Chapter 582 The Real Mastermind

Edward’s sudden reaction surprised everyone.

The onlookers who were admiring Liana for gaining Edward’s favor were now following his gaze forward.

Step by step, Edward walked up and stood in front of Catherine.

His initially stern expression softened as he saw Catherine.

It was only then that everyone noticed another stunning beauty standing there. She was even more beautiful than Liana.

Liana remained in place and felt extremely awkward. Despite her efforts to get close to Edward, she found herself outshone by Catherine.

She wondered what Catherine had that attracted everyone’s attention.

When Edward saw Catherine, he couldn’t contain his excitement. His voice raised a few notches higher involuntarily.

“Catherine, it’s great to see you again. How did you end up here?”

Catherine smiled faintly and replied softly, “Just accompanying my boyfriend. I heard you were here, so I came over.”

After hearing that Catherine had a boyfriend, Edward was surprised. He then turned to look at Drake behind her.

“Catherine, is this handsome man behind you your boyfriend?”

This question made Drake tensed up.

Although he and Catherine weren’t in that kind of relationship, he was willing to cooperate if Catherine needed him to.

Just as Drake was about to nod, Catherine responded, “No. My boyfriend had some last-minute business and was taken away by a business partner.”

Edward apologetically glanced at Drake, and he was secretly relieved.

He couldn’t believe Catherine would be with someone who seemed so immature. He was not a good match to the powerful aura she exuded.

Jaxton Clayton, seeing that Edward’s attention was on Drake, walked up. Mr. Anderson, this is my son, Drake.”

“So, he is Mr. Clayton’s son. No wonder he is so handsome.”

“Haha. My son inherited his mother’s looks.” Jaxton then turned his gaze to Catherine and asked, “By the way, Mr. Anderson, who is this?”

“Mr. Clayton, let me introduce you!” Edward walked to Catherine’s side and said, “This is our foundation’s trading advisor, Catherine Swann. Our foundation will seek her opinion for all of our major projects. She’s truly a remarkable talent.”

This revelation shocked everyone.

Everyone looked at Catherine in astonishment.

If Edward hadn’t said it himself, no one would believe it.

They never expected a college girl to be the trading advisor behind a global capital operation.

Edward was the public face of the Skybow Group, and Catherine was the real mastermind behind the scenes at the Skybow Group. She was the one holding the true reins of power.

Just a moment ago, Liana was disdainful of Catherine and deemed that she had used means to attract Edward’s attention. Now, she was stunned.

“How is that possible?”

Liana couldn’t help but exclaim loudly, “It’s impossible!”

Her voice was so loud that she attracted everyone’s attention.

Edward looked at Liana in confusion. She seemed somewhat similar to Catherine but lacked Catherine’s powerful aura.

“What do you mean?” Edward asked.

Liana rushed forward. “You must have been deceived by her. She’s just a country girl who grew up in the countryside. How could she be the trading advisor of the Skybow Group? Mr. Anderson, you absolutely cannot be fooled by her!” She explained hurriedly.

The crowd looked at them in curiosity and broke out into chaos.

Jaxton quickly stepped forward. “Miss, you can’t just talk nonsense.”

Liana would say anything to make everyone believe her and tarnish Catherine’s reputation.

“I’m not lying because she’s my sister!”

There was a commotion in the crowd. No one expected things to escalate like this.

Zain and Drake looked at Liana in astonishment. They thought Liana and Catherine looked alike, but they never imagined they to be sisters.

Catherine sometimes thought Liana was foolish beyond the point of redemption.

Edward glanced at Catherine. Seeing her calm demeanor, he breathed a sigh of relief.

He was worried that if Catherine got upset, everyone at the event would suffer.

“Catherine, is she your sister?”

Hearing Edward’s question, Liana looked at Catherine with disdain. She wanted to see if Catherine would dare to lie in public.

Facing the question, Catherine coldly glanced at Liana and said with disdain, “Maybe blood-related, but there’s no connection in terms of intelligence.”

“Haha…” Drake couldn’t help but laugh. He said, “Catherine, I think you have a point. There seems to be a significant IQ difference.”

Not only Drake, but even Edward nodded in agreement.

“I’m just about to say that. Catherine, how can you, being so smart, have such a foolish sister? If I don’t even know who my company’s trading advisor is, I probably won’t have the qualification to stand here today.”

People realized that Edward spoke the truth. To mistake a stranger for a friend was common, but not recognizing one’s boss was ridiculous.

Liana stood still and looked stunned. She wasn’t stupid. She just refused to believe that Catherine could have the ability.

She was like a clown now, subject to public humiliation. She thought Catherine was indeed formidable. No wonder even her father couldn’t defeat Catherine.

Liana stared at Catherine in confusion.

“Tell me. Why? You were sent to the

countryside since childhood. Why are you so capable?”

Seeing her look of desperation, Catherine decided to reveal a little.

“Who told you that being sent to the countryside would make me worthless? Remember that no matter what, I am the daughter of the Swanns family, the granddaughter of Grandpa. I have a better education than you since childhood.”

Liana sat on the ground and stared at Catherine.

Under her mother’s influence, Liana thought Catherine was a jinx, an unwanted child abandoned in the countryside at a young age.

Liana lived in the Swanns family home and considered herself superior to Catherine.

She forgot that, as Catherine said, Catherine was the daughter of the Swanns family, her grandfather’s granddaughter.

As the dominant figure in the family, her grandfather would never allow the Swanns’ daughter to be in such a miserable state.

Even if Catherine was sent to the countryside from a young age, she must have received private tutoring.

If Catherine had shown exceptional intelligence, she would have gained even more.

After looking around, Branden decided to approach the crowd. Then he spotted Catherine.


A familiar voice caught Catherine’s attention, and she turned to see Branden walking toward her.

She took the initiative to grab Branden’s hand and introduced him to Edward who was standing nearby.

“This is my boyfriend, Branden.”

With that simple statement, many were stunned.

A number of them had hopes of approaching her initially.

Even Jaxton couldn’t help but sigh. He thought Catherine was so outstanding that she was clearly out of his son’s league.

Drake stared at Branden. Without even having to compete, Drake knew he could not win.

Catherine Swann, a simple countryside girl, was having a leisurely and carefree life in the countryside. She thought she could have a happy life there for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, life had other plans for her. Her grandfather left a will for her, making her the inheritor of the Swanns’ billion-dollar fortune. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, he also arranged a marriage for her.

Branden Duncan, the only heir of the wealthiest family in Casier, was the dream prince charming of almost all the women in Casier. But Catherine turned him down in public. Instead of being angry about it, he was attracted by Catherine's cold eyes.Although Catherine seemed to be a girl with a simple life in the countryside, she was not simple. What kind of identity did she have? How would she deal with her unexpected fiancé and the opposition from the rest of the Swanns to her inheritance of the Swanns’ fortune?

Chapter 1 Return of the Jinx At Vicente Swann's funeral. As the Swanns were one of the three prominent families in Casier, Vicente's funeral was naturally packed with big shots and members of respected families in Casier. In the noisy venue, the arrival of a girl in a white T-shirt attracted the attention of everyone present. All of the people present were either rich or powerful. Despite being good-looking, the girl wore a cheap and battered T-shirt, setting her apart from everyone else at the funeral. Seeing how she walked straight toward the Swanns family, someone couldn't help asking curiously, "Who is she? Why is she sitting with the Swanns?" "I heard that she is Miss Catherine, the second daughter of the Swanns that had lived away from the family. Vicente only asked her to come back before he died." "Is that so? I heard that Vicente ordered the family to announce his will in front of everyone before he died. I guess she only returned for this!" ... The girl did not know that she had already become the topic of the guests' discussions. She looked calmly ahead with an indifferent expression on her face. Her eyes remained focused on Vicente's portrait in the middle of the venue. Nobody knew what she was thinking about at the time. At the sight of Catherine Swann like this, Liana Swann, the youngest and favorite daughter of the Swanns, couldn't help complaining to her mother, who was sitting next to her. "Mom, what is going on with this country girl? Grandpa has died. Even if she isn't sad, she should at least pretend to cry. What would the others think if the media took a photo of her like this later? She wouldn't even change her clothes when we asked her to. People that don't know better would think that the Swanns have mistreated her!" After hearing her youngest daughter's complaints, Rachael Swann furrowed her brows too. She thought that her youngest daughter did have a point. She never loved Catherine, her daughter from the countryside, dearly. In fact, Catherine pissed Rachael off just one day after she had returned. However, it was not the right time for Rachael to handle Catherine now. She planned to wait until the funeral was over before sending Catherine back to the countryside so that Catherine wouldn't continue to embarrass the Swanns here. Looking up, Rachael saw that her husband had arrived. She comforted her youngest daughter in a low voice, "Liana, be good. Your father is here. Bear with Catherine for now. We need to deal with what is important first!" Liana couldn't show her annoyance towards Catherine in public, so she could only choke back the complaints on the tip of her tongue. Nobody noticed that Catherine, who had been looking straight ahead, smiled lightly. The Swanns never spent time with Catherine, so they wouldn't know she had exceptional hearing. Even though Rachael and Liana spoke in a low voice, Catherine clearly heard every word of their exchange. Her mother truly did not love her! As Catherine stared at Vicente's portrait, her eyes flashed with a faint trace of sadness. Did she have to cry because of pain? ... Korbin Swann walked up the stage slowly. He gave a long speech first and expressed his views about how great Vicente was before finally announcing that the family would publicly announce Vicente's will. As many people knew this beforehand, the crowd was not too surprised. Vicente had a son and daughter. It was a no-brainer who would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. However, nobody understood why Vicente would make sure to make such a fuss to announce his will publicly. Was it just for formality? The lawyer Vicente trusted the most when he was still alive opened the sealed will and read it out loud. "After careful consideration, I, Vicente Swann, leave all my shares of the Swann Corporation, real estate properties, and a 500 million-dollar deposit at the Bank of Nospines to my granddaughter, Catherine Swann..." At the lawyer's words, the crowd gasped in shock. Not even the Swanns, everyone present was dumbfounded. Catherine Swann? Wasn't she the second daughter of the Swanns, the jinx that Vicente sent off to be raised in the countryside when she was young? How could it be? She would inherit the fortune of the Swanns. With their jaws dropped, everyone shared a similar look of horror. Except for Catherine, the center of the discussion. She still looked indifferent, as though nothing had happened. Her eyes were still fixed on Vicente's portrait in the center of the hall. Her lips parted slightly as she spoke in an almost inaudible voice. "Old man, what were you thinking?"
