Susan watched silently, not even knowing why she felt so calm.
Perhaps it was because she had come to accept that everything she liked would ultimately be taken away by Yana. She liked Timothy so much, so how could Yana not try to snatch him away?
Susan lowered her gaze, feeling an odd sense of resignation.
“Timothy?” Carl paused for a moment, but then he seemed pleased. “He likes you?”
Timothy didn’t come from a privileged background, but his exceptional abilities spoke for themselves.
Despite his humble beginnings, he started his own business in college, and within five years of graduating, he was worth over a billion dollars. His potential knew no bounds.
Although not as good as Ben, he was also a business genius.
If Yana could be with Timothy, Carl would certainly approve.
“Yeah, he confessed his love to me. He said he fell in love with me at first. sight.” As Yana spoke, she gave Susan a smug look.
Yana knew Susan liked Timothy.
But what did that matter?
She was sure Timothy was hers!
“Good. That’s great.” Carl was overjoyed.
Whether marrying Ben would bring them benefits from the Landor family was still uncertain. However, if Yana married Timothy, with the latter’s abilities, he could undoubtedly elevate the Miller family’s status. Thinking of that, Carl made up his mind.
He looked at Susan coldly and declared, “Alright, I’ll tell the Landor family that You will marry Ben! Susan, you better not show any reluctance. You know the Landor family’s style, and if you offend them, not only will we suffer, but you might be the first one to pay the price.”
Susan remained silent, thinking about the photo.
A reserved person like Timothy would actually take such an intimate photo with Yana in private.
He must really like Yana.

Yana effortlessly obtained the person Susan had longed for but couldn’t have.
“Timothy…” Susan called the name inwardly.
Suppressing the complex feelings churning within her, Susan raised her head and looked at her parents steadily. “You have always said that I owe Yana. Then if I marry Ben, will that settle my debt?”
Susan’s expression remained unruffled, a sight rarely seen by Carl and Jane. They both blinked in surprise.
After a moment of hesitation, Carl spoke slowly. “I’ve already found someone else with a compatible blood type for Yana. As long as you obediently marry Ben, there will be no need for you to donate blood in the future, unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
A hint of mockery flickered in Susan’s eyes.
Yana’s blood type was rare, but they could surely find a matching donor if the price was right.
Carl must have found such a person long ago. But how could anyone else be as obedient as she was?
After all, drawing blood from their consistently weak eldest daughter required much less effort than finding someone else.
Susan understood all of this very well, and a light smile played on her lips.
She turned her head and looked out of the window, saying faintly, “I would marry Ben if the Landor family was fine with it. And once I marry him, I won’t owe you anything.”
The sun shone in through the window, making Susan’s cheeks seem almost translucent.
At the Landor residence.
Ben browsed through the document with a poker face while his grandpa, Charlie Landor, was pacing back and forth energetically.
“What’s wrong with the Miller family? It’s a blessing for them to be allowed to have their daughter marry into our family. How dare they replace her with someone else? Do they think I’m a pushover?” said Charlie angrily
Despite the Miller family’s polite words, the astute Charlie saw through

Seeing Ben’s indifferent demeanor, he walked over and closed Ben’s file. “You don’t show any reaction at all. It’s obvious that the Miller family is looking down on you!”
Charlic also admitted that it was partly his fault for not making things clear in the first place, giving the Miller family a chance to take advantage.
Ben raised his head and the hideous scar on his face twitched slightly. Actually, even Charlie was loath to look at Ben’s face.
“It made sense that they did so for I looked like a monster.” Ben raised his head, unfazed.
“What do you want to say about your appearance? I suppose…” Charlie wanted to say something.
Ben just looked at him quietly.
Charlie couldn’t help coughing. “You could cure your scar one day. Plus, capability matters more to a man than appearances.”
Untouched by Charlie’s words of consolation, Ben said indifferently, “None of these matters. If you don’t like it, Grandfather, we can call off the engagement. I don’t mind.”
He had no real interest in marriage; he left all the arrangements to his grandfather. The only reason he was willing to get married was to bring some joy to the old man.
Charlic, who had been so furious before, now seemed conflicted. “But the fortune teller points out that Yana is the most suitable for you.”
Ben’s marriage had indeed faced difficulties, so Charlie consulted a
fortune teller with the belief of “better safe than sorry.”
According to the fortune teller, Ben’s fate was too strong, and an ordinary woman wouldn’t be able to handle it. He needed a woman with an
equally strong fate for them to complement each other.
And Yana fitted the bill/
Ben raised an eyebrow doubtfully.
He didn’t believe in all this fortune–telling stuff, but since his grandfather did, he decided to go along with it.
He said calmly, “I remember that Yana and Susan are twins.
Since they were twins, their birth charts would naturally be the same.

Charlie froze for a second before he said, “Well, that is true. But I know little about the Miller family’s eldest daughter for she is so low–key. What if she is, let’s say, not very attractive…”
“It’s okay,” Ben replied.
“Hmm?” Charlie was puzzled.
Ben slowly explained, “Even if she’s not attractive, can she be uglier than me?”
Charlie was speechless because Ben did have a point.
Charlie then waved his hand helplessly. “Forget it. I’ll think about it.”
Charlie agonized over the decision for a while after going back, thinking about Ben’s tumultuous love life and the resolute words of the
fortune–teller. Additionally, Carl had sent over a photo.
Although Susan was not as stunning as Yana, she was quite lovely.
After careful consideration, Charlie eventually agreed to Carl’s request.
Actually, he hadn’t taken much of a liking to Yana; it was all about the astrological compatibility.
Be it Yana or Susan, it wouldn’t make much difference.
However, after this whole episode, Charlie’s opinion of the Miller family, Yana, and even Susan had soured.
The wedding date had been carefully chosen as well.
It was just a week away.
No matter how messy things were behind the scenes, time didn’t wait for
On the eve of the grand wedding, Susan was alone in her room.
She picked up her phone and looked at Timothy’s name in her contacts list.
Tomorrow she would be getting married.
Marriage marked the beginning of a new life, and it was time to bid farewell to the past.
Susan closed her eyes, recollecting her memory of Timothy for the last time.
She thought about their high school days, her struggle to attend the same university as Timothy, and her relentless pursuit of joining his company after graduation. She thought about the early days of their startup, filled

with caution and hardship.
But all of that was in the past now.
Now she should live with it and start a new chapter.
Susan opened her eyes and smiled, feeling a sense of closure.
Timothy was away, personally handling a major project abroad, and he hadn’t returned yet.
She would likely already be Ben’s wife when Timothy came back.
But considering his reserved nature, he would probably not care about it.
After all, the one he truly cared about was Yana.
Susan didn’t dwell on it any longer. She opened her computer, drafted a heartfelt resignation email, and sent it to Timothy’s inbox.
She couldn’t bear to watch Timothy and Yana’s lovey–dovey interactions at the company.
Since she had poured her heart and soul into the company, leaving abruptly was a painful decision. But at this point, a clean break was for
Taking the time difference into account, it was currently 8 p.m. where she was, and Timothy’s side was likely in the early hours of the morning.
Susan sent the email and didn’t expect an immediate response. She was about to log off when Timothy’s reply came in–a large question mark.
Susan sat in front of the computer for a moment, not responding, and then logged off.
