Hence, if Stella wanted them to believe that Joanna was her ex-husband’s mother, her coworkers would rather believe that it was the official wife who came to teach Stella, the mistress, a lesson.

She couldn’t stop Clarence from talking, let alone hundreds of her coworkers.
After leaving SG Jewelry, Stella went to Conrad Group directly. She wanted to pass the envelope to Clarence. No matter what a farce their Conrad family would like to make, she didn’t want to get involved at all.
When Stella arrived, she found that the receptionists in Conrad Group were changed. After she filled in the registration form, one receptionist said, “Excuse me, Ma’am. A few days ago, Mr. Conrad said he wouldn’t meet any designer from SG Jewelry Magazine.”
Stella realized that the wretched man was getting more and more short-tempered.
She pressed her lips and took out the envelope. “Could you please pass this to him for me?”
The receptionist said, “I’m sorry. I can’t take any gift for Mr. Conrad.”
“This isn’t a gift. It’s...”
“I’m sorry, Ma’am. It’s our company rule. I can do nothing.”
Stella could only put the envelope back into her bag. “Okay. Thank you all the same.”
She could only leave with such trouble.
