsider.
That was when Molly Sachs asked her pointedly. “Cordy? You didn’t bring your grandmother a present, huh?”
Molly was Simon Sachs’ younger sister, and her family worked for Simon when he ruled Starstream. She was very close to Sue Yorkman as well, and was instrumental in Sue’s success in seducing Simon back then.
Cordy was laughing inwardly, as she suddenly remembered that Mandy Jessop was also instrumental in Noel’s success in seducing Kyle Jessop
The girl really took after her mother!
“Who would want anything from her?” Plum scoffed with a look of pure disdain. “Just look at her. She literally screams poverty-she’d never afford anything!”
“Don’t say that, Granny. She just inherited Starstream Group, and the company has been developing in recent years. Also, I ran into her at Davis’ Kitchen. Any dining session there would cost at least four figures, and I wouldn’t have gone if Molly did not insist on buying me dinner…”
Noel only stopped after blabbing all that, as if realizing she had misspoken.
“You really know how to enjoy yourself, don’t you?!” Plum snorted.
At the same time, Molly suddenly looked like a proper elder “That’s really terrible of you, Cordy. You’d rather dine like a king than buy your grandmother a present… Honestly, even I can’t take your side now “Yeah! Do you even have a conscience, Cordy?! It’s only once a year…

Everyone in the hall clamored to throw shade at Cordy.
However, while she would bear with it in silence in the past, she was now long past the age of being. pushed around.
“But if I remember correctly, those clothes are Jessop Corp’s SW-series for the spring season… Last spring, to be precise.”
Noel’s face turned pale.
But even before she could retort, Cordy added, “To be fair, that seasonal line didn’t really sell well for old folks, so not many were aware. Hell, back when I was working at Jessop Corp, I remember thousands of those exact same clothes kept in their warehouse… Wait, did Kyle give these to you?!”
Noel was left glowering.
