The Substitute Bride: Making Memories Of Us Chapter 114

Chapter 114: Wasn’t He Satisfied

After Hayden left, Ayla sat alone in her room.What he said reminded her of the scar in her heart.She no longer held any hope that she’d ever find her parents again.

However, she used to have a child herself.

Even though her child was never born, she still loved her baby with every fiber of her being.

And now, she really wanted to go to the Clark family villa’s backyard.

Ayla walked out of the apartment to stroll along the street.

The street was noisy today.

She entered and then walked out of one store after another with no intention to purchase anything.

All of a sudden, a woman who was carrying several shopping bags bumped into her.

“What the hell? Are you blind or something?”

The shrill voice startled Ayla, but it sounded familiar to her.

“Molly, are you okay?”Toby held Molly up by pulling her arm.

Since she said that she wanted to go shopping tonight, he accompanied her.

By this point, Ayla wished that she hadn’t gone out on her own.

She had no idea that she’d run into them by accident today.

“I’m sorry.”

Lowering her head, Ayla quickly turned around and was about to leave.However, Molly grabbed her arm to stop her.

“Do you think a simple apology is enough?”

“Mrs.Brown, I’ve already apologized.What do you want?” Ayla replied.

She then turned to look at them.

In all honesty, she didn’t want them to see her for fear of being recognized.

However, it wasn’t her fault.

Molly was the one who insisted on pulling her arm.

The moment she saw her, Molly let go of her hand.

Thinking that she had seen a ghost, she almost screamed on the busy street.

“Lala?”

Toby was also surprised to see her.

This woman before them was indeed the same woman he had been thinking of for two years.

“Sorry, I have something else to do.I must go now.”

After saying that, Ayla was about to walk away.However, Toby stopped her from leaving.

“You’re alive! I’m so glad that you’re alive.”

“Yes, I’m still alive and well,”she said flatly.

“Toby, just forget that you saw me today!”

“How could I forget seeing you? Don’t you know that I’ve been looking for you for two years? I’ve always believed that you weren’t dead, and I was right.This is great!”

Toby held her hand tightly, refusing to let her go.

“Toby, I knew you’ve been thinking about Ayla.You b***h! Didn’t you disappear two years ago? Why did you even come back? Tell me!”When Molly regained her composure, she scolded Ayla.It was clear that how much she hated her.

“Mrs.Brown, there’s a reason I returned to A City, and it’s not Toby!”

Ayla shook off Toby’s hand and stormed away.He wanted to chase her, but Molly prevented him.

“Don’t you dare run after her!”

They were happily shopping earlier, but when they bumped into Ayla, they went back to the villa with displeasure written all over their faces.

On the other hand, Ayla didn’t ruin her own mood because of them.She had already cut them off from her life, due to the fact that her presence would only cause problems to their relationship.

The following day, when Ayla went to work, she received a call from Anna.

“Miss Anna, I’ve already told Ellie to send the designs you asked for,”she said.

“I know.I’ve seen them.But the drafts you sent aren’t at your level!”

Based on Anna’s words, it seemed that she wasn’t satisfied with her designs.

“Is it not to your liking? Miss Anna, what do you think is wrong with them?”asked Ayla.


“I’ll drop by your office later!”Anna dropped the call in anger.

Meanwhile, Ayla just sat at her desk in silence.

Just as she had expected, Anna was going to make things difficult for her.

Less than ten minutes later, Anna came to her office.

As soon as she entered, she slammed all of Ayla’s twenty drawings on her desk.

“Wenny, is this all you can do? Look at these designs! There’s no creativity and finesse to them at all!”

“Miss Anna, if you think I’m not capable enough, then you can design clothes yourself.You don’t really need me anymore, do you?”

Ayla refused to back down.

She believed that she had done her best, but Anna just threw away her designs without respect.

It was natural that she’d be angry about it.

“What’s the matter with you? Don’t forget that you’re just a designer sent by the Starlight.You have to heed my every word!”

Anna glared at Ayla and wondered, ‘Who does she think she is? How dare she talk back to me?’ Getting up from her chair, Ayla picked up her drawings on the desk and the floor one by one.

“Miss Anna, are you the only one who has seen these designs? Did he see them? Isn’t he satisfied with them?”

“Humph! I knew it.You still want to meet and be with Brian, don’t you?”

Anna became even angrier when Ayla mentioned Brian.

“No, I don’t want to see him.If I really wanted to do so, then I wouldn’t be holed up in here, and I would’ve worked in the Clark Group’s head office instead.”

No matter what compromise Ayla made, Anna was still giving her a hard time.

Did she still need to make more concessions?) “Don’t think that you can do what you want just because Yareli is protecting you,”

Anna remarked.

“This has nothing to do with Ms.Evans.”

Ayla fiercely looked back at her.

“Miss Anna, you’re welcome to tell me each and every one of your dissatisfactions.If you’re that displeased with my performance, then maybe it’s time to ask Ms.Evans to have me replaced by someone else.What do you think?”

“Don’t think I won’t dare to do that!”

Anna wasn’t backing down either.She admitted that she was using these drawings to make things difficult for her.She just didn’t want Ayla to pass so easily.

And so, she didn’t show even one of them to Brian.

Instead of doing that, she sent them all back.

“Well, you’re welcome to do whatever you want.If you’re not satisfied, then I’ll revise them.Although, Miss Anna, can you tell me what you think is wrong with my designs?”

Naturally, Ayla knew that Anna was just doing this to give her a hard time.

And sure enough, Anna was unable to say anything.

All she said was that she needed the revised drawings tomorrow and then she left.

‘Tomorrow? How is that possible?’ Ayla didn’t protest and just allowed her to walk away.

Moments later, Ellie walked in.

“Wenny, are you okay? Is there something I can do to help you?”

She was also frightened by Anna’s outburst just now.As a woman, she knew that Anna was deliberately provoking Ayla.Her outburst had nothing to do with the designs.

They looked like two rivals in love who were arguing.

Shaking her head, Ayla replied, “It’s fine.You can carry on with your work.I can do these myself.”

She had mentally prepared herself for the worst.

After that, Ellie went back to her desk.

As soon as Anna returned to the company, she was called to Brian’s office through her phone.

“Brian, what can I do for you?”

“Hasn’t Wenny submitted her designs yet?”

Yesterday, someone told him that Wenny’s drafts had already been sent here.

However, Anna never showed the drawings to him.
