Chapter 18 Pleaded With Victor
Upon seeing the hesitant look on Andy’s face, Rachel stopped. With a raised eyebrow, she asked, “What’s the matter? Is there something else you want to say?” “Miss Bennet, when are you planning to meet with Mr. Sullivan? Once the liquidation procedure officially starts, stopping it will be nigh impossible.” “I see. I’ll talk to him after lunch.” Rachel let out a helpless sigh. Andy nodded firmly. “Got it. I’ll drive you there, Miss Bennet.” “That’s not necessary. I can get there by myself.” After saying that, she followed Abby downstairs to have lunch. During the meal, Rachel finished an entire bowl of rice, but neither Andy nor Abby had any appetite to eat. Those who weren’t aware of the truth and saw this scene would assume that Andy and Abby were the ones in crippling debt, and Rachel had nothing to do with said debt.
After finishing her meal, Rachel put down her chopsticks and looked at Abby and Andy, noticing that they appeared to be absent-minded. Latest chapters only infobagh.com To get their attention, she cleared her throat.

“Ah… I see.” Abby withdrew her hand, lowered her gaze, and soon her mind began to wander once more. “You two…” After a brief pause, Rachel said, “Are you worried that working for a broke woman like me will put you through so much suffering in the future? Look, you don’t have to worry about my financial burdens. I won’t let either of you help me pay off my debts.” She had always been aloof and indifferent by nature.

I’m not afraid of enduring hardships.Latest chapters only infobagh.com I can even help you pay off your debt!” It seemed that what Rachel said really made Abby worry. “I’m just worried about you.” “You’re worried about me?” asked Rachel. “You’ve been living a luxurious life since you were a kid. As much as I hate to admit it, you might not be able to adapt to a plain and poor lifestyle all of a sudden,” said Abby. Rachel was rendered speechless. At this moment, she felt her heart softened.
But before she could say a word, Andy chimed in. “Miss Bennet, I’d be glad to extend my assistance to you as well. Your mother had done all she could to help me when she was still alive. However, I never got the chance to pay her back. Now, I can take care of you, for her sake.” A smile appeared on Rachel’s lips. Latest chapters only infobagh.com Both of them could’ve just left, and they didn’t have to help her. But they chose to stay. “If I were in your position right now, I would’ve left without a second thought.” Rachel put her elbow against the table, rested her chin on her palm, tapping her face with her fingertips and smiling Abby and Andy exchanged glances for a second, and then they looked at Rachel at the same time.

A loser like this Rachel would’ve folded by now and gave up. But to me, Shelia, it’s a piece of cake! That debt can be paid off by just fulfilling a few orders. There’s no way I’ll surrender and commit suicide.’ “I have faith in you, Miss Bennet,” Abby said with a smile. Andy nodded in agreement. “Miss Bennet, a person undergoes so much suffering because God is preparing them for a great responsibility. I believe with all my heart that you can pull this off.” Rachel was silenced once more. ‘Well, judging by those looks on your faces, I don’t think either of you believe in me at all,’ she thought. The corners of her mouth twitched. She had planned to say that she could really pay off her debts, because when she was still Shelia, she was an outstanding hacker.

A moment later, he raised his head, and asked indifferently, “Is there anything else?” Alice took a step back, lowered her head, and replied, “I want to apologize to you, Mr. Sullivan.”
“Why are you apologizing?” “That party the other night, I knew it was important but … It’s my fault that I wasn’t able to accompany you.Latest chapters only infobagh.com If you want to punish me, Mr. Sullivan, I will accept it wholeheartedly,” said Alice.

That’s why my sister…” Alice paused on purpose, and then changed the topic. “Mr. Sullivan, I promise you that I will not make the same mistake twice.” At the mention of Rachel, Victor was reminded of what happened that night, and it angered
