All Her Secrets Chapter 895 by Chestnut

Chapter 895 Secrets Revealed

Audrey was eager to know what had happened back then. She always believed that Catherine was sent to the countryside by her grandfather. But now, it seemed the truth was not that simple.

Afraid of touching on Catherine’s sensitive topic, Audrey didn’t press for details and instead asked Catherine about her plans.

Catherine calmly looked at her and said, “What else can I do? Just face the challenges as they come.”

She didn’t care about public opinion. ” If you guys have the guts to come after me, then bring it on,” she thought.

Audrey gave Catherine a thumbs-up for her composure and calmness. This was something she would never get the hang of.

Branden placed the cut fruits on the nearby coffee table. He was initially in the kitchen but turned to open the door when the doorbell rang.

“Go ahead, you guys. I’ll be in the study.

“He left the space for the two sisters to talk. Catherine having someone keeping her company put him more at ease. He came back all of a sudden, and there was a bunch of stuff waiting for him at the company.

Seeing how gentle and caring Branden was toward Catherine, Audrey sighed. Deep down, she envied Catherine and pitied herself.

“Never thought Branden would be like this at home. Out there, everyone fears him, but at home, he’s so gentle toward you,” said Audrey.

Sensing Audrey’s emotional change, Catherine tilted her head and asked, ” Had a fight with Brian?”

Seemingly caught off guard by Catherine’s sudden question, Audrey hesitated for a moment before looking away, whispering, “No, just envying you. We didn’t have a fight.”

Catherine lowered her gaze and sneered. “Still trying to hide it from me?”

Audrey was at a loss for words. She didn’t know what Catherine meant by that. It felt like Catherine might know something.

Trying to appear composed, Audrey looked at Catherine. “Hide it from you? No, I have nothing to hide from you. Don’t overthink it.”

Although she spoke firmly, her eyes betrayed her. In front of Catherine, she found it hard to conceal. Catherine’s eyes kept her from fibbing.

Just as she was trying to find an excuse, Catherine’s words exposed her. “Brian has my video. Do you want me to spill on what you’ve traded with him?”

Audrey, shocked, looked at Catherine with disbelief. “How… how do you know?”

She had never told anyone about it, not even a hint to Kim. It led to a fallout with Kim, who accused her of being love -struck and heartless.

But for Catherine, she endured it all. She didn’t understand how Catherine could know about this.

Catherine looked at her, and tears welled up in her eyes. “I found out not long ago.”

She always knew Audrey must have made some deal with Brian or was coerced by him to agree to the relationship. She tried talking to Audrey a few times, but Audrey avoided the topic. So, she had to investigate secretly. If she had known that Audrey was coerced by Brian because of her, she would have dealt with that scum long ago.

Seeing that Catherine already knew everything, Audrey couldn’t hold back the sadness welling up inside. She looked at Catherine with red eyes. Kathy, I’m sorry. It’s all my fault. If not for me, Brian wouldn’t target you.”

Deep inside, she felt an overwhelming sense of guilt toward Catherine, thinking she hadn’t protected Catherine well since childhood, and now Catherine was suffering because of her.

Catherine gave her a tissue, signaling her to wipe away the tears. “It’s not your fault,” Catherine’s comforting words only intensified Audrey’s guilt.

“Kathy, you don’t need to comfort me. If not for me, how could Brian harm you?” said Audrey.

“The video wasn’t sent out by Brian.”

Audrey was momentarily stunned by Catherine’s words. Then she reacted and looked at Catherine. “What do you mean by that? Did Brian have nothing to do with this?”

Catherine nodded.

Audrey was still puzzled. “But he had the video.”

“Yeah, but others do too. He only used the video to threaten you, not release it, ” said Catherine. She had people watch over Brian’s every move. While his methods were despicable, he hadn’t spread the video.

Audrey furrowed her brows. “If it wasn’t Brian, could there really be an unseen hand manipulating things as he said?” she thought. She looked worriedly at Catherine and asked, ” Kathy, do you know who’s behind all this?”

To avoid involving Audrey, Catherine shook her head. “I don’t know. I have too many enemies; it’s hard to pinpoint who it might be.”

This vague response heightened Audrey’s concern. “What should we do? ” she asked.

Enemies lurking in the shadows were the most frightening. Audrey feared something might happen to Catherine again.

Seeing Audrey’s concern, Catherine found an excuse to ease her worries. ” It’s okay. Branden will handle it.”

Audrey’s worried heart calmed down a bit when she heard this. After all, with Branden’s capabilities, if he said he could handle it, then there shouldn’t be a problem.

“That’s good. With Mr. Duncan around, I believe we’ll have results soon,” said Audrey.

Catherine didn’t want the conversation to focus on her. Changing the topic, she asked, “What are your plans regarding Brian now?”

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?"
