To simply find out ??? Instead she just kept putting it offThings just get worse Rod kept begging her for a long time finally she caved She called the person in charge “Nate” and she was awful and rude in that phone call I meant the person didn’t owe her money He offered them a chance to get Rod a better living but she sounded like SHE was doing them a favor What a brat Even if she was suspicious couldn’t she be polite in a phone call? You are 31 yo for goodness’s sake The heroine turned out to be a different person She is bratty ungrateful and simply awful I don’t know what other people see in her They kept excusing her rudeness and awful behaviors She was NOT smart she got E like 3 yo It turned out the person in charge of the new facility was actually Vaughn the hero who Bries was attracted to but claiming to hate He already knew Rod was her brother from their previous phone call but he didn’t tell her his identity because he was afraid that she won’t let Rod go to his facility Well dude you are right She is petty and immature like that When she learned that “Nate” was actually Vaughn she was so mad she punched him Punched him Aren’t you something? The author kept finding excuses for her behaviors but I am not sold The bottom line is if you truly care for your family’s well being you will put aside your personal feeling and grudges You will not deny him a better future just because you feel safer that way and let him rot in a “cell” her word not mine The least you can do is to find out whether it is a better option Not giving excuses like she doesn’t trust it she doesn’t think she can afford it even though they assure her it is free because her brother will be working in the facility to pay for it she hate the hero blah blah blah The author even made me hate the hero a little because he said he admired the heroine for PUNCHING him Pls dear author stop finding excuses for herAndwhen the heroine finally relented to go for a tour in the new facility you won’t guess what happened She wore a shirt that said I know how I look I don’t care I don’t want to be hereHAHAHAHA You think it was cute? What are you five? Woman grow the fuck up You are 31 can’t you be gracious for once? 10 words to describe the heroine bratty bitchy ungrateful immature self centered judgmental rude unprofessional stupid awful I am not sure I can continue after the shirt scene
