“Alex Jefferson, effective immediately, you are no longer employed here. Take off your uniform and scram!”

Alex stepped into the security office and immediately noticed James Langdon, the manager, lounging in his chair. James was sitting behind the desk, puffing on his cigarette as he directed a contemptuous glance in Alex’s direction.

Stunned, Alex frowned and asked, “You’re firing me? On what basis?”

“On what basis?” James burst out laughing. “Don’t you know that your wife’s infidelity is the talk of the town? Four Seas Corporation is the top company in Nebula City. We value our reputation more than anything. Your private affairs have seriously damaged the reputation of our company!”

Alex was taken completely off guard. His face contorted into a scowl as he retorted, “She cheated on me? No way! James, don’t even suggest such a thing! If you have an issue with me, then just get straight to the point. Why do you have to be so despicable as to accuse my wife of something she didn’t do?”

James flashed a smug grin. “Issue with you? Who are you for me to waste my time spreading rumors about your wife?”

Alex clenched his fists as he snarled, “A few days ago, I came to your office to request a day off so that I could attend the parent-teacher meeting at my son’s kindergarten. However, when I arrived, I stumbled across you and the receptionist in the midst of an illicit affair. It seems that you have been harboring a grudge against me ever since. Is that correct? That’s why you want to get rid of me.”

James’ smile froze. He clenched his jaw and spat, “Shut up! Alex, you’re nothing but a fool. Yes, I want you gone! You’re nothing but a piece of trash who lives off of a woman. Who are you to fight against me? I can fire you anytime!”

A smirk played on his lips as he continued, “I didn’t fabricate that rumor. It’s common knowledge in Nebula City that she and Walt Wallace are involved romantically. You don’t seem to be aware of it, do you? Have you been too focused on your job? Ask around if you don’t believe me.”

Alex fixed a menacing glare upon James, his expression darkening with a growing sense of animosity.

Then he took two steps forward.

Slap, slap!

Without warning, he gave James two tight slaps.

“I will leave as you wish, James, but you must prepare my wages accordingly. I expect that my wages will be ready for me when I come back to collect them later today!”

With that, he spun on his heels and left.

“H-Hey!” Fuming with rage, James held his reddened cheek and bellowed, “You scoundrel! How dare you strike me? Don’t move! I’m going to make you pay for this!”

Alex didn’t bother looking back and strode out of the office.

He was done arguing with James.

The moment he stepped out of the building, Alex spotted a few of his coworkers giving him suspicious looks, causing him to furrow his brows.

“Did you hear about his wife becoming Mr. Wallace’s mistress?”

“Of course. I think the whole city knows about it. As a live-in son-in-law, he doesn’t have any rights. He cannot even stop his wife from cheating on him.”

“Oh, that’s normal. Look how useless he is. He’s certainly not the sharpest tool in the shed, so it’s not surprising that Heather would be unfaithful to him. Mr. Wallace is attractive and rich.”

“I heard that Heather Jennings is the prettiest woman in Nebula City. This serves as a lesson to us that we shouldn’t seek a gorgeous wife if we are not wealthy or capable enough. Otherwise, we would have to suffer through infidelity and show up to work with a broken heart, just like Alex did.”

To everyone, Alex had already been cuckolded.

Those who were familiar with him felt bad for him and gave him their heartfelt sympathies, while those who were unacquainted with him cast him scornful looks.

Alex surveyed the crowd frostily. His fists were clenched so tightly that the veins in his hands were bulging, betraying his intense anger.

Alex’s gaze was too terrifying that everyone dared not provoke him further and hurried into the building to get to work.

Heather Jennings, what is this? After marrying into your family, I’ve been doing my very best to be loyal to the family. I have done my best to treat you with respect and kindness. Is this how I am rewarded for my loyalty and dedication?

Alex’s eyes turned red as rage coursed through his veins.

He pulled out his phone and called his wife, Heather.

Ring, ring, ring…

It took a while for the call to be picked up.

“I’m busy. Why did you call?” Heather’s icy voice rang out.

“Where are you?” Alex demanded, trying hard to tamp down his fury.

“I’m at work,” Heather lied.

“Really? I’ll head over to your office now!” Alex responded coldly.

Heather was at a loss for words.

“Heather, tell the loser to come to Room 354 at Hyatt Hotel right away!” Suddenly, Carmen Garnet’s voice could be heard. She was his mother-in-law, and it was obvious she had overheard their conversation.

“Mom, why would you ask him to come?” Heather sounded anxious.

She was flustered. Despite the mounting resentment she had toward Alex, she had once loved him deeply. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have made the decision to marry him in the first place.

However, Alex’s cowardly performance for the past few years had left her feeling completely disheartened and despondent.

She had wanted to steel her nerve before facing Alex and discussing the divorce this evening in the comfort of their home.

Alas, she had no idea Wallace would spread the news on purpose.

Carmen seemed to be standing next to Heather, for her voice was loud and clear. “He should come so you can end things with him in front of everyone!”

Hearing that, Alex ended the call and made his way to Hyatt Hotel on his electric scooter.

His company was located nearby the hotel, so he arrived swiftly after departing from their office.

He pushed the door to the VIP room open to see the Jenningses inside.

Heather’s grandmother, Demi Jennings, her mother, Carmen, her younger brother, Lucas Jennings, her cousin, Jacob Jennings, and many other family members were present.

It appears that the Jenningses have gathered for an important meeting that they neglected to inform me about. However, I’m not going to dwell on that since Heather’s attitude is more important.

His eyes were red as he fixed them on Heather, who was seated in the middle of the room.

Heather seemed to be avoiding his gaze, while the rest cast mocking glances at him.

He had been cuckolded by his wife, and the news had been shared with malicious intent until the whole community was aware of his foolishness.

“You’re here. Good. Head to the Civil Affairs Bureau and begin the process of filing for a divorce,” Carmen said straightforwardly.

Alex’s gaze was unwavering as he stared intently at Heather. After taking a deep breath to compose himself, he asked angrily, “Heather, why did you do this to me? Why did you betray my trust and our marriage?”
