Nate’s POV: Rita was nowhere to be found after Lily’s miscarriage. Just when I was trying to look for her again, she showed up in my office. “Did you forge the paternity test results?” I asked her as soon as I saw her. With a surprised expression, she looked at me and asked innocently, “How could that be? Our family doctor was the one who tested Lily. Do you not believe him?” I could not help but sneer as I retorted, “Back then, you even bribed the doctor to hide the fact that your cancer was healed, and you even fooled Charles. How can I know that you’re not trying to trick me in the same way now? Someone has already sent the real paternity test report to my e-mail. What do you have to say about that?”
“Dad, I think you misunderstood me, because that really has nothing to do with me.” Rita chuckled before she continued, “Lily is a scheming woman. She approached you in order to get control over your company. She doesn’t love you at all. If that was not the case, then why would she have gotten pregnant with another man’s child while she was still with you? I am quite certain that she was the one that forged the so-called real paternity test report to make sure that the baby in her belly would be born and inherit your company in the future.” Rita then handed me a document with a smile. “What’s this?” I asked with a frown. “Please read it,” she said with a smile. “And sign the document after you’re done.” “A share transfer agreement?” I looked at her sullenly and added, “You want me to give you all the shares of the company? I am not dead yet, Rita. Just drop that thought, will you?” “Rather than making the company go bankrupt, I think that it would be better if you transferred all the shares to me and let me run the company. You don’t want your lifelong efforts to be destroyed completely, do you?” I glared at her coldly and said, “I think you should leave now.” With a regretful look in her eyes, she closed the file, looked up at me, and said, “Dad, can’t you see reality? This time, you’re going to end up in jail, no matter what you try to prevent it.” I continued to glare at her in silence. But I knew that she was right. The lawyer had also said that I would definitely lose. I wanted to ask for Charles’ help, but he did not seem to want to see me at all. Who else could I turn to now? Perhaps, I could go to Spencer and David. They were just as powerful as Charles, so they might be able to help me. I immediately stood up, turned to Rita, and said irritably, “Get out of here at once!” “Where are you going?” she asked, with a curious look. “None of your business,” I said coldly before I headed out. With a snort, she followed me. I was really annoyed with her. “Don’t follow me!” She shrugged helplessly and said, “Well, this is the only way out of the company.” Leaving her behind, I drove away from there. However, she continued to follow me in her car, and it took a long time before I was finally able to get rid of her. After making sure that she was not following me anymore, I made my way to Spencer’s bar. When I saw Spencer sitting with a beautiful woman, I walked to him with a smile and asked, “Is she your girlfriend? She is so pretty.” Spencer looked up at me and said, “She is a staff in the bar, and not my girlfriend.” I gave him an awkward smile. “Are all your female staffs as pretty as her? I almost thought that she was a star! Spencer, you’re so lucky to have such beautiful women working for you.” Spencer glanced at me indifferently and did not say a word. But the woman smiled at me. Feeling a little embarrassed, I continued, “Spencer, I actually came here to…” Before I could say another word, Spencer interrupted me bluntly. “Save it! I am not helping you.” My smile froze, but I did not want to give up, so I tried to plead, “At least for the sake of my friendship with your father, please help me. I have no one else I can ask now.” Spencer interrupted me again and sneered, “Nate, first I want to know if you did something bad to Scarlett’s father.”
Why was he suddenly asking me about Scarlett’s father?
I put on my best act as I explained, “We were really good friends. Why would I have done anything bad to him?” Spencer chuckled and retorted, “You know whether you did it or not.” Wiping away the sweat on my forehead, I tried to force a smile. “Is there anything else you want to say to me?” he asked with a smile. “If you’ll excuse me, I’ll take my leave, then.” Since he was really unwilling to help me, I had no choice but to turn around and leave.
After Nate left, I took out my phone called Charles. “Guess who came to see me today.” “Stop beating around the bush,” Charles said in a hoarse voice. Why was he sounding so strange?
My curiosity was aroused, and I could not help but make fun of him, “What’s the matter with you? Why do you sound so weak and frail? Are you tired from having too much sex?”
“I have a fever,” Charles replied irritably. I burst into laughter as I continued to mock him so boldly. “Serves you right for pretending to be drunk to deceive Scarlett!” “If you don’t have anything else to say, then I’ll hang up now,” Charles retorted in an unpleasant tone. “Don’t hang up yet! Nate came to see me just now.” I sighed. “Nate and Alex used to be really good friends, and if he really betrayed Alex, then I’m afraid I am going to lose all my faith in true friendships.” After a long moment of silence, Charles said in a low voice, “David, you, and I are always going to be really best friends.”
Upon hearing his heartfelt words, I was a little surprised. “Since you’re not feeling too good, you should take care of yourself. Don’t overexert yourself. And don’t worry, even if you end up dying, I will be more than happy to take over the company and look after your wife and son for you.” “Fuck off!” Charles snorted before he hung up. I couldn’t hold back my laughter as I stared at the phone screen. “You are so childish!” Vivian looked at me as though she was disgusted with me. “Charles and I are really best friends. What do you know about us?” “And you like your best friend’s wife…” Vivian smiled and added, “Don’t you think that Charles might sever relations with you because of Scarlett?” “If I wanted to win Scarlett over, then I would have made a move a long time ago.” Vivian glanced at me, stood up, and patted me on the shoulder. “Don’t be too sad. You don’t deserve her anyway.” Taking a deep breath, I gritted my teeth and hissed, “… I wish I could just bite you to death.” Vivian moved her finger in front of me with a smile. “It’s a crime to murder. Moreover, I am sure that your teeth can’t even sink into my thick skin.” “If you dare to say even one more word, I am going to bite you to shreds!” I said, staring at her fair neck. “I’m leaving, then. Enjoy yourself.” With a warm chuckle, she turned around and left. Watching her receding figure, I could not help but smile to myself.
