The Legal Wife Showed Up
Alice was utterly shocked. The employees who were angry with Rachel‘s sudden intrusion were also startled. Nobody imagined that a woman would appear out of nowhere and slap Alice. Aside from that, the woman was accusing Alice of being a shameless *****. Ivan was the first to regain his composure since he had handled similar situations in the past. His eyes darkened as he thought, ‘Is this the show that Rachel mentioned before?‘ Considering that they were inside the company, it could badly damage the company‘s reputation if this kerfuffle became worse. Ivan pondered for a moment, ready to stop the confrontation between Alice and the woman, but Rachel grabbed his wrist, dragging him back to the seat beside her.
“Miss Bennet,” “Shush!” Rachel pressed her index finger against her lips while staring at him. She then helped him put all the drinks onto the table. Afterwards, she took a cup of coffee, stuck a straw into it, and placed it onto his hand. “Have you ever heard of this saying, Ivan?” she said. “That men shouldn‘t meddle in a war between women, lest they want to suffer the consequences. Just have a cup of coffee and watch the show in silence.” Ivan lowered his head, staring at the cup of coffee in his hand. He then glanced at Rachel in confusion. She was sitting on a chair, casually drinking orange juice while enjoying “the show“.
Noticing that he was looking at her, she said without looking at him, “Stop staring at me. Focus your eyes on them. It‘s not every day that you get to see a show like this one. Such scenes are more interesting than movies and TV dramas. Don‘t miss out on the chance to see it all unfold.
“Miss Bennet, do you recognize that woman?” Ivan directed his gaze towards Alice and the woman, and found that they were now brawling. Suspicion arose in his heart. Clearly, Rachel knew that this woman would show up, and that the woman had a score to settle with Alice. However, it didn‘t seem like Alice knew her at all. ‘Who is that woman, and how did Rachel know about her? Did Rachel hire that woman to incriminate Alice in some way?‘ As those thoughts crossed Ivan‘s mind, his face darkened. “You‘d best not cross any lines, Miss Bennet. Mr. Sullivan has already promised you that he‘ll fire Alice. You didn‘t have to humiliate her like this.” Rachel turned to Ivan, raising her brows at him, “Are you saying that I hired this woman to trouble Alice?”
With a face devoid of emotion, Ivan remained silent. But he did look at her defiantly, as if to say “Am I not telling the truth?”
“You‘re right, I know who that woman is, but I didn‘t hire her to humiliate Alice. Don‘t accuse me of things I didn‘t do.” Rachel took a sip of orange juice, watching those women fight with great satisfaction. This was the first time that she had the pleasure of watching such a dramatic scene unfold. Similar situations happened in the Red Hackers Alliance back when she was still Shelia, but she never had any interest in them. Now that she was reborn, she suddenly felt that she had missed out on so many interesting things in her previous life. Life was all too boring for the old Shelia. As Rachel, she would like to do things she had never done before, and enjoy the things she missed out on. She wanted to make the most out of this life. “You‘re a shameless home–wrecker! You seduced my husband, you *****! I‘ll kill you!” “Ah! Let me go! Someone call the security! You crazy *****! I don’t even know who you are! Why on earth did you slap me?” “Why? Because you‘re a tramp! I‘ve been wondering why my husband has been reluctant to stay at home almost every day, and now I know why! It‘s because of you!” “I don‘t know your husband!” “Oh, you don‘t, huh? That‘s ******* hilarious! If you don‘t know him, how could you afford that dress you‘re wearing right now? I‘ve been working my *** off to support him, and he‘s spending my money on you, you dumb *****! I‘m going to tear you apart!” At the door of the office, Alice and the woman were locked in a heated battle. Both of them were bruised and battered already, but neither showed any desire to be the first one to throw in the towel. They kept pulling each other‘s hair and smashing objects onto each other‘s faces. The people in the office were shocked to see them fighting each other. No one dared to stop them, for they were all afraid of getting caught up in their battle. Upon seeing that the fight was getting worse by the second, Ivan stepped forward again, intending to stop them. However, Rachel prevented him from doing so again. She glared at him and said, “I said, enjoy your coffee, Ivan. Sit down. If you try again to stop them, go ahead and know that I‘m coming with you. They‘re fighting so ferociously right now, and I‘m sure they‘re not even paying us any attention. If something were to happen to me, and potentially hurt Mr. Sullivan‘s successor, do you think you‘ll get away with it?” When Ivan heard that, he immediately stopped Rachel looked at him with satisfaction before leaning back. With a triumphant smile, she added, “Oh, I forgot to tell you. That woman is actually connected to the Sullivan Group.” Ivan looked at Rachel in bewilderment. Her voice was loud enough for everyone in the office to hear. Suddenly, everyone‘s eyes shifted from the fighting women to Rachel, waiting for what she would say next. Rachel blinked and said, “That woman is Wilson‘s wife. You do know Wilson, right? I seem to recall that he‘s the director of the personnel department.”
Right after she said that, a man rushed over. When he saw Alice and the woman brawlingon the ground, worry and fear was plastered on his face. He quickly stepped in to stop them. “Honey, let go of her!” he said to the woman. Everyone in the office were shocked when they heard that. They didn‘t expect that Rachel was telling the truth! The man holding back the unknown woman was the director of Sullivan Group‘s human resources department, Wilson Patel. When his wife saw him, she was livid. She broke free from his arms, slapping him without saying anything. The slap was so hard that Wilson‘s head tilted to the side a little. “How dare you stop me? You still care about this *****? You philandering *******! Wilson! I was so blind to have married you despite my family‘s objection! I left my family for you, while you‘re out here, using my money to support a mistress behind my back, you swine!” Blood seeped from the corner of Alice‘s mouth, which had been injured during the fight. She stood up, disheveled by the heated confrontation. Her face turned pale when she saw Wilson. “Honey, I… I didn‘t do any of that,” Wilson said unconvincingly. He looked really timid in front of his wife. Alice felt humiliated. She thought that if she didn‘t explain her side right now, then her good image in the company that she worked so hard to maintain would be ruined. Her eyes welled up with tears, and she tried to sound as pitiful as she could. “Mrs. Patel, Wilson and I are colleagues, nothing more. There‘s nothing going on between us. How can you accuse me of something so scandalous if you don‘t have the evidence to back it up?” Wilson‘s wife looked at them, her eyes brimming with anger. She chuckled and said, “You think I don‘t have any evidence?”
“Honey, please stop it. We‘re still in my company. Let‘s go home and talk about this, okay?” Wilson was scared when he heard his wife‘s hysterical laughter. He reached out to grab her hand, wanting to take her away. However, she quickly avoided him, and took out her phone to open an email. She threw the phone into Wilsons‘ arms and said, “There‘s the evidence you‘re asking for. You two are beyond shameless! Do you dare say that the people in those photos aren‘t you two?” Wilson didn‘t expect that his wife would be able to get ahold of these photos. His face was filled with anxiety when he caught the phone and saw the photo on the screen clearly. There were three pictures in total. In the first one, Alice and Wilson were walking into a hotel, arm in arm. The second picture showed them kissing passionately at the door of a hotel room. The last photo was taken when they came out of the room. It could be inferred from their faces that they had done something dishonorable in there. The photos were of high quality, and their faces were clearly seen, so there couldn‘t be a mistake. When Alice saw the photos, her pale face turned livid. Quickly, she cried, “Those are fake! They‘re clearly photoshopped! This is a mistake! Someone is trying to set me up on purpose!”
