Spoiled by Eight Uncles (Lily) novel Chapter 1

Lambridge City, Promenade 1st Villa Area – the Hatcher Mansion.

Today was the Lantern festival. Colorful lights were decorated around the house, giving a touch of warmth to the cold atmosphere of the Hatcher family.

Suddenly, a scream echoed across the mansion.


Followed by thudding, a large-bellied woman fell from the stairs!

Everyone was surprised and hurried toward her.

Stephen Hatcher, the president of Ador Hatcher Corporation, quickly asked, “Debbie, are you alright?”

The woman’s face turned pale when she saw fresh blood trickling down her legs. Horrified, she replied, “Stephen, it hurts… Our baby… Quickly, save our baby!”

The house’s madam, Paula Anderson, panicked and asked, “What happened?!”

Debbie looked toward the top of the stairs with tears in her eyes.

Everyone looked up and saw a girl, about three years old, standing at the top of the stairs. Upon seeing everyone’s gaze, she hugged the toy rabbit in her arms tightly in fear.

Richard Hatcher roared angrily, “Were you the one that pushed Debbie?!”

The little girl pouted. “It’s not me, and I didn’t…”

While crying, Debbie begged, “No… Dad, it’s not Lilly’s fault. She’s still young, and she didn’t mean it…”

Her words quickly reaffirmed that it was Lilly’s fault.

Stephen’s eyes darkened, and he immediately ordered, “Lock her in the attic! I’ll deal with her once I return!”

The other hurriedly sent Debbie to the hospital while the servants dragged Lilly upstairs.

Even when a shoe fell off, she kept a stubborn face and did not beg or cry for help.

No light or heat could reach the dark and cold attic. The windows squeaked as if a monster would appear at any moment…

Lilly hugged her stuffed bunny tightly and curled up in a corner.

It’s so cold…

The truth was she never pushed anyone, but no one believed her.

As it was cold spring weather, the snow and the wind made their way into the attic through the window cracks, piling layers of coldness onto little Lilly.

Soon, an entire day had passed by.

No one cared about Lilly, and no one even knew that Debbie had punished her the day before. She was already in a daze as she had yet to eat anything.

Richard had ordered that she was not allowed to leave until she admitted that it was her fault.


Lilly’s lips were turning purple from the cold, and she was shivering. She could only close her eyes and mumble, “Mommy… I didn’t do anything wrong… It’s not my fault…”

She knew that her mother had died from an illness a year ago.

After her mother passed on, her dad found another woman, and soon the woman was pregnant with a baby…

However, the woman was two-faced. She was only nice to Lilly when others were present; otherwise, she would act like a demon punishing her.

Mommy… Lilly thought as she squeezed her toy rabbit’s ears before losing consciousness.

Not knowing how long it had been, the door suddenly opened with a loud bang.

Stephen was furious when he picked up the unconscious Lilly, dragging her down the stairs and throwing her outside into the snow!

Lilly shivered from the cold surface and struggled to open her eyes…

“Daddy… I’m hungry…” She muttered.

Stephen scoffed. “You killed Debbie’s unborn child, and the first thing you’re telling me is that you’re hungry?! I can’t believe I have such an evil daughter!”

Lilly’s eyes were hollow, and she could not speak as she was frozen stiff.

The more Stephen looked at her, the angrier he became. Why is she still acting stubborn despite being at fault? You malicious child!

“It is my fault as a parent that you’re behaving this way! Now that you’ve killed your unborn brother, who knows if you will start murdering people when you grow up? As your father, I must teach you a lesson!”

He looked around and picked up a broom from the corner, snapping the broom head off.
