I was depressed as I watched the company’s stock prices plummeting that morning.
Just when I was lost in thought, the police knocked on my door. I stood up and asked, “Sir, what can I do for you?”
A middle-aged police officer walked in and asked in a serious tone, “Is Rita Lively here?”
Rita stood up at once and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“We suspect you to be involved in an attempted murder case, so please come with us to the police station. I suggest you cooperate with the investigation.” As soon as the policeman finished his words, another younger police office walked to Rita, holding a pair of handcuffs. I immediately lunged forward intending to stop the policeman. “Sir, is there some kind of a misunderstanding?”
“We’ll know that after we investigate the matter,”
the policeman said before he tried to put the handcuffs on Rita.
Rita immediately covered her chest as though she was about to faint.
“Mom, I want to go to the hospital. My heart hurts…”
She leaned against the sofa weakly with a pale face.
Susan immediately held her and said to the policeman, “Sir, my daughter is having a heart attack! Call a doctor.”
“There is no need for that. Take her to the hospital right away,” I said calmly. The policemen glanced at each other before they made way for us. Rita kept looking out of the window on our way and asked, “Mom, are the policemen still on our tail?”
“… I don’t know.” Susan was clearly frightened. She was trembling.
Seeing her like that, I frowned and said in a cold voice, “What are you so afraid of? It’s just the police, and you’re already scared to death!”
Hearing that, Susan calmed down and asked Rita, “What happened?”
“Charles is probably the one trying to sue me…” Rita replied in a low voice.
“Charles wants to sue you?” I asked with a frown.
Shaking her head, Rita said in a voice that was filled with hatred, “No. It’s not him. I am sure that *****, Scarlett, is the one behind all this!”
“The police are following us. Let’s get to the hospital first,” I said indifferently.
Susan looked back and asked in a hurry, “What should we do now?”
“What can they do? Scarlett is fine now. Dad, find me a good lawyer.”
I nodded in reply.
It was clear that Rita was going to have to stay in the hospital for the next few days.
I left the hospital after that, and went to the Moore Group to meet Charles. I wanted to ask him what happened, but he did not seem to want to see me.
Just when I was about to walk out of the door, someone stopped me.
“Hello. Are you Mr. Lively?”
When I turned around, there was a beautiful young woman in front of me. She was wearing a deep-neck tight dress, which emphasized her beautiful figure.
| straightened up my clothes and greeted her, “Hello. Who are you?”
“I’m Lily, a friend of your daughter. It’s a pleasure to meet you, sir.” “Oh, hi, Lily! Are you free to grab some coffee with me?”
Lily smiled at me and nodded in reply.
| stared at her while I sat in the cafe, admiring her.
She had flawless supple skin and beautiful eyes, which made me take a fancy to her at the first sight of her.
“How is Rita doing? Well, I heard that she had a conflict with the others last night,” Lily said slowly.
“She hasn’t been doing that well.” I sighed helplessly.
“Really? What happened to her?”
“Someone is trying to sue her for attempted murder,” I said in a voice that was filled with concern, and Lily looked at me in disbelief.
I was moved. She was not just gorgeous, she was also truly kind-hearted. “Rita could never do such a thing. Besides, I trust her.” Lily tried to comfort me with her kind words.
“I know. I only came to the Moore Group to question Charles about it. But I could not meet him, unfortunately.” Saying that, I took another sip of coffee.
“Well, it looks like we both have the same problem, then. I could not see him, either.” “Are you having some kind of trouble?”
Lily looked at me with a pitiful glance and said in a helpless tone, “It’s not that big a deal. I just wanted to ask Mr. Moore if he could help me get this acting role.”
Hearing that, I immediately offered, “I can help you with that.”
Feeling restless, I could not help but touch her smooth, glass-like hands.
“Thank you.” She seemed to be a little shy as she withdrew her hand with a look of gratitude in her eyes.
While David and I were in the bar, talking, I looked through the French window, and noticed two familiar-looking people sitting in the cafe from across the street. Seeing that, I could not help but look again.
With a curious look in his eyes, David turned to me and asked, “Do you see a beautiful woman there? You seem to be so absorbed.”
glared at him, raised my chin as I glanced at the cafe again, and nodded. “Look! It’s Nate and
David stared at them for a few seconds before he said in a voice filled with contempt, “Should we drug them a little to spice things up?” By then, I noticed that Nate was trying to slide his hand under her clothes, but she seemed to be playing hard to get.
I withdrew my gaze and smiled sarcastically. “Look at them! They’re so ***** that they might end up ******* right in the cafe. These people don’t need drugs at all!”
The second after I said that, Lily and Nate became bolder.
I took out my phone and said, “It’s going to be real fun to take some pictures and send it to Rita.”
However, David stopped me. With an amused look, he said, “It might be even more fun if we let her know after they sleep with each other.”
Agreeing with him, I put away my phone.
When I looked at the cafe again, Nate was holding Lily’s waist as though he was ready to leave with her. I immediately sent someone to follow them. There was no way that I was going to miss such an amazing show.
All of a sudden, we heard some noise, and David and I both turned in the direction.
A girl in a uniform pointed at a man, and said, “You just touched me!”
That seemingly wealthy man looked at the girl and said sarcastically, “Don’t sling mud at me! I almost gagged when I saw how flat-chested you are! I think you must be trying really hard to get married to a rich guy like me, but even if you get naked and kneel before me, I still wouldn’t look at you. I am not that blind to go for a girl like you, *****!”
“Call some of our guys,” David whispered in my ear before he rushed to them.
Before I could even react, he punched that man in the face while protecting the girl behind him.
Observing the situation, I noticed that David seemed to be really protective of her, so I wondered if he had a crush on her.
It was no wonder that he was suddenly acting like a hero, saving the damsel in distress.
I called over some of our men. We needed to at least seem aggressive and intimidating.
The wealthy man covered his face, glaring at David. “Who the **** are you? How dare you meddle in my business?”
Without saying a word to him, David raised his leg and kicked him hard in the chest.
The wealthy man fell to the ground and was not able to get up. He looked at his companions and ordered them, “**** it! Teach this ******* a lesson!”
Rubbing my palms excitedly, I kicked my bodyguards’ **** and said, “Go get them!”
While the bar was in chaos, I seized the opportunity to step on the wealthy man’s hand, enjoying his painful scream.
Just when I was fighting with all I got, I suddenly noticed that two people were missing.
Where did David and the girl go?
“**** it! Did they really just run away and leave me to handle this?!” | cursed while smashed the wine bottle in my hand on their heads to vent my anger.
