Chapter 17 The Blemish
If not for Monica’s revelation, there was no way Jessica would believe that she and Melissa were born of different mothers, let alone the fact that Melissa’s mother used to be the housekeeper who tended to her own mother.
She lamented in her mind, “To have squeezed her way into my place, this illegitimate child of a housekeeper has plenty of tricks up her sleeve!”
After putting on a random outfit, Jessica caught a taxi back to the Jackson residence. The moment Jonathan, her father, saw her, he slapped her in the face before he even said a word.
“Where did you find the cheek to come home after disgracing our family?”
“Calm down, Jonathan. Jessica has just come back. What’s the point in being so angry? Besides, she’s still a child. It’s understandable for her to make mistakes.”
Rhonda Rousley, Melissa’s mother, approached them. Her long and slender fingers stroked Jonathan’s chest as she pacified him in a gentle tone.
“What happened to you? I heard Melissa mention that you are still working at Cerulean. Have you not humiliated me enough already?” Jonathan thundered.
The more he looked at her, the more intense his rage became, and he made no effort to hold it back.

“Also, everything that you used to have belongs to me now. Regardless of your status as Horington’s top socialite or the black card that only you possess.”
While speaking, Melissa waved the black card in her hand that was representative of her status as the city’s top socialite.
“I now have everything that used to belong to you. Are you pissed? Even if you are, you have no choice but to bear with it!” Melissa broke into a mocking smile. On her way out, she remarked without even looking back, “Come down for the meal, and be quick about it. Otherwise, I can’t guarantee if our father will come up here and give you an earful. After all, you are the biggest blemish of his life!”
With bloodshot eyes, Jessica gave Melissa a deathly stare.
