Spoiled by Eight Uncles (Lily) novel Chapter 24

The door was pushed open, and Liam walked in.

His face darkened. “Come out!” He ordered.

Winona immediately walked toward Hannah.

No, I won’t go out!

She knew what Liam was going to say to her, so she hugged Hannah tightly. She knew Liam would not dare to talk about divorce in front of Hannah.

“How long are you going to do this?” Liam berated.

Tears welled up in Winona’s eyes. “Do what? Didn’t I do everything for you and our family? How could you blame me now? Have you ever thought about Hannah? Do you know how pitiful she is? Why didn’t you protect her as a father just now?” Winona reproached and changed the topic.

Liam did not want to argue. “Divorce!” he exclaimed, straight to the point. He then threw the divorce paper on the table and left the room without looking back.

Winona was stunned. “What did you say?”

She threw the needle away and screamed, “I won’t sign the papers! No way!”

Right then, Hannah’s grandmother, Helen, walked in. “What’s going on? You don’t want your wife and daughter because of your sister’s daughter? You’re not a man! Damn! How did Lily who just move in make her aunt and uncle divorce?”

“Shut up! Get out now! Go home!” shouted Winona.

Every time Helen came to Crawford Mansion, she would stay for a few days. She liked being served by many servants.

Certainly, she was not going to leave since she had just arrived that night.

“Hey, Winona, calm down! You can always talk to Liam. Otherwise, we can find another way to…”

Winona’s eyes turned red. She pushed Helen out of the room and slammed the door.

“Hey, why are you angry with me?” Helen could not help knocking on the door.

What did I say wrong?

The birthday party could not carry on anymore. With a glass of wine in his hand, Bryson smiled. “Thank you everyone for coming to Lily’s four-year-old birthday party. Lily is Jean’s daughter. We’ll not let anyone bully her even though Jean was gone. By the way, I also want to take this opportunity to announce that from today onwards, Lily’s surname is Crawford. Lily Crawford. Thanks again for coming.”

After the speech, everyone left Crawford Mansion one after another.

However, they could not help but whisper when they walked out the gate.

“I have to say Lily is so blessed to have 8 uncles.”

“Yes, she must be spoiled by her uncles!”

Cheryl grabbed Tina, her mother’s dress when she thought of Lilly’s dress. She envied Lily. In fact, she was jealous of her. She also wanted to be adored by many uncles.

Right then, Tina noticed some people were still lingering in the living room.

Seeing a friend rushing in, Tina quickly stopped him and asked, “Mr. Lewis, what’s going on?”

Mr. Lewis answered, “Mr. Lambert is here!”

Tina’s eyes lit up when she heard that.

Cheryl’s father, Thomas Miller, led Tina and Cheryl back into the house at once. They hoped they could meet Lawrence Lambert too.

Cheryl sniffed and said cautiously, “Mommy, I’m sorry. I remember it wrong…”
