Cassidy just finished serving her mother-in-law a hot cup of tea. But then, as soon as she took a sip of it, she abruptly threw the cup away, losing her cool and composure out of nowhere.
It ended up hitting the marbled floor and breaking into pieces, causing a loud, shattering noise to echo all around the room.
"Ridiculous! Utterly ridiculous...!" Gertrude exclaimed exasperatedly, her brows scrunched tightly together in vex.
"What were you intending to do?! Poison me?!"
"Huh?" was all Cassidy could blurt out in nonplus, her eyes as wide as saucers.
"It tastes very disgusting! The worst I ever have!"
"Oh, ummm... That's..."
"As I thought, you're one incompetent woman! You don't possess any good qualities at all! Not even when it comes to something as small as making tea!"
