“Mr. Landor.” Susan had approached Charlie.
The latter looked at Susan with great interest. “Are you getting impatient?” Susan shook her head. She had only wanted to frighten Yana earlier and had no intention of actually telling Charlie those words.
Susan just calmly said, “Mr. Landor, I know that Ben is too busy with work. A small event like a wedding can easily be managed by me alone.”
“You alone?” Charlie was a little surprised.
He had thought Susan was just venting her frustration.
But as he observed her carefully, Susan’s gaze was clear, and her words were sincere. She truly meant what she said.
Susan nodded and was about to continue when a well–dressed woman nearby spoke kindly. “It’s not right to let the bride handle the wedding alone. This time, Ben is really being unreasonable.”
Charlie glanced at the woman, and he immediately frowned.
Susan also looked over.
Susan recognized that this woman was Penelope Landor, Ben’s stepmother.
Although Susan didn’t know much about the Landor family, Susan was
She knew very well that outwardly Penelope was defending her, but in fact, she was belittling Ben.
She knew that Ben was her pillar of support after she married into the Landor family.
How could she agree with Penelope?
Realizing that, Susan immediately said, “Mrs. Landor, the wedding is just a ceremony and not as important as it seems. Ben and I don’t care about it, so please don’t trouble yourself.”
Susan was implying that Penelope was being nosy.
Penelope was displeased, and her gaze towards Susan was as sharp as a knife.
Susan didn’t care about Penelope’s feelings. She only noticed that Charlie’s expression softened a little.

Then Susan looked at Charlie again. “Mr. Landor, work comes first, and we are not sure when Benny will finish his work. We can’t keep the guests waiting indefinitely, right?”
A hint of amusement flickered in Charlie’s eyes.
This daughter–in–law of his was indeed an interesting person.
For a moment, some of his animosity towards Susan had dissipated.
Watching the impatient guests, Charlie considered for a moment and nodded, saying, “As long as you can accept it.”
“Alright,” Susan replied, feeling a sense of relief.
With an agreement reached between Susan and Charlie, the priest began the ceremony.
The groom was absent, and Susan, in her long wedding gown, stood alone in front of the priest.
The guests all felt strange.
A groom’s absence at his own wedding spoke volumes about his dissatisfaction, especially considering the rumors about Ben.
“She’ll probably be living a hard life in the Landor family,” people thought.
Some took pleasure in this situation, others sympathized, and some even mocked. The guests‘ reactions were varied.
But Susan just stood there quietly, like a pine tree that would never fall.
Just as the priest was about to say something, the door of the church suddenly swung open.
Susan turned back abruptly.
She thought, “Could it be Ben?”
She looked over with anticipation, only to be plunged into
disappointment the next moment.
The man standing at the door was not Ben.
It was Timothy.
He appeared weary from his journey.
But he stood upright.
When Susan saw him, her hands trembled.

She never thought he’d actually come.
Wasn’t his overseas collaboration supposed to take several more days?
He had rushed back… Could it be for her?
Although Susan had decided to let go of the past, she couldn’t help but entertain some fleeting fantasies.
“Timothy, why are you here?” At this time, Yana excitedly stood up and threw herself into Timothy’s arms.
Timothy, whose eyes were initially lowered, unable to reveal his emotions, instinctively embraced Yana as she came rushing in.
Susan clenched her fists slightly.
As the two embraced, they looked like a perfect couple, and Susan’s earlier momentary joy seemed tragically comical in comparison.
A hint of sorrow flashed across Susan’s eyes. Despite her decision to let go, this was someone she had loved wholeheartedly for ten years. While holding Yana, Timothy shifted his gaze towards Susan. He looked at her in her splendid wedding gown, his eyes deep and inscrutable. Yana, sensitive to Timothy’s distraction, said in a sweet voice, “Timothy, you must have been working day and night to come back early to see me. Don’t do this again; it worries me.”
Timothy fell silent for a moment before speaking slowly. “OK.”
“Well, good boy.” Yana playfully tapped his nose.
As the two of them interacted, seemingly oblivious to their surroundings, those who recognized Timothy began to gossip discreetly.
“It’s Timothy. The Miller sisters may not have a strong family background, but they seem to have good luck.”
“Yana is indeed lucky. But Susan… Well, I’m not sure.”
“That’s true. Ben’s face is terrible, and he is bad–tempered. Moreover, he didn’t even show up at the wedding. Maybe Ben doesn’t like Susan at all.” “Yeah. I wouldn’t even have the courage to stand in front of the priest if I were Susan.”
The guests whispered and chuckled as Susan’s face grew paler,
At this time, Yana had already escorted Timothy to their seats.
Susan glanced at them and then turned around, her gaze fixed

stubbornly on the priest.
The more embarrassed, helpless, and tormented she felt, the less she wanted to reveal these emotions, especially in front of Timothy.
It was just a wedding, after all.
She could handle it on her own!
Timothy stared at Susan standing alone in front of the priest, his lips. tightly pursed.
He knew that Susan liked him.
He had known it all along.
In their senior year, her grades could only have gotten her into an average university. But in just a year, she had studied hard and had managed to enter Coraland’s top university, just like him.
He had chosen computer science without hesitation because he liked it.
But Susan, who was obviously not interested in computers, also chose the same major as him firmly.
He wanted to start a business, but no one supported him.
It was Susan who had stood by his side, helping him build the company from scratch to its current scale. The hardships they faced during that journey were beyond anyone’s imagination.
But just when everything was finally on track, when she no longer needed to work so hard, she resigned.
The reason for her resignation was to get married.
Didn’t she like him?
But it seemed that Susan preferred the Landor family’s power to him.
Timothy clenched his fists slightly.
He had chosen Yana over Susan, but he had never expected Susan to leave so decisively.
He thought that Susan would always wait for him.
As he looked at Susan in her pristine wedding dress, Timothy suddenly felt an emptiness in his heart, as if he had lost a precious treasure. Lost in thought, Timothy was suddenly interrupted by the priest’s loud question to the empty space next to Susan. “Mr. Landor, do you willingly take Ms. Miller as your wife, to love and cherish her in wealth and
wife, to l

poverty, in sickness and health, in prosperity and adversity?”
Susan was slightly shocked.
The groom was absent, and the ceremony should have been streamlined.
But the priest continued with the original script, knowing that no one would answer.
Was the priest deliberately trying to embarrass her?
Now, what should she do?
Timothy frowned and almost stood up, but Yana held him tightly and said coquettishly, “Timothy, I suddenly feel a little dizzy.”
Timothy was stunned for a moment and subconsciously embraced Yana. He didn’t make any further move.
Yana lowered her eyelids, hiding her smugness.
Yana thought, “Susan, look at how happy I am and how embarrassed you are. Even if you marry Ben, you’re destined to be beneath my feet for the rest of your life.”
